    BETUS poor experience

    So I finally posted up on BETUS, in spite of the warnings on here, and have had a miserable experience. I deposit $1K ($1,009.33, which includes $8 miner fee for a net of $1,001.33) via BTC and they take off 2% (credited me with $983.22). I asked why they applied a fee and they had no answer other than they said that it must have been the bitcoin exchange rate. I proved to them that it could not have been the exchange rate because almost $20 is a lot to be off when depositing only $1000. The BTC quote would have had to have been off by $800. Not possible. Didn't happen. No major fluctuation in price at all during the hour in question. I deposit via BTC all the time and have never experienced this before.

    So, I bump the opening balance up to over $2200. Am still kind of angry that they have no explanation for deducting 2% on the deposit, so I want out from this site. To me, it more of the principle than the $20. I took no bonus so no rollover would be necesssary. I made several wagers. I request the withdrawal via BTC and it has been "waiting manager authorization" for what is now going on over 26 hours. Am not used to waiting this long for a simple BTC withdrawal.

    Why would anyone play here?

    1) you need to bet all your balance once. If so then.
    2) you need to get verified. Ok if so already.
    3) they will tell you there is a week hold.


    Otherwise not sure

    Good luck

    to answer why would anyone bet there- they have 100% sign up bonus only 10 x rollover for one. from what i've heard they pay and fairly quickly as well. I've had my eye on them to load up 5k for the full first deposit bonus. haven't pulled trigger yet.

    i'm guessing you will get paid, and it is messed up what they did on the deposit, but that stuff is par for the course in this game. it's probably what the processor gave them and the processor takes a secret cut by altering the exchange rate slightly. it's common practice with crypto even in non-gambling circles. they should have just given you the $20 though - you had a point.

    I lost 2% depositing to Bookmaker the first time. That was with no confirmations. Bitcoin sucks.

    Yep

    You can get 60% and reduced juice. Money line is also reduced.

    Only down fall is you have to use -110 lines or ML regular lines on a parlay or to buy points.

    I just contacted BAS support and they said 60% 6x rollover up to 10k. If they are legimately safe then might make sense to go all in on that. do they have reports of ten figure + payouts with no problem?

    Thanks. I wagered over $1400, so I would have cleared #1.
    I sent the required verification that was required to withdraw several days ago without issue.
    A week hold? On a BTC deposit? If so, that's fine. They didn't communicate that to me, though.
    Thank you for your help.

    No problem. Yea sir if no bonus, they will hold the funds up to 7 days before payout. Yes they should just tell you that.

    You could get it sooner. Try not to piss them off or they will delay more.

    I stopped using them myself.

    Read their T&C's, seems to be in line with it, 24-48 hours and verification. You did contact them correct?

    They actually already did contact me to try and make this right. They had a cryptocurrency manager named Duke contact me. He couldn't explain why I was shorted on my BTC deposit. He seemed legitimately interested in helping me. He asked me to try and deposit again using a different wallet. He sent me $20 (free of charge) in BTC and asked me to re-send to test the process. I agreed. I received the $20 in BTC safely and then tried to re-deposit. I was only credited with $5.62 in my account. Shorted again. This was 2 days ago. Duke did respond to me and promised that he would elevate this issue for me. I haven't heard back as of yet.

    If you'd still like for me to send my account number via DM, I'd be glad to. Thanks, SBR.

    If you sent $20 you'd probably have to really send $35 with the fee nowadays. BetUS gives you a BTC amount to use such as .010494 so if you dont use that amount to send and instead type in $500. You won't get the full $500. Youll get $485 or w/e.

    That's the opposite of correct.

    The lower the exchange rate at cashout, the more bitcoin he will collect.

    More bitcoin is better no matter which way the price moves after he receives it.

    You always prefer to be paid on a price dip.

    I have a similar experience. I decided to try Betus after reading many positive reviews here. Like the OP I experienced a 2% shortage on a recent deposit. I sent $2500 and I saw it was slightly higher than this after confirmation. I got credited with only $2453.21. Worse it took them over 2 hours to post my deposit after confirmation. I like the great bonuses, but don't want to get skimmed on my deposits and withdrawals. Is this a common occurrence with Betus?

    I've done a lot of depositing and withdrawing from betus. I haven't seen any skimming going on. Crypto fluctuates a lot. Sometimes I get $5 more than what I sent, sometimes $10 less. Whatever it is it's always a negligible amount. Sam thing happens when I deposit at BOL etc...

    Based on very positive feedback here, I decided to give BETUS a try and I have to say I am extremely impressed.

    The first thing to note is that they will process multiple crypto currencies as deposits.

    Rule No. 1 in the Roger T. Bannon Guide to Sports Betting is that is that if you can deposit online with non-bitcoin cyptos, you are not going to get stiffed or get the runaround. Any book making this kind of investment is well funded.

    I sent ethereum. I was not impressed by ethereum but was impressed by BETUS. The credit was not immediate but was provided quickly when I inquired on chat after a few confirmations.

    I was concerned about the shortchanging the amount of the deposit as reported here, but found that BETUS guarantees price if you get your deposit within the 10-minute window they guarantee. I lost 1% somehow but they gave me the amount reported deposited into their wallet by Blockchain.com so that was not on BETUS.

    Rule No. 2 in the Roger T. Bannon Guide to Sports Betting is that if a book will guarantee price on a deposit, you are not going to get stiffed. I cannot even get this with Bovada as of last deposit.

    The BETUS rep I talked with told me that they payout bitcoin with 2 hours.

    They also do not have the kind of limitations on bet size based on deposit of many bonus books.

    At this time, BETUS blows BetPhoenix and GTBets out of the water and is operating at an A level.

    I would have no issue with depositing $5,000 there if I was of a mind to with no sweat.

    BETUS has been upgraded from C- to B+ in the Roger T. Bannon ratings guide.
