Initially starting off in the mid 1990’s as First Fidelity, this old-school sportsbook later became YouWager and took their first online bet in 1999. Being online 20+ years is a good indicator YouWager is a safe, reliable website for any sports betting enthusiast, whether you consider yourself to be of wise-guy stature, or a recreational player you’re welcome to play there.

Customer Service

Behind the excitement of sports betting, the sights and sounds of the casino games, and the thrill of poker, lies the customer service group. They might not be as exciting as the tinsel and glamour of the wager, but they are far more valuable.

With YouWager you can trust that it will. Courteous, polite, personal will assist you in a speedy and professional manner. You won’t be on hold, and you won’t be transferred from representative to representative. YouWager has more ways to contact them than most sportsbooks we've come across.
