The Betting Scene: Big Bonuses Return with Pro Sports

Pro sports are back and with this long awaited return comes the resumption of big bonuses at sportsbooks worldwide.

After sitting nearly idle for the last three-plus months, sportsbooks around the globe are quickly ramping up for the start of professional sports in the U.S. With the start of Major League baseball upon us and the reboot of the NBA and NHL in the coming days, it is looking like business is ready to boom in the sports betting world.

Large Bonuses Return

With the return of pro sports also comes the return of large incentives to sing-up and deposit at online sportsbooks. One of the top offers we have seen is coming from the BetPhoenix group, who has fired up an “NBA is Back” promotion of a 200% free play and with a deposit of $300 or more, an extra $25 in cash to get started at This offer is also available at teaser shop BetMania and long-standing operator Skybook.

Cash bonusesGTBets has one of the top cash bonus offers with 100% added up to $500 on a first deposit and 50% cash on the first redeposit, up to $250. Cash is also available from industry giant BookMaker, who is offering 100% cash for any initial deposit, up to $300, but only for players using Bitcoin. WagerWeb is offering a 100% cash bonus as well that can be used on anything - sports bets, casino games, live dealer, e-sports, sim sports, political bets and more!

Lower Rollover

And for players looking for some cash with a low rollover, Jazz Sports offers three levels of cash bonus, including a 10% cash bonus with just a 3X rollover and a 20% bonus with just a five time roll.

Free Plays

MyBookie fires a 100% free play with a 10X rollover and small rollers can get involved for as little as $45 and still take advantage of the offer. America’s Bookie takes choosing your own bonus to a new level with a 100% free play offer and the standard 10X rollover. But, players can pick bonuses in decreasing increments of 10% all the way down to a 30% bonus with just a 3X rollover.

New customers at BetOnline can grab a solid MLB 100% free play offer with code BOL1000. Then players can use their awesome reload offer, as long as it is before the end of the month. Using code MLBVIP100, existing players can grab a 50% free play on the next three deposits.

Time to Claim Loyalty Bonuses

This unique offer awarded any customers that simply maintained their balance a top up of 20% when pro sports returned. Though Heritage apparently pioneered this fantastic offer for loyal customers, BetOnline jumped on the bandwagon and gave a similar offer to players who stuck with them.

Simply put, its time to cash in on these bonuses with the return of MLB tomorrow and NBA and NHL right behind.
