Ever get a really nice shirt in say, black and then go back and also get the same one in blue? Sportsbetting Sportsbook is that blue shirt. The fit and style are similar to BetOnline. So why get an account at SportsBetting? Because you can. Unlike many sister books under the same parent company, you can bet at and receive the signup bonus, at both online sportsbooks.
SportsBetting.ag, formerly SportsBetting.com, was acquired by the BOL group in the summer of 2012. Prior to 2012, Sportsbetting was a large book in its own right but prior ownership, Real Entertainment Ltd, used the Sportsbook.com Group’s white label program to run it. That meant slow payments, wagering disputes, and software issues. Once Sportsbetting was acquired every owed player was paid, and every player with a betting dispute saw it settled in their favor. In the last SIX years, bettors have been treated like VIPs and leaving very few players remembering anything that came before. Today Sportsbetting is one of the largest and most well run online gambling brands.

Sportsbetting Sportsbook - the Early Days
Before Sportsbetting players were fortunate enough to learn their book and therefore their betting accounts were now under the BOL group, there were years of ups and downs. Because Sportsbetting.com was one of the premier gambling brands and website domains, the early issues the book faced with their host and operator were not insurmountable. In fact, the ownership of Sportsbetting.com often overruled their operator’s decisions in favor of the player on things like wagering and bonus disputes. This kept the Sportsbetting.com brand in good standing with the bettor community while fellow sportsbooks under the Sportsbook.com Group confiscated balances and already earned bonuses. However at the end of original ownership’s run, the hosting company was too much to overcome, even for Real Entertainment Ltd. Sportsbetting.com ownership group wanted all players to feel their funds were safe and decided they could take the brand as far as they could. So, at a time when player’s were facing extensive delays in receiving their withdrawals, Sportsbetting.com was sold to a BetOnline Group with a perfect reputation for payouts and customer service. Since then, the Sportsbetting name has been synonymous with what you expect from an industry-leading online sportsbook.
Sportsbetting.com in its infancy
Sportsbetting Sign-up Bonus
Sportsbetting offers a big 50% free play bonus up to $1,000. A lot of bonuses out there don’t cater to the large bettor and are near meaningless. What does a $200 gift mean to you when you deposit $10,000 and bet $5,000 per game? With the Sportsbetting.ag bonus even whales feel like they have some extra bang for their buck. There are only a handful of sportsbooks on our bonus page that are up into the thousands in free-plays or cash.
Sportsbetting Bonus Terms - You’re not married, but it’s not a one night stand either
30 days. That’s the amount of time your money stays at Sportsbetting.ag if you take the bonus. It’s a non-factor for 80% of bettors. Most players set up their bankroll for part of a season and aren’t interested in taking it out and putting it back before hitting the profit they were targeting. But there are certainly some, especially bitcoin bettors, that want to bet over the course of the week or weekend. These players need to be aware of these terms. The books always tell us that these new-player bonuses are in place so the player will try them out and see if it is a good fit. That can’t happen if they placed one max bet and go to Maui. Players who want to grab a juicy line and then spend their winnings should decline this bonus. There is a good chance the book will allow you to redeem the bonus on a future deposit.
Along with the hold on funds, players should understand that there is a play-through requirement. In this case, a 15x rollover AKA play-through means if you take a 50% bonus on $100 you have to bet ABOUT $150 15 times. Why the capital letters in ABOUT? That’s because some books like Sportsbetting.ag use the lesser of the risk to win amount. If you bet $110 to win $100 on an NFL spread, you have $100 counting toward the rollover. If you don’t like that, you’re not alone but its the cost of free money in 2018 and something most book had to employ to defend against non-gamblers who only deposit to bet out the bonus funds. Most bettors never have to count the rollover because their deposit isn’t for only a single weekend of action.
No Reduced Juice
Sportsbetting MLB money lines are some of the cheapest up to -200. All other North American sports start at -110. However, if the player takes the bonus, it equates to some of the best deals per bet online. Even small bettors can make the investment in a huge bonus maximum effectively erasing the vig for an entire season. Sportsbetting also has opinionated lines, meaning line shoppers want to have this option regardless of the margin. Getting the best deal is the purpose of pursuing reduced juice. If my team is -2.5 -110 at Sportsbetting and -3 -105 at every other book, -2.5 is still the best option.
Unique Odds - Early Lines & First Movers
Many times Sportsbetting.ag will be the first to offer a line on an event and many times the line will first move at Sportsbetting. This means having an account at Sportsbetting gives bettors the opportunity to bet a line that is often not available elsewhere. For halftime, early lines, and betting right before tip and kick off, Sportsbetting or a sister book is a must.
Bitcoin… And The Other Coins
Sportsbetting accepts Bitcoin, ethereum, and litecoin. We are told by management that the book is always considering new Crypto Currencies. Sportsbetting.ag advertises Crypto withdrawals in under two hours, but we typically hear player report payment inside of 30 minutes.
As with most of the best books, we have to really reach for the negatives and complain about the way they give us their free money! The bonus isn’t for everyone because of the 30-day hold.
Sportsbetting is a top sportsbook, especially for large bettors. Sportsbetting is happy to take bets of $20 or $20,000. The book aims to offer something for everyone including two casinos, poker, esports, horses, financial markets and live betting. Whether betting big or small SportsBetting is a must in order to have a shot at the best line at any given time. The sportsbook signup bonus is one of the best currently offered when taking into consideration the bonus maximum limit.
