When Betsson, then still under the old name Betandwin, first saw the light of day in Vienna in 1998, hardly anyone could have predicted the bookmaker’s unique path to success. No other sports betting provider has shaped the local scene more than Betsson. Even the absolute layman is well known to the Austrians. The word “gigantic” gains new meaning at Betsson.
Over 22 million customers have already gained experience with Betsson. The online provider has developed into one of the largest global players on the international gaming scene. The seriousness of Betsson is completely out of the question.
In the following Betsson test report we want to focus primarily on practical things. Is Betsson really as “awesome” as claimed? What quality of service is offered? What deposit methods are available and are they free? What betting bonus will new customers be greeted with? At what level are the betting odds? You can read our complete Betsson experiences on these and other questions below.
The Betsson betting offer
Our Betsson experience with the betting range was outstanding. There is always a little bit more. In terms of quantity, Betsson impressively outshines all competitors. Throughout the year, Austrians quote events from over 90 sports . On average, Betsson places more than 60,000 individual bets on a daily basis on. Logically, the bookmaker dino cannot ignore the wishes of the customers. In the first place at Betsson is clearly the king of football. The online provider is involved in all major leagues worldwide, including the less important competitions, of course. Second is tennis on foot. Ice hockey, basketball and volleyball are also very extensive. The betting offer for American disciplines such as baseball, American football or rugby can also impress. The Austrians have also enormously expanded the section of horse betting. Exotics such as chess, speedway or water polo can be found in the frame area. The social and political offers must not be missing at Betsson either.
The bookmaker is again setting standards in the depth of the betting options. The matches of the major football leagues are equipped with 180 to 200 specials per match.
Betsson live betting
Our Betsson live betting experiences are top. The Betsson live center is visually and technically the ultimate. A highlight in our Betsson test. No other online provider has a similarly attractive real-time platform. A special feature is the “one-click” function , with which the tips can be placed with just one touch of the odds.
The betting offer couldn’t be better. Betsson not only tries to quote the mainstream sports in real time, but also numerous exotic ones. However, the king of football and tennis still comes first. When it comes to round leather, the online provider goes very far. There are even friendly games and youth leagues with live odds.
The highlight is without question the in-house TV channel. Betsson broadcasts well over 30,000 sporting events in the livestream each year . Even the soccer Bundesliga flickers on the customers’ screens, provided they are not in America. The transmissions are of course free of charge. Betsson only prescribes a positive betting account balance.
Betsson betting bonus
Our Betsson experience with the Betsson bonus can be rated as average. New customers start at Betsson with a deposit doubling of up to 50 euros. The betting bonus requires a minimum deposit of ten euros within 90 days of registration and is linked to super simple framework conditions.
The start-up capital, i.e. deposit and bonus, must only be played through three times in order to reach maturity. The special highlight here is that Betsson does not have a minimum quota. The rollover conditions must be met within one year.
The Betsson bonus only applies to the sports betting area. Transferring the funds to the online casino or the poker arena is prohibited. Only new customers residing in USA, France, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Luxembourg are eligible.
Betsson betting odds
The betting odds, however, are less pleasing. At this point, Betsson is resting somewhat on its own laurels. The quota key ranges between 92 and 93 percent on average . In comparison, Betsson only achieved a midfield position. On a positive note, however, it must be mentioned that the offers are generally quite solid. The decline in quotas for the less important sporting events is limited. There is also no preference for favorites or outsiders.
In order to give you a better overview of the Betsson betting odds, we have chosen three examples from the offer at random:
Soccer U21 European Championship
Portugal – Germany 3.20 – 3.20 – 2.40 odds: 95.88%
Tennis WTA Wimbledon
Alison Riske – Lucie Safarova 3.0 – 1.36 odds: 91.91%
European Basketball Championship Women
Turkey – Russia 2.0 – 1.78 odds: 94.16%
Betsson deposits and withdrawals
The online provider is global. Betsson tries to present the ideal deposit option to every customer, regardless of which continent they are on. To this end, the Bookie works with numerous regional and local financial services companies. PayPal is certainly the outstanding payment method for American customers . The e-wallet has been used by Betsson for the most secure transfers for many years. Alternatives include Clickandbuy , Neteller , Skrill by Moneybookers, Moneta.ru or Webmoney . Smaller, more anonymous transfers can best be done with the Paysafecard or Ukash To run. Credit cards from Visa , MasterCard and Diners Club, including all associated debit versions with the same label, are also recognized. Bank transfers can be ideally pushed with Sofortüberweisung.de and GiroPay at real-time level. Betsson only charges deposit fees for card payments. (two percent)
The ideal payment method is the Kalixa Card, which customers can use to access their betting account twice a day. In general, the winning instructions are made in all technically possible ways, through which a deposit was made in the past six months.
