SLbet Sportsbook Review
SLBet takes a slightly different approach to most operators in that it offers sports betting, casino and TV games.
SLbet is operates under the licence issued to Curacao eGaming, a company via which numerous betting sites, including Bet555, 10StarBet, JoinBet and more are licensed by the Curacao authorities.
Based out of Malta and licensed by the LGA there, SLBet is a young bookmaker (it started in 2014) which has made little headway in terms of signing sponsorship deals or acquiring brand ambassadors to date.
The site isn’t the most inspiring but it’s functional and easy to get to grips with. SLBet is also offering a good signup offer for new customers in the form of a €100 welcome bonus.
To its credit SLBet offers a pretty great range of different markets to bet on, so you can whet your whistle on football for instance before wagering on politics and then virtuals.
Here is the full list of betting markets offered: Football, Basketball, Handball, Formula 1, Boxing, Tennis, Motor Racing, Olympics, Ice Hockey, Volleyball, American Football, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Baseball, Cricket, Futsal, Darts, Aussie Rules and Badminton.
In addition it offers politics, poker and virtual sports. One disappointment is that it doesn’t offer esports at this time, this is a fast growing market and SLBet would do well to include it in the sportsbook.
As is often the case with new bookmakers live betting isn’t SLBet’s strong suit, but it does at least try.
The layout is far too out-dated, to the extent that it looks close to untrustworthy. This is a shame as the rest of the site is usable enough if a little basic. SLBet doesn’t offer cash out or live streaming, and it needs some heavy investment in its inplay product.
Usability of the site
SLBet is functional more than fun to use, and the site maintains a basic theme with a mini day by day calendar in the top left to scroll through upcoming markets and events.
There is a wide choice of languages which is a positive, and shows that it caters to numerous clients. At this time the language options are English, German, Greek, Albanian Portuguese, Macedonian, Bulgarian, Czech, Danish, Estonian, Spanish, French, Croatian, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Romanian, Serbian, Russian, Swedish, Turkish and Ukrainian.
There is no mobile app and customer support is limited; there’s no live chat, phone or email support but just a response team, which the site states is 24/7, that are contactable via a form on site.
SLBet accepts the typical banking methods such as Visa, Mastercard, Skrill, Neteller and paysafecard but it doesn’t allow Paypal.
The virtuals tv section of SLBet is probably the most exciting and unique thing about it. This section is well laid out, and there are numerous virtuals options including football, horse racing, speedway and bike racing.
SLBet is a functional site with a good range of markets and outstanding range of languages in which to view the site.
It’s limited however in terms of customer support, general promotions and its live betting needs completely revamping.
Come for the 100% deposit bonus, but don’t hang around until it improves its live betting product.
