MyBookie Seeking the 5 year mark
Sportsbooks that are new generally come with a word of caution. Once the 5 year mark is met, players seem more confident as risk is substantially lower than a book in its first few seasons. MyBookie management seems to understand it has to earn player’s trust with time served and has to work to put the brand in front of players in an industry that no longer sees very much sportsbook hopping. Predictem is not aware of any open disputes against MyBookie and the sportsbook carries a perfect payout record to date.
Sign-up Bonus - $1000 is $1000
For some players what matters most in a signup bonus is the value. Essentially, how much do I have to invest to have this money? That investment may be in the form of time or wagering activity. For other sports bettors, the thought process is “I plan to bet this season so where can I pad my bankroll?”. This bonus is for the latter. It’s a high max free-play bonus that can pad the bankroll. Players should take it because they want to give MyBookie a try, not because they want to bet out this $1000, which is why Mybookie has somewhat complicated terms.
Bonus Terms - If you are trying to figure it out, it’s not for you.
This title is blunt but true. If you are trying to figure out how much you have to bet to roll over $1000 free play 15 times, you may not be up for this kind of commitment. The bonus also comes with a 30 day hold. If you were to rollover this bonus in 30 days, you would have to bet $1,500 per day or $45,000 in the month. There is another line of fine print that is important, money lines at or beyond 1 to 2 (-200) favorites or 2 to 1 (+200) underdogs do not count towards you bonus requirement. Summarize what that means? Typical straight -110 bets on sides and totals count as normal. Betting the moneyline on pretty much any team versus the Sacramento Kings? Not going to count!
Reduce Juice - No, -110 Standard lines throughout
Unique Odds - Basketball Lines Can be Special
MyBookie offered some nice value on NBA and College Basketball. Each night there was often at least one College Basketball or NBA game that stood out from the market. Half time lines often had a unique price when compared to the market.
Bitcoin at MyBookie
MyBookie has one of the lowest minimum deposits at $25 however they have the longest wait time of two hours for deposits to be credited to your balance. Three business days is the potential wait time for a bitcoin withdrawal which is our 10th longest wait time. All bitcoins withdrawals are free and MyBookie will process $40,000 per month in Bitcoin payouts.
Being sub-5 years means players adverse to risk will be deterred. The bonus, though has a high max, has the most terms of any bonus on our list. The Bitcoin process is relatively slow. No MLB dimeline.
MyBookie has one of the nicest websites of all sportsbooks, snappy and clean. The wagering menu is extensive with many future bets offered for offseason sports. Large $1,000 free-play maximum.
