NordicBet is a professional online sportsbook that needs to be assessed on two levels: locally and globally. As its name suggests, the site specializes in catering to players in Nordic countries, especially Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. From this perspective, the site is outstanding, offering some of the best coverage available. From a global perspective, however, the site is merely average, only because it focuses so hard on events happening in Northern Europe, and not so hard on matches in other parts of the world.
The event coverage at NordicBet is visible right on the main page, since the site puts all its events out front instead of hiding them away inside menus. A quick glance over the list makes it clear that well over half of the odds this sportsbook offers are on European football matches. The rest of the events are dominated by volleyball, handball and basketball, but wagers are also offered on everything from ice hockey and golf to trotting and chess. The event coverage here is a bit unusual, so players will really need to browse the list to make sure their favorite sports are covered before signing up.
Within each event, quite a few bet types are available. Most matches are covered by outrights and under/over bets, but some events offer as many as a dozen or more different ways to wager. The range of bet types offered just depends on the popularity of the match. Live betting is also offered at NordicBet, letting players wager on games in progress. Unsurprisingly most live bets cover football, but I have seen them offered on everything from tennis to racing. The LiveBet section is a very welcome addition to NordicBet, and helps strengthen its offerings considerably.
Bonus offerings are slim, though NordicBet does provide new bettors with a first deposit match of 100% up to $100, which is quite impressive for a sportsbook. Unfortunately, the bonus is only available to players in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway. No other bonuses are offered in the sports betting section, but other promotions can be found in the poker and casino areas of the site.
The sports betting operations at NordicBet are offered by Nordic Odds Ltd., which operates out of Malta under the supervision of the country's Lotteries and Gaming Authority. The site offers a very comprehensive rules section that governs its actions; players should browse through these if they intend to place wagers at the site. The usual security measures are all implemented here, including full encryption of all sensitive data.
At the end of the day, NordicBet clearly has more to offer some bettors than others. For anyone living in Northern Europe, or for players interested in wagering on European football, this site is fantastic. Players who enjoy betting on a wide variety of event types, however, should check this sportsbook's event coverage first. As for the quality of services offered by NordicBet, they are definitely a professional operation, and they run a clean, safe and fair operation.
