Betboro is an online gambling platform operated by Webmedia Development N.V. The company is based in Curacao but serves a global audience spanning across all continents, except a few countries such as Australia, Sweden, Italy, and the US. The has further obtained a license the UK Gambling Commission allowing it to serve the UK market as well.
On its inception in 2013, Betboro was first introduced as a sports betting site with a very well structured sportsbook. Over the few years of its existence, the company has opted to incorporate an online casino into their business model as well. Currently, the Betboro website is home to both sports betting and online casino games, including jackpots. In this review, we will be looking at how well this model is executed, in contrast to other leading online gaming sites.
Based on our experience playing at the Betboro, we will give a rating on the quality of games; variety offered bonuses and promos, customer support, as well as the overall feel of the website’s design and layout.
How to register at Betboro?
Before you go any further and begin evaluating the types and quality of games offered here, it important you sign up and get a Betboro gaming account. The sign-up and account registration process is quite easy as it entails only three steps;
- Open the Betboro website and click the green ‘REGISTER’ button at the top right corner of the page
- In the pop-up window that appears, type in your preferred username, email address, and password then click the ‘Next’ button.
- In the next page that appears, you will be prompted to type in your details such as full name, date of birth, gender, country of residence and contact details. After providing these details, click to accept terms and conditions then click the ‘Register’ button.
After submitting these details, you will receive an email confirming your account has been registered in under a minute. Before you register your account with Betboro, you should take note that Betboro has a strict policy limiting account usage to only per individual, household or even IP address. If found to be in breach of this condition, it could lead to the closure of your account and loss of any money you might have won playing here.
Activating and verifying a new account
Registering your account using your email is not simply enough to get going at Betboro. Once an account is registered, you can go ahead and start playing the casino games and betting at the sportsbook. However, you will realise the withdrawals will be limited, prompting you to verify your account.
Verification is an important aspect of the account registration process as it helps the casino collect information that authenticates your identity. Verification also helps the company ensure they are playing within the legal limits in terms of the age requirements. For you as the user as well, the account verification process helps to ensure that only you can access your account and process withdrawals.
For you to get underway with the verification process, you will need to provide the company with a copy of your ID, driver’s license or passport. You will also need to issue them with proof of address by using a document such as a utility bill. For banking purposes, you will be required to also scan either your bank statement, credit or debit card.
You don’t need to worry about getting your details exposed as Betboro has put in place requisite measures to protect all the personal and banking information you share on their platform.
How to recover a lost password?
Probably you previously played at Betboro some time back, but you are unable to log in again as you cannot remember your password. You should not worry about setting up another account. Remember, having a duplicate account is prohibited. As such, all you need to do is reset your account’s password. This is an easy two-step process.
Click the ‘Log in’ button placed at the top-right corner of the page. In the login pop-up page that appears, click the ‘Forgot Password?’ Link, then provide the email address linked to your Betboro account. Within a minute or so, you should receive an email in your inbox with a link that you can use to reset your account password.
In some rare occasions, you might miss the password reset email from your inbox folder. This normally happens if your emailing service provider has over-aggressive filters that might end up sending this password reset email to the spam folder. You can, therefore, try looking for the password reset email in other folders.
Website Design – Structure and Navigation
Betboro has a straightforward yet elegant website design. The site has a predominantly black theme with white fonts. Pale green is used as the highlight colour here and there and to highlight page links and important buttons on the site.
The first thing to strike you as you open the Betboro site is how sports-oriented the site is. Probably this is in line with the company’s main focus, which is in sports betting. At the very top of the home page, you will find main navigation buttons, with links to various sections of the site. At the far right corner is the settings button with a cog-like icon. You can use this to adjust various settings on the site such as toggling on and off the events sounds, changing the sportsbook layout and also the odds format. Next to this is the help icon where you can get links to activating the live chat or the FAQs page.
At the mid-section of the homepage, you will get flashes of the big matches and events lined up for the day. Right below this is a tab with news highlights on sports blogs. This can be an important and quick source of any news feeds you might need as you place your bets.
The bottom part of the page is quite familiar as it has the usual quick links and website licensing information. In this section, you will find some important links to verify Betboro’s licensing and legality. Here you will also find links to gambling support groups, in case you need help with a gambling addiction.
Generally, navigating the Betboro website should not be hard for any seasoned gamer. If you are new to the online betting and gaming world, you might take a few minutes to familiarise yourself with the website, but if you use the tabs on the main navigation menu at the very top, then it will be easy for you to navigate.
As hinted earlier in this review, sports betting is the biggest product that Betboro has to offer. The Betboro sportsbook is quite an expansive one, with a huge variety of sports to bet on. At the Betboro site, you will always find not less than 500 events to bet every day, even when the most popular football leagues are on break.
