BetOnline is a great online sportsbook for bettors from anywhere in the world, including the United States.  They offer the largest sign up bonus you will find online and offer a great variety of sports betting odds on several sports.  They also offer very competitive odds, with me often finding BetOnline’s odds to be superior to 5Dimes, which is quite the feat.

BetOnline is continuing to grow and build their reputation.  I advise everyone to open a BetOnline account if possible because they are on their way to becoming one of the biggest and best sportsbooks online, especially for American bettors.

Internet horse racing wagers receive a daily 7% rebate for any daily losses at the racebook.

Sports Offered

BetOnline does not offer as extensive a list of sports options as many of the other online sportsbooks.  They do offer a wide variety of odds on the popular American sports though such as baseball, basketball, football, golf, hockey, MMA, soccer and tennis.


BetOnline is a great site for poker and casino play as well.  That said BetOnline is part of the Chico poker network, which is quite small compared to the bigger online poker rooms.  This means it may be hard to find tournaments and cash games of different types and limits at all hours of the day.  The casino is great though, with a good variety and some great bonuses.

Some of the casino bonuses offered include the live dealer casino $25 free play, 100% slots and video poker bonuses up to $1000, three different casino bonus options and a 20% casino rebate each month.  The poker room offers a 100% sign up bonus up to a maximum of $2500.  Head over to to learn more about the poker and casino options direct from the site.
