The BetFair Welcome Offer

The BetFair free bet is the bet that keeps on giving. First, when you bet £10 for the first time on the site you are given £30 in free bets in return. Then, you are given £10 to use on the Betfair exchange, where you bet against other punters. When you join the Betfair Exchange and bet with your own money, you also get a £20 free bet for use on the exchange. So, if we were being fair, we would say you end up with £60 of free bets, eventually.

Our judgement on the BetFair Free Bet in brief

We always love a gift that keeps on giving and we love that these are BetFair free bets and not refunds on losing bets. You really do get something to play with on the BetFair site and without much commitment on your part.

How to claim your BetFair Free Bet

Claiming your BetFair free bet is as easy as you would hope for. If you are a new customer, you can easily sign up by registering your details and depositing and then betting £10.
Here is the step by step guide to how to claim your free bet, just to make it clear:

  1. Using your favourite search engine search for BetFair Free Bet, this will ensure you get the latest offer from the site.
  2. Join the site. You will need to register your mobile phone number and your email address for increased security on the site. This is a good thing! But if you have registered any of these details before then you will be exempt from the welcome bonus and you will just be encouraged to sign in.
  3. You will be expected to come up with a username and password before you can deposit money to the account.
  4. You will then need to place a £10 bet and have this settled before the free bet is attached. You will see this arrive in your “My bonuses” tab of the website. This is a good sign that you can begin to expect some regular BetFair betting offers 2018 from the site. You will also receive a £10 credit to use on the BetFair exchange.

BetFair Free Bet Terms and Conditions

As always, there are some terms and conditions attached to all the BetFair betting offers 2018. Here are the main Ts and Cs for the BetFair Free Bet that welcomes you to the site. As with other sites, this welcome offer is only available to new customers and those based in the UK or the Republic of Ireland. The site continually refers to what you will “Win” in the terms and conditions. Remember that you do not actually get the money, you just get a token that allows you to place a bet of that amount. You will not have this returned to you as a stake if you win, therefore technically you haven’t yet won any money.

If you make a qualifying bet, so a bet of 1/2 or more, then your free bet will automatically be applied. Unlike most other sites you can bet a portion of your free bet and save the rest for later, as long as later is within the 30-day validity period.

You can only access the free bet if you deposit using your credit or debit card. Any deposits using eWallets such as PayPal and Skrill are exempt from the promotion.

The other BetFair Betting Offers 2018

BetFair is a big site and they work hard to organise BetFair betting offers 2018. There are literally so many offers that we cannot cover them all here, so we will give you a taste of the ways you can benefit when using the site.

ITV Racing Free Bet

BetFair is the partner site with ITV racing and any winner over 3/1 shown live on ITV races could qualify you for a £25 free bet. This stays valid for 48 hours and needs to be place on fixed odds bets. As soon as you make your first qualifying bet then the free bet will qualify.

ACCA Boost

The ACCA is always a popular bet on any site. Here they ask you to select the five winners and if you are successful in your first week then they will give you a 50% boost to your winnings.

Best Odds on the Premiership

Although not a set promotion, this still counts in the BetFair betting offers 2018. This is mostly because they have proven over a season that they provide the best markets for Premiership football and this is probably one of the most important offers a site could provide.

Risk Free Bet

If you have only ever tried the sportsbook and not dared to go near the exchange, then BetFair make it easy for you to try the bet out by providing the funds for the experience. It is always difficult to opt into something new but at least this takes some of the sting off the strangeness.

All in all, this array of BetFair betting offers 2018 is impressive and adds to the sites reputation for trying to make the experience fair for the punter.

Our overall judgement of BetFair Betting Offers 2018

We are impressed by BetFair. You get a decent first free bet and then an option to try out the exchange with an additional sum of money. The inclusion of a bonus tab makes it clear that they regularly give away free bets and so make the betting experience more profitable for the punter. It is well worth giving the site a try – if only because of the quality and quantity of the markets on offer.
