1xBet Sports Review
1xBet sports is a young but ambitious Russian sportsbook, which aims to provide one of the most comprehensive online betting sites on the internet. The site was established in 2012 and is licensed in Curacao, but with over 1,000 betting shops, 1xBet has plenty of experience in the sector.
The bookmaker is characterised by an incredible range of options which are intended to make it stand out from the crowd. The website is available in a staggering 42 languages and accepts many different currencies, including bitcoin. There are over 1,000 events to bet on each day, and as well as being one of the first to price up events, 1xBet also offers some of the highest odds. It has hundreds of markets on the top football matches and sporting events, and offers odds on a huge glossary of sports as well as financials, casinos games, bingo, lotteries and more.
In short, 1xBet is full of variety options, and it’s fast-growing reputation is well deserved.
Range of Promotions
New 1xBet customers can claim a welcome bonus of 100% up to €100 (or equivalent currency) on their initial deposit. The sign-up offer can be activated with a minimum deposit of just €1 and bonus funds are credited to your account immediately. Before withdrawing, bonus funds must be rolled over at least five times on accumulators of at least 3 selections. At least 3 events in the accumulators must have minimum odds of -250 . (Terms and conditions apply).
These include a free to enter toto competition, where customers have to select the outcome of 12 matches and bonuses are awarded for 8 or more correct results. 100% bet insurance where you can insure your stake in case of a losing bet. A betslip battle in which anyone placing a bet at odds of +2900 or more can earn bonuses from a pooled jackpot. And an accumulator of the day, which gives you 10% additional winnings.
There are fantasy football competitions where you can earn a share of a daily $700 prize, as well as bonuses for a series o losing bets. If you lose 20 successive bets at $2 or more, you will receive a $100 bonus; and if you lose 20 bets at $5 or more, you can claim a $250 bonus. Another great promotion is ‘Advancebet’ where you can place bets with your potential winnings ahead of the result. So if you have unsettled bets running in your account, you can place bets with the potential winnings rather than topping up your account again.
The range of promotions is truly excellent.
Mobile Apps & Web Design
1xBet has developed apps for Android, Windows and iOS, making it fully mobile compatible. The website is logically laid out, but does feel a little cluttered and confusing. This may be because there is so much to choose from at 1xBet, but beginners may struggle, and even experienced online punters might take some time to get used to the user interface.
Immediately on the left is a column showing various countries where you can click a flag to change the language. The next column lists all the sports that you can bet on, and these can be filtered by day, hour, or a search function. The main central display area of the screen is reserved for showing the events and odds when you select a particular match or game. By default this area displays live and up coming events, as well as adverts and the 1xBet accumulators of the day. Over to the right is the bet slip and more links to new games and promotions.
It’s the central display area that could be less cluttered, as it shows a variety of markets on each event with too many odds displayed. However, if you can get past this and focus on the content, it will be worth your while. Each live game or event has a stylish graphical representation of the action, and plenty of sport can be watched on site via live streaming.
Incredible Sports Coverage
The latest Champions League matches at the time of our review had up to 955 markets on each different match. That’s a huge range of betting options compared to most sportsbooks which tend to have 100-200 markets at most. As mentioned, 1xBet provide odds for over 1,000 different events on a daily basis and almost every sport is covered. Football, Tennis, Ice Hockey and Basketball are listed as the most popular sports, but you can also bet on anything else from Formula One to MMA or eSports. The book is lacking in horse racing action, but that’s the only negative when it comes to the choice of sports to bet on.
To back up the selection of sports, the site also features a search-based results service and a statistics section to help you analyse your bets. The odds listed are regularly higher than many online bookmakers, and that in itself is a good enough reason to sign up with 1xBet.
Banking, Languages and Support
With so many different languages and currencies accepted, 1xBet is quickly gaining more and more customers who appreciate the diversity. Multiple payment methods are also accepted, and this makes it much easier to deposit and withdraw money wherever you are in the world. No charges are made for deposits or withdrawals, although some payment operators add their own transaction fees.
Support is 24 hours a day via email, phone or live chat, and you can even request a call back from a customer service agent by clicking a button at the top of the website. You can change the odds display and time zone on site, and there are handy guides to placing bets and using the site.
Overall 1xBet has a very impressive array of services, and as the company owns over 1,000 betting shops and operates worldwide, it is reputable enough to feel secure about. Where 1xBet excels is in the sheer number of sports and betting markets, and the competitive odds it offers. The site is slightly difficult to navigate initially, but it still scores highly due to the amount of variety it provides across its betting services.
