Matchbook Sports Betting Review
Matchbook has been in the betting business since 2004, when they were oriented more towards US audiences. But with a change in owners around 2011, they turned towards the European and Asian market, which now they cater to.
The long experience in the industry is clear right from the landing page, which strikes you with a modern and very practical design. And even though it also has a casino, it’s the sport section that takes a spotlight at Matchbook’s platform. But does it have all it takes to be a great sportsbook? Keep reading and find out.
Matchbook Sportsbook Bonus
Matchback welcomes players with a Cashback offer that can get you up to £50 during the first 5 weeks of using the exchange. To get your cashback money, you have to earn Matchbook Points by placing back and lay bets.
For every £100 in wins or loses, you will earn one point, which can also be earned for every £1 in commission (1%). When you earn your first 5 points, you’ll get a £5 credit, and any other points can be similarly exchanged during the first 5 weeks.
There are also other promotions like Free Bet bonuses which are occasionally offered by the sportsbook, but none were available at the time of writing.
Matchbook is designed to offer a simple and intuitive approach to betting that’s possible by a side bar menu which has become a standard in the online betting industry. But while other sites may get overwhelming to use, here finding markets feels more natural, which might be due to the smaller market offer, but is nevertheless refreshing. The app offers the same smooth experience, together with the stylish high-quality design.
Like most seasoned betting exchanges, Matchbook offers decent variety when it comes to its sport offer. The standard assortment of popular Basketball, Football, Ice Hockey and Tennis championships and leagues is here, along with other sports like Golf, MMA, rugby Union, Horse Racing and Cricket. There’s even a live betting offer available, although there are no streams to help you stay on track.
The only shortcoming here is that the sportsbook lacks more exotic leagues from across the globe, but also data and stats, which have become a must in today’s industry. On the other hand, it does offer betting guides and other helpful articles.
Deposit Methods & Customer Service
Depositing and withdrawing at Matchbook is possible via standard Master, Visa, Maestro and Paysafe Cards, but also e-wallets Skrill and Neteller.
And should you need any support, you can use the UK telephone line or live chat (9AM to 3AM, GMT 0), or turn to their e-mail address and FAQ section for less urgent matters.
Matchbook Sportsbook Conclusion
When it comes to first impressions, Matchbook does a great job at it. But while having a cashback reward and top-notch platform is appealing, what is lacking the most is a good promotional offer, more market variety, and stats, if it really wants to compete with the industry’s top dogs.
