Mobilebet have only been about since 2014, making them one the new breeds of online betting. As the name would suggest, it’s was the mobile market that they originally set out to target, but that soon expanded, with an online version of the sportsbook quickly appearing on the scene.
Those behind the brand have clearly worked hard in making it an innovative betting site, which can see as soon as you land on page. They cover a massive range of sports and with it a good range of betting markets to choose from. This all adds to the ‘complete’ feel that they are now able to offer.
The MobileBet Website
There’s a really interesting twist in terms of design, which allows MobileBet to standout from the crowd. The green, black and white colour scheme is really distinctive. Whilst the overall layout will be fairly familiar to those that have used some of the smaller brands previously, it still is able to offer up a quality betting experience.
The mobile site is the company’s bread and butter and as we mentioned, was the first launch for the brand. What’s great about this is that they are doing things back to front from the norm by bringing mobile betting before online betting. The app is available to download on iOS and Android devices, but if you enter the site with any smartphone you will instantly be re-directed to the mobile version.
We preferred using the mobile version rather than the online site and whilst both serve a purpose, via mobile makes jumping between sports and markets that little bit easier. The site contains a casino offering as well, the mobile versions carries much less in terms of advertising for that, which can be a little intruding when you are using the full site.
One of the best features on site, and probably the most surprising, was the sheer number of sports that they were able to cater for. They ranged in terms of the number of markets on offer, but fans of football, horse racing, American sports and tennis aren’t going to be left disappointed.
Football clearly plays a huge part in the makeup of the betting markets and whilst most people who use the site will be likely to bet on this sport, it does make it a little one dimensional in our opinion. Having said that, they are able to provide a good range of football betting markets. It was particularly interesting to see how well it works for accumulator betting, giving you the option to choose from certain markets in a long-list layout.
The horse racing section has probably seen the biggest improvement in terms of the number of races and the quality of the coverage. But, comparing it to the likes of Ladbrokes and bet365, it doesn’t quite compete, lacking that extra level of information. There’s no racing previews taken the main providers such as the Racing Post or Racing UK.
Another interesting inclusion and market that is simply exploding at the minute is that of E-sports. More and more bookmakers are starting to provide comprehensive coverage of the major leagues for the popular games, all of which can be found here.
One of the few downsides that we found was the general pricing structure. From the markets that we tested we found them at best to be average, but all too many times they were falling just short of what we would expect from one of the top bookmakers.
Live Betting & Streaming
The in-play betting section is arguably the hub of the sportsbook for us and it’s here where we found that they performed really well. The first thing to note is the number of games that went live and the number of sports that were covered. Without being able to say exactly how many games switched to live betting, we would put the number at around 80%, which is a high conversion rate.
The live betting section also includes a ton of data on certain matches, with everything from goal attempts to the number fouls in a game. The Visualization graphics will show you what’s going on in games, be they football or other sports such as basketball and tennis.
There is a fairly decent range of banking options with that include Visa, MasterCard, Apple Pay Neteller and Skrill, to name but a few. What’s great is that all methods can be used via the Mobilebet app and deposits start from as little as £8, maxing out at £8,000 with Skrill and Neteller. Fees of up to 5% may be charged, deposits are processed instantly.
Withdrawal options are little more limited, with a couple of the deposit options not being accessible for this. Withdrawals will start from £10 and max out at £8,000 per day. You will get two free withdrawals each month and then you will be charged £4 per transaction from then on before it resets again at the end of the month. E-wallets such as Neteller and Skrill will be processed within 24 hours and all other methods will take 2 to 7 working days.
