GTBets is one of a small number of sportsbook/casino sites still open to North American customers. In fact, judging by the site’s exclusive use of English and the US dollar, Canadians and Americans are their main targets. The site doesn’t cover many exotic sports markets and incentivizes bets on major US sports. Though it is one of the newer sportsbook combo sites I’ve reviewed, I think you’d be hard-pressed to find many major complaints from customers.
How do I feel about the site? Let’s start with some positive
aspects that may have you considering opening an account:
GT Bets accepts wagers from customers in North America.
If you’re a sports bettor looking for an online book, and you
happen to live in Canada or the US, you’re short on options.
Finding a site with casino games, a racebook, and a sportsbook
that will do business with (most) US and Canadian customers is a
GT Bets use of Betsoft software for its gaming library is an
Betsoft is one of my favorite casino game
designers. Their games look modern. They’re slick, like video
games, and they tend to have high replay value, either because
they’re darn good looking (in the case of table and casino
games) or because they have interesting plots and high-quality
effects (in the case of slots). But the quality isn’t the only
reason I endorse the casino at GT Bets – the site also has
quantity to boast of, with hundreds of different casino games
under one roof.
The site’s promotions are easy to earn and potentially
I may complain about the hefty fees for deposits and
withdrawals, but it’s worth pointing out that GT Bets has some of
the kindest bonus terms I’ve seen in years. It’s hard to
quantify, since they use a points system instead of a
traditional wagering requirement, but it takes less time and
less “loyalty”‘ to earn them. It’s not much of
an improvement over standard online gambling promotions, but any
amount of improvement is worth celebrating.
Sports betting limits are realistic.
Most sides are limited
to $1,000 or $2,000, an indication that GT Bets isn’t for
professional bettors, but recreational guys like me. For some
bettors, this may be a negative thing – then again, GT Bets isn’t
set up for professional guys with big money. Go somewhere else
with your fat bankroll.
Now for some negative aspects of the site that may have you
thinking twice about joining:
GT Bets is licensed by the Curacao Gaming Commission.
I don’t put a lot of faith in gaming licenses secured from Curacao.
They’ve been in the business since the mid-90s, but that’s not
necessarily a good thing. What you’re looking for in a licensing
jurisdiction are rigorous standards and a tough application
process, neither of which are part of the services of the
Curacao Gaming Commission.
My main concern here is that if you had an issue with GT Bets ,
you’d have almost no recourse, since Curacao has no treaty with
the US government that requires the sharing of information.
GT Bets has a limited selection of available deposit and
GT Bets is open to wagers from all over the world, including the difficult markets in North America, but if
customers don’t have access to a legitimate way to send and
receive money, your services may as well be limited to gamblers
living on Mars. Almost none of those withdrawal methods are
available outside of Europe, and the same goes for the deposit
methods, save for the addition of branded credit, debit, and
gift cards. I’m also astounded at the fee structure in place for
most deposit and withdrawal methods – I’m used to seeing low or
non-existent fees at online sportsbooks and casinos. That’s not
the case at GT Bets.
All bonuses below require a rollover based on a point system
found on their promotions page.
First-time depositors are eligible for a 100% deposit match worth up to $250. You must deposit at least $35 to trigger this bonus. All sign-up bonuses require a 5x point rollover.
All customers are eligible for a 5% deposit match bonus worth up to $50 on every deposit after their initial one. All reload bonuses require a 5x point rollover.
Refer a friend and earn 20% of their first qualifying deposit up to $250. Your friend’s deposit must be at least $100. All referral bonuses require a 4x point rollover.
Racebook bettors can earn a rebate of up to 15% of their net monthly losses. Mobile wagers and wagers outside of the racebook don’t count towards the rebate or the rollover.
The US dollar is the only currency accepted at GT Bets.
Here’s a list of the site’s available deposit methods:
VISA / MasterCard deposits carry no fees. You can
deposit as little as $35.
Gift Cards deposits are also free. $35 – $1,000.
Direct Cash is a proprietary payment service. $10 fee.
$100 – $2,000.
Skrill deposits carry no fee. $35 minimum. No US or

