BettingSitesOffers.com is a website set up to help keep track of UK licensed betting sites, as well as the offers that are up for grabs from them. There are numerous bookies and hundreds of offers up for grabs on any given day, which makes finding them (or rather, finding the good ones) a time consuming task. Our site does the hard work for you, making it easy as pie to pick a bookie to bet with or find an offer that tickles your fancy.
We also pass a critical eye over both the bookie and offer before listing a promo – meaning that everything you see on the site is worth claiming, and also from a reputable and trustworth website.
Q. Why the name?
It’s a bit of a play on words. We focus on Betting Sites and Betting Offers, so Betting Sites Offers made sense at the time.
Q. Are the betting sites / bookmakers you list legal?
Yes, if you’re in the UK. Every offer we list is from a bookmaker/betting site who holds a UK license as required by the rules set down by the UK Gambling Commission. This means it’s perfectly legal for people in the United Kingdom to bet with anyone seen on our site.
If you’re from another country, local laws may prohibit online betting – so if you’re not from Blighty make sure you check what is and isn’t legal in your area before betting.
Q. Are betting offers a scam?
Not the ones we list. Whilst some may sound a little too good to be true, which should set alarm bells ringing for the more cautious among you, in reality there’s nothing to be concerned about.
The most generous free bets are offered to new customers to incentivise you into signing up with a new account. After all if Bookie A and Bookie B both have similar websites and odds (on the surface) why would you choose site B over site A, or visa versa?
Sign up offers are a great way of getting you to register as a customer but they do tend to cost the bookmaker money – in marketing terms this is known as a “loss leader“. The bookie is hoping that you’ll stick around and keep betting with them, even after you’ve claimed the welcome offer.
Q. Do existing customer get offers too?
The better betting sites realise that once they have you signed up, they need to keep offering you incentives to stay with them. So on those sites, there are plenty of promotions available after you’ve claimed the welcome bonus.
Such promos aren’t going to be as generous as the one you received when registering for the first time, after all if the bookies gave you those kind of promos all the time they’d be out of business pretty quickly, but they definitely add value to your bets.
To draw comparisons to the regular high street, think of a welcome bonus as £20 off your first shop at the supermarket, whilst the ongoing offers are more like a buy-one-get-one-free offer. Not quite as valuable but still nice to have.
Bookies are always coming up with new and inventive promotions, but existing customer promotions tend to fit into one of the following categories:
- Odds enhancements – Short term price boosts on selected markets. Such as 5/1 instead of 4/1 on Manchester United to win the Premier League.
- Free bets – Bonus bets which are dished out by the bookie, either as a good will gesture (ie: for free) or after you have placed a qualifying bet or bets. For example: Place a pre-match bet on Chelsea v Sunderland and get a free in-play bet.
- Money back offers – This is the most common type of promotion and offers money back (often as a bonus) if your bet loses. Sometimes it’s as simple as that – a bonus if you lose – but other times a trigger needs to happen as well. So you might get money back onlosing first goalscorer bets if both teams score, or if the match ends 0-0.
Q. Are there any betting loyalty schemes?
Good question, give yourself a pat on the back. Yes – much like the supermarket gives you points everytime you shop, some bookies run loyalty reward programs that give free bets each month/week based on your activity with them. We cover these types of offer in this section.
Q. How do I contact you?
