Big Bet World is new to the online bookmaking industry as it was only founded in 2014. The sportsbook’s parent company is M-Hub Gaming Operations Ltd which is based in Malta. The business is an international trading company working in accordance with Maltese law. The website offers a pre-game range of sports and markets and there is a live betting facility. One of the specific features of this operation is a loyalty bonus scheme for regular customers and a cash out option for accumulators with a large number of combinations. There is a comprehensive range of betting markets for the mainstream betting sports from simple two ways to system bets with several options.
The following sports are covered: football, tennis, basketball, motorsport, volleyball, American football, baseball, Aussie Rules, beach volley, boxing, cricket, rugby and snooker. Football accounts for more than half the betting events and tennis has the next most markets. Bets can be sorted by sport and country. There is a menu button for the most popular betting sports arranged as follows horizontally:
Football is organised by Top Bets and Upcoming Bets. The main menu for football has options for the current European and international tournaments. Within the football menu there are options for the country’s covered with Germany and England the most prominent. Leagues from more than 20 countries are included. Each match is displayed with date and kick of time, the home, draw and away options, a link to relevant statistics and each betting option. Most matches have at least 300 markets and some more than 500 in these categories: popular, handicaps, totals, 1st half, 2nd half, goals and specials, including correct scores and double result.
The tennis menu includes navigation bars for these tours: ATP, WTA and Challenger with markets for both men and women’s singles and doubles. Each match shows the projected start time, the player’s names and the two-way odds. There is a link to relevant statistics and the markets available for each match. There are up to 47 markets available organised by handicaps, totals, sets and special, including correct set score, first set correct score and odd or even number of games. At the time of writing the scheduled matches for the following day are also displayed and including the full range of markets.
At the time of the review there was a limited choice of basketball leagues but it was the close season for NBA and the major European leagues. There were only menu options for WNBA in the United States, international matches and the playoffs in Argentina. The date and starting time is shown for each match with a link to detailed statistics including the most recent meetings. Each match includes more than 100 markets split by main, handicaps, totals, 1st half, quarter and specials, including odd or even points, winning margins and highest scoring quarter.
The baseball navigation bar takes users to matches in the United States and Mexico. MLB is the professional baseball league in North America and is the most watched and lucrative in the world and generates huge betting interest. That is reflected in the odds on offer for each match. The home and away odds are displayed with the date and start time. There is a link to detailed statistics and more than 25 markets for each fixture. The betting markets are organised by main, handicaps, totals and special, including odd or even runs and winning margins.
Of all the main betting sports this is the least populated with leagues and markets. This sport is only played in Australia as the name implies so the Australian League is the only option on the menu. For each match the date and starting time is displayed with a link to some relevant statistics. Initially each match only features odds for the two way win market for the home and away team but other options are added on the day of the fixture.
A relatively new feature of the Big Bet World website is a menu option called Racebook which offers odds for trotting, greyhounds and horse racing in the United States and Canada. For each race all or some of the following details are available: box number, colours, weight, age, owner, rider and trainer. Odds are displayed on the right hand side of the screen.
Betting on these three disciplines is done in to a pool and these bets are displayed for each race: win, place, show, exacta, trifecta, superfecta, win/place/show, win/place, win/show and place/show. There is also a box for the stake unit in the range from 2 to 500 EUR. A race schedule shows the upcoming races including the track, race time and a logo to indicate whether it is horse racing, greyhounds or trotting.
There is a News section for each meeting which shows track and date, details for each race such as surface, distance and prize fund and a summary of the latest form for each competitor. A results section is updated during each meeting and shows the order of the first four horses and the win, place and show dividends to one unit.
In order to place a bet the menu on the right hand side of the main screen must be navigated to locate the relevant market. A search facility can make this procedure faster by entering the name of a team or player. Once the odds appear the selection is clicked and the option appears blue. At this stage the bets in the Bet Slip can be removed by clicking a ‘Clear all’ icon and the customer can begin the bet placement process again.
The Bet Slip is populated with the selections and the odds that apply at the time. The stake unit is entered and options for Combi and System bets can be selected. The total stake is automatically calculated and the potential winnings are shown. In some instances the odds might change so a customer can specify to continue with the bet at the amended odds or cancel the bet and begin again with other markets and odds.
Once all the details have been entered ‘PLACE BET’ is clicked and after confirmation the bet has been placed and the account balance is updated. Bets are settled promptly and funds are made available immediately for more bets or withdrawals. The whole procedure is efficient and delays are avoided so client goodwill is not lost in this area.
