BetBull

Review Summary:

BetBull is new, modern - and an app! We absolutely love the idea. It’s new and innovative and sets it apart from all of its competition. This is the perfect app for punters who like to bet on the go – quick and easy. The idea we love is the leaderboard function – allowing you to copy the very best bettors around – and rewarding you for sharing your accumulators with others – making it feel like a real community.

BetBull Sports Review

About BetBull

BetBull bulldozed its way onto the online betting scene in 2015 – so is pretty new to the scene. It is one of the very first bookmakers that runs its whole business operation through a web based app – definitely an innovative and exciting step in the world of online sports betting. It is the only bookmaker that can only be accessed by app – so if you want to try it out – you have to download it.

Since it first hit the market, it has focused very much on ensuring it has all the necessary licenses and regulations – and despite its young age, it has already received high praise for its originality. Although at first the idea of having an app only betting site may not seem too appealing, it very much sells itself on being not just a betting app, but also a betting community. It is aiming to ensure that players feel like they are part of something bigger and creating a more social experience. The site’s USP is that customers are joining a communal experience. Punters who use BetBull, post betting recommendations on the site every day and other users can follow the punters progress by using tipster tables – letting them see who puts up the strongest and best bets. This is definitely a site like none other on the market…

Market Offering

As an app, BetBull have managed to cover all the major sports, with over 15 top sports to choose from. The list on BetBull may not be as extensive as on many others, but they do have the main sports in Europe that you might wish to bet on such as:

 

However, despite the amount of sports being a little underwhelming, the markets covered in the main sports is very impressive and comprehensive – particularly if you are a football bettor. The Premier League has a big offering on this app, with the matches having around 120+ markets… so you can find everything you could possibly ever want to bet on. SO, if you’re a punter that likes to place bets on Asian Handicaps or the corners and cards markets, then this will have you covered.

Football Horse Racing Tennis Rugby Union Cricket
Premier League Grand National Wimbledon Six Nations The Ashes
Championship Royal Ascot US Open World Cup Twenty20
Serie A Cheltenham Festival French Open International Friendlies World Cup
La Liga Newmarket Australia Open Women’s Rugby County Championships
Bundesliga Kentucky Derby ATP Masters Premier League IPL
France Ligue 1 Cheltenham WTA European Cup International One Day

As you can see, it’s not just football that has lots of markets available – horse racing is also very well represented – as is tennis. You can also bet on eSports as well – including games such as Dota 2. All in all, this is new and it’s an app, so it has limitations – but it picks its main areas and focuses well on those.

In-Play Betting

It’s difficult to quite understand how good live betting can be on an app as opposed to a betting website. However, because it is an app, it makes it perfect for live betting on the go as it is practically seamless on your mobile phone. Because it’s on mobile, you don’t have the hassle of logging onto your desktop to make your live bets – BetBull users can simply open the app and bet any amount of money they like on many live sporting events across a wide variety of markets. At this time, live streaming isn’t accessible, but maybe in the future.

Odds

One of the biggest draws of BetBull is the value of the odds. There have been some insanely high odds on offer at some of the top sporting events. This, in our opinion, is more important than offering hundreds of obscure sports that you’ll never bet on anyway. This is a sportsbook that is capable of offering some incredible value on your bets.

The highest percentage odds level on this site tend to be for basketball, which offers a staggeringly high value of between 96.27% – 97.59%. This is followed by football – with impressive odds values of between 94.14% and 95.90%. These two markets see them regularly pay out of 95%, which is practically unheard of in bigger sportsbooks. Horse Racing has a pretty wide spread – between 91.62% and 94.71%, which is also pretty impressive. On the lower end there is baseball, which offers levels between 90.16% and 91.79. However, in the field it aims to compete most – football – they are some of the best in the industry.

Bonuses

T&Cs Apply

Welcome Bonus

The BetBull welcome bonus gives you a £20 free bet when you register with BetBull on your mobile device. When it comes to welcome bonuses, this is pretty standard to many others out there. Simply register and make your qualifying bet. Once your qualifying bet is settled, you will be awarded with an equivalent matched bet, up to a maximum of £20.

To be able to claim the welcome bonus, it is important that the first bet you make matches all the criteria to be eligible. Firstly, you need to make sure that you make your initial bet with a debit or credit card, as any bets via eWallet or prepaid card will not be valid for the bonus. You must place the bet at minimum odds of 2.0 (evens). However, if your bet is voided or cashed out, then this will also not qualify. Once the valid bet is settled, you’ll get your free match bet.

