If you follow boxing in the UK, or are even just a casual fan who has tuned into some of the big world championship fights over the last few months, it is likely that you are familiar with Betsafe. They have been one of the major sponsors of the sport, but thankfully, it is clear there is a lot more to this sports betting provider than simply branding.
From Big To Small
You will find an understandable emphasis on the most relevant current events on Betsafe, including ongoing showpiece occasions such as major international football tournaments, tennis Grand Slams and golf majors. But that’s not to say there are not a wealth of options when it comes to smaller leagues, tournaments, and competitions from around the world. Even better, you can follow a selected group of events live on the Betsafe site through their streaming service.
There seems to be no bias where gender is concerned, with a wide range of women’s sport options available from football to tennis, and a noticeable number of age group events, such as football’s under-20 FIFA World Championships. The US Sports Centre makes Betsafe a particularly good shout for those who want to try their luck in NBA basketball, American football, ice hockey and baseball markets.
Let’s Go Live
This live streaming option is especially helpful when following the in-play bets which are a huge part of the Betsafe offering. “We have what it takes to win, do you?” challenges Betsafe to in-play punters on its site, and those visitors who do feel up for a shot at winning big on live action have a galaxy of options available to them, as well as information on fixtures which are to begin in a short while.
Despite the high-profile nature of the platform, Betsafe recognises the need to get punters on board by offering a solid range of promotions and bonuses. Before you have even got down to business, new members are offered the opportunity to double their first deposit bonus, claiming up to €30 as a welcome gift. Then there are event-specific promotions, such as the French Open offer available at the time of writing – punters are offered 10 per cent more on any bet during the tennis tournament should they win, with 10 per cent of their stake back if they don’t. And mobile users are certainly held in high regard by Betsafe – Mondays see them offer a 25 per cent top up on winnings made by users of a small-screen device.
While sports might be its bread and butter, there are casino, live casino and poker options to get stuck into on Betsafe, making the ‘one-stop shop’ tag entirely justified. There are also virtual sports which mean you don’t even have to wait for the real thing in order to enjoy the excitement of football, tennis, basketball and horse racing, as virtual fixtures are taking place regularly.
For those who develop a taste for the enthralling nature of betting on live sports, the Betsafe app means you can have all the thrills and spills of the live sports book in the palm of your hand. Available on both Android and Apple devices, it includes a live streaming service which means you have all you need to place bets and then follow live events, on the move.
All in all, Betsafe is a superb offering which combines all sports betting’s modern tricks of the trade – such as a mobile app, live streaming and in-play options – to great effect, while catering for niches such as US sport.
