Betshop is taking on the big-name bookmakers by offering the full online betting experience. Can it compete with the likes of Ladbrokes and Bet365? We decided to check out Betshop.com for ourselves. This full review will help you decide whether Betshop is a worthy contender or just a pretender.

Betshop Review

Betshop has gone all-out to offer the most complete betting website that they possibly can. The only thing missing is multiplayer poker, but hopefully this will be added in a future update. Currently you can enjoy not only a well-designed sportsbook with in-play betting, but also a fully-loaded online casino with over 500 games. There are video slots, progressive slots, and scratchcards, as well as blackjack, roulette, bingo, and much more. The live casino section also has plenty of real dealers waiting to play against you.

The Betshop website is operated by GameMaster NV. It is fully licensed and regulated by the Curacao Gaming Control Board, meaning that everything has to be kept legit and above board.

Betshop Odds & Markets

Betshop covers all the top leagues and competitions for all the biggest global sports including:

SoccerBasketballTennis
VolleyballMotorsportsAmerican Football
BoxingIce HockeyRugby
CricketBaseballSnooker
HandballMMAAussie Rules
Table TennisBadmintonSquash
Beach Soccer


It’s good to see that some niche sports are also catered for, however a Specials category with entertainment and politics wagers would be a worthwhile addition. Esports are also becoming increasingly popular, and Betshop would do well to include them.

Betshop Football Betting Tips

Soccer is by far the biggest draw at Betshop. There are hundreds of thousands of wagers available at any one time, which is hardly surprising with over 40 countries to choose from. Many of those have multiple leagues and tournaments to choose from, and there are also options for international club and country competitions. The UEFA Champions League and the World Cup would be two of the most popular events.

The market depth is huge, with over 450 wagers available for the big Premier League matches. Betshop has done a good job of cutting down the amount of information on-screen at once by keeping most of the wagers hidden behind market group links. You can click ‘correct score’, ‘over/under’, or ‘total goals’, for example, and view the appropriate wagers. 

Betshop Ice Hockey Betting Tips

Ice hockey is the most popular sport at Betshop after soccer. Although there not nearly as many options, you still have 13 countries and international competitions to choose from. Obviously the NHL is the big one, but there are also multiple leagues available in Switzerland, Sweden, Russia, Norway, Germany, and the Czech Republic. 

The market depth for ice hockey games extends only to the match outcome and the over/under. 

Other Sports

Besides soccer and ice hockey, tennis and basketball have the most coverage. Handball completes the top five, which is an unusual choice over baseball or volleyball, but nonetheless it has 10 national and international categories. 

The tennis link has all the WTA and ITF men’s and women’s tournaments, with the big matches having around 20 wagers. The doubles matches and smaller competitions will only have a handful of markets; usually the match outcome and either odds/even or the 1st and 2nd set winner. Basketball has good market depth, however, with over 100 wagers for most popular matches. There are also plenty of outrights for all the major European leagues. 

We wanted to see how well Betshop was pricing its wagers so we ran a few comparisons with similarly-sized sportsbooks. The table below shows our results and as you can see, Betshop is offering competitive odds across the board. It seems to be that the higher odds are more competitively priced, but this is only a random sample and may not be true of Betshop’s pricing as a whole. It does, however, show that you should always shop around if you want to get the best value for money.

Betshop Live Betting

You can access the Betshop in-play betting section by clicking ‘live betting’ in the header menu. You can choose to look at your options in the overview, or you can select the ‘event’ view, which is more like the standard sportsbook layout. There are links to the schedule, where you can see which future matches will support live betting, and also the statistics section.

All the available sports have live in-play matches at one time or another. The market depth relies heavily on the popularity of both the sport and the teams competing, but overall there is a good amount of choice. Football matches can have over 100 wagers, while tennis matches can have over 30. This will dwindle down to only a handful of options for the smaller leagues and competitions, but that’s still more than many other sportsbooks will offer.

Although there is no live streaming at Betshop, most games will have an animated match tracker and live statistics updates. This enables you to keep up with the action and helps you to plan your next wager.

Betshop Website & Login

The Betshop website is designed in a very clear and precise manner. Although initially there are a lot of wagers displayed on the landing page, they are laid out in such a way that it doesn’t look cluttered. It’s easy to make sense of what you’re seeing and you can always minimise the events that you aren’t interested in. 

Like so many other bookmakers, Betshop uses the industry-standard three-column layout. If you’ve ever placed a bet at an online sportsbook before, chances are you have encountered a similar design. This is great news for novice punters, as it means you don’t have to spend your time learning how to navigate a new layout. 

The Betshop login is a super-simple one-click feature; just input your username and password at the top right of the screen and hit the ‘login’ button. If you’ve forgotten your password, there’s a link there to help. 

Betting Products
It was a tough job having to narrow down the list of top betting products to feature here. Betshop certainly has a lot going for it, but these are the things that stood out for us.

Betshop Odds Filter
At the top of the sidebar you’ll see an option marked ‘Odds Filter’. This innovative feature allows you to drag the slider bar and select a certain price range to filter the results in the centre of the screen. If you have a lot of results it can take some time to compile, however, so try to narrow down your search before you use it.

Betshop Statistics
Online statistics databases are one of the best ways to research a future wager. You can check the current form of your team (and the individual players) as well as looking for performance patterns in their previous matches. The Betshop statistics library is powered by Sportradar and covers all the sporting categories. You’ll find hundreds of metrics for every aspect of every game, as well as the ability to compare two teams head-to-head. There are even statistics for the referees in some sports.

Betshop Virtual Sports
Many sportsbooks no longer offer virtual sports, but Betshop wants to appeal to the broadest possible audience. You’ll find football, tennis, horse racing, greyhounds, cycling, and speedway here, many of those with multiple varieties available. The virtual sports have been developed by LEAP and 1X2 Gaming, two of the top development houses in the betting industry.

Betshop Casino
Along with the sportsbook, the online casino is the jewel in the Betshop crown. With over 450 slots games and 70 card and table games, there is definitely no shortage of choice. The amount of variety is huge too, covering everything from classic three-reel games to huge branded progressive slots with massive jackpots. The card and table games section also has a great range of blackjack, roulette, and video poker variations.

The live casino area allows you to play roulette, blackjack, baccarat, dice, sic bo, and Deal Or No Deal against real live casino dealers. These have been created by Evolution Gaming, who have developed many of the world’s most popular online casino games.
