NetBet Offers & Review - October 2021
Despite only being founded in 2001, NetBet have quickly gained prominence and popularity, with the bookmaker proving to be one of the most popular choices for betting on a range of sports. With an impressive variety of markets and features at their disposal, NetBet have firmly placed themselves in the upper-echelons of sports betting.
NetBet Welcome Offer
When you decide to sign up with NetBet you will be given the opportunity to opt into their welcome offer which is currently a £30 in free bets and spins offer. You can qualify for the free bet and free spins promotion once your first £30 qualifying bets on sports have been placed and then settled on the account.
Customers will then be awarded £15 in free bets and £15 in free spins for casino and vegas. Your qualifying bet can be on any sport and can be either single or a single line multiple bet with two selections or more. Cashed out qualifying bets do not qualify for this offer.
You need to ensure you place your qualifying bet within seven days of registration and the bet must settle within this period to release the free bet and spins automatically. Bets placed/settled outside of this timeframe will need the free bet/spins to be credited manually.
Your free bets can then be used on one acca of two selections or more, one virtual sports market of your choice and one on any sports market of your choice. These free bets are valid for three days each with a maximum of three £5 free bets applied per account, while the free bet stake will not be included in any winnings. Ensure you do not deposit using Neteller, PayPal, or Skrill as these deposit methods are not eligible for this promotion.
For the casino free spins, the spins are only playable on selected slots including Starburst and Scudamore's Super Stakes. Winnings from free spins will automatically be transferred as bonus money once all free rounds have been played and must be wagered 40 times before the bonus winnings become convertible into cash.
For the vegas free spins, there are 25 free spins with £5 (£0.20 per spin) which will instantly be added to your account after your first sport has settled. These free spins are playable only on selected slot Age of the Gods. Free spins must be wagered 50 times before bonus winnings are converted into cash.
The £30 welcome offer is a pretty generous one if you are inclined to playing on both the sportsbook and casino. However, if you are only looking to bet on sports then you will have to stake £30 in order to release £15 worth of free bets which technically means that offer would be 50% up to £15, which is a lot less generous. If playing on multiple types of products is your thing then NetBet's welcome offer is great but, as stated, if you are only looking to bet on sports then there are better welcome offers out there.
Sports & Markets
NetBet offers a range of sports and markets for you to sink your teeth into, with the bookie providing you with all you need when it comes to betting on a sportsbook. At the time of writing, NetBet offer just short of 30 sports for you to bet on with these ranging from the bigger ones like horse racing and cricket to more niche sports like volleyball and table tennis.
As with nearly all bookmakers, football is NetBet's biggest offering. A range of leagues from a number of nations all feature on the site and this is not confined to England and the Premier League. The K-League from Korea, Turkey's Super Ligi and Norway's 1st Division are among many other leagues available, with NetBet offering markets on over 35 different competitions on that day alone.
Clicking on the Premier League will reveal how many games are currently available to bet on that day with the slider at the top providing you with the ability to choose which day and event you want to bet on. Any popular Premier League match will usually have around 200+ markets to bet on and these range from the standard match winner and total goals to more niche markets like Asian Handicap and the amount of corners there will be.
Many of the top sports and matches will also come with an impressive offering of statistics. Clicking on the image of the bar graph next to the game for a Premier League match will reveal stats on both sides and their recent form, last meetings, top scorers, top assisters, most cards and injuries too. This sort of information can really aid customers in making a well informed bet on any given match.
NetBet will also provide you with the ability to bet on Political events aside from sport. These will usually include odds on the next President of the United States and the next Prime Minister of the UK with these sorts of markets often attracting a lot of attention, especially when the results are close to being announced.
NetBet's offering of Esports markets is one of the most impressive in the industry today. At the time of writing, the Esports tab in the left-hand menu had an impressive 166 available events to bet on which was second to only football, greyhounds and virtual sports. Clearly, NetBet have seen that Esports are quickly rising in prominence and they have ensured they populate their site with betting on the most popular games including League of Legends, CS:GO, DOTA 2 and Valorant.
In-Play markets are located at the top of the page making it very easy to find. This page contains tabs for overview, event view, live schedule, live score and results. This is a farily standard In-Play section for the industry and does not offer anything groundbreaking, although it does give you all you could ask for when betting. Perhaps the most important section here is the schedule itself which will allow you to keep on top of all of the upcoming events so that you will not miss that one game you wanted to bet on.
At this time NetBet do not offer a live streaming function meaning that if you need to be able to watch the sport in order to enjoy it fully, then NetBet are not for you. Of course, this does not mean that NetBet will not ever incorporate a live streaming feature so it is worth checking back here on to stay up to date on this.
NetBet's request a bet offering comes in the form of their bet maker. To create your own bet you must make an initial single selection which will then prompt the site to offer you a range of additional markets on the game or event you are betting on. This will create an accumulator with instant pricing and one-click betting, which eliminates the need to access the bet slip.
Standard markets like match winner, goals, corners, goal scorers and many other markets are all available to be used in the bet maker making this a very intuitive bet creation system. To start this process you simply need to go to your desired event and click on the 'create bet maker' button which will filter the markets so you are aware of what you can bet on. You can make up to six selections from the offered markets. From there, the odds of the bet maker will automatically be calculated and you will simply need to enter your desired stake and click 'place bet maker'.
Best Odds Guarantee
While NetBet do offer competitive odds on a lot of UK and Irish horse racing and greyhound racing, they do not offer a best odds guarantee at this time.
Customers of NetBet can make the most out of their Acca boost which can increase your earning potential by up to 50%. To participate in this all you need to do is sign into your NetBet account and bet on a three fold acca or more on football, tennis, basketball, ice hockey, American football or baseball. You can earn up to a 50% boost on this acca if you have 13+ selections while a three fold acca will give you a 3% boost.
NetBet also offer customers the ability to cash out on their bets. This feature enables customers to get some of their money back if you think your bet is heading for a loss. The amount you can get back depends on whether or not the bet seems likely to win or lose, with a bet that seems to be heading for a loss one that will usually offer less of a return than the initial stake.
The site itself is pretty standard, with all of the sections on site easy to locate with all of the features clearly marked at the top of the page. The homepage holds a lot of information regarding upcoming events in a range of sports and has been formatted in such a way that it is not too overbearing for new customers. For more experienced bettors there is the ability to tweak the format of the odds from fractional to decimal and American.
Negatively, NetBet do not offer 24/7 customer support. Despite this you can get in touch via email, live chat, telephone or on Twitter. Customer support is usually pretty good, but the fact they do not offer constant support is a drawback.
NetBet offer a very well-rounded sportsbook package with competitive odds and a range of sports and markets. However, they are let down in a number of key areas. Their current lack of a live streaming function is a drawback for players that want to watch and bet with the bookie while their welcome offer being split into half a sportsbook promotion and half a casino promotion will not be for everyone. Despite this, the bookmaker still give bettors nearly everything they want when it comes to the site, features and markets, and they could take a number of very positive steps with a few small tweaks to their offering.
