First Deposit Bonus

First Deposit Bonuses are the most common type of bookmaker signup bonuses in Australia.

They are just as their name suggests – you receive your free bet bonus after you make your first deposit. Bookmakers such as Luxbet, CrownBet, Unibet and Palmerbet all have first deposit bonus offers.

Let’s use the CrownBet first deposit bonus as an example. Once you register your new account and make your first deposit, they will credit your account with a free bet with the same value of your first deposit.

So for example, if you deposit $50 you will receive $50 free, or if you deposit $100, you will receive $100, etc.

Luxbet actually has the best value for money bonus currently available in Australia. If you deposit as little as $50, they will award you with a whopping $200 free bet. Not bad hey?

Matched First Bet

The Matched First Bet operates in a very similar fashion to the deposit bonus.

This time rather than receiving a bonus based on your deposit, you will receive a matched free bet based on your first bet amount.

For example, if you join up with Sportsbet and your first bet value is worth $250, you will receive $250 in the way of free bets.

A good way of looking at this is that you’re receiving insurance on your first bet. If your first bet is a loser, the matched free bet will counteract that loss.

Sportsbet and William Hill are the two bookmakers in Australia that offer matched first bet offers.
