Most gambling reviews we perform are straightforward.

  • This site is good. We recommend.
  • This site is okay. We recommend, but there are better options.
  • This site is a scam. Avoid.

And so on.

But some reviews are tricky, like the one you’re reading now – our 2019 review. This is a trickier review because TopBet has a somewhat shady history.

From about 2002 to 2011, they worked with a company named FutureBet. FutureBet apparently handled everything for them, from the software to payment processing.

The latter is what got TopBet in trouble.

What they didn’t know – what no operator knew until it was too late – is that FutureBet likes to process deposits. But they don’t like to process cash outs. They took the money and ran, screwing both the operator and customer in one swoop..

You could say this wasn’t entirely TopBet’s fault. And, you’d be right. But here’s what’s weird about their business today.

They came back under new management after a brief hiatus in 2011-2012. They made the decision to handle their own payment processing.  But what’s crazy is they decided to continue using FutureBet’s software.

Say what?

You’d think TopBet would want nothing to do with FutureBet since they stole more than $1 million from online gamblers and operators over the past decade. That it’d be worth the money to develop your own platform.

But that’s not the case.

This makes it trickier to review them since you have to wonder why they’d continue to work with a rogue company. You have to wonder if they can be trusted any more today than before 2011-2012.

(Especially when you read about their current cash out problems.)

We’ll tell you where we stand on the issue in just a minute. But, for now, let’s get into our review and see what TopBet has to offer. Home

Rec-Focused Sportsbook

TopBet’s main product is their sportsbook. They focus heavily on US sports with a few international sports and events mixed in.

Here’s what you can bet on:

  • Football – Includes both NLF and college.
  • Baseball – Only MLB.
  • Tennis
  • International Soccer
  • Golf – Includes major events like the Ryder Cup.
  • Basketball – Includes both NBA and college games.
  • Mixed Martial Arts
  • Hockey – Includes the NHL.
  • Boxing
  • Entertainment – Bet on events such as the Oscars, Emmys and the presidential election.
  • Rugby Union

Sports betting professionals say they have one of the largest selections of football markets online – that most of their competitors don’t even come close.

They also have lots of different bets, which include sides, totals, futures, parlays, teasers, if-bets, reverses, player and team props. So, while they don’t have the breadth most sportsbooks do, they have depth – you have more options per sport they cover.

That’s the good news.

The bad news is that many of their bets – such as parlays, teasers and if-bets – are average, at best. And many of their props, futures and live bets are outright horrible.

That includes their betting limits, too. For example, the NFL and NCAA football markets have limits of $2,000 for sides and total. And their other markets are even smaller yet, with $1,000 sides or $500 max on totals.

To give you some perspective, you can bet as much as $20,000 to $50,000 per NFL side, or as much as $20,000 on NFL totals and moneylines when you join Bookmaker.

Bookmaker’s pricing is better, too. Competitive, but better.

Experts say this is because largely focuses on recreational bettors – bettors who probably wouldn’t know a good price or bet if it smacked him in the face, let alone care.

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, though, as you should have multiple sportsbook accounts to compare and get the best line prices anyway. If anything, you can have an account here simply for the larger selection of (football) bets TopBet offers that no one else does.

Lop-Sided Casino

The TopBet Casino is powered by Ace Gaming and BetSoft.

For the longest time I praised BetSoft for their software. It looks great and their games – especially their 3D slots – are a blast to play. I can play them for hours even on ‘free’ mode.

But they’ve been in the news recently for rigging their jackpots.

Not long ago a customer won a jackpot during a free spin round. But the casino (Betcoin) refused to pay them because of some non-existent rule they didn’t add until after the fact.

Then, according to reports, both BetSoft and Betcoin paid this person to say good things about them.

It’s hard to say if this is a one-time ordeal, or if it’s a sign of what’s to come.

We hope it’s the former, especially after looking at the quality of their games. They’re so good. You can see the best ones here. Just click on the title you’re interested in and you can learn more about that specific game, even play it for free.

Anyway, enough drooling over their games. Here’s a list of games you can expect to find at TopBet Casino, along with our comments.

They have a solid selection of games overall. Especially if you’re a slots, ‘fun games’ or table games type of player.

Where they drop the ball is with their blackjack and video poker selection. Most US-friendly casinos have half a dozen or more blackjack variations. And just as many (if not more) video poker variations.

If that’s what you’re looking for, then we recommend checking out Bovada or Ignition Casino. They use Real Time Gaming software, which is where all those variations come from. But they both also work with BetSoft if you don’t want to give up all those slot machines.

In addition to these games, TopBet also runs 150+ casino tournaments each month. This isn’t something you see at other casinos.

Bonuses, Free Bets & Cash Back

Here are the promotions currently running at TopBet:

$1,000 Deposit Bonus – This is your typical match bonus. But it’s unique in that the match percentage varies based on how much you deposit.

