SportsBetting.com is officially the new kid on the betting block. The site is is live in Colorado, launching Sept. 18. This will mark the start of SportsBetting.com’s expansion across the US. Owned by the Carousel Group, this online sportsbook is looking to expand into all states with legal online sports betting.
Using an in-house team, it’s developed some innovative software. On top of this, we’ve been told to expect odds on 10,000+ sporting events each month.
The sportsbook is available for iOS and Android, offering lines on everything from NFL to international sports. New players also qualify for one of the best bonus offers available. When you join SportsBetting.com through PlayUSA, you qualify for a 100% deposit match bonus up to a maximum of $1,000 in free bet credits.
You can find those details below along with what to expect from the newest sports betting site in US betting.
SportsBetting.com is legal in Colorado, initially. The company has partnered with Johnny Nolan’s Casino and been approved for a license by the Colorado Division of Gaming. Carousel Group CEO Graetzer said he’s already eyeing up other states.
By all accounts, Carousel has grand plans to make a mark in the sports betting world at large. This means it’s likely to become an active player in all US states with sports betting regulations, as well as countries across Europe.

The SportsBetting software is covers all bases. To cater to casuals and sports betting pros, the sportsbook works on all devices. Secondly, there needs to be a combination of odds and insights. Seasoned sports bettors want all the latest stats, results and betting data. Novices want tips, game overviews and blog updates.
The software is optimized to work on all devices.
On a technical level, the site uses “state-of-the-art encryption” technology, “world-class data security,” “sharp odds” and responsible gaming features. These features are wrapped in a “proprietary” platform. Carousel Group CEO Daniel Graetzer said everything his company does is “innovative” and SportsBetting.com will be no different.
Carousel Group is a holding company that invests in and manages B2C companies. One of its subsidiaries is CG Solutions. This has a base in Europe and, as well as creating software for SportsBetting.com, the implication is that it will provide B2B solutions. Having a base in Europe is great because, as big as the US is, countries such as the UK are still industry leaders. Therefore, to be on the ground in the world’s proverbial sports betting hub is a huge advantage.
Something else that’s significant is the fact that SportsBetting.com will use its own software and in-house odds team. That’s unique. Even some of the leading online sports betting brands don’t do those things. PokerStars and Betfair, for example, are part of Flutter Entertainment. This means they dip into the same pool of resources.
Then you’ve got B2B sports betting software providers like GVC and odds engines from the likes of SBTech and Kambi. These companies are great and power many of the best online sportsbooks. However, it does mean there are crossovers and similarities in certain areas.
If SportsBetting.com is going to make all of its own software and set betting lines in-house, it will be unique. That’s something to look forward to as we may see new takes on old ideas or, as Carousel CEO Graetzer said, some innovative products.
SportsBetting.com has released its iOS app, and expects to continue improving it over time.
Android users to do not have a native app yet. For the time being, you can download geoguard on your Android mobile device and use the platform via the mobile browser by going to our secure SportsBetting.com sign-up link.
We will update with news of future app releases. But Android users are able to get close to the same experience as Apple users as the mobile browser version works well on both phones and tablets.
SportsBetting.com offers odds on over 10,000 events across more than 19 sports each month. The pre-launch preamble provides a glimpse into the sports we can expect to see odds for:
Scrolling through the company’s Twitter feed, there seems to be a particular focus on soccer, football and MMA. Although these sports may have been newsworthy when we wrote this SportsBetting.com review, it does suggest they feature heavily in the betting lobby. That makes sense from a general perspective. Football is arguably the top sport in the US, and soccer is the biggest sport worldwide. Add to this MMA as the rising star, and it makes a nice trio.
What’s also nice to see is that SportsBetting.com offers odds on niche sports. By covering things like cycling, darts and badminton, it shows the team wants to go the extra mile. Again, it takes us back to the idea that SportsBetting wants to appeal to novices and professionals.
We also noted that the Carousel Group is planning to launch RaceBook.com. Exactly when and where this site will go live is unclear. However, the fact it’s launching a sportsbook dedicated to horse racing tells us that SportsBetting.com will also be hot on the sport of kings.
Odds boosts were available during initial launch, and while they are not a permanent feature they do often appear on the site. For example, odds boost was available for two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl.
Sportsbetting.com also provides regular promotions, which you can find in the promo tab of the platform.
Reading through comments about SportsBetting.com, we know odds are a point of focus. A representative for the site has said the in-house team will be working to make added value a priority. The team wants to cast a wide net and appeal to a broad spectrum of sports fans. Therefore, the in-house odds makers are working to make sure their lines match or beat the industry average.
SportsBetting.com promises fast payouts, but it also says you’ll have to wait between three and five days to receive your winnings. That’s not a huge amount of time. In fact, it’s in line with industry standards. However, it’s not what we would call fast.
Having said that, you can be confident your funds will always be safe. As a licensed operator, SportsBetting.com follows strict guidelines with regard to processing and storing player funds. Additionally, we know the site is going to feature the latest SSL encryption technology.
Finally, the company is backed by an insurance policy. This is there to protect all funds and ensure all wins, no matter how big, are paid out. You can make deposits and withdrawals using the following processors:
SportsBetting.com is active on Twitter (@WeSportsBetting), Facebook (@sportsbettingcom) and Instagram (@sportsbettingcom). Its onsite customer support service isn’t operational yet. However, you can contact the Carousel Group via its homepage if you have any questions before SportsBetting.com launches.
SportsBetting.com certainly talks a good game. As industry experts, we’ve seen plenty of upstarts make promises they couldn’t keep. However, SportsBetting.com seems to have its affairs in order. It’s already secured a license in Colorado as well as with the UK Gambling Commission and Malta Gaming Authority.
To get a license from these regulators, particularly the UKGC, is no mean feat. So, based on this alone, we know the site is going to be legit and of a decent standard. If the company can deliver on its promises, then it could easily become an industry leader. The preregistration promotion is impressive, as is the fact that you can get free bets before the site is live.
We also like that SportsBetting.com will use its own software and sets its own betting lines. When you combine this with thousands of monthly betting options, it’s hard not to get excited. Indeed, if its walk is as good as its talk, SportsBetting.com could be a fantastic addition to the US sports betting scene.
