Betsson Experiences

If you speak of Northern European betting tradition, you can’t get past a name – Betsson. The Swedish company can already look back on a history of more than 50 years. The Scandinavians have been represented online since the turn of the millennium. The question after fraud or respectably does not place itself therefore in practice really. No offerer can hold itself over such a long period in the top field of the bookmakers, even if only the quietest suspicion of inconsistencies would have stood in the area. Meanwhile Betsson can refer to a stable customer number of over two million Usern.

Our experiences in the overview – Betsson fraud is

Our experiences are completely positive. Fraud or rip-off we can exclude to 100 per cent. With the Swedish offerer not only the external quality characteristics are correct, Betsson can convince also in the daily business. This becomes very clear for example with the handling of the German betting tax. While other bookies pass on part of the costs to their customers, the Swedes pay the special tax solely from their own cash register. Also the customer support collects primarily due to the fast reaction times plus points.

The offers of Betsson

Betsson is serious. This is the most important point, but for the customers only one side of the coin. The users look naturally primarily at the offer of the Scandinavians. We have taken a closer look at the main areas at Betsson below.

Sports betting

The betting offer could hardly be wider. Betsson has an average of 30 sports in its portfolio and offers its customers over 20,000 individual bets every day. In the first place stands like with everyone bet offerer the king football. Betsson is on the ball around the globe. Compared to the market leaders, however, the bookie is a little behind. The league selection doesn’t really invite cheering. In Germany, for example, it only goes down to the 3rd Bundesliga. The regional and amateur upper leagues are left out. The Betsson class is typically Scandinavian in ice hockey and tennis. The supporting disciplines include table tennis, speedway and pool. TV and political events round off the offer.

The depth of the betting options is also not intoxicating. With 40 to 50 specials per match in the most important football leagues, there is still plenty of room for improvement.

A good mark is given in the test for the odds. The mathematical payout approach for the odds is 93 to 94 percent on average, with absolute highlights sometimes breaking the 96% line. The offers are balanced, without a favorite or outsider reference being recognizable.

The value of the odds key is still raised due to the bet tax exemption. For the German sports bettors, Betsson generally says “gross = net”.


The online casino builds primarily on the best-known games from Net Entertainment and Microgaming, but not only. In the category “Betsson Classics” you can find some slots, which are not playable in this form in any other Online Casino. The slots are also linked to a Betsson jackpot. The Swedes create themselves at this point a genuine however position characteristic.

The play portfolio includes otherwise the entire ban readiness of the Games, begun from the multi-line Slots over the video Poker automats up to the table and card plays. The network jackpots, especially Mega Fortune, Arabian Nights, Hall of Gods and Geisha Wonders, promise the highest chances of winning. In live casinos, luck can be challenged at Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Casino Holdem and Three Card Poker.


The Betsson Poker Arena is connected to the Microgaming network. Almost around the clock the tables are occupied with several thousand players. The correct opponent might always be to be found with Betsson. The Gaming can take place in the Download and in the Browserversion. Positive are the numerous satellite tournaments, which are the ticket for top-class offline events.

Not to be forgotten at this point is the Betsson poker team, which represents the provider at numerous tournaments. The squad is led by John Arne Riise, the former football professional of FC Liverpool and AS Rom.

Bonus for new customers – cash money dust off

The entrance with Betsson is of course rewarded and this not too scarce. Also at this point it shows up that the Swedes are light years away from fraud or rip-off. The bonus offers are throughout fair and respectably arranged.

Deposit and payout – so it goes

The transfer portfolio is extensive and should have for each player type the appropriate deposit method ready. Unfortunately, not all payment methods at Betsson are free of charge. Customers, who use the credit cards of Visa and MasterCard, the virtual Entropay Card and the payment system fundsend, must take into account an expense rate of 2.5 percent.

For smaller deposits the prepaid codes of the Paysafecard and Ukash are suitable. With Sofortü, bank transfers can be pushed to real-time levels. Skrill by Moneybookers, Neteller and EcoPayz are available as e-wallets.

Payouts are made quickly and reliably. Users have the choice between all technically possible payment methods, which have already been used in advance for a deposit. Generally open is the bank transfer.

Security and regulation – tradition, license, stock exchange

The most important deposit of Betsson we already mentioned at the beginning – the tradition. But also the other quality marks can be seen. Betsson AB is a company listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange. The gambling holding is not only in the focus of the public, but at the same time under the strict control of the Swedish financial supervision.

