Today, perhaps more than ever, the gambling industry is willing to give money away to new customers in order to get them to sign up. Whatever site you’re thinking of joining you’ll find there’s free cash available. And if there is free cash up for grabs, and you’re going to spend money on gambling anyway, why not take advantage of these offers?
For example, if you enjoy casino games like roulette or blackjack, you’ll find that every casino sites offers new players a welcome bonus when they first make a deposit. On some sites the bonus level can be up to 200% or more, depending on how much money you first put down. It’s a way of getting us to spend more, of course, but as long as you are sensible with the amount of your own money that you put in, you can really increase the ‘bang in your gambling buck’ by cashing in on these kinds of bonuses. £30 will go much further than the original £10 you were planning to put in.
And if you enjoy having a bet on the horse racing or other sporting events like the World Cup or Wimbledon, there are always free bets to be had when you join a betting site too. For example, at Betfair at the moment, new customers who place a pre-match Sportsbook bet on any of the World Cup quarter-finals will have their bet refunded as a free bet if the game goes to extra time. And on top of that, Betfair is offering another free £50 matched bet which can be placed at any time. If you’re going to be watching France vs Germany on Friday this week, you may as well have a free bet on the match to keep things interesting. Mind you, if the game’s anything like the quarter-final between the same two countries in 1982 – an epic which led to the first penalty shoot-out in World Cup history – it should make for pretty interesting viewing with or without a bet on!
For those people who like to place sports bets as much as they enjoy playing gambling games online, the best solution is to find a site that offers a bit of everything, with a choice of games and a sports book as well. While you could in theory get better value out of opening a number of casino and betting sites accounts and taking all the bonuses you can, it becomes far too complicated keeping track of your spending that way. Far better to adopt a cleaner approach and have one account for all your gaming and betting spends in one place.
The golden rule to remember when gambling, of course, is that you shouldn’t play with money you can’t afford to live without. And if you can keep that in mind, you can’t go too far wrong.
