Best bookie offers for beginners - Best betting Offers
By Michael Flynn, Feb 19 2013 02:06PM
Following on from the top 5 bookmakers for beginners, I thought it would be useful to expand on ongoing promotions. These ongoing promotions or latest offers are what can really boost your bank roll. If you are going to bet on a market it is well worth using a bookie that has an offer on, just make sure that you are betting on the market already, not just because there is an offer!
First I will look at horse racing offers:
Best odds Guaranteed
Best Odds Guaranteed is pretty standard across all UK bookmakers, but only on UK and Irish racing.
Best Odds Guaranteed ensures you get the best price on your racing bet, if you take a price before the start of a race and the SP ( Starting Price) is higher, you will be paid out on the higher price. This is a great way of getting the best price, make sure to double check the bookmaker uses BOG! All the bookies below have BOG.
4/1 Feature Race Offer
Back any single winner at 4/1 or more on a bet 365 Feature Race and you can have a free bet to the same stake on the next bet 365 Feature Race.
If your free bet also wins at odds of 4/1 or more, you qualify for a free bet on the next bet365 Feature Race.
Keep backing those winners and bet 365 will keep giving you free bets!
This offer is available with bet 365 on two races per day when there is no scheduled live Channel 4 racing and now on every race live on the BBC.
Verdict on the 4/1 Feature Race Offer:
This offer is an amazing way to boost your winnings, of course you have to win in the first place. But with the possibility to have several free £50 bets, you just cannot complain. This offer also runs on big racing event such as the Cheltenham Festival. *** Please be careful, if you just bet on this offer your account at bet365 might get limited. Bet365 is one account you do not want getting limited.***
5 x The Odds For One Winner
On all Lucky 63's plus:
4 x the Odds for One Winner on all Lucky 31's
3 x the Odds for One Winner on all Lucky 15's
Available on all Horse Racing and Greyhound Racing all day every day and NOW on All Betfred Virtual Horse Racing and Virtual Greyhound Racing…every race, every day.
Verdict on 5 x The Odds For One Winner offer:
This is a good offer if you are going to bet on Lucky 63's,31'2 or 15's. Betfred do generally have good odds on horse racing so that is not an issue. I would steer clear of the virtual racing, can't really understand the pull on this one.
Paddy Power Horse Racing Offers:
Paddy Power do not have an out in out horse racing offer like bet365 or Betfred, however they do have daily offers for specific races. They will put the offers up a few hours before a race on this offers page. Generally speaking they are normally money back offers if your horse finishes second. Well worth a look.
BetVictor Horse Racing Offers:
BetVictor like Paddy Power do not have an out in out offer for horsde racing, however they do have offers for the big races. Below are a few examples of offers for Cheltenham and the Grand National, don't worry if these events have passed as they will have offers for other major events.
Cheltenham Offer: Have a bet on any Cheltenham Festival 2013 ante post market and if your selection is a non-runner BetVictor will refund your losing stake as a free bet!
Grand National Offer: Have a bet on the Aintree Grand National 2013 Antepost market and if your selection is a non-runner BetVictor will refund your losing stake as a free bet!
From time to time there will be other horse racing offers and offers from other bookies, to make sure you are upt o date on these offers you will need to bookmark the offers blog.
Next I will look at Football Offers:
0-0 refund offer from bet365:
Have a pre-match Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time or Scorecast bet on ANY match and if the game finishes 0-0 Bet 365 will refund all losing bets on selected markets!
Verdict on the 0-0 refund offer:
If you already bet on correct scores, HT/FT or scorecasts you cannot go wrong with this offer. It does get annoying when you lose out because of a poor match with no goals, so this offer is a top one. You can get better odds from an exchange on correct scores, but with this refund offer it makes me want to sway towards bet365.
100% Euro Soccer Bonus from bet365:
You can earn a bonus of up to 100% on your returns if you place accumulators on the Premier League, Serie A, Primera Liga, Bundesliga 1 or Champions League.
Place a pre-match accumulator of 3 or more selections combining teams in any of the above competitions, and if successful bet365 will add the following bonuses to your returns:
Verdict on 100% Euro Soccer Bonus from bet365:
Ok, now this is an offer I can personally endorse as I received a 30% bonus on a 7-fold bet. This was a huge extra bonus to my win and at the time I did not know about the offer and thought it was a mistake! There are other accumulator offers around that give refunds, but when you win one (yes I know not very often!) you win a big bonus. Great way to boost a big win.
Double Delight - Hat-trick Heaven
Double Delight - If your Player scores the first goal of the match, then goes on to score another, Fred will DOUBLE your first goalscorer price!
Hat-Trick Heaven - If your player scores the first goal of the match, then goes on to score a hat-trick, Fred will TREBLE your first goalscorer price
Verdict on Double Delight - Hat-trick Heaven:
This is more of gimmocky offer, you can get better first goalscorer prices else where. However a lot of the time the big players do go on to score more than one goal. This can boost your winnings and is worth a go if you want a bit of a gamble.
Paddy Power football offers:
Like their racing offers, Paddy Power have offers updated on a daily basis for specific matches. Have a look by clicking below.
The offers above are a great way to boost your winnings, most of the best offers are only around for a few hours before the event.
