GTBets Review

GTBets is one of a select number of sports betting sites that accept bets from Americans. If you can’t tell by the site’s exclusive use of English, its insistence on the American dollar should seal the deal – GTBETs is designed with American customers in mind.

That does mean you won’t find a wide array of obscure international sports available for bets, but instead you’ll find bonuses and other incentives designed to focus attention on the “big four” American professional sports. GTBets doesn’t have much experience in the industry, premiering less than five years ago. It looks to me like they’re using genial bonus terms and a focus on sportsbook-starved American customers to build a reputation.

Bonuses & Promotions

While I like the four bonuses listed below (as optimized for sports bettors), I don’t care for the rollover system used by the site. All of the bonuses on the site follow a point system as described on this page. It’s more complex than the standard bonus multiplier system used at other sites, and I’m not sure what benefit it really adds.

Here’s a brief description of each of the bonuses aimed at American sports bettor:

Sign-Up Bonus

When you make your first deposit to the site, you can earn a deposit match worth 100 you’re your deposit up to a maximum of $500. The minimum deposit to earn this bonus is $35.

Reload Bonus

Every time you reload your account with at least $50, you will earn a 5% deposit match bonus worth up to $50. The site promises this reload bonus as a “lifetime guarantee.”

Referral Bonus

For every friend you refer, you can earn 20% of their first qualifying deposit up to a total of $500. The triggering deposit must be at least $100, and you must claim your referral bonus within seven days of the referred friend’s deposit.

Racebook Rebate

You can earn a rebate of as much as 15% of your net monthly losses in GTBets’ racebook. Take note that racebook bets made via mobile devices don’t count toward your rebate or toward any rollover requirements.

Design & Interface

I don’t usually talk much about features like color schemes and fonts, but I want to mention right away that I think GTBets is one of the uglier sportsbooks I’ve reviewed. It’s not a huge deal – I’d guess most sports bettors don’t think twice about the way a site looks – but it’s worth mentioning. The orange and blue color scheme makes the site look more like a bad travel agent’s blog than a bookmaker. The fonts aren’t just elementary-looking, they’re sometimes difficult to read. I can’t identify the font, but it hits my eyes the same way as Comic Sans, and that’s not a good thing.

But outside of those complaints, I think the overall user interface and design experience is pleasant enough. I was able to navigate between various types of bets and markets with no trouble. The bet slip is a little busy, since all events and lines are available at a single click, rather than being listed in separate tabs or text fields.

Markets are listed on the left – when you click one, a list of available wagers pops up in the center of the screen. I like the special “calculate” button on the bet slip – a feature that adds up your bets for you so you can see your total at a glance. Most of the world’s best online books do this automatically, but GTBets isn’t one of those sites. The option to calculate a total is nice, even if it’s standard-issue at the big names in the business.

I’m also impressed by GTBets’ live betting options, especially considering they launched just four years ago. The list of available markets doesn’t come close to rivalling the world’s biggest and best-reviewed sportsbooks, but it is on par with the better US-facing online books.

On the day I visited the site, they had live basketball, baseball, soccer, and tennis events on the schedule, the same as better-known American-facing sites like Bovada and BetOnline. In terms of game selection, GTBets’ live betting is as good as any US-facing site right now. I’m not too crazy about the standard increased juice for live bets – as much as -125 – and the tight range of betting limits on live games, which is $500 on sides and $250 on totals.

Available Betting Markets


GTBets is a funny little sportsbook – it’s attached to a casino and racebook, but not to a poker room or any other gambling service. It’s not exactly an “all-in-one” site, since the sportsbook is by far the most valuable and important section of the site. GTBets offers four excellent bonuses for sportsbook and racebook bettors.

Because the site is open to bettors from the United States, a big deal for American sportsbook customers, I have to give them a bit of a pass on my (mostly-minor) criticisms above. I suggest you give GTBets a look if only for their highly-attainable bonuses and willingness to accept deposits and pay withdrawals to American bettors.