Back2Card uses VISA or MasterCard products to process

Here is an overview of each of the gambling
options available at GT Bets.
GT Bets is all about “sports, casino, and horses.” At other
combo sites, the sportsbook is the main attraction. That’s
really not the case at GT Bets – here, the casino has better
features and (likely) more traffic. The sportsbook is almost an
after-thought in a lot of ways. The word on GT Bets, in reviews
by guys whose opinions I trust, is that the site’s sportsbook
really focuses on NFL football, to the detriment of other
This list shows every sports market covered by GT Bets:
Canadian League Football
This is a short list, especially in comparison to the big
industry books that are focused on more of a global market. The
variety of sports available for wagers is another indication
that this site is aimed almost exclusively at people in the US
Here’s a breakdown of the various bets available at GT Bets’
1st 5 innings
It’s nice that the site advertises a long list of available
betting styles, but if it lacks markets that appeal to people
outside of the lower 48 states, it’s always going to have
limited appeal, “1st 5 innings” bets or not.
GT Bets breaks the “football site” mold a little when it comes
to international soccer – most of the major leagues are
represented, as well as some minor ones as far away as Oceania.
But where football is clearly king is in the world of promotions
– the site’s “half-juice game of the week” runs only during NFL
season and is exactly what the name implies. This promotion even
works on the heavier-juiced live bets, making it an even better
deal for those customers.
At some combo sites, the casino is an afterthought, with the
sportsbook being the main focus. You could say that the
situation is reversed at GT Bets. I think the Betsoft-designed
casino is a much better feature than the site’s sportsbook,
especially if you’re not all that interested in professional US
and Canadian football.
GT Bets is home to 178 total Betsoft-design slot games, every
one of which is compatible with the site’s mobile casino
platform. The majority of these slots are classified as “5-reel
3D” slots – these are the best known games in Betsoft’s arsenal
– titles like 2 Million BC and Good Girl, Bad Girl.
GT Bets and Betsoft also partnered to provide a ton of simplified “classic”
slots with a single payline and easier rules. A variety of
jackpot progressive slots are also available. The slot category
is by far the largest category of games at the site.
You’ll find a long list of titles under this heading. Here’s
the full list of games that GT Bets categorizes as “table games”:
Tri Card Poker
21 Burn Blackjack
BSG American Blackjack
Single Deck Blackjack
Super 7 Blackjack
Caribbean Stud Poker
Draw Hi Low
BSG Pai Gow
Poker3 Heads Up Holdem
BSG Red Dog
BSG European Roulette
Common Draw Roulette
Triple Edge Poker
Three Card Rummy
Top Card Trumps
One feature of GT Bets game library that I appreciate is the
lack of “VIP” or “Premium” versions of their table games
clogging up the library. All these titles are either
straightforward casino games or variants of the same. It’s nice
to see so many casino-style poker variants available alongside
multiple Betsoft-designed mobile-compatible table game variants.
I’m a video poker fan, and I was thrilled to see the variety
of games available at GT Bets. Here’s the full list:
BSG Deuces Wild
Double Bonus Poker
Deuces And Jokers
Five Draw Poker
Jacks Or Better
BSG Jacks or Better
Split Way Royal
Tens or Better
GT Bets does a good job of covering the classic and new online
versions of the game without creating a list of worthless
variants only different in the colors used and the customizable
This is typically where casinos gather their high-advantage
games that don’t really fit anywhere else. Check out the list of
titles and you’ll see that GT Bets does the same thing with its
“Specialty Games” category:
Virtual Racebook 3D
Five versions of keno, a traditionally long-odds game,
alongside a virtual lotto scratch ticket and a virtual horse
racing game is a really weird collection of titles. It’s also a
group of games best left to true fans, as almost all of these
games involve wagers that give the house an obscene advantage.

GT Bets FAQ
Can all Americans open accounts at GT Bet?
No – the site forbids people who live in the following states from opening player accounts:
What is the weekly withdrawal limit at GT Bets?
Rather than impose a weekly limit, GT Bets’ terms and conditions look at it from a daily perspective. GT Bets says each player is limited to a maximum win of $100,000 per day.
Does GT Bets offer ____ bets on sports?
All of the following betting styles are available for all sports covered by GT Bets’ sportsbook:
What are the wagering limits for live bets?
Live bets require increased juice (as much as -125) and a stricter range of betting limits: $500 sides and $250 totals.
If GT Bets added a poker room, a virtual bingo hall, and a more robust mobile service, they could really compete on the world stage. For now, the site isn’t accurately described as “all-in-one,” since it’s really a glorified sportsbook and casino combo site. The bonuses are tempting, but a few other details (such as licensure from Curacao) make me not so sure about this service.
I remain neutral on GT Bets, but I’m reservedly optimistic. For my money, it doesn’t have enough experience, and I’m not crazy about the limited deposit and withdrawal methods. Then again, US customers don’t have much in the way of options for places to bet on sports and casino games. If you’re an American with access to one of the few deposit and withdrawal methods at GT Bets, you should give it a second look.
