Best Football Bonus Offers for 2013
The competition for your business is almost as fierce as the action on the field, as sportsbooks try to earn new business each football season.
But which football bonuses are the best?
We sort through some of the fine print and competing offers to distill down the best specials from the weak ones.
Bovada sportsbook bonus and more
Historically, this operation did not engage in huge bonuses, but Bovada now offers one of the best ways to pad your wagering bankroll before kickoff.
It's a 50 per cent free bet bonus on initial deposits up to $500. You may use your free bet on any sport, wager type, and odds. It means a $500 deposit for football season turns into a free $250 in bonuses.
There are rules around that bonus amount (you can't simply deposit it and withdraw the money), but if you plan to wager on college football or NFL, it adds a little extra weight to your online wallet.
If you also play online poker and like to play blackjack online in the casino, the bonus amounts skyrocket to $3000!
These sister brands continue to be reliable sportsbook industry standards for quality and fairness and also for football bonuses. Earn free play bonuses up to $520 at SportBet depending on your deposit and method of payment.
They also offer 'reduced juice' specials, which means you pay less money each time you bet. There are also cash-back and other features which, while not technically bonuses, mean more money in your account.
TopBet sportsbook specials
In addition to weekly free bets, TopBet is offering a 50 per cent deposit bonus to new clients. That means if you open an account for $200, you’ll be credited an additional $100.
The bonus is only offered to first-time depositors and does require 5-times rollover in the sportsbook and 25-times rollover in the online casino. The maximum bonus is $250 on a $500 deposit.
As with all bonuses, make sure to follow the requirements and understand the fine print. And ask your customer service rep if you are not sure what a bonus condition means.
GTbets.eu online football bonus
A newer sponsor here at OddsShark.com, GTbets.eu offers a tiered football bonus approach. They offer 100% up to $150 or 50% up to $500. It means a maximum $500 bonus, but that is a great start to September.
There are also reload bonuses, refer-a-friend bonuses, and even special rates when you bet on your favorite teams.
