1xBet is an innovative Russian company for sport betting and other gambling games. This is the only one company in the market that has succeed in gathering more than 15 different gambling services in one single website only. In this gambling house you can place sport bets, play casino games, poker, backgammon, bingo, fantasy leagues, Forex trading, TV games, virtual sports lotteries, tote and many others. All of these games and offers are available for both: computer and Android, iOS and Java applications.
Bettingsite.biz presents you a detailed analysis of this gambling operator, as well as of all of its services.
This betting company was created in the middle of the first decade in XXI century and during its first years it used to deal only with offline betting activities among different countries in Russia, as well as in other countries from East Europe.
Today, 1xBet already has its own website that was, by the way, created in 2012 year and via which the betting operator manages to reach various markets from all around the world, including the one in Ghana, and the total number of the users in this Russian system is nearly half a million from which thousands are our fellow-countrymen.
According to the predictions in the industry, this betting platform will gain even a bigger popularity and will become one of the main leaders on the world market, because it offers a really wide range of services no other bookie is able to present. The only reason why this betting house has not left behind the competition is the slow advance in the marketing and advertising, but during the last couple of months and even years it has signed contracts for sponsorship with several serous players (one of them, for example, is the legendary football star Andrea Pirlo), as well as with football teams (one of the leading one among them is the Russian team Zenith) and even with whole championships (it was a really long time for the betting house to have been a sponsor for the Italian Series A). Besides, we cannot miss mentioning the fact that there is a kind of prejudice among the audience towards the Russian companies, but 1xBet, itself, has proven to be an trustworthy and reputable one, while all of those sponsorships with famous football players, teams and championships is a great guarantee for the security during the gambling process in the page, because such big names just wouldn’t afford to take the risk of signing a contract with a fraud company. Of course, the additional guarantee for your security is the international license the betting operator works with. The license is provided by the Cyprus-based gambling regulators.
Website and mobile application
1xBet website is easy enough to be used and at the same time, it looks quite nice. We say easy to be used, because everything here is arranged in the most logical way, but yet, during the first days of your usage you might find some difficulties or get a bit confused about the whole layout. Such confusion is due to the big choice in the website, as well as the constant flood of offers the betting house is typical about. Yet, there is no doubt that a big selection of services and offers is always a strong point for a gambling page, but sometimes, it might be confusing for the newest customers. Sooner or later, though, you will get used to the big variety of categories, banners, pages and games and it will be then, when you will be able to enjoy the betting company’s services at a full value.
To get used to faster the simple organization of the pages might help a lot. Using the central menu where all of the most important website categories are located would be a helpful approach, as well as taking a look at the drop down menu once in a while as here you are shown the top popular and significant pages for each of the categories.
The sport betting category is organized in the most traditional and intuitive way with a menu at the left side of your screen, all the events and markets in the central part and a bet slip location in the right side – this is how the pages in all the big bookmakers are practically arranged nowadays.
The desktop website version is accessible for playing directly from the browser, but at the same time this is the only bookie where you can download a desktop application, which, for instance, you can attach to your toolbar and thus, to always have an access to your favourite gambling platform with a single click. The desktop app also makes betting simpler and it saves you internet traffic. It comes to be in a help in some rare cases, when the page crashes, for instance, and you are not able to use it via your browser. We have never felt such difficulties, but we have found in internet some officially registered complains by users who did.
Besides, the gambling platform is completely compatible to almost all types of mobile devices thanks to its specially tailored applications for Android, iOS and Java. Thanks to them you can place a bet without a computer. While the first two apps are totally normal things for the bigger bookies (although most of the Ghanaian bookies still don’t offer such), the Java app is a rare thing in the industry. If this application does a good job for you, then 1xBet is by all means your bookmaker, no doubt. The entire mobile topic and everything about the mobile browser usage in betting, as well as the one of applications, accompanied with many interesting details is reviewed in our page http://bettingsite.biz/1xbet-app/
Offered sport types and events
For such a big betting company it is clear that it offers sport bets in their full range of types and kinds, as well as on the entire range of the leading sport disciplines such as football, tennis and etc. But since the gambling page is quite popular in Asia, too, here you will also find a big variety of bets on the popular sport types in this continent, such as digital sports which are quite famous (with an audience of several millions of users) in South Korea and China. Due to the Asian influence 1xBet pays some serious attention on sport types like table tennis, kick boxing, MMA and others in comparison to the other big bookies nowadays.
