MyBookie, came online somewhere in Costa Rica, around 2014-ish, is popular among bettors living in the US, *specifically* searching for offshore betting sites.

It's two main competitors are Bovada and BetOnline. May be and can also be put in the mix. <<< These sites are fine too - in their own way. Which one to go for, is really just on you. Versus this and that, won't work here, since all these places are solid.

Here's a few things I have found about, that might help your cause:

MyBookie does do live betting. The facility is available, like any other sportsbook in the business. It's also particularly in for parlay bets.

It's not legal anywhere in the US. Never was.

Mybookie is an offshore betting site and has been like that forever. Except, a few critical states like New York (where they really like to push the buttons) and Nevada etc., anyone can sign up, with minimal issues, if any.

It does have a bare-minimum Curacao license, if that means anything, at all. Their brand image is based on their past performance, as a reliable offshore bookie, not some island-issued authorization.

Its good history, does, make it a perfectly safe site for Americans; which is where nearly all of its clients live.

Deposits can be made using traditional cards, or their preferred mode: cryptocurrencies. Depending upon the chosen payout option, it can up to one hour for Bitcoin, and 5 to 6 days for bank wire transfer and P2P.

Main thing is that they do pay out, regardless of how large the win. KYC is required.

I have many complaints about them on Reddit or TrustPilot. In fact, a lot of people there have clearly mentioned, MyBookie being a straight up shady site. For example, withdrawals of  up to 5-figure winnings isn't a problem, provided they clear you after a review process. There's one Reddit thread that calls it a scam, calling out others not to use it, but other users disagree, having a polar-opposite view of this sportsbook. TrustPilot users seem to hate this brand, giving it a poor ratings mandate of 1.5 / 5. Many comments are related to frozen accounts, voided parlay bets, and them requiring too much personal information for simple payouts.

I personally don't know what to say here. If it were me, I would "still" give them a chance, having played there myself, without any issues, since 2017.

Customer support is done through email-based help desk, and live chat. They don't do phone.

As for language support, apart from English, they got Portuguese, German, Japanese and even Mandarin, and a few of the other popular ones.

They don't have an app, and there isn't any need for one, either. The site works fine on all types of smartphones.

Client privacy is something they always put first. So, if you're worried about Uncle Sam, busting your door. Don't. MyBookie does not report any player directly to IRS, because it's located outside the US. But...sports betting income is taxable, therefore, must be filed.

They can do a 50% match bonus on your first deposit, up to $1000 + 10 or so free spins - there's a 40X wagering pre-condition, for casino. One more cool thing is the free play. This can be used to test out their platform, or brush up on your skills. I don't think you get paid out on free-play wins.

Betsoft, Concept Gaming power them up. So, you will get a nice live casino and sports betting experience; not to mention access to fairly popular slots.

Spin the roulette, or use your math skills on blackjack; whatever makes you feel good.

Their VIP program is also something that's making waves. People who have the funds to gamble know what I'm on about.

In the end, I do recommend MyBookie. Go for it.
