Bethard can quite rightly take up a position among the leading sports betting platforms online, with its vast array of fixtures for punters to place money on (including live and virtual sports), along with a casino offering plenty of promotions to get your teeth into.
Keeping It Current
Bethard displays an attractive layout and colour scheme, but one of the aspects of the site which leaps out is its sense of immediacy. The sports section is headlined by a list of the high-profile sporting fixtures for any particular day, giving punters a ‘menu’ of the top action taking place over the next few hours. Directly underneath is a Live Betting section, offering the opportunity to takes odds on events happening ‘in play’ from around the world of sport, and this is above a section for Last Minute bets, giving a run down of the fixtures about to go live, and allowing punters to place bets before they begin. This last minute section meanwhile has a handy countdown clock which lets site visitors know how many minutes are left before the start of an event.
A Sporting Spread
As well as offering the pick of the markets for global sports such as football, tennis, golf and boxing, Bethard combines the best of sports from both sides of the Atlantic, with Euro-centric sports such as futsal and skiing on the Bethard roster, along with American favourites such as NBA basketball, baseball and ice hockey. Football coverage is deep and is given due prominence – at the time of writing the three top markets listed on the Bethard ‘Quick Links’ were football competitions currently being played, and this was in the football ‘off season’ in many countries.
Promotions And Bonuses
Bethard do their bit to entice punters with a selection of promotions and bonuses. New players can enjoy a 125 per cent deposit bonus of up to €125 on their first deposit – money which can then be used to play in their sport section. A cashout option is now also included, meaning site users are able to forfeit a bet during an event which is in play, taking a profit before anything changes in the status of the game, or save some money on a bet which looks like it will lose. For those who like a combo or accumulator, Bethard offers a ‘Combo Booster’ of up to 30 per cent on winnings from these type of bets made pre-match – the bigger the combo, the bigger the booster.
Bethard does perform a ‘double act’ of live sports and casino options, giving visitors the chance to mix up their sport betting with casino play. Daily casino deals are offered, including up to 30 free spins on selected games specifically for smartphone users with the Go Mobile offer on Mondays – ten free spins are available for €20 and 30 Free Spins for €50 on the Neon Staxx game. Fridays are the time for the Go Bigger promotion, currently being offered on the Sevens High game, and providing extra value in the form of wager-free spins. Slots, jackpots, roulette and blackjack are all part of the standard Bethard casino, making it a well-rounded addition to the sports betting on offer.
A Well-integrated Platform
Bethard does well in its mission to provide punters with a wide range of pre-match and in-play betting options on a wide range of sports. Its focus on bringing the most current markets to the attention of visitors should be commended, and its easily navigable style and amiable design make it a platform which is a pleasure to spend time on.
