What snooker free bets are Available?
There is no doubt that there has been plenty more to enjoy from a betting point of view since Hearn became chairman of World Snooker as the number of tournaments in the calendar has rocketed. Along with the three traditional snooker major tournaments in Great Britain – World Championships, UK Championship and the Masters – there are a whole host of new major ranking events all over the globe with staggering prize money available in each.
The International Championship, one of many events now held in China, has a whopping winner’s fund of £125,000 whilst the recently introduced Players Tour Championship Grand Finals held in Galway, Ireland also offers a six figure sum for the victor.
Barely a week goes by now without a snooker tournament featuring all the big names in the game these days which gives us plenty of opportunity to cash in your free bets over the season.
There is often plenty of value to be had with your free bets as well due to the field for every tournament generally being a fairly open one. This year Mark Selby became the first player to retain the World Snooker Championship since 2013 and he has won three of the last four World Championships. That's the kind of domination not seen since Stephen Hendry in the 1990s. It's not the case with the UK Championship with no back to back winner since Stephen Hendry in 1996 but Mark Selby will give it a good go when defending his title later this year. As for the Masters Ronnie O'Sullivan has won that for three times in the last four years.

What are the most popular free snooker bets?
Obviously there are the standard markets of tournament winner and the winner of each individual match. As mentioned the tournament winner odds are often quite long with there rarely being a clear favourite for success before a ball is struck so there can be plenty of value to enjoy in this market.
The winner odds in each match are regularly odds-on for one of the competitors but with the number of shocks that now occur in all the tournaments, especially the shorter format competitions, picking an outsider is very doable and plenty of money can be won.
In the short format events such as the Players Tour Championship and its Grand Finals these might be the only markets on offer but in the more traditional competitions there will be plenty of other things to cash in your free bets on.
Number of centuries and half centuries in each match and over a whole tournament is often a popular market especially in the showpiece event of the year the World Championships at the Crucible in Sheffield. Of course the fabled maximum break of 147 can also be backed over a tournament or even a match if you have a really strong feeling although just for it to happen over an entire competition will be odds-against.
Over the longer formats the handicap markets come into play as well as winning by considerable margins can happen which always make the odds a lot more tempting than simply a straight forward win bet.
There are plenty of markets to enjoy and keep checking here at FREEbets.org.uk to find out the best of them and where best to cash your free bets in with.
Like most snooker matches there are markets on all the individual games as well as overall odds on the tournament as a whole; inclding the outright winner, the finalists, and so forth. Other odds availale include:
- Winning nationality
- Number of 147s
- Quickest frame
- Most colours potted
- Most ball potted
- Most fouls
- And loads more
There will also be a host of specials around the time of the tournament on some of the big names, with the likes of Ronnie O'Sullivan expected, as usual, to be the centre of attention.
