Xbet.ag 2019 Sportsbook Review

Xbet.ag Sportsbook Review Honest and Detailed

Bet Now at Xbet Sportsbook

When you add an ‘X’ to a name, it immediately makes it sound more extreme. Online sports betting sites are no exception. XBet.ag is an example of that. And they do appear to have an in your face, take no prisoners, this is not your grandpa’s sportsbook kind of attitude. Right off the bat they greet us with the words “Welcome To The Last Sportsbook You Will Ever Join.” Is that a promise or a threat? You know, joining a gambling site is not like buying furniture. When you buy furniture, you tell yourself, that’s it. That’s the last sofa I’ll need. Whatever else happens, I got that sofa problem handled.

Why XBet Sportsbook is Different

Sportsbooks are like Forrest Gump’s box of chocolate; you never know what you’re going to get. They’re also like snowflakes; no two are quite alike. That’s why the buffet approach to gambling online is often recommended. So, does XBet make good on its promise/threat? Does it belong among the best online sportsbooks?

Xbet.ag Sportsbook marks the spot

Let’s say for a moment that this isn’t the last but the first sportsbook you have ever joined. Even a greener-than-grass bettor will find it easy to feel their way around this website. There are tabs for the sportsbook, casino, racing book, banking page, and bonuses pages. Let’s click on the sportsbook tab. On the top left hand corner there is a search bar. This search bar enables you to search by team, sport, or event, which is rather useful. And I would be remiss if I did not mention the blog tab. Click on it and you will find a treasure trove of Rogelio Aguas’s articles. Who is Rogelio Aguas, you ask? Beats me. He must be Roger Waters’s non-union Mexican equivalent. Ay caramba!

Live Betting

While we’re on the sportsbook page, let’s talk live betting. The live betting tab on the top of the left hand menu. One click there will lead you to all in-play wagers available at that particular moment. It covers pretty much every event and type of wager possible. Although that being said, we could not find any way to sort bets by type. There is always room for improvement, though. Additionally, live betting is usually capped at $500, and $1,000 is the maximum betting option. Unless you manage to work out a deal with the company. This is more or less on par with most online sports betting sites. However, high rollers – or what we in the biz refer to as “whales” – might find this limit tame. And while we’re on the subject.

Betting Limits

The sky is the limit, but some of us are closer to or father from the sky than others. XBet’s sportsbook limits will give Lilliputian gamblers ample space to stretch out their arms. They can open an account with at least $100, and bonus options are very competitive. Live betting lines are wide-ranging, and individual player props are innovative, extensive and you can pimp them up to your liking. For example, you may:

  • Pick a player
  • Choose a statistical category
  • Get lines on the number of rebounds
  • Lines on the number of rushing yards
  • Lines on the number of shots played
  • Play moving over/unders
  • Match players against each other

Bet on or against individual players in single games.

On the other hand, as hinted above, Brobdingnagian high rollers might find XBet’s limits to be quite a low ceiling.

Country matters

XBet website gives you the ability to adjust the time zone. But then that ability is restricted to Eastern, Central, Mountain, and Pacific US time zones. Which I guess is just as well, since residents of the following countries cannot open an XBet sportsbook betting account:

All things considered, this is actually a shorter list than at most online sports betting sites. Moreover, USA bettors can enjoy secure banking. Which neatly segues us into our next section.

Banking

Banking is a two-way street. One way goes in and the other goes out. We’re talking about deposits and withdrawals.

Deposit methods Processing
Visa Minimum Amount: $45
Maximum Amount: $1,000
MasterCard Minimum Amount: $45
Maximum Amount: $1,000
ACH Minimum Amount: $100
Maximum Amount: No maximum
Bank Wire Transactions Minimum Amount: $2,000
Maximum Amount: No maximum
Person To Person Transactions Minimum Amount: $100
Maximum Amount: $690
Bitcoin Minimum Amount: $25
Maximum Amount: $10,000
Phone Transfer Minimum Amount: $45
Maximum Amount: $1,000
Withdrawal methods Processing
Visa Minimum amount: 45 USD
Maximum amount: 1,000 USD
ACH Minimum amount: 100 USD
Maximum amount: No maximum
Bank Wire Transactions Minimum amount: 2,000 USD
Maximum amount: No maximum
Person-2-Person Minimum amount: 100 USD
Maximum amount: 690 USD
Person-2-Person blue Minimum amount:100 USD
Maximum amount: 500 USD
Bitcoin Minimum amount: 25 USD
Maximum amount: 10,000 USD
Phone Transfer Minimum amount: 45 USD
Maximum amount: 1,000 USD

Bitcoin is the only withdrawal method that does not entail a fee. Furthermore, you’ll get your money – or is that Bitcoins? – in three days. As opposed to the week-plus that it takes to deliver eChecks or wire transfers. Generally speaking, payout requests are processed from 8am until 2pm EST every day. All requests must be made over the phone. Processing takes at least 48 hours. Documentation such as personal ID and copies of credit cards may have to be provided.

