Free Bets Online

At MyBettingSites.com, we constantly update our pages with all the latest (and best) betting site offers available to online bettors in the UK.

Punters love very few things more than free bets.

Fortunately, we’ve collated all of the best free bet offers on this page so that you don’t have to go through the rigorous task of finding them yourself!

As well as listing free online bets, we also rate and review the betting sites that offer these deals. You can find everything you need to know about each bookie and its offers without leaving My Betting Sites.

Free Bet FAQs

Free bets are very straightforward, but that doesn't mean we don't get lots of questions about them. See the most commonly asked questions below.

Which Bookies Offer Free Bets?

Loads of bookies offer free bets - the betting site experts here at My Betting Sites reckon these are the best of the bunch:

How Do I Get Free Online Bets?

While it’s true that free bets are regularly available for existing customers, the absolute best time to bag yourself these freebies is when you first sign up with a betting site.

There’s loads of decent sign up offers to pick from: We’ve listed the best free bet welcome bonuses on this page.

Are New Customer Free Bets Worth It?

There are so many fantastic-looking online betting sign up offers that it’s sometimes hard to work out which ones are actually worth your time.

That’s where the experts at My Betting Sites come in!

We’ve made sure that our Free Bets page includes all the information you need to decide if a new customer offer is right for you. The key thing to remember is to check terms and conditions for things like wagering requirements, expiry time, minimum odds and eligible markets (luckily for you, we’ve got that information readily available for every free bet offer we list on our site).

Do Free Sports Bets Expire?

It depends on the bookie and varies per deal, but often sign up offers will have a validity period and you may have to place your credited free bets within somewhere between 7 and 30 days.

What Are The Best Free Bet Offers?

Our experts recommend you seek out the free bet offers with either small or no wagering requirements and ideally no (or low) minimum odds restrictions.

The more freedom you have and the more realistic it is to turn the free bet funds into cash, the better.

UK Bookies currently offering deals that fit these criteria include 888Sport, Betfair, Kwiff, and BetUK.

Do ‘Free Bet No Deposit’ Offers Actually Exist?

The overwhelming majority of free bet offers require an initial deposit or bet.

However, some bookies may run limited-time offers for a no deposit free bet, especially new companies looking to acquire customers upon launch.

Another way to earn yourself some free bets without having to make deposits is by getting stuck into some free-to-play games which offer cash and free bets as prizes, like 888Sport’s Up for 8, Paddy Power’s Beat the Drop, and Betway’s 4 to Win.

Best Free Bet Offers

Luther Vandross and Janet Jackson are adamant that the best things in life are free, and we’re inclined to agree. Happily, so are UK online bookies, which means British punters have plenty to choose from when it comes to free bet offers.

MyBettingsites.com operates across a wide range of countries (and we’ve reviewed countless online betting sites across the seven seas). No other jurisdiction comes close to the UK in the free bets department.

In other territories, deposit bonuses are often more common as welcome offers, but on Blighty you'll be grabbing free bets from most of the top bookies when you create your accounts.

The popularity of free bets is largely down to their simplicity, and the fact that you get your winnings paid in cash in most, if not all, cases.

Unsurprisingly, the more established betting sites have the best free bet offers, but some new bookmakers also have excellent free bet promotions and bonuses because they need to give new punters (who might already have accounts with the big dogs) a strong incentive to sign up with them.

Best UK Free Bet Offers

Coral Free Bets

Bet £5 get £20 in Free bets

Coral has been a mainstay of the British betting scene for decades. However, it’s not resting on its laurels and relying on its strong reputation, instead it continues to offer some of the best free bet offers around, for both new and existing punters.

Claim £20 offer

18+ Eligible UK+IRE players. Paypal & some deposit & bet types excl. Min first £5 bet within 14 days of account reg at min odds 1/2 = 4x £5 free bets. Free bets valid for 7 days, stake not returned. No cash-out, restrictions & T&Cs apply.


Ladbrokes Free Bets

Bet £5 get £20 in Free Bets

Like Coral, Ladbrokes is a high-street brand that has made a successful transition to the digital realm. Ladbrokes is well-known for its boosted odds promos, but it also offers a decent amount of opportunities for punters to bag free bets on sign up or via things like its 1-2-Free prediction game.

Claim £20 offer

18+ New UK+IRE customers. Paypal and certain deposit types excluded. Min £5 bet within 14 days of account reg at min odds 1/2 = 4x £5 free bets. Free bets valid for 7 days on sports, stake not returned. Not eligible for Casino Welcome Offer. No cashout, restrictions + T&Cs apply.


William Hill Free Bets

Bet £10 get £30 in Free Bets

A firm favourite of My Betting Sites reviewer Ryan, William Hill customers looking for free bets are very well served. Not only is there a tasty sign up offer, but there’s also daily chances to boost your account for free with Scratch of the Day, Free or 4, and The Bonus Drop.

Claim £30 offer

New customers using Promo code H30 only, Min £10/€10 stake, min odds 1/2, free bets paid as 2 x £15/€15, free bets credited after settlement of first qualifying bet, free bets will expire 30 days after the qualifying bet is placed, payment method/player/country restrictions apply.


