Pstbet has been around since 2012. The online bookmaker has more or less lived in the shadows in recent years. This will certainly not remain the case. The sports betting provider has gone on the offensive in recent months to increase its level of awareness. For us, this was of course a reason to conduct a detailed Pstbet test. What betting offer can the bookmaker come up with? At what level are the odds and limits? How do deposits and withdrawals work and when can customer support be reached? Can the Pstbet bets be placed mobile via smartphone or tablet? Furthermore, we naturally answer the most important question in the Pstbet experience: Is the online provider serious and secure?
It can already be said in advance in the test report that Pstbet has opted for a very own way that differs significantly from the mainstream in sports betting provider comparison. The betting portfolio is tailored in detail to the needs of local customers, directly without any ifs and buts and without any frills. In addition, Pstbet is without question a perfect alternative for betting professionals, based on the odds level and the possible betting limits.
Those who expect a huge, wide range of bets will certainly be a little disappointed in our Pstbet experience. The bookmaker has a clear focus. Only events that are actually requested and requested by users are included in the portfolio. Overall, Pstbet only comes up with a good ten disciplines, with slight seasonal fluctuations. The clear number “one” at this point is of course the king of football. The round leather sets the tone in the betting program with a huge gap. You can put your tips on all relevant European games, starting with the Champions League and the Europa League, of course, but also switching to Mexico, Bolivia, Indonesia or Uganda. It is positive to point out that Pstbet does not only have the top leagues in the respective countries, but also the youth and amateur encounters are not neglected. In USA, for example, it goes down to the fifth-rate league. Of course, the four Grand Slam tournaments of the year come first in tennis. Pstbet also has the complete ATP and WTA series on the screen. However, the Challenger and ITF meetings are dispensed with.
Ice hockey, basketball, handball, American football and baseball follow the two top sports in the list of disciplines. Boxing and rugby users will also find what they are looking for. However, if you want to find real marginal sports in the portfolio, you won’t find anything in our Pstbet experience. There are also no additional betting offers from the political and TV entertainment sections.
In the depth of the betting options, the betting provider remains true to its path. “Only” those markets are offered that really have a corresponding customer frequency. The offer includes, among other things, half-time / final betting, some handicaps, draw no bet tips, the double chance and goals over / under versions. In our experience, Pstbet has almost 30 possible uses per game in the most important football leagues.
Live betting: Super-fast odds updates ensure the best live offers
The live bets can be seen as a reflection of the pre-match offers. The sports events from the regular program can usually be found in the live center after kick-off. Logically, football and tennis are clearly in the first place. If you want to put “in-play” on basketball, ice hockey, volleyball or handball, you will also get a chance.
Particularly noteworthy are the super-fast live odds adjustments. At this point, the makers of Pstbet have many years of experience and corresponding modules. The betting provider does not buy the betting odds, but processes them itself in real time. The advantage for customers is evident. If you want to place live tips on the best betting odds on the market, you are in very good hands with Pstbet,although the online provider of course does not have the highest odds on the screen for every game outcome. Nevertheless, the makers of Pstbet have honestly worked out the market advantage with a huge personnel machine. A total of 180 people are employed by the company and the affiliated partners in order to continuously generate the most valuable offers. In addition, the bookmaker still has over 1,500 game watchers worldwide who are responsible for the current transmission of events.
Betting bonus: The new customer offer
So far, Pstbet has always waived a betting bonus for new customers. There is currently no corresponding welcome offer. However, this will not remain the case. It will happen in a few days. The first Pstbet Bonus will be launched. We will of course provide you with the relevant information at this point after the launch. The clock ticket backwards. The Pstbet Bonus is literally on the approach.
We also assume that it will not remain with a new customer bonus. If the online bookmaker wants to establish itself successfully on the market in the long term, he cannot avoid coupon campaigns for regular players. We are certain that there will be corresponding promos for existing customers in 2019.
We have already dealt with the particularity of betting odds in the area of live betting. Behind Pstbet are experienced bookmakers who can come up with their own odds. This fact is by no means a matter of course in today’s betting scene. The large number of sports betting providers buy offers from external companies, so that there are numerous identical offers when comparing quotas. Pstbet can, however, provide unique selling points with its own structure and orientation.
