What are freebets?

Freebets guide

A freebet offers a certain amount of money that the bookmaker lends to the user to make a prediction. However, the winnings obtained from it cannot be released, but only under very strict conditions.

How to get freebets?

In this case, the freebet is the main advertising claim of the bookmakers, therefore, they can be obtained in different ways: for new users, periodic promotions, loyalty for inactive users.

Freebets for new users: These are the most common, they are obtained by registering as a new user in a bookmaker, which may or may not require an initial deposit.

In this case, there are bookmakers that will offer to double our first deposit in the form of freebets, which is usually a minimum of $10 in all bookmakers, or simply offer us a certain amount of freebets to bet directly without the need to make a previous deposit.

Promotional freebets: This type is the most abundant, as bookmakers offer once or twice a week the chance to get freebets betting on major sporting events, whether football, basketball, tennis….

In this case, some promotions require you to be a new registered user in order to benefit from them, while others are open to the general public. The best thing about these promotions is that they are usually relatively easy to obtain, as the bookmaker’s aim is to get us interested in betting.

Freebets for abandoned users: This last type of freebets is aimed at those users who have not been betting for a long time, so its objective is to re-engage that bettor who, for various reasons, has not been betting for a long time.

Is a freebet the same as a bonus?


Many users tend to confuse what a freebet and a bonus are, which is logical considering that, at first glance, they seem to be identical concepts. However, they are actually different:

The freebet is a bet on which we do not obtain any type of withdrawable profit, although it does not have any type of special condition, it simply works as a test for the user to become familiar with the process.

The Bonus is a freebet with which we can get withdrawable winnings, although to release them we must meet a number of conditions set by the bookmaker itself and that, in most cases, are usually quite demanding, such as having to bet the amount of the bonus 5 or 7 times.

Are there any no deposit freebets?

Yes, bookmakers often offer freebets with no deposit required, for example in the case of regular promotions on certain sporting events. In the case of bonuses, this is less common, as almost all bookmakers require a minimum deposit ($10) before awarding the freebet.

How to take advantage of freebets in your strategies?

Freebets, although they are not really money that we have to withdraw, can be extremely useful when developing a betting strategy, as it is the easiest way to implement our strategy by applying the trial and error method, at least until we have proven that it can work.

Therefore, when we are going to get started in the world of betting and we register for the first time in a bookmaker it is advisable to try to get as many freebets as possible in the Welcome Bonus by depositing $100 instead of $10, as long as our economy allows it.
