To start this Betcart review it must be said that it’s nice to see a splash of colour in a sports book. So many these days are drab and frankly mind numbingly boring to visit. Yes Betcart still uses the grey and black that seems to be the standard these days but they use a nice bright blue as well and green to highlight the fixtures or on their Asian version green, blue and red.
So all in all it still has a calm feel to it but with a bit of pep. So the functionality is as good as any, the setup is the standard sports list on the left, fixtures in the middle and betting slip on the right. A nice feature is a banner on the right with live scores displayed.
In all it is a very pleasant place to be. Enough colour to not be boring useful information that doesn’t distract. There is of course a banner for their casino which seems to be the norm for every sports book that comes online these days. But this Betcart review is all about the sports book not their other offerings.
There is a reasonable bonus scheme in place at Betcart the welcome to Betcart bonus is a 50% match bonus up to €250. The minimum deposit €15 and a Betcart bonus code is needed. A pretty fair set of wagering requirements is a rollover of six times the deposit and bonus. This does depend on your country of residence. This is an area that gets a bit of moaning in the forum but it happens. The time limit is also generous at 45 days to complete the wagering requirements.
There are a ton of other promotions run by Betcart and they change regularly. The company that owns the site has been around for a while but this version is fairly new. The general chatter online is this site pays out on its bonuses with not too much trouble.
Betcart has a totally modern approach and there is no need for a download when you want to use the site via a mobile device. Just login to their mobile version from your devices browser and it works. All be it not as well as some. It is a bit of a letdown to be honest but it does work for any device. You can get access to all of the site it just needs a bit of scrolling that’s all.
The site seems to be focused on the Asian market there are a number of languages including Farsi which may be seen as a bit of an insult but there you go. A number European countries are catered for as well with a good selection of currencies accepted. The selection of sports available is a good one. Football is top of the list with many games featured from around the world. In fact there are so many games you can gamble on the list is a full page with three columns. You can even gamble on the Mexican youth league.
The number of markets is up there with the best over one hundred per match is not in first place but it is in the top tier. Odds are firmly in the mid pack nothing to shocking either way. Although if you look through the list you will find one or two very tasty prices. The Betcart live in-play system works well there is no real delay the software works, however, the odds are not so good live. The major and minor American leagues get a good showing with a decent amount of available markets.
You can bet on some of the more obscure sports like floorball as well as e-Sports and a host of virtual offerings. A few specials are offered like the Oscars and some politics as well.There are in total over 25 sports to gamble on and it looks likely to increase.
Betcart is definitely trying to be a global player the banking options reflect that. A European may not recognize a lot of the options. There is no need to worry though the favourite e-Wallets are there along with a ton of other electronic payment methods. Forums are reporting excellent payout times which is a refreshing change for a new company. But they are not really new and this brings us to the questions.
Just before Betcart came online another site apparently owned by the same company went offline. Betcas had a terrible reputation in forums with a lot of complaints and issues arising. So much so that a lot blacklisted them and called them a scam site. The problem with tracing companies is it can get a bit cloudy to say the least. Both companies on paper look the same both registered in Curacao which is not a glowing recommendation in itself. That said maybe the brand needed to be closed and the issues fixed by a rebrand it has happened before.
That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a scam just that it had unfixable issues. It does raise some flags and would need to be monitored. Reputations can be destroyed online very easily so it should be said that you need to gauge your own experience. So far Betcart is building up a good standing in customer forums. It is getting good reviews in all of the areas that are important. They payout on time and the bonuses are actually achievable. The fact that they may be linked to a site that had a very bad rep is something that needs to be kept in mind. But maybe they learnt their lessons and are trying to get it right this time. The jury is out but so far it looks ok.
