Bethard is a brand new betting site on the UK market, even though it has been available in Sweden since 2014. They offer a wide range of odds on the most popular sports, with focus being held on football. The betting site also offer a number of great services – such as live betting, results, statistics and betting from your phone.
We’ll get right into it, starting with the welcome offer waiting for you when you sign up. The bonus for new customers is a 100% bonus up to £100 on your first deposit. This means that if you create an account and then deposit £100, you’ll get a total of £200 to play for.
Your deposit bonus will be activated immediately after you’ve made a qualifying deposit of at least £10. The bonus isn’t limited to just the sports section of the site, you can use it on casino and live casino as well if you want to.
Offers and campaigns
On the Bethard betting site you’ll always find different running promotions and offers to take part of. The promotions are usually valid for a long time, and they don’t switch to new offers each week like some other casinos do. But when big matches are coming up, Bethard usually offer things such as boosted odds or risk-free bets on those specific matches.
Other than that, they seem to prefer long-running promotions. For example, when this review is written, they have a long-running offer where you can get a winning boost up to 30%.
Bethard odds and range
The odds at Bethard are provided by betting promotions. You can tell that they’ve gone for a wide range of odds, and that they’re focusing on big sports such as tennis, ice hockey and basketball. The range might not be the biggest one in comparison to other betting site, but considering how new the sit is that’s to be expected. The range has increasingly gotten bigger since the start of Bethard, so they will catch up with the big betting sites eventually. For example, Bethard has expanded their range with things like e-sports, chess and MMA since the start.
The big sports are still in focus on the site, but there is more to the site than that. There is for example one section devoted to special and different odds. In order to find it, simply head over to “specials” in the sports section, and pick a country. For each of the available countries there are different betting options, such as Norwegian tv-shows or the American presidential election. So for the player that wants to try something new, Bethard is definitely a great option!
Bethard live betting
Live betting is included in Bethard’s range, and it gives you the chance to bet on matches as they’re being played. In the live betting section, you’ll find odds for football, tennis and basketball among others. The layout for the live betting section reminds a lot of the regular betting page on the site, so placing a bet is very uncomplicated.
On every playable odds, it’s clear whether it has increased or gotten lower. This is shown with green and red arrows pointing up or down. If the odds for a match that’s being played changes they will blink once so you’ll see which odds has changed and how. That’s a great function, which makes it possible for the player to follow what’s happening.

At the moment, Bethard does unfortunately not offer live streaming on their site. But since they have widened their range a lot since the launch of the site, so it’s possible that live stream will be available soon.

Design and layout
Bethard has the same standard look to it as most betting sites does. That makes it easy to navigate, since most online players will be used to the layout. The dark background and the yellow contrasts makes the page look really stylish and clean. The choices has been done carefully, in order to make the site draw your thoughts to sports, action and the manly. It does probably attract a lot of users, especially in combination with the wide betting range.
If we’re going to say anything negative about the site, it would be that there is a bit much going on. Maybe a popup-menu would have been a better alternative than the top one, so you could just bring it out when needed to. We feel like the big menu does draw some focus away from the games, but it’s not that big of a deal. In general we do find the site to be very well-made and easily navigated.
