What Are the Typical Offers Available for Snooker?

Of all the sports listed on My Betting Sites, snooker has the smallest amount of offers. This partly reflects the popularity of the sport, but for the higher profile tournaments, it is possible to find some.

It is possible to get some extra value when betting on snooker with some clever knowledge.

1) Know about loyalty bonuses

A handful of the bookmakers award weekly free bets. Some require qualifying to be made on football, but there are a couple that allows snooker too.

That means, if regularly bets are made on snooker during the week, a £10 free bet will be awarded every week.  Paddy Power’s VIP offer is the best to consider, and full details are found in this loyalty scheme article

2) Accumulator bonuses

Now snooker might not be the most common sport to bet on accumulators, but it is possible to earn a bonus on them. Based on the number of selections, it is possible to earn a 60% bonus on your winnings. There are also a small number of bookmakers that provide insurance on snooker accumulators

3) Money back specials

For the big tournaments, there will be money back specials. In the past, offers such as money back if a player makes a century has been available. When these tournaments occur, the best thing to do is to check this page.

What Are the Best Betting Sites for Snooker?

Betfred is the official sponsor of the World Championship. It recently extended this sponsorship to until 2019. If you’re a fan of snooker, it would be advantageous to bet with Betfred to reward their support of the sport.

Based on the lack of offers, it is recommended that you prioritise a site that has a loyal scheme such as Paddy Power. Otherwise, check this page during big tournaments as sites such as 10Bet usually have special offers.

All betting sites listed My Betting Sites have snooker markets, and all have competitive odds.

My Betting Sites recommends checking this page for offers and using an odds comparison tool. Doing both ensures that you’re getting the best value.
