Starting out as a small player in 1996, Justbet.com has been a constantly evolving online sportsbook. Based out of Costa Rica, Justbet is US bettor friendly with a decent track record for security and support. You won’t find a lot of the sharps wagering here as this is best viewed as a recreational sports betting site.
Just Bet Reputation: 3.9/5
Justbet Sportsbook is the flagship brand of its own group of online gambling sites which includes Badlands sportsbook and BetGuardian sportsbook, formerly known as the Tradewinds Group.
Although JustBet.com is a mid-tier online sports betting brand it has carved out its own little niche spot in the sports wagering industry with offerings that include betting lines on all mainstream pro and college sports such as college football and NCAA basketball, as well as a decent selection of futures and prop bets.
While still a world away from heavyweight sportsbooks listed in our Top Sportsbooks section, JustBet are making small strides with their newly revamped web site and continuous efforts to improve their marketing and customer service.
Just Bet Bonuses / Value: 4/5
The bonuses offered at Justbet.com are not the most extensive in the industry and they offer minimal value. With a minimum of $100 to a maximum of $2,500 first time deposit you will receive a 40% bonus. It should be noted that this is not a cold hard cash bonus but rather a free play bonus. Both the deposit and the free-play bonus must be rolled over 8 times before you can make a withdrawal.
They offer a 15% Free-Play “Reup Bonus” on all subsequent deposits with a reduced rollover coming in at 4 times. They also offer an industry standard 20% referral bonus that is tagged with a 5 times rollover.
If you hit a dry spell along the way, Justbet offers 10% cash back on your net loses every six months. You need to play at least 20 out of 26 weeks during the period to qualify for this bonus but it is paid as cash rather than a free play.
Dig a little deeper and you can find a 75% bonus free play is offered on all first deposits. The rollover is huge at 10 x (the bonus plus deposit) and you must wager at least $2,000 in the sports or race book or $10,000 in the casino to qualify.
Just Bet $$$ / Security: 3.9/5
We are comfortable in suggesting that you can wager with confidence at JustBet sportsbook knowing your personal information and transactions are secure. JustBet has a very good track record in this respect, and it is difficult to find any word to the contrary in sports betting forums.
JustBet.com Deposit Methods
Deposits at justbet.com are quick and seamless online or over the phone. You can make a deposit with major credit cards, Click2Pay, Neteller and Moneybookers. By calling their customer service department you can also make a person-to-person transfer, send a cashier’s check or a bank wire. Their transfer instructions change daily so you need to make that call before you make a transfer.
JustBet.com Withdrawal Options
Withdrawals are nowhere near as convenient or seamless as deposits. They accept withdrawal requests, by phone only, Monday to Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM PT. They offer one free withdrawal ($300 minimum) per calendar month but after that, their fees can be very pricey. Examples of this are the $90 they charge for a bank wire and if you request a withdrawal that is under $300 you will pay a hefty fee ($40 fee on $100 cashout).
Just Bet Customer Service: 3.9/5
Live Chat & Toll Free Phone support is available starting at 7:00 AM PT Monday through Friday and 5:00 AM PT Saturday and Sunday. They both close as soon as the last game of the day gets underway. The live assistants are very helpful and professional but the hours of operation are below industry standards.
Email support is also available but expect a long wait time for a reply if you choose this method. The FAQ section isn’t particularly helpful as it is generalized with lots of vague one-line answers or referrals to other areas within the site.
Toll Free Phone: 1-800-274-8313 or 1-800-562-1619
Local Phone Line: 011-506-2298-5978
Just Bet Software / Website: 4.5/5
Despite recent software upgrades to their ASI betting platform, and a flashy homepage, Justbet.com still lags behind the standards set by better known online gaming industry brands. We found the site difficult to navigate with slow loading pages and a hairpin trigger on disconnections. If you step away from the site to do some game studies, you will be timed out in very short order.
As this JustBet review will show, this is a smaller sportsbook that gets credit for running a tight albeit small operation in the face of stiff competitors. That said, they have a fair bit of work ahead of them if they want to run with the big dogs.
