Below is our Sportsbetting.ag online gambling website review, including our experience with sports markets on the Sportsbetting site, the history and the pros and cons of using the Sportsbetting website for your betting needs.
This Sportsbetting review is updated through different versions of the site.
Who are Sportsbetting.ag?
SportsBetting.ag began taking online bets back in 1999. It is estimated that over 1 million people have created accounts since then.
The SportsBetting brand is ranked one of the top online sportsbooks for use in the U.S, however they didn’t always have such a great rep. Up until 2012, there were a number of reports of them not paying out customers and trying to scrape players on rollover bonuses.
That seems to have been taken care of since BetOnline took ownership of Sportsbetting.ag. After buying SportsBetting.ag, BetOnline execs discovered that $1.5m plus in payouts were owed to SportsBetting.ag’s customers.
Since the aquistion, BetOnline has been committed to rectifying the situation with customers and returning what was owed. Under BetOnline, SportsBetting.ag has really improved, which has resulted in a huge decrease in complaints from clients.
It’s difficult these days to find a site that offers sports betting, casino, poker and bingo games in an all in one package and those that do exist are pretty average, with a “good-enough” attitude across their products. Sportsbetting.ag excel in all areas, and that’s what make them different.
But they are of course not perfect, and each of the Sportsbook, Racing and Casino offerings can be improved.
If you’re looking for an all-in-one gambling site that accepts players from all 50 states, we recommend these guys.
Sportsbetting really is a one-stop-shop for gamblers offering a sportsbook, casino and poker room.
They also have a financial betting section (if you like riding the markets), and a few games of skill (within their casino).
One thing we recommend is paying some attention to their promotion terms and conditions. All fine print SHOULD be read, but really how many of us roll like that?… We noticed many that declare you cannot cash out winnings within a certain period of time, some within 30 days of making a deposit.
The may do this to protect themselves from customers hitting them for free bets and running. But read the T&C’s ladies and gentelman to avoid confusion later.
The markets are broken into two different sections – “Main Sport”s and “Other Sports”.
They should really change this because we’re not seeing markets such as the NHL or NCAA basketball in main sports, which they obviously are for any bettor.
Other futures and props markets available include F1, entertainment, golf, MLB props, NBA team wins and NBA futures, NCAA futures, NHL futures and elections.
Live betting is also available for those of us that like an adrenaline rush. You can bet on individual matches or use their multi-event tab to bet on multiple events at the same time.
The minimum bet through all markets on Sportsbetting.ag is $1 (nice). Their max limit varies however. $500 is a common limit among exotic markets/events, with limits such as $5,000 for baseball totals, $10,000 for money lines and $1,000 for team total points. $15,000 on some NFL bets and $25,000 on big events such as Super Bowl. spreads. Further betting limit information is available on their website.
There is also a Racebook, where you can bet on races held at tracks such throughout the U.S
Bets can be placed from your computer, tablet or phone. Their site is compatible with the iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

MLB Dime Lines – Dime lines up to -194 during the MLB season, all the way through to the end of the World Series.
