GentingBet Sportsbook Review

gentingbetGentingBet’s sportsbook continues the rich tradition of the worldwide Genting brand. The Genting brand has been known to hedonists for a long time now as it is synonymous with supreme customer service and entertainment.

Genting as brand began in 1965 and was started by the visionary founder Sri Lim Goh Tong. Ever since then the brand has expanded and these days it is present in many areas of life, but most prominently it is known as one of the best and largest entertainment resorts in the world. In addition, it is also the name behind one of the most successful sports betting operators globally.

GentingBet has everything that you want to see in a sportsbook. There are tons of sports on offer, their in-play betting section is sublime, the customer support is always up to the task and their levels of safety and security are top notch.

Sports Markets

The list of sports at GentingBet is literally endless. Players who are used to placing bets on even the most obscure leagues and matches will be more than pleased to know that GentingBet has it all and then some.

The sports betting operator has some of the most comprehensive sports betting offer that we have ever seen for popular sports such as football, horse racing, basketball, baseball, and tennis. In fact, the name of the sports betting operator reveals quite a lot as GentingBet is actually one of the best horse racing betting providers. It boasts a ton of horse racing markets at any time of the year and you would be hard pressed to find any other sportsbook which places so much emphasis on the sport with the oldest betting pass time activity.

Another stand out aspect in GentingBet’s sports betting offer is the live betting section. In the in-play betting options on offer at GentingBet players can find whatever their heart desires. Whether it is the Spanish Tercera Division, the Venezuela Second Division or a cricket match from the Caribbean Twenty20, if it is on, it is in GentingBet’s in-play offer.

However, it is not all glowing praise for GentingBet as there are some things that the sportsbook can improve. For example, their eSports betting offer is virtually non-existent. These days almost all reputable sports betting providers have eSports in their portfolios and if GentingBet aspires to be among the best in the business then they have to add eSports such CS:GO, Dota 2, Starcraft 2 and League of Legends to their sportsbook.


GentingBet is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. The company which owns and operates GentingBet, Genting Casinos UK Limited, is in possession of UK Gambling Commission’s license number 537 and this should be enough to convince all aspiring GentingBet punters that there will be a regulatory body to vouch for them in the case of a dispute.

Banking Methods

GentingBet is good at many things, but when it comes to payment methods they should definitely think about including more options for their clients. At the moment, GentingBet clients can only make transactions using debit/credit cards and the internal payment method – GentingPay.

This is very slim pickings to say the least and you would find much less reputable sports betting providers having two, three, or five times the payment options that GentingBet currently offers. This has been the case for some time now and the people at GentingBet certainly seem to feel that less is more when it comes to payment methods. We, however, tend to disagree and feel that if GentingBet wants to keep growing as a brand, it will have to at least include several eWallets into its offer.

When it comes to minimum and maximum deposits, the limits are what you would expect with a sports betting operator the size of GentingBet. For the credit/debit cards the minimum deposit is £10 while for GentingPay it is £50.

When it comes to withdrawals GentingBet stipulates that the minimum withdrawal amount for all of their clients is £10 whereas for GentingPay it is £50. The processing time for credit/debit cards is 3-4 business days for UK customers and 5-7 days for customers from the rest of the world. For GentingPay, withdrawal times are much quicker since it is exclusively available to GentingBet’s UK members. If you withdraw with GentingPay, you can expect to get your funds instantly.


GentingBet’s customer support service is available 24 hours of the day 7 days of the week. This is something that a lot of betting operators promise, but at the end you will find out that’s not the case. However, GentingBet are true to their word and their Live Help desk is available every day of the year except Christmas Day.

They can be contacted through their live chat option, e-mail or telephone. Their live chat response time is very quick and they are also very quick to respond to e-mails. Finally, GentingBet is also very active on social media so if you follow them on Twitter for example, you can get very useful information about current and upcoming betting events as well as help and support tips.


GentingBet is a renowned sports betting brand which has been in the business for quite some time now. They have a very respectable sports betting offer, whose particular highlight is the myriad of horse racing betting events and markets. In addition, the live betting section is one of the best in the betting industry. However, there is still quite a lot of work to be done when it comes to including eSports to GentingBet’s sports betting offer.

Another thing which the betting operator should consider improving is the number of payment methods they accept. There are very few sports betting operators which still conduct their business through only credit/debit cards.


  • Extensive horse racing betting offer
  • Very good in-play betting offer
  • Quality customer support service


  • No eSports in the betting offer
  • Only a couple payment methods
