Because the world of online betting is so competitive betting and casino sites have to do something to entice more customers to use them, and that is why they always offer great promotions for new and for loyal customers. If you are not making the most out of these offers then you are really missing out on a great chance to bet with free cash. When you do start to take advantage of some of the great offers which are available, there are some things which you need to watch out for in order to get the most value from it, let’s take a look.
Where to Find Them
When you head to the official site of an online bookmaker or casino you will find a small section where it says ‘promotions’ this is where you can find out what offers are available. Pick your offer and you’re ready to go.
Types of Offers
Not all offers are the same so you’ll need to understand what different types of offers there are available to you. More often than not these will be matched bet offers, where the company will offer you 100% of your first bet credited to you as a free bet, up to a a certain amount. Occasionally you may also find deposit bonuses which mean that they will match your first deposit, again this will be up to a certain amount. If the bonus is 100% of your first bet or deposit up to, let’s say £100, you don’t have to put £100 in there to get the offer, you can put £40 and still get that back, it just means you won’t get any more than £100.
Terms and Conditions
The terms and conditions are really important as you need to know what your limits are and what other requirements there may be. For example if it is a bet, you may’ve to place your qualifying bet at odds of 1.5 or greater, sometimes it may be 2.0. If you don’t meet those requirements you’ll lose the chance to bag a free bet. The same goes for your free bet, occasionally you may have a limit on that set at 4.0 or something similar, bets above this won’t count. Ts and Cs will also have rollover requirements which are important when betting or gambling at the casino. You may have to rollover a free £100 3 times or more before you are able to withdraw your balance to your bank account.
Another thing to look out for on the terms and conditions is the time limit which you have to use your free bet, very often you may only have 7 days in which to use that free bet, so be sure that you know how long you have before that freebie disappears.
These offers can be a great way of boosting your cash pot and giving you more spending power, just be sure that you fully understand what is required from you first.
