Best Online Bookmakers: Bonuses & Free Bets!

best-online-bookmakers-free-betsAt we are focused only on the best and more reliable online bookmakers.

Here you can find all important information about the selected bookies - reviews, bonuses, free bets and promotions.

Free Bets are a great way to give a boost to your online betting and nearly all bookmakers offer such bonuses.

And if you take sports betting seriously, you need more than one bookmaker to improve the odds you receive on every game or tie.

The best online bookmakers are:





Bet365 - the betting champion!

So what exactly did bet365 do to attract more than 9 million customers worldwide?

Let’s start with the best odds. bet365 earned a reputation in the market for having the best prices and widest variety of betting markets. bet365’s reputation for great odds goes well beyond continental Europe. In Las Vegas, for example, Cantor Gaming compares its odds to bet365’s prices in its interactive sports betting product in Las Vegas sportsbooks in an effort to show how good their prices are. When Cantor’s product debuted, bet365 was the only online sportsbook whose prices were listed in the odds comparison feature.

bet365 has also earned the trust of the market. It accepts more than a dozen different payment options for players. Money flows in and out of the bet365 system smoothly. They pay players quickly and efficiently, and they have a very trustworthy reputation.

bet365 also understands that acquiring customers is only part of the battle. They are dedicated to making customers feel valued and are therefore expert in retaining them. They are constantly looking for new and interesting ways to keep customers playing with bet365. Whether it’s iPad raffle drawings at the bet365 casino, a price promise for horse racing, or a vacation bonus for bingo, or any of the other many retention bonuses and offers, week in and week out bet365 has a myriad of offers that keep players wanting to come back.

Finally, bet365 truly embraces innovation. bet365 was at the forefront of in-play betting. It understood that betting did not have to stop at the beginning of the game. It understood that players, with access to the Internet, would want to bet on a multitude of live markets while play was going on.

bet365 then married its comprehensive in-play betting offering with the live streaming of more than 40,000 sporting events. Punters are much more likely to bet on events they can watch. So even smaller sports can generate action, and revenue, if they’re being “televised” on the Internet. bet365 is also at the forefront of mobile Live Streaming, with the most competitive mobile live streaming available in the market today.

bet365’s innovative streak extends beyond the sportsbook. In addition to the traditional (RNG) online casino, bet365 also offers live dealer games. bet365 also took the decision some years back to offer their customers unparalleled choice when it came to casino games. To that extent, bet365 provides games from not one, not two, but 29 different software providers, all offering the latest in cutting edge casino and games entertainment.

Finally, bet365’s one-wallet solution allows players to deposit once, and use that money to wager throughout its suite of products. We should mention too that bet365 is available in 17 languages.

In many ways, bet365’s formula for success seems simple. Build a brand players trust. Offer the best odds. Offer the best sports product. Offer good games. Offer choice. Offer good bonuses. Pay customers when they win.

But it’s not that simple. Very few companies have succeeded in building trust and success amongst customers. But bet365 has. And they did it by doing things the right way, and embracing innovation, and relationships with customers.

19-year-old Norwegian Wins Millions on Sports!

Winning Bets
A 19-year-old from Trondheim, Norway, proved this week that Unibet players can hit the jackpot even outside their Casino. Eleven selections in nine slips from their Sportsbook, all of which were correct, granted him 2.9 million NOK (approximately €350,000).

And the happy winner and fresh millionaire had a good reason to choose Unibet when he started to bet on sports online:

“I am 19 years old, so relatively fresh in regards to betting… Many of my friends were betting with Unibet so I signed up with them as well. At Unibet I can get higher odds, and also play higher stakes, so it was perfect for me.”

The customer won over €200,000 in one day on Sunday, with a selection of combinations across different sports and leagues. The highest combination in terms of odds was a stake of 100 NOK (€12.04) being turned into 464,093.47 NOK (€55,901.18).

“Sunday evening when all of the slips except one were settled, I started to think about the big winning. I have decided that I will buy a house with the money.”

But the winner’s luck wasn’t over as it continued into the beginning of this week with every single remaining game going the right way as well.

Don’t forget that Unibet Sportsbook, besides countless pre-match markets, will also offer over 105,000 live events and over 28,000 streamed events in 2014.

Swedish woman wins the jackpot on Mega Fortune!

Mega Fortune

Yet another fantastic story from Unibet Casino as they once again had a part in making one of their casual players very happy.

In the evening on March 12 a women from Kronoberg in Sweden turned 2.50 SEK (€0.25) into 1.6 million (approximately €180,000) by playing Mega Fortune in Unibet’s Casino.

"I thought that something was wrong. It’s insane. I’m still shaking," commented the big winner who chose to remain anonymous.

It was 22.30 Wednesday evening when the 45-year old woman turned 2.50 SEK into 1 639 074 SEK on Mega Fortune after a short time on her computer. The day after the jackpot win, it’s a tired winner with a shaky voice that answers the telephone when Unibet reaches her.

"This win is coming in very handy. It feels like my prayers have been heard, but I still think something is wrong, this is insane!"

With the winnings she is planning to pay off her house loan and buy a self-propelled lawn mower.

"I’ve previously said to my sons that 'if I win big, I will buy you a trip', and that is what I will do. I’ll take them somewhere further away than Denmark this time as they have never been in an airplane before."
