Website – Layout & Interface:
Their website has an exceptionally professional feel about it, that you see represented through their casinos all over the globe. They take pride in giving their loyal customers an excellent platform to bet on their favourite sports, with their minimalistic yet majestically laid out website that is both simple to use and to navigate around.
As soon as you land on Gentingbets’ homepage you are greeted with their friendly red, black and white colour scheme, their logo is displayed proudly at the very top centre of the site, with the login and join now options immediately on the right. Instead of having headers with different links to various sections of the site, the main hub that customers will use to navigate is a drop down menu that is accessed from the top left corner.
The main body of the homepage is divided into live events currently happening and below this you can find upcoming events. Their bet slip is situated on a bar along the bottom of the page which is also where you can quickly access their A-Z list of sports as well as a free bets tab.
Whilst Gentingbet don’t have the largest selection of sporting markets that you can expect to find, the sports that they do cover are done very well. So if you are looking for markets ranging from American Football, Aussie Rules, Boxing/MMA, Baseball, Basketball, Cycling, Cricket, Darts, eSports, Football, GAA Hurling, GAA Football, Golf, Horse Racing, Handball, Ice Hockey, Motor Sports, Pool, Rugby Union, Rugby League, Specials, Snooker, Tennis, or Volleyball then Gentingbet certainly have your interests covered.
If we look at football as an example, you can choose leagues ranging all the way from the Vietnamese under 19s all the way to the Serbian Super League and everything in-between. Once you have selected the league and match you are interested in you are then presented with all of the markets offered by Gentingbet, such as Match Winner, Total Goals (O/U), Team to Score First, Half-Time Goals (O/U), Half-Time Result, Draw No Bet, Double Chance and plenty of others.
Welcome Bonus & Promotions:
There’s not a great amount of customer orientated promotions here at Gentingbet, their welcome bonus is a £10 first bet insurance. You can redeem this by depositing and wagering £10 or more on a sport market where the odds are 2.0 or higher and if it loses you will be awarded £10 as a free bet.
Gentingbet currently offer best odds guaranteed on the UK and Irish horse racing events as well as insurance for football accumulators that are spread across all markets, games and leagues; and this means if one team lets you down you will be reimbursed for your entire stake on amounts up to £20
Gentingbet definitely lack in available sporting markets when it comes to in-play betting, despite having an otherwise fantastic console. Customers who wish to bet in-play are limited to only 3 sports, which are Football, Cricket and Snooker. If it’s any consolation, the markets and prices have been done to a great standard and all of the significant aspects that make in-play betting what it is and feel so cutting edge are all there.
Mobile & Tablet:
Gentingbet have a mobile application that IOS users can find and download from the Apple app store. Unfortunately there isn’t an application available for Android users but this is surely going to change in future. Whether you’re Android or IOS, the application isn’t a requirement to enjoy what Gentingbet have to offer and their site has been fully optimised to fit the small screen by heading there from your mobile browser.
Gentingbet accept a wide array of different cards including both debit and credit cards, where the minimum deposit is £10. Another method of payment is Skrill which requires you to deposit a minimum of £50, one huge benefit of using an e-wallet like Skrill is the speed at which you can withdraw any winnings as the money is usually in your account within 24 hours. Customers also have the choice to transfer money over to the sports betting site from the casino at no extra cost.
Gentingbet have fantastic customer support that is always on hand, 24 hours a day 7 days a week to assist customers with any potential questions or issues they might have. There are 3 ways to contact their support team such as live chat, telephone and via email, the most preferred method is the live chat as they are extremely helpful and efficient at responding. If you prefer speaking over the phone then Gentingbet allow you to request a callback so you incur no cost from selecting this method.
Its great to see what Gentingbet have done with their prior success in the casino business and use their vast knowledge to transfer the same skills over to having a praiseworthy sportsbook. Their layout feels very prestigious and the colour scheme definitely reflects their brand in a refreshing way. There are a couple of things holding them back though, namely the amount of customer based promotions they currently have, this could definitely be upped and is a major incentive to get more new customers to visit and play here. Secondly, they could certainly improve the amount of accepted payment methods to bring them more in line with some of the bigger companies in the business who have a list longer than your arm of accepted Payment methods. Overall the site is in a great place and they provide their customers with a great experience, if you want to switch over from the sports betting section you can access everything they offer from the same account.
