Betting on sports is a great way to enjoy your favourite sporting events and make a little bit of extra money on the side. Sports Bonuses give you extra cash to bet with, meaning you can win even more. There are a variety of different sports bonuses available at 10CRIC, including first deposit bonuses, reload bonuses, free bets and cashback. Let’s take a closer look at these bonuses and how you claim them.
What is a Welcome Bonus?
A Welcome Bonus is typically the first bonus you’ll be offered as a new member of a sports betting site. Often called a first deposit bonus, it gives you extra funds (or virtual money) to bet with as a reward for making your first deposit. To claim the bonus, you simply enter the bonus code in the relevant box when you make the deposit. How much you get depends on how much you deposit. Let’s look at 10CRIC’s Welcome Bonus as an example:
100% up to ₹10,000 plus 20 Free Spins on The King
The 100% refers to the part of your deposit amount that you’ll get as a bonus. So if you deposit ₹1,000, you’ll also get ₹1,000 as a bonus. If you deposit ₹500, you’ll get a bonus of ₹500.
The maximum bonus you can get is indicated by the ‘up to ₹10,000’ part of the bonus. To get the maximum bonus amount you would therefore have to deposit ₹10,000. Depositing more than ₹10,000 will not increase your bonus amount beyond ₹10,000. With 10CRIC’s Welcome Bonus you also get 20 Free Spins on the slot game The King.
What is a Reload Bonus?
A Reload Bonus is the same as the Welcome Bonus except it applies to any deposit you make after your first. This bonus is for boosting your balance on your next deposit and works in exactly the same way as the first deposit bonus. You simply enter the relevant bonus code in the box when making your deposit.
An example of a Reload Bonus at 10CRIC is the Weekly Sports Bonus. In this case you get a bonus of 30% of your deposit amount, up to a maximum of ₹3,000, that you can claim every week. Remember to enter the correct bonus code for that week in the box when making your deposit to claim the bonus.
What is a rollover?
A rollover is the number of times the deposit and bonus amount must be played before you can withdraw the bonus amount as cash. Also referred to as ‘wagering requirements’, the rollover terms can be found in the terms and conditions for the relevant bonus. Let’s use 10CRIC’s Welcome Bonus as an example.
Imagine you’ve deposited ₹1,000 and claimed the 100% Welcome Bonus, giving you a bonus of ₹1,000. The wagering requirements specify that there is a ‘12x rollover’ before you can cash out that bonus amount. This means you must bet your deposit + bonus amount 12 times.
Be sure to check the terms and conditions for the bonus you are claiming, as there might be a time limit and certain bet types that will not count towards completing the wagering requirements. Also be aware that withdrawing your bonus amount before you’ve met the wagering requirements will not be possible.
What is a Free Bet?
A Free Bet is an amount of money that can only be used on the site to bet on sports. Free Bets are quite often rewarded in return for betting a certain way, as part of a promotional offer.
For example, in 10CRIC’s Ace Tennis Free Bets promotion, betting at least ₹1,000 on certain tennis events on at least 3 separate days, rewards you with a Free Bet of up to ₹2,000. It’s the perfect reward for someone who likes to bet on tennis anyway!
An important point to note about Free Bets is that while you cannot withdraw the Free Bet itself, you can withdraw any winnings you get from using the Free Bet – as straight cash, no wagering requirements!
What is Cashback?
Cashback is an amount of money that you get back to your sports betting account. Quite often it’s used as a backup when betting on certain sporting events, so that if you don’t win, you get a part of your bet amount back.
Take a look at 10CRIC’s Football Fever Cashback offer as an example, which gives you 10% up to ₹3,500 Cashback every week. So if you bet on any of the listed football leagues and your bet doesn’t win, you’ll get back 10% of whatever you’ve bet and lost as cashback, up to a maximum amount of ₹3,500.
Note that Cashback is classed as a bonus, so there are wagering requirements that must be completed before you can withdraw the amount as cash. In this case, the cashback must be rolled over 3x within 7 days.
