Anyone who speaks of the big names in the international sports betting scene cannot avoid Addis betting. The British online provider has earned a very good name, especially due to its betting exchange. Due to the betting tax in USA, the offer was discontinued in 2012 in America. Meanwhile, Addis betting is back in a new form on the local market, as a classic bookmaker. In 2016, the betting provider merged with Paddy Power and has since then made offers with fixed odds available. In the following Addis betting review, we want to explicitly turn to the bookmaker offer, since the betting exchange is still closed for customers from America.
We took a closer look at the online provider in the Addis betting test and checked it thoroughly in all relevant categories. Our primary focus was of course seriousness. What betting offer does Addis betting have on the screen? Is there a bonus for new customers at the start? How do deposits and withdrawals work? At what level does customer support work? All questions are answered in detail in our Addis betting experience. However, we would like to put one point directly in front. In the area of betting odds, Addis betting is an absolute must for any professional sports bettor.
According to our Addis betting experience in the test, the betting offer can certainly be said to be mainstream. Depending on the season, customers can choose from 20 to 25 disciplines. This means that Addis betting is not a market leader in broad terms, but it definitely covers the betting needs of users.
The number one sport is king football by a huge margin. The betting portfolio for round leather is complete. Addis betting has all important and unimportant encounters worldwide on the screen. First and foremost, of course, are the games of the national teams as well as the Champions and Europa League. But also in Africa, Asia as well as in North and South America, Addis betting is very extensive on the ball. Nationally there is a minimal focus on the domestic English and Scottish league classes, but also in USA it goes very deep into the amateur sector. Our Addis betting test showed that you sometimes even find games with the British that no other betting provider has on the screen. For example, we think of the comparisons in the national cups. Addis betting is outstanding in the depth of the betting options. The online provider even creates a unique selling point through very special markets. For example, on Addis betting you can bet on what happens in the first minute of the game:
- Throw in
- Free kick
- goal kick
- Penalty kick
The same bets are then again available in the first five minutes as an over / under version.
Tennis, basketball, ice hockey, baseball and American football are the main sports behind football. The betting offer is complete in all of the above-mentioned disciplines. Martial arts and motor sports also deserve very good grades. The certain British note is recognizable in the horse and greyhound races as well as in the Gaelic sport. Snooker, cricket or darts shouldn’t be missing either.
Of course, Addis betting can also bet “in play” live. In our experience, Addis betting live betting is not yet the ultimate in the scene. The online provider concentrates very clearly on the mainstream sports in real time. But here too there are small gaps in some places. Football, tennis and ice hockey fans will get their money’s worth live, but the offer is by no means outstanding.
It is positive that Addis betting can serve with a small but fine livestream. A few, few events can be followed free of charge via video. The stream transmissions are in no way comparable to the offers from other similar bookmaker. Overall, Addis betting still has a lot of room for improvement in the test.
The new customers will of course receive a Addis betting bonus at the start. The design of the new customer bonus differs significantly from the offers of the competitors. It starts at Addis betting not with a deposit bonus, but typically British with free bets. The new players can secure a maximum of 100 euros in free bets.
The amount of the deposit itself is irrelevant for the first course to the checkout. It is important, however, that the first deposit must be made with a credit card, PayPal, Sofortüberweisung, GiroPay or with the Paysafecard. All other transfer methods are explicitly excluded in the terms and conditions. Important: The Addis betting bonus code “ZSSOBB” must be entered when registering. Your own tips serve as the basis for calculating the free bets. You have to play five single bets from € 10 to get a free bet of € 20. Please note the minimum quota of 1.5 for the qualification tips. You can repeat the process five times within 30 days, so that you get a total of free bets of up to 100 euros.
The free bets themselves must then be played in total at a minimum odds of 1.2. There are no restrictions regarding sports, competitions and markets. However, you should know that the use of free bets always remains the property of Addis betting. If successful, you will only be credited with the net profit of the bet. This amount is not subject to any further sales regulations.
Whoever chooses Addis betting as their new bookmaker usually has one reason – the betting odds. The outstanding offers are the absolute trademark of the betting provider. In our experience in Europe, Addis betting impressively outshines all other competitors. The average quota key is above 95 percent. In the most important soccer leagues, things go even higher. Mathematical payment approaches between 98 and 99 percent are not uncommon at Addis betting, but rather the rule.
