Presentation of one of the newest bookmakers
In the last few years, bookmakers with Eastern European roots have sprouted like mushrooms one after another. Some of them offer significantly higher odds, generous bonuses, and in some areas even higher quality services compared to the "old dogs" on the market. One of these bookmakers is MELbet. Founded in 2012, which in recent years has done everything possible to ensure expansion in Central and Western Europe.
We are aware of the fact that MELbet is practically unknown among players from some countries, so we decided to present you MELbet in the form of a detailed review. Of course, we will not touch them with gloves, as the main idea is to provide correct information based on objective facts. If you are interested in what conclusions we have reached, please continue with us and read on!
Access and alternative link to MELbet
At the time of writing, we did not need an alternative link to access the MELbet site. The site can be loaded via the official URL. Of course, we cannot guarantee that this will always be the case. It is very likely that the official address will be filtered by Internet providers, by order of the State Gambling Commission.
Fortunately, this fact should not bother us. If this happens in the future, we will make sure to regularly update this article with an up-to-date working link for MELbet and you will be able to take advantage of all the bonuses and benefits offered by the operator.
Regulatory bodies controlling the work of MELbet
The MELbet website is owned by Tutkia Ltd., a company incorporated in Cyprus (registration number HE389219). MELbet has only one operating license (from Curaçao № 5536 / JAZ). Even with the little information available, we can say that MELbet operates legally. However, we cannot ignore the fact that we do not find any "trace" of independent auditors (eg eCOGRA, EGBA, ESSA, iTechLabs, GLI, Thawte, IBAS, etc.). This is a serious shortcoming that we hope will be addressed in the future. However, it is true that the feedback about MELbet to users on the Internet is mostly positive.
Design versus functionality - a test of the MELbet platform
At first glance, the MELbet site seems quite simple. Visitors here are greeted by various menus, current highlights, upcoming events, various promotions and special offers. Even novice players will be able to quickly navigate the platform. The buttons related to our profile, registration and login are located in the upper right corner of the usual place. Above is the main menu, on the left are the sports, and in the center are markets and odds.
We also tested the online casino and live casino sections, where everything went smoothly and without delay. As a super big plus we consider the fact that the site is translated into many languages. In conclusion, we will say that the site is functional and suitable for the purpose, whether it is sports betting or playing in an online casino / live casino. However, we believe that the platform deserves a more effective design to meet today's needs.
MELbet - several ways to register
The MELbet bookmaker provides you with four different registration options: "via phone number", "via one click", "via email" and "via social network". Below we will look at the registration steps in the classic way we are used to, namely "by email".
MELbet registration steps:- To start the registration click on the red REGISTRATION button to the right of the MELbet login button and from the 4 available methods select "via e-mail".
Here we will only mention that if you have decided to register through a social network, it is important to know that at this stage the platform only supports registrations through the Russian social networks "VKontakte" and "Classmates", which are not so popular.
What bonuses and promotions can we expect from MELbet?
One of the pleasant qualities of Eastern European bookmakers is that they offer extremely attractive bonuses for new players. The situation with MELbet is no different, but let's look at their proposals in detail..
100% up to 90 euros. first deposit bonus for sports bets
You can use this bonus as a new member by making a minimum deposit of 1.5 euros in your account on the first deposit. Of course, we recommend serious players to deposit the maximum amount to take advantage of the full bonus. To withdraw the amount from the bonus, we must roll it 5 times on bets of the straight column type with at least 3 events with odds of not less than 1.4 each.
MELbet casino bonus package up to € 1750 and 290 free spins
If you are a fan of casino games and love adrenaline, then this bonus package is just for you. The MELbet Casino Bonus is divided into 5 parts of 5 consecutive deposits:- First deposit 50% up to € 350 + 30 free spins / slots
To qualify for the bonus you need to make your first deposit of at least € 10 after registration. The bonus must be wagered 40 times within 7 days. The amount of the bet you can use during the clearing is limited to € 5. Also note that the following games are not involved in clearing the bonus: Pachinko, MS Dice, MS Roulette, MS Pokerlight, Lucky Wheel, Apple of Fortune, Dragon Gold, Kamikaze, Battle City, Witch, Greyhound Racing, Monkeys, African Roulette, Crown & Anchor, Pipeline. Of course, it is good to check this on the bookmaker's website, as it is subject to frequent updates.
