Our 2018 Review of the NetBet.com Sportsbook, Casino & Poker Room

Want to learn about NetBet.com?

Well, you might want to grab a beverage. Because this review is a bit longer than usual – it clocks in at 5,000+ words.

Each word is necessary, though. Because collectively it provides you with all the details you need to know about their sportsbook, casino and poker. Our review also tells you about their banking options, promotions and company history.

The history section is arguably the most important.

Because while there are several things I liked about NetBet.com – namely the casino – their history put a huge damper on things.

So much so that I had to question whether their positives were enough to outweigh their negatives. I had to find out if I could recommend NetBet.com to our readers, despite all the things I like about them.

Keep reading to find out what I decided.

Who owns and operates NetBet? How long have they been in business?

NetBet is owned and operated by NetBet Enterprises Limited. This is according to their website, which I point out because some reviews say they’re owned and operated by Mandaplay Limited and Cosmo Gaming Company Limited Casinos.

They used to be known as Casino770. But in July 2013 they decided to rebrand. I’m not entirely sure of why, but I get the impression it was because of all the negative press they earned – namely in the Google search results. This made it difficult for them to turn things around.

That said, after looking through a few forum posts and reviews, I get the feeling they weren’t successful in shaking their past.

Though, it doesn’t help that they continue to make many of the same mistakes they were once known for, either.

How’s their reputation? What do others think of them?

Below average.

Considering they’ve been around since 2001, I wasn’t expecting them to have a squeaky-clean background. Every business has complaints.

But I was shocked when I saw that NetBet has 145+ complaints on AskGamblers.com. That’s the most complaints I’ve seen for any casino on AG.com. The complaints revolve around slow payouts to rogue-like terms and conditions.

So, I started to search review sites and forums to see if these complaints were in any valid. And I came to this conclusion – those complaints are there for a reason.

In fact, NetBet.com managed to be rogued twice at Casinomeister.com. Then they went through probation twice. Now they’re in the ‘grey zone.’

They’re in the ‘needs work’ status at ThePogg.com. NetBet has told ThePogg.com that they want to work with them on player issues. So far that looks to be true, as NetBet has the highest trust rating ThePogg.com will give to a site like theirs.

In 2015, SportsbookReview.com (SBR) downgraded NetBet from a C- to a D+. That hasn’t changed since.

The bottom line – NetBet.com has had a shaky past, and these sites still feel they’re somewhat shaky today. You won’t find a legit review site or forum who doesn’t think so.

The biggest problem is that NetBet hasn’t corrected many of these problems. For example, payments can take a few weeks to PROCESS. That’s how long it takes their staff to do their thing before making the transfer to your bank.

Which explains why most of the complaints on NetBet.com revolved around delayed payments, or refusal to pay, amongst other things.

The good news is, is that while they have 140+ complaints on AG.com, most have been resolved to everyone’s satisfaction. I didn’t count or check them all out, but I’d estimate that more than 90% were given the smiley face from AG.

That’s got to count for something. Though it’s debatable how much that’s worth since they continue to have these problems.

Anyway, I get the impression that NetBet.com pays and aren’t up to anything sinister. They’re just below average in areas that they shouldn’t be.

This had made a HUGE difference in my final recommendation, which I’ll share later on. For now, though, if you want the specifics behind NetBet’s best, you can find that information at the following websites:

  • AskGambler.com Complaints
  • SportsbookReview.com Review
  • Casinomeister.com Forum Thread

Important!
The max you can cash out each month is $100,000. It may be possible to do more, but you’ll need to contact customer support first.

The processing times are a bit ridiculous. It shouldn’t take more than 24-48 hours – any longer than a weekend – to process payments. Because on top of that you still have anywhere from 1-5 or so days for most payments to reach and clear your bank.

But 2 weeks to process a bank wire? That’s stupid.

Some people feel as if this is one tactic (of many) NetBet uses to try to get players to cancel their cash outs and start playing again – in hopes they lose it all back to the casino.

I don’t know if that’s true.

But what I am confident of is that they would improve their image and brand tenfold if they could reduce how long it took to process and ship payments.

I bet it’d cut their complaints in half.

NetBet.com offers several promotions for each of their sportsbook, casino and poker products. As such, we’ve split up their promotions and the details for each accordingly.

You’ll find all the details below.

