Free Bets on the Grand National must be catching, as Betfair are also breaking with the general tradition (of no free bets in Grand National week) and are offering a free bet to new customers who open a Betfair account this week.
The Betfair free bet is Bet £20.00, Get £20.00, so this is obviously less than the £50.00 you can get the rest of the year round.
You will be directed to the Sportsbook section of the Betfair site to claim your free bet, but if it’s an exchange account you’re after, then don’t worry as the login serves both the Sportsbook and Betting Exchange accounts. This means you can open a Sportsbook account, get the free bet, and then use the Sportsbook and the Exchange there after.
As well as the Free Bet, Betfair are also running a brilliant Aintree Promotion for all new customers.
If you open a Betfair account between 12:00pm on 31st March 2014 and 4:00pm on 4th April 2014 using promo code ZSK130, you will be entitled to a refund on your first bet on every race of the Aintree Festival if your horse loses and the SP favourite (or joint favourite) wins that race.
Each refund is up up to a maximum of £/€25.00, and will be refunded in the form of a free bet (token). This offer only applies to bets placed on their Sportsbook (fixed odds), not their Betting Exchange. All bets need to be placed pre race, in-running bets won’t count.
