As the name suggests, BonkersBet initially started as a sports betting site. With a few months into business, the site gradually developed an online casino section, a business venture that has helped the brand gain traction in the vast online gaming market.
In this article, we will be doing an in-depth review of the gaming and betting services you can find at BonkersBet. Our review entails details on the most basic elements such as new account registration, to more detailed explanations of the betting markets and bonus terms used here. This review is meant to guide both new and seasoned gamers as you begin playing at BonkersBet.
How to register at BonkersBet? Preview from BonkersBet registration
If it is your first time playing at BonkersBet, you will be prompted to register a new account, as it is the case with nearly all online gaming platforms. The account registration process is quite easy, and you can get done in a few minutes. But before you set out to register an account here, it is important to note that
BonkersBet limits the betting accounts to only per person, household or IP address. If found to be in breach of this, then the site reserves the right to close any other accounts without further notice. The first step for registration is to open the main BonkersBet homepage by using the URL www.bonkersbet.com on your favourite web browser. From the main home page, scroll up to the top right corner of the page and on the yellow-gold ‘REGISTER’ button. A small pop-up window will appear prompting you to fill in the form with your email address, preferred username, and password. As it is the case with any online gaming platform, it is advisable you choose a password that is unique and quite hard for anyone to guess. Once you have provided these details, click the next button for you to move to the next step. In this next pop-up window, you will be required to give a few identification information such as your age, full name, country of residence, address, phone number, and currency. It is important to note that while BonkersBet accepts multiple currencies, what you choose as your currency during account registration cannot be changed later. Once you have done providing this information, click the ‘Register’ button and your account will be all set and done. You will also get an automated email confirming that the account has registered. Steps for activating and verifying your account
The registration process described above is only but the first step of getting an account with BonkersBet. To unlock the full suite of the features of a gaming account here, you will need to verify your gaming account. Verification is part of the company’s KYC process whereby they try to determine if the information provided during account opening is indeed correct. The audit also helps online gaming platforms adhere to specific legal requirements such as age limits.
On your end as the gamer, the verification process helps unlock certain features on the site such as processing of withdrawals. To verify your BonkersBet gaming account, you will need to have a set of unique documents at hand. You will need to have a scanned copy of your
ID, driver’s license or passport to prove your identity. You will also need to provide proof of address. For this, you can use any utility bill that is no more than three months old.
For the verification process, you will need to send these documents to the customer support team. Unlike the account registration, the verification process is not instant. It takes at least
72 hours for you to get feedback on your account verification after submitting the documents. It would be better if the process were streamlined a little bit for faster processing. How to recover your lost password?
You might have registered an account with BonkersBet before but for one reason or another, cannot quite recall the username or password you selected. You will thus be a lockout of your account. As hinted in the section above, you cannot register a second account as this would be in breach of the site’s terms and conditions. Instead, all you need to do is reset your account’s password.
Step 1: This is a straightforward process. Just click the ‘Login’ button at the top-right corner of the page. Step 2: In the small pop-up window that appears, click the ‘Forgot Password’ button. Step 3: This will prompt you to provide the email address that you used to register the account. Step 4: Within a few minutes, you will get an email in your inbox with a link that you can use to reset your gaming account password.
With some mailing systems, they might treat such password update emails as spam and thus not categorise it under the inbox folder. You should then check for the password reset email in other email folders such as updates, promotions or even under spam.
Design, Structure & Menus Homepage of BonkersBet
From the moment you open the BonkersBet main website, you will be greeted by bold dark design. The site’s main background has a uniform black background. This is accented by golden yellow highlights, with the main text being predominantly white. Generally, webpages with a dark background tend to be more appealing as they are accessible to the eye. The dark background also helps bring out various details and colours used in the sliding banners.
The general layout of the BonkersBet homepage is quite simple, which makes it very easy to navigate even for beginners. The website has four main sections. The first section is the main navigation menu represented by the row at the very top part of the page. The main navigation menu holds the shortcuts to the various site sections. Here you will find links leading you to the
Sports, In-Play, Casino, Live Casino and Promotions sections.
