This is a very interesting betting company that excites it's players with great odds, amazing coverage and numerous other sports betting features. 1XBET is the biggest Russian bookmaker with over 1000 betting shops spread across Russia. They were founded in 2007 and are registered in Cyprus. In last couple of years they started strong international expansion and now have around 500 000 registered online users. In 1XBET review bellow you will see why they generate such success.
1XBET Restricted Countries, Banking and Security
1XBET restricted countries: USA. Players from all other countries are welcome to register an account and play at any of their products. They even bypass IP blocking imposed by some countries by providing mirror sites when such case occurs. They fight against any type of censorship or government imposed extortion and they are taking very seriously accessibility to the widest possible audience. After all, it is bettor's responsibility to know and follow his country's gambling laws.
The fact that they have a website available in 51 different languages is just the tip of an iceberg we will reveal in this review. 1XBET is, considering payment methods, the most impressive online bookmaker by far. They have 215 available payment methods from which there is 5 types of Bank Cards, 36 different E-wallets, 17 cryptocurrencies, prepaid cards, payments by mobile phone etc..
Withdrawals can be made by one of 125 available methods. If you want to bet from any part of the world you can transfer your money in ANY possible way except for receiving cash straight in your hands.
Considering account security, not from online thieves but from 1XBET itself, they can be trusted enough for normal payments, usual betting. We have conducted an extensive online research about what other users say about them dealing with customers, winnings and similar. At first, we saw a number of complaints about withdrawals not being processed, so decided to dig deeper to see what is the problem as it was suspicious that there is more than a dozen complaints about almost the same case.
The truth is the next, 1XBET is one of the first bookmakers that comes online with odds on most events. Most of these events they publish first are very minor leagues, some of them even suspicious for match fixing. Then, when some other major bookmaker like Asians, Pinnacle or some betting exchange comes online with odds that are very much different than odds on 1XBET, there is an army of online bettors trying to exploit wrong odds making sure bets, fixed matches, huge drops in odds and similar. When such “punter” is exposed, 1XBET is trying to get rid of that client on a polite way.
But the response they get from those “punters” is that they go complaining all over the internet claiming 1XBET is a scam company trying to force 1XBET to let them do whatever they want, bet on what ever they want and give them money. That is the case with 80% of these complaints on most bookmakers as these “punters” count on that they can hurt a bookmaker's reputation more than it would cost a bookmaker to payout the man.
1XBET Sports Betting Bonuses
1XBET has a very developed bonus system that offers promotions on most of their products. Considering sports betting, there are several important promos to mention. First one is their welcome bonus on sports betting. Register a new account on 1XBET and receive a Welcome Bonus matching your 1st deposit up to 100 EUR (or currency equivalent). It is available to residents of all countries and it must be rolled over 5 times on multiples with at least 3 selections with odds of minimum 1.4 per selection.
There are also “Lucky Friday” and “X2 Wednesday” that are similar to their welcome offer in terms of amounts and rollover. You just simply have to make a deposit during Friday and/or Wednesday and they will match it with a bonus amount up to 100 EUR.
When you complete their welcome offer, you can open up their esports bonus calendar. 1XBET offers a new bonus every day usually in a form of cash back money on your losses in a specific esport/league. As 1XBET offers among the best odds in esports, this promotion makes even more appealing.
There are several other offers that change from time to time considering promotions on accumulators, betting via Telegram and similar. It is also nice that 1XBET rewards you with a special bonus on your birthday.
1XBET Review – Sportsbook
Now we have come to the highlight of this bookmaker, the thing they are known for. 1XBET has a sportsbook that not only matches the quality of best sportsbooks in the industry, we think it overshadows them. They come online with odds among the first bookmakers in the world. Actually, in most cases them and Marathonbet are the first to offer events.
- 1XBET Pre-match
1XBET has the widest coverage in the world offering events 99% of other bookmakers do not offer. This stands for almost any sport. At the same time they have more markets than any other bookmaker and their odds are as high as 2-3% of margin. For comparison purpose lets just say that Bet365 has average margin of 6-7%. But the difference goes deeper as 1XBET stays on 2-3% of margin on minor leagues and sports while Bet365 rises their margin up to 10% on lower leagues.
- 1XBET Live
Another thing 1XBET's sportsbook is well known for is the coverage of live events. They offer more events than 99% of other bookmakers, they have slightly better odds than the rest of them and they offer more markets in live. This last includes special markets such as minute markets. The offer is so extensive that they even have live Cockfighting.
1XBET Sportsbook Features
Besides “standard” features like cashout, live stream, results page they have a couple of other great features worth of mentioning. First is called “Bet Constructor” and with it you can make sort of virtual bets by picking any 2 teams from major events of the day. Once you pick on Example France (from France vs. Colombia match) and Germany (form Germany vs. Spain match) odds automatically load for a virtual head to head of France vs. Germany as you can see on the picture bellow.
“Advanced bets” is a feature that gives you the opportunity to place bets with potential winnings from still open bets. So if you ran out of money and still want to place some bets this is a possible solution for you. In case that open bet loses, your advance bets will be canceled. 1XBET also has a betting exchange where you can bet against other people, but it doesn't receive much liquidity at the time being.
1XBET Review Conclusion
The conclusion is simple. 1XBET is a type of bookmaker that offers the best overall betting experience. It has all of the best qualities people search for in betting. The great number of payment methods, languages, mirror sites are designed to remove obstacles for players all around the globe and their supreme sportsbook with a lot of features and side products will keep any betting fan entertained and satisfied for a long time. The only downside is that they are not prepared to take very large amounts, they are built for recreational players.
