Melbet (India) Review
The Melbet site offers everything you would expect from a modern bookmaker. It lacks some of the promotions and markets of our top-rated betting site, 10 Cric but is still a solid option for online betting. Here is how the site looks –
The home page has everything you need for a quick bet including the day’s markets and the latest live betting matches. If you are logged in you can bet directly from the home page. Just click or tap on the odds you see and those will go straight into your betslip. From there you can add your stake and place your bets.
Where the Melbet site stands out is in its own design. There is a familiarity to the layout but the design seems to be there own.
For example, the desktop home page has more than the 1×2 markets showing for each of the games. They have a long list of markets than others and it looks like there is a lot of matches on the home page.
This makes it al to easier for getting your bets on as most of the day’s matches are available in one place. For football betting, they have instant access to the goals betting markets for the games of the day. There is also the Melbet football acca of the day which is pre-picked and has a 10% winnings boost – very nice.
Melbet is an excellent cricket betting website. They have a good choice of markets and get prices up nice and early. At the time of writing, October, they had prices up for the IPL winner and the IPL top 2 – No other sportsbook had this priced up yet.
We always like early prices for major events as it gives you the opportunity yo get some value early. With our IPL betting stats we’ve looked at the previous years’ events to make early predictions on the next event. Having more than the winners market priced up is a great help to us.
When the main IPL event starts we are expecting to see more markets priced up early by Melbet. This could mean they are the main bookmaker of our IPL betting picks if this is the case. They will also be offering promotional bonuses for the event as well as others.
Under the promotions tab, you’ll find a good number of promotions covering new customers and existing customers and for sports and casino. We’ve covered the sports welcome bonus above, here are the other promotions we found when writing our review (Promotions are all subject to change and terms and conditions, check melbet.com/promotions for their current offers).
Casino welcome bonus
The casino bonus is called “Melbet Rocket Launch” and for some reason is still offered in Euro’s even though the sports bonus is in rupees! You can get up to €1,750 as a bonus plus 290 free spins! Amazing!
There are some terms to qualify for this offer, here they are in simple terms
You must opt into the casino bonus at registration
You must not have already claimed the sports bonus
Your first deposit must be at least €10
You must have a verified phone number on your account
You must not have claimed the bonus already
Further full terms are available on the site when registering
This offer is available to all customers who have opted in to receive bonuses. It means if your accumulator (multiple bets) loses by 1 result you will get your money back as a free bet. This is also known as accumulator insurance with other companies, but Melbet is the only company offering this in India at the time of writing.
Here’s a simple guide to qualifying bets
Place an accumulator of at least 7 selections
Each selection must be at odds of at least 1.7 or higher
It covers but pre-match and live in-play bets
If one leg is cancelled or reimbursed the offer does not apply
Examples of how it works
Correctly placed bet
For this example, we are taking a football bet of 7 matches as follows
1,000 bet on
Manchester United 1.8
Manchester City 1.9
Real Madrid 2.1
West Ham United 4
If all 7 teams win then we get the winnings
If 6 win and 1 loses then we’d get 1,000 back in our account as a free bet
If 2 or more teams lose we would not get anything back
If any of the odds were under 1.7 then we would not qualify for this offer
Where Melbet positions themselves in the market is with higher odds and crypto deposits. Their odds do see strong when we have looked so it is worth checking them out before you place your bets.
As far as crypto goes they are not the only company with such an offer. In India, there is also a 10 cric Bitcoin welcome bonus along with a couple of other companies. We are not keen on crypto deposits in general as your balance value will change depending on the price of the crypto at that point. There are also the fees associated with buying and selling crypto that you need to take into account.
If you want to make the most of the improved odds then crypto deposits are not the way to go. Fortunately, Melbet has a really good range of depositing options for you.
Here are all the available options in India
They have an excellent choice of sports to bet on too. Here is what sports you can bet on with Melbet.
We found the Melbet had an excellent level of customer service for Indian customers. The live chat facility on the website and mobile site was quick and day to use. The people on the live chat are very helpful and showed us where to find a market and helped us with registration and bonuses information.
You can find the live chat in the bottom left hand corner, it is usually a green bar. It seems to be open all day every day and we never found it to be busy of had any long waits.
There is also email support and a phone number to call if you would rather speak to someone to get assistance.
Melbet is available in over 22 different languages – more than most other sites.
As you can see that is a wide range of dialects!
Overall we really like the Melbet platform and think they are well worth checking out!
