175% Sign-Up Bonus
3 – 12 Days
BetPhoenix is an all-in-one type of gambling site that is based out of the gambling mecca of Costa Rica. They are licensed by Gaming Curacao which is not an ideal license to have, but it is better than no license at all.
Ever since they were founded in the year 2006 (or 2007, depending on your source of information), they have focused on offering top-notch gambling products to gamblers on the internet. These products include a virtual casino, a live casino, a sportsbook and a racebook.
They started out with rocky reviews across the internet as they were faced with many complaints about slow withdrawals and website software problems.
However, they have cleaned up their act in recent times and sites such as SBR have even improved their rating of BetPhoenix from a “C-” to a “B” over the last couple of years.
One of their unique features is that they offer customer service in four different languages. This minimizes the chances that a player does not receive the customer service that they need just because of a language barrier. The four languages that are supported here are Vietnamese, Chinese, English, and Spanish.
Like most gambling sites that are not governed by a strict gambling license company, BetPhoenix leaves it up to the gamblers to make sure that it is legal to play in their country.
We asked their customer service team for a list of the banned countries and we were told that this was “internal information” which we did not have permission to access.
This is the first time we have seen this happen, since most sites will simply list this information in their terms and conditions page.
After persistence, their customer service team sent back this message:
We asked who they were referring to when they said “they” and we were unable to get an answer. We had a 25 minute conversation with them and they were not helpful at all. They kept changing there answers.
They also said:
One minute they would say there are no restricted countries, then the next they would say they are not allowed to give us the list of restricted countries.
We were rather disappointed with their customer service team as they kept avoiding our questions, kept changing their answer and were not helpful overall.
While the casino on BetPhoenix is relatively small compared to other gambling sites with just 36 games, it is important to remember that the casino is just one-third of their entire operation.
However, they managed to get in a lot of the basic casino games that people love to play, including blackjack, which has four different variations. This is the first time that we have ever seen a site that has almost as many card games as it does slot games, which is a breath of fresh air.
The main strength of the casino on BetPhoenix is the fact that they are well rounded. No one category is going to wow you with their list of games, but they manage to have a nice list from which everyone should be able to pick a game or two that they enjoy playing.
Normally, online casinos will have a table games section, but BetPhoenix chose to put all of the card games in one section and separate them from other table games. There are only seven of these card games listed in the “Card Games” section, which is not particularly impressive.
However, four of these seven card games are blackjack variations, which is a plus for those who enjoy one of the most popular casino games in history.
Below is the list of seven card games that BetPhoenix has to offer:
Upon further inspection of the game library, we found that there are six more card games hiding in the Video Poker section. The additional six card games are as follows:
Slot games make up the largest percentage of BetPhoenix’s game library with a total of 15 games. Most online casinos contain hundreds of slot games, so we are not sure why they decided to go so light in this category.
The slot games that are available for players on BetPhoenix Casino are listed below:
BetPhoenix offers three different variations of roulette for their players, which is perfectly fine by us. Unlike other gambling games, you don’t necessarily need a ton of variety when it comes to roulette, since they are all basically the same game with minor tweaks.
The three variations that are included are the three most popular types of roulette played around the world known as European roulette, American roulette, and French roulette.
BetPhoenix offers six different variations of video poker according to their game library webpage, but this is incorrect. In the “Video Poker” section, they have all card games listed.
Ironically, their only two video poker games are listed under the “All Games” section but not anywhere else. These two games are called Jacks or Better and Wild Texas.
Unlike some casinos, BetPhoenix offers a few live casino games which feature live dealers in a remote location. There is a total of three variations of live casino games:
This is a small list, but it is commendable that they bothered to have any at all. These are three of the most basic games that players love to gamble on, and you will be able to communicate with the live dealer via webcam while they deal the cards or spin the wheel for you!
When we tested out this live casino feature, we were pleased with the video quality and the sound quality of the live video feed. We were easily able to tell what the cards and the dealers were telling us, which is always a huge plus in the live casino world.
While there are only three of these types of games, it shows that BetPhoenix cares about their casual players who do not know how to play many casino games. These games require no gambling skills whatsoever and they are a breath of fresh air for some people in a casino setting.
