Betway have been trading online since 2007 and have recently made some very big breakthroughs. A strong advertising campaign and some very effective sports sponsorship have made them a much more recognisable brand in recent years and their customer base has undoubtedly grown as a result.
Beyond the familiar name, there is lots to enjoy as a Betway customer and from the very start of your account, the bookmaker will look to reward you with some free bets.
Betway’s opening offer for new customers is a matched deposit which comes back to you as a free bet token and it can earn up to a healthy £30.00 at its top level. The first step is to sign up for a new account and this is a very quick process, after which you will need to make your qualifying deposit.
Credit at least £10.00 at this point and note that the acceptable methods of deposit for this offer are debit / credit card or PayPal. When funds have cleared and this will usually be immediate, a first qualifying bet must be made under the following terms.
Bets must be placed at the equivalent of your deposit. Singles can be made as long as these carry odds of 3/4 or higher while multiple bets can also be made with each leg of the multi having a minimum price of 2/5.
A free bet token will then be issued that matches the amount of your stake and you then have 7 days in which to use this token before it expires.
Betway have also published the occasional offer that gives enhanced odds on a certain event. These are open to new customers only and any profits at the boosted figure will come back into a player’s account as free bet tokens.
Unlike other bookies, Betway are fairly quiet in this respect although these have appeared at the bigger sporting events such as the Cheltenham Festival and they may come around again in the future. If these sound like a better alternative to the generic welcome deal, then check the bookmaker’s website or keep following our news feeds for any updates.
Loyalty Inspired Free Bets
Betway are one of a number of bookmakers who have a ‘free bet club’: this is a form of loyalty programme which will issue free bet tokens on a regular basis as long as you meet certain staking requirements.
With the programme on offer from Betway, players must stake at least £25.00 on multi bets containing at least three selections. These must be placed in a 7 day period and when the threshold is hit, the operator will issue a free bet token worth £10.00. Bets must be staked on selections that carry minimum odds of 2/1 and when those tokens are issued, they will come back to the customer as two separate amounts of £5.00.
Other free bet promos will vary depending on the time of year and the sporting events that are taking place. Over the course of the English summer of 2017, Betway got behind Rugby League in a big way with an offer that doubled your profits in the result market if your team were losing at half time and went on to win the match.
Under this deal, the maximum extra profit was set at a generous £50.00 and the additional returns would come back to the customer as free bet tokens.
A very similar promo was published for the Wimbledon Tennis championships of the same year with Betway paying double winnings in the result betting if your selection won having lost the first set. Once again, the extra profit came back as free bet tokens with the limit reduced this time to £25.00.
While these offers can’t be guarantees of what to expect moving forward, we may well see similar deals when the football season returns later in 2017. The best option is to log in to your Betway account on a regular basis and look for free bet promos or, you can check our news feeds for latest deals.
Above all, this is a very active operator for this type of offer so check all terms and conditions and get involved.
