1Bet2Bet is a Comfortlink limited Curacao company licensed in Curacao, operating in the sportsbetting industry since 2001 and based in London, UK. Relatively unknown in the past to the global audience, 1Bet2Bet is trying to gain exposure in the sportsbetting market with improving services. The company uses top security technologies, including 128 bits encoding and an array of servers which are backed up in order to ensure that the clients’ personal information and their financial assets are fully safe.
The website has a nice, simple and fluid design, being available in a wide variety of languages, though the translation could generally be better (I can only say this about the languages I know). Browsing 1Bet2Bet makes for a nice experience both for beginners and more advanced users.
A big plus for 1Bet2Bet is that they do not have restricted countries and also accept US players.
Bonus, Mobile betting
1Bet2Bet is currently offering a great 50% first deposit bonus up to 250 €, though the rollover requirements could be better (5 to 12 the amount of the bonus of odds over 1.60, with no under/overs or asian handicap). The rollover requirements differ for customers from different countries as shown below:
- Players from UK, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Sweden Norway, Japan, Canada and Australia must roll over the deposit and bonus amount 5 times before you can withdraw winnings.
- Players from Russia, Poland, Czech and Portugal must roll over the deposit and bonus amount 8 times before you can withdraw winnings.
- Players from Belarus, Romania, Serbia, Ukraine, Hungary, Armenia, Georgia, Uzbekistan, China and rest of the world must roll over the deposit and bonus amount 12 times before you can withdraw winning
Mobile betting is one of the main advantages at 1bet2bet, with a very responsive platform available from all mobile operating systems. The in-play betting on mobile is very accessible and you also get a matching 10 euro bonus for your first bet using your phone.
Odds, betting coverage, in-play
1Bet2Bet provides the user with competitive odds. Especially on the big markets the odds are at least average, and you can find some good value on certain bets. Unfortunately the betting coverage is poor, there are mostly only big football and sports events available, with little emphasis on minor competitions. However, the betting options and types are impressive, with a very large array of handicaps, asian handicaps or under / overs.
The in-play betting is excellent in terms of speed, betting options / types available and payouts. On the other hands it fails to provide the user with minor or medium – class events, but if you are interested mostly in major markets, you will most likely find betting in-play and 1Bet2Bet extremely interesting.
Bottom line: decent odds, very good betting options, very good in-play software, poor market selection.
Banking, customer support, limits
You can deposit through Bank transfer, Visa / Mastercard, Moneybookers (Skrill), Webmoney and Cheque. The same options are available for withdrawals. Not a wide variety of payment methods, but pretty much everything you need.
The limits are rather high at 1Bet2Bet, not top class but surely above average and better than some other reputable sportsbooks.
Customer support is ok, you can contact 1Bet2Bet through e-mail and they also have the very important Live Chat option. The staff is helpful and super fast, but on the other hand sometime you may get responses in not very good english, which could give the impression of lack of professionalism. However, I have found that that is not the case, and there are many other reputable bookmakers out there who will respond to you with beginner-level english.
1Bet2Bet bookmaker review
Overall I have to say I like this bookmaker. It provides the user with a simple and fast betting environment, a good solid bonus, decent odds, good betting options and the ability to enjoy mobile and in-play betting. Though they do not have the exposure of other well known bookies, account security is excellent with serious verifications and top notch security protocols. It is safe to bet with them. 1Bet2Bet still has a lot of shortcomings in terms of betting coverage (especially) or banking, but you can see they are striving to improve and surely are a good sportsbook to open an account with. One of the solid options for beginners but also for punters who are looking mostly at the bigger events.
