Netbet Review 2017 - Sports Betting ReviewThey are a promising bookmaker, clearly on the rise and they have a lot of nice touches about their services to enjoy as well. They were formerly know as Bet770 and they are owned by the Cosmo Gaming Company Ltd. They were only actually established in 2009 and they run under Malta jurisdiction. However, they are establishing a very good brand for themselves and will have appeal to a lot of punters.
Betting markets and odds quality 7/10
There is some good variety knocking around the NetBet sportsbook. It has a very similar feel to a lot of other bookmakers so there’s nothing really stand out about the design or the layout of the sportsbook. It’s all driven by a menu on the left and you get a listing of betting highlights live betting and upcoming events on the landing page. There are always quick links around on the left hand menu to get you to main events quickly. All in all, with nice odds presentation and management in the bet slip, things get off to a good start with NetBet.
Football betting fans will be happy with the low betting margin on the sport that the bookmaker runs at, which is a little over 4%. There is horse racing as well on offer, which is something that not all of the newer bookmakers actually provide. If you look at a particular event, like a soccer match at NetBet, you will find a lot of markets for a given game. You can dip into a really obscure match and find upwards of 50 markets going on, so you aren’t short of choice, which is nice. When you stack up the overall odds of markets across the sportsbook against those of the major players in the industry, then you aren’t left short at NetBet, which is nice.
They are decently competitive with their markets, their odds quality and their margin and that gives you a feel of a solid betting platform with which to use.
Sign up bonus, free bets & current promotions 7/10You get a nice welcome bonus of up to a free £50 bet from NetBet when you register as a new customer. Just go and open your account with them and when you do, use the code WELCOME50 and make your first deposit. Then after turning over your first deposit once at minimum odds of 1.60 you will get a free bet added to your account automatically. This will be to a 50% value of your initial deposit amount.
Netbet are not a huge provider of bonuses when it comes to sports betting, you will see more focus on the casino and poker for example, but when they do roll out a promotion on sports, it is usually a pretty good one. For example they will offer double winnings for example on goalscorer markets for a game and offer things like a Combo Boost on the MLS. There are also tennis combo bonuses to be picked up as well, all giving you the chance to increase your winnings.
Netbet do also run good prize-promotions and they have sent winners VIP style to Euro 2016 for example and they offered a huge £1 million prize fund for a European Championship offering that they were running as well. On top of that, they will match the first mobile bet up to £10 on their new mobile platform as well.
In-play betting 8/10Of course, there is in play betting and you get a lot of it at NetBet and you can see the current events right on the landing page, displaying the latest odds, the status of the event and how many open markets there are going on in there. You can filter sports in live betting by tabs as well. So maybe you want to click on a specific game, then do so and you will be taken to the main overview display of the in-play betting section. What is really nice about he NetBet In-play service is that we have a big nod towards Asian Handicap betting. It’s right there at the top of the betting markets (when available) on a selected match.
You can also switch the entire live in-play view over to the Asian View for full Asian Handicap coverage which is a brilliant thing to be able to do. It adds extra value to your football betting and is a great comfort for those experienced in the betting system. Yu get decent infographics to depict what is happening in the game and the live stats display is a great little touch. It’s a very well rounded product and it is quick to browse around and strike bets with, which is what you are looking for.
Extras & features 6/10You aren’t going to be flush with extra features on there than a strong running n sportsbook. There are the standard basics of statistics, results and the such happening on the site, which is nothing more than you would expect. The betting slip itself has been nicely done, allowing you to switch between singles, combos and system bets as you would like. Really the big standard feature of the NetBet service is their live in-play betting platform and that ability to go quickly to Asian Handicap betting.
There’s not a lot else in terms of features, the site is lacking live streaming service and the popular cash out feature. You are basically looking at a sportsbook and that is the extent of that. There is no live streaming or cash out feature available on bets at NetBet.
Payment options - deposit and withdrawal methods 7/10There are lot of ways to get money into your NetBeT account, from the usual Visa and Mastercard Bank Cards through to ewallets like Skrill and Neteller. Most of the funding methods have a £10 minimum, but the maximums will vary alot depending on the method being used. Not all funding methods qualify for funds needed for promotional bets.
Deposit Methods Include: Visa, Mastercard, Skrill, Giropay, Neteller, bitcoin, Paysafecard, ecard, Euteller, Trustly, Bank Transfer and InstaDebit
Withdrawal Methods Include: Visa, Mastercard, Skrill, Neteller, Bank Transfer, WebMoney, Qiwi and Moneta.
User-friendliness of website & mobile app / mobile version 7/10The site operates well and looks pretty decent. There’s nothing overly flashy about the build or the design of the NetBet website and you will see straight comparison to the likes of others as a betting platform. It’s useable and because it is a pretty basic sportsbook at the core of everything then you have a site which is easy to use and get around. There is a mobile version and an app of the website on offer as well and that basic feel that you get on the main website translates over. You do get special mobile offers and that extra free bet when you use your mobile device for the first time.
Customer Service & Support, Security & Reliability 7/10There is a help centre available at NetBet so you can dip in there and try and find some answers. Also from there you can access a live chat with a representative or fill out the email form that is there. If you want to call them then you can at 0044 203 608 6024. They run with the best encryption technology around and Websecurity Transactions handles their transactions.
Overall / Conclusion 7/10
The feel of the site is actually pretty nice and there are decent enough options and prices knocking around the sportsbook to warrant a look at NetBet. They still could improve the promotions site and add features like live betting . The bare bones of the site is pretty good and the app operates well and is worth a look as well.
