There are plenty of bookmakers online these days, and it may be a bit confusing trying to decide which bookie is the right one for your needs. Firstly, I must say that I’m a strong believer in having accounts with more than one bookmaker, and for a couple of reasons:
Bookies prices vary just as the cost of a loaf of bread does from supermarket to supermarket. If the loaf in question costs £1.50 in Sainsbury’s but it’s just 99p in Tesco’s next door, you’re not going to spend the extra 50p are you?
It is wise to always go for the best possible odds you can get for your selection, and you’re not going to get that if you are tied to just one bookie. More than one account gives you options and more choice. Some bookies have better prices than others, but you will never be better off putting all your eggs in one basket and being forced to take odds that are too short. I recommend having at least 4 active betting accounts. This will give you access to better prices regularly.
Secondly, and just as important are the free bets attached to opening a new betting account. Bookmakers want your custom, and they will try and get it to start with by offering a bonus bet or series of bets that come in a few different forms. See THIS PAGE for more info on the types of free bets offered.
At the time of writing, opening accounts with Sky Bet, Betfred, Bet365 and Ladbrokes (which will take about 20 minutes in total) will net you a grand total of £310 in free bets if you choose to take them up on their offer. Now that is money not to be sniffed at, and if spent wisely, could make you lots and lots of profit!
The list does go on though. I currently have accounts with 14 bookmakers (including Betfair), and each and every one of them offers new customers some kind of free bet incentive to entice you yo join them. Take up their generous offers and then continue to build profit with them is the idea!
Once you have used these initial bet bonuses the fun doesn’t stop there. Most bookies offer existing customers a large amount of loyalty bonuses that can include more free bets, enhanced odds, money back on losing bets, and even up to 100% win bonuses on successful accumulators. This is why I cant stress highly enough that opening more than one account to place your bets is an absolute must if you want to take advantage of regular offers and bonuses, as well as guaranteeing you the best odds on a selection you want to bet on.
