Bethard Sports Betting: Overview
Bethard are a multi-purpose online gambling platform that covers a range of casino and sports betting products. This includes table games such as roulette and blackjack, live dealers, a full suite of slot machines and of course, a fully-fledged sportsbook.
Launched as recently as 2014, the Bethard website is still a relatively new entrant to the online betting sphere. However, with the view of amplifying its online presence, the Bethard sportsbook has the legendary Zlatan Ibrahimović as its main poster-boy!
The platform are in full receipt of a range of regulatory licenses. This includes the UK Gambling Commission, Malta Gaming Authority and the Swedish Gambling Authority.
When we tested out the mobile version of the main sportsbook, we found that the team at Bethard have done a fantastic job with their optimization skills. Each betting market is clearly laid-out, which makes is easy to navigate between each sporting event.
So now that you know who the operator is, in the next section of our Bethard Sports Betting review we are going to take a look at the range of betting markets on offer.
Bethard Sports Betting: Betting markets and odds
When you first access the main Bethard sports page, you will see how clean and crisp the layout is. On the left hand side, you will see a short list of the most popular markets currently on offer. At the time of writing this includes the major football leagues, the Super Bowl final and the NFL.
Beneath the main events box you will find a full list of the entire sporting range offered by Bethard. This covers practically every sports we could think of, which is most definitely a plus-point.
When we took a closer look at the number of markets on offer within each sporting event, this is pretty good for popular sports such as football and tennis. However, the less-popular matches offered slightly less. Nevertheless, we found that the overall selection of markets available at Bethard is above-par.
On the main homepage of the sportsbook, Bethard claim to offer “High Odds’. When we checked this out for ourselves, the platform is really competitive. Whilst the odds on offer are slightly lower than the major sports betting operators, Bethard are not too far behind.
So now that we’ve covered the main pre-match betting section, let’s explore the in-play department!
Bethard Sports Betting: In-play betting and extra features
As is now common in the live betting space, the Bethard in-play section automatically defaults to football. However, by scrolling through the list of sports at the top of the page, you can find your game of choice.
When it comes to the choice of in-play markets, this depends entirely on the sport in question, as well as how big the specific match is. For example, when we navigated through the WTA tennis section, each game had dozens of live markets to choose from. However, overseas football games outside of the major leagues offered very little, other than the main match result/total goals bets.
Nevertheless, we found it really easy to find the bet we wanted, especially via our mobile device. Odds were also pretty good, although slightly less competitive that the operators’ pre-match section.
So now that we’ve covered both the pre-match and in-play sections, let’s explore whether or not Bethard offer any decent promotions!
Bethard Sports Betting: Deals and promotions
Unlike other UK sports betting platforms, Bethard do not offer a matched deposit bonus to new players. We found that they instead offer a cash-back promotion. When you first register an account, you will get a £5 cash-back every time you wager £100.
You can take advantage of the offer up to 10 times, however this must be done within the first week of opening the account. On top of the welcome offer, the platform also runs a small selection of regular promotions for existing players.
This includes a 30% ‘Combo’ deal, which is great if you like betting on football accumulators. The Bethard sports betting platform also offers a daily bet boost section. The operator picks a small selection of football bets every day that offers enhanced odds, which we also really liked.
Overall, the amount of ongoing promotions available to new players is pretty good. Your best bet is to check back on the main homepage regularly, to ensure that you don’t miss out.
So now that we’ve covered the main offering of promotions for both new and existing players, in the final section of our Bethard review we are going to see what payment methods are supported.
Bethard Sports Betting: Payments and withdrawals
We found that the Bethard sportsbook only accepts a small range of payment methods. You have the option of depositing funds via a debit or credit card, Skrill or Paysafecard. Lesser known payment options include Euteller, Trustly and PugglePay. For some reason, there is no option to deposit via PayPal or Neteller, nor is a direct bank transfer supported.
In terms of withdrawals, Skrill is by far the quickest way to receive your funds. You should see the funds appear in your Skrill account the very same day, which is very good. Alternatively, a debit or credit card withdrawal will take longer, at 3-5 days.
Although Bethard do not display the ‘Reverse Withdrawal’ option, you can still cancel the request by contacting the support team via live chat.
Bethard Sports Betting: Summary
In summary, although the Bethard sports betting department is still a relatively new entrant to the space, we think that the platform is well worth a look. The overall layout – both on a web browser and mobile device, is really easy to navigate through. We also found that the number of markets on offer was exceptionally good, especially in popular markets.
To complement the full range of sporting events available, the Bethard sportsbook offers really competitive odds. However, once again, this is primarily reserved for the major games.
Finally, we were also pleased to see that the platform has a good number of ongoing promotions for existing players. Whilst we would prefer a more traditional welcome package, the cash-back bonus still offers good value.
