Christmas & New Year Betting Offers 2018/2019 – Promotions For New & Existing Customers

christmasWhen it comes to online bookmaker offers you don’t need to wait until the Boxing Day sales to get the best deals.

The run up to Christmas and the week through to New Year is one of the most active times of year for many betting sites and just like any other type of business this creates competition for customers , which means it is the best time of the year to get high value new and existing customer offers.

Obviously there are a lot of new offers available right now and it can be difficult to spot the wheat from the chaff. To save you some time on this page I will cover the best offers for new and existing through Christmas 2018 into New Year 2019.

I’ll keep this page updated daily covering the latest and best deals as soon as they come out.  Many of the top offers can be time or threshold limited and on days such as Boxing Day the most generous offers can sell out very quickly.

We will start with five of the best new customer offers that have been launched specifically for this season. It is highly likely these offers will disappear and revert back to lower amounts after Christmas so this is by far the best opportunity to get some new online betting accounts:
