The guys at ComeOn have worked tirelessly to try and create something a little bit different in the gambling sector – a feat that shouldn’t be underestimated. They are still very much in their ascendancy, but it’s been impressive to see just how much they have improved in the short time they have been in the industry.
They haven’t tried to target the larger brands in an attempt to go head to head with them, but instead have concentrated on a handful of sports and markets, doing them to the best of their ability. A no-frills site it may be, but the essence of online betting is to have fun by trying to win money and all the gimmicks that often are used as leverage to get people into a site, are essentially just for show.
The ComeOn Website
We briefly spoke about the site trying to be a little different, and none more so is this apparent than in their design. The black, white and green layout is really striking and it’s easy to navigate, which is imperative. It could be argued that it is a little on the boring side, but as punters we are looking for simplicity and functionality over style, all day.
The mobile app follows a simply theme in that whilst it’s not the best looking, just seems to work. With that in mind, we do feel that maybe it looks a little dated these days. Compared to some higher profile names in the industry, it does lack a little but if you are looking for a mobile app that will accompany a decent looking online site, you are in luck.
The coverage on site has probably seen the biggest changes over the relatively short time it’s been about. What started as a bookmaker that offered little, is now able to offer a wide range of sports and betting markets. As we mentioned earlier, the site doesn’t cover all the bases, with some notable sports such as cricket, rugby and even golf having fairly simplistic ranges of options to choose from.
But, your more mainstream sports such as football, horse racing and tennis are all really well covered and we reckon they are about as good as you will find when it comes to depth. Football matches are going to be getting well over 100 markets to choose from, with horse racing from all around the world covered.
It’s also worth noting that they have a pretty comprehensive American sports section which includes American football, baseball, basketball and ice hockey. All the major leagues are covered, but the inclusion of college and European leagues add a welcome layer of depth.
The pricing structure within the site is pretty decent, although nothing to really write home about. We tested multiple markets from multiple sports and found inconsistent results. Some prices were right up there with the best, but all too often we found that ComeOn lagged behind even the average odds for certain bets. We would advise that they are probably best used as part of a betting portfolio rather than on its own. This way you can target the times where they are well priced and avoid when simply not up to scratch.
Live Betting & Streaming
The live betting section is probably one of the sites strongest suites. Not only do you get a massive number of games making their way into the live betting section from the pre-game sections, you also get a good number of markets that are constantly changing as games progress.
The match stats on offer could well be the largest range that we have seen on any bookmaker. These include goal attempts, shots on target, corners, free kicks, off sides, throw ins, yellow/red cards, substitutions, saves, fouls and injuries. On top of that you get a live match centre to track what’s going on at any point in the match, such as what area of the pitch the ball is currently in.
The only downside is pricing, again. There’s a massive variance in the odds that were on offer against other bookmakers that we tested, which is pretty odd (no pun intended). Obviously with these types of markets it’s much harder to track accurately, but that was definitely the overall impression that we got.
At ComeOn you get to choose from a pretty decent range of banking methods, which include credit/debit cards, e-wallets and instant bank transfer. It’s worth noting that not all banking methods can be used on the app, for example, both Neteller and the bank transfer options aren’t available.
Deposits start from as little as £9 and will max out at £8,000 for e-wallets and £2,400 for credit/debit cards. Fees will be applied on any deposits made using either bank transfer, Skrill or Paysafecard, amassing 5% of the total transaction.
Withdrawals will start from as little as £10 and max out at £8,000 for e-wallets and £4,000 for credit/debit cards. If you wish to withdraw more than this, we recommend that you contact customer support prior to doing so. There are no fees reported to make a withdrawal, but it’s highly likely that you will be required to send in documents to verify your ID, so have these on hand.
