2015 BetOnline Review
Please note that the button above will take to you the sports landing page for BetOnline. You can also sign up there to play poker or casino games. BetOnline is now one of the top US friendly online poker rooms. BetOnline has easy deposit methods for US players.
BetOnline started out as a sportsbook in 2001 called BestLineSports. It wasn’t until 2006 that the owners of BLS purchased the domain BetOnline.com. This was clearly a great decision. BetOnline has been growing since 2006. In 2015 they are now a gambling portal that caters to every type of gambler including sports bettors, casino players and poker players. BetOnline has done a great job at leasing top software suites from industry experts. This has also helped the gambling site gain lots of positive attention.
The biggest reason that BetOnline has seen such rapid growth in the past year is because of Black Friday. After BF poker players in the USA were unable to play online poker anywhere for the most part. BetOnline emerged as one of the leading poker rooms still accepting players in the United States. They have since signed up thousands of new players in the past few months. BetOnline doesn’t restrict any major countries from joining the site and playing real money, so practically anyone can play here right now.
The owners of BetOnline initially operated out of Cost Rica, which is unregulated, but they moved in 2004. BetOnline is licensed by the Government of Panama in 2015, which in my opinion is much safer than playing on an unregulated site. BetOnline is focused on the US market for the most part, which is why the site is only available in English right now. I expect BetOnline to translate the site into multiple languages in the future, but for now players are limited to playing in English and using USD.
BetOnline Bonuses and Promotions
BetOnline has a lifetime guarantee bonus of 25% on every single deposit you make. The bonus is open to sportsbook, poker and casino players, which is a feature that I really enjoy. The 25% deposit bonus is credited to your account instantly each time you make a deposit. Please be aware there is a 6x wagering requirement that needs to be met. You also need to use the bonus code “TXBONUS” or “CCBONUS” depending upon the banking method you use.
Casino players will be able to earn 10% cashback on all of their losses at BetOnline. If you are planning on only playing slots you can claim a 100% bonus on each deposit rather than the traditional 25% bonus. There are tons of promotions available to players at BetOnline as well including lots of sportsbook promos such as free bets and cashback bets.
BetOnline focuses on their online sportsbook predominately and it’s one of the best in the industry. Since most bettors are US the selection of sports to bet on is heavily influenced by sports that are popular in the USA. Bettors will be able to wager on baseball, basketball, hockey, football, auto racing, fighting, boxing, cricket, golf, tennis, rugby and soccer. As you can see there are still a few popular international sports available to bet on including soccer, cricket and rugby.
BetOnline uses the popular ASI sportsbook software, which is used by many online bookies. BetOnline posts live odds using American and Decimal odds. You can switch between the two different odds types as you please. The design of BetOnline makes it simple to wager on sports and there won’t be much of a learning curve for anyone.
BetOnline actually developed their own poker software. It is great when compared to other software suites. BetOnline Poker has been growing rapidly due to the fact that they are one of the best US poker sites still in the industry. 1000’s of new US players have signed up with BetOnline Poker this year and it has helped the poker room grow tremendously. BetOnline Poker opened in 2010 and is one of the biggest poker sites that has opened in the past year.
BetOnline Poker only spreads Texas Holdem and Omaha right now in cash games and tournaments. Cash games can be played around the clock at the BetOnline Poker room and the competition is relatively weak as a whole. The poker tournaments at BetOnline Poker have also been growing and there are now over $150,000 in guaranteed prize pools every month. There are also tons of daily freerolls with cash prizes up for grabs.
The BetOnline Casino is already established and many players use the online casino. Initially the casino used RTG software, but they switched recently to the DGS software. BetOnline is now one of the best casinos for 2015. The DGS software doesn’t boast as many games, but the quality of the games on the DGS software is much better than the majority of other casino games. There are a number of amazing 3D online slots in the BetOnline Casino as well, which are by far the best 3D slots you can play in any online casino.
You can play all of the popular casino games that you would expect to find in an online casino. These include blackjack, roulette, craps, baccarat, video poker, slots, casino poker and many other games. There are also multiplayer games and tournaments running in the BetOnline Casino. This makes it much more fun playing, as you don’t need to play by yourself. All of the casino games can be played instantly in your web browser at the BetOnline Casino, so you don’t need to worry about installing any software.
BetOnline has excellent player support that works 24/7 to ensure every player is taken care of. You can contact the support anytime you need help using toll-free numbers, email, live chat and Skype. I love the Skype support option, as you can start chatting instantly with one of the BetOnline support reps.
BetOnline Banking in 2015
BetOnline has excellent processing. They are one of the only online gambling sites that can process US deposits right now. This is a great sign for those of you living in the United States. You can currently fund your BetOnline account using Visa, MasterCard, Prepaid Cards, Neteller, Money Order, Moneybookers, Person2Person Transfer, Book2Book and Check. The minimum deposit is only $10 at BetOnline, but only when you deposit using Moneybookers or Neteller.
