Review By TJ Gill

BetOnline, formerly known as BestLineSports, is one of the more popular US-facing sportsbooks in operation today. Founded in 2001, the company has grown in leaps and bounds and has become one of the most reliable books in the industry. They are currently licensed in Panama City, Panama, and offer bettors alternative gambling options such as online poker and a full service casino.

Their website, BetOnline.ag, offers a plethora of options for its customers, including live in-play betting and a fully-functional mobile platform for those looking to wager from their favorite smartphone or tablet. The management here really looks out for its players, and its clear that its staff and competitive lines cater to both novice bettors and high rollers alike. In fact, new players are eligible for a 25% instant bonus up to $1,000 on their first deposit, along with lifetime reload bonuses that are available for as long as your account is active with BetOnline.

You can easily access your account straight from your browser, as well as any major smartphone. In a lot of cases, the sports lines are BOL are available faster than most of their competitors, giving you an early edge on your bets. The company has also worked tirelessly to improve their customer service vastly and have also ramped up withdrawal times so you’re able to access your winnings as soon as possible.

Why we hate em

  • cons Moderately high 10x rollover requirement on your 1st deposit.
  • cons No added value for parlays and teaser bets.
  • cons BOL shies away from pro bettors; balances can be confiscated.

Right now, new customers to BetOnline will be able to take advantage of a few different bonus types, including a LIFETIME reload bonus and other free bet options. Personally, this site is leading the way in regards to how they structure their bonuses and how they market their new and existing promotions. Check out the details below:

Standard 25% Welcome Bonus – New players will be able to get an added 25% bonus (up to $1,000) added to their account instantly once a first deposit has been made. The minimum deposit to get this bonus is at least $50 and you must use promo code “FIRST” to ensure it is credited properly.

25% Lifetime Bonus – This option is one of the more surprising in the sportsbook biz, as it truly is a LIFETIME RELOAD that can actually be utilized for the life of your account. Simply input promo code “LIFEBONUS” on any deposit after your 1st deposit and BetOnline will make sure you up to $1,000 per reload you make.

Live Betting and Mobile FREE BETS – Score a $25 FREE PLAY bet when you make your first live betting wager on the site. Essentially, if you bet $25 (of your own money) and win then that money is yours to keep free and clear; however, if you lose that bet, simply email support and they’ll credit your account back immediately for the loss of the bet, up to $25.

For mobile users, you can take advantage of their amazing mobile software to make a free $50 bet straight from your smartphone. If your $50 bet is a loss, you just have to email support with the subject line reading “$50 Mobile Free Play” and you’ll have that amount instantly credited back to your account – no questions asked.

As mentioned in the introduction, BetOnline is one of the industry leaders when it comes to the sports markets they cover and the lines that they offer their customers. Being that they accept players from all over the world and most of the United States, the company of course caters to sports from all sides of the betting spectrum.

BetOnline.ag offers competitive lines for all major sports leagues, including all the popular North American leagues such as the NFL, MLB, NHL and NBA. Altogether, there are 17 different sports markets that the site offers, with some of those sports of course having added international options available as well.

Popular USA Betting Markets

These include baseball (MLB), football (NFL and NCAA), basketball (NBA, NCAA and WNBA) and hockey (NHL and NCAA). Other popular sports that often bring in a lot of action are soccer, tennis and golf. Bettors will normally find generous lines that are on par or better than most other major online sportsbooks.

Popular International Betting Markets

These also include the “Big 4” as mentioned above (NFL, NBA, NHL and NBA), as well as lines for Euro leagues in the same sports as well. Other sports like international soccer (Champions League, EPL, etc), cricket, rugby and snooker are also available to punters across Europe and abroad.

Quick List of Sports Offered

  • Basketball
  • Football
  • Hockey
  • Soccer
  • Tennis
  • Boxing
  • Cricket
  • Darts
  • Golf
  • Lacrosse
  • Olympics
  • Rugby
  • Snooker
  • Softball

 

BetOnline.ag offers every imaginable type of betting option for its users, including spread bets, moneyline wagers, totals (‘over/under’), props and futures. One of the more under-appreciated things that BetOnline does is how early they post their lines for games, sometimes a full week in advance for NFL matchups. Besides sites like 5Dimes and Bovada, their lines are normally the first to show up across the board online, which is very beneficial for serious bettors looking to lock up action on early lines (before they change closer to game day).

Odds and Lines

I like this book personally because they truly are geared towards the recreational betting public and not so much the high stakes sports gambler. The site offers great “dime lines” during MLB season and they even give you a chance to score an extra half-point for certain sports, which can come in handy when betting trendy underdogs.

Lines are available quicker than a lot of other books, with NFL games sometimes showing up almost immediately after Monday Night Football. Sometimes those early lines are ripe for the taking and can allow for some solid bets to be put in before the lines shift a bit more dramatically as next week’s game get nearer.

There are overnight lines available for most major sporting leagues, along with other popular betting options like international soccer or cricket. However, when it comes to odds on spread bets, parlays and teasers, BetOnline isn’t offering anything much different than other popular sportsbooks such as Bovada or Bet365.

Bet Limits

As with most books nowadays, BetOnline caters to all types of bankrolls, whether it be from a beginner just looking to make a few small plays to high rollers who move from book to book looking to make big plays. This is what makes this site so appealing, as it seems to not shy away from giving action where action is due.

Currently, you can make wagers as low as $1 at BOL to as high as $25,000. However, large 5-figure wagers like those are normally reserved for NFL and NCAA football season, and only for certain side, over/under’s and spreads. Other online bookies usually allow for bigger action, but BOL tends to favor its recreational bettors and caps larger punters’ bets.

For other sports, like the NBA for example, cap their bets at $5,000 to $10,000 – depending on which bet you’re taking. All NHL bets are capped at $3,000 and most college sports are limited to $1,000 to $3,000 betting limits as well. Prop bets are abundantly available year-round, but they too are normally capped at $500.

There are a wide variety of methods players can use to fund their accounts for the first time, even for American players on the site. We’ll go over the more popular deposit and withdrawal methods below, including which ones are the most recommended by our staff.
