SportsBetting.ag Casino Section Review – Online Gambling, Mobile Casino Website

This is the official logo of Sportsbetting.ag an online gambling website, used with permission. The digital image consist of the white letters "Sports Betting" over a blue background. Sportsbetting.ag is part of the BetOnline group. You can read the review of this online casino under the picture.

Sportsbetting.ag casino section review

 

Sportsbetting.ag is a huge sports betting platform, part of the BetOnline group with a Panama license. The website is famous for it’s sports betting, and it is a very popular, very professional, top of the line sports betting platform focusing on US sports and US bettors. It has the three most important American sports (football, basketball, baseball + the usual: hockey, auto racing, golf, tennis, mixed martial arts, boxing, soccer, horse racing) and it even has digital sports betting, fantasy sports betting, live sports betting and lately esports (NBA2K, FIFA, NHL, Counter Strike, DOTA 2, Call of Duty, MADDEN NFL). However, this will not focus on the fantastic sports betting section of this website, but it will be a review of the casino section of the platform primarily. 

The casino section appears to be neglected at first, looks like it was slapped on, as an afterthought (from a website design perspective it definitely was) but the actual games that they have are really good, high quality for a US casino (especially the slots hidden in the live dealer section, at the bottom, they are the best they have, why it is hidden in the live casino dealer section is anyone’s guess… really bad design choices all around). It has 241 casino games, 157 slots, table games, card games, live dealer games, video poker, specialty games and you can play poker as well. 240 games + poker is honestly a pretty okay, average number for a casino, which accepts US players (they usually have around 300). And some of the games are really high quality among the best I’ve seen in US casinos, the latest Betsoft, Rival games are the equivalent of such European giants as Netent and Microgaming (none of them available to US players). Another plus is the company behind it, BetOnline a well known name is US gambling circles and has been around since 2004, and even though it has a Panama licence (a really low quality, even sketchy, so called “data processing license”, not even a real gambling license*) I still trust it. I trust them with my money (I was member for years here, at the main website Betonline.ag, same company) and I trust them to pay out my winnings.

*But in all fairness US casinos can only get licenses from very few places, one of them Panama and the others aren’t much better, some even worse. It’s just a legal nightmare, trust me I know, I’ve been writing about online gambling for 9 years… More info here, about US online gambling legality.

 

Sportsbetting.ag accept players from the USA or US territories. Full disclosure: I’m a registered player at this company, for 3 years now, mostly playing in the casino games section, slots but also trying my hand at sports betting (not on a professional level, just a hobby), mostly esports and horse racing (an odd combination I know 🙂 but I like video games and classic things like horse racing). I’m perfectly satisfied with this gambling platform and if you are from the US you know how difficult it is to find really good, trustworthy, professional online gambling websites, which have sports betting + casino + poker and accept US players. It really is difficult, because of the legal situation. But this is one is it, and the main website, the flagship website of the company BetOnline is even better, which I would recommend even more (gets most of the attention, usually best promos, bonuses, even right now the welcome bonus has much better playthrough req.). I wouldn’t trust many US player accepting gambling websites to pay out winnings in excess of $1 million, but this is one of them. E.g.: I won over $45 000, over a period of three years (mostly from sports betting) and I always got the money, ID check of course (it’s mandatory) but no excessive delays, no waiting for months like I had to do at other, smaller US bookmakers (although I never won more than a couple thousands at once, you have to wait quite long time with really huge winnings, they have a $3000 per week cap on payouts sadly, more of that in the “deposits and withdrawals section”).

As mentioned above this website has casino gambling, sports betting, poker and other special games all in one, a so called gambling platform, one of the biggest one accepting US players. This is basically just a different skin, theme, a different looking website but has the exact same things like the main website, everything else is the same, even the customer support is shared. If you like this one over the original, main website (,which I recommend more) then by all means choose this one.

 

If you don’t have time to read the full review and you are just looking for a short summary, just read this: This gambling platform is a really good choice for US players even if you are not into sports betting.  Even though the casino section is smaller and looks underdeveloped compared to the top notch sports betting section it still has 240 games, + live dealers + specialty games. The same amount you would find at a standalone casino, so you are not losing out on anything and the website has sports betting and an active poker scene too. So I definitely recommend this for US players. But! I still recommend the main website over this, because it gets the most attention, and has better bonuses and promos and has the same games, you can read the review and check out BetOnline, the main website here.

