Promotions and Rewards
Asides from the welcome offer, there is only one other promotion at the time of reviewing. Well, not a promotion more of a feature that is present throughout your stay at Genting Bet. Simply, the best odds guaranteed for Horse Racing for every UK and Irish race.
It is shame there are not more promotions and as far as I can see no rewards scheme. If you want to find other great sites offering plenty of promotions, follow this link to the rest of our UK Bookie Reviews.
Appearance and Navigation
Genting Bet has a very much traditional layout for their site. With the sports and quick links listed down the left side and the live now games centred down the middle. Yet, the font is larger than most which essential for quick bet selection and easy navigation. Also, there isn’t much clutter, only a few adverts with the rest being information useful to you as a punter.
The colour scheme is okay with the majority of the content easy to read. It could enjoy using that famous red to highlight either the odds or games. As it can sometimes blur into each other.
Navigating the content is all on one page. Which can be seen as a lot of information but great for quick bet selection. Also, the quick and sports links stay present throughout the different sections. Making it that much easier to move between the sports/events.
Genting Bet has a pretty awesome blog. Featuring different events previews that update often. A nice addition to some research or information to aid your selection process.
Firstly, Genting Bet has only the basic betting markets available both pre-game and in-play. Also, their sports list is smaller than some other competitors. To compete with other sportsbooks. They need to improve the depth of markets allowing more choice when selecting a bet.
As an example, there are only 48 pre-game markets available in the Fulham Vs Aston Villa play-off final. Whereas Unibet has 143 different markets with the average having over 100.
The odd’s are at least competitive. But there is desperate need to increase the sports and markets available.
Live Betting and Streaming
The in-play page is logical and clear in its design, allowing or fast and easy bet selection. A crucial feature whilst live betting. The most notable absence is the pitch map with the live stats of the event. Instead, you can only see the names of the team/players with no kind of info-graphic present. It’s not a necessary tool, but the live in-game stats are, with Genting only offering the basics such as the scores.
Furthermore, there is no cash out option for both live and pre-game betting. A real shame, as its such a necessary feature for many punters.
At the time of reviewing there is also no live streaming option, which is more of a bonus anyway. All in all, the cash out option is a real miss that will hopefully come soon.
Things get a lot better for Genting Bet when we arrive at their world class customer service available 24/7. Help can be seen in the Customer Support tab. With its own dedicated page, using several different methods of contact in a list below.
- Live Chat- Live help is available on the website, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
- Email- firstname.lastname@example.org
- Phone Call- Request a phone call on their site for no charge
In conclusion, Genting Bet has the potential to be a solid sportsbook. It falls short with their promotions, small market depth and lack of cash out feature. It does have a sensational customer service and a very successful casino business. Also, their site itself is logical and easy to use but you can’t help notice the issues you would face.
