Deposit & Payout Options
It’s hard to find an all in one gambling site. One that offers sports betting, casino, poker and bingo games. More and more we’re seeing operators specialize in one or two areas.
Those that exist are often average at best. They may offer a strong sports or casino product, but then fail in other areas, such as poker or bingo.
It’s becoming increasingly difficult to not only find an all in one gambling site, but one that offers an average to above average experience in each of their products.
But we think we found one – Sportsbetting.ag.
Each product delivers. Though, if we’re being honest, they’re not perfect. Each of their three products can be improved in some way.
But you can sign up specifically to play any one of them and be happy. Few all in one gambling sites can make the same claim.
However, they don’t have the best background. Our review will tell you about it. But we think that slate’s been wiped clean …and they’ve done a good job of keeping it that way.
So, if you’re looking for an all in one gambling site – and one that accepts players from all 50 states – we encourage you to read this review to the end.
Sportsbetting.ag offers a sportsbook, casino and poker room. They also have a financial betting section, as well as a few skill games (located in their casino). The one thing you won’t find is bingo.
The following sections take a deeper look into what each section offers, including what bets you can make, games you can play, and promotions you can participate in.
One thing we recommend is paying attention to their promotion terms. We mention some of them below, but you’ll also want to read them on their site. We’ve noticed many that state you cannot cash out winnings, for example, within 30 days of making your deposit.
Our guess is they do this to protect themselves from people hitting them for bonuses and running. But the point is you’ll want to watch out for terms like these to avoid any problems with your account or cashing out.
With that in mind, let’s jump into our reviews. We’ll start with their sportsbook.
Sports Betting at Sportsbetting.ag
Sportsbetting.ag breaks their markets up into two sections – Main Sports and Other Sports. Here are the markets listed under both.
We think Sportsbetting must change this list because we’re not seeing common markets such as the NHL or NCAA basketball. Both are staples at other bookmakers.
In fact, we’re confident that’s the case since it’s not quite NHL season yet. The 2016 season starts October 12th, and that’s about a month out from now. And they DO have NHL and NCAA futures.
(We point this out so you don’t dismiss Sportsbetting.ag merely because they don’t appear to cover the sports you’re interested in. You may have to dig OR contact their support to be sure.)
Other futures and props you can bet on include: formula 1, entertainment, golf, MLB props, NBA team wins and futures, NCAA basketball futures, NHL futures and the 2016 presidential election.
Sportsbetting.ag offers live betting, too. When we checked it out they had tons of baseball, a few World Cup hockey matches and soccer. You can either bet on matches individually or you can use their multi-event tab to bet on multiple events simultaneously.
The minimum bet across the board is $1. Their max limit varies. $500 is common, but we saw limits such as $5,000 for baseball totals, $10,000 for money line and $1,000 for team totals. You can bet $15,000 on various NFL bets and $25,000 on the Super Bowl spread. It just depends. You can see all their betting limits on their website.
They have a racebook too, where you can bet on races held at tracks such as Mohawk Raceway, Mountaineer Park, Northfield Park and Yonkers Raceway.
Bets can be placed from your computer, tablet or phone. Their site is compatible with the iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
Our Overall Opinion
Sportsbetting.ag offers an okay selection of markets, though it is heavily weighted towards North American sports and events. Between that and their betting limits, recreational bettors will be happiest here. But experts say that even pros can find profitable action.
You’ll find several offers at Sportsbetting.ag between their deposit bonuses, free bets and cash back. Here are their core offers:
75% Welcome Bonus – Sportsbetting.ag will give you a 75% match on your first deposit up to a max of $1,000. This is a free play bet with a 12x rollover. It cannot be used in any other area than the sportsbook (including the live sportsbook and racebook).
50% Kickoff Reload Bonus – They’re offering a 50% match reload bonus. This is good up to $1,000. This has a 10x rollover and cannot be used anywhere other than the sportsbook.
