McBookie will be offering a €25 free bet to all those who open an account and deposit using one of the payment methods except for Moneybookers and Neteller. This is not the first time that electronic wallets have been excluded from various promotions, as they are considered to be a liability for the security of these campaigns. Another thing to keep in mind is that only Scottish residents qualify for this promotion, with the local bookie targeting those who live in Scotland.

In order to qualify for the free bet, players need to use it within 30 days after opening a real money account and wager on odds exceeding even value. The exception to the rule is that those players who are willing to add four or more events on the same betting slip, will have the minimum odds requirement waived. At least in theory, it is possible to add four minimal risk event and greatly reduce the risks, but since you only get to keep the profits, this decision would more or less defeat the purpose of the free bet.

[Updated June, 19, 2020] Important announcement: This promotion is no longer available. Please check out the best welcome bonus offers from Gambling Judge:

✅ Money Back up to €25 from Unibet

✅ Freebet up to 100 mBTC from Fortune Jack

✅ €10 Free Bet from Sportingbet

Use the bonus to broaden your horizon

The free bets are supposed to be awarded immediately after the players open the real money account, but in case of exceptional circumstances, it can take up to 48 hours. To those who choose to bet in Euro or Dollars the bonus will be awarded in currency equivalent, but the rest of the terms and conditions apply. Players who wager more than €25 will still receive the same bonus amount, but the wagering requirements only apply to the free bet.

Any profits resulting from using it can only be cashed out after playing the combined amount through four times so those who apply for the maximum bonus need to bet €100 or more. The first promo cash Wager won’t have any effect when it comes to meeting the wagering requirements, so you need to subtract that from the grand total. Furthermore, the free bet is limited to the sports book section, so players should refrain from transferring the money to the casino or live casino areas.

The resulting profits can be used to explore the poker and casino games, but only after the bonus has been cleared and the free bet is converted into cashable amount. Each player is only eligible for one bonus, with those opening several accounts in an attempt of collecting more free bets being susceptible of having the accounts blocked and funds frozen.
