To say that Bookmaker.eu is one of the originals is somewhat of an understatement. It’s been a well-known name in the gaming industry for many, many years, having started out with land-based operations in 1996. And while it didn’t move to the online world until 2011, the history of its owners dates back to the 1970s. Today, you’ll find that many of the other online sportsbooks won’t even open a betting line until Bookmaker.eu oddsmakers have established the number. The company is homed in San Jose, Costa Rica and although it doesn’t hold a specific licence due to the country not offering such, it does offer a reputable and popular location for United States-based gamblers to place bets on various different sporting events. This is something that is decidedly difficult to achieve, as the USA is notorious for its anti-gambling laws.
When it comes to the Bookmaker.eu website, you’ll find that everything is designed in an exceptionally professional way. Black makes up the scrolling header background, which is then fronted by vibrant white and yellow text. There’s six different navigation links across the top of the home page, allowing you to access the sportsbook, casino, racebook, poker and a couple of reward-based sections of the site. Advertisements below this can be seen for mobile betting and live betting, and as soon as you make your way to the sportsbook section of the platform, you’re presented with a very easy-to-use interface, featuring the various different sports on offer down the left hand side.
One of the links across the top is that of the ‘Promotions’, and this will allow you to see all of the valid current and ongoing offers. For those gamers who are new to the site, there’s a welcome bonus to take advantage of, which is available once you’ve made your first deposit. All that you need to do is join the platform and you can receive a 50% welcome sports bonus and a 50% casino bonus, which provides you with up to $300 in bonus funds for each. Alternatively, if you’re more interested in solely betting on the sports events, you can take advantage of the sportsbook welcome bonus. This presents you with a 15% bonus on top of your first deposit, up to $2,500 – and this comes with only a four times rollover. Simply enter the promo code, JOIN15 when depositing.
There’s also three reload bonuses to join this one, which depends upon your VIP status. All customers are considered gold level upon opening an account at the site, and any customer making a first time deposit of $900 or more get instant platinum status. Both gold and platinum level players are able to receive a 10% free-play every time you reload funds into your account, while diamond players get 15% on top. And as far as the VIP program goes, you’ll receive BetPoints every time you bet in the sports, casino or poker games available on the platform. The more you play, the more rewards you earn.
