ComeOn is primarily known as an online casino, but a recent upgrade has seen sports betting facilities added too, and now this Australian themed site offers one of the simplest and most reliable betting experiences around.
The slick, clean, easy to navigate interface is one of the reasons ComeOn’s new sportsbook is so popular with punters; finding markets is extremely easy. Actually, when it comes to markets there’s also a plethora of choice; you’ll find hundreds of events taking place every hour. Whether it’s football that takes your fancy, or something more unusual like political markets, ComeOn offer a huge number of options.
THE COMEON WEBSITE
ComeOn has the perfect blend of colours and imagery whilst keeping reliability and usability at its core, and it’s very rare to hear players complaining about issues while using the site.
While the sports book is admittedly very new, if it’s anything like their online casino then we’re confident it will have a long and popular life ahead of it.
Below, we’re going to cover some of the core components and features that make up the website.
ComeOn’s statistic tool is one of the most impressive betting tools we’ve come across at any online bookmaker, and you can access this tool by clicking at the bottom of the main menu on the left-hand side of most pages.
The general idea is that it helps you determine which markets have good value and are worth betting on, and which don’t and are best avoided.
It can be a little confusing to get the hang of at first, but once you manage to get to grips with how the software works it’s a really useful tool; we think it’s worth signing up to ComeOn for use of this tool alone.
It can be used with a number of markets, including all of the most popular ones like Football, Cycling, Tennis, and Golf; and there’s no fee, all member’s get access absolutely free of charge.
ComeOn’s results service gives you quick access to all of the results for that particular day, and it serves as a fantastic alternative to checking sites like Livescores, which are notoriously glitchy and unreliable, and peppered with ads.
To access the results service, you need to click ‘Results’ from the left-hand side menu just above the statistics tool, then you can narrow down the markets and events to suit your chosen sport/market.
While it’s nothing too ground breaking, the way ComeOn have designed and presented the tool is excellent, and it’s one of the better results portals we’ve come across.
Cash out features can be found at virtually every bookmaker these days, and has become a staple part of many players online betting sessions. It’s a great way to take a profit while the going is good, albeit sacrificing a little extra if things ultimately go your way.
If you’re not familiar with how cashing out works, it’s when a bookmaker gives you the opportunity to settle your bet early in return for a smaller profit. For example, if you place a bet on a football team and they are winning two nil at half-time, you may have an ominous feeling that something will go wrong and the match may end up in a draw. In this situation, you might want to consider cashing out your bet while you are still winning, which would see you get paid less than were you to wait the match out and risk it, but would at least give you a guaranteed profit.
It can often be a little tricky knowing when to take cash out and when not to, but as a general rule if you are happy with the profit the cash out option is offering, it’s definitely not the worst idea to hedge your bets and run away with the cash while you can.
ComeOn used to offer players a dedicated downloadable app, but this was discontinued for unknown reasons. This came as a bit of a shock to some of the regular players, but it was quickly replaced by a more efficient mobile optimised website that all players can log onto and enjoy.
To do so, simply open up your internet browser on your device and navigate to the ComeOn website as you normally would. They will do the rest.
The vast majority of account functions, betting markets, and other features are available through the mobile site; in fact, pretty much the only features not accessible are the statistics tool that we talked about earlier and the ability to contact the support team via live chat. This really isn’t an issue though, and the functionality of the mobile website more than makes up for the lack of a couple of features.
Sports Betting at ComeOn
ComeOn offer a respectable number of betting markets, all of which can be accessed from the main homepage.
Aside from the popular sports found at virtually all bookies (Football, Tennis, Cricket, Golf etc) ComeOn offer a number of more unique or unusual markets for you to enjoy as well. We cover these in detail in the ‘unusual markets’ section below, so for now we are going to stick with the common markets on offer.
Football markets are a focal point at ComeOn and are available in their hundreds. Football is split into three main sections: Football (soccer), American Football, and Gaelic Football.
UK fans will find an abundance of markets to explore, including all Premier League matches, Championship games, and most fixtures in the lower leagues too. Tournaments are also regularly covered, with the Champions League, the Euros, and major events such as the World Cup offered in their entirety.
Surprisingly for a UK facing bookie, Horse Racing doesn’t make as big an appearance as you might perhaps expect; and while you are still able to bet on the majority of UK and Irish races it’s nowhere near as well publicised as at other bookies. Still, the markets are there, you just have to find them manually.
Other popular markets include MMA, Cycling, Baseball, Athletics, and Aussie Rules.
In terms of unusual sports markets, ComeOn feature a good number to choose between and enjoy.
Perhaps one of the most unique we found is Surfing, a sport that most bookies don’t offer and that some probably wouldn’t consider a sport in the first place.
It goes without saying that the number of Surfing events are miniscule compared to Football for instance, but major events are offered – particularly during summer – and this is great for both surfing enthusiasts and punters wanting to try something a little different. There is also Speedway betting, alongside Swimming, Boxing, and Handball.
