VBet Offers & Review - October 2021
Established in 2008, VBet have become one of the premier bookmakers in the game today. With extensive markets in football, horse racing, tennis and many other sports, VBet can offer customers some of the most competitive odds in the industry along with an impressive range of bonuses for both new and existing customers.
If you decide to sign up with VBet you will be given the opportunity to opt into their welcome offer. This new customer offer currently stands at up to £25 in free bets for all new customers.
This offers allows new customers to get a matched deposit up to £25 when they sign up. To get involved, simply open a VBet account and place an accumulator with three of more selections in it where each selection has odds of 1.8 or more. You will then have the stake of your first bet matched between £5 and £25 with a free bet that will be credited to your account. Be aware of the fact that £25 is the maximum bonus you can get meaning that if you wager £40 you will only be credited with £25 in free bets.
You may place your qualifying bet on any sportsbook section on pre-match or In-Play events as long as it is an accumulator with a minimum of three selections. You must also ensure that you do not deposit using Skrill, ecoPayz, MuchBetter, Trustly or Neteller as they will not count as a qualifying deposit method for this promotion. Any bet that uses the cash out feature, full or partial will not be counted as a qualifying bet.
This type of bet provides fairly good value to new customers and is not too difficult to get your head around. Newer customers will know that this is simply a matched deposit so whatever they stake for the first time will be matched up to £25. For more experienced bettors this promotion provides fairly decent value, although there are more generous matched deposit offers out there for those that wish to really get a lot of value out of their bonus.
Sports & Markets
VBet offers an impressive range of sports to bet on as they look to lock horns with the biggest names in betting. Everything from tennis and horse racing to ice hockey and Esports are supported on site.
As with most other bookies operating in the UK, football is VBet's bread and butter. Indeed, for a bookmaker that are touted as Arsenal's betting and gambling partner, VBet do a very good job of providing everything that a football bettor would want.
VBet currently offer markets for La Liga, the Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1, while they also have offerings for leagues from Portugal, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and many more. While the available markets for these lesser-watched leagues may not be as extensive as other major leagues, VBet still impress with their offerings.
Focussing on the Premier League, VBet are on of the most extensive and impressive bookmakers when it comes to football. At the time of writing, a day before any Premier League football match, there were over 330 markets available on all of the upcoming games the next day.
Before clicking on the game itself, you can click on the image of the graph which will open up the match stats centre which is quite an impressive offering. The last five head-to-head results are shown along with league positioning, performance home and away, the last five results from the two and then a more detailed analysis of their last five games.
Football matches are split into a number of sections to make it far easier for you to navigate though the available markets. These are all, match, totals, handicaps, players, halves, corners, fouls and cards. The statistical analysis does not stop there with the small graph available on a number of different markets which give you an even greater insight into the game.
The match winner and BTTS market are available alongside anytime goalscorer and the draw no bet markets. However, for those looking for more niche markets, Asian handicap and the first half team win by exactly one goal market all feature for those wanting more complex markets.
The In-Play markets are easy to find as it sits at the very top of the page. The offering for In-Play events is very good and VBet provides a lot of in-game information for their customers. For example, a football match has a graphic at the top showing the pitch with a table showing the amount of corners, cards, goals and goals per half. There is also another pitch on the right of the page detailing when there is a dangerous attack or which team has the ball. The odds themselves are constantly changing to reflect the game itself, while there is also a calendar that shows the next seven days worth of events so you can stay on top of what is to come.
This In-Play offering is also very well paired with VBet's cash out feature. Cashing out is available in full or partial meaning that you can adjust the percentage to exactly how much you want to cash out and how much you want to leave riding on the bet. This feature is available for most sports but it is most widely available for football.
Away from sport, VBet also offer a lot of more novelty betting. Clicking on the Specials tab will reveal opportunities to bet on the X Factor, Britain's Got Talent and many more, while the Politics section will have markets on all of the relevant events for that particular time.
VBet also offer a good section for Esports. This is located at the top of the homepage with the bookie offering popular games like CS:GO, DOTA 2 and League of Legends. Esports is still a relatively new area in betting and while it is nowhere near as well supported as the standard sportsbook, VBet clearly see the value of it and are making strides in bringing betting on gaming to the masses.
Live Streaming is not currently available on VBet, with the bookmaker yet to offer the feature. Considering the In-Play and cash out features on the site are so good it is very disappointing to see this feature missing from the site. While VBet do have time to add a live streaming feature to their site, it is interesting to see that despite being established way back in 2008, they still have not added this to their site.
Request A Bet
As the time of writing, VBet does not have an available bet builder feature. For many this will not inhibit their enjoyment of the site much as the bookie provide so many different markets anyway. However, for those that enjoy creating a more niche bet with longer odds, this lack of a bet builder is a disappointing blot on VBet's copybook considering the majority of the other top bookmakers all have this feature as standard.
Best Odds Guaranteed
VBet are one of the many bookmakers that offer a best odds guarantee on all UK and Irish horse racing. Here, the bookmaker will payout at the bigger price if you have taken a shorter price earlier in the day.
For example, if you take odds of 4/1 on a horse at the start of the day only to find the SP (Starting Price) is 7/1, if that horse wins you will be paid out at the bigger odds.
Features wise, VBet is one of the most impressive on the market at the moment with a number of high quality attributes that help to take your experience up a notch.
First of all, VBet offer a 100% refund acca insurance for their customers. When you place at least six selections on any football market with VBet, the bookie will refund you 100% of your stake as a free bet if one leg lets you down. This applies if you stake between £2 to £50 in a multiple bet with minimum odds of 1.6 on each selection.
Also offered is a four fold acca insurance. This promotion allows you to get a free bet up to £25 if your football acca loses by a single leg. To get on board with this you simply need to place a football acca from £2 to £100 consisting of four legs with minimum odds of 1.6 on each leg. You can get 25% of your stake back as a free bet up to £25 if one leg lets you down. Incredibly, VBet also offer a five fold acca special which can get you a 50% refund as a free bet if one leg loses. This applies if you place a five fold acca from £2 to £100 with odds of 1.6 on each leg. You can then get 50% of your stake back as a free bet up to £50 if one leg loses.
The site itself is a good looking sportsbook that is fairly easy to manoeuvre. The dark blue colour scheme is attractive and while there is a lot of information packed into each page it does not feel particularly overwhelming. The site itself also loads quickly and so does not require a lot of time sitting, staring at a blank screen while it tries to load.
Despite the fact that a few features are missing from VBet's site, they offer pretty much everything a bettor could ask for. With the exception of live streaming, VBet offer a lot of positives through a good value welcome offer, consistent existing customer promotions and a range of sports and markets with competitive odds. Perhaps they are yet to become a big household name, but in the world of betting they really have made their mark.
