Now is the perfect time to start building up your betting bankroll. Why? Because the sports betting calendar is about to start getting heavy with the return of college football and the ever-popular NFL betting. Plus, the MLB playoff race is also heating up and the start of the NBA regular season is right around the corner too. If you need to stack cash in a hurry, there’s no better option than lucrative sportsbook bonuses — like the ones offered at BetNow. There’s three promos running right now at BetNow that you need to get on in August:
BetNow’s Sign-Up Bonus Is Tripling In Value
Across the online sportsbook marketplace, sign-up bonuses are consistently consistent. By that, we mean every single bookie offers one and this deal stays up in the same exact capacity almost year-round. Changes to sign-up promos are rare, but that’s EXACTLY what we have on our hands at BeNow in August.
BetNow has increased its match-percentage on the sign-up bonus from 50 percent to 150 — a 3X increase, which means this isn’t a small change. This new deal went into effect in August 15 and as far as we can tell, it’s here to stay for the near-term future at the very least.
The deal is broken up into two. First is a 50-percent free play deal, then there’s a 100-percent cash bonus. The former deal can be maxed out at just $150 and also only lasts seven days. This makes it perfect for new players who want to “test” a bookmaker without overcommitting with their own deposit. The dollar-for-dollar bonus tops out at $300 and does come with a somewhat hefty 15X rollover.
This new sign-up bonus is an improvement over BetNow’s former deal. Before, the site offered bettors a free-play match of 50 percent for as much as $500. That deal was one of the weaker ones among the major sportsbooks so it’s good to see BetNow “leveling up.”
NFL Contest Offering Big Money Week-To-Week
The first NFL regular season game is September 8, pitting the Super Bowl-defending Rams and Bills against one another. Before this, you’ll want to join BetNow’s “King of the Hill” contest. That is, if you care to win a whopping $20,000 grand prize by the conclusion of the regular season.
This contest is essentially just a pick ‘em game. You know, pick the winning team — straight up, not spreads — in every single game for all 18 weeks of the NFL season. Every pick you get right is worth a single point. Whoever has the most points accumulated by the end of the season becomes the King of the Hill, oh, and $20,000 richer.
Obviously, finishing in first will be no easy task. But there’s plenty more money to be made off of this BetNow contest. For instance, players that finish from second to 30th in the overall standings at year’s end will share $30,000 in cash prizes. There’s also the $10,000 weekly prize. This sum can be won strictly by going perfect in a given week (plus guessing the tiebreaker right too). The $10,000 prize is available all 18 weeks of the season.
If you want in on King of the Hill and all the money that comes with it, you must sign up for the contest by September 8. Only one contest entry is allowed per account. Speaking of which, the account has to be “active.” Active in BetNow’s book means accounts that bet at least two times a week during the entire NFL regular season. Re-read the last sentence closely because BetNow will NOT credit pick ‘em points from inactive accounts.
BetNow certainly isn’t the only site that offers an NFL picking contest. However, what we will say is few bookies match the prize value of BetNow. King of the Hill really doesn’t skimp on prizes and that’s to your great benefit.
Don’t Forget About BetNow’s Casino
BetNow has an impressive casino. If you’ve read our unbiased BetNow review, you know the platform is loaded to the brim with games — everything from slots to table games to live dealer. The casino is a great fallback option while you wait for football season to officially start, or heck, even early-morning betting action before afternoon sports games.
Here’s a casino-only deal that’ll sweeten the deal: BetNow offers a 10-percent rebate to ALL casino players. This refund is offered every single week on Mondays (by 12 pm EST). Only casino losses will be accounted for in the rebate process. So say you had a net loss of $80 in the casino from Monday to Sunday. This means you’ll be credited $8 back that Monday.
While we’d love for the rebate to cover all casino bets made, it’s not uncommon for these deals to apply to losses only. That’s just about how every competing site does this deal, but what we will say is that BetNow’s 10-percent rebate is on the high side. It’s certainly worth exploring when you have downtime from sports wagering.
