Top Sportsbook Promotions For The Summer

All bonuses listed here, be they sign-up promos or something else, are accurate as of July 29. All of them should hold firm for some time, but double-check with each sportsbook to make sure these programs are still running, just in case. Consider re-checking sportsbook promos right around the start of the NFL's regular season as well. That's one of the times of year when sites are at their most generous—for both new and incumbent users alike.

SportsBetting: 50 Percent Welcome Bonus (High Maximum)


The folks over at SportsBetting are offering a 50 percent welcome bonus for all of their new users. To redeem this reward, you must deposit a minimum of $25 at registration. The terms will reimburse up to $1,000, which means all deposits over $2,000 will still only receive a $1,000 bonus.

Like usual, Sportsbetting has a 15-time rollover on this free-play. So if you deposit $500 to get $250 in bonus cash, you'll need make a total of $3,750 in wagers using that bonus cash before it fully becomes yours.

This rollover must also be satisfied within 30 days of you claiming your reward money. If you have not satisfied the requirement after that time, all of the free-play cash for the sportsbook will disappear from your account.

Bovada: 50 Percent Welcome Bonus, and $100 Refer-a-Friend Bonus

Bovada is offering a 50 percent welcome bonus to new users as well, only theirs tops out at $250 instead of $1,000. So any deposit made over $500 will still only receive the $250 in bonus money. 

Bovada is also running a refer-a-friend program for the time being. If you recommend the website to someone you know and they register using your name, you will have $100 in free-play money deposited into your account.

Though your refer-a-friend need only mention your name on their sign-up sheet, this program is more effective if they register by phone or live help, so they can make sure that you will be credited for bringing Bovada their business. Please check with Bovada for their specific rollover terms on this bonus cash. 

BookMaker: 25 Percent Cash Welcome Bonus (High Maximum)


This might seem like a letdown when Bovada and SportsBetting are offering 50-percent deposit bonuses for first-time users. It's not. 

BookMaker makes up for his lower welcome promotion with a higher maximum than body. You're only getting 25 percent of your initial investment, but you can claim up to $1,000 of said promotion. In essence, that means you will be rewarded for every dollar you deposit during registration up to $4,000. That's pretty substantial for higher-roller bettors.

That BookMaker only has a five-times rollover on their bonus money makes this offer even better. If you deposit $400 and get a $100 credit, you will only have to make $500 worth of wagers using that free cash before you can make a withdrawal request. Compared to other sportsbooks, this combination of a higher-ceiling bonus and shorter rollover terms is pretty darn good. 

5Dimes: Sportsbook Free-Play Reward

What, you didn't think we would leave existing bettors out of the fun, did you? 

5Dimes is offering a reload bonus for all current users worth 20 percent of your deposit. You investments must range between a minimum of $100 and a maximum of $2,500, as they are only offering to go up to $500 (i.e. 20 percent of $2,500) in free play rewards.

This free-play money, it should be noted, will be available in increments. You must bet through it five times before the entire thing becomes available to you. Another thing to note here: All of their rewards are being doled out manually, so you need to ask for them via live online help or over the phone within 24 hours of making your deposit.

MyBookie: 50 Percent Welcome Bonus (High Maximum)


Like many other online sportsbooks, MyBookie is offering a 50 percent welcome bonus for new users. However, unlike Bovada, they allow you to reap the benefits of this reward up $1,000, so you are getting comped for every initial dollar you invest up to $2,000.

MyBookie's rollover on this program is 10 times. If you throw in $2,000 at sign-up to get $1,000 in free-play money, you will need to make $10,000 worth of bets with that cash before you are able to make a withdrawal request. If and when you do satisfy that requirement, though, MyBookie promises some of the shortest payout times around—usually within to around 48 hours, depending on where you live.
