With so many different types of Betting Offers available from every online bookmaker you can find, it helps a great deal to have at least a general idea of the characteristics and benefits of each offer. Inexperienced gamblers will typically just see “free money”, skip over reading the finer details of the registration agreement and eagerly sign up to reap the benefits of the incentive. Today, we will go over some of the most common types of bookmaker betting offers and what each one will have in store for you.
The most frequently used of all the different types of bookmaker betting offers is the classic free bet. These came into existence with the inception of online gambling sites. A free bet is usually offered at the beginning of a new user’s membership and will match his / her initial deposit from 100% to 400% (or more in some cases!)
Money back specials are used when a player will lose a bet based on a specific event happening during a sporting event (for example: if no goals are scored during a football match).
If you are constantly on the go and don’t often find yourself in front of your home computer, bookmakers now provide exclusive betting offers via mobile phones and tablets. All you have to do is place a bet with your mobile device and you are eligible to receive a free cash bonus.
Reload bonuses are available for gamblers who want to subsequently deposit more money into their gambling accounts; although, these reload bonuses usually never payout as high as the initial deposit bonus.
Some bookmakers use a comprehensive rewards system in order to keep their users on their site longer. A good example of a rewards system is Bet365’s Merit points which simply allow users to earn points based on the number of games and tournaments they participate in.
