At BettingOffers.org.uk, we showcase the latest betting offers from leading UK online betting sites and bookmakers. And unlike most betting guides, we list all offers – not just the ones for new customers.
Below you’ll find a list of the best free bets currently available – these are introductory offers that can only be claimed when signing up (hence ‘sign up bonus’ or SUB). If you don’t have accounts with the bookmakers and betting sites in the table, we strongly recommend getting one as they are not only some of the best bookies on the web, but they also offer a large majority of the cashback offers that we list elsewhere on the site. For a larger list of free bet bonuses, head on over to our free bets page.

New Betting Sites For 2023
Below you’ll find details of the latest betting sites and online bookmakers to launch, or open their doors to the UK market. Just like the rest of the site we’ve carefully vetted each and every site before adding them so even though they’re new, they still come with our stamp of approval.
Quinnbet are coming in hard with their seemingly endless list of promotions for football, racing, golf, tennis... in fact, if you can bet on it there's probably some kind of offer that applies here. Note that they operate different welcome bonuses for the UK and Ireland, so choose the relevant link: UK Customers / Irish Customers
Parimatch are an international bookmaker who have partnered with BetVictor to enter the UK market. This means that whilst they may be technically new to the UK, they certainly know what they're doing and have a big British name to help them. In terms of product you'll find something quite similar to BetVictor, but there are usually a few different offers.

This Week in Sport: 4th to 10th December 2023
We have a double dose of Premier League action this week, with a full list of midweek and weekend fixtures. Also in the mix are two excellent chase events from Sandown and Aintree, a world title cruiserweight dust-up, England ODI, and the latest stop on the DP World Tour.
Premier League: Big Guns Clash in Midweek
A midweek treat for Premier League fans sees all 20 sides in action between Tuesday and Thursday. Highlights include Luton welcoming Arsenal to Kenilworth Road, Tottenham Hotspur’s clash with London neighbours West Ham United, and a cracking Wednesday night double of Aston Villa vs Manchester City and Manchester United vs Chelsea.
Cricket: England Bid to Bounce Back
Hot on the heels of a nightmare World Cup in India, the England Cricket Team are on their travels once more, this time to the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua for an ODI series against the West Indies. Match 2 takes place on Wednesday afternoon.
Alfred Dunhill Championship: Tour Heads to Leopard Creek
The South African swing of the DP Tour sees the action move to the Malalane course of Leopard Creek - complete with the ominously named Alligator River, which snakes through the facility. Ockie Strydom and Christian Bezuidenhout have kept the prize on home soil in the past two years, in an event which invariably attracts the top European talent.
Premier League: Champions League Hopefuls Do Battle
Sunday afternoon sees the ultimate David vs Goliath clash in the Premier League, as Luton Town play host to Champions Manchester City. Elsewhere, we have two games with strong Champions League implications, as Aston Villa lock horns with Arsenal and Newcastle United travel to north London to take on Spurs.
EFL Championship: Hornets vs Tractor Boys Headlines
Moving down a tier, things are beginning to shape up in the Championship as we move into the busy Christmas period. Eye-catching matchups from the weekend round of fixtures include Coventry City vs Birmingham City, Sunderland vs West Brom, and Watford vs Ipswich Town.
Boxing: Billam-Smith Defends Cruiserweight Crown
Fight fans will be taking to the sofa on Saturday evening as England’s Chris Billam-Smith makes the first defence of his WBO Cruiserweight title since defeating Lawrence Okolie in May. Lying in wait across the ring is big-hitting Polish fighter Mateusz Masternak. Billam-Smith starts as a heavy favourite in what promises to be an exciting clash between two men who like to go for the knockout.
Tingle Creek Chase: Jonbon The One To Beat
The Saturday afternoon highlight from Sandown has been won by a number of 2m chasing greats, including Kauto Star, Sprinter Sacre, and Altior. Bidding to add his name to that list in 2023 is the red-hot favourite Jonbon. Nicky Henderson’s star has been impressive of late but will need to bring his A-game, with the talented Edwardstone and Irish raider Captain Guinness amongst the likely opposition.
Becher Chase: Grand National Fences Take Centre Stage
Over at Aintree, we have one of the seasonal highlights at the Merseyside venue, as the runners and riders tackle the likes of Becher’s Brook, The Chair, and Foinavon in the 3m2f Becher’s Chase. Grand National hero Corach Rambler and defending champ Ashtown Lad are amongst the likely favourites for what promises to be a thrilling spectacle.

Latest Online Betting Offers & Promotions
Of course, we cover plenty more offers than just the ones you see listed on this page – you can find the full list of promotions for each sport on the relevant category pages (we currently have them for football, horse racing, rugby, tennis and golf). In addition, we also provide individual guides to larger sporting events such as the Cheltenham Festival and the Grand National which you can find links to in the section above.
