Betfair are offering new customers 18+ a fantastic £100 in free bets. We show you how to start snapping them up by betting on this weekend’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 simple 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 (5 x £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 this weekend by betting £10 on each of the following Premier League 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: Bournemouth vs Aston Villa – Home win @ 11/10 with Betfair

Victory for either of these teams would be vital in the Premier League relegation battle and we are backing Bournemouth to follow up their recent home win over Brighton.

The Cherries are a more effective outfit at their own Vitality Stadium and their chances here are boosted by the fact that Villa have not kept a clean sheet away from home all season.

Bet No 2: Crystal Palace vs Sheffield United – Home win @ 21/10 with Betfair

Only three points separate these clubs in the table and Crystal Palace look good value to draw level with Sheffield United by beating them at Selhurst Park.

Although only runaway leaders Liverpool have lost fewer away Premier League games this term than Sheffield United, Palace generally keep things tight on their own pitch and in what is likely to be a match of few goals, the Eagles look a big price to snatch it.

Bet No 3: Liverpool vs Southampton – Home win and under 3.5 goals @ 11/10 with Betfair

Southampton are in excellent form, but that is unlikely to bring them any joy at Anfield because Liverpool are simply on a different level to every other team in England at present.

However, the Reds are largely winning within themselves, achieving routine successes without moving through all the gears, perhaps to conserve energy for when the Champions League resumes, and so we are backing this to be another of those perfunctory triumphs.

Bet No 4: Watford vs Everton – Home win @ 9/5 with Betfair

Nigel Pearson remains unbeaten at Vicarage Road as Watford manager and that is backed to remain the case courtesy of a victory against Everton.

Away form has been a bugbear for the Toffees over the last couple of seasons and shows no sign of improving yet under Carlo Ancelotti, so the Hornets are a tempting price to continue their home improvement with Pearson in charge.

Bet No 5: Burnley vs Arsenal – Away win @ Evens with Betfair

Arsenal have compiled a fantastic head-to-head record against Burnley under their previous managers Unai Emery and Arsene Wenger, so it will be disappointing if Mikel Arteta cannot maintain that winning sequence at Turf Moor.

Arteta looks to have got the Gunners on the right path even if progress so far has been steady rather than spectacular and they should have too much quality for the industrious Clarets.

Potential total returns from our five £10 bets = £121…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.