 

BUT! for European players this is still not recommended, I recommend Betsson instead, it’s very similar, it’s a gambling platform that has sports betting + poker + casino section just like this but the casino section at Betsson has 1500 games!!! Instead of the 241 here at BetOnline, and the poker scene is even more active and it focuses on European sports, so it’s a better choice for EU players. However, it does not accept US players at all. Of course if you are interested in betting on US sports this is still the best place for you, largest selection of US sports online.

This is the image of the 'Simon says' part of my casino reviews. Next to this picture is my description of my review methodlogy and explanation of the scoring system and data points analysed.

Simon says: There are two big categories in the world of online gambling, casinos, which accept US players, and casinos which do not accept US players. Sportsbetting.ag is firmly the former, accepting players from the USA and US territories. This is important to mention in a review, because radically different games are available to both of these casino types and they should be reviewed differently. Primarily European (primarily targeting European players, mostly licensed in Europe, UK gambling license often) gambling websites always have better and more games, because the best software providers, due to licensing and legal issues don’t work with casinos, which accept US players.

The casino games section of Sportsbetting.ag has 241 games, including slots, video poker, table games and classic casino games. While a typical European casino has about 800 games and has interesting unique games as well, including live dealer games, digital sports betting, regular sports betting, digital scratchcards, game show type games like Deal or No Deal etc… Therefore a US casino is always going to look bad compared to a European online gambling website.

You can read more about why this is, and about the legal status of domestic and offshore gambling, online gambling in the USA here. Be warned, pretty complicated, dry read.

So, a good US casino would still be only 3/10 compared to a European one. However, In a review I would still rate a good US casino 7-8/10 because different context, and for different players, and that’s all there is for US players sadly. Therefore when I review casinos, bookmakers, gambling websites I use a separate scoring system for both fundamentally different types. A good US casino will still get 7/10 or 8/10 like it should ,instead of a 3/10. Just wanted to mention this, to avoid confusion as to why a 300 games US casino might get the same score as a EU powerhouse with 1000+ games. People already made remarks about this in the comments section. I hope this clears it up why this is the way it is. If you are not form the US there is no point to play in a US casino or sports betting website, really you have much better options.

 

This is the illustration right next to my review and research methodology part. You can read about my review methodology, and scoring system I use throughout the review.

Review methodology: In each section I review one of the primary attributes of the casino, these are: list of countries not accepted, list of games, deposit and withdrawal process and methods, uniqueness. Each of these aspects then gets points ranging from +2, meaning exceptionally good to -2, exceptionally bad. Additionally at end of the review I go through what I consider to be less important secondary attributes, such as live support chat, VIP, loyalty program, mobile compatibility, other reviews, bonuses, promotions.
At the end I tally all the points and add and subtract them from 10. This will give the final score of the casino. I use a 1 to 10 scale, 10 being the best and 1 being the worst, no 0 or minus scores.

Sportsbetting.ag online casino review

 

1., Who can play: The most important thing for a player in a new casino is whether you can actually play or not, so here is the list of all the countries not accepted at SportsBetting.ag gambling platform. So before you read any further let’s determine whether you can actually play at all.

/Clarification: The country of your residence, your official address, what’s on your ID card (or address card if it’s a separate thing in your country) is what you should be checking, not your current residence. So if you are from the UK and you currently temporarily reside in the US, you should put down your UK address. It’s important, because if you win, they will ask for your ID and/or address card to make sure you are who you said you are on the registration form, and they will check the address on your ID, if it’s not the same as what you put down during registration they will instantly perma-ban you. And all your winnings will be confiscated, no matter how much you won! Be careful! /

It’s a very short list, considering they have a Panama licence (a very laissez faire, very few restrictions, very low qaulity license) this is no surprise. Just like at most casinos, the banned countries are overwhelmingly developing countries. Companies always claim it’s because of the nebulous, arbitrarily defined term “bonus abuse” but in all fairness I’m pretty sure it’s also about banning poor people. Understandable, someone from a country, where $5 is a lot of money is going to cost the casino more than it brings in. Still, I have quite a few visitors from developing countries so I know how difficult it is for them to find good gambling websites due to such digital discrimination. Interestingly, and somewhat suspiciously the list of banned countries is different from the main website. Which countries a gambling websites bans is determined by the licence, software providers and the company, considering that all three are the same as the main website it’s weird that they would have a significantly different list. As someone who is writing about online gambling and analysing casinos for 8-9 years this instantly strikes me as suspicious. Because of these two issues I’m going to deduct -1 here.

