Parimatch Reviews & Ratings UK 2021
Is Parimatch reliable?
Welcome to our Parimatch reviews, where you’ll find our Parimatch ratings on everything from the current bonus offer to the answer to the question ‘is Parimatch reliable?’
Unfortunately, Parimatch is no longer active in the UK market. You can still grab great deals from other big UK bookmakers, though - just take a look at the latest STSBet bonus offer!
When it comes to promotions, our Parimatch reviews found that Parimatch UK offers you a choice of four different welcome offers, each one tailored to different types of bettors. So if you prefer to bet on a wide range of sports or just football and horse racing, if you’re a fan of casino table games or slots, at least one of these promotions is bound to suit your needs!

Parimatch: Pros & Cons
- Four different welcome offers to choose from
- Decent range of sports markets and casino games
- Fully licensed provider
- Relatively low bonus amounts offered
- Not the greatest amount of payment methods
If you don’t already have an account with Parimatch UK, there are as many as four different welcome offers available. You heard us - four welcome offers! But if you think that sounds too good to be true, then you’d be right. You’re only allowed to choose one of these promotions when you sign up; so make sure you do some research before you commit to one!
If the voice in the back of your head hasn’t stopped asking ‘is Parimatch reliable?’ and started asking ‘which welcome offer should I go for?’ yet, then let’s see if we can change that by the end of this section in our Parimatch reviews. Your options are:
Sports Welcome Offer
Bet £5 Get £30. To trigger this bonus, you just need to opt in and bet £5 (odds 2.00+) within 7 days of registration to get 3 x £10 bonus bets for set events. Here’s how these work:
- £10 for a single bet on any sports or esports.
- £10 for a 5+ selection acca on any sports or esports.
- £10 for any in-play sports or esports event.
There are a couple of minor restrictions you need to think about before claiming the Sports welcome offer. First of all, the bonus bets can only be used on set events, and the odds need to be 2.00 (1/1) or higher. Secondly, your bonus bets expire in a week. Good news, though: there are no wagering requirements!
Casino Welcome Offer
Wager £10 Get £70. Just opt in and wager £10 on selected games within 7 days of registration. Doing this snags you a total of £70 in bonuses for selected games: 2 x £20 and 3 x £10.
The wagering requirements are up to 40x the bonus amount, and must be fulfilled within a week of the bonus money being credited to your account. But, trust us, it could be much worse. We’ve seen wagering requirements as high as 70x before. No thanks!
There is a further, more frustrating, restriction: restriction: the max redeemable winnings are £1750. So if you used the entire £70 bonus, you could end up spending more money fulfilling the wagering requirements (£2800) than you’d be allowed to withdraw.
But think about this: you don’t have to use all five of the bonuses you get. You could actually hit the max winnings on a single £10 bonus bet and only pay £40 in wagering requirements. Unlikely, we know, but it is possible. Which should prove how flexible this bonus offer is - making it useful after all, especially for casual bettors and casino fans.
Slots Welcome Offer
If you’re a fan of slots, then £30 + 100 free spins could be the bonus for you. Just opt in and wager £10 within 7 days of registering. The £30 bonus can only be used on selected games, and again there is a cap on your winnings: £750 max. The wagering requirements for this offer are 35x - still high, but not the worst.
Bet £10 Get £40. This bonus is ideal if, like most of us Brits, you place most of your bets on football and horse racing. Just opt in and make a first bet of £10 (odds 2.00+) on sports within 7 days of registration to get 4 x £10 bonus bets for set events. These bonus bets expire within 48 hours, so you’ve got to be quick!
- £10 for any football single (2.00+)
- £10 for any football 5-Fold+
- £10 for any horse racing market (3.00+)
- £10 for any horse racing double+
Our Parimatch ratings are average for these offers. The wagering requirements may be on the high end for the Casino and Slots welcome offers (and the capped winnings annoyingly small), but they have the added benefit of flexibility. As for the two sports betting offers, these have no wagering requirements or max payouts at all, making them perfect for any sports bettor.
But all that matters is whether or not you think any of the four promotions offered by Parimatch UK are up to scratch. If the answer is no, then there are a few other close competitors you may want to compare with. Take a look at our Karamba review or our Hollywood Bets rating - or both!