How Do Free Bets Work?

Betting site free bets (sometimes also called free bet ‘tokens’ or ‘credits’) are one of a number of different welcome bonuses that UK online bookmakers give to new customers.

Existing customers of sportsbooks can also be the beneficiary of free bets, perhaps as a reward for loyalty, or a way for bookies to re-engage you.

Paddys Rewards Club

Paddy's Rewards Club gives punters the chance to get weekly free bets.

Lots of bookies, like Paddy Power and Betway for example, now have some kind of free bet ‘club’. If you opt in to these promos, you can earn free bets if you wager a certain amount each week.

If your free bet wins, you usually receive the winnings as cash rather than bonus funds, but you won’t have the stake returned.

Generally with free bets, you’re credited with the bet by the bookie after meeting certain requirements, and you can place it on any event - though there may be restrictions on the markets you can use your free bet on and the minimum odds at which your free bet wager can be placed.

Risk-Free Bets

A ‘risk-free’ bet is a variation of a free bet which requires you to place a wager with your own money to begin with.

What makes it 'risk-free' is the fact that you get your money back if your bet loses.

Depending on the terms of the offer, you could get your refund in cash or as a free bet.

Of course, it’s better if you get your money back as cash: If your stake is returned as a free bet, there is still the risk that you'll lose with that free bet.

These types of promotions are quite commonly seen both as sign up bonuses or existing customer promotions. The new customer offers tend to be better, but if you register with a bookie that provides these deals regularly over time, that’s obviously a huge plus.

Stricter compliance requirements means that many UK online bookies are ditching the words ‘risk-free’ from their promotional material (there’s always an element of risk involved in sports betting and you should of course always gamble responsibly).

That means you’ll increasingly see wording like ‘Money Back as a Free Bet’ or ‘First Loss Refunded in Cash’ to describe these types of offers.

Paddy Power Free Bet Offers

Money Back in Cash up to £20
+ a £5 Bet Builder free bet!

Paddy Power has made its name by cheeky advertising of its products and betting offers, and any free bets page would lack credibility if it didn’t include a mention of Paddy. The sign up offer is great and there are a ton of different ongoing promotions for UK punters (including loads of free bet offers).

Claim £25 offer

New customers only. Place your FIRST bet on any sportsbook market and if it loses we will refund your stake in CASH. Max refund for this offer is £20. Only deposits made using cards or Apple Pay will qualify for this promotion. T&Cs apply.


Bet 10 Get 30 Offers

‘Bet Get’ offers are a personal favourite of mine. They are simple to understand and often quite lucrative.

Essentially, Bet Get offers are free bet offers under a different name. Over recent years they have become arguably the most popular type of sign up offer at UK online bookies.

As the name suggests, you’ll get rewarded with a certain amount of free bets if you make a qualifying deposit or bet. The most common variation is probably Bet £10 Get £30, but there are loads of other bookies that offer similar deals with more valuable freebies or lower qualifying deposits/bets.

You can check out this section of our betting offers page for more info on the top Bet Get offers available at the moment.

What Makes a Great Free Bet Offer?

If you are going to go through the process of registering with a bookmaker, you want to make sure that they, and the free bets they offer, are worth your time.

Not all betting site free bet offers are the same. There are a variety of things you should look out for when determining which free bets to claim.

Value of Free Bets

The most obvious factor to take into account is the size of the free bet(s). This will be made clear by the bookie without having to look too deep into the small print.

Wagering Requirements

More common with matched deposit sign up offers, but sometimes also seen with free bet promotions. Wagering requirements indicate how many times your bonus funds must be turned over (wagered) before the money becomes withdrawable as cash.

Minimum Odds

Qualifying bets may have minimum odds, and so can the free bet itself. Be sure to read the terms and conditions so that you don’t end up unknowingly placing bets that don’t count towards the free bet promotion.

Eligible Markets

Some betting site free bets are fine to be used on any market, but some might only apply to single bets, pre-match bets, accumulators, or other bet types. If it is a seasonal offer around a certain tournament, your qualifying bet might have to be placed on a particular event.

Expiry Date

It is standard for free bets to have a validity period. Once you have been credited with them, make sure you use it before that period ends, otherwise you may lose the free bets. There may also be a timeframe from which you have to make a qualifying bet or deposit after registering as a new customer with a bookie.

Best Free Sign Up Bet Offer (Editor’s Pick)

Betfair Money Back in Cash Offer
Ryan Davis

Ryan Davis

Picking a single free sign up bet offer from the multitude available is a pretty tough gig, but that’s why I get paid the big bucks. At the moment, my favourite free sign up bet offer has to be Betfair’s Money Back in Cash (up to £20) if your first bet loses.

It’s a free bet offer that’s even better than a free bet offer, if that makes sense… If not, allow me to explain.

Betfair Money Back As Cash Offer
Click the image above to claim the offer!

With most free bet offers, you get rewarded with free bets (hence the name!). That means you have to use that bonus with the same bookie. With a ‘money back as cash’ offer, it is literally a £20 free hit. If it loses, you’ll get your £20 back and can withdraw as cash, or spend on any other market without the restrictions that often come with a free bet.

