You might have already heard of BetOnline. They’re one of the top sportsbooks in the world. Boasting almost 20 years of experience in the sports betting industry, you can be assured that they’re reliable, trustworthy, and have a great product. Most importantly, they’re US-friendly, so those of you who are new to the betting scene since the legalization of sports betting in June 2018 can get in on the action.
Based in Panama City, BetOnline Sportsbook creates a fantastic sports betting product that also shares the same skin as Sportsbetting.ag (if you noticed similarities in odds, service staff, etc.) They have had issues in the past with payouts, but the past few years they have been running smoothly and we haven’t heard of any disgruntled players looking to complain.
BetOnline has a great selection of sports betting options, including professional North American sports, collegiate sports, international sports and more. They have straight bets, parlays, teasers, pleasers, if-bets, reverses, prop bets, and futures betting. Any wager you’d like to make, you can do it at BetOnline.
Their prop bet selection is one of the best we’ve seen, and their futures are usually the first to hit the board. They are always on top of the game and have competitive odds out before any other book (Ladbrokes and 5Dimes are their biggest competitors in this department).
They also have a clean, user-friendly live betting platform. While it’s not as advanced as some other sportsbooks, it definitely can compete. The odds at BetOnline are some of the best we’ve seen, not only do they have the early lines, but the vig isn’t bad either!
Signing up at BetOnline is fairly simple. You input your personal details to create your account, verify your email, and you’re ready to go.
Deposit options available at BetOnline are fairly standard. They accept credit cards, debit cards (with a 7.5% fee on deposits and a minimum of $50), Skrill and Neteller wallet options (minimum of $10 deposit), Bank transfers (minimum of $1,000) and quite a range of cryptocurrency options such as Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, LiteCoin, and Dash (minimum of $20). There are no fees associated with the crypto deposits, which can make them appealing to those who only want to make smaller deposits for recreational betting.
Payouts on the other hand, have fees attached to them, except the Cryptocurrencies. Usually for a crypto withdrawal, it takes roughly 1-2 days to process, which is fairly standard. If you request a check or bank wire transfer, it will take about one week to process and you’ll be hit with some fees ($25 processing fee for checks and $50 processing fees for bank wire).
Upon sign up, you are eligible to claim a welcome bonus of 50% up to $1000. This bonus will have a rollover requirement, which means you have to roll over the cash 10 times before you receive your bonus. They also offer a lifetime bonus guarantee.
Other promotions include a $25 live betting freeplay – for your first live betting experience, they will give you $25 to try out their software. If you like to play from your phone, their sportsbook is mobile friendly – and of course they have a bonus to get you to try it out.
A $50 mobile betting freeplay will help your bank roll and show you the ropes of online betting from your smartphone. They also offer a 50% crypto-bonus, which is new this fall, that allows new crypto bettors to earn 50% up to $500 on their first crypto deposit. Last but not least, they have a risk-free $25 prop bet bonus that will return your wager to you if your bet doesn’t win.
It’s great to take advantage of the bonuses available if you plan to be betting quite frequently. They’re essentially free money, so it’s always nice to have some of that lying around in your betting account!
BetOnline caters more to intermediate or recreational bettors. They offer rather high wagering limits, with middle to high stakes. In some cases, they do offer some big boy bets, with high limits of up to $25,000.
If you’re looking to talk to a customer service representative, you have a few options at BetOnline. They have 24/7 customer service available via phone, email and live chat. Their live chat is probably the most commonly used option and seems to be rather efficient from our experience.
If you choose email you could be waiting a few days before you receive a response, so it’s fairly evident why most people choose live chat or phone.
