Review of the Sports Betting Arm of Party Gaming
Party Gaming have been a giant of the online gambling industry for many years, the original poker site led the way at the forefront of the online poker revolution and still sits as one of the main players in the marketplace today. Over the years the company has expanded into casinos, bingo and backgammon and of course a sportsbook. Originally called Party Bets, you‘ll now find the sports betting arm of Party Poker at sports.partypoker.com.
Sports Betting at Party Bets
You’ll find an amazing amount of betting markets available at the site. At the time of writing this review there were upwards of 30,000 bets available, so you will be a little spoilt for choice. When you first enter the site you’ll notice immediately that the focus of the site is on soccer, with many markets already loaded on the home page, where you’ll be able to load your betting slip with one simple click. Down the left hand side of the site there’s a menu which lists all of the popular sports available, which includes tennis, baseball, American Football, golf and many others. Not so popular sports can be accessed by clicking on the ‘more sports’ button. Clicking on any of the other sports will bring up another menu listing all of the market types, although once again the most popular markets are immediately loaded – a great time saving measure.
Another handy feature of the site is that when accessing any particular market you can click on the star symbol which will make this event one of your favorites, which you’ll be able to access through the ‘favorites’ button above the sports menu.
Features at Party Bets
The site has a handy ‘livescore’ feature where you’ll be able to keep up with all the happenings at a game/match/ event. This features a wide variety of sports, and is a site that would be handy in its own right.
Another great feature is the ‘statistics’ section where you’ll be able to access a wide range of important facts and figures to aid your betting decision. Usually when betting you’ll have to look elsewhere for your research, but that is certainly not the case here.
Clicking on the ‘Live Betting’ button in the top right hand corner of the site will load the live interface. Here you’ll find the wide range of bets available and constantly updating odds alongside the live scores, so you’ll know exactly where you stand with your live bets. Some of the live events have a video symbol attached, so you’ll be able to watch the action whilst gambling on it.
Bonuses and Promotions at Party Bets
One of the most attractive features at this site is the wide range of bonuses, promotions and extras at the site. Although there are no direct deposit bonuses when you sign up (although through a quick search engine check you’ll be able to find many bonus codes through third party companies) this is a site that gives many offers to players directly through the internal mail system, offers that are tailored to individual customers.
Every time you place a bet at the site you’ll earn loyalty points which you’ll be able to spend at the ‘points store’. This is not exclusive just to the sports book, so if you were to make use of the poker site, the casino or any other part of the site you’d also earn points. Earn enough points and you’ll be invited to become a member of the Palladium Lounge, where you’ll be entitled to exclusive promotions, offline events and parties and a dedicated customer care team.
Deposits and Withdrawals at Party Bets
There are a wide variety of deposit options at this site. The most popular method is by using a debit card, other deposit options including Skrill, Neteller, PayPal, UKash and many others. Withdrawals will generally be made back to the same method you used to deposit.
Party Poker Bets makes use of a one-wallet system, where you’ll be able to use your funds at each of the various parts of the site. As an example, if you win money at the sports book, you can easily use these funds to place a soccer bet, and if winning again, take a spin at the roulette wheel at the casino.
Party Bets – In Summary
When it comes to the gambling industry, there are no companies with as much experience at offering multiple gambling platforms as Party Poker, the word ‘experts’ probably not doing them justice. Party Bets do a great job of offering tailored bonuses to each customer and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by both how generous these offers are and by the amount of bonuses you’ll find. The range of betting is second to none at this site, the live betting only adding to the overall experience.