It’s important to note that not all XBet customers are equal. The lowest customer tier is color-coded black. Black customers are entitled to the lowest features and incentives. Boy, do I ever hope that color thing is an unfortunate coincidence. The point is that the higher up you are (and I guess the lighter shade you are) the better off you are. The remaining categories bronze, silver, and gold. Really, couldn’t they have come up with, I don’t know, copper, instead of black? Anyway, gold customers get faster deposit and payout times, higher deposit and withdrawal limits, and more benefits.

Banking becomes a piece of cake once you have gotten the whole color-coding thing straight. In order to do that, we suggest contacting XBet’s customer service department. And that’s cue to move on to the following section.

Xbet Customer service

You can call 844-377-9238, fill out an e-mail contact form, or initiate a chat by clicking on “Chat with us” on the bottom left corner. Chat is the quicker of the three contact options, and it’s available 24 hours a day seven days a week. The customer support staff is friendly, helpful, and well-versed on the subject matter.

Casino and Racebook

Casinos are frequently sportsbooks’ redheaded step children. That applies to XBet as well. There is no poker room nor is there any apparent live dealer option. Quantity rules over quality, so hopefully you don’t mind knock-off games like Boomaji and Slotfather.

Table games

  • European Blackjack
  • American Blackjack
  • Craps
  • European Roulette
  • American Roulette
  • Caribbean Poker

The Racebook offers action on:

  • Harness Racing USA
  • Thoroughbred Racing USA
  • Greyhound Racing USA
  • Harness Racing Canada
  • Thoroughbred Racing Canada

  • Thoroughbred Racing FR
  • Thoroughbred Racing UK

And on such events as:

  • Breeders’ Cup Racing
  • Kentucky Derby Racing
  • Preakness Stakes Racing
  • Belmont Stakes Racing
  • Triple Crown Racing

 

The racebook is unto its own a separate entity from the sportsbook. However, like the casino, it comes across more as an afterthought than anything else.

Mobility

You need not download an app to access XBet’s mobile betting platform on your smartphone or tablet. Gamblers can enjoy the full Xbet experience on the go, as they say in the parlance of our times.

Xbet sportsbook Bonuses

  • 100% sign-up bonus up to $300 (initial deposit only)
  • 20% sign-up bonus up to $500 (initial deposit only)
  • 100% casino sign-up bonus up to $300 (initial deposit only)
  • 25% reload bonus up to $500 (initial deposit only)
  • 75% rebate for existing customers
  • 20% Risk-Free Bet
  • MMA and Boxing Bad beat
  • Superman promotion
  • Show me the money promotion

 

Spread the word (refer a friend reward; 100% for up to $100 per person you refer. There is a 5x rollover. The $100 is not credited until your friend’s money is in their account for 30 days and rolled over five times).

Pretty standard stuff except maybe for the MMA and boxing, Superman, and Show me the money bonuses. Xbet will refund your losing wager if a boxing match ends in a knockout in the first round. Or if a MMA fight ends in knockout, submission, or referee stoppage in the first 60 seconds of the first round. Favorites must be listed at a minimum of -250 or higher in order to request a refund.

In the Superman promotion, XBet will double your winnings if you bet at least $20 on the spread for each NFL game in a week. And get the spreads right, of course.

And in the Show me the money promotion, XBet will correct your bet and thrown in an extra 20 bucks if there is a mistake on their part on a phone wager.

Final thoughts

In many ways, XBet is just another of the myriad gambling websites in existence. But in the most important way, they stand out among the pack. The site’s owners and developers really threw everything but the kitchen sink at the sportsbook, and a lot it stuck. The rest, such as the casino and racebook, is perfunctory at best. Then again, that’s how it crumbles, cookie-wise, in this wacky business we call online gambling. In conclusion, if this sportsbook site were a sofa, it might very well be the last sofa you ever buy.
