BETZEST BOOKMAKER REVIEW
Betzest officially launched in late 2018 and quickly became one of the “go-to” betting sites for thousands of Canadian sports fans. There aren’t that many reviews dedicated to Betzest available online and the ones we found were rather thin and didn’t answer all of our questions. This is exactly why we decided to make our own review – a complete and unbiased look at Betzest as a sportsbook operator. Thousands of players visit Betzest on a daily basis and there must be a good reason why their existing player base only keeps growing. We are going to look into everything that they bring to the table and how it sets them aside from other betting operators.
We can start off by saying that Betzest holds a Malta Gaming Authority license, so you can be sure they operate a legal business. Their general terms and conditions appear to fully reflect all the applicable rules that their license implies. Nevertheless, be sure to give it a read yourself if there are some specific things you might be interested in.
Another reason why we decided to feature them on our website is the fact that Canada is one of their main target regions. This means that they tailor their offers and user experience to best suit Canadian sports fans. You will be able to use all most popular local payment methods as well as have access to all most popular and relevant sporting events.
We were rather pleasantly surprised by the registration process at Betzest – they’ve made it as easy as can be. You don’t have to waste your time, as you only need to do the bare minimum in order to get started. To create a new account you will need to fill out a fairly generic registration form, where you will be asked for your name, date of birth, phone, email, address and that’s about it.
Once you complete and submit the registration form – you will be sent an email with a link you need to open in order to verify your email address. Now you are all set, you don’t have to do anything else at this stage. The entire registration process will take you around 2 minutes to complete.
Another noteworthy thing about Betzest are their welcome offers for new players. Unlike most other sportsbooks, who usually have one generic welcome bonus – Betzest have two different offers.
The first offer is applicable to all new players, who verify their mobile phones numbers and this is a C$5 no-deposit bonus. This is a perfect way to get you going if you want to give Betzest a try, but don’t want to place any bets with your actual money. Click here to find out how to claim the no-deposit bonus.
The second offer is what you can call a “regular” 100% up to C$100 welcome bonus. Again, this is applicable to all newly registered players from Canada. All you have to do is make a deposit of C$10 or more and the bonus funds will be automatically credited to your account.
Support is available 24/7 and can be reached using either the live chat functionality on the website or via email. We decided to try out their support service and approached them on several different occasions with a number of “common” questions related to billing and betting rules. Luckily all support representatives we got the chance to talk to spoke good English and were generally polite and professional. All in all, their support service is on a quite high level, so feel free to approach them if you come across any issues.
BETTING MARKETS AND ODDS
Betzest currently offer over 30 different sports and they have a generally impressive offering of available leagues and various “exotic” betting markets. Let’s take a look at some real-life examples to give you a better understanding – we are going to look at football.
The pre-match section of Betzest will have around 400 different games open for betting at any given time. Depending on the season, that number can be even double. Every single game will likely have around 120 markets available, high-profile games will have even more – the number can go up all the way to 200. The same applies to other popular sports like hockey and basketball, where you will also usually have over 100 markets per game with an impressive variety of different combinations and special bets.
Now we would like to take a moment to check out the live betting section. Again, Betzest have done a terrific job of keeping players occupied around the clock. Regardless of the time of day, you will definitely have some live betting available for you whenever you come by. The quality of available tournaments is also on a good level – all most popular football, hockey, baseball and basketball tournaments are covered in full. Throughout every game you will see over 300 different markets being offered.

Betzest is surprisingly well optimized for mobile devices, their overall design and color scheme seem to work very well together to give users a functional and stylish interface. Even though having a stylish UI is important to a certain extent – it is by no means a vital aspect of a good mobile experience. We’ve tested the mobile website with several different devices: an iPhone X, Google Pixel 2 and several older smartphones. The high-end devices obviously had no issues at all, neither did the relatively outdated ones. Most static page elements will be cached by your browser – this will significantly decrease your traffic usage and loading times when moving between pages.
The actual sports betting section will show you the number of all available games within each sport without the need to actually open the sport in question. The same applies to markets for each individual game – a total number of open markets per event is displayed on the overview page. This will allow you to identify sports and games with the most markets in the quickest possible way.
One potential downside here is the fact that Betzest only has one mobile website version and doesn’t offer a “lite” version, which would be useful for people who use really old devices. Nevertheless, we can assume that almost everyone has a relatively modern phone, so this should not be an issue in most cases.
BETZEST 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 Betzest’s online sports betting section looks like.
Betzest has a really eye-catching design, it is easily memorable and stands out compared to a lot of other sportsbooks that we can compare them with. Functionality-wise the interface is quite well put together, you can find your way to most sections of the website from pretty much any given page.
The actual betting section gives you as much information as it can possibly fit on the overview page, this saves you some time as you don’t need to do any extra browsing to find what you are looking for. Once you open up an event – you will see all markets being grouped into different categories, which you can filter them by. The only thing that is missing is perhaps a search box, to look for a market based on its name.
The live betting section also comes with an interactive scoreboard, which displays what is going on in a game in real-time. It also has information about the overall league statistics and has a full timeline of the game, so you can check every action retrospectively.
BETZEST AFFILIATE PROGRAM
Betzest also has an affiliate program, which you can sign up with to promote their services. You will get a revenue share for every new player you bring in. The payer has to make deposits and use his balance to place bets or play casino games in order for you to earn commission.
