BetUS was established in 1994. Their main office is located in Costa Rica, so logically they operate under the laws of this country. Like most sportsbooks from the Central American betting market, BetUS is oriented towards US players, as the company’s name itself suggests.
At first, BetUS was a brick and mortar sportsbook and soon created its website.
Sports Betting Lines
BetUS doesn’t offer that many sports to bet on. The line is mainly focused on US bettors. Here they can find among leading positions: basketball, baseball and hockey. Golf and NASCAR racing are also available, although not at this scale. There are no exotic disciplines, but special offers such as politics, TV shows and awards are available. One of the most controversial special bets was launched by BetUS. They come up with a bet related to the fate of the communist leader Fidel Castro. BetUS was giving the opportunity to choose the month and day of the week that Fidel Castro could die. The odds are above average. The live section leaves much to be desired. At times there are absolutely no events available in real time. The betting option and action line include moneyline, handicaps, and totals.
BetUS offers several bonuses and promos. Upon first deposit bettors receive 55% of the deposit amount, and when the account is reloaded, a 50% bonus is provided. In addition, a referral program is supported: for each invited player, bettors can get 25% of the amount of his replenishment. And about twice a year, BetUS provides a cashback of 10% of the lost funds.
Deposit & Payout
BetUS supports all major deposit and withdrawal methods like Visa, Mastercard, Skrill, Diner, Paysafecard, Neteller, Moneybookers, American Express. On the website there's a rather informative section with answers to the most common questions. If you could not solve the problem through the FAQ, you can contact BetUS customer service directly. All the main channels are available: phone, email, live chat. Support is available 24/7, but only in English.
Mobile Betting & Site Usability
Navigation is not bad. Visually it looks pleasant. BetUS’s interface can be called classic: on the left is a complete list of sports, in the center is the section “Last Minute Bets” and on the right is a bet slip and a live section. At the top of the page is an event searching panel and a button for changing the odds format.
BetUS is one of the many gambling companies from Costa Rica that mainly focus on players from the United States. BetUS is at many levels similar to other bookies. Their line is average, their live section takes only bets on show. BetUS is a serious bookie but only by local standards. But it definitely does not stand comparisons with industry leaders. It still can be a good choice for bettors specializing in baseball and basketball, but that’s about it.
