There are two ways to get bonus bets:

  1. Deposit offers are where a bookmaker incentivises you to deposit your own money to recieve a bonus bet in return for your deposit. Your own money is typically matched at 50% but sometimes up to 100%. Previously, you could ask bookmakers for deposit bonuses before signing up to their website but now you must sign up to their website and then ask for a deposit bonus. Ensure you do not deposit until you have received a valid offer or deposit code.
  2. Promotional offers are where a bookmaker incentivises you to bet on a specific event or sport with the opportunity to receive bonuses in return for being involved in the event or for a specific outcome to occur during the event. A common promotion in horse racing used to get bonus bets in “$50 bonus back for 2nd or 3rd in any race at [Track Name]”.

You can find out which bookmakers give deposit offers by visiting our Bookmaker Review resource and you can find what promotions are being offered for Sports & Racing with our Promotion Calendar.
