How to claim Betstars welcome bonus
As with most industries, the headline advert in a gambling campaign draws you in by making the offer seem more appealing than it actually is. However, these promotions can still provide extra value to your gambling entertainment.
New customers are offered the chance to receive up to $500 in free bets. However, this doesn’t mean they place $500 straight into your Betstars app account upon signup.
There are terms and conditions to the offer that need to be conformed to in order to achieve the full $500 bonus. The offer is broken down into two segments, one of which has to be duplicated 5 times to receive the maximum bonus. I will provide more detail on this down the page. These are;
- A free bet to the value of the first bet placed on the account, up to $50.
- A $50 free bet each time you wager $150. This can be done up to nine times to build up to $450 worth of free bets.
For any bet to qualify towards the promotion, the wager has to hold odds of at least -110. Also, only certain bets qualify. Therefore we recommend keeping it nice and simple to start with, placing either a single or a parlay over the qualifying odds at the maximum amount (up to $50) of your allocated budget.
Examples of how to claim the matched free bet
- Bet $10 on a single with odds of +100 and receive a free $10 bet
- Wager $25 on a parlay with odds of -110 and receive a $25 free bet.
- Place an initial bet on a $50 single with odds of +350 and receive a $50 free bet.
$50 free bets after matched free bet.
You will then need to wager a further $150 to receive the next part of the bonus, after you have made your first wager, qualifying for the matched free bet. For some that will be too much. Therefore we would recommend settling for the matched free bet only for those on lower budgets. Those with big budgets can go ahead and chase the other bonuses available.
In my opinion, You should view this as gaining your first matched bonus, whatever value that may be. Don’t view it as losing out on the other possible $450. The bonus is designed purposefully so that everybody has the chance to benefit, regardless of overall spend. It just means the big spenders have more value to go at, and when you think about it – rightfully so.
Other important information
ALL wagers must have odds of a minimum -110. If parlays are used single lines can have odds of less than -110, as long as the total wager has odds of -110 or more.
When you receive a free bet use it – Don’t sit on them for too long. You only have 7 days to use it. If you do not use it within seven days, the free bet is removed from your account.
Avoid Season-long bets and futures – Bets towards the second part of the bonus only count if they are settled within the 90 day period.
