Sportsbook, Casino Games & Live Dealer

The main focus of this site is the two largest areas called Sports and Live Betting respectively. There’s a dizzying array of different posting events, eSports, and Special Events (such as politics) upon which you can have a punt. But, on top of this, there are loads of excellent casino games available from top studios such as NetEnt, Betsoft, Pragmatic Play, Microgaming, and Evolution Gaming, to name but a few. That means you have access to hundreds of different slots, table games, live dealer releases whenever you want a break from betting on sports. So, let’s dig into each section in a little more detail to see how well all of the options are handled…

Sportsbook and betting

When accessing the Sports area, you are immediately presented with the top matches of the day, from those currently playing to what’s coming up in the next few hours. The main options at the top give an indication of the most popular categories: Live, Football, eSports, Tennis, Basketball, Ice Hockey, Volleyball, and All Sports (or it could be that these are dynamic selections that change depending on the biggest matches in each sport each day). Over on the left-hand side, the site displays the Top Leagues, meaning a list of the biggest domestic football leagues, from Italy’s Serie A and England’s Premier League to Spain’s La Liga, German’s Bundesliga, and France’s Ligue 1. So, there is a European bias as to what is featured most.

Further down on the left-hand side is the list of sports and other categories on which you can bet, along with the number of said events – football had close to 700 separate games running at the time of writing, for example. Below this list, a fair way down the screen, is the option to change from Decimal Odds to either Fractional- or American-style. On the right-hand side, in the top corner, is your betting slip. This is updated in real-time, so as soon as you pick an event and click on one of the odds given, it will be added to your slip. From there, you choose how much to bet as singles or accumulators, and everything is calculated for you including potential winnings!

Live odds

Things are much the same in the Live Betting section of the site, except for there’s far less information on the screen at any one time – this makes sense, as the events only need to be displayed as they are coming to a close and you don’t need so many options for choosing sports. The same categories are shown (as you would see in the main Sports section) at the top of the screen, with the added choices of Table Tennis and Baseball. Although, as we said above, the selections could change dynamically to reflect the biggest matches of the day.

Betting is just as easy as described above. Find the currently-running event, click on the odds of a particular result, and you’ll see everything populate inside your bet slip on the right-hand side. Just note that odds are likely to change fairly rapidly once teams begin to score or the final whistle is approaching. Luckily, there are some settings for managing this aspect, so you can either choose to Accept Any Odds Change, Accept Higher Odds, or Always Ask On Odds Change. This makes betting on numerous different minutiae of each game a breeze, especially in the heat of the moment as the game is progressing. So, overall, we’re very impressed so far.

Slots and table games

There are plenty of great casino titles from top providers available at BetRebels. All of the games are neatly categorized to make it easy to find your next favorite game when taking a break from sports betting. Here are all of the different sections in the order they appear across the top of the Casino part of the site: All Games, Favorites, New, Popular, Video Slots, 3D Slots, Virtual Games, Instant Wins (think Scratch Cards), Table Games, Slots, Video Poker, Jackpots (more on this one below), and Tournaments. To give you an idea of some of the best video slots and classic fruit machines, the Popular category featured the following releases: Starburst, 40 Super Hot, Bonanza: Megaways, Solar Temple, Book of Dead, Inca’s Treasure, and Twin Spin.

There are a few other ways to quickly find what you’re after. You can search directly via the game name, or else choose to only see the titles from each of the multiple different providers. Things could be further improved from a user’s perspective by adding in some additional filtering options so that slots could be chosen by things like volatility, the number of paylines, and so on. Even the Table Games section lumps all of the different types together, rather than enabling a player to easily choose between roulette, blackjack, baccarat, pai gow, Dragon Tiger, and Casino Hold’em Poker, for example. Plus, live dealer titles are thrown into the same category, making it quite confusing to know what’s what at a glance. So, there’s more to do here.

Jackpots at BetRebels

The Jackpots section is much easier to navigate, but that’s only because there were only just over 30 titles at the time of writing. Luckily, the big-hitters with occasionally massive prize pool totals from Microgaming are present. Therefore, you get to try your luck at winning the sometimes astronomical jackpots of games like Mega Moolah and Wheel of Wishes. Unfortunately, that’s where the Microgaming list ends, so there’s no Major Millions or King Cashalot jackpots available here. To make up for this, some of NetEnt’s progressive titles like Divine Fortune, Grand Spinn, Mega Joker, Cosmic Fortune, and Super Lucky Frog are available. So, while it’s not a bad selection, we’d love to see more jackpots added, in addition to displaying the current top prize on each game tile – currently, nothing of the sort is displayed.

