When Betsson, then still under the old name Betandwin, first saw the light of day in Vienna in 1998, hardly anyone could have predicted the bookmaker’s unique path to success. No other sports betting provider has shaped the local scene more than Betsson. Even the absolute layman is well known to the Austrians. The word “gigantic” gains new meaning at Betsson.
Over 22 million customers have already gained experience with Betsson. The online provider has developed into one of the largest global players on the international gaming scene. The seriousness of Betsson is completely out of the question.
In the following Betsson test report we want to focus primarily on practical things. Is Betsson really as “awesome” as claimed? What quality of service is offered? What deposit methods are available and are they free? What betting bonus will new customers be greeted with? At what level are the betting odds? You can read our complete Betsson experiences on these and other questions below.
The Betsson betting offer
Our Betsson experience with the betting range was outstanding. There is always a little bit more. In terms of quantity, Betsson impressively outshines all competitors. Throughout the year, Austrians quote events from over 90 sports . On average, Betsson places more than 60,000 individual bets on a daily basis on. Logically, the bookmaker dino cannot ignore the wishes of the customers. In the first place at Betsson is clearly the king of football. The online provider is involved in all major leagues worldwide, including the less important competitions, of course. Second is tennis on foot. Ice hockey, basketball and volleyball are also very extensive. The betting offer for American disciplines such as baseball, American football or rugby can also impress. The Austrians have also enormously expanded the section of horse betting. Exotics such as chess, speedway or water polo can be found in the frame area. The social and political offers must not be missing at Betsson either.
The bookmaker is again setting standards in the depth of the betting options. The matches of the major football leagues are equipped with 180 to 200 specials per match.
Betsson live betting
Our Betsson live betting experiences are top. The Betsson live center is visually and technically the ultimate. A highlight in our Betsson test. No other online provider has a similarly attractive real-time platform. A special feature is the “one-click” function , with which the tips can be placed with just one touch of the odds.
The betting offer couldn’t be better. Betsson not only tries to quote the mainstream sports in real time, but also numerous exotic ones. However, the king of football and tennis still comes first. When it comes to round leather, the online provider goes very far. There are even friendly games and youth leagues with live odds.
The highlight is without question the in-house TV channel. Betsson broadcasts well over 30,000 sporting events in the livestream each year . Even the soccer Bundesliga flickers on the customers’ screens, provided they are not in America. The transmissions are of course free of charge. Betsson only prescribes a positive betting account balance.
Betsson betting bonus
Our Betsson experience with the Betsson bonus can be rated as average. New customers start at Betsson with a deposit doubling of up to 50 euros. The betting bonus requires a minimum deposit of ten euros within 90 days of registration and is linked to super simple framework conditions.
The start-up capital, i.e. deposit and bonus, must only be played through three times in order to reach maturity. The special highlight here is that Betsson does not have a minimum quota. The rollover conditions must be met within one year.
The Betsson bonus only applies to the sports betting area. Transferring the funds to the online casino or the poker arena is prohibited. Only new customers residing in USA, France, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Luxembourg are eligible.
Betsson betting odds
The betting odds, however, are less pleasing. At this point, Betsson is resting somewhat on its own laurels. The quota key ranges between 92 and 93 percent on average . In comparison, Betsson only achieved a midfield position. On a positive note, however, it must be mentioned that the offers are generally quite solid. The decline in quotas for the less important sporting events is limited. There is also no preference for favorites or outsiders.
In order to give you a better overview of the Betsson betting odds, we have chosen three examples from the offer at random:
Soccer U21 European Championship
Portugal – Germany 3.20 – 3.20 – 2.40 odds: 95.88%
Tennis WTA Wimbledon
Alison Riske – Lucie Safarova 3.0 – 1.36 odds: 91.91%
European Basketball Championship Women
Turkey – Russia 2.0 – 1.78 odds: 94.16%
Withdrawing and depositing at betsson.com
Withdrawals are generally free of charge at the bookmaker betsson, regardless of which payment method is used. There are usually no processing fees for deposits, the infamous exception with a 2.5 percent fee is once again credit card payments . At betsson, deposits and withdrawals can be made by bank transfer, and prepaid providers such as Ukash and paysafecard can also be used for deposits . Only payment service providers Skrill by Moneybookers are equally recommended for deposits and withdrawals and Neteller. Unfortunately PayPal is not in the program.
