The Best Free to Play Betting Games
Although bookmakers are predominantly there to offer betting opportunities, many of them also have free betting games which you can play. These have grown in popularity mainly thanks to the Super 6 prediction game from Sky, which features heavily on the football show Soccer Saturday on Sky Sports.
Many other bookmakers offer these games, and they are great fun for those who like predicting outcomes, with the chance of winning a prize. There is a sense of pride you get when doing well in these games, something similar to how players feel when doing well in fantasy football games.
If you are wanting to join in the fun, here are the best free to play betting games that are available with bookmakers right now.
William Hill Free or 4
This game from William Hill may be the best of the bunch, and offers players the chance to win free bets on a weekly basis, simply for predicting the number of goals in six football games. The games can be chosen by you, and what you have to do here is choose six games where you believe there will be three or four goals scored in the game.
If you get all six right, you will win £200 in free bets (given to you as 8 x £25 free bets). Those who get five right will receive a £5 free bet and those who get four right will receive a £1 free bet.
This game stands out because it is different to others on the market. You are not predicting the winner here, and you are also not limited to the six games chosen by William Hill. Instead, you are picking games where you think three or four goals will be scored, and you get to choose any six games from the match coupon.
The Ladbrokes 1-2-Free game is basically a smaller and easier game than the Skybet Super 6. Here you have to pick the correct score from three games which are selected by Ladbrokes. However, picking from three is much easier than the six you have to do with the Skybet game.
If you get one correct score, you will receive a £1 free bet, if you get two right you will receive a £5 free bet and if you are lucky enough to get all three right, you will receive £100 in cash in your Ladbrokes account.
Although the smaller two prizes are free bets, the main prize here is cash, if you are looking for a game with a cash reward rather than a free bet reward.
888 Up for 8
888Sport have their own free prediction game, and this is a big one that is not easy to win. Here you need to correctly predict the scores of eight games, chosen by them to make this even harder. This may seem a tough ask, but there is a part of this game which gives other rewards.
On your first two attempts at this game, you will receive a £1 free bet for every prediction you get right. So, if you get four right, you will get 4 x £1 free bets to spend. Those who bet regularly with 888Sport, and spend £25 or more per week on the site, will continue to qualify for these free bets after their second attempt.
This means that alongside the big jackpot prize, you also have the chance to earn yourself a few free bets each week you play, to give you something else to aim for.
Coral Correct 4
The final game to look at, and one that is setup completely different to the rest is the Coral Correct 4 game. If you are looking to add some fun to your betting games, this may be the one for you.
In this game, you have to answer four questions about the upcoming big game of the weekend, usually from the Premier League, or the FA Cup when it is a cup weekend. These games are usually about winning margins, scorers in the games, goals and much more.
The idea is to answer every question right, making a big prediction for the game. If you do this, and all four questions are answered correctly, you will win the top prize on the game which is £50 in cash directly into your Coral account.
The game also have other prizes, with a £2 free bet for guessing three out of four and a £1 free bet for guessing two out of four.
