This is a pretty solid sportsbook and sports betting site. It seems to fit very well with people who like to bet on football, as the event coverage for major football events is good. Plenty of different football leagues are available to choose from, so this means dozens of games that can be bet on each day.
Something this site offers that many do not, is an excellent in-play service offering. One of the best around actually, this means that you can bet on games that are already being played. Although of course, odds will be different than they were before kickoff. If you combine the in-play betting with the live console that actually updates game stats and information on the fly, then this becomes a very exciting sports betting site to take a flutter at.
For New Customers
New members who sign up for Bet at Home, instantly qualify for a 50% deposit match bonus of up to a maximum of 50 Euros. The way this works is that when the new member makes their first deposit, they enter the bonus code “FIRST” when they deposit funds for the first time. They will then receive free cash up to 50 Euros.
However, this free cash can’t be withdrawn straight away. It needs to be wagered four times over before it can be withdrawn.
The company that operates this site is part of the Mangas Gaming Group. This is a French company that is also the owner of BetClic, Expekt, and Everest Poker. Something interesting about Mangas Gaming Group is that they are licensed on both sides of the Atlantic. In Malta and Khanawake. For European punters, this means that this is a very safe and secure site to bet at. For Canadian punters, the situation is the same.
The holding company itself is listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange as a joint shareholding venture. Since it was established in 1999 the company now turns over more than 670 million Euros a year and serves over 1.8 million customers across Europe.
Currently, the Bet at Home com site makes around 1,000 different event markets available. However, over 75% of these are football/soccer related. It is important to remember that this is a European sports betting company, so the events on offer are focused more on European markets. So don’t expect much in the way of basketball and hockey here. Football, rugby, and cricket are much more common. That being said, there is also some ice hockey coverage and also handball and volleyball.
Bets available are quite plentiful and often unique. Not simply bet to win style bets, but also goal predictions, player performance predictions etc. However, it should be said that this site tends to be quite conservative when it comes to odds for some of the more exotic bets, so take care if you decide to wander off into speculative betting land here.
With an over round of around 110%, the odds here are a little lower than average. But this is a site aimed squarely at punters who bet for fun, professional gamblers would probably need to find a site with slightly better odds on offer.
The Bet at Home Website
The website itself is pretty good. Especially the actual homepage. So much detailed information is made available right on the homepage, it acts like a sports betting portal. Up and coming events are listed clearly. Also, top bets are displayed as well as a good selection of in-play options for events currently taking place. Also, there are quick links to last minute bets for events that are just about to start.
The odds ticker for each betting market is very cool. It changes in real time as events take place and results are received. This might seem like a small feature but in reality, it really helps punters gauge which betting markets are currently vibrant.
Top level markets are shown in the menu and for example clicking on soccer will show all of the soccer/football leagues that have events available for betting on. It can take quite some time to locate the exact football league you are looking for as there are so many but overall it works pretty well this way.
Overall, the site is laid out well and it is very easy to navigate. However, a final note here about the Bet at Home mobile app. This app does not give access to the full sports betting features of the site, only a selection of the online casino games.
Customer support here is exceptional. Firstly, there is plenty of educational material and an excellent self-help FAQ section.
Secondly, the actual customer service department is very easy to contact using either email or telephone. There is also a very useful live chat support available 24/7. Most questions are aimed to be answered within 24 hours and often much sooner.
50 Euros Free Every Day
Each day, the site gives away 50 Euros to a "Winner of the day". The punter who receives this free 50 Euros is selected randomly from all people that have won a bet sometime within the previous 24 hours. The selection is made at one minute to midnight. The winner is automatically credited with the 50 Euros.
