What are free bets?
Free bet bonus or just free bet is one of the most popular (right after the welcome bonus) promotions offered by bookmakers. Its main purpose is to lure more clients, and there is nothing wrong with it.
It is always nice to get free bets and place bets without any concerns on whatever event we are interested in. What do we have to do to get a free bet on your account? Usually not a lot, all the details can be found in Terms & Conditions for the particular promotion on the bookmaker’s website.
Sometimes it is enough to make a certain deposit, other times placing a bet with a set stake and min. odds will be a requirement. In some cases, we would have to lose a bet in order to get this “consolation prize”.
Free bets advantages
Additional resources to play with is very self-explanatory. Every free bet bonus increases our bankroll we can use for further betting. Tipsters, without exception, love anything related to free bets, and bookmakers from their side are well aware of such a thing and like to utilize it to gain an edge over the competitors. That is why there’re so many promotions organized by various online bookmakers. We must distinguish two types of free bets here: one which we get after creating an account and the other one, more frequent, usually dedicated to different events.
Free bets are very common practice, it is regularly used by bookmaking companies. Of course, we are not getting crazy amounts, but even those, that we get are very welcomed & satisfactory, allowing us to bet on something we would never do with our own money.
No own money-losing risk. Using free bets gives us the safety of not losing our own money even in the case of unsuccessful betting. Free bet is something like a voucher - you can only use it for betting.
Possibility of big winnings. Some bettors, knowing that they are not risking any of their money, create the never-ending acca slips, which they would never even consider taking money out of their own pockets. We cannot say that we approve such a strategy, but once in a while, such a slip makes it and brings its owner a huge return.
