BetEast Review

The sports betting industry has been growing fast and steadily for 15+ years, and together with it Asian-type betting sites like BetEast. This is one of the more popular bookmakers internationally, with plans to become the best for UK-based customers and Europe in general. BetEast has resources enough to deliver world-class sports betting experience, which it already does and estimates say that at the moment it serves nearly 1 million customers on a global level.

BetEast is a truly international brand shown by the fact that it holds offices in 6 different countries. The brand is still expanding and currently over 500 people are employed in a culturally diverse working environment with people from 12 different nationalities mainly from Asia and Europe. The company is licensed to deliver odds in 50 jurisdictions, which generates lots of other responsibilities and needs for corporate awareness such as implementing responsible gambling frameworks, quality of service and high-end protection from cyber-attacks.

Offers

If you visit the Promotions page at BetEast’s website, you will notice that there is a strong focus on horse racing at least in terms of promotions. Two such currently active horse racing promotions are the Monday Racing Fever and Best Odds Guaranteed.

With the Monday Racing Fever you can get your money back on horse racing bets if your selection loses by a head. This means that if you’ve placed a single bet of at least £5 on any UK or Irish races taking place on Monday, and you’ve lost it by a head, you will get your money back as a free bet up to £25. If you have qualified for this free bet, you have to contact customer support to inform them. Keep in mind that there are further rules on how to use the bet.

The Best Odds Guaranteed promo on the other hand saves you lots of frustration. How many times have you placed a single horse bet only to find out that the odds improved short after you’ve placed the bet? In situations like that BetEast jumps into the occasion by helping you get paid at the bigger odds. However, this will only happen if you have taken an ‘Early’ or ‘Show’ price while making the bet.

Although there is no welcome offer for new customers, as a regular member of BetEast you won’t be deprived of bonuses and free bets. For example, with the Mega Acca bonus promo, you can double your pay-out for your 14-fold winning accumulator bets. This means that any amount you have won with your acca bet containing 14 selections will be doubled. The same bonus is valid for accas containing fewer selections (as low as 4-fold), but with different bonus percentages.

Markets

Although fast-growing, BetEast rarely appears on odds comparison lists, which means there is nothing extraordinary about their odds. You will find average or better than average odds for various sports markets ranging from team to individual sports, and from ball to non-ball sports. Hence you can bet on football, horse racing, golf, tennis, cricket, boxing, darts, rugby, winter sports, basketball, MMA, and anything in between. Even e-sports betting is available for those with a flair for video games.

BetEast has put out an extraordinary list of sports markets on which you can bet, and all of these are available for live betting too. The live betting section is not the most prominent one, but it does the trick. Currently the most watched and most popular markets for betting at BetEast are the WC 2018 qualifiers, along with competitions like the Champions League, Europa League, Premier League, and all the other major football events across Germany, Italy, Spain, France, the Netherlands etc.

No matter what you are betting on, you can always bail out of your bet with the early cash out feature. This was designed for those that have frequent change of heart about their bet or in case the game result doesn’t go your way. Instead, you can take out your bet fully or partially, and leave the rest if you have a glimmer of hope that you can win it. Anyway, it’s a nice way to save some money on failed bets.

Banking

There are four deposit and withdrawal options that you can use to fund your sports account at BetEast. They are few, but only the best like Neteller and Skrill. You can also use your Visa or MasterCard, as well as Maestro. These actually involve a lower deposit limit of just £5, while £20 is needed as a minimum for Neteller and Skrill deposits. However, the minimum withdrawal is much better. It’s only £5, and applies to all options.

In accordance with Anti-Money Laundering Regulations, BetEast may ask you to provide scanned documents that will help them verify your identity. These documents can be scanned IDs, passports, utility bills etc. Anything that has your name and address on them. All documents have to be sent at [email protected]

Support

Waiting for an email reply can be frustrating, which is why BetEast offers a live chat option that you can use to chat with any customer support representative in matter of moments. That way you can clear up any doubts personally in real-time instead of sending emails and waiting for replies. But, if you don’t have a pressing matter and don’t feel like chatting much, you can always send an email at [email protected] or use the contact form available at the website. Also, we recommend visiting the FAQ and Betting Rules sections.

Licence, Company

BetEast is actually a big player considering it was the main shirt sponsor of Swansea City in 2016, who is now partnered up with one of its sister-brands. The sponsorship was an incredibly exciting period for the company, as it helped establish the brand even more firmly in the UK. It was the brand’s first venture in British football, and will certainly not be its last.

The company that operates BetEast as well as several other fast-growing bookmakers on the internet is TGP Europe with offices in the Isle of Man. It operates BetEast with a licence issued there, as well as one issued by the Gambling Commission of the UK.
