Review of ManBetX
ManBetX’s name appeared on the front of the Crystal Palace kit a few years back abd the company now sponsoe Wolves but very little is known about them . Having since taken a closer look at their betting offering for this ManBetX review, it’s still a little hard to believe that they have secured such a high profile sponsorship deals.
The ManBetX website is far less attractive and more difficult to use than any of the sites belonging to better established bookmakers.
In fact, it looks quite amateurish and suggests that the company may not be a serious player.
That feeling is only enhanced by the research done on the company’s background and the fact that ManBetX run no promotions. That’s right… no whatsoever!
Bottom line here straight away… take your business elsewhere (see our betting reviews for other options).
Pros & Cons of Manbetx
- Good range of markets.
- Decent In-Play betting opportunities.
- Extremely difficult to find via Google.
- Lack of live streaming.
- No promotions whatsoever on site.
- Terrible name. Don’t women gamble too?
Manbetx Licensing & Safety
Is Manbetx Safe?
- UK Gambling Commission license
- Unknown brand
- Parent company owns many unspectacular bookies
- No track record
ManBetX is an online sports betting brand which first came to the attention of most punter’s when it became the main shirt sponsor of Crystal Palace.
The brand is owned and operated by Vivaro Limited, which is a company registered and headquartered in Malta.
In order to offer the ManBetX online bookmaking service legally to punters within the UK, Vivaro Limited is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. A cursory glance at the ManBetX website, too, reveals that the brand is also affiliated with both gambleaware.co.uk and IBAS.
- ManBetX is owned by Vivaro Limited.
- As well as ManBetX, Vivaro Limited have registered a large number of brand names with the UKGC – non of which are well known.
- Before becoming the principle short sponsor of Crystal Palace FC in 2017, ManBetX had very little if any presence in the online gambling industry in the UK.
- Given the uncertain and unproven background of ManBetX and Vivaro, it’s impossible to give the bookmaker a better than poor to average overall safety rating.

How To Deposit To Manbetx
To deposit into your Manbetx account, simply log in and then click on the Banking option.
Here you will see an option to deposit into your account. Click on that and then select which payment method you wish to use to add funds to your account. ManbetX doesn’t offer a huge range of options here for UK customers, but the most common payment methods are available.
Enter the details required to register your payment method with the site and then enter in how much you wish to deposit. Click the button to proceed and your deposit should, in most cases, be in your account instantly.
However, if the company has an issue, they may even verify your identity before you make a deposit, in which case, you will need to do this before your deposit is added to your balance.
How To Withdraw From Manbetx
Withdrawing from Manbetx is a similar process to depositing. You log in and click on the Banking button and then from the list of options, select the option to Withdraw.
You will only be able to withdraw to payment methods that you have used previously to deposit into your account and if you are making a first time withdrawal, or a high value one, then you will likely be asked to verify your identity.
Select the payment option you wish to withdraw to and then the amount you wish to withdraw, together with any other information the page asks from you.
Click the button to proceed and your withdrawal will be actioned and will likely be with you shortly.
How Long Does It Take To Withdraw At Manbetx?
Rather than list the amount of time it takes for the different deposit methods to action a withdrawal from Manbetx, the site simply offers a vague timescale of 2-3 working days for all different payment methods.
However, they do also state that if a customer needs to verify their identity to process the withdrawal for any reason, then this time scale may be longer.
Pretty uninspiring, much like the rest of their offering, and we take real objection to not being able to see actual cash out times. Naturally ManBetX review very poorly vs the rest of the market in this category as a result.
Customer Service at Manbetx
What’s customer support like?
- Email support offered
- No live chat
- No phone line
- Postal address in Malta!?
Customer support services for Manbetx, especially in the UK, are somewhat limited to say the least and you do get the feeling that the company doesn’t really want to appeal to British customers given the lack of promotions, certain betting markets not being available, and no easy customer service options.
You can contact the company via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or a postal address (Manbetx.uk, C/O Vivaro Limited, Luxe Pavillion, 2nd Level, Diamonds International Building, Portmaso, St Julian’s, STJ 4010 Malta), the latter of which is located in Malta, so good luck if you need a very quick resolution to an account issue, as you could be waiting a fair time before anyone gets round to it.
This quite frankly isn’t good enough and another black mark in our review of ManBetX and their service.
Manbetx Website Review
Is Manbetx Easy To Use?
- No dedicated mobile app offered
- Miles off being user-friendly
- Slightly improved desktop site
- Too many negatives to list
Manbetx Mobile Review
Manbetx does not offer a bespoke mobile app, instead you can access the site from a browser. The site has been improved over the last couple of years, and is more mobile-friendly, but it is still nowhere near as user-friendly or accessible as some of the top apps and sites on the market today.
Part of that may be because it doesn’t seem to me that Manbetx are particularly bothered about mobile customers as they don’t offer any real incentive to access the site in your mobile. The same issues that beset the desktop site are also annoyingly present in the mobile.
On a more positive note, the site’s presentation over the years has improved and has gone from being downright amateurish, to much more eye-catching, it is just that the stuff that is being advertised are not things that are going to excite customers about betting with the site.
Sure, you can access Manbetx on your mobile, but in truth, there’s no real point in doing so as the site is just poor for UK customers.
Manbetx Desktop Review
The desktop site effectively mirrors the mobile site, although it is presented in a slightly more appealing way as it is based on a larger screen size. It has been improved over the years and now looks passable at first glance, but you soon discover that there isn’t a lot to get excited about behind the new look.
The positives are a good selection of sports available and a great number of markets available on many sporting events.
