Usually one differentiates between three types of bonus in eSports bets, which we present here:

Deposit bonus

A deposit bonus is, as the name implies, tied to a deposit. Often there is the offer of 100% up to 100 euros bonus. This means that the bookie doubles your deposit up to a maximum of € 100. For some bookmakers, however, you must first place a bet for this bonus, only then does the bonus money go to your account. This is the most frequently offered bonus in the business to attract new customers in eSports betting.

Free bet

You can usually enjoy the free bet if you are new to eSports betting. This is often subject to exact specifications and is limited to certain betting opportunities. The outcome of the bet – whether you win or lose – has no bearing on whether you get the free bet or not. There are currently very few bookmakers offering the free bet.

Cash back

This bonus offer is basically the same as the free bet, but with the condition that the bonus will only be given if the bet is lost. The lost bet is usually credited to the account in the form of bonus credit. It is an insurance. If you lose, you receive the bonus, you win, you do not get a bonus, but you get your winnings.

Bonus terms and conditions – pay attention to the fine print

Very important for all bonus offers are the conditions. A serious bookie can already be recognized by the fact that the conditions are listed in a transparent and clearly understandable manner and that they are easy to find without much searching.

Rollover factor

Rollover factor is commonly referred to as a sales request or withdrawal condition. This is the factor that indicates how many times you must convert the bonus and the deposit amount before a withdrawal is possible. Only after you have met this rollover requirement, you can you make a withdrawal without forfeiting your bonus balance.

Minimum odds quota

Most online bookmakers require in their rollover conditions that a certain minimum odds quota must be met. That is usually from 1.5 to 2.0. It should be noted here that it also depends on whether single and combination bets are included in the turnover requirements. If combined bets are allowed, it is relatively easy to achieve a total quota of 2.0. However, if only single bets are allowed, 2.0 is relatively high and bets on top favorites do not count.

The best bonus is?

When it comes to the best bonus for eSports betting, there are a number of factors to consider. Although at first glance, the percentage or absolute amount of the bonus amount is eye-catching, this is not the only criterion on which you should comprehensively research when choosing the bonus offer. A look at the bonus conditions is important and should be clearly provided by the bookmaker. Every reputable bookmaker is usually transparent and easy to understand. The best bonus does not always have to be the one with the highest bonus amount.