Live casino games

The BetRebels Live Casino gets its own section at the top of the screen. Heading there presents players with a mini lobby area with a very good-looking croupier welcoming you to the game selection. Scrolling down from there, you will see all of Evolution Gaming’s best live studio tables (including their unique games, such as Crazy Time, Football Studio Pro, and Mega Ball in addition to the multiple table versions of the classics like roulette, baccarat, and blackjack.

Below Evolution’s excellent selection are the equally decent live table games from NetEnt. The great thing about the NetEnt titles in this area is that you get told who the dealer will be, the minimum bet for playing each round, and the maximum amount that can be placed on the table – plus, for blackjack only, you get notification of how many virtual seats are still available. This is really great stuff, in our opinion, and we tended to play more NetEnt Live releases than ones from Evolution Gaming. All in all, then, we have no complaints about this excellent category.

Betrebels Welcome Offer

There are two welcome bonuses at BetRebels. One is for those who prefer to place bets on sporting events around the world, while the other is for those who would rather concentrate on playing slots, table games, and other casino-type releases. Starting with the sports welcome bonus, you are entitled to claim a deal worth 50% of your initial deposit up to a maximum of €100. So, if you deposit €200, you will be given an additional €100 in bonus funds, meaning you can bet on various sports with a total of €300 in your back pocket. Not that you have to max out the offer, of course, as the minimum deposit for the BetRebels sports bonus is a mere €10.

As for the casino welcome bonus, we were disappointed to find a broken Read More link from the main Promotions page. Nevertheless, we did manage to get there by manually editing the end of the URL to only read ‘/welcome-bonus/’ instead of ‘/welcome-bonus-2/’. That slightly-against-regulations faux pas aside, we were glad to see a 100% welcome bonus worth up to €200 being offered to new players. However, this time, the minimum deposit jumps up to a still-very-reasonable €20. So, let’s see what other terms and conditions govern these deals…

Bonus terms and wagering requirements

A bizarre part of the sports bonus is the need to send an email to bonus@betrebels.com with the subject ‘bonus of first deposit’ after your first qualify deposit in order to claim your offer. You will then be sent a bonus code (again via email) so that you can enter it in the Bonus Tab of your My Bets area. Once this is done, however, the rest of the terms are fairly straightforward. Firstly, you must wager your deposit amount and bonus five times on single bets with odds of 1.75 or above within 90 days. And that’s about it, other than some country restrictions.

The wagering requirements for the casino welcome bonus are on the high side at 45 times the bonus amount received. This puts the BetRebel’s terms way above the industry average of around 35 times. Other restrictions include only being able to use the bonus on slots, with a maximum bet each time set at either €5 per round or 50c per line (whichever is higher). Strangely, there was no time limit stated in the terms and conditions, so we highly recommend checking this aspect of the deal with customer support to get the latest information on this.

Promotions and bonuses

The promotions come thick and fast once you’ve played through your welcome bonus. For example, there’s a Monthly Reload Bonus of 50% up to €100, a Weekend Top-Up Bonus of 33% up to €99, and a Daily Top-Up Bonus of between 25% and 33% up to a maximum of €145. This is all in addition to regular seasonal promotions such as the Playson Buffalo Charge and Pragmatic Play Daily Drops & Prizes offers that were running at the time of our review.

On the sports side of things, there is a Win More Bonus where you can potentially add up to 80% on top of your winnings bets, a Loyalty scheme that gives players the chance to get a bonus each and every month, and the Tennis and Basketball Insurance on Multiple Bets, which should be largely self-explanatory. So, there’s plenty of offers to claim no matter what you play!

Usability

While the site is looking a little long in the tooth compared to more modern sportsbook sites, it functions perfectly well and has been designed with end-users in mind. Therefore, we found it a breeze moving about the various sections of the site and felt everything was intuitively laid out. For example, right at the top of each page is the return to Home logo, followed by the categories for each type of gambling activity and the various offers for each one: Sports, Live Sports, Virtual Sports, Casino, Live Casino, and Promotions. Things are rounded off with a few buttons for things like logging in or depositing and a language selector for changing the site from English into either German, Greek, Italian, or Spanish – this is really great to see!

