BETROPHY BOOKMAKER REVIEW

REVIEW SUMMARY

OVERVIEW

Betrophy is a brand that not too many Canadian sports fans are familiar with, however it is rapidly gaining popularity. This is exactly why we decided to take some time and prepare a proper review for you to learn what they are all about.

Betrophy is an international gaming brand that also operated in the US and a number of other countries. They hold a valid Antillephone N.V license (No 8048/JAZ2010-010), so they can legally provide online sports betting services to players in Canada. Of course, a sportsbook is not the only thing you will find here, however that will be the main subject of our review. Before we go any further, we are glad to state that all popular Canadian payment methods are supported and all transactions are free and instant.

REGISTRATION

The registration process is surprisingly quick and easy – you only need to submit one sign-up form and you will be good to go. The form itself asks you for details like your name, email address, phone number and your desired password. You will be all set as soon as you submit the form and there is nothing you need to confirm or verify at this stage. Obviously, at a later stage you might need to add your physical address and verify your phone number, this is a standard procedure and there’s no going around it. You can also sign in using your Google or Facebook accounts. Regardless of what registration option you go with – creating a new account will take under 2 minutes.

WELCOME OFFER

As you may have already expected – as a new player, you will get a welcome bonus to help you get started. The welcome offer applies to your first deposit and is a 100% bonus up to C$150. In order to activate this bonus, use the WELCOME100 bonus code when making your first deposit.

Now that we know what the offer consists of, let’s see what are the applicable conditions. The minimum deposit you need to make in order to claim the bonus is C$15, which is considerably smaller compared to some other local sportsbooks. Your bonus funds are valid for 21 days and have to be wagered 16 times before they can be converted into real money balance. In order to wager your bonus funds, each bet has to be placed with the odds of 1.80 or higher.

SUPPORT

There are two ways to get in touch with the customer care team at Betrophy: live chat and email. Both work 24/7. In order to give you an accurate overview of how the support service works, we’ve got in touch with them ourselves. On several occasions we used the live chat function to ask general knowledge questions about promotions and betting rules. The waiting time was always under one minute, so we didn’t have to wait at all. The representatives we chatted with were obviously native English speakers, which made the entire communication a lot easier. To sum things up, the support service at Betrophy is quick and on-point, so don’t hesitate to reach out to them in case you will need any assistance.

BETTING MARKETS AND ODDS

Betrophy covers over 25 different sports and that number will definitely only increase going forward. Since Canada is one of their main focus regions – you will likely find exactly what you are looking for. As always, to give you the best possible understanding of what you can expect to see here, we would like to show you real-life examples.

We thought it would make sense to use hockey, because that probably is one of the main things you are interested in hearing about. At any given day you will see around 200 hockey games to choose from, this includes the NHL and other top-tier leagues, as well as other tournaments like the Canada Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, WHL and OHL. The number of available markets will vary depending on the league. High-profile games will have between 80 and 10 markets open for betting. It is also worth noting that most games have a pretty decent variety of various combinations and special bets.

Let’s also not forget about live betting – there are usually around 80 live hockey games covered throughout the day. A single game will have up to 200 markets traded, betting is open until the last seconds of the game and cashout is also available.

This section features over 20 different games, which are supplied by Kiron and Leap. In addition to the usual horse races and greyhounds you will also see motorsports (Nascar) and ice hockey (WHL), which isn’t something you see every day.

PROMOTIONS AT BETROPHY

Betrophy won’t overwhelm you with the number of their promotions and bonuses, there are just three main offers. One of them is a welcome bonus for new players and the other two are a free bet and an additional deposit bonus.

The minimum deposit required to activate this offer is C$15 and the bonus funds will be valid for 21 days. You will need to wager the bonus 16 times with the odds of 1.80 or higher, before it is converted into real money balance. We do agree that it is quite a high wagering requirement to fulfill.

BETROPHY MOBILE

Mobile optimization plays a vital role in the success of any product and that also applies to sportsbooks. Betrophy are seemingly aware of that because their website is exceptionally well optimized for mobile device. Even older and outdated phones are coping relatively well, so let us tell you a bit more about this.

First of all, let’s take a look at some of the technical aspects. We tested Betrophy with several different devices and it is probably obvious that newer ones had no issues, but what we were surprised with is that older ones didn’t have them either. We used an iPhone 6 and a Samsung Galaxy A8 and surprisingly enough both phones had seemingly no issues and gave an overall pleasant user experience. This is likely due to how the website’s front-end is built – it re-uses all static page elements whenever possible. Such an approach allows your device to download most UI elements on your first visit and then simply load them whenever you move between pages.

Now we can also take a look at the interface from a usability and functionality standpoint. It is generally quite easy to locate the sportsbook section, however the website seems to be generally lacking a “sports overview” page. Also, when you open up the list of available sports, there seems to be no indication of how many games are currently offered for each one, however such indicators are present when you move over to live betting.

On the bright side, once you pick a sport and go over to the list of games – all games have a clear indication of how many markets are open for betting. This gives you a good insight into what you can choose from and saves you time, which you would have otherwise spent opening each game one by one.

Finally, we’d like to quickly mention the “BetBuilder” feature which is also available in the mobile version. BetBuilder is a feature that allows combining selections from the same game into a multi-bet and at the moment it looks like only football (soccer) supports this. Once you open up the pre-match betting section for football – you will see a “Build a Bet” tab. Open that tab to start building bets.

BETROPHY 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 Betrophy’s online sports betting section looks like. 

The desktop website in general is not all that much different from any other friendly neighborhood sportsbook. It is debatable whether this is a good thing or not, because some of you may prefer to see an innovative and high-tech approach. From our perspective it is better safe than sorry – they did all the usual things, but did them well.

The interface is informative and gives you as many details as possible, when possible. You can see how many games are offered in each sport and how many markets are open for betting in each game. All that is visible without having to open any additional pages or drop-down menus.

There’s one cool thing that Betrophy has, which other sportsbooks usually don’t – their live betting section has several different layouts. You can switch between those layouts based on what you are used to.
