Parimatch is a relatively fresh-faced booker from the BetVictor family that is definitely worth a try. Their stylish site provides the grounds for some great betting experiences, with menus that you can navigate fast to find the most interesting wagers available online.

The site offers great options for mobile players as well with a downloadable app for both Android and iOS devices, and there is plenty of extra value to be found from their promotions-page no matter the date. Sponsoring a number of Premier League teams along with other footballing giants, Parimatch knows what a true bettor wants.

Parimatch might not be known by many sports fans in the UK, but this betting brand has actually been around for a long time as the company was originally founded all the way back in 1994.

With a sportsbook created by BetVictor, any customers of the BV sportsbook will certainly recognise Parimatch as it looks virtually identical, bar the different black and yellow colours.

Good betting bonuses topped by a range of welcome bonuses offer new and existing customers good value, while the prices and odds at Parimatch tend to be among the best around as well - especially for horse racing due to the fact Best Odds Guaranteed is in place here.

A bet builder tool gives users the flexibility to create their own winning wagers, but even for major sports such as football Parimatch's betting markets can often feel a little limited.

Payment methods are restricted to just PayPal and debit cards too, but there are no fees charged on either deposits or withdrawals at Parimatch, which is good news for customers.

Live streaming is mostly focused on horse racing here, with users also needing to stake at least £1 in a race to access the stream, whereas other betting sites often offer these out for free.

Nevertheless, for a relatively new UK betting site Parimatch has made a strong start to life.

Parimatch free bet & sign up offer

Starting out your betting career at Parimatch is extremely lucrative, as you can get £40 of free value to enjoy with an investment of £5!

Getting the Parimatch free bet and sign up offer could hardly be easier. New users just need to click through to the site via Bojoko's link, then pick which of the welcome deals they want.

Betting bonuses are updated on a regular basis here, with Parimatch working harder than most bookmakers to ensure there is always something tempting on offer for their new customers.

As is the case with other betting bonuses elsewhere, users should be aware that claiming the Parimatch free bet and sign up offer requires an initial deposit to be made with a debit card.

As the Parimatch free bet and sign up offer expires within seven days, customers also need to make sure they will be able to spend it in time - use it or lose it!

Wagering requirements only apply to the slots bonuses, not for free sports bets, at Parimatch.

The Parimatch free bet and sign up offer was credited to my account as soon as I placed the qualifying bet required, with no need to get in touch with customer support to claim the deal.

Free bet no deposit

Parimatch doesn't offer no deposit bonuses or free bets at the moment.

First deposit bonus code

You don't need a bonus code to claim Parimatch's first deposit bonus.

The odds at Parimatch are extremely competitive. You can enjoy an average payout percentage of 93% on all bets you make on the site, and when it comes to more popular sports like football or basketball this number even rises by a few percent.

As Parimatch has partnered with BetVictor for their UK site, sports fans would probably assume that it has some of the best betting odds around, as BV is known for providing excellent value.

Parimatch certainly provides fantastic odds for most top sports as a result, with the fact horse racing fans can get Best Odds Guaranteed on races being another tick in the box for the site.

Esports betting odds are particularly good at Parimatch, which has a strong focus on esports.

The most important aspect for any bookmaker to get right are the betting markets that it offers players. At Parimatch you can enjoy making wagers on a number of different sports, with the bookie's biggest focus going towards horse racing, football, tennis and basketball.

This is just the tip of the iceberg however, as there are more than 30 different sports to choose from, including specials like entertainment, politics, esports and virtual sports. Visually the markets are easy to follow, with the most popular events always being shown first.

Again, the markets at Parimatch are broadly the same as users will find at BetVictor. As with other major UK online bookmakers, football and horse racing lead the way on the site.

Racing from around the world is offered, so fans of the sport of kings are not just restricted to UK and Irish meetings. There is the chance to bet on races from countries as far afield as New Zealand, France and the United States on the Parimatch sports betting site.

