Although well known in the UK for its sportsbook operations, Betsafe really ought to be a shortcut on the desktop of any serious gamer in the British Isles. Launched in 2006, this Malta-based operation rapidly become popular with northern European players before gamers in the UK became aware of it. They’ve thankfully followed the lead of the major UK high street sportsbook operators who all have highly-regarded, uber-efficient sites with a superlative reputation for fast cashouts – although Betsafe offer a greater variety of games than all of them.
Betsafe have clearly upgraded their suite of games by going into business with different software suppliers at different times over the years, as indicated by the presence of the two distinct casinos that they have under one roof.
The Red Casino is supplied with games from the much-lauded Net Entertainment, whose presence on any site is always a good sign. Swedish-owned Net won’t go into business with anyone unless they’re completely above board, so you can take things like banking, personal data security and fairness as a given. There’s a full suite of table games with some unusual variants like Trey Poker and Red Dog, six versions of Blackjack and the all-important French Roulette. More importantly, though there are around 125 of Net’s amazing slots, with standout classics like the Dick Tracy-inspired Jack Hammer series and the peerless Gonzo’s Quest standing alongside branded games like Scarface and Frankenstein, stemming from Net’s first foray into the movie-based slot sector with Paramount Studios.
Alternatively there’s the Black Casino, which runs on Microgaming software: Strong on videopoker and slots, you’ll also find a full complement of table games here, including – finally – a Craps table, which has been missing from most non-PlayTech casinos for too long. The best of Microgaming’s slot catalogue is here, with around 125 games featuring the web’s largest and most extensive progressive jackpot collection, and recent branded games like The Dark Knight that feature Microgaming’s trademarked Cinematic Spins facility, which allows players to reduce the opacity of the reels as they spin, displaying dynamic scenes from the movie in the background.
More significantly, though, is the addition of Sheriff Gaming’s slots to Microgmaing’s arsenal: Whilst they may not have increased the overall number of games by very much, Sheriff’s games are stunning works of art set within gritty, film-noir themes that will captivate players with their characters and storylines as much as they will with their state-of-the-art 3D visuals. Games like The Amsterdam Masterplan have been hiding away for far too long, so it’s great to see them at Betsafe.
Games are provided by Net Entertainment, Cryptologic, Microgaming, Quikspin and WMS - and everything’s instant play with no download required.
Betsafe is classic sportsbook design: Attractively functional and reassuringly workmanlike, we particularly liked the instant access to all the games through a simple, quick-loading no-nonsense grid system. In terms of navigation it’s as simple as you’ll find bar the existence of two separate casinos under one roof, however this is almost universal practice these days, particularly among UK sportsbook operators that have added a Playtech installation to an existing casino – and it won’t take you long to find your way around.
Betsafe confirmed by live chat that they don’t operate a VIP system, preferring to keep their site simple and clear without gimmicky schemes that come with endless hidden small print.
