TonyBet will be an unfamiliar name to many UK punters. The Estonian based bookmaker want that to change as they are embarking on a real period of growth. To reach the number of users they want, TonyBet have created a well rounded betting product with a tempting welcome bonus which we have detailed in our TonyBet review.
When TonyBet sold the Lithuanian part of their business in 2016 you would be forgiven for thinking that they were in trouble. Afterall, this is a bookmaker which was founded in Lithuania by a Lithuanian politician and entrepreneur, Antanas Guoga. Known as Tony G during his time as a poker player, Guoga believed that he could set up a bookmaker to challenge the big boys and went about trying to achieve some pretty lofty goals.
In the early days, TonyBet focused only on acquiring users in Lithuania and the United Kingdom. They had a certain amount of success with that approach but took the decision to sell the entirety of their Lithuanian facing business to Betsson for a reported €6 million. Rather than heralding the beginning of the end for TonyBet, it was merely a change of approach with TonyBet pressing ahead to grow their business as much as possible in the UK, Estonia and a growing list of major European countries which is great news for British punters looking for a new bookie.
TonyBet have really pushed the boat out when it comes to their free bet welcome bonus for new customers. Rather than offering one simple but low value free bet offer, they have a 100% first deposit bonus up to £200 available.
The TonyBet sport welcome bonus starts by visiting their site, opening a new account and placing a first deposit. Once you wager that first deposit 10 times on any sports market (minimum odds 1.65) the bonus cash will be credited to your account which must be wagered once before it can be withdrawn.
You can read the full list of terms and conditions of the offer on the TonyBet website but the most important thing to note is that you must enter the promo code TONY200 when prompted during the signup process.
Away from the TonyBet welcome bonus there are a host of regularly updated promotions to take advantage of. You'll get money back on selected losing football bets if no goals are scored in a match with No Goals No Loss, free bets up for grabs with every 3-pointer scored with the NBA In-Play offer and free bet insurance if one selection of your five-fold + football accumulator lets you down.
The TonyBet logo is a colourful one including purple and red but that approach hasn't translated to the website which is primarily shades of grey and white. Blue, green and orange are used to highlight specific pieces of information but the bulk of the site is basically monochrome which isn't conducive to clearly displaying a large amount of information.
TonyBet certainly have a huge amount of information on their homepage including the long list of sports that they cover, events that are about to begin and current in-play betting opportunities.
Once you get a handle on how the TonyBet site works and the way they produce their information it is fairly easy to switch between different events and markets. Find your way to the event you're looking for and you'll see the list of markets is logically displayed with the aim of helping you place your bets as fast as possible.
TonyBet take bets on around 25 sports. That is more than enough to satisfy all but the most picky of punters and the depth of market coverage for events in each of those sports is impressive. You'll find a range of handicaps, score lines and time specific markets to give you more than enough choice in your attempts to profit from your betting.
The odds offered on the TonyBet sportsbook are competitive with even the biggest names in sports betting. The payouts across their sports offering is in excess of 92% so there are more than enough value bets to be sniffed out.
TonyBet don't offer live streaming as yet.
TonyBet customers have a couple of options when it comes to their mobile betting. If you prefer betting through your mobile browser, the TonyBet site works very well on any mobile device you may have. Alternatively, those who enjoy the ease of betting through mobile apps will surely be delighted by the well designed and speedy TonyBet apps that are available on iOS and Android platforms.
TonyBet have been offering their users the ability to cash out of open positions since the middle of 2016. The need to navigate to your betting history before being able to cash out is a little clunky but once you find your open positions the process of locking in profit or mitigating losses is very quick and easy.
TonyBet is fully licensed and regulated by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission. This should be a real cause for comfort for potential TonyBet customers as the Gambling Commission ensures bookies can afford the payouts on every bet they lay and that they treat their customers within the confines of a well set out code of conduct.
If you have any more questions about the way that TonyBet operate or encounter and issues during your time as their customer it is possible to get in touch with them via email and telephone.
