Bally Bet Sportsbook is up and running in Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Indiana, New York, and Virginia. Look for that list to continue growing in the coming months. Bally Bet is offering new users a $100 free bet to register a new account with the online sportsbook.
Bally’s put together a few major deals toward the end of 2020, signaling a commitment to sports betting in the future. First, Twin Rivers was rebranded as Bally’s, and then the newly rebranded company bought BetWorks, a sports betting platform that will help create the Bally Bet app for iOS and Android products.
If all that wasn’t enough, Bally’s and Sinclair Broadcast Group agreed to rename 21 Fox regional sports networks, which will now be called Bally’s Sports.
The Bally Bet welcome bonus isn’t the biggest you’ll find at just $100. However, the positive is that you don’t have to make a deposit in order to claim the bonus. Just sign up and a $100 free bet will be added to your Bally Bet account.
So, if Bally Bet is going to compete with other top sportsbooks, it likely will want to come up with a welcome offer of risk-free bets. Most risk-free bet offers are for your first settled bet with an online sportsbook, not the first bet you place.
For example, let’s say you made your first bet on a Monday night NFL game, and then you made another for a game on the Sunday before. That Sunday game would end first. Thus it would be your first settled bet. Then, the way the offer works is this: If your wager wins, nothing changes, and in essence, you don’t actually get anything extra. If, on the other hand, your wager loses, you receive a refund for your losses up to a pre-set amount. The refund almost always takes the form of a bet credit, not cash. So if you lose, you will need to make another bet of the same size within seven to 14 days, or the free bet will expire.
Deposit matches: Another popular welcome offer is the deposit match. You receive additional money in your account based on the amount of your first deposit. Just like with risk-free bets, these are capped at a certain amount. One of the big things to pay attention to is at what percent your deposit is matched. If it’s 100%, you will be matched dollar for dollar up to the maximum, while other sportsbooks can be as low as 20%.
Join bonuses are among the rarest perks you will see and are usually pretty small. With join bonuses, you receive free bets for around $20 to $30 just for signing up. While the amount of money you get is small, the fact that all you have to do is sign up is pretty great. And there’s always a chance to turn that $20 to $30 into a lot more.
