LVBet is a traditional bookmaker that was established in 2016. The UK market is its primary focus, even though it accepts wagers from players from other countries as well. The website is available in English and Polish.
LVBet is owned and operated by Fairload Ltd., a company which is based in Malta which allows it to operate anywhere within the European Union. Marcin Sapinski is the CEO of the company. In addition to the licence issued by the authorities of Malta, LVBet’s home country, this bookmaker is also licenced by the UK Gambling Commission which means that it is fully legal for them to offer betting services to UK customers.
In addition to betting, LVBet also operates an online casino which features multiple games, including live casino games. LVBet adheres to the strict standards of eCOGRA, one of the most renowned testing agencies. They are the official sponsor of the 2017 Euro Volleyball in Poland.
Bonuses and Promotions
Newly registered punters can claim the Sports Welcome Package Bonus as soon as they make their first deposit. The minimum qualifying deposit is £10 and once you deposit you will receive a 10% bonus up to a maximum of £100, so if you wish to claim £100 in bonus, you’d have to deposit £1,000. The bonus amount can be used to place a multiple bet where each selection is at least 1/4 (1.25). The expected winnings from the wager will be boosted by 50%.
Punters have the right to decide whether they want to claim the bonus or not. If you wish to claim it you’ll need to select ‘Pick Bonus’ and then activate it once you’re ready to use the bonus. Your bonus wager needs to include at least 3 selections. The total odds have to be at least 3/2 or above. The wagering requirement for this bonus is two times the deposit amount, and the qualifying wagers have to be placed at evens (2.00) on 3-way markets. You are free to place the qualifying wagers either before, or after you claim the bonus, there’s no limit. The bonus amount has to be used within 30 days after it has been claimed.
In addition to the Sports Welcome Package, LVBet offers a range of other promotions. Most of the promotions are tied to certain events and thus are active only for a limited period of time. However, once a bonus expires the bookmaker introduces a new bonus, which covers another popular event. A promotion might be offered on bets placed on a certain competition (a European or World Championship) in a range of sports, or on all bets placed on an individual event, like a very popular boxing match or so.
LVBet also runs one permanent promotion where punters receive points for every real money wager. These points can be converted into real money. You will need to convert at least 200 LV points before you can convert them into cash. For 200 points you will get £2. There is no wagering requirement for converted LV points, once you convert them you can use the cash straightaway.
Sports Markets and Odds Value
LVBet boasts a betting offer that includes more than 40 categories, including virtually every sport that you can imagine. Not only is it possible to bet on football, rugby league, rugby union, cricket and other major sports, but you may also place wagers on handball events, beach volleyball, beach football, surfing and many more fringe sports. Moreover, LVBet also offers eSports betting. Several eSports are featured.
Moreover, LVBet also provides betting opportunities for events that are not connected to sports, such as politics and TV shows and films. If you select ‘Special bets’ you will see a range of unique betting options, some of which are only offered at LVBet. You can bet on who the next pope will be, or who will be casted as the next James Bond actor, and multiple other options.
The number of events that are currently offered is always shown. Football is the most popular sport and the football betting events significantly outnumber events of other sports. When you choose football you can further choose from a range of national and international events. When it comes to English football, all leagues are covered including the Isthmian Premier Division, Premier League 2 and the Professional Development League. In addition to individual matches, you can also place outright bets, like which team is going to win the Premier League, which team will finish bottom of the table and who will score most goals.
The number of markets for each individual match may vary between 150 and 200, especially if the match in question is part of a popular competition. The basic markets are called ‘primary’ and this category includes match winner, double chance, total goals, drawn no bet and both teams to score. Furthermore, you can also place handicap bets, 3-way handicap bets and Asian handicap. Halftime and fulltime betting are also available, and you can even place wagers on things like cards, corners as well as individual player statistics like whether a player will manage to score a goal or a two.
Adding a selection to the bet slip is done by clicking on the odds for that selection. Once you add multiple selections, you can choose what type of bet or bets you wish to place. You may place single bets on a selection or multiple singles on multiple selections, but you can also place a combination bet (acca), as well as a system bet.
