Bally Bet NY Sportsbook Preview

Look out, New Yorkers! Bally Bet is on a path to become “Top of the list, King of the hill, A Number One” in New York, as it positions itself to become a premier source for online sports betting in the Empire State. The Ballyverse, as the company calls it, is already comprised of operations in states like Colorado, Indiana, Virginia, and Iowa, as the casino giant takes its talents to New York. After all, when you’re one of the biggest names on the Atlantic City Boardwalk, New Yorkers equate your name with success and excellence. But what does Bally Bet bring to the table?

Launching their online sportsbook in May of 2021 in Colorado, Bally Bet is quickly becoming a favorite of bettors in each state they’ve set up shop in. With a fantastic new app and not one but TWO ways to earn loyalty points, it’s easy to see why Bally Bet’s changing the game. After changing hands when Twin River Worldwide Holdings acquired the rights from Caesars Entertainment, Bally Bet has positioned itself to become a significant player in the online sportsbook landscape. And while we don’t fully know what their operations will look like in the Empire State, their launch and current operations in other states paints a crystal clear picture of what New Yorkers can expect from Bally Bet, including a fantastic sportsbook welcome bonus!

Recent updates indicate that Bally Bet is targeting an April 2022 debut in the state of New York. We’ll keep you posted.

Bally Bet NY two part bonus offer

Double the bonus offer; double the fun! With this double welcome bonus offering, Bally Bet NY is setting out to prove to new users that they have bettors’ best interests in mind. All you need to do is sign-up and fund your account to be eligible for two bonuses.

Yes, you read that right. The $100 free bet bonus can be acquired by registering a new account and signing up for the app. That’s it. No strings attached. Just complete the registration process, and within 24 hours, your account will receive a $100 free bet from Bally Bet. But the bonuses don’t stop there.

This free bet is not redeemable for cash, and any winnings paid out in association with the free bet will only include the winnings portion of the payout. The free bet cannot be combined with another bonus or another promotion. Another piece of information regarding this offer is that you may only use the free bet on wagers with maximum payout odds equal to or less than +300.

To grab a risk-free bet of up to $550, first-time users will need to fund their account and place their first real cash wager of any amount. Should that bet win, users will immediately receive their stake and winnings as if the bet were placed under normal conditions. However, if the bet loses, Bally Bet will send you a free bet credit that is equal to the lost wager stake, up to $550, in your account after the bet has settled. After your free bet has been issued, bettors should know that all free bet credits will expire seven days after reaching your account. This is very much a “use it or lose it” situation, so don’t forget!

Why should New Yorkers choose Bally Bet Sportsbook?

One of the intriguing pieces to Bally Bet as a burgeoning mobile sportsbook is how they didn’t rush to market with an app that wasn’t up to task. Bally’s is one of the most recognizable names in casino gaming, so making the jump to the online gaming industry is a no-brainer. But what may surprise you is that Bally Bet isn’t new to the online and mobile industry at all. They’ve been there right under your nose.

Two of the most well-known online sportsbook brands are FanDuel and DraftKings, both of whom made names for themselves in the daily fantasy world and have made solid inroads within the online sportsbook arena as well. And the third-biggest DFS brand? It’s Monkey Knife Fight, which is owned by Bally’s. That’s right; Bally Bet is brought to you by the same company that the third-largest DFS platform calls home. Even more impressive is that Monkey Knife Fight already has multiple partnerships with professional sports franchises like the San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Los Angeles Chargers. With an impressive list like that, it’s almost shocking the Giants, Jets, or Mets aren’t listed!

With that in mind, you can see why Bally Bet has received such a warm welcome from bettors in every state where they’ve opened up shop. Bally Bet’s mobile app is one of the best, with its sleek design, easy-to-use navigation, and a color scheme that doesn’t tire your eyes. Because Bally’s knows what its customers want, they’ve integrated not one but TWO loyalty programs for you to benefit from when wagering.

Simply put, while Bally Bet may seem like the New Kid on the Mobile Sportsbook Block, they are, in fact, a fresh new take on everything you thought you knew about what an online betting experience can be.

Who can Sign Up on Bally Bet NY?

