Sbobet Casino Review
Sbobet Casino set high standards with bold claims of awards and leading game quality, though this may be a pretty good bluff despite the poker face. The website is a bear to navigate, the game variety really isn’t there, and they provide only one bonus - for the sportsbook users. We came into it expecting great things, but ultimately we were let down. Well, if these guys aimed to create the most disgusting and inconvenient casino in the world, they kinda succeeded! At least their support is great and always ready to hear your complaints. You might have many of those.
- 11 languages;
- “Asian Operator of the Year” in 2009 and 2010;
- Live games;
- Mobile friendly;
- 24/7 support;
- Numerous contact options.
- The website itself is extremely inconvenient;
- The only promo refers to Sportsbook;
- Limited selection of games.
Sbobet Casino was established in 2004. It is licensed in Asia by the Government of the Republic of the Philippines and in Europe by the Isle of Man Government, and apparently it has won the “Asian Operator of the Year” award twice. We don’t know how it happened - as for us, this casino doesn’t deserve such a title.
At best the website is super bland, like filing your taxes bland. At worst this casino’s website design could be described as a psychological weapon to piss people off and make them lose their shit. For example, if you want to get access to the casino, you should click the Games tab. No, not the Classic Games - that one directs you to a completely different website called Waterbun. Overall, the site feels painfully inconvenient to browse through.
“Sbobet Casino is trying hard, but just seems to miss the mark.”
However, if you can withstand the aesthetic turmoil, you’ll find out that the site is protected by standard SSL 128 bit encryption technology.
Customer Support: Players can find 24/7 live chat, but it’s tucked away in tiny text at the bottom and the top of the page. Other options like phone and email are available too. Amazingly, you can also use Skype, WeChat and WhatsApp. But be careful - WeChat and WhatsApp will be useful only in case you speak Chinese.
Banking: The banking options are good as they offer bank wire, Neteller, credit cards and Skrill, just to name a few. Withdrawals are processed within 24 hours, but if you use bank transfer, it may take up to 5 working days for the casino to deal with your request.
Software and Game Variety
Sbobet Casino has fewer than 100 games produced by companies like NextGen Gaming, Nuworks, PariPlay and more, as well as several games developed in-house that you are not likely to find anywhere else. Anyway, the selection includes:
- Slots: Spanish Eyes, Sharknado, Doctor Love;
- Casino games: Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat;
- Scratch cards: The Big Match, Ocean Fortune, Dragon Scrolls;
- Dice games: Lucky Dice, Dice Wars, EzDice.
There are several more categories: Instant Win, Bingo and Keno, etc. But they offer only few games. One more thing - some of the games don't function. You can also check Racing and Sports subsections if you want.
Mobile and Live Gaming
The most redeeming quality of this casino is its mobile gaming compatibility. The design is much better and seems to offer the games people are looking for on the go.
Players will be able to play live games like Roulette, Sic Bo, and Baccarat here as well.
Bonuses and Promotions
The only promotion the casino offers is valid only for the sportsbook. An excellent way to insult and get rid of the casino players. Way to go. Not that you miss anything useful - the welcome bonus is a meager 15% match on first deposit up to €200. The wagering requirement is rather weird - 14 times the amount of your deposit. And you have to meet it within 60 days.
