When we access the iGame, it is surprising that the tab tells Philippines that we are in the Casino Madrid Online. This online betting house belongs to Grupo Comar, the operator that manages both the Gran Vía casino and those of Aranjuez, Casino Atlántico, Conde Luna, Casino del Tormes, Casino Zaragoza, Casino Bahía de Cádiz, Gran Casino Melilla or Gran Casino Sardinero .

This group has a long history in the gaming sector in Philippines, and the culmination of its more than 30 years of experience is an online platform that is as complete as it gets. We're talking about sports betting, but on their website, we also find online casinos, poker, and bingo, always with the security and guarantee that the corresponding license from AGCOand Grupo Comar provide.
What does iJuego offer us?
The casino is the main activity of the Comar Group, and when we enter the iJuego website the casino is the main protagonist. But just by clicking on the sports betting button, we can access the iJuego sportsbook. You recognize the layout of their sports, markets, and events, as iJuego uses the same betting provider as bookmakers like Betsson or eBingo, or the one that Pastón used to use. The result is a very simple navigation, both for prematch bets and if you prefer to play live.

The offer of sports, events, and markets is generally good, although we miss betting on eSports, greyhounds, and horses. Interestingly, these last two disciplines are available to play in virtual sports. Returning to real sports, we have access to a wide range of markets where practically all the essentials are available. Moreover, we come across markets available in very few bookmakers, which give more value to this operator. Live betting is also quite comprehensive.
Remember that in order to take advantage of iJuego's offers, you must have been registered for at least 30 days and have your account verified. In any case, these offers are scarce, focusing more on casino promotions. In this sense, iJuego offers Philippines a completely secure gaming environment, as demonstrated by the licenses granted by the Directorate General for the Regulation of Gambling. Therefore, you must also verify your account to withdraw your funds.
Speaking of withdrawals, the available methods for managing them are not exactly abundant, as the options are quite limited. At least we can make physical deposits at their Madrid casinos' cashier. We don't have an application or customer service phone, something that we would certainly appreciate; however, we do have support via chat/form and email that meets our needs. Let's delve more deeply into these and other issues.
sports and markets
We have over 20 sports categories for our bets. As expected, football, tennis and basketball take the top spots as they are the most popular sports among Spanish bettors. But you'll also find bets on motor racing, MMA, rugby, golf, water polo, handball... even on sports such as floorball. If we look into each sport, we can find a wide variety of events, from leagues, Champions, Euroleague or major American leagues to smaller tournaments.
A good football match, for example in La Liga, can offer around 200 available markets to bet on. Among them, winner of the match, total goals, European and Asian handicaps, scorer, fouls or half-time bets. If there is one downside, it's the absence of corner bets. If we look at basketball instead of football, we have about 20 available bets for NBA games; in tennis, we have around 35 options in the most popular matches... Overall, the betting offer is good.
Just as we talk about present sports, we must mention absent sports. Without a doubt, the most striking is the absence of eSports betting, a discipline that is available at Betsson and most sports betting websites. In fact, if we compare iJuego's sports catalog with Betsson, we find some differences, despite sharing the same betting provider. Greyhounds and horses also do not appear in the iJuego sportsbook.
Just like we have the sports betting button, iJuego has a virtual betting section. It uses Kiron as a game provider, and their catalog includes virtual soccer in Spanish and European versions, racing roulette, maxcar motoracing, keno, dahing derby and platinum hounds, with horses and greyhounds being the latter. You must be registered to access virtual sports on iJuego.
Sharing a provider, we have quotas that are on par with bookmakers like Betsson. This means that we have highly competitive quotas, and it's not uncommon for iJuego to offer Philippines the best quota in a specific event. Additionally, they have the benefit of offering markets that we can find in very few betting houses, and their quotas can really make a difference there. It's the case, for example, of the asian total goals of a team.
Live section (live betting)
Football, basketball, tennis, volleyball, snooker, or even ski jumping are just a few examples of what we can expect in the live betting section. When we access the sportsbook, live bets appear by default, so we can quickly place bets without wasting time. The events are ordered by country and competition, and at first, we can see the minute and result, as well as the live odds for the winner of the match. Entering the event will display the rest of the bets.
