Top 10 Questions To Ask Before Signing Up To SetantaBet

In this review, we’ll be taking a look at SetantaBet. This is an all in one betting site and we’ll be seeing whether it’s worth your time and money, as well as how it stacks up to the competition. In order to do this fairly and objectively, there’s a few things we do to ensure our reviews are as good as they can possible be.

First off, we won’t be looking at just one side of the story. For each site element we examine, we’ll be looking at both the good and the bad. This means that you know you’re not only getting part of the picture and you can make an informed decision as to which betting sites you choose to use. We even put the good and the bad into separate sections so it’s easier than ever to pit to pros against the cons.

Speaking of positives and negatives, we’re also aware that not everything we look at can be assessed objectively. Certainly something like the amount of content on a site can, but what about the sites design and creative choices? That’s something that comes down to personal preference. Because we’re all about fairness, instead of presenting our subjective opinion as fact, we’ll instead suggest what kind of responses – both good and bad – users are likely to have. That way, you can see what best lines up with your way of thinking and use it as a reference in order to figure out where’s best for you to bet your money.

With introductions out of the way, let’s get down to the meat of the matter and take a look at SetantaBet

  1. What do we mean by all in one site?

By all in one site, we simply mean that SetantaBet has, at a minimum, both a casino and a sportsbook. These are probably the most common and popular type of betting site, with big names like BetFred, Coral, Ladbrokes and more being direct rivals. So, it;s certainly no easy competition.

There are also tons of lesser known examples, such as JustBet, Favbet or Cherry Casino and Sportsbook. Lots of lesser known all in ones (and other forms of betting site for that matter) are excellent. So essentially what we’re saying is, just because a site – in this case SetantaBet – may have escaped your notice, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is not worth your while.

Other than giving you a basic explanation of what to expect, there is another purpose for our categorisation. While casino exclusives, like Wink Slots, Party Casino or Royal Panda Casino, are also betting sites, they have fundamentally different expectations from their user. That means that if we were to compare say, William Hill to BGO, it wouldn’t be fair to criticise the latter for a lack of tennis options. That’s because that’s not what the site is sold as.

So in terms of things like content, we compare betting sites directly to avoid criticising one unfairly. Having said that though, other site elements, like design and customer service, have the same expectations from users. Therefore, it would be fair to compare different types of sites in those instances. It’s just important to keep in mind – as we will when conducting this review – that expectations must be taken into account during comparison.

On the other hand

The most obvious negative to an all in one betting site is that having fingers in so many pies can often lead smaller sites being overstretched. Not everyone can manage the levels of all round excellence as the likes of Virgin Casino and Mr Green Sportsbook and Casino. It’s a tough industry to stand out in. 

  1. So what content is available on SetantaBet?

Setantabet betting highlights

Not all betting sites are created equal however, so let’s take a more specific look at what is available on the sportsbook side of things. The following sports are available on SetantaBet at the time of writing:

  • Football
  • Horse Racing
  • Darts
  • Tennis
  • American Football
  • Aussie Rules
  • Badminton
  • Bandy
  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Boxing
  • Cricket
  • Cycling
  • E-Sports
  • Floorball
  • Football
  • Futsal
  • Handball
  • Ice Hocket
  • MMA
  • Motor Racing
  • Netball
  • Rugby League
  • Rugby Union
  • Snooker and Pool
  • Specials
  • Speedway
  • Surfing
  • Table Tennis
  • Volleyball
  • Winter Olympics
  • Winter Sports
  • Gaelic Football
  • Gaelic Hurling

That’s a very, very impressive selection and one which we think will satisfy the vast majority of potential customers. There’s all the usual suspects you would expect, alongside plenty of lesser known examples.

Turning to the casino side of the site, things are split between slots, table games, jackpots and video poker. The full list of what’s available can be found on the site.

On the other hand

Unfortunately, the casino offering, although not terrible, simply isn’t up to the standards set by its excellent sportsbook’s variety. It’s not the worst we’ve seen but it certainly isn’t the best either.

There’s no live casino that we could find. Confusingly, there’s reports that do make reference to a live casino. So we’re not sure if this is something they’ve had in the past or had to take down. (Of course, this could simply be a misunderstanding and there never was a live casino in the first place.) Either way, it is something which would add a lot of value to the website and is sorely missed.

It’s also weak in terms of its poker selection, which is far from competing with PokerStars or Full Tilt Poker. And as far as we can see, there’s no bingo options available either, meaning the likes of Foxy Bingo can rest easy.

  1. Is the SetantaBet site well designed?

Setantabet site design

While in terms of aesthetics and creative decisions, this is a matter of preference, we can say with certainty that in terms of technical aspects, we found no issues during our use of the site.

