X-Bet Sportsbook Review
X-Bet was established in 2014, and is part of the Galaxy Group ltd, owners of a multitude of online bookmakers and betting services. The site is fully regulated and licensed by the government of Curacao, and aims to have a special focus on the betting services around E Sports. E Sports gambling is probably the fastest growing market in this sector right now, so it makes a lot of sense that companies are trying to get on this wave and ride the boom. The bookie gets involved with sponsoring a number of E Sport tournaments and events, but lets not forget that the site also covers most of the usual real world sports, virtual sports and casino games too. X-Bet doesn’t accept all players from every country around the world, so be sure to check you can make an account by heading to the site.
X-Bet has a good quality selection of E Sports and Sports to bet on until your hearts content. For the E sports, they cover CounterStrike, DOTA 2, League of Legends and many others, with upcoming tournaments and major games featuring prominently on the site. They also offer betting on Soccer, Basketball, Tennis and more – the only notable exception here is a lack of Horse Racing, but hopefully this is added to the site at some point in the future. For both sports and E Sports, you can navigate the site via league or country, and within each specific event is a decent selection of specific betting markets to explore, definitely enough for most sports betting to be well entertained. New customers of the site can also enjoy a sign up bonus deposit match, and a risk free first bet on the site across all Sports/E Sports, definitely a big pull which we’re sure will bring in many new customers. You can place various different bet types across both betting markets and sports too, rounding off a pretty decent and balanced Sportsbook. If your sports aren’t currently taking place any time soon, the site also offers Virtual Sports betting across a few select sports too with very short times until a bet is either won or lost.
X-Bet also has a Live Betting section on its online platform, covering all the events that are happening this very moment across the world. Again, E Sports games feature prominently here, with the ability to Live Stream the events through X-Bet definitely taking that excitement factor to the next level. This Live Streaming function is seamless and really adds to the action as a result. The odds update in real time, so be sure to get your bets placed quickly if you like what you see, as E Sports games can move fast and unpredictably.
The X-Bet casino covers many of the more popular slots and jackpots, although a few of the best service providers are missing from the site. Even so, there’s a lot of cool slots to explore, and also the classic table games to keep almost all customers happy. A Live Casino streaming the same games is also an option if you fancy that real world touch to your gameplay, or don’t trust computer based card dealing.
Usability of the Site
X-Bet is definitely one of the slicker and more modern bookmakers in the online betting space today. The site graphics, branding and advertising integrate seamlessly across all pages, and the navigation and layout is customer focused, logical and intuitive. Customers have a range of deposit and withdrawal options to use, including popular E Wallets like Skrill, and even Bitcoin and PayPal. If you have any queries about you betting activity, you can rest assured as you’ll have a full betting history within your account area, in addition to 24/7 support via live chat, email and telephone.
In conclusion, its very difficult to raise any major negative points about X-Bet, with the only minor point being a lack of UK and Irish Horse Racing. It would be great to see a bigger variety of regular betting promotions on the site, and also some form of loyalty based payback system to maximise the number of regular returning bettors to the site.
