The SkyBet Welcome Offer

The SkyBet free bet when you first join the site is quite modest. In exchange for your first £5 bet, you will receive £20 in two x £10 free bets.

This means that you get a greater variety of betting markets available, and of a better quality than most others.

The other SkyBet Betting Offers 2018

Before we get started with any other SkyBet betting offers 2018 we have to mention the big one. SkyBet offer a £5 free bet every week you are loyal to the company. You act like a loyal customer by opting in to the SkyBet Club and placing £25 on odds that are even money or greater during a seven-day period.

Price Boost

It is worth visiting the site time and again because SkyBet frequently offer price boosts that will make your betting experience more exciting.

Money Back Specials

As with the price boosts, every so often SkyBet will offer money back on losing bets. This is usually on the big events where they have a lot of competition – but it is still a nod to their loyal customers.

Best Odds Guaranteed on Horse Racing

This pretty much does what it says on the tin. The SkyBet betting offers 2018 are at their best when they are an obvious and straight up attempt to be generous with the customer. Free bets and bet refunds don’t really cost the site anything and make great headlines. However, guaranteeing the best odds amongst competitors means that they are offering you the best deal – it is a genuine win for the punter.

Additional place in each-way bets on golf

Betting on golf, with an EW bet, allows you the option to win on the top golfers. When this promotion runs you get an additional place, so you increase your chance of winning massively.


Probably the best SkyBet betting offer 2018 – and indeed the best bet anywhere on the internet – is the Super6 Acca. Accumulator bets are increasingly popular and usually require you to place a single stake on a number of teams winning to your prediction. SkyBet offer you a Super6 bet free each week with a chance of winning £50,000, or a share of this pot, if all six scores you predicted are accurate. This is by far the best promotion on the internet and is a genuine free bet every week. You can even follow the fortune of pundits on Sky Sport News, who also predict the scores.

Our overall judgement of SkyBet Betting Offers 2018

The welcome offer SkyBet free bet is nothing to write home about. It is disappointing. However, the other SkyBet betting offers 2018 are the best on the internet and fitting for one of the biggest names in media and entertainment.
