Although a relatively new name in itself, NetBet was created out of rebranding an existing online casino that started taking bets way back in 2001, and has been based in its current location of Malta since 2006. Like many of the best online casinos, it has expanded its offering to cover other popular betting entertainment such as online poker and lottery games and now includes an online sportsbook integrated into its main website.
Although NetBet Sport may not come with the a long tradition in bookmaking as an endorsement of its credentials, you can rest assured of its integrity since it operates its services under the stringent terms of the necessary licences required by both the Maltese authorities and the UK Gambling Commission.

Layout & Usability
NetBet Sport presents its wares in a very neat and sober fashion that’s really rather attractive on first impressions. Everything it offers – which is a formidable array of markets all told – is smartly ordered in navigation categories that make quick work of narrowing down your options to what interests you most. Live betting lives in a separate tab dedicated to In-Play markets with some convenient viewing options to assist with assimilating the action in a way that best suits your needs – for us Event View proved the way to go, but your mileage may vary as they say. Updated odds are signalled in whichever view you choose, but we did find the tiny green and red arrows used a little easy to miss, particularly the green arrow that seems to blend into the default light grey background a little too easily.
Compiling bets into your custom pop-up Betting Slip follows the usual methods found in the best online sportsbooks, and allowed easy execution and editing of our wagering whims without any issues to report. NetBet Sport has obviously done its homework about how to deliver its user interface from seeing how its established rivals do it, and copied the best of breed here. It just works and works well.
In terms of ‘extras’ to woo you here, NetBet Sport can’t promise the depth of live streaming content some rivals boast, nor the custom market pricing that’s beginning to become a popular draw at online bookmakers like Coral and Ladbrokes. However, you will find decent promotions to dig into, including the provision of Cash Out options available on many bets that can be exercised from both its desktop and mobile services. Good stuff and a great way to quit when you’re ahead if you foresee your favoured team suffering a last minute reversal of fortune!

NetBet Sport might not yet be able to compete with the full range of supporting facilities that some of the largest online sportsbooks do (many of which come from a traditional bookmaking background), however it handles the core business of getting you into the markets you want and building the portfolio of sports bets you fancy very nicely indeed. It’s a smart site with lots to recommend it, so definitely one to check out if you’re looking for something away from the usual familiar bookie brands.
