Betsafe are an exciting name in the sports betting industry at the minute and they’ve brought some exciting new features to the table to aid them in their quest to become one of the biggest in the industry. What’s interesting is that Betsafe have actually been in operation since 2006, but it would be fair to say that up until the last couple of years they’ve struggled to really get a foothold in what’s becoming a tough marketplace for new and even existing brands.
Having said that, the company can roll of some impressive numbers with a client database pushing over 450,000 and their sportsbook catering for punters in over 100 countries worldwide.
Based out of Malta, Betsafe are regulated by the Malta Gaming authority and the Alderney Gambling control commission (AGCC).
Betsafe Welcome offer
When registering a new account at Betsafe you’re going to be able to take advantage of a £20 free bet when you make your first deposit and bet of just £10. The process to claim the offer is actually very simple and all you really need to do is make sure that your bet is placed at odds of 1.80 or greater. The free bet will hit your account within 24 hours of the bet being settled and you will be able to use that free bet in its entirety for up to 7 days. Any returns that you receive from your free bet stake will not include stake returned.
One of the things that Betsafe do as well as anybody in the industry is make sure that their existing player database is well catered for. By this we mean that the offers that they put in place aren’t just for new players but also allow existing players to utilise as well. The majority of the more appealing ones are that of money back promotions and enhanced odds, which are generally time sensitive and run throughout major tournaments and leagues.
It’s worth keeping an eye on the website whenever there are major tournaments taking place as Betsafe often do countdown specials as they get nearer. For example, at the time of writing the Euros are just around the corner and each day leading into the tournament Betsafe are offering up enhanced odds on selected pre-match and pre-tournament markets for the competition. They also state that these will continue throughout the tournament, which is something they have been good at over the years.
Betsafe’s best feature has to be their attention to detail when it comes to live betting. The section is positively buzzing with matches and it’s a section of the site that allows you to wager 24/7, making it popular for more dedicated sports bettors. As a follow up to this, we must mention that their pricing is now one of the most competitive in the industry as well. A quick test through at Oddschecker.com has shown Betsafe to consistently be there or thereabouts with a number of markets that we examined.
Next up we wanted to mention their mobile betting app, which is stunning! The app is downloadable on both iOS and Android devices making it super accessible. One thing we noticed was the app included all betting markets that the online version had, which may not seem like a big deal, but it’s surprising to see how many bookmakers don’t include each and every betting market.
Finally we wanted to give a shout to their e-sports betting section. For those of you who don’t know, e-sports is essentially online gaming and it’s where players will play on video games against other players in high profile tournaments. The industry is worth millions these days and Betsafe have obviously decided that it’s going to be a great betting platform, of which they are quickly being proved right about. We cant say if it’s the best e-sports betting section in the industry at the minute, but it seems like its one of their fastest growing markets, which means that their must be a high volume of players clambering to wager through them.
