They are bad.. I used them in the past.. but they are horrible! never again!
I am also having problems with betus They gave me a crappy $20 bonus on a $200 deposit played the deposit and won on low odds then played the freeplay and lost then refused withdrawal until I turnover $660 on a crappy $20 freeplay I am a newbie at this and I know their bonus rules are slightly different but christ thats a bit steep. Sent them an email awaiting their response if I hold my breath i`ll go blue !!!!!
If you accepted a 10% bonus with 3x roll then there Is no chance. Only advice I can offer is make sure you know what you're getting into next time.

yep I know i`m learning the hard way although I must add that their t & c are very unclear. Its the first us bookie I have done and I must say that its kinda putting me off doing any more. Suppose i`ll need to dutch my way out and never use them again !!!!
Well not necessarily, if you bust out there may well be some reloads in it for you? Just hedge the bets differently to factor any wagering requirements in. (It might be -EV if it is too steep but I think there would likely be value in it if you are prepared to look for close odds matches)

Of course, I politely declined and told him I was capable of depositing and no more was said about it
What I should've done is made the deposit, told him I'd done the deposit but my password if you need it for next time is WrongPassword and then see ho many failed attempts I got over the next few days
You're still playing at BetUS?! I've had a pending withdrawal there for the last 6 months, mid four figures, and I'm not the only one. They're about as rogue as you can get.

(Never taken a w/d here)
Not to disprove what you're saying, but there's some reports of payouts in the payout thread for BetUS - have they give you any kind of excuse?
Problem was with the download casino.

About another week later went on live chat to be told I hadn't finished the wagering and still had x amount left. After a bit of grumbling I did the wagering and went to withdraw. Yep withdrawal is fine they said.
A week later and the balance was still in there. Now on live chat i was told that the games I had played didn't count towards the wr. Well they did when i started and the change in t&c happened well after i put in my first withdrawal.
Grumble grumble grumble. Did the whole wagering again on a different game.
When i went back a few weeks later still to find my balance hadn't been withdrawn. This time I was told that the new game i had played didn't count - they had changed their t&c again. Now I'm stuck with a large balance that I have little hope of ever being allowed to withdraw.
I have heard of other people having similar problems and of 1 guy who had a $10k balance seized and his deposit refunded because he "abused the bonus" - ie doubled up and ground out on blackjack (this was over a year ago). I would strongly suggest not playing here. Especially as they're US facing which means you have the added risk of the fbi stopping their operation.
casinos are tricky sometimes, especially these days. the scary thing is If you get a large score on one, they can always claim bonus abuse if you are playing the double up method to start then grind it out at low limits. That is why i kind of stopped doing casino bonuses all together. I am pretty sure the download casino here is kinda seperate from the sportsbook. I dont know if it still is, but i know before you couldnt transfer the balances between casino and book, and the payment processors were different. The instant casino at betus is the same but the download I thought was run by the casino.
I know a lot of people here, including myself have had large payments paid very quickly and without problems. Of course there is a thread that talks about all their tricky wording on wager requirments and what counts towards what in the sportsbook. That is the problem a lot of people have here. They dont count everything 100% towards wagers, and some dont count at all.
I wish i could help more on the download casino end but like i said, I havent had experience with it here because it was seperate from the book side.
