Sports betting in California is still a ways off from becoming legal and going live. However, once the legal status changes, many of the top gambling operators like SuperBook Sportsbook will sprint to obtain a betting license and prepare to launch in what will quickly become the nation’s biggest betting market.
Here, we’ve reviewed what a SuperBook Sportsbook California launch will look like as well as what features the bookie brings to the Golden State. We’ll also walk you through how to get started with SuperBook. Let’s get into it!
Is SuperBook Sportsbook live in California?
No, SuperBook Sportsbook is not live in California. Online and in-person sports betting are both banned under CA state law and until the law changes, SuperBook will not be permitted to set up any California gambling operations. This also goes for other online sportsbooks in California.
On the 2022 ballot, CA voters overwhelmingly went against a pair of propositions that would have expanded gambling throughout the state. Proposition 26 would’ve permitted in-person sports betting at California’s tribal casinos while Proposition 27 would’ve allowed for online and mobile sports gambling operations. However, Proposition 26 saw 67% of voters go against the law’s passing, and 82% of voters went “No” on Proposition 27.
SuperBook has an uphill battle to gain entry into California, but if sports betting laws are changed during the 2024 election, expect the bookmaker to sprint to the state to be among the first to go live.
When California legalizes sports betting, SuperBook will make every effort to go live in the state ahead of launch day. After obtaining licensure, the steps for signing up at SuperBook in California and claiming the promo will look something like this:
Top bet types to be offered at SuperBook Sportsbook CA
There are many types of bets that will be coming to SuperBook Sportsbook CA once the state legalizes sports gambling. We expect these to be the go-to options for California bettors.
What kind of welcome bonus will SuperBook offer when they go live?
When SuperBook eventually goes live in California, it could offer several kinds of welcome bonuses. Due to the frequency with which the bonuses change, based on CA’s projected legalization timeline, it’s hard to pinpoint what the promo will be.
In other states, the active offer is a promo that awards bet credit in equal proportions to the amount of a player’s first wager on the site, up to $250, regardless of whether that bet wins. Bet credits are then applied at a 25% rate to subsequent bets until the credits are expended.
After the launch of sports gambling in the state, you’ll be able to find the newest SuperBook California promotions right here on CASportsBettingSites.com. We’ll simply explain the terms and conditions and link directly to the offers so you can claim them quickly and conveniently.
You can also click on the “odds boosts” tab or “featured” tab on the web browser or in the app to view unique daily offers on the platform.
Depending on what welcome offer is available, the SuperBook promo could be credited to your account within 24 hours of placing your first bet. This is the case for their current offer in other states, which gives players up to $250 in bet credits after they place their first wager.
However, if the bonus changes to, say, a second chance bet offer, the bonus would be awarded within 72 hours of a player’s first bet on SuperBook settling as a loss. Similarly, a deposit match promo would show up automatically after the player makes a real-money deposit to their SuperBook account.
Important terms and conditions for the SuperBook bonus in other states
Based on the important terms and conditions for the SuperBook welcome bonus in other states, we would anticipate the following rules would still apply for the bonus in California.
What to do if the SuperBook California bonus is not working
The SuperBook bonus will likely show up in your account within 24 hours of placing your first bet on the site. However, if the SuperBook California bonus is not working, you can often resolve the issue by logging out of your account, closing your app (or browser window), and restarting your device. If that doesn’t rectify the issue, you’ll need to get in touch with SuperBook’s customer service team, as they will have an alternate workaround for you.
Best sports you will be able to bet on using SuperBook in CA
SuperBook in CA will likely bring 12 sports betting markets along when it arrives in the state, with an abundance of leagues available to California gamblers. Here are some of the best sports you will be able to bet on by using SuperBook.
The SuperBook mobile betting app in California
SuperBook launches a new mobile betting app for each state where the bookie obtains a license, so residents will get their own California betting app for SuperBook. The app will be available for both iOS and Android users, so whichever device you’re playing on, you’ll almost certainly be covered.
One thing reviewers at both the App Store and Google Play Store mentioned was that odds with SuperBook were slightly more player-friendly than with other betting sites. They also noted quick payout times after submitting withdrawal requests.
However, the reviews weren’t always positive. Some of the app’s users found the betting interface to be a bit clunky and that it didn’t show all the lines when browsing through sporting events. Others also found the aesthetic to be a bit dated and that it lacked some visual appeal.
How to download the SuperBook app on iOS
Downloading the SuperBook app on iOS will get you to the most convenient way to make wagers with the bookie. Here’s how to get it installed.
After the download is complete, you’ll be able to create your SuperBook account if you haven’t already done so and claim the welcome bonus.
How to download the SuperBook app on Android
The process for downloading the SuperBook app on Android will look very similar to the iOS download instructions. Here’s how to install the app.
Once the installation finishes, you can log in with your existing SuperBook credentials or sign up for a new account.
SuperBook California expected payment options
SuperBook’s list of banking methods is far more limited than the gambling sites in other states. While the list could expand by the time SuperBook California launches, we expect the payment options to look something like this:
Customer support at SuperBook Sportsbook CA
SuperBook Sportsbook’s FAQ pages are quite possibly the most frustrating thing about the platform, and CA bettors may be left scratching their heads while looking for other customer support options once the platform launches in the state.
The pages are very cluttered and information is not easy to find. There are unique pages for each state, which can be a good thing, but the search tool won’t exclude other states from the results even if you include “California,” in the query.
Compounding the issue is that there is no support chat available in the web browser or the app. Again, this could change by the time California launches sports betting, but it doesn’t look like that feature is coming any time soon. If you need assistance, you’ll need to reach out by phone (1-855-755-0155), email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Twitter (@SuperBookSports).
College sports betting at SuperBook California
SuperBook usually carries college sports betting on its platform, and when California tried to pass Proposition 26, the legal text included language allowing wagering on collegiate athletics with exceptions for teams from CA. However, voters struck down Prop. 26 with roughly two-thirds of voter opposition, so sports betting remains illegal.
Once the state passes new sports betting laws, we will have more information on whether betting on college sports will be fully allowed, permitted for non-CA teams, or fully prohibited.
