Notes from the Editor

WARNING: Once a rising star sportsbook, has become plagued by payment issues as of late. At this point, we can no longer recommend them as a safe sportsbook.

TopBet bonuses

  • Sign up bonus: 100% up to $1000
  • Reload bonus: 10% Free Play
  • Refer-a-friend: 25% up to $250
  • Casino: $5 Free Play
  • Loyalty program: 10% rebate on weekly casino losses.

They’ve got one of the nicest initial deposit bonuses around right now as well as some unique special offers in the mix.

In addition, their first bet guarantee is an exclusive promo for MTS readers. Go big and make whatever spread or total wager for your first bet after joining and they will refund you if you lose in the form of a free play credit – up to $100. And this is on top of your regular deposit bonus. Just enter Promo Code: MTSREFUND when you sign up at Topbet. The MNF $10 free bet isn’t a bad touch either — all you need to do is pick the player you think will get the first 1st down in the MNF game. Always worth a wager.


  • Minimum deposit: $50
  • Payment options: Visa, Mastercard, Bitcoin, Check, Bank Transfer
  • Supported currencies: USD, BTC


It can’t be said for all sportsbooks, but we haven’t come across any reports of a single problem funding an account with TopBet. No server issues, no delayed credit card processing issues, nothing. And if I need to fund my account half an hour before kickoff, this is all I care about.

If you don’t want to deposit by credit card (Visa and Mastercard), you can also transfer your money into your account. It’s not as quick as using plastic, but it’s there if you need (or prefer) it.


While deposit options remain acceptable, has fallen behind when it comes to paying bettors in a timely fashion.

This is unfortunate to see, but their payout track record is one of the key details we monitor when accessing whether a sportsbooks is safe or not.  When a sportsbook is unable to pay customers their winnings, we advise players to stay away.

Customer service

  • Service hours: 24/7
  • Contact number: 1-877-528-6748
  • Live chat: No
  • Languages: English & Spanish

This is one of the areas in which TopBet has really made huge strides in quality. After some initial growing pains (and short staffing) in their early days, they’ve come a long way and now have what I’ve found to be the most attentive and available customer service. While live chat is not offered, phone support has been a top-notch experience and non-urgent email inquiries are still responded to in a friendly and timely manner.

Sportsbook features

  • Live betting: Yes
  • Additional features: Like most sportsbooks, you don’t just get sports with TopBet. They’ve also got a casino going with your usual selection of table games. There are some decent freeroll and small buy-in tournaments (blackjack in particular) you can get into. Otherwise, there aren’t a lot of other options for you to win money. TopBet doesn’t have a poker room or racebook so card players and OTB bettors should look elsewhere.

TopBet is geared straight at the US sports betting fan, and this is highly reflected in their sports selection. If you’re looking for a big focus on international sports like cricket and the like, make sure you’ve got an account at another book.

You get all the bet types you need with straight bets, parlays, teasers, if bets, reverses, round robins, props, and more.

They’ve got solid odds and lines and, if you like betting parlays and teasers, you’ll get a kick out of their Friday Night parlay and teaser special.

Website UI and UX

  • Ease of use for betting: Excellent UI, very slick and functional
  • Mobile betting: Mobile version manages to be even better than on desktop. No iOS/Android apps.

One of the slickest and most user-friendly interfaces around. As a day-in-day-out sportsbook, TopBet also has an excellent mobile product. It looks good, moves quickly, and it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out how to use it. That said, there is nowhere close to enough live wagering available. It is 2018, and the industry is evolving. What TopBet does, they do well, but their offerings as a game is being played are very limited. The casino runs smoothly though not spectacularly on your phone, there are no significant problems, but the graphics can be inconsistent depending upon your connection strength. Their excellent selection of props and futures are easily accessible on your mobile device.
