Of course, there is not only one kind of bonus for new members. You can often come across several different kinds. You have probably already seen this on our list further up, and below you can read about the most common types of start bonus for new members.
Welcome offer with free bet
You can also register with a free bet at a bookmaker in Denmark. It is very similar to a risk-free bet, but it is not quite the same. When you get a free bet at a Danish bookmaker, it means that you get a free bet.
In Denmark, the Gambling Authority has stipulated that free bonuses for gambling must always be free. This must be understood as a bookmaker not being allowed to advertise with a free bonus, which then requires a deposit or playthrough requirement to get the bonus. If you have to deposit money to get the bonus, or if you have to transfer money to be able to play the winnings for free, it is no longer a free bonus.
When you play with a free bet, you get a free bet to play on sports or special bets, depending on what is included in the bonus terms. If you win the bet, you get your winnings. If you lose the bet, nothing happens. You can then choose to pay into the site and play at odds if you feel like it.
No deposit bonus
Many Danes, and people abroad for that matter, are happy with the no-deposit bonus. It is also called no deposit bonus or bonus without deposit. Here, it is not necessary to deposit a minimum amount to get your odds bonus or whatever bonus is involved. However, there may be other requirements such as having to play through the bonus. It is very rare that there is a no-deposit bonus for odds. Typically, it is more common that you can get a matched freebet or a matched deposit, which you can read about in the next sections.
Matching welcome bonus
In the vast majority of cases, your betting bonus at an online bookmaker will be a matching deposit bonus. It can either be in the form of a welcome package or on your first deposit. If it is a welcome bonus package, you will enjoy odds bonuses on your first, second, third, etc. deposit depending on how it is all put together. However, in most cases it is a matching welcome bonus, which is exclusively on your first deposit.
Regardless of whether it is a matching welcome bonus on the first deposit or the second or third, it is basically the same concept. The game site matches your deposit with a certain percentage up to a certain amount. There will often be a minimum, unless it is a no deposit bonus, and a maximum.
Many times it is a welcome bonus of 100% up to DKK 500 in bonus on your first deposit. In this hypothetical scenario, the gambling site will match your first deposit with 100% up to DKK 500. If you choose to register on a gambling site with a bonus package, it is typical that the percentage and amount vary depending on whether it is the first deposit, second , third etc. It could be, for example, that you get 100% up to DKK 500 in bonus on the first deposit and then 200% up to DKK 300 on the second deposit. All of this depends on the game site, but hopefully we’ve made the concept clear.
Welcome bonus with risk-free play
Many bookmakers also choose to give a risk-free bet as a welcome bonus. It is a simple concept where you can place one or more risk-free bets up to a certain amount. In this way, you can quietly start betting on odds on the gaming platform. There isn’t as much of a prize to win when you know it’s a risk-free game.
The whole concept is based on the betting site giving you the money back up to a certain amount if you lose on your first risk-free bet. Here again, it is important that you pay attention to the bonus conditions. There may be specific bets, minimum odds and playthrough requirements to enjoy this type of bonus. You will always be able to read about all that in the bonus conditions.
