Having a lot of options at your disposal is a great thing, but it can complicate matters further in some cases. For example, if you’re presented with about 30 options for a new sportsbook or casino, you might have trouble finding the ideal candidate. In general, we only need a few options to choose what suits us best, but considering the growth of the online gambling industry, that’s not the case with bookies and casinos.

Finding a reputable bookmaker is hard these days with all the scam sites who are only out there to rob you of your money. But, we’re here to make things easier for you. If you’re looking for a bookie that has a wide range of betting options, hundreds of markets, a simple and attractive website design and odds that challenge those provided by far bigger fish in the industry, PWR.bet is your choice.

Company Details

PWR.bet is a bookmaker and casino owned and operated by EveryMatrix Ltd., a company based in London with its development offices in Bucharest, Romania. EveryMatrix is a well-known name in the online gambling industry, with their products regularly available in many European online casinos. EveryMatrix has recently entered sportsbook territory with PWR.bet, which promises great action and surprises for sports fans.

The sportsbook is of course based on EveryMatrix’s popular OddsMatrix platform, which powers numerous bookies across Europe. The platform offers advanced and modern integration options and management systems that ranks it pretty high on the list of best sportsbook platforms. It’s a flexible and cheap yet high-end solution that includes more than 50 sports and over 2,000 betting markets. We’re sure that’s music to a punter’s ears.

Click on PWR.bet’s sports tab and you’ll be instantly presented to a long list of options in a neat package. The list of sports is to the left, the central part of the site is reserved for popular current or upcoming events, while the bet slip is to the right. Right above them, you can find the language switcher (a total of 12 with English as the default), the Login and Register buttons, as well as the Live Chat feature and a link to PWR.bet’s mobile app.

PWR.bet is licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority, which means it’s a safe and secure place for your betting endeavours.

Sports Markets and Odds Value

When it comes to sports and markets, PWR.bet certainly doesn’t lack a thing. The website features all the popular sports in the UK such as football and horse racing, as well as a wide range of sports popular all over the world such as tennis and basketball. Fighting, athletics, cricket, American football, golf, handball, ice hockey, darts, and even e-sports are included in this promising bookie’s comprehensive offer.

With more than a thousand sports markets to pick from, you can spend hours on PWR.bet until you complete your bet slip, which is exactly what the bookie’s hoping for. Of course, the bigger the sport, the more markets you’ll find. Take the Premier League for example – besides the usual 1×2 bet type, every match from every round of the Premier League allows you to wager in markets such as Total Goals, Handicap, Number of Goals per half, First Corner, Both Teams to Score, and other markets where you can put your punting skills to the test.

Horse racing, which is the backbone of British punting, is represented by a number of current and future events and several markets which should scratch your punting itch. Most of the races are limited to the Outright winner market, but as they draw near, more markets should emerge.

From what we’ve seen, PWR.bet’s odds are competitive enough, which is another factor that goes in the bookie’s favour.

Banking Options

Although PWR.bet’s list of banking options includes secure and well-known options such as MasterCard, Visa, Neteller, and Skrill, we definitely feel that there’s a lot of space for improvement in this area. With only 6 banking options (the aforementioned 4 plus Trustly and Paysafe Card) in a time when casinos and bookies are starting to add Bitcoin to the list of payment options, PWR.bet is clearly lacking the power it needs to propel itself to the top.

The minimum deposit amount is €10, while the maximum depends on your preferred payment method. The minimum withdrawal is the same (€10), and there’s no maximum limit listed on the site. Under anti money laundering and fraud prevention laws, PWR.bet doesn’t allow withdrawals for 24 hours after you make a deposit.

Then there’s the problem of transaction fees, which, although tiny, aren’t going to win the bookie many fans.

Customer Service

Any existing customers at PWR.bet can resolve their issues or problems with the site through the helpful live online chat placed in the right bottom and top corners of the site. There’s no customer support phone listed, but there is a customer support email ([email protected]) where you can ask anything you want. Both options have largely been replaced by the live chat feature nowadays which is a much more convenient way of contacting the provider.

Conclusion

PWR.bet is an exciting rookie in the world of online betting which has many things going its way. The selection of sports and markets is impressive, the odds are competitive enough, and the layout of the site is very easy to navigate. In a market where many bookies try to cram as much content as possible on the site, PWR.bet’s layout is a breath of fresh air.

If PWR.bet’s obviously talented team fixes the lack of payment methods and fine tunes their product, it won’t be long before the bookie is on every punter’s lips.
