bookmaker reviewWhen it comes to online sportsbooks, Bookmaker can be described as a leader in the industry.  Not only was it one of the very first sportsbooks online, but it also is known as the sportsbook that “sets the line” for games.  For many events, bookmaker will be the first sportsbook to have a line available to wager on.

Bookmaker is also known as as one of the few sportsbooks that welcome professional sportsbettors.  They have no problem taking $5000 bets and can always be trusted to pay the winners, no matter the size.

Bookmaker Sportsbook is a well established sportsbook that has a long track record and good reputation.  However, in recent years they have gone downhill.  Slow payout times and some customer service issues have started to plague this sportsbook.

Although Bookmaker is still on our recommended list, we can’t rank them higher than a C- for this bookmaker review.  If they are able to start processing payouts in good speed again (which we hope they do!) we will reconsider this rating.


Bookmaker Review  *  The Inside Scoop!


Most common customer compliment:   Variety of betting lines, financial security, betting limits, Loyalty program

Most common customer complaint:      Slow payout times, odds aren’t great, poor bonuses


Bookmaker Bonus Details

– 15% Freeplay bonus for new accounts ($500 max, 4x rollover)

– 20% Freeplay bonus for reloads on Wednesdays ($500 max, 5x rollover)

Although Bookmaker doesn’t offer the best bonuses around, they do offer new and existing customers freeplay bonuses on their deposits and have fairly low rollover requirements.

Bookmaker also offers a loyalty program – it’s a good one.  You earn points for every wager and they can be used towards free cash in your account, travel rewards, gift cards and other merchandise.  It’s one of the best loyalty programs in the industry which helps to make up for the fact that their deposit bonuses are only so-so.


Bookmaker Review – Banking Options

Bookmaker Banking Options
Deposit Options Credit Cards Western Union Click2Pay Instadebit Few Others
Payouts Options Cashier’s Check Western Union Instadebit Bank Transfer  

Payout Speed:              VERY slow compared to other sportsbooks.  In my opinion there’s no excuse for payouts taking up to 15 business days, it just isn’t necessary.  If it wasn’t for Bookmaker’s slow payouts, our ranking would be much higher.

Bookmaker Review Conclusion

I wish I could give Bookmaker a higher rating!  After-all, they’ve been around for years and many consider them a pioneer in the industry.  The problem is that their payouts just take too long and their customer service has gone downhill.  It’s still a safe sportsbook to play at, but there are better options out there.
