William Hill – Bet For Free
For customers already signed up with William Hill, free bets can be won on an ongoing basis across the top sports betting markets.
Few bookmakers can rival Will Hill when it comes to football betting offers. If you prefer a punt on the nags you won’t be disappointed either.
If you haven’t yet joined, William Hill’s sign up bonus is a great offer for new customers and a bookmaker account that every UK punter should have.
Imagine the scene: you’ve got your money on your team to win 1-0 but the game finishes 0-0. Or you back your favourite player to score the opener and instead he scores the second.
At least if those bets were placed with William Hill you would be refunded your betting stake to have another go.
- Goal scorer 2nd chance – money back if your 1st goal scorer bet scores 2nd instead
- Bore Draw – refund if your correct score punt loses but the game finishes nil nil
- Acca Insurance – stake refunded if 1 team lets your accumulator down
You can place these bets on your PC, laptop or mobile phone. Make sure to check the terms and conditions. At the time of writing:
- The refund for each of the above offers is in the form of a bet token (stake not returned)
- Maximum refund of £50
Another bolt-on to William Hill’s offers is the ability to cash out your bet while the game is in-play (at the odds available at that time).
So if you have backed a team to win and they are a goal up – but you don’t think they are going to see it out – you can cash out your bet and lock-in a profit.
Of course it works both ways. If your bet does go on to win, the cash out value will be less than what you would have been paid. But if your bet does go on to lose you’ve won anyway!
The 2 big horse racing offers with William Hill are:
- BOG – Best odds guaranteed
- 2nd place refunds
Best Odds Guaranteed
Best odds guaranteed comes into play if you back and horse and it wins its race. If the SP odds end up higher than the odds you took – William Hill will pay you out at those odds, rather than the lower odds you accepted on your betting slip! For example:
- You back a horse to win at 5/1, 2 hours before the race starts
- By the time the race starts the odds on your horse have drifted out to 10/1
- Your horse romps home in 1st place
- If you had bet £20 to win you would have been expecting to win £100
- Thanks to BOG you actually pocket £200
Refund if Your Horse Finishes 2nd
This offer is not listed on the standard promotions page so isn’t as well known as the other offers listed on this page.
It is only available when betting on a mobile on selected Channel Four racing (typically Saturdays but can also be available on weekdays during big meetings).
The mobile site will advertise when this offer is available.
If you back a horse to win (also the win part of an each way bet is covered) and it finishes 2nd, good old William Hill will refund your money to have another go.
The maximum refund is currently £25 and its worth double checking the terms of the offer.
