Meet SportsBetting.ag, a sportsbook that is smack-dab in the middle of the pack.
On one hand, they do have some features that make it worth a visit, such as their vast array of prop bets. On the other hand, they have some annoying features, like the amount of documents you have to send when you request a withdrawal.
Dragging them down is a number of customer complaints stemming from account closures, fund confiscations and delayed payments. SportsBetting.ag falls under the same umbrella as Sportsbook.com (Jazette), which would make sense about the shaky payouts.
They have a good website and a very good initial bonus, but keep in mind that those are things to get you in the door. You might struggle getting out.
1. Who Bets Here
SportsBetting.ag is a public watering hole. They aren’t ones to get their lines up early and when they do, they are very soft. It’s also a place for those who don’t know about payout issues.
- Western Union
- Bank Wire
- Pre Paid Gift Cards
- Bank Wire
- Courier Cheque
2. Customer Service
SportsBetting.ag has below par customer service. Their customer service is fine until you have a problem, and then you can’t call them and that is a sign of their reliability.
Players have complained of bounced cheques and delayed payout times.
- Live chat
3. Placing A Bet
Once you login, you’ll find your vitals on the left-hand side (name, account, balance and pending wagers), the lines in the center of the page and the betting ticket on the right.
When you search through the lines, the display in the center of the page will change, while the ticket and vitals stay the same. That’s a nice touch since it means less page changes overall. When you make your picks, your betting ticket on the right will update and then you confirm to lock it in.
Methods of Betting
SportsBetting.ag has a good variety, but it’s worth clarifying what type.
In the past, a great variety meant that you had more props than everyone else. Nowadays, a great variety is live betting, exotics and mobile betting.
SportsBetting.ag has a good old school variety.
They have all of the major sports covered but where they do exceed expectations is props. For example, in the NFL, they’ll have prospective lines for all 17 weeks of the season before the first week has even kicked off.
They have specials for pretty much every sport and along with that, a decent amount of entertainment and wacky exotics.
- NFL Games: $7,000
- NBA Games: $3,300
- NHL Games: $2,200
- MLB Games: $3,300
5. VIP Program/Loyalty Program
The SportsBetting.ag sportsbook does not offer a VIP program at this time.
6. Bonus & Rebate Program
While it’s hard to give checkmarks to SportsBetting.ag for their customer service, their bonus program does deserve some props.
When you deposit initially you get a 25% cash bonus, which is very good. The rollover requirement is only four times, which is quite fair and the largest deposit you can make is $250.
On subsequent reloads, if you do them on a Thursday, you get 10% on your money on a maximum of $100 with a three-time rollover. There is also low 5% juice on Fridays, which is always a good thing.
7. Website & Usability
At a first glance, you would think that SportsBetting.ag is a fairly vanilla website but there is more than meets the eye.
Let’s start with the important stuff. As far as logging in and sports betting, the site is a bit sluggish. As mentioned, there aren’t many page changes once you are logged in, but jumping from page to page is a little slow for a site that doesn’t have a ton of flash or graphics.
Aside from that, the site does offer quite a bit.
They are socially inclined, which means you can follow them on Twitter, which gives you some generic sports updates and some Twitter-only bonuses. It’s a good idea and hopefully in the future, a good way to communicate to the book directly.
SportsBetting.ag also has a blog that can be reached from their front page, which provides some sports news and analysis, along with some sportsbook news.
They do have an archive of sports betting articles at the bottom of the page under “sports betting guides” but those are not updated as frequently, but you can find sports betting databases, which is a nice touch, although not really unique.
Beyond that, the site offers a couple of other cool tools like their five hottest games that are bet on and also a link to stats matchups for the major sports (provided by Statfox).
On the whole, there is quite a bit of resources for you on this site, which does improve the overall experience.
The SportsBetting.ag reputation is not great. They’ve had several players publicly speak about their long payout delays and they’ve had some battles with watchdogs about unfairly closing accounts.
In reference to long payout delays, that’s not a good sign. We all know that after you’ve done the work to get the winnings, we don’t want anything making us even more nervous after we request our money, so that’s not a good sign.
They fall under the Jazette family of sportsbooks and that company has many references on their resumes of the above problem, although it’s the best of the Jazette group, which is a backhanded compliment.
