Sportsbooks - Which do you recommend?

Okay, just curious what sportsbook you are using this year for NFL and College. I am looking to switch from what I have been using for something that update a little sooner. I used to use Sports Interaction but would like to get away from them. Any good bonuses?? Thanks in advance.

You can't get away from Sports Interaction, they got away from you first (no more USA members).

BTW, I'll probably end up using Bodog even though getting your deposit method verified is a pain in the ass and their odds suck. We really don't have many options though.

How about BetUS? I am at work so I don't know if they are a go for us USA folk or not. I am blocked from "gambling related" sites.

I would like to take this opportunity to warn everyone about Sportsbook. Stay far, far, far away from them. I don't personally use them, because I don't gamble, but if I did, I'd have been lied to by CSRs numerous times and be entering Week #12 on an outstanding withdrawal.

lol some asshole won a judgment against Bodog for a method patent infringement (a method patent puts a patent on a process and not a product) involving online betting and as part of the judgment has ordered the domain name for bodog.com to be seized. Bodog.com is now down and users must go to newbodog.com now.

What a fucking asshole.

Go to newbodog.com and re-download the poker client

Or if you're familiar with regedit, you can find the bodog keys and change the value in the keys from bodog.com to newbodog.com

I must be blind, but I don't see where it says no USA members at Sports Interaction.

Well, I guess I will stick with Sports Interaction. I do like their $1 minimum bets.

It does say it is regulated in North America so....

Yeah..what is up with the 'regulated'? The 10% bonus may be worth it to me to change from bodog to them. hm.....

Anyone else use them?

Jim Kelly!

But seriously, the $1 minimums I love. Plus, take a 6 team parlay for a buck and win a nice chunk of change, it is all good.

Okay. I'll probably just take care of this now. I like the bodog site a lot better, but I'd get no bonus, and I heard they are kind of a pain to get money out of.

Ok, made a mistake about Sports Interaction. It's SportingBet that is closed to US players.

Damian: Hi Jason. How may I help you?
Jason: hi, do you still accept bets from USA players?
Damian: Yes we do. We just do not accept bets over the phone.
The "regulated" part means they have an independent body (for almost all sites based in Canada it's the Kahnawake Gaming Commission) that insures that players are treated fairly, everything is legit with the online casino, that players get paid, etc.

Bodog is a pain to get money out of. I had to send them scans of my DL, scans of my debit card used, some form to fill out, a copy of a utility bill, and a stencil of the numbers on my credit card by putting a piece of paper on top of it and scraping a pencil on the paper.

Pretty much the standard way now that Neteller is gone for US players to get money in and out is by debit card deposits and paper check withdrawls.

By the way, I pay via swiftpay. You make a deposit to swiftpay and then take it from there and deposit to sportsinteraction.

I used to use them a lot. Their habit of taking action(and paying out winnings) on events that had already finished made them an early favorite of mine.

Betus.com has a 10-50% bonus, payouts delivered in a week and they accept US players. If you deposit $500 its 25%, $1000=35% $5000+=50%

100% bonus if you open a poker account. Im not sure of all the details and why you get 100% for poker and less for sportsbook, Im sure you have to let them rake a certain amount before you see the 100%, but I went to espn.com did a search for daily line and it listed 4 different sites, betus.com had the best bonus.

newbodog.com
sportsbetting.com
sportsbook.com
are the sites listed on espn. Ive been with bodog for years now, but they have done away with the bonuses and Im tired of the BS beats in the poker room.
