BetOnline Poker Review
BetOnline ACCEPTS PLAYERS FROM ALL STATES (and most countries, too)
BetOnline is a Panama-based online bookie that was established in 1991 and has been on the web since 2001, so they are one of the longest around. It doesn’t always follow that a firm is A1 just because it has been in business a long time. So is BetOnline safe for Americans to join and do they offer a good service? Read away for our full Flushdraw review!
We’ll get straight down to it: This sportsbook and critically acclaimed poker site accepts USA players from all states and their solid reputation in America does make them a trusted betting site to join. The ONE exception is the state of New Jersey, where there are all forms of legalized gambling so BetOnline decided to pull their presence there several years ago.
They provide a diverse number of gambling markets and opportunities, as well as statistics and tipster information that you don’t tend to find at many other sites. Add to that a rather attractive selection of welcome bonus offers and reloads, well you’ve got a formula for success. This place is loaded with a great user interface and amazing lines that have enticed customers to play there for decades now.
BetOnline.ag Bonuses and Promotions: Up to $1000
BetOnline Sportsbook has some very attractive bonus offers. They are designed not only to help you start playing at the site, but also to keep playing:
On your first deposit you get a 50% bonus up to $1000, so long as you enter promo code BOL1000. 10 x rollover requirement. Fairly hefty $55 deposit minimum.
On all subsequent reloads (ie: redeposits) you get the same 25% bonus up to $250 extra but you will need to use promo code LIFEBONUS. This one requires you to wager six times the amount to unlock the full deposit bonus amount.
CRYPTO DEPOSITS at BetOnline!
100% cryptocurrency welcome bonus up to $1000, using code CRYPTO100 with a 14 x rollover requirement. Minimum deposit equivalent of $20 applies and you can deposit using any of these currencies: Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Litecoin, Stellar or Ripple.
Crypto reloads of $20+ are rewarded with a 35% bonus, if you want to take up the offer using bonus code CRYPTO35. This is up to $350 extra (which would be gained on a $1k deposit). Rollover is 8x the deposit amount!
Be sure to keep an eye on those T&Cs to check the latest minimum deposit and rollover requirements. Please bear in mind that the bonuses are not automatic, meaning you have to enter the appropriate code to get your bonus. So you do not have to take any form of bonus if you don’t want to. Despite the little niggle of the rollover, these are attractive bonus offers and a definite plus in our book.
The racebook has its own bonus of sorts in the form of a 7% rebate on all bets placed online and 4% on telephone bets, with no limit on the amount you can get back and no minimum bet total amount either.
Other promos are also offered, depending on what’s going on in the sporting calendar. For example, those who enjoy their Over bets on soccer games will be pleased to know there’s a Nil-Nil Refund promo, giving you your bet back for no-goal games. Keep an eye on the promotions page for details of the frequent special offers available at BetOnline.
BetOnline User Experience and Interface
The sportsbook software is powered by successful developer Digital Gaming Solutions, who are also the driving force behind a number of other online operators. The ease of use and easily navigable BetOnline site is testament to the good design, with sports all listed down the left side of the homepage.
From there it’s easy to see which sports have opportunities on which you can bet, and which don’t, as the active ones are bold and the inactive ones are shaded – a handy at-a-glance feature. You can select and view multiple wagering opportunities across several events by checking the appropriate boxes – another handy little feature that means you can avoid having to go back through all the sports again to place your bets.
All options are assigned rotation numbers for ease of reference and you’ll find a huge variety of different propositions to choose from, in addition to the usual futures and straight, or outright, gambling options. Hidden amongst the list of events down the left side of the page you’ll also find the Live Betting option, which could have been placed a little better.
Clicking on this will give you access to your in-play options and opportunities, as indicated by each event’s flashing green light. Selecting a plus symbol next to each event will reveal more markets to wager on plus specials. If you are not a fan of the American prices format, you can choose decimal or fraction odds instead.
There is the option to download a desktop bookmark, for both Windows and Mac OS, giving you instant access to the sportsbook site.
The people behind BetOnline have really revamped the mobile site and its probably the best thing about the website if you’re always on your smartphone like me! You can check out just how clean the mobile site looks like with the screenshot to the right of this paragraph.
Every Sporting Event Known to MAN!
You’ll be pleased to know that there’s a pretty good selection of events for you to bet on, ranging from NHL, NFL, soccer, tennis, football, baseball and basketball, to less familiar sports such as mixed martial arts, softball and many others. In addition to sports, there’s also entertainment and political markets you can stake your money on, such as if the latest box office release will be a hit and the outcome of the next presidential election. You’ll find these non-sporting events, as well as other specials, under the Futures and Props option on the BetOnline sportsbook homepage.
If you’ve been scratching your head trying to find the horse racing option down the left hand side of the sportsbook homepage at BetOnline, you can give it up, since this sport has a spot of its own on the navigation bar along the top. The Horses page lists all courses in alphabetical order, with upcoming races and runners at each course viewable with just one click. If you’re new to a bet on the horses, there’s plenty of helpful information on what to look for to give you an edge on your choices. The free horse picks will give you an idea of how the tipsters do it and which horses they come up with for upcoming races. There is a huge amount of information about horseracing in this section of the website. You can also enjoy some close horse matchups every day to spice up the action.
And There’s More…
If you’re a stickler for the statistics then you’ll love the Stats Center, which charts details of everything you could ever want to know about select sporting events, such as baseball, basketball, football, Nascar, F1 and others. You’re absolutely spoiled for choice with detail like results on previous related events, schedule, injuries, game logs, team reports and tons more! It’s heaven for the enthusiast and a definite bookmark-worthy page for those who want to analyze every possible variable before placing a bet.
Another feature of the Bet Online website that we think is awesome is the Sports Betting Edge page. Here you’ll find information, tips and analysis on a variety of sporting events, all of which are listed down the left side of the page and cover all the major sport types. It’s a fantastic place to keep up to date with the latest happenings in a particular field.

So the cheapest and easiest way to withdraw is using one of the above mentioned crypto options.
In addition to a pretty comprehensive help section on the site, Bet Online also provide quality customer service via phone, email and live chat on a 24/7/365 basis.
Flushdraw’s Personal Opinion
