‘You bet me?’ How a new generation of apps are combining social media and gambling

February 12th, 2014

Youbetme, another custom-bet facilitator based in the US, knows its market; suggested wagers include “who can make out with the hot girl at the bar?” with potential prizes including “10 shots of sambuca”.To sidestep the many regulatory problems, Youbetme doesn’t facilitate real-money betting; indeed, valueless virtual currencies are often used in social gaming as a benign alternative to the real thing. But perhaps it’s establishing social-gaming behaviours that’s the key to future business success; persuade us that something is fun now, prise real money out of us later.


Youbetme will turn you into a social better before the Superbowl

January 31st, 2014

Keeping track of all your casual bets while watching sports can be a pain in the ass, and handshakes don’t exactly guarantee your friends will pay up.New mobile betting startup YouBetMe thinks there’s plenty of room for improvement and thus is launching its service ahead of Sunday’s Superbowl game.The service, which we first saw way back at DEMO 2012, is basically a middle ground between shaking hands and going to a professional bookie that can give you odds and whatnot. Yet the app doesn’t handle any monetary transactions — that still happens directly between betters. “We think there’s a lot of potential in the storytelling of betting,” said Youbetme founder and CEO Jason Neubauer in an interview with VentureBeat.


Youbetme officially launches its social betting iPhone app in time for the Super Bowl

January 30th, 2014

You can bet real money in YouBetMe, but there’s no payment system in place in the app, so you’ll have to track your friends down to hard cash. Reneging on a bet will show up on your profile in the app, and founder Jason Neubauer said that the company hasn’t had any problems with users welching on their bets. The startup also plans to add a feature where you can have a third-party act as a witness for the bet in order to determine who wins. The app also includes an interesting SMS system where you can place bets by text message when you don’t have an Internet connection. “We’re taking betting back to its good name,” Neubauer said.


Can The Gambling Industry Ever Become A Force For Good?

January 15th, 2014

On the opposite coast, YouBetMe has recently released analysis of user behavior, which shows that people are interested in betting for social rewards, with over half of the bets made on its platform for beer wagers and a remarkable 18% for what are termed affection and sexual favours. Jason Neubauer CEO of YouBetMe says that betting between individuals is as socially bonding today as it used to be in bygone days.


Can Sports Betting Cash in on the Social Betting Boom?

December 11th, 2013

Silicon Valley based Social Bet Inc. Both have launched peer-to-peer social betting services, which as it suggests, enables gamblers to bet against each other as individuals rather than against a market of betting odds. YouBetMe by Social Bet Inc was the first social bet app to hit the stores. The company describes it as a mechanism for “virtual handshakes”, on anything from World Series predictions, a round of golf with a friend, Dancing with the Stars winners, the arrival of the next royal baby, or the outcome of a beer pong game.


November 1st, 2013

Life is full of broken promises. McDonald’s Dollar Menu? It’s now more than a dollar to get a stomachache! Though we can’t help you that problem, we can make sure people are held accountable for the bets they make with you … with Youbetme! Ensuring everyone thinks twice before “shaking on it,” Youbetme is the firs mobile social betting platform. Turning any event into a wager-able moment, the app makes it easy to choose a bet type—custom, sports or live Vegas odds—set terms and make losers pay up (or run naked laps, if those are the stakes). Bet on games, who will get booted from The Voice or whether or not your friend can snag a number at the bar! Keep stakes private or share ‘em with your ninety-bazillion Facebook friends. And did we mention it’s totally legal?! So while you may end up with a shaved head or less money, at least you won’t end up in jail!


Youbetme debuts first mobile-social betting platform

October 29th, 2013

Social Bet Inc launches Youbetme, the first comprehensive mobile-social betting platform designed to turn daily events into betable moments and capitalise on the consumer desire to bet on anything, anywhere, anytime. Youbetme supports the latest iOS versions, including iOS7, and soon Android mobile devices and tablets. Youbetme uses SMS or native iOS to enable friends to place friendly wagers, “virtual handshakes”, on anything from World Series predictions, a round of golf with a friend, Dancing with the Stars winners, the arrival of the next royal baby, or the outcome of a beer pong game.


