Overview of all Refer-a-friend bonuses, offered by Australian online bookmakers. We will explain you how to bet with your friends and earn free bets

With a wide range of free bets offers, money back specials and daily betting promotions, bookmakers compete strongly for the market-leading position in Australia. The intense competition benefits customers by providing them more opportunities and better services. If you’re a punter, then you will probably look out for the latest news and the best online bookies bonuses for you to claim.

Here, we present one of the most effective marketing strategies for betting platform to increase their client database, the betting referral programs. Currently, Betfair, Sportsbet, Unibet and Centrebet have set up a Refer a friend promotion. Basically, they ask you to work as their own sales and reward you for every new customer you bring.

Why this is good news for players? Because not only it’s an opportunity to get some free bets into your betting account but also it’s a good way to ensure online bookies will make their best effort to offer high quality services and some nice features. If they want new clients, they will have to keep existing customers happy…

Let’s see how to claim your Refer a friend bonus. First, send all your punting friends an invitation, using the Refer a friend form. It’s important to know that your friends must sign up by clicking through the link in the e-mail they receive. Otherwise, they will not be deemed as your referees. Depending on the bookmaker, you will be allowed to send from five emails (Sportsbet) to an unlimited number of invitations (Betfair). In all cases, we recommend you not to invite a member of your family (same last name) or someone who shares the same IP address. It could be considered as fraud. Also, your referees must register for the first time at the selected bookmaker.

The online betting bonuses depend on the bookmaker's terms and conditions. For every friend who opens an account at Betfair and wagers $100 at odds 1.50 or more, within 30 days of signing up, you will both receive $100 into your betting account. With the Sportsbet Refer a friend deal, you will receive a $100 free bet if your friend deposits a minimum of $50 within 30 days and starts betting. In this case, your referee will get an instant free bet up to $50, equal to 10% of the first deposit amount, and then a bonus bet up to $100, equal to the first stake amount. Unibet provides you with a $200 cash reward for every friend you bring, up to a maximum of $6.000 (30 invitations) and each referee will earn a bonus up to $300. Finally, Centrebet rewards you with a $50 bonus bet for each buddy that signs up. Please, be aware that due to legal restrictions, offers are generally not available for NSW, VIC, SA & WA residents.

General free bet terms and conditions apply to Refer a friend promotions. So, punters must comply with rollover requirements before to be allowed to withdraw the winnings accrued from the free bet. For example, Betfair requires turning over at least once the bonus amount, at odds 1.50 or bigger and Sportsbet makes you use the free bet in one go and also asks you to turn over the winnings once.
