TopBet is a sportsbook that has always had dynamic features and real positives. Over the last few years, many negatives have been eliminated, while the positives remain. TopBet is coming into their own.
The sportsbook has qualities that are to be admired too but they aren’t the flashiest site in the industry. They offer a big-time bonus, are focused primarily on major domestic sports, and have consistently good promos.
It offers ample options for deposits, but nothing special. Credit and debit cards are accepted, as are Bank Wire and Quick Cash. The minimum deposit on cards is $50 whereas other options require at least $300 to waive fees. Most methods allow you to send your money and start betting right away.
This bookmaker has always been smooth when it comes to bonuses. It is hard to find a better incentive than their 100-percent up to $250 with 5x rollover perk. Other sites offer 10-percent reloads, but TopBet will give you a 30-percent second chance if you re-up on a Thursday, and if you contact them via phone or email, there’s a pretty decent chance you can get an unpublicized promotion if you want to bet with them. Their personnel are eager to assist and available all day, every day. You can interact with TopBet on social media too.
Where TopBet thrives is betting football, basketball, and baseball. They have lots of options, many props, and ample futures. Sometimes you can get reduced juice if you bet early. Watch their props and futures for vig, sometimes they charge -120 on exotic bets. They also like to squeeze a small extra fee on in-game wagering, which is offered on certain high profile games. Recently they have expanded off-the-wall options with betting now available on certain small sports like rugby, and props on who will become the next James Bond. As has always been the case, TopBet wants you to wager on underdogs. They shade their lines with favorites often costing an extra half-a-point than other sites, whereas you can have that extra half-point if you bet dogs. You also can buy points, but are not allowed to sell them. If you like the Niners +7 in Arizona, you can pay a higher vig and get 7.5 or 8, but there is no option for laying 6 or 6.5.
TopBet doesn’t have a racebook or poker room. They do have a large and very nice casino. There are frequently free tournament’s if you are a blackjack player, and if you like sports primarily, but want to dabble with slot machines, it is a very good setup.
Payouts occur, but not seamlessly at TopBet. You can get one “free” withdrawal using either Pay2Card or Swift Check, but there is red tape. There are fees for small requests, it often takes more than a week to get cash, and after you’ve received your free payout with each method, then you’ll pay to get your money.
TopBet was good to begin with, and is even better now. They seem destined for continued improvement and stardom in the sportsbook industry.
