2014 Durban July - The best free bet offers

What are the best free bet offers on the 2013 Greyville Durban July meeting? (Getty)
The 2014 Durban July meeting once again looks set to be a cracker and the race is on off the track to attract your bets.

Bookmakers are going all out to attract your cash on the big betting extravaganza and that's great news for our readers.

It's one thing backing a winner or two on the day but if you can bet for free without risking your own money, so much the better!

With that very much in mind, we've scoured the net to find the best free bet offers going and below are the best three out there in our expert opinion - get stuck in!


Register with the boys at Sportingbet in time for the big Greyville race and you could be betting on the action “risk free.” That's because the firm will refund your first qualifying bet with them if it's a loser, up to a maximum of R1500. 

Here's how it works:

  1. Go to Sportingbet and register 
  2. Place your first qualifying bet (this has to be at odds of 1/ 2 or bigger)
  3. If your bet wins, pat yourself on your back and enjoy spending your winnings!
  4. If it loses, you will get your stake back (up to R1500) as a free bet so you can try again!

Heads-Up - In addition to the above, you can also win a cool R1 million for predicting the first eight home in the Durban July. That's a big ask admittedly but the closest prediction still picks up R10,000 and it's free to enter!


The guys at bet365 deliver a top quality horse racing product and their deposit bonus allows you to try it out for yourself with minimal risk. There's a whopping R2000 up for grabs if you play your cards right and you could do some serious damage with that when it comes to betting on the big race.

Here's how to get yours:

  1. Go to bet365 and register
  2. Deposit at least R100
  3. They will then match your deposit with a bonus up to a maximum of R2000

Friendly advice - You will need to play through your deposit and bonus three times before making a withdrawal, so it may be worth depositing less than the maximum deposit bonus of R2000.


William Hill need little introduction as one of the UK's top bookmakers and they've got plenty to offer South African punters, not least their R375 welcome bonus. 

Here's how to snag yours:

  1. Go to William Hill and register using the promo code F25 - important if you want the maximum bonus!
  2. Place a bet on any sport
  3. They will then match this up to a value of R375

Worth knowing - William Hill offer fixed prices on all South African horse racing, not just the Durban July, and you can listen to live commentaries via their radio service.

We have a great relationship with all three of the above bookmakers so do let us know if you encounter any problems, as we may well be able to help out.

Good luck with your July bets!