Here’s how that works:

  • $50 – $99.99 = 50%
  • $100 – $199.99 = 75%
  • $200 – $1,000 = 100%

The more you deposit, the more TopBet will match you – the more mileage you’ll get out of every dollar you deposit.

Pro Tip: Even if you can’t deposit the full $1,000, it makes sense to wait until you have at least $200. Because there’s a large difference in what you get depositing $150 compared to depositing $200. You’ll get $112.50 with the $150 deposit (for $262.50) compared to $200 (for a total of $400) with the $200 deposit. That extra $50 you deposit gets you nearly $90 more.

$10 Thursday Night Free NBA Bet – Only available on Thursday night games. Get $10 to bet on any game you want.

$10 Monday Night Free NFL Bet – Get $10 to bet on any NFL game you want. Available on Monday nights only.

Free $5 Casino Bonus – Get $5 to try out the casino software. No deposit necessary.

Rewards Program – Earn anywhere from 1 to 6 points for every dollar you wager in their online casino. Later on you can exchange your points for cash back.

What’s the catch?

TopBet requires that you rollover the bonus or free bets so many times before you can cash out. How much you have to wager depends on where and what you’re playing.

  • Sportsbook – The rollover is 5x the deposit plus bonus.
  • Casino – The rollover is 25x the deposit plus bonus.

Both these rollovers are reasonable when compared to other sportsbooks and casinos.

Banking Options + Banking Problems

You can make a deposit using:

  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • MoneyGram / Quick Cash
  • Checks
  • Pre-paid Visa

The min-deposit here is $50. This is a tad higher compared to other sportsbooks and casinos where you can deposit for as little as $10-$20.

When you’re ready to cash out you can use:

  • Check by courier
  • Western Union / Quick Cash

It’d be nice to have more cash out options. Having only 2 options is ridiculous.

You should expect to pay $40 per cash out, though they’ll cover money transfer fees for cash outs larger than $300. This is important to note, because they limit cash outs to $2,500 per week (even though you can win as much as $50,000 per week). So, it’ll cost you $160/month if you plan to cash out every week.

And, that’s even if you get your money.

According to one complaint, TopBet is down to only issuing paper checks. And they’re taking 2-3 months to get payments out. The same person said they requested a check on 9/19/2016, but hasn’t received anything since – a check, tracking number, nothing …except for a canned response.

Many other commenters have said the same thing. One commenter said payments have been getting slower and slower. Another claimed it took 43 days to get payment to his bank, only to try another cash out and it is day 24 with nothing received but the runaround.

And yet another person complained of still waiting for their July cash out. Their complaint is from the middle of October 2013.

In June one person said they received a wire transfer 5 days later for $2,000. This looks like a fluke, though, because someone posted in May they’ve been waiting for payment since March.

While it’s normal for offshore sites to have issues cashing players out, 3+ months is uncalled for, as are the canned responses. The least TopBet can do is give players tracking numbers and personal responses.

We hope this is merely a short term lapse in judgement, and not a glimpse of what’s to come.

Customer Support

If you need help or want to know where your payment is, you can contact support using:

Unfortunately, they don’t have a live chat option.


Okay, now that we’ve reached the end …what the heck do we think of

We can go either way.

On one hand, they continue to work with fraudster FutureBet. They also happen to be working with BetSoft, who’s been in the news recently for rigging jackpots. And, above all, players are complaining about how long it’s taking for TopBet to ship them their money.

On the other hand, they’ve been in business a long time, and have been under new management for 5-6 years. They’re licensed, regulated and accept US players. They handle their own payment processing now, too.

We also scoped out a sportsbook rating list we know we can trust, and the owner/operator of the website has given them a B- rating.

So, taking all this into account…

We recommend TopBet, but only if you already have an account at one of the other top tier sportsbooks, such as Bovada, 5Dimes or BetOnline. And if you do sign up with TopBet, deposit a nominal amount and understand they’re 2-3+ months behind on payments …with no clear sign if that will improve or get worse over the coming months.

Good luck.

