Online sportsbooks seem to be doing their best to turn the entire sportsbetting world into big, big Steelers fans.
While it's not as juicy as the Mansion promo, BetWWTS is offering a free $100 bet on the Steelers' Monday night game. Here are the details from the site:
"Free $100 Bet - No strings attached
Congratulations – you are about to make a no-lose bet.
Simply bet $100 on the Pittsburgh Steelers at -1½ against Jacksonville this Monday.
If the Steelers win we’ll pay you out. If the Steelers don’t cover we’ll refund your $100 bet right back into your account. No rollovers, no questions asked and you can withdraw your money immediately.
*Terms and conditions apply… further details coming soon."
Now, yes, indeed, that last sentence makes one wonder, as far as exact terms and conditions, so you might keep an eye on this one if you are of the wary type. But "No rollovers, no questions asked and you can withdraw your money immediately." is pretty clear, and BetWWTS is one of the most reputable books out there, so odds are very great that the offer is legit and exactly what it appears to be.
BetWWTS is currently running a 20% up to $200 signup bonus, and they'll also throw in a free $20 futures bet on the 2007 NFL Super Bowl winner when you sign up. BetWWTS offers pretty nice lines and it's pretty easy to find offsetting lines at other books to work off the bonus, as outlined here.
Bonuses like these (deposit $1,000, get a $200 bonus) are good ones to start with, as it's a decent bonus and is relatively easy to bust out, as you can simply bet $1,200 on one game, bet the other side at a book like Pinnacle, and often bust out the BetWWTS account in one bet, pocketing the bonus money on going on your merry way. Once you clear a decent number of those you can work your way up to some of the bigger bonuses such as the deposit $5,000, get a $1,000 bonus ones offered at CRIS, DSI, YouWager, etc.
Edit: They tweaked the terms on the BetWWTS deal to just apply to bets made on the game by new signups (and capped the new signups elgibile at 1000 total), instead of it being open to everyone.
