Betsafe Review

If you wrote down everything that the perfect betting website should have, it reads like a list of Betsafe’s products and features. This bookmaker really does have it all. No matter what kind of betting you’re into, there will be something for you here. 

Betsafe Sports

Not only is the range of options very impressive, but there is also a great depth of choice everywhere you look. From the national and international options of each sport to the selection of games at the casino, Betsafe has pulled out all the stops.

Betsafe is fully licensed and regulated in Britain by the UK Gambling Commission and in Sweden by the Swedish Gambling Authority. In the rest of the world it’s the Malta Gaming Authority that keeps an eye on things.

Betsafe Odds & Markets

Betsafe has a great selection of sports ranging from the major worldwide favourites to some of the more niche games:

BadmintonBaseballBasketball

CricketCyclingDarts
EsportsFloorballFootball
Formula 1Gaelic SportsGolf
HandballIce HockeyMMA/UFA
MotorbikesMotorsportsPesapallo
PoolRugby LeagueRugby Union
SnookerSpeedwayTennis
VolleyballWinter Sports

As well as over 30 sports, Betsafe also has categories for politics and business, specials, and TV events. The esports category covers games such as LOL, CS:GO, and Dota 2.

Betsafe Football Betting Tips

As you would expect, football is the most popular category at Betsafe. There are just over 40 available countries, and almost all of them have multiple league options. There are national and international competitions such as the Champions League, the Europa League, the World Cup, and the Copa America too. Some other big-brand sportsbooks have over 70 countries to choose from, but they may not have the same number of leagues and competitions. 

There is also a Football Specials subcategory, which is split into Award, Manager, Transfer, and Trophy specials. These cover outrights such as the Ballon d’Or winner, the next manager to leave, and the number of trophies certain teams will win this year. 

The market depth is good all across the board here. Most of the major European league matches will have around 180 markets, but some particularly big games will have over 250. Even some of the lesser-known leagues, such as the Finnish Veikkausliiga, will have over 100 markets per match. 

Betsafe Tennis Betting Tips

Tennis is another one of the biggest sports at Betsafe and can be found in the ‘most popular’ section of the sidebar. You can choose from the ATP, WTA, Challenger, and ITF men’s and women’s competitions. There is also an international category with the Fed Cup and Davis Cup tournaments.

Competitions like the Australian Open, French Open, and Wimbledon are all covered in full and will have the most market depth. Anything over 20 wagers is good for a tennis match, but this will drop to only the ‘match winner’ market for the doubles and smaller tournaments. 

Other Sports

As well as football and tennis, the ‘most popular’ heading in the sidebar contains MMA,  ice hockey, and basketball. 

MMA is an unusual choice over sports like baseball and volleyball, but Betsafe has a good selection of promotions. A lot of sportsbooks will only cover the UFC, but here you also have the choice of Bellator, Combate, and Glory. The UFC obviously has the most depth with around eight markets per fight. For the smaller promotions, only the ‘match winner’ market will be available. 

Ice hockey is without a doubt one of the most popular sports in the world, and Betsafe gives you the choice of over 15 available countries. The NHL is the big draw and like the football category, it has its own specials markets. This covers goalie performance, player performance, and team performance. The most popular matches in the big leagues will have over 100 available markets. 

Likewise, the NBA is the main basketball category and will have the most market depth. It also has its own specials, covering wagers such as the regular season MVP and rookie of the year. There are also WNBA and NCAA categories. Internationally, you have the option of the Eurocup, Champions League, and Euroleague tournaments. 

We ran a few comparisons with a couple of similarly sized sportsbooks to see how well Betsafe are pricing their wagers. The table below shows our results and as you can see, Betsafe seems to be offering very competitive odds. It’s worth remembering that this is only a small sample, however, and may not represent the Betsafe sportsbook’s pricing model as a whole.

Betsafe Live Betting

The ‘livebet’ link in the header menu will bring up the current in-play betting options. The available sports are listed across the top and there is also a handy search bar to help you find the match you’re looking for. You can scroll down through the options and see the live scores as well as a couple of the main markets. When the odds change, the price box will display either green or red to signify the odds getting better or worse. 

You can click the match link to see all the available markets. This will also give you the option of viewing the graphical match tracker (‘visual’) or the live stream, if it’s available.

Betsafe Website & Login

The Betsafe website uses a dark background rather than a white one, and this does help some of the colourful text options to stand out. There is an awful lot going on on every page, however, and this could be off-putting to new punters. Nevertheless, the pages are well laid out and the betting options are all well categorised. If you have a rudimentary working knowledge of the available markets you’ll have no problem navigating the Betsafe website. 

