Avabet launched in early 2021 amid a market filled with well-established bookmakers, some of which have been around for decades in one form or the other. Avabet received some media attention when they recently took on a bet of £5m for the fight between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury.

Avabet seems to offer most of the basics that you would expect from an online gambling site with a decent sportsbook and a vast market offering. Also, their Live betting is one place where they do shine.

Most bookmakers do offer a game, casino and live casino section on their site and fortunately, so does Avabet. I found more than enough slot games to satisfy most punters with all the big name developers available, such as Pragmatic, Playtech and Stakelogic.

For me, the Avabet site seems decent enough, although there are some aspects that seem unnecessarily complicated.

Avabet free bet & sign up offer

AvaBet is not just one of the freshest bookmakers out there, but they are also extremely generous. This is why all new players on the site are greeted with a £10 free bet!

I found signing up to Avabet to be quick and easy and encountered no major headaches along the way. In fact, it makes this even easier because of the link that Bojoko provides because you do not need to remember any bonus or promotional codes.

After clicking the Avabet link on Bojoko, they directed me to the Avabet landing page, where I clicked the register button from the top right of the screen. The registration process is a 3 step process and in total, took about 5 minutes to complete.

In step 1, they prompted me to choose a username, email, first and last name and to pick a password. Step 2, consisted of selecting my gender, country, address, mobile number, occupation, salary range and deposit limits. In step 3, you simply select your marketing preferences and submit your application and wait.

After the 3rd step, I received an email confirming my registration along with my username and user ID. They also informed me that before I could place any wagers or make a deposit that I would first need to submit KYC documentation.

After I passed the KYC process, I simply made a deposit, placed a wager, and then the welcome bonus was credited to my account minutes later.

In conclusion, I felt that the whole process of signing up, making a deposit and receiving my welcome offer went smoothly without any issues.

AvaBet offers players some great odds to enjoy daily, with an average payout percentage that rises up to 94%. This number can often be even higher in the most popular sports on the site, and the odds are calculated live individually by more than 300 traders. With smaller sports there can be a lot of variance when it comes to the odds.

The odds a bookmaker offers could make or break them, especially with so many bookmakers out there. Some would claim to offer the best-guaranteed odds on the market, especially on certain sports that they focus on. Avabet makes no such claims but does offer competitive odds.

For me, the odds from Avabet seemed fair when I compared it to some of the major bookmakers. I did not feel like any of the odds was particularly great, but also did not feel like I was being short-changed when accepting the odds on offer.

Often when I sign up to a bookmaker, I first change the odds to decimal. With Avabet, this was a quick process as I simply selected the gear icon just above the betslip, and then from the odds format drop-down, selected my favourite representation. Here Avabet made sure that you will have your favourite available by offering odds in fractional, decimal, American, Hong Kong, Malay and Indo.

Even though Avabet was launched only pretty recently, the betting markets that you can enjoy on the site can handle comparisons to some of the best in the industry. There are more than 50 categories to bet on, with all the UK's favourite sports from tennis to rugby.

Larger sports like football are naturally the most popular at Ava, but newer entries like esports and virtual sports are also gathering a lot of traction with players. Practically no important sports are missing from their selection, and bets on entertainment, politics and the likes of Eurovision complete a great bookmaker when it comes to betting markets.

At Avabet, you will find most of the major sports available, such as football, basketball, tennis and over 40 other sports. However, I found that there is no horse or greyhound racing available anywhere on the site. This seems like a glaring omission since it is one of the favourite sports to bet on for the average punter.

As to the variety of markets on offer, this was rather staggering in some matches. I felt that I could put a bet on every conceivable outcome in a match, especially when it came to football.

In conclusion, the markets on offer are great, however, the omission of horse and greyhound racing does not do Avabet any favours and is something that I hope they will add in the near future.

AvaBet provides players with a fantastic opportunity of cashing out early on almost all the bets you make on the site. You can recognize the bets where cash out is available from the "$" logo next to the markets where you can use the cash out option. After placing the bet simply click on the button with the logo if you want to make a cash out.

You can choose whether you want to cash out your entire bet or only make a partial cash out using the slider in the cash out pop up. The more likely your bet is to win, the larger the cash out sum on offer will be.

Live betting is naturally available at AvaBet, and the in-play options available on the site are very good. Almost all matches on the site have dozens of betting options to choose from live, and you can follow the action through a game center where meaningful stats and events of the match in question will be posted live.

The odds available in Ava's in-play are just as tasty as with pre-match bets, so you'll definitely be getting value for your money. Thanks to the vast markets available at AvaBet there is something to bet on live 24/7 in many different sports, but the most popular ones will naturally be covered best.

I thoroughly enjoy putting a last-minute bet on an in-play game and with Avabet this was an easy and enjoyable experience as a large part of the site is dedicated to live betting.

When it comes to finding a live match, Avabet offers a handy In-Play section. From the drop-down menu, you first need to select to use a classic or European view. I felt this was a bit unnecessary since either would have worked fine and not have added any confusion.

In the Overview, you can find all the current matches in a quick and handy list, which I feel like some bookmakers could also adopt. It makes finding a bet very quick, giving you just enough information to decide if you want to look into pursuing a bet or would rather move on.

