The World Cup free bets offers are really hotting up as Bet365, Paddy Power, Ladbrokes & William Hill all release new offers new bookmaker offers in time for Brazil 2014.
With well over £1bn expected to be wagered during the month long footballing extravaganza in Brazil, there’s plenty of business to be done, not only in the betting shops of the UK but online as bookmakers jostle for their share of the World Cup pie.
Its during this time that bookmakers attempt to diversify and offer punters something different, which sets them apart from the normal and as a result, its possible for punters to pick up a wide variety of attractive free bets offers or money back specials along the way.
Paddy Power, who are well known for their advertising stunts have been first to push their offer of enhanced prices on the the top four in the betting.
The popular Dublin based unit has enhanced the price of tournament favourites Brazil to win the tournament from 3/1 to 8/1, Argentina have been enhanced to 12/1 from 4/1, Germany enhanced to 14/1, while Spain can be backed at 16/1 through Paddy Power’s offer.
The firm reports that their offer has already proven popular with punters, with plenty seeing home advantage critical to Brazil’s chances of success and the 8/1 in particular looks to be the pick of the enhanced prices.
Bet365 are also pushing their own offer, with the Stoke based brand offering a very attractive £200 in free bets to new customers, one of the more competitive offers on the market today.
Not only that, the firm are refunding match bets should your selection finish 0-0 at full time. This ‘Bore Draw’ special is expected to prove a popular incentive, with some games looking set for the draw, with goals at a premium (England v Italy take note).
Another famous UK brand Ladbrokes, also offer a very handsome free bet incentive for new customers, up to £100 free to spend on any World Cup market, be that match or outright winner.
Not only that, the firm has announced another gimmick to their World Cup betting, by bringing in the World Cup top goalscorer market to their money back offer.
If Neymar, Messi, Ronaldo or Suarez are top goalscorer at the end of the tournament, they will refund losing outright winner bets.
Not to be outdone, William Hill have quickly responded to their competitors making significant incentives by offering their Bet £10 Get £20 offer, whereby punters have to bet only £10 to pick up £20 worth of free bets.
Its certainly set to be a busy time, both on and especially off the pitch, as armchair punters can now take advantage of new technology, which seems to be coming to the fore at this year’s World Cup in particular.
With bets being able to be placed via desktop, mobile and tablet devices, placing a bet has never been easier, and bookmakers have been quick to embrace all the available technology available to them.
The 2014 World Cup is set to be a feast of football, and its sure to be a successful month, not just for the outright winner of the tournament but for the top UK bookmaker brands.
May the best side win!
