We are going to present you a refreshment among already established bookmakers, which slowly but surely finds its place on the market. It is Bethard that is licensed in Malta and oriented toward the European market.
What makes Bethard different from other bookmakers is fact that it managed to enlist one of best footballers in the world. It is Swedish player Zlatan Ibrahimovic who recently became the front face of the company and its team member.
That should guarantee certain level of service and we are going to see will the things move into that direction in the future.
In next couple of paragraphs we will go through what the bookmaker currently offers to its customers, and we can say right now that is has rich offer of sports bets.
Bethard – Sign Up Offer
Sign Up Offer has become standard way for rewarding new customers. In accordance with that Bethard offers to its new players Sign Up Offer of 100% up to €100. The bonus is valid for sports betting, Casino and Live Casino. To earn the bonus it is necessary to create the user account.

In order to fulfil conditions to withdraw the bonus it is necessary to turnover the bonus and deposit at least four times on sports bets or at least 20 times for Casino and Live Casino.
Minimal odds to complete the turnover requirement for sports betting are 1.80.
Bethard offers a large number of sports bets. All important sports that might be interesting for punters are present, and by that the most popular leagues. Besides major leagues Bethard offers betting on lower ranked leagues, even regional ones that some major bookmakers don’t keep in their offer.
The diversity of sports is indeed huge and it is hard to find something that Bethard doesn’t have. Besides sports betting there is option to play on virtual sports, live betting and various Casino games.
We need to stress very large span of options for over/under bets, as well as assortment of special options like yellow/red cards, corner kicks or even combined bets “halftime/fulltime +0/U2.5.”
Regarding the odds Bethard is definitely a commendable bookmaker. Given that it is relatively new in the business the odds are respectfully high.
To illustrate this we will take Champions League match between Real Madrid and Juventus.
The odds were such that the bookmaker profit was just 1.3%, which puts Bethard in the very top of industry in terms of payout. The same can be said for odds for other sports and for example we noticed a profit margin of just 2.3% for certain tennis matches, which is also an excellent results given that in this case the payout was among top five bookmakers.
The bookmaker pays a fair deal of attention to live betting. There is large number of options with fast refreshment of data, which combined together puts the experienced at very high level. In one case there were even 37 different options to bet on a single tennis match, which is definitely a respectable figure.
On top of it, statistic data are available and that makes easier to make timely decision, while number of sports on which you can bet is indeed huge.
At the moment when we wrote the text there were over 100 sport events on which was possible to make live bets.
We have said that you can use the Welcome Bonus to play any of large choice of Casino Games; Slot, Blackjack, Roulette and many others and on top of it there is Live Casino and several virtual sports. It is fact that this segment can be much better.
Promotions for Casino games could be more diverse, while addition of Bingo and/or Lotto wouldn’t hurt either. There is no doubt that development team will be busy in the coming period with improvement and refreshment of the offer in order to make Bethard more competitive with popular bookmakers. Regardless of some drawbacks, Bethard has wide offer and by that you can surely find something for yourself.
Registration with Bethard is mostly a standard procedure that we have already seen with many other bookmakers or Internet sites. The procedure takes four steps to create your user account after which you can make the first deposit and ask for the Welcome Bonus intended for new customers.
At the moment Bethard is available in six languages with strong emphasis on Scandinavian area since it is translated in Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish languages. Of course, there is version in English, as well as one aimed at German speaking customers.
Deposit and Withdrawal
Good things we have said about width of sports bets offer and value of odds cannot be transferred to banking options. Unfortunately, there is relatively small number of available options, although all major transfer methods are available. Still, in time when a very large number of options are available the offered methods should be more diverse. It would be useful if there is information about time needed to complete certain transactions, as well as information about limits or taxes.
Right now Bethard supports Neteller, PaySafeCard, Visa, Zimpler, Skrill, MasterCard and Trustly.
Bethard webpage is available in combination of yellow and black colours, which with language options tells us about the bookmaker’s business orientation. All available sports are listed in vertical menu on the left hand side, while the main menu is standardly located at the top of page. On the right hand side is window reserved for commercials, bet slip and statistical data.
Navigation through the site is simple and fast, and no one should have trouble to find what is looking for is he/she ever visited another bookmaker’ site before
Mobile Webpage and App
Bethard still hasn’t developed the mobile app but it is questionable is it really necessary given that mobile version of the webpage is very good. It is very important the almost all options available for PC optimised webpage are available for one designed for smartphones, including use of different languages, which is not present in many other bookmakers once you switch from PC to mobile version of the site.
Since the bookmaker is in fact new in the business there is nothing special to report of, besides incredible Zlatan Ibrahimovic. According to available information Zlatan is not just the front face but is also a part of the team, which is in any case a good sign for this newcomer to bookmakers’ guild. Under this we mean it is a sign of very serious and above all ambitious bookmaker.
All in all, we are positively surprised with the newcomer. There is large choice of bets, odds are incredible, user support is good, and the Welcome Bonus is rather high. .
Bethard has several drawbacks but we shouldn’t forget the odds, which are above average. We can conclude with recommendation that you should definitely give Bethard a try, as the overall picture is very good.
