What should I look out for when choosing a betting promo code?

Use the regulated bookmakers we have suggested to find your bet bonus code - there are black market bookmakers operating and it is important you use regulated operators.

In most instances, you are required to deposit into your account before your bonus is credited. Prior to that, read through all the terms and conditions below to ensure it is the correct offer for you:

  • Eligible markets - offers are often restricted to different types of bets and markets. For example a bonus code bet offer may only be available if you place it on a specific market.
  • Minimum stake - the stake you place will often be set at a minimum amount. Usually around €5, €10 or €20. If you place lower than those amounts, your bet will not be valid.
  • Minimum odds - if a horse is a short-priced favourite, you may be restricted to betting on that horse. Minimum odds are usually around 1-2 or 6-4.
  • Expiry after a specific number of days - make sure you use your free bet code within the time period stated. For example, you may have seven days to claim a free bet.
  • Maximum winnings - to avoid huge payouts, bookmakers restrict the amount you can win so identify what your payout is likely to be and if it is worth your time.

Not all major bookmakers use betting promos, however below is a list of bookmakers to consider if you are looking for free bets offers.

What types of bonus betting codes are there?

Today's Nap

Huntingdon 1.30 Le Tueur
This could be between Spotty Dog and Le Tueur, both of whom won over this C&D earlier in the month. The former has gone up 6lb for that hard-fought success, while the latter has since defied a 7lb hike to follow up at Fakenham and another 3lb rise in the ratings may not be enough to halt Sarah Humphrey's in-form gelding. Aikenbreakinheart arrives on the back of a comfortable victory at Wincanton and the handicapper has only put him up 2lb for that, so Richard Rowe's inmate could have a big say again.
