There are always deals on offer with the bookmakers…
And if you act smart, and move quickly, you can very often bag yourself free bets, enhanced payout terms or account-boosting incentives to open and use betting accounts.
All the the bookies listed below offer good financial reasons for opening an account… all you need to do is get yourself signed up!
Bet 365… founded just over 10 years ago, the company has become one of the world’s largest bookmaking companies. A highly innovative operation (just think of those half-time adverts during televised football matches) their markets are directly aimed at betting’s shrewdest operators.
Betfair… the world’s biggest betting exchange was founded in 2000. Since then it has become one of the industry’s most influential market-makers… if not the most important betting medium available to punters. If you’ve not got a Betfair account… you need one!
Betfair – £\€100 in free bets. New Customer Offer. Place 5 x £/€10 or more bets to receive £/€ 20 in free bets.
Repeat up to 5 times to receive maximum £/€100 bonus. Min odds ½ (1.5). Exchange bets excluded. T&Cs apply.
William Hill… dates back to 1934, one of the UK’s major players in the bookmaking industry (regarded as one of the ‘Big 3’ firms along with Ladbrokes & Coral). Now based in the UK, Eire & Gibraltar… Hills offer full market coverage and BOG pricing (Best Odds Guaranteed).
Sportingbet… like most layers these days, they cover all popular markets. Founded in 1997 operate the likes of Paradise Poker and Paradise Casino alongside conventional fixed odds betting markets. Subject to a substantial takeover bid by William Hills in 2012.
Boyle Sports… large Irish independent bookmaker. Another ‘Best Odds’ operator, the Dundalk-based firm offer some good market coverage and are definitely worthy of a place in your betting portfolio. And a current offer of £50 in FREE BETS for new customers is an added bonus.
Paddy Power… another Irish bookmaker and another to offer a wide range of special offers as well as ‘Best Odds Guaranteed‘. They provide some of the best betting odds and use some great promotions… remember Nicklas Bendtner’s underpants at UEFA 2012?
Paddy Power – Risk Free £/€20. New customers only, limited to one per person. If you’ve previously had a Paddy Power account,
you will not qualify for the offer. Place your first bet on any Sportsbook market and if it loses we will refund your stake in CASH.
Max refund for this offer is £/€20. Only deposits made using Cards or Paypal will qualify for this promotion. T&Cs apply.
Sky Bet… part of the BSkyB/Sky Sports empire, the business was originally based upon Surrey Sports. The company now includes other platforms (Sky Bingo, Sky Poker, Sky Vegas) and its introductory sign-up offer differs from other firms as the bonus requires no deposit.
Stan James… the UK bookie were one of the founding fathers of in-play betting, the company provide a good coverage of horseracing markets as well as general all-sports betting. Ignore the meagre looking sign-up bonus, their prices more than make up for this failing!
Betdaq… originally founded by Dermot Desmond in 2000, the company is now controlled by Ladbrokes. Despite a smaller market share than main rival (Betfair), this is one firm destined to grow rapidly in the coming years. And attrative sign-up bonuses make this a ‘must have’ account.
And as more offers become available, I’ll mark them up here…
So bookmark this page and make sure you come back regularly to pocket yourself some extra FREE cash.
And remembers at all times…
To bet responsibly.
