After quietly making its debut in West Virginia back in September of 2020, Betly Sportsbook is officially headed to Tennessee. The expansion will mark just the second state to acquire Betly’s services.
The mobile app tailored for Tennessee is currently awaiting an official launch, so it isn’t available just yet. But when it is, Betly Sportsbook will be offering all new, first-time users a risk-free wager worth up t0 $100.
Betly TN Bonus Offer
As prefaced above, Betly Sportsbook is offering all new, first-time users the opportunity to place their first wager risk-free, up to $100. In order to take advantage of this great offer, all users need to do is create an account, make a deposit, and place a wager. That’s it! If the wager loses, players will receive 100% of the original stake back in the form of a free bet. This offer is capped at $100, so anything lost beyond that amount on your first wager will not be refunded. The free bet can be used on any sport or bet type, but will expire if not used within 30 days of issuance. Players will not want to miss out on this bonus.

How to Register on Betly Sportsbook TN
Creating an account with Betly Sportsbook is very simple. Their sign-up process is easy, convenient, and most importantly 100% safe and secure. Any and all information provided to Betly Sportsbook will remain confidential.
All players must be at least 21 years or older in order to register for an account. Players are not required to be a resident of Tennessee to sign up, however they will need to be physically located within state lines in order to successfully place any legal wagers. Generally speaking, the sign-up process can be completed in any state.
One feature of Betly’s registration form that sticks out compared to the majority of other sportsbooks is their option to scan an identity document to autofill the required fields. Players can scan their driver’s license or state identification card and let Betly do the rest!
As far as the required information goes, it’s nothing out of the ordinary. Players will be asked to enter their first name, last name, date of birth, email address, phone number, home address, and the last four digits of their social security number. Beyond that, users will just need to select a few security questions and answers before wrapping up the registration process and getting ready to place some wagers!
Banking with Betly Sportsbook
Betly Sportsbook is still very much in its early stages. As a result of this, their banking options are extremely limited. We’ll keep our fingers crossed that the brand’s Tennessee launch will mark the debut of new banking choices.
At the moment, players will need to choose between two deposit methods:
- Play+ prepaid card: As one of the leading banking options at just about every sportsbook in the United States, Play+ prepaid cards are always reliable. Players can enroll with Betly to receive their card and use it to digitally deposit funds using a credit card, debit card, online banking, or PayPal as a funding source. Players will also receive a physical version of the card in the mail within 10-14 days after enrollment. While most sportsbooks offer separate deposit options for credit and debit cards, Play+ on Betly Sportsbook is basically a one-stop shop for all of them.
- PayNearMe (Cash): Another extremely common and popular deposit method, PayNearMe will cover any and all cash deposits. Players can travel to any nearby retail location that offers PayNearMe’s services and upload cash directly into their sportsbook account. CVS, 7-Eleven, Walmart, and Family Dollar are just a few of the many big names that provide PayNearMe’s services.
As far as withdrawals go, Betly Sportsbook players will be even more limited. Both Play+ prepaid cards and PayNearMe act as a one way street when it comes to uploading funds, meaning a different method will be required in order to withdraw any winnings.
Players will likely need to use a Play+ card to withdraw funds from their Betly account. We do anticipate that Betly will improve it’s banking options before launching in the TN market, otherwise they will struggle to keep up.
Betly Sportsbook Platforms: Mobile & Desktop
Despite lacking a bit of variety in the banking department, Betly Sportsbook’s mobile app and desktop website are both on par with the other major players.
Before placing any legal bets through the mobile app, players will need to turn on their location settings and allow the app to track their whereabouts. This is known as geolocation, which is the process of identifying one’s location by means of digital information processed through the internet. Every single legal mobile sports betting app is required to have this feature implemented into their operations.
Players who choose to place their wagers on a desktop computer will likely be required to download a geolocation software that will serve the same purpose as activating location settings on a mobile device. There is no way around this, so don’t be alarmed and don’t worry, nobody is actually tracking your location for anything outside of legal gambling regulation purposes.
Mobile App Overview
Betly Sportsbook’s mobile app is available to download on both iOS and Android platforms. Players who wish to download the app for Android will need to do so directly from Betly.com. The app features an attractive layout backed by a unique color scheme, with bright yellow detailing that really makes everything pop. In terms of performance, the app is quick, responsive, and can be easily navigated using the five tabs listed at the bottom of the screen:
- Home: Very self-explanatory, the home tab is your one-way ticket back to the main menu.
- All Sports: Rather than opening a new page, this tab simply pulls out the side menu that lists all of the available sports markets being offered by Betly. Players can browse through all of the options and view a wider selection of markets by clicking on the sport or event of their choice.
- Betslip: The betslip tab is used to place any and all action with Betly Sportsbook. Players can select any game or event and view their betting options in this tab. Between standard single bets, parlays, teasers, or Round Robins, the possibilities are endless.
