EZmoney: FREE deposit and withdrawal using ACH linked to your checking account. This direct transaction eliminates Telechek, and offers a generous weekly transaction limit, with increases approved in-house for players with a strong payment history.
PayPal: make deposits and withdrawals using PayPal via your checking account. You may only link PayPal to a single ADW account; if you have used this method previously on TwinSpires you will not be able to use PayPal on BetAmerica.
Credit card deposits have a flat $5 processing fee, regardless of the deposit amount. Make large deposits and save money on your credit card fees!
PayNearMe is still available, but they issued a new merchant number, which means if you have an existing barcode saved from the old platform you will need to generate a new barcode.
On-site cash deposits at Churchill Downs racetracks as well as our Lexington office.
VIP members will no longer have Credit Card processing fees refunded monthly. With our generous ACH limits and additional funding options, the new BetAmerica site eliminates the need to make back-up credit card deposits.
The deposit widget remembers your previous payment method and, and defaults to that each time. To display all available methods, select the back arrow.
What are the new BAM VIP levels?
We base VIP status on your handle, which we evaluate each January to establish status for the calendar year. Once you become a VIP, you maintain that status until January of the following year.
After each of the first three quarters (April 1, July 1, and October 1), we evaluate handle to find players who qualify for an upgrade.
There are four VIP levels – Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum – each has specific wagering requirements to maintain status.
How was my VIP status determined?
We looked at current BetAmerica VIP level, and then at year-to-date handle, and placed players in the highest tier possible in the new program
players whose wagering YTD fell short of the minimum threshold to be a VIP under the new program, have been granted temporary Bronze VIP status
All players will remain the VIP program through the end of 2020 – when we will re-evaluate total handle. At that time, if a player has not met VIP requirements, he/she will be removed from the program.
What about higher base points that I earned on the old site?
The monthly multiplier replaces the higher base point value.
Depending on VIP level, players may receive additional on-track benefits – which may include programs, parking, upgraded seating, access to the gold room.
The new BetAmerica site has a full handicapping store, loaded with products to meet every handicapper’s need. There are important changes:
ONLY Brisnet brand pps, and ”Insider picks and power plays” are free with bet. ALL other past performances must be purchased and are NOT refunded.
Brisnet uses the “promise” system—just check the box guaranteeing that you plan to wager on the card that you download and you won’t have to pay for it up front. You can ensure it remains free by placing at least one bet (even a $0.10 super) on the card that you downloaded.
VIPs receive 20% off additional products from Brisnet – tip sheets etc. when downloaded from the handicapping store on BetAmerica. Products downloaded on Brisnet.com do not qualify for this benefit.
Harness products are not refundable for non-VIP players.
If you are a BetAmerica VIP - Trackmaster Condensed Harness PPs are free. Only the condensed pps qualify for this offer.
