With only a few years in operation, MyBookie Sportsbook managed to leapfrog over some of the big online books and made a name for themselves as one of the best sportsbooks for North American players.
Based out of Costa Rica, MyBookie established themselves in 2014 and was off to a rocky start, but over the past few years, pulled their act together and are impressing the entire sports betting industry.
With one of the best sports betting softwares on the market, MyBookie created a very user-friendly, easy to use platform for sports bettors. While sports betting is their main focus, they also have a great racebook and online casino option for those who want to mix it up every once in awhile.
Since they are very North American-centric, their sports offerings are all North American professional and collegiate sports – offering very little international sporting events, but they do offer some international soccer odds from Premier League and La Liga.
If you’re looking for live betting, you’re in the right place. MyBookie has great live betting odds, that quickly updates and is very easy to use.
They have a great and competitive prop bet options for most sports, which can be enticing to more intermediate to advanced bettors. Their futures are usually posted early, and have great odds attached to them, making them a great option for betting on season win totals or betting on the Super Bowl winner (before the season even starts).
To say it’s easy to sign up at MyBookie is an understatement. You can sign up for an account in seconds, entering your basic account information, and you’re ready to go. The next step will be to enter your bonus code and make a deposit, which kind of go hand in hand as you do all of this on the same screen.
Deposit options at MyBookie are fairly standard – they offer Visa, Mastercard, Bitcoin, and Bank Wire Transfers. There are a few other options including check, P2P, and phone transfers, but those aren’t nearly as commonly used. There is a minimum deposit of $45 across the board, with the exception of Bitcoin, with a lower deposit limit of $25.
You can claim a first deposit bonus of 100% up to $1,000 which essentially will allow you to double your bank roll as long as you meet all of the requirements associated with the bonus. For instance, you must roll over the deposit 5x within 30 days to claim the full benefit.
They also have a great risk-free $20 bet option. You can earn $25 if your first real money wager loses, you simply e-mail their customer service and a rep will assist with putting the money back in your account.
You also cannot cash out your funds until the bonus is cleared. So, it’s wise to make sure you will be betting frequently enough to roll it over or you won’t be able to receive your cashout.
Speaking of cashing out, there are cashier fees with almost every banking option. If you use Bitcoin, you can make withdrawals free of fees, putting more money in your pocket. Withdrawals are usually completed in two business days, and cryptocurrency withdrawals can be processed within 24 hours. Checks and Bank Wires take roughly one week to process. These are fairly standard processing times for any sportsbook so it shouldn’t be a big consideration or a dealbreaker.
When it comes to customer service, MyBookie has fairly standard options that other sportsbooks also have. You can use their live chat support, which is usually the most common – it is available 24/7. Their customer service representatives are usually helpful when handling issues.
