In early 2020, Wanabet announced a makeover, as they officially confirmed that SBTech will be their software supplier for the foreseeable future. With such a highly respected company taking over their digital products, we felt like we needed to review the site once again.
Despite being one of Spain’s top sportsbooks, we noticed several flaws in the past. Thankfully, it’s evident that Wanabet invested the right amount of effort into improvement, resulting in our verdict being a predominantly positive one. Some issues are still there, but we believe Wanabet will be here for years to come.
SBTech is one of the best choices a bookmaker can make, at least when it comes to software solutions. Veikkaus, the Finnish state-owned betting company, also uses SBTech’s services to power their online offering. The mark of this legendary brand is felt all over the website, but mostly in the modern, cutting-edge UI.
Something SBTech is best-known for are crazy color decisions. Who in 2005 would have believed you if you said that purple would be an acceptable design choice 15 years in the future? Most likely nobody. That’s what SBTech is all about, breaking barriers and providing a significant amount of pizzaz to the sports betting industry.
Overall, the site is very clean. Even though we don’t like white backgrounds, Wanabet went with a comfortable layout, which allows the content to be readable and block the whiteness from interfering with the experience.
You can learn how to navigate the site with relative ease, as every single visual detail is taken care of. In-site adds and other promotional content is very restricted, at least compared to other Spanish betting sites.
Some users might find the list of payment options a bit short, but we wouldn’t agree. TeleIngreso, VISA, MasterCard, and PayPal are the essentials that almost every Spanish punter uses. Waiting times are more than decent, with fees being nonexistent. Even if you prefer a niche platform, give Wanabet’s banking section a chance. It won’t disappoint you.
When it comes to customer support, we love the introduction of live chat correspondence. All the agents that we had the pleasure to talk to are polite and knowledgeable about every detail pertaining to Wanabet. The FAQ section could use some work, as they could easily provide some of the answers that we were forced to get from the customer support team. All in all, Wanabet takes good care of its players.

Their offer has also seen improvements, with many less-coveted leagues being added to the mix. However, they still need to add some more market depth if they are to compete with big international brands. Live streaming is available for select matches, which aren’t that infrequent, honestly. A step in the right direction, if you will.
Security and Fairness
Wanabet claims to have seven different licenses, but there isn’t any information of any of those. Other than the publicly known seal of approval from Spain’s General Directorate for the Regulation of Gambling, these licenses are unconfirmed. There is also nothing available on the security measures used by Wanabet, which is a bit worrying. They’re members of Juego Securo, AutoExclusion, and JuegaBien.
