It might not surprise you that each and every bookmaker and online casino you make your destination did not create the site by themselves. The chances are, they used an off the shelf software package from a software provider.
Betsys is one of those providers that make the software that keeps your preferred betting site ticking over, and makes your journey a much smoother ride. For that reason, at Betting.net we were keen to carry out this review and ask you to join us as we tour around the best Betsys sites and that use a Betsys sportsbook platform.
Betsys: Pros & Cons
- Over 60 million games transactions per month across the sites that use Betsys – which means the sites shouldn’t keep you waiting at the busiest times.
- Live sport package covering 15,00 events per month to give more choice to users
- Customisable app to offer a mobile experience to customers
As a full-spectrum service provider to the betting industry, Betsys can’t offer you a bonus themselves, but they may well be behind the software on the operator’s site that could. As we mentioned above, Betsys is not the only company that offers bookmaker software. But, as a provider for many operators across Europe and Central America, you could have taken advantage of a welcome bonus offer on one of their sites.
This is because Betsys have 15 years experience in offering software solutions for sportsbooks and also online casinos, the two main areas where the majority of welcome bonuses are offered to customers. This also means that customers on sites on the Betsys sportsbook also use Betsys software when that place qualifying wagers to trigger the bonus, when they use their free bets, or free spins and also when they turn over their deposit match the required number of times to lock that bonus in.
Providers like Betsys need to be at the top of their game when it comes to look, feel, and usability as they are in competition with other providers who offer their own solutions like the Symphony Solutions sportsbook platform.
The full-spectrum service offered by Betsys includes the Betsys sportsbook platform and casino software, that operators can buy and customize themselves. This provides a faster and cheaper solution than the alternative of developing the site themselves. Because this barrier has been removed, there are probably more sportsbooks in existence, and as a result, a wider range of bonus offers open to customers like you and me.
This approach can also bypass the teething troubles that any new site has, which is something a betting site would do well to avoid, and as the site would typically work to a UI and UX tested template, you can be sure that the usability of the site will be of a very high standard. The look and feel of the site, however, will be very much down to the operator and their preferences and branding.
This Betsys review found that the full spectrum solution offered by this provider covered many parts of an operator’s site. And, although Betsys supports more than 15 different payment methods, which of those would be available would obviously vary from operator to operator, depending on their own preference. This would also vary according to the country they operated in, as each will usually have a service unique to them, like Interac in Canada for instance.
Despite these variations, using a Betsys sportsbook platform will mean the operator will not have to add payment methods themselves, which can create a bumpy road for their customers during the payment process and potentially damage trust to the point where it affects new business.
However, this payment integration is common among many of the providers of software to the betting niche (see this OpenBet review for more information), so perhaps this should be judged as an industry-standard rather than a standout feature from this provider.
When we normally carry out a review, we look at the various methods that you can use to contact a sportsbook or online casino operator when you have issues with your account. However, as Betsys, along with other providers such as the one who offers the Kambi sportsbook solution, do not have this direct concern.
Of course, they offer these channels as part of the full spectrum package they offer to operators, but again, they are more of an industry-standard rather than a feature and will be made either a pro or con of the site in any reviews due to the way the operators use them to respond to customer issues.
However, where Betsys are of note, is with their full-spectrum package and 24/7 support to the operators who use it, the number of issues that customers are likely to have can be fewer and so will have a positive effect in that way.
As a provider of the software operators uses, Betsys does not carry a license themselves and do not need one, as the sportsbooks and online casinos that they supply are typically registered, licensed and regulated by the correct authorities in the areas that they operate.
As you might expect, if you were to search online for a Betsys license, you would not get any results (apart from perhaps that they license software to operators) and it would be no cause for concern.
The software they provide for the full spectrum solution offered by Betsys sportsbook platform does much to aid the security of the operator. As discussed above, it allows connection to various payment method suppliers and also has an Anti-fraud application preventing unfair betting. Those two components alone can add to customer confidence for whichever fully licensed operator is using Betsys software.
Betsys is an off the shelf solution that allows operators to put their own mark on their sportsbook site, not all Betsys sites will have the same offers to keep you loyal, which cannot be said for all EveryMatrix sites and others that use different software providers.
Betsys, as part of their full spectrum service, offers the operator the chance to create bespoke offers depending on your betting activity so far. This means the offers are more relevant and the points you earn as part of the loyalty program mean that you can use them for a benefit you want, rather than just opting for the same cashback offers you’d get anywhere else you go.
When we started this Betsys review, we were concerned that this provider, despite all of the talk of full-spectrum solutions, would walk the same path as all of the other providers to the extent that it would be hard to tell them apart.
The standout feature for Betsys though is that it does cover all of the options that the other operators offer, it seems to have the slight edge with one or two special attractions. The flexibility it offers across the board with casino services and virtual sports, and the smaller pieces of top drawer service and the ability to tailor offers to the customers’ needs make it easy to class it as one of the first-class providers we have reviewed on our travels.
