Hoops and Hockey Are Back!

After more than four months of waiting, basketball and hockey fans can rejoice. Both the National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League are back in action, which means some terrific betting promotions.

PlaySugarHouse and BetRivers are celebrating the return of both sports by offering free live bets on each sport. That’s right; there is a chance to win FREE live bets at two of the best sportsbooks in the industry.

NBA Free Bets

The NBA invited 22 teams to the “bubble” in Orlando, Fla., and they have scheduled eight regular-season games for each team. Even though the regular season does not provide as much excitement as the playoffs, these teams have been chomping at the bit to get back on the floor.

To celebrate the return of basketball, PlaySugarHouse and BetRivers are giving customers a chance to win $5 free in-play bets just for making some wagers. Any single game $50+ pre-game bet will give the customer a free $5 bet.

The best part is that there are plenty of games each day, and games take place almost all day long. There are live betting options throughout the day, and a chance to turn that free $5 bet into something much bigger.

Although there are several terrific NBA betting options at each site, these bets must be a pre-game wager to qualify for the reward. Feel free to make some wagers on each game, but this is a promotion that you want to take advantage of.

NHL Free Bets

The National Hockey League scrapped the rest of their regular season, and they are going straight into the playoffs. The league expanded its playoffs to 24 teams in 2020, which will give fans of more teams a chance to get excited about the return.

If the Stanley Cup Playoffs aren’t enough to get you excited about the return of hockey, hopefully, this exciting promotion will. Just like with the NBA, customers can receive free $5 in-play bets just for making a simple wager.

Bet a $50 pre-game single-game wager on any of the Stanley Cup Playoff games, and you will be rewarded with a free $5 bet to be used during one of the other games. Like with the NBA, the action starts early in the day and extends to late at night.

Terms and Conditions

Betters are eligible to earn up to two free bets per day, and that’s for each sport. That means that bettors can rack up $20 per day in free bets just for getting in on the action.

The free bets will be automatically loaded onto your account within 24 hours of making the qualifying bet.

For a complete list of all terms and conditions, be sure to check out the promotions tab at PlaySugarHouse.com and BetRivers.com. While you’re there, take a look at some of the other ongoing promotions being offered from each sportsbook.
