November Payout Report
Payout Report Overview

With the month of November in the bag, we’re all looking ahead to a fantastic December, and of course Christmas and the holiday season. It will only be that much more enjoyable if we can profit with our online poker and betting, too, which makes our monthly gambling industry payout report as important as ever.

There is nothing quite as sweet as winning big on an online gambling site, and then cashing out just in time for Christmas. Our hope is that’s precisely what you do this month, but if you’re playing on some of the top betting sites we focus on each month, you’ll probably want to know with withdrawal methods work best, and more importantly, which are the fastest.

That’s why we continue our look at some of the best online gambling sites out there, and how they fair when it comes to getting you your winnings. Every online gambling site we monitor gets a grade, while we also provide as much information and updates as we can that hopefully give you an idea of any site issues, or what is specifically working best with each site.

Into those grades goes site payout speed, success rate and any other ongoing issues or positive/negative reports.

The gambling sites we list tend to have a great history of putting forth a top notch product and offering a wide array of gaming and payout options. They’ve also usually all done well to complete any past complaints and also are among the best payouts in the world.

Let’s see which sites grade out the best for the month of November:

October Grade: A+ November Grade: A+

One of the elite sportsbooks going today, BetOnline has a ton to offer, both in regards to payment processing and customer experience. The site offers a litany of payment and withdrawal methods and is routinely regarded as one of the most secure gambling sites to use online.

BetOnline, being an extremely popular online sportsbook, naturally allows users to place sports bets ranging from a wide variety, and also offers online casinos and poker games.

“We’ll get you your money faster than anyone else”
  • BetOnline continues to earn our best grade, as they have a ton to offer, both via betting and payout methods.
  • The top payout method – as with most gambling sites – is still going to be BitCoin, which is quite fast. While BitCoin can go much faster, BetOnline is currently reporting a 48 hour window for BitCoin withdrawals.
  • Checks can be touch and go, with mailed checks causing large delays (up to a month), courier checks taking up to two weeks and express checks coming in around a week.
  • You’d have better luck using cash transfer than checks, as it takes only five business days.

    For the most part, BitCoin is crushing it at BetOnline and if you really need to, you can consider express checks. We’d stick with BitCoin if at all possible, however.

  • We noticed some complaints about BetOnline concerning the use of credit cards and withdrawals after winning on free rolls, all of which stem from October of this year. It’s the only dirt we can find, however, and it seems to be fairly circumstantial, as credit and debit cards are not the best for withdrawals (as we’ve learned for months now) and most sites require you to play a certain amount with any free cash earnings.
  • Based on this, we aren’t seeing anything concrete to bring BetOnline’s payout grade down. They still offer a ton of payout options, they’re a great place to play and they remain perfectly trustworthy and reliable. Just make sure you use BitCoin, if you can help it.

Bovada Logo


October Grade: A November Grade: A+
Bovada is one of the more popular online gambling sites to be found on the web, as they offer a wide range of sports betting opportunities and were one of the more trusted poker sites online. Unfortunately Bovada has left the poker scene, which is officially effective at the end of September. They’re directing their players to Ignition Casino, a new online gambling website that uses the same platform and is also a trusted company.

While Bovada poker is no more, they still provide fantastic sports betting options and will also still be offering online casino games. They remain one of the most trustworthy online betting sites, but you’ll obviously have to get your online poker fix elsewhere going forward.

“Raise Your Game”
  • Bovada’s quality payout speeds from October leaked into November, as the feedback has largely been positive, yet again.
  • Bitcoin continues to dominate at Bovada, with one user reporting a 16 hour turnaround and others detailing payouts within the regular 24 hour waiting period.
  • Numerous reports over at popular poker forum 2+2 suggest Bitcoin is far and away the choice for withdrawal at Bovada – a sentiment we’ve been preaching now for months.
  • The only clear issue with Bitcoin withdrawals in November appears to be an erratic (and mild) delay, with Bovada siting a large amount of payout requests.
  • While BC is far and away the top payout method we suggest at Bovada, checks remain a tried and true withdrawal staple (one user reported a solid 9-day turnaround). Luckily Bovada’s check speeds have no bad reports, although like most every other payout method, they’re not preferred to BC.
  • There was only one negative Bitcoin review, with one user claiming to still be waiting on funds after 17 days. No update was provided, but all other BC reports at Bovada have been glowing – both in speed and success.
  • One issue Bovada is having apart from the payout angle is some users are having trouble migrating/connecting their accounts to Ignition, where Bovada moved it’s online poker department. It’s only popped up a few times, but is something to consider for current Bovada users. New users shouldn’t be impacted, however.
  • Overall, there isn’t anything bad to report on Bovada. They shed their online poker room months ago and have actually seen their payout speed and success improve ever since. Again, Bitcoin is the way to go, and that’s really all we’re seeing being reported on for the most part.

