Sportingbet Free Bet, Promotions and Bonuses

Sportingbet Free Bet, Promotions and Bonuses

Sportingbet are relative newcomers to the gambling block, having been founded in 1997, the year New Labour came to power, wi-fi was invented and Tiger Woods became the youngest ever golfer to win the US Masters. Who cares about that though, when Sportingbet are offering free bets? New customers can claim a Free Bet of up to £50, which is one of the more generous free bets going.

FBFT readers who join Sportingbet and bet between £10 and £50 at odds of at least 1/5 – or 1.2 in decimal “money” – will get a free matched bet of the same value. The free bet is credited within 24 hours of the qualifying bet settling, must be used within a further seven days and the stake, like with most free bets, is not returned with your winnings.

That’s about it but, to get the full lowdown, including full terms and conditions, go to the Sportingbet site.

Other Promotions

The £50 free bet is a generous offer but Sportingbet don’t stop there. They give away a further £50 free bet away every week via a competition on their podcast, have ongoing promotions such as their recent “Late Goal Heartache” where certain losing bets are refunded if they lose due to a late goal as well as other regular cashback offers. There is also a nice £5 free bet for mobile betting – basically a BOGOF offer if you use their mobile phone platform.

As well as the free bet for new customers and the other promotions mentioned above for sports betting, Sportingbet also offer a huge variety of other freebies for casino, poker and games fans. Information on these is detailed below:

Sportingbet Casino – Sportingbet offer something a little different in the casino with a bonus of up to £200. The difference is the bonus amount is random, between £5 and £200 and is triggered by just £5 of casino wagering. They also offer a monthly bonus of up to £1500 and a good loyalty scheme.

Sportingbet Poker – They use the Paradise Poker platform and offer a HUGE 200% bonus for new customers up to a maximum of EUR1000!


Sportingbet Games – New players can get a £20 free bonus and again there is a whopping monthly bonus to a maximum of £1500 each and every month. One for serious gamers! There is also an additional nice and easy £20 free bonus for new customers to Sportingbet’s 1v1 games. This is similar to other bookies’ Head-to-Head games and you can play great skill games like brag, blackjack and backgammon.

With well over £1000 worth of free bets, offers and bonuses from Sportingbet – including the free bet of £50 in the sportsbook – and potentially much more in winnings, it goes without saying that Sportingbet is well worth joining. But I’ll say it anyway, just to make sure!

NB – different terms and conditions apply to all these free bets and bonuses so please check the Sportingbet website for full details.
