Online since 1999, Expekt is a brand with tradition in Europe, mainly focused on Nordic markets. Acquired by Betclic Everest Group, Expekt has seen in recent years a rather fall in bettor trends due to a lack in proper marketing and promotions, as well as not applying for the licensing deals in various European countries. As a sportsbook, Expekt offers a decent number of sports and games to bet on. The betting account can be used to access any of the other verticals as well such as casino with live games or poker. Expekt is one of the many brands operated by Betclic Everest Group, which also includes Betclic, Everest or Bet-at-home.
Expekt is licensed by MGA in Malta, allowing to accept players from multiple countries from both Europen and world wide. As with local EU regulations, the Expekt market has been shrinking as it did pursue individual licensing deals. Nevertheless, Expekt still operates in English, German and few other languages, offering support via email and online chat. With a sportsbook product that still lists over 30,000 events per month and a built-in live streaming service, Expekt is still one option to consider.
