Ever since bookmakers have gone online, they have been offering new customers free bets or sign up offers. This is their main way of attracting punters to either switch from one bookmaker to another or have several active accounts.

I’ve pretty much taken advantage of every free bet, bonus or sign up offer available to me. Why not? Once you’ve claimed a sign up bonus their is no obligation for you to keep placing bets with that bookmaker.

How do Sign Up Offers Work?

Free bets and sign offers vary from one bookmaker to the next. It’s always important that you read the terms and conditions before opening a new account. The term “Free Bet” isn’t used as often these days it was deemed by the gambling commission to be misleading punters. After all, in nearly every instance, you are not getting anything free.

Bookmakers will generally insist, that not only you deposit funds into your account, but also that you place bets before they credit you with the sign up offer. This where bonuses tend to differ.

Wagering Requirements

This refers to how much of your own money you have to bet before you can claim the bonus. Some bookmakers will make you bet your deposit once, others will insist that before any funds can be withdrawn from your account, you must have wagered your deposit and bonus 5 or even 10 times over.

Other stipulations may include the time frame you have to meet these wagering requirements. Some bookies may only give you 7 days. Only certain bets will count. So some offers require you to place bets at odds of Evens (2.0) or more, for the stake to count towards the bonus.

Size of the Bonus

The bigger bonuses are not always the best. Generally the higher the sign up offer is, the more you money you will have to bet to claim it. This could lead to you losing more than you would have, if you had just signed up to the bookmaker normally.

All these factors are worth considering. Hopefully our sign up offers guide can help you choose the best free bet for you. And remember. There is no limit on how many bookmaker sign up offers you can claim.
