Smart Live Sports Review
Smart Live Gaming is an online betting operator which offers both sports, casino and live casino to punters. It was first established in 2007.
Smart Live Gaming was first and foremost a casino operator, it offers games courtesy of the following well regarded industry leading providers; Microgaming, NetEnt and Betsoft. It is both licensed and regulated by Malta and the UK Gambling Commission.
The Smart Live Gaming Twitter has over 1,500 followers but is used infrequently. The company also has a presence on Facebook and Youtube. Smart Live Gaming has not invested much in the way of ambassadors nor sponsorships of leagues, tournaments of sports clubs.
Smart Live Gaming may focus on casino but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t cater to sports betting fans too.
Here is the full list of sports it offers odds in: American Football, Aussie Rules, Alpine Skiing, Badminton, Baseball, Bandy, Basketball, Biathlon, Boxing, Chess, Cricket, Cross Country Skiing, Cycling, Darts, Esports, Football, Gaelic Football, Field Hockey, Golf, Handball, Horse Racing, Hurling, Ice Hockey, Motor Sports, Pesapallo, Pool, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Sailing, Snooker, Ski Jumping, Table Tennis, Tennis, Volleyball and Waterpolo.
As well as all these Smart Live Gaming offers Specials which vary but are Entertainment and Politics based. There are Smart Live Sports Virtual Sports as a further option too in case you’re still not satisifed.
The clue is in the name, Smart Live Betting offers live betting, all you need do is click the ‘Live In Play’ tab at the top of the homepage and you’ll be taken to the relevant section.
The graphics are excellent. The main draw is a live pitch which shows the minutes played, the key match action (such as ‘Dangerous Attack’) and detailed relevant stats to the right of this, such as yellow cards, goals etc. It’s a great example of how live betting should be displayed, and whilst there’s no live streaming facilities as yet this is a great inplay product.
Usability of the site
The Smart Live Sports site is reasonably modern, graphic heavy and runs a frankly unattractive luminous green, grey and black colour scheme. The site has two language options, English and Japanese and a wealth of banking options for your depositing and withdrawal needs.
These include numerous e-wallets including Skrill, Neteller, Ukash and more in addition to the likes of Visa and Mastercard. It does not however accept Moneybookers nor Paypal.
Customer support exists in the form of email, live chat (which helpfully is easy to find in the bottom right) and there’s a comprehensive FAQs section to boot.
The promotions tab is also handy and a good first pit stop when entering the site as either a current or new customer.
Smart Live Gaming is a modern site which does live betting very well. If it was to add live streaming then it would score top marks for its inplay product.
As it is it remains a great place to wager, with a wealth of sports to bet on, and a great casino product too if that’s your cup of tea.
