GTbets, or also known as ‘Game Time’ bets, has consistently had our attention for its unique promos that cater to fans of major North American sports. GTbets.eu has been operating online since 2011 and since then they have built a loyal following of bettors with their sportsbook.
Their sign-up bonus is generous and promotions are innovative, they offer numerous fee free deposit methods, and they possess huge positives for players. In the end, it’s the perfect place for most players. It all depends on your betting style and preferences.
The payout department is only open on weekdays from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm EST, so if you want a payout the same day as your request, all the information must be submitted by noon.
GTbets does require documentation to get a payout including the front and back of the credit card, a valid government ID, a signed authorization form, and a copy of a recent utility bill. Direct Cash, Quick Cash, Bitcoin, and Back2Card aren’t available for the first two withdrawals unless approved by management.
Though their “favorite team” promotion has recently declined in value over the years, it’s still enticing. You can choose two favorite teams in the NBA, NFL, college basketball, and college football, and get an extra half-point break on spreads. Once upon a time, you could get a point or two, but when the spread falls on a key number, a half-point is still huge. Note that maximum bets are a little lower ($3,000 for college football and $5,000 for the NFL), it only applies to regular-season games, and it is only in effect on straight wagers and sides.
Like most sites, GTbets has a Refer-a-Friend program, though there are more provisions involved. They offer 50% of your friend’s deposit with a maximum of $400, and the rollover is a rather hefty 5x points multiplied by the bonus bet amount. To qualify, your account must have made a deposit within the last three months. Referrals from the same household aren’t eligible.
For the average bettor, GTbets checks all the boxes. You can wager on all of the major sporting events, the website is easy to use, and there are many pleasant surprises along the way. That said, their limits aren’t too high and their lines aren’t among the first posted. That said, casual bettors who want to bet a few bucks on high-profile events will have a seamless and enjoyable experience.
However, they do not have the following week’s lines up on Sunday evening, and teams that are involved in Sunday or Monday night games seem to have a delay of 24 hours of before getting their next spread. This is important for those who are trying to get the best side of a line right when it goes up, or parlay an early-week basketball number with a Sunday NFL spread. But for most bettors, it is an unimportant detail.
Point spreads at GTbets tend to be slightly shaded towards the public. This is a two-way street. Management understands that the majority of their customers aren’t professionals, and the public likes to bet on star players and marquee teams. Bettors may pay a small price whether it be on the spread or juice to bet on the Patriots, but can see some benefit if they back teams like the Titans. Generally, GTbets will adjust up to -120/+120 before shifting spreads.
GTbets is particularly well-laid out for live betting, and both laptop and mobile platforms are nearly identical to the regular platform. The first betting lines that pop up are for ongoing games (or those about to start), and while the in-play betting menu is extensive, it’s inconsistent. A ton of college basketball is available in live betting, and the NFL is covered completely. However, NHL and NBA games are hit and miss, and soccer is mostly limited to the marquee matches.
The GTbets mobile platform is excellent. Upon logging in, your balance is clearly displayed, and large icons can take you to sports, casino, horses, cashier, rewards, or account information quickly.
To the sites’ credit, they will pay out full pools on Pick 4 winners (minus the takeout when nobody has the correct combination on track) but that’s extremely rare. Furthermore, they don’t allow any fifty-cent super exotic wagers.
The reps at GTbets are perfectly lovely to talk or chat with, but it’s baffling why the live chat doesn’t operate from 4:00 am to 10:00 am (EST). The email support is standard and workable, but, like most sites, if you have questions, it’s best to call the GTbets phone number.
Chat responses are professional, but not overly fast. GTbets’ customer service will help you get the information you want, but sometimes it takes asking the same question multiple times or being very specific in your question, to get them off-script.
