Complete BetNow Review for July

BetNow is a global sportsbook that is extremely new to the industry. They are licensed in Curacao and accept players from everywhere in the US. While their sportsbook is their bread and butter, they do offer the usual variety of casino, table games, and a racebook. This is an honest look at our dealings with BetNow and everything we could turn up on their company and past customer experiences.

BetNow Review of Betting Types and Options

As one of the newer sportsbooks to the market, BetNow does not have the variety of betting options that we have seen in our other reviews. They offer almost everything you will find on sites like Bovada, BetOnline, and some of the other well known sportsbooks on the market, they just don’t offer as many options.

While you will find fairly typical futures and props, you will not find exotic props or a wide variety of in game or player props for a typical NBA, NHL, of MLB slate.

That being said, BetNow offers very fair juice, accurate lines and is a great option for the majority of bettors.

As far as their casino and table game options, again they offer a decent variety but no where near what you can find elsewhere. If you are looking for more than a solid sportsbook, then chances are you will be better off with Bovada or 5Dimes.

What we find BetNow does to make up for the fact that they are one of the newest faces to the industry, and maybe don’t have the variety of features that you find on other sites is to offer a really good sportsbook and back it up by great customer service.

In the research we did, there were very few complaints from actual BetNow customers, with the majority of their players reporting a very positive overall experience.

BetNow Review of Rollover Policy

As is the case for most sportsbooks, new players want to know what promotions are available and what the terms are for the bonus cash. As usual, you will see a rollover policy with BetNow for your bonus, but it is no where near as complicated as what you would find on many other sites.

BetNow actually has a very straight forward bonus and roll over policy: use their 50% bonus and you’ll have to roll over your bonus funds 8 times before you can withdraw them.

Alternatively, you can take a 25% bonus, which has only a 3x rollover requirement. Those numbers jump to 30 and 15 times when you deposit and play in the BetNow casino.

BetNow gives the following example of how the rollover policy works on the promotions page of their website:

Deposit $100 and receive $50 cash bonus, total balance $150.
Rollover if sportbook: $150 X 8 = Total rollover $1200.
Rollover if casino: $150 X 30 = Total rollover $4500.

BetNow Review of House Rules

House rules refer to specific rules a sportsbook has that apply to common things such as dead heats, when games run or cancel, alternative lines, and other oddities that happen in sports betting.

The house rules are fair and straight forward at Almost too much so, but again if there are no big complaints among existing players, then this is a positive for the bettor.

After reviewing all of the house rules at BetNow, we would say they are extremely close to what you find at popular global sportsbook BetFair.

BetNow Review of Platform / App UI & UX

While all of the domestic books have apps available through their websites and in the app store, that is definitely not the case when it comes to global books. BetNow does not yet offer an app for either iPhone or Android devices.

With that in mind, in place of an app review, we are going to be reviewing the BetNow mobile site.

There are two things to keep in mind when comparing the BetNow mobile website to a native application: first and most obvious, you won’t access the book through an icon on your phone, but straight through your device’s web browser.

This does not seem to be a major issue for most customers as they are used to accessing certain sites on their phone’s browser.

The second thing to keep in mind here is that the mobile website is exactly the same experience as their desktop product, simply optimized for mobile devices. You are looking at all of the same features and functions, just laid out in a way that makes the book easier to use on your device.

For people that have used either SportsBook or Bovada’s mobile website, the BetNow mobile site will have a very similar feel.

All features on the BetNow website, from the sportsbook to the racebook and casino, function perfectly on all mobile devices we tested.

Overall it is well thought out, easy to navigate and use, and while being a mobile site rather than native app, feels like a mobile-first product… no pinching and zooming in and out, or features that don’t function properly or are just flat out missing.

Your experience on your phone feels exactly like their desktop betting experience, which is exactly what you would hope for.

Is BetNow Legit?

We wanted to close this BetNow review by answering the million dollar question you likely came here to have answered. Yes, is 100% legitimate, and they have maintained a positive reputation in the online betting community.

While the federal government legalized sports betting in 2018, and more and more states are jumping on board, betting is far from everywhere in the US.

With that in mind, legitimate sites like BetNow are filling a much needed gap in our industry in states where betting is not yet legal. They offer a safe, reliable, place to wager on sports with straight forward house rules, nice promotions, and no risk of fraud.

BetNow Review Summary 2019

The bottom line: if you are looking for a safe, reliable sportsbook then BetNow is a decent choice.

BetNow Rating Overview

They offer a well thought out website, great mobile product, and we are yet to find a customer with a negative thing to say about their service.

BetNow Pros

  • Intuitive website design, easy to use
  • Who doesn't love a -110? 10% juice on most spread bets
  • Fast lines, updating throughout day
  • Nice variety of prop bets, futures, and some exotic props
  • Several ways to deposit, big new player bonuses

BetNow Cons

  • Mobile website only, no native app offered
  • While many forms of deposit accepted, larger bonuses for Bitcoin
  • Casino options somewhat limited compared to bigger brands

Beyond that, we find their casino and racebook to be somewhat average, they don't offer a feature-packed native app like most domestic sportsbooks, and while their promotions are fair and the terms of them are relatively straight forward, they are not the most aggressive offers in the industry.