BallyBet’s New York operation will fall under the jurisdiction of the New York Gaming Commission who has set the legal eligibility for bettors. The NYGC has determined that only bettors 21 years or older and located within the state boundaries of New York will be eligible to place a wager not just with BallyBet, but with any gambling operator in the state. If you fit those eligibility requirements, you’re good to go! Keep in mind non-NY residents can sign up, but wagers are only accepted if you are in-state.

How to register

You’ve downloaded the Bally Bet app; now what? Signing up and registering an account couldn’t be simpler! Start by selecting the state you intend to play in, which can be found either on the landing page itself or within the main menu. On the app, you’ll see the word ‘Register’ in the top right-hand corner of your screen. If you’re registering on a desktop, you’ll see “Join Now” in the same location. Click either word to be led to the next step.

The next step in the registration process is a very familiar one. Bally Bet will ask for your desired username, password, and e-mail address you intend to use. From there, things get a little more personal. Like all major online sportsbooks, Bally Bet is required to verify your identity, which requires your home address, date of birth, phone number, and the last four digits of your social security number. This is a standard practice in the online gaming industry and shouldn’t worry new users one bit.

Once you are through to the final step, users will be prompted to select two security questions used to verify their account in the case of a lost e-mail address or password associated with the account. After that, you’re ready to peruse all of the betting opportunities that Bally Bet has to offer.

Banking options for Bally Bet NY

First things first, you’ll need to deposit some funds now that you have created your account and are ready to place your first Bally Bet wager. But how can you get money into your account? Bally Bet has you covered by offering multiple options in funding your account, including:

  • Electronic Bank Transfer (ACH)
  • Credit/Debit Card
  • Play+ Card

Bally Bet does require players to reach a minimum deposit of $10, which is something to keep in mind. Credit and Debit cards cannot be used for withdrawals, but the remaining two options allow for quick and easy alternatives. Want to make an adventure out of your withdrawal? You can stop by any Bally’s Casino or Bally’s-affiliate to get cash in person. You can find a complete list of Bally’s properties on their website.

Desktop and mobile app overview

When using Bally Bet to place your wagers, bettors will be treated to two of the best mobile and desktop interfaces in the industry. The layout is functional and straightforward while also aesthetically pleasing, as the black and red branding creates a fun mobile landscape and a concrete desktop experience.

Bally Bet Mobile App Overview

bally bet app Bally Bet Mobile View

The first thing to catch your eye when using the mobile app is the easy-to-find sports icons located at the top of the screen offer quick navigation, as do the live betting options below. Another fantastic design choice was the placement of promos, games of the week, and daily specials, which immediately catch the user’s eye once the home page boots up.

The dropdown menu in the top left corner adds another level of navigation for users looking for more information or specific wagers. Bally Bet offers Bet Boosts, Futures, and their full slate of sports offerings from the NBA to international hockey within that menu. Are you looking for a specific player prop or team-specific futures? The search bar located in the dropdown menu is your new best friend. Search for a player’s name, team, location, and Bally Bet will give you all the wager opportunities you can think of right there in the results. A gamechanger mobile app, for sure.

The Bally Bet mobile app is available for Android and iOs operating systems and can be found in your favorite app store

Desktop Overview

bally bet ny

If the Bally Bet mobile interface is to your liking, then you’ll love the desktop layout. Without trying to reinvent the wheel, Bally Bet’s desktop platform feels like an expansive version of the mobile app. An excellent addition to the site’s desktop version is the ease of navigation. While the app, by its nature, will attempt to maximize a small amount of space, the desktop layout has more of a command center feel. With your bet ticket located on the right side of your screen, and the sports navigation on the left, equipped with a fantastic search bar, the desktop view gives you a fuller field of vision. If you want to feel in control of your betting destiny, the desktop version of Bally Bet has you covered and then some.

Available markets and bet types

While the app and desktop interfaces are top-notch, a mobile sportsbook is truly only as good as their wagering options. So what markets and bet types does Bally Bet offer to their customers? Glad you asked! Here’s a smattering of the wagering opportunities offered by Bally Bet:

  • NFL Football
  • College Football (excluding NY colleges, per state law)
  • Baseball
  • NBA Basketball
  • College Basketball (also excluding NY colleges)
  • EuroLeague Basketball
  • NHL Hockey
  • KHL Hockey (Russian League)
  • Boxing
  • MMA/UFC
  • Formula 1
  • NASCAR
  • MLS
  • English Premier League
  • La Liga
  • Bundesliga
  • Serie A
  • And more!

