Whether it's from your boss giving out a bit of New Year cheer, or the local coffeeshop offering a 2-for-1, it's always nice to get a bonus. All the top racebooks on the Web know that a good bonus makes for a happy horseplayer, and so bonus programs have become the norm in online wagering. Welcome bonuses, cash back rebates and friend referrals are just some of the offers available, and can really add up in your betting account.
Bonus Offers and Promos
Not all racebooks are the same, and that goes for their bonus programs as well. Check out our top-rated online racebooks to find the bonus offers that make the most sense to you and fit your wagering plan.
* REMINDER! - you must be of legal age in your state or province to legally wager on thoroughbred or harness horse racing. Please bet responsibly!
Are there any hidden details in bonus plans?
Truthfully, online wagering platforms don't "hide" anything. They are in the business of making their customers happy in order to continue to build their business, and not being upfront about what they have to offer would run counter to that. But of course, like any agreement, there are Terms and Conditions that it is up to the customer to be aware of, and so make sure you understand those when joining a betting site. In terms of bonuses, some of the things to look for are required minimum deposits, rollover amounts on deposits and bonuses amounts, and whether all bonuses can actually be used in racebook wagering, as some sports betting sites restrict some bonuses to only their sportsbook.
I've signed up. When can I expect my bonus?
Most wagering platforms will put First Deposit or Welcome bonuses or Refer A Friend bonuses into your account immediately after you've opened the account and made a deposit, and certainly within 30 minutes after you've done so - and you can start to use your bonus immediately, as well. For cash back bonuses and rebates, the time will vary depending on the site as some give daily cash back, others do so by the week. One other thing to note is that many sites will require you to rollover the bonus amount within a certain number of days, so as mentioned above, make sure to check the specific site Terms and Conditions so you don't hang onto the bonus for too long.
