Bonus Offers - Dreadfully dodgy deals

Before we begin this part of our GTBets review, we want to make a few things clear. Much of this scam site is aimed at an American audience. Obviously, discussing sites that are relevant to our readers is of prime importance to us.

With that said, it’s important to note that the site does not, according to its terms and conditions, offer a GTBets coupon code or accept wagers from from “Australia, Israel, Russia, Latvia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Great Britain/The United Kingdom, The Netherlands, The Netherlands Antilles, Aruba, Canada, Chad, Cuba, Denmark, France, Haiti, Iran, Iraq, Italy, North Korea, Myanmar, Serbia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Syria, Sudan, Suriname, Sweden, Libya, and the following U.S. States: Arkansas, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Washington, and West Virginia”.

However, because GTBets does utilise cryptocurrencies, it’s a lot more international than its looks and sports focus – American Football and basketball take the lion's share of the focus here – would suggest. We have decided to go ahead with this GTBets review but wanted to make you aware of just how bad this bookie is.

Also, things like terms and conditions and minimum amounts are written in US Dollars. We don’t want to make any assumptions about how this translates to other currencies, especially as that is a subject which sees a lot of fluctuation. Therefore, we’ll be discussing these terms as they are written for the sake of accuracy. We will, however, make reference to any countries that are restricted as noted by the terms and conditions as we help you understand why you should avoid GTBets!

A pitiful GTBets welcome offer

GTBets has no shortage of dodgy promotions and we’re here to take you through all the details, be that a GTBets coupon code, GTBets promo codes or anything else.

We’ll start with the pathetic signup offer. While there’s no GTBets no deposit bonus, there’s a rubbish 150% bonus split into two deposits: a sorry 100% cash bonus up to $500 on your first deposit and a dismal 50% cash bonus up to $250 on the second. Vitally, this is a cash bonus, meaning you keep both the wager and the winnings. The minimum deposit is a whopping $35 and the maximum is $500. That minimum deposit is a lot higher than some and when you consider the wagering requirement is 12x rollover on a cash bonus, this is a truly terrible offer.

Other key terms and conditions include this being strictly one bonus per customer (one too many!) and the bonus can be withheld due to irregular play, as outlined in the terms on the site. GTBets reserves the right to restrict the bonus from users in the following countries: Albania, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Latvia, Moldova, Nigeria, Norway, People's Republic of China, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, Sweden, Taiwan, and Ukraine. There’s no GTBets promo codes or GTBets coupon code that we would recommend.

Dodgy promotional terms and conditions

One rule that applies for all of these dismal bonuses is the use of bonus rollover points. Every bonus you accept will be tied to a bonus rollover point amount you must fulfil to receive that bonus. Rollover points are provided based on every $10 you bet, with different points based on what you bet on. For example, sports will net you 5 points for every $10 bet, while table games only earn you 1 point. Horse racing offers the most value at 7.5 points for every $10 wagered. The amount of rollover points is determined by the amount you deposit if you made the mistake of giving GTBets your cash.

It’s unnecessarily complicated and your bets barely count towards wagering requirements needed to withdraw the bonus money, regardless of how it’s worded.

This is really important, according to customer service, you need to hit the amount of points requested in order to withdraw any of your funds. Therefore, you should consider deeply whether you want to pursue this or any bonus with that term in place. We also strongly advise you avoid this scam betting site.

Other bleak GTBets bonuses

There’s also an awful Automated Reload Bonus and the details of this were rather vague. The pathetic Favourite Teams bonus allows you to pick a favourite team from the NFL, NCAA Football, NBA and NCAA Basketball, and you’ll get half a point free on every regular season game for each of your favourite teams. There’s also a horrible Horse Rebate promotion which nets you a 15% rebate on any net monthly losses incurred while betting on horses. Plus, there’s a selection of crappy casino bonuses, such as fraudulent free spins bonuses and a rubbish refer a friend bonus.

So, the selection here is pretty bad in terms of variety and most of the terms appear unreasonable. Some of the language here was hard for us to understand and the inclusion of the points system – where you have to meet a certain amount of points to withdraw in general – is way too confusing. So avoid any GTBets promo codes or GTBets coupon codes!

Usability, Look & Feel - A car crash of a gambling site

We mentioned this is a US-focused site and that’s not just in terms of it being full of itself (just kidding!), as this is also the case when it comes to the looks of GTBets. The badly designed logo is a baseball and the key sports are American.

