The first thing we noticed about BetOnline was the red shield next to the brand name. This was shown along with a message confirming they'd been online for 25+ years. That alone is quite impressive, and something that few sites can match. So, does this mean that BetOnline is the best site to visit if you're looking for casino action or more? We're about to find out.

Where does the casino software come from?

It doesn't take long to spot games from Rival and Betsoft, although there are games from Dragon Gaming and others as well. Each casino game has a logo in the top left of the image in the lobby, so you might recognize some of the others.

BetOnline has a superb lobby

At the top of the site, you'll see all the areas you can visit at BetOnline. These include a racebook and a sportsbook, along with the casino. Once inside the casino, you'll see another lobby, this time offering access to table games, slots, video poker, and plenty more variations as well.

It's green for go if you want to join the casino

We often see the join or signup button in green at online casinos, and the same holds true at BetOnline. You can see the button in the top corner as per usual, over on the right of the page.

Read point 14 of the terms for signup restrictions

BetOnline clearly lists all countries and locations that cannot play at the casino. These include Australia, France, and various other locations, so do check this ahead of joining. Furthermore, you must check that you're above the legal age in your location for using online sites such as this. Make sure the law allows you to sign up too, otherwise you may well run into problems.

All the games you can handle

Yes, there are so many games in several areas of the online casino, you're not going to get bored anytime soon. Furthermore, we can see how convenient it is for BetOnline to have connections with several software developers. You'll be able to play all manner of games from slots to video poker and through to the specialty t

itles that don't fit in elsewhere.

All the slots you can handle?

You decide! With so many games at this casino, some featuring progressive prizes and others sticking to the paytable, it soon becomes obvious how much choice you've got. The quantity of available slots means you also get lots of themes flying around.

You're able to try plenty of free games

You cannot ever tell what a game might be like until you play it. Since BetOnline offers most of its games with a demo version, assuming the creator allows this, you're able to pick through the titles to try a few.

Paid games for most budgets

Always look at the minimum and maximum coin values for each game you're interested in when you visit BetOnline. They do vary from one game to the next, so it makes sense to check this first. With the generous number of games available, you'll spot plenty that might be ideal for you though.

New slot games get a label… as does everything else

The NEW label on all relevant games makes it simpler to spot anything that has landed at BetOnline since your last visit. Make sure you check out the new area of the lobby, as this is the best and fastest way to find all the possibilities there.

How many promotions do they offer?

The answer to this could vary according to how often you visit the site and what's available at that time. However, since BetOnline covers a variety of services and not just a casino, you will find offers relating to most areas there. Look for the welcome bonus first, and then check back for later offers once you're settled in.

For tournaments read contests

There is a contests area next to the promos in the menu, so if you are curious to know whether there is anything you'd like to enter, that's the place to go. There won't always be any live contests happening. All the contests mentioned were closed on our recent trip to BetOnline, but it's great to know they do run them.

Is there any news about some casino winners?

We didn't see any, no. It might be different if you're inside the actual lobby when you're logged in. However, you can see whether a game includes a progressive jackpot because it is displayed across the bottom of the image for that game. You'll

see this when you're exploring inside the lobby.

Any news about rewards for the site?

We looked in various areas but could find no information about comp points or a VIP club anywhere, so we assume that means there isn't one.

Do you need an app to visit the mobile site?

It doesn't look that way. It seems that you need to go to the site via your preferred mobile browser. Having tested this, we found we saw the mobile version of the site and could then easily look around that way.

Can you play without registration at BetOnline?

Unfortunately, no… we tried doing this but were met with the signup/login screen when we attempted it. At least once you choose a game, you can create an account from the next screen.

Instant play seems to be the way to go

This keeps things much easier and more convenient, as there's nothing to download. It all works in your browser, so you can choose and play a game whenever you wish.

Affiliate info appears at the bottom of the site

There are plenty of great links there, including one to Commission Kings, which is the affiliate program for BetOnline. Head there if you want to learn more about this feature.

Sporting services and betting at BetOnline

The title of the site does say Bet… so you can expect to find all kinds of other options there. They have a sportsbook and racebook to explore, along with a live betting area. Poker and eSports are covered too, so there's a lot to check out within your membership of the site.

Blog, forum… or newsroom?

It's the latter at BetOnline, as you'll see if you follow one of those links at the bottom of the site. This is great to see as you can check on the latest happenings relevant to using the site.

Live dealer games feature as well

If you prefer live casino games to the standard ones, you'll get the chance to try

those too at BetOnline Casino. The live area gives you several possibilities, including black, red, video poker, and specialty games. There are cash races too, so make sure you're signed in to learn more about all the options.

Depositing via one of many methods

Yes, players at this casino and website receive more ways to deposit than might be the case if they were to use another casino. If you go to the foot of the page, you'll see nine payment logos there. However, accessing the help area means you'll see a list of all the available methods. There might be different minimums and maximums for each one, but you can check those out in their useful chart.

What about making a withdrawal?

There are several ways you can do this too, although they do state that the fastest way to go is via cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin does appear as an option

Its logo appears at the bottom of the site, and you can get further instructions on how to deposit or withdraw inside the FAQ and help areas.

Plenty of help available

This should be obvious by now, but you can go to the FAQ page or to the help center if you wish. They also offer a live chat link and a button that asks you if you need help. This opens a panel that gives you the chance to select the way you'd like to get in touch with them.