With such a huge selection of sporting events to offer, most sportsbooks struggle with having an organised way of putting them all together. With Betboro, it is quite easy to filter through the various events on offer. You will find all the sports categories listed on the left panel of the site. Top in this list is a category of the most popular games. Here you will find the most sought after matches of the day. The next section is for popular competitions, where you will find a lineup of popular tournaments and leagues such as the EPL, UEFA Champions League and NBA. After this, all the sporting categories are then listed alphabetically from A to Z. This makes it very easy to scroll directly to the sports you are interested in.
You can also toggle the view of the sportsbook into multiple modes. There is an Event View in which the entire mid-section of the page will be filled with the highlights and betting options from one particular match or event. The Dashboard mode, on the other hand, gives you a summary of all the matches and events set to take place on the day. If you would like to view live matches only, then you can click the Live Multiview tab to switch to this mode.
Betboro also offers a stats and results page. The statistics page compiles all the important data about a team, league or tournament. On the results page, you will find a compilation of all previous results. These results include even those from e-sports and virtual sports as well, something seldom found in many sportsbooks.
The sports categories availed in the Betboro sportsbook include:
- Ice hockey
- American football
- Formula 1
- Water polo
In all, there are more than 30 different sporting categories to bet on here. You will also find some sports rarely listed in sportsbooks, such as Sumo and Lacrosse. Curiously, with such an expansive sportsbook, Betboro does not have any markets for horse racing, except in the virtual sports section. This is an area they should be looking to tap into, especially considering the company is looking to cement its place in the UK market.
Other than the regular sports, there are also options to bet on non-sports entertainment events. These include upcoming political elections, TV shows, movies and reality shows such as Britain’s Got Talent. There is a special bets section which we found to be quite interesting. In this section, you can bet on the oddest of events such as the first company to land a person on Mars, the next Pope and also the next James Bond. This will be an interesting go-to-market if you are looking to bet for fun with nothing much at stake.
Another important element to review is the nature of the markets offered in the sportsbook. The markets dictate the type of bets you can place thus tell you how much flexibility you will have with the sportsbook.
While doing this review, our team scanned through the betting options available for the various sporting categories offered at Betboro. The results were quite impressive as we could find quite a lot of betting options here. For instance, if you are a football fan, how would over 300 betting options for a single match sound? This actually what Betboro offers. The betting markets here are so diverse that you can place any bet.
Besides, Betboro allows for single, multi and chain bets. This means you can play around with the markets and place combined bets cutting across multiple events.
With Betboro, you can switch how the odds in the various markets are displayed. Using the settings cog placed at the top right corner of the page, you can change the odds format to either decimal, American, HongKong, Malay or Indo. You can change the layout of the entire sportsbook from the regular classic view to either Eastern or Combo. All these modes give you a different way of consuming sportsbook information.
Exclusive New Customer Offer – Up to £25 in Free Bets
To back this impressive lineup of sports betting markets, Betboro has put in place a welcome bonus package exclusive to new customers only. In the Betboro Exclusive New Customer Offer, you will get your first deposit matched 100% up to £25. To get this free bets money, simply register as a new customer. The bonus money will be made available if you make a minimum deposit of £5. The free bet money will be automatically deposited into your account within 24 hours.
It is important to note that this offer applies to deposits made using Visa or Mastercard only.
Live Betting on Sports
Betboro also has an equally vibrant live betting section featuring options to bet on live matches and events. Unlike with most sportsbooks, the in-play betting options here is not restricted to football only, but instead, you can live bets on nearly all sports offered in the mainstream sportsbook, including e-sports.
You can identify the live matches while in the sportsbook as they have a green live button. Alternatively, you can filter through the live events only by clicking the ‘LIVE’ tab at the main navigation menu bar at the top of the home page.
Cash out Option
Betboro also supports cashouts. For those still new to the world of sports betting, cashing out is a feature in sports betting that allows you to make a withdrawal from your active bets while the events you have had bet on are yet to be settled. In this manner, you will be reducing the risk of making a loss in case the results go contrary to your bet while locking in a portion of the profits. The amount paid out in cash is determined by the point at which you are making the cash out a request and the state of affairs at that particular event.
You will be happy to learn that BetBoro does offer a live streaming function. This function is beneficial for the players who prefer to place bets in the in-play section. We have to admit this is no surprise considering the brand markets itself as a leading sports betting portal. However, you should be advised that this option is not available for all the events on the platform.
Aside from the live streaming, gamers can take advantage of graphical match updates provided via a feed on the live betting page. This feature is very similar to the live streaming but doesn’t spend that much data traffic.
Betboro Casino Section
Despite being a primarily sports betting site, Betboro also has an up and coming online casino. The Betboro online casino is a relatively smaller section of the business but is still quite sufficient to a regular player’s needs. The casino has games from all categories, ranging from table games, card games, slots, video poker, and progressive jackpots.
