Bet Jamaica Review
BetJamaica sportsbook is based in beautiful Montego Bay, Jamaica and prides itself on being the “player’s paradise”. This sports betting paradise is quickly establishing a strong name for itself with its high betting limits, solid customer service and reliability. This is definitely a destination we recommend for new players looking to bet on sports.
Bet Jamaica Reputation: 4/5
Launched in 2003, the BetJamaica brand is a member of the Greek Sports Group family, which has been in the game since 1996. Although some sports betting elitists might say that the BetJamaica brand is too young to trust, the fact is that their association with The Greek sportsbook speaks volumes in its favor.
Bet Jamaica Bonuses / Value: 4/5
BetJamaica offers a variety of new player and reload deposit bonuses, notably a 20% sign-up bonus on first deposits of $500 or more, and 10% on any future deposits of over $500. Rollover requirements on these bonuses come in at 4x and maximum bonus amounts are capped at $500.
The clear downsides of the bonus program at Bet Jamaica are the high minimum deposit amounts in order to claim bonuses, and the steep rollover requirements associated. That said, these facts are consistent with sportsbooks that cater to semi-pro bettors, who prefer more money up-front. That said, where Bet Jamaica brings good value to the table is by letting you bet in the Paradise Racebook, Paradise Casino and Paradise Poker room with the same account you use to bet on sports.
Bet Jamaica $$$ / Security: 4/5
BetJamaica utilizes industry-standard 1024 bit key SSL encryption which ensures that all of their pertinent pages are RSA secured. Players can expect the same secure service as is standard with The Greek sportsbook.
In terms of available deposit methods, BetJamaica really steps up to the plate with a large variety of options to choose from for both US and Non-US sports bettors. Among the most popular methods offered are Visa, Mastercard, NETeller, E-Check, Bank Transfer, Gold-Pay, FedEX, Money Transfer, Moneybookers.
As far as withdrawal options are concerned, although there are less options overall, the options available are the most convenient / popular. Players can request payouts via Moneybookers, NETeller, FedEX, Cashier’s Check, ATM Cash Card, BetJam Transfer Card. Players are permitted to 1 free payout per month which will take between 1-5 business days to arrive, very competitive timeframes. Additional payout requests will be charged a nominal fee depending on the withdrawal option.
Bet Jamaica Customer Service: 3.7/5
The BetJamaica sportsbook employs a very courteous and knowledgeable staff willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. However they currently do not offer 24 hour support. Telephone, e-mail and Live Chat is available from Monday – Friday, 8:00 AM – 12:00 AM EST. The average response time for e-mails is 30-45 minutes. They offer support in English, French, Dutch and Spanish. Rumor has it that they will be extending support hours to a 24/7 schedule soon.

Bet Jamaica Software / Website: 3.8/5
The BetJamaica sportsbook uses the ASI/Extension Software which has a healthy balance of both quick loading speed and eye catching graphics. Once you’ve created your account, you will find it very simple to place wagers, view your wager history, account balance and pending wagers among other useful features.
That said, it might take some time to figure out the navigation of the site as the homepage offers links to current wagering lines, wager guides and promotional offers all on one page.
