Launching in the tail-end of 2019, BetWarrior is one of the newest upstarts in the highly-competitive industry of online betting. While nothing is guaranteed in this industry, the platform’s future certainly looks promising.
To differentiate itself against other bookmakers, BetWarrior went all-on on mobile. Thus far, it has succeeded in that respect as its betting experience is especially crisp on a mobile device.
Pros & Cons
Absolutely massive soccer selection in the sportsbook
Casino stock-piled with hundreds of games
Mobile-first betting experience
Still not widely available throughout the world
Verify Through Text Message
BetWarrior’s registration is par for the course. It’ll ask for basic account details such as name, email, password, country, phone number, etc. Be sure to use a valid phone number that can receive text messages. BetWarrior will send a code to said number, which you’ll need to enter to officially activate your account.
Matched By The Dollar
Here again, the sign-up bonus offered by BetWarrior varies slightly from country to country. But the most-common promo seems to be a 100-percent match, which is tough to find fault with. Bonuses aren’t a big part of BetWarrior’s strategy as of yet, so getting a dollar-for-dollar match right off the bat isn’t something to overlook.
One of BetWarrior’s biggest selling points is personalization. That means a bettor in Brazil, for example, will have their betting experience tailored to their region and it’ll vary for someone in, say, Paraguay. You definitely see that with the supported banking methods. Options will vary between each country.
Nonetheless, BetWarrior mostly supports bank transfers and e-wallets like AstroPay Card, ecoPayz, Interac, Skrill, and a few more. Presently, debit cards are accepted for users in Mexico only.
At the moment, cryptocurrencies are notable omissions from BetWarrior’s deposit methods. It’s a bummer, but you also can’t expect every single feature to be carried by BetWarrior at first. You’ll notice this trend in other areas, too, which we’ll cover as we go along in this review.
Solid BetWarrior Help Desk
Kudos to BetWarrior for maintaining and updating a help desk section. There’s a series of articles here to troubleshoot a wealth of issues — technical, banking, responsible gaming, etc. In the event you do need to contact an actual person, BetWarrior does have a submit-a-ticket system. No live chat or telephone service currently exists, which is a bummer for those that need an immediate response.
Placing a Bet
Simple And Easy
BetWarrior doesn’t complicate the betting process at all. For one, its user interface is incredibly user-friendly and more modern-looking than most competitors. Two, finding and placing a wager is straight-to-the-point. Click into any betting line to add it to your betting slip. Next, type in how much you want to risk and BetWarrior will auto-generate the potential winnings. Finalize the wager by hitting on the big orange button and you’re locked in.
Whereas most online bookies keep its politics menu reserved for United States affairs, BetWarrior does not. On top of the US, we noticed odds for elections held in the United Kingdom, Australia, and Norway of all places. Though, politics in Latin America — where BetWarrior’s core users hail from — are nowhere to be found.
No Sports Games
Video game titles you’ll find for wagering on BetWarrior include Counter-Strike, DOTA, League of Legends, Rainbow 6, and Starcraft. Popular sports franchises such as FIFA or NBA 2K are absent from the selection, however.
Virtual Sports Betting
Not at BetWarrior
Sports simulations are not part of the menu at BetWarrior. As the site expands into Europe, we could see it being added since virtual sports are especially popular in the continent.
BetWarrior’s basketball menu isn’t just reserved for the NBA. Foreign leagues, NCAA hoops, and the WNBA are also bettable. But of course, the NBA gets the most action of the bunch. Unlike the NFL or MLB, BetWarrior’s NBA prop selection isn’t nearly as lacking. You’ll find markets for many teams and individual players.
Major Tournaments and More
Tennis has a substantial presence on BetWarrior. Competitions from across continents are easy to find for wagering on BetWarrior. Of course, that includes the Grand Slam events — the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and the US Open. There’s a submenu in its sportsbook menu just for those tournaments, which should tell you how expansive its betting coverage is while they’re ongoing.
No need to mince words here, but football is a clear afterthought at BetWarrior. While you’ll find game lines for most NFL and NCAA matchups, that’s about all that’s offered. This may disappoint bettors that are looking for a long list of props and futures, which is mostly absent at BetWarrior.
Much of what we said about the NFL also applies to MLB at BetWarrior. The selection is largely bare-bones. Sure, there’s pregame lines for every game. However, that will likely become dry over the course of a 162-game season. Props are a great way to break up that monotony of baseball betting, but they are few and far between at BetWarrior.
More Betting Options
Soccer Reigns Supreme
As a bookmaker that primarily caters to Latin American bettors, is anyone surprised that “futbol” is the most-supported sport on BetWarrior? No? We didn’t think so. Indeed, soccer betting lines are commonplace on the platform. In fact, it might be one of the deepest catalogs in the whole marketplace.
Hundreds of Games
Between the classic and live dealer casino, BetWarrior offers well over 200 games on its site. Not surprisingly, slot machines make up the majority of its listing. Nonetheless, table games are abundant, too. You’ll find all the classic staples such as blackjack, baccarat, poker, and roulette.
BetWarrior doesn’t have a dedicated poker room at the moment, but the popular card game is available in simulated or live dealer form. Between the two, there are 14 different poker games to play in multiple variants like Carribean, three-card, and more.
Growing Selection Of Matchups
Up on the main menu, you’ll see a tab titled “live” that will house every in-play wager available. It’ll list only games taking place that day, however. There is no calendar or schedule that points out what upcoming games will have live odds, which is a definitely a drawback. Nonetheless, BetWarrior does carry in-play betting for a wide-range of sports and leagues.
Accumulate The Games, Accumulate The Pay
If you want to lay a parlay on BetWarrior, just add at least two betting lines to the betting slip. Make sure “accumulator” is toggled in the slip instead of “singles.” Enter your risk amount and confirm the bet. It’s as easy as that — now only if hitting multi-leg parlays was that simple!
Varies by Country Again
Not unlike deposit methods, how you can cashout will differ from country to country. However, we did notice, by and large, withdrawal methods are more numbered. It’s mostly limited to bank transfers or e-wallets like MuchBetter or ecoPayz.
In terms of withdrawal limits, the max that can be cashed out during a whole calendar year is $30,000 (or the equivalent of that by the selected currency). Most withdrawals are processed within 48 hours of it being requested.
Additional Betting Help
The blog & other betting resources
Surely, creating and maintaining a blog is a low on the priority list when you’re a brand-new bookie. There’s no such thing on BetWarrior currently, but we wouldn’t rule it out down the line. For the time being, any wagering advice will need to come courtesy of other resources.
Bonuses are Lacking
Deals are not all that common at BetWarrior. Sure, there’s a promotions page, but no bonuses actually exist. On said page, BetWarrior urges you to download its native app and enter weekly tournaments in its casino — not true promos. The site is still in its infancy so we can’t say this will remain the case when it grows, but for now, don’t expect much bargains from the site.
Receiving a message in your email inbox from BetWarrior is actually quite rare. Perhaps that’s because of its lack of promos, which is what most online sportsbooks email about anyway.
Missing In Action
There is no ability to live stream games at BetWarrior. We’d give them a pass cause they’re new, but it’s a feature that’s actually missing at most betting sites. If BetWarrior were to ever offer live viewing, it could possibly catapult them in a hurry.
A Promising Start
Certainly, BetWarrior has a long way to go to make a noticeable dent in this industry. However, we’re optimistic about its future. Once it can increase its foothold in more countries and continents, BetWarrior has a real chance to disrupt the sector with stand-up features like:

A solid sportsbook. It’s probably worth checking out the others as well.
