On that note, it is also difficult to assess just how trustworthy this venture is as there is also no information to be found about TitanCraft, who are presumably behind LionBet.io. There is no address for the company anywhere on the site or any relevant details one might want to know.
The betting site displays the Curacao eGaming logo, where they are presumably licensed. But they do not give us their license number, nor do they link through the logo to their license, which is common practice on betting sites.
That said, SNK Entertainment N.V. has a website, where they do provide their address and licensing number. They also operate Betdaily, a well-regarded bookmaker that also caters to players from India.
Where does that leave us with LionBet.io?
As a brand-new bookmaker, they have yet to establish a reputation and thus we can’t say much about their trustworthiness. If they are indeed operated by SNK Entertainment N.V. and affiliated with Betdaily, there is reason for optimism, though.
If you want to try LionBet.io for yourself, you should start small with your deposits, betting and withdrawals.
Cricket betting and other sports
Unfortunately, LionBet.io doesn’t provide access to their sportsbook unless you open an account. That is extremely inconvenient as a new customer, who would prefer to check out sports, markets and betting options.
So, we need to gather what information is available about their cricket betting and further sports betting from around the site.
It is clear that they place a strong focus on cricket betting here. Most images around the sportsbook show a cricket player and the help section features sections about cricket, basketball, esports, soccer and tennis in particular. Though horse racing and other sports are mentioned in the terms and conditions as well.
Indeed, on their homepage it would appear as if you get access to two different sportsbooks as well as a betting exchange when you have an account here. That should provide plenty of betting opportunities on not just cricket but a host of other sports as well.
According to the website you get:
“The highest odds in the industry, covering events from all over the world, with multiple guesses such as handicap, size, half-time, correct odds, total goals, and series of passes. There are also animated live broadcasts and video live broadcasts, allowing you to easily experience chat betting and enjoy it.”
That certainly sounds promising!
Also, if you click on “Live”, which is the first link in the main menu, you are seeing whatever cricket match is currently played live. It is great to know that live streaming is available.
Games and more
The casino section is a little more accessible, though the LionBet.io online casino is not big. They work with a few online casino game providers such as Playtech and Microgaming, providing a range of popular slot, table games, video poker and scratch cards.
Whilst there is a section for jackpot games, no games are listed here. We also couldn’t find any big jackpots when browsing through their games. Perhaps it is a matter of not having full access without an account, but it may also be due to the Curacao license as many online casinos under that license tend to have none of the larger jackpots available.
The live casino looks well-equipped and offers games from several providers. You’ll even be able to play rummy and teen patti at LionBet.io, which should please fans.
A poker room is also offered here, which is apparently part of one of the largest poker networks in the world, though it is unclear which one that is.
Promotions and bonuses
LionBet.io offers two welcome bonuses, which you can both claim by what we can tell. The first bonus is a no deposit sign-up offer for a free bet worth INR 200. Simply sign up, login to your account and check your available bonuses. There will be a free bet worth INR 200, which you can claim right away.
The turnover requirements for this free bet are only 3x and there are only a few restrictions listed in the bonus terms, which is excellent news.
There is a first deposit offer as well, which would give new customers 150% on their first deposit and up to INR 15,000. Here the turnover requirement is 15x the bonus amount, which is also very generous. Again, there are few restrictions mentioned in the bonus terms. It almost seems too good to be true, so be sure to double check and perhaps don’t claim the full amount.
Beyond those two offers, customers at LionBet.io will also benefit from a Refer a Friend offer, a bonus for downloading the app, a cricket master challenge that is currently running and a daily free bonus of up to INR 2,000.
Additionally, there is a VIP club, which offers various benefits to regular players.
There is no information about how to deposit or withdraw anywhere on the site. When you visit the help section, there is also an FAQ area and even a link for “Banking”, but there is no information about banking listed anywhere. On the homepage, there are also not the usual logos you often find for various payment methods available at the site.
You would need to sign up for an account here and visit the cashier to find out which payment methods are available to you. Interestingly, the terms and conditions do state that you need to email the customer service for further information about deposit and withdrawal options, transaction times and limits as well as applicable fees.
The customer support at LionBet.io is available 24/7 via live chat and email. They have a decent help section, though as mentioned above, some important information is simply not there. No matter how hard you might look.
As such, if you want to know more about the company or their banking methods, you will have to send an email as this is easier than bothering with live chat, which requires you to give them your name and email address before starting a chat. Simply asking a question anonymously is out of the question.
LionBet.io looks professional, with modern features but a most classic look and quite pleasant. We get a white marble background when loading the site. A large banner flits through various available promotions, the main menu offers access to live streaming, sports betting, casino, card games, poker, slots and promotions.
The site is well-organised and easy to navigate. The mobile site is very similar, though obviously a little tighter and cleaner.
An app is also available, which you can only access via the promotion for the app download. You’ll need to do that via your mobile browser, but if it is available for Android and iOS is anyone’s guess. You’ll simply have to try.
It is very difficult to give a good assessment of LionBet.io. We’re missing vital information, which is not available anywhere on the site or online. We also only get limited access to the sportsbook or online casino, which is inconvenient. And contacting customer support for further information requires us to give them a name and email address via live chat, which leaves us no quick option to get more details.
The site looks professionally made and the company behind it, SNK Entertainment N.V. is legitimate and operates at least one other betting site that appears to be in good standing.
Reviewing any new betting site is difficult, but one as new as this one with as few information available is even more so.
Our recommendation? Sign up and opt for their no deposit bonus. It’s only a small bonus, of course, but it allows you to try out some betting and casino games without risking your own money. You can then check everything you may wish to learn about the site and if you don’t like it, you’ve not lost anything.
