BetNow Sportsbook Review
Registered in Curacao, BetNow is an independent bookmaker that begun life in 2016. As a new face in the industry it remains to be seen how far Betnow will grow. Although with the endorsement of the OSGA (Offshore Gaming Association) they appear on the right tracks. Due to its infancy, BetNow lacks the detailed history of other gambling sites and therefore the player reviews – despite this early indications appear positive. BetNow offers markets for players in the United States and worldwide also allowing for customers to play in Bitcoin.
As most fledgling companies are they appear intent on spreading their name through advertising their odds on some large North American media companies including: ESPN, Fox Sport, Bleacher Report and some more regional publications like the Los Angeles Times. The choice of media company is a clear indication that BetNow sees itself as infiltrating the North American market and is concentrating its focus on doing so. With such an outlay on advertising it is certainly likely that BetNow would not scam or rip off customers and risk tarring or blacklisting their new name in such a competitive industry.
BetNow’s sportsbook offers competitive prices with decent enough parlay and teaser odds and a massive list of betting opportunities for the main North American top four sports, NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL. Internationally it offers an average and to be expected selection of sporting opportunities with the major European soccer leagues as well as Mexico and South America including the Champions league, Europa League, Copa libertadores and Copa Sudamericana, and International games. They also offer the chance to bet on other sports including Auto Racing, Mixed Martial Arts, Boxing, Tennis, Golf and women’s sports. If bored of sporting betting, they also offer a series of Casino games and a Racebook.
Despite offering a wide selection of sports betting, their in-play or live betting options are limited. They offer the possibility to do so on just about all the North-American sports, indicative of their desired market. The betting options are also pretty basic in their scope only offering players markets in sides and totals – dependent upon the sport of course. That said, their in-play betting interface and software is of a good standard and is very easy to use.
Their extras options include a decent casino gaming section with 16 table games, 18 slot games, video poker, keno and a live dealer casino. They also offer a Racebook, which offers a very standard fare for Racebooks including a $1 minimum and 5% returns.
Like most of the smaller bookmakers, they do not offer a downloadable app for players, but simply a descaled mobile version of their desktop site. As a new company, you would expect their site to be of a decent standard, and it is. It is a pretty simple and concise format with all the markets listed on the left and a bet slip on the right. Their Casino games option also offers several mobile games.
BetNow offers 24/7 support, they offer the usual live chat option, which is available for registered members or those just interested with a few queries. They also offer email and phone support, with a high level of email responsiveness.
Withdrawal of payouts is a relatively easy fare, offering several methods with the only fee free option being via direct deposit. However this is not permitted within a few US states. Money Gram and Western Union are also used, but due to the companies infancy it is difficult to give a fully secure analysis of the speed or ease of such withdrawals. BetNow is a new company in the industry and at present it is hard to give players a guaranteed overview, yet what does seem true is that they offer a decent selection of gaming options and as a company intent on making a name for itself in a congested field – they will be keen to impress upon punters and earn favourable reviews.
