SportBet was one of the first sportsbooks to offer online betting services dating all the way back to 1997. Licensed out of Costa Rica, it would have to be considered one of the better American sportsbooks on the Internet given its longevity and reputation for offering a wide-range of bonuses for new and existing customers. It is a sister company of Island Casinos and owned and operated by 5Dimes.
One of the biggest advantages of SportBet is the ability to conduct Book to Book transfers, account transfers, or person-to-person transfers when depositing, withdrawing, or transferring funds. They have an excellent customer support center that reacts in a timely fashion to all inquiries as well as offering a live chat service for any issues that may arise. There are no fees on any deposits and you are allowed one free withdraw a month.
SportBet offers a full range of wagers on most major sporting events including exotics such as If Bets, Reverses, Round Robins, Rolling If Bets, Teasers/Progressives, and Asian Handicaps. They also have a full complement of futures and prop bets for all major sports. The website includes sections for poker, card games, skill games, lottery, a casino, and a racebook.
Sports wagers can range from a one-dollar minimum to a maximum of $5000. They do reserve the right to reduce or exceed these limits at any time on any wager. The maximum payout on a parlay, teaser, If wager, or RIF chain is $250,000. An account can be set-up for unlimited parlay payouts on all selections, but must be approved in advance. One disadvantage to choosing this option is that the account will not be eligible for additional bonuses. A full set a wagering rules is available on their website.
SportBet offers a customer loyalty program that is one of the best in the industry. Upon setting up a new account you are enrolled in their No.1 bonus plan, a 30 percent Super Saver Reward. You can also opt for a cash-back or reduced juice rewards if they are more to your liking, by simply using their free live chat service of toll-free number to set up the plan that works best for you. They also offer a 50 percent New Player Bonus in which you can earn up to $520 in Free-Play Bonuses for use in their sportsbook only.
They also offer a 50 percent MatchPlay bonus for use in their MatchPlay Casino as well as an opportunity to qualify for 77 one dollar plays on some of the world’s largest Pick 3 and Pick 4 payouts. Overall, SportBet is one of the more reputable sportsbooks out there with close to 15 years of online experience to their credit. The only drawback to SportBet is because of their affiliation with Island Casino and 5Dimes, you can only have one account at these three books.
