Operating as part of the Betclic Everest group since its acquisition in 2009 Expekt focuses first and foremost on customers from Northern Europe. It caters to them well by offering extensive football, basketball and ice hockey markets and its brand visibility in these regions is aided by a solid group of ambassadors.
Customer support is good but the lack of horse racing, esports and a sign up offer lets this operator down somewhat. If you’re a fan of football, basketball or ice hockey however then Expekt are worth your consideration.
Right now, you can claim a Expekt sign up offer of 100% up to £10 in freebets. If All you have to do is to sign up and place your first bet up to £10 on any sport event you like (min. odds 2.00). As soon as your bet is settled, you will receive a freebet of 100% of your first bet up to £10. T&C's apply. New customers 18+.
It's simple to register an account too, click on one of the links on this page to be taken to the bookie site. Hit the Register Now button and your sign up form will open. Complete all necessary fields with true and accurate information, including your personal information. Once you've entered the requested information and read the terms and conditions, click on Create My Account.
Now you can make your first deposit and once your payment has gone through, you can start betting on the decent range of sports and markets available here.
Whilst the lack of a new customer bonus is disappointing, there are still opportunities to enjoy promotional opportunities at Expekt. One such promotion is the Expekt Club. Members of the Expekt Club can be rewarded with a €5 free bet each week, if they place €25 worth of bets between Monday and Sunday.
This offer requires you to opt-in, and the terms and conditions are subject to change. Check out the main page on their site for the current t's and c's.
If you're a fan of betting on accumulators, Expekt could be the bookie for you. Check out the Expekt Multi+ promotion. Place a 5+ fold accumulator on selected sports and odds, and if each leg comes in you could receive a bonus on top of your winnings, up to 100%!
So, if you place a successful 5 fold, Expekt could reward you with a 5% bonus. Bet on a 16+ acca and you could see your winnings boost by 100%.
If you bet with Expekt regularly, you could be invited to become a Sports VIP. Becoming a VIP can reward you in many ways, including extra bonus opportunities. So, while there may not be a specific Expekt sign up offer, you can still enjoy a number of bonus options!
Expekt puts a real focus on Football betting as part of its sportsbook. Many of the Featured Odds are for Football, and you also have ‘The Colossus’ which will be centred around pools of 7 Football matches.
You also have the majority of Popular Bets and Last Minute Bets attributed to Football selections. One look at the A-Z menu shows nearly 12,000 active Football markets, with no more than 100 for any other.
Football Betting is available in each of the following countries:
Unfortunately, there are no Horse Racing markets on Expekt. Yes, they might have a good range of other sports and betting events, but the lack of Horse Racing is certainly a negative for the sportsbook as a whole.
There are no E-Sports markets on Expekt. It might not be the most popular form of sports betting as things stand, but the speed of growth for the events around the world, and indeed the level of awareness about E-Sports, suggests that there will soon be a spike in this market. Many of the biggest bookmakers have both match and outright tournament markets for games including League of Legends, Dota 2 and Counter Strike.
The live betting page on Expekt is well structured to give you a guide of all the In-Play events for major sports including Football, Tennis, Volleyball and Rugby.
You can also filter the competitions to show events specific to a certain league. However, what we like more than this is the option to switch the full page to show odds for a certain market. So rather than seeing 1x2 or 1-2 selections with the rest hidden, you can change the display to show bet types such as Next Goal, Half Time Result, Set Winner, Total Points etc.
You can also easily see which of your bets are 'Live Now' and which have recently ended. The one thing we do miss here is a more extensive calendar of upcoming live events, which would enable you to plan for your next bet, and indeed your next visit to Expekt.
The Expekt slogan is 'Sharpen your game', a term they use within the logo and across the website. When you login to the site, rather than seeing a match list or live options, you are confronted by a boxed format with promo sliders around the biggest games and details of their ongoing offers.
Once you navigate to the sports page, you will see a Featured Odds section at the top left of your page. This is the equivalent of the more traditional 'Quick Picks' with a focus on the biggest competitions and the Colossus Bets pool, which they are heavily promoting throughout Euro 2016 in France.
The A-Z sports menu is fairly comprehensive, but we are actually drawn to the 'Top Bets' in the mid page. Here, we like the fact that the match odds are complemented by a few words about the game to encourage you to click through.
Once you are on a specific match, you will often see a few quick match facts, particularly for Football, just above the odds for win-lose-draw (1x2). These are shown next to the Expekt icon, with a 'Sharpen your game' info message on hover.
Finally, we are pleased to see that they have a detailed statistics section which can help you to place your bet. They will also tell you as part of this which matches are most clicked, and also which competitions and sports are most popular on Expekt.
The stats are powered by betradar, and will give you everything you need to know. For example, you might click into the Champions League Football and find stats for players, teams, head to head records, fixtures and archives.
You can even find certain more pointed stats for your bet such as which teams score the most goals, pick up the most cards or play in games with the highest total goals.
Players at Expekt have two choices when it comes to customer support; it’s available via live chat and email ([email protected]).
The response times are displayed on the site too which can be a regrettable move on the operator’s side but the transparency is pleasing.
Expekt is European focused and the site is available in 23 languages. It ensures brand awareness in different European regions by targeted ambassadors. These have included ex football related names in the form of Germany’s Fredi Bobic, former footballer and manager Zibi Boniek in Poland, Sepp Piontek in Denmark and Jari Rantanen in Finland.
At the African Cup of Nations in 2010, Expekt also signed a deal with Cameroonian legend Roger Milla. Egil Olsen who has in the past managed Norway and Iraq had been an ambassador too.
Outside of football Expekt achieves visibility in poker by way of global ambassador Scotty Nguyen. Mats Wilander, a one time world number one tennis player from Sweden, is another sports star that has been associated with Expekt in the past.
Thus far Expekt has done little in the way of forming partnerships with teams or sponsoring events. This is an expensive route to go down but is often worthwhile due to the extended and wide exposure offered.
There are various locally aimed Twitter channels for Expekt such as @ExpektSuomi, @ExpektUK and @ExpektPolska. All have followings in the low thousands and showcase their promotions, the targeted ambassador and general sports and betting odds news. There’s much in the way of video content too
Expekt have launched the Colossus Bets pool for Euro 2016, with a massive £10,000,000 in prizes on offer. All you have to do is predict the correct score for the selected 7 matches.
The Colossus will be a permanent feature on Expekt moving forwards, but the prizes available will be ramped up somewhat for Euro 2016. There will be a guaranteed £70 million in jackpots across the tournament.
When you place an accumulator with 5 or more selections, you can get up to 100% bonus on top of your initial winnings. The offer is only for specific Football, Basketball and Ice Hockey markets where the Multi+ logo is displayed.
If you have a void selection or a postponement which brings your total valid selections to less than 5, you will not be eligible for the premium bonus. The promotion does not apply to system bets, and the maximum Multi+ bonus is €10,000. The bonus amounts available are shown below:
Bet Type and Multi+ Boost
5-fold - 5%
6-fold - 10%
7-fold - 15%
8-fold - 20%
9-fold - 30%
10-fold - 40%
11-fold - 50%
