Founded in 2007, 12Bet has been one of the world’s leading bookmakers for the last number of years despite several controversies over the past number of years. Their array of sponsorships covering of kinds of sports has enabled them to keep there brand in forefront of the public eye. Now for the important business, let’s see is the sports book what they say it is or just good marketing.

12bet offer two welcome bonuses for new customers. Let’s have a look and see if their welcome offer is as good as the marketing skills.

12Bet have expanded there brand into the world of casino. Even tho they are one of the biggest betting companies in Asia, they have kept the casino site more traditional then most other firms.
They have a large selection of slots, video poker and table games. They have a small selection of video poker with just 5 games to select from, which for a big firm is quite disappointing.
Their slots are not much of an improvement with only 8 slot games to choose from, but saying that each game have a guaranteed jackpot. The graphics are a nice and crisp for a good visual and playing experience.
12Bet table games have 3 games to choose with roulette, blackjack, baccarat. With each one of theses games, there is a different version of them for you to choose from.
12Bet offer a nice visual looking mobile version, which is available from android and iOS platforms. The visual aspect is nice and the system itself is quite easy to use for all users. The mobile version works along the same line as the desktop version. The simple icon platform is quite good, the way they have it laid out is simple but smart. Once you are on the sports book platform then you are greeted with all current live in play betting.
The same can be said about the casino mobile version, visually nice, quick and easy to use.
There is no offer or promotion for signing up to the casino, which is a big down fall for new customers.

The sense I get from looking into the workings of this system/product that 12Bet has to offer is good. Its fast operating system seems to stand up to the demand of every kind of traffic that goes through its desktop and mobile site. Their customer service falls into the good reliability section, with its fast action team members always on hand to help.

|Sponsorship||Table Tennis Team World Cup, Taekwondo GP|
There are a few things that leave 12Bet down. For example, the amount of countries that are restricted to the site is madness. The list is way too long to list out as it consists of over 100 countries. Not only this, the promotions and offers are few and far between. Lack of ambition in my view is plain to see in the way that they don’t offer up incentives or bonus for even existing customers. 12Bet seem like they are happy to run it this way at this moment, which if it woks for them in the Asia market is fine. While they are only after expanding into the UK, it is yet to be seen when or if they will expand their brand into the rest of Europe and beyond.
