BallyBet sportsbook review

3.5/5

BallyBet Sportsbook is operating in New York, Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Indiana and Virginia currently and will open in more states as licensing is agreed and specifications are met. Currently, the sportsbook is only available as an app, so sadly if you’re trying to play on desktop that’s not an option yet. If you want a sports promo code or welcome bonus, you’re sadly out of luck. This sportsbook does not offer them, which again is unusual but we hope to see this change soon. We’ve covered more in our full review below.

Pros

  • BallyBet parlay promos are unique
  • Customer service agents available by phone
  • Excellent graphics and display
  • Very easy to sign-up and open an account

Cons

  • No sign-up bonus
  • Software navigation needs improvement
  • No desktop/laptop version
  • All sports available for wagering not listed on home page

Sports markets and bet types

3.5/5

BallyBet Sportsbook is one of the US sportsbooks that’s moved online in 2022 since the regulation changes. We’ve been really impressed by a lot of things at this sportsbook, namely their excellent customer support and high-quality security. Currently, BallyBet is available exclusively as an app and you can read our full review below, but we’ll just say we had a good first impression. We’ll cover the sports on offer, what promotions you can expect and more in this BallyBet review.

Bonuses and promotions

3.2/5

BallyBet’s promotional offers are low-dollar, but we see offers here that we do not see elsewhere, such as a consolation prize of a $25 free bet if a four-leg or grater parlay contains only one loss. There are no sign-up bonuses or refer-a-friend bonuses, which is strange because those bonuses are how the other American sportsbooks are drawing a great deal of their customers. We expect BallyBet to evolve this area in order to remain competitive. The parent company is deep-pocketed, so we’re hoping they’ll rethink the offering soon.

Banking

3/5

We’re disappointed that there are only two ways to deposit funds and only one way to withdraw at BallyBet. This is far less than a typical US sportsbook, and we are really hoping this changes soon. To deposit you can use ACH eCheck or debit cards and to withdraw you can only use ACH eCheck. It’s important prospective bettors are ok with these payment options before they realize too late. Both options are safe and secure and are vetted by different state wagering commissions which is a plus. Withdrawal time is between three and five business days which is fairly standard.

The minimum deposit is $10 depending on type of payment method, and the maximum is $5,000. Any withdrawal of $10,000 or more will be immediately reported to the IRS in accordance with US banking laws.

Security and fair play

4.5/5

BallyBet uses TLS encryption to protect users’ information so you can play safe in the knowledge that your data is secure. BallyBet is owned primarily by Standard General LP, a hedge fund headquartered in New York. All licensed U.S. sportsbooks pass our 25-step review process.

Players can also access customer support over the phone seven days a week which we are really impressed by. They have a quick help option where you can find answers to FAQs too. It's clear they want to help resolve any issues players may have quickly.

BallyBet app

3.5/5

As BallyBet is only available as an app, this part of the review is very important. Currently they don’t offer a desktop-friendly version of the sportsbook, so this is for iOS and Android users only. It’s easy to follow the live events and discover the featured bets. They offer a modest selection of sports, but they cover all the big American favorites which is a big tick. Helpfully, the amount of money in your account is listed at the top right hand corner of the screen so you can keep your bankroll in check. While there is room for improvement, it’s still a good standard sportsbook app.

Conclusion

3.5/5

BallyBet is a good standard sportsbook for players looking to start their betting journey. We liked the interface and the feel of the app, which is a plus seeing as there is only an app and no website. We also think the range of sports available was good and covers all the big US favorites.

There is still room for improvement though and we did think the lack of banking options was disappointing compared to their competitors. There was also a lack of bonuses and promotional offers available that so many players look for when they’re signing up.

The best feature by far is the ability to reach customer service on the phone, giving it a nice personal touch. It remains to be seen whether BallyBet will build a desktop version, but for now it’s exclusively for smartphone users. The app is a great option and we think we'll see a lot more from the sportsbook in the coming months.