Latest Offers For Existing Customers
In this next section we’ll cover the more common types of offer that a lot of bookmakers tend to offer. That doesn’t mean that they’re all the same though, as you’ll find that variation in the terms can make a big difference to the value of an offer. For each promotion we’ve written a guide comparing the betting sites that offer it, explaining how it works and how to make the most of it.
- Accumulator Insurance – A very popular promotion that’s offered by many bookmakers, yet varies wildly from site to site. The basic premise involves getting your money back (usually as a free bet) if only one leg of your accumulator loses. However, what you can bet on, and how many legs you need to place is different at pretty much every bookie. Some offer it on BTTS accas with 4 or more legs, whilst others will let you bet on any market in any sport, but require at least 6 legs. So which offer you go for is going to depend on what you want to bet on.
- Accumulator Bonuses – Alternatively, if you’d favour a bonus on your winning accas over insurance on your losing ones, then go for an accumulator bonus. These payout an extra bonus of between 5% and 100% on your winning bets, with the actual percentage depending on the number of legs.
- Loyalty Offers & Free Bets – On this website we feature many money back specials and other offers that can be claimed by existing customers at a bookie, but this section looks specifically at bonuses, rewards and free bets that are available to all customers. Included in this guide are reload bonuses, loyalty programs and even who’s more likely to dish out free bets.
- Best Odds Guaranteed – A simple promotion, but one that can make a big difference to your winnings. This offer normally applies to horse racing and/or greyhoud racing and gives you the better odds out of the SP and the price you took. So if the odds drift, you’ll still get paid the bigger price, and if they shorten, you get the longer odds you originally took.
- Price Promise – Price promises are most common in horse racing, but sometimes happen in football and other sports as well. Put simply, the bookmaker offers the best odds when compared to other bookmakers. And if they don’t, they’ll match it. Put simply, a price promise means you don’t need to go hunting for the best odds, as you’re guaranteed to have them.
- Horse Racing Extra Place Races – This promotion sees additional places paid for each way bets on horse racing. This is normally one additional place and could see you getting a return on your wager when your selection finishes outside of the standard each way terms.
- Golf Extra Places – These offers give you extra places for each way bets on the outright winners of golf tournaments. Offers available can give anything up to seven extra places above the traditional five available.
- Free Bets For Winners – There are many promotions offering free bets for placing a losing bet but these offers are applied when you have a winner. They tend to be awarded when placing a winning bet above a certain price on selected horse races but can be on others sports also.
Latest Stats & Trends
For most of the bookmakers listed on our website we’ve also written detailed reviews. You can find a list of these below, sorted alphabetically. If you’re looking for a quicker read, we’ve also written summaries of our top 10 recommendations on our betting sites page.
About This Site
Pretty much all of the big UK bookmakers offer money back specials and promotions for the big sports betting events, and the bigger the event, the bigger the offers. But keeping track of these offers can be a nightmare – especially when you consider that bookies tend to release their promotions at the last minute.
So that’s where we come in. At Betting Offers we list the best offers from trusted and reliable bookmakers (you’ll probably recognise a large chunk of the betting sites we feature) all of which are neatly categorised by sport and removed from our listings as soon as they’re no longer available.
On all of our list pages we sort the offers according to the date the promotion expires – so a cash back special for tonights game will appear higher on the list than an offer for tomorrows game. However, some bookmakers run ongoing promotions that are valid for multiple games – because these either have a longer validity period (or no expiry date at all) they will appear towards the end of the lists. So it’s a good idea to have a scroll through to make sure that you don’t miss out on an offer that you might otherwise be interested in.
Betting Offers Explained
Just in case you’re scratching your head wondering what we’re going on about, we figured it’s probably worth giving you a quick run down on the different types of promotion you’ll find on this website:
Introductory Free Bets/Bonuses
The first is for sign-up offers and welcome bonuses – to claim these you will need to be a new customer at the site. These promotions are usually in the form of a completely free bet, matched bet or deposit bonus. These bonuses are great for general betting and there are plenty of them – you can either browse our list at the top of the page to see our favourites, or for a longer list, head on over to the free bets page.
The second type of offers are open to everyone – including both new customers and existing customers. Some of these offers such as have been running for a long time, whilst others relate to a specific event and end very quickly. This second category of promotion is incredibly varied and consists of:
- Cashback/Money Back Specials: Here you receive your money back if something specific happens. For example you might get your money back on a correct score bet if a red card is shown at any point during the game, or if your horse loses by less than a length.