Right below this navigation menu is active sliders which display the key attractions such as new games being launch, Welcome Bonuses or any other outstanding new offers on the site. The main site’s lobby section then follows this. The gaming lobby divided into three main categories, namely
Sports, Casino, and Live Casino. These are laid out in a tiled format. Now, you can use these tiles to move from one section to the other, or use the quick shortcuts on the main menu bar at the top. The last part of the main homepage is the footers section, where BonkersBet has placed all necessary links and contact information.
From an expert viewpoint, the site’s layout is entirely satisfactory. With time, we have seen many gaming sites trying to move from the complicated and cluttered arrangements into a more straightforward design with four or five sections. This is the same idea applied here, which makes the site very accommodative. Lastly, you can also switch the main site’s language from English to German, using the languages tab placed at the bottom left corner of the page. Though this is an effort to accommodate a more substantial gaming market, it would be better if more language options offered as well.
Sports Betting Sport section in BonkersBet
We will now delve deeper into the main business of the BonkersBet gaming site, which is sports betting. As hinted earlier, you can access the sportsbook by either using the shortcut at the main navigation bar or using the tiled icon at the centre of the page. Either way, you will land on a very comprehensive sports betting section that features multiple sporting disciplines.
From BonkersBet, you can bet on
football, tennis, basketball, ice hockey, baseball, cricket, boxing, golf, NASCAR, rugby league, rugby union, volleyball, and handball, among a dozen other sports. Here you will find betting options on some markets seldom seen in many sites such as the FIS World Championships, Cross Country Skiing, Squash, and floorball. Such a different sportsbook ensures that on any given day, you will have no less than 200 sporting events to bet.
In an apparent match of design, the layout of the sportsbook is straightforward and easy to navigate. The categories of games and activities to bet on are the list in a column on the far left side of the page. On the opposite right end is your bet slip, displaying what you have selected to bet. In between these two columns are the detailed descriptions of the markets available for the particular sporting category you have chosen. From this centre, a column is where the odds are displayed and where you place your bets. You can also adjust the format in which the odds presented from either
decimals, American or fractions format.
In addition to the regular real-life sporting activities, BonkersBet also allows you to bet on one or two reality and entertainment events. These include reality TV shows from around the world, but predominantly in the European and Russian regions. BonkersBet has also made an effort in providing e-sports, albeit at a less detailed level. Currently, the e-sports section features only King of Glory and Overwatch as the available options.
Also notably missing from this BonkersBet sportsbook is a racebook for horse races and greyhounds. With the level of popularity that racing betting markets attract, this is an area that we hope to see BonkersBet develop shortly.
Welcome Offer – 100% Bonus up to €100 and 100 Free Spins
When you start playing at BonkersBet sportsbook, you will not only have a great line up of sports betting markets, but also bonuses that will help you boost your gaming time and potential wins. As a new player, you will first get a warm welcome through the 100% match up bonus on your first deposit, up to
100 EUR. In addition to doubling your deposited amount, you will also award 100 free spins that are redeemable at the Wicked Tales: Dark Red game.
To trigger this bonus package, your first deposit has to be at least 10 EUR. But to get the extra punch of the 100 free spins, then you will have to make a first deposit of at least 50 EUR.
This Welcome Bonus package comes with a
5X wagering requirement at a minimum of odds 2.0 and above if you are playing in the sports betting section. For the casino section, the bonus has a higher wagering requirement of 25X. Once the reward has been a credit to your account, you will have 30 days to hit the wagering requirement, failure to which the bonus is considered forfeited. Live betting on Sports ‘In-play’ section in BonkersBet
As an extra feature to regular sports betting, the idea of live betting has increasingly gained popularity of the years. Live to bet, commonly referred to as in-play betting, basically allows you to place bets on matches or events that are currently live. If you are good at analysing gameplay, live betting could be a good way to lock in your profits by placing bets after the matches have kicked off.
With BonkersBet, you can place such in-play bets across different categories of sports and events. To view the live betting options available here, click the
‘In-Play’ tab at the main menu bar at the top of the page. Here you will find a list of all live events with in-play betting options. These include football, tennis, basketball, volleyball and ice hockey, among several other categories.
You will notice that the events are lined up in the sequence of their scheduled kick-offs. One thing that makes in-play live betting interesting and also lucrative is that the odds will keep on changing from time to time based on how the action on the field unfolds. Just like speculating on the financial markets, you can use the same idea here and place your bets when the odds are at highly favourable positions.
