USA Players welcome at MyBookie + $1000 Bonus
Visit MyBookieMyBookie is the newest firm that USAbetting.com has added to its roster of recommended sportsbooks for Americans.
We are always looking for likely US-facing bookies, but they are far from easy to find. That’s because they need to be honest, trustworthy, operate using good software and have a reliable payments’ system – and that is just for starters. So it is a rare treat to be writing a review of a firm that we are happy to give the USAbetting seal of approval to.
MyBookie accepts players from all U.S. states apart from these restricted locations: New Jersey, Nevada, Pennsylvania and New York.
We have kept our eagle eye on MyBookie Sportsbook since they first opened up online in the summer of 2014. Sure, we knew they had management with a long-established resumé in the sports betting industry. But this was a new brand and we needed to know they weren’t going to have issues, disappear within a couple of years or be outright rogues. After all, there are a few scam artists out there. So it has taken a few years of observation before we were prepared to suggest MyBookie Sportsbook to our readers.
This firm is very competitive and compares favorably with it’s chief rivals. It has an easy-to-use website with intuitive software. The sports’ betting lines offer fair value and the extent of them is excellent. There is also a dedicated racebook section plus casino.
MyBookie Sportsbook Bonuses
There is a choice of bonuses from MyBookie and remember, you do not have to take a bonus as they do have rollover requirements which can sometimes become a big bind. So make sure you read the terms on their website for each of the bonuses. If you don’t want a bonus then remove any bonus code before you deposit. This is what is available:
- 50% Sign-Up Bonus Up To $1000 (promo code: MYB50): You get 50% of your initial deposit, which must be for at least $100. There is a “five to fifteen times” rollover requirement. You can not withdraw within 30 days of claiming this bonus. The bonus funds can only be used on straight wagers (like moneylines) and on the biggest sports. The odds must be between -200 and +200.
- 25% Cash Bonus If Your Deposit Is Below $100 (MYB50): There are rollover terms for this as well.
- 10% Cash Bonus (200CASH) Up To $200: Despite looking the least favorable, it is arguably one of the better bonuses that they offer. That is because this avoids a huge rollover requirement. It is only x 1, though that is x 1 of your deposit and bonus. You can get up to $200 as a first deposit cash bonus. Obviously to get that full amount you would need to deposit $2000 to start off and we would not recommend that. You do need to decide if you like a place before making a hefty deposit. However, it may be worth having at the lower levels. Say you deposit $100 then you qualify for $10 in cash, but you still need to bet $110 ($100 + $10 bonus) before withdrawing. Use promo code: 200CASH. This has been added since the negative comments from bettors in their MyBookie reviews below and would suit people wanting less hassle with the turnover terms and conditions.
- $20 Risk Free Bet: If your first sports bet loses and you wagered $20 or more, then they give a free play of $20. This needs to be claimed by you. Check the details and terms of this offer via the bonuses link on the top navigation menu of their site.
- 100% Casino Bonus up to $300 (code: MYC100): There is a 50 x rollover on this one before you can withdraw.
- 25% Reload Bonus up to $500 (MYB25): This has similar terms to the first bonus, but you get it on one subsequent deposit, if you want it. Minimum deposit of $100 required.
- 8% Rebate in Racebook: You get it on stakes that were placed at over 11/10 (ie: over +110). There are no real terms beyond that except it only applies to bets in the racebook and it isn’t given automatically. You do need to request it.
Maybe we are a bit jaded here at USAbetting, but we tend to avoid bonuses altogether and just get on with the business of placing bets. All these terms and conditions and rollover requirements – and it is the same with all the sportsbooks – are a minefield. It is pretty hard to get something for nothing in online betting, as in life.
Deposit and Withdrawal Options
- Deposits: You can use visa credit cards, Western Union, Moneygram or wire transfer.
- Payouts: This can be by bank wire, moneygram, ACH Custom or bitcoin. Interestingly there is no option to deposit by bitcoin but you can withdraw via this method. Payouts are processed after 48 hours, which they claim is quicker than anywhere else. Certainly it is competitive time-wise and MyBookie.ag realizes the value to their players of speedy payouts.
How User-Friendly Is MyBookie Website?
Well we took a tour of the sports betting software and were impressed. It is fast and obvious. It is much like the best of its rivals in that the menu is on the left-hand side, while the ‘bet slip’ is on the right hand side.
If you look at our image below then you can see that we are about to place a bet. It really is that simple. If you have never used an online sportsbook before it will still be an absolute breeze for you.
MyBookie Sportsbook Review Verdict
This bookie is a great addition to the ranks of the top USA sportsbooks. MyBookie does prefer recreational rather than professional action. The website is easy to use and most countries are accepted, including America (but not Pennsylvania, New York, Nevada or New Jersey states) and Canada.
The bonuses are competitive, but watch out for the typical rollover requirements which can be a hassle at any firm because you can’t withdraw until you have achieved them. So you don’t need to take a bonus. They work hard to make sure the payouts don’t create a problem for any of their players.
All in all, we rate MyBookie.ag quite highly. Once you’ve joined up and given them a go please come back to USAbetting.com and leave your review of MyBookie Sportsbook below.

I just read these MyBookie reviews and I am a little surprise they aren't more positive. I play both sports betting and the live casino and they do a good job all round. Never had a payouts problem and they take bitcoin. The customer service is really helpful. I don't get the problems. If they really existed, I would have encountered them myself. I play there often enough.
Hey there, If you actually have an account with Mybookie and you have an issue please contact us direct. Many of the negative complaints are done by shills of other brands. My experience at Mybookie has been very positive and I'd say this is only possible by having great relationships with our customers. If you have any questions or claims on your account please contact us direct. Speak with a manager if you're not satisfied. Contact Us, Call Toll Free: 1-844-866-BETS(2387).
