The sport of Mixed Martial arts continues to grow at an exponential rate and while the bookmakers had been slow in terms of listing offers and promotions, all that is starting to change. With UFC nights taking centre stage, there is more interest in MMA than ever before and we now start to enjoy a host of deals from around the sportsbooks.
At the heart of those incentives are enhanced odds and price boost promos. They are available for most big fight nights so let’s get straight on and see what we can expect.
Enhanced odds deals can generally be split into two sections with some offers only available to new customers. This is a bonus available on sign up and it will typically look at a big headlining battle – usually for a UFC Championship belt.
Sportsbooks can approach these deals in one of two ways: They may take the favourite in the match up and lift their odds on win price to something much longer such as 33/1 or even more. Alternatively, a bookmaker such as 888Sport would perhaps look at both fighters and offer a price boost on either of them. Customers would then need to select between the two opponents and pick which of the two offers they prefer.
The prices involved here can be very generous but it’s important to understand that there will be some terms involved. A fixed stake of between £1.00 and £5.00 is likely to apply while customers should expect to see the enhanced part of the profits paid out as free bet tokens.
Terms and conditions should therefore be checked in full but there is definite potential for value from this type of enhanced MMA new customer offer.
Once signed up with a bookmaker, it’s perfectly possible for the MMA price boosts to continue. Now that you are on board, the increases may be much smaller but that is balanced by the fact that we will see far fewer restrictions.
For example, a bookie such as Betway or William Hill might spot an upcoming UFC fight and offer a price boost of one point on one of the two fighters to win it. Alternatively, they may devise a multiple using two bouts on the same bill and lift the figures a little higher.
Those numbers may not sound interesting but it’s important to remember the respective lack of terms. There’s unlikely to be a maximum stake beyond any limit stated under general terms and conditions while punters can expect all profits to be paid in cash with no free bet tokens to get in the way.
While those are general points, they are typical of the terms and conditions that you find for this type of offer. You can, of course, check all of the ts and cs for yourself while we will also look to bring you the best of these MMA price boosts as they come in.
We’ve already mentioned some bookies in this round up but there are plenty of others who are starting to list MMA enhanced odds deals. 888Sport are particularly active across all sporting markets but we can also add SportNation, SportPesa, Ladbrokes and Coral to that list.
In regards to regular price boosts for existing customers, William Hill and Betway are frequently joined by Ladbrokes, SportNation, Winner Sports and many more. As far as frequency is concerned, there was a time when the bookies were focussing on notorious fighters such as Conor McGregor. In the present day, however, that is changing to include UFC big names including Jon Jones, Max Holloway, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Cris Cyborg and Ronda Rousey.
This is one sport where offers are growing so, while we’ve given you some typical examples of bookies and the types of enhanced odds MMA promotions that they provide, there will be more of these landing in the weeks and months that lie ahead. Remember to check them out by logging on to your existing website and checking for daily price boosts.
