Betsson Casino Review – Online Gambling, Mobile Casino Website

This is the image of Betsson casino. Orange letters "betsson" and the company slogan: "Anytime's playtime" over a white background. You can read the review of Betsson casino under the picture.

Betsson casino

 

Betsson Casino is part of Betsson Group (parent company: Betsson AB), a very professional, very by the book, very reliable Swedish gambling group that has been around since 1963. They always go above and beyond of what is required of them in terms of laws, regulations, license and ethical conduct of business. I highly recommended the group as a whole for their ethical business conduct, I award them +1 points for it. The main casino as the name would suggest is this one, Betsson casino, an online gambling platform (,which means casino gambling + sports betting + poker all in one website). I was a member of this group for the past 5 years (both Betsafe and Betsson, the two biggest casinos of this group). I’ve witnessed how this gambling group established itself as a market leader, and Betsson as one of the best online casinos out there in these years. Already huge, professional and dedicated to safe, responsible gambling at time I joined it 5 years ago, it has only gotten better over the years. Sadly they no longer accept players from my country due to changes in laws and regulations so my established player account was closed a while back, sadly. The other gambling websites of this group I’ve tested and reviewed are: Betsafe, Casino Euro.

As mentioned above, online gambling platforms are a combination of online casinos and casino type gambling, sports betting, poker and other special live games. It’s an all-in-one gambling destination. Only the biggest and the best casinos can afford to deal with the legal issues, the paperwork and cost of such a huge operation, therefore if you see an online gambling platform you know you are on the website of one of the best, biggest and most established company.

None of the casinos of the Betsson group accept US players for legal reasons

Betsson casino has quite a few gambling licences (12 in total), that’s the reason they can accept players from many of the more restricted European countries legally (they require casinos to undergo separate special licensing processes and get a local license). You can check all the gambling licences of Betsson casino here.

Betsson casino has over 1500 games, the biggest selection I’ve ever seen in any online casino. You will definitely find what you are looking for in here.If you don’t, it does not exist.

I trust this group completely. I trusted them with my money, and I always got my winnings, all of it, no matter how much I win, all the time. In fact, I withdrew over $50 000 over a period of 5 years, when I still had my account, no problems whatsoever (mandatory ID check of course, that is required for legal reasons, but no unnecessary delays, always got the money). They got good reviews, good reputation, good track record and a lot of really good mobile compatible games and a great sports betting platform. Even though the fantastic sports betting section of website is mentioned and also the poker section this is still a casino review focusing on the casino games section of the platform.

 

Ethical business conduct, good track record, properly licensed, reliable: +1 points

 

If you don’t have time to read the full review and you are just looking for a short summary, just read this: The casino doesn’t accepts players from the USA. Casino+sports betting+poker all in one. Very good selection of games Microgaming, NetEnt, Evolution Gaming and other smaller studios + exclusive homebrew in-house games, highest amount of games in any casino, 1500+. Very good casino all around, recommended, if you are not already a member it’s worth switching over to this one, probably better than 99% of casinos out there, 10/10, this, along with Betsafe are currently the top rated casinos on this website.

 

If you are from the US I recommend this casino, you can read the full review here. This one accept US players.

This is the image of the 'Simon says' part of my casino reviews. Next to this picture is my description of my review methodlogy and explanation of the scoring system and data points analysed.

Simon says: There are two main, vastly different categories of online casinos, online gambling websites, which accept US players, and sites which do not accept US players. Betsson Casino is the latter, not accepting players from the USA and US territories. This is important to mention in a review, because radically different games are available to both of these casino types and they should be reviewed in a significantly different way. European (primarily targeting European players, mostly licensed in Europe, often headquartered in Europe as well) gambling websites always have better and more games, because the best software providers, due to licensing and legal issues don’t work with casinos, which accept US players.

Betsson Casino has over 1500 games in every game category you can think of. While a typical US casino has about 300 games and has no interesting unique games, no live dealer games, usually no digital sports betting and no movie license slots based on popular franchises. Therefore a US casino is always going to look bad compared to a European one.