In our experience with Pstbet, the online provider has a very, very good quota key of around 95 percent.The bookmaker is undoubtedly one of the top companies in the industry. In very important football matches, including in the English Premier League, in the Spanish La Liga and in the German Bundesliga, the betting odds key even increases a little. In some cases Pstbet even breaks the 97% mark. In the case of unimportant encounters, a slight weakening of the mathematical approach to payment is evident, but more or less insignificant. The quality of the Pstbet bookmakers can be seen in the stability of the betting odds. The offers remain rock solid even shortly before the start of the game. We couldn’t identify any particular tendencies towards favorites or outsiders in the Pstbet test. The odds are very balanced so that any sports betting strategy can be implemented successfully.
At this point, a word about the limits is inserted. Pstbet is not only technically suitable for the high rollers, but can also offer appealing application and profit opportunities. The minimum game amount per betting slip is one euro. You can play a maximum of 4,000 euros per ticket. The maximum profit per bet and week is set at 100,000 euros in the terms and conditions.
Deposits and withdrawals
The transfer offer may not be huge, but in our Pstbet experience it is completely sufficient. It is positive that all deposits and withdrawals are processed free of charge. The deposits are possible between ten and 5,000 euros per transaction. Credit cards from Visa and MasterCard including the associated debit version are of course recognized at the cash register. If you want, you can also use the simple Bank Maestro card, provided that it has the necessary cover. Customers who prefer an e-wallet can choose between Skrill and Neteller. Bank transfers are credited to the player’s account in real time using the direct booking systems from Klarna Sofort and GiroPay.
In our experience, disbursements are possible from 20 euros. The maximum withdrawal amount per week is fixed in the general terms and conditions at 20,000 euros. If technically possible, Pstbet works according to the rules of the closed money cycle. Winnings will be refunded via the deposit method. Before the first payout, of course, every player must successfully pass the mandatory authentication check based on the KYC documents. A photo ID and a new address confirmation must be submitted. In practice, if all the requirements for a winnings requirement are met, it is very quick. Typically, Pstbet only needs a few hours to process the user’s payment request.
Website and app: simple structure understandable within a few seconds
The navigation of the website should be clear to even beginners within a few seconds. Pstbet works with a simple, self-explanatory website structure.On the left side of the picture you can see the sports clearly listed. The submenus then go to the countries, leagues and competitions. The disciplines can also be controlled via a roll menu in the middle of the website. In the upper area there are also quick links to the top football leagues. Other quick connections are available for the top games, favorites (selectable) and long-term bets. The main, upcoming highlights and a selection of the games of the day are also presented on Pstbet’s homepage. Normally, you only need two or three clicks to transfer the odds to the betting slip, which then opens on the right edge of the screen.
Visually, the online provider relies on a gray-black background with white-green text and menu navigation. The look is certainly not an outstanding highlight, but contributes significantly to the simple, direct clarity. In the Pstbet review, the layout is more of a subjective quality indicator anyway. We don’t want to forget that Pstbet still has a separate results section on the website.
The good marks for usability can be transferred 1: 1 to the Pstbet sports betting app. Handling via smartphone is also solved intuitively. Of course, customers have access to the entire betting range on the go, without any restrictions. When logged in, all relevant administrative functions can be used in the player lounge, from the security settings to the till menu. Deposits and withdrawals can be processed in no time.
Pstbet’s customer service is available in writing. Inquiries can be made by email, fax or using the contact form. In our tests, the employees showed themselves to be competent and quick. All emails were answered individually and in detail within a few hours. With ready-made standard formulations, no customer has to make do with the betting provider. The employees of the online bookmaker can be reached between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. every day. It is correct, and this should not be concealed in the Pstbet test, that the contact paths can of course still be expanded. A live chat and perhaps a telephone hotline would be desirable.
There is also good grades for the help section on the website. Here, users will find all relevant information on the possible uses, betting options and internal processes at the bookmaker clearly categorized. You can switch between the following categories:
- Our types of bets
- Initial payment
- frequently asked Questions
- Pstbet support
Anyone who reads something into this area based on our Pstbet experience will rarely need the help of the service staff.
