BETONIC SPORTSBOOK REVIEW
Betonic is a relatively young brand which was founded in early 2021. While they offer a variety of gaming options, we are not going to cover all of that here and instead we will focus on their sportsbook platform.
Currently, Betonic operates with a valid Curacao eGaming license (Antillephone N.V. license No 8048/JAZ2010-010), as they have yet to obtain any local licenses in Canada. Nevertheless, they have integrated many popular local payment methods (such as Interac), making it easy for Canadian players to deposit and withdraw funds.
Also, their sports betting section has an impressive coverage for spots and tournaments like the CFL, NFL, NBA and NHL, which are all popular among local sports fans.
The registration process for new players is remarkably straightforward. All you have to do to get started is complete a simple two-step registration form. In the initial step, you will be asked for your email, username and password. Moving on to the second step, you will need to enter your phone number, name and date of birth.
Once you’ve entered all the necessary information and hit that submit button– you are good to go. No additional confirmations or verifications are required at this stage, you can already head over to the sports betting section.
The entire registration process takes less than one minute to complete.
Like most sportsbooks out there, Betonic have a welcome offer for new players. As a newcomer from Canada, you can get a 100% welcome bonus up to C$150 after making your first deposit. Simply make sure to enter the BETONIC100 code on the deposits page before you complete your first payment.
The minimum amount required to trigger this bonus is C$15. Your bonus funds should be automatically added to your player wallet after the deposit is confirmed.
It’s important to note that this bonus is valid for 21 days and must be wagered 10 times before it can be converted into real money. Additionally, please be aware that as long as an active bonus is present on your account, placing bets with odds lower than 2.00 (+100) is not permitted.
Customer support at Betonic is available 24/7 and the primary way to get in touch with support is their live chat window. The live chat feature can be accessed from almost any part of the website.
In order to provide a better picture of what you can expect from a support perspective – we got in touch with them ourselves. The waiting time was less than one minute, so we didn’t have to wait for long to get connected with a support representative.
During our conversation we asked a few simple questions related to bonus terms and betting rules. While it did take some time for the support agent to come back with answers, the answers we were given were accurate and easy to understand.
Having all of the above in mind, we can definitely recommend getting in touch with Betonic’s customer care team if you have any questions or concerns.
SPORTS BETTING SECTION AND ODDS
The sports betting section at Betonic currently lists over 35 different sports disciplines for you to choose from. Obviously, sports like football, hockey, basketball and baseball are the main focus areas. Nonetheless, if you are after something less popular, you will also likely find it here.
Let’s delve into an upcoming NHL matchup between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Washington Capitals to gain a clearer picture of what the betting section has to offer.
Most high-profile hockey games, such as the above one, will have over 100 markets open for betting. This will include a wide range of handicap lines, various period-specific markets as well as player markets.
The live betting section, as is usually the case, has a slightly smaller number of sports compared to the pre-match section. Still, most sports fans will have no issues finding what they are interested in.
If we look at an ongoing live hockey game we will see that there are usually between 10 and 40 markets open at any given moment. The exact number of markets will usually depend on the tournament in question. Top-tier competitions are expected to have more market share compared to less popular ones. Still, betting is open until the very last minutes of any game and there are always available games to choose from.
Betbuilder is a popular feature that you can now see on almost any betting website. Nonetheless, we feel it is important to highlight its availability and show you where it can be accessed.
In case you are not familiar with the term ‘Betbuilder” – this is a special feature that allows combining selections from the same game in a single accumulator bet.
At Betonic, this feature is called “Build a Bet” and, when available, you can find it among the betting market categories. Please bear in mind that it is not available for all games, so you might not always see it.
In case you are looking to take a break from traditional sports betting and try something new, you might be interested in Betonic’s virtual sports section. You can find it as a separate section of the website with its own specific interface.
The two main game providers featured here are Leap and Kiron, which are quite well-known game development studios.
The list of available virtual sports games includes: Football Cup, Football Streak, EuroLeague Basketball, Virtual Motorsports, Horse Racing, Virtual Nascar, Greyhounds, Virtual Golf, Virtual Tennis, Instant Speedway, Instant Trotting and Instant Velodrome.
SPORTS COVERED BY BETONIC
Athletics, Australian Rules, Badminton, Bandy, Baseball, Basketball, Boxing, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, Esports, Floorball, Football, Formula 1, Futsal, Gaelic Sports, Golf, Greyhounds, Handball, Horse Racing, Ice Hockey, MMA, MotoGP, Motorsports, Politics, Pool, Rowing, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker, Specials, Speedway, Squash, Table Tennis, Tennis, Volleyball, Water Polo, Winter Sports
DEPOSITS AND WITHDRAWALS
Betonic has integrated and works with a wide variety of payment instruments. The most relevant one, worth mentioning here is Interac which any player from Canada would be familiar with.
Furthermore, you can also use cryptocurrencies to make payment and request withdrawals. At the moment, 8 different cryptocurrencies are supported.
The minimum amount you can deposit using Interac is C$15.
The minimum amount you can withdraw is C$20.

