Welcome to our review of AllYouBet. Here we will be running our expert eye over this young bookmaker, looking at issues like their free bet, and how easy it is to deposit and withdraw money etc.
We will also be looking at the AllYouBet target audience, which seems to be predominately North American. Specialising in North American sports, AllYouBet gives UK based punters who like betting on sports such as American Football, Baseball, Basketball, and Ice Hockey, a great alternative to their British bookmaking counterparts.
Registering with AllYouBet
Starting with the registration process, and you will be pleased to know it is a fairly basic one. On the homepage, you will see there is a ‘SIGN UP NOW’ yellow button in the top left-hand corner of the website. Simply click on that and fill in your details.
On their website, AllYouBet state that all deposits are 100% sure. In fairness, these days, you shouldn’t expect anything less.
When opening a new account, you will need to upload verification documents for money laundering reasons. This is now becoming the norm at any bookmakers or casino.
The verification documents are two-fold. First, you will need photo id, for this your Driving Licence or Passport is acceptable.
Secondly, you will need a recent utility bill from the last 6 months; this is to verify your address. You are able to email copies of these documents to AllYouBet.
AllYouBet are very on top of this process and seem to take online security, and verification, very seriously. A good sign for any online bookmaker.

How Easy Is to Deposit or Withdraw with AllYouBet
Credit cards are the recommended (by AllYouBet) to deposit with. Master Card, American Express, or Visa is their preferred options. You can also deposit using NETELLER, Skrill, or paysafecard.
Withdrawing doesn’t seem as easy, and there is eye-watering charges for the following methods. Starting with bank transfer, and this has a $60.00 fee. A cheque costs $30, with a minimum payout of $150, and a maximum of $3000.
They also have a boast on the website that they guarantee your cheque within 2 weeks. Not much of a boast to me. Other methods include a Debit Card from AllYouBet; this too has a cost of $15 per withdrawal.
There are two other methods of withdrawing, and both look better. It is using NETELLER and Skrill, both e-wallet accounts. This looks the easiest method for us, as there is no charge. You will have to use your NETELLER or Skrill account to have deposited first though.
This may well work out to be the best way to do things. Just simply stick to either NETELLER or Skrill. Deposit with them and withdraw with them. Keep things simple.
The accepted currency is US Dollars. For this reason, an e-wallet is also a good idea. This way you can deposit to your e-wallet in your own currency, and then change it to US Dollars, before depositing.
Layout and Functionality of AllYouBet Website
We believe the layout of AllYouBet is pretty basic. In a way, this is a good thing, though, as it makes navigation extremely easy. Sometimes simple is better.
On the sportsbook home page, there is a ‘Next Up’ section for you to see what sporting events are imminent. Directly below that, there is a ‘Trending Now’ section that allows you to see the most popular bets coming up.
There’s not much there but looking at it from a positive point of view, it’s easier to navigate. As good as some of the British based bookmakers are, sometimes your head can be in a spin looking at their homepages. You certainly won’t have that problem with AllYouBet.
All the sports (and non-sporting markets) you wish to bet on can be found in an easy to use menu down the left-hand side of the screen.
The odds layout is American style, which can be a bit tricky if you’re not familiar with it. There is the option to switch to decimal odds or fractional odds. So that shouldn’t create any problems for users.
AllYouBet Sign-up Bonus and Free Bets
There is an attractive looking sign-up bonus for new customers. With AllYouBet, it’s a deposit bonus, rather than a free bet. You can get a 50% deposit bonus, up to a maximum of $100.
There is a downside to this, though. You will need to rollover your deposit and bonus a massive 16 times, at minimum odds of 1.5.
Unfortunately, if you are a resident of one of the following countries – Australia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Ukraine and United Kingdom – you are not eligible to receive the sign-up bonus.
From time to time, AllYouBet rewards existing customers with free bets. These free bets will need to be wagered within a certain time frame, or it will be withdrawn. This is the same process that most bookmakers use.
There are also regular offers for existing customers. These offers include the AllYouBet monthly free bet offer. To qualify for this, you will need to place a minimum of $500 on a specific sport.
For example, it could be that during the month of January, you need to place $500 on American Football. All the information you need is on the Promotions page. If you complete the qualifying criteria, then AllYouBet will send you a coupon code for your $50 free bet.
Quantity and Quality of Betting Markets
Like with the layout, they are basic. There is a decent selection of sports to choose from, but our review has found that AllYouBet don’t have a massive selection of markets beneath the main markets.
Again, simplicity could be better. Some websites we go on these days, it can be hard work just spotting where you need to go to put a bet on a team to win a football match. That won’t be a problem here.
