A Complete Review of GTbets

GTbets opened their doors in 2011 to offer sports betting and casino games to patrons worldwide including most of the United States. While navigating the orange and blue design of GTbets, we quickly found a well organized and fairly expansive sportsbook. With live wagering options, plenty of sports to choose from, and the ability to bet on the ponies, GTbets clearly takes their sports betting seriously and is not “horsing around.” Sorry for the bad pun.

The casino section of GTbets was a lot more expansive than most “sports-bet-first” type sites that usually only offer a few choices to help you scratch that gambling itch. It looks like the casino section of the site was not an afterthought but something the staff at GTbets put significant time and planning into.

In this review, we’re going to dig into both of these areas of GTbets as well as anything and everything else you might want to or need to know about the site. As always, we’re not just looking for the good, but we’re looking for the bad and the ugly as well if they exist. Every site has ways they can improve, and it’s important you have this information before making a decision if you want to play at the site or not. Reviews that ignore the negatives and only focus on the positives might be great to make you feel good, but they’re useless when it comes to helping you select your new online gaming home.

The Sportsbook

The first thing that stood out about the GTbets Sportsbook is how well it was organized. It didn’t require a degree in computer science to figure out how to navigate the site, and we were able to get to the lines and bets within a couple of mouse clicks. Each betting screen follows the same flow with the sports categories along the left fold, the odds and bet options down the middle, and your selected bets along the right-hand side of the screen.

Turning your bet into a parlay, robin, teaser or If bet is done with the click of one button on the right-hand fold of the screen. If you’re able to buy points on that particular game, that option pops up right away on the right-hand side of the screen which is extremely convenient. We were big fans of the fact that you could tinker around with all of these options on the same screen and it updated potential payouts as well as the conditions needed to win. Basically, it allowed you to move into some more advanced betting options with a simplicity that we don’t often see from betting sites.

Odds were displayed initially in American (moneyline style) odds and could be changed to fractional or decimal with the click of one button. Clicking the button changed all of the odds instead of making you have to do them one at a time like some sites. Bets were also able to be sorted by number, sport, or date which also added convenience. You could also search by team names to pull up the bets you were looking for.

Overall, the biggest takeaway that we loved about GTbets was the fact that everything was laid out well and was extremely user-friendly. Our guess is they probably got a lot of users without a technical background to test the interface and continued to tweak it until they were easily able to use it. This is a huge plus as you don’t need the software making your job any harder.

Sports You Can Bet On

Like most sites, GTbets had main sports categories that expanded out when clicked to show the current listings of bets offered. Major sports that were out of season still showed up on the lists as they began offering some lines way in advance. Some sports leagues that currently had no events going on were not listed but only added when the lines were put out. This makes things a lot easier for you to sift through rather than having to go through a ton of options that are currently not available.

Here is the list of events as well as the bets that were offered at the time of the last update to this review. If you don’t see the league or division that you like to bet on, they’re most likely offered but were out of season when we last updated this review. The site allows you to look at all of the offerings without having to make an account, so feel free to pop over and check if you don’t see what you’re looking for on the list below.

  • Football
  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Cricket
  • E-sports
  • Hockey
  • Horse Racing
  • MMA
  • Rugby
  • Soccer
  • Tennis
  • Volleyball

Again, this was only the list at the time of the last update to this review. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, take a quick jump over to their site, and you can see the complete current listing without creating an account or anything like that.

One thing we didn’t see were any of the novelty style bets like betting on politics or competitive eating or anything crazy like that. It’s possible these get added in sporadically, but we were hoping to see a dedicated category or something like that. This is, of course, not a big deal as these are usually gamble type wagers, but it is nice to have complete flexibility if possible. Certainly not a deal breaker; just us being overly picky.

Types of Bets Offered

Here’s a list of the bets offered on GTbets. The smaller sports will vary on what is offered but can easily be accessed and seen from the homepage of the site.

