In-play Betting at NetBet – The Complete Review

Without question, NetBet live betting arena is one of the more outstanding features of the betting site as a whole. Not only is it bold, aesthetic and just about as user-friendly as they come, but the in-play graphics are top-notch, allowing you to get close the action like never before. To add to this, customers have the option to use the much-loved live cash-out feature, the live scores and stats services, and can also choose from thousands of live betting options every day. Read the full review below for the full details.

The In-play Arena 9

Just the same as in the pre-match betting area, there are a whole host of betting options on offer here. At times you’ll find as many as 200 fixtures available for live betting every day; each fixture offers a good number of bets, however for all the most high-profile fixtures you’ll find some of the more exciting, obscure markets. Punters have the option to choose from around 15 different sports markets, which include all the common favourites such as football, tennis and cricket, and also a few more less widely-followed sports such as bowls and table tennis.

Regarding payout prices, odds tend to range from around 87% – 92%, meaning that the numbers here aren’t the best, but definitely competitive. For the major sports such as football and tennis it must be said that you can find better prices elsewhere, most notably at Betfair or Paddy Power, as they are known for consistently offering the very best numbers for the most popular sports. However, for some of the less widely-followed options such as table tennis or bowls, NetBet’s numbers tend to be a little better.

No Live Streams

Unfortunately, the NetBet betting site does not offer live streams as part of its service. We’ve been given the inside tip that this is something the company is looking to add in due course, however, for the meantime, we recommend checking out Coral, who offer streams on well over 2,000 fixtures per week, or Betway, who also have great live streaming capabilities.

Live Scores and Stats

The most outstanding feature to speak of, not just in regard to live betting, but with the NetBet betting site per se, is the in-play graphics. The live ticker is, without question, one of the bets we’ve seen. For football, for instance, not only can you see when a side is on the attack or when they’ve been forced back into defence but by clicking on the exclamation mark icon you can review all the nitty gritty details such where stadium the fixture is taking place, how the pitch is holding up, who’s referring and what the weather is like. These are extra features that are not so often seen at other betting sites and something that makes the NetBet live betting platform stand out from the rest. In addition, there’s also a comprehensive stats centre that lets you go back and review an entire catalogue of important data, which can really help you conduct important research and place live bets with more conviction.

Very Good, but Room for Improvement

After having taken a good look at the NetBet live betting service it’s safe to say that we were satisfied, but there’s definitely room to improve. The number of fixtures available for in-play betting per day is very good, the variety of bets available per fixture is, overall, very good, and the in-play graphics seen here really some of the best around. However, when it comes to odds prices, and in particular, live streaming, it’s clear that the operator has some work to do.
