BetAmerica NJ Sportsbook

By Jim Tomlin

Owned and operated by Churchill Downs Inc., BetAmerica is one of the top online sportsbooks and casino available in New Jersey.

Sports and Markets available at BetAmerica

Many of the sports that BetAmerica covers have multiple markets across different countries. This online sportsbook offers a variety of sports betting markets. Depending on the event you’re betting on, you’ll be able to place a variety of bets. Place straight moneyline bets, multi-bet parlays, teasers, prop bets and even handicaps.

From the major US sports to European markets, there’s a formidable selection of sports betting markets available with BetAmerica. The sportsbook has all the betting markets listed here:

  • Football: BetAmerica brings you ample opportunity to bet on American football, including the NFL and the NCAA.
  • Basketball: Bet on college teams with BetAmerica because the NBA is not available. Plus, there’s betting for Euroleague basketball and the Champions league of Europe.
  • Tennis: There are tennis betting markets offered from the US, France, Bulgaria, Australia and about ten other countries.
  • Golf: There is golf betting provided for US and international tournaments.
  • MMA: Bet on MMA fights happening in the UFC and internationally.
  • Motor Racing: Bet on the upcoming NASCAR races.
  • Boxing: Find betting markets for boxing matches happening all around the world.
  • Baseball: Bet on the MLB throughout the season and place your picks for the winner of the World Series.
  • Aussie Rules: BetAmerica has a betting market available for football from Australia, covering the AFL.
  • Rugby: With sports betting markets for rugby tournaments in Europe and on an international level, BetAmerica brings betting on rugby matches that have the most global attention.

Betting Odds

The odds at BetAmerica Sports are not much different from the odds available at other NJ sportsbooks. There is nothing special about them. They tend to favor the house and not the person betting with them, which is not out of the ordinary when dealing with sportsbooks in New Jersey.

Betting Features

  • Live Betting: This feature allows gamblers to bet on an event as it’s happening. Betting after the games begins means you get the most updated lines before you bet. With live betting, you get to react to the action as it unfolds.
  • CashOut: This feature is available whenever you’re live betting. With CashOut, you can settle your bets before the end of the event. Use CashOut to receive a reduced amount of your stake to avoid the hit of a straight-up loss.

VIP programs

Currently, BetAmerica does not offer a VIP Program.

Payment Options

  • VISA
  • MasterCard
  • PayPal
  • ACH Transfer

Support and security

If being associated with SBTech, Golden Nugget and Churchill Downs Inc. weren’t enough for you to be content with BetAmerica, then let’s look to the state licensing.

In order to operate, BetAmerica received a license from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. In order to receive this kind of license, online casinos must possess software and other things needed to protect customer data and information. In receiving this license, BetAmerica passed this rigorous test and continues to adhere to the protocols outlined by the state.

For customer support, BetAmerica offers four services.

There is a comprehensive FAQ section which answers almost every question you’d have about the site, but if that doesn’t do it for you, you can contact BetAmerica by email 24/7, live chat (and there is an icon for that in the bottom right-hand corner of the page), and phone support, which is available from 9am - 11pm eastern standard time.

Responsible gambling

It’s not too often an online casino will have a Responsible Gaming section that captures our attention, but the overall detail and sincerity did just that with BetAmerica.

The Responsible Gaming section of BetAmerica can be access at the bottom of the page or through the green “RG” logo at the top of the page.

Not only are the usual hotlines and organizations and in-house limitations that you can put on yourself are there, but there’s even more information in terms of myths, warning signs and how problem gambling could impact you in multiple facets of your everyday living.

There is just more information here than is probably necessary and that is an incredibly good thing by BetAmerica and exhibits a true desire to protect the user(s).

In summary

If BetAmerica can refine the registration process and add some new and creative promotional offerings to the casino, BetAmerica could very well be one of the better online casino offerings in the state of New Jersey. The lack of a VIP Program is not problematic yet as BetAmerica is so new and it makes sense to establish a user base before offering anything of that sort. All in all, though, BetAmerica, considering its age is an excellent online casino option, especially when you factor in the games offered, the welcome bonus and the Responsible Gaming section of the site.

Must be 21+ to participate. T&Cs apply.
