N1Bet is a superb addition to some exciting new bookmakers for Irish punters, one whose arrival has sparked a lot of interest even within our global team of sports betting experts and enthusiasts. Of course, we had to try them ourselves and we’re thrilled to report that N1 Bet sportsbook offers wagering access to almost two hundred sports, competitive odds, a cutting-edge betting platform and plenty of convenient payment options.
N1Bet is operated by Dama NV under the rules of a Curaçao gambling licence. The same company runs a number of other reputable gambling sites including BitStarz, King Billy and Spin Samurai. Find out all you need to know by continuing to read this detailed review.
Newcomers to the N1Bet sportsbook are welcomed by a 300 percent welcome bonus that maxes out at a staggering 5,000 EUR! That really is an amazing amount of money for a sportsbook welcome bonus, and it’s hard to argue with a site offering such a beneficial amount.
This bonus cash is offered as ‘OnlyWin’ bets based on the average bets you make at the site. An OnlyWin free bet is one where only winnings from the free bet are returned to the site user using the bonus. Once the total sum of all OnlyWin bets surpasses that 300 percent welcome bonus amount, then no more OnlyWin free bets are offered. No more bets are also offered once a month has passed since the player’s initial deposit.
There are a number of additional deposit bonus offer too:
Note: an ‘Allwin’ free bet is one where the stake is returned along with any winnings, but only if the bet itself is a winning one. There are no wagering requirements or any need to place a qualifying bet.
You do not need a N1Bet promo code in order to claim any of these initial deposit bonuses. Make sure you check each offer T&Cs as conditions such as minimum odds apply.
There are specific combo boosts available at the N1Bet sportsbook, and there are at least four available on specific sports and markets at any one time. You may find that combo boosts are offered for all international events, all leading basketball events, or all basketball events in a specific country, such as Brazil for example.
Combo boosts can be as high as 70 percent and are applied to combination, accumulator, or parlay bets with a minimum of four events. The more single events in your combo, the higher the boost but your combo has to reach specific minimum odds in order to qualify. Check the site’s T&Cs for details.
You will also get offered free bets at N1Bet, depending on how many bets you place at the site, and the size of them. There are three types of free bet, as follows:
The N1Bet sports book boasts that it offers access to 180 sports via its sports betting platform, and after we had a look around the N1Bet betting site, we can confirm the truthfulness of this statement.
There are countless markets here, and access to all major competitions all across the globe. The main options are football betting rugby (union and league), volleyball, cricket, tennis and basketball, which is quite the eclectic mix.
Once you dive down into the menus you can see all the betting market options available and the good news for Irish people is that both Gaelic Football and Gaelic Hurling are both covered. Other popular sports here include boxing, eSoccer, handball and floorball.
Unfortunately, two popular betting pastimes that are not covered though are horse race betting and greyhounds, as is common with sites that have a Curaçao licence.
The sports betting software used by N1Bet is extremely comprehensive. You have a number of ways of defining your account, and you can even choose from a number of different languages and odds display options – more than most as sites generally just offer a choice between fractional and decimal odds.
Finding your way around may seem a little daunting at first, but with the useful menus and the search functions, you’ll seem less overwhelmed. You can simply filter out any markets and events that do not interest you anyhow.
Away from the sports betting side of things you’ll find that N1Bet also offers eSports, casino and live casino options.
N1Bet Sports can offer you a dedicated live betting section, so if you prefer in-play betting to pre-match betting, you’re in the right place. The live betting section is incredibly comprehensive, but if you’re struggling to find a specific event you can use the search function.
The N1 sports betting site does not offer any live streaming of any events, but you can check out our coverage of the best Irish betting sites with Live Streaming.
N1 Bet has one of the easiest registration processes that we have come across recently. Here are the 3 steps to join up:
That’s it! You are now free to deposit money, although you will need to fully complete your account profile and go through the verification processes before you do. We were impressed by the verification processes we found at N1Bet as we feel it is important that all online sportsbooks should take their verification processes seriously.
There are plenty of user-friendly payment providers to get money into and out of your account at N1Bet. Most people in Ireland will be content to use their Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card to make and receive payments. If you prefer an eWallet you can use Skrill or Neteller, or for increased anonymity Paysafecard. People in Germany can use Sofort and people in Canada can use Interac. There are plenty of other options, and even a few cryptocurrencies are available.
It is perfectly acceptable at N1Bet to run your account in Euros. The minimum accepted deposit is €20 (or the equivalent if using a cryptocurrency) and all deposits are processed instantly, with no sign of any fees.
Most payment methods can be used for withdrawals too, and again there are no fees and the minimum amount is €20. All deposits are processed instantly aside from bank transfers, which should be completed within five to seven banking days.
N1 Bet Sports is definitely one to consider listing as one of our recommended Ireland betting sites. However, newbie sports bettors may take one look at the desktop version of the N1Bet sportsbook and feel a little overwhelmed. There is a little bit too much to it, and it takes some time to get used to it.
The sportsbook software is provided by SwissSoft, who have been one of the leading providers of both sports betting and casino software for over a decade now.
The main focus of the desktop site is in-play betting, with all the current leading events up front. Confusingly, ‘simulated’ football games are included too. We would have preferred it if real and simulated events were kept separate.
Below live play there are all the major events of the day, with football, tennis and basketball taking priority. You can filter to a specific discipline by clicking the icons in the visual menu.
If you do want to find a specific event, your best bet is to click on the magnifying glass icon on the main menu. This will quickly list any events that match the letters or words you type into the search box. We found this aspect of the software worked very quickly and were suitably impressed.
N1Bet does not supply any specific mobile betting apps either for iOS or Android. This should only be a slight annoyance though as you get the full functionality of the superbly designed N1Bet site if you access the site on a mobile browser on your chosen device. The site looks impressive on mobile, and N1Bet has put a lot of work into the mobile configuration.
The odds at N1Bet Sports are set and maintained by the SoftSwiss source software. SoftSwiss supplies sportsbook software to several online betting sites, so they make sure that odds are very competitive. The site does not have ‘best odds guaranteed’, but we compared the odds to other sites and found them to be very competitive.
N1Bet Sports does not offer any enhanced odds deals, choosing instead to concentrate upon their comboboost offers. Notably, the odds format here can be changed to any one of a number of different formats: European (decimal), British (fractional), Hong Kong, American, Indonesian or Malay.
To get customer support, you need to open the side menu and then abseil down to the bottom and click on the support button. A live chat applet will pop up on the right side of your screen. Fill in your name and email to start the chat off.
Our query was responded to immediately, but we think it was by a bot only. It took around 30 seconds for the query to be read, and around another two minutes for it to be answered. The answer was completely satisfactory, and we feel customer support here is decent enough on this basis.
N1Bet does not offer any kind of defined sports betting VIP or loyalty programme however, it will offer bespoke deals and promotions to loyal and regular customers. This is done on a customer-by-customer basis though, and the deals you are offered depend upon your level and frequency of your use of the site. The site does have a VIP scheme, but it is for casino (slots) players only.
This sportsbook has its own dedicated responsible gambling section, as well as links to organisations such as Gambling Therapy and Gamblers Anonymous. The site’s responsible gambling section informs you of how you can set deposit limits, loss limits and wager limits. You can also set cooling off periods (up to six months) and self-exclude yourself for a year.
The site also offers links to services such as NetNanny where you can block your access to the site via your ISP.
There is so much to like about N1Bet Sports, especially if you are a seasoned sports bettor. Newbies may find it a little bewildering at first, but by using the filtering and search options, mastery over the site can easily be achieved. Registration is super-swift, and it’s very easy to get money into and out of your N1Bet Sports account.
We can see no reason as to why we would not give this site anything but a thumbs up, and we hope that you will feel the same.
Yes, that is set at €10.
Very good, to say the least. The site says it covers almost 200 sports.
No, but you can access the site via any mobile browser.
Perfectly safe. The site is properly licensed and has good responsible gambling resources.
For most methods it’s instant, but bank transfers may take up to seven days.
The licence is from the government of Curaçao.
