BetOnline was established early on, before the big change in legislation took place in the U.S., in 2001. They started out small and have now become a very well-known and recognized name when it comes to online sportsbooks. This online sportsbook is licensed and regulated through the Government of Panama; which incidentally is also where they are headquartered, in Panama City. BetOnline is best known for its amazing sportsbook and the sports betting services it provides; however, they have expanded into an online casino, poker room, and they even have a racebook. The U.S. friendly sportsbook have the latest news and matchups of a wide variety of sports, including the NFL for those football fans.
The BetOnline website is very dynamic, and it makes it very easy for the sports bettors to pick and choose which sports they want to view or follow. As soon as a bettor enters the sportsbook, they are bombarded with the latest news, betting lines, and upcoming matches of the most popular matchups. The website has a function where the bettor can pick one or more sports they would want to follow. The general information can be found using this method, such as date and time of the match, along with the different odds and betting types that are available for the bettor to wager on. The one downside of having such a dynamic and informational website is that it lacks aesthetics; as it looks a little overcrowded.
The sportsbook also has many other functions that are there to help the bettor before, during, and after they place a bet. They have links explaining the different wagering terms and betting types, as well as having a very extensive Stats Center and the Sports Betting edge; which is a news section. All of these services are provided by BetOnline, for free.

The more popular sports would have to include Baseball, Basketball, and Football; with Soccer and Boxing coming in as close seconds. There are other great sports like Hockey and Rugby, which are different in how they are played, but are similar in the fact that they are highly competitive.