$25 Free Live Bet – Make your first live bet. If your first bet loses, Sportsbetting.ag will reimburse you up to $25. There’s a 6x rollover.
NHL Reduced Juice – They’re offering 10-cent NHL lines.
$50 Free Mobile Bet – This is similar to their live bet. Make your first mobile sports bet. If you lose your bet, you’ll receive a reimbursement up to $50. This has a 6x rollover.
MLB Dime Lines – They’re offering dime lines up to -194 – the entire MLB season, all the way through to the end of the World Series.
$25 Free Horse Bet – Make your first bet in their racebook. If your bet loses, Sportsbetting.ag will reimburse your loss up to $25. This is a free play bonus, and has a 6x rollover.
7% Horse Rebate – Make bets online and receive a 7% rebate. Make it over the phone and receive a 4% rebate. There’s no cap or minimum volume of bets you need to make.
Overall, this is a solid selection of sports betting offers. And they’re adding new offers, often coinciding with the start of a new sports season. So we recommend checking their site often or getting on their newsletter.
Sportsbetting.ag gets their software from BetSoft.
This means you get access to an instant play casino with more than 140 traditional casino games and variations.
Here’s what you can play:
The min and max limits vary, but it looks like the max across the board is $250 per hand.
Craps and Roulette
- American roulette
- European roulette
- Roulette single zero
They also offer a small selection of live dealer games. Though, from what we’ve seen and heard, these could look and function better.
These are easily our favorite machines. These are 3D slots that look and play like video games. Our favorite titles include Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (be sure to play until he changes into Hyde), Madder Scientist and Rockstar. But all of them are loads of fun.
They certainly do not have the biggest selection of slots. You can find more by going to any casino who offers a combination of Real Time Gaming and BetSoft software – such as Bovada or Ignition.
However, this selection will satisfy 90% of slots players. Only the most hardcore online slots enthusiasts will want a larger selection.
They have several video poker variations. You’ll find standard video poker games, then multi-hand or multi-line variations of each of those.
Here’s what you’ll find at Sportsbetting.ag:
- Five draw poker
It’s hard to go wrong with BetSoft’s games. They look great. They’re fun to play. Just watching them is fun (both you can do on BetSoft’s website).
We like how Sportsbetting.ag doesn’t force you to download their software, too. This probably has a lot to do with BetSoft since their games are built with HTML5.
This means most, if not all of their games are mobile responsive, too. This means they should work on computer monitors of all sizes, as well as on mobile devices from Apple, Android, BlackBerry and even Windows. You can see (and play) all their mobile “ToGo” games here.
Our biggest complaint is they don’t have the overall volume some casinos have. But that’s hardly something to complain about given the diverse selection of unique and entertaining games and variations they have.
We think casino players will be happy with Sportsbetting.ag’s casino.
Sportsbetting.ag has plenty of bonuses and offers for casino players. Here’s some info about their core promotions.
Slots Match Bonus – Receive a 100% match bonus on every deposit of $100 or more. The max bonus is $1,000. There’s a 50x rollover, which is pretty high for slots. You can use this multiple times – but only one at a time.
$25 Live Dealer Free Play – Make your first bet in their live dealer casino. If you lose, Sportsbetting.ag will reimburse you up to a max of $25.
25% Re-Up Bonus – You’ll receive a reload match bonus every time you make a deposit to the casino. This has a 50x rollover. You cannot use this bonus for: blackjack, roulette, craps, baccarat and mobile casino games. Any action on baccarat, roulette and craps will not count towards the rollover.
10% Rebates – If you play and lose more than $100 in a week, you’ll be eligible for a 10% rebate. This will be based on your losses. For example, if you lose $200 you’ll receive a $20 rebate. The maximum rebate you can receive is $1,000. There’s a 50x rollover and doesn’t include: blackjack, baccarat, craps, roulette, live and mobile casino games. You also need to complete the rollover for one rebate before you can get another.
