Mkekabet is still one of the less well-known bookmakers in America, but has gained significantly in popularity in recent months. The betting provider is at home in Estonia and has an EU license from local regulators. The betting platform was launched in 2009 through the acquisition of Omnibet.
The Lithuanian with the Australian passport Antanas Guoga is behind the provider. In the gambling scene, the businessman is known by his professional poker name TonyG. Guoga is one of the most renowned public figures in the Baltic States.
In our Mkekabet experience, the excellent basketball bets stand out. With regard to basket hunters, the bookmaker is always one step ahead of its competitors. American customers particularly appreciate the complete freedom from betting tax on the Bookie. The test also got good grades for the professional and dedicated customer support.
The Mkekabet betting offer
At first glance, there is a little surprise in the betting offer. While almost all other bookmakers promote king football separately, Mkekabet’s top priority is basketball. The bookie has secured an outstanding market position at this point. In our experience, there is no better basketball bet on any other betting provider on the Internet. A special focus is of course on the North American NBA. The European, national and international competitions are also represented above average. Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia and the Russian leagues still enjoy a small special position.
In the end, however, football is still in first place in terms of the quantity of offers – certainly due to the higher number of matches. Mkekabet has leagues from all over the world on the screen. The bookie focuses particularly on the English Premier League. The other mainstream sports such as tennis, ice hockey or handball are clearly behind the basketball offers in the ranking.
Depending on the season, Mkekabet has around 20 disciplines on offer. If you want to challenge your luck in the frame area, you can choose between darts, snooker or e-sports. The exotic bookmaker from Estonia, on the other hand, does not use real exotics. The sports sector is rounded off with numerous offers from politics and entertainment.
In the depth of the betting options, the spread is very, very wide. Often only a few selected special markets are available. In the English Premier League, however, Mkekabet comes up with some sensational 400 specials. In the Bundesliga, customers have a choice of around 200 options. A little criticism is that the additional offers are published very late – usually on the day of the match.
Live Mkekabet also cuts a very good figure. The real-time betting offer can be seen as a reflection of the pre-match sector. The online provider is obviously trying to provide variety, even if this does not always work day in and day out. The live offer is dominated by football, basketball and tennis.
After Mkekabet gave up a welcome offer for a long time, the provider has now impressively replenished. New customers currently receive a surcharge of exactly 100% up to a maximum of € 200 on their first deposit and thus twice as much as with most other bookmakers.
It starts with a minimum amount of ten euros. However, please note that the deposit may not be made via PayPal, Skrill, Netelller or Bitcoin, as no bonus is granted on these options. It is best to use our links in this article to be forwarded directly to the bookmaker. For free spins , the deposit amount must first be wagered 10 times within 30 days and then again within 5 days with sports betting. This relatively high rollover factor (11x in total) is offset by the low minimum rate of 1.65 . If these requirements are met, a payment can be requested.
You should definitely keep a special feature of the Mkekabet Bonus in mind. For free spins, a maximum of the amount originally deposited is added to each bet. For example, if your deposit was 50 euros, bets over 50 euros do not contribute to meeting the bonus conditions.
There are no restrictions with regard to the sports and betting markets – with one exception: sales of all bets on “even / odd” (for example on the total number of points scored in a basketball game) are not bonus-relevant. In addition, you have a free choice of all prematch, live and combination bets at Mkekabet.
The website and the mobile app
Those who expect a high quality and modern website from Mkekabet will not be disappointed. The betting provider works at a top level in terms of technology and design. If you want to find the famous hair in the soup, you can perhaps complain that the portal is a little too “colorful”. However, it is important that the functionality and user guidance are given from A to Z. From our point of view there are no objections in the Mkekabet test.
The tips can also be easily placed via smartphone or tablet. As a basis, Mkekabet offers an optimized website version in HTLM5 format, which is compatible with all common end systems. In addition, the Estonians also have a classic download app for iPhone and iPad in hand.
