Asian sports betting giant BetEast has plans to expand beyond Asia and has taken its first step by opening a new site aptly called BetEast.eu.
Sports betting is a billion-dollar industry and everyone wants a piece of the pie. BetEast already has a good piece of it in its Asian operations, but it wants a bigger one. This is why it is opening its European operations with BetEast.eu.
Targeted at a European market, BetEast.eu was launched just this year with a Curacao gaming license. The site is all about its sportsbook offerings and has it front and center on its site. Using the UltraPlay software, the site delivers all of the betting options that players would like. BetEast.eu has started to make a name in Europe as it becomes the official sponsor for Swansea City AFC in the English Premier League.
BetEast.eu Pros & Cons
- Accepts Bitcoin
- Clean interface
- A lot of betting options
- Sports betting focus
- No bonus
- Limited slots and live dealer options
- No live chat support
- Still needs polish
The site’s main offering is its sportsbook. Using a very accurate sportsbook interface, bettors can place wagers on a wide variety of sporting events. They can even bet on eSports events. BetEast.eu also allows for in-play betting. If you get bored with sports, there are some other options, too. Players can enjoy live dealer games or slot games on the site. Fortunately, the site accepts Bitcoin.
Software Features & Graphics
BetEast.eu is focused on making Bitcoin sports betting easy. The opening page of the site is the sportsbook and the design choices are based on showing it off. The site is clear enough to make all the options visible and it looks good. However, the site could still need a little polish, but the UltraPlay platform makes the overall experience above average.
When making an account for BetEast.eu, the site asks for a lot of information. This is mostly traced to the fact that it uses fiat currency transactions as much as Bitcoin ones. Additionally, as a sportsbook, it will need to follow certain know-your-customer laws. The site will request for your name, address, birthdate, and some specifics. After that, your account will be made. Bitcoin accounts, however, only requires a username, a password, and an email address.
Withdrawal & Deposits
BetEast.eu supports several payment methods. Whether you prefer to use credit cards or e-wallets, you’ll be able to successfully deposit and withdraw funds. But these are for real money only. Bitcoin is also accepted here, fortunately. This means all your payment transactions will be processed at a much lesser time.
Bonuses & Promotions
The site currently has no bonuses. However, there is a promotion for the site called Mystery Jackpot. Players who bet a certain amount can have a chance to get mystery jackpots despite losing. Silver jackpots are for bets worth €50 to €150. Gold jackpots are for €250 to €500 bets. Finally, platinum jackpots are for €1,000 to €2,500 bets. The amount that people can win varies from time to time.
The main option for support is either via email or by phone. Contacting the admins via email will have a response shortly after, though a call to support will have an instant answer. Phone support is not always available, unfortunately.
