Different Types of Betting Promotions

Asides from the welcome offer you receive when joining a betting site as a new customer, bookmakers offer a number of different special offers and promotions.

Most notably, SportNation put out a great golf betting offer for the 2018 Ryder Cup.

We will focus on sportsbook only offers, as casino offers tend to have difficult turnover requirements that can “trap players money”.

However, some sportsbook welcome offers also have turnover requirements, but usually a lot lower than the casino.

New Customer Specials

Most betting sites will have a standard, fixed welcome offer but with select big events, they will run special new customer offers.

These are usually event specific, say a big boxing fight is coming up. You may see high odds for new customers for the bookie’s favourite to win. These offers are usually paid out in free bets but they can sometimes be in cash too.

Odds Boosts

Bookmakers can run odds boost for new and existing customers regularly. Most betting sites will offer daily odds boosts on select events.

These can offer higher odds on the underdog or bets on the favourite to increase their value. Most of the best betting sites will offer acca boosts for slips with two or more bets.

Accumulator Insurance

Acca insurance varies from one bookmaker to the next, but most offer insurances for 5 or more selections if one lets you down.

You can get your stake refunded as a free bet, which is great protection for your acca’s. How many times has your acca let you down by one leg?

Best Odds Guaranteed

This is a promotion for horse racing, but most of the top UK betting sites offer the best odds guaranteed if the starting price is bigger than the price on your selection.

This saves a lot of time from comparing the highest odds across a number of bookmakers. Be sure to check the betting sites promotions page to see if they offer the Best Odds Guarantee.

Competition Promotions

Many betting sites will run regular competitions for the opportunity to win big cash prizes, trips to sporting events and more.

You will see them appear in their promotions page when a big event is upcoming like the World Cup, Wimbledon, Olympics and more.
