BetOnline Mobile Sports Betting App Review – Lifetime Bonus
BetOnline (BOL) is a heavyweight in the online sports betting industry, especially among Americans. However, as you’ll learn in our BetOnline Sportsbook review – the company caters to bettors around the world too.
The company first started taking bets online under the BestLineSports (BLS) brand in 2001. The company quickly grew and in 2006 they purchased the BetOnline brand, which has proven to be a great investment. To this day, BOL is still operating in Panama City, Panama, which allows them to operate smoothly in all major markets.
While the marketing focus is on bringing in new US bettors to the sportsbook – I want to explain why everyone should have a funded BOL account in this review. There are multiple reasons why you should have a BetOnline account.

Bonuses and promotions at BetOnline
Prepare to be amazed. BOL offers some of the best sports betting promotions I’ve ever seen. To start – players can claim a 50% first deposit bonus for up to $2500. The minimum deposit to claim the bonus is $50, there is a 10x rollover and no withdrawals can be executed for 30 days after claiming this offer. Use bonus code “NEW2500”.
Have you heard of the BetOnline lifetime bonus guarantee? That’s right – bettors will earn a 25% reload bonus on every single deposit for up to $1000. The rules are similar – there’s a 6x rollover, $50 minimum deposit requirement and you must use up previous free plays before claiming a new one. Use bonus code “LIFEBONUS”.
What about promotions? Well, there are plenty. BetOnline offers a risk-free $25 bet to try out live betting, risk-free $25 bet to place your first bet in the racebook and up to 7% track rebates for horse racing. BOL will also match your first mobile bet for up to $50 if it loses. Bet $50 on your first mobile bet and if it loses, you’ll be credited with a free play.
Player review and impressions
Sports to Bet On: Baseball, Basketball, Football, Hockey, Soccer, Tennis, Auto Racing, Cricket, Boxing, Darts, Golf, eSports, Futsal, Lacrosse, MMA, Rugby, Pool, Snooker, Softball, Cycling, Olympics and Politics
Betting Markets: Money Line, Point Spread, Over/Under, Parlay, Teaser, Special Teaser, Futures, Props, If Win, If Win-Tie-Cancel, Reverses and Buying Points
Betting Limits: $500 – $25,000 maximum depending upon market
The biggest betting limits at BetOnline are for major US sports, such as the NFL, NBA and MLB. Bettors can wager up to $25,000 on NFL point spread bets and $10,000 on MLB money lines. All limits are listed at BOL.
BetOnline doesn’t offer reduced juice like 5Dimes, but BOL often opens up the markets. This means they’re the first bookie to release opening lines and these can be taken advantage of. Some of the opening lines at BOL are so poor – experienced handicappers have a field day betting into them. However, opening lines have smaller betting limits.
The standard juice at BOL is $.20 (-110/-110). The vig increases for some markets, such as team total points, props, futures, etc.. However, the large betting limits are hard to find in the industry and one of the big selling points.
Another reason a lot of casual bettors love BOL is because they aren’t afraid to post markets other bookies won’t. I love the huge props/futures selection. You can bet on the NFL/NBA drafts, player performance and much more. They also offer regular season win totals for every team for major US sports. BOL has the best betting selection for Americans.
The international betting markets aren’t nearly as expansive. You can bet on sports like rugby, cricket and darts, but often only on the match winner. There are no alternative markets for the majority of international sports.

BetOnline Casino review
BOL doesn’t just excel at sports betting. The online casino is powered by Betsoft and there are hundreds of games to enjoy, including slots, video poker, roulette, blackjack, baccarat, craps, progressive jackpots and more. I’m a huge fan of the twenty-two 3D slots in the casino, which includes The SlotFather, Mr. Vegas and Whospunit Plus.
What would an online casino be without live dealer games? BetOnline Casino offers live dealer blackjack, roulette, baccarat and super6. We also have some great news. The live dealer casino games will be mobile compatible soon.
There are multiple bonuses too. Want to play slots? Claim the 100% for up to $1000 slots bonus on every deposit. You must deposit $100 and there’s a 50x rollover (D+B).
Don’t play slots? There’s also a lifetime 25% reload bonus for up to $3000 on every casino deposit. The rollover is 50x (D+B), the minimum deposit is $25 and you need to use the bonus code “CASINO25”. Players can also try out the live dealer casino with a $25 risk-free bet and if you’re a high-roller there are huge monthly rewards to earn.
There’s also a rebate program on casino play. If you lose $100 in a week, you can contact [email protected] and they’ll credit your account with 10% cashback on your weekly losses. This type of offer is unheard of.
BetOnline Poker review
BetOnline launched a poker room in 2011 and it has become a big part of the BOL network. BetOnline Poker is using software developed by Connective Games (CG) and the RNG is tested regularly by Gaming Laboratories Industries.
You can enjoy active cash games or regular ongoing poker tournaments, including daily freerolls. Texas Holdem and Omaha are the two most popular poker games spread here, but there are other games available too. BOL Poker may not have the same number of features as some of the big poker rooms, but they have a competitive offering.
The poker software needs to be downloaded to your Windows or Mac computer. Unfortunately, the poker room isn’t mobile-friendly, but Americans have a tough enough time finding PC poker rooms, so it isn’t a huge deal.
There are too many promotions to list here, but we’ll discuss the sign-up bonus to get you started. There’s a 100% deposit bonus for poker players (Minimum Deposit $50 / Maximum Deposit $2500). The bonus will be credited to your account in $5 increments every time you earn 1500 comp points.
To claim the poker bonus you need to contact [email protected] with the bonus code “NEWBOL” as the subject line.
Email: [email protected] (General Support)
The BetOnline support team is available 24/7 – they never take a break — even on holidays. I wish they offered live chat, but most live chat support is useless anyways with cookie-cutter answers to questions. When you need help, contact BOL and they’ll gladly assist you and make sure any problems/questions have been resolved.
