The name Genting is primarily linked to land-based casinos and other entertainment facilities as Genting Group is one of the oldest and largest land-based operators in the UK. However, the company decided to expend its business and enter the online market, and as a result it launched both an online casino and a bookmaking website – Genting Bet.
GentingBet is a very user-friendly website, the design is rather minimalist and by opening the setting menu, which can be activated from the top left corner, you will find links to the most important pages and sections which aren’t displayed on the main page.
If you own an iPhone or an iPad you can download GentingBet’s app directly from the App Store and install it on your mobile device, and then you’ll be able to place wagers on the app, directly on your iPhone or iPad. If you own another mobile device, then you can bet from it via the website, all you need to do is open it in your mobile browser.
Every new punter who opens an account with GentingBet can claim an insurance on their first bet up to a maximum of £10. All that it takes is to place your first bet at evens or higher odds and if it doesn’t win, you will get your original stake back. If your bet is a multiple, than each included selection has to be at 2/5 odds or higher. If you qualify you will receive the bonus amount within a day after the original bet was settled and you will have 2 weeks to use your bonus. The bonus cannot be wagered at odds higher than 4/1 and the free bet amount isn’t including in the amount that you’ll receive, only the winnings.
If you are a punter who likes to place wagers on horse racing, then GentingBet can guarantee that you will get the best odds on every horse race that takes place between 12pm and 9.30 pm. The offer only extends to UK and Irish races. The concept is very simply, if, for example, you place a horse racing bet at odds 4/1 and in the meantime until the beginning of the race the odds grow to 5/1, you will be paid out at the higher odds, provided that your selection wins. The maximum increase that can be a result of the promotion is capped though, and the amount is £50,000. If you cash out the bet before it is settled, then it will not be eligible for the Best Odds Guaranteed offer.
If you place a wager worth at least £10 on an NFL market during any game week and the odds are at least 4/5, then you are eligible to receive a £5 bonus that can be used on live casino games at Genting Casino. The bonus has to be used within 3 days and the maximum winnings are limited to £100.
With the CashOut option you can secure a fraction of your returns every time when you feel that the final results might not go in your favour, or you simply don’t wish to wait any longer. CashOut is available on football, tennis and horseracing events and you will notice the Cashout icon in every case when your bet is eligible and can be cashed out.
GentingBet lists more than 20 different sports, including some of the most popular sports in the world like football, tennis and horseracing, but also many minor sports like cycling, Australian rules football and other. In the ‘Quick Links’ menu you will see the most popular sports and events in the current period and below is the list of football coupons.
Underneath you can find the full list of sports which also includes the ‘Specials’ category, where you will find several markets that are not linked to sports, and usually have to do with popular events like holidays, TV shows and popularity contests.
Football is, understandably the most popular sport both when it comes to numbers of viewers but also in terms of amounts of wagered bets and GentingBet offers more than 60 different leagues and competitions and the list is regularly updated.
In addition to match betting, outright betting is also available you may bet which team is going to win the Premier League or the FA Cup. When it comes to match betting, there are plenty of options especially if the match you wish to bet on is a Premier league match, or a match of another popular league/competition. Match betting and over/under markets are provided, but you may also bet whether a player is going to score a hat-trick, if one or both of the teams is going to keep a clean sheet. Handicap and Asian handicap betting is also offered.
You can fund your GentingBet account via your credit or debit card, via Skrill, but you can also make a deposit in any Genting land-based casino as long as you bring a photo ID with you and give your account username to the staff member. The minimum deposit amount is £10 if you deposit via card and £50 if you make a deposit at a land-based casino or via Skrill. All deposits are processed instantly, which means that you will be able to start placing wagers right away.
The same payment methods are available if you wish to withdraw your winnings and the minimum withdrawal limits are the same £10 if you withdraw to your credit/debit card and £50 for Skrill withdrawals and withdrawals through one of Genting’s casino branches. If you wish to withdraw from a casino branch, you will first need to request a withdrawal via the website and then bring photo ID to the cash desk at the casino of your choice. These withdrawals are processed instantly, Skrill withdrawals take one day, whereas withdrawals to a credit or debit card may take 3 or 4 working days.
GentingBet offers 24/7 customer support and the only day when their customer support team isn’t working is Christmas, which is pretty fair. You can request help via email, or through the live chat platform which is available on the website. Phone support is also available and you can just give them your phone number and wait for a member of staff to call you, so that you won’t have to pay for the call.
Genting is a company with an unmatched reputation in the UK, and even though there were already other active online bookmakers at the time when Genting decided to launch GentingBet, customers knew that this is an operator they could trust.
The company is licenced by the UK Gambling Commission and this licence enables the company to offer its online betting services to all UK punters.
