New customers with Genting Bet can claim £10 in the form of a free bet if the first settled bet for £10 or more does not win. This welcome offer is subject to the following Terms & Conditions:

 

  • New customers only and existing customers are not eligible.
  • The qualifying bet is the first settled bet.
  • The stake must be £10 or more.
  • The bet must lose and any winning bets do not count.
  • Single bet must be at odds of 2.0 or bigger or each selection in a multiple must be at odds of 1.4 or bigger.
  • Only the win element of each way bets counts.

New customer offer. Place 5 x £10 or more bets to receive £20 in free bets. Repeat up to 5 times to receive maximum £100 bonus. Min odds 1/2 (1.5). Exchange bets excluded. T&Cs apply.

The value of the free bet is small but the qualifying conditions are clear and easy to achieve. If the first bet is a loser the offer equates to a 100% matched bet bonus. It is in fact insurance against a losing bet but if the first bet wins the free bet is not activated. The timescales are realistic and most free bets will be used.

Mobile Exclusive Sign Up Offers

Genting Bet does not offer any promotions specifically for mobile users. Customers using Android, iOS and PC’s are entitled to the welcome offer of £10 in the form of a free bet. It is possible to open an account using a smartphone or tablet and new mobile customers can claim the new customer bonus. Some operators have promotions for which only mobile customers are eligible but it is more common to operate like Genting Bet and offer bonuses for all customers regardless of the device.

Promotions

Genting Bet does not offer dynamic promotions for existing customers. There is not a package of free bets and bonuses to complement the welcome offer. The operator does not compete using free bets and bonuses but relies on the trust in the brand established over more than 50 years to attract new customers and maintain the loyalty of existing customers. At the time of writing the site featured just one offer:

Genting Bet Android App

Genting Bet has developed a mobile app for Android devices. The app does not appear on Google Play because that store does not feature anything related to gambling. The security settings must be changed to accept downloads from Unknown Sources. Once the app is available customers can make deposits and start betting.

Genting Bet App For iPhone & iPad

The Genting bet app for iOS users can be downloaded from the Apple Store. Potential mobile users visit the store and search for ‘Genting Bet’. Customers click on the Genting Bet app and the download will begin. Once the app has been downloaded iOS customers can deposit funds and place bets.

Genting Bet Mobile Site Shortcut On Your Home Screen

There is also a mobile version of the Genting Bet site. Mobile users require a suitable browser that is optimised for mobile betting. By visiting the Genting Bet Homepage on a mobile device users are directed to the mobile optimised version of the site. The next stage of the process is to Add Shortcut On Home Page. The Genting Bet icon and link will then appear on the home screen of the mobile device. The mobile version of the site is ready for depositing funds and betting. The mobile site has all the functions of the desktop version and is well presented and easy to navigate.

Genting Bet App Features

Players using the Genting Bet mobile app can benefit from the following betting services and features:

In-Play

Genting Bet offers customers daily in-play events across a number of sports. At the time of writing customers could place live bets on fixtures in football, tennis, cricket, snooker, volleyball and handball. The site also displays a calendar of future in-play events. The live betting interface does not feature live streaming which is available with other online bookmakers.

 

There is no graphical representation of play and there is a limited range of match date. In-play betting is certainly an area in which Genting Bet can improve and a better service will only become apparent in the fullness of time. The in-play offer is similar to that of competitors in that betting is suspended after significant incidents. These include a goal, penalty or sending off in football or break of serve in tennis.

Blog

Customers with Genting Bet can read previews of major sporting events in a Blog. The blog articles include detailed form analysis of events in football, horse racing and other sports when the event justifies coverage. The previews quote odds for a number of outcomes which are linked to the relevant betting markets. The amount of detail makes this feature one of the selling points of the Genting Bet sportsbook. The Blog page also displays Quick Links to the main sporting events of the day, football coupons and an A-Z list of the betting sports on the site.

Betting Rules

Customers with Genting Bet have access to comprehensive betting rules which are part of the customer support package. The rules are displayed by sport and there are also general rules. Most of the potential issues are covered in the rules but if further guidance is required customers can contact support staff by email and phone. Live Help is available for 24 hours each day including public holidays which makes the Genting Bet customer support service one of the best in the industry.

Markets

The Genting Bet product range for mobile users features a casino and live casino, slots, virtuals and sports betting. The site also has a link to the locations of the group’s physical casinos in the UK. There are 42 premises in towns and cities.

General

The main sports page displays Quick links to the main betting events of the day which are generally related to football and horse racing. Football coupons list the odds for the biggest leagues of the day. The A-Z list features about 30 sports in alphabetical order. In addition to the regular sports, customers can bet on Politics, TV and Entertainment and Awards.  The biggest betting sports in terms of bets placed and turnover are football, horse racing and tennis and here is information about the bets.

Football

Football is the biggest betting sport and the Premier League in England and Champions League generate the most betting. At the time of writing in August 2019 there were no fixtures in either competition and the major matches of the day were qualifiers for Euro 2020. Genting Bet displays the match odds for each fixture with a link to additional markets of which there are about 50 in total. The football betting options appear under the headings of handicaps, goals, half, goal time, cards, corners and team. Bets in some markets can be cashed out before the final outcome is known.  Genting Bet also offers ante-post betting on domestic leagues and Cups in Europe and international tournaments including the European Championship finals, World Cup, Copa America and Africa Cup of Nations.

Horse Racing

Horse racing is still a popular betting sport in the UK despite the growth of sports betting by cash in betting offices and online. ‘Next Horse Races’ is the first option on the Quick Links menu. Customers can bet on meetings in Britain and Ireland and there are odds for racing the following day. Genting bet has betting markets for future races which are displayed by date. The site features ante-post betting for races at the Cheltenham Festival and Royal Ascot and individual races such as the Grand National over jumps and the five Classics on the Flat. Genting Bet offers Best Odds Guaranteed on all meetings in the UK and Ireland.

Tennis

Tennis is a global sport and popular with gamblers in the UK, the rest of Europe and other parts of the world. Genting Bet offers betting on ATP and WTA matches, Challenger events and ITF tournaments. The two-way match result market is displayed with a link to about 25 related markets. These tennis betting options appear under the headings of match, totals and handicaps. The site also features ante-post betting for the upcoming Grand Slam tournaments.

About Genting Bet

Genting Bet has brought together the gaming software expertise of FSB Technology and the experience in gaming from over 50 years operating casinos in the UK. The branding is familiar to casino players and there is information about the locations on the site. The operator has a good mix of experience in online and land based gaming operations and that has created a positive sports betting experience. There are some limitations such as an average in-play interface and the lack of dynamic promotions for current players. If there are improvements in these areas Genting Bet will offer a sports betting service that is one of the best outside of the trusted UK brands.

Bottom Line

The positives outweigh the negatives and Genting Bet offers a decent service despite being relatively new to the industry. The pre-match user interface works well, there is live betting on many events, the customer service department is open all around the clock and the betting environment is safe and secure. There is some work to be done but Genting Bet is a perfectly decent destination for sports betting.
