Aussie Millions and Australian Open Offers at 888 Sport
Posted at 10:10 2011-01-19
888 Sport, the bookmaking arm of the famed UK gambling company 888, has got into the spirit of Melbourne’s crammed summer sports schedule with some great offers to get you in the game.
As a welcome bonus, 888 Sport is offering up a $20 No Loss bet for new depositing members. The No Loss bet means you can place a wager on any sporting event and, if it loses, 888 Sport will return your bet in the form of a free wager for the value you lost.
Why take a shot at hitting it big on the poker action at Crown with your No Loss bet?
888 already have a team of qualifiers raring to launch an assault for the title at the Aussie Millions Main Event, but if you are not one of them, you can still get a piece of the action thanks to their market on the poker tournament.
Phil Ivey is an extremely short priced favourite at a quote of $34 and Gus Hansen looks poor value at the $51 mark to become the first man to win the Australian Main Event twice. While the board looks tough to beat, 888poker ambassador Shane Warne could offer a little value for the punters at the $1001 quote.
If you have a bit of inside information or know one of your mates who is in a bit of form, you can put a request in to 888 Sport to back them and they will likely be able to assist with setting a price for that player.
Picking the winner may be a little tough and could be quite expensive should your selection get heads up and fail to convert. 888 are quite happy to assist by offering betting on the final nine players in the event with a placing payout at 1/8 of the odds of that player winning. A Grant Levy final table appearance could see you cash in to the tune of around 31 times the amount you staked on him.
The poker is not the only action in town though, and 888 has their finger on the pulse across town with a range of markets on both the men’s and women’s Australian Open tennis. You can place bets on the overall champions in each event, or hit up action on individual matches or even sets. There is also a range of props to keep even the biggest action junkies entertained for hours.
They also have two great promotional offers on the tennis. The popular Five Set special will refund your bet up to $50 with a free bet if your selection goes the distance but loses in the fifth set. The other one is sure to prove just as popular with the punters. In the event that a match is tightly contested and goes to tie break in three of the sets, all punters who placed a wager on either player in the match will be awarded with a free bet up to $50 in value – win or loss!
These great promotions are sure to make the Summer of poker and tennis just that much more interesting. You can get into the action by joining 888 Sport today!
