No Deposit Free Bets
Let’s cut to the chase – not many bookmakers offer this kind of bet because it means they cough up cash before you do. Ever seen a bookie on a racecourse doing that?
“Oi, mate, here’s a fiver, what you backing?”
It’s a risk. Of course, the bookmaker is hoping that you’ll enjoy yourself SO MUCH that you’ll say “Thanks for the fiver. I had fun. Here’s £20 of my own money as I’d like to do it again.”
That’s what no deposit free bets are all about – the bookie gives you a taster of betting on their website, and you can take it or leave it. Now, we’re not into excessive gambling, and we’re not into spending loads at the bookies, but what we do like is a bookmaker that thinks ahead.
We suggest that if you like them, you deposit some money yourself and keep on playing. There are plenty of good reasons to do so…
SkyBet, for example, are offering money off your Sky bills – if you’re a Sky customer. If not, there are loads of cashback offers every week through their website, and they have special racing offers where they’ll pay out for the top four or five.
Totesport do the same – paying out for the top four or five, with cashback offers on top every week. You need to sign up for their e-mails to take advantage, as they are frequent.
Sportsbook free bets don’t often come along like this. Yes, you can sign up for casino and bingo offers like this (and we’ll be sifting through them ourselves to get you some good ones), but for the time being, you’ve got two… That’s £15 to bet with.
Some rules – you can’t sign up and just withdraw the money to your account. That’s naughty. You’ll make the bookmaker sad.
