MyBookie Sportsbook Review
Since the site’s launch in August of 2014, the Costa Rica-based MyBookie.ag has quickly established itself as a major player within the online sportsbook space.
Under a license issued by the Curacao e-Gaming Licensing Authority, MyBookie operates as a worldwide sports betting platform – with only China, Russia, and France on the restricted list.
That means players in the U.S. are welcome to register, making MyBookie one of the few remaining licensed operators serving American customers.
And along with a full-fledged online casino offshoot, powered by the Betsoft software engine no less, MyBookie is also making headway into the wider iGaming industry.
To get the ball rolling, MyBookie offers sports bettors a generous Welcome Bonus package which grants a 50% match up to $3,000 on first deposits.
As for the playthrough wagering requirements, the site uses a sliding scale based on your bonus amount. When you collect $45-$300 the playthrough stands at 5x, before escalating to 7x for $301-$500; 10x for $501-$1,000; 15x for $1,001-$2,000; and 20x for $2,001-$3,000.
Whenever you need to reload, you can earn a 25% match bonus up to $500.
And if you’re heading to the casino section, look for a 100% match bonus on first deposits up to $1,000.
Players can also score $25 free bets, along with a running menu of assorted promotions to reward regulars.
After signing up for an account, you’ll want to load it with a bankroll and begin betting, so take advantage of the following deposit methods: Visa, MasterCard, bank transfer, person-to-person money transfer, cashier’s check, or Bitcoin
You’ll notice that MyBookie doesn’t offer virtual wallets like Neteller or Skrill, so traditional banking options are the way to go.
For card-based transactions, minimums and maximums are set at $45/$1,000, while Bitcoin is more flexible at $25/$10,000.
When your picks have come in and it’s time to withdraw winnings, the following methods are available: bank transfer, MoneyGram, eCheck, and Bitcoin.
All withdrawals take one week’s time, and the minimum is $100 for all methods but Bitcoin ($50), with variable maximum limits and fees (see the MyBookie “Cashier” page).
Bettors love the MyBookie platform because if a game, match, or tournament is being held anywhere in the world, this site is sure to be taking action.
Naturally, all of the major professional leagues in North America and Europe are covered, so you’ll never miss an NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, UEFA, or Premier League contest. And if you prefer international intrigue, MyBookie runs the gamut from the Mexican Pacific baseball league to PLK basketball in Poland.
Second-tier sports like mixed martial arts, horse racing, tennis, motorsports, eSports, and many more are also on tap, along with specialty wagers on political races, entertainment award shows, and even “Pope Specials.”
And when halftime hits, check out MyBookie’s casino platform, featuring the usual lineup of beautifully designed Betsoft slots, table games, and video poker offerings.
Overall, the MyBookie platform has established itself as a reputable and reliable online sportsbook relatively quickly, which is easier said than done. The site’s interface is intuitive and easy to use, and recreational players are treated like royalty, which is the right way to go for a new site. American players are especially well-served by the development of a respected U.S.-facing operation like MyBookie.
