How to Claim your Betfair Free Bets?
Betfair Free Bets which are for new customers are very simple to claim.
Firstly, when opening your account with Betfair Sportsbook, use the Betfair free bet code ZSK200. Then simply place your first bet (for £10 or more) as a ‘single’ on Betfair Sportsbook, at odds of 1/5 (1.2 in decimal terminology) or greater.
Within 24 hours of that bet being settled you will receive three Betfair free bets worth £10 apiece.
To be eligible for those three £10 Betfair free bets your initial bet must be placed within 30 days of opening your account. Apart from that there are no apparent pitfalls to Betfair Sportsbook free bet offer.
However, Betfair free bet terms and conditions do state if you stake less than £10 with any of your Betfair free bets, the remainder will not be useable. And, being a Betfair free bet, stakes are not returned along with any winnings.
More offers and promotions
Betfair’s Acca Edge is an ‘accumulator insurance’ which returns cash, not a Betfair free bet, to punters who have just one leg let them down in any accumulative bet featuring three or more selections.
Acca Edge is available on all sports including ‘in-play’ and unlike similar promotions with other betting firms you do not need five selections in your accumulator.
A novel Betfair bonus, Acca Edge is not so much a promotion as an added function. It is unique and works as a fantastic insurance-style safety net. To take up the option simply look for Betfair’s ‘Edge’ logo in your betting slip.
If it is price boosts that float your proverbial boat Betfair Sportsbook always have a buffet on offer. Amongst those is the Betfair Double Odds First Goal Scorer promotion.
This Betfair offer will double your odds if your winning first goalscorer bet is scored by a header. The winnings from the doubled odds will be credited to your account as ‘Free Bets’ (the maximum qualifying stake is £25).
And for those that like a bit of money back there is the popular Betfair promotion, Money Back If He Bottles It. Put simply, if your player has a dart to win his match but goes on to lose, Betfair will refund your losing stake on that darts match up to a maximum of £25 (the offer applies to ‘correct score’ and ‘match winner’ bets only).
Betfair mobile betting
One of the biggest advantages of betting with Betfair Sportsbook is it’s integration with its established betting exchange which means Betfair cash-out facility is the best in the business. Betfair Cash Out allows you to lock in a profit or loss before waiting for the event to finish. Betfair do the maths to offer you a return in the real time of your currently running bets, it is based on the live market prices.
As Betfair Cash Out is so simple and accessible to customers on their mobile devices, it is a massive incentive to wager with Betfair sports. Using a single click you can cash out of all bets placed on a single market. Naturally the Betfair app is readily available from all the usual places (all quality stores) and what an invaluable tool it is.
In addition to Cash Out Betfair Sports have also developed Price Rush which, to quote “provides Betfair Sportsbook customers the chance to get better odds than they bargained for on their singles bets, thanks to the power of their adjoining exchange.”
That’s because at bet placement with Betfair Sports the firm automatically checks the prices offered by the thousands of customers on the Betfair Exchange. If there is a better price available in that particular exchange market, they will transfer the Sportsbook stake to match those higher odds being offered on the Exchange. So if the customer gets a Price Rush, they benefit from better odds than they were expecting.
Just like Betfair Cash Out, Price Rush is available to all Betfair mobile and PC customers.
Betfair began life in 2000 as a cutting-edge ‘exchange betting’ site. It remained this way, untouched for 12 years, before adding a traditional bookmaking arm to its operation in 2012.
Nowadays Betfair is an evolving beautiful beast. Integrating their exchange and sportsbook offering has resulted in Betfair offering some great initiatives and appreciably better prices than its online rivals.
Both the Betfair mobile app and website are striking, easy-to-use and offer a plethora of betting markets.
In addition to Betfair offering unbeatable value and unrivalled cash-out facilities they also give their customers all the usual bells & whistles such as Best Odds Guaranteed which is standard on all Betfair horse racing and greyhound racing.
Betfair offers Double Result on horse racing too, meaning if your horse loses a race in the steward’s room you will still get paid.
For Betfair football and Betfair horse racing punters the Betfair app should be an essential icon on your mobile app. You can open a new account via it, as well as online. Do not forget to claim your Betfair free bets using the Betfair free bet code ZSK200 during registration.
Of course Betfair Sportsbook is the headline act of a festival which boasts several talented performers: Betfair Casino, Betfair Exchange Games, Betfair Poker to name but a few.
