Other bookie promotions on the Australian Open
If the past is any indicator, then the bookies’ competition for your gambling dollar over the Australian Open through promotions and bonuses will be fantastic for you, the punter.In the past a sports betting site in Australia has held a 25% multi bonus during the first week of the Australian Open. This required you to make a multi bet of at least four legs on men’s and women’s singles matches. If you were to win your multi the bookie would reward you with an additional 25% bonus on top of your winnings.
Often bookies will run boosted odds on selected matches or players, including a large focus on the Australian chances, like Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic in the men’s, and Sam Stosur in the women’s. There has also been novelty markets like when the last Australian would be knocked out.
Tips on how to use bookie bonuses on the Australian Open
Before indulging in bookie bonuses and promotions, ensure you are eligible for any promotion or bonus being advertised. Some times bonuses and promotions are not available to residents of Victoria, New South wales, Western Australia and South Australia due to those states gambling and promotions laws.
Always read and follow the terms and conditions associated with the bonus or promotion you are taking advantage of. This is to ensure you get what you are entitled to. If you don’t follow the terms and conditions of the promotion, you may find yourself ineligible for the promotion all together.
Remember there will be wagering requirements attached to bookie bonuses, meaning the punter has to turn the money over a certain amount of times before they can withdraw the money.