Sports Promotions

  • Welcome Bonus – Get a 50% match bonus up to $50. Deposit $100 to claim the entire amount.  You’ll need to bet this 1x on odds of 1.60 or higher to fulfill the playthrough requirements.
  • Combo Boost – Bet on a 3-fold or more on football, tennis, basketball, hockey or baseball matches at 1/5 or above, and you can receive a boost on your wins of up to 50%. The more you bet on, the higher your boost potential.
  • Free Mobile Bet – Make a minimum bet of $10 on odds of 1.60 or higher from your mobile device. Once the bet is settled you’ll receive your free bet within 24 hours. This only applies to your first mobile sports bet.

That’s it for their evergreen offers.

They do have a few limited time deals, though. For example, they’re giving away a car this December. NetBet.com also had a leaderboard type offer, and a soccer bracket offer with a huge jackpot.

You can see all of their sports betting promotions on their site under promotions.

Casino Promotions

  • Welcome Bonus – Make a deposit and receive a 100% match bonus up to $200. This has a 30x playthrough.

  • Invite Your Friends – Send friends to NetBet Poker and receive a $50 bonus once your friend make a $50 deposit and accumulates 600 points.

The rest of the poker ‘promotions’ are more or less freerolls, tournaments and other types of games. We’ll cover those in the poker section below.

Do they have a comps and/or VIP program?

It looks like they do, and it’s not the same across the board for each of their products.

Here are the details:

  • NetBet VIP Club – This program is for their sports bettors. This sounds like a club for more frequent and/or higher spenders, as their perks – which includes trips to sporting events, expedited cash outs, higher betting limits, etc. – sound a little too fancy for public access. You also need to contact them to apply IF you think you have what it takes.
  • Players Club – This is for their casino. It looks as if it’s open to everyone.

The idea behind this is pretty straightforward – you’ll receive NetPoints for playing real money games. You’ll receive anywhere from 3 to 10 points for every $1 you spend.

The points you earn will determine your VIP status, of which there are 7.

Those include:

  • Bronze
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Diamond
  • Platinum
  • Stellar
  • Elite

As you move up you’ll receive a points boost and longer durations at each level.

You can also use your points to buy bonuses, cash and tickets/entries into their prize drawings.

  • Poker VIP Club – This is for poker players. This uses the same idea as the casino – you earn NetPoints for playing real money hands. Those points will determine your VIP status, as well as give you buying power in their store.

There are 5 tiers to this program:

  • Bronze
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Platinum
  • Diamond

The higher up you go, the larger the NetPoints boost you’ll receive. Moving up will also unlock bonuses, and give you VIP Shop and freeroll access. Hit Diamond status to have unlimited access to their shop and freerolls.

What sports and markets can you bet on? What types of bets do they accept?

You’ll find all the sports they cover in the sidebar on the left.

The sports you can bet on include:

  • Soccer
  • Tennis
  • Basketball
  • Ice hockey
  • Baseball
  • American football
  • Aussie rules
  • Badminton
  • Boxing
  • Chess
  • Cricket
  • Cycling
  • Darts
  • esports
  • Gaelic football
  • Golf
  • Handball
  • Horse racing
  • MMA
  • Motor racing
  • Rugby league
  • Rugby union
  • Snooker & pool
  • Specials
  • Speedway
  • Surfing
  • Trotting
  • Virtual sports
  • Volleyball
  • Winter sports

That’s just the top-level stuff, too. When you click on one of those options, there will be a drop-down menu which will give you additional sub-sports or events to bet on.

Most of the options I saw were countries. For example, under esports my options were China, Korea, Taiwan and International. Under motor racing my options were Belgium and International. And so on.

They have lots of different types of bets you can make, too. These depend on the sport or event, of course. Just click on the Bet Types tab at the top to see what your options are.

Some of the options I found include:

  • Winner
  • Constructors
  • Podium position
  • Fastest lap
  • Specials
  • Outright
  • Finalists
  • Top finish
  • 1×2 full time
  • Total team goals
  • Teams clean sheet
  • Number of goals
  • OU 2nd half
  • Teams to score in 2nd half
  • Players
  • To win to nil
  • To win from behind
  • First corner
  • Last corner
  • First to score

And so on.

Experts say their odds are reasonable – right around 105-106%. This puts them ahead of sportsbooks like Betway, and on par with books like Paddy Power, Sky Bet and Ladbrokes. They’re not as good as BetVictor, Bet365 or Matchbook.

They have a partial cash out option that looks neat, too. You can use this to reduce your losses or secure some profit, when you otherwise didn’t think you’d make any.

Do they offer esports?

They do.

