Betfair are offering new customers 18+ a fantastic £100 in free bets – and we show you how to start snapping them up by betting on Friday’s football…and hopefully making a big profit!

How do I get £100 in free bets at Betfair?

In all honesty, it’s not a quickfire process. It’s not a “wham bam, thank you ma’am” in the sense that it’s not one bet = one free bet.

Instead, Betfair like to reward loyalty from customers who will stay with them rather than the ‘here today gone tomorrow’ types who are in it for one quick hit.

And that’s fine by us, because the £100 in free bets offer allows you to build up your betting bank and/or withdraw any profits just as long as you stick to the criteria for the promotion.

How much do I need to stake to get £100 in free bets?

The short answer is £250. But not all at once – it’s essentially five £10 bets to trigger a £20 free bet, and you can do that five times to reach the maximum £100 in free bets.

So it works like this:

  1. Open a Betfair account via this link
  2. Place 5 single bets of £10 or more on different Betfair Sportsbook markets at minimum odds of 1/2
  3. After your 5 qualifying bets have been settled, you will receive a £20 free bet
  4. Repeat this process up to 5 times to receive the maximum available bonus of £100 (5x £20 free bets)

What else do I need to know?

  • Qualifying bets are those placed and settled within the first 30 days after you open your account
  • Cashed Out and Voided bets do not qualify
  • Bets placed using free bets as the stake (in full or part) will not qualify
  • Only one bet per event qualifies
  • Multiple bets are excluded
  • Free bets are valid for 30 days

Which qualifying bets should I place?

Let’s bag a £20 free bet on Friday by betting on the Euro 2020 qualifying matches. We only have 30 days to get the full £100 of free bets available so there’s no time like the present to crack on!

Bet No 1: Cyprus to win at home to Kazakhstan @ 6/5 with Betfair

Kazakhstan are three points ahead of Cyprus in Group I, but we expect that will all change here because the Hawks are not the best travellers.

A 3-0 win over Scotland showed what Kazakhstan can do on home soil, but it is a different story when they venture towards western Europe where they are less effective and Cyprus can gain a victory that would just about keep them in the qualification hunt.

Bet No 2: Germany to win at home to the Netherlands @ 19/20 with Betfair

These countries are vying with Northern Ireland for the two places at Euro 2020 from qualifying Group C – and Germany can boast a 100% record in their three matches so far.

Joachim Low’s side have already won 3-2 in the Netherlands and although they were held at home by the Dutch in a Nations League match last autumn, the stakes will be seen as higher this time.

Bet No 3: Scotland vs Russia – Draw @ 2/1 with Betfair

This looks an evenly-matched contest, which is why the price for the Draw is on the short side – but it is a highly feasible outcome.

Russia have been in very good form in their last few qualifiers while Scotland are strong at home in competitive matches, so there looks little to choose between these sides.

Bet No 4: Slovakia vs Croatia – Both teams to score @ 11/10 with Betfair

This is the first ever competitive meeting between these countries and there is nothing to separate them in Group E so far, both having won twice and suffered a narrow defeat away from home.

Croatia are not as strong as when they reached the 2018 World Cup Final and with both teams having scored in each of their last seven matches, that looks the way to bet here.

Bet No 5: Wales to win at home to Azerbaijan and under 2.5 goals in the match @ 6/4 with Betfair

This is simply a must-win game for Wales if they are to retain realistic hopes of repeating their appearance in the 2016 European Championship.

But the Dragons are not a free-scoring side and as most of their previous meetings with Azerbaijan have been tight affairs, a 1-0 or 2-0 success looks distinctly likely.

Potential returns from our five £10 bets = £117.50…and you will receive a £20 free bet.

Good luck!

*New customer offer. Place 5 x €/£10 or more bets to receive €/£20 in free bets. Repeat up to 5 times to receive maximum €/£100 bonus. Min odds 1/2 (1.5). Exchange bets excluded. T&Cs apply.
