Sportsbook Review of MegaSB
2006/10/19 - Review by Ira Nanson
Based in Costa Rica and online since 2001 MegaSB are related to OnSideBet and parented by MSB Portal Group.
Sadly it seems that cost reduction is higher on their list of priorities than good old fashioned customer service. MegaSB do not provide wagering or support via the telephone and curiously, if you have not signed up an account with them and registered your email address your email will not pass the anti-spam filter. They are committed to a responding within 12 hours which is perhaps too long since they don't offer any other methods of support.
Maybe they should consider a live chat feature since they are striving to push all traffic towards the net.
MegaSB is powered by proprietary owned software that is not entirely reliable and the speed can be frustratingly slow. Although the layout is plain and clutter free it lacks any help section or FAQ's which is inconvenient when you consider the lack of customer service.
Website features include live scores, latest results and a news section.
There's not a lot of sporting events to choose from but they do take action on ice hockey, soccer, tennis, motor sports and most major US sports.
Wager types are limited to moneyline spreads, totals, parlays, teasers and round robins.
Minimum bet online is $1 and the maximum is $500-$1000. For playoffs and major tournaments the limits are increased to $2000-$3000.
Generous bonus incentives are on offer but it is necessary to email customer support within 24 hours of making a deposit. -104 reduced juice is available but steam players may be stuck with -107 or -110 lines depending on managements decision.
The lines get mixed reviews, some say they are inconsistent, some say they are nice and opinionated and some think they are just too confusing.
MegaSB will not tolerate professional players there are reports of cancelled wagers, confiscated winnings and closed accounts.
US residents are able to register an account and the site doesn't indicate that they are not able to wager, but unfortunately I cannot get a response from customer service to confirm this.
Despite all the negativity, MegaSB do have a good payout reputation and promise to process all requests within 24 hours, 7 days a week. Minimum withdrawal amount is $5.
The competition is tough to beat thought and with Bodog Sportsbook, CRIS Sports, Pinnacle Sports Betting and WagerWeb Sportsbook in your neighborhood there are really no good reasons to shop at MegaSB.