- Reload Bonuses: Top up your account with the bookie and they might give you some bonuses to bet with. For example, get a bonus worth 50% of your next deposit.
- Product Incentives: Sometimes a bookmaker will offer up some free bets or bonuses to try out a new product or market.
- Enhanced Payouts: This is where your bet will be paid out at higher odds than normal. For example, you could get paid out at triple odds if you place a Lucky 15 bet and only get one winner correct.
- Free Bets: Last up are free bets which are making an appearance here as well as in the introductory section. Sometimes bookies will give out free bets if something specific happens such as correctly picking the winner of a featured horse race with odds over a set threshold (eg: 4/1).
There are, of course, other kinds of offer and the bookies are very good at coming up with new and unique ideas to keep their punters happy. So take a browse of the latest offerings in the feed above and see what takes your fancy!
Frequently Asked Questions
Here we’ll quickly run over some of the more common questions about betting sign up offers.
Q. Which Bookies Offer Free Bets?
These days, pretty much all of them will run some kind of promotion for their a new customer and many offer them for existing customers as well. How generous the offers are and what you can do with them will vary between sites though so make sure you have a good look around and compare what’s up for grabs so that you know that you’re getting a good deal.
Q. How Do You Claim a Free Bet?
The nitty gritty of how you claim an offer may be slightly different for each site, but the overall principle is the same:
- Sign up – To claim a new customer you’ll need to sign up for a new account. If you’ve previously had an account with the betting site, even if that account was closed, you normally can’t claim the welcome bonus if you register again.
- Make a deposit – Almost all offers require a real money deposit and in the sports world offers that you can claim without making a deposit (ie: a no-deposit free bet) are very rare. Some sites will have casino offers, such as free spins, which are credited just for signing up but for a free bet you’ll almost always need to deposit. The minimum required deposit will vary based on the offer but could be as low as £5.
- Place a qualifying bet – With your newly funded account you will now need to place a qualifying bet. Most sites will assign minimum odds to the bet, sometimes evens or 1/2. If the offer is specific to a sport or event, make sure your first bet is placed on the correct market.
- Receive your free bet – Once your qualifying bet is place you should receive your free bet in due course. Some sites will award it after your qualifying bet has been placed whilst others required your bet to have settled first. Bets are usually added within 24 hours of meeting the requirements, although some sites can take a little longer.
Q. How Do You Use a Free Bet?
Now that you have your free bet in hand, you’ll want to use it. Most sites these days have an option on the bet slip to apply a free bet credit to your wager, so all you need to do is make your selection and check the relevant box. If no option appears or you receive an error, make sure that the bet you’re trying to place meets the terms and conditions of the offer.
Q. Can I Claim More Than One Sign Up Offer Per Site?
With new customer offers once you have redeemed them they will no longer be available to you, so you can’t repeatedly claim a “Bet £5 Get £20” promo with the same bookie. Sometimes sites will have a choice of welcome offer, again your will normally be limited to one – so if you’ve claimed an enhanced odds sign up offer for the Man United match you can’t then claim the a Bet Through the Card offer at the Cheltenham Festival.
In some cases you may be able to claim additional welcome bonuses for different products and some sites will let you redeem a casino or bingo bonus even if you’ve received whatever sports betting deal they were offering, but this needs to be taken on a case by case basis.
Q. What is the Minimum Deposit at a Betting Site?
The exact minimum will vary by site and payment method, but for the majority of the big names the minimum deposit that you’ll be able to make via a debit card is £5. For alternative methods such as PayPal you may find a larger minimum of £10. You may also be pleased to hear that £5 is also sufficient to trigger a welcome bonus at a lot of bookies, sometimes even for £30 or more.
Q. Why is the Minimum Deposit £5 if the Minimum Bet for the Offer is £1?
It is true that some enhanced odds offers only require a £1 qualifying bet, but the minimum deposit at a betting site is normally at least £5. We can see how this might look a little strange but it’s likely an administrative quirk rather than an attempt to catch you out.
When these enhanced odds offers are available they normally dramatically increase the odds of the bet, taking an odds on favourite for the football on Saturday to an almost unbelievable price of 25/1. These offers are meant to be headline grabbing and almost certainly cost the bookie money, therefore they can only let you have a token bet at that amount – hence the £1 qualifying bet.
At the same time, most bookies payment systems will have a minimum of £5 or more which they’re not going to change for the sake of one short term sign up offer.
It does introduce a slightly frustrating scenario where you deposit £5 and bet £1, potentially leaving £4 in your account, but the minimum withdrawal is probably also £5. In this case your choices are to use the £4 in your account for something else, or deposit additional funds to reach the minimum withdrawal level.
