The betting and gambling market
According to a recent analysis by RETABet, the sports betting section has a rather mediocre but well-structured content. In total, there are about twenty disciplines with betting options (single, double, triple, open, combined, accumulative…). There is a certain predominance of football, as this section has the largest number of events on the list. Despite a small number of markets, the predictions remain open on a multitude of leagues in various leagues. On the other hand, the directory includes tennis tournaments focusing on the Grand Slam or Challenger, among others, and covers most of the creditable events. There are also bets on basketball, which are very successful thanks to the NBA, ACB or Dollarliga competitions. In addition to horse racing and e-sports markets, the web also offers betting on rare sports such as padel. The live betting section offers several advantages, including live text, a TV streaming service and a calendar to track players’ favorites.
The casino section is located on the top menu of the page. The area features over 200 themed slot machines with a wide selection of jackpot titles. A search engine is used to enhance the exploration of favorite games, albeit with a very limited number of filters. The lack of demo play and video poker is a weakness of the bookmaker.
