    I think this book has a chance to rise to the top shelf if they can maintain the energy and focus and a keen sense of fair play.

    We have seen books in the past put tremendous effort and money behind them but run out of steam and start nickle and diming players.

    This book has the talent, has the money and infrastructure. They are in the "comers" group that would include Matchbook, Legendz to name a couple.

    Time will tell and its their time to tell.

    I donīt think so, they want losers only and people who have no clue. After the ban many small timers who never line shop etc have stopped gambling, they wonīt get enough players if they keep up their policy.

    Legendz is possible iīd agree with that, the Pig is good.

    Thats kind of what I was eluding to Zero. That and a heavy hand in bonus disputes. They are going to be aggressive with bonuses.

    I met with them recently and they have changed their stance on sharp action. They are going to allow far more. We will wait for the reports from players.

    This post makes it sound like you have given them an A- rating, and a spot on your recommended list - based upon potential and not current status.

    You say they have "a chance to rise to the top shelf" but yet SBR ranks them already on the top shelf.

    Matchbook has actually been doing it for over 3 years now and they are labelled a "comer" while this book went from a C to an A- in 5 months based on potential?

    Look, its your site, your ratings, and you do a service for all of us. Im just voicing an opinion here that I cant help but think something is wrong here. Betonline didnt get a single vote in the user poll, which puts them at least 33rd, and Matchbook is second.

    I cant see a single category where Betonline would be ranked higher than MB. MB has been around longer, has lower juice, is backed by wsex, is in Antigua, has never had a payout issue in at least 3 years, is 2nd on the users poll, and is well known. What is the argument for betonline ahead of MB?

    I started this thread to understand and after 35 posts I still have yet to understand.

    A- is too good, considering books like Centrebet or the Jazz group who have been solid and 100% save for ages are only B+, i agree..
    after all it means Elite, and i would never say that about the Best Line group...never.

    They rented space from BOS in the mall and were in Panama for two years before BOS stiffed everyone.

    The first I heard of them was they were all over mark lawrences playbook review this year. I checked here and the rating was good. I may give them a chance since I can hit up their bonus and play football against them. But then again Mark Lawrence touted rockisland sports as a good book too.

    John, I see that they still have the casino game Let it Ride paying 150-1 for a royal flush when it should pay 1000-1 like the majority of DGS casino software books (5 Dimes, Cris, etc.) Not trying to stir things up, but they offer no valid explanation. With no explanation, it makes the average Joe think they are ripping the player off. For the naysayers that say "just don't play there then" valid point, but why would they want to offer such piss poor odds if they were such a fair book?
    The kicker is before they changed to DGS software, the other software provider paid the correct odds.

    pretty decent site

    After the payout fiasco at sportsbook.com in april, which was a great wagering site before post neteller, I decided to try out this new betonline.com site who recently changed it's name from bestlinesports. All I gotta to say is the payout is pretty fast. Had an ACH withdrawl recieved within 5 days, once I had my credit card verification paper work faxed and taken care of. The website is pretty nice looking and easy to navigate, but I still think sportsbook.com website is A+ as far webpages looks goes. I guess nowadays, decent customer service and FAST PAY equals an A rating. Hopefully they'll stay in business and last!

    Guys BetOnline may work for sports betting but DO NOT DABBLE IN THE CASINO!!!!

    A friend and I spent the last few hours going through the blackjack scheme they've devised over there... We literally called out the cards that would appear! Going 6 for 6 is impressive for a magician... But this is seriously what happened. They have their entire card playing game selection rigged so that you lose at least 66% of the time, and oh my god never expect them to bust... I'm sorry to sound so drastic but I'm an honest person, and I know what is right and what is wrong... this wasn't chance. I put almost a grand into the place and it repeatedly screwed me over. DON'T. DON'T. DON'T. DON'T. DON'T. DO IT.

    that was a BetOnline representative... and they proceeded to tell me they were really busy and couldn't talk to me at the time. About 8 times. They seriously suck so I hope that somebody reads this and makes the right decision to NOT go to their site.

    they are solid and have played with them for awhile with no problem, they are as solid as it comes to the offshores in the current environment.........I wouldnt lay the casino, I believe all offshore casino payout are poors and in some cases rigged anyway so why play them anyway if you know they are flawed. Go to your local casino at least you know your getting a fair shake

    Ask them to turn the casino off, just play sports at the offshores
