The Bookee sportsbook is only accessible via the app service but for those who like to bet in the traditional way, we would urge you to take a look at them. One of the reasons for this is their range of price boosts which can give a significant lift on odds that are already competitive.
Here’s a guide as to how they have worked in the past and a round up of what we can expect to see in the future.
Bookee Enhanced Offers
The majority of these offers are aimed at new customers and once you’ve downloaded the app, there tends to be at least one of these available at any given time. They have followed a typical pattern here in the sense that they take one of two opponents and lift their price quite considerably.
For example, for the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder fight in December 2018, Bookee increased the price on Fury to win from an industry best of 8/5 to 25/1. At the same time, a separate offer on leaders Manchester City to win the Premier League was available. City were a general 1/4 in the open markets but the Bookee enhanced price was 10/1 on this occasion.
Daily price boosts don’t tend to drop in for those that already have an account but we do find that Bookee’s odds are often up there with the best for most markets.
Football tends to dominate the list of enhanced odds offers for new customers but as we’ve already seen, Bookee can diversify and head into other sports. The boxing boost for Wilder v Fury is a a good example and we could look forward so some Bookee enhanced odds whenever a big event such as this comes along.
On a week-to-week basis, football offers should be available on most days but if you want to wait for other options, it shouldn’t take long for alternatives to drop in.
In line with most enhanced odds offers for new customers, the main point to note is that any profits are to be paid in two parts. An initial sum arrives in cash, based on Bookee’s standard market odds while the balance follows as free bet tokens.
Fixed stakes also apply and in the main, these have been set at £1.00. We have, however, seen one promotion come with a £2.00 fixed sum so it’s a case of checking each deal as it comes in. Terms are always subject to change but this is what we’ve seen to date and it’s likely to be carried on into the future.
Things are kept very simple in terms of banking because Bookee only have a small set of options. Anyone looking to get on board here can therefore use any of the main debit or credit cards.
There are no eWallet providers on the list at present and while that could change in the future, we know that most sportsbooks exclude these funding methods in relation to this type of promotion
Bookee has been described as the ‘Tinder of betting’ as it works in a similar way to the dating app. Customers are shown a sequence of bets and they either swipe left or right depending on whether or not they want to take it up.
It is, however, possible to just use this like a conventional bookmaker by searching through a list of sports and finding the event and market that you want. It can be dismissed as being ‘gimmicky’ but that’s a shame because there are excellent prices here and they can compete on most sports, particularly football.
The theme with Bookee enhanced offers seems to be quality over quantity. There hasn’t been much in the way of daily price boosts for existing players but the new customer offers are quite frequent.
Some of the more ‘certain’ bets carry smaller increases of 10/1 but these can frequently jump to 25/1 and higher for riskier punts so there is choice. A range of sports is covered so, for anyone looking to sign up and look beyond a generic welcome deal, there are plenty of alternatives.
- Generous price boosts in some instances up to 25/1
- Range of sports available – not just limited to football
- Some boosts are relatively small at 10/1
- Currently no regular price boosts for existing players