The betting provider Betsson is absolutely competitive with its apps, whereas the bookmaker, unlike most other providers, relies on classic download versions. The reason for this is the fact that the mobile sports betting versions also include the casino sector at the same time. The Betsson apps are available for all iOS devices with system version 7.0 or higher and for all newer Android phones. The apps are available in numerous language versions and of course include the complete range of bets including live bets. New registrations are possible at any time, as well as deposits and withdrawals. The Betsson app for smartphones and tablets was particularly convincing in the test due to its ease of use.
Service and support
The customer support of the bookmaker betsson is traditionally good and can be contacted on numerous channels: by email, on the phone with a free 0800 number or via a modern live chat function. While English-speaking customer support is available around the clock, support is available during peak hours, but the bottom line is sufficient. The bookmaker’s live chat, named betsson Chatline, is available between 10:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. Anyone who has a question outside of these times will either be referred to the English-language support or can send the question, which I hope is not too urgent, to [email protected]
Incidentally, not all questions have to be asked directly to customer support, because many questions have already been asked many times by other customers. The answers to such FAQs (frequently asked questions) betsson neatly put together in a corresponding area on betsson.com. Customers will find helpful answers there on the following topics: – General – Sports betting – Casino and live casino – Slot machines and games – Bingo and scratch cards – Poker – Deposits and withdrawals – Everything related to the existing customer program betsson VIP Club.
If you want to see it positively, the introduction of the 5 percent betting tax on the market is a good sign, because the exciting world of sports betting is finally emerging from the gray area. For many bookmakers and sports bettors, however, a year after the introduction of the betting tax in July 2012, the anger about falling profit margins and lower betting rates due to the tax burden predominates. Luckily, the bookmaker betsson does not join this choir and has until now decided to pay all the betting tax itself!
At betsson.com, just like the bookmakers Ladbrokes and Tipico , you can bet without fear of betting tax. Betting Comparison.netshows you the whole thing on a bet with odds of 2.00. In the time before the introduction of betting tax: bet: 100 € odds: 2.0 possible profit: 200 € The bookmaker betsson ensures that nothing changes for us sports bettors even after the introduction of the 5% betting tax in the market: bet: 100 € Quote: 2.0 possible profit: 200 € Top, I would like to give the Swedish sports betting provider an excellent rating!
The additional betsson offers
The bookmaker betsson, the company name already makes it clear, is a sports betting specialist. Why this provider on betsson.com with bingo, casino, live casino, online slot machines, poker (a Betsson poker app is also offered by the way) and scratch cardsnevertheless presents an additional offer that is as extensive as it is thrown together, is not so clear. Less would be more here. The most interesting thing for passionate sports bettors is the poker offer from betsson, for two reasons: Poker, like sports betting, is about skill, experience and mathematical skills. And the poker rooms at betsson.com were only recently opened, so there are substantial welcome bonuses with which the bookmaker wants to quickly increase the number of customers in the poker segment. Not all additional offers can be found on betsson.com, by the way, if you have already taken a cruise, you may have encountered betsson’s offline activities in the form of a betting lounge on a ship.
Betsson was one of the big online bookmakers from the very beginning and can be classified as absolutely trustworthy when it comes to seriousness. The over 20 million satisfied customers mentioned at the beginning speak volumes. We still want to mention the external quality features. Since the merger with Party Gaming 2011, the shares of Betsson Holding have been traded on the London Stock Exchange. In previous years the company was listed on the Vienna Parket. Betsson currently employs over 3,000 people and has branches around the world. The official EU sports betting license comes from the regulatory authorities in Gibraltar. The approval is granted by ElectraWorks Limited, a 100% Betsson subsidiary.
The sponsor activities are without a doubt a special seal of approval for the betting provider . Betsson plays in the Champions League, literally. The online bookmaker is a partner of Real Madrid, Juventus Turin, FC Bayern Munich, Manchester United, RSC Anderlecht and Olympique Marseille. Furthermore, Betsson is involved in motor sports and basketball.