Cash out option
Any regular sports betting fan will have a tale of when they had to watch their money burn away as events in their match went south. Thanks to the cashout option, you can salvage your stake money and a portion of the potential wins. This option is also made available at the BonkersBet sportsbook.
What you will realise, however, is that the cash out option is not available across all sports and events. Also, the amount you get from a cash-out will depend on how far gone is the game by the time you are claiming the cash-out.
To cash out on a game or event is quite easy and fast. During gameplay, click on your bet history to view the active bets. If the sport you had bet on, such as football, has a cash-out option, you will see a golden-yellow tab that you can use to get your money back. You will show the amount to pay out, which is automatically computed.
Live streaming feature
With most leading sports betting sites, they have gone a step further to offer live streaming options for the games. This is not the case with BonkersBet as there is no live streaming provided here. Sadly enough, the site also fails to offer a comprehensive live stats centre to keep up with the scores. This takes a point or two away from the BonkersBet overall rating amongst other leading sports betting brands.
Casino Section Preview from BonkersBet casino
If your online betting tends to lean more toward the casino games, then BonkersBet has an exciting online casino to offer that is worth checking. It would be safe to say that the deficiencies in the sportsbook are made up for through the online casino.
The first impressive thing we noticed with the BonkersBet online casino is that they have monopolised on the gaming software providers. Instead, they have brought together over two dozen gaming software providers to offer a luxurious online casino that caters for every gamer’s tastes and likings. These include leading brands such as
Microgaming, NetEnt, Evolution Gaming, Pragmatic Play, NetEnt, 1X2 Gaming, and Leap.
With such a collaboration, you are assured of over a thousand different online casino games are available. The bulk of these games is in the online slots and video slots section. Here you will find a great variety of online slots, ranging from the classic 3-reel virtual machines to the modern 3D games themed around blockbuster movies.
At the table games section, there are quite some varieties of poker, roulette, blackjack, and baccarat. In this section, BonkersBet offers games such as
American Roulette, French Roulette, Atlantic City Blackjack, Hi-Lo Poker, Caribbean Stud and Texas Hold’em, among dozens of other varieties.
If you feel like luck is on your side, then you can check out the lotteries and scratch cards sections. There are 22 different lotteries with instant cash prizes. The jackpot slots section holds the real treasures as here you will find games with jackpot prizes rising to millions. Some popular titles that you ought to check out here include
Divine Fortunes, Mega Moolah, Mega Moolah Isis, Fruit Fiesta and Treasure Nile. In all, there are 19 jackpot slots games on offer.
One thing we found interesting with BonkersBet online casino is that they have included virtual sports as part of the online casino games. This is quite a different idea from the norm where virtual sports offered as part of the sportsbook. Though seemingly a section still under development, the virtual sports section does have some entertaining sports simulations offering good odds. The type of virtual sports offered here is virtual football, horse racing, velodrome, speedway, trotting, and greyhounds.
The virtual games developed by Leap Gaming and are offered in an instant play on-demand format. This means the games are not scheduled to kickoff at particular time intervals. Instead, you are the one to set the ball rolling at any moment. We did many test runs on virtual sports and found the quality of the animations to be outstanding.
100% Welcome Casino Offer
Similar to the sports betting section, BonkersBet has also put in place a welcome bonus package for their online casino section. This welcome package is meant for new sign-ups only. In this offer, you will be getting a 100% bonus on your first deposit, up to a maximum of
250 EUR. This means whatever amount you deposit as a new sign up, it will be double. In addition to the free bonus money, you will also be award 100 free spins which can be used to play at the Wicked Tales: Dark Red game.
To unlock this offer, your first deposit has to be at least
10 EUR. The bonus package comes with a 25X wagering requirement, which you must hit within 30 days from the day the bonus is credited to your account. Live casino in BonkersBet Preview from ‘Live casino’ in BonkersBet
In addition to the regular online casino games, BonkersBet is also home to a live casino. A live casino simulates a real casino environment. This is a section where you will find various table games, card games, and live lotteries, all hosted by live dealers. The action is stream through HD videos, complete with audio effects similar to those in a real brick and mortar casino.
At BonkersBet, you can play different variants of live roulette, live blackjack, live baccarat, live poker and the Dream Catcher wheel of fortune. The live poker lobby has different tables offering the various versions of this age-old casino game such as Triple Card Poker, Live Russian Poker; Casino Hold’em and Three Card Poker.
