Free bets for existing customers are common place these days with offers galore, mainly on horse racing betting, and football betting. These free bets come in various forms.
On horse racing, you can get free bets if you back a winner over 4/1 on a live TV race, or you can get money back if your football accumulator misses by one.
Free Bets For Existing Customers
Paddy Power – If one leg of your win/draw/win accumulator bet lets you down, Paddy Power will give you a free bet up to a maximum of £10.
Betfair – 3/1 Horse Racing Offer. Get a risk free bet of £25 if you back a winning horse on the betfair sportsbook at odds of 3/1 or greater, on any TV race.
On the betfair exchange there are regular £5 free bets available if you have £10 on a selected event. It might be have a tenner on a selected Champions League match on Wednesday, and get yourself a £5 free bet to use on a football accumulator at the weekend.

Ladbrokes – Place a 5-fold acca and get money back as a free bet if one leg lets you down. Free bet refund is a maximum of £10. Again, it’s in the win/draw/win market, and minimum accumulator odds must be 3/1. You also can’t include a match with odds shorter than 1/10 in it.
bet365 – 4/1 Horse Racing Offer. Get a risk free bet up to a maximum of £50.00 if you back a winner at odds of 4/1 or greater on any live TV race (ITV only). On days with no TV racing, there are featured races to use this offer on instead.
From time to time bet365 also offer a free bet up to a maximum of £50.00 on a live TV match. To get this offer, you need to place a pre match bet on the game. You can then have a bet for the same amount during the match, and if it loses, get your money back in cash.
Why Are Free Bets For Existing Customers So Rife?
With the online betting boom that has taken place over the past few years, us punters now find ourselves in a relatively privileged position. Bookmakers can no longer take our custom for granted, as there is just so much competition out there. If our bookmaker isn’t offering us a good deal, then we have the option to go somewhere else.
So for example, if your bookmaker isn’t offering you regular free bets on the horse racing and football. Then you can just switch to one that is. It’s that easy, and there is loads of bookmakers out there gagging for our business.
While there is this sort of competition in the marketplace, the offers will keep on coming. And now that the offers are there, the bookmakers keep on having to push themselves to make their offers more competitive, and better than their rivals.
This is even better for us, as it gives us far better variation and choice. If one bookmaker is offering a free £20.00 bet on a football match, then another one might offer a £25.00 free bet to beat it. And so on. These offers are here to stay for the foreseeable future, and don’t we just love it.
