SportsBetting.ag combines a sportsbook with live betting, a racebook, a poker room, and an online casino. BetOnline purchased SportsBetting.ag in 2012 – the acquisition by that industry giant is responsible for the high quality of this site. Intuitive proprietary sports betting software, Betsoft-designed casino games, and a spot on the Chico poker network gives SportsBetting.ag excellent platforms across all the Web's most popular betting markets.Join Now
Overview of SportsBetting.ag
I'll start with some positive features of the site. Here are a few reasons to consider opening an account at SportsBetting.ag:
The site is well-designed and user-friendly. Most of the navigation happens in just two simple navigation bars. The top bar includes the following options: Mobile, Promotions, Cashier, Help, and Contact Us. From this menu, you can find every available answer to common questions or contact the site's staff for a more specific answer. You can make deposits, withdrawals, and inquiries about bonuses.
The second navigation bar breaks down the site's gaming categories: Sports Book, Live Betting, Race Book, Casino, Poker, and Skill Games.
SportsBetting.ag runs lots of promotions, most of which have reasonable terms. The list of bonuses from SportsBetting.ag is one of the longest in the industry. SportsBetting.ag gives near-equal weight to promotions for casino, sportsbook, and poker customers. Outside of the 50x bonus rollover for the slot promo, no rollover is higher than 8x, which makes them attainable. I'm not a bonus-chaser, but with terms like that, I might be tempted to win a quick $10 or $20.
The casino library is one of the best of any "all-in-one" site. I go into more detail below. The site runs Betsoft games. I love Betsoft for their innovative slot themes and designs, their huge library of table games, and the fresh, updated look of their software. SportsBetting.ag does a stunning job of displaying the best of Betsoft.
SportsBetting.ag has a good reputation. When a gambling site isn't handling its business properly, word gets out. Online sportsbook and casino bettors speak loudly on the subject of being ripped off. I found no serious allegations of mismanagement against the site. I don't base my opinions entirely on review sites, and I tend to trust a half-dozen or so sites that I know present legitimate information.
Don't believe me? Go ahead – Google for reviews and complaints yourself. You'll find a smattering of slow-pay complaints, but that's common in this industry thanks to widespread payment issues in certain markets.
Here are a few things I don't like about the site:
Licensure from Panama. According to CasinoListings, licensure from Panama isn't a ringing endorsement of a site's legitimacy:
"There is no authority or official process to follow in the case of any disputes with a casino operator licensed in Panama. Panama has some regulations set in place, but as it is relatively easy to obtain a license in this jurisdiction, casinos operating from Panama should not be fully trusted without a proven track record. We urge caution for prospective players thinking about depositing their money at a Panama-licensed casino."
The Panama government doesn't have an information-sharing agreement signed with any foreign government. That could become a big deal if you get ripped off and have to get involved in legal action with a site registered or licensed there.
No casino games, skill games, or poker via the mobile client. Only a limited number of sportsbook wagers and a few live sports bets are available via mobile. This is odd, because most of SportsBetting.ag's competition has been operating a casino game platform via mobile for years.
The wimpy software and limited variety of live dealer casino games. I expected an adequate library of casino classics with live dealers in a sleek interface, like I'm used to from the world's better live dealer programs. Instead, I got ugly, slow software that's only available for three games – craps, blackjack, and roulette.
Why even offer live dealer games if you're going to do such a sub-par job?
Read on for an overview of each of the betting options available at SportsBetting.ag.

The casino is the crown jewel of SportsBetting.ag. I know that the sportsbook is the main attraction. After all, the entire site was founded as a sports betting service, with the casino added a few years later.
Before we get into a breakdown of each category of casino games in the library, here are a few reasons why this casino game selection blew me away:
- Library size – 144 different games are available in six categories.
- Game variety – Table games get more attention than slots, surprisingly, which might bum out some slot fans, though Betsoft makes slots with high replay value and excellent effects.
- Audio and video quality – Betsoft is one of the top designers in the industry, and SportsBetting.ag does a good job of showcasing the best they have to offer.
Here's a look at each category of games currently available in SportsBetting.ag's casino:
Let's start with the list of table games hosted at SportsBetting.ag's casino:
I count twelve blackjack variations, twelve casino poker games, and five classic table games – an excellent variety that includes most of what you'd find in a live casino along with a few Web-exclusive extras. Since all these titles were released by Betsoft, they're guaranteed to be among the best-looking in the business. No one has unseated Betsoft as the online casino design king.
SportsBetting.ag's Instant Play Games
All casino games at SportsBetting.ag are available as instant-play titles only. No download version of the library exists, and the site's mobile platform is for sports betting only.
Think of this category as "Classic Slots" – this is the section of the site's casino game library where old-school, simple slot games are hosted. This section is further broken up into groups of 3-reel and 5-reel games, all of which follow the classic slot pattern, with few bonuses, no progressive prizes, and little in the way of theme or plot.
