MyBookie Review & Bonus Code 2020
MyBookie Promo Code
MyBookie’s online sportsbook has been around since 2014 and it’s gone on to offer sports and casino gaming through its gambling licence from Curacao in the Netherlands Antilles’.
One thing to address in our MyBookie reviews is whether we can consider MyBookie legit, safe, and trustworthy for your betting. This is a company that’s long been dogged by issues over its founders and the initial setup – with alleged ties to the now-defunct site BetOnSports, who went out of business with money troubles, a terrible reputation, arrested founders, and players losing millions. MyBookie has downplayed these historical links, but it’s a betting site with problems all of its own – something these MyBookie reviews will go into later.
In our MyBookie reviews, we’ll dig deep into this betting site, take a detailed look at what they do and how they do it, and give you our unbiased set of MyBookie reviews – the good, the bad, the whole nine yards. We’ll look at their sports offer, what their bonuses are like, whether you’ll need MyBookie bonus codes or a MyBookie promo code, how good their customer services are, their payment methods, and so much more – all you need to do is read on for the full MyBookie reviews!
MyBookie: Pros & Cons
- Reasonable bonuses across sports – with a great low rollover smaller bonus
- Well-designed modern looking site with intuitive layout
- Good US-facing sportsbook
- Not enough licensing information
- Issues with reliability and payment issues
For its welcome bonuses, our MyBookie reviews rating is good, with the site offering a 50% sports first deposit match up to $1,000, 10% first deposit match up to $200 for those wanting a smaller bonus with lower rollover, and 150% first Casino deposit match up to $750 – with them all needing MyBookie bonus codes or MyBookie promo code.
The sports welcome matches half your first deposit, credited as free play, up to a maximum of $1,000, with minimum $45 deposit and a reasonable 10x rollover. You’ll need to use the MyBookie promo code MYB50 here. But be warned, when you do use those MyBookie bonus codes or MyBookie promo code to get your free plays, you’re limited to maximum odds of 200/1 with a maximum win amount of $500 on one single team. So don’t be expecting those MyBookie bonus codes to pay huge.
If you want a smaller bonus with excellent wagering requirements, MyBookie’s sign-up cash bonus, using MyBookie promo code 200CASH, is for you – 10% of first deposit credited to your account up to a maximum of $200, with minimum $45 deposit, but just a 1x rollover attached.
Finally, the Casino welcome bonus is a 150% first deposit match, a maximum bonus of $750 from a $45 minimum deposit. There’s 40x rollover attached and you use the MyBookie promo code MYB150. Once you’ve used the MyBookie bonus codes, this casino bonus expires 2 weeks after it’s credited – making it the least useful in our opinion.
Overall, the bonus offers here work well for us in the MyBookie reviews. And extra bonuses, once you’ve used the new customer deals, include a 25% sports reload up to $500, 8% horse rebate, 250% referral bonus, and plenty of extra casino bonuses – check out the t&cs for details and any MyBookie bonus codes or MyBookie promo code needed.
MyBookie’s look is clean and modern, black text on a stark white background looks good and sharp. On the more graphic-based casino pages, things look excellent, lots of space, everything laid out well for a good, intuitive experience. But on the sportsbook pages, things aren’t as good, with too much going on, a cramped feel, too much text. It’s a good looking site for sure, but the sportsbook should have taken a few design cues from the casino section. However, with that one bad aspect of a cluttered sportsbook aside, the actual site is very well laid out with an intuitive design that’s well-executed.
There’s, unfortunately, no dedicated mobile app with MyBookie, but the mobile site is pretty good as well.
Now, the really serious issue with payments we saw again and again in our MyBookie reviews research is one of multiple reports of missed payments, huge delays to withdrawals, customer services being reported as profoundly unhelpful, and even players being limited or banned when complaining. It all makes us wary of MyBookie.
MyBookie’s payment options are limited, with the site doing everything it can to push players towards cryptocurrency payments – presumably to counter the risk of US financial institutions that may crackdown on deposits and withdrawals to/from offshore betting sites.
Once you’ve signed up and entered the MyBookie bonus codes for your bonuses, deposits are allowed from Visa, MasterCard, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Moneygram. Cards must accept international transactions and there’s a big 5% card fee involved.
We also didn’t like the limits on depositing, with a maximum $2,500 card deposit per deposit, but just two daily and three weekly deposits allowed. Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin have $20 minimum with no maximum. Moneygram has $100 minimum, $500 maximum.
For withdrawals, crypto takes two business days and has no fee. E-Check withdrawals take 7-10 business days, fees $5-$40. Bank wire takes 5-7 business days and costs $75-$160. Only one withdrawal is allowed per method and per calendar week. To make things worse, the minimum cash out is $100 (Bitcoin $25) and you have to roll your deposit over 1x before you can cash out. And finally, MyBookie only processes withdrawals during banking hours – Mon through Friday.
