Company & Website Info
MarathonBet are one of the oldest bookmakers on the internet, having set up their digital presence in 1997 but somehow they seem to fall under the radar of many punters. They are on most odds comparison sites so we can see that prices offer value and there are some other great plus points here too.
In addition, the operator has a dedicated .co.uk website so in Britain we should really be checking them out.
One potential drawback for customers is that the offers page here is very hard to find. You need to find an icon at the left hand side of the page marked as ‘Services’ and a Bonus option will flag up. Click on this and you will see that MarathonBet offer a welcome bonus to new players worth up to £20.00 as a 100% match on your first deposit.
Register, fund your account, check all terms and conditions and enter the Promo Code TV20 when asked to do so. It’s not the highest offer but it is easy to use; the only problem is that it is so difficult to find that some new customers will almost certainly miss it.
This is a fairly basic website and it’s certainly not the prettiest but the good news is that the sporting markets are laid out very logically. Markets are laid out in an A – Z order and here’s what you can bet on.
This is a really positive area of the MarathonBet operation with a wide set of options including some very obscure niches. ESports are also covered quite heavily while there is also an active market for specials from politics and entertainment.
Comparison sites show us that you are getting good value for money here with strong prices on football in particular.
There isn’t a huge list of payment providers but only the most obscure of eWallets are left out. Instead, you get all the main players – Skrill, Neteller and PaySafeCard.
Of course, there is the option to use bank transfers or any of the major debit or credit cards so while other bookmakers’ lists may be wider, MarathonBet should have covered everything you could possibly need.
A full set of customer service options are here but once again, they aren’t easy to find. The live chat button is quite prominent at the top of the home page however and this is, after all, how most of us like to send our queries these days.
Beyond that you have to click on that services button again and this gives you two options: the help facility lists a very comprehensive set of FAQs while the contact button reveals a telephone number and an e-mail. They’re not easy to locate but the live chat is relatively simple to find and will be the quickest way to answer any problems.
As a long established bookmaker, MarathonBet give what most of us really want – great prices in the popular markets and set of niche sports if we want to try something different.
As we’ve seen, the website isn’t always easy to navigate and the bonus offer and help options are particularly tough to find. However, it is simple to find your sport and overall, the wider list of positive points make Marathonbet worth a sign up and an addition to your gaming portfolio.
