BetAnySports Sportsbook Review
BetAnySports might be an unfamiliar name, but you can rest assured of the quality of this bookmakers as it’s a sister company of the 5Dimes Sportsbook Group and has been developed and improved for functionality and reliability over a number of years. Sadly, two key countries bringing the majority of revenue to the gambling industry, residents of the UK and France, are excluded from using this website, so if you are from one of these countries you’ll have to look elsewhere.
BetAnySport is a different beast to many of today’s bookmakers, deciding to go against the tide of user-driven and layouts and interfaces and come up with their own format. Disappointingly more work could be done on the front end of this layout – the site has an Excel Spreadsheet style feel of the 90s to it, with too many click boxes and no user-friendliness in sight. BetAnySports offer extensive levels of breadth and depth to your betting through a range of complex bet types that can be placed across multiple sports and markets. The Sportsbook offers Dynamic Lines, Parlay, Action Reverse and Futures bet types amongst many others to satisfy even the most technically demanding punter when using the online bookmaker. The combinations and depth of actual betting that can be placed on the site is surprising, no doubt this is what has kept customers returning to BetAnySport over the years.
There are two Live Betting areas on BetAnySport, Live Betting Ultra and Liver Betting Extra, which work well for customers wanting to bet on Live Events. There are no useful statistics or visual aids however so users will have to find this information elsewhere if they want to aid their betting decisions.
The online bookmaker also has a dedicated online casino broken down into two main areas, the Online Casino and Live Dealer offering live casino play to customers. There are Jackpot slots, online games and video poker to play, along side the standard Casino Table Games such as Blackjack, Baccarat and Roulette to keep the average punter playing for hours.
Usability of the Site
The usability of BetAnySport is the weakest aspect of the site; with the format and layout of the site not easily clear to the average user. The overuse of tick box buttons and lack of supporting imagery and graphics makes the site look like a snapshot back in time to websites from 10 years ago. Although not a negative in terms of actual functionality of the site, this is a big negative in keeping customers who enjoy nice graphics and a streamlined interface for their sports betting experience. The site does offer extensive detail in terms of both bet types available and the number of sports and event you can bet on – they even have a section for betting on Competitive Eating events! Sadly it is difficult to look past the layout and look of the site to see this. The casino also feels outdated and old, lacking any of the new video slots produced by NetEnt or the other industry leaders in these types of online slots.
In conclusion, BetAnySport is fairly unique in the level of detail it takes betting to in the bookmaking industry, with the range of bet types being an attractive proposition to the average gambler. However, this is let down by the outside format and layout of the site, which for most users will frustrate, irritate and push them away and to competitors.