Of course, all of these do not mean that the most popular sport disciplines in the rest of the world, including in our country Ghana, are deprived of attention – there is nothing like that as the betting page has advanced in many directions and can brag about a record-breaking number of sport types in its program – more than 60 types to be clear. To list at least some of them, we will mention sport disciplines such as billiard, Celt football, cross fit, Lacrosse, poker, softball, surfing, triathlon and chess. You can see yourself the wide range of the sport types in this bookie and compare it to the rest of the biggest companies in the sphere. But what we can tell you is that 1xBet offers some really rare sport disciplines and a big part of them cannot be seen anywhere else.
This betting company’s main motto is to offer a big variety in every spectre of its portfolio. And we can see that this motto is put into force in sport betting, too, as here you are going to find a big number of events in each sport type category. After all, the total number of the events exceeds the level of 1 000 events per day and half of them are usually from the top sport types such as football, basketball, tennis, while the other half is divided between the rest of the sport types from the program. Yet, no other online betting platform in the industry can offer so many games like 1xBet can. It means that if you love diversifying your betting activity by going from the traditional matches such as those from the big European championships in football to something totally different and non-traditional, this Russian bookie will offer you the perfect options for the purpose.
Types of bets and odds
When we bet in this betting house, we can choose between up to 1 200 different markets per one football match and hundreds of matches for the rest of the events in the rest of the sport disciplines. You can think of yourself that here we have the luxury to be able to make a prediction for different aspects from the event if considering this big number of options. For example, when it comes to the penalties, we have at our disposal more than 10 different markets – for a penalty to be judged, to have a penalty that eventually becomes a score, to have a penalty, which though gets not scored, team 1 to get a penalty and to score, team 1 to get a penalty and miss it, and so on…
Naturally, such a big variety of markets is not available for all of the events, but even for the second and the third divisions we get more than 100 different markets, which is once again a quite satisfying selection.
Some of our favourite bet types in this gambling page are called Special bets and they are quite appreciated by the audience. Here we can also include bets for:
- Politics – who will win the elections in different countries
- Weather – for instance, a bet for a certain month from the current year to become a record winner as to the average temperature
- Space – for example, bets for the certain company that will send the first person to Mars
- Entertainment and show – Who will win an Oscar, who will win a certain music contest and etc
- Other special bet types – What the Bitcoin price will be on a certain day, who will get a Noble prize in the different categories and etc.
The long-term bets also deserve some special attention. They let you make a prediction not only on matches from the next phase, but also for the final classification in the end of the season or of the tournament. Currently, at the moment we are writing this review, the bookie provides bets for the final outcomes in the tournaments and championships from more than 20 sport types. In the long-term bet list we also see markets for the next coaches in some teams, the next team some players will sign contracts with and etc.
And here is where we get to the best part of this bookie’s portfolio – its odds. Indeed, the variety of markets and bet types is an important thing, but the odds are those that mainly thrill the biggest part of the audience. 1xBet is fully aware of this fact which is why the team has made it possible to optimize the entire business in a way to offer the best odds on the market. You will not be definitely able to find a bookie with higher odds in Ghana!
We are going to demonstrate you now the amazing level of these odds with one simple example by making a comparison between them and the ones from a big popular bookie. Let’s take one of the most expected matches from the group phase during the World Football Championship in Russia, the match between England and Belgium. Ok, the odd for the 1 symbol in the 1X2 market in 1xBet is 2.96 while in the other website it is 3.00 so in case of betting on a win for England the Russian bookie is left behind with a really small difference. This is though, at the expense of the giant differences in the other two symbols where 1xBet is a total winner. The Russian betting house offers 3.36 against 3.20 for the X symbol and 2.63 against 2.40 for the 2 symbol.
The profit margin this betting house has established is only 1.57. We also need to mention that the average margin in the football events here is a bit higher – about 2% – but this is still a better offer in comparison to the average level of the margin in football matches for the industry where we see 6-7%. The bets on the rest of the sport types such as American football, for example, are also at this same low level, while in sport disciplines like basketball, tennis and ice hockey thee margin is 3-4%. The other sport types such as handball, e-sports, rugby, volleyball and boxing are with the highest profit margins – nearly 5-6%.
