BetNow Sportsbook and Casino Review for 2024

Mar 5, 2024, 12:49PM EST

Launched in 2015, BetNow is relatively new to the game. Best known for its sportsbook, BetNow also includes a great casino and live dealer offerings. Their sportsbook has competitive odds, a great selection of prop bets, and exciting weekly competitions, along with excellent customer service. I was also impressed with BetNow’s variety of virtual poker and blackjack titles.

Nevertheless, I thought the overall web design was outdated and the slots titles limited.

Pros

  • Excellent customer support that proactively follows up feedback
  • Industry leading sports and casino rebate program
  • Good variety of live dealer casino games
  • Weekly contests for chances to win $10,000+

Cons

  • Outdated design with not a very smooth interface

  • Limited number of specialty sports markets

Staff Opinion

Jeremiah Johnson

“BetNow is an excellent user-friendly gambling site that both new and experienced bettors will enjoy. What the site lacks in a modern, sophisticated design, it makes up for with its huge variety of moneyline and prop betting odds on different sports. The 100% welcome bonus should also help to attract new members looking for a great all-around online gambling platform.”

I was also impressed with BetNow’s variety of virtual poker and blackjack titles.

Nevertheless, I thought the overall web design was outdated and the slots titles limited.

The bonuses are not big (150% up to $150) but provide flexibility to suit your budget. I recommend BetNow for lower-deposit gamers and sports bettors seeking a tried and trusted operator.

BetNow User Interface

Once you log in to BetNow you’ll find a slightly unique layout when exploring the site. The prominent menu at the top of the page makes it easy for you to navigate between their casino and sportsbook.

The casino layout appears slightly more modern than the sportsbook, with tiles instead of drop-down lists for game selection. The casino is split into “Platinum Casino” and “Live Casino,” with the latter featuring not only live dealers but some virtual game titles not found in the former. Unfortunately, there are next-to-no strategy walkthroughs for newbies.

I found the general black-and-orange design of BetNow’s site to be quite dated compared to many competitors. The sportsbook/racebook fonts and tick boxes are clunky and seem designed with a desktop, not mobile, in mind.

My first impressions are that the main web interface has changed very little over the years. I could tell the sportsbook is the main draw, and I liked how prominently the NFL contest was displayed. The interface is functional but did not leave me too impressed.

BetNow’s Sportsbook 

For me, the sportsbook is BetNow’s main attraction, covering all the major sports alongside a separate racebook and live betting options. I saw several standout features. Firstly, I found good odds on BetNow compared to many other big-name competitors. The second is the functional bet slip, which made it easy for me to add parlay and round-robin bets.

The final thing I loved is the NHL, MLB and NBA weekly competitions. These can be entered for free for the chance to win $10,000 by picking that week’s winners plus the tiebreaker.
All-in-all a great sportsbook offering.

Available Sports to Bet On

I was impressed with the range of bets in these sports, which covered all major worldwide leagues, and even many lesser-known leagues and competitions (Brazilian basketball league, Dominican Republic baseball, and the Belgian soccer league amongst others). The odds are competitive – and in many cases better – than other major sportsbooks.

For me, the NBA, MLB and NFL are standout sports thanks to their weekly free-entry competitions.

However, if you are into more unusual sports in the US, such as cricket or rugby, there did not appear to be any offerings.

The racebook covers a good selection of horse races around the world, including harness racing, although it doesn’t cover dog racing.

BetNow serves all the main North American sports, including:

Betting Types at BetNow

BetNow has a great selection of futures, props, and in-game bets. The betting slip made it very easy for me to add parlay and round-robin bets to my futures selections.

The variety of props on offer more than matches any rival sportsbook I can think of. Props ranged from the number of individual rushing yards in football to the number of individual passes and tackles in soccer.

BetNow Live Betting Options

Live betting covers spreads, totals, and moneyline bets, with betting options for smaller leagues as well as major ones. In terms of the interface, I did not find it as functional on a mobile device as some competitors,  with it requiring excessive scrolling, and there is no option to watch live games.

However, on a desktop, it is relatively easy to find the games offered and the bet slip makes it easy to keep track of your bets.

I would say it is a solid live betting option if you are already signed up for BetNow.

Sports Contests at BetNow

Although I did not find any specific sportsbook bonuses, the free-to-enter weekly competitions make BetNow a stand-out option.