When I was there they were covering CS:GO, League of Legends, Starcraft II, Dota 2 and Warcraft 3 matches.

The bet types included: O/U full time, outright, spread full time, winner full time, winner and finalists. This probably varies based on the game and match, but my first impression is they have fewer betting options compared to other more well-known (international) sportsbooks.

It doesn’t look like they offer live esports coverage, either. At least they didn’t have any running live or scheduled while I was there.

I’d say their esports coverage and options are average, and definitely not worth signing up for all by itself.

Do they offer live (in-play) betting? Do they stream matches?

They do.

The bulk of what they cover – from what I could see – are tennis and soccer matches. I get the impression basketball is covered, too, but the NBA was in the off season while I reviewed them.

Unfortunately, they don’t offer live streaming.

What are their betting limits?

According to their Sports FAQ:

The minimum stake for pre-live bets is €0.07 (or currency equivalent) and €0.13 for live bets (or currency equivalent). There is no set maximum stake. If you are refused a bet you will be offered an alternative amount.

Do they limit winners?

I didn’t read anything that suggests they do. And the only thing I found regarding arbitrage revolved around their currency exchange services – arbitraging this service for gains is prohibited, and any gains will be confiscated without notice.

How do you access their sportsbook?

You can access their sportsbook through your browser. You don’t need to download anything.

They have a mobile app, too, for Android and Amazon users. Everyone else can access their sportsbook by going to their mobile site (m.netbet.com).

What software providers do they work with? What kinds of games can you play?

They work with several software companies.

For example:

  • Microgaming
  • NetEnt
  • Evolution Gaming
  • Bally
  • IGT (WagerWorks)
  • WMS (Williams Interactive)
  • NextGen Gaming
  • iSoftBet
  • PariPlay
  • Novomatic
  • Leander Games
  • Amaya (Chartwell)
  • Quickspin
  • Playson
  • Euro Games Technology
  • GameArt
  • High5Games
  • Booming Games
  • Ainsworth Gaming Technology
  • Pragmatic Play

They cover the full spectrum of games here. You can choose from a large variety of slots, table games, card games, video poker, lotto and live dealer games.

That said, some games may not be available to you because of where you live. Because they say in their terms that some software providers and their games aren’t available to players in specific jurisdictions.

That’s something you’ll want to keep in mind when you go over our list of example games below.

What devices is their casino compatible with? Are they mobile compatible?

It looks like they offer an instant play casino you can access from your browser. You can also go to NetBet.com from your tablet or phone and they’ll redirect you to their mobile friendly casino.

Other reviews say they have a download, but I didn’t see it. There’s nothing about it in their FAQ’s, either.

What are some examples of games you can play?

There are 3 different casinos here, not including their lotto section. We’re going to list some examples from each section below and provide commentary on the things that stand out.

  • As Seen On TV
  • Classic Casino
  • Play Vegas Style

There’s lots to choose from here.

Specialty GamesCasino Roulette

  • European Roulette
  • European Roulette: Small Bets
  • Roulette 3D
  • Automatic French Roulette
  • Around the World

Another great selection of games. There are lots of different games, as well as multi-hand variants. I can’t think of anything offhand to complain about.

Card GamesCasino Card Games

  • Casino Hold’em Poker
  • Casino War
  • Multi-Hand Blackjack

Tons of games here, too. And – don’t forget – we still have the live casino and Vegas style casino to cover, too.

That wraps up their main casino. Now let’s look at the games you can play in their live casino.

Blackjack GamesLive Casino

  • Immersive Roulette
  • Blackjack
  • Baccarat
  • Extreme Blackjack
  • Extreme Roulette
  • French Roulette
  • Automatic Roulette with La Partage
  • Automatic Roulette
  • Multiplayer Blackjack
  • Common Draw Blackjack
  • Extreme Baccarat
  • Three Card Poker
  • Casino Hold’em
  • Caribbean Stud

They have several more games than what’s listed here. The biggest (and often only) difference is who the software provider is.

Something else I noticed is how well everything was organized here. It’s easy to find the games you want to play.

Vegas Arcade & Casino

Here are some of the games you’ll find in the Vegas section of their casino.

SlotsSlots

  • Age of The Gods
  • 8 Ball Slots
  • A Night Out
  • Alien Hunter
  • Amazon Wild
  • Bai Shi
  • Archer
  • Cash Blox
  • Cat Queen
  • Catwalk
  • Cinerama
  • Diamond Valley
  • Easter Surprise
  • Firemen
  • Deal or No Deal
  • Funky Fruits
  • Gladiator
  • Goblin’s Cave
  • Golden Games
  • Haunted House
  • Hot Gems
  • Ice Hockey
  • King Kong
  • Little Britain
  • Marilyn Monroe
  • Rocky

What I noticed here more than anything is how little overlap there is with their main casino. At least I didn’t see many duplicates. That’s pretty impressive.

