Ladbrokes and Coral are both promoting offers whereby you get £20 in free bets if you deposit £20 into a new account. Both sites are owned by GVC and it has endured a tumultuous couple of months. Its share price tumbled off a cliff when chief executive Kenny Alexander decided to sell a number of shares in the business. It is also facing up to revenue declines as a result of the UK government’s decision to reduce the maximum stake on FOBTs from £100 to £2, so it needs to push more and more into the online arena to make up the shortfall. But recent news coming out of the group has been positive, the share price is recovering and it is bidding to maintain the momentum with these offers, which are designed to attract new customers. If you deposit £5 and wager it at minimum odds of 1/2 (1.50), you will get four free £5 bets to play with. Any winnings you incur take the form of free bets and if you are successful you can eventually withdraw cash.
William Hill lost its title as the UK’s leading high street bookmaker when rivals Ladbrokes and Coral merged. It has been battered by headwinds and its share price has decreased by almost 60% over the past year. It also needs to seriously ramp up its online offering, and it is making good progress in the US, but it needs to boost its European presence. To that end, it recently acquired Mr Green and restructured a number of divisions as a result. In a bid to attract more sports fans to the site, it is giving away £30 in free bets to anyone that deposits £10 into a new account. Similar terms apply: the £10 must go on a market where the odds are 1/2 (1.50) or greater, and then you will be credited with three free £10 bets.
888 Sport will give you £30 in free bets from a £10 deposit, and you also need to wager the £10 at odds of 1/2 (1.50) or greater on this offer. Bet Victor will give you £30 in free bets for just a £5 initial deposit of your own cash, but conditions are attached. Firstly, you must wager the £5 on a market where the odds are even money (2.0) or greater, which is obviously a more difficult task. You will then receive two free £10 sports bets and a free £10 casino bonus. You have to turn that casino bonus over 40 times before you can withdraw any cash. Betfred will give you £30 in free bets and 30 free spins on casino slots if you deposit £10 into a new account, but you have to wager the £10 at evens (2.0) there too.
Bet 365 continues to promote its industry leading matched deposit offer of up to £100. Deposit anything from £5 to £100 into a new account and the bookmaker will match it, so if you deposit £100 you will be credited with £200 to play with. The minimum odds to release the free bet credits are just 1/5 (1.20) and you have 30 days in which to claim them. Betfair is now offering a 100% matched deposit offer that goes up to £50 and the minimum odds there are 1/5 (1.20) too.
