I’ve been on numerous gaming websites over the years that tell you they can make you hundreds of pounds using bookmakers free bets etc, and I have no doubt that they do so. There is though, one method of getting our hands on free money that I’ve never seen on any of these gaming websites before, and that method is by using Cash Back Sites.
Cash Back Sites are something I have only stumbled across over the past 18 months or so, but by the looks of things people have been cashing in on their offers for a few years now.
Basically these sites give you money just for opening bookmakers accounts and meeting certain qualifying criteria. This criteria is easily obtained, it is generally depositing a modest amount (say £20-£40) and gambling it once – and for doing this, the Cash Back Sites will reward you with payments of between £10 and £20, it couldn’t be easier.
The two sites I have used over the past few months is Top Cash Back and Quidco. In general both of these sites use the same bookmakers with similar cash back amounts, with the exception of the odd different bookie and amount of cash back here or there.
Top Cash Back is my preference of the two, mainly because I find the site more easy to navigate, and because it is free to join. Quidco costs £5, but you don’t pay that until you start earning cash backs, so in theory it doesn’t actually cost you any hard earned cash.
There is though a real jewel in the crown with using Cash Backs Sites – and that is because in the case of some bookmakers you can claim these cash back offers and also claim the bookmaker’s free bets – it’s a win win situation.
At the moment with Top Cash Back you can get a £20 cash back for joining Ladbrokes, along with a £50 free bet. You can also get a £20 cash back for joining Coral, along with a £30 free bet. It really is money for old rope.
In the case of Ladbrokes you need to deposit and gamble £20 to qualify for the cash back – you would be staking £50 anyway to qualify for the maximum free bet amount. In the case of Coral, you need to stake £25 to qualify for the cash back, but again, you would be staking £30 for the maximum free bet.
So as you can see, you will qualify for the cash backs if you stake the amount needed to claim the maximum available on the free bets.
With Top Cash Back you can currently get the following cash backs for opening accounts with Ladbrokes – £20.20 (as well as £50 free bet), Coral – £20.20 (as well as £30 free bet), Paddy Power – £20.20, Betfair – £15.15, Boylesports – £10.10 and 32Red Bet – £15.15. There is £100 in cash backs, without the free bets.
Quidco currently offers cash backs with Ladbrokes – £20.00 (as well as £50 free bet), Coral – £20 (as well as £30 free bet), Paddy Power – £20, Betfair – £10, William Hill – £12, 32Red Bet – £15 and Racing UK – £20.
Another trick to use here is patience. I’ve noticed that offers with some bookmakers have come and gone – with regard to free bets and cash backs. Rather than going crashing in and just signing up to anything and everything, why not just wait and see if a bookmaker decides to stick it’s head above the parapet with a knock out offer?
At the moment the Ladbrokes and Coral’s offers are a must. Can’t see them being bettered any time soon.
Don’t worry if you already have an account with the bookies in question. In the case of Ladbrokes, I already had an account with them – but my Missus didn’t, so she opened one and claimed the free bet.
For anyone interested in taking advantage of these offers please feel free to get in touch if any further information or help is required.