The three types of miscellaneous games are:
The second portion of BetPhoenix’s gambling site is a rather large sportsbook that has a plethora of promotions attached to it. This sportsbook features bets on up to 29 different markets as well as a ton of different submarkets, which are listed below:
College American Football
College American Basketball
Soccer – UEFA
Soccer – England
Soccer – Spain
Soccer – Italy
Soccer – Germany
Soccer – France
Soccer – Europe
Soccer – America
Soccer – Africa
Soccer – Asia
Soccer – FIFA World Cup 2018
Mixed Martial Arts
This is quite an impressive list of betting markets, with an obvious focus on every game of soccer that is ever played anywhere on planet Earth. It is also great to see that they have esports betting, which is somewhat rare to find even though the video game-based sport is blowing up in popularity these days.
We were extremely happy with the level of organization that is involved in this sportsbook, as it is nearly impossible to fail to find what you are looking for. The game betting lines are also organized in a very neat and tidy chart which is easy to read.
As soon as you click on whatever market you are interested in betting on, every relevant bet pops right up on the screen for you.
As far as live betting goes, BetPhoenix appears to be a huge fan of this feature. Live betting is when you are allowed to bet on the outcome of a game while it is still running, which is convenient for those of us who are always late. They have included a live betting option for major sports such as football, baseball, basketball, and hockey.
Upon entering the racebook, it is very obvious that they put a lot of effort into this part of their gambling site. The graphics are clean and crisp, and everything is organized in a very neat fashion. The three main menus to choose from are Horse Rules, Track Odds, and Tracklist.
Unfortunately, there are no bonus promotions associated with the racebook on BetPhoenix, so what you see here is what you get. However, their promotions in other areas are mostly comprised of deposit bonuses with very difficult playthrough requirements anyway, so this is not a huge deal.
The Tracklist option brings you to a list of each horse track that holds races throughout the year and also tells what the maximum payout for each grade is. We have listed these tracks below along with their maximum payout amounts and track grade:
The “Horse Rules” section states that any track which is not on this list will be set a default maximum payout of $5,000. It also states that the horses will be identifiable by saddlecloth number instead of their name, so be sure to make note of this number before going to make your bet.
You might be wondering what types of odds you will be getting on these horse bets, and we might be about to tell you. Just hold your horses for a second!
For a “Win”, “Place” or “Show” bet, you will just be able to refer to the specific track odds to know what you will be getting. For other bets, it will be different according to what track grade the race is taking place on.
Below is the list of bet names and what their payouts are for each track grade:
We appreciate the fact that the banking page on Phoenix casino is well organized to show which methods are used for deposits and which are used for withdrawals. You might be shocked how many sites do not do this..
The banking options seem pretty limited overall since there are only six deposit methods and three withdrawal methods. It is comforting to see that they at least included the main players such as Visa, though, since one of the hallmarks of a shady unreliable site is when Visa refuses to do business with them.
Here is the list of deposit methods that are available in BetPhoenix:
The main thing that catches our eye is the first deposit method on their list is the cryptocurrency known as Bitcoin. This virtual coin has been exploding in value lately, and you might find that even when you lose some of it you actually win money anyway on some days.
Not only is it valuable, but it is also a quick and reliable way to get your money into an online casino.
We do not recommend using the Moneygram or Western Union deposit methods because the fees that are associated with these methods are just too large.
However, BetPhoenix says on their site that they will cover these fees if you deposit a minimum of $300, so feel free to take advantage of this if you feel like it.
These methods will also involve leaving the house and going to a merchant in order to complete your transfer, which might involve more energy spending than you had originally planned on doing just to gamble online.
Depositing by check might take a few days, so this should be your absolute last resort, since all other methods will be completed instantly or at least on the same day. Depositing by bank wire is ideal if you are depositing a large sum of money, since the limit is way larger than other methods at $10,000.
Here is the list of withdrawal methods that are available on BetPhoenix:
This is the scarcest list of withdrawal methods that we have ever seen. It is quite curious that Visa card is not on this list when they were clearly on the deposit list.
Once again, we recommend avoiding the Moneygram option at all costs. The fees for this payout method are an absurdly large percentage of your total payout amount, and BetPhoenix does not offer to cover these fees at all for withdrawals. It is also the most inconvenient option, making it last place on this list in our eyes.
Check via mail is a decent option if you are withdrawing an amount between $1,000 and $2,000. However, each check will be sent in increments of $500 and you will be charged a fee of $50 per check.
This could add up rather quickly, and it also takes about a week to see a check via mail which just adds to the inconvenience.
If you are not withdrawing money from this site using Bitcoin, then you are doing it wrong. It is very easy to send Bitcoin to one of your e-wallets of choice, which can then send money to your bank account.
We recommend using e-wallets such as Coinbase or Bittrex to get your Bitcoin transactions started. The only restriction on Bitcoin withdrawals is that they have a maximum amount of $4000 per withdrawal.
