Rather than come up with one or two reasons why you should play at Betsson I can come up with exactly 11,736,375! As on the 24th sept 2011 this casino broke the WORLD RECORD for the biggest amount ever won on a slot machine for a total of €11,736,375 this was on the Mega Fortune Netent slot, granted this could have happened on any of the NetEnt casinos carrying the game, but if you are one of those people that believe a casino can be lucky then that’s a pretty good reason to play here.
Betsson is an ‘All in one’ gambling site, offering casino games, poker and sports betting. It is a Swedish company more aimed towards the Nordic market but they take players from all over the world.
The casino bonus at Betsson is a 100% match up to £100 (you can chose either a sports OR casino bonus) the wagering requirements is a pretty reasonable 35x the bonus with slots contributing 100% and table games substantially less.
Alternatively players can get a £25 sportsbook bonus on a £25 deposit but it does come with a hefty 10x WR which is rather a lot for sports bets (minimum odds of 1.5)
Poker players can claim up to $1,000 in bonuses which, as a standard poker bonus, needs to be unlocked in chunks as you start raking money by playing cash or tournaments. When you signup you can enter a bonus code to chose either €100, €300 or €1,000 once claimed it will be released in stages once you hit certain wagering targets. i.e. to unlock the €1,000 bonus you need to rake about €5,000. For some players this is achievable but for most recreational players I advise you going for the €100 bonus released in €25 chunks.
Aside from NetEnt collection, Betsson have a great collection of other vendors including Microgaming, Ash, Playtech, Partygaming, Crypto, Evolution and a few others. They have over 1,000 different slot games in their ‘games’ section, the ‘casino’ section seems to be mainly dedicated to NetEnt games. Jackpot hunters will be at home here as it seems every Netent jackpot that is won is at a Betsson casino (or part of their group) by a Nordic player. Infact they have a jackpots page on their site which lists all their jackpot winners, let’s just say it’s quite extensive! The reason so many jackpots hit at this casino is simply because these sort of games are mainly played by players from Nordic countries where they are a dominant force, players know they will have no problem getting paid by Betsson as they are a solid company with a great rep!
Betsson is a very professional operation, they have a huge amount of players (around 420,000 active) which is more than Unibet for example! Betsson was first established way back in the 1960s Sweden and over the years have bought out several other operations including Betsafe. They’ve also had interests in Netent.
Asides from the usual casino and poker games they offer the usual range of gambling site ‘addons’ include the live casino which is ideal for high rollers with Roulette limits of up to £25,000 and blackjack hand limits of £5,000
