Notes from the Editor

New players begin life in professional sports all the time. Young guys from big colleges like Amari Cooper or Ameer Abdullah fans might have a decent read on because they have seen them before. When Jerry Rice shows up from Mississippi Valley State and becomes the greatest receiver of all time, or Walter Payton departs Jackson State and embarks on a Hall of Fame career, it is a lot more difficult to predict. is so new it is hard to explain exactly what you’re going to get. That said, if we take the early season as an indication, they might just be a breakout star in sportsbook wagering.

BetNow bonuses

  • Signup bonus: 50% up to $1000.
  • Bitcoin bonus: 100% up to $1,000 initial bonus on all BTC deposits.
  • Reload bonus: 50% free play.
  • Refer-a-friend: 50% of friend’s deposit up to $250.
  • Casino: 50% on first 3 deposits, up to $1000 bonus x3.

Often times a newbie has to break the bank with offers to attract new customers. At this point, BetNow has resisted that. They offer a very competitive 50% bonus with a generous maximum deposit of $2,000 with 8x rollover. If you deposit $2,000, you’ll have $3,000 to play with. It is important to read the fine print on this offer. You have to make at least 16 wagers of $10 or more per month to keep your account active, and without an active account, you forfeit the bonus. They also offer a standard 50% referral bonus. While promotions may come and go, we’ve yet to see anything exciting beyond deposit or re-deposit bonuses.


  • Minimum deposit: $50
  • Payment options: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Debit Card, Moneygram, Western Union
  • Supported currencies: USD, BTC


Not only does BetNow offer Visa and MasterCard deposits, but they accept American Express too. You can also start your account using Western Union or Money Gram. The process to quick and to the point and you can be up and playing quickly.


The only fee free method of payout is direct deposit and there are a few states where that is not allowed. Bank wires, Western Union, and Money Gram are all available though be careful, because some not only cost a fee, but take out a small percentage of your withdrawal too. Payouts within a week are expected.

Customer service

  • Service hours: 24/7
  • Contact number: 1-844-823-8669
  • Live chat: Yes
  • Languages: English

BetNow’s tag line is “we make it simple” and that seems to basically be the case. You have to sign up for an account to get all of the details on payouts, deposits, and rules, but when it comes to customer service, whether it be on the phone, or through chat, they are able to answer questions and help out in a reasonable amount of time. An email for customer support was not answered on the same business day in which it was sent.

Sportsbook features

  • Live betting: Yes
  • Additional features: They have a racebook with $1 minimum plays and a 5% rebate. If you like to dabble at the track it is a fine place to bet, but limiting Pick 5 payouts to 2,000-1 and Pick 6’s to 3,000-1 is going to make serious bettors find somewhere else to go. The casino offers a decent selection of live dealer games, plus slots, table games, video poker and keno. It is a good spot to have fun with a 10% rebate offered.

Betting options are pretty typical and there is no knocking a solid selection of sports to play. Their emphasis seems to be on football at this point with team and individual props available They also offer some neat baseball one-on-one props where you can bet on which guy will have more total bases in an individual game. On standard bets the vig is industry standard -110, but props they are taking -115, which is really not necessary for a new book looking to attract customers. They are offering 7/2 on American Pharoah to win the Breeders Cup Classic which is a pretty good value.


Website UI and UX

  • Ease of use for betting: Nothing special but pretty easy to understand.
  • Mobile betting: Mobile site is optimized very well but still a little more difficult than other sites.

UI is simple and straightforward to use. Mobile optimized site, still slightly difficult to use but users should have no issues getting the hang of it.
