Website design and features

BetOnline is designed for the US market, with a simple clean design and few images, which contrasts a lot to the European style bookmakers/sportsbooks. However this is what suits the American bettors and the sportsbook seems to do well! The default odds are also American style, but can be change to decimal or fractional at any time.

The sports lines are a little lacking at BetOnline, with only 9 available when we tried it out. They could also introduce more markets within each line to make it a richer experience. However, the main US sports are listed, so if that’s what you’re looking for, you should be happy! Don’t forget to check out the racebook for separate bets on the horses.

If you get stuck with anything, there’s a comprehensive FAQ section. If that doesn’t sort your issue then you can use the live chat feature or contact support using the email: [email protected]. Response times are fast, particularly if you use the live chat!

When depositing, there are various options, but you will need to check depending on your country. They have all the common methods, including: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Person to Person methods, MoneyBookers, Neteller, Check and Money Order.