In Event View, you have basically the same information as you would find in the Overview, however, now you have all the markets available as well. Also, rather handy is an event tracker located to the right of the screen, giving constant information on the game.

Additionally, the Calendar menu shows you the next 7 days of events, laid out for those that like planning and the Results menu will provide you with the outcomes of past matches in case you would like to do some research

AvaBet has currently decided not to launch their own mobile app, but this just means that you can bet on the site without clogging the memory of your device. No matter whether you're using a smart phone or tablet, Ava can be enjoyed straight through your browser.

Having the option of a mobile app would of course be nice, but nearly all the features of the desktop are available on mobile as well. The mobile version of AvaBet runs quickly, and navigating the site is simple and easy.

Avabet does not offer any dedicated mobile app, unlike some of the major players in the sports betting market, which use every platform possible to attract new customers.

Fortunately, the Avabet site works perfectly fine using a mobile browser and offers the same full functionality as the desktop site.

Safe & responsible gambling

AvaBet is committed to offering players responsible gambling, and if you are suffering from problematic gambling behavior, you should cease all playing at Ava or any other similar sites. There are plenty of links and a self-assessment test available at the bookie to help you.

Ava also offers players a lot of tools to combat problematic behavioral patterns, such as:

Like all self-respecting sites, AvaBet offers their players some great customer service options. You can contact Ava's helpful team around the clock 24/7 by using email or live chat, although you do need to have an account to use the email option.

In addition to this, the bookie has also provided answers to the most common questions you might face when playing on the site in its own FAQ section. This along with the customer service options can be found from the footer of the site.

Customer support is an area where a bookmaker either shines or they do not. There are no half measures when it comes to dealing with your patrons.

I was actually very happy in my dealings with customer support, which was always available from the chat bubble located to the bottom left of the screen.

Customer service connected to the chat that I initialised within seconds and resolved my queries just as fast. I found the operator responded fast and knowledgeable and a polite tone and even offered more help.

If you prefer to use a different medium to connect with customer support, then you could also opt to send them an email, and you can expect a prompt reply as they are available 24/7

However, if you prefer to do some digging yourself, then you could also consult the FAQ, which you can access along with all the other Help section topics from the bottom of the page.

KYC & Documents

AvaBet needs to know who's betting on their site, which is why the bookie needs to confirm your identity sometimes when making a withdrawal. This can be done easily by sending them a picture of either your passport, national id card or driving licence.

In addition to this, you may also be asked to present:

Ava is operating under a UK Gambling Commission license, which guarantees that your information is safe with them, along with tax-free winnings to all UK players of course!

Before you can make a deposit or place a bet with Avabet, you need to verify your account, which is something I would rather get out the way at the start. With some bookmakers, this could prove to be an arduous task that completely put you off the site, however, with Avabet this was as quick and painless as they could make it.

Shortly after my registration, I received an email to confirm my registration. In this email, I was notified that I would have to complete the KYC process and therefore, I immediately logged in to the site and headed to the account section by clicking my profile. In the profile section, I scrolled to the far right to the document section and started the process.

Selecting the drop-down menu, I opted to upload my driver's licence but I could have used other forms of identification such as a passport, birth certificate, EEA member identity card and a few others mentioned within the aforementioned email. For proof of address, I used a recent bank statement and here again Avabet accepts more proof of address than some of the other bookmakers. Just to mention a few, I could have used a utility bill, mortgage statement, council tax bill, and a few more.

I was rather pleased with the verification process of Avabet, which took less than an hour from start to finish.

Banking

Avabet wants to make sure that their players are always happy in all aspects of playing on the site, and money transfers are one of the most important. This is why the bookie provides all of the most used banking methods to players for both deposits and withdrawals.

The minimum deposit to Ava is only £5 (depending on your method), and all withdrawals at the site will be handled within 2-3 banking days. Deposits and withdrawals can be done without extra charges from Avabet, but your payment provider might have fees of their own.

The deposit process with Avabet went very smoothly, and I encountered no problems during the process.

From “My account”, I selected “My wallet” and thereafter the deposit option. I prefer using Visa for all my deposits and once I selected it had to enter my deposit amount, with £10 being the minimum and £10000 the maximum. After pressing submit, I simply entered my card details, and the deposit was reflected immediately.

For those not wishing to use Visa, there are other options available, which you do also find at most other bookmakers. These options are Mastercard, Skrill, Neteller, MuchBetter and Trustly. There were some omissions that I would have thought would be present, such as PayPal.

To make a withdrawal was just as easy as making a deposit, I started it from the “My Wallet” menu by selecting “Withdrawal” and then selected my preferred withdrawal method. Then it was as easy as entering the amount that I wish to withdraw, followed by confirming my card details. My withdrawal reflected in my account in less than 5 minutes, which I found to be rather impressive.

It is worth mentioning that when you are using the welcome offer, some deposit methods might be excluded from this and checking the terms of the offer is a good idea.

Depositing methods

Mastercard Visa Skrill NETELLER Trustly PayPal EcoPayz MuchBetter

Withdrawal methods

Mastercard Visa Skrill NETELLER Trustly PayPal

Withdrawal times

Mastercard 2-3 working days, Visa 2-3 working days, Skrill 2-3 working days, NETELLER 2-3 working days, Trustly 2-3 working days, PayPal 2-3 working days
