MySportsbook is part of the world's largest internet gaming company, SportingBet U.K. Purely dedicated to sports wagering, MySportsbook offers customers multiple betting options as well as a wide variety of sports to choose from. The site is aimed at both European and U.S. markets and subsequently offers many European sports such as cricket, rugby and European leagues as well as American favorites.
Although MySportsbook also offers online casino betting, the site’s primary focus remains on sports. The events and leagues offered are prominently listed on the front page, as are the various promotions and offers. The MySportsbook site is easy to navigate, with hierarchical tabs encompassing major informational sections located across the top of the web page. The site seems to be targeting a hipper, younger crowd than most other sportbooks, as is evident by the design, promotions and ad content across the front page.
Becoming a member of MySportsbook is quite simple. After filling in a sign up form, customers are either able to demo the system or play for real. The demo option allows clients to get comfortable with the wagering system before placing a bet. Once they have signed up for membership, customers have access to both the sports wagering section of the site, as well as the online casino. The site’s excellent design extends to the information column located to the left of the sign up form, which gives customers further details on how to join, why to join and explains once again the various promotions.
MySportsbook has an entire section called Cashier dedicated to instructing customers on deposit and withdrawal methods. Not only are the instructions clear, but they are extensive. Instead of merely listing all the various methods of deposit and withdrawal, this section includes short paragraphs explaining the time each method will typically take, as well the various promotions offered for each method. Although MySportsbook offers the option of making deposits and wagers over the phone, the online deposit methods seem to be fastest and most simple. Unless clients have an active credit card and account, wire transfers, personal checks and money orders must be accompanied with a photocopy of a valid form of identification. This could include a driver's license, passport or any other government-issued document that contains a picture of the account holder. Once a deposit is made, the customer must purchase V-chips before placing a bet.
Withdrawals are a slightly more complicated process. Customers are free to withdraw their funds at anytime, but before withdrawing any money, customers have to first sell their V-Chips. Moreover, after clients have cashed out up to the sum they initially deposited, any additional winnings have to be withdrawn via check. There is a $10 minimum for each withdrawal.
MySportsbook offers a wide choice of betting limits and types, and, being backed by SportingBet U.K., the site’s overall quality and credibility are rock-solid. With good design and an intuitive interface, the site is easy on the eye and an excellent option for both European and U.S. markets.
