Considering it is now over 15 years old, you would probably expect more people to have heard of Expekt by now. The product of two financial and IT industry workers in Christian Haupt and Conny Gesar, Expekt was created with a concise sports betting framework in mind. In many ways it’s a shame that more people haven’t taken the time to part with their money at Expekt, but as more people are seemingly becoming familiar with the bookmaker that could all be about to change. In this review we will look at what you can ‘expect’ when you start sports betting through Expekt.
Bonuses and Promotions
Starting with what Expekt offers (or in this case doesn’t offer) new and existing players. On the bonus front there is sadly little to be found at Expekt, but that in some ways helps make Expekt the bookmaker that it is. They pride themselves on delivering great odds instead of flashy one-time deals, which really does work in the bookmaker’s favour. If you really must have a bookmaker that provides you with regular offers, then while they don’t offer much, Expekt’s ‘5 or more accumulator insurance’ shouldn’t be discounted. It should also be noted that they offer mobile users a £10 risk free bet too.
Markets and Services
The core offering from Expekt comes in the form of football markets. They pride themselves on delivering a wide range of options and in some ways I was surprised by just how much they offered. From the very best of the Champions League to several obscure international leagues, what you’ll find on Expekt is some of the best football markets anywhere online. The betting doesn’t begin and end with football either, as they offer plenty of other betting action in the realms of rugby, snooker, eSports, among others. They’ve also recently raised the ante when it comes to the betting options they offer players. You’ll find that all the standard formats are here (including fixed odds, European handicap, over/under, and Asian handicap), but they also offer a few several specialist bets. For example, I found the “goals scored x corners given” bet to be oddly interesting. At Expekt they seem blend the normal and the not so normal pretty well.
Customer support with Expekt comes with some localised geographical location conditions, as it will sometimes depend on where you are with regards to access times. However, speaking generally they do offer a customer support network that is definitely worth mentioning. Staff can be contacted 24/7 through email support and the turnaround time comes in at around the hour mark, which really isn’t bad when compared to other online sportsbook providers. While should you choose live chat, you can expect to receive help for smaller issues almost instantaneously. Looking back, the customer support options provided by Expekt really to do prove to be one of the bookmaker’s strong suits.
Look and Feel
When it comes to providing a workable and functional online sports betting platform, Expekt have such down to an art form. The website is clear and concise an uses clever colour offsets to make sure that nothing is left out of sight to players. You can navigate through pages and bet in an instant should you wish, so you’ll never ever be any more than one or two clicks away from the market you want.
Expekt is an online bookmaker that has been building up a loyal following at a slow yet consistent rate over the past few years. By offering players plenty of markets and an intuitive UI, it is hard to find fault with what Expekt brings to the sports betting party.
