Sportsbook Betting Sites Accepting American Express
There are currently only two reputable sportsbooks accepting American Express, WagerWeb.com and
Bovada. American Express is one of those cards where it’s basically impossible to find a sportsbook betting site that uses them, and the cards sometimes begin to get denied as time goes on so it’s best to deposit a fair amount at first if you’re a high stakes bettor.
American Express Sportsbook for 2014
WagerWeb right now has the strongest site in terms of depositing and withdrawing. Deposits for US bettors almost always go through, sometime with Amex, and withdraws have been very quick, depending on what option you choose. I generally just go with check because it’s straight forward and I don’t have to provide all my bank details.
Safety and Concerns
Other than Bovada, I would say BetOnline and WagerWeb are the safest sites atm but that can change in a blink of an eye. The site has been around for over 19 years and many believe it is one of the safest books online, well to service the USA at least.
Bovada Amex Review
Bodog or now known as Bovada for the US have lately withdrawn their Amex deposit option.
You can try but we recommend WagerWeb because I haven’t heard of anyone using Amex here in a long time but they are known for taking credit cards down then putting them back up during peak betting seasons.
Bodog/Bovada Sign up Bonus
The initial deposit bonus at Bovada is 10% with no maximum of what you deposit. So if you deposit $5,000 you instantly get $500 credited to your account.
Obviously, it is better to use your American Express card at Bovada instead of another popular payment method. Those online sports bettors that have been plagued with credit card rejections in the past will be happy to hear that Bovada offers a manual transaction to players that receive a rejection while trying to use their American Express card to fund their sports betting account. This manual transaction has an acceptance rate of over 90%, just use their live chat help if you have troubles.
Bovada Minimum Deposit
The minimum deposit amount allowed at Bovada is $20 when you use your American Express card. We are not aware of any max deposit amount. As you continue to deposit at Bovada, you can gradually increase your American Express limit, according to customer service.
