Pros and Cons of BetKing
When you get going on BetKing, you will notice how easy the website is to navigate. No hidden tunnels for you to search through in order to find the bet you want. All your sports are available on the left-hand side of the screen. Simply find your sport, click on it and away you go.
A theme that occurs throughout this review is BetKing’s special offer section. This allows you to bet on just one league with a different number of markets available. This resonates with us because your knowledge of one league could be considerably better than another. Give yourself a fighting chance of winning some serious money. Play to your strengths.
We love the way each sporting section is set up. Instead of randomly scrolling down to find a certain league, BetKing has put them in an order in which makes it easy for you. Just find the country you wish to bet on and all your selections will be there to view.
Not every site is perfect, we all know that. Live streaming is a massive part of betting nowadays, and apart from the live greyhound racing there is none available, Now that doesn’t mean the site is not fit for purpose, it’s the only thing missing really.
Which markets do BetKing cover?
When you enter your journey with BetKing, you can take part in just under 20 different sports. As expected, and the same all across the world, football or soccer to some is the most popular sport to bet on.
Billions of people worldwide watch soccer on a regular basis, so there is no surprise that it is popular among the betting world. You can bet on any league you want, whether that league is in England, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Turkey, Portugal of Scotland. They also cover the likes of the Champions League, Europa League and International competitions.
With soccer, as you would expect, there are plenty of markets to bet on. Basically, if it happens in a game, you can bet on it.
We’ve already mentioned the different leagues and competitions you can have a flutter on. But the markets that are covered during each game is quite extensive as well. Betting on the overall outcome of a game may seem the easiest option, there is plenty more still to do. One popular market revolves around how many goals will be scored in each game. You can do an accumulator that covers ‘Both teams to score’, ‘First goal’, Last goal and the amount of goals actually scored.
Soccer is not the only sport covered here at BetKing. Tennis, Basketball and Ice Hockey are extremely popular. With tennis, you can cover every single tournament that is taking place. Whether that is the ITF in Telde, Cairo or Monastir, major tournaments like Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open. Or the ATP Tour. BetKing will have you covered.
Many people believe that the NBA is the only basketball tournament worth watching or betting on. Well, those people would be wrong. Yes, the NBA is the most popular competition in the world when it comes to shooting hoops – but there is much more out there.
Basketball in Europe is really taking off with tournaments like the Austrian Bundesliga, Greece AI, Italy Serie A and the Czech Republic NBL. As well as those domestic leagues, there is the Euroleague for men and women and the Eurocup.
It is not just in Europe where basketball is taking off. The Argentina LNB, China CBA, Australia NBL and South Korea WKBL are all gaining speed and you can bet on all these tournaments with BetKing.
Some betting markets regards to basketball are a little bit different than say soccer. You can place bets for things to happen either by halves or quarters – whether that is the amount of goals scored in the over and under section. Or you can bet on something that is known as an Asian Handicap. This allows you to predict the outcome of the match after the handicap score has been added to the final score.
Aside from the live sports, BetKing also have their own Virtual section. This has a number of special features that take you into a whole new world of gambling. They have four different markets on offer, these include Football League, Greyhounds, Color-Color and Super 6 – these all have their own special ways in order to help you win money.
What Types of Bets Can Punters Make at BetKing?
As we all know, soccer is the most popular sport in the world. So, it makes sense that people will bet on it. For the next few points on how BetKing operates, I will be using soccer as the main example.
We’ve already mentioned some of the ways you can bet on matches, including the 1×2 where you pick either the home team, away team or draw. That is probably be the most popular bet on the market, but some punters want to see their bet run and add more excitement to their afternoon or evening. The problem with this bet is your selection could be 3-0 after 15 minutes and your whole accumulator is ruined.
You can just bet on individual matches if you please. But accumulators seem to be the best bets in terms of enjoying a more lucrative payout. Doing accumulators where you need both teams to score or over 1.5 goals or under 3.5 goals are very popular. The only problem with that is you would need to place a lot of matches in this acca for it to become worthwhile.
Let’s go back to individual matches. The Premier League is the most-watched football competition in the world, so we’ll concentrate on that for a moment. Let’s use the Merseyside Derby between Liverpool and Everton as an example.
At the moment, there are close to 700 markets just available for this one match. These range from the over/under goals, draw no bet, correct score, Half-time/full-time, home team to win either half, away team to win either half. There is also first and last goal scorer, the amount of booking points, corners and even what time the first substitution will take place.
We’ve mentioned it before, but basically anything you want to bet on during a football match. You can do here at BetKing.
When placing a bet with BetKing, you can have a minimum of one selection and a maximum of 40 selections. The minimum stake you can place while betting is N100, while there is no actual maximum stake. It’s important to note that you cannot place a stake that would exceed your possible winnings.
Are there any Special Bets available on the site?
As we’ve already mentioned, there is a wide range of sports to bet on but soccer seems to be the most popular. Once you select soccer as your main area to bet on, you may see a section that says Special Offer. These offers will relate to games happening on that actual day. For example, some popular offers will relate the amount of goals scored in each game.
Here is a brief example of what is on offer:
Total League Goals – Predict whether the amount of goals will be over/under a specific number in a certain league or tournament. Extra-time goals and penalty shootouts do not count.
Daily League Goals – Predict whether the number of goals in a certain competition (Champions League) will be over/under a certain number.
Special Mix – This allows you to select a certain match and use a number of different markets in the one bet. Eg, 1×2 FT and corners over/under FT and ET.
Daily League Penalties – Predict whether or not the number of penalties awarded in each league will be over/under a specific number.
Daily League Shots on Target – Predict whether the number of shots on target will be over/under the specified amount.
