THE GOOD

Considerable deposit bonus, dedicated site for mobile betting, great content section, sexy-looking home page

THE BAD

Have had a few complaints about payments arriving past expected dates; clunky, old school betting engine

THE VERDICT

BetPhoenix is a middle-of-the-pack book. It’s not going to wow you in many ways but they do have a bigger-than-average deposit bonus, a good selection of betting lines and they’ll definitely cover your day-to-day needs. As long as you’re not concerned about the risk of a payment coming a bit longer than they projected, than it’s a place where you can deposit and have a good time.

THE GOOD

Big deposit bonus; will take U.S. players; website is low on graphics, so everything loads quickly; high betting limits for NFL

THE BAD

Consistent payout problems; low juice lines that were previously offered appear to be gone now; average-looking website

THE VERDICT

There are payout problems here – what else do you really need to know? With so many options out there, you’d be foolish to invest here. It’s a sportsbook that used to have a great reputation and hopefully one day they can get back to that level. For now, they’ve dropped-off significantly.

THE GOOD

Big bonus, clean website; fees on deposits over $300 are covered

THE BAD

They’re having extreme delays paying out, which might be code for not paying out.

THE VERDICT

Payout problems are as big of a red flag as they come. It’s like a chic telling you up front she’s got an STD: sure, you can play with her but you are playing with fire. With so many other good options out there, why take the chance?

THE GOOD

Among the lowest juice you’ll find; steady payouts with no problems

THE BAD

Can’t always bet what/how much you want; no deposit bonus, but still a two-time rollover; limited bet selection; no parlays, teasers etc. as only straight bets are offered.

THE VERDICT

Matchbook is a good idea but that falls short. Because you’re betting against other players opposed to the house, you’ve always got to find someone to take the action on the other side and that simply isn’t always the case. If it was more popular, it would be great but as it stands now, it really likes the opportunities, variety and limits that any normal sportsbook offers.

THE GOOD

Fast, reliable payouts; sleek website; good variety with quality live betting; loyalty program rewards bettors with exciting rewards.

THE BAD

Not as many sports betting options or casino games as Bet365; contacting them is more difficult as well since they don’t have live chat or phone numbers for North Americans

THE VERDICT

Bwin is a book that should be added to the repertoire. It’s a good first option as they offer quite a bit of everything but if you’re also looking for a book to use as a secondary choice for shopping around, they’ll definitely suit you. Since they are a publicly traded company and are affiliated with many sports leagues and teams, you’d be hard-pressed to find a sportsbook where your money is more secure.

THE GOOD

Excellent mobile betting site; the best golf props on the internet and good sports props overall. Game Chat is a nice touch; good customer service.

THE BAD

Reload bonus needs to be negotiated

THE VERDICT

SportsInteraction is a well-rounded book that offers a good experience. With a good website, an even more impressive mobile website and good live betting, you’re bound to have a good time.

THE GOOD

Premier brand since 1934; publicly traded company, so security and trust are nothing you’ll ever worry about; endless variety of bets (and betting); fantastic customer service

THE BAD

No low juice, deposit bonuses unclear, our users had a hard time finding call-in numbers and live-chat; contacting the sportsbook was not a pleasant process; website appearance a bit cluttered

THE VERDICT

It’s hard to knock this shop whatsoever as they are truly one of the best. Low juice would be the cherry on top and more obvious ways to connect with them, but even without that, they have an excellent website, good service and slew of betting options – including a good live betting product – to keep even the biggest A.D.D. gamblers satisfied.
