EatWatchBet's mission is to serve as the ultimate resource for new sports bettors across the US. Our goal is to be your source for everything you need to get started with legal sports betting.
With that in mind, we strive to be the most honest and trustworthy source for sportsbook recommendations and betting tips. Every piece of content on EatWatchBet.com is written by an industry expert and goes through a strict editing process to ensure it is current and accurate.
Our team has identified three primary resources that new players rely on when choosing what sportsbook they sign up with, here is how we work to help new players get started in sports betting:
The most common questions new players ask are about the legal status of betting in their state. Is sports betting legal? What sportsbooks are licensed to operate in my state? What sports can I legally bet on? We answer these questions on a state-by-state basis.
Our sportsbooks page is a great place to get started. Simply find your state for a complete breakdown of the legal status of betting, reviews of the apps available, and a complete breakdown of the betting laws in your state.
The majority of our sportsbook-related content will contain updated ratings and rankings of every available sportsbook app. Our team uses a combination of staff reviews, player reviews, and industry-expert reviews to rate every app. We have experts located in every state with legal sports betting that thoroughly test every sportsbook we work with.
The average review published on EatWatchBet has taken years to write. We have worked with industry leaders like FanDuel and DraftKings since 2012, and have tested every new app within days of release ever since.
Our reviews are written by industry experts and analysts with decades of experience, using direct feedback from current players on every app. We track uptime, average payout time, customer support options, and even the average juice applied to popular wagers.
New player promotions and welcome offers are an often overlooked aspect of choosing the right sportsbook. As a new player, this is your only real chance to get free cash from the sportsbooks available in your state. This can vary from a $50 bonus up to as much as $2,000, but there is more to every offer than just the total size of the bonus. Understanding the terms of each offer is crucial.
For instance, the classic BetRivers bonus offer includes a $250 bonus with 1x rollover, while the DraftKings bonus offer caps at $1,000 but has a 20x rollover requirement. Whether you prefer the larger bonus and higher rollover requirement or the smaller bonus and lower rollover requirement are up to you, but it is important to understand the terms before registering.
We update, rate, and rank every bonus offer on a daily basis to ensure you find the best offer possible when you register. Find these rankings on our sportsbook promotions landing page with links to complete reviews of every offer.
Our process for reviewing both sportsbook and DFS operators is fascinating and results in what we think are the most honest recommendations available. Before we recommend any product it goes through a thorough review process, led by some of the most experienced and respected experts in our industry. Here is a peak into we build all of our reviews:
Our team tests the current build of every operator's website and app on a daily basis. Our team consists of both reviewers and active bettors, which gives us the perspective of both a tester looking for flaws and an active player that is using the app on a daily basis. The result is a review that checks every box and provides the reader with an honest look at the strengths and weaknesses of every product we review.
We collect player feedback from a number of different sources, and not only take that data into account in our reviews but display it on all of our review pages. This allows you to compare our editor's rating with the current rating for every sportsbook and DFS app in the App Store, Play Store, and on independent review sites like TrustPilot.
We refresh our pages on a daily basis to ensure that the information we are providing new players is accurate and current. We rely on an army of writers and editors to analyze every page, check for accuracy, and schedule updates as needed. This is a responsibility our content team does not take lightly but is the standard we work hard to maintain.
Contact us if you have questions about any of our reviews, or if you are looking for honest feedback or recommendations about any of the apps available in your state.
