BetRivers Sportsbook wasn't one of the first online sports betting operators to launch in Vermont as it did not submit a license application during the August 2023 window and didin't sent in the paperwork ahead of the January 11, 2024 launch. However, that doesn’t mean BetRivers won’t apply at some point in the emerging market.

With that in mind, we’ve prepared a review of what BetRivers has to offer should the company plan to bring its platform to Vermont, as well as what the path to legalization looks like.

No, BetRivers Sportsbook is not legal in Vermont. Online sports betting in Vermont launched in January 2024, and BetRivers has yet to apply for a Vermont gambling operator license. The sportsbooks that have applied so far are BetMGM, DraftKings, Fanatics, FanDuel, and PENN Entertainment (ESPN Bet); DraftKings, Fanatics, and FanDuel are the only operators that have launched so far.

Which bonus will BetRivers offer when it goes live?

BetRivers can offer a multitude of Vermont sports betting promos when it goes live in the state, but we won’t know for certain until the company has been granted a license and establishes its “go live” date. In other states, BetRivers has offered deposit matches and second-chance bets as part of its welcome offers, and we’ll detail below how those bonuses work. Once the operator announces plans to launch in VT, we will update this section.

Joining BetRivers Sportsbook in Vermont and claiming the promo

Once the operator is granted a license and sets up its Vermont online sportsbook, joining BetRivers and claiming the promo won’t take very long at all. In fact, most users will have completed the registration process in about five minutes. Here are the steps you’ll need to take.

  1. Navigate to the registration page: VTBetting.com will link this page directly to BetRivers’ registration form and provide any necessary promo codes to ensure you’re getting the best bonus possible while signing up.
  2. Create your account: Once you’re at the form, you’ll need to enter a username you’d like to use, your email address, and a password to create your account.
  3. Enter your personal information: Next, you’ll need to list your legal name, birthdate, and address as they appear on your driver’s license or other government-issued ID. You’ll also need to provide the last four digits of your Social Security number to verify your identity.
  4. Accept the terms and conditions: After that, you’ll need to check a couple of boxes verifying that you agree to the terms of service and privacy policy and that the information you entered is complete and accurate. Once that is done, you’ll be sent a confirmation email from BetRivers to finalize your account creation.
  5. Make a real-money deposit: Finally, you’ll need to make a real-money deposit to finance your betting bankroll (payment methods are listed below). Subsequently, you’ll be able to place your first wager. Keep in mind any necessary details on the bonus such as a wager minimum or a deposit amount that can maximize the bonus offer.

Fixing problems if the BetRivers Vermont bonus is not working

If the BetRivers Vermont bonus is not working following its launch, there are a few ways to try to fix the problem. The first and most important step is to make sure you’ve actually met all necessary steps toward claiming the bonus such as making a real-money deposit or placing an eligible wager. Some bet types or odds won’t qualify for the bonus, and if the offer is a second-chance bet, it could take up to 72 hours after the bet settles as a loss for the bonus to show up.

Once you’ve confirmed all criteria are met, you can try logging out of your account and logging in again, as sometimes, that is enough to refresh the bonuses page. Closing out of your app or web browser and restarting your device could do the trick as well. If all those steps don’t work, you’ll need to get in touch with BetRivers’ customer support team.

Common terms and conditions for the BetRivers bonus in other states

Based on the rules and regulations for the BetRivers bonus in other states, we could expect the following terms and conditions to apply if their Vermont sports betting app goes live.

  • The promo offer is limited to players who are at least 21 years old and physically located in Vermont.
  • This bonus is limited to one offer per person.
  • Bonus credits cannot be withdrawn as cash and are non-transferable.
  • You may not combine the welcome bonus with any other offer.
  • Winning wagers made with a bonus bet will not have the value of the bonus bet included in the payout calculation.
  • The offer is void where prohibited.

Where will I be able to find the newest BetRivers promotions?

You’ll be able to find the newest BetRivers promotions here at VTBetting.com. While we won’t list each individual daily odds boost, we’ll list all active long-term promotions on this site as well as the simplified terms and conditions of the offers to make keeping up with active offers easier than ever.

How long will it take for my BetRivers promo to be credited?

We can’t say for certain how long it will take for BetRivers to credit the promo to your account because the operator hasn’t yet launched in Vermont, let alone announced any bonus offers in the state. However, once the bookmaker accelerates that process, we will update this page and site accordingly.

Different sports you will be able to bet on at BetRivers VT

BetRivers offers 18 sports markets on its platform, leaving you with plenty of options to sate your sports betting appetite. Here are some of the top options you’ll find.

