Barstool Sportsbook offers an abundance of betting options, as well as promotions that start from the first day you sign up with the online sportsbook, and it could be a candidate to launch in Maine should the state legalize sports betting.

On this page we’ll review what Barstool could offer sports bettors in Maine, starting with its welcome bonus for new users and other promotions for sports bettors and also including your options for betting on sports, what the sportsbook app has to offer and how Barstool measures up against some of your other potential sports betting options.

Barstool Sportsbook Maine welcome bonus — the fine print!

Once you’ve created an account, here are the steps to take to ensure you benefit from Barstool’s offers for new users.

  • No deposit bonus: When you create an account at Barstool, if you’ve never created one before, the sportsbook will add the $10 in bonus cash. You don’t need to opt into the promotion, but you will need to meet a 1x playthrough requirement on bets with odds of -200 or longer to unlock the bonus funds for withdrawal.
  • Risk-free first bet: Once you’ve opened an account, make a deposit and place your first bet. If that bet loses, Barstool will issue a refund in bonus money equal to the amount of your bet, up to $1,000. The bonus money has the same 1x playthrough requirement at odds of -200 or longer. Bonus money does not expire, though, as long as you use some of it at least once every 30 days.

Can I trust Barstool Sportsbook?

Yes, Barstool Sportsbook is a legitimate sportsbook. At the time of this review, it had already received regulatory approval to launch its sportsbook in nine states, indicating that it is a trustworthy sports betting option.

Should it launch in Maine, it also will comply with sports betting laws in that state. Among other things, this means you will need to meet the state’s age requirement — likely 21 — to bet on sports at Barstool, and you’ll also need to be within state lines to place any sports bets. Barstool and other legal sportsbooks will check your age when you create an account and use geolocation technology to ensure you’re in the state.

Getting started at Barstool Sportsbook in Maine

To sign up at Barstool, head to the sportsbook website, choose “Log In” and then “Create New Account.” If you attempt to register before Barstool is live in Maine you’ll get a message telling you exactly that. You still can create your account, though. To do so, you’ll need to provide the following details:

  • First and last name
  • Home address
  • Email
  • Phone number
  • Date of birth
  • Last four digits of your Social Security number

You’ll need to create both a username and password. Then you must check boxes confirming you’re of legal betting age and that you agree to Barstool’s terms and conditions. After submitting the form, you’ll receive a passcode from Barstool via your phone or email. After you enter the passcode, your account will be ready to use.

How do I download the Barstool Sportsbook ME app?

Technically, you don’t need to use the Barstool Sportsbook app. If you choose, you can do all your account organizing and wagering on the Barstool website. However, in our estimation, the app makes mobile betting much easier. Here’s how to download it for Android and iOS:

  • How to download the Barstool Sportsbook iOS app: Access the sportsbook website via a mobile browser and tap “Download on the App Store.” Doing so opens the Apple App Store to Barstool’s page, and you can download it from there.
  • How to download the Barstool Sportsbook Android app: Follow the same steps as above, except this time you’ll choose the Android download option.

Where do I find Barstool promotions?

On the Barstool app just select “Promotions,” which will appear toward the top of your screen. If you’re on the webpage, there’s a “Promotions” link in the left menu.

The first thing you should know about Barstool promotions is that most of them require you to opt-in. You can do this by going to the promotions page, clicking a specific promotion and then tapping the button to opt-in.

The second thing to be conscious of is that many Barstool promos can be a little tricky to understand. To check the details, click the “More Info” button and read through each promotion carefully. And no, it’s not our idea of a good time either, but doing so could be the difference between getting an extra $100 in bonus cash and missing out because of a technicality.

Why should I choose the Barstool Sportsbook app?

