PlanetWin365 Sportsbook Review
PlanetWin365 has been online since 2009 and was initially created in Austria. It has since become an increasingly popular site for Italian and Austrian players.
The bookmaker is subsidiary to SKS365 Group GmbH (formerly Skysport365), and has over 1300 betting shops across Europe. PlanetWin365 is licensed and regulated by administrators in the Austrian Province of Tyrol.
Although the main language is English, the bookmaker also operates in Italian, German, French, Spanish, Polish, Turkish, Romanian, Croatian, Serbian, Albanian, Bulgarian and even Mandarin.
The bookmaker is very active in fighting corruption in sport, and is a member of FIFA’s Early Warning System as well as regularly attending conferences across Europe on how to identify and prevent issues.
The focus of the site is on their sportsbook with Football undoubtedly being the most popular market with PlanetWin365, but they also offer players the opportunity to play on their casino and in their live poker rooms.
In April of 2016, Brazilian football legend Roberto Carlos joined PlanetWin365 as an ambassador on a three year contract, following on from the likes of Tennis star Thomas Muster, former champions league winner Angelo Di Livio and current water polo World Champion Andrija Prlainovic. PlanetWin365 was also a sponsor of Italian football team ASD Matera Calcio and Parma FC in 2013, while at the same time sponsoring the LCR Honda team.
PlanetWin365 is commercially active in Austria, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Serbia and Montenegro, with thousands of followers across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
PlanetWin365 have a maximum of 700 different types of bets offered per day on any given sport, and with 4% margin the bookmaker offer great betting odds compared to other sites.
You can place bets on over 30 different markets including Football, Basketball, American Football, Tennis, Baseball, Ice Hockey, Handball, Rugby, Golf, Snooker / Pool, Motor Racing, Darts, Cycling, Volleyball, Cricket, Futsal, Table tennis, Winter Sports, hurling, Water polo, Badminton, Rugby Union, including a set of special offers.
There are also some more uncommon markets such as speedway, swimming and Nascar. There is also no facility for the lucrative E-Sports market, which feels like a lost opportunity for PlanetWin365.
Although the facility is available, there is a great focus on football, and other sports feel somewhat ignored. Although improving, there is still not enough in terms of statistics and visuals, especially given there is no live-streaming facility on offer.
Usability of the site
PlanetWin365 is a well-designed, sleek site that offers players an enjoyable gaming experience. However, at times the webpage may feel over crowded and the layout it could be made more simply. The mobile support is much better designed in that regards and is easy and fun to use.
For beginners the site is not difficult to use, and there is a great range of customer service on offer including a live-chat facility, e-mail, Skype and phone support.
The payment options have been growing and PlanetWin365 now offer a good range of methods including Skrill, Visa, Electron, MasterCard, ClickandBuy, Ukash, Diners, Delta, CartaSi, Postepay, Bank Wire, Neteller and EcoCard. Payouts are relatively fast and will be processed within 24 hours if using an e-wallet.
PlanetWin365 offers a standard €500 welcome bonus to all those who sign up for real money account. They also have a VIP programme in which you work your way up from Soldier to General in order to be eligible for their 25% reload bonus, with a soldier starting at 8.5%
PlanetWin365 is a great bookmaker offering extensive markets, highly competitive odds and a good interface making players feel welcome and at ease. Although more work could be given to their Live Betting facility as well as considering the addition of more lucrative markets like E-Sports.
