GUTS REVIEW 2019 - SPORTS BETTING REVIEW

OUR OPINIONS ABOUT GUTS

  • Superb live betting
  • Excellent coverage of esports
  • Good market prices

Online-Betting Rating:

Guts started their operations in 2013 and it was originally oriented towards casino and gaming. But less than a year later they launched their online sportsbook for customers. They boast that they have built their services based on what any punter would want at online sports betting site in addition to luck, money and well, more money.

Betting markets and odds quality 6/10

betting markets

Dipping into the sportsbook at Guts it was mostly about the football. The home page was awash with current action as well as plenty of futures. The first thing we looked at was the variety of different markets within the sportsbook. The big major sports like your football, tennis, cricket were all in the main focus. The coverage from North American markets was alright, nothing spectacular really.

There was a good presence there of e-sports. They seem to be really into that action. One notable sport that was missing from the Guts bookmaking service was horse racing. That may leave some punters short of some key action. Browsing we did find that Guts were good when it came to be variety. An MLS soccer game between Orlando and Columbus had over 140 betting options available on it. There was also some Asian Handicap betting options available which was an excellent discovery.

Odds

The futures options were actually pretty good and one of those was an English Premier League game between West Ham and Manchester City. We took a look at the odds on offer, Manchester City being 1.29 favourites at the time and put them into a comparison. We looked around to find other bookmakers having the Hammers anywhere between 1.25 and 1.3 and some. So the odds on offer from Guts for that particular market was towards the top end of the industry.

Of course, when looking at multiple markets across a larger spread of markets things are going to even out a bit. But in looking at some tennis and boxing markets along with the football, we didn’t find the bookmaker margins to be too bad at all. So that is a strong factor which helps Guts. So, all in all, there was a pretty good sportsbook, but the inclusion of some greyhound and horse racing would have taken it up the rankings.



Guts sign up bonus, free bets & current promotions 6/10

bonus

Guts Welcome Bonus Offer – £20 Money Back Offer. This is an offer which new customers only can take part in. It will basically give your money back as a sports bonus if your first bet on the new account loses, up to a maximum of £20. You don’t have to worry about a Guts bonus code or anything, just follow the link and sign up.

You will have to visit the reward section and click on the offer to opt into. The next step will be to make a minimum 10 deposit on your account and then strike your first bet on the account of a minimum odds of 1.80 decimal. The offer does apply to the first qualified bet played on the account after registration. If the bet loses, you will be covered up to the value of the maximum bonus.

The Guts website is not really flush with a great deal of sports bonuses. Aside from some alternative markets at the time we looked, there was nothing else going on. There were promotions available on other sections of their site like the poker and casino. The welcome bonus sports offer isn’t bad at all, but the rest does fall a little short in comparison to other bookies.

In-play betting 7/10

live betting

The Guts website was good for live betting. It smacks you in the face as soon as you land on their sportsbook. If you click on their Live section then you get a very good variety of markets. Not only that, we looked a match from the Brazilian top-flight halfway through the first half of the game and found there a good amount of in play options, to the tune of over 80 markets to have a poke around in.

The variety of sports was also excellent in the Guts live betting section. There was tennis from around the world including good coverage on lower-ranked tournaments when there was a Grand Slam going on, basketball, volleyball, baseball, darts and when we looked esports as well. The layout of a given event, when clicked, was also nice. A live football market had a decent enough graphical view of the main action that was going on. It will serve most punters pretty well, we feel, will the Guts live betting section.



Extras & features 5/10

extras and features

In terms of extra going on at the Guts website, there really wasn’t much to look at. At the time when we looked at their site, the Wimbledon tennis was in action. Guts were running a big competition at the time for punters to earn tickets to a prize draw through their betting. So that was a nice little feature that they had going and it may be something that they apply to other major sporting events for the future.

They do have a feature called #valuetown. This is supposedly where they offer some unique bets, a bit like a bet builder really. Just as an example of what this is, they had one for De Bruyne to score, Salah to get an assist & Sokratis to get booked. They are selling the ideas as being for the bets that you never thought existed. Other than that, extras were thin on the ground. They do offer some cash out options.



Payment options - deposit and withdrawal methods 7/10

payment options

Guts themselves do not charge for any deposits on accounts. That doesn’t speak to whether or not your financial institution will or not. The Minimum Deposit amount across the board is £10. Ways to get funds into your account aside from usual banking methods, include Paysafecard, ecoPayz, Visa, zimpler, Skrill, Neteller, Euteller, Mastercard and Sofort. The same options are used for withdrawals and they will first try to send withdrawal back to the main source of funding.



User-friendliness of website and mobile app/mobile version 6/10

mobile

You don’t get a dedicated mobile app from Guts so your device will be handling the mobile version of their website. To their credit, it does translate well on to mobile and it is very clear and easy to read. So is their main website when looking on a computer. The whole vibe that Guts gives off is one of freshness and clarity. It is quite a nice looking layout that they have.

Here though we have to make mention of their menu. It’s not the traditional left hand driven menu. You basically have boxes at the top of the screen, each representing a sport. You can customise those boxes to pick your preferred sports. If you wanted to add boxing, for example, you would hit the browse button and click on Boxing and then it would appear at the top. When you have clicked on one of your sports you will see underneath the links to jump to a specific competition. Otherwise, you would just have to scroll through the entire page to get to what you wanted to look at.



22bet Customer Service & Support, Security & Reliability 6/10

customer service

Customer service at Guts we felt relied heavily on a FAQ section. It was a little bit vague in some areas, especially when it came to specific questions about what deposit methods could be used. There is a chat agent available as well which can be found down in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. One thing we couldn’t find was a direct telephone number for support. They use industry-standard encryption technology to keep your data safe. You will have to verify your account as well. They can be contacted through email which is support@Guts with any questions.



Overall / Conclusion : 6 / 10

Guts review

Guts look and perform exactly what they are, a fresh-faced kid on the block. They look pretty good but need to add some experience. They obviously don’t have the massive trading power that major players have, but their odds were pretty strong and favourable nonetheless. That put them in good stead.

The website does offer something different in terms of design, but it does get a little clunky to navigate around. The sportsbook would benefit from horse racing to give that a boost, but if that’s not a concern then they don’t make for a bad option. They are particularly good with their live betting services and their coverage of esports if that’s your thing.
