Who are they?

Bettson is a Swedish company which, under the subsidiary Betsson Malta Ltd, operates an online award-winning sportsbook and accompanying gaming products.

Affiliate brands include Nordicbet and Betsafe.

New Customers Only. 18+. T&Cs Apply. Wagering Requirements Apply.

Why should I bet with this bookmaker?

The sportsbook is undeniably strong in the Scandinavian markets where often among the best odds in the business can be found, and Scandinavian favourites such as football and hockey are priority events with excellent market options. The book also prides itself in having the fastest withdrawal times in the business, and while this review cannot verify this as fact, it can confirm that the speed in which withdrawals can be made is certainly impressive, and varies depending on your withdrawal method.. There is live streaming available, and a decent number of special features in the form of stats to accompany every event and a blog featuring news, previews, reviews and betting tips.

Why shouldn’t I bet with this bookmaker?

This sportsbook does not operate in the UK or Ireland, and so the welcome offer is only available to residents of Australia, New Zealand and Canada. If this does not limit your interest, then the number of markets offered can be bettered elsewhere, but wagering with Betsson can be an otherwise pleasurable betting experience in what is a safe, efficient and well-managed platform.

Current Sign-up bonus

A 100% matching bonus on initial deposits up to €25 (residents of Australia, New Zealand and Canada only).

How to activate the sign-up bonus

  1. Open a customer account
  2. Make a deposit of any amount.
  3. Find the deposit matched up to €25 by checking the ‘Active/Available Bonuses’ section in your account. No code required.

Other noteworthy specials

Clicking on the ‘promotions’ tab on the top left of the landing page reveals the following options currently available;

A €5 risk-free live bet every weekend until May to be used on in-play markets in the Premier League, La Liga and more, simply by betting €10 in the week leading up to it.

Other than that there is a Champions League quiz to win tickets and a Fantasy League game with a top price of €1000, plus monthly rewards.

Sports and markets available

32 sports (some as diverse as bandy and floorball) along with extras including virtual and e-sports, music, politics and entertainment markets. Furthermore, within the bigger sports the book also offers bets on player/team awards and even season bets. Delving deeper into the most popular markets there are a lot of options available on the popular sports such as football and hockey, which is a huge sport in Scandinavia, but they do not rival the biggest books in this regard. There’s no horse racing unfortunately but can be explained by the fact there is more of a European focus to this book. The in-play markets are similarly impressive but the platform loses points for not having Asian Handicap markets available and not having a cash out option on in-play bets. Finally, there is a ‘Daily Specials’ tab on the landing page which takes you directly to some specialised bets of the day.

Special features

The search feature on the landing page is a nice tool as it allows you to simply type in the event you are looking for, rather than having to work to find it. Every event has a dedicated statistics section which is handy before placing a wager. There is an accompanying blog which has news, previews and so on, mostly for football and hockey which are certainly the two signature sports here. There is also a Fantasy Football game and regular quiz competitions offering live event tickets which is a nice touch.

Support Functions

All the usual options of live chat, phone and email, as well as an FAQ section – customer-service.betsson.com/en/

The platform is available in a host of European languages too.

Payment Options

Bank Transfer, Visa, Mastercard/Maestro, Neteller, Moneybookers (Skrill), PaySafe card, ecoPayz Trustly and Entropay.

Verdict

3.5/5 – Giving this sportsbook a score is difficult in regard to the fact that it depends where you are situated. Obviously there is no access from the UK and Ireland, and undoubtedly for bettors from Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland in particular, this is a great site with a lot of relevant options. The platform is professional and the support and payment functions more than adequate, but the promotions and special features don’t stack up to what can be found on offer elsewhere.