Bookmaker.eu Logo


October Grade: A November Grade: A+

If you’re looking for a new online sportsbook you can trust, Bookmaker.eu isn’t a bad place to start. Without a doubt one of the best sportsbooks around, Bookmaker has made their name with stellar service, an excellent website and speedy payments for over 30 years.

Bookmaker isn’t just about longevity or trend-setting, however, as they also offer an eclectic gaming base, allowing their customers to place bets on a variety of sports, as well as dive into online casinos and poker rooms. In addition, Bookmaker continues to offer severe discounts on initial deposits and has one of the best histories you’ll find from a gambling site online:

“Where the Line Originates”
  • Bookmaker is one of the most tried and true online gambling sites you’ll find, and we won’t stop saying it.
  • Fortunately we have some new updates, as SBR requested it’s users to come forth with payout speeds and they obliged.
  • That’s just one area where we can see that once again, BitCoin is alive and well. Over at Bookmaker there is one report of an extremely fast 7-8 hour payout. User gadawgs787 suggested taking your money out at Bookmaker in the middle of the week when they’re aren’t a ton of sporting events bogging the site down.
  • There were also multiple reports stemming from earlier in November, ranging from 7-10 hours. Needless to say, BitCoin is dominating in the payout department at Bookmaker.
  • Unfortunately the only withdrawal info we have found for Bookmaker has been via BitCoin. It’s certainly the preferred option by Bookmaker site members and it’s the one we’re backing just about everywhere.
  • That being said, Neteller is probably their best secondary option and it can go through within 1-3 days.

Slots.lv Logo


October Grade: A November Grade: A

Slots.lv is still quite fresh to the online casino realm, having only just started taking bets in 2013. Despite its youth, Slots.lv still has loads to offer, starting with a plethora of card and lot games, as well as killer payouts, bonuses and promotions.

The only real complaints at Slots.lv tend to deal with some games that lag or insane bonuses that feel to be out of reach. The games rarely disappoint and there have been few issues with processing payouts safely and quickly, however.

“Fastest Payouts in North America!”
  • Slots.lv has done well to pick up from what was a touch and go summer, as they’ve rebounded from some poor payout grades to become one of the better sites to play on.
  • There have still been some mild delays, of course, with one user at 2+2 forums reporting a wait of over 72 hours. The payout method wasn’t detailed, however, and another user correctly pointed out that the $2,500 withdrawal being discussed could take longer because of the payout size.
  • Fortunately this same user updated their complaint with a speedy payout following a discussion with Slots.lv customer service. It looks like they used an e-wallet and the main issue was the size of the withdrawal.
  • They also had several complaints over at AskGamblers, but the two most recent posts are nothing but positive.
  • Two different users praised Slots.lv’s payout speed, with one citing BitCoin as the preferred payout route (72 hours).
  • While BitCoin is still being screamed from the mountain tops at every site, you can still safely use checks, bank wire, rapid transfer or credit card at Slots.lv.
  • Most of their payout methods take up to a week, while checks probably rank second to BitCoin currently (roughly 4-7 days).
  • As we’ve touched on before, we note the complaints and “scam!” protests, but speed has been the problem in the past, not success, necessarily. Slots.lv has lately made good on successful payouts and with improved speeds being reported, we see no reason to drop their grade for the month of November.
  • On top of the promising payout updates, this site is awesome, with tons of killer games and sweet bonuses. It’s certainly one of our favorites of the list we profile each month.

