Terms & Conditions
What is Refer and Earn?
The ‘Refer and Earn’ scheme (the “Scheme”) allows Betfair account holders to receive bonuses for referring their friends to Betfair.
Can I take part?
To refer customers under the Scheme you must be a current Betfair account holder.
To qualify for the bonuses and terms outlined below, both the Referring Customer and the Referred Customer must have accounts registered in the UK. Customers registered in other countries may not be eligible for bonuses under Betfair Refer and Earn, or the terms and values might be different to those set out here.
To be eligible for payment of a bonus the Referred Customer must be completely new to Betfair (not having previously held a Betfair account), have made a deposit to their account and have passed Betfair’s identity and age verification checks.
Who can I refer?
You can refer any number of friends but the maximum total bonus you can receive in any one calendar month is £200.
Please note that spamming and/or publication of your Refer and Earn code shall not be permitted, and doing either of these things will result in your disqualification from the Scheme and both you and your Referred Customers being ineligible for any benefits under the Scheme. The only exception to this is if you publish your Refer and Earn code on your personal social networking pages/feed. For the avoidance of doubt, this exception does not include publication on any ‘fan pages’ or pages/feed not controlled by you.
Your family, any persons at the same postal address as you, and you yourself cannot be Referred Customers. In this context ‘family’ means your spouse, partner, parent, child /sibling and any other persons with the same surname.
When will I be credited?
All rewards under this scheme are made in the form of credits to Betfair accounts. Rewards will be credited to your Betfair account within 72 hours of becoming due.
What do my friends need to do?
The Referrer will qualify for a bonus on the first of the following three events to occur.
The Referred Customer
- risks at least £50 in sports back bets at odds of at least 1.2 within 31 days of registration, earning you a £25 free bet. The Referred Customer will be eligible for a matched Sportsbook free bet of between £5 and £50 – terms apply;
- earns 1,000 Poker Player Points within 31 days of registration, earning you a £25 bonus. The Referred Customer will be eligible for 200% first deposit bonus – terms apply; or
- wagers £500 in the Casino* within 31 days of registration, earning you BOTH a £25 bonus.
Only one bonus will be payable.
* Wagering on Zero Lounge and French Roulette games is not included in this offer.
What else do my friends need to know about the qualifying sports bets?
The qualifying sports bets must be on either the Sportsbook and/or the Exchange, and must be back bets only.
Lay bets do not qualify in the Refer and Earn Scheme. If your friend places one or more lay bets which has the effect of reducing liability on their qualifying back bets, the bonus will not be paid either to you or to your friend.
What are the conditions which apply to the bonuses?
Bonuses are awarded as free bets, and must be wagered once on any available Betfair product before the funds can be withdrawn. This applies to both Referring and Referred Customers.
If we pay a bonus and the bonus funds are withdrawn before this wagering requirement is fulfilled, Betfair reserves the right to exclude participants from the Refer and Earn Scheme, to close customers’ accounts, and/or to withhold payment of any future bonuses.
What else do I need to know?
By Referring Customers under the Scheme both you and any Referred Customer agree to data regarding your betting activity being disclosed by Betfair to each other as appropriate, for the purpose of the Scheme only. You must notify any Referred Customers that data will be shared in this way before they open an account using your code.
Betfair reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to exclude you and any Referred Customer from the Scheme and from the Betfair website if it believes you have tried to benefit from the Scheme by using more than one username or are otherwise engaged in fraudulent or dishonest activities that indicate that referrals or bets are not made in good faith. In such instance, you shall not be entitled to participate in the Scheme and Betfair shall not be obliged to provide a reason to you for such exclusion.
Betfair may at any time suspend or void the Scheme for any reason that Betfair, in its absolute discretion, thinks appropriate and any liability from Betfair to you shall immediately cease upon Betfair notifying you of such action. In respect of any dispute, howsoever arising, Betfair's decision will be final.
This Scheme cannot be used in conjunction with any other Betfair promotion. Refer & Earn bonus offers are not valid in conjunction with any other offer. Any wagering you do to meet the requirements of other promotions will not count towards these offers.
