Novibet is the latest firm to attempt to break into the online betting industry in the UK and was launched as recently as summer 2016. As the name suggests, Novibet was launched by the country’s number one selling tabloid, The Sun, but this fact alone makes it one some customers want to avoid.
Given this fact, Novibet is likely to grow significantly over the next few years but for now new customers shouldn’t expect an all singing, all dancing platform as there are still gaps and lots of areas of potential still to cover. Novibet originally comes from Greece with a bigger presence in the European market, they are now focusing on expanding their operation across the UK.
In terms of the UK market at least, Novibet has been formed in the right place given that very few foreign firms break into the market with much success. This is because the UK itself has essentially been the home of betting shops over the decades and since then has been the home of the best new online betting firms, such as Bet365 and the game changing Betfair.
Naturally Novibet is in its infancy in the UK but it will be interesting to see what sort of market share they can generate over the next five years. For now though it remains very small.
Best Odds Guaranteed
Something Novibet does not offer is Best Odds Guaranteed, something which the majority of UK online bookmakers find crucial to offer their customers. This is a significant weakness as their odds will not be able to compete with their competition.
This is clearly an area of online gambling that Novibet needs to work on, however it is understandable that they will need to be given time to adapt to the UK market.
Betting Markets offered
Novibets’ selection of sports and betting markets is not in question with plenty to keep even regular football and tennis punters in particular occupied. The firm have less competitive prices in most markets and this is something that needs to be improved to compete with other online betting sites.
Offering plenty of markets on football, darts, racing, basketball, NFL, boxing and other sports, Novibet are fairly often not beating competitors on price and although offering the best price is a simple thing to get right, it’s very often the only thing punters are concerned with and is something a lot of big firms get wrong.
Technology wise Novibet are lacking a little something for now, but in terms of knowing what punters want they are in a very good position in coming from other European markets where the focus is predominantly on online sports betting.
Their in-play service then is something they will need improve on from the start and this is crucial for many punter and 21st century sports betting. They do run several offers on in-play events and the only thing missing is a quality live streaming service to go along with it.
Given Novibet’s lack of features and how new the firm is, it is perhaps no surprise that there is currently no live streaming offered on any of the platforms. Hopefully this is something that will come soon as given the escalating cost of satellite television and the fact that modern punters like to see a sport played out before making an informed betting decision, live streaming is becoming more and more essential to the common gambler.
Streaming is hopefully something Novibet will add as their platforms continue to grow but the cost of licensing and such is very prohibitive for new start-ups so we may be waiting a while just yet.
Novibet could do with more betting features and over the course of time we’re sure they’ll add plenty to their platform, but at least they do have a cash-out feature online and on the mobile apps allowing people to keep control of their betting.
On the their website, simply click ‘in-play’ to see which live bets you have running and below you will see your stake, original odds and ‘potential collect’ all listed in an easy to read format. Underneath this in a large green banner will be your current cash-out amount. If you think it may be worth taking the amount offered, simply click on the button and the funds will go into your account immediately.
A Novibet mobile App does not yet exist but given the age of the firm it’s hardly surprising that the offering is not readily available. Instead we have researched their mobile betting site and judged it in comparison to other online bookmakers.
The user interface on the mobile site and app is basic in terms of live events overview and market selection, this area certainly needs improvement as the months go on and Novibet look to increase their market share.
A better mobile/app and the integration of live streaming onto it would transform Novibet’s offering overnight for sure.
- Clear overview for in-play selections
- Basic interface
- Poor homepage structure
What Payment Methods are available?
Given that Novibet is new to the betting game they have a wide range of payment methods available on the platform. Novibet accepts all major credit and debit cards via Visa or MasterCard. Those who prefer PayPal, Skrill, Neteller or the PaySafe card are not left disappointed and it’s great that they allow PayPal depositors to claim their welcome offer.
The majority of customers have claimed to be paid out within 24 hours. What is also important to consider is that there are no limitations in place per month. That is the official line at least, though some customers have reported being paid out into their banks within a single business day which, if it becomes common practice, would be a major plus point.
