Free bets give punters a chance to place a bet without any stake being laid down. Online gambling sites in Ghana tend to use a free bet as a promotional marketing tool, to help entice new customers or as rewards for existing customers who meet specific criteria.
In Ghana, local gambling sites are quickly coming to the free bet party with a number of websites offering it as a sweetener for new registrations.
If you search for Betfair Ghana on Google, you will find that the company offers up to £100 in free bets to all new punters written in their description. One of the reasons why they can afford such high stakes is because the company merged with the biggest Irish bookmaker – Paddy Power – in 2016 and is now called Paddy Power Betfair.
Other Ghanaian websites tend to offer free bets of a smaller value. Safaribet Ghana, Betyetu and Premier Bet all provide a first free bet of up to GHS 200 to all newly registered punters.
Betway Ghana does things a little differently. Instead of offering the new punter a freebet, they give existing punters a free bet every time they invite a friend on the gambling platform. Not only does the new referee haver to successfully have to complete their registration but they must also make a deposit. The free bet in this case is at an amount of 100 GHS.
