Betr Review

The brainchild of Jake Paul and Joey Levy, Betr is the first sports betting app focused on “microbetting”, which is placing a wager on individual moments of a contest that are not related to the final score (similar to prop bets). The wagers are made in real-time and settle quickly. A social media influencer and ultimate new media hype man, Jake Paul knows how social media platforms like Tiktok have changed the way the world works. “Microbetting is the Tiktok-ification of sports betting and I am excited to bring it to the masses through Betr,” said the company co-founder.

Currently in a free-play Beta mode, Betr is set to launch for real money in Ohio on January 1, 2023, with other states to follow in the near future. However, at the time being, the app feels like it’s being marketed to young kids. With bright colors, flashy logos, and layman’s vernacular, Betr is very clearly targeting the greenest bettors and most casual of sports fans.

Betr Locations

Currently, Betr has no brick-and-mortar locations but the app is operable anywhere in the US. In most states, it will only be available in play-money mode for the near future but users can win real prizes, with the app’s tokens translating into real cash. Betr even gave away a brand-new Jeep Wrangler in a contest on its free-play portal — not a bad way to generate excitement for the new app.

Sports Leagues to Bet On

Betr offers markets on all the major domestic professional and college sports and goes deep down to the molecular level of games to allow consumers to wager on the minutia of each game.   

NFL Betting

The top dog in the betting market for nearly every sportsbook is front and center on Betr as well. In addition to the commonplace moneyline, spread, and total markets, Betr includes a “RequestABet” section with a combination of exact-score markets, combined player props, and other single-game parlay options for elevated odds. It also displays any “Odds Boost” wagers in the game’s main betting navigation, allowing users quick access to boosted plays. 

NBA Betting

The NBA moves a little bit faster than the NFL, so the markets are a little different … and users should stay on top of the games they are betting on. NBA wagers are available for users in time increments such as halves or quarters or even on a per-possession basis. These wagers are only offered during stoppages in play and are suspended during live play, but make for fast-paced action for NBA fans. 

College Football

Similar to its NFL offerings, Betr provides users with team microbets for each FBS contest, ranging from the power-five conferences to Mountain West, Sun Belt, and AAC games. Currently, there are no player-based microbets available (at least in New York where I’ve accessed the app), but those may be available in other states where similar wagers on college player props are allowed.

College Basketball

College Basketball moves almost as fast as the NBA, and just like its professional counterpart should be monitored closely while placing microbets. Betr offers markets on nearly every power-five basketball game, including “Next Field Goal,” bets giving users the option of a two-point field goal or, for slightly better odds, a three-point field goal. 

NHL Betting

Betr offers markets on every NHL contest, but things can be difficult to track with the speed of professional hockey. Bettors are provided “Goal scored at listed time” bets, placing wagers on whether a not a goal is scored in a certain 10-minute increment. 

MLB Betting

MLB offers one of the broadest spectrums of microbet markets, giving users the opportunity to bet the result of every half-inning, at-bat, or even every pitch. Betr typically forces users to wait until lineups are officially submitted, three hours before game time, before they open their MLB markets. Betr went so far as to offer pitch velocity Over/Unders for certain contests in September 2022.

Other Sports Leagues

It makes sense that professional soccer is not one of the markets offered by Betr. Soccer’s flowing action doesn’t exactly lend itself to the microbetting model in the same way that the start-and-stop action of the other professional leagues - particularly football and baseball - do. The most surprising omission from Betr’s platform was combat sports, considering the background of its high-profile co-founder. Though that could change quickly as the platform continues to grow after its initial launch.   

Online Betting Experience 

The Betr website is a portal used to explain the platform and push users to download the app. Capitalizing on the instant-gratification model of social media platforms like Tiktok, co-founder Jake Paul has created content to market the product himself.

Website Experience

Sleek, dark, and modern, the Betr website has a new-age look and feel, clearly targeting a younger generation of sports bettors. With a full-page ad to download the app above the scroll line, the objective of this web portal is clear. Below the scroll, users will find a brief explanation of what microbetting is, a link to each of Betr’s social media platforms, and a long list of media mentions and editorials promoting the product.

Mobile Betting and Betting App

A clean user interface and easy-to-navigate platform make Betr the ideal application for new and novice users. Veteran sports bettors may be thrown off by the “multiplier” payout formulas instead of the traditional sportsbook odds display, but it’s pretty self-explanatory. Just remember that a 1.90x multiplier is a -110 bet, not a +190 bet.  

The app interface consists of all the available leagues at the top of the screen with each broken down by game, conference, or league in the sub-navigation. Users have quick and easy one-touch access to view their current bets (which is important considering how quickly the games and wagers move). 

In the free-to-play beta version, users are issued coins that can be cashed out for real money increments at higher levels. Of course when the real-money version launches, users will be able to see their account balance instead. 

Live Betting

The large majority of microbets are live in-game wagers, with users firing bets on the results of individuals periods, drives, or plays. Most of the wagers offered are independent of the result of the contest itself and solely reliant on what happens immediately. 

Casino, Poker, & Other Gaming Options

Betr is just breaking into the industry and has only just launched its app. Though there are no alternative gaming options offered yet, don’t be surprised to see Betr continue to penetrate the market with different kinds of gaming options. 

Betr History

Betr launched its mobile app on September 1, 2022, originally as a free-play beta. Having already developed SimpleBet in 2018 — a platform specifically designed for microbetting — Levy partnered with Paul to generate the funds to launch the Betr app. They raised $50 million from a group of investment firms and celebrities in its initial fundraising and has rolled out the free-play beta app in all 50 states and plans to move forward with its real-money platform on a state-by-state basis, beginning with Ohio. 

Customer Ratings & Reputation

Betr has received mostly positive reviews on both Apple Store and Google Play, with a few users complaining about a login issue in mid-September 2022. But that appears to have been resolved relatively quickly based on review timestamps and administrator responses to the posted reviews. Most of the online reviews rave about Betr’s intuitive user interface and simplicity.

Meanwhile, the majority of the negative reviews were complaints about the lack of traditional sportsbook content. Despite the feedback, it doesn’t appear that Betr plans to include traditional spread or moneyline markets, instead leaning into the microbetting exclusive platform they currently have.  

Customer Service

The Betr help page has a search function that allows users to answer their most basic questions. The email address provided guarantees an answer within 72 hours of submitting a ticket, and you can also reach out to them via Twitter. Their customer support options are limited, but quite possibly could expand once they officially go live.

Why Choose Betr?

Betr has turned in-game wagering on its head by dedicating its entire platform to microbetting. By creating a true instant-gratification play style for sports bettors, Betr has tapped into a market that few others have successfully navigated. Though the big players like DraftKings have dabbled in this with things like “Flash Props,” the wagers are typically difficult to find and bet in live time. Betr’s user interface, dedicated solely to microbetting, makes it easy to lock in bets and see results quickly. 

This platform is ideal for the low-limit, novice bettor who is casually looking for an additional level of entertainment from their sporting events. Having to sweat Sean McVay’s play-calling or Jacob DeGrom’s slider velocity certainly adds to the consumer experience, but isn’t something that “sharp” bettors typically endorse. 

The promotions and giveaways from Betr have been attention-catching already. Users will have to wait and see if Betr can live up to the hype.
