GTBets is another sportsbook that caters to a North American audience and is quite honestly one of the preferred ones for US bettors. Though they do cater to international bettors too, it is very clear that GTBets is a bookmaker that primarily serves American bettors.
Their site layout is unique in that it is orange and blue and really sticks out as opposed to other bookmakers’ themes that are very easy on the eye. Quite frankly, the orange and blue layout is a bit much as it is very in your face. With that said, however, the site itself is extremely easy to use and lends itself to functionality.
The sportsbook homepage lists the top upcoming events directly in the middle as to draw bettors in to the most attractive lines. On the left, GTBets has listed the sports betting categories that it offers. In all honesty, GTBets does not have as many lines as some of their competitors, but when it comes to individual propositions they are not lacking at all. For me, that is really the saving grace for GTBets.
GTBets is a very simplistic sportsbook, and for that reason, it should come as no surprise that they really do not boast all that many special features. Though they do offer a live betting option, it is limited with regard to overall lines and general selection. On any given day there will be live events for you to bet on, but how many of them exist is really a wildcard. For example, on the day this piece was composed, the only two live betting options were for a few obscure soccer matches and a selection of NBA games. This is, in some ways, a flaw because other competing bookmakers offer a much wider selection of live sporting events.
GTBets mobile application is the one aspect of this bookmaker that I absolutely love. The app, like most sports betting apps, exists as a web-based application and does not need to be physically downloaded to your phone. When you log on to the GTBets homepage, you will find the exact same site, only it is simplified to make it easier to use on your phone. The simplistic, straightforward nature of the mobile application is irresistible, even for those bettors who may not be accustomed to placing wagers on their phones.
Bonuses and promotions are a big part of GTBets overall offering. While they, like most every bookmaker, offer a sign-up bonus for first-time depositors, they take things a step further by offering a number of recurring bonuses. For instance, you can subscribe to a bonus that sees additional funds credited to your bankroll each and every time you deposit. It is little things like this that keep players coming back time and time again; something GTBets has no problem doing.
Apart from deposit bonuses, GTBets also boasts a number of recurring bonuses that allow you to boost the bottom line of a given wager without having to risk any more of your own money. As is always the case, each and every bonus has wagering requirements tied to them, so it is important that you brush up on the terms of the bonus before ever committing to it.
GTBets is highly touted due to the sheer number of deposit options available to customers. Though you are, of course, allowed to deposit via credit and debit cards, you are also able to use cash transfer and e-wallets as well. The number of options allows GTBets to cater to the needs of a wide variety of bettors. Other sites, for example, will only offer one deposit option, something that highly limits their overall appeal to new, prospective bettors.
With regard to cash outs, you are able to receive winnings via a check, bank transfer, or a number of different cash transfer options. As is often the case, each of these options carries their own terms and conditions, so be sure to brush up on these before ever trying to execute a payout.
Customer service is something that GTBets does extremely well. Straight from the homepage, you are able to open up a customer service tab that presents you with all of the ways by which you can contact customer service representatives. Something I really liked is that there exists a live chat option. With this, you no longer have to pick up the phone and wait on hold for any extended period of time. Instead, you can load the live chat box and be connected with a customer service agent in a matter of seconds.
Of course, you are still offered the option of calling in as customer service agents are available at all hours of the day.
