NetBet are among a number of bookies who have been around for a while and yet are still working very hard to try and compete with the big boys. They may not be the most well known bookie out there but in our NetBet review we point out the reasons why they are well worth considering both for new and experienced punters.
NetBet are a truly global betting company. Since being founded in 2001 they've set up subsidiaries operating in numerous countries most notably France, Italy, Israel and Britain. Although their offering changes slightly depending on the target market (they operate in 11 different languages), NetBet maintain high standards across the board. It's those high standards along with some smart acquisitions that have seen NetBet grow their customer base into the millions of users.
By utilising some excellent software providers for their sports betting and casino products (iSoftBet is the platform on which sportsbook operates) NetBet provide a fast, reliable service upon which they add their own odds, in-play betting markets and tempting promotions.
Despite an impressive customer base and the exposure they've gained from sponsorship deals including on West Brom's shirt, NetBet are still very much looking to show more people what they're all about. To help in that quest, NetBet have a generous 100% first bet welcome bonus of up to £25.
To take advantage of this free bet offer you first have to ensure you've never had an account with NetBet. If that's the case, simply open an account with NetBet through one of the links on our site and make sure that your very first bet is a single of at least £10 at odds of 1/2 (1.5) or greater. NetBet will then credit your account with a free bet of the value of that first qualifying bet up to a maximum of £25.
As well as this welcome bonus, NetBet also have many long running promotions for their loyal users. Sign up and you can take advantage of a £10 free bet for your first mobile bet, daily NetBet Boosts across a selection of sports and the handy Add2Bet feature which allows you to add new selections to unsettled bets.
NetBet have to be congratulated for one of the best looking websites of any bookmaker. The use of colours, fonts, images and graphics combined with the logical layout makes the NetBet homepage very appealing on the eye. It's far from just a pretty looking site though.
The NetBet front page does a very good job of displaying a huge amount of information without looking cluttered. The designers have managed to fit in links to the various sections of the site, account information, a list of the sports offered, the bet slip, details of the latest offers, a host of markets currently being traded in-play and a list of the most profitable NetBet customers over the last week, month and year.
Navigating around NetBet site is made all the easier thanks to a search bar and when you get to individual event pages the markets are just as well organised and easy to read as you'd expect from the rest of the site. The addition of a blog, live scores and results further helps punters in their search for winners.
NetBet price up markets across a large selection of markets. As well as the major sports such as football, tennis and golf (which are all served by a good selection of markets) you can also bet on sports as diverse as beach volleyball, chess and even eSports.
That market selection is backed by some decent value. NetBet fare well in odds comparisons against even the biggest bookies thanks to mainly fair margins across their whole sportsbook. It's also worth pointing out that their in-play offering is particularly impressive.
NetBet don't currently offer any live streaming.
Given that they have a promotion offering a £10 free bet when you place your first mobile bet, you'd be correct to assume that NetBet are pushing their mobile betting platform. Their mobile site and apps work on iOS and Android devices and are both fast and reliable.
NetBet make full use of the technology available to offer their customers control of their betting via their Cash Out feature. Use it and you can choose to completely trade out of positions on numerous sports or only partially cash out to remove some liability and retain some risk.
NetBet's head offices are in Malta and are therefore they're licensed and regulated there. They also hold a license from the UK Gambling Commission which is the body who ensure bookies are fit and proper and that they deal with customers' money and information securely.
Part of the demands of the licenses held by NetBet ensure that they have enough money to payout every bet they take and that they ringfence customers' funds. In addition, NetBet use state of the art encryption to secure payments which can be made through debit and credit cards, Neteller, Entropay, Paysafecard, PayPal, Skrill and others.
NetBet understand that betting can be a complicated business and that problems crop up from time to time so they've invested a lot of time and money into their customer service department. They are contactable 24/7 via email while their phone and live chat operatives can quickly sort any issues from 12:00 to 20:00 UK time.
