Rio Olympics 2016 Betting Bonuses: Week One Roundup

Athletics fans can watch up to 42 sporting disciplines during 19 days of competition at the 2016 Olympic Games. During that time, there are potentially hundreds of betting markets covering most of the disciplines. Starting from 8 August, here is a roundup of the most generous bonus offers for week one of the action.

NetBet Sports | Olympic Football

NetBet is quoting competitive odds for the men’s football event at Rio 2016, with Germany available at 11/2 and Portugal at 6/1. Meanwhile, Brazil is still favourite at 10/13 despite stumbling through a 0-0 draw with Nigeria in the opening game.

In men’s football, the Olympic crown is the only major title to elude the Brazil national team. However, they need to play much better to improve on their early exit from the Copa America in June. Notably, the team played without Barcelona’s Neymar, who returns to the side in Rio.

Throughout the tournament, NetBet will have competitive deals for new customers. For starters, there’s a 50% boost up to £50 on first-time bets. This can be claimed by submitting the code WELCOME50 before making an initial deposit. The final step is to bet on minimum odds of 3/5.

If punters claim the welcome deal on their laptop then they will be eligible for a dedicated mobile offer. Simply opt in for the £10 free bet via NetBet’s promotions and stake a £10 mobile bet on odds of at least 3/5 to claim.

Ladbrokes Sports | Boosting Odds

Ladbrokes has one of the most diverse offerings for Olympic betting, with the likes of judo and sailing covered along with headline track and field events. Before placing a bet, punters can enter the code F50 to receive a free bet up to £50.

After entering the code, bettors can stake from £5 to £50 on their first bet to unlock the free offer. To qualify, Ladbrokes also requires the first bet to be on odds of 1/2 or greater.

During Rio 2016, Ladbrokes will host its Olympics Great Boosts event, which will enhance odds on select specials and events. At the start of the Games, punters can stake £25 on Team GB winning 25 or more gold medals and receive enhanced odds from 3/1 to 4/1.

Coral Sports | £5 to £25

Coral has a highly competitive welcome offer during the Games, giving new customers £20 in free bets. There’s no bonus code required, with customers only asked to make a £5 first bet on 1/2 odds during their first 14 days after signing up.

Paddy Power Sports | Dope Insurance

Paddy Power has a track record of planning amusing marketing campaigns. Well, this time the bookie has created an offer called Dope Insurance, which is designed to poke fun at the Russian doping scandal.

All through the Olympics, every medal event will feature a money back special if Russia is participating. Basically, Paddy Power will give punters up to £25 as a free bet if Team GB or Ireland finishes second to one of Russia’s 271 athletes cleared to compete.

For anybody who hasn’t joined Paddy Power, there are also three free £10 bets that can be unlocked with a £10 first bet on minimum 1/2 odds. Having three bets will give new users the chance to back multiple medal events with Paddy Power.

bet365 Sports | 100% Matched Bets

bet365 has a few bonuses and offers running during Rio 2016, with new players able to deposit between £10 and £200 for a 100% matched bet. After signing up, bet365 will send out a 10-digit code to enter before making a qualifying bet on odds of 1/2 or higher.

Coming next is a second 100% matched bonus for new and existing mobile customers, who can stake between £1 and £50 to claim the offer. First though, customers have to opt in to receive a code that must be entered before staking a bet of 1/2 odds or higher.

bet365 will host full-time markets for all men’s and women’s football matches during the games. This means bet365 users can potentially benefit from the Bore Draw Money Back offer that refunds bets as bonus credit if the game finishes 0-0 at full-time. At the games, Brazil and South Africa played out a 0-0 draw in their very first men’s match.
