The online sportsbook of gambling giant 888.com has taken an interesting twist on enhanced odds and is offering new customers treble the odds on their first bet. Customers will be free to choose any sports market and receive enhanced odds, which will mean much greater freedom than the bookmaker specified markets generally available for this type of sign up incentive.
888sport chose Freebets.com to launch the offer as it looks to test the water for what could be a landmark change to customer acquisition. The arrangement means the offer will be exclusively promoted by Freebets.com on its website and network of social media channels.
The triple odds offer will only be available to customers registering a new account via the unique link provided by Freebets.com. Punters will be directed to a special landing page from where they can register their details and receive treble the odds on their first bet.
Customers must stake at least £5 to qualify for the offer which applies to single bets and straight line accumulators on any sports markets. The maximum stake is £10 and extra winnings will be capped at £5000.
Unlike many enhanced odds offers, 888sport will pay the extra winnings in cash. Bets will be settled at the normal odds in the first instance and the extra cash credited to accounts within 72 hours.
888.com moved into sports betting with the creation of 888sport in March 2008 to complement its market leading products, 888casino and 888poker. Parent company 888Holdings PLC is listed on the London Stock Exchange and operates other gaming products like bingo, games and mobile.
Freebets.com is a leading sports betting service dedicated to bringing top value to its customers providing exclusive enhanced odds and free bet offers, news of current bonus offers, free bets and promotions from all the leading online bookmakers. Other services include mobile apps, free tips from racing, golf, football and snooker experts, odds comparison, betting calculator and information and links for live streaming sports.
