It can be a real jungle out there when trying to find an online bookie that suits all your betting needs and offers all the markets and odds your expecting.
There are literally hundreds of bookies to choose from, all claiming to offer the best odds, the most extensive range of markets as well as best free bets that you can claim when joining.
Here at 'Free Bet Offers' we've tried to make it as easy as possible for you to decide which online bookies you want to claim free bets from - by checking all of them out ourselves and rating them on a number of key criteria and publishing our results online.
Bookies Rated and Reviewed
Hopefully our online bookie reviews section will help you decide which bookies are worth betting at and which aren't. We've also compared betting offers, sign-up bonuses and the regular free bet offers that bookies offer their members on a weekly or daily basis.
To enable you compare online bookies quickly and easily we've reviewed all of the bookies we feature under the same categories making it straightforward and simple for our visitors to find out who the best bookies that you can join actually are.
The first thing you'll find on each of our review pages is an overview of the online bookie itself, this includes their website's navigation and the ease at which you're able to find and place bets.
If an online bookie offers members good market range but they're impossible to find, or if their website takes ages to load then they won't be awarded a high bookie rating.
We consider the whole package including whether the bookie offers a loyalty program, the betting offers and bonuses they offer as well as odds competitiveness and market variety are also taken into account.
An online bookies reputation also plays an important role as we don't see much point in letting our visitors get ripped off by less reputable bookies.
Most punters want to be able to claim their free bet and start betting as quickly as possible. Nobody wants to spend half an hour filling in online forms so our bookie ratings take into account the speed in which you're able to register and start betting.
Online bookie rank highly if this is usually within a few minutes and with as little complications as possible. All of the withdrawal options that bookies offer are also taken into consideration as nobody wants to have to spend weeks waiting for their winnings to come flooding back in!
When it comes to finding an online bookie offering great odds across the board it can be a massive challenge. If you're anything like the majority of the 'Free Bet Offers' team, you'll need accounts with 4 or 5 online bookies to get the best odds for all your sports bets.
Very few online bookies offer amazing odds across all sports as some focus on specific sports betting markets such as football or horse racing.
We've looked what an online bookie offers in terms of odds right across the board including odds for UK, US and International sports, their pre-match odds, live in-play odds as well as all of the different bets that each online bookie offers.
Naturally this will be a key area for most punters as we know that most of you have your favourite sports betting markets to bet on just like us. We've looked at the depth and range of an online bookies markets and bookies rate highly if they offer excellent variety.
We've also placed extra importance on bookies that offer more obscure markets, interesting novelty bets (PaddyPower we mean you) as well as markets that other bookies wouldn't touch with a barge pole! Another key area for us was how quickly bookies react to change.
We value website design quite highly here at 'Free Bet Offers' and believe in providing our visitors with an informative and easily navigated website. We therefore pay particular attention to online bookies website and evaluate it from both an aesthetic and a functional point of view.
We look at the layout, live in-play betting options, the bet selection process including betting slips, odds display, free bets and promotions and additional functionalities such as live streaming, stats sections, news sections and and managing your account.
Basically we review online bookies from a users point of view ranking them highly if users are able to find everything they need and place their bets quickly and easily and without any hassle.
In the real world we're all a little wary of online transactions and here at 'Free Bet Offers' we feel the same way when it comes to handing over our banking or credit card details.
Even though online bookies have started to offer third party payment options, we still only feature online bookies that use the strictest secure transaction measures possible.
Online bookies rate highly if they're utilising the same technology that leading financial institutions and military bodies use. We only recommend betting at bookies that have proven themselves to be safe and secure betting portals.
The last thing you want is a bad experience with an online bookies customer service department, especially if your free football bets' just won as it could very easily ruin the moment! This is where we decided to have some fun and really put them to the test.
In order to really challenge bookies we came up with some of the most complicated issues and awkward questions that you could imagine and threw them at each of their customer service departments to see how they'd handle issues.
Online bookies rate highly in this department if they're staff are knowledgeable, courteous and provide acceptable answers in relatively decent time frames.
Our aim is to make your online betting experience one to remember and make life as easy as possible for you. We hope the information provided in our bookie reviews helps you along the road to many successful free bets and online betting experiences!
