Que. “I GET CALLS FROM A SPORTSBOOK PROMISING RIDICULOUS BONUSES LIKE A 100% ‘WELCOME BONUS,’ WITH NO WAGERING REQUIREMENTS, AND 5% JUICE. IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE?”

GAMBLINGMAN

Ans. All that glitters is not gold. Be suspicious when a sportsbook pormises you everything. It’s very unlikely for a book to be able to give you the best bonuses, fastest payouts, and 5% juice all at once. Pass on any sportsbook that appears to offer too much. Be wary if they say there’s no rollover requirement. Experienced bettors know that nothing comes for free. Contact ChiefBrand if you need to verify the claims of a sportsbook.

Que. “I USED A CREDIT CARDS FOR A DEPOSIT. NOW, THE SPORTSBOOK IS ASKING FOR MORE INFORMATION AND A SECURITY FORM. IS THIS NORMAL?”

FINANCIALWIZARD54

Ans. Financial transactions are a delicate matter. It is important to establish identity. Open a bank account, and you’ll need to provide proof of your identity and evidence of your place of residence. The same is true for a well-established offshore sportsbook. Identity theft is a serious threat to any online transaction today, and whenever you’re dealing with money, security is a top priority at a world class sportsbook. Keep in mind that these requirements are for your safety. Once you scan your ID and card, or fax it to your sportsbook, you won’t have to worry about it later.

Que. “SO MANY SPORTSBOOK, SO LITTLE TIME. WHICH ONE’S BEST FOR ME?”

Ans. There are several reputable sportsbook online. We only recommend a few of these. We feel it is best to go with the top 1 or 2 rated sportsbook, rather than experiment with several others.Here’s a look at some of the most important factors chiefbrand.com uses to rate the top sportsbook:

  1. YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

There’s no advantage to going with a brand new sportsbook. There’s a good reason why some sportsbooks have been in business for several years and are still in business today. These companies know what they’re doing. You will see a level of professionalism right away.

  1. FAST PAYOUTS

When you win, you’ll be wanting that payoff. A well-run sportsbook can deliver, quickly. A local guy may make you wait.

  1. QUALITY CUSTOMER SERVICE (PHONE OR ONLINE)

When you play offshore, if you have questions or concerns, you want round-the-clock assistance. Your sportsbook should offer you 24/7 top-of-the customer support. chiefbrand.com feels all online gamblers deserve great customer service.

  1. BONUSES/GAMBLER’S INSURANCE

Your sportsbook should offer you-at the very least-a sign-up bonus and more importantly, reload bonuses on every deposit. Skip those sportsbooks that only offer reload bonuses at special times or on certain days of the week. You have a choice. It’s not possible to be a winner all of the time.

Que. “I WANT TO TRY A NEW SPORTBOOK THIS SEASON. IF I DON’T LIKE THEM, CAN I STILL GET MY MONEY BACK?”

BONUSBOY

Ans. The key is research. Learn everything you can about this new company before you make any decisions. Read our “picking a winner.” Check out “when is it time to switch Sportsbook?” If you are still apprehensive after reading that, consider starting out with a smaller deposit at your sportsbook. If you’re not 100% sure, start slow. Instead of a dime, send a nickel. There’s nothing wrong with using 2 or even 3 sportsbook for football season. It’s practical to use a primary account, and another account as a second option, to shop for the best possible lines.
