Snooker Free Bets
Snooker may have hit dizzy heights in the 1980’s and it has arguably seen its popularity diminish since the early 1990’s but interest in the sport as a betting medium has grown apace in recent years. It is now one of the most popular in-play sports plus it is growing rapidly in the gambling-mad Far East.
With Eastern money floating around online bookmakers are turning over some serious sums on snooker and that means there is little problem getting big wagers on (or small wagers on big priced selections placed).
It’s ideal as an in-play betting sport with frames rarely lasting over 30 minutes and prices change every time a player takes a shot. Little wonder online sportsbooks use snooker free bet offers to entice punters to put their money on the line.
Snooker Free Bets – Follow-through a Winning Bet
Free snooker bets are not always commonplace but snooker free bet offers certainly surface during the main snooker season and it is not difficult to find them during major televised tournaments, such as the Triple Crown events: The Betfred World Championships, UK Championship and the Masters.
Like any free bet, snooker free bets will have their stakes removed when calculating your returns/winnings. But, as free bet offers come with no prospect of losing your hard earned cash, you cannot really complain.
Snooker free bets are in no way different to bets placed with cash from your online sportsbook balance, they are placed in the same way and winnings are calculated in the very same way. Furthermore, winnings are withdrawable immediately.
Popular Snooker Free Bets
A lot of snooker free bet offers involve a headline. When new customers can get both a price boost and a free bet, online sportsbooks know it will attract new business. Let’s face it, who would be excited about getting a free bet on a 200/1 no-hoper?
But snooker free bets are not restricted to these one-off betting offers. As part of a new customer offer, with reload bonuses or loyalty bonuses you can often place a free bet on snooker.
Naturally it depends on your bet preferences but you can use your free snooker bet on a number of markets ranging from ‘winner of the next frame’ (if betting in-play) to ‘match winner’. But as a snooker free bet is something from nothing we would be more inclined to place it on an ‘outright tournament winner’ market meaning you could reap some serious returns on a long-priced ante-post selection.
How to claim Snooker Free Bets
For many the first snooker free bet they will get will come courtesy of opening a new online betting account with one of the major and trustworthy online sportsbooks. It’s a standard and simple process: Open a new account, place a wager and when that bet is settled your new account with be credited with a free snooker bet or, in some cases, several free snooker bets which you can place on matches within a snooker competition.
Snooker, a betting medium which gives-away more free bets than most sports, also features considerably more special offers than you will find in tennis and table tennis – other ‘mano a mano’ sports.
Snooker ‘money back’ and ‘free bet’ specials’ are often given to customers for small but unlikely incidentals such a player losing on the final black or if your opponent makes a 147 break.
Ultimately most, if not all online bookmakers, provide snooker bet free bet offers as standard. The World Championship is a real feast so look out for ad hoc bonus free bet offers being applied to your accounts around that tournaments start – traditionally in late April.
Snooker Free Bets No Deposit
As snooker continues to grow as a betting sport online bookmakers are seemingly determined to get new snooker bettors enlisted on to their books and they know the best ways to attract fans of any sports is to offer ‘No Deposit Free Bets’ promotions on major games and competitions.
A lot of these promotions do not give you a free snooker bet following your first deposit/bet, they actually give you a free bet for simply registering a new account without the need to deposit or bet beforehand.
If you go this route – as opposed to the more traditional deposit, bet and then get a free bet matched for your initial stakes – you may as well shoot for the sky and try to identify a big priced winning outcome. Let us not forget Stuart Bingham was 100/1 when winning the 2015 World Championship.
In Snooker the biggest prices are normally found in the ‘correct score’ markets which could easily see a £10 free bet rewarded with winnings in excess of £150. Failing that, there is always the good old-fashioned multi-selection accumulator which could similarly boost your winnings to give a handsome reward.
