The start of the NFL Season is the hottest time of the year for online bookmakers, many of which offer unique reloads or at the very least deposit bonuses or free bets to new customers. This time of year can be one of the best for bonus hunters as each sportsbook is vying for bettors to deposit and bet with them throughout the 2013 Season.
We’ll break down the bonuses at each of the sportsbooks we promote as we get ready for an exciting and hopefully profitable 2013-14 NFL betting season. We recommend using these promotions when betting our NFL Divisional season bets.
TopBet.eu offers an excellent 2013 NFL Kickoff Bonus for all users who signed up before August 1st, 2013. So, if you have made a TopBet account before this date, you’re eligible for 50% up to $500 NFL Kickoff Reload Bonus. Best of this bonus comes with just a 3x rollover.

GTBets doesn’t offer any unique NFL promotions, but they do provide bettors a host of deposit bonuses, reloads and unique rewards. NFL gamblers will be able to choose from a 100% Sign-Up Bonus up to $150 or a 50% Sign-Up Bonus up to $500. These must be cleared via point rollover which amounts to a 5x rollover rate. Also, there are automatic reload bonuses if your account applies.
One of the coolest promos is the free half-point promotion for one NFL team per season. Pick your favorite team and get a free half-point in favor of their line movement all season long. For example, say the Broncos are -6 favorites; bettors can knock that down to -5.5 at no extra cost. The half-points are free even on key numbers such as 3 and 7.
Arguably the top sportsbook for US sports bettors, Bovada offers all new customers a 50% Sign-Up Bonus up to $250 in free bets. They offer a free NFL betting guide to bettors and a large variety of markets, including some of the best live betting markets. Mobile betting is available, as well.

Just enter 50NFL13 on your next deposit screen to receive this lucrative offer.
Bookmaker.eu offers their normal Sign-Up Bonus as a reload offer until October 31st, 2013. This means bettors can receive up to $2,500 in NFL Reload Bonuses on this promotion. However, the offer gets better because bettors can use this promotion two times. If they clear their first rollover, they can then deposit again and take advantage of the promotion twice with the ability to earn up to $5,000 in free play bonuses.

BetDSI is the sister sportsbook of Bookmaker.eu and offers similar promotions to the book while managing their own markets and odds. Their current NFL promotion features two bonus offers for bettors, both of which come in the form of a free play.

Deposit bonuses and NFL seasonal promotions can be crucial to jumpstart your bankroll, especially if you are a smaller bettor.
