If you talk about the big betting providers on the market, you can’t avoid a name – Betclic. The bookmaker company was founded by Frenchman Nicolas Beraud in 2005 in London as a one-man company. Today Betclic is a big player in the scene. Seriousness has long been out of the question in the Betclic test. However, security and integrity are only a relevant point. What services can the bookmaker offer in day-to-day business? Logically, there have been numerous changes and adjustments in recent years. We have taken a look behind the scenes for you in the detailed report. We have examined the betting offer, the odds, the sports betting tax, the welcome bonus, the sports betting apps as well as the deposits and withdrawals.
In advance, based on our Betclic experience, it can already be said that the betting provider is no longer just a clear mainstream provider. In the early days, the bookmaker had a rather limited range of bets on the screen. All relevant sports can now be found in the overall offer. Another advantage of Betclic is that the winnings are paid out quickly and reliably.
Betting offer – Around 30 disciplines available per day
According to our Betclic experience, the range of bets settles in the daily average of around 30 sports , with seasonal fluctuations being understood. Football betting is at the top of the Betclic betting program . The round leather is completely and flawlessly represented. The game selection extends across the entire globe, with a special focus of course on the local leagues. The champions and the Europa League are at the top, followed by the highest ticket officesin France, England, Spain, Germany and Italy. It is positive that the youth and amateur leagues are not neglected. If you want to prove your football expertise in the semi-professional field, you have the opportunity at Betclic.
Behind the king football, the usual suspects follow in the list of top disciplines , namely tennis, ice hockey and basketball. In white sports, the Grand Slam tournaments are logically at the top, followed by comparisons on the ATP and WTA tours. The encounters between the ITF Future and Challenger series are more for tennis specialists. The ice hockey and basketball sections are led by the American professional leagues, specifically by the NHL and the NBA . The top European leagues are of course not neglected. Other important disciplines at Betclic include baseball, handball, volleyball, motorsport with Formula 1 at the top, martial arts like boxing and MMA, American football and rugby.
According to our Betclic experience, users who prefer the frame sports will find what they are looking for in futsal, sailing, speedway, bandy or floorball. The e-sports offers also play a very important role , with the League of Legends and Counter Strike at the top. Betclic sports betting is rounded off by a number of offers from TV entertainment and society.
The bookmaker is perfectly positioned in the depth of the betting options. In addition to the main markets, there are additional side areas in all sports and leagues, although the number of possible uses fluctuates somewhat. In the most important football competitions – for example in the Bundesliga – Betclic comes to well over 200 markets per game. The portfolio ranges from the exact result and the goals over / under versions to draw no bet tips and the double chance to the European and Asian handicaps. Most betting markets are also offered as a half-time / final score version.
Live betting: More than average in width and depth
In our experience, Betclic then goes a step further with live betting. The online provider impressively outperforms a large number of its competitors in real time. The sports and the choice of options for live betting are more than average . The main sports are logically at the top, i.e. football, ice hockey, tennis and basketball. It goes “in play” down to the semi-professional area. In football in particular, Betclic relies on numerous U19 games from Asia, Australia and South America. Table tennis, badminton, futsal or beach volleyball also provide additional betting variety. Even on the e-sport events I can be bet in real time.
The design of the live center is also positive . On the home page, the current games are shown in box menus, sorted by discipline. If you choose a single view to view all odds, you will not lose sight of the remaining matches, as these are then automatically arranged on the left edge of the screen.
Betting bonus: 100% up to 50 euros for the first deposit
The new customers deposit with a 100% Betclic bonus of up to 50 euros. In our experience, the minimum deposit is ten euros. It starts with a betting credit of 20 euros. If you want to secure the complete Betclic betting bonus, make a deposit of 50 euros, get 50 euros and then play with a starting capital of 100 euros. A classic Betclic Bonus Code is not required for the activation. However, it is important that the first deposit cannot be made with the e-wallets from Skrill and Neteller or with the Paysafecard.
The wagering requirements are that the starting capital – that is, the deposit and the bonus amount – are playing through 14 times, respectively, to reach the payout stage. Customers who have secured the maximum new customer premium must therefore present a rollover of 1,400 euros before a withdrawal is possible. Only three-way bets with a minimum odds of 1.6 are valid. The sales targets are to be processed within 14 days. The Betclic Bonus applies only to new customers residing.
