FansBet is one of a kind betting site that recently launched into the UK market. They are an online sportsbook and casino that gives a share of their profits (they claim 50%) away to accredited supporter organisations.
In their “Fan Partner” scheme, you can register your local fan partner/club/organisation to receive funds on a quarterly basis. FansBet will track all of your bets to work out the correct funds for your group. Check out FansBet “About Us” page for more information.
Promotions and Rewards
FansBet is fairly new in the UK market, but they have a number of cool promotions that offer real value to all its customers.
Fan Boost – Here you will find select fan boosted odds with a £50 maximum stake. These cover a wide range of sports, with a focus on football but you can also see NFL, rugby, tennis, darts and more.
Fantasy Weekly Freeroll – Have you ever wanted to play fantasy football on a betting site for the chance to win money? FansBet gives you the opportunity to build your best Premier League team and put your skills to the test for a chance to win cash prizes!
Appearance and Navigation
FansBet has a fresh, user-friendly design for their sportsbook. The bold FansBet green is used to highlight their fans boosts quick links, scores, and promotions throughout their site. But, their banners can be slightly annoying, in particular, the £5 Million banners that pulse constantly as your scrolling through the site.
Navigation throughout the site is fast and easy, as FansBet utilises a smart layout while providing plenty of quick links. The A-Z sports list is down the left-hand side of the site while the centre is filled with live events from all sports.
The right side is reserved for promoting their annoying banners for the casino and £5m syndicate jackpots. It would be nice if they just removed them completely as there is no need for that kind of advertising on a sportsbook. At the very least, replace them will still advertising that doesn’t distract your peripheral constantly.
The site can sometimes take a while to load certain pages, but that is normal for most betting sites. My only real complaint is the moving advertising banners.
FansBet has a whopping 33 different sports for you to choose from and their market depth is decent. You will find 100+ markets in most of the top footballing league’s, with all the popular markets available. Also, they do have some cool and unique odds boost in their Fan Boosts section.
Football is a big part of FansBet which is fairly clear considering their unique partnership with football supporters. You will find an abundance of leagues and events to bet on but still not close to bet365’s crazy list of football events.
Live Betting and Streaming
Firstly, we are so happy the moving advertisement does not show on the in-play betting page. It would easily ruin the live betting experience! The live betting page is fresh and clean while displaying the information in a clear and easy to understand way.
Secondly, there is a filter along the top for all the different sports that are live. This is great for only focusing on the sports/events you want to, but it’s hard if you want to keep an eye on several sports/events at the same time. But, in the event view, you can see a number of live sports down the left-hand side.
Thirdly, if you enjoy betting on fast markets, you can filter them to see only events that have fast markets which is pretty cool. But, sadly there is not live streaming service available at FansBet. Then again, they are a fairly new bookmaker so it would be hard to provide such a service.
FansBet has a respectable customer service that is located in the top right of their page under “Help Center”. Here, you will find their FAQ page and access to their live chat support (available 24/7) and an email service.
If you just need the live chat, there is a green chat circle in the bottom right of the site that is always on show.
Overall, FansBet are a unique sportsbook which could change the relationship between punters and bookies. If 50% of their net profits are truly shared with fans, it could make all the difference to a great number of supporters.
The sportsbook itself is nothing remarkable, but it certainly provides enough for most punters out there, with 33 sports and a good range of betting markets. The welcome offer isn’t great, in fact, it is pretty average. But, they offer a solid new sportsbook if you are looking for something different.
FansBet could easily become the go-to bookie for you and your fellow supporters while raising funds in any bets you happen to lose.
