Attracting fans was easy for Dodgers star Yasiel Puig. He plays baseball with flare and it is obvious to anyone who watches what extreme talent he posses. However, after analyzing him closely, skeptics point to holes in his game. GT Bets is the Puig of sportsbooks. Their bonuses are amazing, and promos are reason enough to play at the site. That said, if looking for reasons to be negative, they certainly could have lines up earlier and give customers a break on the juice when betting on live events.
If you are searching for a site with great bonuses, stop looking now. GT Bets gives account holders a free $250 on a deposit of the same size, and pitches in $500 if you send them $1000. It is unlikely you’ll find a better deal and particularly since you can start with as little as $35.
Very possibly the most innovative promo any sportsbook has is GT Bets’ free points on your favorite teams offer. While they used to give you a full point on some of the squads, and a half point on others, now you simply get a half point discount on each of your two favorite teams in college hoops and football, plus the NFL and NBA. If you think there is a team that is undervalued at the start of the year, or you know a team plays tight games, every time you bet on that squad, the spread will move half a point in your direction. This is particularly big when you like football teams that tend to be involved with games of point spreads that are three and seven. Laying six and a half, or getting three and a hook, is often the difference between winning and pushing.
Another really nice element of GT Bets is their engagement. They email their customers frequently and offer incentives to bet. Each week they have promos that vary from free bets to increased reload bonuses, or reduced juice on a particular game. All of these “extras” make up for the fact that they aren’t among the first books to post lines and other sites feature better and more live betting opportunities.
Yasiel Puig strikes out too much, and has a lousy stolen base percentage for a supreme athlete. That said, he has among the biggest upsides in the game, and any team would love to have him. Sure GT Bets has some flaws, but if you take advantage of what they do well, you’ll be a very satisfied customer.