Do note though there’s no difference in terms of GTBets promo codes or any GTBets coupon codes and that’s because, as far as we’re aware, there’s no GTBets promo codes or GTBets coupon codes to speak of. This is a logistical and design choice that reflects the frankly rubbish approach of this site.

If this appeals to you, you are out of your mind. GTBets certainly has a crappy late-night feel that will appeal to barely anyone. There’s certainly something offensive about what GTBets does visually, and you can blame them for a terribly designed site.

GTBets structure and technical performance

It’s important to note that looks aren’t the only thing we’re paying attention to in our GTBets review. For the most part, all the information is hard to find, whether it’s GTBets coupon codes and GTBets promo codes, terms or whatever markets you’re looking for. This is also part of absence of design, as the poor structure of the site – in other words, everything being illogically laid out and tricky to find – is part and parcel of what makes this a dismal experience.

This is no doubt helped by the fact that GTBets keeps its style confusing. Technically too, we were not happy with anything that we found at GTBets as it was full of technical hiccups.

Visually, GTBets is not be crafting a revolution with the appearance of their site. Their design choices keep things ugly and it makes it hard to find any notable GTBets coupon codes. We also think their simple American focused approach will annoy many and its minimalism has no benefits, backed up by poor technical quality. Another bleak section in our GTBets review.

Payments - Don't give GTBets your money

One of the biggest reasons a lot of people are avoiding this operator, and why many will be reading this GTBets review, is that they have a poor selection of payment methods. Of course, payment methods are always a source of gruesome interest, just like those terrible GTBets coupon codes or GTBets promo codes.

Specifically though, GTBets is of limited interest because they offer Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, which really opens up a whole new world in terms of scamming its audience. There also, as far as we can tell, doesn’t appear to be many restrictions for users of different currencies compared to other competitors. Like their general lack of GTBets promo codes, they seem to keep things confusing and disappointing for the most part here. This can also be seen in the Cashier section, which really went a long way in confusing us with our GTBets review by making all the information we need hard to find.

Terrible GTBets payment methods

First off, the deposit options available at the time of writing allegedly include American Express, Mastercard and Visa, although no legit bank would let you pay here. There are also dodgy cryptocurrency options such as Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin XPR, QuickCash and a prepaid Gift Card. Bear in mind that there are some scammy fees for some deposits.

The minimum for all these deposit options is way too high, with QuickCash once again being the exception with an even higher minimum. The maximum is poor, with the exception of the prepaid gift card, which is even worse, and Quickcash once again which is even more disappointing.

For deposits, your ideal choice be to avoid giving GTBets your money. Speaking of Bitcoin, that’s also an option for payout alongside, bank wire and Quickcash. There is a daft fee for bank wire and either a massive fee minimum or high percentage of your requested amount for QuickCash, Bitcoin is barely free, once again making it a popular choice for anyone who wants to get ripped-off.

The minimum for bank wire is way too high, with a frankly silly maximum, with one payment per customer every seven days. The latter point is true for the other two examples as well. The minimum for Bitcoin is unfair, and the maximum is barely enough. No maximum is specified for QuickCash and it all goes to show why you should avoid GTBets.

Customer Service - Pitiful

As we mentioned during our look into promotions, we had to contact customer service a number of times, whether that be to see if there were any GTBets coupon codes we should know about, or to wrap our heads around the points based system. The bad news for this part of our GTBets review is that customer service is totally useless.

They barely responded and when they did it was far slower than you get elsewhere. They also have the cheek to ask you to provide your e-mail so they can contact you as soon as they can - even though they never do. We never actually got a response from them.

Not only that but they were very unhelpful too, with vague and misleading answers to most of our questions. There's a phone number: 1-800-509-4847, although we have to admit that this was hardly ever answered.

Oh, and while we are on the subject, they did say that GTBets promo codes or the use of a GTBets coupon code in the future (or for things like email promotions) might be forthcoming, so be sure to avoid those. Poor stuff all round in this part of our GTBets review.

License & Security - Avoid this scam site

When it comes to the question of “is GTBets legit?”, one of the first things people look for is a license. This caused us a massive issue, as that information is not made clear on the site. Our research would very much suggest that they have a license from Curacao, as that is very widely reported, but we could not actually find confirmation on the site itself. This is a massive red flag and a big reason to avoid this scam site.