NBA, NFL and MBA Weekly Contests

Pick all this week’s winners, plus the tiebreaker, and you win $10,000 – with more consolation cash prizes to the top 20 on the scoreboard. As a freebie, it doesn´t get much better.

NFL King of the Hill

The player with the most points accumulated across all 17 of the seasons’ weekly NFL contests wins an additional $20,000 prize – with a further $30,000 divided among the next 29 players.

Horse Rebate

Weekly rebate of 10% on your net losses for horse racing, to soften the blow of any bad picks you´ve made!

BetNow’s Casino

There are little over 200 casino games in all, with 139 in the “Platinum Casino” and 66 in the “Live Casino”. This is lacking compared to dedicated casino competitors. The casino offering has been updated to incorporate a more modern tile-based format, although it is unclear why all the games aren’t in Platinum Casino.

Visionary iGaming, Mobilots and AST Gaming Solutions are the primary developers with some great titles. The large variety of virtual blackjack and poker games was a treat for me, with this being an area that many casino operators skimp on.

Live dealers are a great addition, although I found the slots disappointing.

Slots

There are only 92 slots titles in Platinum Casino and 47 in Live Casino. I thought the games were sadly lacking in variation, although I appreciated the progressive jackpot titles and I liked that the games were listed by the number of paylines, rather than the number of reels.

There were no dedicated slots bonuses.

If you like to play slots between sports bets or other casino offerings, they are a reasonable option. However, I wouldn’t sign up with BetNow purely for the slots. If you’re looking for a casino with a great slot selection, Wild Casino and Las Atlantis offer impressive slot libraries.

Here are some of the slots titles I enjoyed at BetNow:

1
golden buffalo slots
Golden Buffalo – RTP 95%
2
caesar slots
Caesar – RTP 98%
3
crackin eggs slots
Crackin´ Eggs – RTP 96.2%
4
mystic wilds slots
Mystic Wilds – RTP 96.25%

Table Games

I was impressed with the range of other table games, which included baccarat, craps, roulette and teen patti. These are great options if you are looking for some variety, with many other online casinos often neglecting these table games.

Titles include:

1
craps
Craps
2
baccarat
Baccarat
3
teen patti pro
Teen Patti Pro
4
european roulette
European Roulette

Blackjack

There are great blackjack offerings to match or exceed most competitor sites, with 10 blackjack titles in the Platinum Casino, and three in the Live Casino. I found loads of variety, from single and double-deck blackjack to double-exposure blackjack (where both the dealers’ cards are face up).

I appreciated that the rules of each blackjack title are prominently displayed, which makes it easy to find a variation to suit your needs.

My favorite blackjack titles were:

1
double exposure blackjack
Double Exposure Blackjack
2
double deck blackjack
Double Deck Blackjack
3
Single deck blackjack
Single Deck Blackjack
4
surrender multihand blackjack
Surrender Multihand Blackjack

Video Poker

Video poker is another area that left me very impressed with BetNow. The Platinum Casino has 18 main poker titles – with variations on classic 5-card poker, plus 6 alternative poker games including Pai Gow, Red Dog and Three Card Poker.

The games all have extensive descriptions of the rules, although a practice mode would have been helpful to get used to the different types of poker.

The diversity of poker titles was more than enough to keep me entertained, and I would recommend BetNow to anyone who enjoys virtual poker.

I particularly enjoyed these titles:

1
aces and faces poker
Aces And Faces
2
joker poker multi
Joker Poker
3
red dog poker
Red Dog
4
carribean stud poker
Caribbean Stud Poker

Live Dealer

I found the live dealers section to be a great option at BetNow, with 24/7 access to the live dealer lobbies. I counted nine blackjack games at any one time, alongside roulette, baccarat and super 6.

The ability to play other mini-casino games from inside the live dealer room while waiting for a space at the table was a very nice touch.

The blackjack games require a $10 minimum buy-in (compared to $5 at many competitors), which is high if you don´t know what you´re doing. For that reason, I would not recommend BetNow’s live dealers for rookies.

Poker Room at BetNow

BetNow does not have a dedicated poker room. Instead, BetNow links to a downloadable third-party application called Pokerrrr 2, developed by PT Farm Entertainment.

You can sync your BetNow account with Pokerrrr 2 to enter BetNow-hosted members-only games and tournaments.

