Betolimp are another new kid on the block in Europe. Their sports book came online in 2015 with a Maltese license. It turns out that they are not so new to the game. Visit Cape Town and you can have a flutter in one of their shops or go have a drink in their sports betting bar.
Eastern Europeans will know who there are as well with a presence in Russia and the stans of Eurasia. That may not reassure that many but the brand is legitimate. The platform is offed in English, German and Russian. There are quite a few restrictions and banned countries so check first that you are ok to gamble on their site. The customer service seems to be pretty good with not too much delay in answering.
The site is not the most exciting to visit but it’s not black and grey so that is a huge plus.
It has the standard set upon the page with the list of sports on the left, fixtures and markets in the middle. With the betting slip and a couple of banners on the right. A big hurrah no casino. The site is a dedicated sports book so no distractions and endless e-mails trying to get you to play the latest and greatest in slots. Yawn.
So the site looks nice and original and while there’s not much you can do to change a sports book around it does feel different from the rest. The site is simple to use there’s nothing hidden no side tabs to go to separate markets or anything like that. No, you click on your sport you will get the matches in the next 24hrs you can then refine your search very easily from there on in. It works well. The straight bet is one click and it’s in your betting slip. If you want to expand just click the extra markets and they all come up. It’s nothing spectacular or new it just works really well.
The important thing is it feels different yet easy to use. The site doesn’t feel like all the other same old template style rubbish.
The Betolimp bonus is a bog standard bet €100 get a free bet bonus €100. You hen have to use that free bet within 7 days. There are of course other terms and conditions and to be fair the bonus is well not much really. You have to bet €100 on odds worse than evens so it is a risky thing. You then have to bet the bonus bet on odds not much better. But as we always say bookies are in business to make money not give it away.
The markets available for football especially are very good. There are not too many bookies offering over 150 markets so that is a big plus. The prices offered on major matches are pretty good too. Nothing that will shout from the roof tops but they are solid and there are no nasty shocks. With the occasionally pleasant surprise. If you are into arbitrary betting you may want to open an account with Betolimp you will find one or two that are the best. Trawl through the hundreds of games of football worldwide and you will find some very attractive wagers.
Football is of course the most popular sport available there are more events in the football section than all of the rest put together. But that’s not to say there is a shabby selection for the rest of them. Oh no. Love to gamble on Russian bandy? Alpine skiing? Floorball? Well there are available markets on all of them. Bowls, boxing, cricket, Futsal, formula 1, all of the major and some minor league ice hockey. None of the specials that a lot of books run there’s no BAFTAs or who’s going to rule Westron in Game of Thrones just good old sport. What a sports book should be all about. There’s no Betolimp live streaming but the in-play betting works well.
You get the odds you wanted without too much delay or system glitches. There’s no Betolimp mobile app as things stand but you can always log in vis your mobile browser it works ok.
There are not as many methods to deposit and withdraw as some of the larger outfits. But there’s a lot more than some for sure. Visa and MasterCard are still the most trusted and work flawlessly. Then there’s bank transfers if you don’t mind the charges! Sofort and Vpay are there as is good old Neteller, Skrill and Paysafecard.
The site hasn’t been online very long and as such doesn’t have much presence in the forums yet. There isn’t anything bad to report as far as payouts go. But it is still a young site. There are a lot of good things going for Betolimp. The site is simple but works really well. The markets available are excellent as are the prices given. If they can get a good mobile app up and running and maybe do a deal to get some live streaming going then there is a good chance they could be in for the long haul.
It’s nice to see a sports book that is all about the sport. Bells and whistles are all well and good but if the prices are no good who wants flash if you can’t win the cash? It is early days and Betolimp have to pass the test of time. As long as they payout on time and don’t start any shenanigans with bonuses and shutting down accounts things look quite good for these guys. It’s nice to see something different the plum colour of the site may not be every bodies cup of tea but at least it doesn’t make you feel like jumping off a bridge.