Stay away from Topbet. They will not payout. Been waiting a year for $2,000 payout. Give you same bs about waiting for processor. STAY AWAY
FTOPBET commented: 6 Nov 2018
I've been waiting over 60 days for a payout of $1,000. Keep getting the same bulls**t statement - "We're just waiting on our processor." DO NOT USE TOP BET - YOU WILL NOT GET A PAYOUT
Joel Mingel commented: 27 Oct 2018
I’ve made a request to withdraw $500 on 8/18 and I have yet to be paid. Whenever I call the site will not give me a date for when I will receive my money. I believe that this site is a Ponzi scheme and I will never see my money again.
Michael commented: 21 Sep 2018
I used TopBet 6 years ago and they paid out with no issues. I hit a six team baseball parlay a month ago for 3000. They told me that it will take 15-20 business day to receive my 2460 dollar check. They told me to be patient, they are waiting for the tracking number. Place is a fraud. I’ve been using 5Dimes for the last 7 years and I get paid out in less than 3 days. F**k TopBet!
Michael commented: 2 Apr 2018
Awful site. They're very responsive until it's time to payout. Then nothing.
Jack R. commented: 26 Feb 2018
Follow up. Does anyone know who I can report them to. Curacao has an eGaming regulator, but they told me that TopBet is not registered with them as of February 22, 2018.
Jack R. commented: 26 Feb 2018
I am learning the hard way that this site is a SCAM. They will not let me withdraw my funds (only $780) because they said I have not place enough wagers. No other word for them. The worse name in gaming. They are Welches. They are glad to take your money and give you bonuses. But they do not PAY!
James commented: 15 Dec 2017
I used them back in 2013, so I thought they would be fine. NOPE! First off they screwed me on the 100% sign up bonus because I put the promo in wrong. They would not give me the Promo even though I called them. Then, the next day my credit card is stolen and somebody purchased 1k of stuff in Omaha, Nebraska. Then, I went to do a cashout and they sent me a check in two weeks, but the check is from some marketing company in Montreal and nobody will accept the check. I even took the check to one of those seedy dump in the wall cash my check places and they would not accept it. Let just say I fell victim to this place. They should be shut down, investigated, and then tried for their criminal service.
Alan Saluck commented: 27 Nov 2017
TOPBET lied about the rollover...I know you have to call after deposit to say you do not want bonus which is what I exactly did....Then after my 1st bet I wanted to check if I could withdrawal my funds...They removed the withdrawal link so I made phone call only to have the customer support say I have not met the rollover....So I stated I called in an requested no rollover....Now they will not give me my money....How do I get my money from TOPBET?....Thank you for any help...Regards, Alan GET YOUR MONEY OUT AND RUN AWAY FROM TOPBET!
John Money commented: 26 Nov 2017
Soooo glad i checked this before dumping 5K for the NFL bonus. I would’ve been like you degenerate chumps and out of big money. Think I will save my cash now to buy a new car. Love being able to sleep soundly at night and still rich and not robbed by these people
pilot330 commented: 21 Nov 2017
Hello, Wow I'm requesting my first payout now for $725. After reading this I guess it's not going to happen and my $500 is lost. I do have a question. Did everyone need to provide them a copy of your driver licenses, verification form and front/back copy of CC used for deposit? I'm now nervous to send this in?? Any directions or comment? Thanks
Paul commented: 18 Nov 2017
I just received my second payout from Topbet. Both came with the 20 days they say it takes to process. The payment I received today was received in 12 days.
Ken commented: 10 Oct 2017
7 months now and still waiting for a 2.5k payout
Joe commented: 30 Aug 2017
I made a deposit unfortunately with them for 500 dollars only because of a 100% reload bonus for the NFL season. I did not put the promo code in correctly because their payment is confusing. I have not made any wagers in my account yet. They are unable to make the update hahaha. Now I read all of these people are not receiving payouts. I received payouts back in 2014 in a timely manner so I did not think it would be a HUGE issue. Wow, I feel like an idiot now. Stay away.
Mike hunt commented: 23 Aug 2017
Topbet reported as fraud/criminals!!!! Owner says American players are "chumps" and deserve to get screwed because USA is stupid country
Ohwonton Asiam commented: 23 Aug 2017
Topbet is broke!! It can't pay it's own employees. They collect and do not payout! They owe me $1800 since February. Ex employee said The principals take the money out as soon as it is deposited so there is nothing left to payout. Employees are let go on payday and not paid. Criminals run it. SCAM. Clearly no regulatory body watches Internet gaming. Any web site that gives Topbet any review is clearly in on it. The only review should be "topbet is closed, broke, doesn't payout and scores an "F".
Ken commented: 5 Aug 2017
more than 4 months now...still nothing
Joe commented: 19 Jul 2017
Ken commented: 14 Jul 2017
3.5 months still waiting for my payout. Requested it last April. New players pls. try Bovada, 5dimes ,Intertops. Sbg global if you want a fast payout. Only 1 day for bitcoin to receive your money and 4 days for bank wires. Don't try topbet you will be just be disappointed.
Steve commented: 7 Jul 2017
Anyone have any updates on their payments on this thread?
Tom commented: 29 Jun 2017
