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 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 on the 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 – Everton to win away to Aston Villa @ 13/10 with Betfair

This is the first Premier League match of the weekend on Friday night and Everton have made a much more solid start to the season than Villa, who have lost two out of two so far.

The Toffees are looking strong at the back with a pair of clean sheets and they have widened their range of options up front this summer, with their new signings hungry for a chance to impress.

Bet No 2 – Chelsea to win away to Norwich City @ 4/5 with Betfair

This has become something of a must-win game for Chelsea manager Frank Lampard after an uncertain start to his reign at Stamford Bridge, and he will know his side cannot afford to slip up at Carrow Road.

Norwich enjoyed an excellent 3-1 victory over Newcastle last weekend but face a much more difficult task against a classier Chelsea team who are sure to be up for this test.

Bet No 3 – Manchester United -1 on the handicap at home to Crystal Palace @ 11/10 with Betfair

United will have been seething at missing the chance to beat Wolves on Monday when Paul Pogba missed a vital penalty in their 1-1 draw and they can take out their frustration on Crystal Palace.

The Eagles have a poor record against United, especially at Old Trafford, and the fact they have not yet scored a goal themselves this season suggests they could be in for another emphatic defeat at this venue.

Bet No 4 – Manchester City -2 on the handicap away to Bournemouth @ 7/5 with Betfair

Bournemouth have lost eight out of eight against City in the Premier League and given that the champions triumphed 5-0 away to West Ham on the opening weekend, another one-sided scoreline could be in store here.

Pep Guardiola’s side have won 10 away matches in a row in domestic competitions and despite being held 2-2 at home by Tottenham last week, their supremacy shows no signs of being eroded.

Bet No 5 – Tottenham to win to nil at home to Newcastle United @ 10/11 with Betfair

Spurs have yet to keep a clean sheet this season but they should feel confident of doing so against a Newcastle side who have become favourites for relegation.

The Magpies managed only a late consolation goal in a 3-1 defeat at Norwich, look short of firepower and Spurs should be confident of beating them given all their attacking quality.

Potential returns from our five £10 bets = £105.09…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.