/You can read more about why this is, and about the legal status of domestic and offshore gambling, online gambling in the USA here. Be warned, pretty complicated, dry read, legal stuff./

So, a good US casino would still be only 3/10 compared to a European one. However, in a review I would still rate a good US casino 7-8/10 because different context, and it is for different players, that’s all there is available for US players. Therefore when I review a casino I use a separate scoring system for the two different types of casinos. A good US casino will still get 7/10 or 8/10 like it should, instead of a 3/10. Just wanted to mention this, to avoid confusion as to why a 200 games US casino might get the same score as a EU powerhouse with 1000+ games. I hope this clears it up why this is the way it is. If you are not form the US there is no point to play in a US casino, really, you have much better options.

 

This is the illustration right next to my review and research methodology part. You can read about my review methodology, and scoring system I use throughout the review.

Review methodology: This is how the total score of a casino is calculated. In each section I review one of the primary attributes of the casino, these are: list of countries not accepted, games, deposit and withdrawal process, methods and uniqueness. Each of these aspects then gets points ranging from +2, meaning exceptionally good to -2, exceptionally bad. Additionally at end of the review I go through what I consider to be less important secondary attributes, such as live support chat, VIP, loyalty program, mobile compatibility, other reviews and bonuses&promotions.
At the end I tally all the points and add subtract them from 10. This will give the final score of the casino. I use a 1 to 10 scale, 10 being the best and 1 being the worst, no 0 or minus scores.

Betsson online casino review

 

1., Who can play: Let’s start the review by checking whether you can actually play in the online casino or not, here is the list of all the countries, the company does not not accept players from.

/Clarification: The country of your residence, your official address, what’s on your ID card (or address card if it’s a separate thing in your country) is what you should be checking, not your current residence. E.g: So if you are from the UK and you currently temporarily reside in the US, you should put down your UK address. It’s important, because if you win, they will ask for your ID and/or address card to make sure you are who you said you are on the registration form, and they will check the address on your ID, if it’s not the same as what you put down during registration they will instantly perma-ban you. And all your winnings will be confiscated, no matter how much you won! Be careful! /

Everyone else can register and play at the casino.

 

 

A very long list sadly. -1 points for excessive restriction. Some of it is not the casino’s fault, they already have 12 different gambling licenses and the way these licenses work is that they allow a casino to accept players from certain countries but they explicitly ban you from accepting players from certain other countries. However, many others were added on top of those. Betsson doesn’t allow players, any players from developing countries that’s very clear to see, only from rich developed countries. The casino is not accessible from these countries (I just tried using a VPN and IP mask) and that means half the world can’t even access the website. A significant portion (about 1/3) of my visitors are coming from these developing countries so I’m keenly aware of how difficult such practices make it for them to find really good, trusted gambling websites. Even though it’s understandable from a business perspective (they lose more money on players who perhaps deposit $5 or less) it’s still a form of digital discrimination.

Unlike most other online casinos Betsson doesn’t try to aggressively force you to register. You can check out the games, there is a demo mode, you can read the details of promotions, the terms and conditions, all of it and about their loyalty program. Almost everything on the website is accessible without registration. +1 point. I wish more casinos would do it, but aggressively pushing registration is the norm nowadays sadly and free play, demo mode is a thing of the past. Luckily this trend will be reversed eventually.

Also, the website is gorgeous, full of advanced, unique features and everything is responsive, adaptive and just really professional. +1

 

Accessibility, number of countries accepted: -1
Does not aggressively push registration, you can try out the games in demo mode: +1
Professional, very polished, developed website: +1

 

2., Games: The second most important thing to players is the number, and also the quality of the games. Some casino game developers are just better than others, Net Ent, Microgaming, IGT slots are magnificent HD masterpieces, whereas e.g.: Betsoft games are not exactly bad but are of a much lower quality. Therefore it’s not just the total number, but also the quality of games is very important. Betsson has an astounding 1500 casino games in total, more than any other casino, and also from the best casino software providers, namely: Microgaming, NetEnt, Evolution Gaming, Nyx Interactive, Play’n GO, Jadestone, Realistic Games, Quickspin, Thunderkick, AG software, Red Tiger Gaming, Skillzzgaming, Foxium, Fuga Gaming, Sthlm Gaming, 4ThePlayer. They also have homemade exclusive games as well. Really, you won’t find a better selection of games anywhere else.