Here are some of the reasons Barstool might be an attractive sports betting location for you:

  • The company name: If you’re already a fan of the media company, you might find the sportsbook to be a good fit, too. If you haven’t signed up already.
  • Distinct promotions: The promotions that you’ll encounter at Barstool are among the most distinct offers we’ve seen at any US sportsbook. Some deals reward you for long home runs, others with overall odds increases based on how many users partake in a contest.
  • Rewards: Another benefit of being a Barstool user is that you’re automatically enrolled in the mychoice Rewards program, letting you earn points for every bet you place. You can redeem points for various comps, free bets and other perks.

What won’t I like about the Barstool Sportsbook app?

Here are some of the main issues to be aware of:

  • Poor reputation: Barstool and its founder Dave Portnoy have faced a variety of controversies over the years, including allegations of sexism, racism and normalizing rape culture. Simply Googling “Barstool controversies” will bring up a lengthy and more detailed list.
  • Expensive and confusing promos: The promotions at Barstool can be confusing sometimes and expensive to enter, as well. Both of these aspects make the bonuses not quite as worthwhile.
  • Somewhat confusing bet slip: The Barstool bet slip also has a few too many buttons. There’s “Working,” “Active” and “Settled.” Below that you’ll find “Standard Bets,” “Custom Parlays,” “Teasers” and “Round Robins.” Overall, the custom parlays listing just seems to muddle things more than anything. This can be especially troublesome for newer bettors.

What kind of bets can I make at Barstool sports betting?

One thing that Barstool Sportsbook definitely does not lack for is betting options, including all the bets you’d expect at a popular sportsbook. Here’s an example of a game listing to help go over the main choices you’ll find at the sportsbook:

 SpreadMoneylineTotal
New York Jets+7.5 (-112)+265Over 53.5 (-105)
New England Patriots-7.5 (-109)-335Under 53.5 (-113)
  • Moneylines: Place a bet on one side or the other to win the game. The Patriots are the favorites in the example above, indicated by the negative moneyline number. The number (-335) means that to win $100 you would need to bet $335 on New England. Meanwhile, the Jets’ +265 means you would win $265 on a successful $100 bet.
  • Spreads: With a spread of 7.5, you can either bet on the favored Patriots (at -7.5) to win by more than that number, or you can bet on the underdog Jets (at +7.5) to avoid losing by more than that number. The odds on each side of the bet also appear as part of the listing.
  • Totals: When it comes to totals, also called over/unders, you’re betting on the total combined score of the game. In the example above, Barstool has set the line at 53.5, so you can bet on the Jets and Patriots to combine to score over or under 53.5 points in the game.
  • Props: To find available prop bets at Barstool, click on the “More Bets” tab on the right side of the page. Here you’ll see a variety of betting options. For an NFL game, you’ll see tabs for “Game,” “First Half,” “Game Props,” “Game Touchdown,” “Quarter” and “Second Half.” All of these options basically let you make side bets on whether something specific will occur during the game.
  • Futures: Futures betting is as simple as wagering on a team to win the title at the end of the season or some other long-term outcome. At Barstool, though, you’ll find more futures bets than at most other sportsbooks. You can bet on team futures, but you also can bet on how players will finish the season in a number of statistical categories.
  • Parlays: Combine two or more bets as a single wager. The benefit is an increased potential payout, but this comes at increased risk, as well; you need to get all of your individual picks correct, or you’ll win nothing.
  • Teasers: Similar to parlays, but you can adjust the line for each of your bets in your favor. Your odds will also move based on how you tease the line.
  • Round robins: Another combination of multiple bets, though this time you can still win some money if you don’t get all of your picks correct.
  • Live betting: And lastly we have betting on games that have already kicked off. Also known as in-game betting, this type of wagering adds a new level of excitement to watching games on TV or in person. If your team goes down early, you could bet on them to come back and win, for example. It also can be fun to see how much the odds shift when a big play happens or a player leaves with foul trouble.

Can I bet on the Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens at Barstool?