Let’s move on to the actual website, now that we determined you can play at the casino/bookmaker.

Unlike many other gambling websites they don’t try to aggressively force you to register. However, there is no demo mode for the games and certain parts of the sports betting section and the entirety of the poker section is hidden behind the registration form.

Parts of the website is gorgeous, full of advanced, unique features but other parts (all of the casino games section) is very neglected looking, resulting in a weird mix. Mobile compatibility is like that as well, it’s a mix. Honestly, for a big gambling portal this is not okay, -1 points for inconsistent quality.

Too many developed countries restricted for a Panama licensed gambling website, significantly different lists of banned countries on the different websites of the company: -1
Some parts of the website look neglected, issues with mobile compatibility: -1

 

2., Games: The second most important thing to players is the number, and also the quality of the games. Sportsbetting.ag has, as I counted, at the time of the review 157 slots, 48 table and card games (excluding poker), 12 live dealers and 8 interesting unique specialty games, that makes 240 casino games total. This is actually an average amount for a US casino.

Let’s see the quality.

It’s mostly Betsoft and Platipus Studios games, which is really good for a US casino. Betsoft is probably the best software provider that is available to US casinos right now. It has gotten very good over the years and their latest slots can compete with giants like Microgaming or NetEnt (neither of them available in US casinos). And Platipus is one of the rarer brands I see, which is a nice change, instead of seeing the same slots as at every other casino. They also have games from other smaller studios like Nucleus Gaming, Bla Bla Bla Studious etc. and some slots that interestingly appear to be really old, really nostalgia inducing slots from the 1990s like Touchdown Frenzy, Area 51, Slot Monsters – mostly from Parlay Games. I personally really like that they have these old classics, but let’s be honest, without the nostalgia factor these are really ugly for modern audiences. All in all an okay selection, but still not enough, 157 slots and 240 games in total are not enough nowadays, so they get -0.5 for having a good but limited selection of games.

The live dealer games are from Fresh Deck Studios.

The poker section is the poker app from Chico Poker Network, it’s a pooled player base. In terms of activity it’s above average, but in terms of quality of play it’s below average, soft compared to a dedicated, standalone poker site. This is because this is a gambling platform primarily focusing on sports betting and therefore there will be always players who are just getting started or at a basic level.  You can find all the traditional game formats you’d expect plus a few newer variants:  6+ Hold’em, Windfall lottery SNGs, Boost Poker. The poker app works perfectly on mobile devices.

In conclusion, the casino games section only appears to be neglected in fact it’s full of good quality games, but they should add more and redesign, redo the entire casino games section of the website.

Good but limited selection of games: -0.5

 

3., Deposit and withdrawal options: The third most important thing to a player are the deposit and withdrawal options. You obviously can’t win anything unless you bet money. And in this area is where Sportsbetting.ag still needs to improve.

Sportsbetting.ag offers the following deposit methods:

  • Bitcoin and Etherium, Litecoin
  • Credit Cards (Mastercard, Visa, American Express)
  • Wire Transfer
  • Person-to-person transaction
  • Money Order
  • Cashier’s Check

.

As you can see they accept the main credit cards which is the most important thing. A growing number of US casinos can not accept credit cards anymore due to legislation concerning international transactions but not here (although it is limited to $2500 maximum per successful deposit). It’s great that they accept various digital cryptocurrencies and they are probably your best option for depositing larger amounts of money, over $2500 per deposit.

Let’s the various payout options at Sportsbetting.ag,and this is the most problematic part of the entire gambling platform:

  • Bitcoin and Etherium, Litecoin
  • Wire transfer
  • Various person to person methods
  • Check by Courier

Credit cards are not an option when it comes to getting your money. Sadly this is typical for all US casinos, when it comes to getting your money.

