Introduction to Barstool Sportsbook
The Barstool Sportsbook was launched in 2020 by Barstool Sports, a media company that has a long history in providing daily news content.
The venture in the sports betting world was successful after generating $11 million worth of wagers in its opening week.
Run by parent company, Penn National Gaming, Barstool Sportsbook is now available in Pennsylvania and Michigan, and it’s licensed and regulated by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
Barstool Sportsbook Website Design
The website design at Barstool Sportsbook is different to most US-based bookmakers, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
The home page features the latest betting markets in the middle of the page, so bettors don’t have to search around for the popular markets.
However, there is no list of sports on the left-hand side, which doesn’t keep in line with most bookmakers not only in the US, but around the world. Instead, Barstool Sportsbook has the sports list across the top of the page, which isn’t ideal for navigation.
The color scheme keeps in line with the Barstool Sports brand and we like that aspect. The red and blue theme is synonymous with the brand, so keeping it for the sportsbook is a nice touch.
Some work is needed on navigation throughout the site, especially when clicking into sport markets. Scrolling down the page isn’t ideal as only two or three markets appear on the page due to space constrictions.
It’s a downside for this impressive bookmaker, but it wouldn’t take much to improve.
Overall, the website design needs work, but it hasn’t been live for long, so we’re prepared to give them time.

Horse racing is currently unavailable for online bettors at Barstool Sports. This is due to state-by-state legislation, but we expect horse racing to be a part of the market in the future.

Our Thoughts on Barstool Sportsbook
Barstool Sportsbook gives bettors in Pennsylvania and Michigan plenty of sports betting options and excellent value odds.
The promotional department works hard to provide new and exciting ways for bettors to cash in, which is a positive.
Site navigation could do with some work, but it’s a minor complaint about an online bookmaker that is making its mark in the online betting world.
After graduating from the University of Auckland (BA – English), Daryl was thrown into the world of sports and horse racing journalism.
Having worked as a racing journalist for two years, he decided to move into the online world of horse racing and sports writing. Coupled with his love of US sport, Daryl's picks have been featured on various websites around the world and viewed by millions of readers. After years of honing his craft, Daryl became a professional punter in 2009 – with a focus on horse racing, NBA, NFL, and college sports. When he's not working, Daryl tries to avoid making bogeys on the golf course.
