BetUS Calendar

BetUS has been in business since 1994 and has owned many sportsbooks over the years. Their website is rated very high on numerous independent sportsbook review sites, but don’t let this fool you. BetUS pays a lot of these sites big money to list them as a top sportsbook and might even own some of these review sites. Back in 2005 BetUS began sending players magazines called Gambling Insider which rated the top online sportsbooks. All the sites that were listed were owned by or associated with the BetUS family of books. This was a scummy marketing approach.

We strongly encourage anyone thinking about joining BetUS to do their research first. One of our favorite independent review sites which is much larger and much more established then we are has been archiving BetUS news and complaints over the years. You can access this information on the SportsbookReview.com BetUs Page.

You’ll notice a trend when reading SBR’s BetUS page that most of the complaints were for 5 figures amounts, or had to do with sharp action (not all of them, but most of them). You’ll also see that some of these complaints have been resolved.

For the most part recreational bettors who are betting a few dollars to perhaps $100 per game for the most part love BetUS. Their company offers large sign up bonuses, lots of cool promotions and works hard to keep gambling fun. If you’re a lower limit player betting mostly for entertainment value there is a good chance you’ll also fall in love with their site. Their company is not often hassle people over withdrawals of ranging in the hundred’s of dollars, and the reason you’ll love BetUS is because they make betting fun.

If you’re keen on betting things other than sports Bet US has offers a casino, and also offers a great poker room which operates on the Cake Poker network.

Overall we chose to give BetUS a C- rating. Please keep in mind rating scales overall are subjective and the method for determine a site rating is up to the management of each review site. We define a C rating as “decent sportsbook with some potential risk to players funds. The +/- part means we feel the book is more or less decent or has less or more risk to players funds then other books rated in the same category. The different between a C and a C+ rating is far less than the different between a B- and a C+ in our system. The letter grade is a sites overall category. The +/- is used to compare them to other books within that category.

BetUS is currently offering a 50% sign up bonus – for some clients the risk of using a C rated book compared to the benefits gained from the sign up bonus is worth it, for others it is not. If you’re one of those gamblers who is willing to take a calculated risk then perhaps BetUS might be a good option for you.

Geographical Restrictions: None, clients from all locations welcomed.