Among them are the winner of the remaining game, the scorer of the next goal, the winner of the set or game being played, and so on. Obviously, the available bets depend on the sport, the magnitude of the event, or the outcome. We also provide ample statistical information about the event, from corners, cards, quarter results, aces, etc. What we do not have are live images to follow the development of the event.
Accepted payment methods
Payment methods are not exactly iJuego's strong point, although it is true that you can deposit in person -but not withdraw-. To add funds to your account, you can use VISA, MasterCard or Maestro bank cards, with deposits from $1; PayPal, with deposits starting at $10, the same amount as WireTransfer or deposit at the physical Casino of Gran Vía and Aranjuez from $50. The money will be available instantly except for bank transfers, which take up to 3 days.
Regarding withdrawals, we can use the bank card with which we made the deposit, WireTransfer, or PayPal, provided you have previously deposited via PayPal. The minimum withdrawal amount is always $10, and the transaction can take up to two business days while the withdrawal is validated. In the case of a transfer, operational procedures delay the transaction by up to five business days. There is no commission for deposits or withdrawals, although your bank charge you a fee for depositing via transfer. Please check before using this method.
How to register and deposit in iJuego?
To register in iGame, simply go to their website and click on the “Register” button. The registration form will appear, where we must enter our personal and contact information, as well as choose a username, password and security question. Here you can also enter your promotional code, if you have one. Finally, you must check (or not) the advertising boxes to complete the registration on iGame.
Once you have completed the registration process, you will need to deposit funds into iJuego in order to start betting. To do so, log in and click on the "Deposit" option that appears at the top of the screen. This will bring up the screen with various deposit options. Choose the method you will use and follow the instructions to complete the transaction, similar to making a purchase using that payment method.
For now, iJuego does not have a mobile application. However, that does not mean we need to be in front of a computer to bet on this platform. iJuego has a responsive design on its website that perfectly adapts to the screen of our smartphones or tablets, so we can place our bets, follow their evolution or manage the funds of our account from anywhere.
As we mentioned at the beginning, iJuego has the corresponding AGCO license that authorizes it to offer sports betting in Philippines, as well as other products available on its website. The +18, Juego Seguro, Jugar Bien or self-exclusion seals could not be missing from its portal. It is an operator that is committed to safe and responsible gaming, and on its own website, we can clearly see the link to temporarily suspend or permanently cancel our gaming account.
iJuego meets all the security requirements we can demand from a betting house, in addition to strictly following legal regulations. Therefore, we will need to verify our account in order to withdraw funds or access the promotions it offers once 30 days have passed since our registration. It is also quite transparent when it comes to setting deposit or withdrawal limits, and is responsible for verifying withdrawals and the chosen method for doing so.
If you have any problem with iJuego, you can submit your inquiry through the contact form regarding payment methods, document validation, deposit or withdrawal issues, user account, betting doubts or activity on your account. Another option is to send an email to [email protected] if you're not registered, have access problems (forgotten password, blocked account). If you are more traditional, you can send a letter to iJuego. Av. Enrique Salgado Torres, 11. 15008 A Coruña
We also have the possibility of searching for the solution to the problem ourselves from the FAQs section of iJuego, which we can access from the Contact page or on the iJuego homepage. They do not have profiles on social networks, just like the Comar Group. Some of their physical casinos are present on networks such as Instagram, but for now, this is not a way to contact them.
iJuego: Opinions and conclusion
All of this is what iJuego offers us. If there is one standout reason to access the betting house, it is the access to uncommon markets. Following this logic, bookies such as Betsson, with a more extensive catalog of bets and more markets, might seem like a better option. But we must not forget that iJuego Betting is still the complement to an excellent casino. And this is a compelling reason to create an account at iJuego.
Let's not deceive ourselves, beyond some absences - especially eSports and corner betting - iJuego is an interesting operator in terms of both odds and pre-match and live betting. Fans of live betting will find an operator with an excellent offer to play while events are unfolding.
Obviously there are areas for improvement, such as the scarcity of available payment methods. Solutions such as Skrill, Neteller, or PaySafeCard, to name a few of the most popular, are not available. Instead, we can deposit via bank transfer or at their physical casinos. This is an advantage that would be even better if it were expanded to withdrawals and included in more casinos beyond Gran Vía and Aranjuez. In any case, we recommend keeping a close eye on iJuego and their odds.