Card GamesCard & Dice

  • Double Attack Blackjack
  • Sic Bo
  • Pontoon
  • Blackjack Surrender
  • Blackjack Switch
  • Blackjack UK
  • Craps
  • Blackjack Mini
  • 3-Card Brag
  • 21 Duel Blackjack
  • Perfect Blackjack

Once again, I don’t see a ton of duplicates. And there are several games here I didn’t see in the main casinos table/card game section, which means more variety overall. You can’t complain about that.

Specialty GamesRoulette

  • French Roulette
  • Video Roulette
  • Club Roulette
  • 3D Roulette Premium
  • Roulette Pro
  • French Roulette
  • European Roulette
  • New AR Roulette

There were a few more duplicates here. But that’s not totally surprising since there are only so many roulette variants out there.

That said, there were several roulette games I didn’t see in the main casino.

Overall Thoughts

They have a ton of games, right? And, keep in mind, we only listed a small fraction of what they have overall – a small fraction of their 500+ games. And that’s only the games we were able to see, too. If you live in a jurisdiction where things aren’t as restrictive, you’ll have even more software providers and games to choose from. The thing I was impressed with most is how little overlap there was between the main casino and Vegas casino. I’m sure they have duplicates, but I didn’t see many. Overall, they did a solid job with the casino.

Video PokerPoker

NetBet’s poker room uses iPoker software. This puts them on the iPoker Network.

There are both pros and cons to this. The biggest downside is probably their traffic.

According to Poker Scout they’re 9th in total worldwide traffic with 1,282 players online. I’m not sure how accurate these stats are, as NetBet says they have 2,043 players online.

Whatever the case, this pales in comparison to 100,000+ players currently at PokerStars. This should give you an idea of how busy NetBet is, and the type of volume (hands or tournaments) you’ll be able to get.

With that in mind, let’s look at all the different poker games, stakes and tournaments you can play here.

What poker games and stakes do they offer?

You can play either holdem, stud or omaha. The stakes range from €.01/€.02 through €5/€10. Experts say most of the action revolves around their 6-max tables.

They offer a couple of interesting variants, too.

For example, one variant is their SixPlus Hold’em. What’s interesting about this is that the deck is reduced from 52 to 36 cards. This in effect changes the hand rankings to the following:

  • Royal Flush
  • Straight Flush
  • Four of a kind
  • Flush
  • Full House
  • Three of a kind
  • Straight
  • Two Pair
  • One Pair
  • High Card

This is the only network I know of that offers this poker variant.

NetBet.com also has Speed Poker, which is their fast-fold variation. With this variant, you no longer have to wait until it’s your turn to fold your hand. You can fold whenever you want, and once you do you can then join another table instantly where you’ll play a new hand against a new batch of players from the player pool.

This variant allows you to get in as much as 4-5x the number of hands as a regular poker table.

Do they offer SNGs & MTTs? What kinds of tourneys can you play?

They offer quite a bit. In fact, NetBet.com says they guarantee more than $5 million every month.

One of their bigger tournament promotions is their Sunday Line-Up. Here are all the tournaments you can play:

Event Time Buy-In
Sunday Lunch €5,000 GTD 11:00 (GMT) €10
The €1,000 GTD 15:00 (GMT) €1
Sunday Warm Up €15,000 GTD 15:00 (GMT) €50
Sunday Frenzy €5,000 GTD 16:00 (GMT) €5
Sunday Hexa €5,000 GTD 16:00 (GMT) €20
Big Sunday €50,000 GTD 17:00 (GMT) €75
Sunday Ricochet €3,000 GTD 18:00 (GMT) €1
Sunday Prime €10,000 GTD 18:15 (GMT) €10
Grand Sunday €20,000 GTD 18:30 (GMT) €30
Sunday Masters €15,000 GTD 19:00 (GMT) €150
Sunday Perl €5,000 GTD 19:00 (GMT) €10

What I like most about their Sunday schedule is that most of the tournaments are cheap to buy into. It’s hard to complain over a $1-$20 buy-in for a Sunday Major. Between the entertainment and potential prize, there’s a lot of value here.

