BaltBet started its activities in 2003 as a bookmaker. The Russian-based betting site, which is largely specialized in the interactive betting and wagering industry, offers its services through an extensive network of land-based betting shops. Currently, the company sponsors several national sports federations, including the RFU, FHR and VFV.
General features of the site
BaltBet welcomes all its users on a Russian language interface. At first glance, the design of the site displays similar features to its counterparts. The upper part of the page has two distinct sections. The first one gathers different tabs about the betting line, live events, statistics, super express and its catch-all, applications, as well as the registration button. The other section helps you to quickly switch from one sport to another. The central part contains a list of current live events and the hottest matches on the line. At the bottom of the page you will find essential information about BaltBet, a link to the support service and a section with sports news. A video support describes the main registration methods, line widths, odds sizes and management techniques of the BaltBet game bank.
BaltBet is owned by the legal entity Santorini LLC. Since October 1, 2010, the web has been operating under license No. 16, issued by the Federal Tax Service of the Russian Federation. The document was renewed in April 2020 to ensure continuity of operations.
Website and mobile application
For mobile phone owners, BaltBet has developed a mobile version that is perfectly suited for small screens. It runs automatically when you enter the browser on your smartphone, once you are logged in. The program fully replicates the functionality of the main site. This means that you can bet on the result of a match, make a withdrawal request and ask for help from the support service. In addition, the official BaltBet website has links to download the mobile application, which is compatible with Android and iOS operating systems. Using the app, BaltBet offers you the opportunity to place live, pre-match and super express bets. Added to this is the ability to compile a selection of your favorite tournaments, activate promotional codes to get bonuses, sell a bet and order a payout.

The second alternative invites you to do it from the BaltBet website. You will need to provide your personal details, including your full name, date of birth, home address, telephone number and email address.

Bonuses and promotions
All registered members at BaltBet benefit from the permanent bonus program. While the operator does not offer a first deposit bonus, the customer receives points for every bet made. The value of the reward will depend on the odds margin and the type of bet selected. BaltBet awards points in increments of 20 rubles. In addition to this offer, the bookmaker displays a list of periodic promotions. The bonuses, mostly focused on sports events, are collected by the bookmaker’s analysts. For example, 90% of super prize winnings or 5% of a jackpot during a draw.
Betting and gaming offers
More than twenty disciplines, including e-sports, make up the BaltBet sports betting catalogue. Among the events to bet on are traditional sports such as football, tennis, hockey and Dota2, and exotic sports such as Australian football, golf, cricket, floorball and many more. The operator will not fail to surprise you, as there are also bets on social and political events on the platform.
The list of events is partly based on the popularity of the competition. In principle, BaltBet focuses its users on the main European football leagues and national sports. In total, there are more than 300 markets on the major events. There is a constant change in the margin and the size of the odds depending on the discipline. On the other hand, you have a wide selection of different types of bets. These include “Ordinar”, “Express”, “Super Express”, “Long Term Bet”, “Long Term Express”, “Live” and “System”. You are the only one who can decide which sport you want to play and what your predictions are. In return, BaltBet offers high odds, fast bet calculation and timely payouts. The live betting section is a real boon for live betting enthusiasts. Despite a smaller list compared to the pre-match list, the odds seem to be better spread out.
If you’re a casino fan, head to the left-hand side of the homepage and you’ll find the ‘Quick games’ section. Just below that are sections dedicated to roulette, baccarat and lottery games (Wheel of Fortune). For virtual game enthusiasts, you are spoilt for choice.
