Whitebet Sportsbook Review
Whitebet operates under the Evoke Gaming Group umbrella and is both licensed, regulated and based in Malta. It also has a licence from the UK Gambling Commission.
Other brands that operate under Evoke include Redbet.com, Heypoker.com, Bertil.com, Vinnarum.com and Mamamiabingo.com. The Whitebet poker software meanwhile is powered by the popular poker network Ongame, and the site includes games from the likes of NetEnt, Microgaming and Quickspin.
Whitebet has very little in the way of social media coverage, no discernible ambassadors or promotions and whilst there’s a tab for a blog on the site there are no news stories whatsoever on it.
The Whitebet sportsbook offers a reasonable amount of sports, with football by far and away the largest market though it offers a decent depth of markets in ice hockey and basketball too. This is clearly due to the European markets it’s focused on.
The full list of Whitebet sports betting markets can be seen here: Football, American Football, Aussie Rules, Baseball, Basketball, Boxing, Cricket, Curling, Esports, Floorball, Gaelic Football, Golf, Handball, Ice Hockey, MMA, Pesapallo, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker, Table Tennis, Tennis and Volleyball.
This is in addition to some politics markets and occasional specials too.
Live betting is available on Whitebet though it offers no live stream nor graphics, and this limits the experience somewhat. It is however easy to get to grips with and a huge number of events can be viewed easily all at once.
Whitebet live betting is available across sports though as with its pre-game markets the vast majority are in football. Live statistics are courtesy of score24.com
Usability of the site
The Whitebet site is both clean cut and easy to navigate. Far from being overwhelmed with promotional offers users are able to focus on finding the events and markets they wish to bet on. This is made easier still by the search bar on the left hand side, whilst just below this is a ‘Hot Links’ tab which shows popular markets. At the time of writing these were the Swedish ice hockey league (SHL), the English Premier League and the NHL.
Customer support at Whitebet is pretty strong and is available via live chat, email ([email protected]) or by phone. Whitebet live chat is available at various times in different languages and it’s best to check which is for you by accessing the site here. It responded well to our test in terms of response time and answers, and moreover merely offering live chat across languages is certainly a plus point for Whitebet. Remember to check the comprehensive FAQs as this may answer your query without the need to chat.
The Whitebet site is available in English, Swedish, German, Polish, Finnish and Norwegian.
As one of a number of sites under the Evoke label, Whitebet is a highly simplified option which is great for casual and new punters.
It’s aimed at European customers with a focus on football, basketball and ice hockey and its live betting product is basic but easy to understand. There is no Whitebet mobile app nor any focused mobile web option which doesn’t make it at all advisable for betting on the go.
The Whitebet customer support is good but some investment in mobile options, and more work to attract customers such as blog content and updated offers and promotions are much needed.
