Sportsbook Review of OnsideBet
2007/01/13 - Review by Ira Nanson
OnsideBet was launched online in 2003 by MSB Portal Group which has so far failed to make any big impact on the online gaming industry. Suffice to say however, there are no complaints relative to payouts which is always a major concern of many bettors.
The proprietary owned software receives the most complaints from customers and was once condemned for being the worst software ever! And still the interface is poor, the layout needs improving and placing a wager is just too confusing. Even logging out of the website isn't a straightforward process, the unnecessary complexity is just mind-boggling.
There are very few sporting events available at OnSideBet but you will find odds on football, basketball, ice hockey, soccer and whenever possible they will offer bets on tennis and boxing.
Wager types are limited to straight bets, totals, spread, round robins, parlays, teasers and propositions bets depending on the sport..
To drive customers towards the internet and to minimize the operational costs OnSideBet no longer provide customer support or wagering via the telephone.
The minimum bet online is $1 and the maximum is limited to $500 - $1000. But for playoffs and major tourneys the limits are increased to $2000 - $ 3000. The maximum amount any customer can win during one week is $100,000 US currency or equivalent.
Customers can fund their accounts using bank wire, NETeller, Webmoney, E-gold, ECO card, Western Union or Moneybookers and all service fees will be paid by OnSideBet.
However if you cashout before wagering the funds at least once the book will reclaim the service fees plus and additional $20 accounting fee from the requested amount.
Withdrawals are processed within 24 hours and the minimum amount for any method is $5.
Apart from live scores and live results the website really doesn't have any features boast about.
Residents of all countries are welcome to register at OnSideBet so long as they are 18 years and older.
This book really has insufficient wagering options and is most definitely catered towards the recreational bettor especially with the many promotions and bonus offers. FYI, sister site MegaSB offers less bonuses and have slightly better juice.
OnSideBet just has too much competition...
