Mobile Betting Bonus: How Do They Work?



A mobile betting bonus is that little extra you get on your winnings when you place your bets using your smartphone. There are some bonuses that are specific to the computer. This means you can only enjoy or lay claim to these bonuses when you bet using your personal computer. In this case, mobile betting bonuses only apply when using your phone. This can be done either by visiting the betting company’s website through a mobile device or via an application. It is very unlikely, in fact almost impossible, to transfer a mobile bonus to a computer.

For websites, if you are browsing a betting site with a phone, the website is usually available in different versions. This is to cater to different classes of phones that users may be using. As previously stated, the company may have an application that can also be used to claim mobile bonuses.

To claim a mobile bonus, you need a bonus code. For some sport betting platforms, it is possible to get a bonus code even before you fund your account on the platform that is before you make a deposit. If this is the case, you can expect that particular site or platform to offer you more bonuses going forward. You should also look out for extra offers that may be available for betting on some particular days.

Also, bonuses may sometimes have a time frame when they are viable. The terms and conditions are expected to be clearly stated on the website or application.  Make sure you read them carefully. While some sites offer bonuses before you make deposits, other sites only offer bonus codes as add-ons when you place regular bets.

On some platforms, you may get mobile bonus codes that could be as high as a 100% match. In this case, you would most likely need to be a registered user of the platform. If not, you can open an account. You should be aware that wagering requirements will apply regardless of the kind of betting you are doing; either casino or sports betting.  Always remember that wagering terms are the same even if your bonus is being used in the casino section that is on live casino games.

While most of the bets you will place will have low odds, you can spread your bet slip and make it cover a wider range of options. For instance, instead of simply placing sports bets, you can venture into slots and poker. This can only make your mobile bonus better. This may not necessarily apply to you if you love taking bigger risks by placing your bets on games with higher odds.

If you have other bonuses active on your account, you can combine such with your regular mobile bonus. Such additional bonuses may include a first time bonus or some other extras added by the betting site owners. Having said this, it is important for you to check the terms and conditions for each platform.

If your chosen platform does not give allowance for using more than one bonus offer at a time, you can schedule your usage of these codes so that you can maximize them. In general, however, the majority of the betting sites allow their users to combine up to three bonus offers at a time.

Here’s an example: A sports betting platform offers free $50 bets on Wednesdays and also give out 50% bonuses to first-time customers. This means that if you make your first ever bet on that platform on a Wednesday, you may be eligible for both promotional offers, depending on the site’s policies. On a larger scale, this is quite a generous offer. Once again, endeavor to go through the terms and conditions of each betting website or application before signing up or opening an account.

If you are a novice to mobile bonuses, there are some potential pitfalls you need to avoid. At times there may be some regulations which can prevent you from laying a claim to some available bonuses.

The method of transfer is one of the very common issues that some people usually have when claiming bonuses. For instance, say there is a rule that you have to make a deposit before you can claim a particular promotional offer, and because you are in a hurry, you use a deposit method that does not require a bank transfer. Depending on the site’s stated terms and conditions, you may still not have access to the bonus because of your method of deposit. In essence, it is important that you read the site’s regulations carefully to ascertain the acceptable methods of deposit when you want to use a bonus.

For some sites, there are minimum requirements. However, the minimum requirement for signing up on the platform may be lower or higher than the minimum balance required to qualify for a bonus. Sometimes, especially for the “not so good” betting sites, this may not be very clearly stated at the start of the process, so you may find yourself still short of the minimum requirement even after you have made an initial deposit that meets the signup minimum.

Online bookies place maximum limits on their match bonuses. Players in the United Kingdom who are interested in sports betting may often find that a bookmaker will not give a 100% match bonus for more than £100. The maximum varies with each provider. This means if you are a high roller, you will need to take this into consideration.

If you place big bets, you should be aware that you may not enjoy some bonuses. This is because some betting platforms put a cap on the betting amount that that their promotional offers apply to. Although the maximum value can be higher or lower with different platforms, most times, the limit is placed on high bonuses like the 100% match bonus.

Sometimes, the limit can be a bit flexible, in that the bonus may reduce when the amount goes beyond a certain level. For instance, a 100% bonus may be reduced to a 50% bonus when the bettor is placing a bet of more than $50,000.
