Sportsbook Bonuses directory in a nutshell


The sportsbook bonuses directory ranks betting sites in accordance of the true bonus value per play. Put simply, the total value offered to a player through either a cash or freeplay bonus is compared. For example, you might think that on the surface a 100% freeplay sounds a lot more enticing than 25% cash, but if that freeplay is accompanied by a 10x rollover, you are only looking at approximately 5% real bonus value per bet. Freeplay bonuses are worth approximately half that of cash bonuses, so if a 25% cash bonus is accompanied by a 3X rollover, that equates to approximately 8.3% bonus value per play. Sportsbooks rated a minimum of C- or higher are listed on the bonuses page.
