NetBet is one of the oldest bookies online, and with over two decades in the game the site offers one of the most comprehensive and market-rich betting experiences around.
The NetBet brand is extremely well-known, and a simple Google search reveals that very few complaints have been lodged against the site, which is a testament to the levels of integrity and honesty NetBet offer.
In this post, we’re going to take a look at NetBet and outline any important or exclusive features that help to make the site unique, alongside details of the banking and loyalty scheme running’s at the bookie.
THE NETBET WEBSITE
The design of NetBet’s website is more or less perfect. It has the right blend of efficiency, reliability, depth, features, and style to make it work for more or less everyone. What’s more, you’ll find yourself able to join and sign up for an account in around 30-seconds thanks to the simple, one page sign-up form.
It’s well spaced out with clear options on display that make it really easy to get from one place to another, and more importantly, to find what you want quickly.
The colour scheme helps to make it feel contemporary as well as to highlight certain elements such as live scores, it also helps to break things up and make the site easy to scan.
In-play betting offers a huge range of potential extra betting options, not only allowing you to bet based on what you’ve seen during the event so far, but also bet on things that wouldn’t be possible pre-game.
As you can imagine, the in-play area is built to an extremely high standard, and everything from browsing the markets to expanding the events is made easy thanks to the smooth and simple interface that NetBet have built.
The overview allows you to make basic bets like 1×2, BTTS, Tital Goals, etc. on all in-play events without having to open event view, so if you are just trying to cover a few games quickly it’s great. There is also a live scores, live schedule, and results service offering stats and predictions galore.
Event view is brilliant, because not only do you have the game visualisation keeping you updated second by second alongside the filtered markets, but you can also keep an eye on all other live games on the left. This is extremely useful if you have positions in more than one game at the same time.
While the odds are not quite as good as you’d find elsewhere, regular promotions do ensure that you get your money’s worth while betting, and with a little patience you should be able to find some decent odds, particularly on less popular markets like Tennis and American sports.
To access the in-play betting area just click ‘In-Play’ from the main navigation menu and you’ll instantly see the events in front of you.
As bettors, we love to be in control of the situation, so what better way for the bookies to offer us that privilege then letting us decide when we want to cash out our bets.
Of course, almost all online bookmakers offer cash out these days, but NetBet are well known in the industry for offering some of the most generous cash out prices around. It’s also an incredibly quick and easy function to take advantage of.
To check if your bets are eligible for cash out, locate your open bets and look for a big ‘Cash Out’ button; if you see it then the bet is eligible for cash out, and the price accompanying the button tells you how much NetBet are willing to offer. If you want to take it, just confirm and you’re done – the money will be in your betting account right away, and you’re free to bet or withdraw it as you wish.
Sports Betting at NetBet
NetBet may not command the biggest customer base in the world, but one thing that can’t be taken away from them is the sheer number of markets they offer, both sporting and otherwise. We’ll begin by looking at some of the bigger sports markets available at NetBet.
The site is probably best known for its Football and Horse Racing markets, which is a common occurrence for most other online bookmakers too, as these tend to be the two most popular markets with punters. Of course, bookmakers will go where the business is.
In fact, offering regular Football promotions and bonuses is one of the main tactics employed by NetBet to attract new players to the site.
While the specific promotions and bonuses offered are subject to change at any time – and they do change regularly – some of the more popular promos they have run in the past include enhanced ante-post odds, money back specials if your horse loses by a certain distance, and fallers insurance.
While NetBet may not offer the largest selection of markets out there, unless you have very specific tastes you are unlikely not to be able to find the event you are looking for, and as you’ll see in the section below, they even offer a range of more unusual markets.
The first of NetBet’s more unusual sports markets worth mentioning is the eSports. It’s a surprisingly busy category, and the world’s largest and most popular eSports events can always be found in the navigation menu. Games covered include DOTA, Rainbow Six, Counter Strike, and more.
Elsewhere, NetBet also offer a range of country specific bets from all over the world, including the United Kingdom, Turkey, Germany, and the United States.
Head into the United Kingdom’s market area, for example, and you’ll see a selection of UK Politics and TV specials. A bet that’s almost always running is the ‘Next General Election: Most Seats’, which allows you to take a punt on who you think will hold the next majority in the House of Commons.
Other bets in the country specific sub-categories include betting on the next President of the United States and a range of other election themed bets.
Sports like Cycling, Gaelic Football, Hurling, and Futsal help to make up the site’s roster of unusual sports betting options.
How Good are the Odds?
NetBet are one of the few bookies who don’t offer any form of best odds guaranteed. Of course, this is detrimental and could cause players to go elsewhere for their betting needs; although it should be noted that NetBet do make up for this to some degree by offering better prices than many competitors from the offset.
Saying that, they tend to be quite generous on the Cricket and on some Football too, with Tennis bettors being treated well at NetBet also.
They also offer a few NetBet Boosts which can be useful if you were going to bet on those markets anyway.
As we always recommend though, you should do your due diligence before placing a bet by either looking at different bookies websites or using a free online odds comparison tool.
The deposit and withdrawal methods offered by NetBet are some of the most substantial in the industry, and you’ll find a huge range from Visa and Mastercard debit cards, to more obscure methods and popular ewallets including Payal.
Below, you’ll see a table of the main deposit methods you can use, along with the minimum deposit amount, the fee (if any), and the time it takes for the payment to reach your account:
|TIME TO CREDIT TO YOUR ACCOUNT
|Visa and Mastercard Debit
|Boku: Pay by Mobile
Withdrawals are largely the same, although a few options aren’t available due to payment industry guidelines. There are other payment methods too what with NetBet operating all over Europe, but they aren’t all available to UK customers.
For more information on any of the above, simply head to the NetBet website where you can make your way to the banking FAQ page, which displays many of the commonly asked questions surrounding deposits and withdrawals.
