About the Bookie
Formerly known as Casino770, NetBet has been online since 2001. With a Malta-license, NetBet has made itself available in 9 different languages (English, Spanish, French, German, Greek, Romanian, Russian, Dutch and Japanese). NetBet has become known for offering a huge variety of promotions, welcome bonuses and special offers and giving players plenty of opportunities to win.
NetBet offers betting markets on a huge variety of sports: Football, Basketball, American Football, Tennis, Baseball, Ice Hockey, Handball, Rugby League, Golf, Snooker, Pool, Motor Racing, Darts, Cycling, Speedway, Volleyball, Boxing, Athletics, Cricket, Floorball, Winter Sports, Badminton, Rugby Union, Bandy, Aussie Rules, MMA and Surfing.
The site also offers country specific special betting markets which can be on a range of events such as upcoming elections or ongoing reality TV shows.
NetBet has recently launched a Live Betting section on its website. Here it is easy to browse and enjoy in-play betting odds on a huge range of sports. Every day there numerous markets available on basketball, tennis, football, ice hockey, volleyball, handball, snooker, pool, darts and much more. There is also a dedicated section for Asian sports. The Live Betting section of the site is extremely well designed so that it is easy to take in at a glance what live events are on and how far progressed they are.
Unfortunately at the moment NetBet doesn’t offer any kind of live streaming service, neither radio nor television. This does let it down next to some competitors; however, there is a better chance of finding in-play betting odds on an obscure game at NetBet than at many other bookmakers.
While there is no app, NetBet does run an extremely good mobile website. In many ways this is better as it means it can be accessed by any mobile device with an internet connection and web browser.
The site is extremely impressive; it gives access to all of NetBet’s betting markets including the in-play odds. When you reach the site you are presented with an overview of current live events, highlights and upcoming events. However, it is very easy to browse and see the odds on any sport.
Furthermore, the mobile site allows you to sign up for an account as well as browse all of the bookmaker’s promotions, help pages and every other area of the main website. Best of all the first time you use the mobile site you will receive a £10 free bet.
Unique about the Bookie
As already mentioned, NetBet is very well known for its range of promotions and bonuses. In addition to the Welcome Bonus and mobile promotion, there are many more exciting promotions on offer.
At the time of writing the site is giving the chance to win a trip to watch the World Cup in Brazil just by entering a bonus code when depositing money. Another promotion will treble your payout if a player you’ve backed as a game’s first goal scorer goes on to score a hat trick. There are also generous bonuses when betting on US sports.
These are just some of the current promotions and it really is worth checking regularly as there are always some extremely generous offers available.
NetBet provides customer support 24/7 and aims to respond to any customer query within half an hour. It is possible to contact the site via live chat, telephone and email. Unfortunately the live chat isn’t available 24/7, but it is open from 8am until midnight every day. Another downside is that the customer support helplines are all based in England so international punters will have to pay a premium rate.
However, the site does answer emails extremely quickly and there is a comprehensive FAQ section on the website so it doesn’t take too much time or effort to have queries answered.
Deposits and Withdrawals
While NetBet doesn’t have the largest range of banking options, it does offer a number of fast, well respected and secure methods.
It is possible to deposit money using credit and debit cards, bank transfer, Click2Pay, ClickandBuy, EntroPay, Neteller, paysafecard, Sofortuberweisung and Ukash. Deposits are normally instantaneous but bank transfers will take a bit more time. Moreover, it is only possible to make deposits in Great British Pounds and Euros.
When it comes to withdrawals the options are slightly more limited. It is possible to withdraw money using bank transfer, Neteller and Skrill. Nonetheless, these methods are adequate and shouldn’t stop anyone getting their winnings. The minimum withdrawal amount is €20.
If you’re looking for an independent bookmaker then Recommended Bookies thinks you could do a lot worse than NetBet. The site is lacking in some features which larger bookmakers offer such as live streaming and a greater variety of banking options. However, this is made up for with an impressive range of bonus offers and promotions and a truly vast number of betting markets. NetBet particularly impressed when it came to betting on lower league and international football matches, no matter what game we looked for, there was always a market available.