On the face of it, the customer service we found in our MyBookie reviews is all we could ask for – 24/7 live chat, toll-free phone and messaging service. When we tested the service, all was fine, with quick replies and informed representatives. As for their help pages, they’ve got that right as well, with well-organised pages covering plenty of subjects.
But we’re fortunate it seems, in that we haven’t had any problems with payment processing or claiming large wins. Because we’ve seen reports, in researching these MyBookie reviews, of the customer service here causing lots of troubles for players with difficulties getting a withdrawal or querying payments and we’d be failing you if we didn’t call attention to the large numbers of complaints against this site.
When it comes to licencing at MyBookie, we found very little information. They say that they are ‘controlled, operated and administered entirely within Netherlands Antilles’, that use of the site is ‘governed by Netherlands Antillean law’, and that they are ‘legally licensed by the Government & Laws of Curacao in the Netherlands Antilles.’
However, a Curacao license is nowhere near the level of the licencing and regulatory body of something such as the UK Gambling Commission. There are also questions regarding MyBookie being an offshore site that accepts US players. It’s not subject to US laws covering betting sites so unlike US-based casinos there’s no state licence required. Hence the MyBookie.ag domain name, as US authorities have been actively pursuing betting sites used by US players with the .com domain – it’s why you see other US-focused bookmakers, some of them blacklisted by us – such as those seen in our Betonline review, Intertops review, and gtbets review, who use the .ag or the .eu domain rather than the .com domain.
All of that throws up issues of just how you hold this operator to task when things go wrong – something plenty of people have reported in various complaints against MyBookie.
We feel this just adds to our decision to blacklist MyBookie, along with sites found in our 10bet review, Betclic review, or the likes of Bodog and Bovada – the difficulties of licensing can bring players trouble. For example, look at another previously blacklisted bookie, Bethard – and see our Bethard review – they’re exiting the UK market because regulations are too tight – and there’s no certainty of what will happen to UK players looking to withdraw their funds after the company’s exit – it all goes to show that licensing matters.
MyBookie runs the My Free Bet Rewards Program that’s very simple; place a $5+ sports bet, collect a star, get 10 stars for a free bet. The free bet you get will be 10% of the average value of the 10 wagers placed. It’s very simple, and not the worst rewards scheme we’ve ever seen.
There’s also the Bookie Points Rewards Program to opt into, where you earn points for sportsbook bets of $10+. You get 1 point for a straight bet, with $10 free play redeemable for 110 points, $50 free play for 550 points.
MyBookie Sports Betting
MyBookie’s sportsbook is obviously geared towards the North American market but that doesn’t stop it from looking globally and offering a pretty wide and deep selection of sports events.
Even though it’s an offshore sportsbook, that doesn’t stop MyBookie gearing much of its betting markets towards North America, going big on NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL. But they also cover such as the WNBA, NCAA Basketball, NCAA Football, and CFL (Canadian Football League). Additionally, they also offer an extensive selection of sports across the world – Golf, MMA, Soccer, Motor Sports, Boxing, Table Tennis and more, including minority sports such as Wrestling, Darts, Snooker and the like. You’ll also find sections for Politics, Religion, Special Wagers, and Esports here, although their Esports coverage is rather slight.
You’ll also find their horse racing under its own section of the site, primarily US tracks, including a few greyhound tracks, but also featuring some racing from Australia, UK, Ireland, South Africa, and France.
In terms of betting markets, it’s got all you’d expect with straight bets, parlays, teasers, buying and selling points, if bets and action wagers, moneylines, spreads, over/unders, 3-ways and plenty of proposition betting on offer. But what MyBookie doesn’t really have is anything exceptional to do with its odds. Essentially, what you’ll get is pretty average, with the odds more geared towards the recreational player rather than long-term bettors.
However, we have seen some reports of MyBookie being too quick at times to move the lines and switch players using dual odds pricing, similar to that seen with other US-facing bookies you can see in the Bodog review, Bovada review, and 5Dimes review. It’s not what you could call MyBookie scams, it’s a common thing in the US bookie market, but it’s the speed that MyBookie switch players doing well to sharp lines that concerns us here with the MyBookie reviews sportsbook section.
Live Betting & Streaming
Live betting at MyBookie really isn’t as good as we wanted to see. We’re used to looking at live betting markets where you have the chance to follow all the live sporting action, play by play, minute by minute, complete with live match stats, live-updating diagrams and infographics, even live streaming. The only things MyBookie gave us at the time of doing this MyBookie reviews section were the live betting lines. And there’s no evidence of any live streaming at MyBookie either.
