To access your Betfair bonus, you will need to place 5x sportsbook bets at the minimum stake of £10 per bet and these bets must be on different markets. The odds of the trigger bets must be at least 1/5 (1.20), which is actually a lot less strict than many other bookmaker bonuses, on any market.

Your account will then be credited with the free a £20 free bet within 24 hours. These can only be redeemed against one bet each only, again at odds of 1/5 or longer.

Any winnings you make from your free bets are able to be withdrawn instantly, although your free bet stake will be deducted and is not available for withdrawal.

Other Betfair Bonuses

Various other promotions are available for Casino and Poker players alike. Below we list the most important ones, though you should make sure to check with Betfair’s promotions section regularly, as changes and updates are made often. All bonuses listed below apply to new players only, unless otherwise noted.

Casino Bonuses

Betfair CasinoThere’s a no deposit bonus and a welcome bonus of 100% up to £100 when you join Betfair and play in their casino for the first time:

30 Free Roulette Chips No Deposit

No deposit is required for new players to earn 30 free Roulette chips to use in Betfair’s casino, all you need to do is register an account. You’ll get 30 free chips for Roulette released over the course of 3 consecutive days.

All players that are new to Betfair Casino are eligible – even if you already use their sportsbook for betting, although players from outside of the UK and Ireland are exempt.

There is a 1x wagering requirement on any winnings from free chips which themselves, currently, can only be used for Roulette.

Deposit Bonus – 100% up to £100

As mentioned there is a bonus when you make your first deposit as well as the free Roulette chips available at the Betfair casino. Simply deposit a minimum of £10 and they will match it with a 100% bonus. The max bonus you can claim on this offer is £100 and the wagering requirements to clear are x45.

So if you decided you want to deposit £50 you’d get a £100 bonus applied to your account straight away. You would then need to wager your £100 bonus amount a total of x45 which would be £4,500.

HOWEVER some games count differently towards your requirements so be aware when playing – the percentages are listed in the table below.

Game Type Stake % Contribution To Wagering Requirements
Slots, Arcade, Scratchcard, Fixed Odds (excludes Lucky Wheel/Spin A Win) 100%
Roulette (excludes French & Zero) 25%

Poker Bonus

PokerNo online poker room would be complete without a first deposit bonus. At Betfair poker, you’ll be awarded a welcome package which includes a 200% deposit bonus up to €1000.

Note: Betfair poker works in euros so the bonus info listed below is done in that currency.

Basically when you make your first deposit at Betfair Poker they will match the amount with a 200% bonus up to a maximum of €1,000. So if you started out with a €100 deposit you would get a €200 bonus on top – however this bonus must be earned by playing and is not paid instantly.

To earn your bonus: you will need to rack up status points (SPs). For every 1,250 SPs you manage to earn you will release €10 of your bonus.

You have a total of 45 days from your first deposit to clear the bonus amount.

You will earn 25 status points for every €1 you pay in rake at either cash or tournament games. If you earn enough SPs in any given month you will be assigned a VIP level (Bronze, Silver or Gold). These levels entitle you to a multiplier on your status points as follows:

Status SPs To Earn Multiplier
Bronze 0 x3
Silver 1,250 x3
Gold 12,500 x5.25
