    I've had the bconnected sports betting app for a couple years now and for about the past year I've had issues with it. I can log in but whenever I want to submit a bet I get a weird error. I've tried everything to get it to work and the sportsbook at the Cal wasn't able to help me either.

    I want to switch over to a different betting app and was wondering what the "best" one is. I know a lot of this is subjective. Location isn't all that critical as I usually stay downtown and visit the strip every trip or so. The app will mostly be used for last minute bets and long shot parlays for small dollar amounts which are annoying to do at the sports book. Any large bets will be placed directly at a sports book this is more for convenience/backup.

    My main question are:
    If there's any major difference between them, which app has the best spreads? (I bet mostly NFL)
    As stated above, I love parlays (and the occasional prop bet) so I'd like to have a lot of options with those.
    Which app is the easiest to withdraw money from?

    I'm hoping to deposit some cash on my next trip and will most likely just leave it in there unless I get a few big wins and decide to pull money out.

    Anyways, I'd love to hear your experiences with the various apps in terms of signup, ease of deposits/withdrawls, betting options available within the app, etc.

    Thanks in advance

    I've had Stations for several years now and have had no problems. As you probably know, there are several locations so you should fine it convenient to make a deposit. They have the full range of betting options including parlays and futures. The only comparison I know of is the former Cantor and given, that I am no fan of their books (M, Palms, others) I definitely would not sign up for their account.

    Thanks for the info @azbob. As of now I'm leaning towards Stations and MGM...I like that I can handle the Stations app downtown at El Cortez if need be. Is it pretty quick to withdraw or add funds once your account is set up or do they make you jump through any hoops?

    Do any of the apps still offer sign up bonuses or free money for depositing or making first bets?

    There's a coupon in the ACG for free $25 bet for William Hill - new accounts only.

    I plan on using this coupon unless there's a better offer that someone else knows about.

    That's a great deal I never saw it in there. I like that they have locations just about everywhere and even have kiosks for adding funds which is pretty convenient. Might be leaning towards that app now if not just to try out and take advantage of the free $25

    I exclusively used the William Hill app on my trip during the last NFL season. Placing bets is super easy, but always read CAREFULLY before you submit (like a dumbass, I accidentally bet the under instead of the over on SNF and lost a bit... that stung).

    WH is especially handy for the reason you mention... there are locations everywhere in LV. Cashing out my account took literally one minute at Hooters.

    I'm planning on signing up for the Boyd app on my upcoming trip since I'll be watching everything at the Cal sportsbook, which I fell in love with on my last trip.

    I saw they're offering up to a $50 dining credit for new sign ups, but I can't find a single detail online about that promotion. If anyone has taken advantage of it, I'd appreciate some feedback.

    Might check that out on my next trip. Last time I did the $25 William Hill coupon. Turned it into $47 or so of real money making three bets with the $25 bonus only, two won, one lost. Sign up is not very intuitive, but the guy at the Hooters William Hill sports book was very helpful in getting it set up. Was also easy to withdraw the funds at the end of my trip from the William Hill at Downtown Grand. Just remember your account number! There are William Hill books all over, so that makes it convenient if you want to withdraw or add funds.

    Is there a reason why Vegas goers do not use the bigger betting apps as all the above use local Apps?

    I use Bodog and have no issues while in Vegas. Money easy going on/out and has good betting options. Have read many reviews and these sites are rarely mentioned - am I missing something?

    The difference between Stations, Boyd, Cantor etc. and an offshore company like Bodog is that Vegas Sportsbetting is regulated and legal in Nevada. You can go to any of their local casinos and get paid in cash. The road is littered with offshore on-line gaming companies that ripped off their customers.

    Speaking of Cantor, they have a great sign up bonus where you can get $50 in matched bets from each of the 7 Casinos they work with in Vegas. That's like $350 in free money. I did it in December. It's supposed to run through October, but you never know on these deals.

    I think the point of the thread was which were the best apps to use at *legal* sports books in Las Vegas, sanctioned by the Gaming Control Board. I'm not judging, just sayin'. :poke: Not everyone bets or wants to bet online.

    The best online betting apps could be an entire separate thread. :D

    This is intriguing. I don't see anything in the PDF that says you can do it at multiple books. So did you open it at one, deposit $50 and then went around to the other books and deposited money and got matches from each? Or did you open multiple accounts?

    Also looks like you have to wager the entire amount plus the deposit before you can withdraw the match, right?

    Each of the 7 books is a separate account. When you sign into the app you tell it which casino/account you want to use. All funds and bets are kept separate. Winnings have to be cashed out at each casino. For each casino we deposited $50 and were able to wager $100. We hedged it so we couldn't lose. 2 exceptions. M & Venetian required 100 deposits,...but still only required the 50 bet to get the 50 match

    Awesome, thanks for the info! Didn't realize each book had it's own account. I thought it would be like the William Hill app, which is just one account per person.

    So for those of us looking for any edge we can get, what stops me from depositing the $350 and getting $350 in match plays then betting $350 on side A and $350 on side B as to freeroll (mostly) the process?

    Nothing. That's basically what we did. In our case, we'd bet 2/3 on the side we thought would win and 1/3 on the opposite side. If it won we'd get a nice payoff. If it lost, we broke even. I suggest placing your counter bets at different casinos rather than splitting on both sides at the same joint. It's more seemly and has the side benefit of only having to return to 1/2 the books to collect your winnings.

    I think they all do. I know WH does for major (i.e. Prime time) NFL games.
