Bet on Brazil first graced the scene during Euro 2016, the online betting website is definitely centred more towards football despite having a balanced list of other sporting markets they cover. The bookmakers’ front man is the former Scotland and Manchester United forward, Alan Brazil, who has since become a Talksport pundit and his popularity has helped drive a lot of interest from the public for the website.
Website – Layout & Interface:
At first glance, the website has a very fresh and unique finish to it and they have executed a great use of a jade green almost teal on grey colour scheme. The layout deserves a similar amount of praise as everything is very conveniently laid out which makes navigating this site very pleasurable and never a chore.
Across the top of the website you will find the usual tabs including Sports Betting, Casino, Promotions and an About Alan section. Descending down the left hand side is where you can see the live sports section, highlights and a complete A-Z of the sports that Bet on Brazil cover. Below this you can see the all of the different football leagues hosted and there is even an option to search for competitions and games by countries.
There’s no second guessing if you are asking yourself which sport Bet on Brazil take the most pride in. In fact there are more football options than you could shake a proverbial stick at, Bet on Brazil do football well, very well. All competitions from the champions league to the Serbian Superliga are extensively covered. Having such a wide diversity of football leagues is definitely a good proposition to keep the punters happy and we would definitely consider them to be one of the best online betting sites for anyone who is equally football orientated.
There are plenty of other sports to get stuck into at Bet on Brazil, sports such as Baseball, Boxing, Basketball, Darts, Cricket, F1, Horse Racing, Golf, Ice Hockey, Handball, Snooker, Rugby Union, Specials, Volleyball and Tennis. By clicking on the sport you are interested in, you are then taken to a page with a full list of upcoming matches and events that you can pick from.
Welcome Bonus & Promotions:
As of right now Bet on Brazil have a £50 welcome bonus for all new customers, all you need to do is sign up and create an account and then make a deposit. This bonus is a 100% matched deposit bonus on amounts up to £50, meaning if you deposit the full £50 your Bet on Brazil account balance will show that you have £100 to play around with. It’s also worth noting that the minimum amount you can deposit to be eligible for the matched deposit bonus is £10, which is perfect if you are on the look out for a new website or thinking about swapping over.
Another fantastic promotion to keep an eye out for is “Big Al’s In-Play Club” this works by staking at least £20 or more on any in-play markets between Monday and Thursday where the minimum odds are 5/6, Bet on Brazil will then give you a £5 free bet to use for the weekend.
If football accumulators are your passion then “ Big Al’s Acca Club” is sure to entice you, all that is required to be eligible for this is to bet at least £50 or more on football accumulators with a minimum of 4 selections and with odds of 4/1 or greater and you’ll receive two bets worth £10 each. The free bets do expire within 72 hours though so don’t hang around with them.
Bet on Brazil have their own in-play console that customers can find by going to “live sports” on the navigation bar which is situated on the left hand side of the site. Once there you are presented with a list of all the sports and events that are currently live that they accept in-play bets for. Due to Bet on Brazils lack of diversity when it comes to sporting markets that they cover, unless you are specifically looking for in-play football betting, there are other sites that have a greater selection of in-play options for more sports.
Mobile & Tablet:
Due to the website being quite knew, it is understandable that Bet on Brazil haven’t added betting application for mobile devices yet. Their website is fully optimised for a smaller screen if you head over to the desktop address from your mobile phone or tablet and we have been recently told that there are plans to implement one in the not so distant future.
One area we have found that Bet on Brazil specifically lacks in, is that customers can only credit their account via credit and debit cards, again we suspect that this is due to how young the site is and that they definitely will bump up the range of different payment methods when they get the chance.
When it comes to withdrawing winnings, the usual times apply here as credit and debit cards take in the region of 3-5 days before the funds are shown in your bank account.
Bet on Brazil have a FAQ / Help question should you ever be in the need of help, this is the first port of call. Should you need further assistance Bet on Brazil have a live chat function which puts you straight through to a member of staff so they can give you help directly. The only downside is that the live chat isn’t 24 hours a day and is operated between Monday and Friday from 12:00-17:30. If you want to log your question or query outside of those hours it is probably best to send them an email so they can respond to it as soon as they are available, their email address can be found on their website at the very bottom.
For a company that hasn’t even been around for year at this point, Bet on Brazil are certainly doing a lot of things right. They may not have as much variety of sporting markets when compared to the likes of a Goliath like Bet365, but as far as we are concerned; when it comes to football you can surely do no wrong. They even have a fantastic in-play console that surpasses expectation when you look at the age of the website.
There are 2 other areas that could see some improvement, firstly by adding more payment methods. Having only Visa and MasterCard does tend to limit your audience especially if someone is looking to swap over to a new site and their old favourite site had their preferred method of payment. Secondly is customer support, it is becoming more and more common within the industry to have members of staff on hand to help deliver the best service to customers round the clock. Having 24/7 customer support is a good way of putting the customers’ mind at ease should any problems arise.
Overall Bet on Brazil have certainly made a positive imprint in the online sports betting industry and we expect to see a lot of the limitations ironed out as the company keeps expanding and growing and if your weakness is football there is more than enough to keep even the most seasoned punter interested.