High Stakes Bonus – All players who spend more than $75,000 in the casino qualify for their high roller bonus. The bonus ranges from $50 to $1,000, depending on how much you spend (between $75,000 and $1,000,000).
This is a nice selection of offers. However, a 50x rollover for slots is relatively high. It’d be nice to see Sportsbetting.ag offer some promotions to table game players, too.
Sportsbetting.ag’s poker section is probably their weakest product of their 3 core products. But only because of their traffic levels.
They’re on the Chico Poker Network (along with BetOnline). They’re 3rd in US traffic and 12th overall. Last we checked they had 2500+ players online with 700+ cash game players and 1,100+ tournament players. The rest are free money and/or freeroll players.
Their main poker games are holdem and omaha. For cash games, limits go up to 5/10 for holdem, though most action will be found at 1/2 and below. Omaha’s stakes peak at 2/4, though action anywhere here’s sparse.
Players report flop percentages often exceeding 25-30%. This means loose, action-oriented -and often soft- cash games. Even if you only have the basics down, like only playing strong hands, you can clean up here.
Sportsbetting.ag is pretty big into tournaments, too. We base this on all their tournament themed offers, leaderboards and overall MTT schedule.
- $20k MTT Leaderboard – Play MTT’s and earn points based on how you do. You’ll earn as much as $250 to $1,000 based on how many points you earn and your average buy-in.
- $5k Weekly SNG Challenge – Play SNGs and earn points based on how well you do. You’ll earn up to $1,000 depending on your average buy-in and where you finish. There are 60 winners every week.
- $100,000 GTD – Every weekend they run tournaments with a total prize pool worth at least $100,000. You can buy-in directly for less than $40 or 4,400 points. But they have them starting at $2. The last Sunday of every month they run a $50,000 GTD with a $90 buy-in.
- Hit & Run Freerolls – They run freerolls with real money prizes every day. These have prize pools up to $100.
- $20k Cash Race Challenge – Play in the Cash Race Challenge to win a piece of the $20,000 prize pool.
A few tournaments that offer value include the $1,000 guarantees with a $1 buy-in. This runs daily. They also have a $1,000 GTD for $3 and a $500 GTD for $0.50. Reports suggest overlays happen often, which makes these tournaments even more valuable.
We’ve also heard their software was upgraded in July 2016. It used to be old and clunky, but now it looks modern, works well and includes the basic features you’ll find at most online poker sites.
The software’s available by download only. There’s one for both PC and Mac. Unfortunately, there’s no mobile app. But since they’ve upgraded their software, we’re optimistic a poker app is near the top of their to-do list.
Even though we think their poker product is the weakest, it’s still strong overall. 3rd in traffic still means you’ll have little problem finding a game running. And there’s still plenty of value to be had, even if all you signed up for is their $1/$1,000 guarantee tournaments.
Upgrading their software is a huge plus, too, though we’d like to see a mobile app.
Most of Sportsbetting.ag’s poker promotions are their tournaments and leaderboards we covered in the last section. But here are the other two core promotions they have running right now.
100% Bonus – Get a 100% match bonus on deposits of $50 to $2,500. The bonus is released to you in $5 increments for every 1,500 comp points you earn. You’ll have 60 days to earn your bonus.
POP Points – For every .10 you pay in (contributed) rake at cash game or in tournament fees, you’ll receive 1 POP Point. You can use POP Points to enter freerolls or other real money tournaments.
They also have a ‘4 of a kind’ offer where you’ll earn $50 if you make quads (with a pocket pair) in a cash game at limits of .10/.25 or higher.
Other Betting Options
Sportsbetting.ag has a couple other gambling options. These are far less popular than the first 3 mentioned above.
You can play:
- Gin rummy
You can play skill games – like their casino and poker games – for both free and real money.
You can bet on what appears to be binary options. You’ll have the option to bet on currencies, indices (bund future, dow jones, MDAX, NASDAQ) and commodities (copper, crude, gold, silver).
