How To Place Your Free Bet

How do I play my free bet?
  1.  If you have a Free Bet available, simply make your picks as usual in the Betway Sportsbook
  1. On your Bet Slip, you’ll be given the chance to select your Free Bet to apply to your bet (you do not have to use it on your next bet).
  1. You are able to use it to cover your entire bet or part of your wager amount.
  1. If you bet an amount lower than your Free Bet value, you will forfeit the remainder, e.g. if you have a $50 Free Bet and place a $40 bet, you will forfeit $10 of unused Free Bet.
  1. If you bet an amount higher than your Free Bet value, there needs to be sufficient cash balance in your account to cover the difference, e.g. if you have a $50 Free Bet and make a $60 wager, you need $10 cash balance to cover the bet. In this instance, two bets will be placed: one bet to the max value of your Free Bet and the other a cash bet using your cash balance to cover the remaining wager amount.
