Energybet is the sportsbook arm of the the very successful and well known Energycasino. They have been around since 2012 but have only recently entered the UK sports betting market gaining a UK gambling license in early 2017. If you are thinking however that this is just another casino with a little sportsbook attached you would be very wrong.
Powered by Betcontruct software the betting site is sleek and fast but most importantly well stocked, with thousands of markets available in 51 different sports and special markets. For betting market variety in particular there are few new UK sports book that can competes right now. Energybet also have a top loyalty points scheme.
Sportsbook Offer – Up To £50 Acca Bonus Bet
Get up to £50 acca bonus when you join Energybet. The bonus amount is equal to 10% of your first deposit, i.e. deposit £500 to claim £50, minimum deposit is £10 giving a £1 acca bonus.
Opt in on deposit to claim the welcome offer. The bonus is awarded automatically and you can use it on any bet with 3+ selections to boost the odds by 100%. Each selection must have odds of 1/4 (1.25) or greater and total odds of 3/2 (2.50) or more. Select ‘Pick Bonus’ on your bet slip followed by ‘Activate’ to confirm.
For example: Deposit £100 and you will get a £10 bonus. Stake the £10 on a betslip, with odds of 3.00 (2/1), then the boost of 100% will mean the final betslip odds are 6.00 (5/1), with possible winnings of £50, plus £10 stake back.
All winnings that result from the boosted acca bet are cash and you have 21 days to use the boost. You must wager your deposit amount at least once before you can withdraw.
It is the range of markets that impresses me the most about Energybet. This is a betting site that holds it own in all the major markets such as football (although do note horse racing is not yet available) and yet they cover many markets that even the big UK bookies do not cover.
At Energybet you can wager on over 1000 football events at any one time but also bet on Alpine Skiing, Surfing, Netball, Futsal, Bandy, Chess, Cross-Country Skiing and Sumo Wresting in addition to over 40 other classic sports markers
Energybet also stand out as a top eSports and virtual sports bookmaker too with markets on all the major game titles (e.g. Counter Strike, Dota 2, League of Legends, StarCraft 2).
Energy Casino – 100% up to £50 Bonus
Energycasino (click to read review) is a very respected brand with lots of experience and great games (over 400 slots) from well respected software providers (NetEnt and Microgaming) and a reputation for high payout rate and good customer service.
Having now launched a very decent sportspork the Energy brand is now a good option for those who like to play casino games but don’t want to have a separate account to place bets on sports and other events.
If you think you may get more out of a casino welcome offer then you could instead choose to claim the Energycasino. For joining you can get a first deposit bonus up to £50. The minimum deposit is just £10 and you will need your bonus amount 35x within 30 days to complete the wagering requirements.
Almost all slots count fully to the wagering requirement, all video poker and table games do not along with a small list of slot games (see Energy terms for those). There is a maximum £5 bet / spin contribution to the rollover.
This is a fantastic casino site for regular customer too with a plethora of daily, weekly and monthly bonus and free spins prizes. The energy points scheme is also good value in comparison to others.
Energy Bet Promotions and Loyalty
Energybet have more casino offers at present compared to sports but there will be more on the way soon as the sports side develops in the UK market.
The brand already sponsor Milwall as their main in stadia betting partner and Leyton Orient a their main sponsor so you can certainly expect some regular football offers soon. If you are a fan of either club there are regular ticket giveaways on site.
Recently Energybet also launched acca insurance, open to all 5+ football multiples, refund if a leg lets you down up to £10 (min odds 1/5+ each selection).
In terms of loyalty however Energybet have something that is very rare in the world of sports, a loyalty points scheme known as EnergyPoints. Points can be earned in both the sportsbook and the casino and can be converted in the shop for a huge range of things from real cash (100 points = €1) , merchandise (including things like watches, iPads and phones) and even luxury holidays.
British Pounds are converted to Euros for the purposes of earning points and shop purchase, one euro is equivalent to around £1.10 (depending on how the UK is doing in Brexit negotiations at any one time!).
Energy points can be earned at a rate of 1 for every €5 (~£4) spent on most casino games and 1 for every €20 (~£16) bet in the sportsbook.
Energycasino launched in 2012 and Energybet was established in 2016 gaining a licence to operate in the UK soon after. Both brands are owned and licenced under Probe Investments Limited based in Malta.
Despite being fairly new to the game Energycasino has achieved huge notoriety already due to having one of the highest payout rates (and therefore lowest profit margins) in the industry. There is no better way to get long term customer loyalty than being honest and fair in your approach to your users and I have to say they seem to be translating this into their sportsbook too. Energybet have very good basic odds and through the enerypoints scheme you are always getting a rebate that can be exchanged for bonuses, free bets or prizes.
Having already established a large online casino this means the sportsbook is fully catered for when it comes to the range of banking options and quality of support. This isn’t a new brand just a new sports bookmaker arm of an already large and innovative iGaming company.
Energybet are not the best option if you are looking for a massive one size fits all sports bookmaker, rather this is a great site for anyone looking for something fresh, new and different and especially anyone who likes to play games alongside.
With their fair rates, market variety and attention to customer loyalty I expect this brand to grow and grow as a top UK online bookie.
