Updated In March, 2017 - Since Bovada and BetOnline are currently dominating the U.S. online poker market, U.S. online casino market and the U.S. sports betting market there are quite a few people wondering which online gambling site is better. The Bovada Vs BetOnline debate can be found at every major gambling forum in 2015. I've been working closely with both companies and I also hold accounts at both. This article will help you determine if Betonline or Bovada is the best match for you. They are both multi-product gambling and betting companies so I will divide this article into sections - Bovada Poker Vs BetOnline Poker, Bovada Sports Vs BetOnline Sports and Bovada Casino Vs BetOnline Casino. I will start off with a comparison between the top U.S. poker rooms in 2015. Please note that BetAMU.org has special bonus deals at each of these US gambling sites so be sure to use our links to visit the company you decide to play, bet or gamble at.

Both Bovada Poker and Bet Online Poker have enjoyed a 50-100% increase in real money traffic over the last year. Bovada Poker went from the 4th largest US poker site in 2012 to the largest in 2015. Traffic at Bovada Poker is significantly higher than the traffic at BetOnline Poker so that is a big mark for them. That isn't the only deciding factor though. Here are some comparison results on several other categories. Bovada Poker bonus Vs BetOnline Poker Bonus - Bovada gives new players a 100% match bonus up to $1,000 and some tickets to $100,000 MTT feeders.
BetOnline is giving players that sign up through Betamu a special bonus, much larger than the 25% offered elsewhere. We are pleased to offer a 200% match bonus up to $2,500 at Betonline Poker. We are also running a hand race and a MTT leader board promo. Our 2015 Betonline Poker bonus guide explains how to claim this private bonus deal. This guide will explain how to use our 2015 no deposit bonus codes at Betonline.
The promos at Bovada.lv Poker include rake races, Badbeat Bonus, Royal Flush Bonus, various tournament related promotions and several new high-end monthly promotions. Because so many sports bettors play at both of these poker rooms the real money action is very soft. I'm not exactly keeping score but I think that the Bovada Poker versus BetOnline Poker debate is more even now that we have a much larger signup bonus for new players at BetOnline Poker. Still, Bovada Poker is the better online poker site in 2015, slightly. There are a few other things worth noting though.
Bovada Sports and the Racebook are largest (more things to bet on) and they even have a large number of international customers. They really do put the big name bookmakers in the UK and Europe to shame in many ways. Bovada's regular betting platform and their award winning live dealer betting interface are also slightly better than BetOnline's. This is not wholly one-sided though. Bovada and BetOnline compete intensely with regards to the lines they offer. Overall, the BetOnline Sportsbook has slightly better lines on average and in general. Here are some other facts about each bookmaker.
This one may surprise you. The Bovada Casino has amazing software and nearly 300 games. BetOnline's casino can only boast half of that number for they do also have a great platform. Both US casino sites have some pretty good promotions and bonuses. I'm giving the win to the Bet Online Casino because they also feature a U.S. friendly live dealer casino. This advanced and rare new casino gambling service really does tip the scales on BetOnline.ag's favor in my opinion. Here is a list of some other things to consider:
This is a pretty tough thing to judge. The reason that these two gambling companies are the best in 2015 is their banking options and speeds. In truth, no other USA poker rooms, sports books or casinos are paying Americans quicker in 2015. They are also the easiest places for Americans to make deposits at, which is one of the main reasons US gamblers have been leaving places like Lock Poker (1-2 month payout delays).
