Genting Bet Review
The best way to describe Genting is a world class casino with a fully equipt sportsbook, this is really a betting site for those that want access to top sports markets with good odds, features and offers, alongside top end casino games.
The brand is over 50 years old (est 1965) and you may recognise them from their worldwide land based casinos and resorts, around 50 of which are in the UK.
Genting Bet is bigger than pretty much every other casino-sportsbook, and certainly better than many new dedicated online bookies. There is a lot of knowledge and a lot of backing to Genting Bet making this brand superior to most ‘new sites’.
Genting Bet – £10 Insurance + £50 Bonus for Casino
Given the casino heritage of the Genting brand it is no surprise therefore that as part of the welcome offer Genting are giving the opportunity to try out both the sports betting and casino games sections.
You of course don’t have to take the additional casino bonus if you don’t want to but then few sites give you offers for both sports and casino (usually you need to take one or the other) so it is worth a try.
To claim your £10 first bet insurance simply register and bet £10+ on a market with off of evens of higher, or if placing a multiple bet 2/5 (1.40)+ for each selection. This can be on any sports betting event(s) of your choice.
If that bet loses Genting Bet will credit you with a £10 free bet token, within 24 hours, that remains valid for 14 days thereafter. If you do not want to wait a long time to get the insurance it may be better to wager on an event coming up soon.
The token must be wagered in one go on any bet, or multiple bet, with odds of 4/1 (5.0) or less. Of course you do not get the stake back but any winnings will be in cash.
Genting will also match your first deposit with a casino bonus up to £50. The minimum that can be claimed is £10, although this is also the minimum deposit amount anyway so you may as well claim the bonus when depositing to place your bet with insurance.
The bonus has a fairly standard 50x wagering requirement within 30 days. Almost all slots will count 100% to the rollover, some games count 50% (e.g. roulette – all versions), some 25% (e.g. Baccarat – all versions), some 10% (Blackjack – all versions) and a few games 0% (e.g. Craps).
There is a £25 individual bet limit on the bonus. As always check these terms before you start playing (available when you click below) to work out your own requirements based on the games you want to play
Anyone making a first deposit by Skrill are not eligible for the offer.
Genting provide all the major sports markets the typical bettor would need, including horse racing (many new bookies don’t have racing), and traditional sports such as cricket, darts and snooker. They even cover markets such as eSports, GAA, Handball, Volleyball, etc., which you only tend to find with bigger bookmakers.
Market depth is impressive, with hundreds of lines for a top footy game for example. The in-play section is equally well stocked and priced and there are also coupons, price boosts and specials to enjoy. If you landed on this site and were told that it was just a betting site with no casino I think you would be impressed enough with the sportsbook alone.
Genting Casino – 200% up to £400
If you are someone that plays casino games and you are looking for an operator who has it all then you probably cannot do better than Genting. As a package of online casino, sportsbook and real world casinos there are few others who could compete.
Should you play more casino than sports, or you want a bigger welcome offer, consider taking the casino only bonus. This doesn’t come with the bet insurance for sports but you can claim a much higher percentage (200%) and amount in the form of a matched first bonus up to £400 (£10 min).
The bonus has pretty much the same conditions as the smaller offer discussed above, use code GENT400 when depositing. 50x roll-over in 30 days with the same game contribution structure and £25 bet limit. Maximum withdrawal form the bonus is £1000. For more terms or to claim click the button below.
Genting Bet Features and Regular Promotions
The best way to judge an online bookmaker is by how they treat people after they’ve signed up. With many brand new sites there just isn’t enough substance and so punters end up leaving as soon as they’ve used the introductory deal.
Genting are frankly massive, they employ over 60,000 people for example. This means therefore they have not just thrown up any old sports betting website, they have designed it for customers who want to place regular bets. Here are some examples of offers available from Genting:
- Best Odds Guaranteed – A lot of sportbooks don’t offer horse racing, let alone guarantee you the best price if the starting price of the horse is higher than the fixed price you were given on the day.
- Footy Acca Insurance – Pick a 5+ acca made up from any football matches from any league or event and should one team let you down you will get your stake back up to £20.
- Event Free Bets – Reliable for free bets and bonuses around big racing events (e.g. Cheltenham Festival and Royal Ascot), football (Premier League and Cup finals), as well as other sports such as tennis, darts, snooker and more.
- Excellent Casino Deals – We don’t usually cover casino offers as part of sportsbooks but if you bet with Genting you are highly likely to play some casino. There are quite a lot of promotions on a daily basis but suffice to say players can get excellent value. Genting points is one of the best loyalty programs for casino too.
Genting is a massive Malaysian company that operates casinos, theme parks and resorts all over the world. They even own a ton of land and plantations and invest heavily in bio-tech, IT, property and even cruise ships.
The company was established in 1965 by Malaysian businessman Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong and after initially growing the company as a leisure brand the group expanded to the massive conglomerate it is today.
From a customer perspective this means the operator is heavily backed with both money and experience, a lot of which they can afford to pass on to the punter through good prices, deals and features.
Genting offer customer services based in the UK (24/7), a choice in excess of 400 online games (from a range of software providers) and access to real casinos in every major city and town, including Resort World in Birmingham. The VIP service from these guys is truly exceptional and you can receive linked rewards for online and offline play.
As a sportsbook alone Genting is decent, but as an overall brand this operator is a gambling giant one stop shop. If you don’t like big corporations then this may not be the brand for you, if however you quite fancy the benefits that come with such a well resourced and established brand then look no further.
