Review of BetUS Casino

Costa Rican based BetUS offers a somewhat unique proposition for online casino players, for it offers not one but two entirely different sets of casino software. Primarily operating as a sportsbook for U.S. customers since 1994, BetUS launched its own full featured downloadable casino with software from Rival Gaming, and in May 2011 stopped accepting customers from the USA.

Warning - cost cutting, financial trouble likely

In May of 2011, BetUS reneged on its contractual and financial obligations to affiliate marketers and discontinued its affiliate program. It also ceased to accept new players from the United States which has traditionally been its major source of customers. We feel these moves indicate the business is exercising extreme cost cutting measures is a seemingly desperate attempt to stay viable. We recommend players steer clear as we would not like to see anyone risk their bankroll at a casino that could soon be out of business.

Casino software choice

If flash-powered instant play casinos are your thing then you can play at BetUS using games developed by DGS (Digital Gaming Solutions). The casino at BetUS has more or less operated like this for several years, mainly as an afterthought to the sportsbook section of the site. However in 2009 they released a full download client with an entirely different set of Rival-powered casino games.

Personally I prefer the downloadable Rival games - they are far more polished and professionally presented than the aging flash based DGS games. They also have the added attraction of being linked to the Rival Gaming progressive jackpot network, which includes jackpots such as One Million Reels BC, Major Moolah, and Money Magic. There is a decent collection of slots, including Rival's flagship i-Slots which have interactive storylines that unfold as you play. There are also a fine collection of table games including blackjack, roulette, craps, caribbean stud poker and various other variations of table poker, as well as keno, parlour games and video pokers to choose from.

Bonuses and Tournaments

BetUS Casino has a good range of promotions and bonuses. Here, the welcome bonus can be as much as $500 – a 100% deposit bonus on your initial deposit. In addition there are a bunch of other bonus offers for both table games and slots lovers. Sadly almost all the deposit bonuses have maximum cash-out limits imposed which is a big no-no in our book.

BetUS also runs a comp points program, refer a friend rewards and they also hold casino game tournaments which run several times a week.

Support and banking options

Customer support can be contacted 24 hours a day via telephone - which is a good thing because you'll need to call them to claim some of the bonuses on offer. They can also be reached via email and live chat. Banking options are a little slim which is to be expected for a site mainly focussing on U.S. players these days.

Overall, BetUS is a decent online casino option without offering anything we haven't seen countless times before. It is obvious that the sportsbook is their bread and butter, and you get the distinct feeling that the casino is just there as an afterthought. Experienced bonus players will be turned off by the win limits on the deposit bonuses. The BetUS casino is most suited to their existing sports betting customers or those of you who prefer sports betting with a little casual casino play on the side.

BetUs is the shadiest casino ever! Their software is corrupt and so are they. Don't trust them. Thye will not honor requests to find out who regulates them because they run casino software that is so weighted toward the house advantage no one can ever really win. The player might get lucky for a bit--but the house will always prevail and they take your money. Good luck getting paid. They are corrupt scum. Don't send them a dime.

I joined betus casino recently, just to check, how rogue operators work, and how it goes on their side. Also many other affiliates does not tell players that this is rogue casino, so i decide to check out, if there any good reason to call this casino rogue or not.
I registered without any problems, and was glad to see that there is not only casino, but also sports betting site, but to be honest number of events is really poor, and i can't find any reasons to play at this sportsbook, while i have other good choices to play.
I get no deposit bonus from this casino, it was 15$ and i get it simply by claiming in cashier. I test live chat, asking how much withdrawals took at this casino, and was told that if i will have withdrawal, i will get paid within 7 business days. Not sure if they lie or no, but sounds not so bad(okay, sounds terrible of course, but at least they does not tell that 'we will withdraw within 2 days, not worry, make deposit faster'. I was not able to test withdrawals, because lost with my no deposit.
I of course did not recommend this casino, better avoid. There are two decent rival brands - cash'o'lot and tropica, and here on CL we have rep for this casinos. As for betus, i suggest stay away.

Bet us casino i think very want money from united states gamblers because it has US in the name so i am not surprised that this casino and sportsbook accepts players from states. I am also realize few secs ago that i can not remember any good casino that has US or USA in the name probably except one casino in club world group all other most likely is just rogues who want to take money from poor USA guys who just did not have many choices to gamble. I played at betus casino one time with no deposit bonus because like many other rival software casinos this one give no deposit bonus after i download softwares register and visit cashier. Bonus was received i tried to speak with live chat but no one was online and i did not get any reply i google about casino and decide that it is not very safe place for me and just lost no deposit bonus and was happy with that that is all and i am never make deposit in this casino. I write and read many reviews on this site and if casino listings admins say that this casino is rogue that it is just means that you should close this review and never play in this casino.

Was thinking you might be onto something there, but there is Las Vegas USA Casino, run by the folks at Mainstreet. These guys are a great option for US players, plus they've managed to use 2 US references in their name! Joking

Betus casino it is rival online casino, and like almost 99% of rival casinos here you also can get no deposit welcome bonus, and it is good chance to try games for free, with small chance to win some money for free(but this chance is very small).
+ Software. Software at betus casino is good, like usually it is much more better to install application on computer and there is much more games at download application that at instant play. Also i never experience any lags with this software, everything worked very good for me.
+ Customer support. It is surprise that in this rogue casino i have good experience with support, but even email CS reply took for me only few hours, and i am not saying about live chat reply, which was received instant.
+ Bonuses. At betus casino bonuses is good, i did not notice any good promotions, but bonuses is good, usually reload bonuses appear in cashier, and you can took any offer. Also casino not greedy to offer no deposit bonuses, but like always it is hard to get anything good from it, because in most cases bonuses have max WD limit of 50$.
And one minus, but it is very big minus.
- I was lucky to clear no deposit bonus. I made 20$ deposit, and request withdrawal. It tooks about 3 weeks to get paid, it was terrible.
Final mark.
While support and bonuses is good, withdrawal time is terrible.

There is no surprise that BetUS Casino has been blacklisted. The casino is terrible. It will lure you in with initial small winnings, then 10 minutes, forget about it. What is really troubling about BetUS, is that if you are consistently betting on unit, then suddenly put up four units, it will delay five seconds before returning loser. Wow, how obvious. For example, I like to play Bacarat. I'll move a five-dollar chip around from banker to player. Then, if I put up $15 or $20 especially when I had $5 on the banker and then go to the player with $15, there is a delay not found previously then losing cards. In the sportsbook, point spreads mysteriously change not in the player's favor once a wager is submitted. How this site is still in operation is beyond me. Stay away. Stay very far away.
