THE GOOD

Excellent website, beautiful and advanced live betting product, live streaming of games. Publically traded company, so you’ll never worry about trust or the security of your money. Seamless withdrawals and deposits.

THE BAD

No low juice; do not take American customers.

THE VERDICT

A sportsbook where you can bet all the major events live…a sportsbook where you can login and stream-watch the events right from your account…a sportsbook with a great track record of trust and security…are we dreaming? There’s no need for a pinch as Bet365 does all of those and more. It feels like a sales pitch but really, aside from the lack of low juice, there’s no knocking this book. Try it and you’ll see: they are among the premier spots to bet and with they are undoubtedly the trailblazers from a tech perspective. This isn’t a sales pitch; it’s a genuine complement for a job well done.

THE GOOD

The lowest juice sportsbook on the internet; sharpest lines and often the earliest; excellent customer service; sportsbook works like a well-oiled machine

THE BAD

No phone service; parlay options can be limited; betting variety limited mostly to major sports

THE VERDICT

For the best betting lines, Pinnacle is literally the pinnacle. While there’s no phone service to call in bets, the sportsbook works as a well-oiled machine answering e-mails rapidly and processing payouts without flaw. If you’re looking for huge bonuses and wacky reality show props, you’ll have to look elsewhere.

THE GOOD

Excellent customer service and excellent reliability; they aren’t going to disappear in the middle of the night; quick website; bonuses above industry standard

THE BAD

Very limited variety for betting lines; low limits for new customers (but can be negotiated)

THE VERDICT

Legends may not have all of the bells and whistles of a Bodog, but overall, they provide a secure, trustworthy platform where you can get your action in on the major sporting events. There might be areas where they are not the industry leaders (variety, lack of live betting), but their customer service definitely competes with the best of them.

THE GOOD

Wagerweb is a quality sportsbook for all types of players, huge deposit bonus, excellent content section (Lounge), outstanding loyalty program

THE BAD

Minor quirks with the website; the usual limitations of a recreational sportsbook

THE VERDICT

As sportsbooks dash out of the United States market like O.J. Simpson at a crime scene, WagerWeb soldiers on as one of the better recreational books. With a good content section, a commendable loyalty program and a solid payout history, WagerWeb can definitely be recommended.

THE GOOD

Good reputation, good payouts; trustworthy book; bigger-than-average sign-up and re-up bonuses; home-page is sleek

THE BAD

Betting engine is old school; customer service isn’t around 24/7/365; content on JustBet Insider is not kept up-to-date

THE VERDICT

JustBet is another sportsbook that’s right in the thick of the pack and while they don’t have a ton of features that make them standout, a better-than-average bonus plan, a sharp-looking home page and very good customer service are the reasons why you should deposit at JustBet.

THE GOOD

BetOnline is an overrated sportsbook with a decent deposit bonus to drag you in. However, there have been some complaints about poker payouts record and concerns with ownership. They still have a solid content resource on their website and customer service is decent.

THE BAD

Live chat reps leave much to be desired

THE VERDICT

BetOnline is often advertised as one of the the leaders but they still lag behind Bovada in terms of website, Bet365 in terms of Live Betting and BetDSI in terms of payouts.

THE GOOD

Great reputation; loyalty program; solid customer service; they are a known brand with a quality background. You know you’re getting good service simply based on the name.

THE BAD

Login times are a hair slower than most other sportsbooks; had to dig to find the sports articles section.

THE VERDICT

Diamond Sportsbook International is part of one of the most reputable brand names in the sports betting industry (BetCris). When it comes to overall reputation, that crew is tough to beat. Trust parlayed with good customer service is why this book has gathered a strong name throughout this generation.
