Tiplix Sportsbook Review
Tiplix is a German online and physical betting shop that welcomes British customers. Formed in 2009 they are licensed in the EU gaming hub of Malta. Originally known as SJBEt, they changed their name and can look back on a wealth of experience in the Betting industry. This experience and their established industry position renders them very safe for customers, as you can guarantee they are not a scam site that could disappear overnight with your deposits. The website interface is offered in German, English, Italian and Turkish, and has a real mainland Europe edge to its sport offerings.
They do not offer the chance to play in Bitcoin, but do offer the usual payment processors including: Neteller, Skrill, Msstercard, Paysafecard, and a few others. Of course if you wish to avoid eWallets, you can deposit using debit and credit cards.
Tiplix specialises in German football where it covers five amateur leagues in addition to the professional ones, and indeed most of European football. The range of bets is extensive because in addition to the classic sports you can also bet on more obscure sports like Pessapallo, Beach Volleyball, and Futsal – as well as a wide range of Virtual, Horse and Greyhound racing. Overall Tiplix offers over 1000 bets every day, whilst this may sound very high it is only around average and for its non-football based markets it is distinctly average. That said, it is a German company focusing primarily on German football, for which they do offer incredible depth.
They do also offer a big virtual market in which they offer a Virtual European football League that includes almost all European Capital teams. At first look this is fairly surreal with a live stream of what looks like a quite old game of FIfa being played. However, it’s not really any different to the virtual racing you find on some bookmaker sites.
The array of offers in the live betting part of the website is overall fairly convincing in terms of how many live games they offer. In this respect Tiplix is supremely impressive. Betting fans will find a big selection of sports and betting options. However, it does again highlight that the focus is on primarily on football. Despite this, you can still bet on other sports live and in-play, they are just less plentiful than football matches.
Tiplix has put more thought into the mobile gaming experience than your average online sportsbook. Punters can use a mobile website for free and although there is no downloadable app all they need to have access is an internet connection. This website can be used on all mobile Apple, Android and Windows devices. No download is necessary. Even the betting line is one on one identical with the website. So the customers can also place their bets on the go.
One of the main issues with Tiplix is the poor customer support. They offer no live chat support, which more or less comes as standard with online bookmakers nowadays. They also do not offer an phone line. Instead they offer a email address that can only answer queries in German or English. That said, they do offer a pretty extensive FAQ section.
Sign up Bonus
New Customers at Tiplix will receive a 50 percent bonus. In order to cash out with this you will have to roll it over with a minimum offs of 2.10 at least five times in their sportsbook.
Overall Tiplix is a strong, reliable, trustworthy and pretty decent sportsbook. The odds are pretty good generally and if you want to bet on football – particularly German football – then look no further than Tiplix. However, if you want to bet on wider sports then this site is not an industry leader. Their sign up bonus is also lacking compared to others because of its payout intricacies. However, this is a good and trustworthy sportsbook for the football gambler.
