What Makes a Sportsbook Great? Consistency.
When it comes down to choosing an online sportsbook, whether for added value during college football bowl season, or during the NFL Playoffs, the most important factor is the integrity of the sportsbook and financial stability.
Before any bells and whistles or neat features, players need to have the utmost confidence that the sportsbook has a long history of doing right by players and processing payouts in a timely manner without defaulting on an obligation.
While processing problems can occur and have slowed down some sportsbooks over the years, the industry's best sportsbooks serving North Americans have all made the transition to the digital currency bitcoin to provide a better user experience. These sportsbooks are indexed by SBR along with full walk-throughs of their software and detailed information about their platforms.
The sportsbooks considered overall best have operated at least seven years and are all open to discussing player feedback with third parties including Sportsbook Review. In a competitive time in the sports betting industry, the sportsbooks have continued to innovate through responsive (mobile-friendly) designs providing a good user experience, adding a variety of sports markets including international focused options, and competitive bonus or reduced juice lines programs.
At the end of the day, what makes a sportsbook great? Consistency. The same thing that makes an employer great: Getting paid on time, not having to worry about whether you will be able to fulfill your obligations because you expect to be paid on or before a certain date. It is also the same as what makes couriers great - receiving a delivery on time or before the expected date. Players should not have to worry about if they will get paid, but rather, how they can improve their handicapping through using tools and expanding their knowledge with other sports cappers in the Handicapper Think Tank Forum.
