1xBet is an online sportsbook with over 10 years of history, offering a full range of online betting services as well as lotteries, toto, and casino sections. According to the currently available information, the bookmaker has over 400,000 registered users who can place their bets on more than 30 different disciplines including the US-favorite sports – American football, basketball, baseball, and ice hockey.
Looking at the list of available sports, it is hard to imagine that there is not at least one offer suitable for the taste of each punter. Attention is paid both to the all-time favorite soccer and also niche sports like darts, snooker, and chess. Esports fans have quite a diverse choice of events as is the case with horse racing lovers.
The payment methods provided by 1xBet are some of the most numerous we have seen on the sports betting scene. The relevant information is available without the need to be registered first, which in our opinion is a positive approach in view of the convenience of bettors.
Novices and loyal members of 1xBet can benefit from diverse promotions varying between deposit bonuses, cashback promotions, special offers, and promo codes.

Betting Features at 1xBet
The 1xBet website has a pleasantly looking layout that does not strain the eye and gives a huge amount of information with just one glance. What is more, the sportsbook is one of the simplest to navigate with all betting markets being readily accessible. Each sports discipline has a drop-down menu that lists different information about leagues and betting markets.
The settings tab provides many options including changing the odds display format, light/dark background, font size, way of arranging the current matches, etc. Bettors can choose from American, decimal, fractional, Hong Kong, Indonesian, and Malaysian odds formats. The online bookie can be explored in more than 60 languages that can be changed from a separate tab in the top right corner of the page.
The left column of the sports betting site comprises quick links to the most popular championships you can bet on as well as the top matches. From the same location punters have direct access to all the available sports as for each of them the number of betting markets can be seen. When you select an event, you have direct access not only to the possible bets you can make but also to various settings, including how many columns the markets are to be displayed by.
Probably one of the reasons for the relentless interest of punters in the 1xBet online sportsbook is its fantastic live stream section which enables them to watch many events in real-time. To access this feature, there is no need to pay any subscriptions or to have placed a bet in the previous 24 hours for example. The only requirement is for the bettor to have a verified account. There is information about the teams or countries playing, the current score, and the number of minutes which has elapsed.

