What we recommend instead
BETAT Casino Verdict
Betat Casino offers you plenty to get excited about, including a big welcome bonus, lightning-fast cash-outs, 24/7 support, and a plethora of slots and casino games. However, we can’t help but feel that the absence of a VIP/loyalty scheme lets the site down.
Design & Usability
One design aspect of Betat that we love is the way the wallpaper frequently changes to show off the latest game additions. For example, last time we visited the site, we were met with blue skies and the cast of NetEnt’s new Egyptian Heroes slot, and previously, the background has featured Aloha Cluster Pays, Wonky Wabbits, and Robin Hood Shifting Riches among others.
The central website template, however, is constant. So, you don’t need to worry about having to regain your bearings on every visit. There’s always a scrolling ad banner at the top which tells you about the welcome offer, the Game of the Week, and the latest promotions and competitions. Along the top of the site, you’ll find the main menu system which lets you view four main pages: Games, Promotions, Banking and Security, and Why Us? The majority of the homepage consists of the games lobby which you can search by Hot & Cold slots, Recommended, Game Type, or Provider.
To make things as easy as possible for both new and returning players, there are easy-to-spot login and sign-up areas, and a sticky tab that automatically launches the live chat service.
Software & Gameplay
Betat uses NetEnt software and, therefore, guarantees first-class gameplay. There’s no need to download any casino software to get started, and the games usually load within seconds. Although there aren’t any exclusive games available, there are still hundreds of options to choose from.
Safety & Security
Betat Casino is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta.
GeoTrust provides the site’s SSL certificate which encrypts all sensitive data prior to transmission, and a random number generator is used to provide random and fair game results.
Payments & Withdrawals
You can use any of the following payment methods: Visa, MasterCard, Skrill, Neteller, Skrill 1 Tap, Paysafecard, EcoCard, Zimpler, WebMoney, or Bank Transfer. It’s disappointing to see that both Paypal and Entropay are currently missing from this list.
Betat doesn’t charge deposit or withdrawal fees, and you can deposit between £20 and £2,300 per transaction, and withdraw £10 to £100,000. Your first withdrawal requires ID verification, but after this is in place, all of your future withdrawal requests will be processed in under four hours.
The live chat service operates 24/7, and you can also get in touch with the team via email and Twitter. Currently, there doesn’t appear to be any telephone support available. There’s also an online complaints form that allows any issue you wish to escalate to be sent directly to the entire senior management team as a high priority, and you should receive a response within 24 business hours.
Bonuses & Promotions
Although you have to hand over a minimum of £20 to qualify, the Betat Casino welcome offer can give you a generous 100% welcome bonus of up to £500, plus fifty free spins for you to use on the Game of the Week or Starburst. If you choose to accept the bonus, you’ll need to wager it through at least thirty times within seven days. Any winnings gained as a result of your free spins are converted to bonus funds with a wagering requirement of 10x.
Betat is keen to point out that its bonuses do not tie in your real funds; therefore, all wins gained from your own cash are directly credited to your real cash balance and can be withdrawn whenever you like without the need to complete any play-through requirements.
You can also opt-in to other monthly offers via the Promotions page, which is regularly updated. As an example, a recent offer allowed players to claim 25% cashback on any losses incurred playing the Throne of Egypt and Egyptian Heroes slots.
One of the best promotions at the site has to be Games Achievements. It lets you earn cash rewards by completing achievements through The Chamber of Spins in Immortal Romance and The Great Hall of Spins in Thunderstruck II. As far as we’re aware, no other online casino offers this kind of reward.
A banner advertising “Mobile Gaming” lets you know that you can play at Betat on mobile devices. It contains a QR code that takes you directly to the mobile-optimised website, where you’ll find plenty of gaming choices on offer. Like many of its competitors, Betat chooses to use an HMTL5 website that allows for both desktop and mobile play rather than a dedicated mobile app, which is fine, but we’d like to see this explained via a dedicated mobile page.
Variety & Originality
Microgaming, Leander, NetEnt, and NextGen are the four brands whose games appear in Betat’s lobby. There’s a sensational selection of online slots that ranges from Jungle Spirit, Beach, and Piggy Riches to Hellboy, Gold Factory, and Game of Thrones. Sadly, there are no progressive jackpot slots on offer.
The table games cover poker (e.g. Texas Hold’em, Caribbean Stud, Red Dog, and Oasis), blackjack (including Double Exposure, Pontoon, and High Limit), baccarat, craps, and roulette (e.g. French and American). Plus, there are six NetEnt-powered live casino tables where you can play Live Auto French Roulette, Live Roulette, Live French Roulette, Live Automatic Roulette, Live Blackjack, and Live Common Draw Blackjack.
The video poker options are quite limited as there are only five games to choose from.
In summary, the variety is good, but it could be better if more video poker games, live dealer games, and progressive jackpot slots were added.
As there are no exclusive games available, we’re unable to give a top score to Betat for originality, although it’s worth noting that it chooses which software developers to use, and doesn’t just rely on NetEnt for its games.
Loyalty & Rewards
Surprisingly, Betat does not appear to operate any form of VIP or loyalty scheme, which we feel should be addressed as a high priority.