Bally Bet has everything you could wish to wager on. A variety of selections allows a bettor to wager on the Knicks and Nets, and then “James Harden Euro-Step” their way over to the EuroLeague to wager on the next Kristaps Porzingis, or Luka Dončic. While most New Yorkers are familiar with the Unicorn and Luka, they might not be as familiar with the bet types offered by Bally Bet. So when Porzingis comes back to Madison Square Garden, how does Bally Bet allow you to wager on the Knicks? Good question!

Moneyline

A moneyline bet is one of the more common you can make. Simply pick a winner, and place your bet. That’s it! Did you walk into the Carrier Dome and get a good feeling about Syracuse? That’s a moneyline bet in the making!

Point spread

A step above a moneyline wager is the point spread bet. Bally Bet will create a forecasted point differential between two teams playing each other. If the team you like’s point spread includes a minus (-), they’re the favorite in the contest, and if their spread is preceded by a plus (+), they’re the underdog. Let’s take a look at an example!

Let’s say the Jets and Giants are squaring off at MetLife Stadium. You’ve got your Eli Manning Super Bowl XLVI jersey on, and you’re ready to support your G-Men, who are listed as -6.5. If you were to wager on the Giants point spread, your bet would win if the Giants won the game by seven points or more.

However, if you bleed green and are eager to place some B-E-T-S on the J-E-T-S, and the Jets are listed as +6.5, you’d be wagering the Jets will win or lose by less than six points or less.

Total points (over/under)

Some bet types have fancy names like parlay, teaser, and round-robin, but total points wagers are about as straightforward as they come. A wager on the total points is placed on whether you believe the number of combined points scored by both teams will be over OR under the number set by Bally Bet.

So let’s say the Bills are taking on the Giants, and the Over/Under is set at 51.5. If you wager on the over, the Bills and Giants would need to score a combined 52 points for your bet to win. On the other side, if you bet on the under, both teams would need to stay below 51 total points. Simple as that!

Prop bets

If betting on game outcomes or point totals feels a little too pedestrian for your tastes, why not try a prop bet! A prop bet commonly referred to as a side bet, is a wager on a specific event happening or not happening. These wagers can be placed on a multitude of different things, such as Saquon Barkley’s total rushing yards in a game or if Pete Alonso hits a home run, or even as simple as “will it rain during the Yankees game?”

Live betting

Bets like moneyline wagers, over/unders, and parlays have been mainstays at sportsbooks for a long time, but live, in-game betting has burst onto the scene as a fresh take on the classics. Live betting puts bettors right in the middle of the action, offering moment-to-moment wagering opportunities. Are you watching the Yankees game and think Gary Sanchez is about to hit a home run on the next pitch? There’s an in-game wager for that. Or let’s say you’re at the Jets game, and Zach Wilson lines up for a 4th and goal on the 1-yard line; you can wager on whether or not the Jets score a touchdown. Live betting is the future of mobile wagering, and Bally Bet is ready for the new frontier.

Parlay bets

The term parlay may be fun to say, but they’re even harder to hit on. A single parlay can contain multiple straight bets that increase a wager’s payout. Sounds great, right? Sure, but you will need every leg of your parlay to win to collect your parlay payout.

Futures/outrights

Finally ready to embrace the unbridled optimism of the New York Mets upcoming season? Why not place a futures bet on the Amazins to win the World Series this year? Or, to be a bit more pragmatic, how about winning the NL East? Or perhaps you think Aaron Judge is on the verge of an MVP season this year? With futures/outrights, you can wager on a long-term outcome before the season even has begun!

Loyalty programs

When selecting a sportsbook to wager with, it’s important to remember that you, as a customer, have a choice to take your business where you are valued most. Bally Bet understands that and offers bettors not one but TWO ways to earn rewards. By providing customers progressive rewards via betting activity and bringing their casino rewards program to their online offerings, Bally Bet creates one of the more extensive bettor experiences. After all, many sportsbooks reward wagers, but Bally Bet is offering rewards for achievements.

