It is standard procedure for the first deposit to be matched by a certain percentage and if you open an account with Tipico you will have your first investment doubled. The sports bonus can go as high up as €100 and only those who reside in the Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium, Sweden, Germany and Austria qualify for this promotion. The good news is that all deposits made by players from one of these countries will qualify for this promotion and there are no additional prerequisites to meet.

Players can collect a maximum amount of €100, but the minimum deposit consists of just €10, so those who can’t afford to invest more, will at least have this money doubled. Each new customer is eligible for a single bonus and the bookmaker can require proof of address and identity, to clear any lingering suspicions. Those who are trying to abuse the promotion will have the money subtracted from their account and all the bonuses and resulting winnings will be forfeited.

With great bonuses comes responsibility

Before cashing out, players will have to play through the total amount three times on the sports betting section at odds of 2.00 or above. Once the bonus is wagered three times, it will be converted into cashable funds and players will decide what to do next with the money. Those who bet on events that are voided, canceled or postponed will need to place another wager and it is not acceptable to bet on two different outcomes of the same event.

The bonus is aimed at recreational players and those who open multiple accounts or belong to player syndicates or other associations are excluded. It is not possible to use the bonus in conjunction with other promotions that run live at the bookmaker and Tipico reserves the right to exclude professionals. A customer who is found to have disobeyed the rules, will be excluded not only from this promotion, but also future campaigns.

A one way trip to the blacklist

Once you are added to the blacklist, there is no way to clean your reputation so it is better to stay in accord with the rules. The bookmaker can go as far as to close the account of players and their decision is final, with the funds being seized. Once the bonus is claimed and cleared according to the rules, players can apply for a new bonus and participate in other campaigns or promotions.
