  • What Type of Online Sportsbook Free Bets are there in Indiana?

    Free Bet Sign Up Offers

    As the market grows in Indiana you can expect to find more and more free bet offers and welcome bonuses, for registering a new account at an online sportsbook. Below, are some examples and explanations of what types to expect and how they work. It is important to understand how each offer works and they will often be different from each other, and also so you understand how they work and how to make the most of them.


    Bet & Get Offers

    This is an offer where you have to make the first bet to get the bonus. hence Bet and get in that order. In most cases, this means that whatever the value of the first wager that you make, and the first event to be settled after completion, will be the bonus that you get. EG, the first wager you place and is settled was a stake of $100, you will get a $100 bonus or free bet to use on your next bet.

    With this type of bet, sometimes there will be a turnover requirement. Sometimes there will not be these criteria, so check the terms of conditions to make sure first. If you do have to make turnover before the bonus funds become cash, try to choose one with a low rollover rate. it will be easier to turn those free bets into real cash you can withdraw to your online banking method, or collect at the cash cage.

    Risk-Free Bets

    Risk-Free bets are mostly offered when you make your first wager and it loses. The stake of your first bet is then offered back as free bets of bonus funds to use on your next bet. Be aware that this offer requires you to LOSE your first bet. If your first wager wins and you make profit, you do not get this offer.

    If you can find a bet and get that offers the free bets regardless of whether that first wager wins or loses, this is the one to take


    There is some ambiguity in the term risk-free because if your first wager is a winner and you do not get the risk free bet at all, you will have risked real money to get the offer. The wording is very clever. But used wisely, you could have a very nice wager on a prop market, [if permitted] and stand to win a good sum, with the safety net of knowing you will get your stake back which could be wagered on a more probable outcome next time. Read the terms and conditions of these offers to understand if any rollover requirement is in place for the bonus funds.


    First Deposit Offers

    This is the most frequent and popular free bet welcome offers online sportsbook use to attract new customers. They are very simple offers in that whatever the value of your first deposit to your new account [to a maximum level] will be matched instantly by the sportsbook in the form of free bets or bonus funds.

    Again, sometimes these free bets will come with a turnover requirement before any profit becomes cash you can draw down from your account, so look for an offer that has no turnover criteria at all. As new Sportsbooks gain licenses in Indians, expect to see more and more sportsbooks making this type of offer to entice you as a customer. As always, read and fully understand the terms and conditions of the offer before making a commitment.


    No Deposit Offers

    No Deposit offers for Sportsbooks in New Jersey led the way in the early days but are withdrawn quite quickly after a certain number of new accounts have been gained. They become less and less available over time, so if you do see one available in Indiana they are worth jumping on as quickly as you can.

    No deposit offers do come with a caveat though, and that is to read and understand the terms and conditions fully. Often they are not as lucrative as they seem, with large rollover requirements of the value needed before any profit becomes withdrawable cash. The bigger the offer, usually means the bigger the turnover needed, and in turn, the harder it will be to retain any profit before the conditions are met.

    No Deposit offers remain a good option though as you can have a fully risk free experience of the sportsbook to see if you like it and would like to make it your online sportsbook of choice going forward
