Betsat Sports has an eclectic mix of sports, as a result of trying to please both Turkish players and European customers, especially those who reside in the United Kingdom. The silver lining is that football and basketball are equally popular in Turkey and on the rest of the continent, therefore European domestic championships and international tournaments enjoy ample coverage. These are by far the leagues that benefits from an impressive selection of markets with an average of 50 for each game, similar to what happens to other Turkish bookmakers like BetAdonis or Betin.
Betting in real-time is something that punters take for granted these days, yet Betsat Sports doesn’t go the whole 9 yards when it comes to live betting. It is possible to wager on tennis, football, basketball and a few hockey leagues after the games have started, yet the selection of games shrinks. The odds are largely unaffected, but sometimes it takes a bit too long for the bookmaker to refresh them and this has the side effect of delayed bets.
Horse racing at Betsat Sports is hit or miss because only the flagship tournaments are available for wagering, and the daily races seem to be added on the list just to be there. There are dozens of special bets that horse racing enthusiasts are familiar with, but with this bookmaker they are restricted to picking the winner and the runner-up. It is still better than nothing but definitely not enough to attract UK punters, which to some extent defeats the purpose of introducing this sport.
The same insufficient offer is plaguing the least popular sports and players will have a hard time finding events worth wagering if fascinated by boxing, mixed martial arts, cricket, golf and even motor racing. Betsat Sports is not the best partner for those who want to bet for a long time and are particularly concerned about the average return on investment. Average odds of 1.90 are offered on coin flip events and even less when you bet on games that are about to start, as the limits go down to as little as 1.83.
Inexperienced punters are very likely to be deceived by these odds and settle for lower values, but there are ways of getting around this shortcoming. Punters are advised to either wait until the game starts if the match is available for live betting or place the bets minutes before kickoff, as the odds seem to be adjusted to fairer values. Betsat Sports also has a propensity for football games which have the lowest bookmaker margin of 4.9%, the only one that is below the industry standards of 5.1%.
