It's probably the time of year but in the last six weeks and out of admittedly a quite small amount of a dozen bookies I have signed up to, so far I have only had one reload bonus and that was from Bwin.
So who's giving you guys the most love...
Well you never really know. I guess get as many as you can is the best advice
If we are talking good reloads:
Bet365 have traditionally been good for season premiere of footy and around christmas/new years for reloads. Although no christmas reload last year I think. Gamebookers/Partybets are excellent for reloads, and they proved that over the World cup. They have used to give out reloads around christmas/new years and also around the start of premiership football.
Other than that it is always a bit hit and miss and more account specific. I usually get £100-ish from Unibet, £50-ish from Nordicbet, Betsson and Bet24 around aug-oct as part of premiership or a CL campaign. But I live in a different country than most of you, and traditionally our offers are better than what you get.
Betclic is also a winner in that they like to give you €10 reloads for sportsbook and/or free tenners for their casino. Last year they were sent out fairly regularly.
Will Hill.... If they start with their bogofing again then we should all kiss the sky (or whatever) as it makes everything more exciting.
But I can't tell you what the future will be. But we will know soon enough
I'm thinking of starting dutching to save on befair commission + maybe make a little extra profit from the offers. Got one question though, do accounts get limited for dutching?
Oh yea another question, does spread betting offers and trading offers etc get discussed on here? Seems as though they could be very profitable, but maybe I'm wrong
Well you are just placing a bet as far as they are concerned they wont know you have placed another bet somewhere else on the other result. So they wont get limited for doing that as such, they would not know! Your account may get limited because they dont like your action/want your business but that would be no different from any other bets you are placing for any other reason. Its not the "Dutching" that is going to cause it.

They do sort of in the "Trading" section, although not very much. They can be profitable but they are not really like Sportsbook offers it is not comparing like for like. But yes they are discussed a bit there and will be more so in the future.

Bwin casino bonuses
hi there. just getting into the casino bonus bagging. just a quick question. can you sign up/eligible for the instant casino bonus and the download casino bonus?
yeah you can do both
Found this while trawlng the net & was wondering if the more experienced could give it the once over, to see if it has any merit. Sorry if this has been posted before.
Advanced Betting Concepts
Most sportsbook bonuses come in the form of freeplays - the book gives you some betting credits that you can use to place bets. If you win, you keep the winnings. If you lose, well...it was never really your money in the first place, right? That's what the sportsbook hopes you'll think.
They also hope you'll put that bet on a spread bet at their normal Juice and take your chances. If everyone did they'd have, more or less, 50% winners and 50% losers, so at -110 juice they would only have to pay out about 45% of the freeplays they issue as cash. In reality there's a couple of easy ways to give yourself at least a 75% payout on the value of your freeplays - meaning that if you're issued $1,000 in freeplays, you can convert that into $750 in cash or more, without risk.
This method is to use 3-team teasers that pay out at 6-1. Make sure you understand the terms of 3-team teasers at the books you're playing before you try this. Also, make sure the sportsbook allows you to play the teasers round robin, not all of them do. Here's how it works: there are 3 games.
Team A vs Team B
Team C vs Team D
Team E vs Team F
There are, from these contests, 8 possible outcomes, or winning combinations:
Your objective is to bet 1/8th of your freeplay amount on a Teaser for each of those possible outcomes - such that you have all of the outcomes covered and all of your freeplay invested. One of the combinations must hit, paying out 6-1. Thus you have converted your freeplay into cash at 75% of its original value. RISK FREE.
Although the maths may be sound I very much doubt you would be able to bet on all combinations at the same bookmaker. They would see that as Bonus abuse (they would have a point). If you found 8 different unrelated bookmakers and had a $100 freeplay at each it may work. Im not sure I am going to be trying it though.
