BetNow is an online sportsbook that is relatively new to the sports betting industry. They are dedicated to serving players within the United States and various other locations around the world. BetNow offers its clients the ability to utilize a very nice online sportsbook, an online casino, and a horse racing book.
BetNow allows their clientele to wager on all of the normal sports and offers a nice variety of prop plays for each sport. We find it all too often that newer companies fail to provide prop plays but that is not the case with BetNow. They give out very competitive odds and lines and give the bettor an overall pleasurable betting experience.

History & Background
BetNow is based out of Curacao and is licensed to conduct business in Curacao. They started their operation in 2015 and since they went live, the reviews coming back are pretty positive, including ours.
There are numerous bonuses that are available at BetNow. First and foremost the Bitcoin Bonus is one of the best in the industry. They will offer their new clients a 150% Match Bonus of up to $300 or 25% up to $500 simply by using the codes BN100 or BN25 respectively. We are very happy with that bonus as most other online sportsbooks will not come close to matching that offer.
For any new clients that sign up for new accounts, they will offer a 100% welcome bonus. They do have some requirements for this bonus, but they are no different than any other online sportsbook. They require a $50 minimum deposit with a maximum of $500. There is a 15x rollover for the sportsbook and 20x in the casino.
One of the nice things that BetNow does for their Casino and Horse Racing players offers a rebate on losses. Casino players will be offered a 10% rebate on their weekly casino losses. For horse racing players, they will offer you a 5% rebate on your weekly horse racing losses. The horse racing rebate is a tad bit lower than some other online sportsbooks but is still respectable and acceptable.
BetNow will allow you to pick from several options to make a deposit or make a withdrawal. Their top option for making a deposit and preferred option is Bitcoin. As we stated earlier, they will actually give you a bonus on your first Bitcoin deposit and their minimums are very low. They do not charge a fee to use Bitcoin to make a deposit and the funds will be in your account the same day.
You can also make a deposit via most major credit cards including Visa and Mastercard. For those that do not have credit cards but would still like to use a credit card to make a deposit, you do have the option of using a prepaid credit card.
For those who are still using Western Union and MoneyGram, they will allow you to make a deposit using either but there is a $50 minimum for both options. There is a $5,000 max transaction amount for every Western Union or MoneyGram.
If you are lucky enough to earn enough money to withdraw money, BetNow will offer a few options to get your money. First and foremost is via Bitcoin. Bitcoin can be pulled out without any fees and a maximum of $5000 per transaction for a limit of $40,000 per month.
You can also make withdrawals by using MoneyGram, Bank Draft, and Bank Wire. It would be nice to see them add some options such as Credit Card, Neteller, Skrill, and some other E-Wallets. That being said they are still a rather young company and they do provide a nice array of options even without those other options.
One of the most ironic things that I have found with BetNow is I have not seen a single complaint on any of the major sites with complaint forums. This may be due to the fact that they have only been in operation for a short time but overall, this is a very good sign.
BetNow has only been around for a short amount of time so it is really hard to determine the long-term customer service strengths and weaknesses. That being said, from what we have experienced and what we have read online, they are really going in the right direction.
BetNow Customer Service agents are available 24 hours a day/7 days a week. They have multiple sources to contact their customer service including phone and email. To contact them by phone, call them toll-free at 1-844-823-8669 or you can contact them by email at [email protected].
Cons: Areas of improvement
- Unsophisticated betting features
Overall, BetNow is becoming a very nice website to bet on. They accept US bettors and have (so far) a reputable albeit short track record in terms of payouts and customer service. Our experiences have been uneventful in a good way so we can recommend them as an overall online betting source but due to their length of time in business, we remind you to be cautious and not to deposit huge amounts starting off until you have consistent experiences in withdrawing your winnings.
