Review of MyBookie’s Sportsbook
MyBookie.ag, launched in 2014, is newer on the scene, but this newcomer has been exceeding expectations thanks to smart choices by an experienced management staff in charge of making everything happen. Mybookie has quickly earned a reputation as a legitimate sportsbook.
They offer bettors in all major markets an entertaining lineup of gaming options and are prepared to offer a major bonus to entice both big and small players to signup.
If you like betting on teams, MyBookie.ag does the trick. If you like betting on individuals, however, MyBookie.ag is the best sportsbook out there.
Fantasy sports lovers will have an edge when betting on “the game within the game”, and are sure to find offerings that aren’t available anywhere else.

MyBookie Bonuses and Promos
- Sign-up Bonus: 50% up to $1,000
- Regulars receive enticing bonus offers
- Maximum winnings of $5,000 with bonuses
Their standard sign-up bonus is a
50% match-up to a reasonable $1,000.
The minimum deposit for a 50% bonus is $100. Those who start with less than $100 get a 25% bump. Rollover at MyBookie is very reasonable and most bettors who get the sign up offer will be under 7x. It is on a sliding scale as follows:
MyBookie calculates rollover by taking the deposit amount, adding any applicable transfer fees (plus the bonus amount), and multiplying by the rollover figure. The maximum winnings permissible from any bet made with a bonus are $5,000. As is a standard practice, promotions are for recreational players only.
Unfortunately, bonus funds are not available for middling bets, either, as MyBookie prohibits users from betting on both sides of a game with promotional money. If you are smart enough to bet an NFL line early at -4 and the number shifts to -1.5, why shouldn’t you be able to put yourself in position to win both bets?
After you join, contact customer service to get your added bonus percentage. This is easy and doesn’t take a lot of time.
Once you’re a customer, MyBookie has some exciting promotions. They have a number of substantial offers once you have signed up and are a regular. It pays to stay with Mybookie for the long term.
Deposits & Withdrawals
- Fees waived with $300 minimum
- No time-consuming or expensive funding methods
- Make deposits during business hours for better service and fewer fees
Deposits Options & Fees
MyBookie accepts deposits in a variety of ways, and – aside from bank wires – fees are waived if you start with a $300 minimum. And though the minimum and maximum deposits are a bit tighter than at some other books, the process to get started is pretty straightforward.
To fund an account, we clicked on the deposit tab, chose Bitcoin, requested an address, went to our wallet, and sent the cash. Shortly after, the blockchain network verified our transaction and we were ready to roll. (Note: you must send an email to get your bonus, which takes less than a business day.)
MyBookie also offers credit card, MoneyGram, and eCheck deposits. Though none are difficult, note the differences and details in the policies with each so that you are not surprised later. Also, be aware that wire transfers are not currently available despite being listed on the website.
Withdrawal Methods & Payout Times
MyBookie’s process to request cash isn’t difficult, but takes a little time. Depending upon your deposit method, it may involve some paperwork. If you’ve funded your account using a credit card, you will need to:
- Provide a copy of your valid photo ID;
- Provide copies of the card used;
- Complete and sign a verification form.
They deliver on time … and have fee-free withdrawal options.
Though the withdrawal times appear a bit longer than at other sites, MyBookie is upfront about how long payouts take. Our experience is that they deliver on time (sometimes earlier!), and have fee-free options. Their allowance of up to three withdrawals per week (if you use each of their various methods) is generous, but the methods to request cash are limited.
As long as you understand the deposit and withdrawal process from the start, there won’t be any surprises. MyBookie’s policies are set and they adhere to them.
Betting on Sports at MyBookie.ag
- The most creative and extensive player props available.
- Betting on individual numbers & stats offer major cash-ins
- Low initial limits
Most sportsbooks have comparable wagering options on similar events. Where books set themselves apart – and why people gravitate to different sites – is what they do uniquely, whether it be reduced juice, the earliest lines, or higher limits. What MyBookie does better than anyone else is offer the most creative and extensive player props available.
What MyBookie does better than anyone else is offer the most creative and extensive player props available.
For instance, if you think like a fantasy football manager and like to take the individual numbers and stats out of the bigger game, no site allows you to cash in on that better than MyBookie.
