There are a number of factors you should take into consideration when signing up to a bookmaker and the number and the quality of the offers should definitely be one of them. Betting promotions can provide additional value to your bets and can result in increased returns and a lower risk of losing your stake.
They come in various forms and can be focussed on different sports. Some of the most popular types of online bookie promotions include free bets, refunds (either as free bets, bonuses or cash), best odds guaranteed and price boosts. Some bookies provide customers with more offers than others and so the team at WhichBookie have scoured their websites to find you the best promotions available.
We’ve categorised the free bets and promotions that we have found by bookmaker which can be seen in the drop-down list above. Simply click on a bookmaker to see the available promos and from there you can select an offer to read more about it.
Sign up offers are available at the vast majority of bookies and provide a great chance to try out a bookmaker and collect some free bets, bonuses or enhanced odds when doing so. Depending on the operator, they can come in various forms and have different values. For example, new customers at Bet365 can receive up to £50 in free bets (see below for details) whereas new customers at LiveScore Bet receive £20 in free bets. However, despite the difference in values, many of them are worth claiming and by opening accounts with multiple bookies, you’ll be able to claim further free bets and take advantage of additional promotions that are available to existing members.
Bet £10 & Get £50 in Free Bets for new customers at bet365. Min deposit requirement. Free Bets are paid as Bet Credits and are available for use upon settlement of bets to value of qualifying deposit. Min odds, bet and payment method exclusions apply. Returns exclude Bet Credits stake. Time limits and T&Cs apply. #ad
When claiming a bookmaker sign up bonus, here are a few things to consider:
As mentioned above, there are various types of promotions that can be categorised differently. The first offer which you’ll most likely come across when registering an account with a bookmaker is the welcome offer. These are generally free bets, bonuses or odds boosts which can only be claimed once. These promotions are usually of quite high value as their intentions are to encourage you to sign up and make a deposit. There are a lot of very good welcome bonuses available from some of the top bookies and the majority of them are worth taking advantage of.
However, the welcome bonuses are just the start as the best bookmakers reward existing customers with more promotions after registering. Bookmaker promotions for existing customers vary in type and value but shouldn’t be overlooked. Promotions such as Best Odds Guaranteed and ‘Money Back if 2nd’ can be found regularly from a number of bookmakers and are extremely popular with horse racing punters. For those who prefer to wager on football, there are numerous free bet and refund promotions available. Some of the more popular ones include ‘Bet & Get’ free bets such as ‘Wager £10 on football this weekend and get a £5 free bet’, price boosts on Premier league matches and early payouts where your bet will be settled as a winner if the team you back goes two goals up at any point in the game.
Another extremely popular offer is Acca Insurance. Many punters like to place accumulators on football and other sports and a number of bookmakers offer customers their stake back as a free bet should all but one of their selections win. As well as easing the pain of a losing Acca, Acca insurance provides tremendous value to your bets in the long term.
Bookmaker offers come and go which makes keeping track of them difficult to do. That’s why the team here at WhichBookie scour the bookmaker websites on a regular basis to bring you the best and latest betting promotions.
Using the drop-down list above, you can select a bookmaker and view the latest betting offers for that bookie. We provide information for all of the promotions that we list, including any important terms and conditions you should look out for.
As you will know if you bet online on a regular basis, bookies are always looking for new ways to excite customers via promotions and bonuses. Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen new betting offers emerge such as William Hill Golden Goal and Bet365 Early Payout. WhichBookie brings you these promos as soon as they’re released and provides you with all the information you’ll need.
It’s no surprise that the majority of bookmakers run promos on football on a regular basis. Football, along with horse racing are the most popular sports to bet on and with matches taking place around the world throughout every single day, there is always an opportunity to place a bet. Because there are so many opportunities to bet, betting sites want your business and want you to place your bets with them over their competitors. Thankfully, for you, this means that bookmakers hand out a number of footy promotions to try and entice customers in.
Football promos come in various forms. The most common are free bets which are usually credited when a cash wager has been made. For example, Bet £10 on Saturday’s football and get a £5 free bet to use on Sunday’s football’. However, there are countless other football offers around. You’ll find the best ones listed here on WhichBookie in the list above. Others commonly found include price boosts, money back if 0-0, early payouts (2 Up), including bookmaker specific promotions such as Betfred’s Double Delight & Hat-Trick Heaven.
