With so many casinos and sportsbook operators out there, all offering incentives for your business it can be hard to know which ones to choose. That is why we provide detailed sports and casino reviews.
Firstly, you should focus on trusted brands that you recognise from your country. This will give you peace of mind that all your personal and financial details are safe and secure with a reputable and well established company.
Popular high street names such as Ladbrokes, William Hill, Coral and Paddy Power are some such UK companies and while many punters will remain loyal to just one, having multiple accounts is a great way of maximising your betting potential and profits.
Secondly, you need to look for offers that match with your preferences and type of play. For example, if you are a regular or big casino player where turnover is not a major issue then you can look at some of the higher valued bonuses. If you don’t play casino games or slots that often, then perhaps look at some of the lower value ones where the wagering / turnover requirements are probably not so high. Or alternatively, you could target ones that offer prize draw incentives or competitions so you can be in with a chance of a big win, or a nice prize such as an entry into a big poker tournament.
In this section we will be concentrating on sports betting free bets and bonus offers which, although usually smaller, are generally better than casino welcome offers, in that in most cases there are no wagering requirements to fulfill. Casino bonuses can often have a requirement of 30x or more. With free sports bets it’s often just a simple, free matched bet based on your first bet or deposit. The free bet stakes are not returned with any winnings, you just collect the profit, but you are usually able to withdraw this straight away if you wish.
So, if you enjoy betting on sport it is definitely worth working your way around all the sports bookmakers and taking them up their introductory free bet offers. In most cases, if you know what you are doing, it can be effectively like obtaining free money (or a zero risk bet), but we will analyse all the terms and conditions and guide you, telling you both the good and the bad points, about the huge variety of betting offers that are currently available.
Wagering Requirements – Many bonus offers will require that you place a number of bets (known as the wagering or turnover requirement) in order to collect or withdraw the freebies.
Always check the small print to ensure your qualifying deposit first before you are able to bet with your bonus.
In addition, you are also required to have settled bets that come to three times the value of your deposit and bonus before you are allowed to withdraw any bonus funds or winnings. So in the case of the maximum £200 bonus, you would need to have settled bets of £1,200 (£200 deposit + £200 bonus x 3). It may sound a lot but that can easily be achieved, especially if you bet on sports regularly or you can use different bookmakers to ‘trade’ both sides of a football match for example.
Time Limitations – Bookmakers will also sometimes set limits whereby you have to complete the wagering requirements within a certain time period of say, 30 or 90 days, so you need to be aware of this too to fully take advantage of all these bookmaker enticements and not miss out.
More knowledgeable punters can also utilize the betting exchanges to guarantee a win no matter what the outcome, or to help reach their wagering requirements at little to no risk. This is known as ‘matched betting’ and can be a difficult concept for novices to grasp. We can discuss these topics in more detail in future articles.
In any event, it is always advisable that you take a little time out to read through their terms and conditions (although we will always try to highlight the most important points in our reviews) as it is very important you don’t miss something that would mean you lose out on your bonus, as there are often pitfalls if you are not on the ball.
Free matched bet – Many sports books will give you some sort of free welcome bet, usually based on your first bet up to a maximum amount. You will need to check the terms as sometimes there is a minimum price requirement or other conditions.
