Bet America

Bet America

Horse racing specialist BetAmerica launched its online sportsbook in New Jersey in February 2019. It operates on the license of the Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic Lines and it is available to anyone that wants to bet on sports within New Jersey state lines. BetAmerica was founded in 2007 and it carved out a strong reputation for its market leading horse racing offering, but it has also enjoyed plenty of success since branching out into other sports.


Churchill Downs Inc. owns BetAmerica. The firm has evolved from one famous racetrack in Louisville, Kentucky – home of the Kentucky Derby, the biggest annual race in the United States – into a multi-state, publicly traded company with various racetracks and casinos, plus a burgeoning online offering. It purchased BetAmerica in 2017, using the brand to spearhead its online racing offering, and it then branched out into sports wagering too. Chruchill Downs Inc. launched its first retail sportsbooks in Mississippi in 2018, so it had experience in the sports betting sector before launching in New Jersey in February 2019.

What Software is BetAmerica Run on?

Churchill Downs Inc. appointed the award-winning white-label sportsbook provider SBTech to power its BetAmerica sports betting site. Many of the leading sports betting operators in Europe have chosen SBTech to provide sportsbook solutions due to the range, depth and quality of its offering. However, it does not have too many clients in the United States, meaning that BetAmerica has a real point of difference compared to its competitors in New Jersey. BetAmerica also has an online casino platform featuring both slot and table games from providers such as IGT PlayDigital, NetEnt, Spin Games, Everi and Konami.

Does BetAmerica Offer Any Promotions on Sign up?

If you sign up for a new account at BetAmerica, you are entitled to a 100% bonus on your first deposit. This offer is valid up to $100, so a $100 deposit would leave you with $200 to play with. An alternative welcome offer it is promoting is billed as a Risk Free Bet Up To $1,000 promotion. To claim this welcome offer, opt into the promotion and place a wager that will settle within seven days of opening your account. If your qualifying bet does not win, BetAmerica will refund you with up to $1,000 in bonus funds.

There is also a bet $5, get $20 offer that you can take advantage of. Additionally, it will give you a $20 bonus bet on your first live, in-play wager of $20. There are parlay boosts too – 3% on a two-selection parlay and 5% on a parlay with three or more selections. The odds on each leg must be +100 or greater to qualify. The sheer breadth of intriguing promotions shows just how competitive the New Jersey sports betting market is and how keen BetAmerica is to stand out, which is great news for bettors.

What Sports Can You Bet on at BetAmerica?

When you land on the BetAmerica Sportsbook home page, you will see a list of popular bets on the left of the screen. These include big games in the major sports leagues, such as NFL, NCAAF, NBA, NHL, MLB and Premier League. Then a menu lists the top sports in order of popularity: football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, MMA, boxing, golf, tennis, motor racing, cricket, darts, cycling and rugby union.

It is interesting to see BetAmerica covering sports like cricket, rugby and darts, which are generally a lot more popular in Europe than the US. That reflects SB Tech’s status as a European company, and it makes BetAmerica an excellent choice for anyone from Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and so on that happens to be living in the US. BetAmerica covers all the big US games and many smaller ones, but it is also great to see it covering leagues from around the world.

Hockey fans can bet on games taking place in Russia, for example, while you can find soccer betting lines from across the globe. Soccer in countries like Montenegro, China and Latvia is covered. You are not confined to wagering on just the top division either, as it also covers the lower leagues in many countries.

There is also a selection called Super Odds, which offers boosted odds on popular sports like football and MMA. You can find plenty of futures lines, and some exciting live sports options. It all means that BetAmerica’s sporting coverage is a lot deeper than the majority of its rivals.

Can You Bet on Horse Racing at BetAmerica?

Very much so. In fact, you are unlikely to find a better racebook in America. Horse racing is BetAmerica’s main speciality, as it is owned by Churchill Downs Inc, a name synonymous with racing.

There is live video streaming to take advantage of, and you can build plenty of exciting bets on its comprehensive betting slip.

Within a big NFL game, you will find classic markets like moneyline, spread and total points, plus many more props.

All the popular options are there – result, total goals and so on – but you will also find a wealth of Asian handicap lines, booking bets, Asian fouls lines, offside betting, correct scores, double chance, both teams to score, half-time / full-time, first, last and anytime goalscorer, and much more.
