Licenced in the Curacao, FavBet offer an extensive number of betting opportunities.
There is no landing page and the website is far from flashy – but it serves its purpose. A blue, red and green theme is used and a conventional layout is followed. FavBet Sportsbook hosts an extensive statistics section which is powered by market leaders BetRadar. A wide range of sports are covered and customers have access to a solid amount of data from which they can make an informed decision.
The football coverage is just okay. At the time of review, there were odds for games from 15 different countries around the world. In England, the betting goes as far as League 2, with some non-league action such as the FA Trophy also priced up. The market depth for the football lags behind some of the top online firms, with just 43-46 additional bet types offered for each English Premier League games, five days before the matches were to be played.
The football odds are not wildly competitive. The English Premier League attracts the most betting interest from around the world and gains the most attention and therefore it is no surprise to see FavBet Sportsbook offer their most competitive books for games from this league. However, they still don’t match up to the industry elite. The matches are typically compiled to produce a 106-107% book. The odds on matches from other top European leagues are less competitive. Fayre from La Liga in Spain and Serie A in Italy are compiled to an average of 108.5%, whilst the lower competitions in England are even bigger, with League One working to 111% books.
The customer services department are available 24/7 and can be reached via email, live chat or Skype. Although they are advertised to be contactable around the clock, it does depend on what language customers are trying to converse with the employees in, as at certain times they do not have English speaking representatives available. In these instances, customers are advised to email and wait for a response.
FavBet are clearly an experienced bookmaker and it shows on their site. They have a solid customer service, reasonable number of markets and some nice concessions that aim to build customer loyalty. The website could do with a bit of a makeover but overall punters can’t go wrong having a FavBet account at their disposal.
