Vbet (Vivaro Bet) Review
Vbet, or Vivaro Bet to give them their full name, are new to the UK market having gained a licence only recently. They are not new to the bookmaking game however, established in 2008 the stylish looking betting site has become a favourite in many European countries. They have a different style and feel to almost every other UK facing betting site.
The brand has been around for over ten years and this means punters get a lot more from these guys than you would usually get from most ‘new’ betting sites. The site suns on BetContruct software and is the premier brand, i.e. the brand used to show off the platform – therefore you can expect the very best interface with Vbet without any bugs.
Vbet provide over 30,000 live events a month, cash-out, tons of payment methods and top customer service. Their European pedigree also gives them a different angle with many markets and events available that are not so common with UK only focused sportsbooks.
Vbet Sportsbook – Matched £5-75 Free Bet
Simply register with Vbet, make a first deposit (No Paysafe, Skrill, Eco Payz, Rapid, MuchBetter or Neteller), minimum deposit is £5, and place a £5+ bet on any 3+ accumulator within 14 days of opening your account. This must be the first wager you place and each selection must have at total odds of 1/5 (1.50)+ (any sports markets, pre-match or live) to receive a matched free bet token up to £75.
The Vbet offer is perfect for someone who wants to try out a new site, giving you the flexibility to take a small free bet (£5) and therefore not laying out a large deposit, or if you want to stake more you can get up to £75. The free bet also comes with better terms than most similar offers, it is valid for 14 days instead of the usual 7 and can be used on any sinlge pre-match or in-play markets, the free token unlike the qualifying bet is not restricted to multiple bets. You must however use the free bet on a market with odds above 4/5 (1.80)
Free bet stake itself is not returned although all winnings are in real cash. You can make a first withdrawal once you’ve bet through your deposit.
Vbet Markets and Features
The short and sweet welcome offer should give you a feel for whether you like Vbet. You will notice straight away that this is a very stylised sportbook with a very slick purple, black and grey theme, inter-sliced with images of rolling fields and watercolours. It’ like nothing you’ve ever seen. Users have huge flexibility in the look of the interface too with settings that allow you to switch the view between a modern look, Asian theme, classic view or combo.
Live betting can also be tailored to suit you with several views available. There are even six different odds formats to choose from, a sign of the versatility of this brand.
I’ve been quite impressed also by the features available from this bookie. They have all the typical stuff you expect from decent operators now, such as cash out and a large in play offering, but they also have a lot of elements that you don’t get with many newer UK brands.
There is a vast statistics section, which is a pleasure to use combined with easy to use interface, covering more unusual sports such as curling, water polo, futsal, floorball , trotting and field hockey in addition to the usual big sports of football, tennis and American football. The news section is also excellent, informative, good looking and well populated. If you didn’t know these guys ran a sportsbook you could be fooled into thinking they are a sports news and stats site.
There is no horse racing available at present and the casino is not available yet in the UK, although both are sure to come soon. What you do get however with Vbet is a huge variety of markets, so if you bet on more than just football and racing or if you would like to try betting on some different sports this is a great place to bet.
The casino application is fully up and running too if you like to play games with games from Micrograming, iSoftBet and others.
About Vivaro Bet
Vivaro Betting Ltd, the owners of Vbet, formed in 2003, launched their first betting and gaming products in 2008 and are now based in Malta (Luxe Pavilion, 2nd level, Diamonds International Building, Portomaso, St Julian’s STJ 4010) employing in the region of 1000 people – so not a small operator for sure.

Vbet provide a great looking sportsbook that is powered by BetConstruct, probably the most stylish sports and casino betting platform out there right now. They are the original BetContruct brand too, so like a show home they’ve packed it with all the features and options. I’ve had fun betting on some sports I didn’t even know you could wager on with these guys.
Vivaro bet are also good for depth of market. With football for example you can punt on leagues from all over the world, including places like Russia, Mexico, Japan and the middle east. If you like variety this is a great new sportsbook for adventurous punters. They are also well established meaning great customer support and an array of banking options with low limits (e.g. £5 min deposit) and decent payout speeds.
