GentingBet Review

gentingbetWhile they may be more familiar as one of the longest serving casino providers in the world, GentingBet also have a sportsbook which has proved to be very popular since it was first launched. It’s also a site that has evolved since inception and we have seen that with the introduction of new offers and innovative promos that all customers can enjoy.

There are other areas of the site that have developed in recent times too so we’ll start our review with one of those sectors.

Available Sports

The list of available sporting markets at GentingBet is one that has developed in recent months to become one of the bigger ones out there. Here is that list in full:

American Football, Athletics, Aussie Rules Football, Baseball, Basketball, Boxing, MMA, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, Football, GAA, Golf, Greyhound Racing, Handball, Horse Racing, Ice Hockey, Motor Sports, Pool, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker, Tennis, Volleyball.

Only the most obscure niches are therefore missing as Genting have filled all the gaps as far as popular sports are concerned. A growing list of eSports is also provided and there is also a selection of bets in the novelty markets including politics and entertainment.


GentingBet aren’t on any of the main odds comparison sites so prospective customers would need to do some checks of their own. We have found them to be strong in football, as most bookies are, but they can often be on their own with the highest prices in some of the side betting for this sport.

Horse racing is competitive too and you can use a best odds guarantee scheme for all UK and Irish meetings while overall, this is a bookie where you will rarely, if ever, be out of step with other companies in terms of pricing.


Our new customers can get an exclusive deal with GentingBet whereby they can obtain first bet insurance up to £25.00. This is opposed to the standard £10.00 deal quoted by the bookmaker so this more than doubles the value of this welcome promotion.

Sign up via the link and register your details before making your first bet. Check all terms and conditions in order to meet the qualifying requirements and if that bet doesn’t land, you can claim a refund up to that limit of £25.00.

Genting have also become more active in terms of ongoing promotions for regular customers and, while these may be subject to change, they tend to come in to coincide with the big sporting events. For example, at the start of the 2017/18 Premier League football season you could stake on the outright winner and collect free bets every time they won a match up to the end of the year.

Similarly, for the US PGA golf tournament, a bet in the outright markets would lead to some free bets when your selection sank a birdie. These are interesting and creative offers so keep checking our news feeds to find out more as new deals come in.

Banking and Customer Service

Players at GentingBet can deposit to and withdraw from their account using Skrill or any of the major debit or credit cards. It’s a limited list but hopefully there is at least one option there for players to get on board and to access their account. The good news is that no fees apply to deposits or withdrawals.

Genting have a live chat operator at the head of their customer service section but you have to be logged in to your account in order to access this. There is a dedicated email address at [email protected] which will also cover any sportsbook queries. In general, the support options can be a little hard to find so perhaps both of these areas could be addressed by this operator in the future.


Aside from those very minor issues with banking and customer service, the experience at GentingBet is a very positive one. Unlike some casino providers who decide to open up a sportsbook, this hasn’t come as an afterthought and a lot of attention has gone into giving players a great experience.

A strong choice of markets, coupled with good odds is a real plus point for those looking to stay here in the long term while our exclusive, increased welcome deal, together with some good value ongoing promos just adds to the great things that you’ll find here.
