Betting offers – What to watch out for

Internet betting sites have gained tremendous popularity over the years.

There are now thousands of betting sites on the Internet. This can sometimes be overwhelming when you are looking to select a site to place a bet with. It’s crucial to understand that the quality, reliability and value that each site offers vary greatly. These should be the key factors that you consider when choosing which betting site to use. Most importantly, never assume that the biggest offers or freebies are the best, always read the terms and conditions carefully. The value of the offers that they are advertising is more important than the size of the promotion or free bet.

One of the most important things to consider is the wagering requirements that come with betting sites offers. Wagering requirements refer to the numbers of times that you have to wager the bonus money before you are allowed to take your winnings. This is most easily understood by comparing two offers:

Offer A: A site offers you a £50 bonus, which you have to wager 20 times

Offer B: A site offers you a £40 bonus, which you have to wager 10 times.

Our minds are trained to favour big numbers, so at an initial glance you may think that offer A is the better deal. However, it’s actually more likely that you are able to meet the wagering requirements of the second offer and make a profit! Don’t be tricked by large numbers.

Alternatively, some betting websites give you awards based on a percentage of how much you have wagered during the previous month/week. You might be thinking the higher the percentage, the more well off you will be. However, this is certainly not always the case. A betting site may require you wager more times than those sites that offer you a lower percentage reward. Always choose the betting site that allows you to take your winnings the quickest and easiest way. The longer you are forced to play with your money, the greater
chance you have of losing it all!

Lastly, a factor that sometimes even the most experienced bettors fail to check is the size of the maximum payout available on the website. For example if the maximum payout offered is £100 you shouldn’t be placing large bets for such a little return in money! Always check their payout range before placing your bet.

So always consider the above factors when choosing which company to trust your money with.
