Marathonbet is an online gaming site, first established in 1997. It is owned and operated by a company called Panbet Limited. Their website is available in over 20 languages and they have a customer base of over 1.5 million customers, so Marathonbet is very well established within the market.
Whatever sport you are wishing to gamble on, you can be assured that Marathonbet will have their books open to allow you to place a bet, whether the sport is mainstream or not. They have a wide range of sports available from horse racing and football, right through to floorball, chess and Gaelic football.
Marathonbet run a number of different bonus codes, dependent on where your interests lie. One of the most common bonus codes available, which runs all the time is the free credit when you first register with the site. We look further in depth in this article into which bonuses are available and how you can qualify for them.
Whether you are a long standing customer of Marathonbet, or you have just started playing with them, Marathonbet are offering a free matched bet. For every bet you place, they will match it up to £20 for new customers. Should you wish to use this facility, you need to enter the code TV20 when placing your first bet, which means that Marathonbet guarantee to match your stake, up to a value of £20. As with any offer, there is a minimum play through amount before you can withdraw any winnings, but for the average player, this is done quite easily with this offer.
For those who have no deposit on the site, Marathonbet offers something called advancebet. This is not a credit facility, instead it takes into account the bet you are going to place and what the potential payout could be and advances your stake. You do need to have already placed bets on the site and have at least one unsettled bet on an event which is due to start within 48 hours. When your unsettled bet pays out, this is used to offset the advancebet. However, should your payout be less than the advancebet amount, then Marathonbet will cover the difference in your payout and your advancebet amount.
Marathonbet do not do a lot of offers, instead they prefer to offer the best odds available across the other Internet gaming sites and so their loyal customers can rest in the knowledge that they are getting the best available odds. Marathonbet also offers a VIP access area for its loyal customers, which is likely to appeal to the keen betting customer, who like to stake the larger sums of cash. This VIP area allows their loyal customers to make bets with no stake limits. Combine this with Marathonbet’s competitive odds across a wide range of markets and it makes it a very tempting offer for the serious bettor.
Marathonbet has a very generous casino offer for new customers, offering everything from free spins to a very generous £250 casino bonus. These are all available to new customers and we will discuss how to qualify for these.
One of the easiest offers to qualify for is the free spins. The current offer is for 5 free spins, on the slot game “Guns and Roses”. To qualify for these free spins, you need to be a newly registered player and play your free spins within 3 days. When you register for your new account, the spins will be credited the next working day, after that the 3 days to use these will begin. Should you win on your free spins, in order to withdraw the amount, although they will be credited to your account immediately, you need to wager the bonus funds that you have won at least thirty times the bonus amount before you can withdraw the funds.
The biggest casino bonus is the free £250, for your first deposit. In order to qualify for this, you need to enter the code GNR250, when depositing your first amount. This will automatically credit you will £250 as well as the amount you have deposited. The offer stipulates that you need to have a play through of twenty times the deposit and bonus amounts before any winnings can be withdrawn.
Currently Marathonbet are not offering any specific bonuses for their poker games, but the free £250 deposit listed above can be used to play against poker games. One trick that some users have found that have worked is to talk to the live chat about signing up and asking specifically about if they have any poker bonuses for new members signing up. This will often work and they can give you a bonus via the chat screen. It’s often worth asking.
There are currently no bingo bonuses available at the time of writing, however the free £20 on initial deposit offer also applies to those wishing to play bingo, or lotto as it is called by Marathonbet.
Marathonbet is very good at providing a wide variety of different mediums for you to contact them. You can speak to customer service either by writing to them, phoning them – in which it is a local cost number opposed to an 0870 number, you can email or use their live web chat service. This means you can contact their customer service by whatever means is your preferred method and the live chat means they are on hand 24/7 to assist. Their customer service is happy to help with a wide number of queries, from anything such as betting advice and how to place a bet, to responsible gambling and website help.
Reviews online from their customers credit Marathonbet with some of the most helpful customer service agents, who seem genuinely happy to help, no matter what the query is. A number of existing and new customers said how helpful their support was for first time users and a number of queries such as how to gain extra bonuses, how to use bonuses listed on their website and even general betting and gambling advice, was delivered in a professional and courteous manner. Customer service is provided in a number of languages, with there currently being 6 languages available both on live chat and over the phone, although they will default to English.
Live chat is available for customers and non customers alike. To start the chat, you need to submit your full name, either your email address (if you are unregistered) or your login address and a brief description of your query. After this, you will then be connected to the next available agent, who will assist you in your query. Wait times are very low, even at peak times, and often you are connected to an agent within 5 minutes.
A number of people have had success securing extra bonuses through speaking to the web chat, usually stating they are a new customer and wishing to play with Marathonbet, but cannot find a matching code for that particular game. It doesn’t always work, however it can prove useful, especially if other providers are offering these codes.
If you are a low to average bettor, in terms of stakes then it is well worth registering to Marathonbet to take advantage of their welcome offer and gain the £20 free credit. By the time you have played through the initial value and the required play through amount, it is well worth doing and hopefully means you will gain some winnings. However, as with any gambling activity, there is no guarantee you will turn a profit. For those who are interested in the casino, the current £250 credit offer is an extremely good one.
Alongside the bonuses mentioned in this article, Marathonbet also offer a number of other bonuses and offers, such as lucky bet or double your winnings, where certain bets will be selected as the lucky bet and should they win, the payout will be higher than the original odds.
Combining their good odds with their welcome bonuses, whether you prefer betting on the various sports, including live fixtures, or you prefer playing online games and bingo, the payouts at Marathonbet are generous due to their odds.
The only quibble we could find with Marathonbet was the website feels very outdated and it can be hard to find your place within the site, although it is very easy to find out how to contact customer service, who are more than happy to assist if you cannot find what you are looking for. So although the website feels a bit “clunky”, you can get the assistance you need to navigate your way round it.
