Mobilebet aren’t exactly being subtle about what market they’re trying to get into. The company’s name tells you everything you need to know, with betting on sporting events whilst you’re on the go being the order of the day. It’s part of the same family as ComeOn, so if you’ve used that site in the past then you might well recognise a few of the standout features on offer here. Of course the two companies approach things from entirely different directions, so even if you have been a ComeOn customer in the past it will still be worth your while to check out what Mobilebet can offer.
They are very much one of the new breed of bookmakers that has sprung up and developed with the advent of betting online, founded as it was back in 2014. These plucky little upstarts are doing their level best to compete with the big-boys in the industry and they are doing that by trying to offer something different. Rather than being the ‘Jack-of-all-trades’, Mobilebet has created a niche for itself and they’re trying their darnedest to win you over accordingly.
Sports Betting at Mobilebet
As I mentioned before, Mobilebet is, as its name suggests, a site aimed more at mobile customers than anything else. You’d be forgiven, therefore, for imagining that the desktop site would be found wanting. You might be forgiven, but you wouldn’t be correct. The Mobilebet site is actually just as good as many of the company’s competitor’s offerings, with a black, white and green colour scheme that is nice and crisp. Personally, I’m not a big fan of a ‘busy’ homepage, so in that respect I have to admit that I’m a little disappointed with how much stuff Mobilebet are trying to cram on to the main page of their sportsbook.
As well as the standard Popular Events and list of sports that the have on the lefthand side of the page, Mobilebet have also put a list of their latest casino games underneath your betting slip and general offers over on the righthand side. In the middle of the page you’ll find their Most Popular bets, In-Play events and Last Minute Bets that they think you might be interested in. It’s all a little too much for me, though you might well appreciate everything you might be interested in all being in the same place. I also find it slightly annoying that when you click on a sport it doesn’t just take you straight to their coverage, instead presenting you with additional options. Still, it loads incredibly quickly when you do find what you’re looking for.
As I mentioned a moment ago, Mobilebet have gone big on their In-Play offering. That’s not hugely surprising, of course, when you consider that that’s exactly what most people ‘on the go’ are going to want to bet on. You’ll find links to their In-Play section all over the place, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing; I must admit to being very impressed with how the live events are covered. A feature that often goes hand-in-hand with In-Play betting is the ability to Cash Out your bet, which is present and correct here. In fact, the only major feature that you won’t find is Live Streaming, but I wouldn’t say that that’s a major loss.
What to Bet On
In terms of what sports and events you can bet on with Mobilebet, I’d be surprised if you’re disappointed by their offering. Their football coverage is about as extensive as you’ll find anywhere, including the ability to bet on the likes of the Under-21 league in Russia, with tennis, horse racing and other markets popular with a UK crowd also covered. You won’t find greyhound racing on the list, though you can bet on virtual greyhounds if you’d like to. Speaking of virtual things, they offer a decent range of e-sports to bet on, such as Counter-Strike and Rocket League.
I would suggest that the vast majority of ‘new’ style bookmakers are attached to online casinos and Mobilebet are no exception. They don’t offer the likes of poker, bingo or lotteries, but if you’re a fan of either an online casino, where you can play computerised versions of blackjack, roulette and so on, or live casinos then you’re in luck. The live casino is where you’ll want to head if you want see real life human beings dealing the cards and so on.
Banking & Limits
There are plenty of decent methods available to you to deposit money into your account, not least of which are debit and credit card options. There are also a lot of the most popular e-wallets, such as NETeller, Skrill and the paysafecard. Randomly the minimum amount you need to pay in is £9, with a maximum ranging from £80 to £8000. When it comes to withdrawals it’s worth noting that you can make four free ones every month, after which you’ll be charged £4 a pop.
Who Are Mobilebet?
The better question, I think, is actually ‘Who are Co-Gaming Limited’? That is the name of the parent company to both Mobilebet and ComeOn. They’re based in Malta and have UK Gambling Commission licences for both of the companies that come under their umbrella. They might be on the smaller side when its comes to online gaming companies, but they’ve been in existence since 2010 so they’re exactly small time. That said, I haven’t got a lot else I can tell you about them other than the fact that their licence makes them a more than trustable enterprise.
