There’s no doubt that New Zealand bookmakers are the best in terms of offering bonuses and promotions to its customers. This is probably the reason why the New Zealand punters should be smiling about since some other punters from different parts of the world do not enjoy such amazing opportunities or offers.
There are several kinds of bonuses that are being offered by the New Zealand bookmakers and they vary from one bookmaker to another. Although, there are some bonuses that share the same features across all the top sportsbooks in New Zealand and some of these bonuses will be looked at below.
Welcome Deposit Bonuses
This is almost available in all of the bookmakers in the great New Zealand. Hence, New Zealand punters get to enjoy this offer from whichever sportsbook that they think well suits them. The only different thing here might be the amount of fund that one gets when registering with those New Zealand bookies and make their first deposit. Also, the wagering requirements for this kind of bonus are not the same in all the bookies that offer it. Some bookies might require up to 30x while in others it might be as low as 5x. This is greatly dependent on the amount of bonus that the punter gets.
An instance of how this bonus might look like is that of Ladbrokes’ deposit bonus whereby the punter is asked to register with this bookmaker and then make a deposit of up to €50. In return, that bettor is awarded 300% bonus which in this case will be €150 as bonus bets. William Hills’ deposit bonus states that the new punters ought to make a deposit of €50 and are guaranteed of €200 in bonus bets. Indeed, these deals are so good but the bettors have to go through the T&Cs very carefully before accepting the deal. In fact, the T&Cs need to be looked at not only in this bookmaker but also in all the other bookmakers.
Sunday Racing Special
According to Crownbet sportsbook, this offer mostly benefits those punters who like to bet on horse racing sports events. This offer awards the bettor up to €50 in bonus bets in case the horse that had been bet on comes 2nd or 3rd in the first two rounds of the race. If that is not the case, then that offer will not be applicable and the bettor won’t have any right to complain about the offer.
This should not come as a surprise especially for those punters who have been using their mobile phones to place their bets. There are some top bookies in New Zealand that offer their clients the mobile bonus in case those clients use their mobile devices to place bets or register their selves using those smartphones. For instance, Betfair bookie awards its customers who register using the Betfair mobile app, €30 as free bets when they stake €10 on their first bets.
This is another great sporting bonus that William Hills’ New Zealand gamblers get to enjoy in case they are interested in it. What happens here is that a punter is awarded 15% free bet bonus that is added to the winnings in case the horse that the gambler backs wins the race by two or more lengths. However, the bonus for players is limited to €100 as anything beyond that won’t attract any bonus. This bonus can be placed using a Mobile phone app, text, retail, or via the internet (desktop).
One of the conditions for this bonus is that the participants of the race must not be less than 6. The other condition is that a bet that is placed using the free bet token will not count at all.
Fair Go Refunds
Crownbet also offers such a bonus to its customers. What this means is that a bettor gets refunded accordingly in case an unfair decision is made that actually messed up everything to deal with the bets that they had made. An example is a situation whereby the referee of the game unfairly sends off a football player and yet again awards the penalty to the opponents. If the bettor loses that bet because of poor officiating by the referee, its bookmaker has a way of refunding the unlucky bettor some amount. The controversies that this bonus sorts to solve could also be those affecting horse racing events or rugby matches. This is one of the things that this bookie’s customers like about their bookmaker.
No deposit bonus
Yes, it is possible for a bookmaker in New Zealand to offer its clients such a bonus. The deal is so intriguing but, the punters need to take heed on this offer as it comes with its restrictions too. Such restrictions could be minimum odds required to place a bet with them, the wagering requirements of this feature could go up to 50x multiplier meaning that the gambler will not be able to cash out any winnings from this bonus until a certain threshold is met.
Refer a friend
There are some bookies that award bonuses or promotions to their customers when they invite their friends or families to join that bookie. The customer who referred his/her friend to join that bookie will only get awarded some bonuses (which could be in cash money or free bets) only if the referred bettors make some deposits after registering their selves.
One such bookie is Unibet. In this bookie, a customer/punter who invites his/her friends to register their selves and bet with Unibet gets a bonus of €40 per referral. In case the referee invites up to 3 friends, then that person stands a chance of being awarded €120 in cash. Nevertheless, the referee could get up to a maximum of €200 in cash meaning that he/she can invite not more than 5 friends. Other bookies could award its customers free bets.
