Expekt was founded in 1999 by Swedish businessmen Christian Haupt and Conny Gesar. Those two were at the right place at the right time and company quickly rose to become the biggest bookmaker in Sweden. Since then, they expanded their influence across the Europe and are now popular in countries such as Germany, Norway and UK. They are known for great overall value they provide to ordinary bettors. Read what to expect from them in detailed Expekt review bellow.
Expekt Restricted Countries, Banking and Security
They accept customers from most countries. Only countries Expekt doesn't accept customers from are: China, Denmark, France, Honduras, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Palestine, Poland, Puerto Rico, Spain, Turkey and USA. They also support several languages and accept a number of different currencies.
Depending on your country of residence, you can choose one of the many deposit methods available at Expekt. Deposits are mostly free of charge. Small fee of 2% is charged only when you deposit less than 100 euros via Credit Card. They are instantly credited to your account.
Withdrawals are being double checked by their financial department but they claim that 95% of withdrawals are approved within 24 hours. Unfortunately for me, I didn't have large winnings when when I was using Expekt site, but withdrawals of smaller amounts ( up to 300 EUR) were processed instantly to my Neteller account. Of course, before you are able to get your first withdrawal approved, you must submit your documents (passport or driving license).
Expekt Sports Betting Bonuses
Although you are available to register from most countries in the world, their welcome bonus in not available for residents of all countries. But, for the countries where their welcome bonus is available, we can say it is a really decent one to take. On example, residents of Sweden and Norway can enjoy 500% welcome bonus up to 500 KR. Germans have 200% bonus up to 50 EUR, while guys from Finland can have 50 EUR free bet as welcome offer. Have a look at our special article how to redeem and play your welcome bonus.
Besides Welcome bonus, there are other types of promotions available not only to residents of selected countries. Opt in into their “Expekt Club” and you will receive 5 EUR bonus every week for placing 25 EUR on minimum odds of 1.8. If you have much bigger betting aspirations than 25 EUR per week, you can become a member of their VIP program. Being a member of VIP program means that you will be rewarded for your activity and loyalty, but also you will get special awards for referring a friend. Betting on multiples with 5 or more selections automatically triggers a bonus on your winnings. This bonus goes up to 100% on 16 or more selections in 1 betslip. In the end, if you download their app or visit mobile site of Expekt and place a bet on minimum odds 1.5, they will refund your stake up to 10 EUR if it loses.
Expekt Review – Sportsbook
The first thing you will notice when accessing their sportsbook is how functional, modern and user friendly it is. But lets put aside visual impressions. They offer events in more than 25 categories at all time. Swedish bookmakers are EU oriented meaning that they put accent of sports like football (soccer), tennis, basketball, but also have a good coverage of other European sports.
- Expekt Pre-match
Besides solid coverage of events, they have a very good coverage of markets. From Asian and European handicaps to cards, goalscorers and corners markets. Their maximum betting limits are medium compared to other bookmakers and maximum winnings on 1 betslip are 50 000 EUR. They have solid odds that vary on the importance of an event, somewhere on the level of other major European bookmakers.
- Expekt Live
My colleague used to work for their live betting service as live trader for years and was satisfied how professional their team is. They do have a solid coverage in live, but not enough personnel to cover as much as bet365 can. Yet, as I am European like Expekt is, I didn't find any of the events of my interest missing. Odds are of standard quality in live (mostly around 108% of margin).
Expekt Sportsbook Features
There are 2 features that you might find interesting. One is classic cashout option that can be use on any sport or betslip when it is available. For you that don't know what is cashout option: it is an option to take a part of your potential winnings before the match or more of them are finished. This is very useful when you have new information about some previously played match or you simply notice by watching some match that your team is not performing on a level you expected.
Second feature worth of mentioning is the Colossus. It is a part of their website where you can find different Jackpot tickets on sports betting. The biggest jackpot is called Colossus and it can bring you 5 million EUR.
Expekt Review Conclusion
This bookmaker belongs to the top class of European bookmakers. It attracts different types of bettors with their good overall quality. It is not designed for professional bettors, but more compatible to occasional players. Their welcome offers are quite attractive for users from certain countries. But, most important thing about them is that Expekt is a trustworthy bookmaker with very friendly customer service and fair attitude towards winning players.
