This sportsbook is offline
Bet33 has been awarded a C rating by SBR in recent years. The site is currently offline. The reasoning is the association with the RDG Corporation and its history of its brand not making payments to customers with positive account balances. Bet33 is an imitation sportsbook that targeted customers who had already been scammed by RDG brands. We suggest avoiding Bet33 and consider trusted sites on SBR’s list of best sportsbooks. This review examines the sports betting experience with Bet33.
RDG have made efforts to settle account balances at Bet33 and there is no record of multiple complaints. However, some customers with defunct brands are not aware their funds have been lost. Many players have not claimed lost cash and Bet33 enticed players to make deposits with false claims.
The sign up bonus came in the form of a 200% match deposit bonus up to $500, based on a minimum deposit of $100. However, this offer was subject to wagering requirements of 10 times the bonus, which is excessive and difficult to achieve.
Existing Bet33 account holders who may have lost cash with other RDG brands were encouraged to introduce new players. The referral program credited customers with $500 when they introduced a player who made a deposit and placed bets. There was also cashback on losses. However, the overall package of bonuses was difficult to achieve, and sportsbook bonuses with other betting sites definitely offer better value.
Many customers with old RDG Corp sites were not aware of the corporation’s efforts to settle account balances. Bet33 allowed customers to deposit and withdraw funds using popular payments methods, including credit cards. However, other top gambling sites like Bovada ensure faster payouts and are stronger in this area. There was a high risk of Bet33 defaulting on payments, so we recommend that you stick to the safe, trustworthy betting sites found on our best sportsbooks list instead.
Sports Betting Experience
This offshore operator focused on sports that are most popular with bettors located in the United States. In particular, Bet33 offered lines and props for games in the NFL, MLB, NHL and NBA. The site also featured betting on global sports such as soccer, boxing, tennis and motor racing. The sports betting experience was acceptable, but competitors like Intertops offer more diverse sports and markets.
This Bet33 review revealed a history of withholding information from existing players. The methods of contact were an online form and free telephone number. Customers did not have access to a Live Chat facility, and so the contact methods were limited. Bet33 and other RDG brands do not have a history of providing a good service.
This operator has a C rating according to the Sportsbook Review betting sites page. The group of RDG sportsbooks has a reputation of not paying their customers, so this history of scams was likely to be replicated with Bet33 players. We highly recommend that you look elsewhere for a better sportsbook.
