UPDATE: Ohmbet has suspended its operations and closed shop.
They have affirmed themselves as the Sportsbook with the best MMA odds and, like all Nordic gambling operators, excel in security, stability, payment options and speed, as well as customer support.
The website is relatively nice and clean, pretty easy to use and works well for beginners. I do feel they could have used their homepage better and structure could be better, as you have to scroll a lot in order to find less popular bet types. Overall, you should not have any problems browsing and the design is decent.
Ohmbet welcomes with a 150 euro (100%) welcome bonus, just like in the good old days of online Sportsbooks. You have to register, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org saying that you want the bonus, and then make a deposit to activate it. Rollover terms are straightforward, you have to bet the bonus amount 7 times on odds of 1.50 or higher in the space of 30 days since receiving the free bet.
Now that all sounds nice and good, but the problem is that right now (October 2018) the bonus is only available to clients residing in Brazil, Canada, Finland, Norway and Sweden. Also, you can`t claim the bonus if you deposit via Skrill, Neteller, PaySafe, Webmoney, Smartpay, Ukash or any other e-wallets.
So the bonus is exceptional for a handful of people and useless for the rest. On the bright side there are some nice UFC promotions which are available for everybody.
Odds, betting coverage & handicapping, limits
Ohmbet’s odds are average, maybe slightly below average. Handicap margins are typically 1.90 – 1.90 (which is good), but you also find lower margins like 1.85 – 1.85 sometimes. The rest of the odds follow this trend. The distribution is pretty evenly matched for all competitions, so you don`t necessarily get better odds on top events and lower odds on lesser events. However, they do have the best odds in the industry for MMA events, which is a fact, so this compensates in some way for the average prices.
ODDS UPDATE 26 July 2016: Odds have definitely improved at Ohmbet, to the point that you often find the best odds on the market for many events, from Champions League to ATP tournaments or the Swedish football league. This is mostly valid for moneyline (1×2) bets. Handicap lines remain below average though, between 1.85 – 1.85 and 1.90 – 1.90. MMA odds remain the best on the market.
Betting coverage and handicapping is actually very good. Ohmbet has over 50 sports on offer, including plenty of E-sports events, which is very impressive. A typical Australian Open match for example has about 45 betting options associated, 5 under / over lines or 6 game handicap lines. For a football example, a Bundesliga match has over 100 betting types associated, so Ohmbet is surprisingly competitive in the the market selection department. And they also have the most extensive MMA coverage.
Ohmbet does not advertise itself as a bookmaker for high rollers and it is not, but the limits are not bad, certainly better than many other popular bookmakers. Most punters will have no problem in betting their desired amount.
You can bet 1000 Eur on competitions like the Premier League or 500 Eur if odds are higher than 6.00. Even money spread in competitions like NBA or Australian Open have limits of 1000 Eur. Tennis challengers for example have a set limit of 700 Eur, which can go as low as 200 Eur if the odds are over 3.50, depending on the match.
The above are fixed, definite amounts, but if you want to bet more, you can check the “Super bet” box in your betting slip, bet as high as 3000 euro and your bet will be manually reviewed. Ohmbet promises that they are currently (29.01.2016) in the process of tripling their limits.
UPDATE: Limits increased!
Live betting, mobile betting
Betting in play at Ohmbet provides a good experience for the user. In a slow Thursday afternoon you get over 50 events to bet on with plenty of betting options. For example, the live platform provides competitions like Bahrain second division with 50 betting options attached for an event. The in play platform is very well integrated and visible, providing you with the in play matches, a live betting calendar and a multiview option in which you can select the live events that interest you.
You can access Ohmbet in mobile version from any mobile device. Their platform is ok, nothing to shout about really. Nothing particularly special about it, but it does the job just like any other mobile website in the industry.
Customer support and banking
As it’s the case with most Nordic Sportsbooks, customer support and banking / payments are a strong point for Ohmbet.com.
Client assistance is really top notch, I was impressed by my experience with them. Very fast and useful e-mail response 24/7 from all departments and I even talked with them via phone / skype, where they answered all my questions in flawless English. Ohmbet also provides Live Chat option and a helpful FAQ. You also get a feedback section, so Ohmbet deserves an A+ rating in the support department, there’s no doubt about that. Truly one of the best support I received in all my years of online betting.
Deposits and withdrawal options include Bank Transfer, Credit Card, Skrill (Moneybookers), Neteller, Ukash, Webmoney, Moneta, Qiwi, Yandex, AstroPay or Eco. Payout time is fast, as the tradition stands with Nordic operators. They have a random process of asking for identification, meaning you might or might not need to send documents.
You can deposit as low as 5 USD.
Ohmbet bookmaker review
Ohmbet is not Pinnacle or Bet365 and they know it. Their objective is to focus on what they do best and be market leaders in that department. As such, Ohmbet is definitely the best MMA Sportsbook in the industry and they can also go toe to toe with anybody in terms of Customer support, banking or market selection. Odds can be improved and Ohmbet says they are working on it, limits could be slightly higher on lower competitions.
Overall, a safe, secure and honest bookmaker which delivers what it promises and will surely provide a pleasant surprise to its customers. 4 stars out of 5 is an accurate rating of Ohmbet.