Youbetme launches the first mobile social betting platform

October 23rd, 2013

Youbetme, the mobile social betting platform, is the first app of its kind to hit the Apple App Store as its creators Social Bet Inc. strive to make casual betting easier and more enjoyable. Despite the bad rap that gambling often gets in the public eye, there are very few people who never participate in one form of gambling or another. The twisted view of the bright lights of Las Vegas often belies the fact that people are betting on absolutely anything, which is a fact the creators of Youbetme are more than aware of.


March 15th, 2013

With the news of the InTrade meltdown still reverberating around the gambling halls, you would expect that start-ups like Youbetme would be wondering what the hell they have gotten themselves into? Not so according to Kent Bernhard Jr, from the Upstart Business Journal who has been speaking to the co-founder and CEO Jason Neubauer.


Youbetme founder ups the ante

March 11th, 2013

The fate of InTrade, the online gambling site that shut down late Sunday, doesn’t scare Jason Neubauer. The co-founder and CEO of YouBetMe is steaming forward with plans to launch his iOS app for social gambling next month, taking the label “beta” off his site and opening his community beyond the 5,000 who have been testing it. He thinks he can avoid the kind of trouble that befell InTrade (and Betcha before it) by avoiding any handling of money between people who use his site to bet with each other.


Bet against your friends with new social gambling app

October 28th, 2012

Youbetme is a social betting app that lets you place bets against your friends. Best of all, according to its founder, Jason Neubauer, it is completely legal. At the recent DEMO conference in Silicon Valley, Neubauer said that the possible problems with the service are just a sign that is a demand for it, “where there’s red flags there’s opportunity”. He went on to say that peer-to-peer betting is actually legal and “in no way, shape, or form are we doing anything other than letting people have fun.”


Youbetme: Far and away the best consumer mobile app launched at DEMO

October 8th, 2012

Another very well received launch was from Social Bet Inc. presenting their soon to be released app: You Bet Me. Far and away the best consumer mobile app launched at Demo, You Bet Me provides a platform to allow users to make bets with each other on sports, or really whatever you like. And if someone welches on a bet, well, their entire social network will know about it. My biggest concern about the app was more ethical than anything else, as it is an app that encourages and makes gambling easier.


One of the most interesting startups to emerge from DEMO

October 5th, 2012

YouBetMe is an app that lets you challenge your friends (and strangers) to a wager about anything — at anytime. The app lets you capitalize on all of life’s betting opportunities, whether it’s on Monday Night Football, whether your startup will get covered by TechCrunch, how many Jello shots you can take, etc. Users can also create and confirm bets on the go through the app’s SMS-based betting platform, tracking betting data and view public ratings designed to keep bettors honest.


Youbetme: Social media for gamblers isn’t gambling

October 4th, 2012

Youbetme is a social platform for gamblers that will allow users to place peer-to-peer bets, and it’s founder says it’s totally legal. And at the DEMO conference in Silicon Valley, although he acknowledged reason to be cautious, Jason Neubauer said the possible problems with such a service are just a sign of the demand. “Where there’s red flags there’s opportunity,” Neubauer, cofounder and chief executive, toldUpstart Business Journal on Wednesday. “And the word bet already has a negative connotation about it. Peer-to-peer betting is actually legal,” he said. “But in no way, shape, or form are we doing anything other than letting people have fun.”


Youbetme - A new twist on building communities of shared interests

October 4th, 2012

A couple of sites offered new twists on building communities of shared interests. Youbetme lets users place a bet on anything, anywhere and anytime with friends using technology that tracks payment terms and even has a community rating system. “There was nothing that let you bet easily with your friends,” explained CEO Jason Neubauer when asked about the motivation for starting such a site.
