When it comes to spotting an esports bonus that offers good value there are a number of things you need to look out for. Here are three factors that should influence your choice of bookie.
1. Good range of esports offered
Obviously this should go without saying, but if you are an esports fan looking for a good bookie they need to offer a good selection of esports. While some mainstream bookies (see Betway Esports and Bet365 Esports) offer a good range of esports markets, other mainstream operators have a much more limited selection available. Esports specialist bookies like GG.Bet or even Unikrn might be better if you just want to bet on esports and are not interested in betting on any other sports.
2. The esports betting bonus offers good value
A bonus should always be worth claiming, in terms of the value that it offers you. At the very least, you need to be picking up extra bets or bonus credit that is equivalent to what you have deposited in your account. Bonuses that are only paid out if your first bet loses need to be treated with caution, as you can often end up gaining nothing from them at all.
3. No complicated wagering requirements
It is also a good idea to check the terms and conditions that apply to a bonus to see what the wagering requirements are. Although wagering requirements are usually applied to casino bonuses, they are sometimes still in place for sports betting bonuses too. Basically, wagering requirements demand that you wager your bonus credit a certain amount of times, often as many as 15x the original bonus amount. This can take a long time and make claiming the bonus a very onerous and tedious process. Again, always make sure you check the terms and conditions before you sign up for any esports betting welcome bonuses and promotions.