Regular customers are not neglected in terms of bonuses either, on the contrary. Betclic primarily relies on cash-back offers as well as odds and profit boosts. If you call up the promotional page at regular intervals, you will always find one or the other new promo code.
Betting odds: Betclic plays in the Champions League
There is a top grade in the Betclic test for the betting odds. The French online provider is involved in the odds comparison in the Champions League . Not infrequently, Betclic can even offer the best betting offer on the market. There is often a slight trend towards favorites. For example, if you mainly put your football tips on teams like FC Bayern Munich, Paris St. Germain or FC Barcelona, you are in very good hands. The stability of the betting offers is also given. The fluctuations shortly before the start of the game are minimal.
The average quota key levels itself at over 94 percent. But when it comes to sporting highlights, for example in the most important football leagues or tennis grand slam tournaments, things go even higher. In the Premier League and the Bundesliga, Betclic consistently works with the betting odds keys of over 96 percent. A slight decrease in the values can be seen in the frame area, although the French always stay well above the important 90% line, even live.
Deposits and withdrawals: The most important payment methods available at the checkout
There are no major surprises in the payment sector. Betclic has the most important payment methods on the screen. All deposits and withdrawals are processed free of charge. Credit cards from Visa and MasterCard, including all debit cards with the same label, are of course recognized at the checkout. Bank transfers can be carried out in real time with the direct booking systems from Klarna Sofort, Trustly and GiroPay. The prepaid codes of the Paysafecard are very suitable for smaller deposits. Those who prefer e-wallets can choose between Skrill and Neteller.
Winnings have always been paid out quickly and reliably. There are no negative Betclic customer reviews. Internally, the French need a maximum of 48 hours to get the funds on the way. It is often even faster. If technically possible, the payment will be made using the payment method. Withdrawals are only possible in favor of your own accounts, regardless of the transfer route. Before the first withdrawal, each user must also successfully complete the mandatory identity check.
Website and app
Anyone who accesses the betting portal for the first time will certainly face a small difficulty. The list of disciplines can be called up in the head menu using a folding bar. The layout is not particularly elegant at this point. But there is a trick. Click on the small button ” Calendar ” in the top left . You will then be guided to the usual sports betting design with a clear list of disciplines on the left edge of the image. The submenus then go on to countries, competitions and leagues. The submission of tips is self-explanatory with just a few clicks.
Visually, the provider mainly relies on the colors red, gray and white. The picture and advertising menus provide additional effects. According to our Betclic experience, the website as a whole is not a highlight, but can offer the essential functionality.
The identical rating can be transferred to the Betclic app . On the go, customers have access to the entire betting offer and all relevant administrative functions. Cash-out offers can be carried out at the touch of a screen, deposits and withdrawals can be made effortlessly. Technically, Betclic primarily relies on responsive homepage execution in HTML5 format. The mobile website can only be selected in the browser and then automatically adapts to any new smartphone or tablet. There is also a native Betclic app for iPhone and iPad that can be downloaded from the Apple Store.
We see customer service somewhat critically in the Betclic test. The betting provider relies exclusively on email support for the contact options . A live chat (only in English-speaking employees) and a telephone hotline are not available. At this point, however, it can be positively countered that the inquiries are answered quickly, in USA and in a helpful manner.
It can be seen that the sports betting provider tries to intercept the service on the website. Betclic works with a complete help center, which is divided into different sections. In the FAQ menu, users can switch between the following sections:
- My account
- My bets
The dictionary, in which the online provider conveys the most important terminology of sports betting in detail, is also useful.
Sports betting is the flagship of Betclic. However, the French are now successfully involved in all types of gaming. In the online casino, users have over 1,500 games on the screen, with the clear focus on the slots. Over 1,400 slot machines ensure a rich selection from A to Z. The game list is led by the best progressive jackpots, such as the Mega Moolah and the Mega Fortune. The fans of table and card games are of course not neglected either. Betclic works together with Microgaming, NetEnt, Pragmatic Play, Gamomat or Play´n Go in the software area. The live casino is streamed by the market leader Evolution Gaming, which is represented with its complete portfolio.
If you want to gamble properly, in the truest sense of the word, you can also switch to the connected poker arena, which is connected to Playtech’s top-class iPoker network. You can choose from Texas Holdem, Omaha, 7 Card and 3 Card Poker.