Those of you who are well-informed about everything in the gambling industry understand the significance of these numbers, but for those of you who are not we will conclude that these are the absolute minimums in profit margins you can find on the market. Everything below this level means that the betting company is actually working out of pocket. Or in other words, the odds in this Russian gambling website are the as good as possible!
Due to the fact that this betting house has the richest pre-match program in the world, it can also brag about the richest live betting program, which usually reaches up to 1 000 matches you can bet on in real time at once. Also, the great thing here is that profit margin in the odds are the same or at least on a similar level to the one in the pre-match betting, which is another important fact especially when having in mind that many bookies offer sensitively lower odds when it comes to betting in real time.
The Live category is organized in almost the same way as the pre-match betting category is. The only difference is that in the right side of your screen you will not only the bet slip, but also a dynamic graphic that follows the progress of the events and even live videos directly from the event location. Yes, exactly, the 1xBet live service includes live streaming for more than one third of the available events in the category, while for the rest of them you will have dynamic graphic from which you can follow which team makes the attack right now, at what part from the field the ball is and etc.
Although this betting company offers the richest number of events with live streaming among all of the working bookies in Ghana, we need to mention that the most interesting matches, unfortunately, are not broadcasted. As to this we can say that the quantity is at the expense of the quality (and thank God this tendency is not put into force in the rest of the services in this betting operator). At least we have some graphics for the most significant sport events.
Both of these services are completely free of charge for the customers and in addition to them, the detailed statistics for the events are also provided. If the ball possession, the hits to the gate (correct and not correct), as well as the attacks each of the team makes seem to you important as information in your successful predictions, we can make you happy right now with the fact that this tool is also available in 1xBet. And here’s the best news – it is totally free of charge, too! The live statistics are quite often extras in today’s online betting platforms, but here we can check out even things like the atmosphere conditions – the temperature, the wind speed, is there any snow or rain and even the air humidity level – which, by the way, influence on the final outcome in sport meetings, no doubt.
In this betting house when you place a bet, you have two options:
- 1. Wait for the match from your bet slip to come to an end which is what you usually do in the sport betting pages
- 2. Close your bet before the end of the events from your bet slip
The second option is the so called Cash Out function which in this gambling website can be found by the name “selling your bet”. In general, the cash out function is indeed a method to sell your bet as the bookie provides you a certain amount of money to redeem and make it inactive. The amount of money you will receive for this redeeming depends on the progress of the bet till the moment you require cash out. As you can guess, if the team you placed your bet on is one goal up the amount of the money you will get is going to be bigger if it one goal behind. To be more specific, the amount the bookie will offer you depends on the current match odd. The common rule says that if the current odd of your selection is lower in comparison to the one you saw when you placed the bet, you will get more money in comparison to the bet amount in the beginning and vice versa.
How to sell my bet? The function for closing your bet can be activated from the right side of the page. It is where right next to the Bet Slip button there is another button called My Bets you need to click. When you do so the software will show on the screen all of the bets you have placed up to now and for those the function cash out is available there will be one more button called
Sell your bet slip. Press on this last button and choose one of these available options:
- 1. Sell your entire bet
- 2. Sell a certain part of the bet and the other one will be determined by the final outcome of the matches from your bet. You are the one who decided what part of your bet is sold via the cash out option and what to let be active till the end of the event.
1xBet New Customer Bonus
1xBet is an excellent choice for the punters who look for some free bets and bonuses as the betting page offers a wide range of promotions that are presented in the Promo category.
The main bonus welcomes the new customers with a really nice offer. This promotion is based on % and it will give you 100% of your first initial bonus (up to 100 EUR which is nearly 540 GHS).
This betting house has many other promotions you can meet via the Promo category, as well as in out article called 1xBet Bonuses where we have put on an analysis all of the offers clearly for you.
Toto Category – Prediction game
If you believe that guessing one or several matches is a quite easy task for you, you can test your knowledge in the Toto category where you can find 7 games with predictions. These games have jackpot that is progressing as an amount and where in case of the right prediction for each of the events (they can be between 5 and 15 depending on the specific game) will bring you the big prize which is up to 3 000 000 GHS.