Compared to some other sportsbooks the live betting offer is limited and only includes matches for football and tennis. These are the most popular betting sports online including pre-match and in-running. There is no attempt to compete with other online bookmakers who offer a full range of sports for live betting.
The current live football matches are displayed on the left hand of the screen showing the teams, minutes played and the score. Within each live match there are about ten markets running concurrently which are updated as the match progresses.
In the left hand margin the set being played and current score is shown for each live tennis match. At the top of each tennis live match the name of each player and the flag of their countries are displayed. The score is updated to show points won in the current game and the latest score for games and sets.
This sportsbook provides a full and comprehensive betting service on all the most popular mobile devices. The mobile product mirrors the website service in providing all the pre-match and live betting options available on desktops. The company’s mobile service incorporates a decent visual identity feature that makes for speedy browsing and effective placement of bets. Any mobile device can be set up to allow quick access to a customer’s most viewed and bet on events. The mobile product is available in English, German, Serbian and Croatian.
The mobile betting options can be accessed quickly by scanning a Quick Response (QR) code but a code reader app is required in order to carry out this function. This is a barcode or machine-readable label that can be used to gain access to the betting services. The sportsbook and other services can also be found directly at mobile.bigbetworld.com. It is also possible to create a shortcut on a smart phone by bookmarking the mobile address to aid ease of use.
Football Jackpots is a recent addition to the website and allows customers to bet into a pool that offers big prizes for getting a number of correct scores right. The most common game is called Pick 3 Correct Score and the win pool is generally £5,000. The number of tickets that have been entered in the pool and the time before the first match starts is displayed. There are boxes for each of the most feasible scores and one for any other score. Match dates and kick-off times also appear on the screen in the local time zone.
The Big Bet World website includes a contact phone number and generic email address for questions and queries. Representatives are available throughout the day and night but there is no Live Chat. The Help facility is designed for all levels of betting experience and includes the following categories: Account, Payments, Odds Explained, Bet Slip, Bet Types, Promotions, Rules and Technical. Information can be found using a search field or navigating through the Help menu. The FAQ section has similar categories and more account options with links to the relevant areas of Help.
There are a number of payment options that have limits for different currencies. Most transactions are immediate including using Skrill e-wallet, Skrill gateway, Qpay gateway and Neteller e-wallet. Wire transfers directly from bank to bank take between 2 and 5 business days. After making a deposit a customer’s account balance will be updated on the same day that the funds are delivered and then funds can be used for betting.
Withdrawals go through during the business day but it still takes 2-5 days for the funds to reach the receiving bank account. Deposits with credit cards are instant but withdrawals can take up to seven working days. Requests for funds will only be processed with all the relevant documentation in place but generally this company do not charge transaction fees and the majority of transactions are immediate.
Big Bet World has security procedures in place to prevent anybody under the age of 18 opening an account, making deposits and placing bets. The company asks for proof of age documents to ensure that any potential new customer is old enough to wager and is over the age of consent. If bets that have been placed are discovered to have been made by players under the age of 18 they can cancel any winnings and pass on the balance to the authorities that regulate such matters.
This bookmaker also accepts some responsibility in the area of problem gambling and issues guidelines to prevent or limit the effects of excessive gambling. This advice includes what should be avoided in terms of financial and time limits. Customer information is protected so that players can feel secure when betting online. The company has made a commitment to keep personal data private and secure.
Big Bet World has an affiliate program and highlights these features as benefits:
Deals can be customised to individual requirements or standard. The three standard options are 30% of revenue share for life, CPA arrangements for up to 100 EUR per player and a mixture of the two. Commissions are paid at the end of each month using popular payment methods or by wire transfers and bank draft. Representatives can be contacted to discuss deal suggestions and specific needs. The process to open an affiliate account is easy and quick and each affiliate is assigned a client manager.
Big Bet World has all the features of a traditional online bookmaker but very little in the sportsbook to make the company stand out. The range of sports both for pre-match and live betting is limited compared to other sportsbooks that offer more than 30 sports. The company has an edge in terms of their promotions especially Big Bet World bonus points which are in effect a loyalty scheme. The link with the Colossus football bet is also an outstanding feature. The Racebook could include many more international meetings especially in Europe. The affiliate scheme is nothing out of the ordinary and none of its features are unique. As a new entry to the market it’s difficult to see how Big Bet World can establish some market share in a competitive and crowded sector.
