Do you believe that less is more? Do you enjoy surprises? If your answers are affirmative, then BetAnySports might just be the place for you to bet the Super Bowl. For example, you have to join the sportsbook in order to see the sportsbook. That is to say, you can’t see any odds unless you are a member. In that way it’s sort of like a secret society. Except that you’re not likely to make any shocking discoveries, like Tom Cruise in Eyes Wide Shut. Maybe it’s just us, but we find it useful to know what the odds are before laying a bet. Of course, it’s not like BAS is holding the odds hostage. They’re not demanding a ransom. You don’t have to negotiate their safe release. Sure, BAS could offer the best Super Bowl odds, but then is that something one would like to keep secret?
Just about any other betting website we have ever encountered displays their odds for all to see. If you like what you see you sign up, and if you don’t you don’t. In this case, though, you’re kind of screwed if you don’t like what you see. Because the fact that you’re seeing it means you have already opened an account. Bettors like their Super Bowl betting to be quick and easy; here we stumble upon a hurdle right off the gate. And that may turn off some gamblers from betting on the Super Bowl at BAS.
Well, maybe they have a juicy sign-up bonus. An offer you can’t refuse, as Vito Corleone was fond of saying. Something so big that it alone is worth the price of admission. It might as well say, “This is where you bet the Super Bowl, and nowhere else.” Maybe they do, but again, you have no way of knowing that from the home page. So that’s another valuable piece of information that most books strive to make as visible as possible. Yet here, it’s conspicuous by its absence.
Maybe we’re approaching this the wrong way. We’re focusing too much on unknown unknowns. Sometimes you just don’t know enough to know what you don’t know. Let’s look at from a different perspective. Let’s work with what’s knowable. Banking, for instance. BAS deposit methods include Visa, money order, Bitcoin, and Person to Person. Bitcoin features the lowest minimum ($25) and the highest maximum ($10 000) and involves no fees. The same goes for withdrawal, except the Bitcoin minimum is $50. Other payout methods are wire transfer and check.
Withdrawals may be requested at any time, but funds won’t be deducted until after the payout is processed. There is a maximum of two payouts processed every seven days. Whenever a second payout is processed within seven days of a previous payout, an additional $100 processing fee is charged to your account. Free payout is possible. If your account has had action in the previous four weeks. And if it doesn’t have any payouts in the past 30 days.
What do you know; in the banking page there is a link to the bonus-rollover page. And there we find this pretty little nugget; “Bonus-hunters are not welcome” Why not add “trespassers will be shot on sight”? Or “you kids get off my lawn!”? This website is starting to remind us of joke usually attributed to Groucho Marx. “I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member.” Only this appears to be the opposite kind of club. So maybe you would want to be a member and bet the Super Bowl there. Finally, there is one tidbit of which the home page does inform us. “More ways to bet, more ways to win.” Perhaps that means you can place more types of Super Bowl bets than on any other sportsbooks. We’ll have to take BetAnySports’ word for it, though.
