William Hill continues to heavily promote a £100 free matched bet offer that puts it on a collision course with rival Bet365. It is bidding to capture a greater share of the online market after its retail business was hit by the UK government’s decision to cap the maximum stake on virtual roulette machines at £2. It still runs a bet £10 get £30 in free bets offer, similar to the promotions offered by rivals like 888 Sport, Betway and Betfred, but it is also going head-to-head with Bet365 by mirroring the Stoke-based firm’s flagship £100 matched deposit offer in a bid to attract punters with larger deposits.

We are now approaching a busy period in the horse racing calendar as the National Hunt season starts to really ramp up in November and December. There are big meetings over Christmas to look forward to, and across the world you will find major events like the Hong Kong International Races. Unibet has a promotion whereby it will give you £40 in free bets and a £10 casino bonus if you place a £10 bet on racing at odds of evens (2.00) or greater. That amounts to a 500% welcome bonus, which is generous by industry standards.

England take on Kosovo in their final Euro 2020 qualifier on Sunday afternoon. Gareth Southgate’s men have already booked a place at the big tournament next summer, but a win in this match would ensure they qualify as top seeds and theoretically secure an easier draw in the group stage. Southgate is likely to field a strong team, and we should be in for an entertaining game, as it finished 5-3 to England when the teams met at Wembley earlier this year. Kosovo have scored in every game so far in qualifying, while England just beat Montenegro 7-0. Paddy Power will give you £40 in free bets on Monday’s Euro 2020 matches if you deposit £10 into a new account and wager it on the Kosovo v England game. The minimum odds for your qualifying bet are 1/5, so that covers an England win or both teams to score. You will then receive a £5 free bet on all eight Euro 2020 qualifiers taking place on Monday.

If you place five accumulators for £5 each at Boyle Sports, it will give you a free bet. This is an ongoing offer rather than a promotion restricted to new customers. In order to qualify, your acca must have at least five legs and the combined odds must be at least 3/1 (4.00). The offer is available for any sport, pre-match or live, and football is likely to prove the most popular choice. Club football resumes this weekend after a two-week international break, and there is plenty of scope for compiling interesting accumulators. If one leg in your acca lets you down, Boyle Sports will give you a refund, provided the minimum odds for each selection are 1/2 (1.50). It will give you up to £25 in free bets as part of a slightly complex welcome offer if you are new to the site.
