Types of Kentucky Sportsbook Promos

The above is not the only promos for new and existing users. Every sportsbook is offering profit boosts, parlay odds increases, and the like. Below are some you can expect to see in Kentucky sportsbooks.

Odds Boost - An odds boost gives better odds on a bet than what it would normally be. An example would be a sportsbook boosting LeBron James Over 0.5 points from (-100000) to (+100). Most odds boosts come with a wager limit.

Profit Boost - A profit boost is similar to an odds boost, only you add the boost to a wager that already has set odds. A wager at (-110) could get a 25% profit boost to give it plus-money odds.

Parlay Odds Boost - Usually with a minimum of 3 or 4 legs, a parlay boost is a way to get better odds on a parlay.

Stepped-Up Parlay Boost - The more legs you add to your parlay, Single Game Parlay, or Single Game Parlay+, the better odds boost you get.

Bonus Bet - Sportsbooks can give out bonus wagers to welcome the start of a new season, among other reasons. Bonus bets usually are capped.
