IMPORTANT UPDATE - BETSAFE APP NO LONGER AVAILABLE IN UK
Betsafe have ceased offering their gambling services to people located in Great Britain.
The app is still available to open and browse, but previous registered users are now unable to login and anyone from the UK trying to register for a new account will be blocked from doing so.
users opening the app from the UK will now be presented with the following message in the top banner bar:
“PLEASE NOTE THAT WE HAVE INFORMED THE GAMBLING COMMISSION OF GREAT BRITAIN THAT, WITH EFFECT FROM 10:00HRS ON 21 OCTOBER 2020, BML GROUP LIMITED HAS CEASED PROVIDING GAMBLING SERVICES TO PLAYERS LOCATED IN GREAT BRITAIN.”
You can check out plenty of apps that are fully functional within the UK from our best betting apps list located on our homepage. However, if you are still curious on what people in the UK are missing out on, you can read below to see what the Betsafe app has to offer to other regions.
The Betsafe brand belongs to the Swedish gaming giants Betsson. It has been offering online betting services across the globe since 2016 and has grown to include casino, poker and virtual Sports in to their experience.
The mobile service used to be readily available throughout the UK. However, for whatever reason, the decision was made to pull the plug on the UK service and to focus on other territories. The service became unavailable to UK residents back in October 2020.
Betsafe App Review
We gave the Betsafe app a thorough testing to see what it was capable of. We have to say, the results surprised us. One of the first things to hit us was the range of events on offer.
Everything is covered here, from sports including MMA and speedway to TV shows such as the Eurovision Song Contest.
There are also vast numbers of casino games available in-app to keep users entertained, if sports betting isn’t their thing.
There’s a clean user interface which makes use of great graphics and large imagery. This looks the part, providing a great platform for most people’s mobile betting needs.
The user experience here is slick, with the full range of markets literally available within just a couple of taps. The white and red on black colour scheme makes the content very readable.
Betsafe App Features
Of course, the famous cash out feature is available with the Betsafe app and it is clearly labelled next to each market it is available on.
Cash out is not available on every market. For example bets placed using free bets and system bets will not have a cash out amount offered on them.
A dedicated in-play section makes it nice and easy to locate the live events. Smart visuals are used within each event to provide up-to-date statistics and information on the in-play action.
Theres an impressive amount of information here to look at. Users can choose to view a digital representation of the playing surface with animations displaying what is actually happening.
They can also choose to view a wide range of statistics on the players or teams that all helps to receive a better picture of the likely outcomes.
There’s more information here than what most bookmakers are prepared to give, making it a very good choice for the punters who like to delve deep in to the finer elements of play.
Live streaming is another handy features and adds to the whole in-play experience. It can also act as a blessing to those who want to watch live events while on the move.
If a live stream is available, it will be featured on the events page as an option in the top menu bar.
In order to be able to view the live streams, the user is required to be logged in and to have funds in their account.
Betsafe have jumped on the Bet Builder bus to add this as one of their latest features on the app.
Users can now bundle together two to six markets from the same football match to create their own bespoke bet.
As a selection is made, it falls in to the Bet Builder bet slip. when another selection is made, that too falls in to the Bet Builder bet slip and the odds instantly update to reflect the double. This process repeats as more selections are added.
The amount of markets available is above the average. We were particularly pleased to see player card markets being available.
Another way to lose track of time is by taking on the huge range of casino games on the app. These options are just a quick link away from the main menu on Android and iPhone devices.
Everything is on offer here from video slots to more traditional games such as blackjack and poker. They are all accessible from within the one app, which makes for a truly seamless betting experience.
Video slots seem to be the most popular here, games such as Gonzo’s Quest and Drive: Multiplier Mayhem dominate the most played charts. But in reality, with a wide range of games on offer, there is bound to be something for most tastes.
The Betsafe app really is an all-encompassing betting option. It is slick and easy to navigate, with striking visuals and clear menus.
It performs when it comes to depth of sports markets and the range of casino games available in-app is equally impressive.
It’s a great app offering, and one definitely worth a download to those people in accepted regions. Unfortunately, the UK is not one of them.
