GTBets is a relatively new site that has quickly become a popular destination for the US player seeking an all-round gambling experience. With an impressive offering of sports betting, horse racing and a casino, this is a one stop shop for all of your wagering needs. With new and innovative promotions, daily sports betting lines and action on all of the major horse races, GTBets is a site on the rise.
Sports Betting Coverage
When you first enter the sports section of the site you are met with a page featuring both promotions and links to the big events of the day. The left hand side of the page offers a lines menu, with links to a wide range of sports. The first three links are for special wagering, today’s live events and future live events. The NFL, Major League Baseball, The NBA and the NHL are all covered comprehensively, as well as a soccer section of the site. Tennis, Golf, Auto Racing, Boxing and MMA each have their own section, as well as college sports and the WNBA. The range of sports is good, and the site specializes in the more popular market types like spreads and money lines.
GTBets.eu – Presentation, Feel and Usability
The first thing you’ll notice upon entering the site is the fresh, vibrant look to the site. The orange and blue color scheme works well, and the site contains enough information without ever feeling too cluttered. Navigation between areas of the site is very simple, and you can switch easily between sides/totals, Parlays and If-bets in each section.
GTBets.eu – Deposits and Withdrawals
GTBets offer a wide variety of deposit options. American Express, Visa and Bitcoin can all be used without fees, and accounts will be funded immediately. Direct cash and quick cash are also options. These might come with fees – however the site will covers all fees when making a deposit of $200 or more.
The most popular withdrawal method is by bank wire, which carries a $60 fee. This method can be used for a minimum withdrawal of $100 and will take around 5-7 business days. A check, quick cash and direct Cash are also withdrawal options. Fees can vary for all withdrawal methods, so check the sites terms and conditions for details. Free bitcoin payouts are now available.
NEW UPDATE – January 2016, GTBets now has plenty payout options, including Free bitcoin payouts ($300 min) and payouts straight to your credit card ($50 min) with a $15 +1.5% fee. So a $1,000 payout to your credit card would have a $30 fee while a $300 payout would have a $19.50 fee.
You can also get $300-$600 in Quick Cash where you will receive your money within 48 hours.
Beware – Currently (June 2015) there are NO ways to cash out small amounts ($100 & up) without a $50-$60 fee.
Bank wires are available for $60 (plus your bank may have extra fees) for payout of $100 – $5,000. This is actually a fair price for wires in the $2k-$5k range, but not for smaller bank wires.
Check payouts have a $50 fee.. So I wouldn’t plan on getting any payouts from GTBets for under $500, or the fees will kill you.
GTBets.eu – Why would you use the site?
GTBets are renowned for offering a good range of top class sports, and excellent odds in comparison to other sites in the industry. With a dedicated horse racing section, they offer more choice than many sports books, and with the option of playing at the casino as well, you have all of your betting options in one handy bankroll. GTBets also offer a mobile app for iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Nokia for betting on the go. The site has an excellent support network, with the live chat service being quick, easy and very informative.
Deposit Bonuses and Offers
This is an area where GTBets compares very well with the competition. To start you off they offer a choice:
- 100% deposit bonus of up to $250
- 50% bonus of up to $500.
Here’s the things I like about this bonus:
- This is a CASH bonus – you keep both the wager and win amount on each wager, which is much better than a Free Play bonus.
- Only a 5x betting rollover. This is the lowest “required betting” I have seen on a signup bonus.
GTBets.eu – Special Features
A promotion that will appeal to many sport bettors is the favorite team’s promotion – an innovative and very popular idea. Here you’ll choose your two favorite NFL and NCAA football teams and your two favorite NBA and NCAA basketball teams. For all bets on these sides throughout the regular season you’ll gain a point for your team at Basketball and a half a point for your favored football teams.
Our Opinion of GTBets
The site is a newer player, but is making big strides towards the top of the industry. They are achieving this with their great pricing, excellent bonuses and their generous and wide ranging promotions. Add to this the great customer service and you’re looking at a site that is hard not to recommend.
