The latest addition to the long list of betting establishments that cooperate with us, is the industry leader in the Russian Federation. 1XBet was founded in Moscow in 2007 and registered in Cyprus. It is fully licensed by the Russian FTS. In comparison with other similar companies, it is a fairly new one as its online presence begun in 2014. Officially, the name is Bookmaker Pub LLC and it is operated by 1X Corp N.V. which is owned by Sergey Karshkov and Roman Semiokhin.
The scope of their operations is focused on the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). However, after 2015, they have expanded to Europe, Asia and Africa.
As per their mantra, their goal is to promote sports in the Russian Federation. Under this notion, their site offers a total of 26 sports, all of them practiced in Eastern Europe. For example, an unusual choice offered (not available in other bookmakers as a standalone) pertains only to weight lifting events. That being said, all the major sports are available for everyone, while the range of markets includes 1X2, handicaps, Over/Under, Odd/Even, Double Chance, Both teams to score, goal scoring options, half time/full time, home/away and sport/event specific.
The site itself is quite fast and reliable, while everything is configurable. You can choose between any of the US, UK, Decimal, Indonesian, Malaysian or Hong King type of odds' display. The interface is easy to the user, while the page is mobile friendly. However, there is an app for smartphones. Interestingly, this app is not offered for direct download through any of the usual platforms like google play. It is to be downloaded directly from the site and then a download link is sent to the phone via QR code. Quite an unusual process.
This is the telling characteristic of this bookmaker. A very popular option that allows their clients to place bets even when they do not have available funds in their account. The bet can be funded up to the point that the event begins. Understandably, the option is not available for live betting.
Overall, 1XBet is a reliable, trustworthy and fair bookmaker. The odds are quite competitive, the limits fairly high and the number of markets ample enough to cover the needs of both novice and professional bettors. There is also an online casino and other gambling options available, making the company a full service establishment. One that is worth a try.
