Ohmbet Sportsbook Review
Recently founded in 2014, Ohmbet is part of the Radon B.V. registered in the Commercial register of Curacao.
Ohmbet focuses on MMA and UFC as well as Football, and has this year become a betting partner with mixedmartialarts.com and UFC 196. Despite being in its infancy, Ohmbet has grown quickly in this field offering very competitive odds especially for UFC/MMA players.
The ambassador for Ohmbet is the Belgian professional Mixed Martial Artist, Tarec Saffiedine, who currently competes in the Welterweight division of the UFC.
The bookmakers operate in Europe mostly and are barred in the US. However, they also support Mandarin, Arabic and are one of five companies who currently support South Korean.
Ohmbet has a big online presence on both Twitter and Facebook.
In addition to Sports, Casino and Live Casino offerings, Ohmbet covers a huge variety of sports, over 60 in total, with the usual markets and some more interesting ones listed below:
Alpine skiing, Table Tennis, Archery, Biathlon, Canoeing, Chess, Cross Country Skiing, Diving, Gaelic Football, Hurling, Politics, Synchronized Swimming, Taaekwondo, Triatholon, Weight lifting and Greco-Roman Wrestling.
The focus, however is on their UFC and MMA betting.
The first thing that is noticeable is the lack of a live streaming facility for sports on the website, although they do offer live casino games for players to take part in.
They also only offer Cash back on Casino games and miss a huge market by not adding this feature to their live sports betting.
Usability of the site
The website is well designed and it is clear that a lot of effort has been put into the layout making it easy and clear for first time players. There is also a live chat feature, but its location could be made more obvious.
There are many promotions on offer, which are easy to navigate to, with Ohmbet’s focus being on it’s €100 sign-up fee. They accept most payment methods including Yandex and Skrill.
The website has 16 working languages, most of which are European, but there is also a few languages to choose from Asia mentioned in the Background section.
The mobile app designed for mobile use and is not advertised clearly on their site and needs a lot more work, a point recognised by the reviews.
In a difficult, competitive market, it is a good sign when bookmakers can do so well in such a short space of time. However, with no live streaming, no cash out option for sports and poor mobile/tablet support the bookmaker will struggle to compete.
