Best Sportsbook Bonus Offers

The start of football season is always a huge rush of hype and odds to bet on and the debate over which are the best sportsbook bonuses.

This year, some of the usual players have stepped away from the space but others have raised the ante in the battle to earn your sportsbook business. We take a look at some of the biggest ones among those providing their odds to OddsShark.com.

Bovada - The biggest football bonus in the company's history is attracting plenty of attention for the second straight NFL season. New customers receive a 50% bonus, up to $250 on their first deposit - this from a company that has preferred to go small with bonuses in the past. Best to take advantage of their generosity while it's available! And bonuses come in different ways - the underdog odds here are the best in the biz and the variety of fun prop bets is second to none. Check out Bovada and get more.

5Dimes - Bonus values comes in different shapes and sizes. At 5Dimes, lower-priced bets and loyalty program perks inflate the value of their upfront bonus offers. But they also offer a longer-term bonus schedule that can put as much as $520 in bonus bucks in your e-wallet. Don't be put off by the old-style website - it is a trustworthy operation that is graded A or A+ by all the major top sportsbook review sites. Check out 5Dimes and a sister site SportBet which offer similar perks and specials and which earn similar top grades from industry watchdogs.

TopBet - In addition to weekly free bets, TopBet is offering a 50 per cent deposit bonus for 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.

Sportsbook.ag - Up to $500 in bonuses is a whopping addition to your wagering bankroll and Sportsbook.ag is back for football season with this offer.

International visitors from Canada, Europe and Asia can find two OddsShark.com longtime sponsors as industry leaders in quality, integrity and bonus perks.
