So, what can you expect from this site? I was impressed with the Betnow sportsbook. It offers popular markets and the platform makes betting easy. Fair warning though – Betnow is sportsbook heavy, so it will naturally appeal to bettors who are occasional casino players.
For me, this wasn’t a challenge at all, as that brief describes me perfectly. Even if this balance isn’t appealing, you still need to keep reading this Betnow review. As you might have already gathered from my other online gambling site reviews; there is more to it than just the games.
- Betnow established in 2016
- Opens up a base station in Curacao
- Gains Curacao gambling licence
- Betnow partners covers.com for promotions

Betnow is a full featured casino with a lot to offer. I understand that simply stating that will not suffice, that’s not what you are here for. If you are to go on a space mission you need more information than this. So, let’s look at the map and see how you can navigate. Bonuses are up first.
Betnow bonuses – Intergalactic generosity
The Betnow online welcome bonus is unlike anything I have come across in the entire cosmos. It offers players the chance to select, not only the size of the overall bonus, but the level of wagering required as well. I’ll go through how it works below.
- First offer – 100% deposit match wagered 25x
- Second offer – 50% deposit match wagered 8x
- Third offer – 25% deposit match wagered 5x
To claim any version of the welcome bonus you need a promo code. You can also just use the links posted on playersbest.com and the bonus you want will be applied automatically.
You will need a deposit of $20. This will give you access to a maximum bonus of $500, valid for Betnow sports betting, casino, and horse racing.
Other bonuses – Going past lift off
The welcome offer is just the beginning of the voyage. But if you are going to successfully traverse the expanse of the milky way, you will need more juice. I was impressed by the collection of bonuses available for regulars in Betnow casino.
Many options are available, like the refer a friend promo, which can earn you $200. You also get regular rebates, weekly promotions, and of course, the loyalty program.
Betnow sports betting – Betting with the stars
The sports betting complement in Betnow is perfect, if you are into American sports. It offers all the major markets that any serious sports bettor would look for in an app. These include basketball, baseball, football. hockey, and even MLS soccer.
Besides the main options, I saw that you can also wager on UFC, boxing, golf, auto racing, and tennis. Betnow even included horse racing and esports, which I know many will be glad to see. But apart from that, there is nothing much to talk about. This is in stark contrast to what I saw in my William Hill rating. Surely Betnow needs more if it is to stand against players like these.
If live betting is what you are after, you can also find that in Betnow. This is an entirely separate section of the site where you can see the live game without interruption. I can’t move on from this section without mentioning the quick live betting feature. It allows you to make quick bets on already selected odds. If the picks appeal to you, you need only click to accept.
Betnow casino – Is it just a side option?
I see avid casino gamblers having a hard time in Betnow. The site offers some casino games, but way less than what you would get elsewhere. The entire collection is less than 100 games. Yes, that’s how small it is. So, if you harbour any ambitions of swimming in an aurora of reel and dice games, you best look elsewhere. But before you jet off, let me show you what you can get here.
Betnow casino has a limited selection of table games on offer. The number’s may not be amazing, but this lobby is big on variety. You have games like Multihand Blackjack, Craps, Baccarat, Pai Gow, Sic Bo, and more in one place. Progressives are always a headline item wherever you can find them. In Betnow, you have access to 18 spectacular titles that can payout big.
Video poker has also been added to the lobby to provide some more variety. Tens or Better, Aces and Eights Multiline, and Keno, are some of the titles at your disposal. If you are not familiar with any of the titles listed on Betnow, you can click on a game and instantly get information on how it’s played. I imagine this will be an invaluable tool, especially for newbies getting started in the casino.
The last section in the games lobby is dedicated to the live games collection. I tried searching around to see who provides the studio in Betnow. The site is tight lipped about this and I had not received any word back at the time of writing.
Now, mission access to all the perks in Betnow casino is only granted to those who have clearance. Luckily, signing up in an online casino is generally painless. For a similar process, you can check out my Tipico review.
Registration – The Betnow casino sign up process
In Betnow, your journey starts on the casino homepage. You will see four options, Horse racing, Casino, Live Betting, and Betnow sports betting. Click on the orange ‘Join Now’ button on your pick. That’s what I did, and was quickly transferred to a registration page.
On landing there I was presented with a form, in which I had to fill out my details; nothing out of the ordinary, just your usual name, surname, email, address, phone number, and so on. The only thing that stood out for me was that at the bottom part of the form, you need to provide a 4-digit pin. You will need to provide this pin when you contact customer support via phone or live chat.
