Great bet selection and strong support

Betsafe first opened its doors in January 2006 and immediately attracted attention, not least because of their promises of fast support. The original people behind - primarily Norwegians - put all their gaming industry experience into the development of the product, and this line continues after Betsafe was acquired by the Swedish Betsson Group in May 2011.

In October 2013, Betsson closed and customers (including their bonus and long-term games) were moved to Betsafe.

Bet selection

A wide variety of sports are covered. In addition to the compulsory ones such as football, handball, ice hockey, basketball and tennis, Betsafe also offer a very solid selection in especially winter sports, while there are also odds in slightly smaller but still important areas such as running, golf, baseball, cycling, athletics and motorsport. The Scandinavian roots are reflected in the offering, which also covers bandy and floorball. In addition, various special games such as Eurovision song contest and politics. In the range of games, the width is greater than the depth. In football, you go far down the leagues in certain selected countries (eg England, Sweden, Norway), but in many countries, you stop at the best row. This is not the place to bet in the Greek 3rd division for example.

Game Types

Betsafe offers quite a nice selection of game types at each event, where football is clearly the sport with the highest number of game variants. It does, however, depend on the league, and where the major leagues have a huge selection it is often a bit limited on the more secondary leagues. In a wide variety of football matches, there are more than 120 different games, ranging from over/under (with several different lines) to goal scorers and half-game games for player specials, but the matches also need some attention to come up in that hire. The "normal" number of games on a given match is typically 30-40. In ice hockey, there are often outcome and goal games in the individual periods, and generally the number of game types of 15-20 is on ice hockey matches. In tennis, there are usually 5-10 different games, including set games, over/under and handicaps.

Betsafe Odds

Betsafe has relatively good, but not exceptionally high theoretical repayments. In football, they tend to rank high, often even market-leading, on the favorite bet. The best payback is on football in the most profiled leagues, while the lesser-exposed leagues are at odds somewhat worse. Nowhere, however, is it not that low that they can be said to scratch the bottom. Within individual leagues (eg Champions League and international matches), the theoretical repayment is set far differently depending on which teams meet. The repayment here can vary as much as from 92% to 95%.

Betsafe Live Betting

Betsafe's live betting has been through a lot of development in the recent years, and today it stands as one of the most active - both in terms of gaming offerings and the range of game types. Previously, their live betting was limited to televised football, handball and tennis matches. Today they go far beyond this, and on live betting they eventually cross blades with the strongest of the competitors. The main focus of live events is based on football from all over the world, but matches from tennis, ice hockey, basketball, handball etc. is also quite nicely represented. The live betting section is built up with a great focus on user-friendliness, and with very few clicks it is possible to navigate between active events, listings of upcoming matches, etc. The selection of games at each match is nice, with various outcome games and special games. During the matches, the updating of odds is impeccable, and it is very rare for outcomes to be closed while the bookmaker adjusts the odds.


The foldable menu structure makes it easy to find the desired sport and league, and the page structure for each league gives a quick overview of possible game types when the league is selected. A running game coupon on the right side allows you to keep track of the composition of one's coupon, and it is easy and fast to place a bet.

Betsafe Mobile

If you visit Betsafe's mobile platform in your mobile browser, it can feel like a bit of an anticlimax if you know about their desktop platform. Unfortunately, there are some functions and features that have not been made available on mobile, and it is a bit unfortunate when the desktop platform is actually as functional as it is. However, Betsafe has an app that is significantly better than the mobile browser version, and this is the one we focus on. You can play in the same markets as on desktop (incl. Live betting) and you can access the same live-streamed events as on desktop if you have a balance in your account. Navigation is generally smooth and easy, and should you need help, live chat is also available in the app.


If you need assistance, you can contact via email and phone. Previously, Betsafe had a policy of receiving a bonus if no response was received within 15 minutes, and although this policy is no longer valid, response time is among the best in the industry. A 24-hour live chat is also available, where you can get in direct contact with a support staff within seconds. If you have used the live chat, you will automatically be sent an email with the content of that chat. A fine detail.


As a customer of Betsafe, you are greeted by one of the market's largest selection of games, and among the many odds that can be played within a week, you will in many cases be able to find the market's highest. If you are into live betting, Betsafe is also a must in the bookmaker portfolio, as their range of matches and game types on this front are among the very best in the market. So is their support, which is available around the clock and is often both fast and effective.
