NFL Bonuses: Online Sportsbook comparison
Sportsbook Review has updated the Sportsbook Bonuses directory with the online sportsbook promotions released for the upcoming NFL and College Football seasons. Some sportsbooks have yet to release their special early bird promotions so bookmarking the page and checking it throughout the preseason will show real time updates as SBR researches offers daily. During the MLB season few bonuses are offered as the margins are low for bookmakers. Once football comes around, players are often bombed with offers from books they may not even recognize. It's important not to pursue an offer just because it is juicy. The online sportsbooks listed in the bonuses directory are currently rated as low as of C- which should be avoided for the risk averse. SBR advises players to consider ratings and feedback before depositing to any company, especially with new sportsbooks that are not backed by existing operations. SBR resources such as the scam sportsbook blacklist and avoid list are worth reading before investing hard earned funds. SBR invites players to share their feedback on the presentation of the bonuses directory; feedback can be submitted via email or in the SBR Posting Forum in the Sportsbooks & Industry section.
How to compare Online Sportsbooks bonuses: Bonus $ / ROLLOVER = Bonus per Playthrough = True Bonus
SBR has ordered the bonuses directory by bonus action per play. In other words, SBR has analyzed the size of a given bonus and compared it against the required rollover. This is considered the "True Bonus". For example, if you accept a $100 cash bonus with a 5X rollover, you are receiving $20 of the bonus during each play-through - this is considered your pure bonus. The bigger the percentage of your bonus per wager, the faster you can take a payout. In the bonus world players often believe bigger is always better. This is why sportsbooks inflate the bonus numbers and hope you ignore the wagering requirements. If 100% freeplay is offered with a 10X rollover, SBR would calculate your bonus value per play at 5%. With freeplays you have roughly a 50% chance of adding the total bonus amount to your bonus. (Your $500 free play will result in either $0 with a loss or approximately $500 with a win) SBR subtracts half of the total bonus before dividing by the given rollover. So, a 100% free play is worth 50% cash bonus with a rollover of 5x is $10 per play through and $10 TRUE Bonus. Traditional freeplays are worth about half the same amount in cash.
Researching each Online Sportsbook
While Sportsbook Review is listing sportsbooks with a grade of C- or better in the bonuses directory, historically, the higher rated sportsbooks have performed better across the board in the areas of payout speed, wagering options, customer service, and platform stability. Players may wish to review the most recent SBR community top sportsbook poll, which surveyed all SBR forum users to cast their vote for their favorite sportsbook. The SBR Sportsbooks Rating Guide represents a broader list of over 1000 sportsbooks graded by player feedback and SBR's opinion on past performance.