Great loyalty program for regular players
Like other bookmakers, MELbet does its best to keep its regular players. To this end, they offer the so-called "Loyalty Program" through which with each bet you accumulate loyalty points that can be turned into real money. In addition to the above, there are other interesting promotions on the MELbet website (battery of the day, free bets, various tournaments where you can get valuable cash prizes, etc.). MELbet has also taken care of every birthday with an account older than 30 days and deposited at least € 100 to receive 20 free spins as a gift.
A few words about the markets
MELbet is where you can find betting options that are not available elsewhere. Even for a hockey game or badminton there are over 10 betting markets, even handicap betting options! Of course, the main focus is on football, and the abundance is huge, both in terms of live betting and classic betting. Even for less popular football events, there are over 1000 betting options! Fortunately, the markets are categorized, which makes it much easier to find exactly what you are looking for.
In terms of odds, we would say that they go from average for the market to good, but of course, it all depends on the event that interests us.
A wide range of sports
MELbet have raised the bar quite high. Every day on the site you can bet on over 50 sports. In addition to popular sports (football, tennis, hockey, handball, volleyball, water polo) you can bet on Celtic football, streetball, squash, kabadi and even extreme things like windsurfing, political events, TV games or the weather.
MELbet betslip and how to place a bet
Making a bet at MELbet is like child's play, and this is due to the simple and quite well-functioning slip. Just one click on the odds on the selected market and our selection is immediately displayed on the bet slip on the right side of the page. There is also a function for pre-withdrawal of money from the bet (also called cashout), but only for certain sporting events.
Live betting and live sports events at MELbet
The site offers live betting opportunities for almost all sports. From the most prestigious European cups and world events to Indonesian football matches from Division 3. The range of markets is also extremely wide. It is important to note that with the live bet option, the odds are dynamic and change constantly based on the development of the event.
There is also the Multi-LIVE option, through which you can bet live on 4 events at the same time. In addition to live betting, MELbet also offers an amazing number of matches and sporting events that you can watch live with very good quality broadcasts.
Deposit and repayment methods available
At this stage, MELbet offers its customers about 60 methods of deposit and withdrawal, half of which are cryptocurrencies. MELbet does not charge additional fees for financial transactions, and the deposit / repayment terms are different for different methods.
Funds deposit options- Visa and Mastersard - min. Deposit amount $ / € 1 per transaction, no commission;
Withdrawal options- Visa, Mastercard - min. Withdrawal amount $ / € 1.50 per transaction, no commission, term - up to 7 days;
As in any review, here we will not forget to remind you to deposit money through a method that is supported and to withdraw funds to avoid possible problems.
Optimized mobile site and mobile applications
MELbet provides its users with mobile solutions that fully meet today's requirements. The operator interface is available for mobile devices through an optimized mobile version of the site and mobile applications.
The iOS version can be downloaded from the App Store, while the Android version can be downloaded directly from the MELbet website.
It is important to mention that the developed mobile application is only for sports betting, and through the mobile version of the website you can take advantage of the full range of services offered by the operator (sports betting, casino, live casino, etc.)
Security - via SSL encryption
Unfortunately, the operator shares little information with site visitors about what exactly it does to protect the personal information and financial transactions of its users. All we've learned is that MELbet uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology on its platform to maximize customer data protection.
Quality of customer service
There are several ways to contact customer support, the most convenient being live chat. Operators respond competently within minutes. If you have any special questions, you can choose the most appropriate email address for this purpose by clicking on the "Contact Us" menu item on the website, depending on the nature of the problem. Of course, the operator also offers telephone support as well as a contact form.
MELbet can be a great choice for anyone looking for a wide range of sports and markets. MELbet sports betting and casino bonuses are very good compared to the market averages. As a minus, we take into account the fact that the bookmaker does not currently cooperate with external, independent control bodies and has only one license issued by Curacao.
