FEZBET BOOKMAKER REVIEW
Fezbet haven’t been around for a long time, they opened their sportsbook back in the beginning 2020. Nevertheless, if you are from Canada and you are into sports betting – this might be the right place for you and we will tell you why.
Since we are in no rush, let’s cover the basics. Fezbet holds a valid Antillephone N.V license (No 8048/JAZ2020-001), which allows them to legally accept Canadian players and facilitate online sports betting activities. This license doesn’t cover running land-based shops, so you will likely not see them any time soon. Still, Fezbet have done a good job at tailoring their services for the local audience – starting from payment solutions all the way to UIs and promotions.
In any case, we are going to cover each aspect of their sportsbook service in detail to help build an understanding if this is the right place for you.
As a newcomer, creating a new account is the first thing that you need to do in order to get started. Fezbet will not waste any of your time on this step – you will need to fill out a fairly standard registration form and that’s it. The information required from you in the form is: your email address, phone number, name, physical address, desired username and desired password.
As soon as you complete and submit the form, you are good to go. You are not required to verify or confirm anything at this point. Even though you would need to do it later, at this point you can dive right in. The entire registration process will take under 2 minutes to complete.
WELCOME OFFER (LINK!!!)
We were pleasantly surprised by the number of various sports promotions available at Fezbet, however for now let’s focus strictly on the welcome offer. All new players from Canada are welcomed with a 100% bonus up to C$150. The minimum deposit needed to activate the offer is C$30 and in order to receive your bonus funds, you need to reach out to support upon making your first deposit. Before being able to claim the bonus you need to play through the full amount of your first deposit with the odds of 1.50 or more.
Wagering conditions for the bonus itself are as follows: 6x rollover, odds of 2.00 or higher for each bet, odds of 1.50 or higher for each selection in accumulator bets. The bonus is valid for 30 days.
As you might have already seen, support plays quite a significant role at Fezbet, since a lot of bonuses and promotions must be obtained with support’s help. Having said that, it is important for support to be available around the clock, which they are – live chat is open 24/7. Alternatively, there is also an email address, which responds within 45 minutes.
In order to give you the best possible understanding of what you may find here, we decided to get in touch to support ourselves. We used live chat on two separate occasions, asking questions about betting rules and bonus conditions. The waiting time in both cases was under 1 minute and the representatives we got to chat with were quite knowledgeable. Having that in mind, we can definitely recommend giving them a shout whenever you need any help.
BETTING MARKETS AND ODDS
Fezbet offer betting on over 30 different sports and this number will surely increase going forward. Since there are some many sports, we will not be going over all of them. Instead, we will pick one and focus on it. Since we want to show you how things are in reality and what you will actually see here, let’s take some real-life examples from hockey.
At any given day you will have around (sometimes more) 200 different ice hockey games to choose from. This includes small and big tournaments from all over the world and, of course, all local Canadian and US ones are here as well. On an average each game will have around 170 markets open for betting. For example, several upcoming Canadian OHL league games we were looking at, all had 167 markets per game. Each game also has a variety of combination and period markets available.
Finally, let’s take a quick look at the live betting section. Fezbet covers up to 50 hockey games per day, however the number may vary depending on the season. A single live game will have around 150 markets open as it progresses, betting is usually open until the last seconds of the game. Having that in mind, you can already see that there is no shortage of betting opportunities here when it comes to ice hockey.
In addition to the regular pre-match and live betting segments – Fezbet also has a pretty rich virtual betting section. While most sportsbook operators usually limit their virtuals section to just greyhounds and horse racing, Fezbet has much more than that. You can choose between several different football games, basketball, tennis, table tennis and motorsports. The usual greyhounds and horses are, of course, also available.

PROMOTIONS AT FEZBET
Fezbet have a lot of offers for existing players, not only new ones and by “a lot” we actually mean it. In fact, they probably have more promotions than most sportsbooks we’ve ever reviewed.

OTHER PROMOTIONS AT FEZBET
There are so many different offers that existing players can take advantage of that we don’t even know where to start. You will be getting weekly deposit bonuses, free bets, stake refunds, accumulator bet boosts and a number of other things, all of which we will tell you about below.
WEEKLY DEPOSIT BONUS

Reach out to support in order to claim the bonus once you meet the above conditions.
The bonus has to be wagered 8 times with the odds of 2.00 per bet and 1.50 per selection for multi-bets. This has to be done within 30 days.

FREE BETS AND STAKE REFUNDS
Fezbet often adds new offers and removes old ones, the promotions we mentioned above are the ones that are consistently available. Nevertheless, some noteworthy ones among the frequently recurring offers are: multi-bet stake refunds, specific league (NFL, NHL, NBA, etc.) free bets and Formula 1 bonuses.
When it comes to Fezbet and mobile devices, there is a popular question, which we would like to answer from the get- go. Is there an iOS and / or Android app? The short answer is – no. The detailed answer is – no and it is not really needed. Et us give you a quick run-through of the mobile sportsbook and tell you why we believe that is doesn’t really require an app.
Let’s start off from the technical bit – as always, we use an iPhone 6 and a Samsung Galaxy A8 to see how the mobile website works with outdated devices. In the case with Fezbet, we had absolutely no issues using any feature available there. Despite being obviously outdated, both phones were able to quickly load different pages and interfaces without crashing or freezing. Of course, it is needless to say that newer devices also had absolutely no issues.
Good performance is achieved thanks to how the website is built – all static page elements are saved in your browser’s cache and are loaded when you open a page. This means that when you move between pages or interact with UIs, their visual components are not repeatedly downloaded. Having that in mind, it is not at all obvious that an app would improve performance in any notable way.
Finally let’s also have a look at the interface, different menus and various sections of the website. Unlike the technical part – UX has quite a lot of room for improvement. For some reason the mobile website doesn’t give you access to the full range of available sports – you can choose between 10 spots, when on the desktop version you will have over 30. Also, there is no indication of how many games are currently available for each sport, so the only way to find out is by opening them one by one. Luckily, it gets a bit better once you move over to a sport and browse the available games. Each game has a clear indication of how many markets are currently open for betting, which gives a better overview of the current offer.
FEZBET 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 Fezbet’s online sports betting section looks like.
The desktop version of Fezbet doesn’t really stand out in any notable way, however that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. They make good use of most industry-wide best practices, so their design is clean and intuitive. Unlike the mobile version, the desktop website gives you access to the full range of available sports. It is also worth mentioning that by default you will be directed to the mobile website even if you are on a desktop computer or a laptop. If you want to access the actual desktop version – you will need to use the direct link.
FEZBET AFFILIATE PROGRAM
Fezbet has an affiliate program, for those of you who are not familiar with the term – you can refer new players and earn a percentage of the revenue. This affiliate program is managed by “Mate Affiliates”, who you will be interacting with in case you feel like giving it a try.
HOW IT WORKS?
In order to get started, you need to submit an application – go to the Mate Affiliates (button below) website and open the registration page. The registration form will require your basic contact details and some information about how you are planning to promote Fezbet. It may take a couple of days for your application to be reviewed, so don’t worry if you won’t get a response immediately. If you are approved, an affiliate manager will reach out to you to discuss the conditions of your upcoming partnership.
