Which bookmaker details are compared?
This will tell you which countries the bookmaker is licensed to operate in. If the country you reside in is accepted, you will see “Accept users”. If the country you reside in is not approved, our comparison tool will identify it and make you aware of this.
Most bookmakers entice new customers with welcome bonuses. This tool will show you which bonus is offered, how much the bonus is worth, what the minimum deposit requirement is, as well as general terms and conditions of the selected bonus.
Many bookmakers offer bonuses based on the amount you deposit into your betting account the first time. Our comparison table identifies the maximum percentage offered by the bookmaker and any applicable terms and conditions relating to this offer.
All operators have a predetermined minimum deposit amount. Bookmakers set this amount based on their costs for processing credit card and e-wallet transactions. These costs are covered exclusively by the bookmaker and are not deducted from your gaming account.
All bonuses have their own wagering requirements and terms and conditions. These requirements must be met before any withdrawal can be approved. For example, if the bookmaker offers a bonus that must be wagered 5 times and you have received a bonus totaling €/£/$50, you are required to wager at least €/£/$250 before you can request a withdrawal.
Often bookmakers have a minimum amount you must wager per bet/stake, and in some cases a maximum amount may also be set. Casino games may allow smaller bet amounts, but this may vary from game to game.
This is the maximum amount the bookmaker will allow you to win with the bonus money on a sports bet. You need to be aware of this when calculating your stake, but it is usually quite a large maximum limit.
Also known as in-play betting. This tells you whether the bookmaker allows betting after a sports event has started.
Many bookmakers offer mobile apps (*mainly for iOS and Android) as well as mobile versions of their betting site. Bookmakers’ apps let you play via your phone or tablet.
Overall bookmaker rating
Our users often share their reviews of their bookmakers by sending them in to us. The number we show is the total number of ratings our users have submitted.
Our readers can also rate their satisfaction with the bookmakers’ promotions on the respective websites. A low rating indicates that the bonus conditions are difficult to achieve or also limits the type of bets allowed.
While all bookmakers offer sports betting, it is the extra features on their websites that are incredibly important factors for many users when choosing a bookmaker. For sports betting, features such as cash out, live games and live streaming can be very important. Casino games are also hugely popular, as are poker and live casino games.
This section tells you what sports the bookmaker offers. While almost all bookmakers cover betting on football, not all also include sports such as horse racing, rugby or cricket.
Bookmakers determine which deposit methods should be available to you when you choose to fund your betting account. For example, they do not always accept deposits with Paypal, Neteller or other E-wallets.
It will often be the case that bookmakers require you to request withdrawal via the same method you deposited with. This is mainly to comply with money laundering regulations, while others will also include multiple methods to ensure you have access to your funds.
This section lists the accepted currencies. While a bookmaker may allow deposits in multiple currencies, it will probably only be possible to place bets in euros or dollars. In this case, your deposited currency will be converted into the bookmaker’s chosen currency. A new trend seen on most, leading bookmaker sites is the implementation of crypto payments of BTC, DOGE and other fiat currencies.