BetPhoenix has a TON of bonus promotions which apply to all the different sections of their site. We feel that this promotions program could use a little more variety since nearly all of these promotions are deposit bonuses.
Nonetheless, there are a ton of welcome bonuses and reload bonuses that are worth taking a look at, so let’s dig in.
As a warm welcome to their site, BetPhoenix is offering anyone who registers an account the chance to claim a 175% deposit bonus in their sportsbook. This bonus will be paid out in the form of free play credit which has a playthrough requirement of 18 times the amount of the deposit plus the bonus.
This adds up to about 50 times the amount of the deposit, which is slightly worse than average.
The minimum deposit that you can make in order to claim this bonus is $100 and the maximum deposit is $1,500. If our math serves us correctly, this means that the most bonus free play you can claim is $2,625 when you make the maximum deposit of $1,500.
Since the rollover is 18 times the amount of the deposit plus the bonus, this works out to $1,800 plus $47,250 which comes to a grand total of $49,050 that must be wagered before a withdrawal can be made.
For those of you who have already taken advantage of the Sportsbook Sign-Up Bonus, your bonus adventures do not stop there! The next bonus that you will be able to take advantage of is the Reload Bonus, which comes in three different sizes.
You can either accept the 150% reload (Bonus Code RL150), the 125% reload (Bonus Code RL125), or the 100% reload (Bonus Code RL100).
Well, if you look at the bonus terms and conditions you can plainly see that everything about these three reload bonuses are the same except for their playthrough requirements and bonus percentages.
The playthrough requirement for the 150% bonus is 16 times the amount of the bonus plus the deposit. The playthrough requirement for the 125% bonus is 14 times the amount of the bonus plus the deposit, and the playthrough requirement for the 100% bonus is 12 times the amount of the bonus plus the deposit.
Therefore, it is clear that the smaller percentage bonuses are mainly meant for players who do not have much spare time with which to complete the playthrough requirements. The more time you have to dedicate to playing, the larger of a bonus you should claim!
We also recommend taking advantage of the full bonus no matter which one you choose. This way you can get maximum value from your deposited money. The maximum deposit for each bonus is $1,500 while the minimum deposit for each one is $100.
You will receive bonus money in the form of free play money which can be used in any casino game of your choice.
Finally, we come to a bonus that will get sports fans cheering on their feet. This 50% low roll bonus is meant for use in the sportsbook only and a minimum deposit of $100 is required. The bonus code for this promotion is LOWROLL, and the maximum bonus that you can be rewarded is $300 in free play.
If you want to earn this max bonus of $300, you will need to deposit a total of $600. Once you do this, you will need to complete the playthrough requirement which is a very reasonable 5 times the amount of your deposit plus bonus winnings.
Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency that is the latest craze in the online gambling world, and depositing into the BetPhoenix sportsbook with some of these coins will reap you great rewards. As long as you deposit at least $200 worth of Bitcoins, you will receive a 100% free play bonus of up to $1,000 in the sportsbook.
The playthrough requirement for this Bitcoin special is 15 times the amount of the deposit plus the bonus winnings that result from the free play. There is a two-week hold on this sort of deposit bonus, which means you will not be able to withdraw no matter what happens during those two weeks.
If you have time to gamble on Tuesday or Wednesdays, you should always take advantage of this deposit special. You just need to deposit at least $300 by getting a friend to transfer you the money using the promo code P2P and you will instantly be rewarded with 100% cash bonus.
The playthrough on this bonus will be 18 times the amount of the deposit plus the cash bonus. This is actually a very reasonable promotion that has a lot of value as long as you can find a friend who already has an account or wants to make a new one.
Much like the Low Roll Bonus, the Credit Card Bonus comes in three different sizes. As long as you plan on depositing a minimum of $100 with a credit card to do some sports betting, you will benefit by receiving one of the free play bonuses.
The three bonuses that you can choose from are a 10% free play bonus, a 15% free play bonus, or a 20% free play bonus. The main difference between these bonuses is the playthrough requirements.
The playthrough requirement for the 20% bonus is 4 times the amount of the deposit plus the free play winnings. The playthrough requirement for the 15% bonus is 3 times the amount of the deposit plus the free play winnings. The playthrough requirement for the 10% bonus is 2 times the amount of the deposit plus the free play winnings.
The maximum bonus is the other major difference between these three bonuses. If you claim the 20% bonus, your maximum bonus will be $100 in free play. If you claim the 15% bonus, your maximum bonus will be $75 in free play. If you claim the 10% bonus, your maximum bonus will be $50 in free play.
