Sportsbook Bonuses Grid Updated

02.04.2015

Sportsbook Review has updated the sportsbook bonuses grid with the post-Super Bowl sign up bonus offers. Changes were recorded to four online sportsbooks cash bonuses. The grid is sorted in order of what SBR refers to as the "True Bonus" or pure bonus amount per play. Freeplay bonuses for example are rated at approximately half the bonus value than cash bonuses; then the bonus percentage is divided by the rollover amount. Also listed on the page are categories for maximum bonus amount, country restrictions, and SBR rating. Sportsbooks with a minimum listing of C are rated on the page, though SBR recommends players deal with betting sites who are rated B+ or higher to prevent headaches come withdrawal time or customer service issues.
