Social Betting is a niche market and British bookmaker BetBull are at the forefront of this innovative idea. They first appeared on the scene in 2015. They are looking to gain licenses and building market share through joint ventures, acquisitions and simply organic growth. Whilst they function in Britain and a number of other European countries they are based out of Malta. We are going to take a look at this bookmaker and consider the quality of their mobile application, markets ands odds, customer services and payments methods. For further information on this bookmaker please checkout our BetBull Free Bets Article and BetBull Casino Review.
BetBull are one of a number of bookmakers that function solely on the mobile front and they have apps for both iOS and Android users. Whilst they do have a desktop site which will allow you access to the relevant app stores but little else. The first thing you will notice when you download the app is the leaders board tab. This clearly shows who the most successful punters with BetBull are and it is from this that you can follow the bets of successful bettors. At times the App has a feel of a social tool as you can connect with other players with ease.
Across the top of the App you have the opportunity to see the most popular bets by the successful punters, my feed, recent winning bets, events starting soon, system bets, high return bets, safe return bets and access to basketball and tennis markets.
Across the bottom set of tabs you can see the leaderboard for the most successful punters over the last 7 days, 30 days and all time. You can then follow them just like you would on Twitter. These will then appear in your ‘My Feed’ section. The bottom tabs also allow you to access all the markets, my bets, the casino platform and the ‘Acca Lab’. The Acca Lab is a unique feature that allows you to swipe left or right to accept or decline bets for an Acca. If you are lucky you may also receive a chest as you are building your Acca that may enhance the price. This is a nice feature and provides you with some interesting bets and information.
Placing A Bet
Whilst the App has a feel of a social network it is also extremely easy to place a bet. This is due to the fact that the App is so well developed and fully optimised, heightening its responsiveness.Simply find the market you wish and select the odds of your selection, enter your stake amount and click ‘Bet Now’. Yours stake and potential returns are clearly displayed. It really could not be easier.
Markets & Odds
One of the biggest selling points of BetBull are the tremendous Odds offered by the bookmaker. Football odds are typically marked up at a margin of around 95% with Basketball at a tremendous 97% and Horse Racing between 91.6% and 94.7%. These margins are extremely good and make betting with BetBull and extremely attractive proposition.
With regards to markets available this is also respectable, particularly with popular events. High profile football matches such as those in the EPL regularly has in excess of 120+ markets and this depth of market is relatively inclusive across the range of sports that they offer. Those sports are Football, Basketball, Tennis, Cricket, Volleyball, American Football, Darts, Rugby Union, Golf, Aussie Rules, Rugby League, Ice Hockey, Bandy, Boxing, ESports, Formula 1, Futsal, Handball, MMA, Snooker and Table Tennis.
It is worth noting that whilst the markets are deep for football matches the range of fixtures is not as wide as some competitors.
At first site it may seem to customers that BetBull do not provide In-Play betting opportunities. This is far from through. You must make sure you slide the In-Play button found in the top right hand corner to access these markets. The only issue with the In-Play platform is when you go into a sporting event you are only provided with limited information. As an example if you enter a Live Tennis match you are only provided with the score in sets, not the score of a specific set in question.
Like most leading bookmakers the best way to contact BetBull is buy using the ‘Live Chat’ function that is easily found in the App. Alternatively you can also email them via [email protected].
Whilst it is disappointing that no direct contact number is displayed anywhere, responses to email and on the Live Chat platform have proven to be swift.
At this moment and time BetBull only accept payments by Visa, Mastercard, Skrill and Neteller. This is likely to increase over time as there is little doubt that BetBull are going to be a force to be reckoned with in the future.
BetBull are an extremely interesting and unique betting company and the social element is interesting. The ability to follow successful punters, build Accas in the lab, build points yourself and regularly receive odds boosts are all nice features. When you add to this the fact that the odds are cracking and the markets are vast you have a really good bookmaker to do business with.
