How would you like to be allowed to bet with the best odds in the betting industry? How about placing a wager on a match devoid of the bookie’s commission, or be offered double odds if your team manages to make a comeback? Enhanced odds (alternatively called Price Boost) are usually some of the most common promotions on any respected bookmaker’s website. Of course you have to place and win an “enhanced bet“ before you can claim your bonus, but you will earn significantly more money compared to a normal single bet.
Types of enhanced odds
The most common type of enhanced odds are found when bookmakers offer better odds on certain pre-selected matches. Usually these offers will last only for a few hours, regardless if a bookmaker will claim that they will be available until the start of the event. You have to act quick if you want to get your hands on these promotions, as many punters will try to beat one another and claim the offer for themselves.
This is one of the most popular enhanced odds promotions. The bookmaker will offer odds on special events that have not been reduced by the commission. This is also described as “0% commission”, which means that the vig the bookies will keep, is significantly reduced. It is commonly found on popular events such as UEFA Champions League Finals or World Cup matches.
Accumulators price boost
Another common enhanced odds offer can be found on accumulator bets. They will offer a boost on your total earnings if you place 5+fold multiple bet. If you select a combination of, say 8 events with their odds amounting to a total of 15.50, the enhanced bet promotion will allow you to earn 20% or perhaps 50% more money compared to your initial calculations. There are of course limits to the number of matches and the minimum total odds of the accumulator bet, but the general idea is to reward players that like to select many events on a single bet slip.
Spin Bet enhanced odds
This is a combination that is influenced by your betting abilities and the whims of Lady Luck. You can claim this promotion by choosing a team to win on a selected football match. A percentage of your money (usually 5% or 10%) will be added to a jackpot bonus pool. Following the confirmation of your bet, you will be informed whether you have been selected as the grand winner. Bookmakers tend to offer extremely profitable odds on these spin bet events. Most of the times you can find that the initial odds of a match are four or five times higher.
Before selecting an enhanced bet you should check its limits. Higher odds offers will only allow you to win up to certain amount of money, whether it is a goalscorer event, a HT-FT score or an exact score.
In many cases, your earnings will be split up in cash prizes and free bets. Some bookmakers prefer to credit your account with a percentage of your winnings (usually 50%) and offer the rest in other forms, such as specific bonuses or free bets.
On most enhanced odds promos you won’t be able to cash out your bet, regardless of how the match is unfolding. You have to wait for the event to end before you can claim your prize.
- Make sure to check if there is a bonus activation code you have to fill in before you place your bet. Bookies tend to state this in their terms, so remember that your promo will not be automatically activated.
Some enhanced odds promotions are available only for new players, so you have to carefully check if there is a time limit on your first login to the specific bookie.
Some bookies might offer you a cashback option if you lose an enhanced odds bet.
