This is a difficult one as 4raBet definitely does not enjoy a great reputation online. Some of the reviews we have found online seem to date back a little while, but that doesn’t mean that things have changed for the better.
We have found several sites that claim 4raBet is a scam. Apparently, the betting site makes it possible to make a deposit and place bets, but once you want to withdraw your winnings, it takes a long time for things to be processed and often wins are not even paid out at all.
We’ve also seen complaints about the terms and conditions, which customers could easily violate if they are unaware.
It is difficult to ascertain the validity of these claims, but finding multiple instances is generally not a great sign.
4raBet is licensed in Curacao, which is not our favourite gambling jurisdiction as they are far less strict in enforcing their own rules than many other gambling jurisdictions. So, you may not even get help if you find that you have problems with 4raBet.
On the other hand, 4raBet does provide games from many excellent casino game providers, who never license their games to rogue casinos and ensure that no illegal copies of their games are used at rogue sites.
Assuming that all is well on that end, we cannot simply consider 4raBet a fraudulent bookmaker and be done with it. The evidence is sketchy either way.
What we will recommend is that you read all terms and conditions carefully and contact customer service to answer any remaining question. Your experience here will certainly give you an indication of whether or not you want to proceed to register and account and deposit money here. And if you do end up signing up at 4raBet, be sure to keep your deposits and bets small, adhere to all rules and try a few smaller withdrawals as well.
Cricket betting and other sports
You can find the sportsbook at 4raBet under “Line”, which is the first option in the main menu. You’ll basically find all available line bets in this section.
As cricket is the most popular Indian sport, it is also the first choice in the list of available sports to bet on in the sportsbook. You’ll find the list on your left-hand side and a number indicating how many upcoming games you can bet on.
Then you’ll get to a list with all the games currently available for betting, though don’t be surprised if no odds are displayed soon. Click on the match of your choice to get to the markets and odds available.
Big IPL games will likely have over 150 markets available for you to bet on, including:
- First Innings bets
- Total Fours/Sixes
- Team with highest score at 1st dismissal
- Total Run Outs
- Total Extras
- Which Team Wins Coin Toss
Smaller matches may only give you about a dozen betting options. Bear in mind that more markets may become available once the game is about to start off. Live betting will usually also add a few more markets for you to bet on.
At the time of our review, available events to bet on included:
- Test Series
- European Cricket Series T10
- County Championship England
- Big Bash League SRL
Cricket aside, 4raBet offers quite a wide range of sports to bet on. Besides the usual soccer, tennis, basketball or baseball options, boxing, chess, futsal, darts, formula 1, netball or even curling were available to bet on.
Live betting is also covered here, though don’t expect live streaming, live animations or statistics here.
The odds available at 4raBet are decent, though not always great depending on the sport and game. You will find better odds elsewhere, but if your preference is for 4raBet, you’ll get generally competitive prices.
Games and more
4raBet offers a full online casino, which may not look like much at first, but when you filter according to available providers, you’ll find a massive list of at least 50 online casino game providers here, which is impressive. Among them are such reputable and favoured names like NetEnt, Microgaming, Quickspin, Pragmatic Play, Yggdrasil Gaming and many smaller providers you may never have heard of before.
So, if online casino games are your thing, 4raBet has an excellent range of games to offer. Naturally, this includes not just slots but table games as well.
Furthermore, 4raBet also provides a live casino, where you can find live tables for Andar Bahar and Teen Patti, always welcome at Indian online casinos.
Virtual Games are also available as well as a section for TV Games, which is tagged as ‘new’ on 4raBet.
Overall, if you like to do more than just betting on sports, 4raBet has got you covered.
Promotions and bonuses
This is another section that is a little difficult to write about as there is no separate page for promotions, and we could really only find some information about the welcome bonus.
New players at 4raBet are welcome to sign up and make a fresh deposit to get additional bonus money. The bonus you can claim depends on the amount of money you wish to deposit. At the lower end, you could therefore deposit just INR 300 and receive INR 350, which means you get INR 50 as bonus money.
On the high end you could deposit INR 10,000 at once and receive INR 30,000 to play with. This would mean you get a 200% bonus and INR 20,000 in bonus funds.
The bonus conditions are unfortunately somewhat confusing and not at all extensive. We can say with certainty that bonuses are only available for 7 days, which is not a lot.
And you have to wager the bonus money before you can make a withdrawal request. However, since the bonus conditions are written in very bad English that is also particularly difficult to understand with the examples given, we are unable to give you any further definitive information about the bonus.
You may wish to contact customer service for clarification, which will hopefully give you more information instead of simply a copy of the information already available online.
Beyond this welcome offer, we couldn’t really find any other offers at 4raBet.
Unfortunately, there is no separate banking page that gives us all the information we would usually like to see about available banking options at a betting site. Once you have an account, you may visit the Deposit/Withdrawal section and find the following payment options there:
- Visa and MasterCard
Without an account, you won’t be able to access this section, however. And the FAQs are no more helpful than that.
From what we hear, withdrawals have been problematic for quite a few customers at 4raBet, so tread carefully here. Read the full terms and conditions before signing up at 4raBet. Also be aware that they may have a clause that requires you to wager any given deposit at least once before you are able to make a withdrawal. This is not entirely unusual as many other betting sites have such a clause. But it is a headache regardless.
The terms and conditions don’t really seem to give much information about deposits and withdrawals either but be sure to check everything yourself.
The customer service at 4raBet also doesn’t have a good reputation. Whilst you can reach the team via live chat and email, response times can be slow. It is also unclear whether the live chat is available around the clock or not.
There is now an Indian phone number on the homepage, which you may be able to call for help
The customer service is said to give only short answers that are not always helpful and requests for solutions regarding withdrawals are often ignored. We were unable to verify these claims but wanted to let you know that they are out there.
4raBet offers up a professional-looking betting platform. The sportsbook looks exactly like what you’d expect it to, with a black background and blue and white highlights. It’s well-organised, very easy to use and loads quickly.
Navigation is easy, the layout is intuitive, and the online casino and live casino are well-organised and accessible as well. The site looks good and is functional as well.
This translates well to the small screen of your mobile device, where you can easily access 4raBet as well, enjoying full functionality.
Whilst we have heard that there are supposedly iOS and Android apps as well, they are not mentioned on the 4raBet homepage. If they exist, you can’t download them via the homepage, which is unusual. Even if they don’t exist, you will find the mobile platform satisfactory enough.
Reputation aside, would we recommend 4raBet to Indian customers interested in cricket betting and some online gambling? Not as our first choice. Not even among our top 10 choices. There are undoubtedly much better bookmakers out there that accept Indian players and even specifically cater to customers from India.
4raBet does that as well, but we are not reviewing them to make a recommendation one way or another. There simply are too many excellent betting sites out there that have a fantastic reputation and we’ve reviewed them all for you.
We have taken a look at 4raBet for you to give you an overview of what to expect. We would also caution you before signing up as there have reportedly been issues around withdrawals and account closures. If you wish to place bets with them, feel free to do so, but be sure to check them thoroughly first. If you deposit money here and never get to withdraw it, you are unlikely to get help either.
