Betsafe first opened their doors in January of 2006 and immediately attracted attention, mainly because of their promises of lightning fast support. The original backers – primarily Norwegians – put all their experience from the gaming sector into developing the product, and this trend has continued after Betsafe was bought by the Swedish Betsson Group in May of 2011.
A huge selection of sports are covered. Aside from the obvious, such as soccer, handball, ice hockey, basketball, and tennis, they also offer a very decent selection of especially winter sports, while there are even odds for somewhat smaller, but still important, areas like harness racing, golf, baseball, cycling, track and field, and motorsport. The Scandinavian roots are reflected in the selections, which also include bandy and floorball. In addition, there are various special games, such as the Eurovision Song Contest and Politics.
Betsafe is good about placing odds on special results (e.g. H2H seasonal games), if a user sends them a request.
Types of games
Betsafe offers a relatively decent selection of game types for individual events, soccer clearly being the sport that has the highest number of game variations.
This varies quite a bit from league to league, and where the large leagues have a huge selection, it is often more sparse for secondary leagues. For a large number of soccer matches, there are more than 120 different games, ranging from over/under (with several different lines) to goal scores and half-time game to player specials, but the matches do need to garner some attention to reach that level. The “normal” number of games for a given match is typically at 30-40.
For ice hockey, there are often results and goal games for the individual periods, and generally, the number of game types is at 15-20 for ice hockey matches. For tennis, you can usually play 5-10 different games, including set games, over/under, and handicap.
Betsafe’s livebetting has undergone significant development over the last few years, and today is one of the most active – both in regard to games offered and game type selections. Where livebetting was previously limited to televised soccer, handball, and tennis matches, it has now expanded far beyond this, and for livebetting, they are starting to cross swords with even the strongest of competitors.
