£5 free bet on the Athletics at Paddy Power GamesPaddy Power Games are giving away a £5 free bet on the Athletics during the Olympics for simply playing their slot games.

The London 2012 Olympics seem like the only thing people are talking about at the moment and Paddy Power Games are cleverly offering a £5 free bet on the most popular event – the Athletics. To get your free £5 bet, follow these simple steps:

1. Wager £10 on any of the slots

2. Use the promo code ATHLETICS12 in the ‘Vouchers’ section (‘My Account’ section)

3. You will get your free £5 Athletics bet immediately

As you can see, wagering/staking £10 on their slots will be quite easy to do. You have a wide range of great games such as Star Trek, Cleopatra, Da Vinci Diamonds and Kitty Glitter (all IGT powered). Some of my favourites include Leprechaun’s Luck, Alice’s Wonderland and Midas Millions. Midas Millions is a pirate themed slot with a progressive jackpot just over £175,000.

Back to the promotion – once you have your free £5 bet, you need to place your £5 bet by 1pm on Sunday the 12th of August. You have lots of options but the obvious choice is to back the Jamaican, Usain Bolt. Here are a few good bets you can have on the legendary sprinter:

  • 100 metre final (Saturday 4th) – Usain Bolt 8/11 to win
  • 200 metre final (Tuesday 7th) – Usain Bolt 1 to 2 to win
  • Usain Bolt to win both races – 5/4 to win
  • Usain Bolt to break the 100 metre World Record – 11/4

If you want to back Team GB, a good person to back is Mo Farah. The UK’s finest ever distance runner is taking part in the Men’s 10,000 metre final on the 4th of August and the Men’s 5,000 metre final on the 8th of August. He’s at 6/5 and 7/4 respectively to win each race as well as 7/2 to win both races.
