Double Odds 1st Goalscorer Bonus
Diversity and great odds are not the only things that attract punters to this bookmaker’s website. Ladbrokes offers a nice range of tempting bonuses as well. The 1st Goalscorer bonus is a perfect example of Ladbrokes’ generosity.
Punters are given the chance to double their odds, if they manage to guess correctly the first goalscorer in matches from several major competitions. All it takes is placing a bet on the football player, you believe will net the first goal for the match. If the player, you’ve selected bags a goal in the first 25 minutes, your odds will be doubled, on stakes up to £25.
However, this applies only to matches from the English (Leagues One and Two, Premier League, FA Cup etc.) and Scottish leagues. But Champions and Europa league matches, in which a British team participates, are also included in the offer.
Keep in mind, the game should be broadcasted live on one of the following channels – Sky Sport, BT Sport, Eurosport, ITV or the BBC. In case, the player you’ve selected nets an own goal, you will not qualify for the doubled odds bonus. The time of the first goal is determined by the results, published on the event’s official website, once the game has come to an end.
Furthermore, you can choose any medium to place your bets, be it your mobile phone, tablet or desktop computer. Bets via text messages or from betting outlets are also accepted and qualify for the doubled odds bonus. However, if you place your wagers over the telephone, you won’t qualify for this offer.
Don’t forget you must make your punt before the game in question kicks off. If the game has already started, don’t bother placing your bet, as it will be considered invalid and your odds will not be doubled, even if you’ve guessed the first goalscorer correctly. Additional winnings from the doubled odds are transferred into punters’ accounts 24 hours after the game, they’ve bet on, has finished.
