ComeOn Sportsbook Review
Comeon are one of the new kids on the British gambling block and they are growing all the time. They embrace the fact that they are new and focus on being fun, light-hearted and modern. Sample quote: “We are located on a former British colony, namely Malta. It's in the middle of the Mediterranean, close to Italy. Maybe your grandparents have been on holiday here.”
My grandparents have indeed been to Malta, where Comeon are licensed and regulated by the island’s Lotteries and Gaming Authority, but despite their Maltese base Comeon are essentially a British company. They also now hold a UK license for customers betting from the United Kingdom. They were founded in 2009 and went fully live the following year so it is no surprise to see they are not quite as developed as some of the high street big boys who have histories going back 100 years or more. That said, they are fast learners and we like what we see and are confident you will too.
Their casino utilises the software of multiple companies to offer a wide range of games. It is available to play in instant mode, with no download of software required and uses games from NetEnt, Microgaming, CTXM and Sheriff Gaming, the latter being renowned for their amazing 3D slots.
Sports Welcome Offer
Comeon offers new customers a £25 free bet and a further freebie in the form of 10 free spins on a specified slot. Just sign up and make a deposit of between £10 and £25 and Comeon will match that 100% with a nice welcome bonus.
In order to withdraw the funds and any winnings you must wager the bonus and deposit amount six times on sports bets (odds of at least evens) or 35 times in the casino or a combination of the two. If you complete the full registration process you will also find 10 free spins waiting for you when you open the named slot (usually Jack Hammer) in the Video Slots section of the casino.
Comeon do not run too much in the way of promotions at the moment but in a way we applaud that as they try to grow their customers steadily, rather than attracting loads of people who come for the promotions and nothing else. Aside from the opening free bet they have some tournaments in the casino that offer good prizes for very low stakes and they also have a very good mobile offer. Your first bet placed via mobile is risk free. Place a bet of £10 by mobile and if it loses at odds of 4/5 or higher they will refund it. Note this is a straight cash refund with no further wagering and only applies to your first ever mobile bet, not your first mobile bet that loses.
They do, however, offer a great loyalty scheme which allows you to earn Comeon! Points for virtually everything you do on the site. These can be used to claim free money, lottery entries and reload deposit bonuses and can add up quite quickly for those that like to bet regularly.
Sports Betting Features
As said, Comeon are new and because of that they cannot compete at the moment with the very best around. They offer sports betting, an online casino and a poker room and the range of sports and markets is not as great as you would get elsewhere. One big issue for some punters will be the lack of racing, with no horse racing at all at present, although this may be added in the coming months.
However, most of the essentials are there, with a decent mobile site, a reasonable in-play console that is easy to use and a website that is as functional and easy on the eye as any. Moreover, they have some nice, interesting features that you can see are a result of their fresh, modern approach. The fact that you can complete the wagering on the sportsbook or casino is nice, the short sign up form is a good time saving option and the customer service callback option is another example of putting the customer first.
Comeon are definitely worth a try, not least for the mobile offer and sign up bonus. If you’re looking for somewhere fun and friendly to bet Comeon could be the place – just don’t expect all the extras you might get elsewhere.
