BetOnline Sportsbook Review

by Cliff Spiller on October 16th, 2019.

BetOnline Sportsbook launched in 2002 as an online casino. Since then, the gaming site expanded into a bookmaker and a poker room. The same company which owns Sportsbetting also owns BetOnline, so the sports betting opportunities and odds are the same as you'll find on Sportsbetting. The bonuses and payment methods are the same, as well.

This guide to BetOnline Sportsbook provides a full list of the payment methods and deposit bonuses at BetOnline.

  • Combination Sportsbook, Casino, and Poker Site
  • Live Betting App for Mobile
  • $1000 Welcome Bonus
  • Best Odds, Parlays, and Teasers

Payment Methods and Payout Times

BetOnline Sportsbook embraces crypto-currencies, as it supports deposits and payouts with 6 different virtual currencies. Players who prefer credit card deposits can use Visa or MasterCard, while debit cards and prepaid cards of each brand also work. Money orders, cashier’s checks, and wire transfers take a bit longer, but also work.

Deposit Methods

The deposit methods at BetOnline Sports are weighted toward the crypto-currencies. You'll find Bitcoin and 5 separate altcoins supported at the site. Credit card users shouldn't worry, though, because Visa and MasterCard are supported. Bettors who shy away from credit card payments or virtual currencies can make payments with money orders, cashier's checks, or wire transfers.

  • Bitcoin Cash
  • Ethereum
  • Litecoin
  • Dash
  • Ripple
  • Visa

  • Wire Transfer
  • Cashier's Check

Payout Options

Bettors should pick a favorite crypto-currency when using Bitcoin. Other options exist, including wire transfers, checks by couriers (FedEx, etc.), or Ecard Plus. For the fastest and safest ways to get a withdrawal, pick Bitcoin or one of the altcoins supported by BetOnline.

Accepted Customers

BetOnline Sports accept real money players from the United States. In fact, BetOnline accepts players from over 140 countries worldwide. For that reason, BetOnline Sportsbook includes best from all the major North American sports, but also sports all around the globe.

Quality of Customer Support

Given the huge number of countries supported, the quality of customer support depends on your preferred language. If English or Spanish is your first language -- or if you are fluent in one of those languages -- then you'll find BetOnline's customer support to be excellent.

Sign-Up Bonuses & Promotions

BetOnline has four different bonus promotions which apply to sports bettors. New players will find two separate sign-up bonuses: a Bitcoin bonus and a more traditional welcome bonus. Loyal customers can use one of two reload bonuses: a Crypto-Currency reload bonus and a more traditional reload bonus. Here's the full list.

50% Welcome Bonus

For any deposits between $55 and $1,000 at the Bodog Sportsbook, you'll receive a 50% welcome bonus. Use the promo code BOL1000 to activate this promotion. This offer has a 30-day limit, so remember to satisfy the rollover requirement in that time. To withdraw, you'll need to wager the amount of the bonus 10x.

The BetOnline Sportsbook bonus cannot be wagered on casino games, poker, live dealer games, or racebook bets. Also, deposits using Skrill or Neteller do not qualify for the BOL1000 bonus.

25% Sports Reload Bonus

Continuing customers also receive rewards from BetOnline Sports. Anytime you make a deposit between $50 and $500 and use the coupon code LIFEBONUS, you'll receive a 25% match bonus. The rollover for the 25% Reload Bonus is 6x the bonus, while you have 30 days to satisfy the playthrough.

Once again, you cannot use this offer to play casino games, live dealer games, or poker -- or to place racebook wagers. The bonus is non-transferable, and available only to bettors in the United States and Canada. Skrill and Neteller deposits do not apply.

100% 1st Time Crypto Bonus

Sports bettors also receive a 100% Crypto Bonus on your first deposits at the site. Input the code CRYPTO100 to activate the bonus when depositing with Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Dash, or Ethereum. The rollover requirement is 14x the bonus. This offer only applies to players in the USA and Canada.

35% Crypto Reload Bonus

Continuing crypto-currency bettors also receive bonus cash. When you make a reload deposit using a virtual currency and you use the promo code CRYPTO35, you'll receive house money at a 35% match rate. Again, this offer applies to US and Canadian customers who deposit using Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Dash, or Ethereum.

Software

BetOnline Sportsbook uses a combination of software from Digital Gaming Solutions (DGS) and DBG Limited NV. DGS handles the lion's share of sports bets on the site, with a full range of sportsbook and racebook bets. Bettors might have encountered DGS on Bovada, 5Dimes, Bookmaker, or MyBookie.

Quality of Odds

BetOnline's odds are competitive with rival bookmaker sites in the US online gambling market. Often, BetOnline's odds are better than what you'll find on Bovada. The odds are the same as you'll find on SportsBetting, which is now a sister site to BetOnline.

Betting Coverage

When you enter the BetOnline Sportsbook, you'll see six sports prominently displayed: Soccer (Association Football), Basketball, Football (American Football), Hockey, Golf, and Tennis. Click on "Other Sports" for other betting options. You'll find global sports like auto racing, boxing, cricket, and Olympics listed.

You'll also see popular leagues around the world, such as Aussie Rules, Rugby League, and Rugby Union. Niche sports like darts, handball, pool (billiard), and snooker have their own betting markets. Prop bets are available, including politics and "specials" (politics and culture).

Strengths of BetOnline Sportsbook

  • Accept US Customers: BetOnline accepts players from 140+ countries, but it caters to American sports bettors.
  • Online Casino and Poker: Players who like many forms of betting can make virtually any form of bet they want.
  • Crypto-Currency Payments: Few online sportsbooks support more forms of crypto-currencies than BetOnline.
  • Supports Mobile Betting: The full range of bets are available for Android and iOS devices.
  • Live In-Play Betting: Use your Android phone, tablet, iPhone, or iPad for up-to-the-minute live bets.

Overall Reputation

BetOnline receives a 5.12 rating on Ask Gamblers from 10 different reviewers. The overall number is dragged down because a couple of posters say the poker room is overrun by bots. That has nothing to do with the BetOnline Sportsbook, so readers should keep that in mind. In all, 13 different players posted complaints on AskGamblers; 10 of those complaints have been resolved. Having a complaint resolution score around 75% is far better than most competitors.

Also, US players should note that many US-friendly online gaming sites have a 1 to 2 rating on AskGamblers. As an unregulated sports betting market, customer protections are not high. AskGamblers allows real players to post their complaints, so it naturally attracts disgruntled customers. A 5+ rating is a positive review on AskGamblers.
