Located in San Jose, Costa Rica, v-wager.com has established itself as one of the most secure and legitimate online sportsbooks by also being a member of the Costa Rican Chamber of Commerce. With v-wager.com, customers can bet online without any fear of fraud: The company offers payouts 7 days a week, and the sportsbook is fully insured by the Swiss American Bank. The v-wager.com website is dedicated to all types of online wagering. Although the company offers a full service sportsbook website, it also offers an online racebook, casino, bingo, poker and an intra-game section. The intra-game option is one of the most interesting aspects of v-wager.com. With this option, clients are able to wager using a person-to-person sports trading model. In other words, customers are able to make sports trades directly with each other.
The website is quite user-friendly, with the exception of an extremely small font size, which makes it slightly difficult for clients to find important information among the various links. A Wagering FAQ’s column, however, explains all there is to know about online wagering. Questions addressed range from general questions such as the rules and regulations of online wagering, to specific sports wager questions, such as how lines and odds are created. Furthermore, the website clearly outlines the company’s rules and regulations, as well as both online betting limits and phone betting limits for each sport offered.
Instead of having separate sections for deposit/withdrawal methods and promotions/bonuses, the company cleverly groups all these options under one clear tab: Accounting. In this way, all monetary concerns are addressed together. Furthermore, deposit and withdrawal methods are explained in great detail on the website, and each method has its own explanatory section. The recommended deposit and withdrawal method is NETeller, as it facilitates same day payouts. Clients are also able to choose from a variety of traditional deposit methods such as credit cards, bank wires, electronic transfers and cash deposits. Although NETeller has a fee of approximately $2 dollars per transaction, v-wager.com covers transaction fees for deposits exceeding $200. For withdrawals, however, the company only covers a single transaction fee per thirty days.
The sports covered by V-Wager include US staples, such as basketball, football, and hockey, as well as international favorites, including tennis and golf. Signing up and funding your account is easy enough, but for those needing further assistance, 24-hour customer support is available via phone or email. An online “Live-Help” feature was in the works, but not yet launched, at the time of this writing.
All in all, v-wager.com is a comprehensive, secure and reliable sportsbook. With a less-than-simple UI, the site appears to target more experienced wagerers rather than customers who are trying online betting for the first time. Nevertheless, V-wager is a good choice for those seeking a secure, reliable and fast service, backed by thousands of users and a reputable name.
