As the name suggests, Bet-at-home truly makes you feel at home. As soon as you visit its website, you get a fresh feeling. The website was founded in 1999 by Austro-German bookies Jochen Dickenger and Franz Omer in Austria.
After a decade, it has consolidated its position as a hidden gem in the bookmaking industry. Currently, they’re operating from Malta and it has continuously grown its online products portfolio.
The Mangas Gaming Group is the founding organisation behind Bet-at-Hone Holding limited. Since its inception, the website has involved over 2.5 million customers in Europe, Malta, Austria and Germany. In 2009, it became a part of the Betclic Everest group and Experkt. Since then, the website has consistently improved its brand image in order to provide excellent services in casino and sports betting.
The group is known for its sponsorship’s, mainly for its association with Hertha Berlin, SV Ried, FC Schalke and Austria Wien.
Free Bonus and Promotions
Currently, Bet-at-home runs some great bonus offers. It welcomes new sports bettors with a 50% match bonus on its first deposit (up to a maximum value of £10). You can redeem this bonus by entering promo code TOPUK. The requirements for using this bonus includes that members should use the promo code within 10 days of registration.
The turnover requirement for the bonus is 15 times the bonus amount (that is 5x the bonus and deposit). The catch is that you can’t bet on odds of less than 1.70 (7/10) else the bet won’t fulfil the turnover requirement.
The website also rolls out promotional offers from time to time. In the ‘Winner of the Day offer’, you can win up to £50 every day. Each day, a random customer is selected by the bookmaker for this offer.
Casino lovers will be thrilled to know that the website gives 50% to 1000% bonuses on initial deposits of up to 1000 euros. Other than these, the site launches several bonuses from time to time.
Sports Games on Offer
- Events covered
Bet-at-Home’s sportsbook carries a plethora of events and competitions in motorsports, tennis, football, basketball, handball, volleyball hockey, horse racing and greyhound. However, it is exclusively dedicated to football, especially European football leagues and Germany soccer margins. The bet margins run around 6.5% so a maximum amount of £100,000 is wagered every week.
You can participate in live betting on ice hockey, skiing, soccer and tennis. In case of football matches, you get the option to bet on double chance, first goal, under over and Asian handicaps.
The odds offered on the website are not that good. If you consider tennis and football, the website seems to lag behind in major matches. In case of bigger over-rounds, the larger profit margin goes to the bookmaker.
The good thing is you can filter out the type of bets you don’t want to look at. Design-wise, the website is easily navigable and in-play is good.
- Live Betting
The live betting option is limited to just a few games that are available on the calendar view. You can see the odds changing there. The good thing is that odds are good and the market generates positive outcomes. The site doesn’t offer plenty of coverage, but the live markets run pretty quickly.
Other than this, there are virtual sports (like greyhound racing) where users can switch between Today’s and Tomorrow’s best selection.
Customer Service, Security & Banking Options
Bet-at-home’s customer support service is accessible via mail (email@example.com), telephone(+356-21314833) and live chat support system. The website is available on mobile versions and secure for transactions. It also supports the Sports Maps app on phone, where you can get a glimpse of all sporting events happening across the country as well as the odds available there.
Like other bookies, even Bet-at-home approves all major credit/debit cards and e-wallets like Visa, Mastercard, Diners Club, Western Union, Skrill, Neteller etc. Even bank transfers are possible.
On the whole, Bet-at-Home is a recognised brand operating in Central Eastern Europe that runs a wide range of live beds and so-so odds. It has done a good job in terms of market coverage and operation. Even the welcome bonus is good and customer service is quick.
The downside however, is that the website lacks important features like faster cash-out and live streaming. In some events, the players can place bets in triples. Moreover, there are high margins on certain sports which mean lower odds for the players.
If you don’t mind these shortcomings, it’s a good place to start your trip in sports betting.