The Sportsbook of 1xBet
Unlike many other sportsbooks that focus mainly on one sports category and provide limited options in the other disciplines, 1xBet strives to offer full coverage of as many disciplines as possible. A proof of this is table tennis for example, which currently has over 300 events punters can bet on.
Other sports where there is a diverse choice of betting options are American football, horse racing, greyhounds, eSports, volleyball, and some more. 1xBet is not the only online bookie that enables politics betting, but it is certainly one of the ones offering the biggest number of events in this field – currently around 90.
The sportsbook features a live section with in-play markets covering hundreds of events every day. This section lists the names of all sports in which there are ongoing events, as well as statistics, odds, and the number of available markets for each match. A great part of the available events fall within the eSports category and that is why they are arranged in a separate zone.
The bet builder, a feature preferred by many punters around the world, is available on 1xBet. Steps are simple – select a market, select the outcome, send the details to your bet slip, and place a bet. Settings like Asian or Italian view, One-Click Bet, and Notifications also enhance the punters’ betting experience.
The number of available soccer betting markets exceeds all others on 1xBet. At the time of writing this review, bettors have more than 2,300 options distributed between many national leagues (the USA, the UK, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Japan, Brazil, etc.) as well as the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Europa League, the FIFA World Cup, and Copa Libertadores.
Soccer fans diversify their betting via the Accumulator of The Day feature which provides several ready-made combinations of matches every day, each with different overall odds.
There is also a great variety in terms of bet types. The sportsbook provides the usual option like Correct Score, Over/Under Total, and Handicaps, but this is definitely not everything. Bettors can make their propositions on alternative options like Digit in The Score, Penalty Awarded, Period of First Goal, Result in Minute, Team Total in Minute, and some more.
Punters can place certain predictions on each player listed for the relevant match. This is done through a little tab in the top right corner where you can try to guess if Jack Grealish for example will score a hat-trick, the first or the last goal in the match, or if he will score at all.
Ice hockey is one of the most popular sports in North America, a fact the 1xBet has taken into account and therefore provides its registered users with plenty of betting markets. The category has great coverage and features events from the NHL, AHL, EHL, NCAA, as well as the national leagues of Russia, Austria, Belarus, Denmark, Germany, the Czech Republic, and a few more tournaments.
As with soccer, the choice of bet types here is very diverse. Bettors can choose from the standard 1×2, Handicaps, Double Chance, and Even/Odd but they can also challenge themselves with interesting options like To Score An Empty Net Goal, Race to 5 Goals, Team Not To Lose Any Period, Win Or Draw in Minute, etc.
Ice hockey is one of the disciplines that appear in the live streaming section of the sportsbook, so look for the relevant icon and press it to see how the match goes.
We continue with another sport, loved by millions of people around the world – basketball. Currently, 1xBet features more than 220 events from many national leagues and championships as well as regional tournaments. The undisputed favorite is of course the NBA and some of the most interesting bet types are How Many Quarters Will Team Win, Exact Points Difference, Digit in The Score, and Total Quarters with The Same Number of Points. Bettors can also try to guess the number of assists, rebounds, turnovers, blocks, or steals.
If you click on the name of one of the two teams in a match, a new window will open with a list of the team’s last five matches, each of them accompanied by detailed statistics information.
The national leagues of countries other than the United States are not ignored, as for France, Sweden, and Argentina there are matches available from 3 different competition levels. Just part of the other local basketball championships covered by 1xBet are the leagues of Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine, Panama, Mexico, Italy, and Latvia.
Basketball fans can also bet on some enhanced special accumulators that are different every day. A possible bet of this type is Donovan Mitchel and LeBron James both to score over 28 points.
It is not surprising that tennis appears in the portfolio of every online sportsbook, no matter if it is oriented towards the US, European or Australian market, as each of these regions has its representative in the Top 10 of the best tennis players of all time. A tiny part of the names of these great athletes is Pete Sampras, Goran Ivanisevic, Steffi Graf, Andre Agassi, Martina Hingis, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer.
The 1xBet sportsbook features a lot of ATP and WTA tournaments as well as the ITF and Challenger series. If you are an advanced bettor in the field of tennis, you can try to predict if one of the players will save a match point and win the match or if the match will be won by an ace.
The variety of bet types is really impressive as the 1×2, Total, Correct Score, Even/Odd, and Handicaps apply to all sets separately, or for the whole match. Punters can also bet on double faults, aces, breaks, and breakpoints.
Punters can view the picture of each player together with a list of his last five matches and complete statistics for any event.
Given the regional nature of American football, there are not many different leagues that can fall into the range of an online sportsbook. This does not prevent the popularity of the sport to be huge and 1xBet takes this into account. The online bookie features events from the NFL, NCAA, and CFL.
Bets can be placed on each quarter or half of the game, there are also accumulator outcomes and players’ stats. Just a small part of the possible bet types are Total Touchdowns, Total Scored Field Goals, Handicap 2 + Total, Type of Score, Individual 3Way Total, and Safety.
The NFL category has an Enhanced Specials subsection featuring special bets on matches on a certain day most often starting at 17:00h local time. These may include the first touchdown scorer of all matches on that day, the highest-scoring game or team, the most passing, receiving, or rushing yards, etc.
|Sports and Markets Available Summary|
|Soccer||1×2, Double Chance, Handicap, Over/Under Total, Both Teams To Score, Even/Odd|

No matter if you prefer betting on your favorite sport from the convenience of your home or while on the go, 1xBet has taken care to provide you with everything you could possibly need. The online sportsbook is accessible through its website, as an in-browser app and there are also dedicated mobile applications for Android and iOS devices.
This usually exhausts the possibilities offered by online sportsbooks in terms of mobile compatibility. However, this is not the case with 1xBet. It provides a set of Windows apps targeted at different users. The 1xWIN app can be installed by newly registered and existing clients of the online bookie and is intended for betting on sports, live, toto, 1xZone, and TV games. 1xBrowser app and 1xBrowser app for Linux have also been developed that promise guaranteed access to the sportsbook. There are four possibilities for the Linux application – RPM X64, RPM X86, DEB X64, and DEB X86.
As for the mobile version of the site, there are no restrictions related to the browser used. There are no differences in speed and overall betting experience when punters use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Microsoft Edge, or Safari. Basically, using the in-browser app is the same as betting via the desktop version of the website since there are no visual or functional differences.
We carefully looked at the 1xBet mobile app using different devices and the only difference with the desktop version we found in terms of functionality is the lack of the small statistics tab located within the menu in the top left corner of the page. This data is available in its entirety within the useful links section at the bottom of the screen, so that mobile users are not deprived of any relevant information.
Those who use any of the 1xBet mobile apps have easy access to all payment options including bank cards, eWallets, payment systems, bank transfers, and almost 40 cryptocurrencies. Furthermore, they can request a withdrawal or check their bet and transaction history or the currently available bonuses and gifts with just one tap.

