Top Online Sport Books

We have compiled a list of the most reputable online sports betting web sites on the internet for your surfing convenience. All of the following sports books are fair and reliable, update their lines frequently, are easy to use and provide promt customer feedback.

1. VIP Sports

VIP Sports is among the world's best Sportsbooks for all size stakes players who seek a combination of excellent customer service, Book stability and clean, easy- to- use betting screens. Based in the Dutch Antilles, VIP operates under one of the most strict gaming license in the world. They are required to post cash in escrow equal to the size of all wagers. Their ultra secure socket III, 128-bit encryption provides an unsurpassed level of security. VIP has developed the software that many Sportsbooks now license, and they continue to lead in technology investment. You can securely place a wager from $5 to $100,000 on a single event. Selected parlay odds are improved. Management has obviously placed priority on courteous customer service, as the VIP Sports name would indicate.

VIP Sports continues rank at the top of our customer service surveys and has one of the highest customer retention rates in the business. The player friendly rules such as free withdraws, .10 baseball lines, a generous ongoing rewards program and a "country club" style of customer service are the reasons we commonly hear in customer surveys.

2. World Wide Tele Sports

For ten years WWTS has enjoyed being the favorite book of the larger player. Run by General Manager George Samuel, WWTS may be one of the last books left for the professional player. In today's sportsbook world, if you are a constant winner you will probably get a call asking you to change your wager style or you might even be labeled "talent". In the latter case, your account will be closed and if your with a book like NASA or Horizon you will probably forfeit all bonuses received.

Enter WWTS, where these type of games are simply never played. They built there business on the simplest of concepts "Bottom Line...We Pay" and they do. With over 150 highly trained clerks manning the phones WWTS falls into the super heavy weight division of sportsbooks.

While WWTS in recent years has made an attempt to appeal to the moderate size stakes player. However, we recommend this book strictly for the larger player. Their operation is geared toward the larger player and quite frankly, a moderate to smaller player will do better elsewhere.

3. SportingbetUSA.com

/

SportingbetUSA.com is a publicly traded company run by honest, highly respected management which includes gaming top manager, Mark Blandford. With well over $1 million wagered per week, SportingbetUSA is among the super heavyweights of sportsbooks. But unlike many in this class which typically have poor customer service and poor bonus programs, SportingbetUSA actually does very well at both. The site has received considerable investment recently.

This is the perfect book for the casual player who wants a book with unquestioned stability. They do not offer many of the more exotic lines serious players typically seek. This keeps the betting screens simple and very user friendly. The phone staff is exceptionally well trained as you would expect from a Mark Blandford operation.

Sports Interaction Sportsbook is the first online sportsbook to be fully licensed and regulated in North America. No other sportsbook offers the security of knowing you are betting with a world leader which is located in North America and which is subject to Las Vegas type regulation overseen by the local Gaming Commission. We believe Sports Interaction to be a great sports betting service which is simple to use, convenient and safe.

5. Victor Chandler's Superbook

A recommended Sportsbook list would be incomplete if it did not include Victor Chandler's Superbook. In a business where it is difficult to find a respected owner, this book has the most honest and successful ownership group we know of with a track record dating back to 1946. They have an attractive, no hassle site which in many ways emulates the way they conduct business.

This Sportbook prides itself on customer service. A reputation which seems well deserved. The Superbook mainly caters to and pampers the intermediate to larger stakes player. The web site is well laid out, attractive and easy to use. Designed for ease of use and speed we rate their clean, crisp betting screens and web site among the best if not the best. Online account information is well detailed, an area which most books continue to overlook. This book is easily one of the top managed books. The staff is well trained and always courteous without heavy accents.
