BetOnline is a very solid sportsbook that has emerged as one of the best sport betting options in North America over the past several years. They accept players from around the world, but you can tell just by looking at their bet offerings they are primarily focused on the big North American sports.
The BetOnline bonuses are some of the best in the business. Not only do they offer a solid 50% up to $1000 welcome bonus for new players, but they also offer a lifetime bonus with all reload bonuses receiving a 25% matching bonus. They also offer risk free bets of $25 and $50 respectively to use their live betting and mobile platforms.
One of the main reasons I like BetOnline is the fact they are adopting Bitcoin and other top cryptocurrencies as their primary banking options. Your first Bitcoin deposit at BetOnline receives a 100% matching bonus up to $1000 and all of their cryptocurrency options offer free deposits and withdrawals.
BetOnline is a solid option for Canadian bettors and my favourite sportsbook outside of our top 3.
Sign Up Bonus
BetOnline offers new sign ups a 50% matching bonus up to $1000. You will need to enter BOL1000 as the promo code (this code may change in the future so be sure to check yourself) when making your first deposit to trigger the bonus.
In addition to the first deposit bonus, BetOnline also offers a 25% lifetime bonus on all subsequent deposits. This is a huge selling feature for me because most other betting sites do not offer reload bonuses and I like the fact that BetOnline rewards loyal players with this lifetime bonus.
BetOnline also has a special bonus available for each players first Bitcoin deposit. Your first Bitcoin deposit earns you a bonus equal to 100% of the deposit, up to $1000. Use promo code CRYPTO100 to claim this bonus when depositing (again – the promo code may change).
**There is a 10 times rollover requirement with the new player bonus, a 5 times rollover with the lifetime bonus and a 14 times rollover with the crypto bonus. Learn more about bonus requirements here.
Canadian Sports Coverage
BetOnline focuses on the big North American sports such as baseball, basketball, football, hockey, martial arts, soccer and tennis. These sports are listed under the ‘Main Sports’ menu in the BetOnline Sportsbook, which is featured on the site. To find the other more obscure sports you must select the ‘Other Sports’ drop down menu.
BetOnline has a strong Live Betting section that features live betting on all major sporting events. You won’t find the same live betting variety as you would at a site like Bet365, but if you are just looking to place live wagers on the major North American sports you should be able to find the games you’re looking for at BetOnline.
BetOnline also offers a live betting $25 free play where your first live betting wager is risk free. This means if your first live betting wager loses you can receive a refund by emailing a request to BetOnline support.
The BetOnline mobile site is very straight forward and easy to navigate. I personally really like it because the layout is extremely simple and you can find the bets you want to make within a couple clicks. Check out the screenshots below for an idea of how the mobile version of the site looks.
BetOnline also offers a mobile betting $50 free play where the first bet you place via your mobile device is risk free. If your first mobile wager loses you can receive a refund of the bet amount by contacting BetOnline support.
BetOnline has a huge variety of deposit and payout options, making it very easy to get your money into and out of the site.
BetOnline accepts all of the classic deposit options such as Visa, MasterCard, etc. But what sets them apart is the adoption of cryptocurrencies for both deposits and withdrawals. BetOnline offers Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin deposits and withdrawals. These cryptocurrencies are free to use for both deposits and withdrawals, and BetOnline is an early adopter of what I feel will be the most common deposit and withdrawal method of the future for sports betting sites.
BetOnline also offers Interac e-transfer deposits, which is my favourite deposit/withdrawal method for Canadians. They also accept American Express, which shows they really do go all out to accommodate all of the most popular deposit options for Canadians.
BetOnline has very solid customer support. They prefer being contacted via email (email@example.com) and have great response times through this method. A lot of the promotions involve emailing the customer service team to claim and from my experience these emails are responded to very quickly with the bonuses applied to your account without hassle.
You can also contact BetOnline support through Live Chat or by phone at 1-888-426-3661.