That’s just the way it is because of how international transactions are regulated (and the casino is registered in Panama, an offshore location, and the payment often comes from various shell companies, if it is to and from the USA, let’s be honest here, they do a lot of shady things to get around these regulations…, but it’s all for the benefit of the players, so that they can get their winnings faster and easier, because if they didn’t do these things it would be even more restricted, so no deduction, but still shady tbh.). Luckily wire transfer is still an option, and that’s what most people use. And this is the problematic part, taken directly form their terms and conditions page:

“The minimum amount that you can withdraw via Bank Wire Transfer is $500 and the maximum withdrawal amount is $3,000.”  – 1 transaction per week

This is a huge problem, not only do they not cover the wire transfer fee, they also limit the withdrawal amount significantly. $3000 per week is not much, indeed very little. This also applies to Bitcoin payouts as well, and the other methods are even more limited. If you were to win $1 million it would take you 6.38 years to get the full amount! Not okay! This is my biggest issue with them. They also don’t pay the wire transfer cost, which can be as much as $50, per transaction! So from $3000 you would only get $2950 per week, and out of the $1 million, $ 16,650 would be the cost of wire transfer. Not okay, deducting the maximum amount -2 for this, this is a problem.

Very limited per week maximum withdrawal amount for all payout methods, does not cover wire transfer fee: -2
An extra, additional -1 because even the Bitcoin payout is limited to $3000 per week
(that’s definitely only them limiting payers on purpose, they can’t say that’s the bank’s fault or due to legal reasons…), total: -3

 

4., Uniqueness: And the last main category that gets a score is innovation, unique and interesting new online gambling games and features. Anything that makes you “Wow, that’s amazing.”. Does Sportsbetting.ag has the so called ‘wow-factor’? Yes! There are only a few websites which have sports betting, poker and also casino games that do all of them good, and accept US players. This is one of those rare gems. And believe me they are rare indeed, speaking from experience here. The poker section is active, the sports betting section is fantastic and they have good casino games too. They even went the extra mile to get live dealers and they have specialty games (although only 8) and rarer slots. However, the quality is inconsistent and 240 games is jut not enough nowadays, so they only get +1 instead of the maximum possible +2 in this category.

Innovation, interesting, unique features/games: +1


 

 

 

The following are less important optional factors, but still contribute to the total score:

 

-Live support chat: Sportsbetting.ag has a round the clock, 24/7 live support chat, you can also call them and write them emails. +1

 

VIP, loyalty program: There is no rewards, VIP, loyalty program that I could find. -1

 

-Mobile compatibility: The newer games are mobile compatible, most games released in the last few years work on mobile devices. Technically all of them work on mobile devices if you have the hardware. However, you can tell most games (especially the older games) were not designed for such small screens originally. But that’s hardly the casino’s fault. Not to mention it’s not realistic to expect the same gaming experience on mobile as on PC, just not realistic. All the games are instant-play, accessible right from the browser, no download necessary. No points awarded or deducted.

 

-Other reviews: I always check what other review sites say about a gambling site, to make sure my personal experiences are not out of the line and to check whether the casino or bookmaker had any scandal that perhaps I have missed. Sadly BetOnline (the parent company) did have a scandal. A few years ago, a blackjack dealer of the third party live dealer network they had on the website at that time was caught cheating (Sportsbetting.ag used the same live dealer network at that time). A player recorded a dealer switching cards to change the hand, resulting in numerous players to lose. BetOnline officially ended their relationship with 3rd party dealing vendor Global Gaming Labs after this (and Global Gaming Labs went bankrupt not long after this). It’s not actually the casino’s fault. However, getting embroiled in a scandal is definitely a warning sign, at the very least it shows us that the casino did not pay any attention, did not oversee the live dealer partner. We can only hope they do it now ( but I doubt it). That’s luckily the only scandal I could find relating to BetOnline. -1

 

-Casino bonuses: This is the part where you can clearly tell that this is not the main website of this company, just a secondary skin, and a pretty domain name. In case of every gambling company there is always clearly a flagship website, and here this is Betonline.ag not this one. Let’s illustrate this by analyzing their current (current at the time of the review) welcome bonus for new players:

Betonline.ag
100% deposit bonus up to $1000 x3, wagering requirement 30x

Sportsbetting.ag
100% deposit bonus up to $1000 x3, wagering requirement 40x

Spot the difference. It’s the same exact bonus, only shittier. I hate it when casinos do this and it’s so common. That is why I still recommend the main website instead (you can check the review and that website here). It’s a tiny difference but just enough, because in the world of online gambling any bonus above a 30x wagering requirement is considered a bad bonus, and below it is a good one. So this just makes it into a bad bonus that is more beneficial for the casino and it is designed to make you lose money instead of helping you win it. -1 point deducted for bad and intentionally worse bonuses than the main website of the group.

 

 

Total score: Sportsbetting.ag gets 6.5/10, 3 stars, not recommended over the main website of the company, try the flagship website instead (click here to check it out).