 

Sports betting: Betsson has a very active sports betting platform as well. True to its roots its primary focus is European sports betting, but it also has a very big selection of sports, even such obscure sports as bandy or pesapallo (never heard of them, apparently big in Finland). There is also in-play betting (a.k.a. live betting) mostly for European football matches and lately there is e-sports betting as well, where you can bet on Dota 2, CS:GO, LoL etc… Surprisingly it doesn’t have any horse race betting. The live streaming and the interface is really high quality like the rest of the website, but you need a fast internet access to really enjoy of most of the features. Also HD streaming might not work on most mobile devices, depends on your video card and internet connection.

Poker: The poker section of Betsson is part of the Microgaming Poker Network (MPN), which is the biggest poker network in the world (does not accept US players). Therefore there are always games in any category you can imagine (except during weekdays during European work hours, that’s when its the least active, not surprising considering most of the payers are European). The level of play is varied, because the MPN network is everywhere so both hardcore professionals and new players, casuals use it, it ranges from soft to hard, tournaments and high stakes are usually where the better players are. The interface is gorgeous and mobile compatible, works on most devices and browsers and platforms. There is everything here: Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, 5 Card Stud, 7 Card Stud, Razz, 5 Card Draw and their own fast-fold poker client called Blaze Poker and MTT, SNG and Spin and Go tournaments.

Most of these games are mobile compatible, except for the older ones. Exceptional quality and selection.

1500 casino games from the best developers, great sports betting section, stellar poker section: +2

 

3., Deposit and withdrawal options: The third most important thing to players are the methods used to deposit and withdraw money from the casino. You obviously can’t win anything unless you bet actual money. Let’s take a look at the deposit options at Betsson:

  • Wire transfer,
  • Credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, Maestro),
  • Skrill,
  • Neteller,
  • Paysafe card,
  • PayPal,
  • Entropay,
  • Instant bank transfer,
  • Boleto,
  • Trustly

 

Great, quite a lot of different options, and they accept credit cards, wire transfer and paypal, those three are the most important. They don’t yet accept bitcoin or any digital currency, but in reality very few people actually use them compared to the three main methods mentioned previously.

Let’s see what the casino has when it comes withdrawing your winnings:

  • Bank Wire Transfer,
  • Credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Maestro)
  • Skrill,
  • PayPal,
  • Neteller,
  • EcoPayz,
  • Entropay.

The three main methods are all available, for both depositing and withdrawing money, and that what mattes +2.

Sadly they have withdrawal fees, from my days of playing with them I remember how much I hated it, they deduct 2.5%, a minimum of €5 withdrawal fee each transaction. They also have the following in the terms and conditions:

“We reserve the right to charge a reasonable administrative fee in the event that you proceed with more than 25 approved withdrawals/payout requests during one (1) calendar month. The reasonable administrative fee shall be 2% of the transaction value but no less than EUR 5 or currency equivalent.”

I never reached this limit, but if you are a high roller and you aim to become VIP you just might.

Because they don’t yet accept any digital currencies and because of the withdrawal fees and limitations I deduct -1 point.

Depositing and withdrawal methods: +2
No bitcoin, withdrawal fees, limitations: -1
Total: +1

 

4., Uniqueness: And the last one is innovation, unique and interesting new online gambling games and features. Anything that makes you “Wow, that’s amazing.”. Does Betsson have the so called ‘wow-factor’? Yes, actually! There are a few things that make this casino unique and stand out: 1500 games from the best developers, the best game selection, the latest unique trends in online gambling you can find it all on the website. And! They also make their own exclusive games too! You won’t find them anywhere else. It’s also an all-in-one gambling destination with casino + sports betting + poker + scratchcards + live dealers + every other type of gambling you can think of, they have it. So it’s unique, it does “wow” me in multiple ways, therefore a +2 is awarded. One of the only two casinos on this website that gets a +2 in this category.

