Sportsbook Review of Betsafe
2006/10/15 - Review by Ira Nanson
Licensed and regulated in Costa Rica, Betsafe primarily target the Scandinavian market which reflects on the sporting events they take action on including winter sports, handball, floorball, tennis and trotting. Soccer enthusiast will be pleased with the vast amount of odds offered but if you favor US sports you will be disappointed with the limited choice of just NFL and NBA.
Common wager types include grand salami, group betting, head to head betting, handicap, match, money line, totals and props. Website features include live betting, live scores, casino, poker, super toto and a partner program.
Customer service is recognized as a high priority and they promise to respond to all emails within 15 minutes. If they fail to keep this promise they will credit the players account with 10 Euro dollars. This only applies to registered players and there are some practical terms attached.
Only four methods of deposits are available and they include mastercard and visa credit card, moneybookers, neteller and bank wire. Withdrawals only available though neteller, moneyboooker and bank wire
Minimum bet is $1 Euro, or equivalent.
The maximum anyone can win in one bet is $18,000 Euro, $25,000 per day and $50,000 per week, or equivalent.
This is a no nonsense website with straight forward betting lines and information, free of any flashing banners and half naked ladies which typifies many sportsbooks these days. The layout is simple and easy navigate, but placing a bet and understanding the terminology can be quite confusing if you are used to the North American style of betting.
Although they offer odds on trotting there is no horse book available at BetSafe.
Betsafe have been online since 2002 and have so far maintained a relatively low profile, this is not necessarily a bad thing when you consider that are no reported complaints.
Comparative to NordicBet you will receive an above average betting experience at BetSafe and since they cater mostly to the Scandinavian market they have marginally less competition than the likes of Bet Any Sports, CentreBet and The Pig.
