These vary from Match Winner, Team to Score First, Draw No Bet, Half-Time/Full-Time, Total Goals (O/U), Handicap, Double Chance, Both Teams to Score, Correct Score and loads more.
Welcome Bonus & Promotions:
There isn’t a huge list of available promotions for customers at Genting Bet, however players will be able to redeem a sort of welcome bonus in effect which is called £10 free insurance bet. How this works is that once you have made your first bet, where the odds are 2.0 or higher, and if it loses; Genting Bet has your back and will credit your account with a £10 free bet.
After you have used up your welcome bonus, there isn’t really that much available to keep you busy, unless horse racing is your thing, because what Genting Bet will do is provide you with the best odds guaranteed on all UK and Irish horse racing as well as accumulator insurance for your football accas, so all in all – not that bad.
There are plenty of sports floating around on Genting Bet’s in-play console, such as Football, Baseball, Cricket, Volleyball, Rugby League, Boxing and depending on when you check much more.
We were quite happy with their in-play betting markets as players had a good range to choose from, especially if football is your main interest, as you could find Half-Time/Full-Time, Total Goals Exact, Match Winner, Team to Score First, Draw No Bet, Double Chance, Handicaps, Time of First Goal and plenty of others.

Genting Bet has included a 24 hour a day, 7 days a week support team that is very well informed of their products and services. To speak to a member of staff, you have a range of different ways to choose from, such as live chat, email and telephone. We recommend using their live chat feature as you are connected to a member of the team almost immediately.
We were very happy with what the Malaysian super casino turned sportsbook, Genting Bet were providing to their customers. Their range of sports markets was definitely above average and paired with their in-play console; it isn’t hard to see why more and more players are making the switch. We would like to see them improve their offers and promotions; however, as this was something that we felt was really holding them back when compared to bigger names in the industry. Everything else we looked at was exceptionally pleasant, though, and we definitely recommend you try out Genting Bet and have provided a link below which you can use to sign up and create an account today.
