BetOnline Review Notes

BetOnline is a recommended betting site because they have very few flaws and a ton of interesting offerings. Bettors trust BetOnline because their reputation of reliability and legitimacy is so strong. They offer lots of options both when it comes to betting and promotions, and strong customer support. Deposits and payouts are highly reliable and safe.

A good book for a large swath of customers, BetOnline's limits are large enough for some serious players, but also are excellent for those just getting their feet wet. The website is modern and straightforward. BetOnline has extras like a casino, poker room, racebook, and a dedicated esports section. With lots of contests, promotions, and bonuses, the site is a winner for the huge majority of players.

BetOnline Bonuses

Regardless of the section of BetOnline, you plan to frequent the most, they have a bonus catered to you. There are also several other perks, some specifically for those who deposit using certain methods, and many open to everyone. To make things easy to understand, these are the bonuses that are available at BetOnline:

  • Sign-Up Bonus: 50% up to $1,000
  • Reload Bonus: 25% up to $500
  • Refer-a-Friend Bonus: 100% up to $100

Sign-Up Bonus

If your goal is to maximize your bonus the best way to sign up at BetOnline is using their Crypto Bonus. If you have never made a deposit using cryptocurrency there is a 100% bonus to $1,000 with 14x rollover.

For all other deposits aside from Skrill and Neteller, there is a 50% bonus up to $1,000 available with 10x rollover. If you deposit $100, you get $50, and $150 x 10 = $1,500. You are able to withdraw your cash once you have bet at least $1,500. While the rollover grows exponentially, like most bonuses this perk gets maxed out when you deposit the maximum amount (a $2,000 deposit brings the full $1,000 bonus).

Reload Bonus

The standard sports reload bonus is 25% up to $500 with 6x rollover. If you are reloading using a cryptocurrency you qualify for a 35% bump up to $1,000 with 6x rollover. Both offers are solid incentives.

Refer-a-Friend Bonus

BetOnline makes it worth your while to have your friends sign up with them. There is a 100% bonus available up to $100 for referring friends who sign up with a minimum of $25. The rollover is 5x. If several people are all thinking about opening an account or looking to move sites, this is a great perk to add a few bucks to your account.

Alternative BetOnline Bonuses

If you are likely to sample a variety of sections of the BetOnline site, there may be offerings worth considering outside the sportsbook. Here are the best bonuses in the casino, racebook, and poker room:

  • Casino bonus: 100% up to $1,000 (redeemable up to 3x)
  • Racebook bonus: Up to 7% daily rebates
  • Poker bonus: 100% up to $1,000

For casino players, there are several interesting programs. Your first three casino deposits qualify for a 100% bonus up to $1,000 with 40x rollover. If you try your hand at American Blackjack, Caribbean Poker, European Roulette, Fruitbat Crazy, or Viking Voyage, your first bet up to $100 is on the house. The risk-free bet comes with a 40x rollover, but is a great way to get you started. The casino (excluding live games) also offers a 10% rebate on losses from Monday through Thursday. Additional perks include free spins and monthly prizes.

For customers that initially sign-up primarily for poker, there is a 100% bonus up to $1,000. You receive the free play in $10 increments based on accruing comp points, which is typical for poker bonuses. Essentially as you play, both the amount you are risking and how often you are playing add up and the more volume the faster you receive rewards. The poker section also offers freerolls for referring friends, and various tournaments that are exclusive to members who sign up for poker and/or qualify based on play.

Regardless of what section of the site you spend the most time at, you qualify for a free play in the racebook up to $25 excluding the Triple Crown and Breeders Cup. An even better racebook offer is the 7% rebate on losses from most bets.

Banking at BetOnline

BetOnline gives you a wide variety of ways to bank. Regardless of the method you choose, the system is simple and intuitive. You can get started for a minimum of $10, though to use a credit card the minimum deposit is $50. Payouts begin at $20, but if you want an old fashioned check you need to request at least a $500 withdrawal. There are fee-free payouts available, but not for any of the conventional methods. Across the board, processing times are pretty quick. Transactions are safe and dependable.

Deposit Options

BetOnline is second to none when it comes to various ways in which you can make your first deposit to start your account. From credit cards to a long list of cryptocurrencies, cash apps, money orders, wires, checks and more, however you prefer to deposit, they make it easy. Because there so many options depending upon your favorite method, deposits can start anywhere from $10 to $1,500, and there are some methods with no maximum deposit, though other selections can be capped at as low as $600. Here are all the details for deposits at BetOnline:

  • Minimum Deposit: $10
  • Deposit Methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, Ripple, Person-to-Person, Money Orders, Skrill, Neteller, bank wire, Cashiers Check, ecoPayz
  • Supported Currencies: USD, BTC, LiteCoin, Dash, Ripple, Ethereum

Between the best bonuses, low minimum deposits, high maximums, and fee-free payouts, there are ample incentives to deposit using cryptocurrency. BetOnline also gives pretty detailed directions on how to do so. That said, it does require signing up for an exchange, creating an account, and transferring funds. Not that any of the steps are difficult or overly time consuming, but it does take a small amount of doing.

There is really something for all types of players. All the deposit options at BetOnline are listed in the chart below.

