When it comes to new betting platforms, it doesn’t get much newer than Betiton. Opened in 2020, we’ve seen lots of people asking whether or not they deserve a chance. We’re big supporters of new betting websites as long as they’re good enough to compete with the bigger names, and this is why we decided to create a review today. Is Betiton worth your attention? There’s only one way to find out!
Registration and Welcome Bonus
First things first, every betting site offers a bonus to new members, and Betiton is no different. After creating your account, you need to make a bet of £15 and you’ll then receive a free bet of £10 in return. As long as the qualifying bet has odds of 1/1 or above, and the bet is made within the first two weeks of the account being opened, the free £10 bet should make its way to your account in no time. You can only use this bet on selections of at least 4/5, but this shouldn’t be a problem for most bettors.
Unfortunately, there is some bad news because deposits through PayPal, Skrill, and Neteller are not eligible for the welcome bonus. With other bonuses, there are various terms and conditions to which you need to pay attention. In our experience, Betiton run a number of different promotions throughout the year so it’s worth keeping up with the promo codes and offers. Generally speaking, you’ll have two weeks to use any free bets and rewards before they leave your account.
If you want to join, the process is fairly standard compared to other services in the industry. Click the ‘Join’ button at the top and you’ll enter the first step of registration which involves entering your email address and choosing a password and username. After clicking ‘Next’, you’ll go through the usual of providing personal details and verifying your identity. Although this can seem frustrating when all you want to do is put on an outrageous 15-team accumulator, it’s a necessary step for security and safety.
In terms of markets, we found 22 sports. This might seem low, but Betiton has one thing going for it that other new services don’t have – horse and greyhound racing. There is no ‘best odds guaranteed’ feature, but there’s horse racing from the UK, Ireland, and even international events. Additionally, you’ll get to enjoy football, rugby, baseball, ice hockey, tennis, cricket, boxing, golf, snooker, darts, cycling, and lots more.
For the vast majority of bettors, we believe there are enough sports to stay entertained. For those who bet every day and want to have betting opportunities 24/7, you will find platforms with more sports.
What about the individual markets themselves? Well, football is the most dominant sport (but this is no surprise these days!). Even in the smaller leagues, there are dozens of markets to try whether you like to bet on corners, cards, BTTS, or over/under.
The Betiton website takes on a dull grey appearance, but we actually quite liked it. While some platforms will attack users with colour or just go with black, it’s an interesting choice from Betiton and one we think that many people will appreciate. The left-hand side lists the available sports, the middle shows markets and in-play betting, and the right-hand side holds the betting slip – in other words, it follows the lead of most betting websites before it.
If you’re a mobile player, the good news is that the website works perfectly on a browser. With the website optimised for Android and iOS devices, we can make bets on the go. For those who like to play on apps, this isn’t yet an option with Betiton. Who knows, if Betiton find success in the market and there’s demand for an app, they might just make this addition in the future. However, the website doesn’t require any downloads and you can manage your account on the website just as you would on a desktop.
It’s normal for betting websites to have several depositing methods, and Betiton is no different. Their long list includes Visa, MasterCard, Klarna, Bank Transfer, Trustly, Skrill (and 1-Tap), EcoPayz, PayPal, Neteller, GiroPay, and many others. All methods will see your funds enter the account instantly except for Interac which takes up to 24 hours. Withdrawals are available through fewer methods, but we still have choice with Skrill, Neteller, Visa, MasterCard, Bank Transfer, EcoPayz, Rapid Transfer, PayPal, and more.
These days, we don’t just place a bet and then forget about it. No, we follow the event closely and drive ourselves crazy wondering how much we’re going to win with our various bets on any given weekend. With this in mind, it’s nice to have some helpful features available. With Betiton, it starts with cash out, and this means we can take smaller winnings for peace of mind. Considering Nadal once won a set from 5-1 and 40-0 down, cash out is feature that comes in handy from time to time.
Accumulators are more popular than ever, and Betiton have clearly recognised this with their Boostiton offer. Essentially, you can boost the winnings of your accumulator – the percentage of the boost all depends on the number of selections in your bet. While four-fold accumulators have a 4% boost and five-folds are boosted by 7%, those brave enough to choose 15 selections can have their winnings boosted by a whopping 77%.
Elsewhere, we love the Fast Markets feature that allows us to bet instantly on live events. Particularly popular in football, the idea is that you bet on certain events to happen within the next one to five minutes. For example, you notice David Luiz getting frustrated and feel as though he’s going to get booked, you can put money on this very outcome. During the next one to five minutes, you can place money on penalties, goals, corners, free kicks, goal kicks, and throw ins.
We love this feature, and it even works with tennis. If you’re watching a match and you think the tide is turning after Federer has dominated Nadal for some time, you can bet on Nadal to win the next game. To get started, just choose the live match, select the Fast Market, choose your bet, and then enter the stake and place the bet. You’ll know within five minutes whether or not your bet is successful.
Some bettors like to have the security of 24/7 support, and this is something that Betiton cannot offer. This being said, they do have good opening hours and are available between 6am and 11pm. If you have any problems, you can contact the team at Betiton through the live chat on their website, via a phone number, and through email. Interestingly, many new services are relying solely on live chat and email, so it’s refreshing to see one offering a phone number for support too.
We know that not everybody likes to talk to companies when they have a problem, and this is where the FAQs page comes in. We found this page to be extensive and they cover questions from the following areas:
- Cashing Out
- Submitting Documentation
- Rewards Points Program
- General Information
With this, you should find answers to the most common questions without having to go through the process of actually contacting the company.
Some players like to stay loyal to one betting website, and Betiton reward these players with the so-called Real Money program. Once registered, making bets will earn Reward Points. As you start to accumulate these points, you get Bonus Money. Luckily, you earn these points just as quickly on mobile as on desktop. For some, the problem with this system will be the fact that it takes £40 to earn one single point.
Betiton has a responsibility to keep gamblers safe and provide the tools that bettors need to avoid and deal with addiction, and they take this responsibility seriously. The Responsible Gambling page on the website has a section for the protection of minors, preventing and managing compulsive gambling, restricting an account, and getting help. The restrictions include reality checks, deposit limits, self-exclusion, and time outs. If you need help, there are links at the bottom of the page to organisations such as Gambling Therapy Helpline and Gamblers Anonymous.
You might not choose Betiton for eSports and gaming betting, an extravagant welcome bonus, or 24/7 customer support. However, there are plenty of benefits of making Betiton your new favourite. There’s lots of banking methods, football markets are extensive, and we love the Fast Markets and accumulator boost features. In the time ahead, we believe that Betiton has the potential to grow in the market, and we think more and more bettors will end up choosing it – especially if apps are introduced!
