The casino is stocked full of all the table games and slots you’ve come to expect. Topbet features all of the bells and whistles most online gambling sites are offering these days minus a racebook or poker rooms. Competition in the online wagering world is fierce though and there are many sites looking to get your action. Let’s take a good look at everything Topbet has to offer and see how they stack up with the rest. Is this the site for you? Let’s just find out.

History & Background
Topbet is not a new site by any stretch. They have been in business since 2002 and have had quite a rollercoaster ride along the way. Everything was on the up and up until 2011 when all hell broke loose. They worked with a company called FutureBet which provided all of their software as well as their payment processing and that’s what got them into trouble. Basically, FutureBet was processing payments but not payouts. FutureBet took the money and never looked back leaving Topbet in trouble and customers empty-handed. A brief shutdown followed but Topbet returned after a year under new management. However, they are still using FutureBet’s software and that seems odd. Needless to say, this history has not helped Topbet’s business or its reputation.
Welcome Bonus – Topbet provides a welcome matching bonus that increases the higher the deposit you make from 50% all the way to 100%. The more you deposit, the more they match.
$5 Free Spin in the Casino – The casino will give you a free spin at the roulette table worth $5.
$10 Monday Night NFL Free Bet – Every Monday at Topbet you receive a $10 free play on the Monday Night Football game during the NFL season.
$10 Thursday Night NBA Free Bet – Just like on Monday, Thursday during the NBA season earns you a free $10 bet.
Topbet likes to keep it simple with the banking options. They will accept payment from Visa, Mastercard, Western Union, and via check. However, while your options are simple, depositing is not. There are many hoops and forms to file before your account is open and your account is active.
As you can imagine, the public view of Topbet is not good. Cashing out is the whole reason players play and gamblers gamble and the complaints filed against this site are just too much. For large amounts and small, customers don’t see a return on their investment of not only money but also their time. Anyone who has done even the smallest amount of research on this site knows to stay far away.
Topbet has customer support available 24/7 via phone and email. Opting in or out of any of their bonuses requires you to get in touch with customer service directly. It is always available and easy to use for that reason.
Cons: Areas of improvement
- Reputation of occasionally being strict with withdrawing winnings
Obviously, it is not recommended to use this site for any kind of gambling; sports, casino, or otherwise. They do not pay out players and it’s as simple as that. In all the research done to compile the information for this review, not once did we find any sign that anyone from Topbet has refuted, denied, or even apologized for any of the complaints that have piled up against them over the years. They are happy to pay for advertising and take advantage of any sucker that comes along. They take in a lot of action so there must be plenty of suckers, plenty of gamblers that don’t research their sites, or, sadly, both. Everyone knows a well-run sportsbook or casino is an automatic moneymaker and there is plenty of money to be made. Ripping people off doesn’t have to be part of the business model but at Topbet, it seems to be.
