Efbet Bookmaker Review
Efbet Sports started life as the Bulgarian-based bookmaker, BalkanBet, and has been in operation since 2006. The bookmaker was re-branded in 2011 and is now headquartered and licensed in Malta.
The change included all-new, slick website design, available in English as well as the company’s native Bulgarian.
Efbet Sports Betting
The first negative to point out is that the bookie offers no horse racing betting at all. This will be a big problem for punters who follow racing, but not such an issue for others. Beyond that gripe, the site provides odds on a good range of different sports and a wide selection of events. Football betting is extensively covered, with markets for most leagues around the world, including amateur and non-league games. All of the ‘big’ sports like American Football, Tennis and Motor Sport are covered, as well as plenty of niche sports like Chess, Volleyball, and eSports.
Odds at Efbet generally perform well in comparison to the top bookies. Analysis of recent Champions League games shows that over 150 different betting markets are available, and the odds compare favorably with the best online prices from other bookmakers.
Efbet Bonus And Promotions
Efbet offers a 25% first deposit bonus up to an amount of €100. That means you would need to deposit €400 in order to receive the full bonus. Deposit and bonus funds must be wagered 3 times over before any bonus cash can be withdrawn. You would have to place bets equivalent of €1500 at odds of no less than 1.50 before bonus funds are eligible for withdrawal. This is a sizeable task, but it is very reasonable in terms of bonus playthrough, considering that some betting sites require you to wager 30 times the bonus amount before withdrawal.
Efbet Site | App
Regular bettors will notice a striking similarity to a very well known betting site; the grey and green color scheme and the layout are remarkably familiar. Disregarding those similarities, it makes for a very easy-to-use website that most punters will find simple to navigate.
At the top of the home page is a very useful option to change the display to your particular time zone, fixtures and events are displayed to your settings so you’ll never miss kick-off. There’s also the option to switch between English, Bulgarian, Albanian and Turkish languages.
The site is split into three main columns, with a list of sports displayed to the left, the main central column used to display current events and odds, and the right column reserved for the bet slip and additional fixtures/promotions. Once again, a familiar layout! The header menu includes sports, in-play, virtuals, casinos, and bonuses, as well as a handy multi-bet button. The multi bet section displays upcoming matches with four markets – 1X2 win market, under/over 2.5 goals, 1X2 half-time result, and both teams to score – so you can quickly and easily build accumulators without switching between matches.
It’s a simple and effective layout that makes betting easy, but with no live streams or match graphics, there’s little interaction once you’ve placed your bets. There are also no dedicated apps for Android or iOS, but the mobile site is fully optimized for the small screen, and as you may have guessed, it has a more than familiar look about it!
Efbet Payment Options
The regular payment methods can all be used for deposits, and bitcoin is also accepted. No fees are applied when you deposit to your account, but they might be when you try to withdraw. The minimum deposit via any method is €5, while the minimum withdrawal is €15. Cashouts to credit or debit cards incur no fees but may take up to the usual 2-5 working days. Withdrawals to e-wallets such as Neteller, are paid out within an hour on average but are subject to a 3% fee. For smaller gamblers who don’t withdraw vast amounts this may not be a problem, but for high rollers that 3% represents a significant proportion of winnings.
Efbet Customer Support
Customer service has obviously been something that Efbet has worked on, and it now provides 24-hour support via phone, live chat or email. The website is also full of useful information in the form of FAQ’s, results and a really good statistics section to help you choose your bets.
