Betsafe Bonuses, Offers & Promotions – Something for Everyone & Lots of It!

Bonuses, Offers & PromotionsBetsafe offers bonuses for sportsbook bettors, casino players, and those looking to try their hand at poker. There are welcome bonuses in all three areas, and there are some ongoing bonuses as well.

Sportsbook Bonus

If you want to have a punt on sporting events, you can claim a 100% welcome bonus up to the value of £30.

There is a £10 minimum deposit bonus and you will have to wager the bonus a number of times before you can withdraw it.

Betsafe Casino Deposit & Reload Bonuses

Casino players can claim a welcome package worth £ 1,000. It’s worth noting that this isn’t one single bonus, but rather an initial welcome bonus and two reload bonuses.

The first deposit bonus is 100% up to £250. You will then get your first reload bonus worth 50% up to £250. Finally you can claim a third reload bonus of 100% up to £500.

Live Casino Bonus

You can also claim a £20 live casino bonus at Betsafe. This can be used on blackjack or roulette and requires a deposit of £20 to activate.

Poker Bonus

Poker players will be able to claim a welcome bonus worth £1,000. This is the maximum bonus possible, and you can claim smaller bonuses if you wish. They start at £25.

As with most poker bonuses online, the cash is released as you play, rather than in a lump sum.


Sports Betting – The Real Deal is Here

Betsafe offers a full sportsbook, allowing you to bet on most sports events you could possibly think of. The Betsson Group, which runs Betsafe, is a specialist when it comes to sports betting, and so the sportsbook is a cut above average here.

You can bet on football, tennis, boxing, cricket, F1, golf, rugby, MMA, snooker, and many others. You can even bet on some niche sports like darts and volleyball, if you wish.

There are plenty of markets to bet on, too, mostly in football. You can bet on match result, number of goals, home or away wins, half and full-time scores, the correct score, half with most goals, and a number of other markets. This isn’t quite Bet365, but it’s close and a wider range of markets is open than at most other online bookmakers.

As far as leagues and events go you can bet on EPL, La Liga, Serie A, the Bundesliga, and all sorts of championships from the World Cup to the Euros and most tournaments in between.

The sportsbook is pretty well designed and easy to use, with a black background and red and white colour scheme. We found our way around easily and there are a few cool features like betting tips and price boosts to check out.


Betsafe Online Casino – Everything You Require

Just about every casino game you might want to play can be found at Betsafe. There are hundreds of titles in all, spanning the entire spectrum from slots to table and card games to video poker.

Software providers include NetEnt, Microgaming, Play n’ Go, Thunderkick, and a few others. These are all reputable and respected companies, so game quality is good across the board.

Now let’s take a closer look at the games by category.

Slots

There are lots of video slots on offer here, with 573 games in total. You can find everything from the latest released to more old-school slots with bars and numbers. Most of the selection comes from NetEnt and Microgaming, which if you know anything about casino games means you will have access to the best games online. There are also a few games from Thunderkick and Play n’ Go worth checking out if you fancy a change from the same big-name games.

Popular NetEnt slot games which we recommend starting with include Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, Twin Spin, and Guns n’ Roses. Microgaming titles worth a spin include Lost Vegas, Motorhead, Game of Thrones, and Mega Moolah.

For a progressive jackpot slot which won’t cost a fortune to play but which will give you a chance to win millions start with Mega Moolah from Microgaming.

There are also a few high limit slots from IGT and WMS which you can spend thousands per spin on for bigger payouts. Check out some of the Cleopatra slots to get started as a high roller.

Table Games

There are lots of table games on offer including baccarat, blackjack, casino hold ‘em, casino stud, Caribbean stud, pai gow poker, and Texas Hold ‘em.

There are 10 variants of roulette alone, with French, American, and European versions.

You can also enjoy 13 video poker games including deuces wild, jacks or better, joker poker, and all american.

Live Games

There are 91 games in the Betsafe live casino. Most of these are variants on a few core, main games. They include baccarat, blackjack, roulette, and several types of poker. There is also a live casino just for VIP members.


Betsafe Bingo

There is no specific bingo section. If this is a must for you head over to Ladbrokes where games start every other minute.


Betsafe Poker

Betsafe offers live poker tournaments against players from around the world. This is one of the better poker rooms we have seen, and there are some neat features as well as just the ability to play.

You can attend poker school, can play practice rounds, can keep a record of your wins and losses, and can enter tournaments regularly.

There is also a poker client for mobile devices, so you can play on the go.


Betsafe Games

We didn’t see anything to be concerned about in this department. All the games are provided by reputable providers and are well-known, quality games.

UK and Malta gaming licences ensure that games are checked regularly and payouts are closely monitored.


Betsafe Mobile Apps

Mobile AppsYou can download Betsafe apps directly on the site for both Android and iOS devices. You can also enter your e-mail and have it sent to you.

Apps are available for sports betting, casino gaming, and poker. They are all fantastic quality, and you can also play directly on the mobile flash site if you prefer.


Deposit & Withdrawal Options

The following payment methods are available at Betsafe:

  • Credit cards
  • Debit cards
  • PayPal
  • Neteller
  • Skrill
  • Paysafecard
  • Bank Transfer

E-wallets are faster, safer, and offer a level of privacy other payment methods don’t. Do be aware, though, that using e-wallets on your first deposit will exclude you from some offers at Betsafe.


Languages and Currencies

Codeta is available in English, Swedish, Norwegian, German, Latvian, Polish, Spanish, Estonian, and Lithuanian.

You can use the following currencies: GBP, EUR, SEK, NOK, PLN, and USD.


Security and Fairness

Security & FairnessThis casino is above board. The Betsson Group is a well-known and respected brand, and runs many sites. Add the gaming licences on top, and you can have every confidence in this firm.

We do think the wagering terms at Betsafe are a little higher than they should be. Depending on the bonus in question, you could be looking at x40 or x50 before you can withdraw. For the sake of comparison, Bet365 offers bonuses with x20 wagering terms.

Other than that we have no concerns here. This is a great site on the whole and is safe and secure.
