T20 betting specials for BBL 2018/19
No two bookmaker promotions are exactly alike, and Twenty20 cricket bonuses can come in all shapes and sizes. Below is but a taste of the specials and promos you will encounter throughout the BBL campaign.
Futures bonus: Some bookies like to offer Big Bash bonus deals for popular outright markets such as the title winner, top tournament batsman and top tournament bowler. These may come in the form of a refund in the event your selection does not win, or as a rolling bonus where you collect rewards points or bonus bets that correspond to your team or player’s performance throughout the campaign.
Bonus refund: This is the most common form of sports betting bonus available at online bookies. If you place a bet on a selected market and it does not win, you can reclaim your stake up to a specified amount if certain criteria are met. For example, let’s say there is a $50 refund bonus on the head-to-head result of a game between the Sydney Sixers and the Melbourne Stars; if we bet $50 on the Stars and they lose, we get our $50 back in bonus bets.
Boosted odds: More and more betting firms are taking on the favourites with enhanced prices for selected gameday markets. For example, in a bid to attract interest in a lopsided head-to-head matchup, a bookie might pay overs of $2.20 for the Perth Scorchers to beat the Hobart Hurricanes. You will also find boosted odds on star players in various exotic markets (e.g. $5 for Michael Klinger to score 50 runs or more).
Bonus rewards: Rather than dishing out bonus bets or cash refunds, some bookmakers will instead offer extra loyalty points as an incentive for wagering on a particular BBL market. Betting rewards schemes allow punters to accumulate points on every bet and redeem them for exclusive perks such as frequent flyer miles, fine dining experiences, luxury holidays and more.
Player specials: T20 player props are among the hottest markets in all of cricket betting. They are also high-risk bets, which is why Big Bash bookies have no qualms about framing special markets for big-name players. Over/under runs lines, most wickets, top batsman/match result doubles, head-to-head matchups – you will find plenty of value on the BBL’s biggest stars all summer long.
Best bookies for Big Bash League betting
Betting specials and bonus deals are only worth a damn if they come from a respected bookmaker. There are hundreds of betting operators that take bets on the Big Bash, but not all of them pass muster in essential categories such as licensing and regulation, certified SSL data encryption, secure banking methods, market quality and customer support.
The BBL bookies below tick all the boxes. We recommend signing up at more than one to ensure you always get the best odds, the biggest bonuses and the most unique specials whenever you have a flutter on the T20 this year.
