Bookmaker Bonus: Large bonuses from the online bookies

Online Bookmakers Betting Guides Bookmaker Reviews Live Football Odds


The bonuses and free bets are among the most popular features of the online bookies and here we will show you which bookmakers offer the largest bonus for your money. But before we present you with the list of big bonuses from the online bookmakers, a few words of caution are always wise. First and foremost - don't assume that just because the bookie is giving you free bonus money that they are actually giving you free money. Many novice punters fall victims to this assumption - that just because the bookmakers are giving their customers bonuses - they can simply take it and run. Like the old saying goes " there is no free lunch", the same could be said about the bonus offers the internet bookmakers present to their players. There are a few restrictions put in place, for  example:

 The wagering requirement - often referred to as "rollover" or "playthrough", this stipulation is put in place to prevent the customer from simply withdrawing the bonus as soon as they get it. Every bookmaker has wagering requirement in place, which simply means that the customer must wager a predetermined amount based on the bonus, before their bonus becomes eligible for withdrawal. For example, the bonus for new customers offered by Bet 365 you can see below requires a rollover of 3 times the bonus + deposit before the punter is eligible to withdraw the bonus money. The bonus rollover is where many people new to online betting get in trouble - they simply don't take the time to read the terms and conditions to find out about the rollover requirements. We have noted those wagering requirements on our list of large bonuses from the online bookmakers for this exact same reason.

 And of course it's worth mentioning that the bonuses are almost always related to a deposit, i.e. you don't just get the bonus by simply opening an account - you have to fund your betting account and the bonus will be given to you as a percentage of  the deposit you have made. There are free bets and bonuses which some of the online bookmakers offer that do not require any deposits, but those are usually given on very big sporting event (match derbies, famous horse races, etc) and are for existing customers only.  We have noted those and are keeping track of them on our free bets list page.

 Here are the large bonuses offered by the most popular online bookies:

Bookie Bonus Rollover Comments
Bet 365 £/€/¥/$ 200 3 times bonus+deposit New customer only, one of the best rollover requirements. To place a bet with your bonus, play through the amount of your qualifying deposit once on a sporting event of your choice.

As you can see, there are not as many large bonuses from the online bookies as one would've imagined. You can browse our selection of bookmakers on the home page to find out more about the bookies' bonus or alternatively our free bets section to get as much free bonuses as possible. Don't forget to read the terms and conditions of every promotional offer you take advantage at the online bookies.
