The BetOnline.ag sportsbook (which is the same company/site as BetOnline.com) is currently the most popular sports betting site (in the US) and of course has good deposit and signup bonuses. In the last few years I noticed that they frequently change their bonus/promo codes. The bonuses seem to change with the start of every new sports season, major events (like the Super Bowl) and usually with playoffs. I have noticed that the bonus is always bigger (usually 50% to $2500 – instead of the standard 25% to $1000 bonus) at the start of football season.. Of course this isn’t too important since everybody gets a 50% bonus on all their re-deposits, so the changing bonus only affects your initial deposit.
The Current Promo Codes for May 2019
It’s finally here – NBA Playoff time! BetOnline has updated their bonuses for the 2019 NCAA and NBA basketball season. While $1,000 is still a much bigger bonus then most sportsbooks, the 10x rollover is the industry standard for signup bonuses. Bovada bonus is only 5x rollover – But is only $250 max. The good news is this 10x rollover is only for the signup bonus, reload bonuses are a smaller 6x rollover.
BOL1000 – 50% up to $1,000 on your FIRST deposit and then use the “LIFEBONUS” code on all additionally deposits forever. 10x Rollover

Bonus Terms – The Dirty Details
Read these very carefully since most sportsbook bonuses can be VERY strict.
- There is now a 10x rollover requirement (was 15x before in 2018).
- Rollover amount is [deposit + fees + bonus] multiplied by [required rollover]
- Bonus is issued as Free Play
- Free play only works in the sportsbook
- NO withdraws can be made for 30 days of receiving your bonus!
So the amount required to bet (rollover) will be 10x your bonus to keep your bonus money. Let’s run through some examples
Bonus Example #1
- You Deposit $500, so you will get a $250 Free Play bonus – (50%)
- $7,500 in total betting is required ($750* the 10x rollover)
Bonus Example #2 – Maxing it Out
- You Deposit $2,000, so you will get a $1,000 Free Play bonus – (50%)
- $30,000 in total betting is required ($3,000 * the 10x rollover)
Our Verdict of the BetOnline.ag Bonus
I really disliked the 15x rollover requirement that was there in 2018. In January 2019 the playthrough requirement (rollover) was reduced to just 6x! Usually yhe bigger the bonus, the harder it is to actually get (earn) it. Smaller bonuses are easier and have less of a rollover… but they are smaller!
The regular BetOnline first deposit bonus is usually a 25% bonus with a 6x rollover, then they “increase” their bonus to 50% and quietly increase the rollover to 10x and add a 30 day rule to earn the bonus. . Seems a little sneaky, but overall the bonus is a really good option if you are going to be placing a good amount of bets at BetOnline.ag. Either way the BetOnline rollovers are a tad higher than most books, but so are their bonuses. It will work if you are placing good size bets or want to use BOL as your main sportsbook.
The Best News – All redeposit bonuses will earn a 25% bonus, with ONLY A 6x ROLLOVER requirement. Only a few sportsbooks offer re-deposit bonuses (Youwager has the best reload bonus – 15% bonus with only a 4.5x rollover).
