BetFinal Sportsbook Review
Betfinal joined the online bookmaker industry in 2015, and is owned by Final Enterprises with its license being held in the Caribbean on the island of Curacao. Betfinal claim on their website to love not only gambling but also technology, with the lovechild of such an affair allegedly being a small but ‘highly skilled workforce with long experience’. They also claim that their interest in technology adds an innovative edge and ‘huge live betting’ opportunities to their sportsbook. In such a contested market claims like these are ten a penny, but is Betfinal a bookmakers of their word?
Still in its infancy this bookmaker lacks the plethora of online reviews from gamblers that older bookmaker’s enjoy, that said early signs are promising in terms of fairness and ethical practice with no negative postings in online forums or review sites. Their casino features employ two of the most trusted software providers in the online casino industry – NetEnt and Microgaming – meaning that players can be sure of randomness and unbiased games.
Betfinal also has a pretty large array of nations from which players can’t sign up, including some of the bigger gambling nations with: Australia, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Spain, Israel, Italy, UK, Russia and the United States all unable to play. This must hamper their clientele numbers, yet perhaps with their above-mentioned small team this allows them to offer a better product. With that in mind they offer their bonuses and promotions to be eligible: Finland, Germany, Canada, Switzerland, Austria, Sweden, Norway and New Zealand. With the site usable in English, Swedish and Norwegian.
Betfinal sportsbook offers a pretty extensive array of sports you can bet on, with all the regular sports present, Football, Basketball, American Football, Baseball, and Tennis. But interestingly they also offer an impressive selection of more niche options for those looking for an obscure bet. These include the options to gamble on Handball, Darts, Speedway, Beach and non-beach Volleyball, Pool, Badminton, Surfing, Chess and even eSports.
Their online casino features a wealth of online slots including a Game of Thrones version; table games of roulette, blackjack and baccarat of differing varieties; video poker with All American, Tens or Better and more. Additionally there is also a live casino feature where players can engage against real life dealers.
They offer a pretty vast in-play betting options, particularly in football and Tennis where you bet on matches from, for instance, the Macedonian Women’s Football league to Hungarian cup. With less varied options in all other sports.
As with a lot of smaller bookmakers Betfinal do not have their own app for mobile betting. However, they do offer a mobile compatible website, of a respectable quality, with quick loading and the live and upcoming sporting events found easily in the middle of the screen. All in all their mobile site offers a pretty successful alternative to a fully developed app.
The customer service can be used in the three languages that the website can be operated using, English, Swedish and Norwegian. Their customer service is mainly held back by their staffing hours of 1500 to 2100 CET time Monday to Friday. This is a problem because the majority of sporting betting takes places on the weekends. They do offer live chat or email to customers, as means to reach someone but their limited staffing hours renders this of little consequence to customers with an issue on a Saturday afternoon.
Betfinal offers a pretty good package to players from selected nations, and although their customer service suffers from a lack of manpower and their bonus system is a little convoluted, you can only get a 100% initial bonus if you deposit between 10 to 100 pound, and can only be used on bets with odds of 1.90 or higher. Despite this they offer a good array of sports and seem a pretty reliable bookmakers to gamble with.
