Review of Sports Markets
The first thing that you will notice about the sport section of the Betsson site is that it is perhaps the nicest looking and aesthetically pleasing of all of the sites of this type. Although this doesn’t affect the practicalities of the site, it does mean a much more pleasurable experience – top marks on design guys.
Betsson, as well as being nice to look at, also offer a number of different sports to bet on as well, all of which can be found listed on the left. These sports are:
Football, tennis, ice hockey, American football, athletics, basketball, cricket, golf, snooker, handball, bandy, baseball, floorball, formula one, rugby league, rugby union, boxing, darts, volleyball, cross country skiing, ski jumping, biathlon, MMA, futsal and pool.
This massive number of sports is due to the fact that this is an international sportsbook, so popular sports from all different countries must be covered. This explains why people must choose their country of residence when entering the website for the first time.
Each of the sports listed on the left of the page can be expanded to show all of the different events taken place, both in the future and in the present. While some have hundreds of entries – such as football and ice hockey – others are more limited. Currently there is only one match to bet on in the baseball category for example.
You can be assured though that all major events in every sport are comprehensively covered. It’s the smaller events where Betsson struggles. They also struggle to compete with the big boys when it comes to the competitiveness of their odds and for this we’ve naturally had to score them down.
Live Betting Review
The live console offered on Betsson gets marked up against some bookmaker thanks to the level of in game stats provided. The only thing they lack here is action areas which to be honest are not massively useful anyway. Live streaming isn’t available either which is a shame as it really brings down their mark in this section.
The main in-play screen shows all the different games being played on the left, plus there is also a featured game displayed in the centre of the screen. This featured game can be changed to any other game that you wish at any time and shows all of the available odds for the game at that exact moment.
In the middle of the main content area under your selected event you’ll see the live odds. For the most part these are quite comprehensive and we’re impressed with the different number of markets available to bet per event – good job here guys.

Unfortunately there are not many promotions being offered at Betsson at the current time. In fact, there is only one to speak about:
– Deposit £25 get £50 (all sports) – This is the opening account offer from Betsson. Basically sign up and deposit £25 and they’ll double your money to bet with straight away. To release the bonus you must wager it 10 x over.
Sorry folks… none currently available. Check out https://sportsbook.betsson.com/ to see if that’s changed.
Betsson Grade – 3.5 Stars Explained
Betsson are Swedish based online bookmaker and we’ve given them a 3.5 star grade in our sites rating section. The top grade is 5*, then 4.5*, 4* and then 3.5*. Any site with a 3.5 star grade is defined as a safe and secure place to wager online and perform financial transactions.
You’ve probably already guessed why Betsson aren’t graded higher than a 3.5 out of 5 and that’s quite simply because they don’t offer customers anywhere enough promotions – it’s the welcome bonus and that’s your lot folks.
The service they offer is good but no better than that on offer at other bookies such as Bet365 and even BetVictor. Why would we rate them higher if we can’t find a real reason why punters should pick them over other online bookies.
