Evobet is another new entrant into the iGaming market. The site that was launched just recently in 2018 is another product of the CW Marketing BV Company, a company that has in the recent past churned out a series of new online casinos and sportsbooks such as Campeonbet and Svenbet. This company is registered and headquartered in Curacao. It, therefore, follows that the Government of Curacao does the online gaming license and regulations.
Evobet is an open gaming site that accepts players from virtually every part of the world, except a few countries such as Australia, Greece, USA, UK, and Italy. The site is particularly popular in the European region, especially in Denmark, Germany, Finland, and Norway. For this reason, you will realise that you can switch the default browsing language on the Evobet site from English to Dutch, Norwegian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Finnish and Russian.
This article is a detailed review of Evobet, from the casino to the sportsbook and any other gaming services offered here. At the end of this casino review, we will give an overall rating, based on the quality offered here relative to other leading brands in the industry.
How to register at Evobet?
If it is your first time playing at this site, then you will be required to set up a gaming account. The account registration process is quite easy to hack even for novice gamers. All you need to get your account up and running and start betting is a valid email address.
- Once you open the main Evobet homepage, scroll to the top right corner and click a green button indicated ‘REGISTER’.
- A small popup window will appear prompting you to provide your email address and preferred password. You should always ensure you use a password that is hard enough to crack but still easy for you to remember. The trick is to combine different characters in the password including numbers and symbols.
- The third and last step of account registration is where you provide your full name, date of birth, country of residence, address and phone number. It is important to note that you cannot later modify these personal details once the account is registered.
Activating and verifying a new account
After setting up your gaming account, you will have access to most of the services offered by Evobet. You can make a deposit right away and start betting on sports or casino games. However, you will realise that some of the critical account services will be inaccessible or inactive. These include making withdrawals from your account. Such services will only become active once your account verified.
Verification is an integral KYC process used by online gaming sites to collect more details about you. That enables the site to authenticate the biodata you gave, such as your age, to ensure you are of legal age limit. The verification process also allows the company to operate within the various legal statutes that fight vices such as money laundering.
To verify your account, you will have to provide Evobet with some crucial documents. These are documents meant to prove your identity and age, your physical address and your source of funds. For identification, you can use a scanned copy of your national ID, driver’s license or passport. To authenticate your address, you can send any recent utility bill that is no older than three months.
Once you have logged into your new Evobet account, click the ‘My Profile’ tab at the top menu bar of the homepage then click on the ‘VERIFY ACCOUNT’ tab. Here you will find a portal that you can easily use to upload your documents, rather than having to send them as emails to the support team. Once you have uploaded your documents via this portal, Evobet promises a turnaround time of 72 hours. However, based on our experience here, the account verification process takes as much as five business days. If you have submitted your documents but are yet to get any feedback days later, it is advisable you contact the customer support team for an update.
How to recover a lost password?
We have all had instances where we can’t quite remember our online accounts’ passwords. If this is the case while playing at Evobet, you can easily reset your password and regain access to your account. Simply click the login button at the top right corner of the page. On the pop-up window that appears, click the ‘Forgot Password?’ Link. That will prompt you to provide the email address that you used to register the account with. Within a minute or so, you will receive an email with instructions on how you can reset your Evobet account password.
Once you have logged into your account, you can still change or modify your account password. To do this modification, go to the My Profile section then click on the ‘Change Password’ tab. Here you will be prompted to provide your old password before you can set your new password.
Website Design – Structure and Navigation
As the saying goes, first impressions are lasting. The first impression created by the Evobet website inspires adventures through the jungles. The site has a predominantly dark background, with lush green highlights used to bring out the various page borders and control buttons.
The most basic account control buttons are placed at the top section of the page. Towards the top right corner, you will find the buttons to access your account profile, your bonuses page, your bet history and also set the default site language. With Evobet, you can switch from English to German, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Russian, Finnish and Norwegian.
Right below these control buttons is the main navigation menu bar, which holds the buttons for switching from the casino to the live dealer, sportsbook, live betting and virtual sports section. The midsection of the homepage seems quite chaotic to say the least. As it is the norm with most gaming sites, the midsection is dominated by flashy sliders that highlight key promos, tournaments or new games at the casino.
