Ladbrokes Free Bet Prizes: How to Claim
If you make one or more correct score prediction, you don't need to do anything else: the Free Bet or cash prize will be credited to your account shortly after the final game has ended. It's as simple as that.
The prizes for correct predictions on Ladbrokes 1-2-Free are:
1 correct result: £1 Free Bet
2 correct results: £5 Free Bet
3 correct results: £100 Cash
If you get all three scores right, the £100 cash prize comes with no restrictions or strings attached - it's just cold, hard, withdrawable cash.
1-2-Free Top Tip
With some other free-to-play prediction games on offer at other online bookies, the top prize is split when there are multiple winners in a single game week.
This is not the case with Ladbrokes 1-2-Free: If you predict three scores correctly, then you get £100 in cash - it doesn't matter how many other players also nail all three games.
This is a key point because it should help you shape how you approach picking your scores:
On Ladbrokes 1-2-Free, there is much greater value in picking three likely scores than three unlikely scores.
In games when the prize is split between all winners, it's not worth your while plumping for the most likely scores as other people will also do the same, so your winnings will be diluted if you predict correctly.