There are also terms attached the free bet once you have received it. Firstly, the bet must be redeemed on a sports multiple and each leg of the multiple must have odds of ½ (1.5) or more. If your free bet wins, the you’ll be credited with your winnings from the bet but not the value of the actual bet stake. From the time your free bet is given, you will have ten days to claim and use your free bet.

Sharing Your Bet

One of the main lifetime bonuses on offer from BetBull is a sharing your bet bonus. The USP of the site is encouraging people to share and follow tips. For this reason, every time you put a bet on an accumulator bet and share the link with someone, if it comes off, both you and anyone who has followed your bet will be awarded a bonus. The more people that sign up and follow your bet, the higher your bonus will be.

The bonus for the ‘follower’ is only valid for new users. However, once they have signed up, they can benefit from being the bettor who shares their own bets. The best accumulators are often posted by elite members – and you can find these on the leaderboard… which means no matter how new you are; you can benefit from the knowledge of the more experienced.

Security and Regulations

This is a sports betting app that is completely and fully regulated, operating with the utmost integrity. There has so far been no controversy associated, which, in itself, is rare in this industry. Importantly, it is regulated by the UK Gambling Committee, one of the strictest in the industry. This means that not only is it fully compliant and legal to use within the UK, but also third parties will be looking after your interests. Should you have any issues with the site, you are fully protected within the law.

As well as this, it is associated with IBAS – the Independent Betting Adjudication Service. This is another independent third party which helps to deal with betting disputes. This is generally for last resorts, where every effort has been made to settle. This just gives added protection on top of the UKGC.

Furthermore, there is a very strict KYC process is strictly adhered to and they are linked with several responsible gaming companies, such as Gamble Aware and GamStop. They also enforce encryption protocols across its gambling platform to ensure that your data is fully protected.

Banking Options

There aren’t a huge number of depositing and withdrawal options. However, you’ll find that the most popular ones are – including most major debit and credit cards as well certain eWallets. Your options are:

 

Method:
:
Withdraw:

Obviously it is missing some popular ways of payment such as PayPal, which would be a good addition. However, all of the options available are very easy to use and instant. Just remember you cannot use the eWallets or Paysafecard to claim your welcome bonus.

All of these methods have no fees attached and allow you to pay in GBP, EUR,

The withdrawal times they quote are standard for all methods of payments – as they state that they will need to make checks before the withdrawals are processed. In general, the site states that you should receive all withdrawals within between 1-7 working days. However, normally eWallet withdrawals tend to come through quicker than debit or credit card withdrawals. Also, they earn another bonus point as there are no specified withdrawal or deposit limits – which gives you a lot of freedom.

Customer Service

The Customer Support at BetBull is good as there are several ways in which you can contact one of their agents. Firstly, the most popular one is the live chat portal, which allows you to get direct contact with them whilst still on the site. This service isn’t as immediate as certain other live chat services though, and you may write a message and not receive an answer for almost an hour, depending on how busy they are. Obviously, this isn’t great if you have an urgent query. They do not offer a phone number, so there is no way you can get an answer straight away.

There is also the option of sending an email to [email protected]. This is ideal if you have a more complex or serious issue. The customer support agents are very knowledgeable and deal with queries professionally and courteously. It’s also a 24-hour service, which is great. The addition of a more immediate way to contact would be ideal, but on the whole it’s very good.

Mobile Experience

This is a more interesting one than many others, as the BetBull sportsbook is purely a mobile experience, so there is no desktop experience to evaluate. You could not fail to be impressed with the structure of the mobile app, as the features are brilliant, especially as you can follow and replicate successful bettors. If you want to download it, then got to the website, where they will direct you to download the app on either android or iOS.

Once you open the app, you’ll get to see the top features, such as the leaderboard tab – which points you in the direction of the top bettors; the reward scheme – where you can earn top bonuses. Placing a bet is also very easy –as the whole app is very easy to use. You can make a bet in less than 4 clicks.

Everything on the sight is clear, clerical and nicely presented. The mobile app will highlight all your selections in blue and display accumulator amounts at the bottom. The whole process is idiot proof. The app is smooth and functional and makes betting easy and quick. Currently the phone requirements are: iOS 8 and/or Android Version7.

Conclusion:
We absolutely love the idea of this app. It’s new and innovative and sets it apart from all of its competition. This is the perfect app for punters who like to bet on the go – quick and easy. The idea we love is the leaderboard function – allowing you to copy the very best bettors around – and rewarding you for sharing your accumulators with others – making it feel like a real community. The bigger your community, the bigger your bonus. This really helps newbies start out with a bit of help. There are one or two improvements to be made… more banking options and quicker customer service, but all in all, it is a great site.
