Betting Loyalty Rewards – Regular Free Bets For Existing Customers
Just like airlines, supermarkets and your local coffee shop, some online bookmakers run loyalty programs for their customers. Whilst these kinds of rewards aren’t as common in the sports betting world as they are for other forms of online betting (casinos and poker, for example, tend to have very generous loyalty schemes) there are a few decent ones out there.
Most take the form of a free bet club, where free bets are issued on a weekly basis, but also included in the list are monthly reload bonuses and good old fashioned loyalty points.
1. Coral – Bet & Get Club (£5 Free Bet + 10 Spins)
Coral’s ‘Bet & Get Club‘ offers you a £5 free bet and 10 free spins every week. To claim you’ll need to opt in and bet £25 on any sport between Monday and Thursday. If you qualify you’ll then receive the free bet and free spins on the Friday, which will need to be used before the weekend is up.
The minimum odds for your bets to qualify for the club are evens and it includes both singles and multiples, and even full cover bets such as a lucky 15. Once received the free bet comes with a minimum odds requirement of 1/2.
That’s pretty much it, there’s no requirement saying you need to claim every week so you can dip in and out as you fancy. The only other thing we should mention is that bets are counted when they’re settled, not when they’re placed – so bear than in mind when planning you bets.
2. Betway – £10 Weekly Free Bet
A relatively recent addition to the world of weekly free bets, Betway are offering all of their eligible customers a £10 bonus when you bet £25 or more on football accumulators in a week. To qualify you need to opt in on the Betway website and only accumulators with three or more legs count towards the promo, you also need to meet the minimum odds requirement of 2/1.
Do so before the end of Friday and you’ll receive two x £5 bonuses. The first bonus is credited to your account on Saturday morning and expires at midday on the Monday, whilst the second bonus will be added at 2pm on Monday and expires on Friday. This offer is available every week, so get betting.
3. SkyBet – £5 Weekly Free Bet
Sky offer their customers a £5 free bet every week as part of their ‘Free Bet Club’. To get the free bet you need to opt in and then place £25 in qualifying bets before midnight on Sunday – everybody that does this will receive a £5 free bet credited to their account the following Monday.
Eligible bets must be at odds of evens or more, and excludes totepool betting and any bet that you’ve cashed out. It’s also a cumulative £25, not a single £25 bet. So you can qualify by placing 25 x £1 bets. Free bets last until the end of the week, after which they’ll expire if unused.
In previous incarnations of the free bet club you needed to keep claiming it every week or you’d be kicked out. However, the current form simply opts you out of the promotion if you haven’t claimed it for two or more weeks in a row. To get back in all you need to do is opt in again and place your £25 in bets.
4. 10Bet & RealDealBet – Monthly Reload Bonuses
Whilst not strictly rewards programs, sister sites 10Bet and RealDealBet both offer monthly reload bonus which are regular enough to warrant including in this section. The bonuses changes each month in both value and percentage, and whilst it’s usually themed around the big event of the month (eg: start of the new football season, Wimbledon etc..) you can use them to bet on whatever you like.
To claim the bonuses you need to enter a code which changes each month – for the current one, see the promotions page of the 10Bet website and the RealDealBet website. Once the code has been entered and you have made your deposit you need to roll your deposit over once at odds of 1.6 or more – as soon as you’ve done this the bonus will be added to your account.
Whilst the two sites are connected, at time of writing there’s nothing stopping you from claiming the monthly bonuses at both sites. So sign up with each bookie and double your reloads instantly:
- 10Bet – Get this months bonus code on the 10Bet website
- RealDealBet – For the latest RDB bonus code see the RealDealBet website
5. ComeOn – Loyalty Points
ComeOn have a long running rewards points promotion which is the closest thing to a traditional loyalty scheme that you’re going to find. Membership to the scheme is automatic and earns you loyalty points for everything you do on the site – this includes placing bets (with points boosts for accumulators), depositing and even logging in.
You can exchange your points on demand in the ComeOn shop for a variety of different rewards such as cash bonuses, reload bonuses or (if you only have a couple of points) entry into prize draws.
Offers Not Currently Running
The following promotions are not currently being offered. However, they do come back from time to time and are worth knowing about so that you can keep your eye out for them. For this reason, we’ll leave them here for reference purposes, but be aware that you won’t actually be able to claim them at this time.
ComeOn: Up To £1k A Week In Free Bets
The biggest and most generous promotion is run by online-only sportsbook ComeOn who offer up to £1,000 in free bets each week based on your activity in the previous week (Monday to Sunday). In order for a bet to be counted in the total for the week, it must be settled (not just placed) and have minimum odds of 1.75 (3/4).
To take part you need to opt in on the ComeOn website (only once) and then place your bets as normal. There are five levels of reward you can achieve:
- £100 = £5
- £1,000 = £25
- £2,500 = £75
- £10,000 = £250
- £100,000 = £1,000
You can only receive one reward each week based on the highest level reached (eg: if you bet £1,000 you will receive a £25 bonus) which will be credited by 7pm on the following Monday. The bonus money is valid for 7 days and whilst it does come with a rollover requirement, it’s a very low 1x – so receive £25 and you only have to bet £25 before you can withdraw your winnings.
The bar has most definitely been raised with this offer, and we’re hoping we’ll see a few more bookmakers follow suit.
