BetOnline is yet another online sportsbook that caters to the sports betting needs of North America. As one of the most trusted names in North American sports betting, it should come as no surprise that BetOnline is one of the fastest growing bookmakers in the United States. Like Bovada, BetOnline’s site utilizes a clean black and red layout with an emphasis on organization.
By simply clicking the sportsbook tab, you will be redirected to the sports betting home page. It is here where you will immediately see the week’s top lines as decided by quantity of wagers placed. If the event, game, or match upon which you would like to wager is not listed immediately on the home page, the left side of the screen features a list of sports with drop-down menus able to help you locate the exact team or league you want to be on.
For any sportsbook, organization and ease of use should be a top priority, and with BetOnline it is very evident that it is. All in all, getting around the site is as easy as you could ask for and does not present any sort of confusion, even if you are not familiar with this or any other online sportsbook.
As is the case with most modern sportsbooks, BetOnline features an attractive live betting section that allows you to place wagers on sporting events as they are unfolding. The live betting section on BetOnline is comprehensive in that there are numerous events every day and a large quantity of propositions accompanying each match/game. One complaint that I have about BetOnline’s live betting, however, is the fact that most of the options are limited only to US-based sporting events and teams. While you will be able to live bet on things like NBA and college basketball games night in and night out, live betting for sporting events from other countries and more obscure sporting leagues are not all that commonly found on BetOnline.
The multi-event aspect of BetOnline’s live betting feature is something unique to BetOnline. With this feature, a bettor can select up to two sporting events that they would like to solely focus and bet upon. As opposed to scrolling through all the live betting options and picking the one you would like, the multi-event feature allows you to preload the game you want to bet upon so that no navigation is required once the match or game begins. All you have to do is sit back, watch the game unfold, and place wagers accordingly.
Despite BetOnline’s live betting options not being as diverse as some of their competitors, they have recent been delving in to soccer much more than they had in the past. Now and in the coming months, you will find that an increasing number of global soccer matches are able to be bet upon week in and week out. The English Premier League as well as high-profile international matches are regularly able to be bet upon via live betting at BetOnline. This, more than likely, ties into the growing popularity of soccer in North America, which is the market BetOnline caters to first and foremost.
As far as promotions go, BetOnline offers quite a few; some that are ongoing, and others that are strictly reserved for first-time depositors. Unfortunately, BetOnline’s initial sign-up bonus (25% matched up to $1,000) leaves a lot to be desired. Still, the high dollar amount attached to the bonus means that you can add a lot of additional funds to your player bankroll via your initial deposit.
On top of the initial deposit, BetOnline offers another deposit bonus that sees you be awarded bonus monies for each and every deposit you make after the initial one. In addition to this, things like MLB Dime Lines and free play for first time live and mobile bettors. The promotions offered by BetOnline may not be the best in the industry, but they are some of the best available for North American-based sports bettors. Of course, with each and every bonus/promotion there are terms and conditions attached, so be sure to familiarize yourself with them before ever committing to a deposit bonus or any other type of promotion.
BetOnline’s cash out and deposit options are what really impressed, as there are numerous options for both. For those looking to make a deposit, not only can you deposit via most major credit/debit cards, you are also able to make use of a few e-wallets (Neteller, Skrill) as well as checks. Bank wires are another accepted form of deposit.
With regard to withdrawals, you can have your player funds loaded to your Skrill or Neteller account, sent to you via a check, or wired directly to your bank account. Of course, each and every payout and payment method have rules and regulations attached, so it is best if you familiarize yourself before attempting to deposit or withdraw via any specific method.
BetOnline has 24/7 customer support able to answer any and all of your inquiries. Able to be reached by phone or by email, BetOnline boasts a competent customer service staff that is more than capable of handling any and all issues you may encounter. Going in depth a bit more, when you call BetOnline’s customer service, they do not make you wait for extended periods of time on hold and are pretty good at answering your calls quickly. With emails too, responses are generally received quickly (within a day or less).
