Betsson Sportsbook Review

Betsson is among the sportsbooks that so obviously value their customers. They show it with their customer service, quick withdrawals, promotional programs and, most interestingly, amazingly thorough blog. Registering with Betsson is a decision you can make confidently. We’re here to tell you why.

Our Hot Take

All the extra little incentives at Betsson really drive their product home. They have a great mobile app, allow you to use their poker room without downloading any software. However, with such strict geographic restrictions, nobody from the US or Canada can play here.

Account creation

Zero to Done in Seconds

Signing up at Betsson is quick and easy. They have you enter all the pertinent information on one page, from your username and email to your address and mobile number. The entire form takes under a minute to fill out, and if your account is approved, you’ll be able to make a deposit.

Welcome Bonuses

Free Spins Alert

New Betsson users are eligible for up to 100 free spins in one of the site’s exclusive casino games after making their first deposit. All you have to do is visit the Betsson promotion page to activate it. Make sure to do this before completing your first deposit.

Deposits

Plenty of Payment Methods

No one should have a problem finding ways to make a despoti at Betsson. They accept everything from credit cards to bank transfers to online money books.

Bitcoin: Unavailable

Directly loading up your account with Bitcoin is out of the question. Now, with that said, Betsson does accept a number of online moneybookers—NETELLER, EcoPayz, Interac, etc. You can fund those accounts using Bitcoin and then transfer the subsequent balance to Betsson.

Credit Cards: Yes, Yes, Yes

Visa and Mastercard are both accepted by Betsson. This isn’t great news for American Express and Discover users, but it’s more than some sportsbooks offer. Plus, you always have the option of a bank transfer.

And hey: If you’re in the market for a credit card, Mastercard has a Betsson rewards one that you can apply for.

Withdraw Winnings

So, So Easy

Getting your money out of Betsson is hassle-free. They have a withdrawal option once you log into your account, and after you select it, they’ll provide you with all the different payout methods. Convenient still, they tell you how long each withdrawal form will take to process.

Placing a Bet

Enjoyable Process

Putting through a wager with Betsson is a pleasant experience. They have all the competitions available on their sportsbook page, and every line you click on will be added to your betslip at the bottom of the page.

After you’ve finished loading up your wager sheet, and assuming you’ve already funded your account, all you need to do is confirm the bets. Just like that, you’re done.

Politics Betting

UK and USA Lines Available Now

Political minds will enjoy placing a wager on the main elections in either the United Kingdom or United States. The available options are straightforward—mostly outrights—but you will have a small list of props to choose from. One example: Predicting which states presidential candidates will win in the US.

eSports

Organized Oddsmaking

Kudos to Betsson for offering such an organized eSports section. There are so many different tournaments and leagues to choose from, and they separate it by start time (in Malta) and then league.

Virtual Sports Betting

Above-Average Selection

Virtual sports betting entails placing a wager on video games that are being simulated in real time. Though not every sportsbook has them, Betsson offers all the basics—and then some. Their virtual sports options include horse racing, dog racing, soccer, tennis, football and basketball.

NBA

Outrights Central

Like their MLB market, Betsson’s NBA section is laden with single-game lines and outrights. They could stand to add some more daily and big-picture props, like those related to awards or player performances, but they make up for the absence of them by also offering lines on the WNBA and certain international leagues.

US Open

Get Your Prop-Betting On

In a unique twist, Betsson has plenty of props to choose from in their golf market, on top of all the outrights they offer. We’re not talking basic props, either. They allow you to bet on a golfer’s over/under score by hole. That is, unequivocally, amazing.

NFL

Great Props selection

Betsson has all the fundamental NFL betting options, namely outrights and single-game lines, but really distinguishes themselves in the props department. They give you the ability to wager on weekly player performances, individual yearly awards, the NFL draft and rookie-year milestones. It’s wild…in a great way.

