NetBet is part of the Cosmo Gaming Company Ltd. This s not to be confused with the Israeli lottery company. NetBet runs an integrated site with a live casino, virtual casino, poker room and a sports book. All of which are in a solid position the UK market and gaining ground with the rest of the world. This is a NetBet sports book review so we will concentrate on that.
There are nine language platforms on the site and a choice of currencies. The site is another with a dark background but there is more than enough colour in the banners to brighten things up. Functionality of the site is simple and if you are familiar with sports betting sites then nothing will surprise you. Bog standard sports list on the left with quick links to the most popular.
There is also a calendar quick link on the left as well. The middle has a couple of banners with upcoming events and of course the bonus offers, below this there is betting highlights, live betting and upcoming bets. This all switches to fixtures and markets once a field has been chosen. On the right is the betting slip and loads more banners.
There is a box with the live schedule and the top NetBet winners. Also their golden goal pool. It’s quite a busy home page but it doesn’t distract you too much, only the top banner is a carousel.
The NetBet bonus when you sign up is a 50% deposit match up to £50 for Brits and a 100% up to €100 if you are in Germany. The rest of the world will have different offers and different wagering requirements. The GB play through is a x6 deposit and bonus. As with almost all of these types of welcome bonus they look better than they are.
NetBet bonuses and offers don’t stop there though. They run a lot of promotions at NetBet at the moment there is a refund on a first scorer bet if your player scores second instead then you get a £25 free bet. The German facing site you get insurance on Bundesliga matches basically a bore draw type deal. All versions have a chance at winning a supercar. And there’s the weekly golden goal as well as up to 50% acca boost. You can also get a £10 free bet the first time you use NetBet mobile app. The download is available for both Android and iOS will the download you get weekly notifications and exclusive mobile deals.
Once again this all depends on where you live as to what you get. Or of course you can always log in via your mobile browser.
There are over 30 sports available to bet on at NetBet providing they are in season of course. All of your favourites are there along with some more obscure offerings. There is even a horse racing card admittedly it is not the most interesting of race cards on the internet. You don’t get any kind of form or even the slightest information but it is a race card. So many of the newer online bookies don’t have th bottle to run one, so bravo NetBet. It’s no wonder it is becoming popular with the Brits.
Then we have football. As with all European bookies there is an A-Z of countries with their leagues. NetBet take it that little bit further there are 15 German leagues you can bet on 15 English and half a dozen Scottish. NetBet love football. They are main sponsors to Hamilton Academicals, Saint Etienne and Steaua F.C. so it shows. The number of markets is not top spot but it is way up there with over 100 on the big games.
The markets that stand out are on the lesser games for example Ipswich Knights v Rochdale Rovers over 50 markets. The prices offered are in a similar vein not the best you can get but very competitive especially if you like the underdogs. When it comes to NetBet live in-play the story is much the same. There are a huge amount of events going on that can be wagered on with a good choice of markets. Football on a Saturday has so many you would never be bored. There are other sports catered for as well but the footie is something else.
There are 18 different options to load up your account. Think of an obscure e-Wallet it is probably there. You have Kiwi and Australian along with Russian and German methods. NetBet caters for just about everybody. PayPal is in the list too so you get there added back up. Maltese and UK licenses and regulatory oversight gives good peace of mind. No tax dodging Caribbean jurisdiction here.
There are no sanctions on any of the licenses held by the company and there are a few. There is a lot of helpful information on the site and it shows that NetBet have a commitment to responsible gambling. The fact that they are sponsoring three European football teams shows some commitment to sport also. Customer service get a fair bit of praise in the forums. The live chat is excellent with no delay and runs from 08:00 until 23:00 GMT. You do need to have an account to use it but the email is answered very quickly. There is a phone line as well up until 20:00 GMT.
NetBet use IBAS in the event of disputes that can’t be settled in house. The upshot of it all is that NetBet are fast becoming a major go to bookies in the UK. They are gaining ground in Europe and have customers from all over. If you are looking for a second or third bookies to supplement your options then NetBet is a very good choice. They are particularly good if you want to bet on some of those rather obscure lower league football matches.
