Genting Bet Review

Sports & Betting Markets

At the time of writing this review, Gentingbet were offering betting on 27 different sports. Some bookmakers offer a handful more but the vast majority of customers will be more than happy with those available. You’ll obviously find events to bet on for sports such as football, tennis, horse racing, rugby, basketball, boxing and darts, but there are also events for UFC, cycling, Aussie rules, hurling and many other less popular sports. Overall, there is a good selection of sports available for customers.

Available sports at Gentingbet

  • American Football
  • Australian Rules
  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Boxing
  • Cricket
  • Cycling
  • Darts
  • Football
  • GAA Football
  • GAA Hurling
  • Golf

  • Motor Sports
  • Politics
  • Pool
  • Rugby League
  • Rugby Union
  • Snooker
  • Specials
  • Tennis
  • UFC
  • Virtuals
  • Volleyball

Gentingbet have also done well with the number of markets they offer on sporting events. There is a huge number of pre-match markets for football, as you would hope there would be, with popular leagues such as the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A having the most. There is also a good selection of markets for other sports such as tennis where you can bet on the match winner, the player to score the most aces, set betting and more.

After comparing the odds at Gentingbet for some high-profile football matches and a number of horse races, we found them to be very competitive compared to some of the more established bookmakers. We don’t expect many customers to have any issues with the odds on offer both pre-match and in-play.

In-Play Betting

Although the number of in-play markets available on Gentingbet is reasonable, we were a little disappointed with the number of in-play events. For example, at the time of writing this review, Gentingbet were accepting in-play bets on three different football matches whereas Paddy Power had 14 matches. However, it’s mainly events in lesser-known leagues and competitions that are missing and so you shouldn’t have any issues finding in-play events for the vast majority of football matches or for tennis, rugby and basketball etc.

All in-play events can be found via the in-play tab in the nav bar and you can filter the results by sport by clicking on the various icons.

In-play odds at Gentingbet seemed competitive against other bookmakers and as mentioned, the number of in-play markets is acceptable for the majority of sports.

Live Streaming

Unfortunately, Gentingbet do not currently offer a live streaming service. This is disappointing given that many of the top bookmakers provide this feature which is extremely popular with customers, especially for horse racing.

However, when betting in-play, you will be able to view a range of stats for the event which may help you make a more informed decision as to which bets to place. For example, for in-play football matches, you’ll be able to view stats such as the number of corners per team, the number of red & yellow cards, the number of substitutions and more.

Customer Service

Customer support at Gentingbet is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can connect with the support team either by email, telephone or via live chat. The support page is accessible via the main nav bar which will open a page listing all the contact methods. Connecting to a support agent via live chat can be done by clicking on the speech icon in the bottom right corner.

Gentingbet support are generally quite quick to reply to emails and when we tested, we were connected to a live chat agent within 30 seconds. Unfortunately, there is no help section containing frequently asked questions but as the support team are quick to reply, this shouldn’t be too much of an issue the majority of the time.

Gentingbet App

You can download the Gentingbet app for free on your mobile phone or tablet and it is available for both Android and iOS devices.

The Gentingbet app isn’t the best app out there compared to some other bookmaker apps but is far from terrible. Unlike the majority of other bookie apps which mimic the mobile version of the website almost identically, the gentingbet app looks slightly different. Firstly, there is no drop-down menu containing a list of sports. Instead, users can swipe left and right to choose a sport. We would definitely prefer a standard menu in the app but it’s not a huge problem.

Secondly, you can only access the sports betting side of Gentingbet via the app. If you wish to play casino games, you must either visit the mobile version of the website or download the Genting Casino app.

Overall, the Gentingbet app is slightly disappointing but it’s relatively easy to use and easy to place bets through. 

The Website

Usually, when visiting a bookmaker, you land on the main sportsbook and then have the option to navigate to the casino and other sections of the site. However, with Gentingbet, you are given the choice immediately. The homepage is a landing page giving visitors three options – The sportsbook, casino or live casino.

The sports betting section of Gentingbet is powered by FSBTech and so you may be familiar with the layout as it is used on various other bookmaker websites. The sidebar contains a list of sports, football coupons and some quick links to popular sections, current promotions are displayed in the carousel and a list of various in-play events are listed in the main content.

Navigation between sports and competitions is relatively simple and we had no problem finding the events we wanted when testing. One negative is that we found the site to be a little slow. There was some lag in pages loading fully and although this was not a huge issue, sites should really be loading quickly these days.

Customers at Gentingbet have the option to use the cash out function which allows them to settle their bets early for a predetermined return. Cash out is available on selected markets and sports and any bets which are eligible for cash out can be found by visiting the dedicated Cash Out page.

Online Casino

The Genting brand is synonymous with casinos and so you should expect a lot from their casino section. Genting casino is host to over 300 games from various game providers such as PlayTech, Novomatics, Red Tiger,IGT and most recently NetENT with the majority of games being online slots.

Gentingbet also provide a live casino where players can play a range of games such as blackjack and roulette with real-life casino dealers and croupiers. Other games featured in the live casino include Sic Bo, Side Bet City, Deal or No Deal, Monopoly Live, Dreamcatcher, Baccarat, Three Card Poker and Texas Hold’em.

