What are enhanced odds welcome offers at 888sport?

When you join the 888sport sportsbook, there is a general welcome offer that can see you bet £10 and receive £30 in free bets and a casino bonus. However, there are other welcome offers that use enhanced odds, this article will look at these welcome offers in more depth.

How do these enhanced odds welcome offers work?

These enhanced welcome offers are available every week at the 888sport website. They are based on popular sporting events and see enhanced odds offered. It could be a football match that is the subject of the enhanced odds. However, it can also be a top boxing or UFC bout, a horse race, tennis or even darts.

For example, there could be an enhanced odds welcome offer on a match between Crystal Palace and Tottenham. The usual odds would have Tottenham the short priced favourites to win the match with Palace being the outsiders. This offer will see those odds greatly increased, for example 8/1 on Tottenham (regular odds ¾) and 33/1 on Crystal Palace (boosted from 19/5).

You will need to register a new account with 888sport and use the code given when making a deposit. Then you can place a £5 bet on either Palace or Tottenham to win the match at the regular and shorter odds. If your bet is a winning one, you will receive your winnings at the regular odds in cash. The amount won from the enhanced odds will be paid to you in the form of free bets. They will be valid for seven days and the stake will not be returned with any winnings you get from them.

You can see therefore, that this differs from their general welcome offer. With this you need to get a winner to receive anything. If you do, that’s good news but if not, then the only good news is that you have joined an excellent sportsbook.

How much can you receive?

It’s possible that you could receive a large amount of free bets from this kind of welcome offer. If the enhanced odds are 6/1, then there will be £30 in free bets received. That equals the amount on offer in the general welcome offer. Anything higher than 6/1 will see you receive more than the main welcome offer gives you.

The free bets that you receive will be in maximum denominations of £20. If for example, you were lucky enough to receive £50 in free bets, you’d receive two £20 free bets and one to the value of £10.

Of course, the big bonus here is if you choose the outsiders and they win. Sometimes the enhanced odds can get as high as 100/1. For this to come up, you will need to see a major shock result. It’s a gamble to take and the stake you need to place is only £5. 

This is an attractive form of welcome offer. It does require you to put your tipping skills into action. You need to remember, that although you can possibly get a higher number of free bets but could also end with nothing. If you do take this as your welcome offer, you can’t go for the standard one, the decision is entirely yours.