The side areas of Mkekabet
When a real poker professional acts as company boss, you really can’t speak of side areas. The poker arena and the online casino may be regarded as equivalent offers for sports betting. Mkekabet presents itself as a complete gaming provider and even adds an extra bit – the live games. In this section, customers can bet on lottery and dice games, among other things. The offers are ideal for enjoying the game in between.
The deposit and withdrawals at Mkekabet
The most important fact is that all Mkekabet deposits and withdrawals are processed free of charge. The transfer portfolio is a very good standard. Each type of player will find their desired payment method at the checkout. The classic credit cards from Visa and MasterCard including the associated debit versions with the same label are recognized. Bank deposits can be pushed to real-time level with Sofortüberweisung.de, GiroPay and Onlineüberweisung.de. Austrians can also use EPS. Customers who prefer the e-wallets can choose between Skrill by Moneybookers and Neteller. The mandatory prepaid double of Paysafecard and Ukash rounds off the payment offer.
The withdrawals take place in all technically possible ways, which have already been used in advance for a deposit. As an alternative, bank payment is generally possible. The internal processing of money orders at Mkekabet takes a maximum of 48 hours.
Mkekabet customer service
The Mkekabet customer service works professionally on a very good level. It is a pity that the English-speaking employees are not always available. Every now and then the users have to start several contact attempts. Basically, the support team is available every day from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. Mkekabet works via email and phone. However, there are some fees when calling because the bookie operates in Tallinn via a landline. There is currently no live chat at the online bookmaker.
Mkekabet security and seriousness
Antanas Guoga guarantees the safety of Mkekabet in the first place. The Lithuanian enjoys huge popularity in his home country. He is the recipient of the “World Lithuanian Award”, the highest award of the state. In 2014, Guoga also got into politics. He represents Lithuania in the European Parliament. He is probably the only bookmaker in the world who works in such a high political position. However, the businessman became known under his pseudonym TonyG as a poker professional. Even today, Antanas Guoga sits at the world’s top-class gaming tables.
Mkekabet itself is based in Tallinn and works with a valuable EU license from the Estonian Gaming Authorities. Although it is not a license from Malta or Gibraltar, security can be 100 percent confirmed here. The license ensures a legally perfect betting environment – explicitly also for American customers. The Bookie attaches great importance to security. New customers are prompted to complete the identification check immediately upon registration.
Mkekabet is also known in the Baltic States as an expansive sports sponsor. Here too the “love” for the basket hunters becomes very clear. Mkekabet supports the Lithuanian basketball association and is also a sponsor of the two top international clubs from Klaipeda and Vilnius. In addition, Mkekabet is partner of the highest football league in Estonia. At the international level, the bookie, as general partner of the Porsche Carrera Cup, has collected its spurs.
Mkekabet works with a fairly constant quota key of 93 percent. At this point, the balance of the offers should be emphasized in particular. The top leagues rarely go up to a high level, but on the other hand the betting odds for the less important sporting events hardly occur. Trends towards favorites or outsiders could not be identified in the Mkekabet test either.
Tip: Several times a week, Mkekabet picks up a few matches from the most important football leagues, in which the quota key is raised to a sensational 99 percent. Every betting odds junkie should access this. The games will be advertised separately by email.
From a American perspective, Mkekabet is lucrative anyway. The online bookmaker bears the entire costs for the local betting tax from its own wallet. Customers do not come into contact with the tax on won or lost betting slips. For example, anyone wagering 200 euros on a betting odds of 3.0 will receive the full 600 euros in the event of success.
Mkekabet is of course the “ideal playground” for all basketball fans – but not only. The betting offer is very attractive overall. The balanced betting odds with tax exemption are positive. All deposits and withdrawals are free of charge. The transfers are safe and quick. The new customer bonus can convince thanks to an attractive amount (maximum 200 euros) and the fair minimum quota. The online casino and poker arena also deserve very good grades. There is absolutely no doubt about the seriousness of Mkekabet.
