Sky Bet: Free Bet, Promotions and Bonuses

Sky Bet £10 No Deposit Free Bet Details

Sky Bet is part of the BSkyB empire and they very kindly offer a free bet each and every week as well as an amazing no deposit free bet of £10 when you first sign up with them.

This is a sensational offer for people new to gambling and, in addition, the Sky Bet Club offers a nice £5 free bet each and every week as long as you place a qualifying bet by 23.59 on Sunday.

For the initial £10 free bet just join up with the bookie and they’ll credit it to your account – you don’t need to spend even a pound of your own money. Your free bet will be credited immediately and there are no minimum odds for that, though the stake is not returned when you use your freebie.

New customers and existing Sky Bet customers will also get a £5 free bet credited by 7pm on Monday provided they have placed qualifying bets totalling £25 or more by 23.59 the previous Sunday. The qualifying best must be placed at betting odds of at least evens (2.00 in decimal odds) and can be placed on any sport.

The stake is not returned with the £5 free bet from Sky and it is valid for seven days, after which it will expire. You cannot use your free bet from the previous week to qualify for a free bet the following week and if you miss a week – that is to say don’t place at least £25 of paid bets at evens – you will have to place bets worth £40 for one week to get back into the Sky Bet Free Bet Club and start earning those £5 free bets again.

This is a unique offer from Sky Bet and with a £5 free bet on offer every week you could claim a huge £260 in free bets every year on top of the £10 free bet when you first sign up.

Sky Bet Bookmaker Review

As mentioned, Sky Bet is a part of the BSkyB empire, so you can go via the website or the famous red button all whilst watching the big game. Sky Bet is a good solid bookmaker with some nice little touches on the site and excellent footy odds and that’s before we mention the unlimited £5 free bets available through the Free Bet Club.

They are British-based, with HQ split between London and Leeds, though most of the sports betting operation is based in Leeds. The history of the company starts in 2000, when BSkyB bought Sports Internet Group, which included the betting operation Surrey Sports. This was rebranded and expanded in 2002 with further growth in 2006 as they brought Totalbet and Ukbetting into the fold.

They have continued to expand and now offer Sky Vegas for casino games, Sky Poker for, would you credit it, poker – there is also a television channel of the same name and Sky Bingo.

As you would expect from a bookmaker with such substantial backing they are totally safe, secure and trustworthy. They are also a polished offering with plenty of extras, such as access to Sky Sports News Radio, Sky Sports Score Centre, a form and stats service and Sky Bet Extra. The website is simply laid out, with easy and quick access to all the markets. They cover a good range of sports with a growing US focus and excellent coverage of specials and big events with inventive and generous markets. Their odds on the main events are reasonable and, as you might expect from Sky, good for football.

Their customer service is good, with live chat available 24/7, and they also have a good selection of FAQs and instructional videos. They have some nice little touches, such as the way the maximum bet is shown as you try to place a bet, and the “Boss?Look Busy!!” button that hides the website and shows spreadsheets instead!

Overall they are a solid addition to your bookmaker portfolio and their bonus package, including the £10 no deposit free bet and the £5 free bet each and every week, makes them an excellent bookmaker so read on and sign up!
