So many new bookmakers and so little time to properly cover them. In the case of Double Bet, we just couldn’t ignore the noise they’ve been making in the last year or so. We mostly see new sportsbooks take it slow and experiment, but it seems that DB Bet is willing to go for the jugular.
The brand was founded in 2018 and is based on software created by BetB2B, a renowned name in the industry. However, we believe that DB Bet did not make the most of the platform. Nevertheless, they are on the right track and we would recommend them to most bettors. It’s up to you to decide if the ‘hiccups’ are worth it.
Right off the bat, we didn’t like the design. We feel like a company as renowned as BetB2B is capable of much more than this mediocre UI. It seems like they were forced to cram as much content as possible onto the homepage. If you’re browsing the site on your PC, you might see some things clearly.
The Android app is so-so and there is no version for iOS users, while the mobile browser version of the site is a disaster, to put it lightly. It’s not completely terrible, but come on, this is the year 2020. If other sites are able to come up with clean, tidy interfaces, there is no reason why DB Bet shouldn’t be able to follow suit.
Let’s cool it a bit with all the negativity, shall we? One thing we loved about Double Bet is that they’re available in a lot of countries. They’re also investing funds and efforts into expanding onto markets such as Kenia and Nigeria. We commend them for trying to bring their services to less-coveted regions.
Customer support is also great, with live chat correspondence being a really pleasant experience. DB Bet’s agents are all trained properly, while some are bilingual, too. It’s what you want from an internationally-oriented bookie, right?
What completely blew us away was the payments section. In total, there are 62 (yes, you read that right) deposit methods, with withdrawals being available with 47 of them. It’s very possible that this is the highest number we’ve ever seen in a bookie. Both mainstream and niche options are available.
Minimum withdrawals were also a surprise, as $1.50 is the smallest amount of money you can withdraw. Compared to other bookies and their $10 thresholds, this is what we call a casual bettor’s paradise. Amazing.

Do you want to know why we dragged this bookie’s design through the mud so much? It’s because their actual sports betting portfolio is STELLAR. No, really. You can bet on 50+ sports, with some football fixtures having over 400+ bets to choose from. eSports bets are also available. It’s a shame that you don’t get the visual part of the experience, too.
Security and Fairness
Surprisingly, Double Bet is solid in this category, as well. They started off with a license from the Government of Curacao, with several other regional approvals following suit. In fact, they have a license in almost every country they operate in. The site also undergoes regular audits from third party regulators, so we can safely conclude that this site is 100% safe and secure.