  • Sides
  • Totals
  • Parlays
  • Teasers
  • Futures
  • Props
  • Half Times
  • Money Lines

One thing we didn’t see was pleasers and a few of the more complex betting options like rolling-if wagers and things like that. Honestly, not a big deal as the more complex bets seem to get people in trouble sometimes and do more harm than good. For some reason, people think that the more complex a bet is, the better the payouts or odds it will have. This is 100% not true.

Here are the betting limits for each of the major sports and bet types offered. These numbers are all in US dollars. These limits are a bit lower than we’ve seen on a few other sites which lead us to believe they are really targeting recreational and semi-serious sports bettors. While that is probably the case, this doesn’t mean you can’t use this site if you’re a professional. The interface alone should be reason enough or at least a great spot to shop lines.

User Interface

If you’ve read any of the above sections, you know we’ve been singing the praises of the user interface on GTbets pretty highly. This is because they clearly took the time to think about the end user and create a platform that specifically caters to their needs. Graphics wise, the site is fairly plain. If you’re looking for the full James Bond type feeling when you’re placing your bets, this isn’t the site for you. Honestly, that sort of stuff can become distracting when you’re looking to focus on getting your bets placed quickly, efficiently, and with no mistakes. Too many flashing banners and bells and whistles will do more harm than good, so we actually enjoy the simplistic graphics of the sportsbook on GTbets.

Regarding the casino section of the site, the simplistic look and easy to navigate look are all present. One thing we would like to see improvement on is that when you go to scroll through the game options, it can be tough to see where to click to use the slider because it’s blue on a blue background. Yes, we are nit-picking, but that’s what we do best :) The actual game graphics are awesome, and they did not skimp on that experience. If you want to take a look at some of the casino games, they’re available for free play without even having to sign up or create an account. The game we tried out took a few additional seconds to load, but the graphics were worth the wait.

The Casino

The casino at GTbets is clearly not an afterthought of the sportsbook but has quite a bit to offer. Slots were organized into a lot of different categories, and there were tons of different offerings to choose from. Categories included 5-Reel 3D Slots, Super Slots, Cash Grab Slots, 5-Reel Slots, and 3-Reel Slots. We didn’t count them all, but there were hundreds of offerings that were all available to be played for free without creating an account at all. Graphics were amazing and the sounds and full-experience matched. We highly recommend checking out some of the 3-D slots because they were a lot of fun. We may have taken way too long of a break playing them while writing this review :)

Slots (Tons to Choose from in Each Category)

  • 5-Reel 3D slots
  • Super Slots
  • Cash Grab Slots
  • 5-Reel Slots
  • 3-Reel slots

In addition to the slot offerings, the casino had a lot of other game offerings to help you scratch that gambling itch. These included the following:

  • High Roller Tables
  • Table Games
  • Super Video Poker
  • Video Poker
  • Pyramid Video Poker
  • Multi-Hand Video Poker
  • Specialty Games

GTbets also had something interesting that we don’t see as developed on most other sites. They had a complete dedicated section for slot and table game tournaments. While a lot of sites will have a tournament or two sporadically, it’s cool to see a fully dedicated schedule that includes freerolls (tournaments with no entry fee but you can win actual prizes and money).

Deposit and Withdrawal Options

Deposit options look pretty healthy which is great to see. No fees or anything silly like that on those. Withdrawal options were fine, not great, but not bad. The one positive that you won’t see below is that the reliability and timeliness look to be very good with this site. We did some research into forums and any customer feedback to try and look into that. The free Bitcoin withdrawal every month is nice, though, we would like to see all Bitcoin withdrawals free. Overall, banking could be improved, but it’s definitely not bad.

Customer Service

Customer support options looked great with live chat, phone, and dedicated email accounts. The only area we could see improvement on here was that the live chat had hours and was not 24/7. Granted, they are only closed six hours out of the week, so it’s really not a big deal.
