These four free bookie competitions are a way to make loads of dough without any risk! What’s not to love?
There is a common pattern among bookmakers now to offer a free weekly competition in a bid to lure you on to their website or app. A great idea from them, but it also provides the punter with some good clean fun and a chance to win some big money without spending a penny.
This review has a look at the best four free bookie competitions that are available most weeks by simply downloading their app.
Free bookie competitions #1: BetVictor Golden Goal
Another free to enter weekly game from our mates over at BetVictor. If you don’t have a BetVictor account, you can download the app or sign-up to BetVictor here.
This is ranked second in our list of free bookie competitions for good reasons; it has a big cash prize and it is the easiest to get right! So much so, AccaDoo won it last season and came within minutes of winning it the following week.
BetVictor select a Premier League fixture from the weekend and ask you to correctly identify the minute of the first goal and the goal scorer. This is where our love of stats comes into play and we analyse the most likely minute to be scored, plus the form attacking players or penalty takers and take an educated punt.
The prize money for this last season was £25k and was divided if more than one person guessed it correctly. However, this season it has been upped to £75k but you have to guess the correct final score, which adds an extra layer of complexity. So to win the big jackpot, you need to guess the first goal scorer, the minute they will score and then the final score of the game.
A great feature of this game is they email you if your selected player isn’t in the starting line-up so you have time to replace him and they message straight away once the goal has been scored so you can see if you are in with a shot of winning the prize.
Free bookie competitions #2: PaddyPower Hotshot Jackpot
PaddyPower are slowly but surely becoming the banter kings with their adverts and social media presence. Well now they’ve got free bookie competitions to rival Super Six with their HotShot Jackpot running every week during the football season.
Download the app or sign-up here and then once you have an account, you are eligible to play without having to spend any money. Great news!
Each week you are tasked with the challenge of picking an ‘anytime goal scorer’ in eight different Premier League matches. They make it easy for you by listing the players in odds order of who is most likely to score in their opinion so you don’t have to trawl through a load of players.
Once you have selected your eight goal scorers, you then pick your tie-breaker minute for the first goal from just one of the games, which is what decides the winner should two or more people select the same winning eight scorers.
A great fun way to spend your Saturday morning picking your goal scorers. And the jackpot isn’t bad either…£250k to the winner.
Free bookie competitions #3: ITV Racing 7
Since ITV took over the reins from Channel 4, they have spent some money and got together with William Hill to create a fantastic free bookie competition to win £50k.
They give their punters the chance to guess the 7 winners from the races usually shown on a Saturday afternoon on ITV Racing. It is easiest if you sign up to William Hill here first and then login to the ITV Racing app with those details.
The ITV Racing app is easy to use; every time you select your prediction, the next race will automatically load. There’s a leaderboard to see how you compare to the rest of the punters, and most importantly, how you compare to your pals.
Free bookie competitions #4: Bet365 in-play with Ray
Every sports fan is probably familiar with Ray Winstone’s dulcet tones during a half-time ad break, well now you can win some money off him! Bet365 are running loads of cash competitions as part of their Twitter #InPlaywithRay campaign.
There’s two main rules to this free bookie competition; you must have a Bet365 account – sign up here – and you must be on Twitter.
To be in with a chance of winning, simply tweet your answer to the Bet365 tweet (keep your eyes peeled) using the #InPlaywithRay hash-tag. All correct entries will be added to the random £25 prize draw, which happen pretty much every live Premier League game on Sky Sports.
