GoalBet are a new bookmaker that look to offer a range of sports and markets for bettors that want a newer bookmaker to use. On first glance, the bookmaker looks quite simplistic in design, but does delving deeper show that GoalBet are actually a bookmaker you should sign up with?
Straight from the off it is evident that GoalBet’s site design is nothing overly special. This is not to say that it is not easy to use, quite the opposite in fact. The interface displays everything you could possibly want in a very clear way, making it perfect for newer bettors. However, where they do fall down is the fact they do not add anything new or exciting to the market. A pretty standard design with all of the events and sports on the left and popular games at the top does make it easy to find what you are looking for, but this style is almost identical to so many other bookies.
The black and white colour scheme of the site is not the most attractive as the colours are split up into rectangular blocks which makes for quite a boring look to the site. Alongside this is the rather unnecessary banners to advertise their daily offers, casino games, loyalty programme and other offerings. These banners display generic images that just feel like they make the page more cluttered than it needs to be.
As far as banking options go, GoalBet offer a pretty decent range to choose from. Alongside paysafecard, Skrill, Neteller and MoneySafe, the standard options in the form of MasterCard and Visa are both available. With a pretty decent range of options available, very few people will not have an available method to them.
Contact wise, GoalBet really do lag behind their competition. Clicking on the contact link will take you to a page saying GoalBet are available 24/7. The card holder correspondence email is available at the top of the page, but the most efficient way to get in contact with them seems to be the ‘chat with us’ link that appears at the bottom right of the page when you are in the contact area.

While GoalBet may lag behind when it comes to design and customer service, they have made a pretty decent effort of incorporating a lot of betting potential. There are over 21 available sports to bet on including the most popular ones like football and tennis. Clicking on a sport like football will reveal all of the available nations playing football to bet on and, at the time of writing, there were around 40 different ones to choose from. This impressive array of national betting works perfectly with their In-Play betting features, while this also works well alongside GoalBet’s cash out feature too.
Security and Fairness
GoalBet hold a license from Curacao, with this certificate covering a number of platforms from the company. While this is not quite the same as having a license from the UKGC or another top gambling commission, it is safe to assume that Curacao will keep GoalBet in line.
GoalBet offer a good amount of sports and markets along with some of the standard features bettors have come to expect from their bookmaker. However, a pretty average site design coupled with a poor attempt at customer service means they are very much lagging behind the pack, rather than leading it.
