Fresh out of the starting blocks in 2018, this site gives players the best of all worlds when it comes to top-class gambling experiences. There’s an excellent sportsbook service, plenty of in-play options, and hundreds of brilliant online casino games to enjoy. Add to this the fact that you can claim different welcome bonuses to suit your playing style, there are plenty of ongoing promotions, and a choice of payment options including cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and you can see why it already has our attention. There’s also multilanguage support for many different countries in Europe and further afield. So, let’s go into extra time and see what’s what…
There are many Campobet bonuses, free spins, and other promotions available based on players' country of residence. New players at Campobet casino will be able to partake in a welcome bonus, and the offer available for players in your country is listed below.
The bulk of the action here takes place in the Sports category, as you would expect, with Sportsbook, Live Betting, and Virtuals being the main areas of the site. But there are also a lot of online casino options available too. These include slots, live dealer, and video poker, supplied by some of the best studios in the business. For example, out of more than 40 different providers, we’re particularly glad to see the likes of NetEnt, Playtech, Microgaming, Yggdrasil Gaming, and Evolution Gaming represented here. So, let’s break down each of the sections one by one…
Sportsbook and Betting
Clicking on Sports brings up the three options discussed above. From there, you are presented with the current live events taking place around the world – in our case that happened to be football from Brazil and Mexico. Above that are the main categories as follows: Live (as in In-Play Betting, which we’ll cover below), Football, Basketball, Tennis, Ice Hockey, Volleyball, and All Sports. This makes it a breeze to find a bet quickly and easily when the mood takes you.
Over on the left-hand side are the Top Leagues, which happened to be the Danish Superliga, Polish Ekstraklasa, French Ligue 1 (all football, of course), NBA, and NHL. You can search for an event or team in a search bar right below the Top Leagues, or else pick a sport from a huge list ranging from Football, Basketball, and eSports at the top to Rugby League, Snooker, and Specials at the bottom – the latter, to give you an example of what’s offered, contained UK politics and the American Presidential Election at the time of writing. Then, finally, if you manage to scroll down that far you have the option to choose the odds format from the default of Decimal to either Fractional (as used in the UK) or American.
Finding and choosing bets is a doddle. Once you’ve found the event upon which you want to wager, click on the odds given for the result you expect will win, and it will automatically appear in your virtual bet slip on the right-hand side. From there, you get two options: Single or Combined. You then enter your stake and the potential winnings are calculated. Once you’re happy, simply hit Place Bet and return once the result has come in. It’s dead simple, see?
The Live Betting option near the top of the screen makes the page even easier to understand. Gone is the left-hand sidebar (as well as the option to change odds formats, so you’ll need to set that ahead of time), and replacing it is a list of all the current events taking place or ones that are about to start. A lock symbol in place of the odds means that it’s no longer possible to bet on that event, simply because the game or match has finished – things move quickly in live betting!
You can click on any event to get a more detailed view of all the betting options. Taking a football match between Palmeiras and Ponte Preta SP as an example, you can bet on anything from 1x2s, Total Goals, and Correct Score to Handicap, Odd/Even, and Which Team Wins the Rest of the Match – so there’s always plenty of options no matter what the state of the game.
Your bet slip remains on the right-hand side but is shifted down the screen slightly and with good reason. That’s because logged in players get the option to stream the game live (if it’s being shown, of course), or watch a Virtual Pitch, which shows a phenomenal amount of stats in real-time, including cards, free kicks, fouls, possession, conversion rate, and so on. This gives you a microscopic view of the entire match so far, all so that you can time the perfect in-play bet.
Finally, if nothing is happening at the time (very rare), you can always take a punt on a virtual match, which is kind of like watching two computers go head-to-head on FIFA. At the time of writing, the Virtual Premier League had reached Season 17,580 already!
Slots and Table Games
Moving over to the Casino section now, we must first point out that the initial display of Top Games (the default category) had oddly massively titles for the games, with two massive Gonzo’s Quest: Megaways tiles taking up nearly a third of the screen. However, when entering any of the other categories, they were much more reasonably sized so that you can see a better overview of what’s available. Speaking of which, the following categories exist for narrowing down your options: Top Games, New, Popular, Live Casino (covered below), Slots, Card, Casino Poker, Roulettes (sic), Favorites, Blackjack, and Video Poker. Searching for your next favorite online video slot or classic fruit machine, for example, can be done by typing the name into the bar on the left-hand side, or else you can filter all of the titles by Provider on the right.
A handy feature on each of the game titles is a small pendant icon in the bottom right for adding them to your personal Favorites category. It would be nice to be able to dig deeper with filters for things like theme, bonus round features, and bet limits, for example, but maybe this will be added at a later date. To illustrate the breadth of choice available here, however, the top seven games in the Popular category were as follows: Valley of the Gods, Street Fighter II: World Warrior Slot, Age of the Gods, Origins of Lilith, Respin Mania, Wold Golf, and Ultra Burn.
For table games, we found the Card category the best of the options – even if it wrongly contained roulette variations within. Still, if you’re looking for video versions of that, blackjack, baccarat, hi-lo, or video poker, that should be your go-to for these classic table games.
