Marathonbet has its headquarters in Brighton, England and has a huge customer-base of more than 1.5 million users dispersed in as many as 188 countries. It is owned and operated under two licenses for its online platforms. Its “.com” platform is owned by Panbet Curacao while its “.co.uk” address is owned by Marathon Alderney Limited. The latter’s licensee is Alderney Gambling Control Commission.

Marathonbet sponsors several football teams and leagues and is considered to be one of the best exchange for football punters as it offers the best possible odds. It is also famous for its fast service on online betting.

Wagering

Marathonbet offers bonuses only to its UK based customers. However, as a general rule it has a condition that the initial deposit by the customer should be rolled four times. Another condition is that before the withdrawal of bonus, it should be once wagered.

Sports Market

Marathonbet is famous for football betting but it offers myriad of other sports as well including tennis, basketball, boxing and other exclusive events that involve chess and sumo wrestling.

They are popular to offer the best available odds with thin margins. This means that customers who are looking for betting on this platform should look for a long term association and thus, have an account with them.

For its popularity and inclusion of other niche sports, Marathonbet doesn’t just foresee its future is Eastern Europe but, globally. In essence, if we consider commissions then they are even better in their price offerings than other exchanges. What punters like the best about Marathonbet is that they don’t limit customers and so they can take their bets bigger.
One more distinctive feature of Marathonbet is that they don’t engage themselves with smaller markets including First Goal scorers but their target usually remains 1X2, Asian Handicaps and Under/Over Goals. In these markets, they remain one of the best and their prominence can also be witnessed by the huge trading team.

Horse Racing

Marathonbet is not very focused on horse racing. This also comes as a disadvantage to the company because horse racing is a prominent trigger in UK betting environment. It looks like they plan to expand in this market in near future. Currently, they offer betting on major Australian, Irish and UK race events but without any promotions.

Live Betting

The Marathonbet trading team is based in Brighton, Moscow and St Petersburg. Their traders respond very swiftly to all in-play events and so there is no suspension in betting that usually happens in other in-play events. This gives them an edge because it offers freedom to its customers and thus opens up to more and more trading for such events.

Website Layout and Mobility

The website of Marathonbet looks more functional than attractive. It looks like they want their customers to focus on numbers and bets rather than look for aesthetics and beauty. However, their quick refreshes in content give users a more real-time betting experience.

The colour scheme on their website is pretty monotonic. They have used a three-column layout, where the left hand side focuses on sports listing, the odds can be found in the middle while the right hand side is dedicated to betting slip. Moreover, there is a drop down menu on the sports navigation feature. You can see all the applicable leagues of a single sport by clicking on it. For example, if you’d like to see leagues in Football you simply click on the Football area and it will make all the leagues appear below it and this panel would have its own scroll bar so everything else remains intact in front of you.

Marathonbet also offers a mobile version of its website, which they developed in 2013. Their mobile version is equally functional than pretty. This means that the company is focused more on its functional part and speed in content updates rather than its style. However, it looks like they will be focusing on its look and feel also to make it more interactive and user-friendly for customers. The feature Quickbet on the mobile website allows users to bet in two caps. They can also use the filter A-Z view to have a look at the sports available for betting.

Customer Support

Marathonbet offers live chat option on their website, as well as communication through phone calls, emails and fax.
The customers can communication with the support representatives in a diverse range of languages including English, German, Chinese, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Serbian and Turkish.

New Customers

Marathonbet offers as much as £20 to its new customers when they make an account with them. The promo-code that they are supposed to use is MAXCASH. As soon as the new customers sign up on their website, they get a 100% deposit of the said amount.

Advancebets

Advancebet is a feature that allows customers to boost their stakes by unlocking potential winning from a list of their unsettled bets ahead of time. Time is a key here. This means you can also place a bet with zero balance in your account utilising your unsettled bets.

Conclusion

Marathonbet certainly offers very competitive odds and a promising range of sports. The features of its website are rich and functionality is amazing however, they surely need to work and improve on its interface. One thing that sets this platform apart from other bookmakers is the Advancebet feature. It remains the biggest betting brand of the whole of Easter Europe and high stake punters have extreme trust on them. They don’t allow for in-play betting suspension that is again an edge because other bookmakers haven’t reached this level as yet.
