Sports Interaction's Bonuses and Promotions

10% Welcome Bonus up to $100

The standard welcome bonus at Sports Interaction is 10% up to $100. Sports Interaction offers periodic special bonuses throughout the year, usually during events like the Super Bowl or March Madness. The launch of the NFL's regular season also includes seasonal bonus promotions, too. SIA's terms of use for their bonus promotions are complicated, so read through the wagering requirements and other terms before asking for a deposit bonus.

When you begin playing in SIA's live dealer casinos, your first bet is free. If you win the live casino bet, you'll pocket the cash in your player account like you would any other bet. If you lose the bet, the cashier deposits the same amount back into your account. Once the wagering requirement is met, the bonus money is cashable.

Specials Bets

The "Specials" bet section includes current events in news and entertainment. For instance, current bets include the winners for the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards, with sections like Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Picture. 

Entertainment Bets

The "Entertainment" bets focus on similar subjects. In this case, you'll find a full list of bets for the 92nd Academy Awards ceremony (The Oscars). Over the course of a year, the specials and entertainment sections change significantly. 

Other Sports

SIA also has a section called "Other Sports". This is a catch-all for any bets not covered in the main sports betting markets. At the moment, the only other sport listed is Cycling. 

Weekly Pick'em

The Weekly Pick'Em section is a defunct set of bets which covered the early part of the NFL regular season. It included a Top 50 Leaderboard and a set of prizes for the top bettors. While the Pick'em promotion is over, it's an example of the kind of seasonal betting promotions members can enter. 

Live Betting

The live betting section on SIA sportsbook updates throughout the day. These are the in-game bets you can make as sporting events happen. These might include prop bets like who might score the next basketball or goal. Or they might include updated point spreads and over/under totals, depending on the action in the game. 

Because these cover a world of action, you'll find live bets on the site all hours of the day and night. Currently, SIA offers bets on Eastern European soccer, hockey, tennis, golf, handball, and basketball matches. You'll also find international rugby matches, including a game between the USA and Fiji. The live betting page updates throughout the day as games and matches begin around the world. 

Online Casino

Sports Interaction's online casino uses software from Playtech, iSoftBet, Leap Gmaing, and 1x2 Network. Playtech supplies most of the online slots, so you'll have access to many licensed slots and progressive slots with million-dollar jackpots. 

SIA Casino Slots 

Play licensed slots like Batman Begins, Batman v. Superman, or the Justice League Slot. The Batman line includes over a half-dozen games inspired by the 1960s tv show Batman. You can also play Terminator, Rocky, Ronnie O'Sullivan's Sporting Legends, AP McCoy's Sporting Legends, Grease, and Gladiator. If you prefer more traditional slots, try games like Galactic Streak, Berry Berry Bonanza, Astro Babes, and Chests of Plenty. The list of progressive slots is impressive. Gladiation has a jackpot over $4.1 million, while God of Storms  and Age of Gods each share a jackpot over $542k. 

SIA Casino Table Games

The list of table games and video poker selection is just as impressive. Remember that these can be played as mini-games while you make live in-play bets at the Sports Interaction Sportsbook. 

Live Casino Games

Playtech supports Sports Interaction's Live Casino. This means SIA features groundbreaking games like Quantum Roulette and Quantum Blackjack. Playtech's "Quantum" series of games applies random multipliers up to 500x to winning straight up roulette numbers. This gives players a chance to win a huge jackpot when playing traditional table games like blackjack and roulette. A quantum boost activates multipliers up to 50x, while a quantum leap activates multipliers up to 500x. Multipliers are assigned after betting has closed and before the wheel spin happens.

Here's the full list of novel live dealer games at Sports Interaction. Along with the traditional live casino games, you can play 13 other non-traditional games with live dealers.
