Aggressive Bonuses, Solid license in Panama, Long history in online gaming.
Flamboyant marketing, remediating past troubles

BetOnline.com was never a household name, despite its excellent and brandable domain, until BestLineSports acquired it.

After moving to Panama and merging the BestLineSports operation behind the BetOnline.com name, good things started to happen.

Relatively free of customer issues and complaints in the various online sportsbook forums that dot the web, BetOnline.com has been growing in stature and player base. Some key marketing spends has raised its profile among the top online sportsbooks and they have responded with solid customer service and an improved product.

While BestLine focused on lower commissions (less than the standard -110 juice), BetOnline.com is comfortable staying the course in this area, typically keeping NFL lines at -110.

Recreational bettors have responded favorably and professional players have also expressed their satisfaction with the treatment – and odds – they receive here.

Promoting themselves as the sportsbook with the ‘World’s Highest Parlay Odds,’ BetOnline.com has attracted interest among those who like betting longshots and those who play Canadian-government-run sports lotteries. A similar sports wagering feature – possibly with single game wagering as well – will show up in Delaware in 2009.

A solid but responsible bonus program, a loyalty program where customers can earn free bets and a robust stats content feed (along with the Betting Edge news and tutorial section) make the new Betonline.com a good place for new bettors.

They also showed their creativity and marketing savvy in May 2009 by claiming a world record for the highest recorded wager.  A Mount Everest expedition from the online sportsbook placed a wager by satellite phone 26,000 feet above sea level (that’s about five miles).

The bet (the Lakers to cover against Houston) was a winner. And BetOnline.com is following suit to become a winner among the web’s best sportsbooks.
