Typically, top-rated sportsbooks do not offer large bonuses. They let the quality and reliability of their service do the talking. Scam sportsbooks routinely offer bonuses of 100%+, because they never intend on allowing players to cash out.
The opening period of a new football season is the only exception, where top-rated books will sometimes open up their wallets to attract new players and reengage past clients. This year, Bovada launches a shot across the bows of the rest of the industry by offering their players an unprecedented 100% signup bonus!
Bovada has always had a competitive 50% signup bonus, but this is the first time I’ve ever seen them double that amount. If you’re looking for a solid book with a pristine history of paying players, while offering the most variety of betting options, sign up for Bovada.
Even if you already have an account with another book, it’s a good idea to have 3-4 accounts with other sports betting sites so you can shop lines and take advantage of promotions.
