"Established from the success of Carbon Poker, Carbon Sports is an oasis of stability in the tumultuous world of online sportsbooks. A user-friendly interface, seamless deposits and withdrawals, and a stalwart reputation for financial safety allow a user to focus on what he’s actually there for: placing bets. While improvements can be made in the quantity and quality of bonus options and in the number of customer service outlets, neither of these are problems that a user should expect to interfere with his overall headache-free experience. Consequently, Carbon Sports certainly deserves its solid reputation and committed user-base it continues to build, day after day, as it establishes itself as a major presence in the online gambling scene."
Ease of Use:

One of the first things for a user to consider before depositing money into an online sportsbook is whether the overall experience on the site will be user-friendly. In this regard, the Carbon Sports interface is a refreshing breath of fresh air from the notoriously complex websites of many of its competitors. It is reasonable to assume that it will not be long before competing sportsbooks begin to adopt the Carbon Sports interface as their own. Creating an account takes no more than two minutes, and instant-deposit methods allow users to start placing bets shortly after. Navigating between sports betting, the poker room, and the casino is effortless, allowing users to take advantage of nearly endless betting options. My only complaint is that the interface could be more aesthetically pleasing, instead of the relatively basic graphics Carbon Sports currently displays. Still, for Carbon Sports, with betting lines organized neatly in plain sight, the beauty is in its simplicity.

Reputation/Security:

Having been built on the foundation of the tremendously successful Carbon Poker enterprise, one can rest calmly when depositing money into their Carbon Sports account. Carbon Poker has been a major presence on the poker scene since 2007 and has famously paid out the largest bad-beat poker jackpot in online poker history: $1.2 million dollars. Its reputation speaks for itself, and users of Carbon Sports will enjoy the financial security that only comes when betting with major sportsbooks. Founded in 2012, Carbon Sports already is increasingly known for its impeccable reputation as a safe, trustworthy money holder. Beyond the stability of the enterprise itself, Carbon Poker and Carbon Sports employ the highest degree of security in the industry, further protecting their users’ money from unwarranted harm.

Customer Service:

On the positive side, Carbon Sports has “24/7 player support” and typically responds to all queries within 1-2 days, which is an impressive standard for the industry. Nonetheless, Carbon Sports does lag behind other sportsbooks which have live-chat agents answering users’ questions around the clock. Having said that, the gaming support on the Carbon Sports website lists users’ most frequently asked questions and will provide the solutions for nearly any difficulty that can arise when using the site. While this certainly mitigates the lack of a phone number to call in order to speak directly with a customer service agent, I would still prefer the option to communicate with a person in real-time. In this regard, while currently operating at an acceptable level, the customer service at Carbon Sports does have space to improve.

Bonuses Paid:

An effortless code (CARBON250) when first-time users are depositing offers a 25% signup bonus up to $250. This comes with a hefty 20x playthrough requirement, however, meaning that users will have to place a significant number of bets before being able to withdraw the winnings from their bonuses. This is something to be wary of when depositing money, but it should be less of a concern to betters seeking a long-term, dependable option. In addition to a signup bonus, Carbon Sports offers a consistent set of promotions including casino and horse betting rebates, poker freerolls, and weekly 5% reload bonuses. Ultimately, these are nice side benefits to be aware of when betting with Carbon Sports, but bonuses will be far from a major element of the average user’s experience.

Ease of deposits/withdrawals:

Here too, the beauty of Carbon Sports is in its simplicity: one of the foremost advantages of Carbon Sports is that Visa credit cards are nearly always accepted—without fees—for instant deposits! Additionally, a variety of deposit options via online wallets are offered as an alternative, appealing to users with funded accounts searching for a dependable sportsbook. Carbon Poker has built a name for itself based on speedy withdrawals, and Carbon Sports continues to perform the utmost to further that legacy. As soon as proof of address and ID verification documents are supplied to their support team, you can rest assured that your withdrawal will be processed accurately and promptly. The simplest way to withdraw money from Carbon Sports is via Neteller, which is offered as a free option with only a $50 withdrawal minimum. All in all, you can expect to have your withdrawn money in your Neteller account within a week of submitting your request.
