If you live in the United States, Brazil or Mexico, and you intend having a bet on the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Bovada Poker is offering you a special incentive to place your bets with the site´s sportsbook – the potential to turn your betting action into a $10,000 trip to Las Vegas.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicks off next Thursday, and the action off the pitch is expected to be just as lively as the action on the pitch. Millions of dollars will be wagered on the outcomes of games, the top goal scorer and the outright winner. Bettors all around the world will also have the opportunity to bet on props such as the number of corners, the time of the first goal and how many players get booked.
Bettors living in the United States, Brazil and Mexico have a special incentive to place their bets at Bovada due to a new promotion launched by the site. The promotion will pay out dozens of cash prizes from $20 to $1,000, and dozens of $55.00 tournament tickets, with the outright winner of the promotion winning an all-expenses-paid $10,000 Las Vegas trip.
How Bovada´s World Cup Promotion Works
Bovada´s World Cup promotion is very easy to understand. Simply make your first deposit with Bovada Poker bet on any 2018 FIFA World Cup match by 7th July, and you will receive an entry into a “World Cup Freeroll” tournament. There will be a total of nine “World Cup Freeroll” tournaments taking place every Thursday and Sunday evening at 7.30 p.m. (ET) from next Thursday until 12th July.
Each “World Cup Freeroll” tournament pays fifteen places ($20.00 each) and there is no limit on how many freeroll tournaments you can enter – provided you have placed a bet on a 2018 FIFA World Cup match by the day before. However, in addition to the $20.00 cash prizes, you will qualify for the “World Cup Freeroll Final” on Sunday 15th July if you finish in the top three in each of the nine freeroll tournaments.
Every player who qualifies for the final will receive a $55.00 tournament ticket and play for the first prize of a $10,000 trip for two to Las Vegas. There are also consolation prizes for players who finish in second to tenth places, ranging from $100 for finishing in tenth place to $1,000 for finishing in second place. Overall, it´s not a bad promotion if you are going to have a bet on the 2018 FIFA World Cup anyway!
Don´t Know How to Bet on the 2018 FIFA World Cup?
If you know very little about soccer betting (which we find hard to imagine if you live in Brazil or Mexico), Bovada has prepared a 2018 FIFA World Cup Betting Guide. The guide explains the different betting options from covering the spread to parlaying games together to increase how much you can win. There is also information about moneyline betting, double-chance betting and over/under betting.
In addition to before-the-event betting, Bovada will also be giving players the opportunity to bet “In Play”. Betting during a match can add to the excitement if you are watching it, and also provides the opportunity to recover losses on a losing before-the-event wager or covering all potential outcomes if your before-the-event bet is winning (also known as “In-Play Arbitrage Betting”).
You can access the betting guide via the Bovada website, where you will also be able to see the current odds. If you do not yet have an account with Bovada, you can register for one quickly and simply by visiting Bovada.lv. However, rather than take advantage of the sports betting bonus for first deposits (50% up to $250), you will likely be better off taking advantage of the poker bonus (100% up to $500) – a full explanation of which is provided in our Bovada Poker review.
