ComeOn Sportsbook Review

One of the most refreshing and yet terrifying things about the sport betting industry is the introduction of new sports books. Refreshing in that every once in a while you get the next bet365 to come and really shake the industry up; terrifying because they could be the next scam artists to do people out of thousands of pounds.

ComeOn are one of few who have managed to really break into the industry and provide their users with not only solid sportsbook but also casino and poker options as well. The company were only granted their trading license in 2011, and are still relative minnows in the industry. But their steps over this short timescale have been impressive, to say the least.

Promotions

Often with smaller bookmakers you will find compromises in the welcome or promotions section. It makes sense really, as there is likely limited cash at first to really put aside for this. But ComeOn has come out fighting with a welcome bonus that can see you claim up to £25 from both their sportsbook and casino.

There is, however, a catch. Of which we will explain. First up you can register your account and any amount between £10 and £25 will be credited as a bonus for you to clear. In order to do so you need to wager through both the deposit and bonus amount 6 times before the bonus is credited to your account.

Here’s the catch! Your bets need to be placed as a combo bet, which is basically an accumulator bet to you and me. You need to include two or more selections and your odds nee to equate to 1.5 or greater. All bets made not meeting these criteria will not count towards your bonus clearance. Any withdrawals made within 30 days of opening your account will void any reaming bonus amount.

‘All about darts’

It’s pretty acceptable for younger sports books to contain reduced number of sports that they offer. They simply don’t have the resources that the more established rooms have so need to consolidate in some places, with sports being just that. It’s for that exact reason why we were delighted to hear that ComeOn had included darts into its initial portfolio.

We are going to be brutally honest and state that they don’t offer the widest ranges of darts markets. It’s hard to not compare them to other established brands, but essentially that’s who they are going against, so we feel it’s important to do so, whilst offering a little leeway.

What you will get is coverage for the majority of the higher profile leagues and competitions. All of the World Championships, Grand Prix’s and even European events are on offer, along with the prestigious Premier League.

Once into the competition you will find that the market coverage is relatively in-depth. You get handicap betting, over/under markets, outright winner and the 3 way money line (which is essentially just the Win-Draw-Win market for the Euro bettors amongst you.

One thing that did catch our eye from within the darts section is that their odds were very competitive. They never actually had the industries best price on any game that we checked, but more often than not they were never far off. In terms of consistency – and bearing in mind the small sample we have tested – we would suggest that they are right up there in terms of their pricing across the board.

Other markets

It’s been really impressive to see how such a young company has managed to acquire so many sports and markets in their portfolio. More often than not these ‘infant’s’ in the industry have just a handful of the larger markets but ComeOn have already included the likes of handball, motor racing, cycling, speedway, boxing, volleyball, floorball, badminton, Aussie rules and surfing, to come together with all of the bigger markets.

It’s a really solid range of sports on offer all of which adding a reasonable amount of depth to their site. Granted, the bigger sport such as your soccer, tennis, golf and US sports make up the bulk of the site, but a good mix is on there for those of you who like a bit of a punt on something different.

Our Verdict of ComeOn

Overall we must say that we were pleasantly surprised with ComeOn. It’s a young sportsbook and that’s very noticeable in all honesty. The sports are there, but market coverage is sketchy with some sports.

Darts has a reasonable coverage and we have been informed that the sport was barely covered only twelve months ago, so their expansion has been pretty good. Honestly though, it’s not a site we would ever call our darting home; not as it stands, anyway. It’s exciting to see where they can run with the sport and hopefully, as they start to expand, they will provide a more comprehensive marketplace for darts and really push some of the more established names.
