When it comes to online sportsbooks there are so many out there that a newcomer might have a hard time choosing the right one. The good news is that dozens of them are very reputable. Many have been in business for over 10 years and on the net for over 4 years, with a solid payout history. Below are the best ways to choose an online sportsbook.
Of course a brand new company could be a great company, but why take the unnecessary risk when there are so many established sportsbooks out there? The company should be in business for at least three years. Four or more is even better.
Asking someone who’s wagered with a particular sportsbook is the best way to find out if they’re any good. Payout fees are basically the same across the board. How fast you get the money may vary.
The only way you can really find out how long it takes is to ask someone who’s previously wagered with them. Or make a small deposit, win, then request a payout.
Why not get as much free money as you can? If our tips #1 and #2 check out fine, the only other thing is to get a solid bonus. Personally, I wouldn’t send money to ANY SPORTSBOOK that isn’t giving me a bonus. There are WAY too many reputable sportsbooks that are giving out bonuses and it makes no sense not to get the extra money.
An initial deposit bonus is a must. If you lose your initial deposit, don’t re-up unless they give you another bonus. If they don’t, find another sportsbook (preferably one that will give you a re-up bonus). And last but not least is gambler’s insurance. Your sportsbook should give you some type of free wager if you lose with them. It’s just an extra bonus you should be getting.
Follow our three easy steps and you’ll get the most out of online sports wagering.
