The 2020 NRL season is upon us, which means bookmakers are releasing specials and promotions. While promotions are not the only reason a bookmaker is good for wagering on the NRL, anything that increases your bankroll or decrease the risk associated with a wager is something anyone who punts on rugby league should consider.
BettingSite.com.au won’t promote a bookmaker for the sake of it. The following NRL betting sites all feature promotions on the 2020 season.

Bookie Sign Up Bonuses for NRL
Australian can no longer claim sign up bonuses to use on the NRL, with the National Gambling Framework banning incentives to open new accounts. This includes all states in Australia. To find our more about the bookie bonus ban, read our guide.
You can read our dedicated page to bookie bonuses, which links to state pages so you can get a more in depth vision of what is required to claim a bonus.
How to find the best NRL odds
Betting bonuses and specials are a great way to increase the payouts if you’re punting on the NRL. These can come in the form of boosted odds on certain teams or matches.
It’s worth having multiple bookmaker accounts and keeping an eye on the specials on a week to week basis to see what the bookie is offering. For instance often if there is a dominant team bookies will offer boosted odds on the team that is playing them.
How do wagering requirements work?
When you receive a bonus amount at an online bookmaker it is important to be aware of the ‘wagering requirements’ or withdrawal limitations.
These restrictions on how we can use bookie specials are put in place to stop people simply depositing and receiving the bonus amount, before withdrawing their cash.
Some bookmakers will not give you your bonus amount until you have made your first wager and it has been completed.
The other big requirement that is generally in place is that you turn the bonus amount over before you withdraw it. Some bookies will make the turnover amount 2.5x while others will simply ask you to turn it over 1x.
