The main reason for looking at bookmaker websites or apps will always be with the intention of having a bet on football, horse racing, or any other traditional betting sport, but there are some options which don’t need any money to be wagered in order to take part. Free-to-play games are a reason for customers to return to bookie sites and apps on a regular basis, and they’re hard to dismiss when you don’t lose anything from taking part.
Several different free-to-play betting games have grown in popularity among football punters, with SkyBet Super 6, BetVictor Golden Goal and PaddyPower Hotshot Jackpot being some of the better-known versions. Another edition of this includes the football brain teasers that can be found on FootyAccumulators’ quizzes page, which provides another reason to visit their site aside from their daily football betting tips and predictions.
Examples of bookmaker games include:
Surely the most popular of free-to-play games, Soccer Saturday Super 6 offers the chance to scoop a jackpot of up to £1 million. All you need to do in order to come away with that whopping cash prize is correctly predict the final scores of six selected football fixtures. These could be games from the Premier League, Championship, FA Cup and even some international or European matches, with the only difficult part being guessing every final scoreline, as you will fail to win even if you’re off by a single goal.
BetVictor Golden Goal
If you’ve ever bet on a Scorecast market, you’ll find BetVictor Golden Goal to be easy to understand. With another massive cash prize up for grabs, Golden Goal is a feature where, to be crowned a winner, you need to identify the minute of the first goal, the scorer of that goal and the final scoreline at the ninety-minute mark in a specific football match. This arguably takes more doing than Super 6 but then you’ll have more of a chance with only needing to guess the outcome of one game.
It feels like everyone indulges in fantasy football these days and it makes a lot of sense why when you consider how easy it is to build your perfect team. Despite it originally being intended for American football, it’s taken the UK by storm. Betting on the Premier League is always massively entertaining but there’s also a lot of fun to be had for free, with Fantasy Football offering weekly, monthly and seasonal prizes if you can get enough points from the players you choose.
Paddy Power Hotshot Jackpot
One of the ultimate football brain teasers comes from Paddy Power, who are known for a novelty bet but have taken it up a notch with Hotshot Jackpot. It can be practically impossible to correctly predict a first goalscorer in any game, so Paddy Power have created a game where you need to predict every first goalscorer in six selected games. It might be unlikely to come out on top but if you manage to get every single one correct, you could receive some massive winnings in cash, so it’s worth a go, especially for free.
