Here’s how to get a free bet for doing something you were probably going to do anyway

by Aidan Elder | May 31, 2013


Ah! The weekend! Those glorious days when you can savour being given out to by someone who thinks they know better than you from the comfort of your own house rather than in work. It should be great. We’ve got Derby Day at Epsom, the first match of the Lions Tour, the French Open, the final day of the La Liga season and Bayern Munich’s attempt to make it a treble. How are you going to spend the day?

What’s that you’re probably not saying? You’re going to enjoy Saturday’s sporting feast by placing at least five bets at odds of Evens or bigger between the hours of 10am and 10pm? Wow – that’s handy because the guy who does our special offers spent too long in the sun yesterday, got sunstroke and now he’s giving away a load of Free Bets to reward such behaviour.

Yes it’s madness, but it’s also worth taking advantage of. If you’re the type of person who likes a few flutters of a Saturday, then make it five and you’ll get a Free Bet to the value of your average stake (up to £/€10) as a ‘thank you’ from us. Getting a bonus payment for something you were already going to most likely do anyway? Why it’s almost like having a job in the Civil Service.

So to recap for the easily distracted or goldfish among us, the essentials are:

  • Place five bets at odds of Evens or higher
  • on any sport or event via or Paddy Power Mobile
  • Between 10am and 10pm on Saturday
  • We’ll give you a Free Bet
  • To the average stake of those five bets (up to £/€10)

See, bullet-points make everything easier to understand.

So if you’re reading this on Friday, be sure to come back between 10am and 10pm and place those five bets. If you’re reading this on Saturday between 10am and 10pm, get cracking. And if you’re reading this after 10pm on Saturday all we have to say is ‘did you do that bit of housework we asked you to do? No? So typical.’
