Best Sports Betting Sites

At Bookies.com, we review and recommend only the top online sports betting sites that are licensed and legal. That makes for the absolute best betting experience. These are trusted operators with a long history of offering a huge selection of betting markets and first-rate customer service with integrity while maintaining your security.

Why Do We Only Promote Legal Online Sportsbooks?

Legal Online Sportsbooks
Offshore Sportsbooks

Location

Legal: Legal online sportsbooks always have an official, registered address within the state they operate and will display licensing detail and information that allows the user to access terms and conditions and rules alongside regulatory partners.

Offshore: Offshore Bookies are located outside the US, but most commonly at Curacao, Antigua and Barbuda (Countries in the Caribbean Islands), Costa Rica and Panama (Central America) and Kahnawake (tribal reserve inside Canada). They will be vague in providing consumer support and regulatory details.

Licensing Authorities

Legal: Regulatory Authorities in America establish fairness between consumers and sportsbooks. They provide a legal framework for all licensed operators to adhere to and ensure consumer support and fair play.

Offshore: There are no US regulators, therefore no guarantee that consumer’s rights will be respected and no option to challenge or raise disputes over poor practice.

Deposit Methods

Legal: Mainstream deposit methods, such as Play+, PayPal, bank transfers via ACH, Visa, Mastercard and PayNearMe, among others. Deposits tend to be quick but can vary depending on type of transaction.

Offshore: Dodgy or unregulated deposit methods, like unstable Cryptocurrency, money transfers and voucher systems. The deposit can fail or not be processed at the desired time.

Payment Processing

Legal: Agile and assured time frames and limits detailed in the sportsbook’s terms and policies will be visible, detailed and accessible from recognized and regulated payment providers.

Offshore: Differing standards across timings, limits, and accessibility, unsafe practices and frequent changing of payment providers.

Security

Legal: Built-in consumer protection, customer service options, data protection and regulated security provisions as standard.

Offshore: No access to dispute resolution, lack of customer service and contact options. No guaranteed security over online balances and access to funds in the event of a business or commercial failure.

Bonuses and Promotions

Legal: Clear and transparent competitive and fair bonuses provided under detailed and transparent terms and conditions policies.

Offshore: Voiding, too-good-to-be-true bonuses, with often hidden extra processing fees and no option for dispute or customer service assistance.
