Sportsbook Review of BetMania
2007-04-03 - Review by Ira Nanson

What strikes me about BetMania is the number of flashing graphics on the homepage, it's almost too distracting. And although first impressions are generally important you should never judge a sportsbook by its cover.

There are very few bonuses or promotions on offer but reduced juice is most definitely a big benefit to serious bettors and this book gives -107 on football and -108 on basketball everyday. However bettors who choose to make phone wagers will not be eligible to receive discount wagers with BetMania.

BetMania largely caters to the American bettor and the sporting events they take action on reflects this. In addition to America's most popular sports, odds are offered on golf, soccer, tennis, auto sports and horse racing. The most sought after bet types are available including buying points, if bets, money lines, parlays, props and futures, reverses, round robins, run lines, straight bets and teasers.

Deposit options range from credit card, Western Union, Moneygram, cashier check, bank wire, NETeller and SolidPay. Although most options are available to US and Canadian customers they will need to check the continued availability from time to time.

Many players have reported unscheduled downtimes but customers are encouraged to login to the temporary site to avoid disruption.

Slow payouts have been a major complaint in the last months but that's mainly attributable to NETeller and the process restrictions brought on by the Internet Anti Gambling Laws and it's a problem faced by many sportsbooks.

BetMania is not packed with features or gimmicks. It's pretty much a straightforward sportsbook with a Casino but the low juice makes it very attractive.

To add to its credibility the book is related to the highly acclaimed SkyBook which has been catering to the recreational bettor since 1997.

BetMania is a solid book and the parent company Main Street Vegas Ltd have so far maintained a solid reputation in the gaming industry.