I've waited nearly 2 mos. (40 business days) for a $1100.00 check. They said 15-20 business days. This site is trash. They simply don't payout yet still call me regarding absurd bonuses for deposits. Beyond frustrating - shame on me for using this garbage company.
Ken commented: 26 Jun 2017
I'm still waiting for my payout. 3 months now. Still the same excuses. Requested my payout April 4.
Pat commented: 22 Jun 2017
Same thing, no payout, requested withdrawal on april 22nd. Spoke with them last week and they said they have a bitcoin option. Gave them my wallet address and still nothing. FYI, bitcoin transfers instantly so there should be no wait time here
Ken commented: 13 Jun 2017
They will not pay winners anymore they are just waiting for more deposits to come in before they will close their operation permanently. I wished their office will be like Resorts world Manila since they are scammers.
Cong commented: 13 Jun 2017
I'm still waiting to get pay. Withdrawal from march 10 now still nothing. I called them today and they gave same bs answers. Still waiting thirt party processor for tracking number. They told me to put back my withdrawal money back into my account and received 10%. Wtf, you don't pay me and you tell me keep gambling. Run away from topbet.
Ken commented: 12 Jun 2017
Still waiting for a payout almost 3 months now. Today they called me I thought I'll be receiving a tracking number. But I can't believed it they are reminding me of the bonuses if I will make a deposit..what's the use of those bonuses if you can't get your winnings. They are desperate to get some more funds. But don't pay. Pls. Stay away from topbet. As of now they have an F rating, meaning avoid the site.
Ken commented: 8 Jun 2017
They are still active on facebook. Reminding players of the free bet and bonuses. They want players to make deposits. But they are not mentioning how bad their payout system is. I'm still waiting for my payout since March. Pls.don't play at topbet.
Ken commented: 8 Jun 2017
Topber should be now banned. They only accepts deposits. They are not receiving any withdrawal requests. Really unfair to those players who are still depositing. Not knowing that they can't have their winnings bec. withdrawal requests is suspended.
Jason commented: 8 Jun 2017
Top bet is a fraud. The cash out system is impossible. They will never let you cash out. Does not matter how little. They charge you 40 bucks to cash out and they still don't send if. Never play with Top bet if you actually want your winnings.
Marvelous Hagler commented: 7 Jun 2017
Players beware - They don't have funds to pay you out - Still waiting for the NFL season to begin before they can process a payout
Juan commented: 6 Jun 2017
I requested 2 payouts. Only response you get is that the 3rd party processor did not get back to them. Going on 60 days already.
Chris commented: 1 Jun 2017
I requested two seperate payouts for $2500 and $1660 on March 20th and I call almost everyday and get the same excuse. I agree with some on here that Topbet doesn't have the funds or else they'd pay their customers. Does anybody know what legal action we can take against Topbet or are we just screwed?
Ken commented: 26 May 2017
New players , pls. forget about the big bonus for new players. You will be just disappointed with their payout system. Might not even get your winnings.
Ken commented: 26 May 2017
They should stop accepting deposits, not till they pay all outstanding payouts. Or else new winners will be really be disappointed. Including other winners who are still waiting for their payouts since last year. Feb 6 payout till now no definite answer. New players pls. Find another gambling site. Not Slowbet, I mean topbet.
Aydin commented: 25 May 2017
I have been waiting for months to get my withdrawal. And just like everyone says they bs you about processing and say there's no tracking but it's a priority. Fuck topbet. Stay Away!!!!
Ken commented: 25 May 2017
Requested feb.6 and it's almost june. No tracking number yet. They should stop accepting deposits or new players
Bryan commented: 17 May 2017
Been waiting over 3months for two withdrawals. Same response every time read from a script. Very frustrating.
Ken commented: 17 May 2017
They will be closing soon. Just waiting for other players to deposit more. They don't have funds to pay the winners. Processors is not an excuse. If slowbet I mean topbet is really serious in improving their payout system and if they have funds there is no reason why they can't pay winners on time. Conclussion no funds to pay players
Ken commented: 14 May 2017
Requested a payout since Feb. 6 still waiting for my tracking number. Just telling me to be patient. But if you want to make a deposit and it was declined they will even call you to try again. Just want to get your money but don't want to pay on time. I think they don't enough funds to pay the winners. And just waiting for players to lose so that they can pay.
Bob commented: 14 May 2017
I made 2 separate $2500 withdrawal requests on 1/6/17 and 2/3/17 and was paid by bitcoin on 3/13/17 and by singapore check on 3/20/17. I have since made 4 more $2500 withdrawal requests on 2/18/17, 2/25/17, 3/14/17 and 3/21/17 and I have received nothing and continue to hear the same nonsense about their outside processor problems. So, that's almost 3 months with no payment.
Justin commented: 11 May 2017
Been waiting 3 months now for a payout. contacted them a lot they just keep saying the same thing saying its their processing department and they cant give a time frame. They're a scam.
Dave commented: 9 May 2017
Been waiting exactly 8 weeks for a payout. Called earlier tonight and they don't have any information for me, other than if I can be patient. VERY infuriating
