As one of the most recent additions to the online sportsbook landscape, debuting in 2016, XBet.ag has a lot to prove. Fortunately for players, the site is all-in when it comes to proving itself, resulting in generous bonus offers, a comprehensive betting menu covering mobile and In-Play wagers, and a powerful software suite provided by Betsoft. The Costa Rican company behind XBet may be new, but they know exactly what sports bettors want from a platform – and they deliver.

Bonuses, 9.4 -Bringing new players onboard is the most difficult task new brands face, but XBet provides plenty of incentive through a pair of lucrative Welcome Bonus offers. The base bonus delivers a 100 percent match, up to $300, on your first deposit. And even better, you’ll have full access to those funds immediately, with no playthrough hurdles standing in the way. High-volume players can also score a $1,000 bonus by placing $1,000 or more in cumulative wagers during their first month on the site. This free-play does require a 15x playthrough, but that should be easily achievable for those betting at the four-figure level.

Customer Service, 9.8 -In a world where software and odds have become fairly standardized, one key feature of an iGaming site that separates the best from the rest is customer service. And it appears that XBet has taken that to heart, as the site provides dedicated support through telephone and email. Along with a comprehensive page addressing Frequently Asked Questions, players never have to worry about their concerns going unanswered.

Odds Variety, 8.9 - Billing itself as a “no-nonsense online sportsbook, casino and racebook serving a community of serious players,” XBet clearly sees things from the player’s perspective. In addition to the standard lineup of standard bets (money line and point spread), and exotics (parlay, teaser, round-robin, if bet), XBet accepts action on a wide array of propositions and futures. Everything from margin of victory, first player to score, and double result (halftime and final) is in play, and that level of depth extends to every sport on the menu.

Overall Experience, 9.3 - The beauty of XBet is the site’s versatility, as it makes a concerted effort to treat sharps, or professional bettors, and recreational players equally. That’s quite a departure from how many online sportsbooks today do business, with many of XBet’s competitors choosing to block or restrict betting from players who win too often for the house’s taste. Rather than take that road, XBet proudly proclaims that “serious players are welcome to ply their trade. At the same time, casual players are given every opportunity to elevate their game, courtesy of convenient tutorials titled “Top 5 Tips for Betting on the NFL” and examples showing how to place parlays, teasers, and other exotics.

Payment, 8.7 - To get in the game, XBet users have several deposit options on tap, including debit and credit card (Visa and Mastercard), ACH, bank wire, check, person-to-person transfer, and Bitcoin. The minimum deposit amounts vary, ranging from $25 to $45 on all methods except bank wire ($2,000) – which means you don’t need to break the bank to start building a bankroll. Most of the same methods work for withdrawals as well, and once the 48-hour processing time has elapsed, cashouts are generally received in under a week.

Reputation, 9.0 - It’s only been a year since XBet went live, but in that short time the site has performed on par with its more well-established rivals. In fact, the company’s motto – Reliability, Reputation and Real Fast Payouts – makes it clear that XBet is concerned with keeping its name clean. The same can’t be said for many competitors within the online sports betting sector, so these new kids on the block should be applauded for caring about their customers.

Software,9.1 - A classic stumbling block for newly established iGaming platforms is sourcing world-class software. After all, even a well-ran sportsbook can suffer if its interface is glitchy, or the visuals aren’t clean and appealing. Thankfully, XBet didn’t skimp on the good stuff, as the site takes full advantage of Betsoft’s powerful software suite. Graphics are clear and pop off the screen, while the betting menu offers seamless navigation. And the lack of lagging as you click through the betting board ensures you’ll get the best lines as soon as they appear.

Stable License, 9.6 -XBet is fully licensed by the Antigua and Barbuda Director of Offshore Gaming, and the site utilizes both a 256-bit encryption system and secure socket layers certificates (SSL) to ensure account security and the integrity of its results

TSB Experience, 9.1 - We are cautious about adding new sites, but the folks behind this operation and the effort they have put into this new offering makes the decision an easy one. All of TSB’s prior dealings on a vendor level have been positive with the parent group here, so there is comfort in dealing with them and expecting them to do right by new customers.

Website, 9.2 - By combining a business philosophy that puts players first with world-class iGaming software, XBet brings the best of both worlds. For American players especially, finding such a reliable source of online sports betting action is certainly welcome, but players worldwide have also found a new favorite.