For those sports bettors who have some friends who want to get in on the action, BetPhoenix offers a referral bonus to help to motivate you to recruit them. As long as your account has been active for at least two weeks and you have not made a withdrawal in the last 30 days, then you are eligible to refer a friend and receive the 25% free play bonus.
The playthrough requirement for this bonus is 5 times the amount of money you win during the free play rounds.
This seems like a great deal, and we recommend taking advantage of this bonus, even if you only have just one friend who will sign up and deposit the minimum qualifying amount of $200.
If the live casino is your ideal way to spend the time gambling, then you will be happy to know that BetPhoenix is offering a total of four different bonuses to choose from!
Below we will go through exactly what each one entails, since it is important to understand the whole picture before you make a decision.
Sign-Up Bonus #1
The first Sign-Up Bonus, which uses the bonus code NLC150, features a 150% bonus for any deposit of up to $250. You will only be able to play live baccarat and live blackjack if you want to clear this bonus. However, each wager on these games will only contribute 20% towards clearing the bonus.
It is a little disappointing to see that the playthrough requirements are 39 times and the maximum withdrawal is 2 times your deposit. None of the bonus money is available for withdrawal either, which makes this bonus pretty silly.
Sign-Up Bonus #2
This bonus is exactly like the first Sign-Up Bonus, except that the bonus is slightly higher at 175%. Unfortunately, with this higher bonus also comes a higher deposit requirement.
In order to be eligible for this bonus, you need to deposit somewhere between $251 and $500 using the bonus code NLC175.
Reload Bonus #1
Those players who love live casino games but have already cleared their Sign-Up Bonus will be happy to know that this reload bonus exists. If you deposit using the code RLC125 and deposit between $100 and $250, you will be eligible for this 125% Reload Bonus.
However, this bonus has the same bogus conditions as the live casino Sign-Up Bonuses did. This means that your withdrawal is capped at 2 times your deposit, while the bonus money is not possible to withdraw at any point, even after you clear it.
Reload Bonus #2
The second Reload Bonus is much like the first one except that the bonus is increased to 150% and the required deposit range is increased to $251-$500. The bonus code for this second Reload Bonus is RLC150.
The playthrough requirement of 36 times the amount of deposit plus the bonus is too difficult to clear, and the contribution percentage from the two games you are allowed to play is only 20%.
Just stay away from these live casino bonuses at all costs, because they are of very little value for the hassle they require.
If casino games are your preferred method of gambling, then you probably will be interested to know that there is a whopping 500% Sign-Up Bonus on BetPhoenix Casino. However, if you were planning on playing craps, roulette, or dice games then you will be out of luck, since those are not allowed to be played while clearing this bonus.
This means that you can claim up to $1,500 in bonus money, which is rather huge.
The playthrough requirement for this bonus is 35 times the amount of the deposit plus the bonus. This means that if you deposit $300 and receive the maximum $1,500 bonus, you will need to wager $63,000.
This is quite a large requirement for a $300 deposit, especially when the most a game contributes toward this wagering goal is 50%.
Do not claim this deposit bonus unless you have a TON of time to dedicate towards clearing it. This is one of the most absurd and difficult playthrough requirements that we have ever seen after years of doing casino reviews.
For casino players who have already taken advantage of the Casino Welcome Bonus and cleared it, there exists the option of making another deposit and claiming a Reload Bonus. There are three different types of reload bonuses to choose from that are involved with the casino portion of BetPhoenix.
You will be able to choose one of these options each time you make a deposit using the relevant bonus code. However, it is important to know that none of the bonus money from these reload bonuses is available for withdrawal.
Any profits from these reload bonuses come with a withdrawal limit of 4 times the amount you deposited.
It is also pertinent to note that only 50% of video poker or poker games will count towards the 35 times playthrough requirements, as well as 20% of blackjack or baccarat wagers. Just like in the Casino Welcome Bonuses, playing craps, roulette or dice games is not permitted during the bonus period.
Casino Reload Bonus #1
The first option for your Casino Reload Bonus is a 150% bonus on any deposit between $100 and $250 by using the code RLD150. This means that the maximum bonus that is achievable is $375. If you wish to clear this maximum bonus of $375, you will need to wager $21,875 which is MUCH more reasonable than the Casino Welcome Bonus.
