MobileBet sprung on to the scene in 2014 as a sister site to ComeOn (so give yourself a pat on the back if you recognised the website’s style) and over the last couple of years have proved to be a fairly decent little bookmaker indeed.
If truth be told, we don’t know an awful lost about this company other than that they have made some really promising strides moving forward. Don’t be fooled by the name either, in that whilst they may appear to be a mobile bookmaker, you can also access the site via your desktop as well, making them compliable on a multitude of devices.
Please note - MobileBet have withdrawn from the UK market as of September 2019. UK customers will no longer be able to register or place bets after this date. This review is no longer actively maintained.
Loyalty Scheme – MobileBet Points
One thing that you need to aware at MobileBet is their point’s structure. Here you will be able to earn points for every pound that you wager at the sportsbook. As you earn more points you will be able to move through the rankings and in turn exchange the points for better prizes. The gifts will range from free bets, bonuses and prizes, with the higher priced items becoming more lucrative as you move through.
You exchange your points in the MobileBet Shop. Here you’ll be able to see all the bonuses that are available along will how many points they will cost you to buy.
How Do You Earn Points?
So, there are seven different ways that you can earn MobileBet Points and here they are:
- Logging in – Yes, it’s that easy, you can get 25 points for simply logging in each day.
- Depositing – Each deposit of €10, or your currency equivalent (about £9), that you make earns 50 points.
- Playing with real money – This just means betting with funds other than bonus credit or free bets.
- Making your first withdrawal – It’s always nice to actually withdraw money from time to time. The first withdrawal that you make gets you 1000 points.
- Registering your mobile phone – By verifying your mobile phone number you’ll bag 500 points. Only the first number you register will get you points so you can’t add every number in your phone book…. Sadly.
- Email verification – As with your mobile you’ll also get points for verifying your email address, only 100 points for this though.
- Sending approved documents – It’s a fairly standard admin exercise to ask you for documents such as copies of your ID. Each one that you send it will earn you 1000 points.
MobileBet don’t actually run an awful lot of additional promotions on site, which is a shame. The ones that are available to you will likely be short-term offers, often ones that target holidays, such as Christmas, Easter, Halloween and major sporting events. To stay up to date on exactly what’s happening on the site, we recommend that you head on over to their promotions section and go through the offers that are available to you.
The first thing that really struck us at MobileBet is how in-depth the site is for a company that is still relatively young. The games and markets on offer can keep with pretty much any in the industry, and whilst a large emphasis of the sportsbook is placed on football and horse racing, bettors for other sports, especially US based sports, will have more than enough to bet on.
The live betting section is an area that they have clearly targeted as something that they want to be awesome in; and they’ve managed to do exactly that. Once again they cover a huge range of games and the market coverage is excellent.
Aside from that, the sportsbook is very simple to use and easy to navigate about. The design was pleasing to use and they certainly don’t feel like a bookmaker that is only a couple of years old. Over the next couple of years it should be really interesting to see how far MobileBet progress and to see if they can start knocking on the doors of some of the bigger brands in the industry.
Most normal payment methods accepted including Skrill, Paysafecard, Neteller, Apple Pay, Entropay and, of course, debit cards. The only notable exception is PayPal.
- Minimum Deposit – The minimum deposit is £8 for all deposit methods.
- Minimum Withdrawal – Minimum withdrawal is £10 for all methods.
- Withdrawal Time – Ewallets within 24 hours, and debit cards take 2 to 7 business days.
- Fees – Our one criticism is that they do charge fee’s on smaller deposits. For deposits of £200 or less there is a 2.5% fee on debit card deposits, but this is waived for deposits of over £200. Skrill, Neteller and Paysafecard all attract a fee of 5%. There are two free withdrawals per 30 day period with subsequent withdrawals charged approximately £4.
- Bonus Exclusions – Most ewallets excluded from welcome bonus (eg: Skrill, Neteller etc..)
