Today's Betting Promotions

The majority of bookmakers run daily promotions and specials.

Football is the most popular sport for punters, so you will find that these make up the majority of the promotions. Other sports, including rugby, cricket, horse racing, golf, tennis, and more, also have promotions, but these are less common than football promotions.

Bookies will also run big promotions ahead of major events, so when a World Cup or major horse race is on the horizon, always be on the lookout for promotions and specials.

The same can be said of big football matches. When Kaizer Chiefs play Orlando Pirates or Manchester United take on Liverpool, bookies love to entice punters by promoting massive bets. This includes things like an enhanced bet of Liverpool to win at 4/1 for new customers or goalscorer bets much higher than the original odds for existing punters.

South African Bookmaker Free Bets

Bookmakers use all the tactics mentioned above to draw in new punters.

One which hasn't been mentioned is matching your first deposit when you create a new account. The first deposit free bet only applies up to certain amounts - and that differs from bookmaker to bookmaker.

You should always look for the best bookie in terms of their maximum free bet, as well as the terms involved. The majority require you to use your free bet on a single bet, while others are a bit more flexible and allow you to use it for an accumulator.

Enhanced Odds Promotions

Who doesn't want to get odds on Liverpool to win a match at 4/1 rather than 5/10?

Enhanced bets are promoted by bookies to try and get existing customers betting and to sign up new punters for their respective sites.

Enhanced bets are heavily promoted by bookies and run for a short period of time - usually a few days leading up to a match or tournament.

Some examples of enhanced bets include:

  • New customers get the Springboks at 20/1 to win the Rugby World Cup
  • All customers get Kaizer Chiefs at 4/1 to beat Orlando Pirates
  • New customers get the Proteas at 7/1 to win their Test series in Australia

Bookies sometimes pay the winnings on enhanced bets out as free bets, so always check the terms and conditions of any promotion before placing your bet.