The balance of the bets is almost unique. There is no preference for favorites or outsiders. On the contrary, Addis betting sometimes even manages to offer the absolutely best betting offer on the market for several odds of a game. This fact is impressive evidence of the level at which Addis betting acts as a bookmaker. The betting offers are only slightly behind the offers from the betting exchange.
According to our Addis betting experience, the timing of the placing of tips does not matter to the British either. The betting odds are extremely stable. Even just before the start of the game, there are only minimal odds fluctuations. Since Addis betting calls up top offers across all sports, the plus in betting odds can be used even more sustainably by the leisure gamblers with the combi tips.
Security and seriousness
Regarding seriousness, there are no two opinions in the Addis betting test. The bookmaker has stood for security and fairness for years. Rip-off and fraud can be completely excluded in our experience at Addis betting. Of course, the external quality marks are also evident. Addis betting Plc has been listed on the London Stock Exchange for many years. The bookmaker’s parent company is under the strict control of the UK financial regulator. All business figures are publicly available.
Addis betting International Limited is responsible for day-to-day operations. The company is based in Malta and has a valid EU license from the local supervisory authority. The approval of the Malta Gaming Authority alone would be sufficient to classify Addis betting as safe and reputable. However, the British have by no means reached the end of the flagpole, on the contrary. Addis betting has additional regional approvals in numerous European countries.
With the new start in USA, the bookmaker has at the same time a well-known face as a business and advertising partner. Former American international Michael Ballack acts as a testimonial for English-speaking countries. We do not want to forget that Addis betting has also built a very good reputation as a sponsor. The betting provider shows its entire, top-class class. Addis betting is an official betting and advertising partner of FC Barcelona, Juventus Turin and FC Arsenal London.
In the area of payment transactions, there are clear cutbacks in the Addis betting test. Free deposits are only possible with the two e-wallets Skrill by Moneybookers and Neteller as well as with the direct booking systems of Sofortüberweisung and with GiroPay. For all other payment methods, the customer has to accept expenses at the checkout. Anyone using PayPal loses 1.5% of the deposit amount with every deposit. The same charges apply to Visa and MasterCard credit cards, including all debit versions. There is even a 2.5 percent charge for deposits made using the Paysafecard prepaid codes. Also note the different minimum and maximum deposit limits.
The payouts are made very reliably based on our Addis betting experience. The internal processing of customer requests usually only takes 24 hours. The e-wallets are operated within this time window. Bank withdrawals take a maximum of three to five working days . It should be noted that Addis betting adheres strictly to the rules of the closed money cycle. The winnings will – if technically possible – be refunded via the payment method. Bank transfers can be selected at any time as an alternative payment method. But this is exactly where there’s another little cow foot. Addis betting charges a flat fee of five percent for bank payments.
It is also important that every Addis betting customer has to verify himself before the first profit withdrawal, using the so-called KYC documents. A photo ID (passport, driver’s license, ID card) and a more recent address certificate (official registration confirmation, utility bill) must be submitted. It is advisable to have the verification carried out immediately after registration so that there are no unnecessary waiting times for the first payment.
Customer service at Addis betting starts directly on the website. Anyone who clicks on the “Help” menu will find all important information processed in a very transparent manner. Addis betting works with an extensive and very well structured FAQ section. In addition to information on deposits and withdrawals, account verification, betting rules, minimum and maximum bets, there are also countless special sports betting explanations. For example, the individual betting markets are explained in great detail. Normally, after a thorough study of the help menu, no questions should be left unanswered even by absolute beginners.
Nevertheless, there can of course be individual problems in which contact with support remains inevitable. Addis betting works with a knowledgeable, English-speaking and very friendly service team. If you need the answers very quickly, you should use the live chat. Classic email support can also be used for more detailed inquiries. The response time at this point is appealing with up to a maximum of eight hours. However, Addis betting does not use a telephone hotline.
Sports betting app
If you want, you can of course place your tips with Addis betting at any time on the go via smartphone or tablet. With regard to the presentation of the betting offer, the British are even better positioned on the move. The Addis betting app is much easier to use than the desktop version. There are no restrictions with regard to the offers. All sports, competitions, betting markets and options can also be accessed on the go. Of course, this also applies to live betting. Even the streams can be received on the go. The main side functions are integrated in the app. Deposits and withdrawals are possible as well as new registrations.
Technically, Addis betting relies on classic, native apps. The Addis betting mobile app can be downloaded via iPhone, iPad and Android. IOS device users can find their version in the App Store. If you have an Android smartphone or tablet, you can pull down its version from the homepage.
