The Betfred top tournament goalscorer offer is always fulfilled in £5 free bet tokens. Punters receive one £5
free bet token for each game in which their chosen player scores a goal. A player who represents the side which ultimately wins the World Cup and plays every game, will make seven appearances in the tournament.

Are Winnings Paid in Cash?

The initial free bets provided by the promotion are obviously not paid in cash, they come in the form of £5 free bet tokens. If winnings result from the use of those tokens, however, they will be paid in real, withdrawable cash but will not include the return of the initial stake.

What Happens if My Selection Does Win the Golden Boot?

This is the ideal scenario. If the player you bet on does go on to win the golden boot, your bet will pay out just like any other successful wager but you will also receive a £5 free bet for each game which the player scores in on top.
