Review of 1Vice sportsbook – online sport betting
1Vice is an average performer on the American betting market. They are not so widely recognized as BetOnline or BetDSI, despite this fact they provide the majority of features which can offer those bookmakers. 1Vice sportsbook is not aimed at becoming the biggest and most powerful betting company, though they are trying to provide the most convenient and attractive betting conditions, secure and fast payouts.
1Vice betting site was introduced in 2011. It is registered in San Jose, Costa Rica. At first the company was a member of RDG Corp. But then 1Vice managed to split and become an independent bookmaker. It happened in 2014. After that they rapidly increased their customer base and raised their SBR ranking from D to C.
Having obtained an international license the sportsbook is able to provide services worldwide. Of course the lion`s share of their customers consists of American bettors. The bookie provides both sport betting services and casino games. Users can also try their hand in playing live dealers games.
We can`t say that 1Vice is one of the most promising sportsbooks on the US market. It seems they will never become top bookmaker. Meanwhile they severely improved their position after splitting up with Apex Group. They are middle-tier sportsbook but customers can be confident that their deposits won`t be cut or confiscated.
1Vice sportsbook has remained some aspects of Apex Sportsbook Group. For example signing in is very simple and requires just several seconds. Signing in window is located on the home page. Newcomer must enter his name, last name, phone number, email and password. Don`t forget about captcha. Once you entered that you are logged in.
After you get logged you can deposit your account and wager. Placing bets is simple and traditional. 1Vice software is rather secure, though it has no strong features. On the top of the home page there is a line with available betting types. They include straights, teasers, parlays, if win only, round robin, win reverse, if win or tie and action reverse. After picking the proper betting type, press Continue and the page will reload with sports available for 1Vice betting.

Betting coverage and odds
Like the majority of American sportsbooks 1Vice online betting is focused on NBA, NHL, MLB and NFL. Nevertheless except for these leagues the bookie covers also WNBA, Mexican and Korean baseball, KHL and some European hockey leagues, the National Rugby League, European golf, handball, cricket and some other sports.
1Vice online sport betting provides all the popular American betting options. As for European bettors they are unlikely to be satisfied with the available number of markets. Bookie provides big number of props and futures on American leagues. MLB, NFL and NBA matches are also offered for live bets. If you like you can wager over the phone.
Fans of European soccer are able to place bets on Champions League, EuropaLeague, top European championships, as well as Copa Libertadores, MLS, Brazilian and Argentinean leagues.
Mobile betting and promotions
Mobile version of 1Vice is not very functional. It`s not very convenient either. Meanwhile customers can try their hand in playing casino games and betting on sport using their mobile devices.
Reward program of 1Vice sportsbook provides generous 150% welcome bonus. Maximum bonus sum is $2500. Also they provide insurance. Bettors can get up to 1500 US dollars of their previous month lost amount. There are also periodical contests and promotions dedicated to top events.
1Vice is ranked C+ by SBR. The company shows positive tendency in recent years. But in previous years there were a lot of negative 1Vice reviews. Customers complained of confiscating winnings. Now 1Vice is focused on recreational players. Professional players won`t choose it as playing platform due to the short list of available sports and banking methods.
