THE explosion of internet betting and online bookmakers has guaranteed an equally impressive burst of betting promotions. Each is designed to give the predictor / punter the chance to bet for free using a series of innovative online betting promotions.
Premier League football, Test match cricket and rugby, grand slam tennis events and the looming London Olympics will mean betting promotions will, as they always have been, be bountiful.
Indeed, as one sports betting writer commented: "There has never been a better time to investigate the best betting promotions available to reward predictions. In fact, with the Premier League careering to its denouement, the national obsession with football can be matched with free bets from an online bookmaker offering a variety of best betting promotions.
"Multi-layered predictions on a round of Premier League matches, for example, is a perfect area for betting promotions. Punters should make use of their free bet , often made available as part of the most interesting betting promotions. In fact, most online betting promotions are worthy of further consideration as they provide punters with the opportunity to test a market or a sport without risking their grubstake.
"It pays to compare the betting promotion market well before committing to a wager. With an attractive summer of sport looming a betting promotion can be used for any number of great events throughout 2011 and into the Olympics next year when the betting promotions on offer from internet only online bookmakers will be on the rise.
"Utilising a betting promotion can be a great introduction to the world on online betting and gives punters a great chance to reap the rewards for their predictions.
“However, punters shouldn’t place a bet simply because to do so qualifies them for a benefit from betting promotion x or y. They should turn this on its head – first find the sport upon which they want to bet and then find the best betting promotion to match it.”
