Nordicbet Sportsbook Review
Nordicbet is one arm of the Nordic Gaming Group plc, which was set up in 2005 and acquired by Betsson AB in summer of 2012 for around £50.9m. Nordicbet itself was launched in 2002 and aimed to provide Nordic customers with the option to bet on the sports and leagues they cared about such as domestic Scandinavian football competitions and local sports such as Pesapallo. Nordicbet calls itself the original Scandinavian sportsbook.
It has since grown to include more countries in Europe such as Germany and the Czech Republic.
Accessing the Nordicbet home page pushes you to select one of its language options to continue; these are English, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Czech, German, Swiss and Austrian.
Nordicbet has various Twitter accounts focused on local markets such as NordicBetSV and NordicBetSuomi. These accounts tend to have followers in the low thousands and target their local markets with focused promotions.
Nordicbet is an official partner of the Champions Hockey League; Europe’s biggest ice hockey competition. Nordicbet also sponsors the Visma Ski Classics and various sports teams throughout the countries it operates in such as Jokerit in the KHL.
The Nordicbet blog adds another layer to the site though it could be more regularly updated.

Live betting with Nordicbet is also complemented by live scores courtesy of Score24.com, and you can bet in-play on mobile and desktop.
Usability of the site
The Nordicbet site is well designed, modern and impressive. The sportsbook tab includes a search function too which improves navigation no end.
Nordicbet customer support includes a comprehensive Help Centre which features numerous FAQs which are particularly well organised. Nordicbet customer support is also available 24/7 via live chat, email and phone. There are a range of promotions on the Nordicbet desktop site for its sportsbook, poker and casino products.
There’s a Nordicbet mobile app which is excellent for betting on the go, or whilst out and about.
Nordicbet is Scandinavia’s number one sportsbook and since 2002 has come on leaps and bounds to offer the great end user experience that it does today. There’s a Nordicbet app to enhance the overall offering, a range of Nordicbet bonuses and promotions and live betting on the site is excellent too.
Customer support on Nordicbet is strong and available 24/7, via social media it focuses promotions to local markets and also sponsors local teams and competitions in ice hockey and other popular Scandinavian sports. It’s overall an excellent betting operator if you’re from one of the countries it’s aimed at, and live streaming and a number of promotions make it worth at least a pit stop.