The fact that it’s a cash offer elevates this one above many of the others around at the moment.

It’s also worth noting that the Betfair Sportsbook is probably one of the best around, and the Betfair Exchange is definitely the best around.

Free Football Bets

Football is the most popular sport in the world. Naturally, lots of people want to bet on it.

This gives gambling companies a chance to bring in new customers by offering free bets and free bet offers that are specific to football.

Probably the best time to bag yourself a free bet on the footy is around the start of competitions where bookies are trying to drum up interest in the event.

The Premier League and Champions League are obvious candidates and major international tournaments like the World Cup and European Championships are great too - you’ll see lots of bookies popping up with free football bets and welcome offers around these events.

Spreadex Bet 10 Get 30

Spreadex off new customers £30 in free bets plus best odds on all Premier League matches, making it a great option for footy punters.

Not only do sportsbooks give punters the chance to claim free football bets, they also run regular promotions and odds boosts to keep bettors engaged and provide constant value.

For example, enhanced odds sign up offers are commonplace in the UK. For these promotions, the betting site offers high odds on a likely outcome and typically pays out the extra winnings in free bets.

We've got a dedicated Football Betting Sites page if you want more info on footy betting:

Bet365 Free Bet Offer

Bet £10 Get £50 in Free Bets

If you’re looking for the best site to bet on football, it’s hard to look past Bet365. It has a truly colossal amount of matches that go in-play (many of which are live-streamed) and Bet365’s sign up and existing customer free bet offers are top class, too.

888 Sport European Football Offer

This European Football free bet promo is one of several top deals on offer at 888Sport.

Bookies know everyone loves the Champions League, so you’ll often find decent free bet offers specific to the UCL and other European competitions (like the one above at 888Sport).

Horse Racing Free Bets

Horse Racing and betting go hand in hand. Always have done, always will. And where there’s betting, there’s also almost certainly going to be free bets.

Like with footy and other sports, bookies regularly offer freebies to racing punters.

These come in different shapes and sizes, for example sign up offers or money back offers for existing customers who place bets.

Paddy Power Horse Racing Free Bets

Paddy Power often has racing free bet offers on the go.

Grand National Free Bets

The Grand National is by far the most bet-on horse race of the UK & Irish calendar.

My siblings know nothing about horse racing but will always stick some money on one of the runners. I imagine there are similar stories across the land about casual punters getting involved and, surprise surprise:

When bookies know there are casual punters about, they ramp up the free bet offers.

This sort of context means that the Grand National is a fantastic event to pick up great free bet offers, whether you’re an experienced bettor looking to eke out an extra percentage point on your ROI, or you just want to stick a tenner on the jockey with the fanciest silks.

We've written loads more useful words about the National and Horse Racing betting sites in general on our dedicated racing page - which you can access via the link below:

Betting Apps With Free Bets

Online betting is mostly done on mobile devices these days. Maybe someday Zuckerberg will work out some way to integrate sports betting into the Metaverse and do one of his quite discomforting launch videos about it but, for now at least, mobile betting means phones and tablets.

SBK 20 risk free sign up offer updated

App-only bookie SBK has a great free bets (cash refund on first loss) sign up offer

Online sports betting works brilliantly on mobile devices, especially with the advent of in-play markets and cash out over recent years which really enhance the second-screen style experience when punters are watching events live.

Lots of bookies have spent significant time and money developing shiny new dedicated mobile apps, and they want you to use them.

That means some bookies offer free bets that are only available via mobile devices.

Free Bet Promotions (Existing Customers)

We’ve talked a lot so far about sign up offers for new customers. As mentioned, these are almost always the most lucrative offers on the table as the most important thing for an online bookie is to get your through the door and use their site.

However, that doesn’t mean it isn’t important for the bookies to retain your custom after you’ve exhausted (or maxed out) your welcome bonus - there are plenty of opportunities for existing customers to earn free bets, too.

Look out for event-specific or time-limited offers that are regularly available for existing customers.

Loyalty and reward programs are another way that existing customers can cop some free bets.

Our best advice would be to open up your options. Rather than limiting yourself to a single account, it’s a good idea to open several. That way, you can utilise multiple sign up offers while also being ready to take advantage of any existing customer offers as and when they become available with different operators.

‘Free Bet No Deposit’ Offers - Too Good to be True?

In short - no.

In long - there are so many sites that proclaim to have free bet no deposit codes for new customers coming out of their ears, when in reality they aren’t being entirely truthful.

It is very, very rare in the UK market to find a sign up offer for sports betting that gets you free bets without you having to spend a penny (however, rest assured that My Betting Sites is the place to find them if they do pop up).

As an existing customer, the easiest and best way to bag yourself free bets without depositing any money is by playing free-to-play games (like Betway's 4 To Win and Paddy Power's Beat the Drop):

I’m not going to bore you with the details here as it’s a pretty wide-ranging topic and to be honest you’re here for free bets, not free spins. But if you are interested in learning more about this stuff, check out the in-depth overview of casino bonus offers at Bookies Bonuses (our sister site):

Free Bets - Conclusion
