SPONSORED: All your online bookmakers under one roof
There can be no denying that sport is big business in the Republic of Ireland with racecourses, training pitches and sports stadia littered around the Emerald Isle. As such it is no surprise that the Irish-based punter can look to a huge number of online bookmakers touting for their business and while choosing which bookie to join can be a somewhat daunting task, several bookmaker comparison sites make the task a little easier.
One such site is bettingsites.ie which provides the punter with a list of all of the main bookmakers operating in the Republic of Ireland. Here you can find full reviews of all the leading betting providers as well as details covering the sports covered, competitiveness of odds, banking methods accepted and range of betting markets. This site is aimed at Irish-based customers and as such, all the offers associated with each bookmaker are only available to punters in the Republic of Ireland.
Here you will also find the latest news for sports popular in Ireland with full previews covering a range of events including the Grand National, Premier League, Hurling, Gaelic football, World Cup and European Championships.
Freebets.ie is another excellent website devoted to free bet offers from the leading bookies. All of the main bookmakers operating in Ireland offer new players some sort of welcome bonus, whether it be a free bet, risk-free bet, matched deposit bonus or no deposit bonus. These offers vary greatly and Free Bets Ireland compares each welcome bonus with full details of how to claim and the terms and conditions that must be met.
Generally speaking, new players must make an initial deposit in order to release a welcome bonus but that isn’t always the case. Some operators offer a bonus which requires no initial deposit although as a rule these are usually a small amount such as €1 or €5. It should be remembered that wagering requirements must always be met before you withdraw any winnings from the initial free bet bonus. Again, Free Bets Ireland provide full details of what these requirements are.
The Irish-based punter also has a vast choice when it comes to online casino slots and there is a website completely devoted to this area. Freeslots.ie provides full information on all the main online casinos operating in Ireland with details covering choice of slot games, range of casino games, live casino offerings and perhaps most importantly the free slot bonus which is usually aimed at new players. As with online bookies, each online casino provides some sort of welcome offer to new customers and these can range from free spins, free slot games, free bets and deposit bonuses.
It should be remembered that while welcome bonuses such as free bets and free slots are aimed at new players, existing customers can take advantage of many ongoing promotions such as cash-back bonuses and price boosts. There are many VIP programs that are free to join and reward regular players with cash prizes and other great offers. Again, full details of all these offers are provided in each bookmaker or casino review.
