Improve The Odds With Free Bets

Nov 16, 2007
You want to play. You want to gamble. But you don't want to shell out any of your hard-earned cash. In short, you want to bet for free. But there's no such thing as free bets. Or is there?

Definitely Not an Urban Legend

Generally, gambling works by betting - literally putting money - on a hand or a number, and if you're lucky enough to win, you can double, or even triple your money.

When you really think about it, you won't get anything if you bet for free. After all, double or triple zero is still zero. But you've heard of free bets and you know they exist. So how do free bets work exactly? Or more accurately, how do you get free bets to work for you?

The Thing About Free Bets

Free bets are often rewards and promotional extras. You are often given free bets if you purchase a product or sign up for something.

In casinos, you are often offered free bets if you purchase tickets to watch shows or spend a particular amount of money in the souvenir shop or restaurant. You can then use your free bets to try your luck at designated tables, often the ones that are not particularly frequented by patrons. Sometimes you might be required to make a real bet before you can use your free bets.

Online, free bets pretty much work the same way. Many gambling sites are offering free bets as incentive for signing up and paying the membership fee. Others give you free bets after you've spent a particular amount of money on real bets. These free bets appear as credits in your account, which you can use whenever you play. As a general rule, however, free bets can only be used as bets and cannot be converted to cash. Also, most free bets have to be used within a specific period of time, or else they will be rendered useless.

The Best Things in Life are Free

Of course, in a realistic sense, free bets are not just handed out to you for no reason. As is true in every business enterprise, casinos and online gambling sites are not likely to hand out free bets if they don't gain anything from them.

Still, for the wise gambler, free bets make a lot of difference. After all, when playing poker, or blackjack, or any other game, free bets still count as real bets, meaning you can still win from it, potentially doubling or tripling the money you spent to get the free bets in the first place.

As the name suggests, free bets are exactly that - freebies. It's no different from getting a gift voucher on your next purchase after ordering a DVD or a smoothie maker. Use them wisely to make the most out of your online gambling experience. You simply have to remember that as soon as those free bets are credited to your account, you can get them to work - and win - for you.
