MaximBet is the new kid on the sports betting block, a product of digital gaming company Carousel Group and media brand Maxim. The online bookmaker recently began operations in Colorado with the help of a partnership with Johnny Nolan’s Casino in Cripple Creek.
It is expected that the brand will roll out into other states in the coming months.

Initially launched as Sportsbetting.com, the sportsbook was rebranded after Carousel landed a partnership with popular men’s magazine Maxim.
Sportsbetting.com had gone live back in September of 2020, but an agreement with Maxim earlier this year initiated the transition to MaximBet. At the time, Carousel and Maxim had announced a three-month transition period which they weren’t quite able to keep.
The MaximBet rebranding process ended seamlessly on September 6th, 2021, with all Sportsbetting.com users able to use their same logins to access the new site. This conversion included the transfer of all betting history and currently placed bets to the new sportsbook. The loyalty program was also included in the switch.
All in all, the rebrand was more of a facelift than an overhaul of the sportsbook’s user interface. Almost all of the same features are available at the new site, with the addition of a few more promotional incentives.
MaximBet is currently only available in Colorado but is expected to roll out through the US over the coming year. Other states inked in agreements to host the sportsbook include Arizona, Indiana, Iowa, and New Jersey.
The most recent announcement from the Carousel Group reported a partnership with the White Mountain Apache Tribe in Arizona. The tribe is the owner of the Hon-Dah Resort Casino, giving MaximBet the leverage it needs to enter the state. We expect a launch of MaximBet Arizona within the first quarter of 2022.
Although the brand has declared plans to expand into Indiana, Iowa, and New Jersey, actual dates have yet to be set.
MaximBet Betting Markets
One of the key selling points found by our MaximBet Sportsbook review is the wide range of sports and leagues available. The site offers 18 sports including all major US Sports such as: Basketball, Baseball, Football, Hockey, UFC and NASCAR. Both pre-match and live betting options are on offer for a vast majority of sports.
As you’d expect, the NFL is the most wagered on football league at Maxim. Bettors will, however, get the chance to bet on CFL and NCAA games as well. Live betting is available for select football games each week of the season.
While the NBA bets dominate the basketball section of the bookmaker, the NCAA, WNBA, and international leagues are also available. The most popular international leagues come from Chile, Uruguay, and Puerto Rico.
Our Maximbet Sportsbook review found baseball to be almost entirely MLB based bets. You can find a variety of live betting and pre-match options throughout the season. Popular bet types include moneylines, points spreads, totals, and over/unders.
Both the NHL and a number of international hockey leagues can be bet on at the sportsbook. The CHL and Kontinental Hockey League in Russia are the two most popular leagues out of the US.
Soccer is easily the most wagered on international sport at Maxim. While the MLS is available, international leagues like the English Premier League, La Liga, and UEFA Champions League are the top betting markets.

MaximBet Banking Methods
4 payment options were found to be available to fund your account by our Maximbet Sportsbook review:
- Online Banking
- Bank transfer (ACH eCheck)
Processing times on deposits are instant, whereas withdrawals can take up to 3-5 business days based on the method used. There are no fees charged on the side of the bookmaker for either deposits or withdrawals.
We expect the number of payment options to increase as the sportsbook begins to find its feet. Likely additions include PayPal, PayNearMe, Neteller, and Apple+. In-person payments may also be added at Johnny Nolan’s Casino in Cripple Creek.
MaximBet Customer Service
Our MaximBet Sportsbook review wouldn’t be complete without a look at the bookmaker’s customer service. At the moment, users can contact customer support through three channels: live chat, email, and telephone. All three methods are available 24/7.
Live chat is the recommended method of contacting support with response times of under a minute. To launch chat you must click the ‘LIVE CHAT’ widget found at the bottom of each webpage.
The ‘Leave a message’ option in the ‘Help’ section allows users to send messages and get replies back directly to their email. Email responses can take anywhere between 2-24 hours, based on the number of inquiries.
Requesting a callback will result in a support agent getting back to you as soon as they can. Typically queues are quite small, with only a few minutes of wait time before an agent gets back to you.
MaximBet Sportsbook Review Verdict
Our MaximBet Sportsbook review concludes that the bookmaker is one of the better options for online sports betting in Colorado. The main strengths of the Maxim Sportsbook are the great selection of sports and leagues to choose from and the top-class mobile app. Users can also take part in a variety of great promos, which provide chances to build your bankroll.
Where our Maximbet Sportsbook review found room for improvement is through the addition of more payment options. For the time being, only payment options are available. We do expect this to change in the future as the brand begins to expand.
