Despite the clear popularity of football betting, many punters enjoy the opportunity to take a break from gambling by playing some free-to-play games on bookmaker websites. It’s far from being the first thing you’ll look for when you enter a bookie website or application, but the demand is growing due to it being an interesting alternative to betting on football where you don’t even need to stake a single penny of your own money.
As much as we doubt that many punters are visiting bookmaker websites with the intention of doing anything other than betting, there are some worthwhile games that have become an exciting way of passing your lunch break or train journey. These games come in many forms, with some being available merely to entertain and others even offering some weighty cash prizes for the winner, but all of them being of interest to a wide range of football fans.
Popular football brain teasers include:
A free-to-play game that a lot of people would refer to as being the best, Super 6 offers SkyBet customers with the chance to win anywhere between £5,000 and £1 million to whoever can correctly predict the outcome of six specific football fixtures.
Although it sounds easy, it’s actually very difficult, as even being a single goal off can ruin your chances of taking the cash prize on offer. It takes place every weekend and is completely free, so it’s always worth entering in your selections in case you’re right with what you’re predicting.
While the option to take part in quizzes might not sound like the most exciting way of passing some free time, they’re massively in-demand and are one of the primary alternatives to betting. These brain teasers come in a lot of different forms and involve cup finalists, trophy winners, top goalscorers, historic football teams, and any other facts and figures that can be guessed by website visitors.
You’ll find plenty of examples on Oddschanger’s Quizzes page, where they always post out brain teasers for football on the biggest matches taking place and the latest news stories.
Many would refuse to include Fantasy Football as a free-to-play football game, but it surely ranks as the very best. The concept of Fantasy Football has existed for several years, with it starting as an activity devoted to fans of American Football, before eventually crossing over to Britain, where football fans are given the chance to build their own Premier League dream team.
Something that a lot of people are unaware of is how you can win weekly, monthly and seasonal awards based on how many points you pick up throughout the season. All you need to get involved is join a league and the points gained from your players’ individual performances could add up to a range of different prizes.
