Arriving on a crowded online betting market in 2018 seeking to provide an innovative gaming experience isn’t an easy job. Newcomers often fail to provide unique features and something new punters can cling on to. That’s not a problem with KTO. The bookie offers a large and interesting collection of sports and offers more payment methods than any other new online bookmaker.
Don’t be fooled by the simple layout and theme. There’s plenty of meat on the barebones design – you’ll just have to look past it. In all honesty, we don’t even like it, but the simple layout works great and fast on PCs, laptops, and smartphones as well.
KTO has an amazing range of sports, starting from football to more unique additions such as netball and squash. Apart from sports, you also get the chance to bet on various political events as well as popular contests such as Eurovision.
You’ll find the largest number of markets and the best odds on football. It’s understandable – after all, it’s the most popular sport in the world. However, don’t underestimate the other sports markets. You can bet on a variety of basketball, tennis, and hockey matches, while also enjoying a wide range of eSports.
The eSports market is what makes KTO so unique. If you’re a punter who follows eSports tournaments, you can bet on COD, Mortal Kombat XL, and DOTA 2 matches among others. It’s one of the most extensive eSports betting offers we’ve seen, and we give KTO kudos for it.
From what we could see, the odds look pretty good for such a fresh bookie. With thousands of markets in tow, we strongly suggest exploring the site first before deciding on your bets. You can place single and combi bets as well as system bets.
Punters can also enjoy live betting at KTO. There’s a great variety of matches you can place your bets on, yet live streaming isn’t available. If KTO plans on attracting new punters, adding live streaming as a feature would surely help a lot.
There have been a number of unlicensed and scam bookies appearing on the market in recent times, but KTO is not one of them. Properly licensed and regulated by the government of Curacao, the fresh bookie is safe to play at.
So, if you were worried about this newcomer’s reliability, the license should be enough to make you trust it.
In the banking department, KTO manages to impress once again (with a few tiny blemishes). Having a large number of deposit and withdrawal options is great news for punters. KTO accepts Visa and MasterCard, but not Maestro, as well as numerous e-wallets (Neteller, Skrill, AstroPay, Qiwi, ecoPayz, Neosurf, and Interac).
The bookie promises 12-hour withdrawals for e-wallets, while all the other options will require more time. You also get the option to deposit and withdraw using bank transfer, but honestly, who else is still using it?
And, although things look great in the banking department, we feel that some popular options such as PayPal and Maestro are missing. Once the bookie adds them, it will reach a larger audience.
You can contact the customer support team at KTO using standard channels such as email, phone or live chat. The live chat isn’t available round the clock which is a pity. Additionally, the phone number isn’t toll-free, which will disappoint many punters.
On the other hand, you get nice Help and FAQ pages where you can find answers to common questions. The good thing about KTO is that the bookie is present on social media sites, having profiles on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Apart from constant updates on eventual promotions and great deals, you can contact the bookie directly on their Facebook profile and you can expect a quick response.
KTO is doing many things right. The site loads fast and works with lightning speed, looking great (although too simple for us) on desktop and mobile platforms as well. However, before KTO can start walking down the road to greatness, it needs to fix a few problems first.
The most glaring omission is the lack of promotions – there’s nothing in that department apart from the welcome bonus. There are also a few key payment methods missing (PayPal) in the banking department, which should be fixed ASAP.
Once KTO resolves these problems, we’re sure it’ll be much more attractive for hundreds of new punters.
