Review of the bookmaker Betsafe from Legalbet

Although Betsafe is now closed to UK customers, they still represent a huge bookmaker in Europe. They launched back in 2006 and they are now boasting over 500,000 customers. Betsafe was acquired by the Betsson group back in 2011, a company that also owns Racebets. Betsafe is part of the BML Group Ltd and it’s licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority.

Odds — good

We calculated the margin for Betsafe by analysing the odds they offer and placed them into one of the following three categories:

From 1% to 5%: Good value

Over 5% to 7%: Average value

Over 7% to 10%: Poor value

Football

We’re getting our results by taking into account the odds for final result outcomes measured in line with the total goals scored for different football leagues. By getting the average results using this method, we were able to obtain the margins for each league and also the overall betting margin for the bookmaker.

Betsafe has an overall margin of 4.28% for football and falls in the good value category. In the first section using odds from the Premier League, the margin is at 3.32%. The second section with Spanish La Liga and Italian Serie A, the margin is at 3.94%. Finally, by counting the English Football League One, Austrian Bundesliga and Polish Ekstraklasa into account, the margin is at 5.59%.

Betting options — good

Betsafe is aimed towards the North European customers, which means that football has the highest coverage. However, not only football has a great offering, but also does ice hockey and handball, which are also very popular in Northern Europe. All in all, there are over 35 different sports available at Betsafe with thousands of betting markets spread across all these sports. In addition, Betsafe customers can wager on various esports markets including Counter-Strike GO, League of Legends, Starcraft and Starcraft 2, Dota 2, Overwatch, etc.

Football betting

Football gets excellent coverage at Betsafe with betting markets from all over the world available. The market depth usually boasts up to 300 betting markets for the top football leagues, including over/under betting, handicaps and Asian Handicaps, correct score, 3-way Handicap, first/last/anytime goalscorer, etc. For example, tonight’s Champions League match between Paris Saint Germain and Bayern Munich offers 332 betting markets, including Statistics bets such as Time Of First Corner, Race to 2 Corners or Number Of Total Shots on Target. Each match comes with a statistics tool provided by Sportradar where customers can check the teams’ current form, head-to-head results and even player statistics.

Tennis betting

Due to the fact that Betsafe doesn’t operate in the UK anymore, they have decided to remove the horse racing section from their offer. This isn’t great for the Irish customers, but they can enjoy an excellent tennis section. 

At the moment of writing this review, we have seen numerous tennis tournaments listed on the Betsafe website, including the on-going competitions as well as the upcoming Grand Slams such as US Open, Wimbledon or the Australian Open. There are over 20 betting markets available for the pre-match fixtures and over 30 betting options for the live events. Furthermore, when clicking on a pre-match event, the customers can see the recent results and form for any tennis player involved.

Betting limits: The maximum amount you can withdraw per day at Betsafe is €50,000. The good thing is that the minimum bet limit is only 10 euro cents.

Live — normal

The In-play betting section can be easily accessed from the top menu of the homepage. It covers several sports and the customers are able to navigate through all the live events with ease. The ‘Select Market’ feature is amazing as it allows bettors to wager on a specific market for all the events at once. Betsafe also offers a visual representation pitch for any live event as well as live statistics. Furthermore, Betsafe highlights live changing odds in either green or red to signify the live updates.

In addition, Betsafe offers a live streaming service which is available for a couple of leagues, although they don’t have rights for the elite leagues. Please note that you need to have a positive balance in your account or placed a bet within the previous 24 hours in order to be able to watch some of the streams.