Bonuses and Promotional Offers
1xBet offers a range of promotional offers that are intended for both newly registered punters and loyal users of the sportsbook. Bettors can take advantage of several permanent deposit bonuses, increase their possible winnings through accumulator bet promotions, as well as a number of other permanent and one-time offers.
100% First Deposit Bonus Up To $100
All newly registered punters on 1xBet are entitled to a welcome bonus of up to $100. Steps are simple – they have to register an account, verify all required data and make their first deposit of an amount between $1 and $100. If these requirements are met, the 100% bonus of up to $100 will be automatically credited to the punter’s account.
This first deposit comes with some terms and conditions which we find to be quite reasonable and easy to fulfill. Punters will not get any bonus amount if they have not preliminary agreed to receive promotional offers (through the settings or deposit pages).
The bonus comes with a 5x wagering requirement and can be used for accumulator bets containing at least 3 selections, each with minimum odds of 1.4. The validity period of the promotional offer is 30 days and all events within the accumulator bet must start before the expiration of the bonus. Bettors can withdraw funds after the rollover requirement has been fully completed.
The newly registered punters are allowed to use only one bonus and also cannot combine it with any other 1xBet promotional offer.
As an additional clause, it is stated that no withdrawals are allowed if the account balance is less than the bonus amount and if the punter has any unsettled bets. It is possible to cash out before the conditions of the promotional offer are fulfilled if the remaining account balance is at least twice the bonus amount (the bonus amount and winnings cannot be withdrawn).
250% Hyper Bonus
This promotional offer allows the registered punters to receive a bonus of up to 250% in case they make a successful accumulator bet, including at least 4 selections, each with minimum odds of 1.2. The bonus percentage depends on the number of selections. A successful bet of 4 selections would result in a 5% bonus, while the maximum allowed 25 selections correspond to 250%.
The bonus comes with no wagering requirements and will be credited to the punter’s account no later than 24 hours after the successful settlement of the bet. Currently, the maximum possible bonus amount is $44,453.
There are several restrictive conditions for using this offer. All events within the accumulator bet must happen within 30 days after the bet is placed. Refunded or resold bets, as well as bets using promo codes or bonus funds, are not eligible for this offer. The Hyper bonus is not applicable to bonus events, bets on water polo, Lotteries, Bet Constructor, TVBet, keirin, air hockey, the weather, or eSports events. As with absolutely all other promotional offers, this bonus cannot be used if the respective account is funded by cryptocurrencies.
Bettors are not allowed to combine this bonus with other promotional offers and must be prepared to provide additional documents to verify their identity.
Registered punters of 1xBet can participate in a lucky numbers raffle every day and receive 500 promo points. The procedure is quite simple. Punters must take a ticket from the offers page and confirm their participation by placing a bet on any sport with a minimum amount of $2 and odds of at least 1.8.
The raffle for promo points is drawn every day at 20:00 +3 UTC. If a punter finds his number in the list of 100 daily winners, he will receive the 500 promo points within 24 hours after the end of the raffle. Bettors must keep in mind that this is not an automatic promotion, they have to request participation by getting a ticket, otherwise, they will not be included in the daily raffle.
Accumulator of The Day
The sportsbook features more than 1,000 sports events every day and combines the most attractive ones in several accumulators of the day. If punters choose one of these accumulator bets and it wins, they will enjoy a 10% increase of the odds.
Bets are not eligible for this offer if they originate from any bonus funds or accounts topped up via cryptocurrencies. Punters are not allowed to use an advancebet for this promotion.

