BetRivers Promo Code & Bonus Offer

Clicking this link and using the promo code 250MATCH unlocks a 100% deposit match up to $250. The match comes in the form of bonus bets, and you’ll get your bonus immediately after funding your account.

So using a real example: If you deposit $250 in your account, you’ll have $250 in cash and another $250 in bonus bets. You could put your bonus all on the Cubbies to win the World Series or you could space it out over 10 or 25 bets so not to put your eggs all in one basket. It’s entirely your choice.

You only have to put that $250 in bonus bets back into play one time before your winnings get converted to cash. That’s right: Gone are the days of ridiculous 25x rollovers. Legal online sports betting has its benefits!

Even if you took a 20% loss on the $250 in bonus funds, you’d still be up $200 from when you started … not bad! Claim this offer now.

What’s the Best Way to Deposit?

When making your first deposit into your BetRivers account, we’d suggest using online banking or PayPal. Those two options tend to be the easiest, but BetRivers also allows you to use major credit/debit cards such as Visa and Mastercard.

BetRivers Review

Action Rating: 9.1 out of 10

BetRivers’ $250 instant deposit match makes it worth having, and in addition to a strong sign-up offer, the sportsbook offers great perks like odds boosts and in-game cash-outs of existing bets. One downside: some of the other apps on the market are a bit easier to use.
