Sports Interaction Sportsbook Review
SportsInteraction.com brings the action to you hard and fast with a home page that is information-dense without sacrificing simplicity. Whoever designed this site deserves some type of award, because it’s real nice. Page load times are miniscule and betting options are vast. The layout of each sport is intuitive and instant, making every click count. The live betting options are plentiful and the actual live betting interface is streamlined and strong. If you’re confused, it’s you, not them. NOTE: Sports Interaction has recently added a “live betting” component to their website which includes daily live betting on 200+ games per week. Tantalizing.
Established in 1997, Sports Interaction stakes its claim as the first online sports book licensed and regulated in North America. All data to and from the site is protected by Verisign-backed SSL technology and a series of serious firewalls. Another plus, the “About Us” page at Sports Interaction shows that the site operates under the authority of the Kanhawake Gaming Commission, the same governing authority that regulates the top-tier sportsbooks and casinos.
The customer service at Sports Interaction is good especially for English speakers. They provide a toll-free 800 number but the recorded voice option menu can be clunky. And they do offer our favorite mode of customer support, live chat, but that can take a while to accomplish. Their operators, once you reach one, are friendly and helpful. Lately, the wait times have been getting shorter as Sports Interaction staffs up on customer service reps, but we’re still not quite ready to dole out 5 stars.
We have criticized SportsInteraction.com in the past for skimping on the bonuses, so we are excited to see that they have stepped up in this department. Sports Interaction is currently running a 100 percent bonus on deposits, up to a maximum bonus of $125. Deposit $125, get $125 extra as a bonus. True to their keep it simple ways and unlike some other sites that play constant shell games with bonuses, Sports Interaction does not engage in the usual “bait and switch” techniques with regard to bonuses; if Sports Interaction says you’re getting a bonus, you get a bonus. The addition of a loyalty program might be a nice touch though.
In terms of deposits and withdrawals, this is where the no nonsense, simplicity-focused approach of Sports Interaction shines best. You can deposit via major credit card and you can withdraw by check or bank wire. For U.S. and Canadian sports bettors, the availability of the “eCheck” method for BOTH deposits and withdrawals is HUGE. If you are sick of sportsbooks that are happy to take your money electronically, but then make you wait 10 business days for a paper check to get your winnings, then check out SportsInteraction.com. These guys don’t hesitate to pay up promptly.
