What are the Different Type of Sports Betting Bonuses Available to Players?

What so many leading online sports betting companies offering similar odds and markets, it can be difficult to choose where to bet. One of the deciding factors is often the available promotions but what are the different type of sports betting bonuses available to players?

Perhaps the most common sports betting bonus available to players today is the sign-up bonus. This promotion is only available to new customers and is usually in the form of a percentage based on the first deposit. For example, you may receive a 100% bonus up to the value of £50 on your first deposit at the online bookmaker. That means, if you were to make a first deposit of £50, you will receive an additional £50 with which to bet.

Some online sports betting websites will even give your money back as a free bet, should your first bet lose.

You should always take advantage of the sign-up bonus, even if you do not want to deposit the full amount. However, what type of sports betting bonuses are available to those who already have an account at the bookmaker in question?

Football fans love nothing more than an accumulator bet and there are thousands of this type of bet placed every weekend across Europe. However, while the potential winnings from an accumulator bet are always high, the odds of actually succeeding tend to be low. Thankfully, many online bookmakers have decided to offer sports betting bonuses based on the accumulator bet and you can find out more information plus plenty of bonuses at

Some online bookmakers provide their loyalty scheme members with free accumulator bets, whereas others offer insurance on accumulator bets that have 4 legs or more. In terms of the latter, if one leg of your accumulated lets you down, you will receive a free bet up to a specified value. Other online bookmakers will offer enhanced odds on accumulators, thus increasing the amount of potential winnings.

A recent addition to accumulator bonus offers is the option to change your accumulator in-play. So, if one or two of your selections looks set to let you down, you can change them, even after the events have started. There is also the option to cash out your accumulator early and this is one of the more common accumulator style bonuses available at online bookmakers.

Football is not the only sport to benefit from specific bonuses. Horse racing is an extremely popular sport for betting online and there are plenty of betting bonuses available for players. A good example is receiving money as a free bet if your horse fails to win a race but finishes anywhere between second and fourth. This is usually capped to no more than £/€10 but is a great way to enjoy a free bet should your horse not quite get over the line in first place.

So, there are many different types of sports betting bonuses available to players and the choice continues to improve.
