TopBet are a bookmaker with a focus on mainland Europe in terms of their sports but they are North American friendly and that’s good news for anyone in Canada looking for a new sign up. In terms of offers, choice of markets and general value, they are an excellent option for those customers who are based here so let’s take a look at what they have to offer.
New players here can get an introductory bonus worth up to a massive $1,000 and that can come as a 100% match on the initial credit that you make when you sign up for a new account. The 100% level is available for those funding with Bitcoin while for anyone paying by Visa or Mastercard, it reduces to 50%.
There is a 5x rollover with this and while it naturally needs a bigger deposit to claim the top amount, it’s worth aiming high if you can.
Check the promotions page for full terms and conditions surrounding this offer but at that level, it’s a very generous way to start things off.
Deposit and Withdrawal Methods
Currently, the payment options at TopBet are fairly small and these could certainly be expanded in the future. While we all have access to debit and credit cards, the only other option is Bitcoin and while it can be a good idea for a bookmaker to open up to the Cryptocurrency community, this remains a very niche area.
Hopefully in the future there will be more options but if you’re happy to play with Mastercard and / or Visa then you’ll be fine.
At the time of writing – April 2017 – there are no existing offers beyond that admittedly huge welcome deal but this could also be subject to change so keep logging into your account and check the news feeds for any developments on this.
The website at TopBet is certainly a very attractive one although it is a little basic with sparse information. The list of sports is in a logical place on the left hand side of the home page while the centre of that page is reserved for promotional material.
At the bottom, the help options can also be easily accessed so overall it is an attractive and logical site, even if it is a little bit basic.
When you locate those customer service options at the bottom of the home page, the help button will give you a toll free number along with the support email. Also included here is a list of frequently asked questions and this is very extensive and logically laid out.
Therefore, with the possible absence of a live chat operator, TopBet give you all the main options you need to keep in touch while the service is proving to be fast, friendly and effective at the same time.
The markets at TopBet are clearly geared up to a European and North American market and that is evidenced by the following list.
American Football, Basketball, Hockey, Baseball, Golf, Tennis, Soccer, MMA and Boxing.
The obvious downside is the fact that this is quite a small list and is one of the reasons why TopBet aren’t better known worldwide but at least we have our core sports to bet on.In addition, there are regular, non-sports markets which can come from the worlds of politics and entertainment while the bookmaker also has a separate section within those sports where you can fill out a parlay card – perfect for Canadian players.
Odds comparison sites are not picking up TopBet at present but when you check all their prices against competitors then it is all very favourable. Remember that while they have a limited set of markets, that can be an advantage in certain areas and they’ve worked hard to give some of the better odds – certainly for a North American friendly bookie.
So, for ongoing value beyond that welcome offer, this is a good place to hang out in the long term.
In Play Options
TopBet’s live betting button is very prominent at the top left of the home page and when you click on this link, current events come up. The good news is that the bookmaker promises live coverage of all NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL games and you should also be able to get some college basketball and football as well.
Like the rest of the operation, the choice of markets is quite limited but you can get the popular North American sports from the limited list and you will see some very competitive prices here too.
Mobile Betting and App
Topbet has a mobile site that gets solid reviews across the web and it’s certainly useful to have if you are looking to get involved with those in play betting markets. It’s quick and easy to download and like the main site, it’s fairly basic in its design so it will load quickly when you need it and it is simple to navigate your way around.
An app has also been introduced in recent times and this can be downloaded via the usual channels. It’s also fast and simple to access so you have the choice of this or the mobile site – or you can use both to smooth along the live betting process.
Casino, Poker and Bingo
There is a casino at TopBet and, although it isn’t the main focus of their operation, there is a good choice starting with standard slots and 3D slots which have been gathered together from a wide set of software providers. There is a good selection of variants for table games such as roulette and blackjack too although there are no live casino dealers at present.
There isn’t a separate poker site or a bingo portal either but there are video poker games at the standard casino so overall there is some good choice if you’re a sportsbook player who likes the slots and tables on an occasional basis.Play Now
