YouWager is primarily an online sportsbook and one which caters to a growing American gambling audience. Despite its sports betting background, YouWager.eu also offers casino games and poker games to its customers, although, admittedly, these have been dwindling over the last year or so, primarily due to the gambling website being blacklisted by most quarters. One of the main reasons this site has been blacklisted is due to its Amigotechs software, which is known to have games which cheat players.
YouWager is licensed out of Costa Rica, where the requirements for obtaining a gambling license are not nearly as strict as other licensing jurisdictions. There are no player protection plans in place, and the license does not offer any referral body for complaints. That is yet another chink in the armor of this potentially satisfactory casino. Players from the USA are welcomed at YouWager.
There is a welcome bonus available at the website, although it is only available for players who wish to place sports bets. There is a 50% match on deposits ranging from $100 up to $299, with low 4.5x rollover requirements. 100% bonuses are available on deposits ranging from $300 up to $500, with 15x wagering requirements, whilst deposits of $501 up to $2,000 are only offered 30% free play bonuses, with 4.5x wagering requirements, which is strange to say the least.
Further bonuses and promotions include 15% reload bonuses on deposits under $500, and 20% reload bonuses on every deposit of $500 and over. Both bonuses come with 4.5x wagering requirements, and all bonuses at this website must be wagered within 30 days or no withdrawals will be permitted via winnings from bonuses. This is extremely strict, and few online gamblers are going to find these fair or attractive.
YouWager Deposit and Withdrawal Options
According to their lobby, YouWager accepts deposits made using bitcoins, VISA, MasterCard, Money Transfer, Money Gram, and Bank Wire. Because they aim their services at American players (their slogan is, “Where America Bets” after all) these deposit options are open to players based in the USA, at least to deposit with.
Most of those options can be used to withdraw your winnings, too, although credit card withdrawals are not permitted. Generally speaking, you are going to have to wait up to 2 weeks before your withdrawals are processed, and there is a maximum limit of $4,000 which can be withdrawn during any week. When withdrawing with wire transfers or checks, expect high minimum withdrawal limits, lengthy delays and potentially cost fees, as reported by many players at this site. Withdrawals only occur 6 days a week, not 7, which is equally as baffled as the rest of the website.
Ordinarily, even so-so casinos can redeem themselves by having quality software available. This isn’t really the case with YouWager.eu. Yes, this website can offer you casino games as well as poker games and sports betting, but they all stem from the same software provider – Amigotechs. This company is widely known for featuring software which is rigged to ensure players seldom win very much, and is widely condemned. We wouldn’t recommend playing anything from this software developer, and since that is the only software provider over at this site, we, unfortunately, must recommend that you avoid the site.
Sports bets are far more stable to bet on if you are going to be playing at this website. Aside from their racebook (horse racing bets) YouWager offers bets on soccer, American football, hockey, basketball, baseball, tennis and many more prime American sports.
Customer support is available via live chat, e-mail, and telephone line. The telephone line isn’t necessarily toll-free, and even live chat can see you waiting a considerable amount of time before it is your turn. E-mail support can take 5 hours or more, and there have been cases where no reply has been received. This isn’t up to scratch. If YouWager considers themselves one of the leading sportsbooks in America, they are going to have to do better than this.
Video Review of YouWager.eu
There is a silver lining this mess. YouWager.eu’s games may be rigged, but the website offers a stable and secure sportsbook – after all, you can’t cheat sports bets. However, the withdrawal times are still going to be an issue for many players. If you are going to play at YouWager (perhaps because you’ve heard good things – they do claim to be endorsed by CNBC and The Washington Post) then we recommend only using their sportsbook. Using the casino or poker sites to play games (based on the software provider which kits them out) is nothing short of asking for trouble.
