TonyBet Free Bet & Review
Back in 2009, the online sports betting scene was graced with the arrival of TonyBet. Though at the time it wasn’t realised that TonyBet would go on to become one of the largest names in the business within the next 8 years but this is how history has unfolded.
TonyBet provides their customers with more than just a standard betting website, however, and players can get involved in some of the most technologically advanced live games, poker rooms, lottery and even a casino. In September, 2016 TonyBet was purchased by the Swedish business and gambling tycoons named Betsson and they still remain as the parent company to this day.
Website – Layout & Interface:
The website at TonyBet is definitely one of the nicer ones that we have looked at and they have done a great job in keeping the colour scheme true to their brand colours. The main bulk of the site is made up of an off-white background and sat on that is a white body which is basically where all of the important information you are viewing is going to appear.
The TonyBet logo has been sat in the top left hand corner, where you would expect, and on the other side of the page you will find the login or signup section, as well as a drop down menu which you can click to choose which language you want the site displayed in, out of 7 choices.
Underneath is a menu which travels horizontally across the page and houses links to various sections, such as in-play, casino, poker and live casino. There is also a link for players who are keen to enjoy TonyBet from their mobiles, to do so; as well as a link to the current promotions.
Players will find the complete list of sporting markets featured down the side of the homepage and just above it is a handy links section which has been made of some of the more popular searched markets within the site.
On the right hand side of the page is where you will locate your own bet slip, this will grow as you add your bets to it and will calculate any earnings that you may receive in the process. It’s definitely worth noting that TonyBet has done well reducing adverts on the page and apart from the rolling banner at the top, there is nothing else to be found.
Whilst TonyBet doesn’t have the largest list of sporting markets, the sports that are featured are done so very well and players will find great coverage of Basketball, Tennis, Football, Baseball, Ice Hockey, American Football, Formula 1, Rugby Union, Rugby League, Politics, Aussie Rules, Cricket, Specials, MMA, Boxing, eSports and Golf.
We actually went a bit further and inspected some of the betting markets for the UK’s most popular sport, football, and found some very interested results. TonyBet had great coverage across the board and even more so for the bigger games; players can expect to sink their teeth into favourites such as Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time, Double Chance, Goals O/U, Team to Win Which Half, Both Teams to Score, Score in Both Halves, Goals Odd/Even and many others.
Welcome Bonus & Promotions:
Players at TonyBet are slightly limited when it boils down to their current promotions, as there are plenty there but mainly for other sections of the site. However, they do a good welcome bonus that is sure to whet your appetite in the meantime and it comes in the form of a 50% matched deposit bonus, on amounts up to £100. So, to make the most out of this, we recommend that you deposit the full £200 to have a whopping total of £300 to play around with. It is worth noting that there are some requirements to meet before TonyBet credit your account with the bonus, so make sure to read up and that you understand completely.
As aforementioned, there currently isn’t anything else available to sportsbook players, but if you like to dabble in other areas, there is definitely enough to keep you busy and considering the fact you can visit the other sections of the site from just the one account, this will certainly be appealing to some players.
The live play console that TonyBet provide to their players is as good as you’d expect and comparable to the rest of their site. The only thing we can mark it down for is the fact that you need to scroll through everything before you get to the specific sport or event that you are looking for, which is negligible if you’re only interested in football, however. Players will get to choose from sports such as Basketball, Baseball, Football and there could be more to add to this list, depending on when you check.
Keeping it fair by analysing the football markets, we can tell you that they maintain their high quality by providing favourites such as Handicaps, 2-3 Way, Both Teams to Score, Correct Score, Clean Sheet, Double Chance, Best Score as well as minute by minute live bets.
Mobile & Tablet:
Players will be able to enjoy all of the excellent features from the desktop version of the site but from right within the palms of their hands, thanks to the handy, dedicated mobile betting application that TonyBet has produced. The application can be found on the Apple app store or downloaded from their website directly, depending on which side of the fence you sit on with iOS and Android.
You can also visit TonyBet’s website from your mobile or tablet browser for a fully optimised, scaled down version that saves you having to download anything as a prerequisite to play.
There are plenty of ways in which customers can add and withdraw funds from their TonyBet account and these include traditional banking methods, as well as the newer up and coming method; e-wallets. So if you still prefer to use the likes of cards such as Visa and MasterCard, both of these are fine as well as e-wallets including Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard, PaySera, ecoPayz and SEPA.
If you ever feel as though you need help during your visit to TonyBet, their support team can be reached between the hours of 07:00 and 02:00 GMT via live chat. You can also speak to a member of the team over the telephone, by email and there is also a detailed FAQ section to check out.
TonyBet are a quality independent sportsbook that has flair on top of their premium website and quality product. They may not have the best welcome bonus in the business but it is definitely a way of redeeming the fact that they don’t have much else to offer their sports betting players and this goes a long way. Their support team is incredibly helpful and despite not having the most expansive range of markets, the ones that are covered have been done so with the highest regard. So all in all, if you are looking for a new online sportsbook to add to your profile, click on the link below and follow the directions so you can get in on the fun, with a TonyBet account.
