You acknowledge that underage gambling is an offence, Accordingly in opening an account with us, you warrant to us that you are at least 18 (eighteen) years of age and above the legal age for gambling in the jurisdiction in which you reside when using the Website Service.

What happens if I have a non-runner on my horse racing bet?

Single Bet:
If you have a non-runner, your bet is void and you receive your stake back. This does not apply if your bet was placed under Ante Post rules, in which case your bet will be settled as a loser.

Multiple Bets:
If you’ve placed a multiple bet such as a double, treble or Lucky 15, your bet will stand on the remaining selections. So a double becomes a single, a treble becomes a double, and so on.

What is a Patent Bet?

A Patent consists of seven bets on three selections in different events i.e 3 singles, 1 on each selection, 3 doubles and 1 treble. One or more selections must be successful to have a return. A £1/€1 patent costs £7/€7. You can double this if you place this as an each way bet.

How does Each Way betting work?

An Each Way bet is made up of 2 parts: the ‘Win’ and the ‘Place’.

Each part is an equal stake, e.g. a £1 Each Way bet will have £1 on the ‘Win’ and £1 on the ‘Place’ (a total stake of £2).

The ‘Win’ part of your bet is on your selection to win the event, and the ‘Place’ part is on your selection to finish either first or in one of the pre-determined places.

If your selection wins, both the ‘Win’ and ‘Place’ parts of your bet will pay out. But if your selection only places, you will lose the ‘Win’ part of your bet (and lose that part of the stake) but get paid out on the ‘Place’.

The odds for the ‘Place’ are given as a fraction of the odds for the ‘Win’ and will be displayed to you when you place your bet.

For horse racing, the ‘Place’ part of Each Way bets will be given the following Place terms:

Non-Handicap Races:

2 – 4 Runners Win Only
5 – 7 Runners 1/4 the Odds 1, 2
8 or more Runners 1/5 the Odds 1, 2, 3

Handicap Races:

2 – 4 Runners Win Only
5 – 7 Runners 1/4 the Odds 1, 2
8 – 11 Runners 1/5 the Odds 1, 2, 3
12 – 15 Runners 1/4 the Odds 1, 2, 3
16 or more Runners 1/4 the Odds 1, 2, 3, 4

How easy to the eye is the Genting Bet website?

Genting Bet uses a traditional sportsbook layout with a main products menu at the top with a sports menu on the left hand side. This sports menu is organised in three sections with a “Quick Links” section followed by a “Football Coupons” section and then the full sports list section underneath.

The middle section of the sports betting page shows all the upcoming events. By clicking in a sport in the left menu it will pull that sport into the middle section and show any live and upcoming events and at the bottom of the page you will find any leagues or events for that particular sport.

This layout gives a one page view of everything happening in a particular sport. It does mean that their can sometimes be a lot of information. The plus point is you will find what you need reasonably quickly.

The layout and colour scheme of events could be improved. You will find a list of matches in the football section with black text for odds sitting on a light grey box, and this is placed on a white background which can sometimes make it difficult to seperate one match from another.

In terms of the speed of the website, we did find some issues with loading some content elements.

From a content perspective, Genting Bet have a very good blog which is updated ona regualr basis. This can be found by clicking the BLOG link under the main menu. Football is a primary sport on the blog but you find a wide cross section of posts on other sports. They are always posting data and statistics when a major event occurs in any sport.

Does Genting Bet offer competitive odds or the best odds in a certain sport?

Being born out of a casino company Genting have a very clear understanding of odds margins and are one of the more attractive when it comes to sports betting online. They take the view that they want to attract many and regular players.

This allows them to reduce their sports betting margins. Odds on tennis are particularly solid and they are also becoming very competitive on odds in many of the top European football leagues.

How good is the market coverage and selection of bets on Genting Bet?

Although the odds offer on Football ids competitive, Genting Bet have some work to do to improve the market offering. They currently have between 40 to 60 markets available on top European league matches which is weak compared to some of the more well known online sportsbooks.

Tennis and basketball are big sports for Genting Bet and they have an updated list of tournaments and upcoming events available to bet on. There are always between 10-20 tournaments to choose from.

How good is In Play betting on Genting Bet?

In-play betting is a big part of the site and can be accessed via the red sub menu under the main menu. As with the main betting interface, the colour scheme is not that good but the functionality of their live and In-play interface is very solid once you enter a specific event.

Any sport that has a live is shown clearly and it is easy to move from one sport to another.

What selection of bonuses and re-occuring promotions does Genting Bet have?

Promotions that are ongoing at Genting Bet are quite limited with general promotions such as price boosts, cash out and (BOG) Best Odds Guaranteed being made available. Other than these you have the sign up offer which is a “no lose” first bet of £10

How easy is it to deposit and withdraw funds with an Genting Bet account?

It is simple enough to deposit and withdraw from your genting Bet account. However, the options for deposits and withdrawals are quite limited and the only options available are debit and credit cards, the Skrill e-wallet and via a deposit at a Genting casino.

How friendly and fast is the Genting Bet customer service and live chat service?

Very good service answered within 10 seconds. We posed an important question about ringfencing funds.(please see the Customer Trust Deposits section)

The agent took time to escalate the query which was very good and although it took a minute to get the answer, it was good to see that the operator did the right thing in clarifying this important question.

About Genting Bet

Genting Bet has been spawned from the parent company Genting Group who are synonymous with the development of land based casinos and leisure resorts. These land based casinos remain the cornerstone of the Genting group with the very first of these being developed way back in the late 1960’s.

It is this longevity and background which makes the online sportsbook and casino an attractive option for punters and players who are looking for a recognised and highly reputable brand.

Genting has 47 land baserd casinos in the UK alone but also many more worldwide. As the market has developed, Genting have now made a large investment in online betting entertainment and have certainly made a good start in terms of the set up of their site.

More promotional offers are needed, but their Premier League outright offer is one that we have not seen on other bookmaking sites, and will be attractive to soccer punters.

General Information

If you place a £25 bet on the outright winner then Genting will give you a free £2 bet every week to play with. Naturally, there is now a shift towards online in today’s digital age, and although they were by no means the first to establish a digital presence, Genting are taking this side of the business very seriously and look to have a strategy to reward players with very good offers without the massive “play through” restrictions that other companies have on their promotional offers. Even at their online casino, the emphasis is clearly on live play and making the player experience the key to providing fun and high quality entertainment. Live dealers are available on a huge range of card and table games while you can also enjoy traditional slots and other games on desktop, tablet or mobile.

The sportsbook section is in danger of being forgotten by the casino traditionalists, however Genting are providing a top class list of sports markets which is growing all the time. The Genting Group may be synonymous with land based casinos and that is still a major focus, but they are concentrating more and more on online play and sports betting. We expect the next year to be very interesting for the punter who joins Genting Bet. You can join their online revolution TODAY!

Genting Bet betting experience

Odds format & betting margin

Genting Bet are probably in the mid level when it comes to odds value. You are still likely to see other brands better on the horse racing side, although Genting Bet are very competitive on football and tennis odds. Decimal & Fractional Explained: Decimal odds are quite straightforward to understand, as all you need to do is take the decimal number, lets say 11.0 and deduct 1 which would give you odds of 10/1. Fractional odds are exactly as its says on the tin…..a fraction. So lets take a price which is odds on which might be 2/5 or two fifths. So If you put a bet on of 1 pound, you will receive back your one pound stake plus two fifths, so a total of £1.40 Just a quick note that to change odds on the home page at Genting Bet, you need to go to the bottom left corner at the bottom of the main menu.
