[toc]All punters likes to receive a little extra value when they are loyal to a particular sports betting site. And there are many different ways companies can choose to reward their most supportive customers.
Sometimes these rewards schemes can take months before a player earns anything worthwhile, but there are some new bonuses that offer immediate rewards.
One of the most popular ways to reward customers is with a free bet. One of the best offers on the market today in terms of value is from the specialist betting site Betway.
How to join Betway’s Free Bet Club
Joining Betway’s Free Bet Club is very easy. Head over to the Free Bet Club promotional page on the Betway site, and then “opt in” to the promotion by clicking on the green button (while logged in, of course).
From the moment players opt in until 23:59 BST on Friday night, they have to place at least £25 worth of bets on Football Trebles or accumulators with more than three selections.
After placing £25 worth of bets, players will be eligible to receive their first £10 bonus bet the following week. The next qualifying week starts immediately after the current one ends, with the new qualifying week starting at 00:00 Saturday morning.
The £10 free bet comes in the form of two £5 free bets, one of which will be credited to the player on the Saturday at 12:00 BST. The second £5 free bet will be credited on the Monday at 14:00 BST.
The free £5 bet received on Saturday must be used by 12:00 BST on the following Monday. The £5 bet received at 14:00 on the Monday needs to be used before 14:00 BST on the Friday.
Each bet must be used as a single transaction bet on Win or Each Way markets. Free bets cannot be used on Multiple Line bets (such as Trixies, Yankees, etc.).
How do I remain a member of Betway’s Free Bet Club?
To remain a member, place another £25 worth of football treble bets (or accumulator bets with a higher number of selections) during the next qualifying week. Players will once again earn a £10 free bet the following week, and so on.
Membership in the club remains active provided players continue to make £25 worth of treble/accumulator bets each week.
However, it should be noted that the £10 worth of free bets awarded to the player does not constitute £10 toward the bettor’s total for the next qualifying week. Use the £10 free bets and then wager at least another £25 on trebles or accumulators in order to qualify.
What happens if I don’t make the required number of bets in a week?
If players don’t make the required number of bets in a particular week, it will end their membership in the Free Bet club. However, players can rejoin the promotion by opting in again any time.
Does the free sports bet come with any strings attached?
There are some terms and conditions for the free bets beyond just their expiration and their required use as a single transaction bet on a single line market (no multiple line bets allowed).
- If a free bet selection is voided, players will receive the free bet back in their account as another free bet.
- The maximum amount of money players can win on a free bet is £20,000.
- The return from a bet must be greater than the free bet value. This means if players place a £5 Each Way bet on an event, their winnings must be greater than £5 in order for Betway to pay out.
- Redeeming a free bet does not qualify players to watch any live streamed events that require a bet to be made before viewing.
The terms regarding the free bets in the Free Bet Club offer supersede the general Free Bet terms that state free bets must be used within seven days. For the Free Bet Club offer, this is not applicable.
What are the main benefits of the Free Bet Club?
Compared to other loyalty schemes, Betway’s Free Bet Club offers punters a good deal, provided they find the conditions agreeable. It may seem a little skewed toward football betting, but this type of bet is hugely popular with football fans.
Some competing sites offer only a £5 free bet or require players to hit higher totals each week, even if they do have the added flexibility of including sports beyond football.
That said, this is still a great value offer for Betway fans.
