Founded in 1997 Marathonbet is one of the more established online bookmakers you will find. Despite being in operation for well over a decade, not many gamblers are familiar with Marathonbet.
When compared against other major online bookmakers operating in Europe, such as Williamhill, Marathonbet is certainly much smaller in terms of member numbers. Despite this, Marathonbet has managed to build a small but loyal group of punters over the years, which continues to grow annually thanks to some great odds offered by Marathonbet. Below follows our complete Marathonbet review.
Marathonbet Strong Points
While not the largest online bookmaker you will find, it is certainly one of the best, below follows some of Marathonbet’s best features and complete review.
- Superb odds and extensive range of sports and markets to bet on
Thanks to being a bookmaker which purely focuses on sports betting, Marathonbet provides some of the best odds amongst all major sportsbooks. Marathonbet often runs their “Best Odds Guaranteed” promotion on certain events, beating the odds of all other bookmakers. If better odds are found elsewhere they will payout on the best odds found (T&C’s apply)
Besides, from offering superb odds, Marathonbet also offers a wide range of sports and markets to bet on. We have found Marathonbet’s rugby betting market to be especially attractive. Markets range as wide as, which player will be the tournament’s top try and point scorer, to which country will score the most tries in Super Rugby 2016. Now try to find that at other online sportsbooks.
- Superb Customer Service
Marathonbet like all major bookmakers offers online chat, email, and phone support options. However unlike most bookmakers, Marathonbet is extremely easy to get hold of.
There are rarely long waiting times for online support. Emails are answered within hours, which is certainly a positive compared to some other bookmakers which take 2-days to respond.
They also offer a very nice (user-friendly) “frequently asked questions” page and provide users with 24/7 support in:
English, French, Spanish, Chinese, German, Italian, Turkish, Serbian and Russian. If there was ever a multilingual bookmaker, Marathonbet takes the top spot!
- Wide Range Of Currencies, Deposit options And Countries Supported
It is always nice to gamble in your own currency and Marathonbet allows their users to do just that. Marathonbet supports currencies from over 32 countries ranging from the Turkish Lira to the South African Rand.
Furthermore, Marathonbet offers, what we, at rugby betting, have found to be the widest numbers of deposit options, with 25 supported payment methods.
Maranthonbet is truly a worldwide bookmaker. Users from all countries are welcome to join and open a Marathonbet account, with the exclusion of the United States, France, and Israel
- User Interface / Betting Platform
While it will be cruel to say Marathonbet has a bad betting platform, we can’t help to feel it lacks a bit when compared to betting platforms from other major sportsbooks such as Ladbrokes, PaddyPower, and others.
It is not that Marathonbet’s betting platform is bad or difficult to use, it is just that it looks….well a bit plain and is not very attractive to the eye.
Marathonbet Review Conclusion
There are few faults to be found with Marathonbet, offering a good signup bonus of £20 and offering some of the best odds in the business, Marathonbet is definitely recommended.
With all of the above considered we rank Marathonbet with a solid 4 out of 5 stars, definitely a sportsbook worth checking out!
