Who are they?

A leading European bookmaker, Favbet have been on the scene since 1999 and claims to currently have over 250,000 active customers. Licensed in Curacao and also with a considerable retail outlet presence in Eastern Europe, this is a provider that has established a loyal following with its solid yet conservative approach to the sports betting market.

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

Why should I bet with this bookmaker?

Longevity speaks volumes in this business and quite simply Favbet could not have survived and thrived for so long without providing something which attracts customers. It’s commitment to Eastern European players and their preferences, and reliability in doing so has no doubt contributed to the sportsbook’s success, and the odds offered on most sports are competitive if not market-leading. Football is the major focus and there is an impressive number of markets available here, and the support functions add up to a professional and trustworthy service.

Why shouldn’t I bet with this bookmaker?

The book simply does not possess the attractions of many other operations, be it in the generosity of the bonuses on offer (there is currently no sign-up bonus, for example), the special features available or the prices offered. There is certainly nothing bad here, but then again, there is also nothing ground-breaking either.

Other noteworthy specials

The Favbet Club loyalty program offers customers the opportunity to earn a number of rewards though consistent patronage. These rewards include bonus points which can be exchanged for gifts (advertised in the site shop – www.favbet.com/en/shop/catalog/category/9/), losing refunds up to 10% and multiples of the day which offer the possibility of earning up to 5% more.

Similarly, for all customers there is a ‘multiple of the day’ option each day which allows players to earn up to 10% more on bets consisting of 3-5 selections on pre-determined events.

Sports and markets available

23 sports are listed, and include such niche delights as sumo, futsal and chess. In addition there are special markets offered on events including the Eurovision Song Contest and Game of Thrones, as well as politics and cybersports.

The number and variety of markets offered on the biggest football matches is impressive (for example, more than 200 were available for recent Champions League games), although the range and scope can dwindle for smaller leagues. The markets offered on other iconic sports such as basketball and tennis (popular among this book’s demographic) are as impressive as any sportsbook of a comparable size. The in-play betting markets are equally as impressive, although sadly no cash out-function is currently offered.

Special features

The statistics service offered here, courtesy of betradar, is useful in that you can find information about team and player form, as well as betting-focused stats in the shape of frequency of over/unders and so on. The live score and results service are similarly effective in providing a fuller sports interest experience, and Favbet TV offers an impressively comprehensive live-streaming service as long as your betting account possesses a minimum of €10, or you have placed a minimum bet of €1 in the last 48 hours. There is also a bet calculator and live event calendar.

 

Support Functions

24-hour live chat and the usual phone and email services are complemented by a number of available languages through which to view the site, including German, Greek, Spanish, Ukrainian, Russian, Croatian and more.

A nice little touch is the search tab on the homepage which allows customers to go quickly to any event, team or player of their choice. Why more bookies don’t offer this feature is a mystery.

Payment Options

There’s a comprehensive offering of payment options here, including credit and debit cards (commission of 1.5% is charged on 24-hour withdrawals) and a host of e-wallets including Skrill, Neteller, Webmony, Moneta.ru, Wallet One, and many more. Unsurprisingly there are considerably more ways to deposit than withdraw.

Verdict

3/5 – A middling ranking for a middling sportsbook which fails to deliver anything eye-catching but would undoubtedly be a good option in the countries for which it is primarily intended (mostly those in Eastern Europe). This is a solid yet unspectacular bookmaker, worth a look at from time to time, but one lacking in any real reason to stay.