Betting options or types include touch, range, turbo and one touch. These are common options for a binary options site.
We’re not overly impressed with this section, between the lack of promotions and betting options. It’s almost as if they’re not trying hard, which may be the case since we don’t see them advertise this section at all. However, if you’re interested in learning about binary options, or like to make the occasional financials bet, this will probably be enough for you.
You can use the following options to fund your account (min/max limits):
- Visa – $25/ $1000
- Bitcoin – $20 / $3500
- MasterCard – $25/ $1500
- Book to Book – $500 / No Max
- American Express – $25 / $2500
- Person to Person – $50 / $1000
- Discover – $25 / $1000
- Skrill – $10 / No Max
- Diners Club Intl. -$25 / $1000
- Check – $1500 / $24,900
- JCB – $25 / $1000
- Bank Wire – $1000 / No Max
- Money Order – $300 / $9000
You can use these options to cash out your winnings (with min/max/fees/time frame):
- Person to Person – $50 / $500 / $26 to $101 / 12 to 36 hours
- Bank Wire – $500 / $24,900 / $45 to $75 / 10 business days
- Check by Mail – $500 / $2500 / $25 / 30 business days
- Check by Courier – $500 / $2500 / $35 / 15 business days
- Check Express – $500 / $2500 / $50 / 7 business days
- Bitcoin – $20 / $5000 / 2% / 48 hours
- Skrill – $25 / $9990 / $20 / 36 hours
- Book to Book – $500 / $24,900 / Contact Support / 24 Hours
Fees for bitcoin transactions are ridiculous. Most sites – especially bitcoin-exclusive sites – don’t charge you ANY fees to use bitcoin.
That said, if the tradeoff is having bitcoin as an option, it’s worth it. It’s fast, worry free and legal …for now.
Some of the other fees – like $20 for Skrill or $75 for a bank wire – are a bit much, too. Especially since you’ll likely be hit with additional fees from Skrill or your bank (an additional 1-5% or $25-$50).
But it’s hard to complain about fees when players are being paid. And we haven’t heard of any current reports or seen any complaints to the contrary.
If you have any questions or issues while making your deposit / withdrawal, you can contact their customer support team using one of the following options:
- Email – email@example.com
- Live chat
- Phone: 1-888-843-9027
Any Problems or Complaints?
Sportsbetting.ag used to have problems paying their customers. However, that was before BetOnline acquired Sportsbetting.ag back in 2012 and paid all their ($1.5+ million in) debts.
Other than that, the biggest problems or past issues don’t come from Sportsbetting.ag, but their parent company, BetOnline.
Here are the things BetOnline has done in the past:
- Lied about what network they’re on.
- Lied about accepting US players.
- Made it known they have access to players’ passwords and login details.
We’ve also seen reports about BetOnline confiscating player funds, to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars for various reasons.
Overall, BetOnline doesn’t have the best history. You’ll find plenty of scam accusations or complaints with a little Google searching. You can also read our BetOnline review.
However, BetOnline has put in the work to make improvements in their customer service and payment processing departments. And it appears this has bled over to Sportsbetting.ag.
Whether or not you believe that is up to you. Or, whether you’ll make Sportsbetting.ag pay for BetOnline’s mistakes is also your choice.
But nowadays you won’t find much, if anything negative specifically about Sportsbetting.ag online. And anything you do find – like complaints or scam claims – are 3-5 years old. This is hardly relevant now considering how fast the industry moves and changes.
Sportsbetting.ag is a strong, all-in-one gambling site. While each of their main products – their sportsbook, casino and poker room – have room for improvement, you can sign up now as is and be plenty happy.
And we’ll repeat what we said in our intro – that’s not something you can say about most all-in-one gambling sites today, let alone offshore sites who accept US customers – from all 50 states.
For those reasons we recommend you join Sportsbetting.ag today.
