The 2018 NFL regular season is starting to heat up heading into Week 6 of a 16-game schedule. All eight division races are starting to take shape as the true contenders have already begun to separate themselves from the rest of the pack. Hopefully you have been banging the books through the first five weeks of games, but even if you are in the red with your betting results, there are plenty a ways to boost your betting bankroll through some very generous bonus offers from some of the top online sports betting sites in the game.
One of the most common bonus offers that just about every online book has in place is cash back on your overall betting activity. Once all the requirements have been met, the bonus cash is credited to your online betting account.
The best offers are for new customers and your initial deposit into an online betting account, but there is plenty of money up for grabs when you reload your existing account with your current book. You always have to make sure to read and understand the rollover requirements to earn free cash back on the money you bet.
A cash-back bonus on the money you deposit and the money you bet is a great way for an active sports bettor to extend a betting bankroll. The best thing about these types of bonuses is that the rollover requirement covers all the bets you place for every major sport. With the start of a new season of hockey in the NHL along with the NBA returning to action in the middle of October, an active betting strategy for all the sports in play right now can lead to some lucrative bonus rewards.
If you consider yourself a recreational sport bettor that only has some small action on a few games a week, these types of bonus offers may not fit into your overall betting strategy. Today’s online sportsbooks still like to reward customer loyalty. One of the easiest ways to earn some cash back from the books is to take advantage of their very generous customer referral incentives. By simply referring another bettor to their bookmaking services, you can earn a free bet bonus if certain requirements are met on your referral’s end. This usually entails setting up an online account with a deposit and rolling that deposit over a certain amount of times. Referral bonuses are normally not tied to your particular betting activity.
Another bonus incentive at certain online sports betting sites is a free-bet once you have opened an online betting account. You get the place the free bet upfront. If you win, there may be some rollover requirements in place before you can request a withdrawal. However, there is no upfront risk. This type of bonus has been used to entice sports bettors to utilize a book’s mobile platform for placing wagers.
One of the best incentives offered by online sportsbooks for certain types of wagers is “reduced juice’ on the amount of commission you have to pay on any losing bet. The standard juice on a bet is 10 percent, but some incentives will cut this in half to five percent. Once again, it is very important to read and understand any rules or regulations that are in place to take advantage of this type of offer, but saving money when you lose is a great way to extend your overall bankroll.
Bonus offers, promotions and incentives are always up for grabs as you move through the sports betting calendar. Given just how big betting on the NFL is, now is the time of the year when the books roll out some of their most lucrative offers of the year.
