Carbon Sports Sportsbook Review

Bet Now HIGHLIGHTS:

CarbonSports is a newer sportsbook that is from the same people who brought you CarbonPoker, one of the more respected online poker sites around. The sportsbook opened in 2012 and has developed a nice following in a short time.

CarbonSports' parent company is Jazette Enterprises Limited, which also owns sportsbook.ag, one of the giants in the online sportsbetting world. Much like sportsbook.ag, CarbonSports offers plenty of betting possibilities and bettors can also dabble in the casino, in the racebook, and naturally, in poker. CarbonSports does a good job getting its overnight lines in professional sports up in a quick manner, so you can handicap the next day's action while watching your wagers.

  • Offers sports betting, casino games, poker and horse racing
  • Has solid credit card acceptance rate for deposits
  • Excellent menu of betting opportunities

4 Star Account Registration:

CarbonSports has a registration process that is a bit more time-consuming than that used by most sportsbooks, but it will pay off down the road, particularly when it comes time to make a withdraw. CarbonSports will want to see a photo ID, such as driver's license or a passport, to make sure the account holder is at least 18 years of age, which they are required to do as a license holder from the Directorate of Offshore Gaming, which oversees the offshore gambling industry in Antigua and Barbuda. You may also be asked to provide a recent utility bill, or something else that shows your address, which is something that most sportsbooks will want to see when you request a withdraw, so there's nothing wrong with getting all of the paperwork out of the way so you can enjoy your betting activities.

4 Star Bonuses and Promotions:

CarbonSports offers a fair amount of bonuses and promotions and bettors will find plenty of special offerings, free wagers and the like offered on a consistent basis. Your initial sign-up bonus is 25% up to $250 and deposits made on Thursday or Friday carry a 5% bonus.

Special promotions, such as contests and double-your-winnings weekly proposition bets take place and the casino, racebook and poker room all have their own special promotions that you can take advantage of. There is also a free $25 bet when you place your first mobile sports wager.

4 Star Site Navigation:

CarbonSports offers bettors a clean betting site that should have bettors in action in no time at all. The site is fast and also allows you to look at the different betting percentages in each sport; the percentage of wagers that are being bet on the moneyline, against the spread and also on the total, which is good information for those bettors who like to go against the public.

4 StarHalf Star Betting Options:

CarbonSports offer lines on plenty of activities, ranging from the NFL and NBA to the lesser-wagered sports, such as cricket and snooker. CarbonSports also offers a nice variety of entertainment and political wagers, as well as more futures bets and proposition bets than can typically be found at an online sportsbook. Overnight lines are posted early the night before the game is played.

CarbonSports has decent-sized limits that will never be a concern for the majority of sports bettors, beginning with $11,000 NFL wagers on game day and $3,300 for NBA sides. College basketball game limits are $2,200 and $1,100 on totals. Lesser-known sports carry smaller betting limits.

4 StarHalf Star Odds:

Like most sportsbooks that are geared towards recreational bettors, CarbonSports will occasionally shade lines towards the favorite and the over; not by much, but you will see the half-point shade now and then and five cents on the money line at times. CarbonSports does offer fair odds on most of their futures, with an average hold that hovers around 20%, which is better than you will find at some online sportsbooks.

4 Star Live Betting:

CarbonSports offers plenty of in-game wagering opportunities, but does not offer the ability to wager on the outcome of the next play, next pitch, etc., that some sportsbooks offer. Still, there are enough offerings to keep many bettors happy. At halftime of games, you can wager on the outcome of the third quarter, team over/unders for the second half and plenty more. CarbonSports offers a nice selection of games and you can check the website for the upcoming in-game wagering schedule.

4 Star Customer Service:

CarbonSports aims to offer solid customer support and they work hard to meet those goals, offering support 24 hours a day around the clock. The most common method of communication is by e-mail.

4 Star Payments: Visa logo skrill logo

CarbonSports only offers several ways of transferring money, but they have a good track record in credit card deposits, using Web Players Ltd. or its sister company Digital Services as its credit card processors. Visa deposits and cash transfers are the two methods used for players from the United States, while bettors living in other countries also have the option of using Skrill.

The first monthly withdraw is free and subsequent withdraws made the same month will carry a $40 processing fee. The company states that it may take checks between six and eight weeks to arrive, although the majority of checks are received quicker. CarbonSports may elect to send a Visa gift card in place of a check at their discretion, although you will be able to use the card to make cash withdraws. You will be required to choose a PIN before you can make a withdraw. If you have recently made a credit card deposit, CarbonSports may refund all or part of your funds back to the credit card that was used.

4 StarHalf Star Additional Features:

CarbonSports prides itself in being a one-stop gaming portal and they do an excellent job in that aspect. Access to CarbonPoker is a breeze and there is also a full-fledged casino and racebook for those who like to bet on the horses. CarbonSports' mobile application makes it easy to place your wagers with a smartphone or tablet and you can also play casino games on the go.
