NetBet Sports has established itself as one of the leading lights in the ever-growing online sports betting industry. Since its initial inception in 2001, NetBet has strived to offer its members a rich and diverse online sports betting experience, putting deliberate emphasis on delivering exceptional choice and variety. This is more evident than ever today, as NetBet now enables bettors to enjoy immediate access to hundreds of sports betting markets, many of them via in-play and mobile betting platforms.
NetBet currently provides new bettors with a bonus on their first deposit, their money back if one of their five-folds lets them down, and a bonus on any American sports betting accumulators.
As mentioned previously, the sports coverage offered by NetBet is considerable to say the least. At present, there are at least 28 separate sports markets (not including specials) available for betters to sample.
The bigger markets, such as domestic and European football, offer huge depth. Indeed, a Premier League match, for example, often has more than 28 various wager selections available. American sports and tennis selections also offer plentiful betting opportunities, with wagers being taken on all possible variants of games, as well as handicaps and props.
NetBet was one of the first online gaming companies to see the potential of in-play betting, and as such it now offers some of the most comprehensive and exciting in-play wager options available anywhere. Certainly, there are few other online bookmakers that can claim to have up to 400 markets in-play at any one time, or offer 10,000 live games per month.
NetBet's customer support is efficient and reactive, with 24/7 phone/fax lines, email and a live chat option running between 8am and 12am. Bettors can use VISA, MasterCard, Skrill, and paysafecard among others to make deposits and withdrawals.
Naturally, the site uses cutting edge encryption technology to ensure all financial transfers remain safe and secure.
With outstanding graphics, strong execution and a selection of different play options (instant, download, or mobile) all coming as standard, most visitors to the site realise they are in for a treat within moments of arriving. NetBet's mobile offering has also launched a betting platform. This means that registered members with suitable mobile phones and/or tablets can enjoy a flutter wherever or whenever they choose.
NetBet's real strength lies in the fact that it offers a huge selection of sporting markets and a plethora of wager types, so players with particularly diverse sporting interests can rest assured they will find what they're looking for. Wagers include combined bets, exact scores, MT/FT, as well as traditional straight up wagers and even American style point spread options.
Depending on their preference, bettors can choose between three different wager formats: Fractional (UK), Decimal (EU) and American (US). In general, NetBet's odds are modestly lucrative, especially on lesser-known sporting options.
At present, the minimum stake for pre-live bets at NetBet is €0.07 and €0.13 for live bets (or currency equivalent). There is no set maximum stake. If players are refused a bet for any reason, they will be offered an alternative amount.
The sleek and swift NetBet Sports website is powered by iSoftBet (ISB) software, a relatively recent addition to the online wagering market. Despite remaining an unknown quantity to some, this platform is fast and reliable, providing an interesting alternative to the more 'standard' software options seen so ubiquitously elsewhere.
Overall, NetBet's outstanding choice of markets, all-encompassing live-play features and flexible mobile options make it a very appealing online sports betting destination indeed.