You can, of course, bet on all of the expected events (and many unexpected ones, as well). Their initial limits are low, but they claim that they’re negotiable, if necessary. They don’t post lines overly quickly, but for the average fan betting a few bucks here and there, their offerings are ideal.
- No list for betting limits offered, decided on case-by-case basis
- Does not appear to be an issue for majority of players
MyBookie has a reasonable number of events available for wagering. Of course, they focus on major sports and cover them in an in-depth manner, particularly player props.
They also have the standard fare for golf and other American staples, plus a solid (but not all-inclusive) list of international soccer, e-sports, international hoops, and a few political and entertainment props.
- Juice for live betting is reasonable
- Offers quickbet function
- 95% of big games available
If you’re only looking for the basics out of a sportsbook, MyBookie has you covered. This is especially true with their live wagering platform.
Though the juice for live betting varies, it tends to be in the reasonable -115 range. It seems that the smaller the sport, the larger the juice (sometimes you’ll see -120 for tennis), but they’re not gouging customers, and the platform is excellent.
MyBookie updates live betting on a play-by-play basis, not just during timeouts, and they offer several moneylines and totals for each event.
MyBookie updates live betting on a play-by-play basis, not just during timeouts, and they offer several moneylines and totals for each event. Knowing that speed is vital for live betting, MyBookie has a quickbet function, where you can click on your side, determine your wager, and press “bet” within a fraction of a second.
MyBookie’s Premium Live Betting Platform always seems be active. So if you want to bet on the second set of a tennis match between two relative unknowns in a secondary event during the middle of the night, not a problem! They don’t offer live betting for every game from the big sports, but expect to find about 95-percent of them.
- Strongest player props sections in the industry
- Wide variety of sports, players, & stats
- Excellent system for grading bets
It’s possible that MyBookie has the best live betting in the industry, and they excel at player props (found under the ‘Props Builder’ tab). In-depth and user-friendly, they aren’t lying when they say they give you “the power to create and customize your own bets on player performance.” All you need to do is choose your bet type, player, statistic, and you’re good to go.

Though it’s a bit more complex than the explanation, this is actually a great thing: it would be too simple if there were simply five players available, one bet type, and one statistical category. At MyBookie, you can choose from a wide variety of sports, most players on each team’s roster, and a handful of different stats. Bet over or under on a particular statistical benchmark, or bet head-to-head against other players.
How Does It Play Out for Bettors?
The regular fantasy crowd tends to think about the game player-by-player, and are far more into individuals than teams. Unlike in fantasy, where you need to be accurate about several players to be win big, at MyBookie, you can hone in on one player that you deeply believe in (or think will choke that week).
Mobile Betting Experience
We appreciated that our mobile experience was simple and straightforward, and that both phones and tablets allowed easy access for MyBookie’s mobile betting. The site remembers your most recent bets and takes you to that sport-betting page, allowing you to quickly find the bet you want when you’re in a hurry.
The sleek design offers easy navigation …
The sleek design offers easy navigation, with the various sports displayed above the fold. Upcoming lines can be brought up with one click, and buttons are large enough to click without error. Loading times are almost the same speed for both mobiles and PCs.
Mobile users must click on the bet slip to make it appear.
Additional Advice for Betting
MyBookie is a well laid-out site, enabling you to navigate efficiently and get to the various parts of the site without making several clicks. When making several plays, there is a “retain picks” button in the bet slip so that you don’t need to go back and repeatedly find individual games.
While we did spend some time speaking with customer service to understand MyBookie limits, payouts, etc., the agents were easy to reach via phone call, call-back request, and chat.
They certainly tried their best to be helpful, but occasionally gave contradictory information. Not having straightforward numbers and rules on their website created a longer list of questions. When we pushed for specific details, they either gave broad answers or asked an associate.
Overall, we’d say that MyBookie customer service is acceptable. The waiting time to chat with an agent is satisfactory, though it is apparent that they are answering more than one line of questioning simultaneously.
The Bottom Line
If player props and live betting are important to you – and where you’ll spend most of your time – then MyBookie is a great fit. MyBookie is also excellent for those who tend to think about players and statistics.
MyBookie is a very solid option that opens up player rewards to customers, and offers generous payout terms. Those looking for early lines or large limits should go elsewhere.
