As a brand-new online casino and sports betting site, there’s little to say about the trustworthiness of this operation. They have not yet established any sort of reputation yet. It also doesn’t help that we couldn’t really find any other reviews of them online.
As such, we must also consider this a smaller business, which means if you do start betting here, you should definitely keep your deposits and bets smaller in the beginning as well as make some careful withdrawals here and there.
The betting site is providing us some information about their business, which does help with providing so assurance and establishing trustworthiness. Their license from Curacao, which is the standard for betting sites such as this one, is not the best out there, but at least it provides us with a framework.
Bollybet will have to prove itself first and in time, we expect to see more reviews from other sites such as ours as well as actual player reviews. We shall evaluate then just how trustworthy and secure Bollybet is.
Cricket betting and other sports
When launching the sportsbook, you will see all live betting options before anything else. Cricket is likely to top the list here as it is featured first in line. As the most popular sport in India, this is hardly surprising.
At the time of our review, there were live betting options for the following events:
- T20 Series International
- Sheffield Shield Australia
- County Championship (England)
- ECS Italy
- Big Bash League SRL
- Zimbabwe Domestic Twenty20
This is quite an eclectic selection, indicating that Bollybet offers a wide variety of cricket betting on most days where games are played anywhere in the world.
Depending on the match, you’ll get a handful or several dozen betting options, which include:
- First Innings bets
- Most Sixes
- Super over
And much more. Of course, the more advanced a game is the fewer betting options remain available. Still, this is definitely interesting for most cricket bettors. What we found lacking, however, a pre-match bets for future events.
The appears to be a strong focus on live bets for all sports that are covered at Bollybet, which includes soccer, tennis, basketball, Aussie rules, badminton, beach volleyball, darts, futsal and a few more. This is a decent selection of sports, but filtering for matches or leagues can be tedious.
Basically, Bollybet lists all the current matches that are live available for betting and then you can filter for upcoming matches, filtering either for later today, tomorrow or further down the line.
You wouldn’t be able to filter according to league or country, however. This makes finding your match increasingly difficult and there is also no option to filter for events taking place in a few days, never mind weeks or months into the future.
If it is live betting you are after, Bollybet sure has a lot to offer, however.
Games and more
Bollybet prides itself on its comprehensive casino offering. You’ll be able to play a good range of slots and table games from well-known and trusted casino game providers such as Quickspin, Yggdrasil, Thunderkick and many others.
Bollywood offers a filter option for “Top Indian Games”, once more putting the focus on Indian customers.
Big jackpot games are unfortunately missing from the portfolio, which is often case with online casinos with a license from Curacao.
Additionally, you’ll find virtual games, bingo and video poker as well as a solid selection of live casino games. Of course, this includes Teen Patti and Andar Bahar as well.
Overall, the online and live casino at Bollybet is quite good.
Promotions and bonuses
New customers at Bollybet can claim either the casino welcome bonus or the sports welcome bonus. Both offer a match deposit bonus of up to INR 50,000.
This 100% deposit bonus can be used for the sportsbook or the casino. Whichever one you prefer, there are wagering requirements to consider, which depend on the bonus amount you claim.
The sports bonus wagering looks like this:
Up to 10,000
15X (Bets on odds 1.5 and above)
Up to 20,000
20X (Bets on odds 1.5 and above)
Up to 50,000
25X (Bets on odds 1.5 and above)
The bonus is valid for 15 days and the maximum withdrawal of the bonus funds winnings is 1x the amount of the bonus claimed. So, if you deposited INR 20,000, received INR 20,000 on top of that and completed all wagering requirements, you are then able to withdraw up to INR 20,000.
Any winnings beyond that will be removed.
The casino welcome bonus and wagering requirements look very similar, except for the sports betting odds involved.
Whilst the overall bonus amount is pretty decent, the conditions are also quite strict and there is little time to complete the wagering requirements. Considering that this is still a very new online casino, this is not surprising, however.
Beyond that, there are no further promotions or bonuses available at this time. Again, this could very well be due to the fact that this is a very new bookmaker, and they are just trying to figure out what their players might want. So, hopefully we’ll see more here in the future.
Whilst there is no separate page for the banking options at Bollybet, you are able to find some information on how to make deposits and withdrawals here.
As an online casino firmly geared towards customers from India, popular payment methods in India are available for deposits and withdrawals. This includes:
- Net Banking
This is great and means there is a convenient deposit option for just about anyone.
Now, keep in mind that you will have to through the KYC process sooner rather than later, so be sure to get that sorted before making your first withdrawal request.
And whilst the terms and conditions on the site don’t specify withdrawal limits, they may very well be there because this is a small and new casino, which may not be able to pay out big wins just yet.
If you have questions regarding withdrawal limits or anything else around Bollybet, the betting offers or the casino, you can reach the customer support team via live chat or email. The team is apparently available 24/7, which is great for a small betting site such as this one.
Live chat is even available when you have not signed up for an account yet, which we appreciate.
There’s a lot of a dark pink and purple going on here. The way the colours fade into one another in different areas can be somewhat irritating for the eye. Whether you like this colour scheme is a matter of taste, of course, but it wasn’t exactly our preference. Whilst it looks friendly, it doesn’t feel super professional.
Then again, Bollywood is more geared towards casual gamblers and they do specifically say that they want to appeal to younger players with their design. Make of this what you will.
In any case, the layout is intuitive and simple enough, which makes navigation easy. It sometimes does take a moment for a page to load, which was not great.
The same is true for their mobile page, which is available via all mobile browsers. There’s just always a bit of a lag in loading. Otherwise, the page does work well on mobile, and the site is fully compatible.
There are no dedicated apps for sports betting or casino, but they are not really necessary anyway.
Well, Bollybet is still very new, but their sports betting is interesting, especially since they mostly seem to focus on live betting. If that’s what you’re after, you are likely going to have a lot of fun here, though the filters could use some more options as you will find yourself scrolling through the various lists for current and upcoming events.
The casino is a nice addition for some fun distractions and the live table options are also solid.
Bollybet seems to be a work in progress and there is a lot of potential to expand on the current offering and improve some aspects around their site. Being as new as they are, they may be of interest for some of you, however, but do make sure to test them thoroughly before committing more money to their business.
