Betsafe Sports had its fair share of critics in the initial stages, mostly due to the fact that the sports coverage was not impressive. Since the official release, the Scandinavian bookmaker greatly improved its offer and no longer focuses almost exclusively on Swedish, Finnish and Norwegian leagues. Now soccer represents only the tip of the iceberg, with basketball, ice hockey, baseball and tennis enjoyed ample coverage.
In terms of odds offered, Betsafe Sports leaves something to be desired, because the odds for an even match rarely surpass 1.87. Compared to the industry standard, this is nothing to shout for and in the long run punters are in danger of bleeding cash. On the bright side, the odds are significantly better for those who bet on Asian handicaps, although these markets are limited to a handful of sports.
The user interface of Betsafe Sports changed radically in 2006, but since that only minor modifications were made and all of them for the better. The live betting section is beaming with energy and with dozens of games being scheduled every day, action never ends. Players can wager in their own currency and bet in real-time on lower divisions as well as continental championships, but there is no live streaming service. There is no option for cashing out wagers prior to the conclusion of the game either.
The user-friendly interface allows customers to bet on sports in browser or use mobile devices, while casino games can be played in flash format or downloaded. Most of the games in the casino section have been tweaked to be compatible with smartphones or tablets and there are no trade-offs to be made in terms of visuals either. Betsafe doesn’t have a dedicated application for its casino games, yet the standard play is seamless and players can use mobile devices to meet the wagering requirements of any bonus.
