The Galaxy Sports website offers bettors a wide variety of sports to wager on, including all major American sports
Like many of the best sportsbooks, Galaxy Sports utilizes a whole slew of bonus and loyalty programs to keep bettors sweet. The bonus offers include sign-up or welcome bonuses, deposit bonus, refer-a-friend bonus, and free play bonus, amongst several others. All bonus rewards and loyalty programs involve some form of a rollover requirement, so users must always read the fine print before choosing to redeem any bonus offers. Failure to satisfy rollover requirements will prevent users from withdrawing funds in most cases.
Galaxy Sports defines bonus rollovers as: “The rollover on a bonus is always calculated as your deposit plus bonus amount, multiplied by the rollover amount (for example 4-times 8-times, etc.) depending on the promotion.” Rollover requirements for any bonus are highlighted in the cashier section clearly for users to keep tabs on. Any remaining rollover is also indicated. Galaxy Sports takes a firm stance against “bonus hunters” or bonus fraud, as do most reputable sportsbooks in the business. Any user found to be abusing bonus privileges will forfeit all bonus and any BetPoints received.
BetPoints is a loyalty program that Galaxy Sports offers, rewarding users for each play. As the marketing slogan on the site indicates succinctly, “the more you play, the more you earn.” BetPoints can vary by betting type. For example, straight bets, if-bets, and reverse bets earn one BetPoint, while parlays (2-15 teams) earn 2 BetPoints. Roulette and slots earn the most BetPoints with 3. Additional information on BetPoints, how they are earned and redeemed are available on the sports betting pages.
Galaxy Sports is part of the the Bookmaker.eu network, so it benefits from early lines and great software. Galaxy Sports entered the online sports betting sector in 2014 and the sportsbook has held a solid A rating with SBR’s review guide since 2015.
Sports betting at Galaxy Sports caters to both the casual bettor and the sharp bettor by offering wide-ranging betting limits. Both groups are sure to feel welcome at Galaxy. Furthermore, the Galaxy sportsbook makes it easy by setting out betting limits handily on betting slips, right next to the corresponding bet.
The sports betting slip is very detailed and has many innovative features that allow a bettor to tailor bets to their specific needs. Bettors are prompted through the process of making a bet, and at any point in time before confirming a bet, a bettor can cancel it. Mobile betting and in-play betting are also available, which allows bettors to take advantage of betting on the go and wagering on the event while it unfolds.
Sports Betting Experience
If you are looking for razzle-dazzle, landing on Galaxy sports pages might leave you somewhat underwhelmed. However, the book shouldn’t be judged by its cover. You will find clean lines, a clutter-free interface, and thoughtfully spaced out sections, making it sleek and utilitarian.
What it lacks in flashy design, it more than makes up for in function and service. The understated design of the site allows users to clearly see where everything is, without the distraction of ads and gimmicks. The top bar lists the various products available at Galaxy sports and includes the following: sports, casino, racebook, contest, and cashier. When in the sportsbook, an easy to follow navigation bar on the left-hand side of the website lists a veritable buffet of sports to bet on. Sports that are open to live betting are indicated with a green Wi-Fi icon.
There’s something for everybody at Galaxy Sports. Most major US sports are available, including NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, tennis, and golf. Additionally, there’s a whole range of other sports, including table tennis, boxing, martial arts, volleyball, darts, and e-sports. Proposition bets are also represented with political betting and entertainment betting.
The wagering slip is very slick and accompanied with easy-to-follow steps on how to complete a wager. One very useful feature is the inclusion of betting limits that accompany each selection, making it easy for bettors to see what the minimum and maximum betting amounts are. Another feature of the betting slip that makes it standout is the adoption of real-time odds, which update instantly when lines move.
Quality of Odds
Galaxy Sports offers competitive odds and covers all manner of sports for bettors to sink their teeth into. The main focus of the odds market appears to be with the most common betting types — straight bets, spread betting, and totals. That said, other betting types are available, including if-bets, parlays, teasers, round robins, and buying and selling points.
The odds board updates in real-time with the most current, up-to-date service which is handy for bettors that are in the habit of shopping around for the best line available before pulling the trigger on a bet.
Mobile Betting Review
Galaxy Sports is mobile-ready, meaning no separate app needs to be downloaded to use the site on a tablet, phone, or other mobile device. The mobile version of the website is a mirror-opposite of the main website. The mobile optimized version of the website works on iOS, Android, and other devices. Customer support is available via Live Chat on the mobile feature, which is handy when on the go.
As with the main site, users must log in to Galaxy Sports to access the odds board and all things sports betting, casino, and horse racing related. To log in, users can find the appropriate button on the top-right corner of the screen.
Navigating the mobile version of Galaxy Sports site is facilitated by drop down menus and selecting sports to bet on is performed simply by selecting a tick box next to the choice bet, after which by pressing the continue button a bettor will arrive at a betting slip.
Galaxy Sports has a strong suite of products over and above sports betting and live betting. E-sports is fast becoming a popular in betting circles, and Galaxy Sports covers it in detail. Games covered include DOTA 2, League of Legends, CS:GO, and StarCraft 2.
As with many online sports betting platforms, Galaxy Sports has a solid online casino, which allows visitors to play a varied selection of table games. Bingo and Keno are also on hand in the casino section. Navigating through the casino is facilitated by the left-hand navigation bar, which displays what’s on offer. Selecting one of the options on the left-hand bar opens the full serving of games in the main section of the page. It is not the largest online casino on the market, and it could benefit from Live Dealer casino games, but the list of titles has been intuitively curated.
Finally, there is a racebook and contests section that complete the products on offer with Galaxy Sports. Betting on horse racing offers some intriguing promotions and from the information gathered on the racebook’s rules page it doesn’t appear that rollover requirements are attached to any horse racing bonus promotions.
