Betzest are one of the newest online bookmakers, having first set up their web presence as recently as 2018. They’re a new brand but a few months of trading gives customers enough time to assess early progress and whether or not it is worth signing up here.
There certainly seems to be some interest in Betzest, particularly in mainland Europe so we logged on to make our own judgements.

Sports Markets / Odds
This is a bookmaker who tends to focus on the main sporting markets while the niche events are left out. You won’t be able to bet on chess or yachting here but there is a good mix of options with some unusual sports covered in the following list:
Football, Basketball, Tennis, Ice Hockey, Volleyball, Handball, Baseball, American Football, Aussie Rules Football, Bandy, Boxing, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, Futsal, Golf, Motorsport, MMA, Rugby, Snooker, Table Tennis, Waterpolo and Winter Sports.
In addition, there are some specials from politics and entertainment. There is a separate webpage for virtual sports but we were unable to find any markets for eSports and this is also a bookmaker who avoids horse racing and greyhounds.
As for odds, it’s far too soon for Betzest to appear on the main odds comparison sites but we checked a sample of prices and they can compete – particularly in the core areas of football and tennis.
Betzest list a wide spread of eWallets for deposits and withdrawals so everyone should have at least one method of gaining access. Skrill and Neteller are both here as the main providers and they are joined by Astropay, EPS, Sofort, Zimpler, PurplePay and Entercash.
For those who prefer to fund in the traditional way, all of the major debit and credit cards are also accepted so once signed up, there is a good choice of banking options here. Check the button marked ‘payments’ at the bottom of the Betzest home page for full details of transaction times and any other terms.
This bookmaker has moved quickly to set up a 24/7 live chat operator and this is how most customers like to get their information these days. Having tested the service, it has proved to be fast and easy to access but there are alternatives for those who like to do things a little more anonymously.
The Contact Us button leads to a webform while there is also a set of frequently asked questions which are logically laid out and easy to follow. Overall, most of the help options are here and at this stage they appear to be fast and effective.
A lot of new bookmakers like to evolve as they go along but Betzest have got a number of things right straight away. There is a generous welcome offer as of January 2019 although the lack of ongoing promotions is one area that could be improved.
In terms of choice, the main sports are all included and there are some niches with only the most obscure of events failing to make it onto the list. Odds stack up very well against the established brands so there is also value here from start to finish. The focus is on continental Europe so certain sports such as horse racing are also left out. That’s not uncommon but the lack of eSports is, perhaps, another area to address.
Overall this is a positive start and while it’s still early days, there are many good reasons to get on board with Betzest right away.
- Generous welcome bonus
- Competitive odds, particularly in core sports
- Good set of funding options including some obscure eWallets
- Live chat operator heads list of help facilities
- Good mix of markets but lack of horse racing, greyhounds and eSports will be a disadvantage for some customers.
