Bet365.com has long been one of the largest gambling sites in the world. In fact, it’s so big that it’s one of the largest private employers in the UK. With a company this big, it should be no surprise that they have plenty of money to throw at promotions and bonuses for players.
The World Cup is always a big opportunity for sports betting sites and this year is no exception. Bet365 have already sent me several e-mails detailing their upcoming World Cup promos. Let’s take a look at what they have on offer this time around.
Note: Bet365 does not accept American customers. If you live in the United States and want to bet on the event, check out yesterday’s post here.
Bore Draw Money Back
Bet365 have enhanced their Bore Draw Money Back guarantee in anticipation of the 2014 World Cup. In short, you’ll get your bet refunded if you place any of the following types of bets and the match ends in a 0-0 draw:
- Correct score
- Halftime or fulltime winner
- Scorecast bets
- First, last and anytime goalscorer
If you place any of these wagers before the beginning of any World Cup matchup and the game ends with a final score of 0-0, you’ll be refunded the bet instead of awarded the loss. This is a huge value for punters as it effectively eliminates one of the potential scenarios for losing. You really should get on this one if you have any intention whatsoever of betting on any World Cup match.
Penalty Payback Offer
Similar to the above promotion, the Penalty Payback offer will refund all losing wagers if you place any outright win bet on a team and that team is eliminated on penalties. This is another great value-added promo that increases your expected value right off the top.
New Account Bonus
This promotion isn’t unique to the World Cup, but it’s worth a look if you don’t already have an account at Bet365. If you’re new to Bet365.com and sign up for an account, you’ll get an e-mail with a 10-digit offer code. Make your first deposit of $10 or more and you’ll get a 100% bonus worth up to $100.
What this means is Bet365 will double your first deposit. If you deposit $50 for example, you’ll get an extra $50 to go along with that. You can use this extra money to place more bets and win even more money. The thing to remember is that after you first sign up for your account, you need to check your e-mail for your unique bonus code.
