KTO is one of the newest additions to the online betting market. Established in 2018, KTO is a new innovative bookie offering countless betting markets and a great number of sports. The bookie was created by industry professionals with a lot of experience behind them. The team understands what players want and need, so you can trust them to deliver a premium experience when playing at KTO.

Offering top-notch protection from Comodo, the bookie obviously pays much attention to player security. Aside from the large number of sports you can bet on, the odds at KTO are pretty competitive. There’s a great number of payment methods to choose from and a casino and live casino when you want to take a break from sports.

Company Details

KTO is jointly owned and operated by two companies. The first one is Bravalla B.V., a company registered and licensed under the laws of Curacao. The second is Payservices Ltd. which is registered in Malta.

Curacao eGaming is one of the biggest gambling license regulators, which means that KTO is a fully regulated and safe business. Thanks to the security software installed at the site and the industry standard RNG for the games, KTO provides a safe and secure gaming environment.

Bonuses and Promotions

A single bonus and no promotions would have been a more suitable title for this section. KTO offers only a welcome bonus for new punters and no promotions for regulars. There are a few in the casino, but when it comes to the sportsbook, you get nothing more than a welcome bonus.

Even worse, the welcome offer is not exactly special. Although KTO advertises it as “fantastic”, it’s nothing we haven’t seen before. New players get a 100% matching first deposit bonus up to €100. For a bookie that promises an innovative experience, the bonus is not innovative at all.

On the other hand, getting a cool €100 extra is not a bad way to start your journey at KTO. You need to wager the welcome bonus 12 times on single and combination bets at odds of 1.60 or higher before withdrawal. There’s a cap on the amount of money you can win with the bonus – it stands at 20 times the amount of the bonus.

At the moment, KTO doesn’t offer any other bonus or special promo and we really hope that will change in the near future.

Sports Markets

You’re going to be impressed by KTO’s amazing offer of sports and betting markets. For such a fresh bookie, KTO surely offers a larger than life collection of sports, including some rarities. Football is of course the largest market, so you can expect boosted odds on many matches. However, KTO also offers great odds on basketball and tennis matches, as well as rugby, American football, and eSports.

The eSports collection deserves special praise. You can place bets on CS: GO, DOTA 2, and other popular games. You can even bet on current and upcoming Mortal Kombat XL matches – that’s something you don’t see at other bookies.

If you’re not fond of betting on eSports, just check out KTO’s list. We’re sure you’ll find something to like.

Live betting is also available on different types of sports. Choose the separate Live Betting section and you’ll be presented with a vast number of choices and markets. You can track the matches on your slip with live statistics, but unfortunately, you don’t get live streaming. It’s a feature we hope the bookie adds as soon as possible.

Banking Options

You can deposit and withdraw funds from KTO using a large number of options. The ever-present Visa and MasterCard make an appearance here, and so do e-wallets such as Neteller, Neosurf, and Skrill. What’s unique about KTO’s banking department is that it accepts deposits made with some rare payment methods such as Creditos, Rapid, Interac, and MuchBetter.

You don’t get Maestro or PayPal, though. That will be seen as a minus by many punters.

The bookie boasts about fast withdrawals, offering your winnings on e-wallets in just 12 hours. That’s pretty fast. Credit and debit cards as well as bank transfers are significantly slower.

Customer Service

KTO cares for its customers, with a professional support team happy to answer all their questions. You can contact the bookie via e-mail, but your best bet is the live chat option. You can also call the team on the phone if you prefer it that way.

Unfortunately, the customer support service isn’t available 24/7. In Canada, you can contact it between 2 AM and 5 PM (EST), while for Europe, the working hours are 8 AM – 11 PM (CET).

Conclusion

KTO is certainly an innovative and promising bookie. There’s a great number of sports and betting markets and great odds, and the site runs well on desktop and mobile platforms.

However, it is let down by the lack of promotions and a few other quirks as well. The customer support is not available 24/7, and there are at least a few payment methods missing in the banking department. Live betting is available, but there’s no live streaming.

If the bookie manages to fix these problems as soon as possible, it will surely improve its standing on the market and possibly even become one of the greats.