MLB

Heavy on Outrights

All the props Betsson has in the NFL market does not extend to MLB betting. They carry single game lines, win-total futures and outrights on division winners, the AL/NL championships and the World Series.

More Betting Options

Endless Options

Your betting options don’t end with Betsson’s major markets. They also have lines and outrights for badminton, biathlon, bowling, boxing, chess, cricket, cycling, darts, esports, greyhound racing, kickboxing, skiing, soccer, golf, handball, hockey, MMA, Formula 1, other motorsports, pool, rugby, sailing, snooker, tennis, table tennis and volleyball.

Casino

Lots of Poker and Slots

Betsson casino gaming options include:

Poker

Its own Promotion

Games 

Betsson’s poker room is available as both a downloadable and web-browser option. They offer daily tournaments, and the amount you bet counts toward the rewards you build up in their VIP program. The only game they offer, though, is Texas Hold ‘Em.

Bonus

First-time players at Betsson’s poker room will receive extra rewards points in the Club VIP program. Upon building up enough points, you will be eligible to get real cash in your account.

Live Betting

Interesting Process

Scrolling through live betting lines is a unique experience at Betsson. They’re very organized about it. They don’t separate it by sport at first. Instead, they have start time options. You can look at all the events beginning in the next hour and then sort them by sport from there.

One potential downside here: Betsonn doesn’t provide live-betting lines for non-major sports. They predominantly traffic in basketball, soccer, football, baseball, hockey and esports.

Parlay Betting

Get Two-Syllable Paid

Parlaying bets is a great way to drum up your potential return. Granted, it does increase your risk. You have to correctly hit on every line or prediction you select for it to be a success. If you do that, though, you’re able to turn two single wagers into one possibly lucrative return.

Converting your single bets into a parlay is effortless at Betsson. Just select the “combination” option at the top of your betslip, and the site will show you how much you stand to win based on how much you bet.

Additional Betting Help

Absolute Winners

Here are Betsson’s main alternative resources:

Betsson’s blog is among the best in the online sportsbook industry. They not only keep you updated on the latest news, but they have articles that offer actual betting advice, from analyzing different sports and teams to guiding you through tips on how to play certain table games. 

Promotions

Almost Perfect

The good news is that Betsson’s bonuses are pretty generous. The welcome bonus of 100 free spins in the casino is particularly useful, and they have a poker room-specific promotion. 

But with all that in mind, Betsson would really benefit from offering to match first-time deposits in the sportsbook, up to a certain amount. That’s what a lot of bigger operations do, and it would give those who have no inkling to play poker or visit the casino more of a reason to register.

Customer Service

Flat-Out Awesome

Users have a number of different ways to get in contact with customer support. The primary ones are email, live chatting and a call-back option in which you fill out a form and Betsson promises to contact you, by phone, at a certain time.

For those who end up having problems creating an account, Betsson can also be reached by phone. They’ll provide you with a number to call—or live chat box—should you run into any issues.

Emails

Zero Spam

Aside from an account verification email, Betsson won’t party crash your inbox unless you sign up to receive specific promotions.

Live Streaming

Only on Horse Racing

Betsson doesn’t offer live streaming for most sports, but you will have the ability to watch a bunch of different horse races as they happen.

VPN

A Tad Too Difficult

Accessing Betsson from an unsupported territory using a VPN worked for us. Unfortunately, though, it took longer than it should have to set up an account. They don’t accept just any virtual addresses linked to the territory you’re using on the VPN. If you’re in Canada or the US, this could be potentially problematic.

Conclusion

Betsson Gets an “A” From Us

Everything from the sign-up process and deposit transactions to the betting selections and withdrawals is extremely well done. They make it easy to do more complicated actions, like contact customer service and build parlays, and their blog resources will be outstripped by no one. The process of registering with a VPN service gets a little hairy, but this will only be an issue for a select few. Otherwise, you’re going to want to get your bets on at Betsson.

Betsson Sportsbook Review

There is very little to quibble about when using Betsson.
