With legal sports betting becoming more accessible since PASPA was overturned back in 2018, we’ve seen many companies enter the space, including industry heavyweights DraftKings, FanDuel, William Hill, and more.
While these are all well-established in the gambling ommunity, we tend to forget about new companies that will emerge, and that includes the likes of SportsBetting.com.
There’s not a lot of history in regards to Sportsbetting.com, but the digital sportsbook is owned by The Carousel Group.
SportsBetting.com will be looking to expand quickly, but in the meantime, let’s see what users are in for.
|Clean interface||Lack of long-standing promotions|
|Welcome Bonus||Payment options fairly limited|
Although the interface isn’t minimal by any means, the color scheme is a pleasant aesthetic and quite professional looking. SportsBetting.com also does a nice job with its welcome bonus and the intermittent promotions, that are usually game-based. On that same note, SportsBetting.com could benefit from adding more “static” promotional offerings outside of the welcome offer. We also hope to see the brand extend to other patent options such as PayPal, as that is one of the more convenient payment options out there.
SportsBetting.com currently has a wonderful welcome offer. For new users in either NJ or IN, you will have a risk-free bet of up to $250 total.
For new players, SportsBetting.com offers an excellent welcome offer. In essence, the offer is this: Players who deposit $10 or more will be able to get the first week losses back if the losses exceed the winnings.
There are some caveats to note, though.
The cap for this free credit is $500 and this applies only to single bet wagers.
Other than that, there is no promo code that must be entered to take advantage, this is a promotion that is offered with the creation of a new account.
The registration process at SportsBetting.com is fast and simple. In fact, on the page, it even says it takes less than two minutes, and that is accurate!
The signup is on one page and asks for the following information: Name, email, password, address, phone number and last four digits of your social security number.
Do not be alarmed by the site asking for this kind of information. This is the normal amount of information that would be requested by online sportsbooks.
Mazooma is a payment method in which we were initially not familiar with. However, according to SportsBetting.com’s customer support, Mazooma is “used to connect with your bank account.”
This service links to your bank account and has added security. It appears synonymous with an ACH transfer.
Overall, the experience with the SportsBetting.com desktop platform came with no lag or agitating buffering going between pages. The carousel ads at the top of the page also went from one to the next with ease and no lag.
For the look of the site, as mentioned there are ads for the sportsbook at the top of the page, but above that are links to login/register, the home page, live betting options, 24/7 customer support chat, promotions, your betslip, and a drop-down menu all the way to the left-hand side that lists the different sports and other links such as to the help page, news, and Responsible Gaming.
Directly above the ads are the different sports offered with a logo resembling that sport (footballs, baseballs, basketballs, etc).
Lastly, below this are the live contests and ones coming up for each sport that brings us to the conclusion of the page.
When a selection for a bet is selected, the betslip in the upper-right-hand corner of the page lights up green. Once clicked, you can simply just place your wager there.
Again, although it's not necessarily a minimalist interface it’s professional looking and gives a similar feel to FanDuel, but cleaner.
Currently, SportsBetting.com does not have a mobile app for either Android or iOS. Being so new, this was to be expected, but SportsBetting.com does understand the need for one and will plan to launch one in the near future.
All SportsBetting.com software is proprietary and owned by the company itself. Nothing is outsourced and SportsBetting.com has gone on record saying that the sportsbook will have “government-approved data centers and world-class security” and “state-of-the-art data security and encryption”. This is all extremely encouraging, especially for new users and offers that extra peace of mind.
Overall, when it comes to totals, SportsBetting.com seems to be right on par with other top competitors, but spreads seem to be a bit different in some spots by about .5 points for both the underdog and favorite. For moneyline, again, fairly similar give or take a few points in either direction.
SportsBetting.com offers a few different forms of customer support.
In the drop-down menu found in the upper-left-hand corner of the page, there is a link to the Responsible Gaming page.
Here, players will be able to access information pertaining to protecting minors, signs and warnings to look for within yourself or family/friends who may have a gambling problem, and limits you can set on yourself.
Yes, players will be able to self-impose restrictions on themselves as needed, including deposit, time and bet limits. Players can also self-exclude themselves from the site for a certain amount of time.
Overall, SportsBetting.com has some things to address, but being so new to the sports betting sphere, it appears to be off to a great start. After a mobile app is added, SportsBetting.com should focus on adding different payment methods and additional promotions. However, as of now, SportsBetting.com has an excellent skeleton of a platform that could compete with the top guns of the industry in no time.
