While some might hope for a few more promotions, one area where BetKing cannot be accused of lacking variety is in its sports selection.
At the time of writing, there were 612 events available across 17 sports, including football, tennis, basketball, golf, hockey, pool, MMA, virtuals and more. The only thing they are really missing here is a selection of e-sports but for the more traditional fan, there’s plenty to get stuck into here.
There’s also a huge amount of betting markets available. We checked the selection on the English Premier League and found an astonishing 157 betting markets to choose from across those events. This means that not only is the variety of sports impressive, but the betting markets variety within those sports is impressive too.
The attention to detail here cannot be understated, few sites of any stature can match Bet King in terms of the details they include on different sports, providing leagues tables with additional head to head, referee, stadium and team information.
On top of that there’s the seamlessness of the actual experience of betting, which is especially important when it comes to live betting.
Speaking of which, Bet King also offers a Cash Out feature, which allows you to Cash Out and claim your current winnings if you don’t want to risk losing your result by the end of the game. Simply click on My Bets where you can view the cash out value and hit proceed.
This is another great example of how Bet King have clearly done everything possible to make the actual betting process as straightforward as possible.
But what about the quality of the odds? If a site has tons of options but terrible odds, it’s still better to look elsewhere.
One of the easiest ways to calculate this is to work out the over-round. This is the number you get when you add the probability percentages of every possible outcome. Logically, this should come to 100%, however, this is not taking into account the book makers margin. That is what the over-round is, and it is calculated as the amount above 100%.
We took a look at three games that were advertised on the homepage at the time of writing: Crystal Palace vs Liverpool, Japan vs Venezuela and Man City vs Chelsea. The overround came to 104.4%, 105% and 105.5%. For reference, anything below 110% is considered good, so these are very competitive.
And it’s a good job that they do excel when it comes to sports because that is what BetKing specialises in. You’ll find no casino or poker room, and betting on other events like entertainment or politics is rare.
