About Compare.bet

Helping you on your online gambling journey

About Compare.bet

Compare.bet US is an online gambling comparison site. We launched in October 2018 as BettingUS.com, with the goal of becoming the go-to source of news and content for sports betting in the US market. In December 2019 BettingUS.com was rebranded to Compare.bet US. We’ll be bringing you the latest news and updates on all things sports betting, as well as guides and reviews to help you navigate the world of sports betting in the USA.

While Compare.bet might be new to the gambling scene, the team behind it isn’t. We have years of experience in the online gambling industry, and as such, have a vast knowledge of online casinos, bingo sites, sportsbooks and esports betting sites. This allows us to stay ahead of the curve on all things gambling, from the latest casino launches to brand new betting bonuses and everything else in between.

Our team works hard to make sure our users have everything they need when it’s time to compare our recommended providers. Compare.bet is jam-packed with expert, unbiased reviews of hundreds of top esports bookies, sportsbooks, casinos and more, as well as a number of guides that walk through the trickier parts of playing at online gambling sites. We’re confident that our detailed reviews and guides can help users make quicker, easier and better informed decisions when choosing your favourite places to gamble online.

Most importantly, we’re sure that our decision to only recommend the very best licensed sites means that you can expect a safe and fair environment right from the minute you sign up, whether you’re betting on sports or playing online blackjack. Our dedication to responsible gambling doesn’t end here. Check out our responsible gambling page for more information on how to avoid the potential pitfalls of wagering at gambling sites and links to organisations working hard to combat problem gambling and provide guidance for those who are concerned about their gambling habits.

How we make money

To keep our service free for users, we are paid a commission by some gambling operators when a new customer joins via our site. This commission doesn’t affect your playing experience in any way, and helps us maintain a dedicated, expert team, focused on adding new comparison features, accurate operator research and helpful guides, features, news and stories.

Good causes

As a prominent player in the online gambling sector, we have a responsibility to ensure players are protected. As part of this, we make regular donations to Gamble Aware, and provide support to the UK’s Responsible Gambling Week campaign annually.
