Sportsbook Bonus Advisory: Beware of scam betting site offers

The Super Bowl is a celebrated time of the year for online sports bettors.

Not only is there a massive rush to find a quality betting site, deposit, and wager on the big game, but online sportsbooks typically offer a quality sportsbook bonus for additional bang for your buck.

That will be the case for Super Bowl 50.

However, players need to understand that not every sportsbook bonus is created equal. Online sportsbooks that are in lesser standing with players, whether new or unproven websites, will try to amp up their bonus offering to incentivize players to pick their website over a more established betting site.

Bigger!=better
Bigger is not always better when it comes to the quality of online sportsbook bonuses. SBR has a sportsbook bonus directory which measures the amount of pure bonus value associated with offers.

For instance, a free play is worth about half the value of a traditional sportsbook cash bonus. Consequently, free plays are not as valuable as cash bonuses with equal rollover requirements. (A rollover requirement refers to the number of times you need to bet the bonus before placing a withdrawal).

Online sportsbooks listed on the scam blacklist do their most marketing in the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl. Players will have every clever sportsbook bonus offer under the sun promoted to them, and may even have a promotional mailer arrive under their doorstep. This is why it is important to check the sportsbook rating guide.

Online sportsbooks that have stood the test of time without consistently falling behind on payouts should always be a player's first choice. The top five online betting sites as voted by the SBR poster's community are displayed at the top right of this article.

Sportsbook bonuses can be extremely +EV or expected value, but only if the online betting site intends to pay your balance when it comes to make a withdrawal. By sticking with the best online sportsbooks, players will have a much smoother experience receiving a quick and on-time payout following the conclusion of Super Bowl 50.
