Betmotion Sportsbook Review
Betmotion is a fully integrated online Sportsbook and Casino who aims to provide quality entertainment to gamblers around the world. Unfortunately, this does not include residents of the UK, who are currently banned from creating an account at the bookmaker. The bookmaker does not seem to be registered with any of the leading or well-known gambling authorities around the world how regulate and police online fair gaming practices, so if this is the case customers are advised to use the site with caution. The business is however registered in Malta, and so may well be on the way to gaining the right regulatory approvals.
A decent range of Sports and Betting Markets are available on the Betmotion website, providing depth and breadth to the online sports betting experience. Dive into a range of different sports, including the beautiful game, Football, many exciting American Sports, and even the much more niche Handball, Futsal and Field Hockey. There’s also a reasonable level of depth to each event and sport to satisfy your average gambler during online play. Currently no Horse Racing is available on the Betmotion website. You can place Singles, Systems and Accas of a 5, 6 even 8+ selections, so if you pick right, you have the opportunity to win big. There’s a range of promotions on offer to both new and existing customers, some of which offer great value. If depositing with Bitcoin, Betmotion offers a 10% boost on all deposits with the new cryptocurrency – free money for extra play as far as we’re concerned. The same applies for direct bank transfers and the use of the popular E Wallet Neteller for making deposits. As a new customer, you can also get a 150% bonus on all deposits, although it is currently unclear on the maximum amount you.
Live betting can also be found on the Betmotion. On the right hand toolbar, you can see all events that are currently available and inplay around the world. Use the overview to view top level bets on a range of different event, and see more detailed betting opportunities available by clicking on your event of choice. You can use the real-time statistics and visuals available to aid in making strategic bets on how events might play out, at the right time, and can also use the cash out feature if you so wish.
Betmotion has four main areas for its online casino – Slots, Bingo, Casino and Poker, with Live Casino found within the Casino section of the website. A range of slots are available to play with a mixture of new and old games from various providers. Many bingo rooms are generally open with different ticket buying prices to ensure all customers can enjoy the services, and hopefully take home a winning scorecard. A series of online casino focused can be found which are sure to entice players into these areas of the site.
Usability of the Site
Betmotion has worked hard to deliver a functional, logical and appealing website, and it does this to a reasonable degree. The site is well organised, albeit with a little too heavy emphasis on playing on casino based games, rather than the Sportsbook section of the website. The website is nearly seamless, although some of the drop down menus can sometimes be jittery to load and the graphics delayed when loading. A live chat and email support service is available for all customers to use, along with an online account system to track full betting history across all the areas of Betmotion.
In conclusion, Betmotion is a reasonable bookmaker with some enticing new customer offers available. There are question marks around the trustworthiness of the site, due to its seemingly current lack of regulatory approval, although this may just not be advertised on its website. In future it would be great to see a bigger emphasis placed on sport betting by the bookmaker, incorporating more competitive odds, better promotional offers and increased marketing material to attract new customers and grow its reputation.
