First founded in 2001, NetBet is one of the oldest continually operating casinos on the web. It was also the first online wagering site to accept Bitcoin. NetBet has grown and evolved over time to become one of the internet's true supercasinos, a "one- stop shop" covering everything from slots to sports wagering to table poker, all but the lattermost of which is accessible without having to switch software or apps (and much of it is also available for in-browser play.)
Available Games and Software
A stop by the "Casino" section of NetBet reveals a sprawling collection of games suited for a Vegas Strip floor.
As with any property, slots are the most numerous by far, with 397 in total at the time of this writing. NetBet makes this a bit more confusing than usual, however, as they've opted to separate their slots collection into one standard grouping and another under a "Vegas" heading. Some of the standard slots are actually on casino floors, and some of the "Vegas" slots are online-only, so it's a somewhat odd and unclear distinction. What's really going on here is that all the NetEnt-developed games are in the standard section, while the games licensed from rival Playtech get their own space in the Vegas area.
Among all these various slots are 61 with progressive jackpots. The bulk of these are in the Vegas section, including the most lucrative one, Jackpot Giant (where the main jackpot can climb into the tens of millions of pounds.) Don't miss the popular Mega Millions in the standard slots section, however, which is often the second-largest major jackpot sitting in the low millions somewhere. Others worthy of note for big hauls include Gladiator, the Age of the Gods series, and Monty Python's Life of Brian.
The casino collection is rounded out with 30 varieties of roulette, 23 kinds of video poker (Kings of Chicago doesn't count as it is really a slot game in video poker attire), 21 blackjack varieties, two hold 'em games, two types of baccarat, pontoon and punto banco, and one each of Sic Bo, Caribbean Stud, Red Dog and craps.
A good selection of live dealer game types are also available: fourteen types of roulette, six of blackjack, two of baccarat, Dream Catcher and a few varieties of poker.
Of course, NetBet has built their reputation just as much on sports betting as on casino games, and you can expect robust options in this area including a wide variety of in-play wagers.
If you'd like to play table poker, you'll need to download the separate NetBet Poker, available as Windows software or as an app for iOS or Android.
Scratch cards are also available as well as the Netbet Lottery, which is effectively keno.
Deposit and Withdrawal Options
NetBet supports the full range of standard options, including:
Credit Cards: MasterCard, Visa, Diners Club
E-Wallets: EntroPay, Neteller, Skrill and Skrill Direct, PayPal
Prepaid Cards: PaySafeCard
Bank Transfers: Sofort, WebMoney, Qiwi, Moneta
Safety and Security
In addition to their standard UK Gambling Commission oversight, the RNG for the games at NetBet are regularly tested by iTech Labs.
Is NetBet Worth It?
NetBet has a little something for just about everyone; at least if you prefer poker, sports betting, slots, roulette, video poker or blackjack. Options for games like craps and baccarat are still a little thin here, but nevertheless, NetBet is one of the closest online properties to capturing the essence of just being able to wander around a Vegas mega-casino and have every gaming option at your disposal.
Don't miss their great signup promotions, which include up to to £50 for sports betting and £15 in chips for the poker room.
