NHL betting promotions explained

There are no shortage of different NHL betting promotions that you can claim at sportsbooks, so knowing the difference between them and how they all work is useful. Here are the different NHL betting promotions available:

NHL welcome bonus

Sportsbooks offer welcome bonuses as a reward for signing up and creating an account with them, which can even involve specific bonuses for NHL or hockey betting. Most commonly, welcome bonuses top up your account with bonus funds once you have made your first deposit.

NHL matched deposits

Matched deposits are a common promotion that effectively double your deposit by matching the amount (likely up to a certain limit) in bonus funds. This sometimes has the condition that it must be wagered on a certain event or league, such as the NHL or a game within it.

NHL risk-free bets

Risk-free bets offer a refund to your account in the event that the bet loses, thereby taking out the risk involved.

These are sometimes made available for bets on specific leagues, events, or games, including the NHL.

NHL no-deposit bets

Perhaps the simplest bonus of them all, no-deposit free bets are free bets that you can earn without any deposit requirements, thereby allowing you to place a bet without actually having to risk your money. These can be useful for getting started in NHL betting if you’re new to it.

NHL matched free bets

This is a bonus that matches the amount of a bet you have placed in the form of a free bet (in effect, giving you two bets for the price of one). The free bet is earned regardless of whether your initial bet wins.

NHL reload bonus

Sportsbooks regularly offer their existing customers reload bonuses, which entails rewards (most commonly, bonus funds) for depositing a set amount or wagering on a specified event, such as an NHL game.

NHL bonus codes

Bonus codes can be redeemed at sportsbooks during the sign up process or when you’re depositing money into your account. These may offer NHL-focused rewards, such as a free bet on the NHL.
