The UK Gambling industry is absolutely huge at the moment and there is over 50 different online bookies who want you to bet with them . To entice you to choose them over their competitions they almost all of them offer weekly promotions, and this is your chance to get some risk free cash.
I think it is completely inadvisable to pick one bookies and stick with them through thick and thin, first because they may have the best odds as an average but no bookies has the best odds on every event, all of the time, so use the websites that are out there which find you the best odds and then go with them.
Now, I don’t know about you but whenever I sign up to a website or company, and they ask that question at the bottom about whether you want to receive communication from this company, I check or uncheck whichever box I have to in order to not receive anything, with gambling however, this is a bad move.
I previously discussed welcome offers and in a similar fashion, many bookies offer great offers on a weekly basis for you to take advantage of. On top of the weekly offers that they give to the public, they will also pick a percentage of their customers and e-mail them individual offers, this is why you should always make sure that you’re signed up for communications from them. So what type of offers can you expect…
Very often the big bookies will offer free in-play bets on football if you place a bet pre-match, PaddyPower are notorious for their bet £20 pre game and get a free £10 to use in-play, sometime offering up to 3 per weekend. Another notable offer is bet365’s £50 pre game and £50 in-play bet, if you’re in-play bet loses then they will refund you the £50, you really can’t go wrong with these bets.
These exist on a public and personal basis and can be a great way to boost your winnings, they usually occur on double and treble markets and normal for big horse meets or big football games. The most popular seem to be Team 1, 2 and 3 all to win boosted from 4/1 to 7/1 and always contain the big favourites, these bets are always worth a couple of quid and can be very helpful in boosting your cash pot.
These are a great way of minimising risk when you place a bet, often on horse racing the bookies will offer money back if your horse finishes 2nd or 3rd, which means if you back a first or second favourite in a race with a small field then you can almost guarantee a win outright, or your money back. With football betting many companies offers such as money back on your bet if both teams score, or money back if player X scores, another great way of adding a sense of security to your bet.
Some great options out there for regular free bets, take example Sky Bet, join their Club and bet £25 each week for a free £5 bet every week, that’s over £250 every year. 888Sport offer you a chance of gaining more money by picking 3 Premier League teams and for every goal they score you’ll get with £2, £3 or £4 once you’ve placed a £20 pre match bet. A few bookies also offer cash builders for the Cheltenham Festival, for every £10 you place on a horse race they’ll give you £X to bet at Cheltenham, they offer this around 6 months before the festival so a great way of saving some free cash for the big one.