Banking

If you’re looking for deposit & withdrawal methods other than the use of debit & credit cards then you’re not in luck as these are the only methods Gentingbet currently accept. The majority of people use a card to fund and withdraw from their accounts but we would like to see at least a few more options for players at Gentingbet. EWallets such as PayPal, Neteller and Skrill are commonly available at betting sites and we feel Gentingbet will be missing out on customers by not providing these.

Deposits via debit and credit cards are free of charge and are instant. Withdrawals are also without charge and usually reach your bank account within 2 – 5 days.

Account Settings

The Gentingbet website is only available in English currently but there are various other account settings such as changing the format of the odds displayed sitewide and deposit and withdrawal preferences which customers can personalise.

Odds Format: Customers can choose to view odds on Gentingbet in either fractional or decimal format. Changing the format of the odds can be done with the click of a button by clicking on ‘Odds Type’ at the bottom of the left sidebar. Doing so will update the odds sitewide until you change them again.

Responsible Gambling: Gentingbet provide customers with a number of options to set limits on their account.

Deposit Limits: Customers can set limits on how much they can deposit each day, week or month.

Loss Limits: Set a limit as to how much you can lose within an hour, day, week or month.

Max Wager: You’re able to limit the value of wagers you can make within a chosen time frame.

Single Bet Limit: Limit the maximum value of a single bet you can place through your Gentingbet account.

Session Duration: When set, you will be notified when you have been logged into your account for a specific amount of time.

Reality Check: Turn on notifications for when you have been playing games continuously for a specified amount of time.

Time Out: Take a break from Gentingbet for a period of 1 day, 7 days, 3 weeks or 6 weeks. You willnot have access to your account during this period.

Self Exclusion: Exclude yourself from Gentingbet products for a period ranging from 6 months to 60 months.

Summary

Overall, Gentingbet isn’t a bad bookmaker but there is a lot of room for improvement. The Gentingbet new customer offer is excellent and we have no complaints about that. Their website is also pretty good with easy navigation and attractive design. However, we would like to see the pages load a bit quicker and we would definitely like more deposit and withdrawal options made available to players.

That said, the Gentingbet welcome offer is enough of a reason to create an account and place a bet. If you don’t have an account yet, click the button below to register.

Pretty Cool

I joined in Jan 2017 and I like what I see from genting so far. Sometimes a new bookie does not have as much as some of the older ones but these guys do. It looks like they have put a lot of thought into it, the website is mega fast on desktop or mobile. I can find what I want easily enough and the odds aren't bad either. I don't regret giving them a try and I would recommend to others.

I am a new customer and so far I am happy. I signed up for sports betting but they also gave me some free casino chips when I joined and I played them and won. No problems withdrawing and also the quality of the game play was very good compared to other betting sites. So I will be keeping this app on my phone and will use them again.

Have to say I am happy so far with the odds and service. As you would expect the casino games are especially good but plenty of sport to bet on too so always something going on.

Pleasant Surprise

I didn't know Genting had sports betting online before I visited this site but based on other reviews I thought I would check them out. And I am glad I did because so far the service has been excellent, way better than some of the traditional "big name" bookies. If you haven't tried them yet I recommend you do.

So far so good Genting

I was on the lookout for a new bookmaker app after becoming frustrated with bad service and poor odds at Ladbrokes. Having read through the reviews on this site I decided to try a newer company and Genting seems to fit the bill as a big brand that I knew but who are new to sports betting. I felt that they would be putting in more effort to look after their customers as they try to grow to compete with the big boys. I am glad to say that so far it looks like I was right. I am older so not too tech savvy which means I do need to contact support now and again with questions which might seem obvious to them but are not to me. So far the service has been really good and I am very happy with them. If you are fed up with the same old rubbish from the same old betting sites then I would say vote with your feet, try someone else. Genting Bet is simply a much better service than I had before and I will not be going back.

After joining in January I decided to leave a review to help others. I have to admit I do not usually review unless it's a complaint but in this case it has been a pleasant surprise. I finally decided to leave Ladbrokes after years of awful service and low odds, so this time I thought I would stay away from the traditional high street four and try someone new. It has been a refreshing change. Genting Bet do not have as many markets as the bigger brands but their odds are very good especially on Premier League matches, plus if you play the odd casino game like I do, their product is actually one of the best around. Fast payouts as well, and a nice looking website. If you haven't tried them yet I would recommend it.

Disappointed

Tried this site for a few weeks after reading other comments but I was very disappointed the app was rubbish and on the website it was ok but not many offers or features compared to other sites. So I am going back to bet365 they're much better in my book.

Not Good

Had a bad experience they were happy takin my cash but when I tried to get my winnings suddenly they needed all this ID sending in, seriously I got a mortgage with less hassle than this. Looks like they just don't like to pay you when you win.

Gone Downhill

★☆☆☆☆
1 5 1
Had an account here about a year. to be fair they were good at first but really gone down hill recently. No offers any more at all and odds getting worse and worse. Really no point keeping account here any more when Betfair give you so much more value and better promotions. I'll be deleting the app off my phone and closing my account.
