Smarkets have been creating a bit of a buzz around the place when it comes to sports betting. They take a slightly different approach to all the normal sports betting sites – you become a trader in sporting markets, as opposed to a sports bettor. One thing is consistent with the norm, though – a £10 welcome bonus when you sign up to the site.
The first thing to note, whether you consider yourself to be a sports bettor or a sports trader, is that you can only get your £10 welcome bonus if you're a brand new customer with the site. If you're already registered with them, you will have to look around the site for some of the other bonus options that they provide to their regular customers.
There are two very important aspects to note if you are expecting to make a deposit here and receive your welcome bonus. The first is that you MUST make your initial deposit by using a registered credit or debit card. If you use an eWallet services provider such as Skrill or Neteller, then you will not receive your bonus.
Secondly, in order to receive a bonus you need to make a minimum deposit of at least £20. This means that this bonus is actually a fifty percent welcome bonus, capped at £10, so no matter how much you deposit at the site as your first deposit, you will not receive a bonus higher than that welcome tenner.
