What Are Deposit Bonuses?
With so many online bookmakers out there nowadays, it’s really hard to come up with something unique. Therefore, many bookies are trying to attract new players by offering generous deposit bonuses.
Usually, it works like this – once you open an account and deposit a certain amount of money, the bookmaker is going to add a bonus amount to the total tally. You won’t, of course, be able to withdraw it straight away. Instead, withdrawals will become available only once you place a number of bets.
It would be really nice to see all bookmakers offer such deals, but, unfortunately, matters are somewhat more complex at many places. For example, some bookmakers offer deposit bonuses in the form of free bets that can be used only for selections with certain odds – and the second twist is that you’re often going to get only the “winnings” part of the potential payout instead of its full amount.
In any case, the one key takeaway is that you should always read the specific terms and conditions of the offer you’d like to take up. The devil really does tend to be in the details, so try not to miss anything!