Football lovers might be a bit surprised by the relative lack of betting options at Parimatch. Browsing Premier League games a week in advance showed under 100 betting markets, which is a fraction of the number some sites are able to offer. Even big World Cup qualifying matches on the day of the game had fewer than 150 betting markets, but there is a bet builder tool here.

Esports betting markets are impressive and Parimatch covers minor sports such as futsal, handball, hurling and speedway to a decent degree. The list of sports is not comprehensive, though, with fans of bandy and water polo not able to find any bets for those options right now.

Politics markets include bets for the outcome of elections in the UK and the US, while Parimatch also offers customers the chance to bet on entertainment options such as the Oscars and reality TV shows such as Dancing on Ice, as well as the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year prize.

If you feel like a winning bet might be turning sour, you can take advantage of Parimatch's cash out option. The bookmaker offers both whole and partial cash outs, so you can choose yourself how big of a chunk of your wager you want to leave to be settled normally.

If you want to cash out your bet and win early, simply choose betting markets (most) where the cash out icon (a hand holding a banknote) is visible. After you've placed your bet it will appear in your cash out zone on the site.

Live betting can be enjoyed at Parimatch with almost as wide betting options as with their pre match bets. Each match has lots of different bets to choose from instead of just betting on who will win, and you can enjoy choosing what to bet on with the help of a game center full of useful statistics.

The live in-play betting interface at Parimatch is also the same as at BetVictor, so fans of that site are certain to feel right at home here.

Football fans at Parimatch can get an idea of a game's flow via an animation, while there are a raft of stats and data that are also available to help customers try to pick their winning wagers.

Parimatch customers can check out live streams of live racing from the UK, Ireland, South Africa and the UAE, as long as they stake a minimum of £1 on the race they want to watch.

Some esports live streams are also available, but otherwise the selection is a little limited. When an image of a video camera is shown on the sportsbook, then a live stream is available to view.

Cash out is also available on most live in-play markets that can be found at Parimatch too.

Parimatch Live stream

In addition to just betting live, Parimatch also provides players with the option of watching some events live while making your bets. Free live streams for esports and horse racing are provided to all players with at least £1 in their account, or if they've placed bets within 24 hours.

Parimatch wants to provide players with the best possible betting experience no matter what device they are using. This is why the site provides a mobile app for both iOS and Android users that can be downloaded for completely free.

Betting with smart phones and tablets can also be done through the browser on your device, but we would always recommend the app to get the most out of your mobile bets at Parimatch. Almost everything that you can do on the desktop version can also be enjoyed mobile.

As with the main website, the Parimatch mobile betting apps - which are on both iOS and Android through the App Store and Google Play respectively - are made by BetVictor.

App Store users have given the Parimatch app for iOS an average rating of 4.6 stars out of five, ensuring it is one of the highest rated mobile betting apps available for the platform right now.

People with Android devices have also been impressed with the Parimatch mobile app, giving it an average rating of 4.2 stars out of five at the time of writing.

The apps work well and include access to the full range of Parimatch betting options, from the sportsbook to the live casino, as well as functionality like cash out and live streaming as well.

Not everyone will want to download the Parimatch app for iOS or the Parimatch app for Android, but the good news is that the mobile Parimatch website does a good job as well.

Safe & responsible gambling

Safe and responsible gambling is very important to Parimatch, which is why you can take advantage of a lot of different options and tools to help keep harmful gambling habits in control:

These include:

Don't hesitate when you want to find help with problematic gambling behaviors, as Parimatch provides you with plenty of links through which help can be found. This also applies to other people - if you know someone is struggling, be there for them when they want to find solutions.

Top-quality customer support is essential for any bookmaker who wants to survive, and Parimatch handles this are with great expertise thanks to their experienced customer servers. You can get help 24/7 at the site with the following methods:

In addition to these, you can find an extremely extensive Frequently Asked Questions page from the site which covers all areas.

