The OBRating Review System Explained

The most clear and concise Online Bookmaker review system on the internet!

This page explains how our rating system at OnlineBookmakers.com works. Our reviewers study each online bookmaker, utilize every facet of the site, and offer clear, concise reviews with unbiased analyses.

Coverage & Odds

The Coverage & Odds feature takes into account what countries and players are accepted at the online bookmaker. For example, some bookmakers do not accept punters from the United States, while others only accept American players.

The range of sports on offer, how regularly odds are updated, and the variety of odds also play a large factor in determining the star rating for this category.

Full Star

The online bookmaker allows a vast majority of global players to sign up and bet, as well as offering an incredible range of sports and unique bets

Half Star

Most countries are accepted, with a few notable exclusions. The most popular sports are offered at the bookie, with a sound number of bets available.

No Star

A large number of countries are not accepted, or the bookmaker is region-specific. Only a small number of sports are available, with just a handful of events to place a wager on.

Promotions & Bonuses

While we understand that many professional bookmakers don't offer a lot in the way of bonuses, they do play an important role in most punters' initial selection. Bonuses can mean anything from deposit perks to refer-a-friend extras, while promotions can range from sport-specific cash extras to much bigger prizes.

Full Star

Countless promotions and bonuses that are updated regularly and able to be used by all members.

Half Star

Standard sign-up bonuses and promotions are offered, but not much in the way of continued extras.

No Star

Little to no bonuses and promotions for the online bookmaker's members.

Usability & Support

With such a wide variety of online bookmakers available to the public, some are user-friendly while others require time to grow accustomed to. This category takes into account how quickly a punter can make a bet at the online bookmaker, as well as the design of the site itself.

Additionally, support is a major part of anyone's betting career, and Usability & Support assesses the number of contact options available, as well as the inclusion of new technologies such as Live Chat.

Full Star

Not only is there a thorough FAQ on-hand for members to use, but there are several different methods of contact available (e-mail, telephone, live chat).

Half Star

There is more than one way in which to contact the support staff team, but there is no live chat feature that allows members to have queries answered immediately.

No Star

Little to no support options are provided for punters, on top of poor site performance in the form of confusing navigation and/or lengthy load times.

Banking & Limits

Depositing and withdrawing funds is an integral part of the sports betting process, and something that should be regarded as highly important at an online bookmaker. Banking & Limits not only takes into account the minimum and maximum deposits allowed at a bookie, but also the number of banking options granted to members.

Full Star

An above average selection of banking options that includes not only the most popular credit cards and e-banking systems, but lesser known methods as well.

Half Star

Several different deposit and withdrawal options from across a wide range of credit cards and e-banking systems.

No Star

Few banking options that may only allow credit cards or cheques to be used. May also have a complicated system for withdrawals and/or unusually regulated transaction allowances.

Reputation & Integrity

No matter where you are betting, it's always good to know that the online bookmaker you are wagering at is a reputable company with secure fund management. Reputation & Integrity assesses how long the online bookmaker has been in business, where it is licensed, as well as the reputation of its management and staff.

Full Star

Brilliant reputation with licenses in respected gambling jurisdictions. Well known as being a secure online bookmaker, with a long, unblemished history to back it up.

Half Star

Good reputation in the online gambling community, known as a safe and secure betting venue with no history of problems/issues.

No Star

Little to no betting licenses in respected gambling sectors; may also be a young online bookmaker yet to prove itself on a larger scale.
