BetOnline Promotional Code Explained in Simple Terms

The sportsbook (which is the same company/site as is currently the 2nd most popular sportsbook (in the US) and of course has good deposit and signup bonuses.  In the last few years I noticed that they frequently change their bonus/promo codes.  The bonuses seem to change with the start of every new sports season, major events (like the Super Bowl) and usually with playoffs.  I have noticed that the bonus is always bigger (usually 50% to $2500 – instead of the standard 25% to $1000 bonus) at the start of football season..  Of course this isn’t too important since everybody gets a 50% bonus on all their re-deposits, so the changing bonus only affects your initial deposit.

Bonus Terms – The Dirty Details

Read these very carefully since most sportsbook bonuses can be VERY strict.

  • There is a 10x rollover requirement.
  • Rollover amount is [deposit + fees + bonus] multiplied by [required rollover]
  • Bonus is issued as Free Play
  • Free play only works in the sportsbook
  • NO withdraws can be made for 30 days of receiving your bonus!

So the amount required to bet (rollover) will be 10x your bonus to keep your bonus money.  Let’s run through some examples

Bonus Example #1

  1. You Deposit $500, so you will get a $250 Free Play bonus – (50%)
  2. $7,500 in total betting is required ($750* the 10x rollover)

Bonus Example #2 – Maxing it Out

  1. You Deposit $5,000, so you will get a $2,500 Free Play bonus – (50%)
  2. $75,000 in total betting is required ($7,500 * the 10x rollover) bonus screen Additional BetOnline Promos

  • $25 Free Live Bet – Not quite as good as it sounds… Place a live in-game bet of $25 or more and if you lose, they will reimburse you $25 (send an e-mail to with your account # and the ticket # of the bet you want refunded).  If your first live bet is a winner you’re not eligible for this promotion.  And of course the rollover (it’s everywhere!) – 6x rollover which is only $150 in bets.   It would be pretty dumb to not take this Free $25 Bet..
  • $50 Free Mobile Bet – Very very similar to the above “live bet” free money promo.  Visit and place a bet, if you lose your first bet (up to $50) send an email to with your account # and the ticket # of the  bet to be refunded within 24 hours of the completion of the game you bet on. Put “$50 Mobile Free Play” in the subject line of the email.  If your bet is more than $50, you will still get $50 returned.  The standard BOL 6x rollover is included on your “free” money.

Our Verdict of the Bonus

I really dislike the 10x rollover requirement on the first deposit when they have those occasional “special” 50% bonuses.  I guess it is relative – The bigger the bonus, the harder it is to get it.  Smaller bonuses are easier and have less of a rollover… but they are smaller!

The regular BetOnline first deposit bonus is usually a 25% bonus with a 6x rollover, then they “increase” their bonus to 50% and quietly increase the rollover to 10x and add a 30 day rule to earn the bonus. .  Seems a little sneaky, but overall the bonus is a really good option if you are going to be placing a good amount of bets at  Either way the BetOnline rollovers are a tad higher than most books, but so are their bonuses.  It will work if you are placing good size bets or want to use BOL as your main sportsbook.

The Best News – All redeposit bonuses will earn a 25% bonus, with ONLY A 6x ROLLOVER requirement.  Only a few sportsbooks offer re-deposit bonuses (Youwager has the best reload bonus – 15% bonus with only a 4.5x rollover).

Claim the 2018 Bonus


    1. 14x rollover.

      Same deal: no withdrawls for 30 days after getting this bonus.
      PLUS you must use any existing freeplays that you already have BEFORE claiming the bitcoin bonus…

    1. Yes, but you won’t be able to withdraw the bonus amount (since you did not earn it by meeting the rollover requirements).

  1. The best thing to do is not take a bonus. I never do. If you take two bonuses then the roll over requirment is stacked on top of the previous one. They want you to do the bonuses because it ensures that you will keep playing and leave the money in the account. Also, I am 95% sure that playing poker will not count towards the roll over so if poker is your game then stay away from the bonuses.

    I used to do the bonuses, took a break from playing for a while and then when i decided to deposit again I talked with them before I did and said I dont want to deposit unless they took away my current roll over requirments and they did.

  2. I’m pretty sure you also have the second example wrong as well. $6000 in total betting is not the right answer for a 6x rollover.

    4000 deposit + 1000 bonus = 5000 x6 rollover = $30,000 before a withdrawal can occur

  3. How much bonus will i get if i make a $200 deposit to play poker. I am new and do not know much about it I’d like to know more about betonline poker before making any deposits

  4. Your description of the ROLLOVER BONUS requirement is MISLEADING and INACCURATE

    “Minimum rollover requirement is defined as [deposit + fees + bonus] multiplied by [required rollover].”

    Example $500+$150=$625 the ROLLOVER requirement is 6x=$3750 not $750 as you state!