Moving onto the more subjective side of things, one thing we think many will like about Setantabet is its simplicity and ease of use. We also think many will like its preference for big bold uses of links and fonts, for example, which go some way to help it differentiate itself from the crowd without betraying the simplicity so many like.

Some people simply don’t like the use of themes, characters or in your face graphics and for them, this will be right up their street. Other examples of sites that are considered excellent design wise and also don’t go in for that kind of thing include the terrific Betfair, Betway and William Hill.

Other people however mat think that SetantaBet simply doesn’t stand out and will much prefer bolder design choices seen in sites like Manhattan Slots, Rizk Casino and All British Casino for example. Even for those who do like their sites to be kept more conservative design wise, they may find some gripes with SetanataBet. In places, it feels a touch out of date and in need of a fresh coat of paint.

There’s nothing truly awful here, but a sense that it’s a little rough around the edges at time and could use a neaten up.

  1. Are there any promotions available at SentantaBet?

Although not quite the same as site design, it can be argued that the importance of promotions is itself subjective. For some players, they are a huge part of their decision making. For others, they are just a bit of fun and for another group, they may even be a pointless distraction. A lot of it just depends on how often/how you use betting sites.

On the other hand

SetantaBet best odds guaranteed

Hopefully, you are in the camp of the latter because SentantaBet’s offering isn’t much to write home about. You could even argue that it’s not really a promotion at all.

Essentially, they offer a Best Odds Guaranteed “promotion” and it pretty much does exactly what it says on the tin. Obviously, this is a pretty bad result, as even if you’re someone for whom promotions don’t hold much weight, their existence is never a hindrance and so a good selection is always a welcome thing. A disappointing result for SetantaBet here.

  1. What’s the critical response to SetantaBet like?

SetantaBet advert

From our research, we’ve found that the majority of reviews for SentantaBet are very positive, with a few mediocre selections and the odd bad review. Nonetheless, from what we’ve seen, we’d say that the scales are very much tipped in a positive direction.

On the other hand

Obviously, a full house of five star reviews is preferable, but SetantaBet has still come off pretty well here.

  1. What customer service options are available at SentantaBet?

SentantaBet live chat

In addition to a site information/help section and a phone number for complaints, there’s also an email response service and that all important live chat function. According to their customer service team, the latter is available  24/7.

While you could say that other sites do have more options – let’s be honest – for most people, a round the clock live chat function is the only one that really matters.

On the other hand

The fact that it’s 24/7 is not made clear: hence why we had to ask. This however is a very slight site design flaw rather than a serious issue.

  1. What banking options are available?

SetantaBet payment methods

The following banking options are available at the time of writing, according to their help section:

  • Skrill
  • Neteller
  • Mastercard/Visa

Minimum deposit amounts are £20 or equivalent for Skrill and Neteller, and £5 for Matercard/Visa. £5000 is the maximum for all payment methids.

On the other hand

Just in terms of simplicity, a table with all the information would have been preferred. But once again, this is a very, very minor criticism.

  1. Are SetantaBet licensed?

UK gambling commission

They most certainly are. SetantaBet is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission.

  1. How do I sign up to SetantaBet?

SetantaBet registration

If Sentantabet seems like it might be the betting site for you, then you can sign up through the red ‘Join now’ button found at the right hand corner of your screen. From here, you’ll have to fill in an application form with everything you’d expect. This includes your password, email, name, address,  etc.

Make sure – as this is a site which deals with real money – that you utilise a safe password and avoid choosing one that you use on any other site.

Also keep in mind that, for some sites, there are restrictions on account creation. This is often the case with email addresses but also extends to the same ip and home address. Ensure no one in the same household as you already has a player account with SetantaBet in order to avoid encountering future issues. 

On the other hand

There’s no option to set a betting limit here. This is often a welcome addition, as it encourages responsible gambling.

  1. So what’s our verdict on SetantaBet?

While we don’t quite share the enthusiasm of some of the critical reviews we’ve seen for SentantaBet, there certainly are positives to the site. Put simply, this is a site for gamblers who want things to be kept simple, for those who view extra bells and whistles as mere distractions. It also helps if your main interest is sports betting, with a little casino gaming on the side and you’re not too fussed about promotions.

We’re not going to pretend these things are virtues when they’re in fact flaws, and we hope SetantaBet improves as it goes into the future. However, it does do a lot of the fundamentals right and that shouldn’t be discounted. Whether this site is worth your time really depends on what you’re looking for from a betting site. This might be exactly it, or it might be lacking in some areas.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed that SetantaBet can offer more so it attracts more people, without losing the simplicity that will, for many, be its charm.