Planet 7 Casino Logo

Planet 7

October Grade: C- November Grade: B

Planet 7 is the toughest online casino to grasp on this list, simply because they have such an awesome array of slick games, but have had a checkered payout history. While there have been numerous complaints through the years, few users have had problems with the actual games themselves and most complaints end up getting resolved, thanks to a hard-working and dedicated Planet 7 crew.

Plant 7 still has some work to do with staying on top of big payouts, but they’ve gotten better and continue to be near the top of the list when it comes to gaming atmosphere and versatility.

“Your source for the best Vegas online casino action”
  • Planet 7 continues to take some heat for bad payout delays and overall poor speeds. There are more complaints in November over at Ask Gamblers.
  • U.S. players continue to be strapped down by limited payout methods, which are check, bank wire and cash transfer.
  • Most of this methods are supposed to take about 7 business days, but the process of payout approval has been an ongoing issue for Planet 7 and it’s users.
  • There isn’t a clear winner here, as some successful payouts have reportedly taken months, and as you can see on AG, there are some still in delay.
  • The bottom line here is that Planet 7 nails everything except for two things: payout methods and speeds.
  • That’s kind of a big deal for us, but what is nice is we still see a lot of positive feedback for the site and experience, while most everyone still ends up getting paid.
  • Due to some added complaints, we’re dropping Planet 7’s payout grade for November and hopefully they’ll experience some improvement in December.

Las Vegas USA Logo

Las Vegas USA

October Grade: B- November Grade: C+

Las Vegas USA is another fantastic online casino, as they’re powered by a fantastic platform and welcome U.S. players with a thrilling (and safe) experience. Las Vegas USA also brings huge bonuses to the table for new players and strives to go out of its way to assist users with any issues via customer support. That elite customer service hasn’t completely killed some inconsistent payout speeds, but they do their best to resolve any standing issues.

“Join the excitement”
  • The wait continues with Las Vegas USA, which really has proven to be an awesome site with a litany of games and bonuses, but simply makes it’s players wait to get their cash.
  • A recent November complaint on AskGamblers.com details how brutal the waiting game can be. There were two additional complaints of long delays on the site.
  • This isn’t new, however. We’ve seen user after user complain about delays and slow payout speeds, but largely, everyone seems to eventually get their winnings.
  • Payout method has had a lot to do with it, as bank transfers have not worked well at all.
  • E-wallets and checks seem to work the best, as they can get sent out as quickly as 48 hours. Both tend to take much longer, as Las Vegas USA certainly has some speed issues, and that can mean a wait of 1-2 weeks.
  • Unfortunately, Las Vegas USA hasn’t had any success in expediting their slow payouts. The games, site and bonuses all rock, and as you’ll see, most users stick through the pains of long delays because they love the site and usually they still get their cash. We’re downgrading the site by a hair, however, as November saw an uptick in complaints and the payout speed simply needs to be better.

RealBet Logo


October Grade: C+ November Grade: C+

RealBet is still quite young, having gone live only in 2015, but has quickly garnered praise and trust in the online gambling community. RealBet brings supreme versatility to the table, offering online sports betting, a casino and unique mobile capabilities.

Real Bet also raises the bar with one of the freshest interfaces on the web, along with quality gaming and some of the best customer support you will find. Their best asset, of course, may be their outstanding payout results, as they’ve consistently produced some of the fastest payments. They do have some payout options that sap users with extra fees, but they do provide one free payout per month and typically receive fantastic feedback.

  • The story with RealBet remains the same. They’re young and the reports on payout speeds have garnered mixed results. We still don’t like what stems from back this summer over at SBR, but this is the only negative feedback we’ve seen about a site that is still only two years old.
  • Dealing with various processors and not having an eclectic base of payout methods certainly is holding RealBet back in our mind, but it is still a nice place to play, overall.
  • RealBet still offers a 7-10 day turnaround on most withdrawals, with check and debit/credit card available for use.
  • The site itself plugged Check by Courier when we touched base with them (15 to 20 business days) and suggested they will be looking at adding more options in the future.
  • Like we’ve been saying, we don’t ever like to hear customer complaints (especially lingering ones that may not be resolved) and RealBet absolutely has some work to do with their payout options and customer service. That being said, they get a mulligan still, as they haven’t been around very long and they’ve admitted their mistakes and plan on improving, all around.

Hopefully our monthly recap finds you enjoying speedy and successful payouts.
