All sportsbooks offer a range of different bonuses to their players, and Unibet Sportsbook Illinois is no exception. Due to the differences between these bonuses, it's a good idea to look at exactly what each offers.

  • No deposit bonuses: A popular option among players, an IL no deposit bonus is a great way to get started on a betting site without using your own funds. You can try out a range of different bets while never actually using your own funds. And, if you do win, you can keep those winnings.
  • Risk-free bets: Often found as part of a welcome bonus, risk-free bets in Illinois state are a great way to get a second chance when you place a bet. You will need to make a deposit and use your own funds to place a bet first. And, if the first bet wins, you don't get any additional benefits, you just get to keep your winnings. However, if that first bet loses, the sportsbook will refund you the bet amount as betting credit. You can then use the funds again for the second time and see if your next bet will actually win.
  • Daily & weekly profit boosts: Great options for regular players, odds boosts are a way to get a bigger win when you place a bet. You will find that you're somewhat restricted, as this type of bonus is normally attached to specific sports or events within the sporting calendar. However, because sportsbooks tend to offer them regularly, you can usually find one on a sport you're interested in.
  • Sign-up bonuses: Found on every sportsbook, these come in a wide variety of forms. The most common IL sign-up bonus is a risk-free bet or a match deposit bonus. A match deposit bonus tends to be quite lucrative as the sportsbook will match the amount you have put down as a deposit. This is usually around 100%, so you get double your bankroll to play with, which brings many benefits.
  • Free bets: Unlike risk-free bets, free bets are the perfect way to look at what a site offers without using your own funds. Betting sites will offer these smaller bets to players, so you can make a bet without spending yourself. You can even keep any winnings earned from the free bet.