Yes, you definitely can wager on a couple of the closest pro teams to Maine at Barstool Sportsbook. Barstool offers bets for all NHL games; here are some hockey-specific bets you might come across:

  • First/last goal: You can bet on a player to score at any point during a game. But betting on who will score a game’s first or last goal is more fun in our opinion, and if you end up being right, it’s definitely more profitable.
  • Period betting: When it comes to period wagering, you can place moneyline, spread and total bets just as you would for a full game. The difference is that these are bets on what happens in that 20-minute period and nothing else.
  • Grand Salami: Instead of just betting on one over/under, the Grand Salami allows you to bet on the over/under for all the NHL games on that particular day. This can be an especially fun way to bet if you just like watching hockey each night.

How do I get help at Barstool online sportsbook?

If you need assistance at Barstool, start by selecting the “Contact Support” button on the app or website. Then choose “Contact Us” and you’ll be able to request to have a Barstool rep call you back, talk to a rep in a live chat or simply send an email to the help desk.

In addition, you can search for an answer on your own by browsing the Barstool help topics or by using the support search bar.

How do I exclude myself from Barstool?

If you want to shut down your Barstool Sportsbook account, you have that option. You’ll need to log in and select “Responsible Gaming & Patron Protection.”

From here, you can choose either “Operator Self-Exclusion” or “Timeout.” Both choices allow you to shut down your account. The difference is that the timeout is for a shorter period of time (as little as three days), while self-exclusion can be for as long as five years.

Barstool also offers the additional options of putting limits on how much money you can wager and deposit or how long you can spend logged into the app/website.

Can I bet at Barstool Sportsbook in person?

There are no plans for Barstool to have a retail sportsbook in Maine at this time. If that changes, we will share all the details at PlayMaineOnline.com.

How does Barstool compare to other Maine sportsbooks?

Here is how Barstool measures up against some of the most popular legal sportsbooks in the US:

  • Barstool vs. DraftKings: DraftKings is one of the OGs of sports betting in the US at this point. It’s also one of the most popular because of how well it does at pretty much everything. The promotions at DraftKings Sportsbook offer a little more ROI than those at Barstool. We’ve found the overall odds at DraftKings to also be a little bit better.
  • Barstool vs. Caesars: Barstool’s welcome bonus of a risk-free bet for up to $1,000 sounds great, but Caesars offers a risk-free bet for up to $1,000. After that, both books have a lot of great offerings, but the overall experience, especially while using the app, is just better at Caesars than it is at Barstool.
  • Barstool vs. FanDuel: Both welcome bonuses appear the same at face value. But FanDuel’s refund in site credits offers some advantages over Barstool’s refund. Also, don’t forget that you can enter daily fantasy sports contests at FanDuel, which you can’t do at Barstool.
  • Barstool vs. BetMGM: Here’s a matchup where it’s really tough to pick a winner. The welcome offers are pretty much on par. And while we like the promotions at BetMGM better, they’re sometimes glitchy to use, especially if you’re on the website. Both rewards programs are similar, as well. If you forced us to choose we’d pick BetMGM just because of the name recognition, but we really could go either way.

Barstool FAQ

Yes, new users are eligible for a risk-free bet up to a maximum of $1,000. The offer is good only for the first bet you place with Barstool. Also, be conscious of the fact that you do not receive cashback if your bet loses, but bonus money with a 1x wagering requirement.

Not yet, but that’s largely because sports betting as a whole is not yet legal in Maine. If lawmakers legalize online sportsbooks in the Pine Tree State, Barstool likely would be a candidate to launch there.

You need to be 21 or older to play casino-style games in Maine, meaning that would also likely be the age requirement for sports betting should the state legalize the activity.

Offshore betting sites are not licensed and thus do not go through any of the vetting processes from regulators in your state that sportsbooks like Barstool do. State regulators ensure licensed sportsbooks follow the rules and uphold the standards in that state. When you use an offshore site, you are gambling with both your money and private data. We do not recommend doing so under any circumstances.

That’s the million-dollar question. Right now, the only thing we can say with any certainty is that it won’t be until at least 2022, as the most recent attempt to legalize sports betting in the state stalled out during the 2021 legislative session.