The negatives though are many and serious. The site is almost unfindable on Google, which suggests a serious misjudgement from their SEO and marketing team, either that or the company isn’t bothered about being found, even when you type its name into Google as the search term.
Then there are the issues with the site. The odds are not that competitive, the live betting is extensive but doesn’t offer any live streaming and is presented in such a dull and uninspiring way that you won’t want to bother with it. The site doesn’t offer esports, Virtual Sports, greyhounds or horseracing betting and there aren’t even any promotions to enjoy in the Promotions box.
For us, this site is a real mess and Manbetx have focused on the wrong things to appeal, certainly to a UK market and likely many more too.
How To Join Manbetx
Joining Manbetx is no easy task! Your first job is to locate the site, which shows up appallingly badly in search engines. As such, use this link www.manbetx.uk in order to access site to sign up. Once there:
- Click on the Register button at the top of the page.
- A form appears on screen asking you to select your username, a password and also the email address you want to link to the account. Complete these boxes and then click the Next button.
- This brings up a much more detailed page where you have to enter a lot more information about yourself. Some of which I feel is very unnecessary (salary level and occupation for example)
- At the foot of this page you then need to check boxes to accept internal messages, push notifications, phone calls, emails or SMS from the site.
- You then check the box to agree to the terms and conditions.
- Finally click the Register button to join the site.
Markets & Odds at Manbetx
What sports can you bet on at Manbetx?
- Over 25 sports offered
- In-play betting
- Good market depth
- Horrible website to navigate
Having got the thorny issue of ManBetX’s lack of reputation and uncertain background out of the way, let’s get to the meat and drink of this review. The sensible place to start with that is with the range of markets and events which the bookie present to their customers.
ManBetX provide a wide range of different markets from many events across all of the following sports:
- American Football
- Aussie Rules
- Formula One
- Ice Hockey
- Rugby League
- Rugby Union
- Table Tennis
- Water Polo
Looking purely at the range of sports covered, ManBetX are almost on a par with most of the major online bookmakers.
That almost is important, however, as ManBetX do not currently offer any markets for betting on horse racing.
This is somewhat puzzling, given the popularity of horse racing betting in the UK, and will obvious make ManBetX an immediate no-no for any punters who do like a bet on the gee-gees.
Popular events, such as Premier League football, benefit from over 150 different markets for ManBetX punters to choose from. Those markets don’t dry up, either, once an event gets under way, as lots of in-play betting markets are also offered (more on that below).
Whilst ManBetX do provide plenty of different betting markets, it can be awkward for punters to find the one they want. The main ManBetX website, after all, is extremely cluttered and confusing and could never be described as being user-friendly.
Columns… so many horrible columns.
In-Play Betting Review at Manbetx
Is live betting offered at Manbetx?
- Live betting area
- 30,000 events per month
- 100+ live markets for some events
- No live streaming
You don’t have to be on the main ManBetX website long to realise that it is primarily focussed on in-play betting.
Events currently in-play are featured prominently on the home page and the site also has a dedicated live betting section.
Within the live betting area of the ManBetX website, events which are in-play and are about to go in-play are listed on a kind of sidebar down the left hand side. That sidebar is useful but is hard to get your head around and is just one of a number of things which make the live betting area feel cluttered and difficult to use.
Once you’ve got past the initial difficulty of navigating the site, however, ManBetX do offer a great many live betting markets for a large number of different events from an array of sports. Higher profile events often benefit from well over 100 separate markets, whilst even lesser known matches from less popular sports can still generally boast ten or more.
The ManBetX interface, image above, for each in-play event is largely in line with that offered by many of the big bookmakers.
A live scoreboard with helpful statistics features at the top and is supplemented by a pitch (or court, or field etc.) view style graphic which displays live updates from the event.
Man do they need to fix they site layout though… it’s so confusing it’s almost unusable.
New customer offer
- No bonus offered
- No other promotions
- No reason to join
- Many better options
At time of writing, ManBetX appears to be bucking the trend in the online betting industry by not offering any kind of welcome promotion.
In fact, the bookmaker do not as it stands run any promotions at all for either new or existing customers.
This lack of promotions makes it hard to imagine any new punter wanting to abandon an existing bookmaker for these new kids on the block.
What’s more, it seems extremely unusual for an online bookie to completely ignore the idea of promotions, when almost every other company in the field run plenty of them. It may of course be the case that some ManBetX offers are in the pipeline but together with the company’s lack of established reputation, it just adds to one’s doubts over the company’s legitimacy.

How To Use The Manbetx Bonus
Manbetx doesn’t seem to offer any bonuses whatsoever on the site, not even a welcome bonus for new customers, even though the site has a ‘Promotions” button in the top corner of the site. In this day and age, that is dreadful service to customers. Especially when there are so many great starter bonuses available with top betting sites, as well as a wide choice of other regular promotions too.
Again ManBetX reviews very poorly vs the competition here – a sign up bonus is very standard across the industry.
Our Review of ManBetX
Appearing as if from nowhere into the UK gambling field, ManBetX is a bookmaker which offers a very average service to punters. It’s difficult to imagine anyone would want to open an account.
The ManBetX website is broadly unattractive and is really quite difficult to use in practice. There’s also no horse racing betting offered and perhaps even more strangely, no bonus or offers being run.
When you add those weaknesses of the ManBetX service to the company’s uncertain and unestablished background, it’s impossible to recommend abandoning a bigger bookie for these new boys.
Compare them to someone like Bet365 and you wonder why they even opened their doors in the first place.
