The award for the most uninspired brand name goes to…
At the time of writing this review, JeffBet is new to me. Unlike countless other sites I have reviewed here, I was not previously a member of the site. I don’t even recall seeing the brand name or the logo, the latter of which is giving me old-school Unibet vibes.
The site is run by ProgressPlay Limited, a brand that’s perhaps best known for its online casinos. It’s not part of the big sports betting brands like Entain and Flutter, but it’s still a huge operator. It’s licensed, it’s regulated, and as the following review shows, it has a lot to offer in the bonus and betting department.
£30 in free bets is up for grabs for all new JeffBet members.
To qualify, you must be a new player aged 18 or over. You also need to make a qualifying bet of at least £10, and this must go on odds of 1.5 or higher. Once you have met this requirement, you’ll be given a £30 free bet.
The £30 bet must also be placed on odds of at least 1.5, and the stake is not returned. So, if you stick £30 on an evens bet and it wins, you’ll get £30 back. The wagering requirement is only 1x and you have 7 only days to use this bet.
Skrill and Neteller deposits are excluded from this bonus and there is a maximum conversion of £200, so keep this in mind when using your free bet.
You can withdraw real money funds while this bonus is active but doing so will void the bonus.
JeffBet has a rewards program and a store. Collect points in the former and spend them in the latter. It also offers the occasional cashback reward, as well as bet refunds, free bets, and giveaways.
There’s always a lot happening here, so be sure to check the promotions section to see what’s on offer before you make a deposit.
Software and Betting Options
I’m not a big fan of the way JeffBet is laid out on desktop. It looks okay on mobile and works really well, too. On desktop, it’s lacking and wasn’t a joy to use. There’s a lot happening on modern sportsbooks and if the software isn’t neatly arranged and it’s not easy to find what you’re looking for, it makes for a frustrating experience.
It’s far from the worst I have seen, but it’s a far cry from the likes of bet365 and needs a lot of work.
On the betting side of things, JeffBet has a good selection of sports, including football, rugby (league and union), esports, and cricket. US sports like American football, baseball, and basketball also have good coverage.
If you like obscure sports, you might be left wanting here. It’s not one of those epic sites that cover every possible sport, league, and event. It tends to stick with the main ones, but that will please the majority of players.
There are in-play betting options, though they tend to be limited to simple markets, with the less popular events only offering basic Win/Draw/Lose and Under/Over markets.
JeffBet has a live chat feature that’s open to all players, regardless of whether you have an account or not. It usually takes just a few minutes for the customer support team to respond, and they are available around the clock.
I am actually writing this review on Christmas Eve, and I messaged them after 11 PM. Yes, I got a response, and no, I don’t have a life.
You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org, but I would advise against it. I didn’t try to email them personally, but it seems to be one of those catch-all addresses that apply across many sites. I haven’t had the best experience with those addresses.
Deposits and Withdrawals
JeffBet accepts a wide variety of payment options, including Visa, MasterCard, Paysafecard, PayPal, Neteller, and Skrill. However, as noted when discussing the JeffBet welcome bonus, you can’t collect the bonus if you use Skrill.
The minimum deposit and withdrawal requirements differ by method, but most of them are fixed at £10, with a couple of options (ecoPayz and MuchBetter) requiring £20.
Babaloo Limited is the service provider and ProgressPlay is the operator, so one of these will likely appear on your statement. I feel like it’s worth mentioning, as I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve found an unrecognisable payment, googled it, and eventually found the name of a casino operator or connected payment provider.
Withdrawals are not instant, but the processing time is only 1 day, so you won’t need to wait long.
That’s tolerable and acceptable. What’s not, is that withdrawals are subject to a fee of 1%, with a maximum charge of £3. It’s not as much as the fixed £2.50 charged by Jumpman Gaming sites like Aztec Wins, but it’s still frustrating to see such a fee.
Verdict: JeffBet Review
JeffBet is a good site with a few niggling issues. These include software that isn’t great on desktop, limited betting options, and a relatively small selection of sports. The withdrawal fee is never a welcome sight either.
It’s only 1%, and it has a £3 cap, so it’s not going to have a major effect. However, I haven’t given any other site a pass for having a withdrawal fee, so I can’t let JeffBet off the hook either.
Yes, JeffBet has licenses from both the United Kingdom and Malta. The former is the only one you need to focus on as a UK player.
JeffBet is owned and operated by ProgressPlay Limited, whose registered address is in Malta.
Yes, and at the time of writing, using PayPal to deposit will not exclude you from the welcome bonus. However, that is subject to change, so make sure you check the terms and conditions in advance.
Live chat is available 24/7.