What they do offer is the quality design of any Betsoft title. They look nice, the graphics are crisp, and the titles perform without lag. Classic slots aren't my favorite – I like more bang for my buck. At my last visit, 28 such games were hosted in the "Slots" category.
The "3D Slots" section is made up of forty-five of Betsoft's most modern titles. The games collected here have intricate and well-developed themes, with unique symbols, a variety of line arrangements, bonus games, progressive prizes, and special effects. Forty-five may seem like a limited number compared to some RTG- and Playtech-powered sites with hundreds of titles listed. The reason this number doesn't bother me is that each of these titles has a lot of replay value.
I've never seen so many video poker variants at one site – certainly not at an all-in-one site, where usually video poker variety is the least of a site's concerns. The games here are broken up into multi-hand and single-hand versions and include all the classics (Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, Joker Poker, etc.) along with some unique and less-known variants, like Pyramid Poker and All-American Bonus.
If anything really disappoints me about the lineup at SportsBetting.ag's casino, it's the Skill Games section. I understand that this is a new venture for the site, but with just five games in the lineup (and no ability to test in free-play mode), I can't say that the addition of this category adds to the quality of the library at all.
Here's the full list of Skill Games available:
- Gin Rummy
SportsBetting.ag, like most of today's all-in-one sportsbook sites, was once a humble offshore sportsbook. Over the years, it launched online, added a poker room and an online casino, and became something bigger than just a sports book.
But the sports betting options available at this BetOnline-owned property are still enticing.
Here's the list of available sports markets:
- Auto Racing
- Martial Arts
- Futures & Props
The sportsbook's live betting options are average for the industry. I visited at a relatively-light time for the global sports schedule, so I wasn't surprised to see just eight upcoming live betting events, most of them NBA summer league contests that don't interest me. It'd be nice if the site could host a few more legitimate live betting wagering opportunities.
SportsBetting.ag's NFL Lines
SportsBetting.ag offers a mobile version of its sportsbook and live betting options. It's the only option the site makes available for mobile customers. I was put off by the fact that the mobile platform looks nothing like the desktop site, but this is a minor complaint. If I were to use the mobile site regularly, I'd get used to it. SportsBetting.ag's mobile platform includes about half the number of sports markets as the desktop site. The available mobile markets include:
- Martial Arts
- Futures & Props
I'm not sure why the site's mobile sportsbook offers so few markets – it seems like adding other markets is just a matter of adding entries into existing fields. It isn't like a casino, where games have to be translated for mobile display. It's confusing and disappointing.
Four wagering options are available for all sportsbook contests – straight bets, parlay and robin, IF bet and reverse, and teasers & pleasers. The minimum wager for all sports bets (including live and mobile wagers) is $1, and maximums vary by sport. Check this page for specific questions about maximum wager sizes.
SportsBetting.ag is a skin of the Chico network, which is not one of the top poker networks in the world. But it does manage to draw thousands of cash players at any given time. Some 2,450 cash game players are online as I write this, with an additional 360 players in tournaments.
The only games available on all Chico skins are Texas holdem and Omaha. You won't find any draw, stud, or mixed games like you will on some of the larger networks. You can see this as a positive thing – with fewer game choices, traffic is concentrated, which means more full games at different times of the day.
The name of the game at SportsBetting.ag poker is microstakes – games are available from $0.01/$0.02 up to a max of $5/$10 for holdem and $1.50/$3 for Omaha. As for tournament play, a full schedule is available every day. On my last visit, I counted 72 upcoming events in the next 24 hours. That's a slightly smaller schedule than at SportsBetting.ag's competitors, but the smaller network traffic is probably the reason for that.
You can contact SportsBetting.ag using any of three methods:
- via email at cs@SportsBetting.ag
- via phone (toll-free) at 1-866-843-9027
- via the site's Live Chat function
SportsBetting.ag is one of the better sites I've reviewed this year. They offer a quality service. From the variety in the casino game library, to the simplified site navigation, and even the frequent and realistic bonus offers, I was impressed. They're doing things right that the competition is getting consistently wrong.
SportsBetting.ag was a pleasure to review. The site is laid out in such a way that everything I went looking for was exactly where it should be – that's called intuitive design, and it's one reason why I respect this site. If you're a sports bettor who also likes online casino games or poker, this site deserves your consideration.
Is there a limit to how much I can win?
Yes, the site's T&C pages clearly state that players are maxed out at $125,000 in winnings per week, not counting certain parlay/teaser prizes and progressive jackpots.
What do I need to do to get a credit card payout?
The site warns that US players might have difficult using credit cards for payout and suggests using other methods first. If all else fails, the following process must occur: you need to send a copy of your photo ID to the site, as well as front and back copies of any credit cards you plan to use, and a utility bill or bank statement to confirm your address. These documents can be sent via email or fax.
Does SportsBetting.ag offer any free payout methods?
All customers are eligible for a $50 discount on the payout method of their choice once every calendar month. You have to make this payout request via email on Fridays, and you must specify that you are seeking the $50 payout method discount.join now
