BetOnline Sportsbook boasts on its site to have been a ‘significant presence in the online gaming community since 1991’, which seems a bit of a stretch when most consumer’s only started playing on the Internet from the mid 90s! However, we’ll let this go, and confirm instead that this Panamanian based online sportsbook has a credible history that saw it facilitating plenty of web-based wagers back in 2004.
Today BetOnline offers online casino and poker gaming in addition to the sportsbook and horserace betting it built its brand on, with a clear focus on bettors resident in the Americas and its customer accounts transacting in USD.

Layout & Usability
BetOnline corrals its sports betting choices into two areas; Horses obviously takes care of all the equine events it can offer, whilst Sportsbook is the home to all other categories. Overall the navigation is very straightforward, and finding bets of interest within the available sports is easy enough. That said, the Horses page looked a little uninspiring in its presentation, and with the Sportsbook’s submenu of sports we thought it a little curious to have greyed out options that could not be clicked – perhaps a tease of future sports BetOnline will be activating soon? Whatever the reason, the layout is not really as slick as it could be in our opinion, especially when compared to class-leading online sportsbooks operating in the European market.
Building up bets and placing them is also something we found a little clunky in comparison with many of the big online sportsbooks we’ve reviewed from European jurisdictions. BetOnline’s usability isn’t bad, but we can’t honestly say that it’s as elegant, intuitive and ‘fun’ as we’ve experienced elsewhere.
On the plus side, opening an account with BetOnline if you’re from an eligible territory is free and registration quick and easy, letting you into the action with a minimum of fuss.
Mobile & Tablet
BetOnline is easy to play on your Smartphone’s browser.
BetOnline offers a huge range of deposit and withdrawal options.
BetOnline offers excellent 24/7 support, 7 days a week. BetOnline uses Chat, Email, Web Message, Phone and Post.
BetOnline has a clear emphasis on serving customers from the Americas, with a primary interest in domestic sports and horse racing, augmented by the dominant global leagues in soccer. It’s a very competent online sportsbook in many ways and attracts plenty of action with its keen odds, but if your sporting tastes are more varied than the handful of options BetOnline currently offers you may ultimately find it just that bit too limited in comparison to the best online sportsbooks we’ve reviewed.
