A Guide to Betfair Bonuses

Betfair is a name synonymous with betting, but in addition to offering one of the largest online betting exchanges, they also offer a state of the art online casino which is attracting players from across the globe.

Betfair Casino offers an unrivalled casino games portfolio with popular titles from a variety of software providers including Playtech, Ash Gaming, WMS Gaming, OpenBet and International Game Technology which means that you’ll have access to the best games on the web under one roof.

Even more impressive though, are Betfair’s bonus offerings. Talk about being spoilt for choice…new players are offered a choice of three welcome bonuses entitled games, slots and live casinos. These break down as follows:

Option 1: Games – 200% up to £300

Betfair Bonus - All Games

When selecting this bonus you will receive a 200% match bonus up to £300 to use when you play a huge variety of casino games. This bonus is definitely great for both slots and table games players alike, as a number of qualifying games of each genre are included, although, as is the case with most other online casinos, each category of games contribution to the overall wagering requirement is weighted differently. Slots, scratch cards and Fixed Odds Games still carry the most weight with table games carrying less weight in your overall contributions.

To qualify for this bonus all you have to do is “buy-in” by making a minimum deposit of £10 or more. Before you can withdraw any winnings you will be required to wager the sum of the multiplier of the bonus 37 times.

So, for example if you make a deposit of £100 you will receive a £200 bonus (200% of your deposit) and you will then have to wager £200 x 37 times = £7400.

Option 2: Slots – Match Bonus up to £2000

Betfair Bonus - Slots

With Betfair’s Slots bonus you will receive a match deposit bonus up to £2000 to play on any of Betfair’s exciting slots. The £2000 bonus can be claimed over 3 deposits as follows:

  • 1st match-up – 125% match up to £500 (minimum buy-in: £10)
  • 2nd match-up – 175% match up to £700 (minimum buy-in: £50)
  • 3rd match-up – 200% match up to £800 (minimum buy-in: £100)

Once you have made your first deposit you will receive your bonus and once the wagering requirements are met you will be eligible to receive the next bonus in line.

Wagering requirements on this bonus are 40 times the sum of the multiplier of the bonus. For example, on bonus one, when depositing an amount of £100 you will receive a £125 bonus and will then need to wager £125 x 40 = £5000 in total before you may cash out.

Option 3: Live Casino – 100% Match up to £200

Betfair Live Dealer Bonus

If you’re a Live Dealer Casino Games fan then this bonus if for you. Deposit £20 or more and you will receive a welcome match bonus of 100% which you can use to play Live Blackjack or Live Roulette.

When it comes to wagering requirements, each game is weighted differently with Live Roulette contributing 100% and Live Blackjack 50%. You are required to wager your bonus amount 60 times within 7 days of receiving the bonus before you can withdraw your winnings.

In addition to the above welcome bonuses, Betfair also offers new players the following:
