bet-at-home Review

Bet-at-Home are originally a Austrian bookmaker with a very continental outlook, they are fully UK licensed and regulated. They may be fairly new to the British market but these guys know their stuff.

Having been around since 1999 this brand has carved out a niche as one of Germany’s best betting sites and have over 5 million active customers. They have not rushed their product, they do not aggressively market and they focus on honest odds, providing a super-fast interface and generally giving punters what they want; good value bets.

They do not currently have a UK welcome offer and therefore are obviously less attractive to sign up with than the other sites we list.  If however you are less concerned about bonuses and are more interested in variety then this will be a great addition to a bettors portfolio, especially if you bet on continental leagues and sports where B-a-H have more depth and better prices than UK focused brands.

Verification

It is now a requirement to verify yourself before you can deposit and bet with any UK licensed bookie.

Bet-at-home are very keen to verify an account immediately, and have been doing this long before the law required it, so you may notice you are asked for verification documents, such as a copy of photo ID, when you register.

Below is a screenshot of what you will see when you register.

This is nothing to worry about, and if anything shows this brand are conscientious and secure. Other bookies usually wait a little longer to verify you but the process is exactly the same, to bet you must prove your age and identity.

The Bet-At-Home Site

The bet-at-home betting site is a professional looking site and very easy to use once you get started. The interface is clean and not crowded with markets and flash graphics. This makes finding what you want to bet on a breeze. Live betting is equally as easy to use and in fact it is amazing how these guys cram so many markets into the space and yet keep the clarity.

The site covers all the standard markets a UK punter would expect as well as covering some more continental sports and specials markets in much more depth than a UK only bookmaker. The site also has a nice navigation feature listing ‘todays bets’ and ‘tomorrows bets’, this sounds like a simple thing but many bookies don’t do this. The site also has easy to find and use terms through player guides as well as results, live scores and statistics areas. Bet-at-home also have a casino, eSports and virtuals section.

For the average punter this book has everything you need to bet on standard sports markets. For those looking for lines not usually found elsewhere such as floorball, bandy, various combat sports and eSports then this is actually one of the best betting sites around. Bet-at-home have been around a long time and while they may be relatively new to the UK market they do have a lot of experience and resources.

It is worth noting they do not cover horse or greyhound racing.

Banking, Features and Other Stuff

bet-at-home banking methodsChoice of payment options at b-a-h far exceed what you get from most sites other than the big high street giants.  You can fund your account with a range of card, eWallet and cash voucher options.

Most have a £10 deposit minimum, PaySafeCard can be used with as little as £1. Withdrawals are also generally £10 minimum and the processing time is fantastic, usually always within one day or less.

In a sign of how open this brand is they publish on their site everything to do with the company, including share prices and profits.  they publish the return to player (RTP) rates of every casino game they offer too.

The terms of this site are both clear and fair, this is an old school bookie that want loyal and honest customer too.  In some ways this is refreshing in the very capitalist world of online gambling.

In terms of features you can do everything you would expect with an established site, including cash out.  The site even offers stream, particularly of eSports, which is one of their strongest niches.

Bet-at-home do not have any long running offers but will occasionally run event specific money back and free bet promotions for major events. The model of bet-at-home is a little more like BetVictor than Paddy Power, striving to give customers good value first before flashy offers.

In the long run for raw odds you will be better off betting here but don’t expect thousands of weekly offers.  When available latest bet-at-home promotions are listed on our various sports pages.

About bet-at-home

The nice thing about this bookmaker is they don’t pretend to be British, they are an unashamedly European betting site with a UK license. Many other operators try to make out they are as British as pint of ale when in fact there is very little bulldog under the bonnet.

Bet-at-home are now based in Malta but originally they hail from Austria with offices still bases there as well as Germany and Gibraltar. The company was founded by Jochen Dickinger and Franz Omer back in 1999, listed on the Frankfurt stock exchange in 2004 but only obtained a UK gambling license in 2014, this is why you may not have heard much about them. The company are open and honest in every way and are even registered and licensed in their own name rather than under the umbrella of a holding company like many others.

Honesty and openness prevails with bet-at-home and this is rather refreshing. Bet-at-home do what you see on the tin. They have a clean and open sportsbook with live betting, great odds, all major markets covered and some minor markets too. If you are a standard punter or bettor looking for different lines to wager on then this bookmaker would make a welcome addition to your portfolio.

They are also one of the best at leaving you alone, letting you get on with betting. Certainly worth trying out.
