Online Sports Betting

Trying to find a trusted and reputable online sportsbook can be an overwhelming task. With so many that are there, it can be difficult to know which one’s are actually legit. Since you’ll be depositing your hard earned cash at their site, you’ll definitely want to do your homework.

Financial Stability

By far the most important criteria you need to find out is if they’re financially stable. What it comes down to is this; if I deposit money, am I going to be able to withdrawal it along with any winnings that I may have won? Plain and simple, can I get my money out when I need it.

Since many online sportsbooks aren’t publicly traded companies and a number of them are based in the Caribbean, this can be a pretty difficult task to find out. You really need to do your research and get honest, unbiased, independent opinions from third parties.

Check out sportsbook review websites to find out if the book you’re interested in has any complaints from individuals not able to withdrawal money. This is probably where you’re going to get the most honest advice but you’ll need to make sure you’re getting advice from an unbiased review site…i.e. one that’s not getting paid to write a favorable review. Sportsbook Review is by far my favorite and without a doubt the biggest and most comprehensive one that’s on the Internet today.

Other Questions to Find Out

What is the vigorish or juice the sportsbook charges…i.e. what’s the commission they charge for placing a bet? This is very important to find out because it can save you a lot of money over time. They may even have certain days when the juice is lowered.

Is it easy to deposit and withdrawal money or do you have to jump through a lot of hoops? What types of bonuses do they offer for signing up and depositing money? Do they have a loyalty program? How is their customer service? Is there site easy to navigate through?

These questions and others are essential to find out before depositing a dime. However, you’re not going to find a sportsbook that’s going to rate at the top of the list for all of these questions. You’ll need to figure out which criteria are most important to you and make a decision from there.

The nice thing is, you can find the answers to all of these questions and more just by doing a little research. I’d also recommend going to sportsbetting forums and finding out what other sports bettors like and why. Ask friends and colleagues what sportsbooks they have used in the past and what’s been good and bad. When money is involved, just put in a little more time before making a decision.
