Betting options — normal

There are also plenty of ways to make bets on each of the above sports and leagues. CG Sports has a lot of different bets, but for most of the main games like in the NFL, you will have the main three lines and some additional prop bets available. 

The mobile betting app is fully equipped however, as they offer many different betting types including parlays, round robins and a live betting section.

  • Moneyline Bets

  • Over/Under Bets

  • Spread Bets

  • Live Bets

  • Future Bets

  • Parlay Bets

  • Prop Bets

Live — normal

There is a live betting section available on the CG Sports mobile betting app. This section will allow you to bet on games at any time, even as they are being played. Live betting on CG Sports also has features that are different from pre match betting that help you to follow each game.

While there is still no live streaming, you will be able to follow the game as the mobile app will upload statistics to the screen as the game develops. Different bets will also be made available depending on the events of the game. 

The live betting section is very quick, and gives players the opportunity to jump into live games and place wagers at any time. In general it does what it needs to, which is allow you to make inplay bets, and also gives a little extra with the statistics that appear on the screen. 

About the sportsbook

CG Technology is ultimately the gaming subsidiary of the major financial services firm Cantor Fitzgerald. The financial company is headquartered on the other side of the country in New York City and began in 1945. 

The gaming division of the company was originally called Cantor Gaming, before changing its name to CG Technology. The gaming division is located in Las Vegas and arrived in 2009. CG Technology owns or offers sportsbook services to seven locations in and around the city. It also has a mobile betting app allowing statewide online wagering. 

Cg Technology has a few strong points within the mobile betting app. The inclusion of live betting along with plenty of different sports to bet on gives the app a more diverse selection of wagering options. The mobile betting  app could use some work. 

It has a multitude of technical issues such as glitches and crashes that can make it hard to use. However, if you can bypass the app itself, the sports betting is quite good. It provides a good selection of sports with competitive features for Nevada bettors. 

Top reasons to use CG Sports betting app:

  • Good selection of sports and betting types

  • Competitive features like live betting and minimum deposits

Registration & Verification

Although the betting that you can do on CG Sports through the mobile app online, the registration process will need to be done in person. The process for creating an account is not a difficult one and does not really go out of the ordinary signup. The good news is that there are seven locations that you can visit to create an account. 

  • Hard Rock Casino

  • Silverton

  • Palms

  • M Resort

  • Palazzo

  • Cosmopolitan

  • Tropicana

By going to any of these locations in Nevada you will be able to create an account and make a first deposit. The registration process can be completed by anyone, you do not need to be a Nevada resident. All betting done on the mobile app must be done within the state. 

In order to sign up for an account you will need to fill out an application and provide a photo ID or a social security card. The entire process should not take more than ten minutes. Once you have completed everything, you can make a deposit, download the mobile app and begin betting from anywhere in Nevada. 

Deposits & Withdrawals

CG Technology is a very common Nevada sports betting app when it comes to payment transactions. In order to make either a deposit or a withdrawal you will need to visit one of the locations and use cash. 

However, this is where having seven locations in the state really comes in handy, as it gives players more options than other Nevada sportsbooks. You can deposit funds in cash during the location’s normal business hours. 

Minimum deposit amount on CG Sports: $50

The amount of $50 for a minimum deposit amount is also pretty intact with other Nevada sportsbooks. You will also need to withdraw at the exact location where you deposited. If you are out of state and are not able to come back to withdraw your funds, you can choose to have the money electronically wired to you. 

Review Conclusion

CG Sports does some things very well, however there are a lot of things that could still use some work. The selection of sports and bet types that the app features is in line with the physical sportsbooks in Nevada. Every type of bet that you would expect to see can be found on the mobile app as well.

The mobile app however, is one of the focal points for improvements that CG Sports would do well to make. Since the app itself affects everything on the inside, it should always be a top priority.

Unfortunately, CG Sports mobile betting app still has a lot of glitches that prevents players from a truly smooth and complete betting experience.

Overall, CG Sports can definitely be a competitive sportsbook within the states it will operate, however some base changes to the app need to be made. If they are able to put forth a better app for wagering then there are already a lot of positives that will be made more appealing. 

Questions and answers

How to use a CG Sports bonus?

The mobile betting app from CG Sports does not yet have a section for promotions. This includes welcome offers for signing up or depositing on the app. If you do stop in to one of the locations to create a betting account, you should ask if there are any promotions or bonuses that the sportsbook can offer you. 

We believe that a promotions section will eventually be offered on the mobile app however so it is always best to be prepared. How it works on sportsbooks is that you can go to the section and select the current promotion that you want to receive. If you are eligible, you will just have to meet the requirements for the offer to use it. 

Where are CG sportsbooks located?

CG Technology owns or operates eight sportsbooks in the state of Nevada. However, for players in the northern parts of the state, you will need to make the trip to Las Vegas, as all seven locations are in Sin City. 

Four of the sportsbooks operated are on the Las Vegas Strip. These include the dual sportsbooks in the Venetian/ Palazzo, and also in the Cosmopolitan and the Tropicana. Another three are in the Las Vegas locals market and include the Palms, Hard Rock Casino and Silverton. Finally, the sportsbook at the M Resort is located in the Las Vegas Valley. 


Who owns CG Sports?

Ultimately, CG Technology is a subsidiary of the Cantor Fitzgerald financial corporation. The financial services company is one of the largest and most well-known in the country, and is headquartered in New York City.
