Masters of innovation
For 10 years, BetOnline has been one of the premier places at which to place wagers on sport. Not only is it experienced, but it is also one of the most innovative betting companies found on the web.
In 2009, the company set out to place and accept the first bet from the summit of Mount Everest. Although they weren’t able to place a bet from the summit, they did manage to place a bet from “Base Camp 4”, some 26,000 feet above sea level. The bet itself was a winner!
The Everest bet sums up BetOnline in a nutshell; they push things to the limits and are always looking for new innovative ways to improve their clients’ overall betting experience.
There is nothing innovative with the homepage. It is there solely to serve a purpose by directing you to one of the four arms of BetOnline. With a click of the mouse, you can instantly be transported to the sportsbook, casino, poker room and the horses.
As you would expect with an American company, line betting is their forte. The layout of the sportsbook is nice and simple, exactly the way you want it to be. The open markets are found on the left-hand pane, and by clicking on one of these markets the respective betting events will appear in the centre bar. Simple!
With regards to American sports, they offer both collegiate and professional football and basketball, whilst also offering markets for baseball, martial arts, softball and lacrosse.
European based sports also feature. They have 26 different soccer leagues for customers to bet on, while they also have markets for sports such as cricket, rugby and golf.
On the sportsbook you can also gain access to the stats centre and sports schedules amongst other things.
BetOnline does not feature any European races, but there is more than enough action in America to satisfy. With over 20 courses on offer, you should be able to find a winner!
If you are uncertain about American horse betting there is a free horse pick option located directly above the racebook. Clicking on it will take you through to a tips section, which also offers free tips on other sports as well.
Directly next to the free horse picks is an option that takes you through to the racing general info. Here you can check the ground, distance, and jockeys.
It is a very complete casino that BetOnline offers. They have a variety of slots for you to play and all of the table games that you would expect to find in a casino, as well as the hugely popular live casino. All of these are very easy to find; this is due to the tile layout the site uses, making it harder to miss your game than it is to see it.
You can choose to download BetOnline’s poker room, but you can play without it. If you look to the right once you are on the poker section, you can see which tournaments are running throughout the day.
BetOnline also have a freeroll poker tournament. These run hourly and attract up to 3000 players all competing for the cash prize. The site also has different variants of poker to appease all types of player.
The poker section also gives you tips and hints as to how to better your game.
Deposits and withdrawals
Betonline accepts all major debit and credit cards, but they must be international cards; American cards will not work. PayPal and other online payment services also work.
With regards to withdrawals, for those outside North America, your funds will be in your bank account within three to five working days.
