Bet3000 is a true jewel in today’s competitive European sports betting market. Time and time again, they’ve proven that they’re up to the task of stealing customers from the industry’s giants. Active since 2007, they’ve arrived at just the right time to make a mark. Throughout the years, they’ve revamped their website countless times, which is a perfect testament to their devotion to providing quality services to their customers. In this review, we’ll point out the key factors to their success, while also covering several glaring flaws.
While we don’t usually start off with covering apps, in Bet3000’s case we just felt the need to do so. Both their iOS and Android apps are some of the best we’ve ever tested, with new features and changes constantly being implemented. The sliders are splendid and all the available filters let you find events that interest you even faster than on the desktop version. It’s evident that they didn’t just scale down existing elements - the whole thing has been built from the ground up and works perfectly.
The PC browser version is also very functional and responsive, with no bugs and loading times being borderline incredible. Nevertheless, we noticed the same problem many bookies struggle with - the white background. Why is it so hard to keep the same color scheme and replace the white layout with a black one? Not only is this relatively easy for web designers to do, but it also greatly reduces eye strain when staring at the screen for hours.
We’re going to have to deduct some points for their lackluster customer service. Don’t get us wrong - the agents themselves deserve every praise for their fast and insightful responses. However, it’s preposterous to see a bookmaker offer only email support in 2019. This would be weird even 10 years ago when lots of sites offered phone support too. If they intend to grow, they need to fix this ASAP.
Payment options are the exact opposite. PayPal, Paysafecard, VISA, MasterCard, Maestro and more make up a formidable banking section. As we all know, PayPal rarely collaborates with bookmakers so it’s always a pleasant surprise that the most popular payment processing platform is available.
Sports and Betting Odds
Bet3000 offers many sporting events for users to place bets on. Among the covered sports are: soccer, tennis, basketball, volleyball, American football, ice hockey, handball, darts, snooker, water polo, table tennis, rugby, golf, badminton, floorball, motor sport, winter sport, bowls, horse racing, entertainment. Betting odds at Bet3000 are competitive overall. Soccer betting margin is 1.9%, tennis betting margin is 6.9%, ice hockey betting margin is 5.2%, basketball with 5.2% and so on. The overall betting margin is 4.9%. These betting margins have been calculated using odds from different events in each sport. Please note that margins may be different from a sport to another, and even from a league to other.
If problems with customer support are considered a slight hiccup by Bet3000, then this is them falling off a cliff. While you can find special bets in copious amounts, sports coverage is mediocre at best. You can find the most popular events and some less-covered ones, but the variety is putrid. Only a few leagues are available per sport. Ironically, their in-play betting section is really extensive.
Security and Fairness
A license from the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) allows them to operate across Europe. It’s also worth mentioning that they’re also the owners of a prestigious Schleswig-Holstein license, allowing them to serve players in several heavily-regulated regions of Germany. Using EV SSL encryption, Bet3000 ensures that your information is safe and sound. To further boost its credibility, this bookmaker recently earned a certificate from TÜV SÜD, an internationally renowned data protection testing firm.
