LiveBet Sportsbook Review
LiveBet has established itself in 2017 as a bookmaker offering over 10,000 events across many of the most popular sports worldwide, in addition to Virtual Sports, Poker and Casino. Regulated in Curacao, LiveBet currently has some pretty poor reviews online relating to customers service and long withdrawal times and limits.
The LiveBet Sports dashboard is busy to say the least, with a mass of sports and markets available right on the homepage. To make things a little clearer, you can navigate via Event View, Dashboard view, or even build your own multi view to quickly find events your interested in. There’s actually quite a limited number of sports to bet on, with Football and Tennis available, in addition to the eSports DOTA, Counter Strike and E-Ice Hockey. No Horse Racing is available, and this begs a question as to why the site feels so busy when there isn’t that much to place bets on. They do have a good range of bet types to place however, where sports bettors can dabble with singles, Accas, System and Chain bets till their heart’s content. Also not ideal is the fact that LiveBet doesn’t currently offer any sports based promotions, limiting its appeal and attraction to new or existing customers.
The Live tab on LiveBet takes you to another busy dashboard of all events currently taking place around the world right now. Real-time updating odds, along with a few useful statistics and an engaging visual, ensure that this area of the site actually works quite well. Live stream is not available at the present time on LiveBet, so if this is something you’re after you’ll have to look elsewhere.
Seemingly following a similar theme, the casino on LiveBet is pretty reasonable, but definitely nothing to shout about overall. They host a range of different Slots, Jackpots, Scratchcards and more, all seemingly developed over 5 years ago however – some of the newer and most popular games need to be implemented here. There is a nice deposit match bonus if slots are your thing, and also the Live Casino area is hosted by Evolution gaming, and therefore is top-notch. Choose from Blackjack, Poker, Baccarat and Roulette, playing against the croupier in real time. There are also a range of slot based and poker tournaments to get competitive with, if you’re this type of player.
Usability of the Site
LiveBet has a reasonable user interface that, in part, does consider how the customer might like to use its products and navigate the site. However, in many respects, its not quite there, with sometime clunky drop-down menus, and blank areas of the browser showing regularly. The Sportsbook is definitely too cluttered in general, with a lot of information and drop-downs leading to a confusing vibe. The logo, branding and graphics again are not quite there, its almost like the site has been developed and left a few years ago and is starting to look a little tired. There is a dedicated Live Chat function on LiveBet, in addition to a range of deposit and withdrawal options across card, bank transfer and E Wallets.
To conclude, LiveBet just seems to be missing a spark across all areas that can be found on some of todays most popular leading online bookmakers. The overall feel of the site is outdated, the navigate irritating at times, and the Sportsbook quite cluttered. In future, hopefully we can see these issues ironed out, along with newer casino games from the likes of NetEnt, Sportsbook Promotions, and even some cool extras like price boosts or customer competitions.