Customer service for the bookie will purposely create long wait times and avoid adding bonus promotions to your account on deposits along with making your withdrawal seem unavailable for no reason. The sports book will supposedly send you to different customer service reps and state they are notifying the department in charge of any issue you claim. Don’t deposit using a card transaction either. The sportsbook claimed on multiple occasions my card was declined but after contacting my banking institution regarding the failed transaction, they stated the transactions were processed and posted. This sportsbook has many other online reviews that state withdrawing from the sports book is extremely difficult and often times the service makes you wait longer than stated time lengths to receive funds. Also the casino adjusts sports lines to winning wagers on your account to lessen payouts on winnings. Not gonna lie this website looks cool and nice compared to other sports books but they will do their best to scam money from you. Betonline or Bovada are way more trustworthy . . . just look at online reviews. Avoid this website they will steal your money. Use another website, there are so many other ones way better than this that will actually pay you for winnings and be fair.
People must be on tilt when they comment like this below. MyBookie is as solid as they come for an online sportsbook. Been with them since 2015. I enjoy my experience for the most part aside from the losses and the bad beats. Never had an issue getting my money out. Sometimes have trouble getting money in. Good luck punters!
They will not return my deposit because I did not bet enough.
This must be because you took their welcome bonus and have not fulfilled the rollover requirements. This is a trap people fall into when they either don't read or understand the terms and conditions of the welcome bonuses. We have a lot of sympathy for you and often, in our view, it is best not to get involved with the welcome bonuses from the USA sportsbooks, given the hoops that have to be jumped through. Instead, just join and bet.
Hey Derek, What ending up happening. Did you get your Visa payment returned to you? Sounds like a one-off bad experience. I've been fortunate with Bitcoin payouts but I always deposit via credit card and prefer checks. Getting a check payout is available but the wait is sometimes three weeks. Bitcoin is alright if you know how to cash it out rather than just hold it and return it to another book. MyBookie is the same as most other offshore books. It's no Bovada but it's definitely better than most out there.
This company are a bunch of crumbs, stay away. I tried them, placed a bet on the Super Bowl where they charged me immediately and I am still waiting to be paid for my win. They are total liars and will constantly tell you next Friday but the payoff still isn’t here after 4 weeks when they say 10 days. Here’s the deal: they have no money backing them up and can’t pay. You place a bet here just open your window and throw the cash away. That’s the same as betting with these scumbags.
MyBookie.ag: Terrible Payouts. On Sept 30, 2017 I requested my $400 balance to be payed out via bitcoin. Auto response email "Please send a copy of your drivers license and credit card before we can process your request." No big deal, I make a quick scan to a PDF of the requested documents and submit them via email. Three days go by and I hear nothing. Go to their site and submit another request for payout. Auto response "Please allow 24 hours to process your request." So (following instructions) once a day I request and once a day I am told to allow 24 hours. I send in direct emails asking for an update nothing. Weeks go by with no response to several mails and repeated failed attempts to request the money via website. I finally call customer service, friendly rep examines the record "Well i'm not sure what happened but I will get this processed" Cool. Wait two days and no bitcoins show up. I log on to the site and this time my balance shows zero...hmmm, progress? Maybe they just process slowly. Wait another day nothing. I call again, another rep "Not sure what happened but my supervisor says they are transferring it and it should show up in 15 min". I wait a day and nothing. It is now Oct 21 (3 weeks in). Till now I've been patient as its only a $400 payout. I call again and calmly try to explain whats going on to the rep. I am put on hold for 15 min and suddenly cut off. I call again and once again make my case, put on hold and the rep comes back...'OK sir, please refresh your page and you should see your $400 balance show up. Refresh and the 400 is back. WTF!? "Sir i'm requesting a payout not depositing." 'Ah then you can just follow the payout process on the website' WHAT!?, I'm back where i started 3 weeks ago? So I ask him how long it will take. "Well sir, it takes three business days to review a request for a payout, as its Saturday you should expect it around Wednesday." No, apology for inconvenience, no explanation of why a simple bitcoin deposit has stymied them so. No doubt come Wednesday (5 days away) I again will have to go through this runaround. I'm very unhappy now. For a business who's business is money they seem to do a poor job of managing it. Derek Phelps MyBookie.ag Account ending in 8872. UPDATE: 10/23 On my last mail I told them that if there is some problem processing bitcoins they could just issue a credit to the credit card that I made the initial deposit with if it would expedite things. Got a quick response that they have decided to refund the $400 to my credit card but be patient, that in some cases it takes up to 22 days to process. I immediately respond back STOP! Go ahead and proceed with the bitcoin transfer as that way i at least have a confirmation that the $ was sent. They reply "Oh, Sorry, the refund was just issued and we cannot reverse it now." (uh...BS. I have had several merchant accounts and you have full control of refunds provided they haven't processed through settlement to the customers account) I get no transaction number, no case id, no tracking, etc. Been down this road before with vendors waiting out the clock to prevent chargebacks. I have thrown up my hands and just now reversed the charge with my Citi card.
Thank you for your valuable feedback. That sounds a nightmare tbh.
MyBookie.ag is an improving USA betting site. I am almost classing it as good as the main recommendations that you have on USAbetting.com. Things keep getting better, the choice of events and the low juice on many of them really makes them a big option when shopping around between sportsbooks for the top odds.
So after playing at most of the biggest USA offshore sportsbooks, I finally gave MyBookie a go. I am fairly cautious with the newer bookies, though this one has been around a while now I guess. I heard they could be trusted and offered some nice odds. I like the website and it has all gone well. I hope they carry on the way they are. Looks like a good addition to the ranks.
Pleasantly surprised by this sportsbook. I havent played there long but so far so good.