Most of these games with predictions are directed to predicting football matches but there are also games for ice hockey, basketball and digital sports. The game with the digital sports offer the biggest jackpot amount, by the way, and it reaches up to 3 million of GHS. In this game you need to guess the final outcome of 15 FIFA e-games. In basketball you need to predict the final outcome of a certain quarter / half in 9 events, while in ice hockey your goal is to predict the correct scores in 5 events from ice hockey world.
The main football game with predictions is called Toto 15 and here the jackpot also reaches an amount of several million of GHS while the main task for you is to predict 15 symbols in the 1X2 market for football matches. Football is a similar game where, though, there are 14 matches in the program and Correct Score is distinguished by the fact that here you need to guess the correct scorers as the name says it, but in 9 football events.
The bet price in each of the games listed up to now is between 2 and 3 GHS and there is even one game where the participation is free of charge for all of the registered customers in this gambling page. This is 1XToto game. Although there are no fees for participation in this game, there are prizes and they might not be real money, but sound quite attractive – bonus points you can transfer into real bets and other options later.
1xBet Casino Games
The wide range of various possibilities to win some cash in 1xBet goes even further than the sport betting as the company has also some really great online casino games. It is a fact that you cannot find a bookie like this or a gambling platform where there are more than 1 000 matches per day, but in addition to them – an online casino with more than 1 200 games in total. Such a big variety is what 1xBet provides in its casino room.
The main massive of online casino games can be found in the Slots section. The name of the section shouldn’t mistake you, though as here not only slot games, but many other casino entertainment options are offered – such as video poker, roulette and Blackjack. Yet the slots are the dominating titles in the section and due to this reason the betting house has decided to call it that way. You can play more than 1 000 games only in this section, by the way! The betting operator has excellent relationships with the online casino software development industry and currently it works in collaboration with most of the biggest names here thanks to which the availability of so many casino titles is possible. Because after all, names like NetEnt, Amatic, Quickspin, Microgaming, Endorphina, Playson and Pragmatic Play have been always a guarantee for any game high quality, as well as for the good percentages in payments after a win. Besides these names, the gambling company includes many other games made by nearly 40-50 other different and smaller developers from the sphere. But since the software allows you to review only the games made by a certain developer, we strongly recommend you to start your casino game investigation with these names by entering them in the section search field. After that, you can, however, proceed with the next developers, too. One way or another it would take you a long time to test each of the games and probably you might not be even able to do so, because the bookie constantly adds some new offers.
The situation in the Live Casino section, though, is quite different as here the bonus is to play with a real dealer. There are article made by nearly 10 companies only among which, though, we see the reputable team of Evolution Gaming. Only by entering this page from this gambling platform you will become able to choose from more than 50 live games such as roulette, lucky wheel, Blackjack, Baccarat and various types of video poker. By pressing on any of the other companies you will see mainly similar games and probably some variety might be seen only in the PornHub online casino where the croupiers are half naked girls. This live casino is so popular among the audience that it has been separated in a specially tailored category within the main website menu.
The other games of a casino type you will see in the 1XGames category, in our personal opinion, are a bit left behind by the previous ones when it comes to quality, so we don’t actually recommend you this category.
1xBet has not one, but two poker rooms in total. However, we cannot say for any of them that it is on a very high level. Even though, by having in mind how small the choice of online poker rooms the market in Ghana is, this Russian bookmaker can do a great job for you especially if you want to play Texas Hold Em with low bets, because these tables are with comparatively good visit rate.
Unfortunately, only one of these poker rooms is compatible to Android and iOS and here only cash games on Texas Hold Em are arranged. It is the poker room that is more visited than the other one, but here the tables with buy-ins of more than $1 / $2 usually remain empty.
In the other room that is, by the way, called Legion Pker – there is a bigger choice of options, including tournaments, spin and go and sit and go games, but unfortunately, in this poker room you can play only via a computer. This poker room, though, worth it to be tested at least because of the daily freeroll tournaments where the punters can gain money without even paying a damn for an entrance fee, so we strongly recommend you to give it a try as long as you have the chance to do so.
What are the other gambling games you can play in 1xBet?
Sport betting, games with predictions, the casino sections and the two poker rooms represent only the main part of the offers 1xBet provides to the audience. These offers are complimented with the following extras:
