Sportsbook: What happens if I enter a stake for the bet that is less or more than the free bet amount?

The information below is specific to any customer who has registered from the UK or Ireland. If you are viewing this page having registered from another country, please click here for Sports Bonus help.

 

 

  • If your stake is less than the free bet:
    The free bet can only be used on one bet. The stake you entered will be used as the stake for the bet. The full free bet amount above your stake will be forfeited.

  • If your stake is more than the free bet:
    The free bet will be used in full and the remaining stake will be paid from your balance in your main wallet. You will need to have sufficient funds in your balance to cover the difference otherwise you will be unable to place the bet.
