Sportsbook Review of YouWager
2006/12/30 - Review by Ira Nanson

YouWager is an online sportsbook, casino and poker room operated by First Fidelity under the embrella of Business Management International SA which was established in 1994.

The Costa Rican company is related to BetAnySports, BetPrimeTime, ChineseBookie, BetGrandSlam, LessJuice, BetPop, Vietbet and Wager7.

The sportsbook is powered by ASI software which is the optimum choice of many offshore books such as 5Dimes, Cascade, BetJamaica, BetGrand, Heritage Sports, Nine, Pinnacle, Skybook, The Greek, and WagerWeb.

The sign up process was easy enough but I failed to receive the activation email that was promised, so it was necessary to contact a customer support agent and repeat the process once again.

The sportsbook provides betting lines on football, baseball, basketball, hockey, horses, boxing, motor sports, soccer, golf, tennis and entertainment bets.

Sports wager types include point spreads, money lines, parlays, totals, buy points, teasers, if bets, reverses, action reverses and rolling if bets.

Minimum stake online is $5 and $50 for telephone wagers.

Deposit options include:

  • Instant check Min $25 / Max $500 for new customers, but for regular depositors the maximum is $1000. Fees are reimbursed for deposit of $100 and more.
  • ATM Online Min $25 / Max $5000. Fees are reimbursed for deposit of $100 and more.
  • Visa and Mastercard Min $25 / Max $500. Fees are reimbursed for every deposit.
  • Money Transfer No Min / Max $2,500, multiple transactions are possible. Fees are reimbursed for deposits of $300 and more.
  • NETeller Min $25 / Max $10,000 per transaction
  • Cashiers Check. No Min / No Max.
  • Bank Wire Min $5000 / No Max

Withdrawal options include :

  • Instant Check Min $25 / Max $10,000.
  • Overnight Check No Min / Max $4995 per day
  • NETeller No Min / Max $10,000 per transaction, per day
  • ATM Online No min / Max $10,000 per transaction, per day
  • Bank wire Min $5000 / No max

Book to Book transfers are permitted but customer support agents will not provide a list of books that they deal with. In fact its like pulling teeth getting this information from them but the agent Sal did confirm that they have the arrangement with Pinnacle, Nine and 5dimes. They do not transfer with The Greek or Wagerweb.

Customer Support is available 24/7/365 via live chat, email and a toll free telephone service. Although the clerks are helpful with most things they do not like answering a lot of questions and you will find that they are particularly quick to end a chat session.

There are mixed opinions, some customers rate YouWager and have never had any problems. However there are too many complaints from big winners (in the region of $10k) stating they have been screwed by this book and failed to get their funds out when they tried to make a withdrawal. Some customers have endured swearing and cursing from the hot tempered General Manager Freddie Harris who was described as a total lunatic.

Some customers like to wager baseball here but dislike the late and not so great late lines.

The marketing is known to be too aggressive with agents cold calling up to 3 times per week urging customers to upgrade (aka re-up / reload). If this is not for you make sure you contact them and tell them to take you off all mailing and marketing lists.

The book offers generous bonus incentives but they are quick to pull the rug if you are winning and watch out for a possible 30 day hold and other rollover clauses.

YouWager is an above average sportsbook but with all the complaints we highly recommend you invest you time and money in one of the better books listed on SGR.
