Having read our TonyBet ratings 2018, it is time to give you some essential details in this TonyBet sports review. TonyBet is an international brand, established in 2009 and originally licensed for operation in Estonia. It was acquired in 2016 by the Swedish company Betsson and is now licensed for the UK market, by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission. As well as running a sportsbook, TonyBet also run a casino, poker and lottery online entertainment site.
This is not the largest bookmaker in the sector and its sponsorship deals demonstrate its home roots, as they are the sponsors of the National Lithuanian basketball team, amongst other east European groups. Despite its size, everything we have read whilst researching the TonyBet sports review suggests this is a solid company, one that loyal customers trust.
There are some highs and lows for users of this site. The website is easy to use, and the designers have done a great job in helping the gambler to find interesting places on the site. Although sports betting sites are generally logical in the navigation map, our team were particularly impressed by doing the background research clicks for this TonyBet sports review. The site does all it can to guide you to the most popular markets and to the best offers they have to offer.
Yet, as you will find throughout this review, there is a however. Our TonyBet ratings 2018 are impacted by the heavy use of flash on the site. Not only does this make the load times shockingly slow but it also clutters the screen to a point of distraction.
There is an app, if you prefer. This is high quality and makes it easy to make bets on the go. Our recommendation would be to stick with the app and avoid the website, but everything is subjective, and you might want to try before you agree with this opinion in this TonyBet sports review.
The betting, the odds and the prices
If you were to use a betting comparison site, then TonyBet are unlikely to factor in the best prices offered. This is a major factor in our consideration of the quality of bets offered in our TonyBet ratings 2018. They are close to the industry average without being spectacular. The site is relatively new to the UK betting markets and this might explain why it is taking them some time to catch up with the leaders in the sector.
The number of markets offered are good, without being amazing. They offer some niche markets such as Chess and martial arts, and they have a good coverage of the American sports such as American football and basketball. There is a sense that they are sticking to the mainstream markets until more established. It is likely that as time passes TonyBet will extend the markets that they choose to work in. From what we have read within customer reviews, the site is constantly working to add to its offering and this is something that we have factored into our TonyBet ratings 2018.
The in-play market on the site tends to be limited to the more popular markets, such as football. However, what is excellent is that the odds fluctuate rapidly as you watch. This really enhances the sports you watch, giving added excitement as the action unfolds. You are given live scores, statistics and tips on the website to help inform your choices. We really enjoyed this aspect of the site and it is one we would like to emphasise in our TonyBet sports review.
Be aware that as yet there is no live streaming, but the site is new, and we sense that it will develop down this road soon or later.
Promotions and customer service
The promotions offered by TonyBet are lowkey but do add to the value of some of the bets. The welcome bonus is generous, as an example. There is a 50% bonus on deposits up to £100. This is more than most sites, with the chance of getting a free bet of up to £100. However, as we have said before – there is always a but with TonyBet. The minimum odds for this welcome bonus is 1.85, which is high and there are likely few markets available for betting – and the winnings will be small. You will be expected to go through a 12x playthrough with these winnings too. So, all in all, you can say that this bonus seems generous – but is it really?
The customer services on the site are as expected from a multi-national company. There is 24/7 support from live chat and a phone line. We liked the operators on the phone line, we found them well-trained and friendly and the first person we spoke to was able to answer our question. There was no passing us around a series of operators until we got the one who knew. The site is also active on social media and has a strong community of followers. This factored heavily in our conclusions for our TonyBet sports review, as the best advocates for a betting site are its customers.
Our overall TonyBet Sports Review
If you stick with TonyBet we are certain that the site will grow with you. There is a lot of development going on and we sense that with time this will become a leader in the market. Therefore, although our TonyBet sports review and TonyBet ratings 2018 are full of highs and lows, we know that this site is on an upward trend.