|Accumulator of The Day|
1xBet is one of the sportsbooks with the most understandable and conveniently structured information regarding the available payment methods. What is more, the information is accessible to all users without the need to be already registered, which gives them the chance to get acquainted with the options in advance and to assess whether they are appropriate for them.
We were impressed that 1xBet provides a really diverse selection of deposit methods, all of them being instant and without any service fees. For each option, the minimum amount allowed is indicated in four of the many accepted currencies. Of course, these amounts can vary depending on the country of residence.
The first option punters have is to make deposits via a bank card and the supported brands are Visa and Mastercard. If they prefer using eWallets, bettors can choose from Skrill, Perfect Money, Jeton Wallet, and Sticpay. All these payment methods have a minimum required amount as low as $1 or equivalent in another accepted currency. The same is the minimum requirement for Neteller, ecoPayz, bank transfers, and Interac Online (available to Canadian users only).
If there are different conditions in your country regarding the minimum amounts, they will be the applicable ones.
Punters who prefer making payments via a cryptocurrency will be satisfied as the online sportsbook accepts almost 40 different options. Just a few of them are BTC, DASH, DOGE, ETC, LTC, QTUM, USDC, etc.
The long list of available deposit methods ends with the electronic voucher flexepin where the minimum allowed sum is $10.
Contrary to expectations, the number of supported withdrawal methods does not differ significantly from the deposit ones. WebMoney, AstroPay, and MuchBetter appear as additional options. The minimum withdrawal amount for all supported methods is $1.50.
One of the advantages of 1xBet is that it provides its clients with the opportunity to execute fast withdrawals. Except for Visa and Mastercard where the withdrawal time can reach up to 7 business days, all other payment methods should give you access to your winnings within no more than 15 minutes.
Punters can also make deposits and withdrawals via the 1xBet Cash option accessible through their accounts’ cashier section.
|Payment Method||Deposit Limits||Deposit Times||Withdrawal Limits||Withdrawal Times|
|Visa, Mastercard||Min $1.00||Instant||Min $1.50||Up to 7 business days|
|Skrill||Min $1.00||Instant||Min $1.50||Up to 15 minutes|
|Neteller||Min $1.00||Instant||Min $1.50||Up to 15 minutes|
|MuchBetter||N/A||N/A||Min $1.50||Up to 15 minutes|
|ecoPayz||Min $1.00||Instant||Min $1.50||Up to 15 minutes|
|Cryptocurrencies||Min $1.00||Instant||Min $1.50||Up to 15 minutes|
|1xBet Cash||Min $1.00||Instant||Min $1.50||Up to 15 minutes|
Customer Support and Security
Even if there are minor technical or other issues, if an online sportsbook has competent and timely customer support, it enjoys the interest of punters and in most cases, they become its loyal customers. This is exactly the case with 1xBet that has a 24/7 customer care service available via multiple channels.
If punters have an urgent issue to solve, they better use the sportsbook’s phone number (+44 127 325-69-87) which appears in all language versions of the site. We see this as an advantage, as instant direct contact allows users to best explain the difficulty they face and get help quickly.
Another option is to contact a representative of the customer care team by email. There are several email addresses that you can use depending on the type of your query. General questions must be sent to email@example.com and if there are any security issues, you can write to firstname.lastname@example.org. Punters can also use the contact form located on the website. 1xBet undertakes to respond to all written inquiries within 24 hours.
Other contact channels are innovative, cannot be found in all online sportsbooks, or are only available in certain countries. Apart from the official company’s profile on Twitter, the support representatives have their own profile where they respond to different questions asked by the punters. The younger users will probably like the fact that they can reach customer support via WhatsApp (+35795764426) and in some countries even by the Imo application.
When it comes to security, we don’t think the punters have anything to worry about. 1xBet confirms the use of SSL encryption for the protection of all personal data of its registered users and also implements very strict and in some cases time-consuming verification procedures. Furthermore, if an account is inactive for more than 3 months, the sportsbook has the right to block it.

Licenses and Restricted Countries
The 1xBet online sportsbook is regulated by the laws of Curacao under license No. 1668/JAZ. All transactions are processed by the Cyprus company Starka Ltd with a registered office in Nicosia.
At least for now, there are some restricted countries where 1xBet is illegal. Although the list is not long, it includes large markets where online sports betting is quite popular, and acquiring the relevant licenses would be a good idea in view of expanding the business and increasing the bookie’s customer base. These countries include, but are not limited to the United States, the UK, Spain, the Netherlands, and Poland. 1xBet uses technical means to restrict access from these territories.
It is important however to keep in mind that although the website or any of the applications may be accessible in a given country or the relevant language version is available, this is not an indication of its legitimate use. If an account is found to originate from a country where the use of the sportsbook is considered illegal, 1xBet has the right to close it and refund any remaining balance after deducting any winnings credited after the last deposit was made.
1xBet Reviews from Around the Web

Despite the praises that the sportsbook has received, you can also come across quite a few negative reviews of the experience offered by 1xBet.

Based on a total of 2,216 reviews, 1xBet has received an average score of 2 out of 5 stars.

The overall rating that the brand has received from Trustpilot users is Poor.
Most of the negative reviews the brand has received come from customers who had issues with their bets being processed, ultimately not being able to withdraw their winnings. There are also complaints about punters not being able to contact the customer support team via the provided channels. There were also several negative reviews left from bettors who have made deposits but they were not available at their 1xBet accounts.