When it comes to betting on football, you don’t get the 150 plus markets you get with more mainstream bookmakers. With AllYouBet, you only get around 10 plus markets, including the most popular, such as match result, correct score, half time/full time, half time winner, double chance, over/under 2.5 goals.
Sports That AllYouBet Cover
As we mentioned at the beginning of our review, a lot of the sports covered by AllYouBet are North American. You can bet on American Football, Aussie Rules, Basketball, Baseball, Ice Hockey, Boxing, UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), Cricket, Cycling, Golf, Handball, Horse Racing, Motor Sports, Rugby, Football, Tennis, and Volleyball.
As well as these markets, you can bet on non-sports events such as Entertainment, Politics, Stock Market (based on the Dow Jones), and there is a ‘Non-Sporting’ tab, where you can bet on events like snow at Christmas.
Live Betting with AllYouBet
Well, another disappointment. There is little to no live betting services from AllYouBet. This is a big regret and lets down from any bookmaker. In the UK, we are very spoilt by the excellent live betting experience we get, so this makes it harder for us British punters.
There is also no live streaming of events, or commentary, another thing we are familiar with in the UK. This is clearly one major downside of having a simple and basic web layout, which is what you get with AllYouBet.
There is a reference to live betting terms and conditions on AllYouBet’s website, suggesting the odd event may go in-play. But it looks like betting in play with this bookmaker, is the exception, rather than the norm.
Making A Bet with AllYouBet
Placing a bet with AllYouBet looks simple enough. Currently, on the homepage, they are just placed in a grid system, with little detail about the event. They just look like two long grids. It looks like this is just on the homepage and is done for special reasons.
When you click on the individual sport though, it’s different – and far better – experience. You can see clearly what it is you are betting on, and your selection appears in the top right-hand corner immediately. There is no pop-up betting slip like you get with other bookmakers.
There are also no additional gimmicks we have come to get used to from mainstream bookies, such as cash out, or price boosts, money back specials, etc.
In concluding, it’s not difficult to bet with AllYouBet, but it might take you a while to get used to their ways.
What About the Mobile Experience?
Placing a bet on mobile isn’t difficult, but it also isn’t the greatest of experiences. To start with, there is no mobile app, and consequently no mobile bonus on offer as well. As yet, they seem to have badly neglected the mobile experience.
This extends to placing a bet online. The website isn’t mobile-enabled either, meaning you see the same layout as you get on the desktop site.
As our review has already mentioned, the AllYouBet website is a simple and uncomplicated one. This means that it isn’t that difficult to place a bet on your mobile. At the same time, they really could do with enhancing the mobile experience.
AllYouBet Company Information
AllYouBet are a Caribbean based company. They run off the .ag domain, which is intended for use for companies and entities connected with the Caribbean Islands of Antigua and Barbuda.
There is little other company information on the AllYouBet website that we can use in this review. No information about how owns them, where they are based, or where they are registered. All of which, we find slightly concerning.
AllYouBet also have an online casino for punters. This involves a slightly different sign-up process, and sign up offer, to the Sportsbook.
You first need to download the casino software, before then registering your details. The same verification process will need to be completed.
What About Customer Care?
Good customer care is an important part of any bookmakers’ duties, and these days getting this side of the business correct, is almost as important as the markets on offer, etc.
We all want to be treated with care and respect, so a bookmaker’s reputation will get taken into account when we are considering opening a new account.
You will be pleased to know that AllYouBet is CDS certified. This gives disgruntled punters the opportunity to fill out an online form and submit it to the Central Disputes System Corporation.
As well as that, general support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This can be done by phone, live chat, or even Skype. There is also an email option, where you can either email the cashier department about payment queries, or you can contact support about general enquiries.
Our conclusion about AllYouBet in this review is mixed. From a UK based perspective, they are not ideal. There is a strong emphasis on North American sports, and the UK is clearly not their target audience.
UK customers also cannot get their sign-up bonus or the regular AllYouBet free bet. AllYouBet are also a US Dollars only bookmaker, another slight obstacle to UK based customers.
Speaking to customer services from the UK may also have its difficulties. We are all aware of how UK based bookies work, but what about one based out in the Caribbean, where cultures can differ.
On the flip side, they are happy to take e-wallet customers, which suits UK customers. This allows us to put our pounds sterling into our e-wallets, and easily transfer them to US Dollars.
Their website is also fairly easy to use, it has an easy on the eye simplicity about it, if not the depth of markets.
And finally, if you are a fan of US-based sports, AllYouBet could be ideal for you. Although UK bookmakers have a lot of US-based markets available these days, AllYouBet clearly specialises on US-based markets and may be ideal for punters looking for an alternative bookie to place their bets with.
