In terms of variety, Bookmaker goes deep within sports. They have some off-the-radar college basketball and football games to wager on, their number of international soccer leagues are among the best in the industry, and they have futures up for rugby, cricket, and darts (in addition to prominent sports).
Bookmaker is a truly global site, and there’s rarely a game that they won’t book. Lines are automatically updated every 60 seconds so there are no surprises or a need to reload frequently.
Most bettors don’t care whether bets are limited at $1,000, $5,000 or $25,000. However, those with large bankrolls (or someone with a tip on an individual contest) may want to be able to go big when the opportunity presents itself. Bookmaker limits change from sport-to-sport, but you can get $5,000 or more on almost all prominent events in major sports.
Larger limits are available in high profile events – even random tennis matches allow for bets up to $1,000. Niche options like snooker, international volleyball, and e-sports are limited to a few hundred dollars. The minimum bet at Bookmaker is $1.
Many sites offer modern live betting, but frequently charge an extra nickel or dime for the opportunity to bet in-game. Though Bookmaker has sometimes increased juice on their live betting, it’s almost always the standard -110.
They have an impressive selection of games available, with live events always available. Decent options—whether it be with a spread, moneyline, or halftime line—can be found in-game. The modified live wagering bet slip has options to accept price changes, activate quick bets (one-click wagering), and a max bet option which gives you the limit on whatever bet you select.
Bookmaker’s live betting is wide-ranging and customizable in ways that most users get the experience they seek out.
Though it might not be the prettiest page, the straightforward nature of the Bookmaker mobile site is awesome.
Logging in via a phone or tablet, your account number and available cash are displayed at the top. A long list of sports is displayed down the middle of the screen. Instead of guessing what you might want to wager on – or advertising a promotion you likely aren’t interested in – each sport is its listed with a sizable button. Looking for a more obscure sport? Simply scroll down.
Once your sport is selected, the games beginning soonest are displayed. Simply pick the game and bet you are looking for, click on the green bet slip on the bottom right-hand corner of the mobile device, enter the amount to risk or win, hit “place bet”, and a green confirmation screen appears. The Bookmaker mobile site isn’t flashy: It’s functional, fast, and fun.
Secondary Offerings: Casino and Racebook
Bookmaker does not have a poker room, and their casino is on the small side. That said, we appreciate that they have video table games can be played for as little as a quarter, and they load quickly. As you might expect, slots can be played for as little as a nickel, but whereas some sites have hundreds of machines, Bookmaker only has a couple dozen.