Betnow casino is transparent, it offers its terms and conditions just below the registration form, so you can go through them before committing. Now, I know that most players rarely go through these, if ever. But you need to familiarise yourself with the document. I was checking out customer complaints about unfair treatment from ‘former’ Betnow casino players. I found that four out of five times the problem arose because the terms and conditions were not fully understood.
Betnow Payment Methods
Betnow casino offers reliable payment alternatives to its customers. I usually use a debit card or e-wallet to fund my account. So, I was happy to see that Betnow accepts MasterCard, Visa, and American Express. If you are using any of these options to fund your account, know that only transaction values between $20 and $1,000 will be honoured. Availability of these services also depends on your customer level.
I have been noting, with great interest, the rise of bitcoin as a payment services provider. Even with its violent swings recently, it seems there is no turning back on this, and it really must be going all the way to the moon. For now, it seems Betnow casino is accepting two tokens, Bitcoin and Bitcash. You can use these to fund your account and also request payouts. Transactions in Bitcoin start from just $10, and you can deposit as much as $40,000.
Payments are implemented automatically, and the utmost care is put into ensuring that these systems do what they are intended to do. But sometimes they don’t. In the off chance that this happens, Betnow casino has set up a dedicated deposits toll free hotline. You can call and customer support agents will help you out.
Playing on the go
I always bet on mobile, I have found that it suits my schedule and general preferences. This might not be for you, but if you are like me, then this Betnow review will be valuable.
The Betnow app is a mobile web service that you can access without a download. This app sits on your browser and takes up considerably less storage space than native apps. I used an Android device while researching for this review. But even with an iPhone, you can also achieve a perfect lift off in Betnow casino.
I used the app in the sportsbook. I wanted to see how it would fare on my device and also to try out the casino’s prop builder. This is an awesome tool that allows you to select the player, what you want to wager on, and the outcome you are hoping for. After a few missions with the app, I can’t call myself an expert prop builder, but it is something that everyone betting on Betnow needs to try. We will discuss more on this feature in the following section.
This section is dedicated to informing you about the many capabilities your rocket has. Let’s be honest, where you are going, you will need all the help you can get. You can call upon these tools at any time to give you the maximum advantage. Let’s engage.
Lifetime VIP – Rewards as far as the eyes can see
This may seem like a promotion, and may have been better placed earlier in the review. But if a promotion runs for life, I believe it qualifies to be considered as a feature of the casino.
The Life Time VIP scheme is a program that seeks to promote repeated, consistent, and long-term use of casino products. Betnow casino offers a life-time bonus cash allotment on all deposits, for life. The offer comes in two waves. You get the first one when you reach $500 in lifetime deposits. This will earn you 10% bonus cash on all reloads. This is bumped up to 15% when your lifetime deposits tally hits $1,000.
Now, I have included this offer because the notion of always getting a little something extra appeals to me. It is unlike the loyalty rewards offers, which might be removed from your account if your status does the meteor. This is for life. However, the Lifetime VIP Bonus is wagered. This brought me down to earth a bit as I had assumed you could instantly walk out with your earnings. But at just 3x, chances are you can make it work.
The Betnow Prop Builder – Play your own game
Many have come to consider the Betnow sports betting app as the market leader. In many ways, you can compare it to others. Take the Resorts promo code, for example. You can stack it up with the one in Betnow and point out pros and cons for each. But where you will find this app excelling without question is in the sportsbook.
Some of this intergalactic appeal is thanks to the prop bet builder. A proposition bet is placed on an aspect of the game that has no direct link to the outcome. So, you can wager that Greenwood will score and win, but Manchester United can end up losing the match.
With the prop bet builder you can create your own bets, not just use the ones provided by Betnow. Talk about a cosmic experience. This not only adds to the fun, but it also allows you to wager on odds you are comfortable with.
Unmatched Customer Support – A tow truck when you need it
I know you won’t be calling a tow truck in space, well maybe a tow-ship; if such a thing exists. But you can call upon friendly customer support personnel when you need to. Getting help in Betnow casino couldn’t have been easier even if they tried.
The ‘Contact Us’ tab is in the top right-hand corner. Clicking on this button will give you the casino’s toll-free line. You can use it to talk to real customer support agents.
Betnow has a very heavy presence on social media. You can also engage support and even get the latest promotional offers there. I browsed the casino’s blog and found helpful articles on many topics. I was glad to see that the site had fresh articles, some uploaded the very day I visited. It looks like someone is paying attention to it, which is always a good sign.
