NetBet Sports Betting Review 2020


£30Free Bet
£30Free Bet

Logging onto NetBet, there’s no doubting the distinctly professional look and feel of the site. It might not be as well-known as some other bookmakers like Ladbrokes or William Hill, but it does still retain a similar ambience – at least in its design. It’s no bad company to keep and when you consider the £25 Free Bet welcome bonus, it’s very clear that they are out to impress.

From the sheer amount of variety that’s immediately available, to its ease of use – not to mention the site being rather easy on the eye –, NetBet looks as though it wants to take on the very best that the betting world has to offer. It’s no small challenge considering the sheer amount of brilliant betting sites there are available in the online world. That being said, first impressions suggest they may be up to the task.

Bonuses, Bets & Promotions

The NetBet welcome bonus is also joined by several other promotions, all of which can be easily found under the site’s promotional section. We’ll be taking a look at just three in order to provide you with an overview of their bonus quality. Don’t be alarmed though if changes have been made since the time of this review being written, as promotions are tweaked and replaced often in many betting sites, with some being tied to specific sports events. Nonetheless, this should give you a good idea of what to expect.

Another thing to bear in mind is that we will be covering only what we deem as the most relevant terms and conditions. That means you won’t find a full listing of all the terms here. If you want to see them all for yourself, they can be found on the NetBet site. With that in mind, let’s jump right in and check out NetBet’s promotional offerings. NetBet promotion£25 Free Bet: All you need to do to qualify for this bonus is to register and deposit a bet with minimum odds of 1.5 and you will receive a 100% bonus up to £25. This free bet token can then be used on any sport, accumulator or single. It’s a simple but effective promotion here.

Bet £10 on Tennis, Get a £5 Free Bet: This is similar to the welcome bonus but is sport specific and with slightly different requirements. What’s important here is that you have to bet £10 on 3 fold or more to receive your £5 free bet. Minimum odds are, once again, 1.5.  

Bet £10 on NBA, Get a £5 Free Bet: This promotion is identical to the previous offer, except with NBA being the sport of focus as opposed to tennis.

Although we would like some more variety in the type of bonuses available through NetBet, there’s little doubt that they all offer value to players. The terms are fair and don’t require users to deposit absurd sums in order to get something that actually benefits their accounts. And while we do enjoy more creative promotions, value and quality are what really matters here, and NetBet certainly aren’t lacking in that regard.

Betting Markets

One area in which variety certainly isn’t a problem is with NetBet’s betting markets. Frankly, there’s a massive amount of sports available here, with hundreds to thousands of options to choose from on various sports like basketball, e-sports and football, among many more. NetBet betting selectionThere’s also variety within these sports. To take the latter example, you can bet on football from the likes of the Premier League, Bundesliga and La Liga, to name just a few of the leagues covered at NetBet. It’s an excellent selection here that we think will satisfy the vast majority of users.

Mobile App

According to the customer service team, the NetBet mobile apps are currently under development and should be available to customers very soon. However, that’s not too big an issue considering that the site seems to work just fine on all the mobile devices we tested it on, with all the content we needed available at the palm of our hands. Nonetheless, considering how well the site works on mobile at the moment, we are very interested to see what improvements can be made with a dedicated app.NetBet mobile app

Live Streaming & Virtual Sports

Unfortunately, there is no live streaming available at NetBet at the time of writing. And while this would be a bonus, it is worth pointing out that this is the case for all but a few betting sites, so we can’t judge them too harshly in that regard. NetBet virtual sportsHowever, they do have plenty of virtual sports options to choose from, with the ability to bet on virtual football, horse racing and greyhounds. All of the streams here were excellent, with plenty of choice available for each sport category.

Payment and Withdrawal Methods

One issue we often find with betting sites is that they don’t make their banking information easy to find or understand. However, that’s no problem here, as everything you need to know can be found in their Help centre, with relevant information found for both deposits and withdrawals in an easy to understand table. We won’t be including all the information here: that can be found on the site itself. However, we will go over some of the most important points to provide you with a quick overview. NetBet payment methodsDeposit options at NetBet include credit/debit card, Astropay, Skrill, Giropay, Bankwire, Neteller, Paysafecard, Euteller, Trustly, Wire Transfer, Boleto, Instadebit, Boku, Fast Bank Transfer and EcoPayz. As you can see, there’s a massive variety of payment methods which truly reflects the international reach of NetBet. These methods are all free of fees and are all instantly processed, with the exception of Fast Bank Transfer, which can take between one and 14 working days, and EcoPayz which can take between two to four days. Minimum and maximum amounts, of course, depend on the individual payment method.

Withdrawal methods include credit/debit card, PayPal, Skrill, Neteller, Wire Transfer, Bitcoin by Neteller and Trustly. There are no fees and processing times range from an instant to 12 days, depending on the payment type you choose. Once again, minimum and maximum amounts depend on the withdrawal method.

It’s great to have so many options and have them all so comprehensively explained, so we have no complaints here.

Customer Support

Alongside the Help section – which, if you couldn’t tell, we think is excellent –, there are also options to get in touch with the customer service team directly if you have any questions which remain unanswered. You can contact NetBet via email, phone or live chat on the site. NetBet customer supportWe found their customer service team to be exceptionally fast when it came to responding and helpful with all of the question we had. The phone line runs between 12.00 and 20.00 UK time, while the live chat is open between 09:00 and 23:00 UK time. It’s not quite 24-hour coverage but that’s still very good.

Reliability and Security

As per the information available on their site, we can tell you that NetBet is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commision, as well as holding a European license from Malta. They also utilise state-of-the-art encryption methods, ensuring that all your data is safeNetBet reliabilityOn top of this, they have an extensive section on responsible gaming. This includes links to organisations which are able to offer support to those who feel they may have an issue with gambling. In addition, there are several tools available on the NetBet site – such as deposit limits – to prevent users from overspending. With all that and competitive odds, there are few concerns when it comes to the reliability and security of NetBet.

Casino Welcome Bonus

If you have only looked at the promotional page on the sports side of things, then you may be disappointed to find a lack of casino bonuses. However, there’s no need to be concerned, as those bonuses are just tucked away over on the casino section of the NetBet site. NetBet casino bonusAmong these is the welcome package, which includes up to a £200 casino welcome bonus alongside 10 free spins on Vegas. Simply enter the bonus code NBWELCOME with your first deposit and you will receive a 100% bonus up to £200 alongside the spins. The wagering requirement here is 30x, which is very competitive when compared to many similar offers.

NetBet Summary

There are some areas in which we would like to see more from NetBet. For example, we’d love to be able to live stream games. Despite this though, our experience here was generally very positive.

There’s plenty to enjoy across both the sports and all the other sections on offer, which make this one excellent jack-of-all-trades betting site. The site itself is a joy to use, it’s classically laid out, explains itself well and is easy to use, even on mobile. On top of that, the customer service experience was fantastic, even though our need to use them was limited due to encountering so few issues during our time with NetBet. Overall, we were very impressed and hope to see NetBet get even better in the future.
