OddsRing has been around for five years online now and is steadily building its client list. Licensed with the MGA, Kahnawake Territories and Curacao they have most of the world covered but not all. They had a UK Gambling Commission license but they surrendered it which is a little strange. The UK market is huge so why they would leave it is a bit of a mystery.
The UK domain name is still up and running and the site has an English platform but they don’t accept GBP anymore. But anyway the site has an integrated casino with a few different games providers. This is an OddsRing sports book review however so we will get on with that.
The site has seven language platforms English, Spanish, Czech, Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese, Polish and Turkish. Along with a huge number of currencies EUR, USD, ARS, BRL, CHF, CLP, COP, CZK, PKK, MXN, NOK, PEN, PLN, SEK and TRY. All of which points toward a site that wants South American custom.
The wallpaper background or football players is the most exciting thing about the look of the site. The format is much the same as nearly every other sport book that has come online in the last ten years. Sports list on left fixtures in the middle and the betting slip on the right. This is not a bad thing in itself the site is easy to use and there is nothing to distract you.
There are betting limits for each and every price offered shown underneath them. This is not something you see very often all bookies have limits they just don’t show them. This kind of transparency is a good thing you know where you stand. At the bottom of the fixtures there is always a rules list for each sports as well. You can’t say you’re not informed with OddsRing.
The OddsRing bonus upon sign up has a twist to it. On the face of it you have a standard match bonus. 200% deposit match up to €200. The difference is you need to collect ring points. You get one ring point for every € won or lost you need to collect a total of 25 times the amount of the bonus. So quite a lot but if you are a winner at say 3.0 odds you would get twice the points than if you lost the bet. The difference is that you can with draw at any time and you can deposit more at any point this doesn’t affect the points you have and here is no time limit. This is a nice way to give out a bonus.
The ring points are all part of the loyalty bonus which you carry on receiving with every bet you make you can convert the points into TVs, top end mobile phones or cash.
You can tell that OddsRing have not been around that long. The list of sports offered is quite short at 15. You do have the Outrights field as well, which boosts the tourneys up significantly but they have quite low limits set. The book is most definitely aimed at the low ball recreational gambler. As is the case with most bookies that don’t face the US football is the most popular sport to gamble on.
There is an A-Z of countries leagues and while the premier European leagues are heavily featured South American leagues get good coverage also. The problem is there is not such a good choice when it comes to markets that are available to bet on. Poor is the word that springs to mind some major games only have at best 20 markets. Then you can have a Czech Republic game with 60 it doesn’t make a lot of sense. The odds are however very good they are on a par and better than the major bookies. They don’t go far in advance either. You can’t place a bet on a game over a week away which is not so good either.
If you want the OddsRing mobile app you can download for Android only. There’s not much point however as the site is compatible with Android, iOS and Blackberry devices from your browser. It’s OK there is nothing to shout about the site works. The live in-play offerings are good lots of football to choose from. All of the world is covered it is another case of hit and miss when it comes to what markets are covered but if you are from South America and don’t have a lot of choice then something is better than nothing right? Football is not the only sport covered basketball has live in-play as well as ice hockey, volleyball and handball.
The odds update reasonably well although there have been some complaints in forums that they are not so accurate and change just as you make your bet. Although it has to be said these issues were dealt with by the customer service team to the satisfaction of the customer. Glitches happen folks.
There are enough banking methods to choose from and the number of currencies is astonishing. It is pretty obvious that OddsRing are targeting markets that don’t have the competition. Namely South America. The parent group ORing have two other sports books one in Spanish and one in Portuguese so enough said really. They are definitely middle of the road. Europeans have a far better choice out there. Although if you only want a straight win bet you will get some very competitive odds so its horses for course people. They are what there are. If you live in Peru you don’t have much choice the same goes for Chile, Venezuela etc.
They have only been going 5 years so it is early days in the life of OddsRing who knows where they could go.
