No, ForteBet is not a new betting provider. The bookmaker has been on the market since 2014, but has more or less concentrated on markets outside of USA in recent years. The past few months have shown that the sports betting providerwith Scandinavian roots increasingly shifting his gaze towards Central Europe. For us, this was of course reason enough to carry out a detailed ForteBet test. Can the bookmaker keep pace with the market leaders when comparing bets? What are the strengths and weaknesses? In our ForteBet experience, we have put together all the relevant details on the betting offer, the sports betting tax, the betting odds, the welcome offer, the deposits and withdrawals as well as customer service. We want to go into the plus and minus points in the test report.
We can already add an essential detail. ForteBet has long ceased to be an insider tip for users who place their betting tips primarily on the UFC, the MMA or on boxes. The betting provider can actually be called the market leader in this special section.
If you look at the betting offer based on our ForteBet experience, you will find a total of over 50 disciplines . The value is of course exceptional, but it is a little misleading in comparison. Numerous individual sports – for example in e-sports – are listed in a separate section, which are summarized by other competitors. Nevertheless, the overall width of the betting offer can be seen as above average. The UFC series , the MMA competitions and normal boxing occupy a special position . It’s about martial arts, ForteBet has already developed into the market leader. The portfolio contains a rich selection of fights every day that you will hardly find in any other bookmaker.
Football bets are, of course, the most strongly represented . The round leather leads the betting offer at a clear distance. All high-class national and international leagues can be played, starting with the Champions and Europa League, the English Premier League and the German Bundesliga to the Italian series and the Spanish La Liga. This does not mean that the end of the flagpole is reached, on the contrary. ForteBet is on the ball all over the world, including in Ethiopia, Nepal, India, Trinidad and Tobago, Qatar, Gambia and Mauritania. ” Exotic ” soccer tips can still be played and still.
The youth and amateur areas are logically not neglected either. The basketball and ice hockey offers can be classified as almost error-free , each with the North American professional leagues , i.e. the NBA and the NHL, at the top. In tennis, the ATP and WTA tournaments are flanked by the encounters of the Challenger and ITF tours. Other important disciplines include motorsport with Formula 1 at the top, rugby, American football, handball, volleyball or baseball.
The no. 1 in the side area is e-sport . According to our ForteBet experience, all relevant competitions are represented in the portfolio, that is – the League of Legendes, Dota2, Counter Strike or StarCraft 2. Other side sports include water polo, Gaelic sports, 3 × 3 basketball, beach volleyball, speedway or squash . The pure ForteBet experience is rounded off by numerous betting offers from politics, society and TV entertainment.
In the depth of the betting options, the ForteBet Test shows a flawless online provider who has to show all relevant markets. The number of possible uses naturally fluctuates between the sports and the importance of the events. In the highest football leagues, the bookmaker has well over 300 betting markets per game.
ForteBet’s live bets can be seen as a reflection of the pre-match area. Every month, the betting provider has over 30,000 live betting offers on the screen. Of course, the real-time portfolio is led by the usual mainstream, that is – football, tennis, ice hockey and basketball. However, it was evident in the ForteBet test that the online provider strives to ensure maximum variety. Edge disciplines such as water polo, cricket, beach volleyball or badminton are not neglected “in play”.
It is worth praising in the experience report that the necessary breadth and depth are available live. ForteBet not only offers the most important leagues in real time, but also numerous, underclass youth groups, especially in football. The number of live betting markets available is above average.
After registering, the new customers will of course start with an ForteBet bonus. Each user can secure a maximum of additional betting capital of up to 200 euros. It should be noted, however, that this is a double betting bonus, i.e. the first two deposits are rewarded. Specifically, the welcome offer looks like this:
- Deposit : 50% up to 100 euros
- Deposit : 25% up to 100 euros
The minimum deposit required is ten euros each. If you want to take advantage of the maximum ForteBet bonus in the first step, you have to make a contribution of 200 euros. In the second step, a deposit of 400 euros is already necessary. The new customer bonus will be activated before the deposit in the player lounge. A classic ForteBet bonus code does not have to be entered. It is important that only deposits with Klarna Sofort or SafeCharge are recognized as premium-relevant. All other transfer methods are excluded in the terms and conditions.
In our comparison, it is not enough for ForteBet to take a top position. Users who are always looking for the highest betting odds will not find what they are looking for at the online provider. Instead, ForteBet ranks in the stable midfield. The quota key averages around 93 percent. When it comes to top highlights, things go up a bit, but not at the market leader level. The marginal sports, however, drop only slightly. ForteBet always stays above the seriousness line of 90 percent, even with live bets. The betting odds are stable. The fluctuations just before the start of the game can be neglected in the test report. We have also not identified any particular tendencies towards favorites or outsiders.