We also found Chess, which is not a sport by conventional standards, but something ComeOn are more than happy to offer bets on. Like Surfing, the Chess offerings are rarer and you will only really find markets available when major events (usually in China and other Asian countries) are running.
There are a number of Political and TV special markets available too, although it has to be said that ComeOn don’t exactly dazzle with their selection of Politics markets, especially when compared with other online bookies.
How Good are the Odds?
ComeOn are frequently touted on odds comparison sites as a top bookmaker thanks to the prices they offer across their wide variety of markets and events, and it’s true; you will find pretty tasty prices on offer.
In fact, despite the fact that they don’t widely offer ‘Best Odds Guaranteed’, ComeOn usually offer an above average range of odds – on Horse Racing in particular- and great value can be found, especially surrounding some of the larger events. For example, ComeOn ran a promotion at Ascot resulting in prices that could be boosted as much as 200%!
The area where ComeOn let themselves down the most is with their Political and TV Special prices, as these are often a lot lower than elsewhere in the industry; so punters looking to wager on these markets will likely fare better elsewhere.
In Play Betting
ComeOn offer “the latest live betting odds and bets on all major Football, Tennis, and Basketball events”, and it appears that they certainly live up to their word.
Simply click the ‘In-Play’ tab from the navigation menu, and you will be taken directly to the in-play screen, which clearly displays and outlines all of the live events on offer. You will find a number of markets to enjoy, with Football and Tennis being the most prominent.
Most of the in-play matches and events are available to view via a live stream. This is not a video picture but a graphical image showing highlights of the game that are updated every couple of seconds.
It’s worth knowing that ComeOn allow mobile players to take advantage of in-play betting as well; it’s a function that is fully optimised for mobiles allowing for live betting on the go’.
ComeOn have enabled customers to join the site in a matter of seconds thanks to a simple, easy to use form. On the main page, you’ll see a green ‘Join Now’ button; click this and then enter a few personal details (full name, e-mail/home address and date of birth are mandatory) and you can begin placing bets right away.
Joining via the mobile version of the site is a little more long winded, but can still be completed in a matter of minutes. ComeOn use handy drop-down menus so you can easily choose your date of birth etc, saving time and avoiding the hassle often associated with mobile sign-up forms.
The effectiveness of customer support is often overlooked, as errors while betting are far less frequent that they once were thanks to technological advances. This means some customers will never have needed to access support services before and possibly never will, but we like to be thorough in our reviews so e-mail, phone, and live chat features are always something that we look at carefully.
Customer support is on hand 24/7, and ComeOn have one of the better reputations online as they consistently deliver all of their customers with a speedy, helpful, and friendly service. While this may not ever have been relevant to you in the past, it’s good to know it’s there should the occasion arise, and further showcases the bookies pride in their professionalism.
ComeOn offer a wide and varied range of deposit and withdrawal options including: Visa and Mastercard Debit cards, Neteller, Skrill, Paysafecard, Entropay, and EcoPayz.
To view the full range of payment methods available in your country/jurisdiction, just head to the ‘Cashier’ page and you’ll be presented with a breakdown of all the payment methods available. You will also be able to view any minimum/maximum withdrawals attached to each.
Generally, you’ll be able to deposit in minimums of £5 to £10, with minimum withdrawals starting at £10 for almost all payment methods; although it varies depending on your country, currency choice, and chosen payment method
In terms of the withdrawal times, ComeOn are one of the quickest, and anything over 12 hours would be considered unusual. Of course, the actual time it takes to reach your account is a little different, and most payment methods will take around 3-5 days to show up.
Again, full details can be found on the Cashier page, while some of the more intricate legal jargon can be found in the terms and conditions of the site.
History & About
ComeOn casino is a UK focussed online bookie that is generally regarded as one of the leading online gambling operators in the world. Initially known for their online casino, ComeOn have enjoyed fantastic visibility thanks to their strong partnerships with gaming providers around the world, and this has enabled the company to branch out into sports betting, which has proved a significant move for the company.
Owned and operated by Co-Gaming Ltd, the company was first founded in 2008, and while it took a while for them to gain any real traction within the industry, once things took off the company went from strength to strength, quickly attracting the attention of casino players who were itching for a someone reliable to come along and fill the void that was there at the time.
Many casinos back then were Playtech powered, and casino games on Playtech powered platforms at the time were usually all Playtech games – which some players hated. Hence the market for multi-provider casinos.
As the years went by ComeOn grew in size, and eventually the decision was made to release the sports book as a compliment to the casino side of their operations. While gaming remains the larger portion of their business, ComeOn have tens of thousands of monthly visitors to their sportsbook as well, and their emphasis was clear from day one; they care about their customers and they want a website that caters to every type of punter. This they have unquestionably achieved, and with merit.
Today, ComeOn continue to expand, and their sports book shows the most growth of all. New bet markets and events are added every week, and the site is improving many of its services to enhance the player experience. This includes adding new payment methods to the site, allocating more support staff to the sports book side of things, and creating new promotions and bonuses each week to keep things fresh.
