How to use your £100 of Betfair Free Bets for New Customers

So with the Betfair free bet explained fully, you’re now a new customer who has registered quoting promo code ZBBC01, deposited using the valid payment methods and have placed your first 5 x £/€10 qualifying bets with Betfair Sportsbook. Once settled, you’ll now receive your first batch of the advertised £20 or €20 free bets with which you can place with Betfair Sportsbook as a reward for becoming a new customer. Remember that the process can be used 5 times across the opening 30 days of your Sportsbook account, generating up to £/€100 of free bets. Thanks to Betfair, you now have a generous 30 days to use your free bet balance which you tap-in to from the Betfair Sportsbook betslip. After 30 days have lapsed the each individual free bet expires, so make sure you use them and diarise when they need to be used by.

Okay so how can you use each £/€20 free bet which can add-up to £/€100 of free bets that Betfair Sportsbook reward you with? First point to recognise is that Betfair genuinely give you a flexible £/€20 free bet balance, which can be used in a multitude of ways. There’s no minimum stake from the free bet balance so in essence you could place 40 x 50p stake bets. Alternatively you could use the full £/€20 free bet balance on a single bet. The balance can be redeemed on win only and each-way bets, whilst multiples are not supported. To use your free bets, add a selection to your betslip. Free bets can only be used on selections with odds of 1/5 (1.2) or greater. It’s also important to note that you cannot take the Betfair Sportsbook free bet balance and try to use it on another Betfair digital product. This includes Betfair Exchange, so Sportsbook free bets can only be used within the Sportsbook product.

In essence though it’s a very flexible scenario when it comes to the type of bets that are supported by the Betfair free bet balance. Naturally the strategy you use to attempt to maximise the income from each £/€20 balance is up to yourself, but it’s well worth pointing out that all returns that you do generate from the free bets are fully withdrawable. Profits from free bet balance staked bets are withdrawable across the 30 days the balance can be used, but the free bet balance itself is non-withdrawable. Any balance not used within 30 days will be removed.

It’s also imperative to realise that free bet stakes and are not included in any returns that generate from them. That is industry standard, as is the fact that free bet tokens are non-refundable. So in this circumstance with this Betfair Sportsbook up to £/€100 of free bets promotion, the maximum £/€100 of free bets is non-withdrawable.

Bets placed with a free bet will not qualify for any Betfair promotions.
