Online betting is a very competitive marketplace. This is great news for you as a punter. It means better prices across the board and bookmakers trying to attract new business and retain existing business with regular offers and promotions. As football is the biggest sport for betting turnover there's always a wide array of offers available. Here are some types of offers which are currently available although these can change and its always important to fully read the T&C's.

  • ACCA refunds: Punters hate nothing more than when they build their ACCA and 1 team lets them down. Many bookmakers will give you a refund (usually as a stake not returned free bet) if 1 team lets you down. The refund is usually up to a certain maximum and their may be minimum odds for each team in the ACCA and a minimum number of selections but this offer can be quite valuable over the course of a season.
  • Event happens refunds: this will involve free bet refunds on losing bets up to a certain amount (usually £10, £25 or £50) on certain markets if something happens in the match. This can be a red card, if someone hits the crossbar, if a certain amount of goals are scored or a refund if you bet on a 0-0. Again these offers can be a great way of sometimes getting a second chance if your initial selection lets you down.
  • Loyalty free bets: not just specific to football bets but there is a trend now for bookmakers wishing to encourage loyalty after the initial sign up. This usually involves something like getting a weekly free bet if you have a certain number of bets at a certain level in the previous week. 
  • Bonus free bets: your carefully crafted selection has came good. Your happy but we bet your even happier when you get a bonus on top of your winnings? This is an offer we are seeing more of. For example, some bookmakers give you a free bet bonus as a percentage of your winnings if there are more than a certain amount of goals in a match or if your selected goalscorer goes on to score more goals in the game.


Bet on markets that interest you and that you enjoy. Sometimes you may want a shorter price for a bigger chance of a win and other times nothing other than a 33-1 ACCA will do. Don't be afraid to try new markets and new approaches and please contact us with any queries or suggestions.

In this part of the site we shall have a look at the different betting markets that are available in the most popular sports for betting in the UK. Many of these markets will be well known to you but with new and exciting betting markets being added by firms all the time its good to keep updated. In the coming weeks we shall also look at betting options in other areas which have grown massively in popularity in recent years such as politics and reality TV. Please keep checking back as we add more content.


The highest volume of bets in the UK are placed on football. The popularity of individual teams, the quality of the players, the level of TV coverage combined with punters enjoying having a flutter at the weekend for a bit of fun and interest means this is likely to remain the case. Check out any major game nowadays and you are likely to see a varied range of sometimes over 200 betting markets. Of course a straight 90 mins 1x2 bet will always be the most popular but why not try and seek out exciting opportunities in other markets? This is especially the case when perhaps the Match Odds market has a very short price favourite. 

  • To Win Both Halves: effectively splits each half into two separate matches. Will your selection win both halves of the game?
  • Match Result & BTTS: here you have to get match result and both teams have to score. A good angle for games where you fancy goals.
  • Match Result & Over/Under: again you pick the match result coupled with whether you believe there will be under or over a given amount of goals.
  • Handicaps: you get Asian and European. The principal here is the game is levelled up with longer odds being given a head start for betting purposes.
  • Goalscorer Markets: pick your favourite player to score first, last, anytime. If your confident back them to score 2+ or even to bag a hatrick.
  • Corner Markets: over/under, which team will get the most corners or corner handicaps where a game has a big favourite. 
  • Time Markets: will something happen in a given time period, what will happen first in a given time period. Great markets if you like excitement.
  • Card Markets: how many cards, who will get a card, will someone see red. Can be interesting to look at this in games where there are fierce rivalries
