Prior to the U.S. legislation regarding online gambling, Sportsbook.com was named the “Best U.S. Sportsbook” in both 2005 and 2006. Considering how many sportsbooks there were in America during that time, that is a pretty lofty accolade.
Since then, Sportsbook.com has continued to improve its reputation. With an expansive sportsbook, supplemented by a very good online casino and poker room, Sportsbook.com is the premier destination for all American sports betting.
Upon arrival at the website you find yourself immediately at the sportsbook, which is both aesthetically pleasing and extremely easy to navigate.
