Looking for a new bookmaker? Here are the best offers currently available from our top recommended new betting firms:

Welcome Bonus

All of the best betting sites will offer welcome bonus for new customers, although few will offer a no deposit free bet. These do exist but it is rare to find a UK bookie that is willing to simply give someone a bonus bet just for opening an account. 

Instead the welcome bonus will need to be activated, most likely by making a deposit with the bookmaker. This is not a trick though as there are many firms that will give you a deposit bonus and you are still getting the chance to claim some potential free cash just by betting on your favourite sports.

Matched Deposit Bonus

A deposit bonus is the most common offered by UK bookmakers and generally takes the form of Deposit X and Get Y. Many firms will give you a 100% bonus on your first deposit with the values ranging from £10 to £200 and sometimes even higher. It's easy to claim and you are simply doubling the amount that you can bet with when opening an account with a new bookmaker, which is a great way to start your betting journey.

Some betting firms will offer a value that is either higher or lower than 100%. Frequently bookmakers like to offer small stakes players free bets of £20 or £30 when depositing £10 as this will entice accumulator bettors to join and bet with the bookie. These are bookmaker offers not to be missed and when they are available they should be seized upon as getting two or three times the value of your deposit is great value.

Conversely, there are high stakes firms that offer a lower percentage of a deposit as a free bet or bonus but the value can be higher. These may be 50% of a first deposit of up to £200, which may put some people off, but it should be noted that with a deposit bonus the funds are available to bet with instantly and so it is still an opportunity to buy yourself a very healthy sized bonus.

Risk-Free Bet

Another kind of bookmaker bonus offer that is frequently available is a Risk-Free Bet. This is almost identical to a deposit bonus but works on the principle that the Free Bet only becomes available should your first bet lose. This essentially means that you have two chances to win when you open an account with a bookmaker, both with your first bet and with the second one.

A Risk-Free Bet will often be referred to as an Insurance Bet as claiming this betting offer means that you have insurance on your first bet with a new bookmaker. The one thing to remember when claiming a Risk-Free Bet is that you won't receive a bonus if your first bet wins, although you will obviously be happy enough with your winnings! And if you're first bet is not a winner, please not that your losing stake will be refunded in the form of free bets, meaning you will not be able to simply withdraw your refund as cash.
