PariPesa is licensed by Curacao, which means they do hold a valid gambling license, but it is not the best or most reputable one. Indeed, the control mechanisms by Curacao eGaming seem lax at best, which is always worrisome.
This means PariPesa must be judged solely on its own merits. And whilst we’ve seen many reviews from similar sites such as ours, we’ve not seen any conclusive player comments that would sway us one way or another.
Some of the terms and conditions we’ve found at PariPesa seem very strict and put players and punters at a disadvantage. This is not unusual with relatively new betting sites. Usually, when players adhere to all rules and regulations, depositing only a little money and requesting smaller withdrawals, they tend to be on the safe side.
Nothing suggests that PariPesa is untrustworthy, however, which means we can recommend that you proceed with caution. They seem certainly safe to check out if you like what they have to offer.
Cricket betting and other sports
At the time of our review, the world was still in the grip of the global Covid-19 pandemic, which means in many places fewer sports were played. We did find a very solid selection of cricket events for punters to bet on and plenty of available betting options.
Customers at PariPesa are able to bet on the following events:
- Pakistan Super League
- Twenty20 Blast
- England v New Zealand test matches
- India v England test matches
- 3rd ODI
- Vincy Premier League T10
- European Series T10
- The Hundred 2021
Depending on the event, anything between a handful to several hundred betting markets are available to bet on. So, smaller, local matches may not be very well covered in terms of betting options, but big international leagues are a cricket punter’s dream come true.
Beyond cricket betting, several dozen other sports and special events are available to bet on. There is, of course, football, tennis and horse racing, but also e-Sports, politics, squash, motor sports or even Kabaddi. The selection is vast and shows that PariPesa is working with an experienced provider here.
The odds are competitive as well, making PariPesa’s sportsbook a solid option for many bettors, experienced or not.
Games and more
PariPesa provides online casino games from well over a hundred providers. Many of them are smaller studios you never have heard of before. But there are also games from the likes of Microgaming, ELK Studios, Thunderkick, BetSoft, BigTimeGaming, Pragmatic Play, Just for the Win and many others.
If you are looking for the games from a particular provider, you can easily apply a filter, which is a useful option to have.
Slots aside, there is also a vast live casino, which supplies games not just from Evolution Gaming or Ezugi but also Pragmatic Play, Vivo Gaming and others. Players from India will particularly appreciate the ability to play Andar Bahar and Teen Patti live.
PariPesa also covers TV games, virtual sports, bingo, poker and a wide selection of other games to choose from.
Anyone looking for an online casino with tons of different games to choose from will not know what to do with themselves at PariPesa. The choice is almost overwhelming.
Promotions and bonuses
New players at PariPesa can choose one of several welcome offers. You can grab a casino welcome bonus or a sports welcome bonus.
There is a 100% match bonus available for sportsbook customers, which needs to be wagered 5x on accumulator bets with odds of 1.4 or higher. Customers have 30 days to complete wagering.
A welcome bonus for casino players additionally includes 150 free spins. This one needs to be wagered 35x within 7 days, which is difficult to achieve if you claim the full bonus amount.
Welcome bonuses aside, regular customers can claim a number of casino or sportsbook bonuses with different terms for each bonus. There are accumulator bonuses as well as bet insurances available.
At PariPesa, customers can also collect bonus points when they bet or play, which can then be exchanged for promo codes. These promo codes then give players free bets for specific games or sports to bet on. It’s an interesting incentive program, which offers something for everyone.
This is a bit of a strange one. When you click the little $ icon in the top left-hand corner of the homepage (or click on the ‘Payments’ link at the bottom), you’ll be redirected to the payments page, where you can select your country and see all available payment methods.
When we tried this, we only saw four cryptocurrencies as available for deposits and one for withdrawals. Bitcoin was not one of them.
In the terms and conditions no further options were mentioned and information about deposits or withdrawals were overall quite sparse.
Only in the ‘About us’ section of the betting site did they mention several other payment options, including WebMoney and Qiwi. There is also an option to top up your account at PariPesa betting shops, if one is available near you.
Overall, the information about banking at PariPesa is rather limited and you may want to contact customer service for further information.
PariPesa offers 24/7 customer support that is available via live chat or email. When the live chat is available, you’ll see the live chat window with a green arrow and an ‘on-line’ tag. Should it be ‘off-line’ for some reason, you would be able to write and email instead.
The customer service seems friendly and helpful, though you may not always find them useful or particularly knowledgeable.
There is a ton of information available on the website, though that means a lot of advance research. We would have liked to see an easily accessible FAQ or help centre but couldn’t find one.
If you’ve ever used 1xBet, you will get a strong sense of déjà vu when launching the PariPesa homepage. The layout is almost exactly the same as it the functionality of the website. This means, we have exactly the same complaints about PariPesa’s software as we did about 1xBet.
The site is overloaded with links and information. There is just so much going on that you don’t know where to start. If you have prior experience with other sportsbooks or casinos, you’ll find your way around. But if you do not, you are going to be overwhelmed and confused. It really can be too much, though you can change a few settings to make the sportsbook suitable to your needs, which helps.
You are also welcome to use the mobile page, which is tidier and easier to navigate. The mobile page is definitely a more pleasant option. You can even use the mobile version on your desktop site, which immediately changes the layout to a more manageable design.
Mobile apps are not available.
PariPesa has a lot to offer and holds up in direct comparison with 1xBet for instance. There are tons of sports to bet on, including a very good selection of cricket matches. You’ll find competitive odds here, can claim a variety of bonuses and promotions and get to peruse a vast library of online casino games.
It’s easy to recommend PariPesa for sheer variety.
That said whether they are truly great or even completely trustworthy remains to be seen. You can try them out and test them thoroughly without much danger of losing a lot of money as long as you keep things manageable and make only small deposits and withdrawals.
It is certainly worth it to test PariPesa in all aspects before committing to them as your go-to bookmaker and online casino. As long as you do so carefully, we don’t see a problem here. Do make sure to check on their deposit and withdrawal option prior to signing up, though!