You’re still asking yourself ‘is Parimatch secure?’, aren’t you? Well before we get to easing your mind, next in our Parimatch reviews we will discuss the usability, look and feel of both the operator’s desktop site and - if there is one! - its mobile app.
Your first impression of the Parimatch UK website will probably be the quick loading times. It’s the worst when you have to watch a page buffer even for a few seconds, especially when you’re raring to place a bet. Imagine missing out on an in-play market because the page took too long to load! But there’s no need to worry about that here.
The next thing you’ll notice is the site’s straightforward layout. There is a convenient navigation bar on the left side of each page that contains all of the links you should need. You can find your account information at the top right corner of every page, and underneath that, there is a list of mini-games for quick play.
The website also has a simple design that uses a black/grey, yellow and white theme. You can’t exactly call it eye-catching or exciting, but it is functional and effective. And the theme is consistent across both the sportsbook and casino sections, which isn’t something we see as often as you may expect.
If you’re the type of bettor who, like us, enjoys gambling on the go, then we’ve got some good news and bad news for you. Bad news first? Okay, well there is currently no mobile app available. As for the good news: the Parimatch website has been optimised for mobile. So you can access the site via the web page in your mobile app.
Overall we’re giving above average Parimatch ratings for the operator’s website design.
In the next section of our Parimatch reviews we will go through the payment options available, plus anything else you need to know before making a deposit (or if you’ve already jumped the gun, a withdrawal!) at Parimatch UK.
For those of you questioning ‘is Parimatch reliable?’, you can sometimes (but not always) find clear signs of a dodgy operator in how they handle payments - like if there are withdrawal limits or long processing times.
Available deposit methods include Visa, MasterCard, Skrill, Neteller and Bitcoin. For withdrawals, the options are pretty much the same. There are also a few lesser-known options - but keep in mind that the specific payment methods do vary depending on currency and location, so always double-check.
Although not the greatest number of payment options you’ll ever see, what sets Parimatch ahead of the pack is the fact that they accept cryptocurrency transactions. Also, withdrawals are processed quickly, with debit cards taking up to 3 days and ewallets taking as little as 15 minutes. Overall we think all of this deserves above average Parimatch ratings.
If you ever have a problem or a question about your account, bonus money, whatever, then these Parimatch reviews recommend your first step should be the website’s ‘Help Centre’. If that gets you nowhere, Parimatch UK has a live chat feature, which you’ll find on the left of each page. There’s also email and phone support.
The helpfulness of an operator’s customer support team can also be an indicator of the answer to the question ‘is Parimatch secure?’ But yet again, there’s nothing to worry about here; the live support is 24/7, and the responses are generally quick and helpful.
Once again, we’re giving above average Parimatch ratings in this section.
Is Parimatch secure? As the main focus of our Parimatch reviews, we’ve kept these almost identical questions in mind throughout. Now it’s time to answer the question once and for all - just as we did in our "Is BetVictor safe?" and "Is Mr Green scam?". So, is Parimatch reliable?
The answer is - drum roll, please - yes! Okay, so you’re going to need more convincing than that, we can tell. Don’t take our word for it; decide for yourself. In our quest for the answer to the essential question ‘Is Parimatch secure?’, here are a few things we found out:
Parimatch UK was founded in 1994, which means if it were a person it would be old enough to bet! You’d think that any betting operator with over a quarter of a century of experience must be legit.
Another thing: a quick glance at the bottom of any page will tell you that Parimatch is operated by BetVictor - a household name in the gambling industry. BetVictor has licenses with not just one but two gambling authorities: the Gibraltar Betting and Gaming Association and the UK Gambling Commission. Parimatch itself also has a license from Curaçao eGaming.
Between the three licenses and a quarter of a century in the betting industry, I’m sure you’ll agree that when being asked ‘is Parimatch reliable?’ or ‘is Parimatch secure?’ the definite answer is yes. So we’re giving top Parimatch ratings.
If, for some reason, you’re still not convinced, it may be worth comparing Parimatch to a close competitor; so read our review where we answer the question ‘is BetBull reliable?’
Bad news: there are no bonus offers for existing customers! Other than the four welcome offers, Parimatch UK has no other promotions advertised; so if you prefer to be rewarded for your loyalty, you’ll have to go elsewhere. This means we have to give the low Parimatch ratings in this part of our Parimatch reviews.
