How to use Free Bets at William Hill?

It is always good to receive a free bet and that can happen a fair amount when gambling with William Hill. When you register with the site, you can receive £30 in free bets. There are also promotions such as    that can also see you being given free bets.

When free bets are received, it is important to know how to use them. There will be terms and conditions attached to them and you need to adhere to them. Failure to do so can see your free bets being lost and that’s the last thing anyone wants to see.

Here we look at:

  • The terms and conditions in place
  • How best to use a free bet? 

Terms and Conditions

When free bets are offered by William Hill, they set down terms and conditions. You will have to follow a set of rules to get hold of the free bets in the first place. For example, with their welcome offer, you need to deposit and bet £10 on a selection with minimum odds of 1.5 (1/2). Then when the qualifying bet settles, you receive two £15 free bets, again now there are terms and conditions that have to be followed.

You need firstly to look at how long the free bets will be in your William Hill account. With the welcome offer, there is 30 days before they expire. Make a mental note of that, just imagine how you will feel if they expire without use.

The two £15 free bets that you receive can only be used in a certain way. You can’t use them on a system bet such as a Lucky 15 for example. When they are used on a sportsbook event, the selection you make must have odds of at least 1.5 (1/2). The stake will not be returned with any winnings. So, if you use a £15 free bet on a selection with odds of 2.0 (1/1) and it wins, £15 will be paid into your account. There are no wagering requirements that have to be fulfilled before a withdrawal is possible.

There are other promotions that can see you receive free bets. The Acca Freedom promotion can see you receive a maximum of £20 (or currency equivalent). Again, there are terms and conditions in place. They expire after 30 days, the stake is not returned with any winnings and if you use just part of the free bet, the remaining amount is lost, so best not to do that. 

With the Free or 4 game, you can receive a free bet to the value of either £1, £5 or £200. They have to be used on any market listed under ‘ALL SPORTS’ but not on lotteries or pool and tote bets in horse racing. Just choose six games in which you believe three or four goals will be scored, full details on the William Hill promotions page.

Always look on their promotions page to see if there is the chance to receive any more free bets. Our main advice though is to always read the terms and conditions of any promotion.

How best to use a free bet?

Now let’s look at other areas aside from abiding by terms and conditions. When you receive a free bet, don’t just use it on the next sporting event. Don’t waste a free bet in this way. A free bet that doesn’t produce a return isn’t that useful is it? 

Instead, take some time to find events where you have a very good chance to get a return. Remember, there are 30 days to use the free bets received, so take your time, do some research, and place a bet that will be profitable.
