Bethard has been on the sports betting scene since 2012 and holds licenses from the likes of the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority. While progress was somewhat slow in its early years, Bethard has been gaining momentum in recent times. As well as its sports betting offering, there is also an online casino and fantasy sports offering available on the platform.

|Competitive odds across the board|
If you create a new account, you will be able to get access to the Bethard welcome bonus package. This allows you to get a 100% first deposit bonus of up to €50. You need to select this offer from the deposit menu before making your transaction. There is no Bethard bonus code needed as a result to claim this deal. The minimum required deposit is €20, and you cannot claim the offer if you deposit via Paysafecard.
In order to cash out the bonus funds, you need to wager them and your deposit four times at odds of at least 1.80 before they can be withdrawn. You have 60 days to meet the wagering requirements and cashed out bets do not contribute to the turnover targets. This is an ideal welcome offering our opinion, with the bonus being larger than many competitors.
As well as the welcome offer, there will often be special promotions on offer for existing Bethard bettors. These include the likes of enhanced prices, money back Bethard offers, and risk-free bets. There is also a cashout and partial-cashout feature that can be used to cut your losses or cash out some profit when your bet is still active.
If you are in the market for Bethard free bets, the welcome offer gives you the chance to get your hands on up to €50 worth of free bets. While there are wagering requirements attached, the size of this free bet offer is a lot bigger than most competitors. With the qualifying bet requirements being reasonably achievable, it is definitely a free bet deal worth considering.
There is a great range of different sports and markets available at Bethard. There are 18 different sports or niche betting types to check out. Everything from football to golf, tennis, esports, and political betting are all offered. In terms of the number of events supported, Bethard is up there with the best around. You will also get plenty of in-depth selections for the event. This means that you will have hundreds of markets for a leading football game.
Even for the smaller football games across the world, you will still get access to over 100 markets in nearly every case. The political betting offering has become increasingly popular as of late, with esports also being a fan favourite in terms of the niche side of the offering. However, you can't go wrong with the bread-and-butter markets at Bethard.
One of the best aspects of using Bethard to place bets is the ease of use of the entire platform. There are ultra-fast speeds when adding selection to your betting slip, with the process being as simple as it possibly could be.
For fans of in-play betting, there is an extensive range of stats you can get access to during a given event. This allows you to have more information when you are placing bets. The feed updates in real-time too, meaning that you will not be lagging behind the actual game.
One of the features that have become increasingly popular across sportsbooks is the cashout and partial cashout feature. This means that you can cut your losses on a bet that looks like it will be a loser or cashing some profits before all is said and done. You can check out your open bets to see what selections can be cashed out and for what amount.
For fans of in-play betting, you will be spoilt for choice with the great range of live sporting events that are supported live daily. All major sports, such as football, horse racing, and tennis will also have plenty of events to check out.
The range of betting markets for a given sporting event is also impressive, giving you great flexibility. The interface updates in real-time and there is minimal downtime for the updating odds. This all combines for a strong in-play betting offering.
Currently, Bethard does not offer any live streaming of sporting events on its betting site.
We were delighted that we could sign up for a new account with Bethard in just a few minutes. We simply entered our personal info, such as full name, date of birth, and address, before setting the account details and confirming agreement to the terms and conditions.
While you do not need to verify your account until you are ready to make your first withdrawal, we prefer to complete this step during the registration process. All you have to do is to provide a copy of some photo ID, as well as proof of address and you will be good to go. If a sportsbook did not ask you to complete this step, we would be concerned. You are now ready to complete your Bethard login and start placing bets.
There is a limited selection of available payment methods at Bethard, but they generally cover all of the popular options. You can add funds to your account via your debit card, Neteller, Skrill, Sofort, Paysafecard, Much Better, Zimpler, and Trustly. Most of these options will allow for instant deposits and carry a minimum required deposit of €10.
The options are even more limited for making a withdrawal, with your options being debit cards, Neteller, Skrill, and Trustly. After the withdrawal request is approved, your e-wallet and Trustly payouts should process within a few hours. For card withdrawals, it can take 2-5 business days. The minimum required deposit is currently €20.
The Bethard desktop offering is very sleek and sharp. The site speed is very snappy and the navigation system is clear and concise. You will quickly be able to filter through the available markets in no time, with the betting slip system working seamlessly. This goes for both pregame and in-play betting. If you want to look for a specific game or market, you can do so with the search tool.
If you want to place bets on your mobile device, there is an app you can download for both iOS and Android devices. You can find the iOS version in the App Store, with the Android version easily downloaded from the Bethard website. The same sleek colour scheme and ease of use are apparent with the mobile offering. Alternatively, you can also place bets on the mobile website at Bethard through your device’s web browser.
Across the board, the odds at Bethard are solid, without being spectacular. You can consistently expect to get a decent offering for all sports. Sometimes you can find that certain sportsbooks have better odds in certain areas than others, but this is not the case with Bethard.
There is a limited FAQ section that answers a few common questions. For other queries, there is a live chat feature for simple questions.