Deposits & Withdrawals
Ease of payment in an online casino is as important as the gaming services offered. For flexibility, BonkersBet has a cashier section that accepts multiple currencies such as GBP, USD, and EUR. The deposit and withdrawal options available are a combination of credit and debit cards, e-wallets and bank transfers.
In contrast to some other leading online gaming brands, the options here are relatively fewer. We have tabulated these deposit and withdrawal options that can be used here, with their respective amount limits and transaction timelines.

Instead, gamers will have to resort to using the mobile version of the BonkersBet website.
To access the mobile site, only open your favourite mobile browser and use the same URL as the main desktop site. In doing this review, we tested the performance of the mobile site across many mobile browsers such as Chrome and Opera, and we found the website to be working quite well on all these. The mobile site is a miniaturised version of the main desktop site, having been optimise for mobile gaming. The layout and colour schemes are the same. However, you might find the mobile site version to be a bit cluttered and harder to navigate. The menu bars and scrollable banners have been left in their original positions as the main site, making it appear congested and too busy. To find your way around the mobile site, you should use the retractable menu by clicking on the three mini-bars placed at the top-left corner of the home page. Aside from the design, the gaming services offered through the mobile site are quite similar to what you will have with the main site. The selection in the sportsbook, online casino, and live casino are all the same.
BonkersBet runs a robust affiliate marketing program. Their affiliate program is run in-house, rather than being managed as a part of a more extensive network. To join their team of affiliates, you will be required to fill in the form provided under the affiliates section on the website. In this form, you will provide your details including your affiliate site URL.

The program is a structure in tiers that are determined by your performance. The levels are ranks that you achieve based on the number of NDC’s you hit. The lowest grade for starters with 0 to 5 NDC’s is the Captain, where you earn commissions of 30%. This is followed by the Colonel, who brings in 6 to 15 NDC’s. A Colonel earns commissions of 35%. The highest rank is the Major with 16 or more NDC’s, and a commission of 40%.
Payments calculate every month, and this can be either via Skrill, Neteller or Bank Transfers. While doing this review, we did not encounter any negative reviews about the BonkersBet affiliate program, and thus we could conclude it is safe to do business here.

. [email protected] Company Information
BonkersBet is a relatively new entrant to the online gaming and betting business, having been launch in 2018. BonkerBet is owned and operated by the Velorum Corporation, a company that is based and registered in Curacao. It, therefore, follows that the BonkersBet gaming and online betting license issued under the Curacao Gaming Authority.
The site accepts and accommodates bets from gamers in various countries around the world, with a few exceptions. Most notable of these exceptions is the UK and USA, as BonkersBet does not serve the UK and American gaming markets, including their administrative territories. With an extra license such as from the Malta Gaming Authority, BonkersBet would have access to more markets. Nonetheless, BonkersBet still has a strong presence around other European countries, especially in Austria and Germany. To serve such a diverse market, the BonkersBet site offered in both English and German.
BonkersBet does not have the best customer support teams around. The first thing we noticed is that the support team is not available round the clock. The support team works from Monday to Friday between 10 am – 10 pm CET, and on Saturday between 2 pm – 10 pm CET. Also, there is no direct customer care phone number that you can use. Nonetheless, if you have an issue outside these working hours, you can still do an email to the support team or fill in the web form in the
‘Contact Us’ page, and they will surely get back to you in 24 to 48 hours.
As hinted above, BonkersBet does not have a direct customer support phone number. To reach them, you can use the email address or physical address below:
Email: ; [email protected] Physical address: Velorum Corporation N.V. Heelsumstraat 51, E-Commercepark, Vredenburg, Curaçao; Physical address in Germany: Click on this link for to see it. Google Maps Conclusion and Rating
With less than a year in operation, BonkersBet is a relatively new entrant in this market. By the look of things, the company has invested substantially in developing BonkersBet into a competitive online gaming platform. This is evidence in the types of promotions and bonuses offered, especially the Welcome Bonus packages.
Nonetheless, there is still a lot to be done to rank among leading online betting brands. For instance, the payment options are quite a few. The lack of alternative customer support means other than emails is also discouraging. Finally, their mobile gaming section also needs a revamp, with a better mobile site interface or even downloadable apps for easier gaming. Our final rating is
