It is the Epsom Derby (4pm, Saturday, June 7) and we are hoping to take advantage of the bookies’ Derby free bets, offers and bonuses. It is a great time for the bookmakers to recruit new punters and they are not averse to the odd bribe in the form of some tempting promotions.
We intend to detail these specials on this page as they are released. So keep an eye on this post because it will be updated whenever a bookie announces a new deal to tempt you.
- BetVictor have kicked it off with a great one. They are giving you a free bet if red-hot favourite Dawn Approach wins The Derby and your bet (ie: on any other horse) loses.
It means that if you do fancy something other than Jim Bolger’s unbeaten 2000 Guineas winner then BetVictor is probably the place to back it. Especially if you are not planning to bet any more than fifty quid, because that is the limit of their generosity with this appealing bonus.
So If Dawn Approach, heading for odds-on in the Derby odds, lands the race then they will refund your net losses in the form of free bets up to £50. That includes all single bets, whether they are win bets or you went each-way. Obviously it does not include multiple bets.
You need to use that Promo Cash wager within 30 days and they ask that you give them a day to process this and get these funds into your betting account. We have read through the terms of this offer and it looks pretty good. We can’t find anything that effectively negates its attraction. However do take a look at the terms and conditions on their website too. Click here to claim this offer.
- Ladbrokes have now followed suit and rolled out a very similar promotion, giving money back on your first Derby bet with them if hotpot Dawn Approach wins. With their version of this promo you can claim back up to £/€25 of your losses. It only applies to win bets or the win part of an each-way bet. They too promise the freebie within 24 hours of the race and you have seven days to use it. Claim this offer here.
Remember, if there are any more worthwhile offers or free bets on The Derby then we will be sure to add them to this page, so do keep checking back.
