MarathonBet have friendly staff who are always able to lend a helping hand whether you decide to email, phone or speak to them through their live chat service. Their help extends round the clock, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, so if you do find yourself in a situation where you need to contact a member of the team, you can feel assured that your potential issue or question will be resolved.
Overall MarathonBet has one of the better sports betting sites that we have looked over. They have a reasonable amount of sport markets for customers to dive into and their in-play section has equally a great variety of different sports for you to choose from. Their current promotions are slightly lacklustre and is definitely something they could improve on to bring them in line with some of the bigger sites in the business. Everything else has been executed to a very high standard and we definitely recommend you hit that sign up button and see everything that they have to offer.
