An introduction to Netbet co uk

To fully appreciate what a decent bookie Netbet co uk is, we will need to go back a few years to a time when many UK punters were getting a little bit apprehensive as to the manner in which Netbet were conducting themselves.

Netbet was set up back in 2001 but during those first few years they were renowned for all of a sudden offering massive bonuses on an almost weekly basis.

Just in case you are not aware, this is a sign that a bookie has cash flow problems and acting in this manner usually ends in tears.

To everyone's surprise, even though bonuses like this are not offered any more, Netbet co uk has actually put all of that behind them and have gone from strength to strength to such an extent that they are now commonly regarded as a bookie which you should most definitely have an account with.

Is Netbet UK properly regulated?

You will be pleased to know that Netbet is properly regulated and licenced by the UK Gambling Commission which basically means that they meet all of the necessary requirements when it comes to the safety and security of the personal information and deposited funds of their players.

Netbet also has an association with responsible gambling groups such as Gamcare but what particularly stands out about Netbet UK is their own stance on responsible gambling which is actually very impressive.

If you scroll down to the bottom of their website you will see a link entitled ‘Responsible Gaming’ and if you click on this link you will be taken to a page which lists the help available should any of Netbet’s customers be experiencing any problems with their online gambling.

Lots of help and advice is available such as questionnaires to determine if you have a problem along the steps which are available to help.

The vast majority of punters will not experience any problems whatsoever but it is reassuring to know that those that do are well looked after.

The Netbet welcome offer

The Netbet welcome offer is pretty straightforward even though it may be a little different to the welcome bonuses that you are used to.

In order to take advantage of the Netbet welcome bonus sign up offer you will need to deposit and place a wager of £30 (there is no mention of any minimum odds)

When this bet has been settled, you will receive £15 in free bets and £15 in free spins to play at the Netbet casino and the Vegas section of the website

The Netbet sign up offer comes in the form of 3 x £5 bets and the free spins consist of 50x 20p free spins on the casino and 25x 20p free spins on Vegas.

The wagering requirements for this Netbet welcome bonus are 40x any winnings from the free spins but there are no wagering requirements as such on the free bets as they are in the form of stake not returned bonuses (SNR).

So, for example, if you placed one of the £5 free bets on a selection with odds of 2/1 and the selection went on to win, you would receive a return of £10 as opposed to the £15 which you would receive if the stake was included.

There is not a Netbet bonus code to speak of as Netbet bonuses get added automatically.

The markets and bets at Netbet UK

The range of markets and bets which are available at Netbet UK compare favourably with the top bookies within the industry.

Football betting markets in particular are especially extensive with over one and fifty different bets available for football matches which are taking place in the top leagues.

The most popular betting markets at Netbet are football, horse racing and tennis but that is not to say that some of the less popular sports aren’t catered for because betting on sports such as surfing and MMA is also available.

Placing a bet on Netbet is extremely straightforward and just involves clicking on a selection which automatically bets placed in the bet slip which can be found towards the top right hand corner of the website.

As you add more selections, the bet slip gives the option of placing single bets as well as automatically calculating what kind of multiple bets can also be used.

The Netbet odds

Let’s put it this way, even though the Netbet odds are not exactly the best in the industry, they are usually fair and you don’t feel like you are being ripped off in any way.

They are sometimes slow to move the odds when a very quick market move is taking place so this leaves obvious opportunities available for the astute punter but don’t get too greedy as taking advantage of opportunities such as this with large stakes is a sure-fire way to get your account restricted.

The live play betting opportunities at Netbet UK

Live play betting at Netbet UK is most satisfactory and can be accessed by clicking on the ‘In Play’ button which can be found towards the right-hand side at the top of the website.

The in-play events which are already taking place when you log into your account are clearly displayed on this section of the website and there are links at the top of the page which direct to the different categories of live betting events which are coming up.

These include football, tennis, basketball, cricket, handball, beach volleyball and volleyball so as you can see, the selection of live betting events is wide and varied.

The odds in the live betting events are very much the industry average and you can see from the website which markets within the live play sports are available.
