12Bet may not be at the top of the list of commonly used online bookmakers in the United Kingdom, but this bookie is certainly making waves in Europe and beyond. With odds available on almost 30 sports and events, many bettors are now taking a more serious look at what 12Bet can offer. 12Bet have sponsors and links with a number of high profile football clubs, as well as with snooker and badminton. These links have brought this bookie to the forefront of the betting community, keen to take advantage of the offers currently available.
Significant Terms: Available to NEW players only. 6 qualifying bets. Horse racing bets do not qualify. Min stake £10. Max bonus £35. No E-Wallets. Min odds EVS (2.0) or 2/5 (1.4) for combos. BeGambleAware.org. 18+. Terms and conditions apply.
So, how do you go about claiming your offer? There are certain t's and c's attached to this one that are different to most other bookmaker sign up bonuses, we'll take a look at the finer details later but first let's examine the main points to this promotion.
First up, head over to the 12Bet website to begin the registration process. You can do this via any of the links displayed on this page. Next, click on the Join Now button to open up your sign up form.
Enter all the required information and hit Submit. You will then get the opportunity to make your first 12Bet deposit.
Whilst 12Bet accept a number of payment methods, in order to qualify for this offer you must make deposits via a credit or debit card. There is a minimum deposit of £10 required to claim this offer.
Now, it's time to place your first bets. To earn your bonus, you need to place six separate bets of at least £10 (known as qualifying bets). You can stake as much as you like, but note that the maximum bonus return is £35. Any stakes higher than this amount will class as £35 when it comes to your bonus.
Once you've placed your bets and they've been settled, you can then claim your bonus. Contact the customer support team to get your bonus token, which should be credited within 24 hours of request.
To summarise, follow the steps below to claim your 12Bet sign up offer:
We've talked briefly about the terms and conditions attached to your new customer offer, but we'll take a deeper look at all you need to know to qualify for your bonus.
To qualify for your new customer bonus, you need to deposit using either a credit or debit card. There is no minimum deposit as such, but your bets need to be of a stake of at least £10.
You need to place six bets with a stake of at least £10. You can bet on any sporting event, except for horse racing, so long as the odds are at least Evens (2.0) for Singles or 2/5 (1.4) for Combinations. Your 12Bet bonus amount will be the minimum you place on one of these six bets. For example, if you place five bets of £35 and one of £10, your bonus amount will be £10 - in other words, they will match your lowest stake.
If you place a larger amount than £35 on any or all of your qualifying bets, the most you will receive back is £35.
Once all six of your qualifying bets have been settled, you can then claim your bonus amount. To do this, contact the customer support team and, providing you met all the t's and c's, they will award you with your bonus.
12Bet often make available a number of promotions, including free bet opportunities, for both their Sportsbook and Casino sites. Currently, the 12Bet sign up offer is the only promotion available for Sportsbook customers, when this changes we'll add the latest offers here.
As above, there are occasions when 12Bet make available a number of bonus opportunities. At the moment, there are none available for Sportsbook members, but any that are added to the Promotions tab will be listed here.
We actually quite like the clarity within the 12bet layout. Rather than over spamming on promotional deals, they stick to just their £35 welcome free bet and best odds guaranteed.
This means the rest of the site is kept pretty clean, with a home page including live betting events per sport, betting highlights and quick picks. You also have a bet search on the top left to help locate your match or event.
There is a small live schedule preview on the right side of the page, but we would prefer to see a more detailed calendar of live events. 12bet is also some way behind other bookmakers in terms of personalizing your live betting experience. We can't find any option to add to a favorites menu so that we can browse the site and return to our chosen game.
We do like the option to check on all previous match results and match statistics before placing a follow-up bet. The information provided by Enetpulse should help you towards more successful bets!
The mobile design is fine, and enables pretty quick placement direct from your pocket. However, we would prefer to see a drop down menu from the top, rather than an extended scroll across the middle of your screen. You have to move across 5/6 icons before this full page menu is made visible.
The position of My Bets at the top of your screen is handy, but would be much more effective if it came in tandem with a cash out service. We also like the easy option to flick between matches that are 'Live Now', 'Upcoming' and 'Highlights'.
At the moment they don’t have an App that you can download, but the mobile version is available for all mobile devices, including Apple and Android Phones and Tablets.
12bet has a way to go to match the visibility of the top bookmakers in the industry. They currently have fewer than 5,000 Twitter followers. When you consider that bet365 have more than 335,000, the disparity becomes clear. At the time of checking, they had gone more than 2 weeks without a post, which perhaps highlights their lack of focus on this resource.
They have a few different Facebook pages, with the most popular 'liked' by almost 3,000 users. A quick look at this page will show you they are either dual posting or using some sort of RSS feed to apply the same updates via Facebook and Twitter.
Research into content marketing will tell you that isn't the best approach. Certain things work better on certain channels. For example, Twitter is all about timing, particularly working around trending topics and hashtags.
Live Chat is the most popular form of support on 12bet, and is accessible from a permanent hyperlink at the top of the page. We have tested this and they are very quick to respond and resolve your query. You will be asked to give the help you received a thumbs up or down, with the option to add more detailed feedback.
You can also contact customer support via email on [email protected] or by post using the following address: 12bet.uk 2nd Floor Athol House, 21a – 23 Athol Street, Douglas, Isle of Man, IM1 1LB.
Finally there is a contact form which you can fill in directly from the website. You just have to confirm your name, number, email and subject alongside your query. They will endeavour to respond as quickly and efficiently as possible.