  • Football: Football is far and away the most popular sport to bet on in the U.S., accounting for the largest betting handle into the billions of dollars on an annual basis.
  • Baseball: With a 162-game regular season, there are more opportunities to bet on baseball than for any other sport.
  • Soccer: BetRivers carries an impressive list of soccer markets, accepting wagers from the top European leagues, International friendlies, World Cup matches, Olympic action, and more.
  • College sports: College sports betting is permitted in Vermont, but you are prohibited from betting on Vermont-based teams outside of tournament play. For example, you could bet on the Catamounts during March Madness but not on regular season matchups.

Types of bonuses offered at BetRivers Sportsbook

BetRivers will frequently switch up its bonus offers to keep bringing new promos to bettors. This variety will be important if the bookmaker breaks into the Vermont market as generous promo offers can help stand out against competitors following the launch. Here are some of the most common types of bonuses offered at BetRivers Sportsbook.

  • Second-chance bets: BetRivers has been known to offer second-chance bets worth up to $500 for new players who don’t win their first bet on the site. Second-chance bets are usually a dollar-for-dollar match of your first wager on the site and cannot be withdrawn as cash.
  • Bonus bets: Bonus bets are bet credits that are locked into a predetermined increment, most often $10, $25, and $100. While the value of a bonus bet won’t be included in your betting payout calculation, this bonus is a great way to place wagers and win money without having to tap into your bankroll.
  • Deposit matches: Like with second chance bets, it won’t be unheard of for BetRivers to offer deposit match promos in Vermont worth up to $500. These bonus bets expire after 30 days if they are not used.
  • Daily specials: BetRivers will list certain betting markets in a “Daily Specials” section of the webpage and app that have boosted odds to increase the payout of a winning bet.

Most of the time, these boosts will add somewhere between +25 and +100 to the betting line, though it could be more.

The BetRivers betting app in Vermont

One great thing about the BetRivers Vermont betting app is that it isn’t state-specific, which means it is much easier to use while traveling out of state to another place where the bookmaker is licensed and launched. The geolocation features on your mobile device must be turned on to use the app.

Bettors using Apple devices have given a much higher app store rating (4.4/5) to BetRivers than those on Android devices (3.3/5). However, in reading through the reviews, Android users reported far more issues with the casino portion of the app than with the sportsbook. Online casino gameplay is still illegal in Vermont, so that platform will be inaccessible for VT-based players.

How to download the BetRivers app on iOS

Downloading the BetRivers app shouldn’t take more than a minute as long as you have a steady internet connection. Here’s how you can get started.

  1. Log into the App Store on your iOS device.
  2. Search for “BetRivers Casino and & Sportsbook.”
  3. Press “Get” then “Install” to begin the download process.

Once the app is fully installed, you can create a new BetRivers account if you haven’t already done so; otherwise, you can log in with your existing credentials.

How to download the BetRivers app on Android

Want to download the BetRivers app on your Android device? It’s easy and free! Here’s what to do.

  1. Access the Google Play Store on your Android device
  2. Search for “BetRivers Casino and & Sportsbook.”
  3. Press “Install” and let the download complete.

It’s that simple! Afterward, be sure to claim the welcome bonus when creating your BetRivers account.

BetRivers VT possible payment options

BetRivers has a reasonable list of possible payment options it could bring to VT, though there is certainly some room for expansion in this area. Keep in mind that with sports betting in Vermont being 100% online, cash options won’t be supported as they are in other states. Here are the options we expect to see.

Deposit

  • Credit/Debit Card: Oftentimes the easiest way to finance your account, BetRivers accepts Visa and Mastercard for deposits. However, these are both one-way streets, as you won’t be able to withdraw with either option.
  • Venmo: Venmo is one of the most popular e-wallet payment apps, and it is becoming more prevalent among sports betting operators. BetRivers accepts Venmo for deposits but has stopped short of approving it for withdrawals.
  • Online Banking: Of the deposit methods listed in this section, online banking is the only one that functions for withdrawals as well. BetRivers will never pull funds from your bank account without your permission and withdrawals are nearly instantaneous once the request is approved.

Withdrawal

  • PayPal: Like Venmo, PayPal can function as a mobile app to fund your account, but unlike Venmo, PayPal works for withdrawals to boot. PayPal is one of the most common online payment processors utilized by sports betting companies.
  • Play+: Think of a Play+ card as a cross between an ATM card and a gift card. You can load funds onto the card and get to choose where you can offload those funds. Additionally, you can withdraw your BetRivers winnings to load the card and then get cash at the ATM.
  • By Check: One of the more “old school” options, you can also choose to have BetRivers send you a check through the mail. Keep in mind that checks are sent via USPS, so it may take 3-15 days for the check to arrive.

Customer support at BetRivers Sportsbook Vermont

BetRivers’ customer support FAQ pages are decent and will likely resolve most issues sportsbook users in Vermont may encounter, though they could stand to be a bit more organized. A support chat feature is also available and can get you connected with a real person if needed. Additionally, you can call 1-800-648-4843 to reach BetRivers’ customer service team or reach out via email (though it could take up to 72 hours for an email response).
