There are plenty of online betting opportunities in football at the moment, with the Champions League in full swing, Premiership title race and not to mention a whole wealth of games in the Championship, Leagues One and Two and the Highland Leagues there is plenty to get the punter salivating, with not even a curry in sight..
Of course, we all like something for free and in the world of online betting nothing could be closer to the truth.
There is massive competition in the online world of bookmakers, the flat caps, dodgy plastic cups of coffee and the remnants of betting slips lying desolately around the bins are slowly becoming a thing of the past in betting shops up and down the breadth of Britain as a new breed of gambler emerges.
One that is armed with a mouse.
The bookmakers know that this dangerous new beast doesn’t really want to be venturing out on a Saturday morning to put a ten team accumulator on. And he doesn’t really want to be watching Saturday kitchen on the box.
Due to this and a plethora of many other reasons we don’t know about, bookmakers are queuing up to earn your custom, and there are plenty of attractive free bets offers left dangling like a carrot in front of potential customers.
So let’s begin and take a look at some very attractive free bet offers from some very well known high street bookmakers.
We kick off with Paddy Power, who very kindly offer a free £50 bet to all new customers. This is one free bet that simply must be taken up. Paddy is becoming very well known in the UK due to an increasing media presence, especially on Talk Sport, and it’s not hard to see why, Chris De Burgh aside, this popular Irishman is becoming of Ireland’s greatest exports.
Our free £50 bet is currently being spent on Real Madrid’s Christiano Ronaldo to win the Champions League golden boot at 14/1, which will bring in a handsome free bet return of £750. You can pick up your free bet from Paddy Power here.
Of course free bets can range from £10 to £200. Online betting giant Bet365 for example, have very handsome offer available to new customers.
Not only do Bet365 stream many live games from around Europe, offer some superb in running odds, aided by that betting guru Ray Winston during television ad breaks, but they also offer some comprehensive goalscorer match bets on the majority of UK football matches.
You can bet on first, anytime or last goalscorer in any match across the leagues, which is very handy for those football fans who know the ins and outs of their local side.
Of course with such an online presence, bet365 also offer a free bet that suits and new customers can pick up a free £200 bet to spend on any sport of their choice.
We are using our £200 free bet on Roy Keane’s Ipswich to win the Championship at 22/1, which will bring us a healthy return of £4600.
There are plenty of other free bets offers which we will get to later, and remember you can pick and choose which free bet to claim, so shop around!
With anything to do with online betting however, please make sure you read the terms and conditions laid out by the individual bookmakers, and of course only bet with what you can afford.
