They don’t have the brand name recognition of other online sportsbooks… but they really should.
SBG Global doesn’t have a huge reputation in the online sports betting world, which I find really surprising. They definitely don’t have the huge name, but at this point in time, I think they really should.
I’ve been betting sports online with these guys now for a bit over a year and I’ve gotta say I’m impressed. Solid lines, tons of sports, and some of the quickest payouts I’ve seen.
SBG Global sportsbook is often overlooked due to their understated marketing campaigns, but they’re really one of the top online sportsbooks out there. Read on to find out why.
Sportsbook Bonuses and Promos (8/10)
If you’re looking at the overall package of bonuses, SBG Global is in the top 4 best bonuses in the industry.
Initial Deposit: 30%
Gambler’s Insurance: 10% (casino only, on losses incurred between Monday to Friday)
Casino: 100% deposit bonus, 100% reload
Other: Various additional bonuses for Racebook and Poker
The best thing about SBG Global’s bonuses is that they don’t have any ridiculous free play or huge rollover requirements — just roll over 3x and you’re set. Sometimes, you gotta look at more than just the big bonus number a sportsbook dangles in front of you…
Customer Service (8/10)
Night or day, rain or shine, SBG customer service has always been there for me since I started betting there. I’ve dealt with them on numerous occasions for a variety of reasons and their quick and friendly customer service has sorted me out every time.
Sportsbook Features (8/10)
The ‘global’ in SBG Global isn’t just a name. Whatever sport you want to wager on, whether American or international, they’ve got you covered with a variety of bet types, including straight bets, parlays, teasers, if bets, reverses, round robins, and props.
Their odds and lines are solid (which is what got me betting with them more in the first place) and are posted pretty early. If you like to gamble a bit, their parlay payouts are pretty good as well.
In addition to sports, SBG Global also offers entertainment and other prop bets. They usually have a decent selection if that’s up your alley.
Additional Features (8/10)
In addition to the sportsbook, SBG also has a solid casino that they’ve been doing a lot of work to promote. I’m generally not a big casino player, but their 100% casino deposit bonus got me thinking what the heck.
When I hit Vegas, pretty much all I play is blackjack. SBG has a new live dealer feature with live chat. In Vegas, I don’t tend to chat up the dealers, but if they were as hot as some of the girls SBG has dealing these games I might do it more. LOL
I don’t tend to play the casino to much, but SBG’s live dealers are a nice occasional distraction.
SBG Global also a full Racebook offering horse betting odds on over 200 racetracks worldwide and a Poker room I’ve never used. Deposits for the Racebook and Poker room have their own bonuses (20% for the Racebook, and 100% for Poker).
When it comes to making deposits, all I care about is whether an online sportsbook can process my credit card. SBG Global’s credit card processing is right on par. I’ve never had a problem getting a deposit processed with these guys.
SBG also accepts bank wires and cash transfers if you don’t like using your credit card (and I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t).
Wow. Now this is where SBG Global has really been able to kick ass.
I’ve had some good experiences using their Moneygram option. Normally, I just get couriered checks when I’m collecting from any sportsbook, but a buddy of mine recently told me about this option. I happened to already have an account and had a couple of grand sitting in my SBG Global wagering account so I figured I’d try it out.
I requested a payout in the morning and they money was in my account before 6pm that same day! Incredible.
I’m still going to stick to getting couriered checks because I don’t really like having to deal with third party money accounts but it’s good to know that if I ever need my winnings in a hurry, SBG has me covered.
Regardless of if you’re a US sports betting fan or live somewhere else, I highly recommend SBG Global. Easy bonus options and solid payouts make them one of my go-to sportsbooks.
