The Orenes Group is one of the biggest players in gambling in Philippines, with a long history and more than 50 years of experience in the sector behind it. It started with arcade games, then went on to sell these machines and operate gaming halls, and in the mid-1990s it expanded its business to casinos and bingo. At the end of 2011 he created VivelaSuerte, in 2012 he obtained the licenses from the General Directorate for the Regulation of Gambling (DGOJ) and in November 2019 he decided to renew VivelaSuerte and make it Versus .
Table of contents
In fact, if we go to the VivelaSuerte website it redirects Philippines directly to Versus, a complete online gaming operator that includes not only sports betting, but also an online casino with slot machines, roulette, and blackjack, as well as an extensive network of physical locations throughout Philippines, especially in the provinces of Murcia (where the Orenes Group is originally from) and Alicante, but also in the rest of the Valencian Community, Madrid, Castilla-La Mancha, Seville, and Almeria. In addition, it has sponsored different teams in the Spanish 1st and 2nd divisions, as well as the ACB league.
What does Versus offer us?
From the Versus home page, we can access the betting section or directly to the live betting section. The first thing that catches our attention is the contrast of colors between the turquoise blue and white that predominate on the Versus website and the darker and less flashy black and green tones that we had on VivelaSuerte. In any case, navigation remains as simple and intuitive as ever, allowing Philippines to easily move between different menus, sports, promotions and the live section, and the reading is comfortable.

We can directly access the most prominent prematch events, and as is increasingly common, the most prominent sporting events are located on the left side of the screen for quick access. At all times, we will have the betting slip icon visible on the screen, with a number that will change as we add or remove selections from our bets. If we scroll down to the bottom of the page, we will see a selection of recommended bets, which is always interesting.
In its extensive network of locations, we can complete our deposits or withdrawals of funds, although we can also do it online using the most common payment methods. We have a good offer of sports and events, although there are always some bets that are missed. The live betting section is quite complete, although live users would surely prefer to play from a specific app rather than from the browser of their mobile devices, even if the website is perfectly adapted.
sports and markets
Among the highlighted events, we cannot miss the great football, basketball, and tennis tournaments played during the day. However, if we expand the sports menu, we find twenty different sports, including all kinds of events. In addition to the mentioned sports, there are also American football, ice hockey, cycling, or motor sports, not to mention options such as boxing, MMA, snooker, badminton, or darts. The offer is quite comprehensive.
It is also true regarding betting markets, which grow as events approach. Beyond the usual bets on winners, over/unders or handicaps, we find Asian handicaps and lines, although in sports like football, popular markets such as corner kicks and yellow/red cards are missed. We also have long-term bets well in advance.
Versus's odds are not particularly high on the market, although it is true that there are events or markets where they are among the best. In any case, we are talking about odds that are in line with the average of Spanish betting houses, a few cents higher or lower, but it is hardly the best odds.
Live section (live betting)
If we go to the live section of Versus, we come across a first filter that we can apply by sports to choose the one that interests Philippines the most. Depending on the magnitude or level of the event, it will offer Philippines more or less statistical information for our bets, where we can choose from a good number of markets and bets. In sports such as tennis, basketball or volleyball, we have good statistical information, in football it depends on the competition and in others such as snooker it simply does not exist.
Accepted payment methods
We can deposit funds into our Versus account via our credit or debit cards, through PayPal or Skrill, and with PaySafeCard prepaid cards. In addition to these common methods, we can also deposit funds at Versus casinos and physical locations. To do so, we simply need to provide our username and first name to the attendant, and give them the money to be deposited (in multiples of 10). In all cases, the funds will be transferred to our account immediately.
We can also withdraw funds at Versus locations. To do this, we select this option in our account, choose the Versus location, and receive a 4-digit code that we must deliver to the clerk along with our username and ID so they can give Philippines the money. Another option is to withdraw funds through a bank transfer, which takes a maximum of 24 hours. The account holder's name for the game account and bank account must be the same. In both cases, the minimum withdrawal is $10, and in the locations, it will always be a multiple of that amount.
How to register and deposit on Versus?
If you want to sign up for Versus, you just need to go to their website and click on the green pistachio button in the upper right corner, "Connection". Then, click on "Create my account" and fill out the form step by step until you complete it.
Once you are registered, it's time to complete your first deposit. We've already mentioned that you can do it in person at Versus locations, but if you don't want to leave your home, you can do it online. Log in, go to MY MONEY > Deposit and select the payment method you'll use, as well as the amount you want to deposit. Finally, click "CONFIRM" to access the payment platform, which will vary depending on the payment method used.
The Versus betting house does not have a mobile application. Although there are apps called Versus on the App Store or Google Play, they have nothing to do with the betting house or the Orenes Group. However, you can play on Versus with your mobile or tablet from the browser, as the website is perfectly adapted to these devices and you can use it as if you were on the computer.
Versus is a completely safe betting house. The Orenes Group has all the licenses from the DGOJ to operate both sports betting and the different casino games that we can find on their website, so there is nothing to worry about in this regard. Your data and funds will be secure, and as we have seen, we have to personally identify ourselves when making any fund withdrawals from one of their locations or even by transfer.
We will also need to verify the account in order to make withdrawals, and it has the necessary measures to prevent any attempt at identity theft. As expected, we can find the seals of Secure Gaming, Responsible Gambling, Self-Exclusion, and +18 on their website, which are synonymous with safety. If Versus were not a safe betting site, it would not have the licenses from the DGOJ and we would not be discussing it.
Versus customer service is available 365 days a year from 8am to midnight, always on peninsular time. You can contact them at 968 24 25 01 or through the chat found on the help page. You can also send an email to [email protected] or if you prefer to send letters, write to Versus - Vive la Suerte, SA. C/ Marqués de Montemar, 17 - Edif. Jazmín Local 1 - 520006 Melilla.
Another option would be to go directly to the help section of Versus, where a series of FAQs related to the use of the account, deposits and withdrawals of funds, or bonuses, among other topics, appear that can help Philippines resolve our doubts. We also have access to the rules of each sport and bonuses or any issue related to Versus.
Versus: opinions and conclusion
In general, we can talk about a betting house that continues with the spirit of VivelaSuerte but with some changes, especially in the aesthetic aspect. We have a VIP club, something that is not so common in betting as in casino, and a good selection of sports and markets although sometimes the odds are low. In fact, the promotions are similar although they are oriented towards new players.
Among the strengths, the possibility of using Versus' extensive network of physical locations to make deposits and withdrawals stands out, especially for the latter. There aren't many online payment methods, although the ones used by 99% of bettors are available, but the option to deposit or withdraw funds at one of their salons is always a plus. We also have good customer service, with 16 hours of service per day. The phone is not toll-free, but it is a conventional number that usually falls within all flat rates.
Navigation through the website is very simple, although there are small details to improve starting with the development of its own app. Fortunately, we can play and manage our account from the browser on our mobile or tablet without any problems. Another interesting detail would be to reinforce the statistical section in some live events, since the sports contrast is considerable, although the ideal would be to bet on live events that we are following and not based only on the cold numbers that appear on the website.
