£100 in free bets released in £20 chunks every time you place 5 bets of £10 or more at 1.50.

How to get it:

Open a brand new account with Betfair and then place 5 single sportsbook bets worth at least £10 at odds of 1/5 (1.20) or longer within 30 days. Your account will then be credited with £20 in free bets. You can then repeat this process four more times to release a total of £100.

Once your free bets have been credited, you can use them by ticking the relevant box which will appear on your bet slip when making a bet. Free bets are valid for any sportsbook (fixed odds) market at odds of at least 1/5 (1.20) and will remain available for up to 30 days.

How to withdraw it:

The free bets themselves cannot be withdrawn but if you achieve any winnings from the use of those free bets, they can be withdrawn as normal. Any winnings which may result from the free bets will not include the stake amount.

Our Rating for:

Only narrowly missing out on getting a perfect rating by half a star, we reckon that Betfair’s £100 free bet bundle new customer offer is one of the very best around.

There are, however, a number of punters for whom the promotion will not be suitable and it is for that reason that we’ve given it 4.5 rather than a full five stars…

When it comes to its maximum overall benefit value of £100, the Betfair free bet is unquestionably one of the most generous new customer offers around and that makes it a superb option for keen and regular punters. It is the way in which the £100 must be triggered, however, which means that we haven’t given the promotion full marks.

The £100 in free bets, after all, must be triggered in five increments, each worth £20 and each of those £20 free bets requires five qualifying bets worth £10 each to be placed. In order to receive the full £100 free bet benefit, therefore, a punter must bet a total of £250 in a comparatively short period of time which may be beyond the compass of many casual gamblers.

    I’ve done the whole Betfair bonus so can confirm they’ll pay the full £100 in free bets if you meet the betting requirements. I’d be happy to recommend this offer for anyone who places a decent number of bets but if you’re only joining to place one or two you’re going to struggle.

    Obviously if you want to trade sports, instead of just betting with a bookmakers, then you’re going to want a Betfair account and may as well have the bonus offer that’s available.

    Will try to leave a more detailed review of the company on the whole on your review page but just wanted leave a quick note on the bonus here as I did it last month.

    I’m still on doing this one but so far so good on the free bets front. Could be easier to release but I like the fact you can earn more than other bookies if you stay loyal.

    It says its a £100 bonus but you don’t get it all at once. You need to place loads of bets to get the full £100. Make sure you read the terms and conditons before getting involved.
