ReadytoBet

READYtoBET is one of the newest arrivals to the online sports betting scene, which is still gathering pace on many fronts, and that alone makes it an attractive place to play at. So how good this new bookmaker actually is? And can it match the established big names in any department?

READYtoBET is one of the newest arrivals to the online sports betting scene, which is still gathering pace on many fronts, and that alone makes it an attractive place to play at. So how good this new bookmaker actually is? And can it match the established big names in any department?

ReadytoBet - The Pros

First of all, let's talk a bit about the odds READYtoBET are offering – after all, many bookies that target the recreational sector seem to think that they can slash them to no end. With these guys, we're a bit split actually – when it comes to the bigger matches and markets, it seems to us that they are actually right where we would like them to be, while they could certainly do slightly better when it comes to some of the smaller markets. Nonetheless, it's a job done reasonably well as far as we're concerned.

We also quite like the fairly modern and intuitive interface. We'll be the first to admit that it does look rather clunky at first glance, but the actual performance is more than satisfactory and we definitely appreciate its simplicity.

It'd be rather surprising for an online bookie to not offer mobile betting in this day and age, but we nonetheless do feel obliged to say that READYtoBET have implemented that feature well, with apps available both for Android and Apple devices.

Finally, we must say that the blog READYtoBET are running on their site is one of the most informative ones we've ever seen at an online bookie. Not only is it updated on a regular basis, but the previews it contains can give you a very nice rundown of the analysed matches. It's naturally debatable whether it's something punters are going to use, but we do have to appreciate the effort.

The Cons

The main thing that we simply have to point out when talking about the negatives is that we'd definitely like to see more sports and side-markets being offered. It's not surprising that READYtoBET are nowhere near Bet365 in that regard – almost nobody is – but they pale even in comparison with many others, which simply isn't great. Strangely enough, this only seems to be a problem with pre-match betting – there's nothing to complain about on this front when it comes to in-play offers. If football is your thing, you probably aren't going to notice anything, but don't expect to see things like betting on politics anytime soon.

We'd also very much like to see READYtoBET offering more in terms of promotions, at least as far as sports betting is concerned. At the time of writing, there was nothing else apart from the fairly standard welcome bonus of up to €100. With many others coming up with regular bonuses and innovative offers, that really is nothing to write home about.

Summary

To sum things up, the guys at READYtoBET still have a long way to go if they are to come anywhere close to the current heavy-hitters of the online sports betting industry. It's always nice to see a new bookie pop up and there certainly is plenty of potential here, but, as of now, there doesn't seem to be anything that would make READYtoBET stand out. If you're looking for a run-of-the-mill bookie that may improve with time, then go ahead and give these guys a go. Just don't expect to see anything unique – all the necessary services are there and you won't have to open separate accounts in order to have some fun with the casino games, but there isn't all that much above that.