For the operational daily business the BML Group Limited in Malta is responsible. The company has an EU licence from the supervisory authorities of the Mediterranean state and is also responsible for other Swedish sports betting and casino platforms on the Internet.

Betsson was awarded the EGR Awards as “Online Sports Betting Provider of the Year” and as “Casino Provider of the Year” in London in 2012.

In the sponsorship sector, the betting provider decided on a top partnership, which functions in the form of a joint venture. Betsson is the official co-operation label for sport bets of the FC Arsenal London./p?

The Betsson group also includes the bookmakers Betsafe and Nordicbet.

Support and customer service – very close to the side of the users

The Betsson customer support deserves a very good mark in the test. The team of employees is not only able to convince professionally, but at the same time works with the fastest reaction times in the industry. Customers who make their enquiries via live chat receive the desired answer within 30 seconds. If you describe your problem via email, you have to allow for a maximum processing time of one hour. Of course, these deadlines only apply during regular opening hours. The German-speaking customer service is available from Monday to Friday between 10 and 23 o’clock. On weekends the coworkers are between 12 and 21 o’clock at the place.

The accessibility is completely free of charge given, even by telephone. Betsson has a German 0800-Hotline.

User friendliness of the web page – not everything is ideal

In view of the web page the specialized opinions go a little apart. The functionality of the homepage is given in each case. Even beginners will navigate themselves problem-free by the offer. The loading times of the web page do not show up however necessarily as ideal. Every now and then there are smaller waiting times.

The design is kept very “simple” with Betsson. The Swedes rely on all bright colours, which definitely make the overview easier. The programmers didn’t create a graphical marvel, but they did create an appealing betting portal.


Mobile, the northern Europeans are optimally positioned. The sports betting program is completely available for smartphones and tablets. The Casinoangebot is likewise likewise already to the majority for on the way optimized. Technically Betsson sets in the first place on a HTML5 version of the homepage, speak on a Web App. Thus a Download of a mobile App is not necessary. The users can start directly after browser selection. The technical adaptations to the respective end device are made automatically. Additionally Betsson makes still classical Download Apps for iOS and Android devices available, over which the Pokerarena cannot be called however.

Fazit: Betsson – Scandinavian cool, but correctly well

The first impression of Betsson is a little Scandinavian cool. However, if you take a closer look at the offer on the homepage, you will immediately see that you are dealing with a heavyweight of the industry. The focus applies primarily to the sport bets, but also the Casino and the Pokerarena are very, very responding. The service range is to be emphasized positively with north Europeans. The support team works on a Top level.

The Wettfans profit from the tax exemption with at the same time very good quotations. This fair offer alone shows that Betsson is acting seriously. We can completely exclude rip-off or even fraud in the test. Only the “unnecessary” deposit fees with the credit cards are worth considering.


Betsson pleases me so well, because it supplies me a value, which most other bet offerers do not offer. The betting exchange, which is not available at bwin and other larger providers, is convincing. If I can compete directly against other sports bets, it’s twice as much fun. Furthermore, the odds are sometimes very high, especially when inexperienced players appear on the scene and think that an event will occur with 100% certainty, they are willing to bet really high sums. For me this results in extremely high winnings, which otherwise cannot be met by the odds. Even if the odds, I have to say, are generally comparatively high and really lucrative.

The total Betsson offer is convincing. I am impressed with the way the provider completely adapts to the wishes and needs of its customers. Therefore I will remain there in any case customer! Tip: Betsson is particularly suitable for live betting. The high ratios in this range are partly clearly (!!!) higher than with many other offerers, so that I can close there in the comparison to other offerers positively. Every now and then it is also possible to make a safe bet in connection with another sports betting provider due to the high odds. So simply bet on an event and with another provider on the exact opposite. With the necessary capital it is then possible to actually make a safe profit. That applies however only to live bets and can completely simply go.

Disadvantages of Betsson for me are the disproportionately high fees for deposits. At the same time a minimum deposit of 20 Euro must be made. For most sports weather this is not much, for me, who only bets once in a while, but it’s already my maximum monthly stake. Also the payout amounts are very high. Advantages: It’s worth taking a little more money into your hands. Betting exchange, live bets and high odds are good reasons for me to stay with the sports betting provider of my choice and recommend it.
