Beteast is one of the newest brands in the betting industry. Founded in 2016, this Asian company soon spread to Europe. As a matter of fact, it has different websites and licenses addressing different markets under the same name. The website subject to this review is the one which contains “EU” at its address. Beteast is primarily a sports betting site and you should remember this when making an assessment. In other words, despite Bitcoin support and the online casino section, the type of service Beteast focuses on is online betting and primarily appeals to bettors.
Citizens of the US, Hong Kong, Philippines, and Spain cannot play at Beteast. It is not possible to sign up anonymously, you are asked to provide your credentials during the registration. Although UK citizens can become members, it will be more appropriate for them to use the other version of the website (beteast.co.uk), which is exclusive to them.
User Experience and Design
The Beteast website, by default, opens with the betting interface. There are no ads or banners on the page that can dissipate your attention. So if you are used to seeing bonus promotions and lists of games, you will not find them at Beteast. The design is practical and convenient. On the left side, there are sports branches, the part that gives detailed information for the selected match and the bet rates are in the middle, and the betting slip is on the right. The page loading speeds are extremely satisfactory and even detailed tables are loaded in a few seconds. Beteast offers its members the following services:
- In Play (Live Betting)
- Sports Betting
- Live Casino
- Slot Machines
You can access the casino and slot pages by using the links at the top. Beteast also has a separate mobile version and is compatible with all mobile operating systems. However, there is no separate mobile app. Although the design is useful and practical, we can say it is a bit "dark". No color other than dark blue and black is used. This creates a slightly pessimistic look.
Bonuses & Promotions
At the time of this review, there were no bonuses and promotions offered by Beteast. Apparently, this is not a temporary situation, as our research shows that no bonus has been offered for a long time. This is a surprising choice because a new betting site needs to offer promotions to grow quickly. Apparently, however, Beteast does not feel this need. The only special offer we could find was a feature called "Mystery Jackpot". You can win a prize that is accumulated in a progressive jackpot pool which is always active, in case you play sports bets. There is nothing you need to do to participate in the draw, it is enough to play a bet. Whoever wins is completely random. If we quote the statement on the Beteast website; “no one can know when the Mystery Jackpot will strike!”
Games on Offer
The casino games content of Beteast is very poor. For classic casino games; roulette, keno, blackjack, and baccarat are available but you can only play against live dealers. A total of 4 live casino games are available and for example, poker is not among the games you can play. In the slots category, only 36 slot machines are offered. All of them are provided by Endorphina. So do not expect too much in terms of variety: Literally, “bare minimum” is being offered. You are allowed to try the games for free, but no games have provably fair feature. We recommend that you take a look at these slot machines: Blast Boom Bang, Mongol Treasures, Temple Cats, Ice Pirates, and More Fresh Fruits.
As mentioned above, Beteast is essentially a betting site. You can bet for a total of 14 different sports. Although mostly European leagues are offered, it is also possible to find some exotic leagues. Almost every day, you can bet for 1,000 different matches. In the eSports category, the following games are available: CS: GO, DOTA 2, League of Legends, Hearthstone, and Starcraft. The overall betting margin is unfortunately not obvious, but we can say that it is generally above the sector average. We should also note that the “Bet Cashout” feature is available.
Beteast is a betting site with multiple licenses. The EU version is licensed by Curacao and the UK version by United Kingdom Gambling Commission. SSL encryption is available on every page of the website. In other words, there are no problems with security.
Available payment options are different for each version of Beteast website. In the EU version, which is the subject of this review, you can use one of the following options for withdrawals: Sofort, credit cards, Bitcoin, Qiwi, Moneta.ru, inpay, Skrill, and Paysafe Card. No information is available on the minimum and maximum withdrawal limits. It takes between 1 and 3 days to withdraw money using methods other than Bitcoin. BTC transfers happen momentarily. Identity verification is needed for withdrawal amounts higher than 2.300 EUR.
You can also use withdrawal options for deposit transactions. Minimum deposit is 5 EUR. No information is available on the maximum limit. However, you do not have to pay a commission for any deposit method.
It's surprising that no live chat support is available. While the UK version has this feature, the EU version only offers email and telephone support. Their information is as follows:
Unfortunately, we have no information about which hours the phone support is available.
Beteast will be an appropriate choice as a betting site: It accepts players from almost every country in the world and offers over the average odds. Moreover, there is no problem in terms of security. However, casino games content is too weak to satisfy even the most casual players. We recommend Beteast for your sports and eSports betting needs, but you should look for another address to play casino games.
