Introduction to Big Bet World
When Big Bet World came to the market in 2015 it quickly became one of the most popular sports betting operators on the German market. There are many reasons why this happened, but one of the more important was their success in creating an innovative and user friendly interface, especially for mobile devices.
Besides the usual mobile view, which is using responsive design to recreate the website on mobile devices, they implemented the so called “terminal view”, which is a special type of design, originating from land based betting shops and their standalone terminals. Although terminal view can be used on desktop, it is especially suitable for mobile devices.
All of this made us very excited to hear BigBetWorld announced the launch of their native iPhone and Android apps, as we are very curious if they managed to translate these concepts from desktop to mobile platforms.
If you are not yet familiar with BigBetWorld let us just explain briefly why we like them so much. Besides the already mentioned user interface, they offer very competitive odds and consequently have an above average payout percentage. Couple all this with an attractive welcome bonus for new players and there should be no surprise why we rate them so high.
The big question is, have all these good qualities translated into their app? In our testing we concluded both app versions retained their wide selection of sports and events, user friendly bet slip and intuitive navigation and browsing, all the while managing fast page loads. All in all, quite impressive.
Big Bet World sports betting experience
on all platforms - Desktop, iOS and Android
First let us take a look on how the user interface is designed for desktop computers, from which the mobile version was developed. It is immediately clear designers thought how to incorporate mobile devices into the general design from day one. This is reflected in what Big Bet World calls “mobile view”, which is basically a dedicated mobile version of their original website. It can be accessed from any mobile device with a web browser. Usually mobile views are just scaled down versions of the original website, most likely with adaptive or responsive designs. So if you like how the original site looks, this is the view for you.
There is another option though: terminal view. This view is based on standalone terminals, found in land based betting shops. Big Bet World took the core principles and rebuilt it from the ground up, with the idea of it being used on mobile devices. Design elements such as large icons you can easily press and clever use of colours make it a great experience on all mobile devices we tried. You can use this view on desktop as well, and if you are used to place your bets on terminals, you will feel like home.
And while the terminal view by any definition already provides a great mobile experience, a native app takes it a step further. It has all the advanced features usually found only on desktop versions and is extremely well optimized. In all our testing period we did not have a single problem and all the operations were completed quickly and without any fuss.
Another important point to emphasise is the fact you only need one account to access all platforms, so no separate login info is required. This makes for a seamless transition between different platforms, which in our opinion is crucial if you want your app to have any added value for your players.
Some of the key features of Big Bet World’s multi-platform system:
- Optimized UI for fast browsing and bet placement
- Compatible with most devices and OS versions
- Unified account across all platforms
- All markets, all bets, all offers on all platforms
- Live streaming support included
- Integrated cashier with the latest security features
- Available in English and German languages
Sports betting, casino and live casino
features in Big Bet World
The variety of games you can choose from is frankly quite astounding. There are not many places which offer so many options: sports betting (pre-match and live), virtual sports, casino games, live casino and even football jackpots, which we love if I might add. So no matter what your favourite game is, you will most likely find it here.
First and foremost, BigBetWorld prides itself on having one of the best odds on the market and we have to say this claim is true. In the vast majority of cases the odds they offered were at least close to the best, if not outright best. You will find they offer most sports and you can place your bets pre-match or live.
Even as the matches begin, it is still not too late to place your bets. You can track the results in real-time, with constantly changing odds, depending on the situation. There is even a live video feed for certain matches, but you have to log in to enjoy it. Live betting is very dynamic way of betting, can you catch the right moment to place a winning bet?
If you are not a fan of sports betting, or you need a break, you can always try your luck in one of the many casino games they offer. Slot games, table games, card games, video poker, keno, bingo, you name it, they got it. Games are provided by Octavian and Oryx Gaming and are of a reasonably high quality, with nice graphics and sounds.
For the real casino experience you can try their selection of live games. BigBetWorld partnered with one of the best live casino operators in the world and offers blackjack, baccarat and roulette in many different versions, even with occasional tournaments. The atmosphere is very relaxed, girls are super nice, what more could you want?
Are you in the mood for some fast paced action? Don’t want to wait hours for a new game you can bet on? Virtual sports are the answer you are looking for. Non-stop action can scratch that betting itch. Provided by the world famous Betradar and including video feed, you can rest assures everything is safe and fair.
Somewhat exotic, but incredibly exciting, Football jackpots are in our opinion one of the bright spots. We won’t go into all the details, but in its core it is a simple game of prediction. If you can correctly predict the scores of football matches you can win big, and we mean really big – the Colossus jackpot can be more than 10 million EUR!
Big Bet World welcome bonus –
100 EUR for new players
New players are in for a special treat. You can claim up to 100 EUR welcome bonus on your first deposit. Keep in mind this bonus can be used for sports betting only, no other game is eligible. As the bonus is 100% up to 100 EUR it is probably a good idea to deposit at least as much, just so you can claim it whole. This extra 100 EUR can make all the difference, especially if first few bets do not go your way. And with a low rollover of 3x deposit plus bonus amount (on bets of 2,0 or higher), this is a bonus you actually have a chance of withdrawing. Deposits higher than 100 EUR do not affect the rollover, which is a very fair gesture from Big Bet World.
Claiming the bonus is really as simple as 1-2-3, just create an account, make a deposit and claim the bonus. To claim it, you need to contact their support by clicking on the chat icon and requesting the bonus from them. This process is very quick and painless, the support reacts instantly to your chat request and are in our experience very friendly and helpful.
If you do not want it, just do nothing and play with your deposit. But remember, once you start betting with your first deposit money, the bonus can no longer be issued to your account. Be sure to check their Big Bet Bonus T&C before for any additional details you might be interested in.
Bet more, win more –
up to 80% Superpay bonus on combination bets
One of the more interesting features that make Big Bet World stand out from the competition is their Superpay bonus. Basically the more events you place a bet on, the larger the bonus you get if you win the whole ticket. For instance, if you place a 4-fold combination bet you get a 2% bonus on top of your winnings. This goes all the way up to 20-fold, which nets you an incredible 80% bonus! This almost doubles your win, which is insane. We’ve seen such bonus before, but never so generous. A big thumbs up from us, this kind of promotions are what makes the difference between a good and a great product.
Superpay bonus is added automatically on every winning combination bet with 4 or more selections. The only catch is that odds on any selection of the bet slip must be 1,20 or higher and the combined odds must be 5,00 or higher. This is a reasonable limitation in our opinion, as it is necessary to prevent bonus abuse.
Big Bet World cashier – easy deposits and fast withdrawals
Everything concerning deposits or withdrawals is done using the integrated cashier. It literary could not be simpler, you press the wallet icon in the upper right corner and select either deposit or withdrawal to enter the cashier. You can make your deposit using one of the following methods: credit card, Sofort, Skrill, Neteller, Paysafe or bank transfer. Minimum deposit is 10 EUR for all methods except bank transfer, where the minimum is 50 EUR. Withdrawals are made either on the credit card used for deposit or wire transfer.
Customer support – almost instant help in case of issues
There is an extensive help section in the app itself, where you will find the answers to most common question and an explanations of various betting terms. But if you need a specific question answered quickly, there are other channels you can pursue. You can call them directly on their toll free (for Germany) telephone number or you can start a live chat on their website. On both these channels they are available 24/7 in German and English languages. Of course you can also just write them an email, which they usually answer very quickly.