Casino Reload Bonus #2
The second option for your Casino Reload Bonus is a 200% bonus on any deposit between $251 and $500 by using the bonus code RLD200. This means that the maximum bonus that is achievable is $1,000. If you wish to clear this maximum bonus of $1,000, you will need to wager $52,500.
Casino Reload Bonus #3
The third option for your Casino Reload Bonus is a 300% bonus on any deposit between $501 and $1,000 by using the bonus code RLD300. This means that the maximum bonus that is achievable is $3,000.
If you wish to clear this maximum bonus of $3,000, you will need to bet an outlandish total of $140,000, so we recommend avoiding this one.
If you are a casino player who already knows that you will be focusing exclusively on slot games, then these deposit bonuses are right up your alley. There are three different slot bonuses to choose from and no other casino games will count towards clearing them.
It is a bummer that the bonus money from these promotions is not available for withdrawal, and it is also a shame that the playthrough requirements for these bonuses are so difficult. This is because they make the playthrough multiplier apply to the bonus amount, which is rather large in these instances.
Any money won while claiming these slot bonuses will have a withdrawal limit of 4 times your original deposit. This makes it hard to get excited about playing, but if you are an avid slot gamer you will still enjoy these promotions.
Slots Deposit Bonus #1
The first option for your Slots Deposit Bonus is a 350% bonus on any deposit between $100 and $250 by using the bonus code SLTRLD350. This means that the maximum bonus that is achievable is $875.
Since the playthrough requirements are 30 times the amount of the deposit plus the bonus, if you wish to clear this maximum bonus of $875, you will need to wager exactly $33,750.
Slots Deposit Bonus #2
The second option for your Slots Deposit Bonus is a 500% bonus on any deposit between $251 and $500 by using the bonus code SLTRLD500. This means that the maximum bonus that is possible is $2,500. In order to clear this maximum bonus of $2,500, you will need to bet a total of $105,000.
Slots Deposit Bonus #3
The third option for your Slots Deposit Bonus is a 600% bonus on any deposit between $501 and $1000 by using the bonus code SLTRLD600. This means that the maximum bonus that is claimable is $6000.
In order to clear this maximum bonus of $6,000, you will need to bet an absurd total of $245,000. This bonus should be avoided at all costs unless you have so much time and money on your hands that you don’t know what to do with them.
If you have friends who love to play casino games just like you do, then you will not want to miss out on this friendly Casino Referral Bonus. If your friend or friends sign up using the promo code CREF, then you will receive a bonus worth 200% what they deposited.
As you can probably guess, this bonus has a cap, which is set at $200. Once you receive this bonus money you will be able to withdraw it after completing the playthrough requirements of 20 times the amount of the bonus.
However, withdrawals are capped at 2 times the amount of your bonus, which is pretty tough to get excited about.
One of the most exciting and convenient ways to make bets on the internet is by using your mobile phone, and BetPhoenix appears to be well aware of this fact. That is why they chose to offer a mobile option for both the sportsbook and the casino portions of their site.
Well, luckily for you BetPhoenix offers a non-downloadable mobile option. All you need to do is go to your web browser, visit http://mb.betphoenix.ag and then log in with your account information. You will have access to all of the sports bets that a computer user would have access to, and most of the casino games.
If you are looking to get ahold of the customer support team on BetPhoenix, you are in luck, because there is a boatload of methods that you can use to do so.
Most sites offer 24-hour support, so this brings them down a notch in our book.
The quickest method that you can use to contact the BetPhoenix customer support team is known as live chat. You can access this feature by simply clicking on the blue and white “Live Help” button in the lower-left corner of their homepage.
When we tested out this live chat feature, we were pleased to find that we were talking with a support representative within 10 seconds. This speed is unmatchable by other contact methods, so we recommend using live chat as your first choice.
If for some reason live chat does not work out for you, you can try to email them or give them a call. Below we have listed the many numbers and email addresses that they list on their contact page, and you can choose one according to which language you speak or what issue you are having:
For some reason, they claim to offer support in Spanish but they do not list a support number for Spanish-speaking players.
We recommend just calling the English support line, since that is the closest language to Spanish and they can try to transfer you to the correct person.
BetPhoenix is a great all-in-one type of gambling site that offers 36 quality casino games along with a racebook and a sportsbook. Their website appears to have a lot of effort put into it, due to its high level of organization and aesthetics.
If we were going to try and give BetPhoenix advice on how they could improve, we would tell them to add a few more banking options, and put some more variety into their promotions program.
However, these are minor issues, and when you look at the big picture, it is easy to see that BetPhoenix is a stellar place to gamble online.
