Check Sportsbook Bonus Fine Print
A sportsbook forum poster recently shared a complaint against an online betting site that he believed pulled a scam.
The player shared that after running up a balance near $1,000, he was told that the maximum he would be paid was just $250.
This is reason the $50 free bet he was given had a maximum five times redemption.
However, this term was listed clearly in the terms and conditions at that online sportsbook.
All no deposit free bets are accompanied by 5X max withdrawals; this means that players who choose to wager in excess of 5X in winnings are essentially betting with monopoly money.
It is ultimately up to players to make sure they have read the fine print associated with bonus offers, particularly no deposit free bets where players are wagering with house provided money. These type of promos are often weighed down with more fine-print than bonuses that are a percentage of new player deposits.
Check the sportsbook bonus terms for any offer you have accepted to save hassle down the line.
