The Betting Veteran has been all around the world. He has wagered in China, Romania, America and France. No matter where in the world he goes, he always finds a way to win. At the moment, he has been finding American online sportsbooks more to his taste. This is mainly because he went to visit his brother-in-law in Cleveland, so it was an American online sportsbook or nothing. While there, he found GTBets and took them for a spin.
GTBets are a relatively new competitor in the world of online bookmakers. This is mainly because it is only fairly recently that online sportsbooks have been legal in certain states in America. With the legislation changing, online bookmakers have become more and more prevalent. GTBets were actually established in 2011, but it is only recently that they have started to grow at a rapid rate, mainly due to more states being able to access their site.
What bonuses do GTBets offer?
The bonus that GTBets have on offer to new players is an excellent one. Their welcome bonus is paid out over the first two deposits that are made into your account. You can actually get up to $1,000 as a welcome bonus from GTBets. The first deposit that you make will reward you with a 100% matched bet of up to $500. The second deposit that you make will reward you with a 50% matched bet of up to $500. There is a six times wagering requirement for any bonus and deposit you receive, so if you receive the full $1,000, then you will have deposited $1,500, which gives a total of $2,500. This means that you will need to wager $15,000 in order to be able to make withdrawals.
GTBets also offer a refer a friend bonus. This means that for every friend you refer, you will receive a 50% matched bet of their first deposit, up to a maximum of $400. This bonus has a wagering requirement of five times the bonus on it. This means that if you receive the full $400, you will need to wager $2,000 before you can make a withdrawal.
What sports are available to bet on in GTBets?
GTBets have one of the smallest selections around when it comes to sports available. While they offer the most popular choices, they do miss out on some quite popular sports such as snooker and horse racing. They do cover football, basketball and American football though.
- In total, GTBets have 15 sports available
What features do GTBets offer?
One of the first features that GTBets offer is the ability to use e-wallets to make deposits and withdrawals. E-wallets are a faster and more secure way of handling financial transactions. This means that GTBets allow for withdrawals to be made faster than other online sportsbooks that do not offer e-wallet support. This is an excellent feature as it gives gamblers the opportunity to withdraw their money at a faster rate than with more traditional methods.
They do not offer the ability to view games on a live stream, but they do show live scores as the game is ongoing. This is because they offer in-play betting, and as such the live scores are needed to be able to conduct this properly.
GTBets mobile review
The GTBets mobile site can be best described as straight to the point. As soon as you open the page, it loads up at a very fast rate. This fast loading time is matched by the response time, as when you click on a link, it is ready for you almost before you have moved your finger away from the screen. The different sports are navigated to by using a scrollbar at the top of the page. Unlike other scrollbars, it also offers the ability to move one space at a time by using arrows. This makes it a much more functional scrollbar than those on other sites and improves the navigation of GTBets immeasurably. There are also a range of in-play bets located on the homepage, or if there are no games currently running, it has a selection of games that are about to start.
There is also a menu button at the top left of the screen that allows you to navigate to other sections of the site with relative ease. If you want to check out the different promotions or get in contact with GTBets, then the menu button makes it easy to do so. The colours all stick to the black and orange colour scheme of GTBets, which can become a little hard on the eyes after a while, but it is very clear, which makes it very easy to read, if a little bit garish.
Overall, the GTBets mobile site is well put together. It is easy to navigate, offers a wide range of ways to move between the pages you like, and has a lightning fast response time. This makes it, on the whole, a site that is to be praised. If you enjoy placing wagers on your mobile device, then GT Bets make it very easy for you to do so.
Betting Veteran pays a visit
The Betting Veteran was very excited when he first opened up GTBets. The easy navigation combined with the incredibly fast response time meant that he was instantly enamoured with GTBets. He took a look around the site, and despite it being quite stripped back in terms of features, it still offered enough for him to get his teeth into. The Betting Veteran was slightly disappointed at there being just a day’s worth of games for him to bet on. Sometimes, the Betting Veteran likes to set up an accumulator over a week’s worth of games. The lack of live streams was another disappointment to him, as well as the small amount of sports on offer, but the incredible welcome bonus soon put a smile back on his face.
The GTBets site is very easy to start using. It is easy to navigate around, and apart from the garish colours, it is not unpleasant to look at. However, for every two positive features, there is a negative to go with it. Firstly, it has a huge welcome bonus and an excellent referral bonus for players. However, GTBets also have a small number of sports available to gamblers when compared to other online sportsbooks. Secondly, they allow for e-wallets to be used, but there is no live streams of games.
Overall, GTBets is not a bad website. They certainly try to look after customers in a positive way, and there is nothing suspicious about their behaviour. However, they do need to increase the number of features and sports that they offer before they can compete with other more established online sportsbooks.