We’ve covered the navigation aspects of the sportsbook and casino games areas above, so all of the other links are located in the footer of the site. There, you will find links to useful pages such as the General Terms & Conditions, Responsible Gaming, Privacy Policy, About, Payment Solutions, Contact, and Live Chat. It would’ve been nice if the latter could also have been accessed via a separate icon that hovered somewhere in the corners of the pages – if you’re on a slots page, for example, the games keep loading up the further you scroll down the page, making it nigh on impossible to ever reach the footer if you want to launch the Live Chat. 

Mobile casino

Using the BetRebels site from a mobile device such as an iPhone, iPad or Android equivalent is simply a matter of putting the URL into your mobile browser or tapping one of the welcome bonus banners on GoodLuckMate. Once there, you’ll notice that the entire site neatly slots everything into place to fit a smaller screen. In fact, we’d say that the mobile site is laid out even better than the desktop site, as your reliance on the footer for certain actions has been removed. That’s because of all of the main links have been moved to a dropdown hamburger menu in the top left. This contains all of the sports and game categories mentioned above, along with the Promotions link, Live Chat, and the language selector. All in all, then, we prefer playing at BetRebels from a small mobile device such as an iPhone SE.

Betrebels Help and Support

Disappointingly, there is no FAQ page to answer the most common questions from new players and seasoned professions alike. This really needs to be rectified if we’re going to give top marks to BetRebels. There is a Payments Solutions page with some useful information, but otherwise, your only option for getting answers fast is to contact a member of the customer support team.

Thankfully, there are a few options for getting in touch. The one we recommend most is the Live Chat functionality we’ve mentioned a few times already. This is by far the quickest and most convenient way of speaking with someone within 30 seconds or so – though the service isn’t available 24 hours a day, unfortunately. Next up, you can send an email to cs@betrebels.com and get a response within a few hours or else phone the Malta office directly on +356 2704 0188 (watch out for those phone bills is you’re based outside of Malta, however!) There’s also a fax number (+356 2704 0187) if you want to feel like you’re living in the 90s again, too!

Deposits and Withdrawals

Payments can be made in either Euros (EUR), Swiss Francs (CHF), or US Dollars (USD). And there are a fair few options for both making deposits and requesting withdrawals of your winnings. The following methods can be used either way: Visa, Mastercard, Electron, Maestro, Neteller, Skrill (although the site still uses the old name of Moneybookers, for some reason), Paysafecard, Ukash, Click2Pay, and ClickandBuy. An additional method of Bank Wire Transfer can be used for withdrawals as well, though do note that this is the slowest method and it may take up to seven business days until you see your cash. Finally, we should point out that you need to transfer all funds to your Sportbook account on BetRebels to make withdrawals.

Verifying your BetRebels account

At the bottom of the Payments Solutions page is everything you need to know about verifying your account and passing the security checks. There’s nothing to worry about here, as it’s now standard practice across the iGaming industry and is only in place to help protect both yourself and the sportsbook operator. So, around the time of your first withdrawal request, you will be asked to email over copies of certain official documents. This includes a passport, national ID card, or a new version of the European driving license (other licenses are not accepted), a recent bank statement or utility bill showing your full name and home address, and if you’re using a credit or debit card, you’ll need to send over a picture of the physical card. All such documents can be sent over to documents@betrebels.com along with your username.

Security and Licensing

Being based in Malta, BetRebels has one of the best casino licenses available from the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), which makes us believe players are treated well here. The other advantage of this particular license is that it allows BetRebels to operate in various territories around the world, so there’s every chance you can play there from a long list of countries. Also, we were pleased to see that strong SSL encryption was used across the site – this provides the best protection whenever you’re sending personal or financial data to the site’s servers. Nice!

Conclusion of Betrebels review

We had a lot of fun while reviewing BetRebels. There’s so much to do on the site, from betting on all manner of sporting events, living fast and loose with the in-play betting options, and spinning the reels of our favorite video slots to getting that Las Vegas experience with the Live Casino games from Evolution and NetEnt. We still had a few gripes here and there, such as a rather dated design, a reliance on the footer for basic links, and a lack of an FAQ page. However, the positives far outweighed the negatives, so we can only recommend you give this excellent sportsbook site and online casino a shot!
