New betting offers 2017 – Welcome bonuses
A welcome bonus is a promotion that is available to new players on a site. It is used by sites as a way to attract new players to them, whether from other sites who are unhappy with their options or for those players who are creating their first online account. This is a great way to get a kick start to your winnings on a new site.
There are many welcome bonuses available for players on sites. As sites are constantly competing against each other, this allows them to benefit from multiple sites’ offers. The most common of these offers include matching deposits, free matching offers and free win multipliers.
What to think of when choosing a welcome bonus
- Wager requirement – Many welcome bonuses have a limit on the minimum amount that you need to wager in order to receive the bonus and usually have a maximum amount available for a bonus as well.
- Minimum Odds – Many welcome bonuses are only valid on bets that have a minimum odds requirement (thus limiting you from using it on heavy favourites).
- Betting Bonus Validity Period – When considering welcome bonuses, make sure to check the validity period for these offers - the time within which you are required to place the bet. This can range anywhere from a week to an unlimited amount of time.
- Bonus code – A bonus code is one that is given to players upon signing up, allowing them to access offers that are not available to other players.
When joining many websites you will have a matching bonus available for the first deposit on the site up to a certain amount. If you choose to bet £5 on a soccer match then the site will match it if you win on the payout as long as you have used it within the bonus validity period.
