Genting are one of the biggest names in gambling in the UK, although that name is more associated with real-world casinos than sports books. Genting Group is a Malaysian conglomerate with annual revenues in excess of 17 billion Malaysian ringgits (around three billion pounds).
To welcome new customers, Genting Bet offers an LBS-exclusive bonus bet that could be worth up to £25. Note that this offer is not available if you sign up to Genting Casino without using the link that’s available here – the normal offer is £10.
To qualify for this bonus bet offer, all you need to do is sign up with Genting Bet, then place your first bet at odds of Evens (2.00) or greater at the site. If your bet is not victorious, then Genting Bet will refund your stake up to a maximum of £25 as a bonus bet.
Your bonus bet must then be wagered on a single bet with odds no greater than 4/1 (5.0). Your bonus bet will expire in fourteen days if it is not used. Your bonus bet is not refundable, so only any winnings from your bonus bet will be paid into your real money account, not the stake/bonus bet itself.
There are a number of countries listed in this offer’s terms and conditions that are not eligible for this promotion. If you are from the UK then you are fine, but if you are not from the UK then it is better that you check the offer’s T&Cs before you apply for this no-risk bet offer.
The T&Cs also state that players making their first deposit via a Skrill or Ukash (now part of Paysafecard) account are not eligible to receive this bonus offer.
Like many other sports betting sites. Genting Bet offers insurance on your accumulators. If you place at least a five-team ‘acca’ at the site and one of your selections lets you down, then Genting will return you your money back up to a limit of £20 as a bonus bet.
All of Genting’s online activities have a specific, unfussy branding and this has been carried over into Genting Bet. The colour scheme of red and black with a touch of green works extremely well, and looks especially elegant on tablets.
The site takes an uncluttered approach which is quite uncommon with sports books sites where you tend to be overwhelmed with facts and figures at times. The latest top sporting events are listed on the left-hand menu, followed by that day’s football betting opportunities. Below that all the available wagering markets are available.
All of Genting’s other gambling portals, including their online casino, live casino and poker room – are available via the menu at the top of the screen.
Oddly for such an extensive platform, Genting Bet only seems to accept debit and credit cards. On their ‘Payment Methods’ page no eWallet solutions are listed at all, nor any other other payment method aside from ‘Genting Pay’. We note this as odd given that both Skrill and Ukash are listed in the no-risk bet terms and conditions.
The minimum amount you can deposit is £10, and deposits are transacted immediately. The minimum withdrawal is also £10, and no fees are involved. Withdrawals take between three and four business days to process.
‘Genting Pay’ is a payment method where you can add money to your account by directly depositing cash at a Genting Casino.
Both Genting’s real-world casinos and online offerings have a classy reputation, and Genting Bet is no exception to that. The site both looks superb and functions brilliantly.
There are downsides though. That free bet offer is not the more generous welcome offer we’ve ever seen, and there are plenty of punters throughout the globe whom are excluded from participating in it because of their current country of residence. The lack of payment options beyond credit and debit cards is a bit of a surprise too.
Still, with a solid company name like Genting behind you, you can’t really go far with Genting Bet. Why not sign up at at least take advantage of that exclusive £25 bonus bet offer?
