How to Take Advantage of Bookmaker Sign Up Offers

When you sign up with a new bookmaker, you will often be given a free bet or some kind of other offer from them as a reward for signing up. These are now very common and give your new account a great start when you open it. When opening up a new account you can take advantage of these offers and use the bonus funds to place your first few bets with the new company. This should prevent you from needing to deposit any more funds for a while. If you are lucky enough to win then you will find yourself with winnings to play with, as well as any remaining bonus you have.

The key to successfully taking advantage of these offers is navigating through the turnover amount that is attached to the bonus funds. When you receive a bonus, you have to play that amount of money through a certain number of times before the funds are available for you to withdraw. After placing bets and winning, you will then need to carefully select a number of low-risk bets to place your money on, in an attempt to keep hold of it while also playing it through the correct number of times.

Horse racing fans may look at strong odds on favourites as a way of placing low-risk bets to play through their turnover requirements so they can withdraw their funds. We all know that not all odds on favourites win every time they run, but by carefully selecting the right horses in the big races you should be able to find success. Recently we have seen the big favourite, Tiger Roll, win the Grand National, much to the delight of punters.

Alongside bookmakers offering sign-up bonuses to new players, casinos also do the same. Casino bonuses are generally bigger than those offered by bookmakers, but their play through amounts are often bigger and there is not a low-risk option to choose really when you are playing your funds through.

Casino bonuses are usually free spins, bonus credits or a combination of the two, and a great way to get a new account started. As these are harder to roll over and keep hold of, often the best way to use a casino bonus is to explore the different games on offer that you would not normally play. As a case in point, Mr Green online casino has hundreds of slot games available to play, and an ideal use of the bonus would be to explore the games on offer, playing ones that you have never played before in order to find some new favourites that you might have not been aware of already.

This will give you a great feel for the new platform, and you will be able to get a taste of the games on offer inside. It may even lead you to playing them again in the future with your own funds if you enjoy what you play, and giving you a great and broader casino experience with your provider.

With so many games to choose from it can be tough to try them all, but a welcome bonus gives you the funds to do that if you wish. We suggest you apply this same logic to sportsbook bonuses too - as an opportunity. Perhaps it's time to take a closer look at tournaments you haven't been following, or even to discover a range of lesser-known but potentially profitable sports and leagues.