As Pokerrrr 2 operates with a “gold coin” system, this is technically a social/sweepstakes poker room. However, these gold coins are traded for real money through your BetNow account.

The Pokerrrr 2 platform is certified by Gaming Labs International (GLI).

I particularly enjoyed the two weekly freeroll tournaments. There is also a range of buy-ins and daily tournaments, although I found waiting times could be long with less traffic than in other dedicated poker rooms.

My experience with Pokerrrr 2 was good, but I would prefer playing at an in-house BetNow poker room.

Poker Bonuses

There is a $52 BetNow poker room welcome bonus. This is available for selected tournaments, and you must play at least a 500-hand rollover to claim.

There are other poker bonuses available when making a separate registration with the BetNow-host affiliate, known as #MembersOnlyPoker. These bonuses can all be used in the Pokerrrr 2 room.

Types of Poker Games

BetNow hosts both Texas Hold´Em and Omaha tournaments.

Texas Hold’Em

This is the most popular variation of poker. You have an initial two-card hand. Three community cards are dealt face-up in the middle of the table. Two more cards are dealt to the middle. You need to make the best five-card hand out of any combination of the seven visible cards.

Omaha

Same as Hold’Em, except you have an initial four-card hand. You need to make the best five-card hand using two cards from your hand, and three community cards.

You can read our dedicated page for playing Texas Hold’Em online, which includes strategies and rule variations like Omaha.

Poker Tournaments

There are two separate weekly freeroll tournaments, one for Hold’Em, and one for Omaha. They payout $1,600 to the top 30 players every Wednesday. It was a lot of fun for me as an experienced player and a great opportunity for newbies who don’t want to put money down.

There are also frequent buy-in tournaments that payout to the top 14 or top 30 players, depending on the tournament. Buy-ins range from $14-300, so this is not for rookies.

Finally, there are standalone games, with buy-ins as low as $0.75.

All-in-all I thought these were good options catering to a range of budgetary and skill levels, although I would have liked to see more of the lower buy-in tournaments.

Mobile Gaming at BetNow

BetNow Mobile Screenshot 1

BetNow functions through a mobile web browser, rather than a downloadable app, as with most other modern online betting sites.

The BetNow site is broadly functional, but unfortunately, the app feels outdated next to some competitors such as BetOnline. I found the sportsbook and racebook required a lot of scrolling and felt slightly awkward – with the bet slip not functioning as well.

The casino offering works better thanks to its more modern tile selection, and full access to the games.

I could do everything I wanted to do on BetNow via mobile, but I would say it is an area for improvement to bring it in line with competitors.

BetNow Bonuses and Promotions

When it comes to real money bonuses and promotions at the BetNow sportsbook and online casino, I was glad to see generous welcome bonuses and some great reload deals for regular bettors at the site. There are also a ton of fun, competitive contests that span the course of the entire calendar year to provide additional opportunities.

The welcome bonus can be used in both the casino and sportsbook. The other bonuses are geared towards the sportsbook with lower rollover requirements than for the casino.

The bonuses are not massive, but I liked that they provide flexibility depending on your budgetary requirements, with lower rollovers than many competitors.

Welcome Bonuses

BetNow’s welcome bonuses can be used at both their sportsbook and casino. The welcome bonus is great in providing flexibility. All welcome bonuses can be claimed with a $20 minimum deposit, making it a great option for casual players. You get three different options to suit your needs:

150% up to $150, with a 12x rollover.

If you deposit a minimum of $20, you can claim 150% up to $150. This comes with a 12x rollover. To claim your 150% bonus, select BN150 when you process your initial deposit.

100% up to $500, with a 20x rollover

With a $20 minimum deposit, you can also choose to receive 100% up to $1,000. This bonus comes with a 20x rollover, so is geared toward more committed players. To claim this 100% bonus, select BN100 when depositing.

50% up to $500, with a 10x rollover.

Alternatively, you may prefer to claim 50% up to $500, but with a lower rollover requirement of 10x. To claim this deposit, select BN50 when you process your deposit.

The requirements are 3x rollover if using the sportsbook, or 15x if using the casino.

15% up to $500, with a 3x sportsbook rollover, 15x casino rollover (REUP15)

OR

20% up to $500, with a 4x sportsbook rollover, 20x casino rollover (REUP20)

Alternatively, you can choose to receive no bonus, with no rollover requirements.

