⭐ Betsafe USA
Betsafe is not yet live in the U.S. This review is based on their existing Canadian sportsbook and the information given might change once the betting site launches.
Swedish Betsson Group is almost ready to launch their sportsbook product on this side of the pond, starting with Colorado, home of one of the more progressive sports betting legislations. With the intention of expanding into other states during the next year, Betsafe will be following the path of fellow Swede Unibet, which has been launching sportsbooks and online casinos in several states in 2021. Let’s see what you can expect from Betsafe.
⭐ When Will Betsafe Launch in the U.S.?
They are looking to get their betting site up in Colorado during the first couple of months in 2022, maybe even in time for Super Bowl bets. There is no word yet which other states Betsson Group has in their radar, so we will have to wait and see how their first site fares among tough competition.
⭐ Betsafe Sportsbook Bonus
Betsafe sportsbook bonus for the U.S. has not been announced yet. Below is their bonus from Canada, which could be offered in the U.S. as well. When the bonus is released, we will update this section.
|💰 Betsafe Bonus||100% Match up to $500 (Projected)|
|🎟️ Betsafe Promo Code||TBA|
|✔️ Wagering Requirement||6x|
|🏈 Minimum Odds||-125|
|💵 Minimum Deposit||$15|
|🏛️ Casino Partner||Dostal Alley Casino in Central City|
While there are no details of what the Betsafe bonus will be, you can expect either a matched deposit like in Canada, or a risk-free bet, which is common in U.S. sports betting. All bonuses have terms and conditions attached to them, explaining how the bonus is used and cashed out. When we find out more details, you’ll be the first to know.
On the Canadian site, Betsafe has a couple sports betting bonuses, such as Parlay Insurance and cash back for losing bets. Parlays have become popular in the U.S. as well, so we would expect at least one of the promotions to be related to parlay bets. Other popular promotions in Colorado include refer-a-friend and free bets, which you get after betting on certain sports or leagues with a certain dollar amount.
⭐ Betsafe States
Betsafe is looking to launch in several states soon after Colorado, although they have not announced which states might be next. Potential other states for Betsafe include New Jersey, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and West Virginia, each of which has a vibrant online sports betting market.
⭐ How to Sign Up for Betsafe US
You can’t sign up yet, as the Betsafe site is not live in the U.S. You also can’t download the app yet. However, all online sportsbooks that operate in Colorado are required to verify their customers’ age and identity. Therefore, Betsafe will request the following information from all its users:
- Home address
- Email address
- Phone number
- Date of birth
- Last four digits of Social Security Number
⭐ Sports Betting Markets
Betsafe has close to 30 sports on their Canadian site, and numerous leagues for them. We can expect a similar selection for the Colorado market as well, and probably some American favorites such as NASCAR. Below are some of the sports Betsafe has listed on their site:
- Formula 1
- Special Events like the Olympics
Colorado hosts numerous professional sports teams, and bettors always look for the best odds when it comes to their home town favorites. The Denver Broncos are rightfully the most popular team in CO, and the NFL dominates the betting handle each football season. Colorado Rockies and the soccer team Colorado Rapids are summertime favorites, while the Denver Nuggets and the Colorado Avalanche hope to attract bettors to the Ball Arena to follow the home games. It would definitely boost Betsafe’s presence in the Centennial State to partner with one or more of these teams, so we’ll wait with interest to see what marketing campaigns they launch.
⭐ Bet Types
Placing bets is easy once you get the hang of it. There are the straight bets: moneyline, spread, and total, and other bet types such as props, parlays, and futures. Most sportsbooks in Colorado offer a decent selection of all types, but some stand out with huge prop bet selections. When Betsafe launches, we will take a look at the odds they provide for various sports as well.
|Moneyline||You bet on the winner of the game, overtime included||Vancouver Canucks +132
Colorado Avalanche -156
|Spread Bet||Bets on the point/goal difference between the teams||Canucks +1.5 -185
Avalanche -1.5 +150
|Totals (Over/Under)||Betting on the total number of goals or points in the game||Over 4.5 -370
Under 4.5 +280
|Parlays||A single wager has multiple legs (bets)||Canucks, Kraken, Kings to win +997|
|Prop Bets||Bets on game events or players that don't affect the outcome of the game|| Both teams to score 1 goal
Yes -1111, No +560
|Futures Bets||Betting on future events, such as the Stanley Cup Champion||2021-22 Champion:
Colorado Avalanche +550
|Live Betting||In-game bets are wagers made during the game as the odds change depending on the action||Next Goal, Result, Total Goals|
⭐ Online Banking
Some of the online banking options Betsafe offers on their Canadian website are Visa & Mastercard credit cards, Paysafecard, and online banking. We expect all of those to carry over to Colorado as well, hopefully with the additions of PayPal and ACH, which are also popular options. We will list all deposit and withdrawal methods once they become available.
⭐ Customer Support
Betsafe has a standard FAQ on their website, and Canadian bettors can also contact the customer support through email or live chat, or leave a call back request.
⭐ Why Should You Sign Up at Betsafe?
While we don’t know the bonus offer nor the exact markets yet, you should consider signing up at Betsafe when the site launches. The Betsson Group has a ton of online gambling experience after operating in other countries for years, so you can be sure that the platform will be high quality. In addition, they will probably offer great selections of European soccer, so bettors looking for Premier League or Champions League odds should be in luck. Finally, Betsafe is a late comer to the Colorado gambling market. This means they have to stand out from the crowd if they wish to attract sports bettors that have already signed up at multiple sportsbooks. We are excited to see what this will mean in terms of their offerings.
