Big Bet World Sportsbook Review
Big Bet World is an extremely new contender in the highly competitive bookmaking industry. They first appeared in 2014 and are operated by the M-Hub Gaming Operations Limited.
They are licenced and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority, and Big Bet World is currently restricted in Denmark, France, Slovenia, Turkey, United Kingdom and the United States.
Big Bet World focuses instead on the potential market available in Eastern Europe and more specifically the Baltic states. The bookmaker operates in English, German, Serbian and Croatian in order to attract players from a relatively untouched part of Europe.
The site operates its sportsbook along with options for Live Betting, a Casino, a Live Casino, Virtual Sports and Football Jackpots, with the casino being supported by the Ocatavian and Oryx gaming platforms. However the bookmakers focus lies predominantly on its sportsbook, and the other areas are not as well developed in relation to Big Bet World’s competitors.
Surprisingly Big Bet World has currently no presence on any social media platform and this should be a huge concern for a sportsbook looking to make its mark on a highly competitive industry.
Big Bet World offers fair and somewhat competitive odds with a huge amount of wager available for each sport, with the most available for Football and followed by Ice Hockey. Currently the sports available are:
Football, Basketball, Ice Hockey, Tennis, American football, Golf, Winter sports, Darts, Rugby, Handball, Aussie Rules, Bowls, Boxing, Floorball, Futsal and Table Tennis.
Although a relatively decent selection, Big Bet World seem to miss out on some key markets including for E-Sports, Cricket, Motor Racing and more. What Big Bet World instead focuses on is certain competitions that occur throughout the year offering a range of markets and wagers.
The live betting section of Big Bet World’s site is well laid out and very simple to use. Each live game has very detailed visuals available, with a range of statistics and live commentary. It is an excellent platform that does well to inform players of exactly what’s happening.
However, currently there is no cash out option available, and although there is a tab for live streaming there seems to be a very limited amount of games available to watch. Also, the overall selection of games available to place wagers on could be greatly expanded.
Usability of the site
The site feels as though a lot of care has gone into its design, and coupled with a sleek silver and black colour pattern it gives players a very enjoyable and comfortable experience. The bookmaker does however let itself down slightly with the amount of adverts located at the bottom of the page, making it feel cluttered and unfriendly.
There is mobile support available in the site and Big Bet World have designed a good, comprehensive app for Android compatible devices. They claim that iOS support is on its way.
If players run into any problems there is a dedicated 24/7 live-chat facility available, as well as e-mail support, a phone line for customer care and a contact form on the website. They are very quick and efficient when resolving any issues players have had.
Big Bet World offer some promotions including their Big Bet Bonus with offer 100% on up to 100EUR.However, this welcome bonus is only available for those in Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, and Norway. There are also loyalty bonuses available and a winnings boost if you place more bets at once.
In terms of payment methods, Big Bet World offer an okay range of options including Skrill and Neteller, but there could definitely be more options made available in the future to attract more players.
It seems as though Big Bet World have created what could be an excellent service, but let themselves down in some key areas. If they can improve their online presence to build confidence in potential players, increase their sportsbook markets and slightly improve their live betting facility then Big Bet World will be much more successful.
