Or you can choose your free bets by country, US, Australia and Asia.
The bookmakers bonuses that are available to new punters when they register and account with their chosen site come in many different guises.
We have listed the most common types of free bets you will encounter when surfing the net. Below we have a brief summary of each type of bet.
Choose which bet type is most appropriate to your betting style and claim your bonus.
The amount of available free bet is straightforward enough. Simply choose how much you would like to have as a bonus.
The points to note are that the biggest bonuses i.e £200 will require you to match the same amount as a deposit.
So it would depend on your initial outlay amount as to whether or not you feel comfortable with committing a larger sum of cash to bet with.
You could start with the free £10 bonuses and progress from there to the bigger amounts.
Mobile betting has levelled with and is poised to surpass desktop wagering. As such online bookmakers generally tailor their bonuses accordingly.
The welcome offers for mobile bettors tend to be different amounts to desktop users.
They can in some cases be lower so here's the deal – have a look at both and choose the biggest and then, if you have to open your account via desktop. You will ensure a bigger bonus this way and of course it makes no difference if you then use the bonus money to bet on your mobile/tablet.
Risk free bets or no lose bets are basically an insurance on your first wager.
Take the risk free bonus offer as an example.
A bookmaker offers a 50% bonus return on your first bet if it loses up to £50.
This means if your first ever bet with the bookie was £100 and it lost you would get 50% of the amount returned which is £50.
Points to note here are that you would still have to risk £50 of your own money so the term “risk free” is stretching the truth somewhat.
However this bonus type still offers a fairly attractive way to benefit from a wager.
If you are searching for a bookmaker bonus code then this link is the one you want.
If you have made up your mind about which bookmaker you want to join and just want to find the appropriate promo code visit this page.
A point to note is that many online bookmakers do not require you to enter a promotional code to claim the bonus.
Some bookmakers will display the bonus code on the online registration page.
You can claim your deposit bonus by entering the unique bonus code in the members section of your account.
A lot of free bets or deposit bonuses are triggered by your first bet or deposit amount and don't require a code to be entered.
We generate a lot of interest on this site for the Lucky 15 bonuses and which bookmakers pay out the biggest ones. Why? – because the Lucky 15 bet is one of the most popular bets for punters. It's also one of my personal favourites along with doubles and trebles.
The Lucky 15 bonus is, in my opinion, a great insurance in that not only does it pay a premium amount on top of any 4 winners but compensates you for only 1 winner.
The 1 winner bonus is the part I really like because it happens to me a lot of the time.
Now when you think of only having a single winner from your four picks you might think you'd be losing a few quid.
However with the Lucky 15 bonus, and this applies to the Lucky 31 and 64's as well, you will be compensated with up to x 3 (treble) the odds if you have only one winner.
This type of bonus is more effective on Lucky 15's as there is less of an initial outlay due to backing fewer selections when compared to 31 and 64 bets.
Betfred lead the way with their stand out x 3 odds.
All the other bookmakers offer x 2 so definitely go with Betfred if you bet on Lucky 15's a lot.
You can make money with only one winner with this type of bonus providing the average odds of your picks are big enough.
Choose odds of 3/1 or more and you won't be out of pocket. You can read more on our comparison of Lucky bet bonuses on this page.
All online bookmakers restrict their free bet offers by country.
Some bookmaker sites restrict more countries than others.
Either way you may find yourself attempting to open a betting account only to be automatically refused if you come from a barred geographical area.
Players from the USA are most likely to be affected by this scenario. However American bettors can still open a sportsbook account and place bets by utilising the offshore status of sites. Think Panama, Costa Rica or Curacao as offshore countries that license and regulate online sportsbooks that accept US players.
Other major betting countries include Asia, Malaysia and Australia and as such have their own well known reputable online bookmakers.
We have only listed the biggest brands for these countries.
In the Asian betting market there are more plentiful options with well know brands like 10bet.com, 12bet.com and TLCbet to name but a few.
Many of the Asian betting sites have moved into the UK market and are licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission.
