Betfred Launch £5Million White Christmas Giveaway

This Promotion Ends On 24th December 2023 - Article Published On 23rd November 2023

One of the most popular festive betting markets is whether there will be snow falling on Christmas Day. It takes just one snowflake to win a bet and no doubt they'll be many punters looking for good odds. However we're pretty sure that there's going to be a lot of people watching the weather forecast this year and that's all thanks to Betfred. They've just launched an incredible winter promotion that could see five customers becoming millionaires on Christmas morning. This amazing prize will only be awarded if snow is lying at London Heathrow on Christmas morning. If there's no snow then there's no prizes!

How To Enter The £5million Christmas Dream

The £5million Christmas Dream runs at Betfred between the 10th November and 24th December 2023. To earn one entry into this prize draw all you need to do is visit Betfred, be registered, login and then opt-in. As far as we're aware no deposit is required. You can earn more entries by wagering on the site. Players will earn one additional entry for every betslip of £1 or more, up to a maximum of 100 entries. Bets can be placed on any sportsbook market, lotto draw or virtual sport. However wagering on bingo, casino and slots will not count towards this promotion. The key terms for this promotion are as follows: 00:00 10/11/23 - 23:59 24/12/23. Opt-In for 1 free entry, then every betslip of £1+ at qualifies up to max 100 entries/player. 5 prizes of £1M if snow lies at Heathrow Airport Weather Station at 09:00 25/12/23. Max 1 prize/player. Winners notified by 14/01/24.

Let It Snow

If on Christmas Day at 9am there's snow on the ground at London Heathrow then five lucky winners will become millionaires. Sadly the definition of snow on the ground is a little bit more than one snowflake in this case. According to the terms and conditions the definition of snow lying is as follows: "snow lying is determined using data and a measurement protocol provided by the MET Office and verified by WeatherNet, a leading UK independent weather analytics company. The measurement protocol has existed for 74 years at London Heathrow and requires 50% of the level ground in the observing site to be covered by at least a dusting of snow". One thing worth noting is that if there isn't any snow then Betfred won't have to dish out any prizes whatsoever. Whilst we like the prize money on offer we do wonder whether some consolations prizes wouldn't go amiss just in case it's not a White Christmas at London Heathrow.

Will It Be A White Christmas

We're guessing that Betfred have calculated that it's unlikely to be a White Christmas. That way they can maximise enthusiasm and interest in the promotion whilst being fairly confident that it's not costing them that much in prize money (and it wouldn't be a surprise if the £5million is an insured bet anyway). Long range weather forecasts are usually hit and miss - a bit like short range ones - but Will I Get A White Christmas suggests there's a 25% chance of snow fall at London Heathrow on the 25th December. We've no idea what they base that stat on! Mind you a recent report in The Mirror indicates that a white Christmas looked "increasingly likely". But what the forecasters think actually doesn't matter. Get your free entry in as soon as possible, maybe add a couple of more entries if you're happy to place bets with Betfred as we head towards the big, then spend the rest of the time praying for snow. Good luck and here's hoping that there's snow on the ground and five new millionaires on Christmas Day 2023.