The same also goes for encryption. Unfortunately, we cannot provide you with any information in that regard because we cannot confirm anything via the site, which is a very frustrating part of our GTBets review, especially as they have been pretty clear in a lot of other areas like GTBets promo codes. They do utilise some vague KYC procedures, but you have little to protect you against fraud in general.

We want to make clear that GTBets has a bad reputation for security. It just appears there's a more than lack of information, meaning we will have to remain harsh in our judgement here because we simply have a negative assessment in this part of our GTBets review. For detailed info on the licensing and security of other popular bookies, check out our Is Boyle Sports legit and Is Betfred safe reviews.

Rewards & Loyalty Program - Don't bother

While there are plenty of dodgy promotions that are available on GTBets – and all of them, you could argue, are rubbish – there is nothing here that we would consider to be a traditional loyalty program. Although, this is an interesting one because a points based system that is used alongside the traditional promotions is one of the key pillars of a loyalty program.

What we think would improve the promotional offering, by making it less complicated, is to have the points system as part of a reward program, with the other promotions being separate and with their own individual and enclosed conditions. We think that would make them more attractive to more customers than the scam system currently being operated.

It’s a shame to us that the promotions are made more complicated because they are simply dismal to begin with. They even lack a GTBets coupon code to streamline their accessibility, but are made tough to understand through a merging of traditional bonus terms and the type of terms you usually see with a reward bonus.

GTbets Sports Betting

Betting Markets - Dreadful performance here

While the casino offering is extremely important to GTBets, we didn’t feel right about starting this part of our GTBets review anywhere other than here. Their pathetic logo is a baseball and sports are the first things you see on the main toolbar, so it just feels fitting.

Do note that other parts relevant to the sportsbook – the promotions and the whereabouts of GTBets promo codes, for instance – will not be included here, as we do not wish to repeat ourselves. With that in mind, let’s head into the absolutely tragic part of our GTBets review.

American sports do take centre stage here, as you would likely expect, with baseball being the first example to pop up. And there certainly are only limited markets for things like baseball, American Football and basketball, to give some examples. However, as we have mentioned before, this is a site with hardly any international appeal , with soccer, rugby, tennis, golf and e-Sports also all being barely available.

Odds - Weak betting odds

To test the odds, we check out something called the overround. This is the margin above 100% which all possible outcomes come to. It is essentially the bookmaker’s edge over the bettor. Anything under 110% is generally considered fair in terms of providing value while still allowing the bookmaker to stay in business.

One example is the Toronto vs Tampa Bay MLB contest. Toronto were given moneyline odds with an implied probability of 38.5%, while Tamba Bay were given an implied probability of 63.6%. This comes to a total that showed that these were very  uncompetitive odds. This is just one example, but we looked at several more and got similar results, meaning we were very unhappy with the sports odds presented.

Live Betting & Streaming - Poor attempt

There was – at least in terms of what we could see at the time of writing – no live streaming available. Plus there were barely any live markets to choose from. The layout here is boring, as is the design philosophy of GTBets generally.

Limits - Avoid this dodgy bookie

Much like GTBets promo codes or a GTBets coupon code, there are no set betting limits here. This is pretty common as the amount an operator can accept often depends on the popularity of the market. The easy way to check is simply to see if your bet is accepted, and it’s fair to say that GTBets has a bad reputation in this regard.

Product Summary & Conclusion - A terrible bookmaker

GTBets keeps things poor with a really bleak selection of betting markets, all of which are hard to find, follow, understand and most importantly, bet on. They are American-centric and they aren’t zoned for more international appeal, which is a big part of their lack of success in this part of our GTBets review.

GTbets Casino

Overall Conclusion - A terrible betting site

We may not have been able to give you a GTBets coupon code or GTBets promo codes, but we still hope you found this deep dive into this operator enlightening. The key issue we found was that GTBets is simply a hopeless betting site -  particularly in the case of the promotional terms which are way more complicated than they should be. We also think that the license and security situation means that you should avoid this site like the plague.

There are so many areas in which the operator did extremely badly in our GTBets review. They have pitiful customer service, a poor selection of betting markets to choose from, a very bland casino offering and a confusing interface. Most important for many will be their inclusion of cryptocurrencies which again shows it to be a scam gambling site.
