Bet365’s dwindling free bet offers

Posted on by C Adey

Bet365 used to be the place to go for an existing customer free bet offer.

Bet up to £50 in play in top games – normally Champions League ties featuring English sides – and they would match it with a free in play bet.

You had to stump up the money in the first place, and they would refund it if it lost, but it was still a decent deal.

Some punters might have matched the bet to get the best bang for their buck, but not me (ahem), I would pick a relatively safe opening bet and pick a riskier, and more lucrative in play bet.

Unfortunately those halcyon days are gone now.

This season the offer was, in my case, reduced down to an up to £10 matched bet.

My mate was only offered a fiver.

The last game where the offer applied, the same fate has fell upon me, and I am now stuck on a fiver.

I went to Twitter to complain and one punter had a £25 offer reduced to a tenner this season, so perhaps it’s not all doom and gloom and there are still some with the £50 offer available to them.

Any existing customer offer is a good thing, but it’s just a shame that it’s no longer as good as it used to me.
