Comeon sports book has been around for a few years now and has made quite an impact on the world of online bookies. Especially in the UK where it has been battling with giants and has carved out a nice share of the market so much so that the Swedish gambling company Cherry AB has bought them out.
What kind of impact this has in the future is yet to be understood but for punters with more than one sports book account this may cause some issues surrounding duplicate accounts. The company says they are operating separately but it would be wise to get written information from the customer service team.
So let’s get on with the Comeon review. Landing on the page you have another black and grey site. This one however has a good splash of colour from the central banner to brighten things up.
Strangely enough it has a wood effect header which is a bit weird. Maybe it’s meant to be a snooker table rail? Anyway the initial feel you get is it’s not too serious the layout is bog standard with nothing to shocking. Functionality works well the search feature is nice and saves a lot of trawling.
Sports list on the left, fixtures and markets in the middle, betting slip on the right. Nothing unusual there. The fact that there is an integrated poker room and casino but no banners pushing them on you is another nice touch. We come to the site to place bets on sports not get side tracked by slots!
As a UK facing sports book football is always going to be way out in front. Every league imaginable can be wagered on and some you didn’t know existed! With over one hundred markets to take a punt on there’s enough gamble for the hardiest amongst you. Onlt the very biggest bookies offer more markets than Comeon and this is a big plus. It doesn’t stop with footie though no you can get a good choice of markets on most of the sports offered and there are plenty to choose from.
The odds are very good for one of the smaller bookies and is one of the reasons that Comeon have done so well so quickly. Another reason is that they have taken on horse racing which is no easy task. A lot of dedicated knowledgeable staff are needed to maintain a good race card. Comeon has the selection of UK and Ireland meetings with competitive odds. The only slight negative is the actually race card on the site doesn’t give as much information as some of the competition. But it looks good and works well. There are no exotic bets taken at Comeon so it’s purely a sports book.
Sign up and get a Comeon bonus of a £10 free bet when you make a deposit. Not a huge bonus but it only requires you to bet £10 once on any market with a price of 1.50 or greater (decimal odds). So compared to most this is actually a pretty good bonus. At the moment there’s an enhanced odds sign up bonus if you sign up before the kickoff between Bournemouth and Manchester City you will get better odds for the match. These little offers change but are a regular feature of the site.
Comeon are in the middle of a ‘Winter Break’ promotion with gifts and prizes dished out daily. Comeon run a footbalquiz very Friday on Twitter with free bets as prizes. The thing is with Comeon bonuses they are realistic. They market the fact that their bonuses are easy to understand which they are. You’re account balance is split between bonus and real money and as one convert to the other it is in your account straight away.
One of the areas that could do with a bit more work is the customer support. There is no 24/7 live support which in this day and age is, well, not so good. 9am until 9pm for the UK chat line is frankly poor and no telephone lines at all is not something to shout about either. The support staff know what they are doing its just only 12 hours a day is not good at all. The fact that you have to look for the live chat feature is not so good either. That said maybe things will get better on that front.
Banking is another area that’s not so stunning there are only a few choices debit/credit cards and a couple of e-Wallets that’s all. Depositing with Skrill and Neteller will cost you 5% the rest are free. Withdrawals are free however you make them.
When loading the live in-play selections it can take a little while. There are better working systems out there but it does work well when loaded. The number of matches that can be bet on is very good as is the choice of sports. There are plenty of markets available and the odds seem competitive enough. It’s not the best feature of the site however it needs a bit of work. That said it’s a lot better than it was so let’s hope this is an ongoing process of improvement.
Now we get to the Comeon mobile app where is it? The site is terrible on a mobile via the browser you lose the betting slip and the whole thing generally doesn’t work very well. On the FAQs page there are references to bets working on mobile devices but the site is not good. The overall verdict of this Comeon review is not too bad the site is good there’s lots of info from the blog and stat page and the odds and markets are good. There are areas though that could do better.