You will now see all the available payment methods – pick the one you would like to use and you will be taken to the next page, where you can complete your payment.
Depending on the payment method of your choice, you might need to add some additional information. For example, your bank details, province and other personal information needed to complete your transaction.
HOW TO WITHDRAW FROM BETONIC?
You can initiate a withdrawal from the “withdrawals” page, which can be found in the account management menu. Press on your profile icon (in the top right corner of the screen) to bring up the menu in question.

- Before requesting a withdrawal, you will need wager your initial deposit amount at least 5 times with the odds of 1.60 (-167) or higher
IDENTITY VERIFICATION (KYC) REQUIREMENTS
It is highly likely that when you submit your first withdrawal request, you will be asked to verify your identity. You shouldn’t worry about this, as it is a standard process carried out by all sportsbook operators. It is a lot easier than it may sound and should not take up a lot of your time.
Documents that you may be asked to provide are:
- Passport / ID photo
- Photo of your bank card
- Proof of address

At the moment Betonic doesn’t have any official Android or iOS applications, so their sportsbook platform would be primarily available via their mobile website. Nevertheless, a mobile website can still be very well-optimized and work as good as an application would.
We did several test runs of their website using four different smartphones: an iPhone 8, an iPhone 15, Samsung Galaxy S10 and Google Pixel 7.
We intentionally used two somewhat outdated devices, as we understand that not everyone has access to all the latest models.
One of the first things you might notice is that Betonic’s user interface design is pretty simple. There are no flashy icons or extravagant floating menus. Instead, most interface elements are static and most menus are just simple lists with links. This design choice offers several advantages. It minimizes loading times and enhances compatibility with older devices, ensuring a smooth user experience.
Let’s also take a quick look at how things work under the hood. When you first visit the mobile website, most static interface elements (icons, frames, etc.) will be cached by your browser. Now, every time you move between pages, those UI elements will simply be loaded from memory instead of being downloaded every single time. This approach significantly reduces loading times and conserves data usage, which can be crucial, especially when utilizing mobile data connections.
Finally, let’s look at compatibility – Betonic’s mobile website worked without any issues on all devices we tested it with. This means that regardless of your choice of phone, you will likely have a similar experience.
Now, let’s explore the user interface, its various elements, and features to understand how they a;; come together.
First, let’s start with the header navigation menu, located at the top of the website. This is a horizontal scrolling menu, which lists all currently available sports. However, its appearance varies depending on the section of the website you are in. In the live betting section, each sport will have a number next to it, this number will show how many games are currently open for betting.
The same menu will not have these indicators when you are in the pre-match section.
The second thing you will likely be using quite a lot is the account management menu. You can bring it up by pressing on your profile icon (depicting a person) located in the top right corner of the screen. This menu provides links to pages for deposits and withdrawals, profile information, promotions and bonuses, as well as your betting and transaction history.
Finally, let’s draw our attention to the betting interface. When you open a game, the top section of the page will be occupied by a scoreboard (if it is a live game) or with a summary of the upcoming game (if it is pre-match).
All available betting markets will be displayed right underneath the scoreboard / summary section. At the top, you will see a horizontal list of market categories which you can scroll through. The number you can see next to each category shows the number of markets that are currently open for that specific category.
When you pick an outcome, it will be added to your betslip, which will appear as a notification at the bottom of your screen. Press on the betslip notification to bring up the actual betslip menu. The layout here should be familiar to most experienced sports bettors – you can remove selections, alter your stake and switch between different possible bet types.
BETONIC DESKTOP SITE OVERVIEW
A functional and user-friendly interface design is usually a good sign when it comes to betting sites, as this will enable you to find exactly what you need in just several steps, markets and selections should be clearly visible and understandable while the betslip part should show all details relevant to your bet and additional options and/or features if applicable. Below are some examples of how Betonic’s online sports betting section looks like.
Let’s start by dividing the website into four distinct sections which we can then review one by one in more detail.
- Header section: it serves as the main navigation hub that you will use to move between the different sections of the website. This is also where you can check your current balance, initiate deposits, and access additional account management pages, including your profile, transaction history, and withdrawals.
- Right-Side Menu: positioned on the right side of the screen, this vertical menu lists all available sports and provides a concise list of the most popular tournaments. Each sport has a clear indication of the number of available games. Clicking on a sport opens a drop-down menu with a list of leagues and competitions. Selecting a league or competition displays all the games from that competition in the center of your screen.
- Betting Interface: the central portion of your screen houses the main betting interface. Here, you would initially see either the most popular upcoming games or all games from a tournament that you’ve selected. If you click on an individual game, you will see a full list of all available markets along with a summary of the game and a scoreboard (if available).
- Betslip Section: the left side of the screen is where your betslip is hosted. When you pick a selection you want to bet on – it will be added to your betslip. You can enter your stake, add or remove more selections and select an applicable combination or system bet type if you have two or more selections.
BETONIC AFFILIATE PROGRAM
Betonic has an affiliate program which is managed by “Lucky Affiliates”. Pretty much anyone can submit an application, so if you feel like promoting their brand – go for it. Additionally, Lucky Affiliates manage a number of other brands, which you will have access to if your application is accepted.
