Netbet Sportsbook Review
NetBet was founded in 2001 and now has almost 500 employees globally across England, Italy, Romania, Israel and France.
NetBet became the official sponsor of West Brom in 2015 and a year prior it signed a similar agreement with OGC Nice. Of the West Brom deal, Alexandre Mangaud, NetBet Marketing Manager, said at the time: “We’re very proud to be partnered with West Bromwich Albion ahead of the forthcoming season. Their outstanding performances on the field last campaign show this Club is going places, and to be a part of their journey for the next 12 months gives us a great sense of pride.”
There are also partnerships in place with Saint Etienne, German club VFL Gummersbach and Romanian side FC Steaua Bucharest. You can see from the partnerships it’s invested in that NetBet is heavily targeting football bettors. More evidence of this is that Romanian football legend Dan Petrescu became a brand ambassador in September 2015.
NetBet operates social media channels on Twitter and Facebook. It has a little over 2,000 followers on Twitter whilst the Facebook page is notably more popular with almost 50,000 Likes.
NetBet has much to offer in the way of sports betting markets. All of those that it offers can be seen here:
Football, Horse Racing, Cricket, Tennis, Rugby, Darts, Rugby League, Golf, Basketball, American Football, Baseball, Ice Hockey, Handball, Snooker, Pool, Motor Racing, Cycling, Speedway, Volleyball, Boxing, Futsal, Table Tennis, Winter Sports, Badminton, Bandy, Olympic Games, Aussie Rules, MMA, E-Sports, Chess, Gaelic Football and Gaelic Hurling.
You can also bet on Politics, though these markets aren’t overly extensive, and there are some entertainment markets to boot.
NetBet offers a great range of markets for in-play betting. Head to the In-Play section and you can check it out for yourself including live statistics and graphics to help you choose your bet.
You can get match updates but there is no live streaming which lets NetBet’s live betting product down a little in comparison with others on the market, but there is a cashout option.
Usability of the site
The site is easy to navigate around, there’s a NetBet mobile app on both iOS and Android and banking options are extensive. There’s a NetBet blog which is okay but in need of some overhauling and investment in terms of design and layout. The content is solid enough, and regular too, but it’s let down by the presentation.
Promotions wise you’re able to check these easily via the link on the main homepage.
In terms of customer support NetBet has got you; the Live Chat service is reasonably fast to respond and it’s accessible between the hours of 8 am UKT and 11 pm. You also have the option of contacting them by phone; the number is +44 203 608 6024 or you can send them an email on the NetBet Help Centre form.
NetBet is a good online bookmaker with a wide range of sports betting options. The sign up bonus is good too, and the minimal wagering requirements is a breath of fresh air.
Customer support could be improved as email response times weren’t the most competitive but live chat is the main go to for most people and NetBet delivered on that count.
Overall it’s a bookmaker which is slowly extending its brand awareness and reputation and it’s worth having an account due to some generous football focused promotions.
