Understanding the SportingIndex welcome offer will not be too difficult as there are only two of them, they are nice and easy to use and they both surround support. To clarify, this means that there is no specific SportingIndex casino bonus and, as we mentioned earlier on, there is no market for eSports on the site either.
Nonetheless, let’s dive into the Sportingindex sports bonus details.
At SportingIndex, you can get your hands on one of two different bonuses, but you will have to choose on the style of betting that you want to go for, weighed up against the bonus you are being offered (the spread betting one is much better). They look a bit like this:
- Spread betting: Get 50% cashback on net losses up to £500, after making and settling qualifying spread bets within 7 days of signing up.
- Fixed odds betting: Get a £20 free bet after your first qualifying bet of £10 has settled.
We found that the SportingIndex welcome offer was actually one of the fairest on the market when it comes to ease of usage. If you want a simple no-frills sports welcome bonus, then you need look no further than SportingIndex.
There are no wagering requirements or awkward hidden terms and conditions that make any bonus funds difficult to withdraw. This is rare in the world of online sports betting, as sites will often try to limit their losses by installing terms and conditions that are hard to navigate.
It is worth noting that with the £20 free bet offer, you'll receive your bonus in two increments. The first £10 bet token will be credited as soon as your initial bet has settled, while the second £10 bet token will be added to your account 24 hours later.
Take a look at our article on ‘is there a TonyBet scam?’ for an example of some heavy terms and conditions.
Now that we’ve settled the rules when it comes to withdrawing your bonus funds, it’s time to take a look at how that happens. The only payment method that SportingIndex allows for is a debit card, which means you will need to withdraw with a debit card as well, of course.
Most of us do in fact have debit cards, so this should not be too much of a problem. However, we would have liked to see a little more flexibility as we know how much some of our readers like using payment methods such as Skrill and PayPal.
Time-wise, it should take between two and seven days to withdraw your bonus funds. This is pretty standard across the board. If you have not received your funds within 10 days, we would recommend reaching out to SportingIndex customer support.
This is possible 24 hours thanks to a 24 hour phone line, but if you are not in a rush you can always send them an email or jump on the live chat which is open for 10 hours a day.
The only slightly challenging aspect of this bonus is the fact that you need to use all of your bonus within 7 days of activating your account. Our best advice in this aspect is just to place your bets straight away so that you don’t forget about them. Other than this, there is really nothing to report when it comes to avoiding things when claiming the bonus.
While £20 isn’t exactly the grandest amount of money in the world to win from an online sportsbook bonus, the fact that it is so easy to use makes that cash invaluable.
Let’s look at it another way. Say you’re offered £100 from a site. This might look very appealing at face value, but when you factor in the fact that you need to place a £50 deposit, play through your winnings five times in three days and tonnes of markets are excluded from wagering, that £100 begins to look less and less worth it.