The only bet limits information we could find with MyBookie was that the maximum payout for any parlay is $100,000 and the maximum combined daily winnings is just $100,000. However, if you’re looking to use free plays from your MyBookie bonus codes for your sports bonuses – things get a lot tighter – free plays can get you a maximum win amount of $500 on one single team. And crucially, in the t&cs, MyBookie reserves the right to limit the maximum risk and bets – something we’ve read they do a little too often, up to and including invalidating winners.
When we were looking at the sportsbook in putting together the MyBookie reviews, we found it to be a fairly good sportsbook, although far too cluttered. It’s strong on US sports, particularly the big four, and covers the major and minor leagues, college sports, and more.
We also quite like the MyBookie bonus codes for the sports bonuses offered, both the 50% first deposit match up to $1,000, with 10x rollover and MyBookie promo code MYB50, and the smaller sign-up cash bonus, using MyBookie promo code 200CASH with 10% of first deposit credited to your account to a maximum $200. But remember, when you use MyBookie bonus codes or MyBookie promo code to get your free plays, you’re limited to maximum odds of 200/1 with a maximum win amount of $500 on one single team – a little tight!
However, we found far too many reports of players claiming poor treatment from the bookmaker – not receiving winnings, withdrawal delays, bonus policies that caused difficulty, and odds being changed on bets – all of which causes us concern.
The MyBookie casino looks great, but in terms of what it actually offers, it’s pretty much as standard across so many other betting sites. Additionally, there’s no dedicated poker section here, so if you’re a serious poker player, this really isn’t for you.
The games at MyBookie are provided, in part, by Betsoft and Concept Gaming, along with MyBookie’s own proprietary games. Great looking games for sure, but there was an issue with Betsoft, allegedly, failing to pay out a progressive jackpot winner. It’s not a decider for blacklisting a site by any means, just another small piece of the case for blacklisting MyBookie.
With slots, MyBookie seriously underperforms. 130+ slots and 19 jackpot slots is tiny compared to what you’d find at a lot of other casino sites.
In terms of numbers of table games, things are better, with the usual suspects all having multiple variants available – Blackjack (17 variants), Poker (6 variants of table poker & 27 video poker games), Roulette (6 variants), Baccarat (2), Craps (2), along with 3-Card Rummy, Keno. And the games themselves have a nice range of visuals with good designs.
You can use the Casino welcome bonus here of course, which is a 150% first deposit match with a maximum of $750 from a $45 minimum deposit using MyBookie promo code MYB150. But that’s got a 40x rollover and just 2 weeks to use the bonus.
In addition, MyBookie offers you a whole host of extra bonuses, including weekday reload bonus of 300% up to $1,500 with MyBookie promo code WEEKDAY and a weekend bonus of 250% up to $2,000 with the MyBookie promo code MB250WEEKEND. There’s also free spin Wednesdays, giving 50 free spins, maximum pay-out $300 using MyBookie promo code MBSPINS. And then there’s the Friday pick’em bonus, either 25 free spins or 150% casino reload bonus to $1,000, with MyBookie bonus codes SPINFRIDAYMB or RELOADFRIDAYMB.
Whilst the video table games really aren’t that good, our MyBookie reviews found the live dealer tables at MyBookie are considerably better. 12 live dealer rooms are available; Blackjack (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum tables), Early Pay-out Blackjack, Baccarat, American and European Roulette, and Super 6 – all with differing table limits. We found good connections and clear video streams to the live dealer tables.
Maximum pay-outs at MyBookie’s casino are just $2,000. When it comes to table limits on the live dealer games, it’s pretty standard, with table limits between $0.50-$100 minimum and $500-$5,000 maximum.
MyBookie’s casino offer is pretty standard really – not that many slots on offer, table games look nice but are pretty standard, and the live dealer games are pretty good. The casino welcome bonus, requiring the MyBookie bonus codes, has that restrictive 40x rollover, but at least you can find plenty of other casino bonuses on offer, but remember to check the t&cs and what MyBookie bonus codes you need. What concerns us is those reports we’ve seen of players being limited or banned, slow withdrawal payments, and refusal to pay casino wins.
MyBookie is another one of those bookmakers that do just fine. Their sportsbook is good for US sports, their casino is fair and as for bonuses, we’d say get those MyBookie bonus codes and look at the sports bonuses, as the casino bonus is too restrictive.
But the big problem here isn’t those small issues over MyBookie, it’s that there are limited payment methods with far too many restrictions and fees, poor licensing in place, a swiftness to limit players, changing players odds lines in the sportsbook, and that all builds to mean that we really have to consider MyBookie as a blacklisted betting site for the time being.
