WagerWeb Sportsbook Review

Bet Now HIGHLIGHTS:

WagerWeb has been around since 1994 and has made huge strides in the past few years towards joining the class of the most respected sportsbooks around. Now recognized for being one of the fastest-paying sportsbooks in existence, WagerWeb is definitely worth a look for small to mid-sized bettors. They do state in the rules that they cater to the recreational bettor only and don't want action from professionals or syndicate players.

WagerWeb has worked long and hard on improving its reputation, which goes hand-in-hand with its dedication to providing solid customer service and making the betting experience as enjoyable as possible. WagerWeb has been earning plenty of praise for its dealings with customers the past few years and is doing business the right way, which other sportsbooks have tried to emulate, with little success. Located in Costa Rica, WagerWeb is part of the Casablanca Gaming family and rates extremely well in the bonus department.

  • Has excellent Sportsbook Reward Program
  • One of the fastest-paying sportsbooks around
  • Solid selection of future betting opportunities

4 StarHalf Star Account Registration:

Signing-up for an account is a breeze and will just take several minutes. You can choose your own password, which is always a nice feature. If you run into any sort of problems you can always use the live chat feature or call customer service. You will be up and going in no time.

4 StarHalf Star Bonuses and Promotions:

WagerWeb rates very well in the bonus and promotion categories, although they can be a bit confusing at first. Your bonuses, including your initial deposit and any replenishing of your account, are partly determined by the amount of your deposit, although you can specify a higher bonus for an increased rollover requirement. If you make a deposit of $400 you can choose a 50% bonus, which comes in the form of free play, and have a 10 times rollover requirement, but you can also choose a 70% bonus with a 12-times rollover required. You should contact customer service with any questions before placing a deposit. If you make a credit card deposit, you will be tied into either the 30% bonus with a seven-times rollover requirement or the 50% bonus with a 12-times rollover requirement.

The promotions are a bit easier to decipher, as sports bettors will earn two points for every $100 to $400 wagered, depending on the level of their play, as there are four different levels of the Rewards Program. These points can be converted to free play or used to buy merchandise, such as televisions, IPODS, video game consoles and more.

4 StarHalf Star Site Navigation:

The site is extremely easy to navigate and there is a tutorial that will teach bettors all of the ropes regarding how to place the different types of wagers that are offered. The site is user-friendly and quite simple to use.

4 StarHalf Star Betting Options:

WagerWeb's betting limits are moderate compared to some other sportsbooks, but should be fine for the majority of bettors, with limits ranging to $5,000 for the NFL and $4,000 for college football to $3,000 for the NBA or college basketball. There is a $25 minimum wager for phone bets a $2 minimum for online bets.

You'll find all of the usual sports offerings at WagerWeb, including the lesser-known sports, along with auto racing, golf, tennis and more. The large majority of bettors will find odds on any event they wish to wager on.

4 StarHalf Star Odds:

WagerWeb caters to the recreational player, but their odds aren't quite as much slanted towards the favorites as other sportsbook who cater to the same type of bettor. You will find dime lines for baseball and fair odds on futures bets. WagerWeb does offer futures bets later in the season than many sportsbooks.

4 StarHalf Star Live Betting:

WagerWeb offers live betting for online players only, but doesn't have the live betting platform of other sportsbooks, where you can wager on the outcome of the next play, the next pitch, etc. WagerWeb offers in-game betting on selected events, where you can bet on the final outcome of the game while it is in progress.

4 Star Customer Service:

The customer service at WagerWeb is excellent, with the only negative that they are available by phone, e-mail or chat between the hours of 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. EST. WagerWeb takes a lot of pride in their customer service and it's evident when you deal with the company.
