There are more and more people these days who bet on sports both on and off the internet. Some people like my own self bet regularly on sports while there are those people who do that when there are big sporting events. Events such as the UEFA champions league, the FIFA world cup, the Grand National event, the Gold cup and so on. There are several hundreds of sporting events the world over that attracts sports bettors.
During the days preceding big sporting events, bookmakers offer putters promotions and special offers which enables bettors to end free bets while participating in the different special offers. A free bet is often given when a putter places a qualifying bet at their favourite sportsbook. For instance, Sportsbook X may offer a bonus of $10 which can be claimed when you place a bet of $10 and above at odds of +100 or more.
Most times, before a putter can claim a free bet, he or she needs to place a bet of $10 or more on an event which has an odd of at least +100. The putter gets a free bet once his or her qualifying bet has been settled; he or she will receive $10 free bet. Most times, you stand to win a free bet regardless of whether your qualifying bet wins or loses the bet but it is better to check the bookmaker’s terms and conditions to be on the safe side.
However, it is important to note that in some cases, free bets are only available to putters who bet on certain events and lose. For example, there are many instances in football betting in which a putter is refunded if he or she bets on the goal scorer market and another player which was not bet on scores.
E: g in a match involving Real Madrid and Barcelona. A bookmaker can offer odds on Messi scoring the first goal for instance, if during the match Ronaldo scores the first goal, those who placed their bets on Messi scoring the first goal will be refunded. There may also be offers on who gets the first yellow card of the match.
Free bets are however often very small due to their nature. It is not unusual to see putters winning in the range of $10-$50, but the good thing is that there are usually several offers from different bookmakers in the industry which you can claim. Bettors who are not from the USA have the most advantage here; however, this is not to say there are no options open to the betting public in the USA as well.
It often takes a while before you can claim every free bet bonus, but after a month or there about you, you would have been able to generate as much as $1000 in free bet offers if you use the best sports betting sites. A good move is to ensure you withdrawal all yours free bet winnings from every bookmaker and accumulate the fund if you want to build a starting bankroll to handicap sports.
After you have used up all your free bets from the sportsbook of your choice, you should have all your winnings which you can then use as your starting bankroll. The good thing about this method is that you have the chance of trying with virtually all the major bookmakers in the industry which affords you very useful betting experience.
By the time you are doing using the earning from your free bets, you will know the bookmaker that will work best for you in terms of wager types, payouts, special offers, betting odds and the likes.
