One of the easiest ways in which bookmakers reward their customers is with free bets. It’s very simple to list an offer which will refund losing stakes if a certain set of circumstances drops in and Paddy Power are one of the most active in this respect.
There are free bet deals available for the life of your account and things get underway with a risk free punt when you open an account.
When you open your new Paddy Power account, credit with at least £10.00 but avoid using Skrill or Neteller as these are not acceptable. Debit or credit cards are advisable and you must then stake that £10.00 or more on an event from anywhere in the sportsbook.
If you are a winner then you can collect your profit which will be paid straight back into your account on settlement. However, if the bet were to lose, Paddy Power will refund the first £10.00 of that stake and this will arrive as a free bet token which you must use within 30 days.
Once you have taken advantage of this deal as a new customer, there are a number of regular free bet offers for existing players.
GAA and Football
As a proud Irish bookmaker, Paddy Power are always happy to get behind the new GAA season and you can generally find a free bet deal for all the big hurling games. As of July 2017, the published promotion refunded losing stakes in the first goalscorer betting if your selection went on to score at any time during the match.
The limit involved here was set at £20 or currency equivalent.
Similar offers can also apply during the regular football seasons around Europe. As it was summer, the GAA events had taken over but you can usually find lots of excellent free bet deals when football comes around.
Special events will generally attract special promotions and that’s certainly the case at Paddy Power where you can usually find a number of free bet deals that focus on the big tournaments. So, when the football, cricket or rugby versions of the World Cup come along there will be some deals along with British Open golf and much more.
For Wimbledon 2017, this bookie was offering free bets for every 50 bets that you placed on tennis tournaments. That’s quite a lot to get through but if you were a regular punter on this sport then you should be able to get to that target, at which point Paddy Power would take the average of your stakes and issue a free bet token worth up to a really generous maximum of £250.00.
Horse Racing is a real focus for a traditional bookmaker such as Paddy Power and as one of the only sports to feature racing on virtually every day of the year, you can expect to see some daily free bet specials.
Currently, Paddy are offering money back as a free bet if your horse finishes second, third or fourth to the SP favourite. It’s a promo that applies to two races each day so log in to your account to find out which meetings are involved.
The above deals are just a selection of the many promotions that Paddy Power offer their customers. All are correct as of July 2017 but they can change on a regular basis so keep checking your account and follow our news feeds to find out more.
Please also check terms and conditions of each offer and be aware of the expiry limits of the free bet tokens which can vary depending on which promotion you’re taking up. Overall, this is a very healthy selection and it’s just one example of how Paddy Power offer consistently good value to all their customers.
