There’s one thing better than winning money on a bet and that is winning money when you don’t need to place a bet!

A number of bookmakers now offer prediction and sports-related games which are 100% free to play but give you the chance to win huge cash prizes.

Bookmakers offer these games as a way to entice you to their site with the hope you will place a real-money bet with them but although you will need to have an account with these bookmakers, there is no requirement to wager your own money. However, we recommend taking advantage of the free bets and bonuses available to new customers when you register at these bookmakers. Sites such as Betbuddy have a huge list of bookmaker welcome offers which can be excellent value. Some of these offers must be claimed within a certain period of opening your account and so they are worth claiming when registering.

We’ll be taking a look at a small selection of the most popular free to play games which are available to customers now.

Sky Bet – Super 6

Every week, customers of Skybet can participate in their free-to-play game and be in with the chance of winnings up to £2 million!

How it works: You can enter online via the Super6 website or via the app and need to predict the score of six football matches which Skybet announce each week. The standard price pool for predicting all six scores correctly is £250,000 but if 2 million users enter Super 6 on any given week, the prize pool is increased to a whopping £2 million. There have been several winners over the years which Super6 has been running with some of the awarded prizes in the millions of pounds.

Grosvenor Casinos – Grosvenor Goals

Similar to Super 6, Grosvenor Goals is a weekly free-to-play game any participants can win up to a cool £1 million. Each week, Grosvenor will announce 10 football matches and all you have to do is pick one player from each match which you think will score the first goal. There are three different prizes you can win depending on when your players score and how many of them do so.

  • £1 million – All 10 of your players score the first goal
  • £10,000 – All 10 of your players score at any time in their matches
  • £10 Free Bet – 3 or more of your players score the first goal in their matches

Betway – 4 To Score

Betway’s 4 To Score game is similar to Grosvenor Goals in that you need to predict the first goalscorer in the selected football matches. Betway make the game slightly easier than Grosvenor in that there are only 4 matches to pick the first goalscorer for. If you correctly predict all 4 first goalscorers, you will win a share of the £25,000 pot. The pot is divided by the number of players who make 4 correct predictions.
