Sportsbet.io wouldn’t be among our top cricket betting choices if we didn’t consider them trustworthy. Whilst only equipped with a Curacao license, this is a bookmaker and online casino that can easily be judged on its own merit.
Indeed, they have several partnerships with European football clubs as well as Sao Paolo. Brett Lee, the famous Australian cricketeer, has been a brand ambassador for them for years.
In 2019, they’ve received the Player’s Choice award from AskGamblers and SBC game them an award in 2020. Last year they were in the running for Brand of the Year at the EGR awards.
In summary, Sportsbet.io is a favourite with many and held in very high regard indeed. Additionally, we have found only a handful of unhappy remarks from players and no unusual complaints about them, which all bookmakers have to deal with.
Cricket betting and other sports
Of course, cricket betting is among the top sports to bet on at Sportsbet.io, especially when you login from India. When you visit the sportsbook and select cricket as your sport, you will see the in-play options, matches coming up in the next 24 hours, futures, outrights, leagues, news and even virtual cricket.
At the time of our review, the following events were covered:
National Cricket League Australia (women’s)
- Big Bash League
- The Ashes
- International Test Series
- International ODIs
- George Pie Super Smash
- Super Smash (women’s)
- Premier League (SRL)
Outright betting options for the T20 World Cup were also listed, though the event was still some time away.
On the whole, we were quite happy with what was on offer and consider Sportsbet.io a solid option for cricket betting with plenty of events available and markets opening up as the matches draw nearer or are going live.
The odds were also competitive, which is great. This bookmaker is not completely new on the block, and you will even find betting boosts, free bet offers and other specials to enhance your betting experience. There is also the option to use a bet builder to help you along. Cash out is also available at Sportsbet.io.
Of course, if you are interested in other sports, you will find a decent choice here as well. There is football, tennis, basketball, American Football, rugby, baseball, golf and much more. We counted at least two dozen sports to bet on as well as eSports. And there is kabaddi betting available, which is excellent.
Keen punters interested in live betting will find good options and plenty of markets at Sportsbet.io. Matches are animated for the most part, though live streaming is not available, which is a pity. Perhaps it will be implemented in the future.
Games and more
Sportsbet.io is also a fully-fledged online casino. The casino is very well sorted, meaning we get useful filter options and game categories, an excellent selection of providers and tournaments as well as promotions.
You can click on the different game categories and filter according to provider or sort by popularity, alphabetically or even RTP among other options. There are several dozen game developers available and easily 1,500 games.
The library even includes jackpots and whilst NetEnt and Yggdrasil only supply the smaller jackpot games, Microgaming has included several Mega Moolah games, which means you can win massive jackpots at Sportsbet.io.
You have a live dealer category as well as the Bombay club, which feels a little bit more exclusive. Both sections provide plenty of live table games, including Andar Bahar and Teen Patti besides the usual favourites we get at most live casinos.
The casino and live casino at Sportsbet.io are certainly worth a visit even if you’re not much interested in sports betting and prefer to simply play some slots.
Promotions and bonuses
Among all the promotions and special offers, we could find at Sportsbet.io, a dedicated welcome offer did not seem to be available. None was featured in any case, and we did look everywhere.
Instead, we found the Clubhouse, which is exclusive to crypto players, where free bets and price boosts were available among other benefits.
The casino also offers various promotions, most of which seem to be seasonal (as in Christmas or Halloween specials) or simply available for a limited time. We found special promotions for various sport events, including kabaddi and cricket.
There is also a VIP club, which comes with extra benefits for regular players.
A lot is going on at Sportsbet.io, though since these promotions change often, we wouldn’t really want to introduce them in detail here.
Keep in mind that all promotions come with bonus conditions, which you should read carefully before claiming an offer.
One type of promotion we can usually recommend are tournaments, which are available for casino players and sports betting alike.
Whilst there is a link for ‘Payment Options’ at Sportsbet.io, it only really takes you to the help centre, where you can browser various topics on payment methods, including cryptocurrencies, traditional currencies and some payment methods available.
There is no overview that lists all available payment methods, including the usual details we like to see. But plenty of information is available in the help section and whilst you may have to do some searching, it’s not too difficult to find pertinent details.
As such, we know that the following deposit and withdrawal methods are available:
- Credit Card
- Net Banking
- Bitcoin and other cryptos
Be aware that the focus at Sportsbet.io is definitely on cryptocurrencies and using them comes with its own benefits. You are able to buy cryptocurrencies at Sportsbet.io using several of the above payment methods, which is certainly worth your consideration.
We couldn’t find a withdrawal limit in the terms and conditions, which may very well mean there is none.
Of course, you will need to get your ID verified at some point. Sportsbet.io provides information about their KYC process via a separate link. We generally recommend that you get this sorted sooner rather than later.
The support at Sportsbet.io is available via live chat and email 24/7. You can access the live chat via a link via the menu on the left-hand side. We’d prefer a speech bubble solution that is overlayed on every site, but this works as well and only a minor nit-pick.
Additionally, there’s a comprehensive help centre, where many different topics are covered. It is a little bit clunky in use as you have to click through the topics, the various questions and finally land on more detailed answers. Not the smoothest of experiences here, though you eventually get to the point.
If an answer is not satisfactory, you also have the opportunity to contact the live chat or send an email from here, which is convenient.
The customer service enjoys generally a good reputation, and we found the site and all its facilities quite helpful and transparent.
Sportsbet.io comes with a very modern site, which is easy to navigate, has a useful layout and makes browsing mostly enjoyable (except for the aforementioned help centre). The bet slip is also easy to use and the whole site just feels fresh and fun at the same time. We like the icons used for the different sports at the top of the page in the sportsbook.
And in the casino the different game sections are handy and useful as well. There is really nothing to complain about here and using Sportsbet.io is simply utterly enjoyable. Plus, we really liked that we can change the theme here. Our preference is for the dark theme, but you can switch the little toggle at the bottom of the left-hand side menu and change it to the light theme, which is bright and pleasant.
The mobile site is excellent, of course, and also provides full functionality. But not long ago Sportsbet.io also launched a dedicated app, which is available for Android and iOS, giving users a smooth mobile experience as well.
As we have mentioned before, Sportsbet.io has long been one of our top cricket betting sites and whilst it has been a while since we last updated our review, we have found only improvements to this cricket betting page and can wholeheartedly recommend it to punters in India.
Seriously, the flaws we have found are few and negligible considering everything Sportsbet.io is not just doing right but increasingly well. Plus, they are also a decent kabaddi betting site, and they are among the few online casinos in India that offer Mega Moolah with it massive progressive jackpot.
If you can go without a dedicated welcome offer and aren’t too worried about a lack of live streaming, we see no reason why you shouldn’t sign up at Sportsbet.io for all your cricket betting fun. With all the bet builder features, odds boosts, tournaments and free bets, we are sure you’ll be entertained here and can count yourself among the winners.
