How to Play with a Big Bonus Sportsbook and Still Get Paid
Every year, about 100 new sportsbooks are created and every year about 95% of these companies go out of business by the end of the NFL season. These are the new and small operations that give out 100% cash bonus or even up to 200% bonus in free play in order to get started.
For the veteran sports bettor, that is an offer that is too true to be good. That is because of the legitimate online sportsbooks that have been around for over a decade and have a reputation for paying their players’ winnings in a fast and efficient manner only give out up to 30% bonus.
Despite these facts, thousands of sports bettors are still willing to take the risk of not getting paid on their winning because they do not know anything about the offshore sports betting industry or because they are willing to take the risk for a large possible reward.
