Betbright Review 2018 - Sports Betting Review

Betbright is one of the crop of newer bookmakers to have launched and they are owned by Dedsert (Ireland) Limited. Their company philosophy is to really deliver to punters what the punters want and with a clear and direct focus of just getting the punter to the meat and bones of online betting.

According to their ethos, they have tried to cut out complicated forms and from getting heavily into betting jargon as well to help new customers get just as much enjoyment out of the site as more experienced punters. They have probably been noticed for their casino, but their sports betting service is actually pretty good. We are taking a look at that sportsbook in our Betbright review.

Betting markets and odds quality 7/10

You will probably notice that the whole feel of BetBright is a light, fun environment. It's brightly coloured with plenty of cool graphics. That was the first thing we noticed for our review of Betbright, just how the website itself felt. Even clicking around the sportsbook there is an entertaining feel about that. Anyway, a sportsbook isn't about how good it looks it is about how well it operates.

Really the most important thing of it all is just how much market variety is in there for punters. Also, what the odds are like in comparison to other operators. We had a look at all that. We will mention that BetBright is highly regarded for their casino services, so does their sportsbook stand up. We think so, to some degree at least but with room for more.

Landing on the site first of all, at first glance we did notice that first off the sportsbook didn't offer the expansive range of markets and sports that some of the major, more established brokers in the industry do. We did feel it came up just a little bit short in that area, not to any detriment in terms of operation though. That may not even effect of a lot of punters who never look towards the niche markets but concentrate on the main ones.

Naturally, a bookmaker is not going to last for long without a big focus on the key sports like football and horse racing. They are the two staples of UK bookmaking of course. Naturally, they are both very well covered along with all the other major sports like tennis, golf, cricket and the big North American sports as well. So that is a huge plus because those main markets are well supported through variety and sub-markets.

It is just if you wanted to expand your horizons a bit further or were looking for big coverage on more of the niche sports, perhaps like Volleyball, Handball and the such, it may not quite be all there for you. So it's a matter of taste really. We had a quick look at a football match from Spain's top flight and found over 100 different bets (pre-match) available for that one game. So that was good for variety.

The sportsbook is pretty neat and tidy we have to say that since their origins, back in 2014, they have added virtual sports to their services. We still found the odds to be fair, nothing spectacular and nothing that would see you losing out heavily to a competitor really. They are in the middle ground somewhere. That's not a bad thing. Maybe that is where you go and look at promotions to try and boost your value.

The betting margins are average and with everything being presented very well in the markets, you have a pretty decent product available. Again, at the end of the day when it comes to that sports betting, the sportsbooks could be more expensive. But that doesn't limit you in terms of submarkets on a given sporting event. Certainly not when it comes to the major sports at least.



Betbright sign up bonus, free bets & current promotions 8/10

The current Betbright sign-up bonus is a 25% back on in-play as a free bet. 25% back as a Free Bet on In Play - 18+. New customers only. Min Deposit £10. Max free bet £100. Min free bet £10.

In-play betting 8/10

The bookmaker offers live in-play betting so you can follow the live sport with them through a good console. Their live betting operates quickly and efficiently actually and was good to drive. There is a nice list of current events being organised by sports. There was a nice touch on the in-play page of a clear calendar that you can browse through by tabs to see what is coming up. Much like the sports book, the organisation and clarity of the in-play betting section are very good. We like the design a lot on the site.

You will find a good amount of markets available for a current live sports event, although unlike most bookmakers, they don't tell you on the main overview page how many markets there are for a game. You simply click the 'more' button and find out for yourself. That was a little niggle. But everything else from the score and the current time in a game is listed there on the overview. You can collapse sports that you don't want to see on the in-play betting page.

When it comes to the different sports that they offer up for live in play betting, they did well. You would expect to the find the usual of football, American football and tennis. We were surprised to find further flung options like volleyball in there which pleased us when we looked at their in-play services for our Betbright review. Although again, the depth in markets was nowhere near as extensive as the main sports that are in focus on the sports.

Overall the in-play service is operational and we found it easy to flick around between the different sports and the different events that were happening. There is stats support for the live options, perhaps not as extensive as some of the major players in the industry, but it wasn't the worst by any stretch of the imagination. Overall, good variety on a solid platform and there's nothing there to turn punters away.

Extras & features 8/10

You get the big feature of BBTV, which is the Betbright TV live streaming service. This is available for funded account holders and they bring streams right to your desktop. That's a great feature to have running alongside the live in-play betting. You can access the streams from the button on the top menu bar. This is an important feature for punters and it extends to their mobile services as well. There are viewing restrictions so check the terms.

Betbright does run a blog as well where you can find sporting news and tips in some places, plus a stat zone where they get into more depth about a current event. It's worth a poke around just to get some ideas of betting opportunities. It is part of the overall lightness of feel that the website has to it.

There are nice quick links to Football Coupons, everything from UK Elite to Both Teams To Score and they are available on the home page. You get good stat coverage across the site, from the usual horse racing fare to football stats and beyond. They do offer a Specials market for those things outside of sport too and as mentioned above, they are now open for Virtual Sports trading as well. Just for that extra little dimension on your betting.

There is a My Live Races block that you will see on the home page and that is where you can get access to their live streaming that they run on all UK and Irish racing. The races there will appear 30 minutes before post and if you want to watch a race live, go and have a punt on it first.

They do offer rotating promotions and bonuses so it is worth checking in with them now and against to see what is going on. That can simply be done through their promotions link on the page. They do offer best odds guaranteed on all UK and Irish horse racing. Another of their long-standing staples when it comes to promotions is the BetBright +1 Acca Insurance which enables you to add a bonus leg to your football acca when betting through mobile. You basically build a qualifying acca (minimum odds have to be met) and then you get a bonus leg. If the bonus leg loses yet the rest of your original bets wins, you get a full win. If the bonus leg wins as well, you get a bonus!

User-friendliness of website & mobile app / mobile version 8/10

The site is nice to get around, the layout has been done very well and the presentation is fresh, it is light and navigable. So there are no complaints there at all. We actually found it to be one of the more enjoyable betting websites to click around inside of. So they certainly deserve good points in that regards in our Betbright betting review.

So on to the Betbright mobile app review part. There are two ways to access the mobile version of this website. They have a dedicated app for Android and iOS users. You can get to the Android version under the 'Mobile' link on the website and that's because Google Play doesn't promote gambling products. You can get the Apple version from the store.

There is a mobile website, which translates well from the desktop version. It operated pretty quickly we found really, covering all the sportsbook markets well. One of the main reasons to have the mobile betting in whichever version is simply to get access to live-in-play options. That is where you can take control of your bets.

We found the access of it quick and easy to use. There are live streaming and virtual sports on there, a betfinder and that stack of in-play markets to enjoy.

Overall / Conclusion 8/10



Overall the look and feel of Betbright are pretty nice. It's nicely functional but the sportsbook isn't the most expansive one out there at all. But if you are focused on just the big sports then you won't be let down by them. There's plenty going on at the site and the addition of live streams is a huge plus as well.

There are good racing coverage and decent odds all around. It is a solid platform that will likely grow in stature over time. They have a very good base to work off and the big pluses of the whole BetBright experience are the ease of operation on their website and mobile versions.