Below these sliders is an effort to put extra navigation tabs for the casino, live casino, sportsbook and promotions pages. Right below these small tabs are tabs to the most popular casino games of the days. This sandwiching pretty much drowns out the navigation tabs, making them barely noticeable.
By most standard, the Evobet homepage is not the best organised nor is the layout the easiest to navigate. Probably it is keeping in line with the jungle theme. However, if you take some time to familiarise yourself with the layout, you will eventually get accustomed to the layout and find your way around the various sections of the gaming site.
Betting on Sports
Despite being relatively new to the market, Evobet has brought on board one of the most comprehensive sportsbooks you will find, especially in the new entrants. The Evobet sportsbook is not only impressive based on the variety of sports offered, but also in terms of the layout, design and navigation options of this page.
The first thing to notice is you can switch the sportsbook page layout from either Classic mode or Asian mode. These two modes change everything about the sportsbook page, from the odds format to the general layout. In classic mode, you will have your betslip aligned to the right side, with the sports categories laid out towards the far left side of the page. The mid-section displays the various betting markets available in the particular sport you have selected.
In the Asian view mode, the layout is quite different in terms of the odds format and the betting markets available. You will also realise you can play around with the sportsbook layout by switching from to either the Event View, Dashboard, Live Multiview, and Live Calendar. We will review the Live Multiview and Live Calendar sections in more detail later in this review.
The sportsbook also has a ‘Results’ section that you can use to keep up with the results and outcomes from all kinds of sports that Evobet sportsbook supports. With most live results pages, you will only get results from major sporting events such as the EPL and big tournaments. With Evobet, they have gone a step further and compiled the results page in more detail. Here, you can view the results from all sports category, including e-sports and virtual sports as well.
Aside from the aesthetics of the sportsbook layout, Evobet has quite a lot of content to offer. The variety of sports to bet on here ranges from popular and less known sporting disciplines such as:
- Aussie Rules
- ski jumping
The sportsbook here is so comprehensive that you will also find sports that are seldom available in mainstream sportsbooks such as sumo and freestyle wrestling.
In addition to these regular sports, the Evobet sportsbook also features an e-sports section which gives you betting markets on some of the most popular e-sport and video games. These include games such as Call of Duty, Warcraft, Dota 2, Counter-Strike GO and League of Legends.
Here you can also bet on other non-sports related events such as upcoming political elections and popular TV shows and movies. Some of the most noticeable betting markets in these categories include Game of Thrones, which is arguably one of the most popular TV shows of modern times. You will also find a ‘Special Bets’ section where there are betting markets on various issues around the world such as the next Pope, race to space, bets on the Royal Family and even on celebrities such as Kim Kardashian.
With such a vast collection of sports and non-sports categories to bet on, then you can expect to have endless betting options. Evobet offers you hundreds of betting markets, spanning across the various betting categories offered in their sportsbook. The most comprehensive of these markets is in the football betting section. Evobet allows you to be on more than a thousand football matches from various leagues and tournaments around the world. Each of these football matches will have over 200 betting options, cutting across the markets in FT. HT. 1X2, O/U, Correct Score, Double Chance, First/Last Goal and Total Goals scored.
At the racing sports such as the motocross and auto racing, you will have betting markets on outright winners as well as position bets. The rest of the sports come complete with their respective betting options. Basically, on any given day, you will have well over a thousand different betting markets to participate.
As hinted earlier in this Evobet sportsbook review, you have the option to switch the type of odds format to use. Here you can choose to use either decimal or fractional odds. Besides, you can decide to switch the mode of view from the classical sportsbook view to the Asian view, giving you access to different forms of betting options.
In terms of the value of the odds offered, we found Evobet offering their odds at the average market prices. We did not find anything outstanding in terms of the prices, relative to other leading sportsbooks in the markets.
Welcome Sbook Bonus – Up to €150 for New Customers
To give you a boost as you start your sports betting journey, Evobet gives you quite an impressive and attractive welcome bonus package. This welcome bonus is dedicated for deposits made towards the sportsbook section only. In this package, your first deposit will get a 50% boost of up to €150. This first deposit must be of at least €/20.