- Promotions: This tab will house any and all promotions currently being offered by Betly Sportsbook. At the moment, they do not have anything to offer outside of their new-user risk-free wager, however they did make a note to let future players know that they are working hard on some awesome new promotions!
- Menu: Similar to the ‘All Sports’ tab, clicking on the Menu tab simply pulls out a side menu that offers important information such as copyright terms, privacy policies, terms of service, house rules, FAQs, and more.
The desktop version of Betly Sportsbook is a mirror image of their mobile app. The only major difference is that any games added to the bet slip will pop up on the righthand side of the screen, rather than in the ‘Betslip’ tab on the mobile app. The same goes for the ‘All Sports’ tab, which will always be available to view on the lefthand side of the desktop layout, even without clicking on it first.
One major benefit in using the desktop website rather than the mobile app is the amount of space displayed on a computer screen. Everything is a lot more spacious and spread out, making this layout easier to follow than the mobile app.
Available Sports Markets
Betly Sportsbook offers action on just about every major sports market or event that a bettor could possibly want. Players who choose to place their bets with Betly Sportsbook will have access to every American professional league, collegiate sports, and tons of events taking place overseas. The full list includes, but is certainly not limited to, the following sports markets and events:
- Football (NFL, NCAAF)
- Basketball (NBA, NCAAB)
- Baseball (MLB)
- Hockey (NHL)
- Fighting (Boxing, MMA)
- Auto Racing
One of the greatest aspects of sports betting in Tennessee is the simple fact that they did not impose any laws against wagering on local college teams. States like New Jersey, New York, and Virginia do not allow their residents to bet on their local universities, however this will not be an issue for players in the Volunteer State.
Available Bet Types
As previously mentioned above, players will find a variety of bet types to choose from as soon as they add at least one game into their bet slip. Upon adding two or more games, players will have the option to place either a parlay, teaser, or Round Robin. If just selecting a single game or straight bet, Betly has you covered with all of the classics:
- Spread bets
- Totals (Over/Under)
- Player props
- Live betting
Regardless of which sportsbook is being used, any and all legal sports betting done in the state of Tennessee is regulated by the Tennessee Education Lottery. This organization protects the personal information of millions of Tennessee residents so that players can feel confident and comfortable.
Betly Sportsbook strives to create a positive environment that can help their players play within their own means. They have an entire section dedicated to responsible gaming that allows user to adjust their own preferences, such as:
- Set weekly wager limits
- Set loss and deposit limits
- Enroll in Self-Exclusion
- Close your account
The responsible gaming section of the app and website also offers a ton of useful links and resources that can hopefully further help anyone in need.
Customer Support on Betly TN
Another area that is slightly lacking on the Betly Sportsbook app is their customer service department. It can be rather difficult to find, as the only information regarding customer support is buried deep in the FAQ section of the app. There is little contact information offered outside of the email address and phone number listed, and no hours of operation are noted either. Players who wish to speak with a representative can try either one of the following methods:
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Phone: (304)-238-227
- Twitter: @betlysports
As mentioned above, it is unclear as to which hours these services will be available. Another major drawback when it comes to Betly’s customer support is their lack of a live chat option. Any email requests should get tended too quickly, however it is always nice to have live chat available.
Betly Sportsbook promotions
As previously touched upon in the mobile app overview, there isn’t really much to say about Betly’s current promotional tab. They’ve made it a point to let users know that new promotions are on the way, and that’s about it.
While awaiting those new promotions, players can take advantage of the daily ‘Betly Boosts’ that are offered under the ‘All Sports’ menu. Each day, one random market will be offered to Betly players with special boosted odds. For example, they might offer an NFL wide receiver like AJ Brown to go over his receiving yards prop at +120 odds, boosted from the original odds of -120. This type of value is unmatched and gives players a serious advantage on whichever market is being offered that day.
Betly loyalty program
It remains to be seen if Betly Sportsbook Tennessee will implement the same loyalty rewards structure offered to their West Virginia clientele. If they do, players can expect to earn 1 point for every $10 wagered on sports. Every 100 points totaled will equal $1 in rewards. If this structure is used in Tennessee, players are going to be able to rack up rewards very quickly – but time will tell. We’ll update you after launch with what’s available.
More About Betly Sportsbook
Originally launched in September 2020, Betly Sportsbook is the mobile betting extension of a pair of twin casinos located in West Virginia. Owned and operated by Delaware North Companies Gaming and Entertainment, Inc, the current version of the app was created to go hand-in-hand with the Mardi Gras and Wheeling Island casinos. Many customers who partake in retail sports betting at either of these locations have become accustomed to the app and website, offering nothing but positive feedback. This has lead to an expansion to other states, most notably starting with Tennessee.
