Treasure Island Mobile Sports
Online Sports Book Review
The Treasure Island sports betting app is a mobile app for iOS and Android users in Nevada. The app is associated exclusively with the Treasure Island sportsbook, and it is one of the only independent sportsbooks in Las Vegas. This means that all of the odds listed at both their brick-and-mortar location and their app are available only to Treasure Island customers. Treasure Island does not currently have a desktop or mobile browser version.

All Nevada online casino winnings must be reported to the IRS when you complete your annual federal tax return. This is done on Form 1044. You will tally up your total winnings and report them under the “other income” section. There is no state income tax in Nevada, so you will not have to report these winnings on your state tax return.
The app can be downloaded anywhere, but the sign up process has to take place in person at the brick-and-mortar location. New users are required to bring their legal ID and their social security number. This coupled with about 10-15 minutes worth of paperwork will complete the sign up for new users.
All deposits must be made with cash at the Treasure Island sportsbook brick-and-mortar location. There is a $100 minimum on all deposits.
There is no deposit bonus for Treasure Island.
All winnings must be withdrawn at the Treasure Island sportsbook by the person who created the account.
One of the most common reviews of the Treasure Island app is that it is “easy on the eyes.” The app uses large fonts and a color combination of red text on a white background that makes it easy for users to sort through the bets that they want to make. The app also uses the same software as most of the other online wagering apps in Nevada, so for users that are looking to switch to Treasure Island, it should be an easy transition. The Treasure Island app has lines, odds, and point spreads that are unique to Treasure Island. This can be a major bonus for users that want unique lines and get accustomed to the Treasure Island handicappers.
There are a lot of cons for this app, starting with the funding and withdrawal options. Unlike other apps that often use prepaid debit cards, Treasure Island customers have to make all transactions at the brick-and-mortar location. This means that in order for users to add more money into their account or to withdraw any funds, they have to go to the physical location. This can be a major hassle and takes away from the convenience of betting at home. Possibly the biggest thing affecting the Treasure Island app is that it cannot be used on WiFi. This is incredibly inconvenient and forces users to eat up cellular data to use the app. While most sports betting apps tend to have more options than their brick-and-mortar locations, the Treasure Island app is the opposite. It has very limited betting options and is designed mostly for tourists that are just looking to place a few bets while they are in Las Vegas. The app also has a minimum wager of $5 which is high compared to most other Nevada apps that have a minimum wager of $2.
How To Place A Bet
In order to place a bet, the bettor must determine what they want to gamble on. If the bettor decides to place a bet on the Minnesota Twins moneyline against the New York Mets, they simply have to click the moneyline option for that game. Once clicked, the bet will appear on the betslip on the bottom of the page. The betslip can hold multiple bets, so a player can choose up to 10 different betting options and place money on them individually or in a parlay, round robin, or teaser bet. Once the bets are placed, the betslip is cleared and the player can place more wagers if they choose to.
How To Deposit and Withdraw
The first step for new users will be to create an account. The app can be downloaded anywhere, but the sign up process has to take in person place at the brick-and-mortar location. New users are required to bring their legal ID and their social security number. This coupled with about 10-15 minutes worth of paperwork will complete the sign up for new users.
To fund the account, the user must bring cash to the Treasure Island sportsbook. When opening an account, the minimum deposit is $100. All subsequent deposits must also be done with cash at the brick-and-mortar location. Withdrawals are handled in the same way with cash being given by the casino. There are not currently any deposit bonuses or loyalty rewards associated with the Treasure Island app.
Unless a user is a loyal customer of the Treasure Island sportsbook and is there often enough to fund and withdraw from their account, this app is not worth using. There are far too many negatives associated with this app including limited deposit and withdrawal methods, high minimum wagers, and the inability to use the app on WiFi. The ease of use and the unique odds are not enough to overcome these cons on the app.