Parimatch live chat is available 24/7 and I was quickly connected to a friendly and polite agent when I tested it out as part of this review.

It did take a while for them to locate my account before they could answer a question, which was a bit frustrating as I was in a hurry. It then took quite a few minutes to get a response to a fairly basic question about deposit and withdrawal limits, which I could not find in the FAQ.

As well as live chat, social media users can connect with customer support at Parimatch through Facebook and Twitter, which a lot of people are sure to find handy. It is also possible to request a call back for those who would prefer to speak to someone over the telephone.

Email customer support is also possible at Parimatch for those who like to use that method too.

KYC & Documents

Like all bookmakers who can be trusted in the UK, PariMatch operates under a Gambling Commission license. This guarantees the safety of the bookie, and means that there are some KYC procedures that the bookie needs to follow.

This means that when you have an account at PariMatch some information may be asked of you, but in many cases no documents are needed. The following information might be asked of you however, especially when making withdrawals:

New users at Parimatch have the chance to check out what is needed in terms of account verification and documentation during the registration process, so there are no shocks later.

When I joined, everything happened automatically and my account was fully verified, ensuring the process of signing up at Parimatch to bet on sport could not have been any simpler.

However, in the event of Parimatch needing to establish that it has a customer's correct name, address and date of birth, further checks might need to be carried out for some users.

Customers are also advised that proof of income may be needed to satisfy Parimatch's responsible gaming obligations, while the site might even request customers send in a selfie photograph holding a corresponding photographic ID to make 100 per cent sure of their identity.

ID documents accepted as part of the account verification and documentation process at Parimatch include a current signed passport and any type of national identity card bearing a photograph of the applicant.

For proof of address, Parimatch accepts a utility bill such as gas, electric, or landline phone bill that has been issued within the last three months, as well as a current UK driving licence.

Customers can even opt to send in a copy of their NHS Medical card or a letter of confirmation from GP’s practice of registration with the surgery in order to prove their address to the site.

Banking

PariMatch offers very traditional methods when it comes to bank transfers between players and the site. You can make deposits as small as £5 at PariMatch using the common Mastercard and Visa cards, and other deposit methods include Paysafecards, PayPal and Fast Bank Transfer.

The bookie requires you to use the same method for withdrawals that you've used for depositing whenever possible. Visa users have the option of using FastFund withdrawals to get your winnings back to you within 30 minutes of approval, while with other methods you can enjoy your winnings within 2-5 business days.

One of the problems at Parimatch concerns money transfers and payment methods, with a fairly limited range of options available for deposits and withdrawals compared to most major bookies.

Debit cards from Visa, Maestro and MasterCard can all be used to make a deposit at Parimatch, though of course credit cards can no longer be used after a change to the laws in the UK. Cards from Monzo and Revolut are not accepted as deposit methods by Parimatch at this time either.

PayPal users can add funds from their account - though they will not qualify for the Parimatch free bet and sign up offer if they use it for their first deposit - but there are no other e-wallets.

That means people who would rather use Skrill or Neteller will be out of luck at Parimatch.

There is also no option to either pay by phone bill or use cryptocurrency while Paysafecard, which is accepted by most top online betting sites in the UK, is also currently missing here.

There is a minimum deposit of £5 and a minimum withdrawal of £10, amounts that are in line with most major UK bookmakers, with no fees ever charged by Parimatch itself on transactions.

After winning a couple of bets, I proceeded to withdraw some winnings at 8.30 on a Friday. As my debit card does not have the fast funds functionality of others, it took Parimatch just over six hours to clear the transaction and for the money to appear back in my bank account.

Depositing methods

Mastercard Visa Paysafecard PayPal Fast Bank Transfer

Withdrawal methods

Mastercard Visa PayPal Fast Bank Transfer

Withdrawal times

Mastercard 2-5 working days, Visa 2-5 working days, PayPal 2-5 working days, Fast Bank Transfer 2-5 working days
