Click "use free bet" to select the free bet but remember this will not be included in any returns.
To bet live during a match or game, simply choose which match you would like to bet on under 'Live Betting' which you will find on our home page at www.skybet.com. You can then bet on any market providing it hasn't been suspended due to a change in play.
