Energybet Review – £25 Deposit Bonus
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 Betcontrust 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 – 100% up to £25 Bonus
As we always say bonuses are better than free bets for real bettors. It gives you the opportunity to split your promo funds into multiple wagers which can increase the likelihood of winning while also giving you the best chance to try out the site.
New online bookmakers also need to be confident in their own product if offering a bonus so I think the 100% first deposit welcome bonus up to £25 (£10 minimum) is a sign of great intent from Energybet.
Simply register and make a first deposit, no need to enter any codes, you will then be awarded with a matched bonus up to £25. The bonus itself can be bet on any markets and will be converted to cash, along with bonus winnings, once the bonus and deposit amount has been turned over 5x. To qualify towards the wagering requirements bets must have 2+ picks and total odds of 4/5 (1.80) or greater. Each selection must have odds of at least 1/4+.
The bonus comes with a fairly long turnover period of 30 days meaning you can take your time and bet how you would like to without pressure that your free funds will expire.
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 – 15 Free Spins & £300 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 15 free spins no deposit required (for a range of games, including Mega Fortune, Guns N’ Roses & Starburst). The spins are valid for one week, winnings as a bonus with a 35x WR in 3 days (table games do not count to wagering). Max winnings of £100 with the no deposit spins
If you want to fund your account you can then get a first deposit bonus up to £150 and 5 Super Spins spins. The minimum deposit is just £10 and you will need your deposit + bonus amount 25x within 30 days to complete the wagering requirements. The 5 super spins are for Starburst and are worth no less than £1 each and come with a 25x wagering requirement in 3 days.
If you want to you can also get a 50% up to £150 reload bonus on your second deposit (30x roll-over of d+b amount in 30 days) along with 50 free spins. This time the spins roll-over on any winnings is 15x.
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.
