One of the biggest names in online sports betting with customers in more than 100 countries around the world, Betsafe have also made the move into slots and other casino games. So, as well as being able to bet on all the biggest games in a huge variety of sports, you can also have a lot of fun on the casino tables and slots.
Betsafe is headquartered in Malta and licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gaming Authority. The company was founded back in 2006 and is owned by the BML Group.
The Betsafe website may not be as glitzy as some other online casino and betting sites but there is something to say for simplicity. All the pages are neat and compact, so they are easy to use and you don’t get lost navigating the pages.
However, the design is slightly dark which can be a little distracting at times. All the games are categorised on the left-hand side of the page so it’s easy to find what you are looking for, but if you don’t know the exact title it can be a little tricky to locate.
The majority of the games at Betsafe are NetEnt although with so many to choose from that shouldn’t put you off. There is a no download mode available so you don’t have to download anything on to your device but you will need Flash player installed to play on your browser. Simply click on the game you want to play and away you go. The graphics and sound of most of the games is exceptional so you will have a really good time playing.
The site features a huge number of games, with almost 1,000 different slot machines, table games and video games, although most of these are located in the slots sections, with around 990 in total. You can find all the big names to play, including Starburst and Winterberries and a whole range of animated games too.
There are around 108 casino games to play at Betsafe and some of them come with life-changing jackpots. There are 11 roulette games, 18 blackjack games and 51 other table games to choose from. You can also choose to play one of the 14 video poker games.
The choice of roulette is particularly impressive with French and European editions, as well as Diamond and Immersive. Video poker variants include Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild and All American Double Up. All games are available in both practice and real money mode, so you can play for a while to get your bearings before putting any money on it.
Live dealer games
There are also some live dealer games with the Betsafe live platform being among the best on the market. There are five options to play: Roulette, Blackjack, VIP Baccarat, Casino Hold ’em and Three Card Poker.
The pay-out rate is the percentage of return to the player and should be as close to 100% as possible. Betsafe published its pay-out rates for various games and the numbers were very positive. Classic slots started at 89.1% and went up to 99%, which is obviously very good news indeed. Video slots started at 95% and went up to 98%, all of which means the house edge, or percentage that the house takes from the game, is low.
This is always the most important part of any review of any online gaming site. Naturally, you don’t want any issues to arise and generally they don’t. But when there is money involved, you need to know that any issues that do arise are sorted as quickly as possible.
Betsafe offers support around the clock and agents usually answer the phone or an online chat option within 60 seconds. Even email responses, which can be slow for some other online gaming sites, are fast. However, the downside is that there is no free hotline so any phone communication you make will be subject to a fee. However, the chat and email functions remain free.
Licensing and customer safety are also important and Betsafe does take these issues very seriously. They aim to provide a safe gaming atmosphere where users can be sure that their financial information is safe and secure. Holding two gaming licenses, you can be sure that Betsafe do everything they can to make sure all your details and financial information is safely stored. They use the latest SSL encryption technology and you can see the VeriSign seal of approval. There are also a number of player protection tools in place, such as deposit limits and self-exclusion options.
