Publisher’s Note: Published for a friend who left Bovada for various reasons and opened an account with MyBookie a couple years ago. I bare no liability for this clown’s opinion.
A Review Based on Experience
Thank you to my friend with a blog nobody reads and the opportunity to share my personal experience with MyBookie over the past two years. First, I have been paid Sports Book winnings every time I’ve requested MyBookie to pay me some winnings.
And, right off the bat, I want to say, in my opinion, sports book rating should raise their grade. I’ve had zero problems with MyBookie in two years of recreational sports gambling. Their odds seem fair and seem to match consensus lines, the live betting feature is unmatched in my opinion, and I’ve been paid my winnings every single time. In my opinion, if you, as a person researching online sports books, are not conducting business with your sports book in Bitcoin, you, as an internet sports gambler, aren’t doing it right.
The Odds Boosts are Awesome
And worth establishing an account with MyBookie. There will be times during the year when the house “boosts” the odds for certain events. For example, say Alabama is a consensus 24.5 favorite against rival Auburn. MyBookie will “boost” the odds, for example, to Auburn +31.5 and cap the odds “boost” bet at $10 or maybe $25. Would you, as a person who gambles on sports via the internet take Auburn plus 31.5, seven points over the consensus line of +24.5? It’s fun in my opinion.
Understand Any Books Bonus Rules
In my opinion, MyBookie rates low with sports book rating because people did not understand the bonus rule and in my opinion, that’s on them, not the house. Understand the difference between a “free play” bonus and a “cash” bonus. Understand rollover. Understand you cannot draw from the account until the play through, or roll over, on any book, is achieved.
The rules on account play through when accepting a bonus is the same on MyBookie as Bovada. Understand you cannot make a withdrawal on the account until the play through is reached. If you have to deposit more money into the account and have not achieved the rollover, you cannot withdraw the money whether you are with Bovada, Bookmaker, or MyBookie.
Phenomenal Customer Service
Anytime I had a question, customer service was prompt, friendly, and answered the question. I didn’t have any issues, because, in my opinion, MyBookie is a good book, requiring customer service’s attention in two years. They were very helpful when I signed up for a new account and made my first deposit to make sure I understood their bonus program and rollover requirement.
If someone made a deposit into an online, overseas, sports book and did not understand the book’s bonus program, that is on the person, not the book. The majority of complaints about MyBookie are from people who accepted their new account bonus program and failed to understand how the bonus program worked and completely failed to understand how a rollover works.
MyBookie, as a fairly new book with six years of history simply has not been around, in my opinion, long enough to have anything higher than a C- grade. People complaining about having to send documentation regarding identity to get paid by any online sports book should have accomplished this required task to be paid by any on line sports book when they opened their new account and, most likely, accepted the bonus program.
To those “Complaining”
One, there aren’t many complaints that are recent. And, the complaints are because the person did not understand the difference between “free play” and “cash” bonus programs various books offer. That’s on the person. I’ll let you in on a trade secret. Any online sports book, whether it’s Bookmaker, or Bovada, or MyBookie, their bonus program is designed to make money. Their entire business model is you accepting a bonus with a reasonable rollover (five to eight times) the deposit PLUS the bonus. Again, and I cannot emphasize this enough, understanding how the bonus program works is on you. You might have to “reload” to reach the bonus. Again, a trade secret, this is how an online sports book makes money.
To this guy making YouTube videos complaining about MyBookie. Bro, you did not understand their bonus program. That’s on you. You obviously had to “reload” and maybe “won”, however, your account had not reached the required rollover. Of course MyBookie isn’t going to pay you. No other online sports book would pay you either if your account had not reached the required rollover. Also, your claim you didn’t “know” you signed up for the bonus is ridiculous and, in my opinion, false.
And, I have no reason to fabricate any of the words in this post published by a friend. I hope you found it useful as the reader and consider them for your online sports gambling needs.
I have no commentary on the casino portion of the establishment other than the organization, MyBookie, has paid me my winnings every time without any issue via BitCoin.
