Promotion summary – January 2017
|Bookmaker||Promotion type||Promotion value||Promotion Code|
|NetBet||New account free bet||£50||WELCOME50|
Betting Promotion Codes brings you the latest promo code from Netbet, but what’s the verdict? It’s a deposit match free bet deal, worth up to £50 if you take the maximum value from the offer. In this review we’ve had a look at how to do just that, and what you can expect when you sign up and start betting with them today.
What is the NetBet Promo Code?
As you can see from the table above, the current code is “WELCOME50” – and you can probably guess from this that it’s a £50 welcome bonus! It works by giving you a 50% boost on your first deposit, up to the maximum amount of £50. Bear this in mind if you intend to bet more, as it’ll only be the first part of your deposit that counts for the promotion.
There are a few rules to be aware of when you make your initial deposit and begin betting, we’ve summarised these for you a little further down the page so you know exactly what is required to make the most of the offer. In our next section, we look at who NetBet are and what they have to offer.
NetBet is a relatively new name to the UK bookmaking arena, but the company itself certainly isn’t new. The brief history of the brand is that NetBet was originally a casino, founded more than a decade ago and with a successful product and customer base built up over these years. Recently, they were involved in a couple of acquisitions, taking on Poker770 and Bet770 and adding more than 2 million customers in the process. Just a couple of years back, these two products were re-branded under the NetBet umbrella and formed the basis of the modern day sports and poker products.
To ensure that the new brands got the exposure they deserved, NetBet has adopted an aggressive marketing approach over the last few years. Those of you who watch Premier League football will have seen their logo regularly on the advertising hoardings, and they also have a deal in place to provide facilities at West Bromwich Albion. It’s an ambitious company, and they are achieving their aims in the UK market. All well and good, but for us punters it’s all about the products, so how do they measure up?
NetBet sportsbook review
NetBet sports in the default site and once you’ve clicked through that’s where you’ll find yourself. At first glance the site appears to be neat and tidy, with easy access to everything you need. The bar across the top of the screen gives access to the homepage, help centre, a choice of language and their social media channels on the left. To the right of the same bar are fields for your username and password, and the register button for new members.
Next you’ll see the main site navigation. First up are Sports and In-Play, followed by Casino, Live Dealers, Vegas and Poker. As we mentioned earlier, they have built some of these products on the back of an acquisition, meaning an already solid sports and poker offering was improved and integrated into the NetBet suite. Other products such as Vegas are new and have been developed recently specifically for the NetBet platform.
The third row down is another navigational bar, where you’ll find options such as fractional or decimal odds, the current date and time, downloads for the NetBet app, plus access to various extras such as “Golden Goal” – something we’ll cover a little later on.
The main section of the screen is dedicated to the sportsbook itself. Pride of place in the middle at the top goes to the latest big sporting events, typically there are 4 of these scrolling round in a continuous loop – showcasing the top matches across football, cricket, tennis etc. Whatever is flavour of the day is likely to be here, so if you’re logging on on a Sunday morning for the afternoons big match, chances are you’ll find it here. If not, no problem though, the most popular sports can be accessed from the top of the main menu, which runs down the left hand side of the screen. This is followed by “Today’s Events” then a full listing of all the sports covered, in order of popularity. If you scroll down a little you’ll immediately realise just what a comprehensive sportsbook is on offer at NetBet, with events ranging from Premier League football and T20 cricket, right down to minority sports such as Floorball and Gaelic Football. Whatever your game, they’ll have a market for it.
The menu system is intuitive and quick, you can quickly find a bet no matter what sport or where in the world it’s being played. Once you’ve chosen your event you’ll see that the main screen area changes to show you all the available markets and bets. Say for example you’ve chosen a football league, you’ll see the upcoming matches from this league, plus a clickable section of bet types, including outrights. The main bets for each of the upcoming events will be displayed already, but if you’re looking for something else you can click the section at the top to change between market types, or simply click on the event itself to see all the other associated bets. The dual view system is easy to use, but it’s also a clever addition – the different views allow easy placing of multiples, or a detailed look at a particular event, whichever you prefer.
When you’ve made your selections and clicked them they’ll be added to the betslip, which is positioned at the top right hand corner of the screen. This confirms the selection and the current odds, as well as giving you your options for multiple bets (if you’ve made more than one selection). Choose four selections and you’ll see that the available multiples expands down to include several options, with punter favourites such as the Lucky 15 and Yankee amongst these. A final handy box on the betslip is the stake dropdown. This is a quick way of choosing from common bet values, and it can be used for any of your singles or multiples to speed things along.
NetBet Golden Goal
Now we’ve had a general look at the NetBet sportsbook, lets have a look at some of their specials. The favourite amongst these is the “Golden Goal” – which is a pool plus jackpot football predictions game. There are various grids available to choose from, where you have to predict the results of football matches. For our example, have a look at this recent screenshot from the “Mini grid game”
The aim of the game is to predict whether or not each game in the list will be a home win, draw or away win. If you just select one outcome for each game the grid will cost you £1 to enter and you’ll be in with a shot of the jackpot. But you can improve your chances by choosing more than one result for each game, up to a defined maximum number of predictions. Say you are unsure on the top game, you could cover all three outcomes! Obviously the more selections you make, the more your entry will cost, but the corresponding chances of winning will improve.
The prizes are based on the overall number of entries, within the jackpot (and single winner guarantee) an added extra. Say you get everything spot on and no-one else does, not only will you scoop the pot, but you’ll also get a healthy payout from the pool. A win/win situation! Of course it’s not easy to get all the results right and that’s why there are decent prizes on offer, but it’s an interesting game and a good challenge for anyone who thinks they know their football!
Is there a NetBet promo code for existing customers?
Not at the moment. But we work closely with NetBet and if this changes we will of course include it on this page.
How to get this deposit match and how it works
Our final section explains exactly how the offer works and how you can make the most of it. In summary, you need to do the following:
2. Make your first deposit, using the NetBet bonus code “WELCOME50” in the cashier
3. Bet your deposit once on qualifying bets
4. Once the qualifying bets are settled the bonus is credited to your account automatically.
Remember that the offer is a 50% deposit match, and this is a match of your first deposit. So if you want to take the maximum amount of value from the offer, you should make an initial deposit of £100.
Good luck with NetBet, we hope you enjoy betting with this innovative bookmaker.