The betting odds for UFC and MMA as well as for e-sports deserve a separate assessment. The betting odds key is not higher here than in other sports, but in the bookmaker comparison ForteBet outshines the number of competitors here. If you actually prefer martial arts or e-sports with your betting tips, you can undoubtedly bet on top offers.
Deposits and withdrawals
In the ForteBet experience report, it can be positively preceded that all deposits and withdrawals are made free of charge . The transfer offer at the cash register is a good standard. Every user will find their desired payment methods. Credit cards from Visa and MasterCard, including the associated debit versions, are of course recognized. The prepaid codes of the Paysafecard are very suitable for smaller deposits. Classic bank transfers are carried out in real time with the direct booking systems from Klarna Sofort and Rapid. The e-wallet offer includes Skrill, Ozan, Neteller and EcoPayz. The new mobile payment method from MuchBetter is also on board. In our experience, ForteBet adapts the payment methods country-specifically.
Payments are made reliably and smoothly. The internal processing of the withdrawal takes a maximum of 48 hours. Bank transfers and credit card bookings are usually available after three to five working days. If technically possible, ForteBet will pay out the winnings using the previous payment method. Every user has to go through the mandatory legitimation check before the first payment . The usual KYC documents are to be submitted, that is – a photo ID and a more recent address confirmation.
Website and app
In our ForteBet experience, the design of the homepage takes some getting used to. The sports betting provider works with a compact display, the handling of which takes a little getting used to. In the basic setting, the sports are only shown on the left at the edge of the image using symbols. The font display can be inserted using the three-stripe button. Since the website is divided into four columns, it becomes a bit confusing when the individual events are shown.
However, if you are a little familiar with the website, you will quickly become familiar with the navigation processes in practice. It is positive that quick links to the betting highlights are used above the discipline list. Furthermore, certain betting functions, such as the cashout option, are shown in advance in the form of a symbol. In the betting slip you can choose between single, system and combination bets as well as additional betting chains via the drop-up point. The various main gambling areas can be found in the main menu in the website header. When logged in, the personal player lounge can also be controlled at the top right.
ForteBet optically uses a dark look in blue and black. The bright fonts are easy to read. The flags , advertising menus and smaller detail images provide the necessary color dots . Overall, the optics and graphics can be rated as appealing, at which point a) it is a subjective impression and b) the homepage is certainly not an outstanding highlight.
The evaluation of the desktop area can be transferred to the mobile ForteBet app without compromise . Customers have access to the entire betting range on the go, without any restrictions. It is not necessary to download the ForteBet app. The betting provider works with a responsive website version that can only be selected in the browser. The web app then adapts to any new smartphone or tablet. In the ForteBet test, the mobile website was shown to be compatible in iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone.
Customer service deserves a good grade in the ForteBet test. The betting provider works with a great service team that can be reached almost around the clock. Contact will be made in writing via live chat or by email. The inquiries are answered individually, helpful and in detail. According to our experience, there is no telephone hotline.
Manual support is also flanked by an extensive FAQ menu . Almost all relevant information on the bookmaker’s internal process and the sports betting rules can be found on the website. In practice, it will very rarely be necessary to contact ForteBet Support.
License and security
The question of ForteBet fraud or serious can be answered positively in the experience report, although there is no large, well-known company behind the sports betting platform. The bookmaker label is backed by Vivaro Limited , which was founded in 2008. The company is considered serious and has earned a good reputation in recent years . ForteBet has an EU license from the Malta Gaming Authority. The approval of the Mediterranean state provides a legally secure framework for sports betting.
Great importance is attached to player protection. When registering, each user can set their first individual deposit limits, which can then be adjusted in the player lounge. As a basic setting, the following limits are specified in the registration form:
- Daily limit: 1,000 euros
- Weekly limit: 5,000 euros
- Monthly limit: 10,000 euros
There are also limits for losses and stakes. In an emergency, the customer can choose temporary breaks or complete exit routes. There is also a test on the website that can be used to analyze your own gaming behavior. According to our ForteBet experience in addiction prevention, we work together externally with BeGambleAware.
In our ForteBet experience, the data protection regulations are also complied with without error. Customer information is transmitted using secure 128-bit SSL encryption. Afterwards, the players’ records are managed offline and never passed on to outside third parties.
