rulesAs I started to get into the world of online betting I realised that a lot of different websites assumed that you knew what they were talking about when it came to different bits of information about betting.

This assumed knowledge confused me at times and that’s part of the reason why I chose to set up this site in the first place – to help people beginning the same journey I’ve already been on.

Here, then, I’ll explain some of the things that I struggled to get my head around at the start of my betting life in the hope that it makes things easier for you. This won’t be comprehensive by any stretch of the imagination, but if I can aid you even a little bit with some of the bigger issues then it will have been worth it.

New Customer Free Bets and Bonuses

Free Bet Tokens Explained

Everyone likes something for free don’t they? That’s why I thought I should start with a bit of a breakdown of what free bets are and how bookies use the terminology to mean different things. Generally speaking a ‘free bet’ means a token with a certain value that the bookmaker adds to your account. It can only be used with them and you can’t withdraw it as cash or anything, it is simply there to give you a chance to bet on something for free.

Let’s say that an online bookie has promised you a £10 free bet if you deposit £10 with them. In that instance they might well give you two £5 free bet tokens that can be used to place a bet on their sportsbook, for example. These things differ with each bookie, though, so have a look at what they offer.

Sometimes they’ll put a restriction on the use of a free bet that says you can only use it on bets above odds of, say 1/2. You’ll also need to use each token in full, meaning that for a £5 freebie you have to place a single £5 bet rather than two £2.50 bets on different events.

It’s standard practice for bookmakers to put an expiration limit on their free bet tokens, so if you don’t use it within a set amount of time then it will simply vanish from your account.

There can be rollover requirements placed on winnings too, although this is rare its worth checking. If this is the case you’ll need to bet your free winnings so many times before you’ll be able to withdraw winnings.

Speaking of which, you rarely if ever get to withdraw the free bet stake with your winnings, so don’t include that when you’re counting your riches!

Welcome Bonuses Explained

These work in similar ways to free bets. A common example of a bonus would be when a bookie promises to 100% match your deposit up to a certain amount, say £25. The amount offered will vary between bookmakers, as will the amount they’ll match.

For example, one bookie might promise to match up to £50 100%, whilst another might give you a 50% match on deposits up to £200. Whatever happens, more often than not you’ll receive that matched sum as promotional cash.

Much like the tokens given to you for a free bet, these bonuses will only last for a certain amount of time. You’re also almost certainly going to have to roll them over a number of times before you’ll be able to withdraw them as cash.

The difference between bonuses and free bets is that you can split your bonus up into multiple bets so in general these are seen as better value and give you a better opportunity to try out the bookie.  

You normally have to rollover your free bonus money an certain number of times, usually 3+.  Read the terms as the rollover can include both your deposit amount and bonus. If you deposit £25 and get £25 free, for example, then you’ll need to bet £500 if the rollover requirement is 10x deposit + bonus. That’s £25 + £25 x 10.