Innovation, interesting, unique features/games: +2,

 


The following are less important optional factors, but still contribute to the total score:

 

-Live support chat:  A pretty decent 24/7 live support chat, you can also call them and write them emails, +1

 

VIP, loyalty program: They have a very detailed, extensive loyalty program called The Betsson VIP Club, multi-tiered. Despite the name, everyone can join and you are a member the moment you sign up (it’s misleading, not really VIP then), it’s not just for actual high rollers. However everything you get in the VIP Club has wagering limitations and playthrough requirements. However, you can get lucky, because every week, or sometimes even daily lucky winners are picked and get free money without wagering requirements. I give the loyalty program of Betsson a +0.5, it’s okay, the free money is nice, but the other bonuses are just plain, and average with 30x or higher wagering requirement.

 

-Mobile compatibility: The newer games are mobile compatible, most games released in the past 5 years work great on mobile devices tablet, cross platform and cross browser compatible and pretty user friendly. Of course you can tell the older games were not designed for such small screens originally. But that’s hardly the casino’s fault. Not to mention it’s not realistic to expect the same gaming experience on mobile as on PC, just not realistic. It is as mobile compatible a casino can be. All the games are instant-play, accessible right from the browser, no download necessary (on mobile it is necessary, you have to download the app). No point is awarded, because mobile compatibility nowadays is a must, not an extra.

 

-Other reviews: I always check what other review sites say about a casino, to make sure my personal experiences are not out of the line (and sometimes these reviews surprise me quite a lot). I expected 10/10 and 9/10 reviews all around but there are some 2/10 and 1/10 reviews there as well, claiming outlandish things like: it has no welcome bonus for new players (not true, and even if it was true, so what? – a bonus is only good if it has a decent wagering requirement, bonuses are not the end all be all, and having no bonuses would be actually preferable to these 30x or higher bad bonuses that are everywhere and sadly became industry standard nowadays), or that Betsson operates illegally (so very not true, in fact they have 12 different gambling licenses, more than any online casino I have played in) and my favourite a 1/10 review giving it the lowest possible score because “it doesn’t accept players from my country” :D. Really not fair, the world doesn’t revolve around you…. Deal with it, they don’t accept players from my country as well anymore. Anyway, these bad, and on purpose misleading reviews are best ignored. There is nothing really wrong with this casino, most online gambling platforms should actually try to emulate most of what they do, especially the ethical, by the book business approach, getting all the required licenses not just a main license like 90% of other casinos.

 

-Casino bonuses: Betsson casino has a welcome bonus with a 35x playthrough requirement right now, the welcome bonuses for new players are usually around that, just like most other casinos of this group or anywhere else. It’s a bad bonus, anything above 30x is considered a bad bonus. I would deduct -1 for it. However they also give free money weekly to a few lucky returning players and that has ABSOLUTELY NO PLAYTHROUGH OR WAGERING REQUIREMENT, that’s quite a big deal, that’s really free money and for that I would award +1. Therefore the total score for bonuses and promotions in this casino is 0, neutral.

/Rant: I do know why they have such bad bonuses btw., if you have the proper licenses (they do) and you operate legally, registered properly and you are paying taxes (they do) then a huge portion of your revenue goes towards paying taxes, it’s a very taxed industry. They don’t make as much net profit on new players as one would assume. And the net result of the excessive taxation of casinos by governments around the world is subpar bonuses and promos for new and existing players in the casinos (30x+). Just sayin’, 15+ years ago, when I started playing and online gambling was still the wild west and it was not regulated or taxed in many parts of the world, 10x-20x wagering requirements were the norm…. not the 30x+ like today… And sometimes new players got actual free money too, €5 or €10, not much, but no wagering requirement, at all! Hard to imagine nowadays, right? It’s been at least 8 years since I have seen a really great bonus under 10x. Rant over./

 

Total score: Betsson Casino gets 10/10, 5 stars, highly recommended, you won’t regret registering here or switching over to this online casino.