Jackpots at CampoBet
Sadly, there is no dedicated jackpots section, which is a real shame because it can be really hard to find them amongst the hundreds of slot games available here. Plus, there is no indication that a particular game might contain a local, network, or progressive jackpot, nor is there any display counter to tell you the current prize total. This is especially odd because all Pragmatic Play Drop and Wins games get their own sash to indicate it has special prizes. On the plus side, we did find lots of headline grabbers like the world-famous Mega Moolah series. Overall, then, this area needs some attention before we’re willing to give CampoBet full marks.
Live Casino Games
The Live Casino section badly needs some better organization (there’s no way to filter by roulette only, for example), but at least it is packed to the gills with top-quality table games streamed from some of the best-dedicated studios in the world. NetEnt Live, Playtech, Ezugi, Evolution Gaming, and Pragmatic Play provide the fun here, so we couldn’t be happier with the choice of live dealer titles available at CampoBet. There’s everything from multiple versions of roulette, blackjack, and baccarat to some of Evolution’s quirkier releases such as Dream Catcher, Monopoly Live, and Side Bet City. So, as you can see, the choice of live games with real croupiers is truly vast here, which is why we’re disappointed to not see filtering options.
We have to say that the site is incredibly well laid out, there’s no getting lost trying to find what you need at any given time, and everything works just as it should. We already covered some of the features available when betting on sports or playing casino games, but in terms of the main site functionality, it’s easy to learn, master, and eventually, it will become second nature. Up top, you get the language selector to change from British English into either American English, Finnish, Hungarian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, or Russian. Next to this is your options for accessing the VIP Club the Help Center via the Get Help link. Then, on the right-hand side, you have your usual Register, Log In/Out, and Deposit buttons.
There aren’t any iOS or Androids apps available here, but nor do you need them, in our humble opinion. That’s because the site itself works flawlessly on mobile phones and tablets by simply using your mobile browser. All of the same site functionality is there (some neatly hidden in a hamburger menu to keep things simple) and we found hardly any casino games that weren’t available to mobile users. On the sports side of things, nothing is missing at all, and we actually preferred going through our options and managing our bet slip on a handheld device while watching the big games on a TV – this was also a godsend for fast-paced live betting flurries!
Clicking or tapping on the Get Help link brings up the FAQ page and contact methods. As for the former, we admit that we weren’t really impressed seeing as there were only 12 questions and answers (nowhere near enough!) and most of the replies were scant on the real details that new players need. Therefore, we have to dock some points here until the site ups its game!
These are the main categories in the CampoBet FAQ:
- Sign Up
Thankfully, because the FAQs were next to useless in most cases, the customer support is amazing. It’s available around the clock, come rain or shine, and using the live chat had us only waiting a minute or two tops before we were able to get hold of a friendly and knowledgable member of the team. There is also the option to email your inquiry via [email protected]. Finally, there are two numbers that can be called if you prefer talking to someone directly. The first is a toll-free number for Russian players only: 8-800-775-34-89. The second one is available worldwide but does charge you for the pleasure. That’s on +356 2778 0669.
A wide variety of currencies (including crypto) are accepted at CampoBet. The full list of fiat currencies is as follows: Euros (EUR), Brazilian Real (BRL), Canadian Dollars (CAD), Hungarian Forints (HUF), Indian Rupees (INR), Norwegian Krona (NOK), Polish Zloty (PLN), Russian Rubles (RUB), and US Dollars (USD). As for cryptocurrencies, you can use any of these: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple. This is really amazing to see!
As for the payment methods themselves (aside from the cryptocurrencies that require a separate eWallet), you can deposit or withdraw via Visa, Mastercard, Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard, ecoPayz, Trustly, PostePay, QIWI, Zimpler, Klarna, Multibanco, Interac, and Bank Wire Transfer. Deposits are instant, whereas all withdrawals have a 72-hour processing period before being sent out into the financial system, meaning bank wires might take 10 days in total!
Verifying Your CampoBet Account
As soon as you sign up at the site, you will need to click on a verification link sent to you via email – be sure to check your spam folder if nothing comes through within a few minutes. Then, usually around the time of your first withdrawal, you will need to complete some standard security checks carried out by all sportsbook sites and online casinos nowadays. This involves you sending in copies of some important identification documents. For example, you will need to take a photo of either your passport, driver’s license of official national ID card, followed by something showing your full name and home address like a bank statement or utility bill.
It's important to note that the operator behind CampoBet recently obtained the reputable license issued by the Malta Gaming Authority. This is a respected approval and tells volumes about the casino's operating standards. Plus, for Swedish players, CampoBet also has approval from the strict Swedish gambling regulator. With these two approvals, we can't really complain about anything in terms of licensing and security. Therefore, we have no worries about playing at this site. Plus, the full 128-bit SSL encryption running on every page of the site means your personal and financial data are in good hands.
Well, there you have it. We thought this site was excellent in many, many areas, especially when it comes to betting on sports and the number of promotions that it offers on a regular basis throughout the year. We also really appreciated the number of casino games available here, although we would like to see them reorganized to make it easier to find something to play quicker. There are a few other areas that could be improved, such as the FAQs and the lack of an easily-accessible Payments page, for example, but these are minor complaints compared to the positives. The slow withdrawals were inconvenient, too, but overall, we were very happy!
