Why We Love Them

Anytime you have a new player in the online sportsbook market, you have to be cautious. There’s a lot of sites out there that look great on the surface that don’t live up to the hype.

It’s safe to say that SportsBettingOnline has passed the test. I have really enjoyed being a member at this book. Whether you are a new to the game or a veteran to the industry, this site has everything you could ask for.

My favorite thing about this site is their promotions, which I’ll go into more detail later. There 10% deposit bonus with no rollover requirements is one of the best in the business. Not to mention they give back 10% of your wagers each week. SBO also has competitive odds and easy deposit/withdrawal methods. It’s easy to see why this site has made such a name for itself in such a short period of time.

Depositing Money

The last thing you want with a new sportsbook is problems getting money into your account. That’s simply not an issue with This site offers numerous options for adding funds, all of which I’ve listed above. 

While most books only accept Visa and MasterCard, SBO also offers the option to use Discover. They also accept prepaid gift cards.

Don’t want to use a credit card? No worries. You can send money via Western Union, Money Gram, Bank Wire, LibertyX, Money Order or Bank Deposit. They also accept BitCoins.

Making Bets

Most of the top books have stepped up their game when it comes to the design and ease of using their site. is definitely on par with the big boys in this department.

Not sure where to find a certain play, you can use their search feature to find any game. Just search by city, team name or rotation number. 

Making a wager couldn’t be much easier. Once you are logged into your account. You will be taken to a page similar to what you see above. It really takes no time to find what you want to bet and get your wager placed.

While I’m more of a straight bet player, it’s super easy to place a wager on a parlay, teaser or any other exotic wager.

They also make it easy for you to see all your open bets and history of wagers to track your winnings.

Payout Methods

One of the most important things with any online sportsbook, is getting money out of your account. As you can see, offers a wide variety of payout methods.

If you aren’t impressed with the options that SBO has, take some time and see what other sites offer. Most other books don’t come anywhere close to SBO when it comes to withdrawing funds.

Most importantly is they have multiple options for free payouts. There are no fees for Google Wallet, prepaid cards from Visa/MaserCard or Bitcoins. I recommend using one of these three, as the fees on others are a bit pricey.

I touched on SportsBettingOnline’s great bonus and loyalty promotions. Don’t be turned off by the mere 10% bonus on your deposit. Sure, other books offer a 100% match, but require you to rollover that numerous times. A lot of times you end up never receiving the bonus.

SBO gives you 10% right away on every deposit. Not a single rollover required. It’s really one of the things that separates this site from the others. You also get 10% back on your wagers each week. Regardless if you win or lose. You do have to make a minimum of five bets, but that’s easy to hit. For every $1,000 you wager, that’s a free $100 in your account!

Mobile Betting

One of our favorite perks is their dedication to their mobile site. It’s just as user-friendly as their traditional site.  If you are the type of player that wants to be connected all of the time, Sports Betting Online is a perfect choice.

When you visit their site via your smartphone it really does feel like an app that was designed for the device.  Other books have similar mobile services, but SBO does it as well as (or better than) anyone else.
