One of the world’s best sportsbooks is offering new members a free £25 bet just for signing up and depositing with their site. Betfair is widely known as a unique sportsbook which allows its members to bet against each other instead of against the house.
In your average sportsbook the house sets the betting line, vig, and other odds. Players have little to no say over how the odds are set and what type of vig (rake) they must pay. At Betfair, this couldn’t be further from the truth. You can set your own lines/odds and just pay a small commission to the house in order to bet against fellow gamblers. You can also sort your way through other player’s proposed lines and find a few bets you might like.
The no-deposit bonus is simple, just sign up using the promotional code BET234 and if you deposit with in 21 days you will receive up to £25 back if you lose your first bet. Be patient, it can take Betfair up to 48 hours to place the money in your account. The minimum deposit is £25 as well and you can use ewallets such as Moneybookers, ClickandBuy, NETeller, PayPal and many credit/debit cards. At this time Betfair does not accept US customers.
There are plenty other promotions running at Betfair including bonuses for their casino and poker room. The casino bonus is a 100% up to £50 transfer bonus. You must first deposit money into your Betfair account and then transfer it to the casino. At that point you will receive your bonus funds into your casino account. In order to unlock the bonus you must wager 30x with in 14 days. Games such as craps, single-deck blackjack, baccarat, and roulette are excluded from clearing the bonus.