To get the welcome bonus money, you do not need any promo codes. Instead, you are required to opt into the promo by going to your account dashboard then click the ‘Bonuses’ tab. In the pop-up page displayed, scroll to the ‘Sportsbook’ section and click the claim bonus button.
You should ensure you do this before making the first deposit for the bonus to be automatically processed to your account.
The bonus free play money comes with a ten times wagering requirement on bets with odds of 2.0 or higher. You will have up to 30 days to meet this target before the bonus is invalidated.
Now comparing Evobet
Live Betting on Sports
In addition to placing the regular pre-match sports bets, Evobet allows for in-play bets on live events. The company seems to take this market quite seriously, that they have set the live sports betting section as a stand-alone category. To view the live events open for in-play betting, click the ‘LIVE’ tab at the main navigation menu. Interestingly, the in-play betting feature is not locked to football only but is available for any other sports that can practically support in-play bets.
To help you keep track of all the live event and their kickoff schedules, Evobet has developed a Live Calendar. This calendar gives you a lineup of a whole week’s upcoming live events from the various sporting categories offered.
Cash Out Option
Fortunately, Evobet offers a cash-out option for their sportsbook. This is very good news to many sports betting enthusiast as cashouts are becoming a great way for cutting back losses accrued when a game goes south. You can use it on many sports on the platform while betting live.
Evobet also provide a live streaming option for live events, but not for every game. For some of them, you can watch live video. Instead, the site has put in place an interactive live betting section that comes complete with animations. These animations are not of players in the event, but instead of the action itself such as attempts on goal and the overall ball possession. You will realise some live events will not have many detailed animations, but the best of it all found in the football matches.
You can also select to view the live graphics from multiple events at a time. That is made possible through the Live Multiview feature. Once you click on this page, you can drag into view any of the matches you are interested in. These matches or events will be laid out in large tabs alongside each other, giving you an easy way to follow all the action concurrently, despite the missing live streaming option.
Virtual Sports Section
Evobet is also home to virtual sports. For those still new to this type of betting, virtual sports are 3D simulations of actual sports such as football, horse racing, and greyhounds. The simulations are presented in live video streams, giving you a real sporting experience. At the Evobet virtual sports page, their virtual football matches, virtual greyhounds, virtual horse racing, virtual tennis, virtual car racing, and virtual bicycle racing.
All virtual sports are offered at specific time intervals. The kickoffs are scheduled to start every three to five minutes, depending on the particular sport you are interested in. The betting markets here are designed to resemble those in a real-life sportsbook, though the results are independent of real-life events.
The virtual football is offered in two formats; regular matches and penalty kicks. The virtual penalty kicks pit one national team against the other in penalty shootouts. Yours is to bet on the eventual outcome, based on markets similar to those of an actual sportsbook. The second virtual football format is similar to an actual football match being compressed to show the key highlights only. Here you will also have betting options similar to those of the real-life football matches.
Betconstruct powers all the matches and races in the Evobet virtual sports section. In the recent past, there have been signs that Evobet intends to introduce more virtual games from Inbet, though this is still work in progress.
Other than sports betting, Evobet is also home to a vibrant online casino. The Evobet online casino brings together online casino games provided by 28 different online gaming software providers. This huge collaboration ensures the site has one of the largest and richest online casino games catalogues you will find anywhere, with well over a thousand games to offer.
The Evobet online casino games catalogue cuts across online slots, table games, card games, video poker, live lotteries, scratch cards, and progressive jackpots. As it is the norm with most online casinos, the largest section here is the slots section. Here you will find all types of online slots ranging from classic slots to video slots. Some of the popular titles worth checking out include Starburst, Gonzos Quest and Scrolls of Ra.
The table and card games sections are equally impressive, with a collection of diverse variations of traditional casino games such as poker, blackjack, and roulette. If you are looking for some online Bingo action, then you should check out the ‘Other Games’ section. In this section, Evobet casino gives you different types of Bingo and Keno games with instant cash prizes.
