How to Get a Welcome Bonus

New customers can take advantage of a number of free bets, here are a selection of the most popular free bets available from bookmakers.

Matched Free Bets – One of the most popular free bets offered by bookmakers to new customers. This free bet means that the bookmaker will match the amount you place on your first bet in the way of a free bet. On rare occasions, some bookmakers go beyond matching your bet and may even offer you better incentives.

Bet Refunds – Once you have placed a bet with your own money, you can have your money returned if you lose. The returned money can sometimes be re-credited in cash but most common is to have the money re-credited as bonus funds.

Stake Returned – Generally offered as a sign-up promotion for new customers, Stake Returned (sometimes called ‘Free Money’ or ‘Bonus Balance’) involves a bookmaker adding extra money to your balance after you first make a deposit.

Enhanced Odds – Usually based around a big sporting event, bookmakers will often enhance the odds on a fancied outcome to tempting prices in order to encourage new customers to sign-up and take advantage of the enhanced odds. These bets often come with a maximum amount you can bet and sometimes the money you win is paid out as free bets rather than cash.

No Deposit Free Bets – A rare type of free bet because they don’t always require a deposit. These types of free bet are perfect in allowing a customer to test out a new bookmaker and – as the name suggests – means a bettor doesn’t need to make a deposit before placing their first bet.

Offers for Existing Customers

Incentives don’t stop as soon as you’ve signed up! To reward your loyalty, bookmakers offer a range of offers to existing customers and here are a few of the most popular.

Money-back Specials – If you lose your stake then your bet will be refunded to you, most probably in the way of funds rather than cash. Money-back specials are perhaps the most popular free bets offered by bookmakers as they are risk-free.

Acca Insurance – Accumulators are extremely popular types of bets amongst sports fans, when you bundle a number of bets together for bigger odds. However, due to more outcomes needing to happen for your bet to win, bookmakers offer insurance in the form of a percentage of your stake back if your acca loses.

Loyalty Bets – For consistent betting with a bookmaker, that bookmaker may offer incentives in the form of free bets or enhanced odds simply to keep your business.

Cricket Betting Markets

On Cricket Bet India you will find full coverage of all the different betting opportunities from the world’s biggest bookmakers, all in one place.

Covering the Indian Premier League, Big Bash League, Pakistan Super League, World Test Championship, One-Day International World Cup, T20 World Cup and The Ashes and more.

You can bet on what are known as ‘outright’ results, such as winners/losers, highest run-scorers or wicket-takers, or more niche markets focused within individual matches.

Here are some of the most popular betting opportunities:


Outright winner

This type of bet is applied to tournaments, such as the IPL, BBL or Cricket World Cup. With this bet you select a team to be the winner of the tournament, not just a single match.

Series Winner

Similar to ‘outright winner’, this bet is applied to an entire series, such as The Ashes or another series between international teams. Here, you select the overall series winner, rather than the winner of just one match in the series.

Group Winner

You don’t just have to bet on who will win a tournament outright! In tournaments such as the T20 World Cup, you can bet on who will win a particular group ahead of the knockout phase.

Top Batsman or Wicket-Taker

This bet can apply to a single match or to an entire tournament or series. In a single match, you can bet on which player you think will be the top batsman or wicket-taker in the match, therefore, which player will score the most runs or take the most wickets. Over a tournament or series, you can bet on who will score the most runs or take the most wickets throughout the entire tournament or series.

Team of Top Batsman or Wicket-Taker

Instead of selecting an individual player to be top run scorer or wicket-taker, you can select the team you think will have the top run scorer or wicket-taker.

Match Betting

Whereas ‘outright winner’ or ‘series winner’ is a long-term bet that applies to a whole tournament or series, match betting applies to one single match where you select which team will win or whether the match will end in a tie or a draw.

To Win the Toss

This is a 50-50 shot! Before a match, captains toss a coin to decide who will bat first or bowl first. Betting on who wins the toss is literally betting on who will call correctly.

Toss Combination

This bet adds an extra element to the bet on who will win the toss. Here you can lengthen the odds of your selection by adding what decision the winning captain will make when they win the toss. For example, ‘India to win the toss and bat first’ or ‘England to win the toss and bowl first’.

Over/Under Scores

The bookmaker will provide selections on to what score a batting team will get and here you can bet on whether you think the team will score over or under that total.

First Innings Scores

Here you are betting on whether the first innings score will be odd or even. The odds for these types of bet are usually around 10/11 because they are 50/50.

Team Innings Runs

The objective is to correctly predict the number of runs a team will score in a given innings. This is often an over/under bet.

Highest Partnership

Here you are betting on which team you think will have the highest partnership in a particular match.

Player of the Match

A popular bet where you select an individual player to win the Player of the Match award for the most influential performance in any given game.

Century To Be Scored in the Match

Will a player from either team score 100 runs in the match? Odds for this bet are higher in the shorter formats such as a T20 or 50-over match, but will be shorter for a Test match where players have more time to score runs. You can also bet on individual players to score a century or a 50 in the match.

Most Match Sixes or Fours

This is simply a bet on which team will score the most boundaries in the match.

Total Match Sixes or Fours

Instead of betting on an individual side to score more boundaries than the other, this selection is the combined number of sixes or fours across both teams. Selections are often listed as over/under and can be listed for individual teams or players.

Most Run Outs

Simply to identify which team will have the most run outs during the match.

Match Bet

This bet pits two players on opposing teams against each other in terms of which player will score the most runs or take the most wickets. For example, Virat Kohli v Joe Root, which player will score the most runs in the match?

Best ‘In-Play’ Betting Opportunities

As well as betting prior to the match there are also plenty of in-play cricket betting opportunities, including runs off the next ball, method of next dismissal and over/under batsman runs.