Betboro has sourced the online casino software services from Microgaming and 1X2 Network, two of the most prominent brands in the business. This has helped ensure that their online casino is home to some of the most sought after games such as Immortal Romance, Vegas Strip, Mermaid Millions and progressive jackpots such as Mega Millions and Mega Moollah. The online casino has up to nine different progressive jackpot games.
The table and card games sections also have a good selection of various types of poker, baccarat, roulette, and blackjack. At the video poker section, you will have about a dozen virtual video poker games including brands such as Double Bonus Poker, Aces and Faces, All American Poker, Joker Poker, and Louisiana Double. If you are looking for some bingo action, then you will find one Keno game on offer.
Based on our review, it suffices to say the Betboro online casino is quite small. Nonetheless, the little they have to offer is spread out properly across the various gaming categories, thus ensuring there is at least one type of every online casino game you have heard of. While this might not be your go-to site for casino gaming, it is still worth checking out.
Something else worth noting is that the online casino does not have any targeted bonuses or promos. One would assume that this is mainly because the section is still work in progress, but still, it would have helped a lot if one or two bonuses were on offer here.
Deposits and Withdrawals
When it comes to the movement of cash, Betboro has in place a good selection of payment options to aid you in moving cash in and out of your account. The payment options here include bank transfers, cards, and e-wallets. The tables below will give you a good breakdown of the payment methods applicable here, with their respective transaction limits and deposits and withdrawal time;
|Payment Method||Deposit Minimum||Deposit Maximum||Time for Deposit|
|Payment Method||Withdrawal Minimum||Withdrawal Maximum||Time for Withdrawal|
|Visa||£10||£50000||3-5 Working Days|
|Neteller||£10||£50000||1-2 Working Days|
|Skrill||£10||£50000||1-2 Working Days|
|EcoPayz||£10||£50000||1-2 Working Days|
|MasterCard||£10||£50000||3-5 Working Days|
Visa, Neteller, Skrill, EcoPayz, MasterCard
It was also impressive to note that Betboro does not charge any fees for processing deposits and withdrawals, as all transactions here are free.
Betboro Mobile App
Betboro has made it much easier to bet and follow all the sporting action on the go through your smartphone or tablet. In addition to using the regular desktop website version, Betboro has also developed dedicated apps that run on both Android and iOS. The downloadable apps offer a much better browsing experience with an interactive user interface that is much better than the mobile site version.
One thing you should note however is that the installation process for the Betboro mobile applications is quite different from that of other regular apps. This is because the apps are not readily available in the respective Google and iOS app stores. Instead, the apps are provided through a .apk download from the Betboro website.
As such, you should first open the Betboro main website using the URL beta.betboro.com. From this page, you will find the download link for both the Android and the iOS apps. Click on the respective link for your device and the apk file will be downloaded. Once you download the file, you can then run the file for the app to be installed. It is also important to note that you will have to make some modifications to your phone’s or tablet’s security settings to allow for installations from unknown sources.
Alternatively, if you are unwilling to go through the hustle of installing the mobile apps, you can instead use the mobile site version. This is a much faster way of accessing the Betboro website on your mobile phone or tablet, using your regular mobile browser. The mobile version of the website works quite well using any regular mobile browser, giving you access to the same quality of online gaming services as the desktop version.
Betboro has a very interactive affiliate program with lucrative opportunities to earn commissions, which can be as much as 35%. Registration to the affiliate marketing program is done through Betboro website. Registration is quite an easy process as all you need is to fill an online web form. In the web form, you will be required to provide details such as your contact details and link to your internet resources such as your website or blog.
After registration, Betboro offers a standard turn-around time of about 24 hours. Generally, Betboro has no stringent measures in their affiliate program. Provided your website has the right type of content and traffic; it will readily be approved. Once approved, the program manager will support you with the marketing resources you need such as affiliate links and banners to place on your website or blog.
In addition to earning commissions for referring players, Betboro also rewards you for referring more affiliate marketers to the program. This is done under their sub-affiliates program which allows you to earn a share of the commissions earned by the affiliates that you have referred to the program. This means you will have two income streams while working as a Betboro affiliate marketer.

Conclusion and Rating
Generally, Betboro is an entertaining online betting portal. The site will give you access to diverse sports betting markets involving sports taking place around the world. In as much as the sports markets odds are concerned, Betboro offers nothing too extra as the odds are set at the market average rates. If you are interested in sports betting as a pass time activity, then this is a site worth checking out.
However, if you are looking for a comprehensive all-in-one online gaming site with an online casino, then Betboro could be slightly disappointing. Their online casino section still seems to be work in progress. It is also worth noting that Betboro does not offer any bonuses or promos for the online casino.
Lacking a direct contact number and 24/ customer support also takes away a substantial chunk of stars in this site’s ratings.
