1xBet have been around for a very long time. In fact, I heard of them initially at an airport in the UAE by a friend that was looking for a bookmaker. They arrived on the scene in 2007 and have been trading since in many countries around the world. I have used the platform, on and off, for a couple of years now. This is a candid and honest review of some of the things I like, and dislike, about the bookmaker.
What is Good About 1xBet?
They have a lot going on. The platform offers a huge range of sports and coverage of the most popular markets. They take a comprehensive amount of payment methods, including Bitcoin. I guess, for some players, the flexibility may be good for depositing. For me, with my trusty bank card, I only need one method!
- Huge variety of sports available
- Virtually every possible way to gamble you can imagine
- Decent Bonus
- Pretty good odds
The platform has an amazing array of methods to gamble from sports, esports, jackpot, casino, and live casino. From a gambling perspective, they have all bases covered. I do like 1xBet as a gambling offering, there is something for everyone on the website.
What I don’t like about 1xBet
The website is clunky, slow, and lethargic. Navigating the site sometimes reminds me of using the internet on dial-up; it’s there but takes forever. The lag on the website is one thing, but the cluttered interface is another. I cannot stand when there is information on a page that doesn’t clearly discern what the highlights are. 1xBet is a victim of its complexity. The website is dated, yet with current content in both betting markets and games.
- Poor performing website and app
- Slow payout times on banking
Other than the website, the payout times can be a little frustrating. If you make comparisons against the likes of Betway, banking should be faster than it is. Whether or not 1xBet use inferior banking services to settle withdrawals is speculation but there investment is needed in that area.
Should I take the bonus?
The bonus is variable. I have personally seen the bonus go as high as a 200% deposit match which is great. Using the bonus is subject to terms and conditions that no doubt reflect their generosity. Whether or not you take the bonus should depend on your style of betting. If a bonus of 200% is offered, I would wager that against a single match including my stake. Most players tend to favour accumulators. Using the bonus on a single match, increasing your wallet, and then having more for accumulators is a smart move.

How can you Register?
Registering is no problem. By clicking “Register” in the top right-hand corner of the page you are instructed to a form. The details needed are as simple as your full name, telephone number, and password. Once you have completed these steps you then receive a confirmation code which you use to activate your account.
Once I win, how long until they pay me out my winnings?
Well here is one of the areas that I have a problem with 1xBet. If you are a banking player, I would not use 1xBet. Because I am willing to wait for my winnings I am able to use 1xBet for some of my wagers. I certainly do not use them unless I have found substantial odds against competitors. The 5-7 day withdrawal time to bank card or bank transfer is beyond crazy; only if the price is right will I indulge. The processing time to e-wallets or bitcoin is lightning fast, however. With 1xBet having been in the market for so long this is something I would have expected they had remedied a long time ago. Players win money and they want their money as fast as you took it. So, if you are listening 1xBet, please take note if you are going to keep your players playing!
You should use 1xBet if:
- You don’t mind waiting for your winnings
- The website becomes navigational and functional for you at speed
- You want some of the best odds in the market
- Your betting style is slow and considered