Evobet Casino Welcome Bonus – Up to €500 Casino Welcome Bonus
Similar to the sportsbook, the online casino as well as an exclusive welcome offer for the new signups. In this welcome casino bonus, your first deposit towards the casino section will get doubled up to a whopping €500. Just as with the sportsbook bonus, you are also required to opt into the offer before you make the first deposit. You can opt in by clicking the ‘CLAIM’ button in the bonuses page. Once you have claimed the bonus, you can proceed to make your first deposit, and the free play money will automatically be deposited to your account. The first deposit has to be of at least €30 to activate the bonus.
You should take note that the welcome bonus package comes 40X wagering requirement, which should be met within 30 days. Although the wagering requirement seems prohibitively high, it will be much easier to meet it considering the variety of casino games available here.
Live Casino Section
To complete the realistic casino environment is a live casino lobby. In this section, Evobet offers casino games hosted by live dealers. This section offers you up to 32 different live dealer gaming lobbies. The live dealer games are also powered by different software providers, such as NetEnt, Evolution, Ezugi, Lucky Streak and Betconstruct. With each of these providers, you will notice that the design and mode of play of these live dealer games change quite substantially. This is a good thing since it means you can have a taste of different live casino lobbies while still logged into the site.
Some of the live dealer games you will find here include Baccarat Super 6, Auto Roulette, Dragon Tiger Live and Extreme Texas Hold Em. But the live dealer games section is not all about table and card games only as you can also play other types of games such as Dream Catcher, Live Keno and Bet on Numbers HD.
Deposits and Withdrawals
For the movement of cash in and out of your account, the payment options at Evobet are relatively limited compared to other leading online gaming sites. That is especially so for withdrawals, where you will find that you cannot use credit and debit cards such as MasterCard to cash out. In the table below, we have compiled the payment methods applicable here as well as their transaction limits;
|Payment Method||Deposit Minimum||Deposit Maximum||Time for Deposit|
|Pass N Go||€20||€2500||Instantly|
|Payment Method||Withdrawal Minimum||Withdrawal Maximum||Time for Withdrawal|

|Pass N Go|

You will also realise that Evobet accepts the transaction in some currencies. You will have the chance to choose the currency you prefer to use during the account registration process.
Evobet Mobile Version
Evobet supports gaming on the go through mobile phones and tablets. However, this is only possible through the mobile version of the Evobet website. The company is yet to develop any stand-alone gaming apps for neither Android nor iOS mobile phones.
Nonetheless, the mobile site version still does a good job and is up to the task. While doing this review, we tried playing some casino games on an android phone as well as an iPhone and found the mobile site to be quite impressive.
The user interface of the mobile site version seemed better and more organised than that of the main desktop site.
If you are wondering how you will get the link to the mobile site version, you need not get any special URLs for this. Simply open your favourite mobile browser and type in the URL evobet.com. The site will automatically switch to the mobile version.
As we mentioned earlier in this review, Evobet is part of a lineup of online casinos owned by the CW Marketing BV company. It, therefore, follows that the Evobet affiliate marketing program run as a joint program with the rest of the online casinos such as Campeon and Svenbet. The affiliates managed under the Campeon Gaming Partners program.
Based on our review, this is one of the highest affiliate marketing programs, with commissions being as much as 60% of the net revenue generated. The commissions are payable every month, with a promise to process all payments within ten days from the issuance of the monthly invoice.
To join the Evobet affiliate marketing team, you will need to have an internet resource such as a website or blog with considerable traffic. You should then apply through the affiliate program site and wait for the application approval. The process tends to take some time, which could be as much as a week. If approved, then you will have joined a vibrant affiliate marketing program where you will be receiving regular support in the form of banners and flyers for your website.

Conclusion and Rating
In many areas, Evobet has done an impressive job. That is particularly considering the variety of betting markets available for both the sportsbook and online casino. The collection here is quite impressive. Even with the absence of a live streaming feature for every game, you can still follow the action using the live feeds on the website.
Our main issue of concern here was with the quality of customer service according. Customer support is such an integral part of online business, and the lack of it or making it hard to access the support team is quite bad for business. Besides, the payment options are minimal, especially when it comes to withdrawals.