Bally Rewards

Much like several other casino brands have done when creating an online sportsbook, players using Bally Bet’s online sportsbook can rack up points connected to their Bally Rewards account. This rewards program, offered at retail Bally-owned locations, turns your wagers into reward points that can be exchanged for free plays and cash at casino locations. The in-person perks are fantastic, with some levels of the program offering free valet parking, discounted hotel stays, an annual cruise, and a VIP host. While the online rewards have a small payout, racking up points can be beneficial when visiting a Bally’s location.

Trophy Case

The rewards program built to work for online users is the Trophy Case program. Bettors can earn trophies and bonuses by completing specific accomplishments such as:

  • Betting on a particular sport or league
  • Placing certain bet types
  • Winning certain bet types
  • Going on a winning streak
  • And more!

Each trophy you can win on Bally Bet has multiple tiers with increasing rewards attached. Think of it this way, the more you bet, the more you win, and the larger the free bet credit you can receive! Trophies are a fantastic way to track your achievements as well as benefit from them.

Promotions

“Easy to find, hard to ignore” seems to be Bally Bet’s mantra when it comes to the promotions offered to bettors on a daily and weekly basis. Bally Bet doesn’t try and hide anything from its customers, as they’ve created a dedicated page specifically for promotions. In the past, here’s a taste of what Bally Bet has offered. We anticipate similar in New York:

  • Collapse Insurance – If your team enters the 4th quarter up by a certain number of points and ends up tying or losing, Bally Bet will issue a refund up to $25 via a free bet on any pre-game money line and spread wagers placed on your team.
  • Free Bet with Parlay – Place any parlay with four or more legs and get a $5 free bet as a reward. That’s it. That’s the promo. No strings attached. Simple.
  • Multi-Redeemable Bonus – Place a $50 or more bet on a specific set of games and get a $10 free bet to use on the weekend. If that sounds like a fantastic promo, just wait because it gets better. Bally Bet will often allow you to claim this bonus multiple times over a specific period.
  • Monday Happy Hour Lines – Bettors can access reduced spread lines of -105 for every Pro-Football game starting Monday from 1 PM to Kickoff! Start your week off with a bang on Bally Bet and some fantastic spreads!

Support

While Bally Bet strives to create a painless and worry-free experience for its customers, issues can always arise from the slightest of actions. Luckily, Bally Bet’s customer support is available 24/7 and can give you instant assistance with any problem you may have.

Available through the “More” tab on the mobile app and then by clicking the “Contact Us” page at the top of the desktop navigation, you’ll be taken to Bally Bet’s support page and offered four different options to solve your problem.

The first is a live chat with one of Bally Bet’s Customer Service representatives by clicking on the “Support” bubble at the bottom right of your screen. Once the chat window is open, you’ll be greeted by a few frequently asked questions on the off chance your question can be resolved without delay. From there, if the FAQs aren’t much help, a representative will be there to help talk through a solution.

If your issue is not time-sensitive, you can also send an e-mail to Bally Bet’s customer support. If this is the best option for you, you can reach Bally Bet support here: support@ballybet.com.

If live chat and e-mail don’t feel like they’re effective ways for your problem to be solved, you can also speak to Bally Bet support directly by calling an agent at 844-844-3238. Bally Bet puts their customers first, and each customer service representative we spoke with provided answers, insights, and top-tier support.

And if you’re the kind of person who loves to research a problem and solve it themselves, the Bally Bet FAQ page is jampacked with information that you may find useful and helpful on your quest for solutions.

The Last Word on Bally Bet

While we’re still waiting for the official announcement as to what Bally Bet can offer New Yorkers, it’s apparent that despite their small(er) operations in only a handful of states, Bally Bet has all the makings of a big-time player in the online sportsbook industry. With mobile and desktop interfaces that are intuitive and user-friendly, to a slew of daily, weekly and monthly promotions, Bally Bet is putting customer satisfaction as their top priority and it shows. As a fiercely competitive online sportsbook market begins to materialize in New York, bettors within the Empire State should get excited for Bally Bet’s initial rollout, and it’s sure to be customer-friendly in more ways than one. Big picture: Bally Bet is gunning for the top spot of New York’s legal sports betting industry, and they’re looking like a real contender.