With football matches taking place all year round, there are offers to take advantage of on a regular basis. You’ll find Champions league betting offers available throughout the tournament and the same for the Premier League during the regular season. Be sure to keep an eye on this page for the latest football betting offers for the big matches.
Horse racing promotions are extremely popular also and there are many different types about. Some of the most popular horse racing promotions are Best Odds Guaranteed, Extra Places and Money Back if 2nd. These horse racing promotions are generally available on a daily basis from various bookmakers and are a favourite with many horse racing punters.
If you wager on horse racing regularly then you’ll want to be betting with a bookmaker that has these and more available. Betfred and Ladbrokes are two bookmakers that are great for horse racing promotions. Best Odds Guaranteed can return huge unexpected amounts of additional profit and Money Back if 2nd and Extra Places can give you your stake back on occasion to have another go if you wish.
There are horse racing promotions available all year round but you will find an increased number available in the run-up to and during major horse racing meetings and festivals. So, if you’re looking for Cheltenham betting offers, or ones for the Grand National, be sure to visit WhichBookie where they’ll be posted when they become available.
Some bookmakers offer bonuses on certain bet types that can have a lot of value. The most common bonuses that you’ll find available at several bookies are Lucky 15 Bonuses and Accumulator Bonuses.
The Lucky 15 is a very popular type of bet. Mainly because it’s possible to win very large sums of money with a relatively low stake. Lucky 15’s are bets that consist of four selections but instead of a simple accumulator, the bet takes all possible combinations into account and places a separate bet on each. A Lucky 15 consists of:
All of the 15 bets listed above consist of different combinations of your four selections.
Some bookmakers award bonuses on these bets and these are usually credited either when all your selections come in or only one does.
For example, Betfred award customers with a 10% bonus when all four of your selections win in a Lucky 15 bet. They will also give you 3x the odds when only one of your selections wins.
Accumulator bonuses shouldn’t be confused with Acca Insurance. Instead of refunding customers when their Acca loses, accumulator bonuses actually reward customers for winning Accas. Of course, you will still receive all of your winnings but also get a bonus on top.
Bookmakers such as Betiton, Vbet, Novibet, Mansionbet, BetRegal and Bet365 all have accumulator bonuses available with the bonus amount and criteria for qualifying for the bonus varying between bookie.
We’ll use the Bet365 Acca Bonus as an example. With this promotion, you will be awarded a bonus if you win an accumulator with 3 or more selections. The bonus amount will be based on your winnings and increases with the more winning selections in your Acca.
For example, if you win an accumulator with 3 selections, you will receive a 5% bonus, you will receive 10% extra on winning four-folds, 12% extra on winning five-folds and so on. All the way up to a maximum of 70% extra winnings if you land a winning acca with 14 or more selections.
As mentioned earlier, one of the benefits of having accounts with multiple bookmakers is being able to claim the various promotions that they make available to existing customers. Some bookies have more promotions available than others and some promotions have a lot more value than others but there are a lot of them about that are available on various sports and events.
Some of the most common promotions that are available with several of the top bookies include:
Enhanced Odds can be available as part of a sign up offer but also available to existing customers. They can go under different names depending on the bookie offering them with the most common aliases being price boosts, bet boosts, enhanced prices and boosted odds.
Some bookmakers allow customers to boost the odds of bets of their choice whereas others apply enhanced odds to specific bets. Bookmakers such as SkyBet and William Hill are very popular for enhanced odds and regularly offer double odds on selected bets which have a lot of value.
Money Back if 2nd is a common offer that applies to horse racing. This promotion is available regularly at bookmakers such as Betfred, Paddy Power and William Hill on selected horse races. You simply need to back a horse to win in an eligible race and if your selection finishes 2nd, you’ll receive your stake back either as a free bet or as cash.
Money Back if 2nd to SP Favourite is a similar offer where you’ll receive your stake back if your horse finishes 2nd except that they must finish 2nd to the starting price favourite in order for the refund to be triggered.
Another common racing offer is Extra Places which apply to each way bets. Usually, the place part of your each way bet wins when your horse finishes in one of the place spots set by the industry-standard terms. However, bookmakers regularly pay out on extra places and these are usually available on selected races and meetings with bookies such as Paddy Power, Betfred, William Hill and others. An updated daily list of extra places is available here.
If you place accumulator bets then it’s a good idea to do so with a bookie offering Acca Insurance. Terms vary between bookies but you generally receive your stake back as a free bet if just one selection loses in your Acca. Acca Insurance usually applies to football accumulators but some bookmakers allow selections from other sports also.
