Many online bookmakers have a free bet club of some description; in this article, we will Betway’s offering. The purpose of a good free bet club (from the bookie’s perspective) is to keep bettors active and to ensure they retain their custom.
So, what’s the deal with Betway’s Free Bet Club? As a punter, is it worth the effort and money? Let’s break it down, and find out.
Free Bet Club
This is a straightforward promotion in all fairness, but that doesn’t mean it is suitable for every type of punter. The bottom line for the Betway Free Bet Club is as follows:
Bet £25 on accumulators in a week and get £10 in free bets (credited as 2 x £5 bets)
Immediately, if you’re a casual punter who only has a small flutter each weekend, this free bet club isn’t for you. However, for anyone who regularly bets £25 or more during the week, this is an easy way to pick up a bonus.
Let’s go back to the top, and examine it in more detail. The first thing you must be aware of is that you must opt-in to this promotion before you place your bets. Think is done by logging in to your Betway account and clicking the ‘Promotions’ tab. Then select ‘opt-in’ for the free bet club.
With that sorted, the next thing you need to know is the time constraints each week. All your qualifying accumulators must be settled between Saturday 00:00 GMT and Friday 23:59 GMT. You will not qualify for your free bets if you place a £10 acca on a Friday and a £15 acca on Saturday because these are two separate weeks.
Lastly, your accumulator bets must have a minimum of 3 selections (folds), and the total odds must be greater than 2/1 (3.00 in decimal). This prevents punters from backing three red hot favourites as the overall odds will not reach 2/1. However, with a bit of research into your prefered sport, you shouldn’t have too much trouble building an accumulator up to these odds.
There is no requirement on how these acca bets are placed. You can qualify by making one £25 bet or by placing 25 x £1 bets. As long as you adhere to the time frame, minimum selections and minimum overall odds.
When do you get your Betway free bets? For the weeks when you qualify, you will receive your first £5 free bet on the Saturday which follows, and the second £5 free bet is awarded to you on Monday. For instance, the time frame for the weekly free bet club started on Saturday 1st of Feb and finished on Friday the 7th. You made your qualifying bets within this period. Therefore, you get £5 on Saturday the 8th of Feb and another £5 on Monday the 10th.

Along with 4 To Score, this is another stellar promotion from Betway. As highlighted, it won’t suit all punters, and we don’t advise betting more than you normally would simply to grab this bonus. However, if you already fulfil the criteria in regards to wagering more than £25 a week, and you have a penchant for accas, this free bet club will be right up your street. Furthermore, there is nothing in the terms and conditions to suggest that your qualifying bets cannot be created using the new #BetYourWay bet builder. This is something worth checking out.