Other Promotions at BetNow

Rebate Bonus

If you’re a casino player, you’re going to love this bonus at BetNow. If you have a rough week of gambling, the casino will automatically give you 10% of your losses back as a bonus rebate! There are no posted limits on how often you can cash in on this, which means it’s available every week.

The same 10% rebate offer goes out to anyone looking to bet on horse races. Hopefully, you won’t need these BetNow bonuses. But if you do go on a bad run, it’s nice to know you’re going to get some of that back into your account at the end of the week.

Rebates are given every Monday by 12pm (ET).

Seasonal Promotions

What makes BetNow stand out as one of the top sportsbooks online are their seasonal promotions and giveaways ranging from $500,000 up to $1,000,000! They have contests going on all year round, especially during big sports events and major holidays.

BetNow’s Loyalty Program

BetNow’s Lifetime VIP program gives you an incentive to deposit more over time. The more you deposit, the more you receive on future deposits:

  • Deposit $500 and earn 10% VIP status
  • Deposit $2,000 and earn 15% VIP status

You also receive loyalty points for wagers places in the sportsbook and casino. Various activities will earn you points which can later be redeemed for cash. It pays to be a VIP.

Banking Options

BetNow offers a good range of traditional, e-wallet and crypto methods for both deposits and withdrawals. As with most betting sites, there are generally more fees and longer waiting times associated with withdrawing via traditional methods than with crypto.

My experience of the withdrawal process was very good, with attentive customer support always on hand to help with any issues.

Aside from being faster and cheaper, crypto also has higher withdrawal limits. That said, there are no special crypto bonuses, unlike some competitors such as Bovada.

  • Scroll back to the top of the page and pick out the bonus you want to take advantage of.

  • Use the links on this page to navigate over to the BetNow platform.

BetNow Customer Support

The BetNow customer support is exceptional. Their live chat operators responded to all my queries within minutes, at all times of the day, and in detail. When certain agents were not able to answer, I was put straight through to someone who could.

Not only that, but user reviews state that BetNow customer support actively follows up on negative feedback to fix any issues.

I also tested phone support and was able to contact someone within minutes. Additionally, there is email access. For me the BetNow Live Chat is the gold standard for online betting sites.

Final Verdict

BetNow is a great sportsbook option, with the racebook, virtual blackjack and poker titles also nice additions. As an NFL fan, I especially loved the weekly and season-long competitions. The BetNow poker room is also worth a visit, particularly for the freeroll tournaments. But if you´re a dedicated poker player I suggest looking for an in-house poker room elsewhere.

It is also clear that the website and app, although functional, need some TLC. The welcome bonus is well suited to lower-deposit players, and I liked the flexibility of choice within it.

I would recommend BetNow mainly for sports fans and virtual card players.

In order to take advantage of the welcome deposit bonuses at BetNow, you will have to use the deposit code. If you just made a deposit and didn’t use a BetNow promo code, you can try contacting customer support immediately to see if they’d be willing to credit your account with the appropriate bonus. For the other promotions at BetNow, you’re not going to need a bonus code, as they don’t revolve around deposits. What we recommend with these promotions is to take the time to read through the terms of service to see what you’re required to do. In some instances, you may have to reach out to customer support to activate your offer by opting in.

Yes! In fact, most of the bonuses at BetNow are targeted towards the sportsbook. It’s clear the primary focus of BetNow is sports betting, with casino and racebook operations being second.

The playthrough (rollover) requirement on the BetNow promo codes ranges from 5x to 10x. Depending on which bonus you choose, you’ll have a different playthrough requirement. When you stack these numbers up against the rest of the online sports betting industry, they’re considerably lower, which is great news. In fact, we can’t think of one other casino that has a 5x rollover requirement on any bonus at all.

You can use several of these sportsbook-focused BetNow promo codes at the casino if you’d like. The playthrough requirement is the same, however each dollar you wager only accounts for $0.20 of that requirement. So, in reality, the playthrough requirement is higher on casino games, which is to be expected. BetNow does run a casino rebate promotion, which can get you 10% of your losses throughout the week. Ideally, it’s a bonus you hope to never get (because you’re winning). However, if you do happen to lose, it’s nice to get a little of that back.
