Betfair Sportsbook: £100 in Free Bets Offer

Betfair £100 in Free Bets Offer Details

Betfair Free Bet Offer

The Betfair Exchange – for which they are best known – does not need to promote themselves by using a free bet as they are by far and away the dominant betting exchange but in recent times the company has focussed more and more on their Sportsbook which works just like a standard online bookie.

The Betfair Sportsbook has a great offer for FBFT readers – just bet 5 x £10 bets at odds of 1/2 or greater and you’ll be given a £20 free bet. You can then repeat the process another four times given you a total haul of £100 in free bets.

This is a particularly good offer for punters who like placing a few small-stakes bets to spread the risk, and you’ll be rewarded if you do. See the terms and conditions at the Betfair site, but note that this is for new customers only (aged 18+). 

New customer offer. Place 5 x £10 or more bets to receive £20 in free bets. Repeat up to 5 times to receive maximum £100 bonus. Min odds 1/2 (1.5). Exchange bets excluded. T&Cs apply.

Betfair Bookmaker Review

Betfair is the daddy of the exchanges, like Pele, Einstein and Bill Gates rolled into one, huge, gambling playground. A British company, founded by now-mega-rich cyber geeks (probably), Betfair offers great odds, an amazing range of markets (although not as many unusual specials as some bookies), unparalleled in-play options and a site that is incredibly easy to use.

Being an exchange there is no danger of being limited when our tips keep on winning and of course you can lay bets to lock in a profit. The free bets we are talking about here are for the sportsbook which works just like any other normal betting site but with a number of great advantages. Because Betfair have vast resources, they are able to offer superb promotions, whilst they also match the exchange prices on certain Sportsbook bets, meaning the best of both worlds.

Betfair is 100% safe and secure and customer service is British-based, fast and efficient. The odds – when factoring in the initial 5% commission in the exchange or in the Sportsbook generally – mean that Betfair is an absolute must-have in any serious gambler’s range of active accounts, whilst the promotions and freebies flying around in the Sportsbook mean you really can have your cake AND eat it at Betfair.

Things we like about Betfair

– Amazing odds on most events
– Superb in-play betting
– They offer a wide range of promotions

Things Betfair could improve

– Site doesn’t feel quite as slick as those of some rivals
– Customer Service sometimes slow to respond

  • Betfair have a variety of promotions running at any one time and also have many competitions with prizes such as replica shirts and tickets to sporting events.

    Recent promotions have included a “Prize Mountain” where prizes could be claimed with Betfair points, free bets up to £50 for new mobile users and an excellent “Mega Minute” promo where a bet of £10 entered you into a competition to guess the time of the first goal in a particular game – with large cash prizes available. They also frequently offer stake refunds for losing multiple bets (usually if one leg lets you down).

    One of the best promotions around, Betfair’s Cashback Extra, allows you to choose your own promotion, with a range of offers, usually on football and rugby, that allow you to choose what event – for example a red card – will trigger the free bet cashback. Betfair also have loads of promotions on golf, cricket and racing so if you like extra betting value, the Sportsbook at Betfair is simply a must.

    As well as the free bets worth £30 for new customers and regular ongoing promotions for sports betting, Betfair also offer a variety of other freebies as they look to branch out from the basic sports exchange model. For instance, if you are a fan of online casinos you will certainly be interested in the bonuses available when joining Betfair Casino!

    They also offer bonuses for their other products including poker, exchange games and bingo.
