Can anyone help me out?

I Just wanted to check as last time i did MB, it was a simple case of using the free bet and laying at the exchange and any winnings you could withdraw if it was bookies or keep in the bank if the exchange won.

Ive seen two free bets this morning when ive looked at the T&C they talk about wagering:

This was a bet £10 get £30 bet:

The Free Bet must be wagered once (1) before any subsequent winnings can be withdrawn.

does this just mean i need to bet the £30 free bet and any winnings are mine? as i would normally do?

the other one was :

bet £10 get £20 free, t&C says:

'what happens after the free bet-If you win, the net winnings are paid out to your account. You then need to wager the winnings 1 time with a minimum odds of 1.5 in the Sportsbook section before a withdrawal.'

am i right in thinking if you win at the bookies using the free bet i need to bet the winnings again? if so would that wagering bet still be treated as a free SNR? How does it affect any profit- as long as you lay it again would it be ok as you win either way (bookie v exchange)?
i suppose in terms of money being in limbo it would be better to win at the exchange in the first place?

thanks for your help

if the free bet just needs to be wagered once then once you have bet and laid with the free bet you can withdraw any winnings should they end up on the bookie side

[member=1731]cleofish123[/member] If the t&cs say that the winnings need to be wagered once, then if your free bet wins at the bookies you will need to bet the winnings at least once. You would calculate this as NORMAL and lay it off - you'd lose a few pence (just like you do when placing a qualifying bet) but then it will release your winnings into your normal wallet and you can withdraw.

This doesn't happen THAT often - usually if your free bets win at the bookies then it'll just be in your account as normal money and you can withdraw it. If you're unsure then you can check - some bookies show money that needs wagering in a 'bonus' wallet, or when you try to withdraw it then it won't let you until the wagering has been done.
