We know that enhanced offers can really give you some extra value around the sportsbooks but who are the big players when it comes to this type of deal? Here is a round up of the bookies involved and what you can expect from each one.
888 are perhaps the most active of the bookmakers in terms of these enhanced odds offers so how do they work? Firstly, it’s important to note that they are almost exclusively for new customers only and we have yet to see a deal listed for existing account holders.
The price boosts can be very generous indeed with recent examples lifting some odds from 15/2 to 28/1 and 2/5 to 5/1. These deals all require you to open an account and deposit at least £10.00. Bets must be made between £5.00 and £10.00, winnings on the standard book price are credited to your account and the profit from the boost will be issued as a free bet token.
Another real positive is that 888sport tend to list these at least two days in advance and there can also be longer term boosts such as the deal quoted for Michael Van Gerwen to win the world darts in 2017. This was on offer some weeks ahead of the tournament itself.
Once again, Coral list their enhanced odds for new customers but these work in a slightly different way to those of 888sport. Here, the change in prices can be very generous indeed and on the day that we checked – 14/12/2016 – the price for Manchester City to beat Watford had been boosted from odds on to an incredible 28/1.
One significant point to note with a typical Coral offer is that you can only stake a maximum of £1.00 or currency equivalent. All winnings are paid out in free bets here so while there may be more restrictions, you can get much higher prices.
Coral will also list a choice of matchday boosts for football for existing customers but the increases here will be far more modest. A price of 2.00 may, for example, lift to 3.00. Not much notice is given here with same day deals being typical but you can occasionally get those longer term options on major events.
While Winner like to get on board with enhanced odds deals they are also a little different to what we have seen so far. With their deals, they will focus on football and pick three or four teams from the upcoming fixture schedule and if all three win, the book price is increased.
These are for all customers so once again, the figures involved are more modest but they are definitely worth a look. For midweek fixtures on 14/12/2016, a treble on Derby, Newcastle and Nottingham Forest would bring in a very healthy 10.00.
Ladbrokes’ enhanced odds offers are also different in the sense that if you lose your bet, it will be refunded as a free bet token. Deals for new customers therefore involve slightly shorter odds but there is definite value here too with an Even Money price perhaps lifting to somewhere around the 7.00 mark.
This is another promotion where a win at the standard book price will be credited to your account while anything extra comes as a free bet and again, there is not much notice with same day offers being quite typical. Both teams to score, a certain player to score and a team to win by at least two goals are common offers among the Ladbrokes football markets.
Fun88’s enhanced odds offers don’t come around quite as often as other bookmakers but when they do they are worth looking into. Again, the majority of these are for new customers with smaller price lifts but they are quick and easy to get hold of and provide some top value as you get your account up and running.
One offer that we found is typical of the type issued by Fun88. It listed Diego Costa at a boosted price of 4/1 as an anytime goal scorer for Chelsea against Leicester and the book price, which would have been just above Evens, would have been credited to the new player’s account with the enhanced balance issued as a free bet token.
Paddy will always look to get involved with the popular promos and for enhanced odds deals, they have made them very simple indeed. Focussing on the football markets you can either get an enhanced single or a boosted multi but in all cases we found, you are just betting on sides to win.
These can be for both new and existing players and the most significant term to note here is that there is a maximum stake of £10.00. For those reasons, the price increases are small compared to others on this list but once again, they represent decent value.
ComeOn’s enhanced odds deal is a familiar one but there is just one little twist. These will typically be for new customers with a stake of £10.00 and price lifts are on the medium side with something around 1.50 going up to 7.00.
Here, all winnings are paid in free bet tokens and if you go on to stake again at £10.00 on odds of 1.5 or higher, you can claim another free stake.
BetBright – Closed Bookmaker
Last on this particular list is BetBright who are similar in the way they operate to Winner Sports. A series of football matches is taken from the current fixture list and if all teams win, you can claim a higher profit.
Typical price boosts might see a figure climb from 9/2 to 11/2 or 11/4 to 10/3 so they are quite small but are open to all customers with any profits going straight to your account.
Naturally you should check all terms and conditions to make sure you are happy and over the following months we will highlight the best of these deals for you. There is great value to be claimed here so make sure you keep watching to get involved with some excellent enhanced offers.
