Marathonbet is a subsidiary of Panbet Curacao NW and has been around since 1997 which makes it one of the oldest bookmakers in existence. They hold licenses from Curacao and from the Alderney Gambling Control Commission and they are based in Brighton, UK. They are considered as one of the most reliable brand names in the industry as testified by their 1,500,000 customers over 175 countries. Interestingly they are the biggest Sportsbook in Russia.
The first thing to notice once you get in Marathonbet’s site is that it is designed solely for its main purpose. To place bets. There’s very little on that site to distract you from this. It’s the main reason it is so easy to use. Similarly, the apps available for iOS and Android devices are designed to allow access and focus on what you want to do without any other hindrances.
There are 33 sports available for betting with an adequate set of markets for each sport and event. The odds are among the most competitive ones on a consistent basis which is one of their greatest strengths, as is the fact that the average of their margin is among the lowest. A bit of a drawback is the absence of a cash out function which is a standard now for this kind of Sportsbooks, as is the lack of live streaming of the event that interests you especially if you want to bet in-play.
An interesting and unique function is the Advance Bet. This feature allows you to place future bets based on the amount you will receive as return from any bets you may have as unsettled. It allows you to save funds if you do not have enough to place new full bets.
The concept behind Marathonbet’s site is simplicity. Everything you need to place your bets and nothing more. They focus on their strong odds and markets and not on any other enticing content. It’s a unique betting experience coming from an old text style site.
