To enhance betting odds is to intensify, increase or further improve the quality, value or extent of an existing price offer. Usually, they are offered on very one-sided matches where the odds for the favourite are very short.
The best football betting sites will be ramping up their promotions ahead of and during the delayed European football championships in 2021, which takes places across Europe rather than in a single country.
To encourage you to register for a new account and install the betting app, enhanced odds offers are a common promotion, providing much bigger odds to bet with than would normally be available.
Enhanced odds offer example
England plays Croatia in their first game at Wembley stadium. They are currently 1.91 to win the game.
Several bookmakers will likely offer enhanced odds on the game to try to gain your betting business.
Your initial thought might be to go with Bookmaker C who is offering 20/1 on the same bet as Bookmakers A & B
However, as with all bookmaker offers, you should check the full terms and conditions, You might be better off betting with Bookmaker B if the conditions are not in your favour.
Todays' enhanced odds
The enhanced odds are usually available for upcoming games within a few days of the available offer. It is often for a big televised event and limited to a specific betting market such as Full-time result or for one team to score at least one goal.
Are enhanced odds worth it?
The most important aspect as to whether an enhanced odds offer bet is worth it or not is dependant on whether you would've made a bet at normal odds or not in the first instance.
If the bookmaker making the offer is also one that has been a consideration for installing their betting app, and this is the incentive you need to push you over the edge, and the risk is low, then taking the enhanced odds are worth it.
Always keep in mind the full terms and conditions of the enhanced odds offer. Understand that in most cases, any winnings gained from the bet are usually paid in free bets, bonus credits and the like and are not instantly withdrawable as cash.
You will have to bet those bonus credits again, under a set of criteria, maybe several times before it becomes withdrawable cash. Often the offers are not as good as they first appear.
But if you are happy to make a £10 deposit, and get a odds of 20/1 and what might normally be a 1/2 bet, and then use the free credits for further betting entertainment, an enhanced odds offer to register for a new account on a betting site, could be considered worth it.
