Before we begin this part of our GTBets review, we want to make a few things clear. Much of this site is aimed at an American audience. Obviously, from our BetOnline review to our Intertops review and beyond, 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 the situation as it stands at the time of writing.
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.
GTBets welcome offer
GTBets has no shortage of 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 signup offer. While there’s no GTBets no deposit bonus, there’s a 150% bonus split into two deposits: a 100% cash bonus up to $500 on your first deposit and a 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 $35 and the maximum is $500. That minimum deposit may be a little higher than some but when you consider the wagering requirement is just 12x rollover on a cash bonus, this is a truly exceptional offer.
Other key terms and conditions include this being strictly one bonus per customer 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 could note.
One rule that applies for all 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.
It’s complicated, no doubt, but doesn’t in practise change how you receive the bonus amount in concept. Your bets count towards wagering requirements needed to withdraw the bonus money, regardless of how it’s worded.
However – and 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 to check out the full terms and conditions for yourself before committing to any offer.
Other GTBets bonuses
There’s also an Automated Reload Bonus, although unfortunately, the details of this were rather vague. The 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 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 casino bonuses, such as free spins bonuses and a general refer a friend bonus.
So, the selection here is pretty good in terms of variety and most of the terms appear fairly reasonable. However, 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 – changes the dynamic and value of these promotions. It’s also worth pointing out that we didn’t notice any GTBets promo codes or GTBets coupon codes.
We mentioned this is a US-focused site and that’s not just in terms of logistics, as this is also the case when it comes to the looks of GTBets. The 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 back to basics approach of this site.
There’s no right or wrong answer in terms of whether this appeals to you. We all have our different aesthetic tastes. GTBets certainly has a mature, late-night feel that will appeal to a lot of people. Then again, a lot of other people prefer their betting sites to be more colourful. It really is a matter of preference. There’s certainly nothing offensive about what GTBets does visually, and you can hardly blame them for going down the American focused route considering their target audience.
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 easy 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 design, as the structure of the site – in other words, everything being logically laid out and easy to find – is part and parcel of what makes this an enjoyable experience.
This is no doubt helped by the fact that GTBets keeps its style minimalistic, so even if you would have preferred more bells and whistles, this is a serious upside. Technically too, we were happy with everything that we found at GTBets, and didn’t encounter anything in terms of slowdown or technical hiccups of note.
Visually, GTBets might not be crafting a revolution with the appearance of their site. Their design choices keep things simple – like the lack of any notable GTBets coupon codes, for instance – but we also think their simple American focused approach will please many and its minimalism has its structural benefits, backed up by technical quality. Good stuff for this part of our GTBets review.
One of the biggest reasons a lot of people are interested in this operator, and why many will be reading this GTBets review, is that they have a wide selection of payment methods. Of course, payment methods are always a source of great interest, just like GTBets coupon codes or GTBets promo codes. They’re a vital part of any review, whether that be our 5Dimes review, Bodog reviews, BetHard review, or any of the many others available, like our Bovada review or our MyBookie review, to give but a few examples.
Specifically though, GTBets is of interest because they offer Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, which really opens up a whole new world in terms of 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 simple for the most part here. This can also be seen in the Cashier section, which really went a long way in helping us out with our GTBets review by making all the information we need easy to find.
GTBets payment methods and details
First off, the deposit options available at the time of writing include American Express, Mastercard and Visa, alongside cryptocurrency options such as Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin XPR, QuickCash and a prepaid Gift Card. Key points include the lack of fees for all deposits, with the exception of QuickCash, which is free for deposits worth $200 and up but charges $10 under that amount.
The minimum for all these deposit options is $35, with QuickCash once again being the exception with a $100 minimum. The maximum is $2,000 for each, with the exception of the prepaid gift card, which is $999, and Quickcash once again which is $500.
For deposits, your ideal choice will be largely determined by your use, or non-use of cryptocurrencies. For many of the former, the ultra-popular Bitcoin will be the obvious choice.
Speaking of Bitcoin, that’s also an option for payout alongside, bank wire and Quickcash. There is a $40 fee for bank wire and either a $50 fee minimum or 8% of requested amount for QuickCash, Bitcoin is free, once again making it a popular choice for many.
The minimum for bank wire is $100, with a $5,000 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 $300, and the maximum is $5,000. No maximum is specified for QuickCash.
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 good news for this part of our GTBets review is that customer service is available 24/7 via live chat as your first port of call.
Even better is that, in our experience, they responded within moments – far faster than the several minutes estimate they suggest. Indeed, if they aren’t able to get to you straight away, they seem to have a compromise in the form of their [email protected] email. They also ask you to provide your e-mail so they can contact you as soon as they can. We never actually had to use this feature during our talks with them, as their responses were always so quick.
Not only that but they were very helpful too, with full and comprehensive answers to most of our questions, with only a few seeming to need additional consideration. There's even a phone number: 1-800-509-4847, although we have to admit that this will only be relevant to certain parts of their audience.
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) isn’t necessarily out of the question. Great stuff all round in this part of our GTBets review.
When it comes to the question of “is GTBets legit?”, one of the first things people look for is a license. Indeed, this is the case for our reviews generally, from our 10Bet review to our Betclic review, with plenty more inbetween.
This caused us a slight issue though, 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. We hope that this is a mere oversight and one which is rectified as soon as possible.
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 KYC procedures though, so that does add a level of protection for minors and against fraud in general.
We want to make clear that it isn’t like GTBets has a bad reputation for security at all – quite the opposite. It just appears there's a lack of information, meaning we will have to remain neutral in our judgement here because we simply don’t have what we need to make an accurate 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.
While there are plenty of promotions that are available on GTBets – and all of them, you could argue, do to some extent reward loyalty – there is nothing here that we would consider to be a tradtional 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.
It’s a shame to us that the promotions are made more complicated because they otherwise have so much potential. 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.
