Welcome bonus: 100% Up to €500/¥4,000
If you’re bold enough to call yourself your number-one then you better be big enough and good enough to deserve the accolade – so let’s see whether 1Bet deserve the name?
1Bet introduces itself as one of the world’s leading sportsbooks, and it’s no surprise that the sportsbook came first and the casino later. However, both sportsbook customers and casino players seem to get treated with equal importance.
Casino players can look forward to generous welcome and reload offers, and these will give you the chance to experience everything about the casino that will help you decide whether you want to be a regular player there.
Customer Support is certainly top-notch and includes a Skype Option, whilst the range of language, currency and deposit options that are available will make the casino accessible to millions of customers around the world.
There is also a good range of games to play, and table games include Poker, Pontoon, Blackjack, Texas Hold’em, Baccarat, Roulette, Craps, Sic Bo, Keno, Face-up 21, Bingo and Scratchcards.
1Bet doesn’t have the biggest range of slots with just over 50 to choose from, but all its games are by software company Games OS. As this isn’t one of the more used portfolios on the market – it gives you a chance to play some good games you might not have played at other casinos you’re a member of.
1Bet is based and regulated in Curacao, and was established in 2011.
500 Euro Welcome
1Bet are keen for you to spend plenty of time enjoying all they have to offer, and to enable you to do that they’re happy to offer you a 100% first-deposit bonus of up to 500 Euros or currency equivalent. Players in China have a separate welcome offer of a 100% bonus of up to 4,000 RMB. Both your deposit and bonus need wagering through 30x prior to withdrawal, whilst some games are excluded from wagering requirements, so it’s a good idea to have a read of the terms and conditions.
If the welcome bonus isn’t enough for you to make up your mind whether 1Bet is going to be one of the regular casinos you bet at, then you’ll be pleased to know that they also offer a generous 120% second-deposit reload bonus of up to 300 Euros. This also requires deposit and bonus to be wagered 30x.
1Bet doesn’t seem to offer much in the way of ongoing casino promotions, free-spins or a loyalty scheme, but it does have some sportsbook promotions you might want to take advantage of. They also offer best-odds, early lines, an extensive range of bets, and live sports betting.
In a world of slots that can often be dominated by the likes of Netent and Microgaming (as much as I love their games), it’s quite refreshing to have the opportunity to play slots from a lesser used company, in the shape of Games OS. There are only 50+ slots available, but there are still plenty of fun games to play including Magic of OZ, Pipezillas, Vampire Slayers and Summer Dreams.
As the name suggests, Magic of Oz will see you team-up with Dorothy, Toto, The Lion, The Tin Man and The Scarecrow on an adventure down the yellow-brick road as you go in search of Wild Emeralds, the Pick A Gem Bonus, and the Diamond Arrow Bonus. Or why not try and stop a bunch of sewer-dwelling monsters who love spending their time robbing parking meters in Pipezillas, in which you can enjoy Mega Wilds, Free-Spins and a Pipe Race. If you want to sex-up your slot-play then a few spins of Summer Dreams is what’s required. You can lounge about on the beach with a cocktail and watch beautiful bikini-clad babes, and hopefully get involved in the Summer Girls Bonus Round. Meanwhile, if you fancy being the hero of the hour then it’s time to grab your garlic, crucifix, holy water, and anything capable of sticking a wooden stake through the heart of a vampire as you become one of the Vampire Slayers.
1Bet claim that their casino is available on the go thanks to their WAP Mobile Instant Play. I had no problem using it whatsoever, so it’s just a case of testing it out to see if it’s a good fit for you if you love a bit of gaming action when you’re out and about.
Number 1 Customer Support
1Bet may say that the customer is the most important person, but it’s great to see them back that statement up with a level of customer service which compares favourably with the best around. There’s 24/7 live-chat with a short-cut on the bottom right of the page, email contact, fax contact, and a handy FAQ section. There may be no phone contact – but that’s because this casino has gone one step further and set-up Skype Calls.
A Good Bet
I’d be lying if I said I think 1Bet is the number-one place to bet, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider it as it has lots going for it. The customer support is great, and that should give you the confidence to make the most of the welcome bonus and reload bonus which you can use to play some slots which you may never have played before. Of course, there’s also the sportsbook to take a look at, and the chance to place both your sports bets and casino bets through one friendly portal makes 1Bet – a good bet!