The Betsafe login function is also very straightforward. The red login button at the top right of the screen will open the sign-in form, and there is a help link just in case you’ve forgotten your password. 

Betting Products
With such a huge range of top-quality Betsafe betting products we really were spoilt for choice here. These are just some of world-class features that we were particularly impressed with.

Betsafe Cashout
The Betsafe cashout feature allows you to end your wager if you feel that your winnings are in jeopardy. This is particularly useful near the end of a match when the opposing team is threatening to upset your prediction. You can choose to cash out and take a portion of your winnings rather than risk losing the lot. 

Cashout isn’t available on every market at Betsafe, but you can see the ones which do support it by looking for the green ‘cashout’ icon.

Betsafe Statistics
Online statistics databases are a great way to look for performance patterns among the previous results of teams and individual players. These can then be used as betting tips to predict future outcomes. The Betsafe statistics section, powered by Sportradar, covers every conceivable metric for every player and team in every sport. You can also compare the stats of two teams head-to-head, and some sports even have statistics for the referees and stadiums.

Betsafe Blog
The ‘blog’ tab in the header menu will take you to the Betsafe Blog homepage. There are articles relating to betting odds, strategies, and tips for all your favourite sports, as well as game reviews and casino information. There is no search bar, but the ‘tags’ field on the right of screen allows you to select an option such as ‘Champions League betting’ or ‘tennis betting strategy’ and see all the relevant articles.

Betsafe Casino
The Betsafe casino has over 1600 games, including multiple varieties of blackjack, roulette, and video poker. There is also a massive collection of slots, including exclusive titles, branded games, and huge progressive slots with jackpots in the millions. The live casino section also has a good selection of roulette, blackjack, and poker titles. If you fancy a change from the regular games, you can play Deal Or No Deal, Dream Catcher, Monopoly, Top Card, and Lightning Dice against the live dealers.

The standalone poker section can be accessed in your browser or by downloading the software onto your desktop. There are cash games and tournaments, both single table and multi table. If you’re new to the game, there are plenty of tutorials and resources to help you learn.

Betsafe Mobile App

The Betsafe mobile app is a fully-fledged handheld version of the desktop website. You can access all the same sports betting options, including the in-play wagers, and also the casino and live casino. The promotions and customer service options are all the same too. No matter what device or operating system you’re using, the Betsafe mobile app provides the complete Betsafe experience. 

The Betsafe mobile website is also a great way to bet on-the-go if you aren’t able to download the app. It isn’t quite as slick or intuitive, but it still allows you to bet however you please when you’re out and about.

Betsafe Withdrawals & Deposits

For such a world-class sportsbook, Betsafe doesn’t have a huge range of payment options. That being said, it covers all the major credit cards and e-wallets, including PayPal, so the vast majority of punters will be catered for. The full list of Betsafe deposit options is listed as:

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Skrill
  • Neteller
  • Paysafe Card
  • Citadel
  • PayPal

NB: Mastercard, Paysafe Card, and Citadel do not support withdrawals. You can withdraw your winnings by bank transfer, however.

Betsafe Customer Service

The Betsafe customer service department is available 24/7, which is always the sign of a top-notch bookmaker. Not only that, but there is a great range of contact options too:

  • Live chat: click the chat icon on-site. 30 seconds average response time.
  • Email: [email protected] 30-60 minutes average response time. 
  • Telephone: No number listed. Type a short description of your issue along with your name, email address, and phone number into the callback form and Betsafe will get back to you. You can also choose whether you want them to call in 30-60 minutes, in 15-30 minutes, or ASAP.
  • Social media: You can find links to the Betsafe Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube account in the footer menu.

Betsafe FAQs

Is Betsafe legit?

It definitely is. The UK Gambling Commission, the Swedish Gambling Authority, and the Malta Gaming Authority are three of the most respected names in the industry. They wouldn’t grant licenses to Betsafe unless it was 100% legit.

Can I use a Betsafe bonus code?

Yes you can. There are offers relating to the sportsbook, the casino, and the poker platform. Check out our Betsafe bonus code page for more information.

What is the minimum amount I can withdraw from my account?

The min/max limits for both deposits and withdrawals are dependant upon the payment method that you’re using. If you’d like to see an exhaustive list, please refer to the full terms and conditions on the Betsafe website.

Are there resources for problem gamblers?

Yes, plenty. There is a ‘responsible gambling’ link in the footer menu which has information about deposit limits, reality checks, time outs, and self exclusion. There are also links to various help organisations such as GamCare, Gamblers Anonymous, Gam-Anon, and GamStop.
