Licensed and regulated by the government of Curacao, BetUS is one of the oldest and most respected Sportsbooks in the industry. The company started out all the way back in 1994 and focuses on the US and Canadian markets. They do accept customers from all around the world, but if you’re not from the US or Canada, you have to wager with cryptocurrencies. In that case, you can deposit via credit card and they’ll make the exchange for you in Ethereum for a fee around 5-6%.
Website, welcome bonus and promotions
BetUS will greet you with a pretty clean and well spaced website in a white and blue colorway. It mostly keeps the same characteristics on mobile.
I wouldn’t say I am particularly impressed by the website design or functionality, but there’s nothing to complain about either. I think the interface is pretty intuitive, and the fact that it’s so well spaced makes it more user-friendly compared to other betting websites, which are often cluttered and use narrow fonts.
BetUS has some of the best and largest bonus offers in the industry. New US and Canadian players are welcomed with a 125% first deposit bonus for Sports up to 2500$, with a minimum deposit of 100$ (bonus code “JOIN125”, see T&C’s).
For players outside the US and Canada, the Sports bonus is 150% up to 1875$, equivalent in crypto (minimum deposit 100$, bonus code “JOIN200”, see T&C’s).
BetUS also has plenty of other reload bonuses, casino bonuses, and special bonuses and promotions for crypto deposits, as well as a loyalty program, referral program, and fantasy-style contests & tournaments. You can find all these offers under the “Promotions” tab on their website. One could hardly ask for more in terms of the number of bonuses and the sheer amounts of money offered. However, rollover requirements are not the best, and that’s a negative.
Odds, Betting coverage, Live betting
Odds are above average at BetUS, and one thing I noticed was a consistency in the prices. What I mean by that is that the payout percentage seems to stay mostly constant for both high profile events / competitions, and for lower profile ones. Margins for handicaps are 1.91 – 1.91.
The focus at BetUS is, of course, on American sports. NFL, NBA and MLB are kings here, with a healthy dose of NHL, Boxing, UFC, Nascar, Golf, Horse Racing or Soccer. Overall there are around 25 sports for you to bet on. The amount of prop bets and outright bets available is quite exciting (love all the outright bet options), as long as we’re talking about the NFL, NBA, MLB or NHL. For soccer and other sports there aren’t as many prop bets or handicaps.
If we’re talking about live betting, the only issue is the absence of live streaming. If we ignore that, the service is very solid and extensive. A lot of events and betting options are always featured on the platform for you to wager on.
NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL are covered comprehensively at BetUS, both in-play and pre-play, and it’s hard to imagine what more one could ask for.
The variety of casino games is impressive, but that should not interest Betdistrict visitors very much. We are here to review the betting side of the company.
Customer support, Banking and limits
E-mail, phone and live chat are available for contact. From my interactiosn with them, response time and assistance were both great. You will be treated well.
You can deposit via Credit Card, Cash Deposit, or cryptocurrencies (just crypto if you are outside Canada & USA). Withdrawals can be made via credit card and crypto. The options are quite limited for such a renowned brand like BetUS.
Limits are said to be rather high. You should not expect problems in this department.
BetUS Sportsbook review summary
It’s not a risky statement to say that BetUS is one of the best options out there for US and Canadian bettors. They provide pretty much everything you could ask for, and their odds are competitive. In the end, their 25+ year history speaks for itself. You can’t have that kind of longevity if you are not good at what you do.
One thing we would say is to make sure you read the terms and conditions for the bonuses, as rollover requirements can be a bit complicated and you want to know beforehand what you have to do (see T&C links in our “bonus and promotions” section).
All in all, 4 stars out of 5. Recommended for both beginners and savvy veterans.
