How To Claim Your Free £5 SkyBet Club Weekly Free Bonus


The free £5 bet from Sky Bet Club is awarded to regular customers and it is activated in a similar manor to the welcome bonus.

Place at least £25 in bets at odds of 2.0 (evens) or above. The qualifying bets can be placed on any sports market. It doesn’t have to be a £25 bet, it can be any number of bets that eventually total to at least £25 – such as 5 x £5 bets or 25 x £1 bets.

Click the ‘Sky Bet Club’ button on the top left corner of the website. You’ll be able to see a progress graph – like the one shown in the image below – of how much more you need to stake in order to receive the weekly £5 free bet.

Horse Racing - Best Odds Guaranteed


When it comes to horse racing, Sky Bet have a great offer. Any price you take on a horse will be enhanced – if the starting price (SP) is higher than the odds that you placed.

It doesn’t apply to ante-post bets or enhanced multiples, or international horse racing events.

This applies to any horse race in the UK and Ireland, for singles, multiples and each way bets.

You don’t need to opt-in. The best odds guarantee is automatically processed once the bet is settled.

SkyBet Bet Tracker


Unlike other bookmkaers, when you view your open bets with Skybet, you’ll be able to see if your current selections are winning or not. The Sky Bet bet tracker shows red or green depending on the current score/situation of your chosen market – and allows you to see how much time is remaining.

It makes those decisions so much easier if you’re unsure about whether or not to cash out your accumulators on a Saturday afternoon!

SkyBet are one of the biggest bookmakers in the country, and their popularity stems from the huge brand of television and communication services. They’ve not been around as some of the other big brands that you’ll have seen on the high street, however the size of their existing operations have propelled them forward in the online sports betting world. Based in Leeds, they’ve been a big player in the online sports betting arena for quite some time. Their welcome offer, regular price boosts, enhanced multiples and free £5 a week earn them a five star rating from CompareTheBets

Skybet give away on average £2million worth of free bets a month and pay out over £2million in winnings from their price boosts, along with a further £1.5million+ from their best odds guarantee. An all-round excellent bookmaker, in our opinion.