Then there are their everyday tournaments. Here’s what you can look forward to playing daily:

Tournament Time Buy-In
Core €1,000 Gtd 18:15 (GMT) €5
Encore €2,000 Gtd 18:30 (GMT) €5
Ricochet €1,000 Gtd 19:00 (GMT) €1
Echo €5,000 Gtd 19:00 (GMT) €10
Prime €2,000 Gtd 19:15 (GMT) €10
Pure €500 19:30 (GMT) €1

Then there’s their High Roller tournaments – some of these run daily, while others run once per week.

Tournament Time Buy-In
Early Fifty €2,000 Gtd 13:00 (GMT) €50
Warm-up €2,000 Gtd 16:00 (GMT) €50
Phoenix €10,000 Gtd 17:00 (GMT) €20
Hexa €3,000 Gtd 17:00 (GMT) €20
Big €5,000 Gtd 18:00 (GMT) €75
Masters €10,000 Gtd 20:00 (GMT) €50

This doesn’t cover everything, either.

NetBet.com offers a ton of freerolls, too. Some are available to everyone, while others have some hoops you may need to jump through. Most of them have real money prizes, and if not, they have tickets to other tournaments where there’s real money to win.

The bottom line – they have lots of tournaments. That includes SNGs, too. And one of the things the iPoker Network is known for is combining jackpots with SNGs.

One example is their Twister Jackpot promotion.

These are 3-player turbo tournaments with a jackpot. At the start of every game the Wheel of Fortune decides the amount of the jackpot, which is anywhere from 2 to 1,000 times the value of the buy-in.

Here’s how much you can win according to your buy-in:

  • €1 buy-in to win up to €1,000
  • €2 buy-in to win up to €2,000
  • €5 buy-in to win up to €5,000
  • €10 buy-in to win up to €10,000
  • €20 buy-in to win up to €20,000
  • €50 buy-in to win up to €50,000

Prize pools under $1,000 go to the winner of the tournament. Prize pools over $1,000 will have an 80/10/10 payout distribution.

Pretty cool, yeah?

The biggest takeaway for me is how much mileage you can get out of a $25 to $50 bankroll.

What about their software? How do you access it? What features or options are there?

They have a download for Windows. However, they say they don’t have a compatible option for Mac users.

This is surprising since other poker rooms I’ve reviewed in the past have an instant play option. But that doesn’t seem to be the case here.

They also say in their FAQs that it’s unlikely mobile tablets or phones will work, unless they support Flash.

This is pretty disappointing. This isn’t standard for all iPoker sites, either, so I’m curious why NetBet.com hasn’t upgraded their tech.

Who knows? Hopefully they’ll change it soon.

As far as features go, you’ll have the standard options – you can resize tables; you can cascade or tile windows; you can choose your seat; you can pick your avatar; you can save favorite games.

Other features include a hand replayer, different deck and table felt colors and themes, and the ability to play up to 8 tables simultaneously.

Pretty standard stuff overall.

What do we think of NetBet.com? Do we recommend them to our readers?

It’s such a big site that it’s hard to remember every single detail.

They have lots of gambling options. I think most people will want to come here for their sportsbook and casino. There’s just so much to do between these two products.

That’s probably the best part. And as for the things I don’t like?

  • I’m not a fan of some of their playthroughs. They seemed a little high to me. It also doesn’t look like you can play all casino games to clear the casino offers, either – that’s on a case-by-case basis.
  • NetBet.com is also behind the times in terms of software compatibility. No mobile poker? No Mac-friendly download?
This is 2018, not 2007. Get with the times!
  • The worst part about NetBet is their payment delays. There’s no reason to have 1-2+ week processing times. That might make sense for a US-focused site, but not for an international gambling site.

So, it’s no surprise they have lots of complaints revolving around payments.

Unfortunately, though, their complaints include more than just payment delays. You also have account closures, sucky terms, poor communication, and so on.

I get the impression that NetBet is trying to improve. But they’re failing to do so – and have been failing to for the past 10-15 years – which shows in their less-than-average reviews and ratings across the web.

For those reasons, I don’t think NetBet.com would be my first choice. They screw up in the areas that count the most – cash outs – and, for some reason or another, haven’t made it a priority to make that part of their business better.

I mean, if you want to play here, then by all means – have at it. I get the impression from other reputable review sites that they’re a safe, but not optimal choice.

If you’re anything like me, though, optimal is where it’s at. And for those people I recommend maybe bookmarking NetBet for later, and finding an alternative casino in the meantime from our review section.