Website and Betsson app
The Betsson betting portal deserves top marks. Despite the abundance of offers, customers can navigate through the portfolio in a butter-smooth manner without any difficulties. The entire homepage is designed to be functional and intuitive. Winding up the events is as easy as submitting bets. There is only one small peculiarity when changing sports. The customer must always click on “All sports” to return to the complete overview. There are also no complaints in terms of color and graphics. The black and yellow design is extremely successful.
The sports betting apps, which offer access to the entire huge betting range, are also super easy to use. The basis at Betsson is an optimized homepage version. Customers who select the Bookie in the browser from their smartphone or tablet can start right away. A classic Betsson app is also available for users of iOS and Android . The two versions have the advantage that even the livestream can be received on the go.
Like all major sports betting providers , Betsson also offers a complete package in addition to the sports betting offer. This is also how casino is offered – but not focused. As a Betsson customer, you can find everything your heart desires in the casino from poker to slot games – but discreetly.
Slot games are clearly in the foreground when it comes to casino selection and dominate classic table games such as roulette, blackjack or poker.
The Betsson customer service
Our Betsson customer service experience can be seen as very good. Measured against bet365, Ladbrokes or Interwetten, there is still room for improvement here. In our Betsson test, we found the missing live chat to be negative, which should have been standard for a long time. It is also not so easy to find Betsson’s contact information on the website. Once you have found it, you will be redirected to a contact form. Here are various questions pre-formatted from which you can choose. What was striking in our Betsson test were the long waiting times until inquiries were answered. The friendliness and the professionalism of the team are beyond doubt. At this point, the years of experience of a market leader become very clear. However, there is a bit of a lack of support. The Betsson Customer service is available by phone from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. in your language. Anyone who picks up the handset must, however, take into account the cost of a foreign call to Austria. The bookie has always worked with a landline connection in Vienna.
Betsson was one of the big online bookmakers from the very beginning and can be classified as absolutely trustworthy when it comes to seriousness. The over 20 million satisfied customers mentioned at the beginning speak volumes. We still want to mention the external quality features. Since the merger with Party Gaming 2011, the shares of Betsson Holding have been traded on the London Stock Exchange. In previous years the company was listed on the Vienna Parket. Betsson currently employs over 3,000 people and has branches around the world. The official EU sports betting license comes from the regulatory authorities in Gibraltar. The approval is granted by ElectraWorks Limited, a 100% Betsson subsidiary.
The sponsor activities are without a doubt a special seal of approval for the betting provider . Betsson plays in the Champions League, literally. The online bookmaker is a partner of Real Madrid, Juventus Turin, FC Bayern Munich, Manchester United, RSC Anderlecht and Olympique Marseille. Furthermore, Betsson is involved in motor sports and basketball.
It cannot be left out that the bookmaker also fulfills his social responsibility. In partnership with several universities, Betsson is investing considerable sums in research into gambling addiction.
Sports betting without end, one might think. But this is only one side of Betsson. Since the merger with Party Gaming at the latest, the side area has been expanded enormously. In the online casino, Betsson still trusts Gtech’s software creations, formerly Boss Media. Classic table and card games in particular are uniquely marketed in the virtual arcade. In the live casino, users have the choice between roulette, blackjack, baccarat and casino holdem. Don’t forget the poker arena, where Betsson relies on its own on game network.
Due to the seriousness and the huge betting offer, Betsson is still an absolute heavyweight in the virtual sports betting world. Hardly anything will change in the next few years. The live bets including the stream transmissions are outstanding. There are also positive grades for the extensive transfer portfolio, which is led by PayPal. The super fast and direct payouts with the Kalixa Card are the icing on the cake. In summary, the Betsson bonus is a little weak on the chest, but shines super simple free spin conditions. From our point of view, customer support needs some new fire in terms of accessibility and of course the only mediocre betting odds.
