Sekabet Sportsbook Review
Sekabet is a Turkish based sports betting operator that specialises in Bitcoin payments, but also offers regular payment options including through Credit Card, ecoPayx, NETeller, Paykasa, Paysafecard and Skrill. Licensed in Malta it offers a wide range of European languages meaning that they are clearly targeting the European market – but with an Asian edge. Their website boasts a new gambling option called ‘Asian Betting’ where you can bet on worldwide sporting events, but teams are given handicaps based on form. For instance a stronger team that is in better form must win by more goals – for a punter betting on them to win. This system of betting was given its name due to it being originated in Indonesia. When internet searching the company they do not have that many English language reviews online. One review site claims that they were founded in 2011, and with no date of origin given on their website it’s difficult to know when exactly they joined the industry. Furthermore, they have contrasting reviews on forums with some members praising the swiftness of their pay outs and others criticising the blocking of pay outs and citing examples of being conned out of winnings. However, it is always difficult to take gambling forum debates at complete face value.
Sekabet offers a an extensive and varied range of sports to play with, they offer betting options on more or less every sport you could imagine. Including football matches all over the world from Australia to all the European leagues and South, Central, and North America. What’s more you can also bet on football transfers, with high profile and even fairly low profile footballer movements given odds alongside a selection of teams. You can also bet on all the other sports you can expect, plus slightly more niche options like Table Tennis, Winter Sports, E-Sports and Volleyball to cite just a few examples. As such, they have a pretty extensive sportsbook.
Other gambling options include the above explained Asian Betting, Horse Racing, various Poker games, a Live Casino, Table and Slot Games and Bingo.
As far as live betting goes SekaBet offer a pretty full menu. They have an extensive array of worldwide football, which can get as obscure as you like with Japanese, Australian and Thai football among the genuinely worldwide games on offer. They also offer a wider than usual array of betting options with main results, goals, corners, halves and a fast market in which you can bet on the next five minutes of whether or not a match will or will not contain a goal, corner or penalty, with some pretty strong odds on offer.
There is no downloadable mobile betting app, but their web page does support all apple
and android devices with an altered screen for mobiles.
When you sign up to Sekabet they offer you a 50 Euro sportsbook welcome bonus. However it is only available to initial deposits and you must contact live support to apply for the bonus welcome offer.
They offer their website in the following languages, English, Croatian Finnish, German, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish. You can also email queries in any language, but they only deal in live chat queries and questions in English, Polish, Serbian, and Turkish. In these languages help is available 24/7 but otherwise emails can take sometimes up to two days for a response.
With limited reliable English language online reviews it is difficult to assess the trustworthiness of Sekabet. Despite this they do definitely offer a wide and impressive array of playing options and with a decent signing up bonus, perhaps it is worth finding out for yourself.
