Bet river experience

The app has improved a lot. In the beginning it was really quite awful, but they made commendable efforts to improve the experience. The loyalty program is quite unique in a good way. It makes me want to climb your way up the loyalty levels by betting here instead of elsewhere. The Bonus store is cool but it could probably use more options. The book offers daily profit boost promos which are nice. Occasionally they will do some bet and get promos depending on the sporting event. One trouble I have is occasionally they won’t take the full amount of wager size. On a couple occasions I’ve bet only $10 and the book rejected it. Sometimes you have to get your bet referred and it may come back declined or only partially approved. You usually don’t have these problems at places like DK or fanduel.

Only Sportsbook That Sends Bets For Hours Approvals

Bet Rivers is the only Illinois Sportsbook that does annoying, hours wait, bet “approvals”. You don’t know if the bet actually goes through since there no alert notifications . Shady as heck. Don’t get annoyed , use their competitors. Even on promos this happens. All these high rankings are bonkers. So many other amazing competitors to give them any of your money.

Hi Lomikey, thank you for providing us with feedback like this! When a wager is sent for approval that process only takes a few seconds, though in rare cases it can take up to 30 seconds. I'll absolutely pass the feedback along and see if adding a notification for bet approval is something that can be done! For future feedback, please don't hesitate to email us at and we'd happily take a look into any and all feedback! Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!
