Betsafe is another in a line of successful bookie brands that have been around for a while. Nowadays, you may be getting used to them. We’re way past the time a bookie would try to scam you out of your winnings online, but does Betsafe have what it takes to attract new eSports players?
We’re putting Betsafe’s eSports markets under a loop at a time when there’s 60+ matches open for bets. Not one of them had more than one betting option besides match winner. Although the case for this may vary as time goes on, it’s not looking good at the moment.
As most other bookies, Betsafe covers primarily League of Legends, alongside Starcraft 2, Dota 2, CS:GO and Call of Duty. Tournaments in the likes of LoL LCS, Dota 2 and CS:GO majors are widely covered.
No in-play betting on eSports matches is available at Betsafe at present time.
As a new Betsafe customer, you won’t come across a lucrative bonus such as the one at Bet365 or Betway, but a bonus is still a good plus nonetheless. New players are eligible for a 50% match up to £25.
Seriousness and trustworthiness:
Betsafe has been around since 2001. They’re still here, and that’s a fact which speaks volumes in itself. The bookie is owned by the prestigious Betsson group, and it holds a license under the Malta Gaming Authority.
Betsafe’s support team is extremely friendly to users and adequately helpful to boot. What’s is that you have multiple options of contact; e-mail, live chat and telephone. They’re at your service 24/7.
Betsafe support payments through VISA, Maestro, Mastercard, Entropay, Skrill, Neteller, Citadel Banking and iDeal. There’s plenty to choose from regardless of where you reside. Withdrawals, as per usual, can take up to 5 business days to process, while deposits are instant and carry no fees.
Design and navigation:
Betsafe’s website is lightweight and easy to navigate, but a tad clustered once you start picking out matches to bet on. Moreover, we were pleasantly surprised to see eSports as a separate category right as you click on the sport menu. It’s a good sign that they’re taking it seriously and will hopefully expand in the future with more betting markets.
