Betsafe Casino is the part of Betsafe.com that is dedicated to casino players, but at the same time this site can meet pretty much any type of gambling needs you might have. There are Sportsbook, In-Play, Horse Racing, Live Casino, Poker and even Virtual Sports to be found on the same site, but our focus will be on the Casino and the games available there.
With that being said, this is clearly not a tiny casino, but one of the big brands and they have their stuff together. 450,000+ players are already members on this huge casino, and thanks to the quality of their work more are joining all the time, so you’re in good company. With an established date going back to 2006, this is one of the older casinos.
The company that runs Betsafe.com is called BML Group Ltd, and it’s based in Malta. The local gaming license is used for most players, while those based in UK have the local gaming license to cover them. Both are highly reputable jurisdictions.
Betsafe.com is available in 10 languages, starting with English and continuing with Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, German, Latvian, Polish, Spanish, Estonian and Lithuanian.
Restricted countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Greece, Hungary, Hong Kong, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, Tunisia, United States and its dependencies, military bases and territories including but not limited to Am. Samoa, Guam, Marshall Islands, N. Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and Virgin Islands.
As you will read in the rest of this review, they are doing things right in a lot of areas, from the huge number of games that they offer, to the variety of the gaming experience available, their customer support and the way they approach the player’s money (the banking options).
+ modern design
+ website is easy to use, with clear game categories displayed at all times,
+ online for 12+ years already, an established brand
+ a ton of other gambling options (sports betting, poker, live casino, etc),
+ available in 10 languages
– A lot of countries will not get access to this casino.
Games & Software
It’s not the casino with the biggest number of casino games, but it’s not too far off. Featuring titles from multiple very well known companies, they have about 1400+ on the site right now, with over 1100 of those being classic and video slots. The other categories are also well represented, with dozens of table games, video poker, blackjack and roulette. You don’t need to install their software, everything is available online in your browser.
Mobile players have the dedicated Betsafe app, both for Android and iOS.
Developers: Microgaming, Evolution Gaming, NetEnt, Ongame, Play’n GO, Pragmatic Play, Thunderkick, Foxium, Red Tiger Gaming.
Major categories: Video Slots (1091), Roulette (12), Jackpot (115), Table Games (49), Classic Slots (33), Blackjack (16), Video Poker (14) and Live Casino (113).
By far, the biggest category they have, with about 80% of their content belonging to it. Most of the developers that I’ve listed above will contribute to this category, the only one that doesn’t being Evolution Gaming.
When it comes to high quality games, a huge array of stories and themes, different types of graphics or jackpots, you get a little bit of everything inside.
You can expect to have access to a lot of casino games as well, not just slot machines. It’s an area where a lot of casinos are found lacking, but it’s not the case with Betsafe. You have four dozen table games, a dozen roulette variants, over a dozen blackjack games and the same for video poker. Easily 100+ games in total, to check out if you’re tired of slot machines.
Evolution Gaming is the main provider of this particular category, and there are 113 tables available as of right now. The company is considered the leader of this space, so it’s great to have access to their content. They have innovative titles (Dream Catcher), along with classic titles of Roulette, Baccarat, Poker and more. Don’t miss out on the VIP tables either, those can be a lot of fun.
+ 1100+ classic and video slots, with 97% being in the latter category,
+ 10 different developers, both large and small,
+ you get all the themes and special features you could want,
+ live dealer games are very well represented
– you can’t filter games based on the provider
115 progressive jackpots are listed in their very own category, one of the most popular areas of this site. The most popular progressives are going to come from Microgaming, but they’re not the only contributors to the category.
The most important progressive jackpots, all of them offering over $1 million, are the likes of Hall of Gods, Mega Moolah and Mega Fortune. As I said though, the category has over 100 games and many of these can make you a millionaire.
Verdict: with multiple games that have huge potential, and 115 slots in total, there is no shortage of great content to play through as you’re trying the limits of your luck. Microgaming is represented, along with others, so this part can only be a plus.

+ good welcome package, but it’s not going to be offered to all players, only from some countries,
+ some interesting ongoing promotions, which change every couple of weeks or monthly
– I would’ve wanted to see more daily promotions.

Licensing & Security
The two major gaming jurisdictions on which Betsafe’s operations are relying are those from Malta and United Kingdom. These are both EU based jurisdictions and the company is in Malta, so the very strict rules of this region apply. You are perfectly safe playing at Betsafe, particularly since they’ve proven time and time again for over a decade that they’re trustworthy.
+ highly respected gaming licenses
+ encrypted site
Quality of Support
This is one of the areas where Betsafe shines. Few casinos manage to do as good a job when it comes to customer support as Betsafe. To give you an example, the estimated time for customer support to reply is 30 seconds for those using Live Chat, up to an hour for email and 15 to 60 minutes for those asking for a call back.
They also have a well organized Help section, with multiple FAQs for the site’s different sections.
+ outstanding support
+ available via phone (they call you), live chat and email
+ you can get them to call you even if you’re not signed-in or not a member yet.
You have one of the larger collections of casino games, with 1400+ available across all major categories. They cover every big category of games well, they have some decent promotions and they got awards in the past for their customer support. All in all, a great casino to play at!
