Bonuses and Promotions
BetUS is aggressively trying to rebuild its stature and reputation among United States sports bettors.  Years ago, there were customers who were paid slowly (or not at all).  I was hesitant to include BetUS on this list, but Mike Foreman has assured me that BetUS’s payment issues are a thing of the past.  He asked me to allow them to “prove it” by putting them at my site for a probationary period.  And he even told me he would give my customers an exceptionally high sign-up bonus.  To that end, BetUS currently offers BigAl.com readers an exclusive 125% sign-up bonus, in the form of a free play (with a 10x rollover).   To get this 125% bonus — with a maximum limit of $2500 — use the code “BigAl” when you sign-up.  After you’ve become an active player, BetUS will continue to reward you with re-load bonuses, and loyalty points.  For example, BetUS has a standard 50% re-deposit bonus, but will boost it to 75% if you deposit with cryptocurrency.

Deposits and Withdrawals
BetUS accepts a variety of deposit methods, including credit card ($50 min; $2,499 max), MoneyGram ($100 min; $500 max), Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and Ethereum.  BetUS does not charge any fees on cryptocurrency deposits, and accepts crypto deposits that range from $10 to $50,000.  When you want to withdraw your money, you can choose among Bitcoin, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, cashier’s check, bank wire, and MoneyGram.  Cryptocurrency withdrawals are limited to one daily transaction ($5,000 max), while bank wire and cashier’s check methods are limited to one transaction every 72 hours ($3,000 max).  BetUS’s withdrawal process is easy and straightforward.

Odds
BetUS is one of the best sportsbooks for a gambler to have an account at for the purpose of shopping lines.  And, as faithful readers of BigAl.com understand, having multiple sportsbook accounts, and getting the best number is what separates sharps from squares.  But it’s not just enough to have several sportsbooks in your arsenal.  You also need to have the right sportsbooks.  That is, if you have four books, but they all tend to have the same numbers, it won’t confer a great benefit to you.  Instead, you need to join sportsbooks that publish unique odds, and don’t just copy the numbers of the industry leaders.  BetUS does have unique odds, and will often be a full-point different than other books on a football game.  And, while some books with unique odds will be better for underdog players, or better for chalk players, the odds at BetUS don’t lean one way or the other.

User Interface and Mobile Betting
I am a big fan of BetUS’s website and user interface.  It is very well-laid out, with its main menu bar running horizontally across the top.  Once you’re at its sportsbook, it locates the various leagues vertically on its left sidebar.  Everything is intuitive, which is much appreciated.  My lone complaint is that it unnecessarily has promotional banners for its contests and promotions running down its right sidebar.  Those only serve to distract; I prefer an uncluttered sportsbook page.  Still, BetUS wins me over by including one of my favorite time-saving features which (astonishingly) is not at many books.  And that’s a simple search bar for you to enter a team’s name (e.g., Stanford) to quickly bring up the desired game.  (Bovada and MyBookie also have this feature.)  BetUS’s site is mobile-optimized and compatible with iOS and Android.

Betting Limits
BetUS accepts wagers as large as $5,000 on the major sports, and $1,000 for live betting, though management will increase those at its discretion, upon request of the customer.

Live Sports Betting
BetUS provides live betting options on all major sports, and even major eSports leagues.  It’s easy to access the live events menu — just click on Live Betting on the top menu bar, or the Live link on the sportsbook’s left sidebar.  Either of those two options takes you to the live bets landing page, where you are shown the current in-play wagers, organized by league.

Additional and/or Unique Offerings
BetUS offers downloadable rotation schedules, and also publishes trends and other data for each match-up.  DIY handicappers will especially find those useful.  Additionally, BetUS has a full range of futures wagers and prop bets.  You can even bet on non-sports events like the Emmy Awards or Presidential elections.  One of my favorite offerings is BetUS’s “Gambler’s Insurance.”  With this program, you can get a bonus in the amount of 10% of your net losses on deposits made over a six-month period, so long as you place at least two wagers per week.

BetUS’s racebook accepts bets from all the major tracks, but does not offer bonus payouts on winnings at major tracks, or any rebates on losing tickets.  Its wagering limit is $10,000 for horse racing, and it also has max payouts per race.  BetUS also has an online casino with table games, video poker, slots and more. 

Customer Service
Most sportsbooks have terrific customer service, but BetUS puts an emphasis on it, and takes it to another level.  Case in point:  at BetUS, each customer is assigned his own personal account manager. Live chat is available 24/7, and you can also reach a BetUS team member via email at custhelp@betus.com.pa or telephone (1-800-792-3887) when you have a question.
