Betboo Bookmaker History And License
Betboo is a Turkish company of origin. It was founded in 2004 but began to work completely in 2005. Initially, it tried to cover a big region of players.
Unfortunately, the bookmaker does not offer players the option to use their website in English, instead, they offer Turkish or Brazilian Portuguese.
A Turkish company by origin they began life in 2005 and have existed in many guises until in 2010 they narrowed their focus and settled on the Turkish and Brazilian markets, where in the same year they won the Latin American operator of the year award. As of 2011, they diverted their headquarters to the gaming tax haven of Malta in the EU, where they now hold their gaming license. In 2015 they again underwent further changes when they became part of the company Headlong Limited.
The many changes in the company name, the license holder and market focus are likely made to appear more complex by the lack of an English language site and ‘about us’ section to this author. However, a seemingly inconsistent business model does not shriek security and it must be said a quick Google of their name does reveal several complaints, although none since 2012. With the mass of potential customers available to bookmakers who operate in English, it is perhaps a little surprising that they don’t offer an English service, although narrowing your target audience can be beneficial for many companies.
It must also be said that their Turkish and Brazilian options offer two completely different websites, not only in relation to language, but also design, layout and betting options.
There are two different sites, which differ even in design. None of the sites has additional language versions (only Turkish and Brazilian). It should be noted that the design of the Portuguese version of the website is significantly different from Turkish. The main colors of the Turkish version of Betboo are black, green, gray and orange. The Portuguese version of Betboo dominates such colors as white, red and green.
The online resource does not have a welcome page: the customer immediately gets into the betting section. You can switch to another gaming platform (poker and casino) from the top menu. The sports section is arranged unconventionally: a full list of sports is horizontal and located at the top of the screen. On the left, it is possible to find the block with the most popular links and banners. Traditionally in the center, it is a live section. On the right, you can find the code for betting, most popular bets and some other auxiliary blocks.
There is no technical menu with links to statistics, match center, support, etc. The site has no statistical section. Provide additional options are only the live-broadcast and mobile version. Thus, the functionality of betboo.com is not so good. There are no specific complaints concerning a technological level. The design is dark-green and old-fashioned. Site navigation is not convenient because there is no a compact menu with links to supporting materials. The line is unusual and illogical.
Betboo Sports Betting
Seeing as their primary focus is in Turkey and Brazil, a nation famed for its love of Football it is little surprise their main sportsbook focus is, indeed on Football. The Brazilian focus is largely on their domestic leagues and cups but they also give attention to Argentinian Football, as well as major European competitions like the Champions League, Europa League and the major domestic leagues like the Premier League.
Whereas, the Turkish version concentrates on Turkish Football and other major European football competitions, giving less credence to South American Football. Additional to Football, Betboo offers the chance to bet on 20 other sports including Basketball, Baseball, Hockey (NHL), Formula 1, American Football and the other main sports, with no niche options like Bowls. However, they do offer the chance to bet on politics in their Sportsbook.
What’s more, they also give you the chance to bet on virtual sports, including Football, Basketball, Tennis, Dog Racing and Horse Racing with an animated performance you can watch – which has the appearance of an extremely dated game of Fifa.
Betboo Live Betting
Betboo has a moderately expansive selection of in-play betting options with a fairly large array of Football options across Europe and South America, including Women’s Football. Yet, they are let down in their non-footballing options with only limited Tennis, Basketball, Volleyball and Rugby Union options available, with a very small scope of matches to bet on.
Betboo does not offer a mobile app but does offer mobile compatible websites for both their websites, with no technological complaint of their sites glaringly obvious, it is instead their layout that is a little confusing to the regular English speaking site user (not just because of the language). No compact site navigation menu can be found, and sporting options take a horizontal stance across the page instead of the usual vertical list on the left-hand side of the page.
Betboo Payment Options
The work with the account supports only 6 payment methods, among which there is no such a popular service like Skrill. Withdrawal methods are popular only in Brazil and Turkey. The most convenient way to deposit is to use an international Bankcard. The fee is not charged, but the minimum deposit sum is quite high – 100 US dollars. For withdrawal, it can be used only bank transfer, EcoCard, and Visa. In this case, the minimum transaction is $ 30, the maximum – $ 7,000. The minimum bet sum is $ 1 and the maximum may vary. You can fund your account in four currencies: euro, dollar, pound and the Brazilian real.
There are many bonus offers for customers in the Turkish version of the Betboo sportsbook. They deal both with sports betting and Casino. New players can look forward to a welcome bonus of up to $ 1,800. The bonus is credited automatically within three days. There is no need to send requests. In addition to the welcome bonus, Betboo betting provides a reward for wagers on virtual sport and many specific offers on particular events or tournaments.
Betboo Customer Service
As in keeping with their websites, customer service is only available in Turkish and Portuguese, with E-mail and a live chat options for customers to convey queries or concerns. Although the live chat option is only for those registered with Betboo, excluding potential customers from using this option.
