Offers from online sportsbooks can often seem to run together, as different casinos go out of their way to match the creative new promotion a competitor comes up with. BetRivers seems to be leading the way when it comes to creativity, however. Here’s a look at some of the fun BetRivers offers.
BetRivers’ headline-grabbing offer is one that can be found at other sportsbooks as well, but it is certainly enough to lure new users through the front door. The book is offering to match a new user’s first deposit up to $250. There is a 1X play-through requirement. The bonus money can be used on sports bets or casino games.
Once you’re in the door, BetRivers offers some opportunities you won’t find everywhere. Here’s a rundown of some of the fun:
1. Profit Boost Days
There are a number of sports you can wager on at BetRivers, and each one has its own specific day when a profit boost is offered. For example, golf offers a profit boost on Sundays. If you make a bet on a golf event on Sunday, your winnings will earn an additional 20 percent.
For the NBA, Tuesday bets earn the additional 20 percent profit boost. For NCAA basketball, you get the boost for Thursday games. And for the NHL, you get the bump on Fridays.
2. Fine Print
Both the bet amount and winnings are capped for this promotion. The maximum bet amount is $25, and winnings are capped at $250. There are also requirements on odds. The bet must have odds of -200 or longer to qualify (i.e. -100, +150, etc.). Finally, the profit boost winnings must be used within 24 hours or they expire.
3. In-Person Profit Boost
In selected states, BetRivers also offers a significant bonus if you attend a game in person. For instance, in Pennsylvania, you can get a 50 percent profit boost if you attend a home Philadelphia Flyers or Pittsburgh Penguins NHL game.
Uses must log in from the game to qualify. The profit boost is listed as available for NHL betting, so it’s not clear if the bet has to be on the game you are actually attending or not.
The profit boost has the same caps and requirements as the daily 20 percent boost. There’s a max bet of $25 and winnings are capped at $250. Bets must have odds of -200 or longer, and the boost must be used within 24 hours.
4. Jai Alai
It’s not a promotion or offer, but BetRivers also sets itself apart as the exclusive home for Magic City Jai-Alai betting. Games take place on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday of each week, and there are individual, doubles, and team matches available for wagers.