Depositing Options Minimum Deposit Maximum Deposit
Cryptocurrencies $20 $50,000
Credit Card $50 $5,000
Person-to-Person $100 $600
Money Orders $300 $9,000
Skrill $10 No maximum
Neteller $10 No maximum
Bank Wire $1,000 No maximum
Cashiers Check $1,500 $15,000
ecoPayz $10 $10,000

Our preferred method of deposit is crypto, though we understand if you do not already trade in those circles it adds a few steps. Once you are signed up, it is easy to use and very fast. For those who are not interested in Bitcoins and their relatives, BetOnline also covers the fees on bank wires, but the minimum deposit is $1,000. Credit card transactions are probably the simplest way to get going, but the 7.5% fee stings a little.

Payout Options

In the same way that BetOnline sets the industry standard for options in which you can deposit, they offer a plethora of ways to get paid out too. It is nice to have choices because you can pick between lower fees, or faster processing times, or the smallest and largest payouts available. We have heard of few problems with payouts beyond people occasionally complaining about fees. That shouldn’t really be an issue since we list the processing times for each method and you can sign up for whatever method you feel most comfortable with.

  • Cryptocurrencies: Within 48 hours
  • Check: Within 7 business days
  • Money Order: Within 7 business days
  • Bank Wire: Within 15 business days
  • Person-to-Person: Within 5 business days
  • Neteller: Within 36 hours
  • Skrill: Within 36 hours
  • CredeCard: Within 4 business days

Getting paid by BetOnline is a formality, as it should be. You will receive your cash and it will come within the timetable that they outline. It is very much worthwhile to consult the payout chart below so that you are aware of the options when it comes time to cash out.

Payout Options Minimum Payout Maximum Payout
Cryptocurrencies $20 $10,000
Neteller $25 $9,900
Skrill $25 $9,900
Person-to-Person $50 $400
Money Orders $500 $9,000
Check $500 $9,000
Bank Wire $500 $24,900
CredeCard $200 $3,000


Sportsbook Features

BetOnline is good or great at almost everything that a sportsbook could provide, namely football and baseball betting. Their long-standing dime lines on baseball, up to -199, is the best offering at any online sportsbook. To put it plainly, every day you pay less juice for baseball and, considering it has an extremely long season, it can be highly lucrative.

They open up game odds quickly and offer favorable odds. The sportsbook is compartmentalized by main sports, player props, game props, futures, and other sports. They have straight bets, parlays, teasers, totals, moneyline, if bets, along with notable futures and props.

Baseball aside, BetOnline covers large spectrum events exceptionally well. They are generally one of the first sportsbooks to open daily/weekly futures and props. You can expect a huge assortment of lines from entertainment futures to player props. Though live betting options are somewhat limited, BetOnline has most American sports available for in-play bets.

BetOnline has been a fan-favorite for a long time, and for good reason. The sportsbook is safe, the odds are fair, and the lines are consistent. Overall they’re a good mix. They have betting lines for almost everything, so you’re bound to be satisfied with the options available. You can bet on a rugby match or wager on a political prop bet and everything in between. One downfall is the lack of fun bets, but that is an incredibly small consideration in the grand scheme of things.

BetOnline Site Experience

Thankfully, after being extremely outdated, BetOnline updated their site. There are still elements that could use some attention, but overall the changes were a welcome addition. When you start betting at BetOnline, here’s what you can expect:

  • Betting Interface: Slightly outdated
  • Mobile Betting: Yes
  • Betting App: None
  • Live Sports Betting: Yes
  • Live Stream: None

Entering into the sportsbook you’re met with a ton of detail. While initially, it is overwhelming, all the necessary information is immediately available and odds are available in American, decimal and fractional formats. Once you get accustomed to the layout, it’s straightforward and easy to use. BetOnline has clearly made the point of optimizing their content to be all-inclusive.

Mobile Betting

BetOnline has an entirely different mobile betting site you can find at While this isn’t an app, it has everything that you want from a sportsbook when you’re betting on the go. The interface is sleek and interactive. Moreover, it is organized in a comprehensive way so you can easily find the lines you’re looking for. You can use BetOnline’s mobile site to bet on sports, casino, poker, esports, or the racebook.

The mobile site also has live odds as events take place as well as a calendar for upcoming live betting options. If you’re new to betting on in-play action, BetOnline has a detailed but concise breakdown of rules for each sport in the live section. Unfortunately, they don’t have a live streaming option as of yet, but we hope to see one in the future.

Live Betting

The live betting at BetOnline is decent. The in-play feature hits all key points but is not the best in the industry. They have current games that are live and upcoming matches as well. What they lack is the range of sports. The sports offered are primarily limited to North American sports, with the exception of soccer which includes leagues across the globe.

Customer Service

If you’re looking for a sportsbook that makes customer service a top priority, you can find it in BetOnline. BetOnline serves its clientele 24/7 across the phone, live chat, and email. Customer reviews are overwhelmingly positive and we have only had good experiences with the betting site. To get answers to your betting questions, here’s how you can contact BetOnline:

  • Service Hours: 24/7
  • Phone: 1 (888) 426-3661
  • Live Chat: Yes
  • Email:
  • Languages: EN, ES

Contact BetOnline via the phone if you want prompt and reliable service. The customer reps were extremely helpful and worked quickly to answer inquiries.

The live chat personnel are attentive, not robotic, and very accommodating. Getting assistance online is an easy route and one that won’t take too much time. Emails responses are not as prompt as they could be, but each response is comprehensive and helpful.

BetOnline is highly active and relevant on Instagram and Twitter. You can find odds and personality on both platforms posted multiple times a day. With the constant activity, contacting BetOnline via Twitter or Instagram is a good option. We recommend giving them a follow to stay on top of the latest predictions, and for a few laughs too.
