Welcome to the most complete collection of betting site reviews in the USA. We monitor and report on online gambling developments and add new sportsbook reviews on a regular basis.
The United States is undergoing a massive expansion in online sports betting and gambling, and new betting sites are launching all the time. We move quickly to study, research, and review legal betting sites as new operators launch.
Longstanding federal laws and recent developments on the legislative front have opened new opportunities for online gaming and sports betting.
All betting sites reviewed or recommended at BettingUSA.com are licensed and legal right here in the United States.
It’s important to note each state in the USA has its own set of laws. A patchwork of federal and state laws results in some US betting sites being legal in some states but not in others.
Two of our other key missions here at BettingUSA.com are to explain the gaming laws of every US state in plain English and then to recommend betting sites that are legal in each state.
You can see which betting sites are legal in your state by clicking here and choosing your state or by visiting any of the following reviews for a list of states from which they accept customers.

What to Expect from Our Betting Site Reviews
BettingUSA is committed to providing reviews of betting sites that are unbiased and focused on information rather than promotional in nature.
We aim to provide straightforward information so you can make a decision based on facts, not on opinion.
With that in mind, each of our betting site reviews is structured to provide background information and licensing details of each operator.
Each review dives into all the unique details at each online sportsbook. Our reviews discuss the average quality of odds offered, welcome bonuses and promotions, accepted deposit methods, average payout speed and the states in which each betting site is active.
We also discuss state-specific considerations for each sportsbook.
For example, we note the states in which each operator has partnerships in place with local casinos to operate retail sportsbooks. The ultimate goal is to make every one of our betting site reviews comprehensive in nature so you can make a fully informed decision prior to signing up and depositing.
Earning the BettingUSA Seal of Approval
The BettingUSA seal of approval marks online betting sites that are confirmed to be licensed, safe, reputable and responsible operators in the states they operate in.
BettingUSA discusses, reviews and provides updates on all legal betting operators in the United States. If an operator is approved in any US jurisdiction, BettingUSA has either already reviewed that operator or will do so soon as a resource to readers across the country.
However, even in the regulated US market, quality among operators is far from uniform and not all earn the BettingUSA seal of approval.
BettingUSA only issues its seal of approval to operators that meet or exceed the following criteria:
Licensed by the State
BettingUSA.com only reviews or recommends licensed betting sites and mobile sportsbooks.
Sports betting is a highly regulated activity in the United States and all operators must have the blessing of the state gaming commission (or equivalent) in every state in which they operate.
Betting sites that operate in the US without proper licensing violate multiple state and federal laws in doing so.
On the other hand, operators that are properly licensed provide a sense of security in knowing that they have been vetted by regulators for financial security, adherence to consumer protection regulations and more.
Most states with legal online betting maintain an active list of licensed operators on the state’s gaming regulator website. BettingUSA attempts to verify the licensing status of every operator in nearly every state.
Although a valid sports betting license is a strong indicator of a clean reputation, it is not a guarantee of consumer-friendly conduct or player-friendly policies.
In addition to verifying each operator’s licensing status, BettingUSA investigates the background of every betting site with special attention paid to:
- Sanctions resulting from past violations of gaming regulations
- Average withdrawal processing times – how quickly winners are paid
- Volume of customer complaints: complaints filed with regulators or posted to social media
- Operator’s history in other regulated markets, both domestically and abroad
Commitment to Responsible Gambling
The online sports betting industry is exciting and rewarding, but BettingUSA understands the risks and challenges presented by problem gambling. As such, BettingUSA only issues its seal of approval to operators that place a similar level of importance on responsible gambling.
Mobile sports betting operators play a critical role in advancing problem gambling, and they can support the cause with simple but effective safeguards such as:
- Easy-to-implement features that allow customers to set limits regarding how much they deposit or wager and how long they may be logged in to their betting accounts
- Internal policies that monitor for signs of problem gambling such as recent increases in betting volume, uncharacteristically large deposits and reaching out to customers who may display signs of a potential gambling problem
- Voluntary self-exclusion programs that allow customers to close their accounts temporarily or permanently and opt out of promotional communications (e-mail, text, etc.)
- Easy-to-access problem gambling resources for customers in each state
Quality Customer Support
Sports betting law in the US does not directly order betting sites to provide quality customer support. Minimum standards regarding dispute resolution apply in some states, but generally this aspect of operations is left to each operator’s appetite for providing quality customer support.
Therefore, BettingUSA takes customer support into consideration when evaluating operators for a seal of approval. At a minimum, betting sites must provide two of the following contact methods, and respond to inquiries within 24 hours.
- 24/7 e-mail support
- Live chat during business hours
- Phone support during business hours
- Respond to inquiries within 24 hours
- US-based customer support
US betting sites must provide a minimum level of technical security to earn the BettingUSA seal of approval. Certain security measures (such as locking one’s computer when away) are the responsibility of the customer but some are the responsibility of the operator.
At a minimum, betting websites must provide encrypted SSL communication. That means the website operates on a domain that begins with https rather than http, indicating communications between the customer and sportsbook are encrypted.
Even better are operators that offer voluntary two-factor authentication (2FA) login security.
When two-factor authorization is enabled, customers either download a specialized authenticator app or receive a text message that displays a unique, one-time-use code to be used when logging in. This protects customer accounts, even in the case of a compromised password.
Reasonable Terms and Conditions
Even if a betting site follows the letter of the law, terms and conditions can make or break the customer’s experience. BettingUSA only issues its seal of approval to operators that refrain from enforcing unreasonable terms and conditions such as:
- Large minimum withdrawal amounts that make it difficult for small stakes bettors to claim their winnings
- Excessive, complicated or sneaky bonus wagering requirements
- Predatory “dormant account” clauses in which operators reserve the right to close customers’ accounts and seize their funds without ample notice
- Any other terms and conditions that BettingUSA deems predatory
