Macau Slot, formerly known as SLOT, considers itself an official pioneer in the Asian sports betting industry. Since 1989, its activities were initially based on instant lottery management in Macau and Hong Kong. Although there is a strong predominance of Macau-based customers, there is a massive influx of punters from all over the world. In 1998, the site was able to operate football betting. In the following two years, it was able to secure a deal in the basketball market. Today, Macau Slot has two translation tools, Chinese and English.
Macau Slot was ranked as the first betting operator worldwide to acquire ISO 10002 certification. As a legal sports betting brand in the Macau Special Administrative Region, the establishment has obtained a national license and follows the regulations imposed by government legislation. Highlights include the implementation of a complaints management system in 2004, followed by the promotion of a responsible gambling policy in 2008. All personal data of subscribers is kept safe from malicious acts through the use of SSL encryption.
The betting establishment would like to point out that it has again obtained several quality accreditations. These include certification of the customer satisfaction management system and information security, both from the British Standard Institution.
General presentation of the site
At first glance, the Macau Slot website has a rather unfinished design. Despite this simplistic look, a very easy-to-use layout makes up for any lack of features and services. The layout is characterized by the two key bookmaker sections on the top panel, alongside the live betting section. There is also a dashboard and on the left side an individual betting slip. On the top right-hand side of the page are the registration and login buttons. In addition, the player can switch between the two languages of the site at his convenience.
Macau Slot launched its first mobile betting services in 2008. For the full satisfaction of users, Macau Slot has developed a native application, compatible with both Android and iOS operating systems. To download the program, simply scan the device-specific QR code. Highlights include access to live odds as well as the full range of football and basketball bets available.
Registration of new members
Creating an account with Macau Slot is a simple process. The first step is to go to the official website and click on the “Sign-up” tab. Before doing so, the operator requires a valid ID, after which a new window is displayed and the confirmation button is pressed. After entering his telephone details on the first page, the player must enter the verification code contained in the message sent by the bookmaker. The next step requires a photo of the ID card or passport. For the rest of the process, it will be necessary to fill in the fields with personal data, set a password and finalize the registration. It should be remembered that the account will be valid only after the information is verified.
Bonuses and promotions
Macau Slot does not offer a welcome bonus. Instead, the web has integrated the exclusive M-Slot offer. This is a free membership card awarded to all customers over the age of 18. As soon as the bookmaker approves the application and the new member joins, he or she immediately becomes a member of the programme. By accumulating points for each bet placed, the participant will receive exceptional prizes in exchange. Likewise, membership entitles the member to shopping and dining privileges at over 70 outlets in Macau. A recent testimonial revealed the existence of a no deposit bonus as well as a wide variety of promotions. Such a claim requires further investigation.
The betting offer
As the official Macau Slot page indicates, only the sportsbook is featured on the website. At a glance, the interface reveals a catalogue whose markets remain limited to football and basketball. You will find two separate directories at the top right of the screen. However, this small proportion will allow all fans to discover more than 18,000 betting possibilities on a multitude of matches in leagues, competitions and championships from all over the world. At the same time, there are more than 40 betting options, including Asian handicap, correct score, win-rule-win and over/under. For basketball, Point Spread, Odd/Even, All-up Win, Outrights, 2nd half and many more are part of the betting options. For more information, we invite you to scroll down to the relevant sections. Live betting fans will benefit from more events, as there will be the opportunity to watch over 80% of the matches broadcast. For smartphone and tablet owners, the live streaming function can be downloaded directly from the page.
Available payment methods
The Hong Kong Dollar (HKD) is the only form of currency accepted at Macau Slot. In order to start a financial transaction, the bookmaker offers the following alternatives:
- BNU bilateral transfer service ;
- ICBC cash betting centres ;
- eVouchers via Visa and MasterCard;
- Mobile payment systems (MJC) ;
- Bank transfer.
The service sets the minimum deposit limit from HKD 10 to HKD 500 and maximum from HKD 5,000 to HKD 250,000. These values change depending on the method selected. There are no limits on some options. For less risky operations, players betting from abroad are advised to consult the list of all conditions related to a supply or recovery of winnings beforehand. Further information will be given by clicking on the ‘Deposit/Withdrawal’ tab.
Macau Slot has dedicated the “Contact us” section to guide its customers in difficulty. Whatever the nature of the problem, a team is available to help them at any time. Depending on the case, they can send their request via the phone line, e-mail or the customer support centre. In general, the support team provides answers as soon as possible.
