Bonuses

$100 Deposit Match

Terms and conditions apply.

VBET Welcome Bonus: 100% Deposit Match up to $100

VBET offers Canadian players a 100% deposit match up to $100 on your first bet. To qualify, your first needs to be at least $10 with minimum odds of 1.80 (-125) or worse. Your deposit match will be rewarded as two separate bets with different terms.

The first free bet has no restrictions and equals 60% of your first wager amount (so, $60 if your first bet was $100). After you wager the first free bet, you'll receive a second free bet for the remaining 40% of your first wager total.

The second free bet can only be used on a parlay with at least three legs at minimum odds of 1.50 (-200).

Free bets are only valid for seven days, or they will expire. You're also not allowed to cash out until you have completed your playthrough requirements, or else the bonus and any winnings accrued using bonus money will become void.

You must deposit using Interac, MuchBetter, EcoPayz, PaysafeCard, PremierPay, Stricpay, Astropay, or Jeton to qualify. Credit/debit card deposits will not qualify for this promo.

We wouldn't call this an overly-complicated bonus, but it is not well explained unless you dig through their terms. Plus you can tell the terms were poorly translated from a different language into English, making it a little tough to follow. 

Ongoing Promos, Parlays, and Odds Boosts

VBET has a wealth of ongoing promos to satisfy existing players. Some are standard offerings like parlay insurance that will reward you cashback if one leg of a parlay loses. VBET offers boosted odds on select events, but these can sometimes come with lower maximum bet limits. Other promos are much more complicated, like their Profit Booster, which allows you to boost your net winnings daily by 5%-20%, depending on your deposit amount that day. They also offer key features like "Bet Edit," which allows you to change, add, or remove bets placed.

Here are some simple ongoing promos that are easy for all players to take advantage of.

Daily Cashback of up to $150

VBET offers you 10% cash back on losing wagers up to $150 every day. Your cashback is rewarded as free bets with no restrictions and is valid for only five days after issuance. This is a pretty solid and straightforward offering.

5% Deposit Match Every Day

Another low-value but thoughtful daily perk VBET offers is that they'll match your 5% of your first deposit each day up to $10. There are no wagering requirements for this free bet either, but it is only valid for one day, so use it immediately, or it will disappear.

VBET Sportsbook Review

Advertising itself as the “territory of thrill”, vbet may not be known to the casual or even more experienced Canadian sports bettors — but perhaps it should. It offers competitive odds for most major sports, offers a wide variety of sports to actually bet on, and its mobile experience is among the best out there.

Read our full review on vbet to see why you should consider signing up for this sportsbook.

vbet Locations

vbet is available in over 120 countries, holding 10 licenses from various gaming authorities.

Sports Leagues to Bet On

vbet features a multitude of sports bettors enjoy wagering on. In fact, the wide variety of sports and betting markets that are available at vbet can be overwhelming at times.

NFL Betting

There is no shortage of markets for NFL fans to bet on at vbet. The main Moneyline, spread, and Over/Under markets are of course covered, and there are plenty of game and player props for each individual matchup. Their futures markets are limited — you’ll only be able to wager on the Super Bowl winner, conference winner, division winner, and “season specials” which at the time of writing is just if a team will go 17-0.

The options seem endless for the NFL, but the vig that you’ll pay on ML and spread bets is offputting. For player props, they’re actually better than popular sportsbook bet365 for markets like touchdown scorer but are paying at least eight cents or more of vig for receiving yards props.

NBA Betting

There's no shortage of betting options for NBA fans, as vbet offers ML, spread, and total plays for every game on the schedule. You can also wager on quarterly or halftime options and daily player props. You’ll even be able to bet on which team finishes with more rebounds assists, and three-pointers, which is something I haven’t seen at other sportsbooks.

College Football

vbet has ML, spread, and O/U plays for all Division I college football games on any given Saturday during the season, along with a large assortment of quarter-by-quarter or halftime plays. You can also wager on team props. 

College Basketball

If you want to experience a college basketball sweat, vbet has you covered. ML, spread, O/U markets are of course offered for full-time and half-time in addition to team props like total points. 

While they do offer college basketball and that should be commended. However, the selection is so bare that it's clear they do not put much effort into this sport. Its future bets are also limited, as it currently offers no markets for conference winners. 

NHL Betting

vbet does well to appeal to the puckheads that preside in Canada, offering a healthy number of NHL hockey markets every day during the season and into the Stanley Cup playoffs. In addition to ML, puckline, and total plays, bettors have access to team and player props and period-specific betting markets. 

The prices on its ML markets are surprisingly competitive, and I was shocked by how much better the odds offered for goalscorers were than at some other sportsbooks. It shows how much they care about Canadian customers if they’re putting this much effort into its NHL product.

MLB Betting

How do you make a summer afternoon even better? By firing up your vbet account and placing some baseball wagers. vbet offers comprehensive MLB markets for pre-game bets (ML, runline, total) and in-game action (five innings ML/RL, player props, team props). 

Other Sports Leagues

For a lesser-known sportsbook, vbet offers a wide array of different sports and leagues of popular sports to bet on. If you like betting on basketball, you would expect odds for the NBA to be available. What you might not expect is access to odds from approximately 20 countries around the world. You’ll be able to wager on all five major European soccer leagues, plus MLS and other leagues from around the world. Tennis, UFC, NASCAR, golf, and e-Sports such as Dota 2 are also covered, and you can even bet on the outcomes of political elections if that interests you.

vbet has odds available for many sports you probably didn’t know had betting markets. They offer alpine skiing, bandy, water polo, snooker, squash, surfing, netball, floorball, kabaddi, and chess.

Online Betting Experience

Website Experience

The desktop experience for vbet can feel a bit overwhelming at first, but once you get the hang of it I found it to be a smooth experience for the most part. What’s nice about it is the option for different layouts. The “event view” is the standard one most bettors have come to expect — available sports on the left, betting markets in the middle, and bet slip on the right. The “live calendar” option is helpful for those who like to bet on popular sports but more obscure leagues. Select basketball for example, and not only will you get NBA and NCAA lines, but also games from Argentina and Panama. I’d love to see this sortable by player props, but as of right now only ML, spread, and totals are available.

The “results” page is confusing and frankly doesn’t belong on a betting site. The fact that it doesn’t show historical lines and just results mean bettors can just ignore this. Their “statistics” page has potential, but bettors may want to look at other spots for their numbers. They still have last season’s coaches live for some NHL teams!

Mobile Betting and Betting App

The vbet mobile app is one of the better betting apps I have come across doing these reviews. The colour scheme is a basic white and grey with orange text odds but it works well on the screen. Featured games, popular games, and upcoming matches are shown on the main page when you open the app, but you can easily sort by different sports and leagues by clicking the “games” button at the bottom. Live betting is also very easy on the mobile app, as all you have to do is hit the “live” tab on the games page.

The app is smooth, easy to use, and frankly a better experience than the desktop website. A lot of sportsbooks could take a lesson on how seamless the vbet app is.

Live Betting

Live betting at vbet is a straightforward process. On the desktop website, just click the “live” tab on the top left corner and you’ll have a great selection of live betting markets to choose from. Everything from soccer, basketball, hockey, e-Sports, and even archery shooting. On the mobile app, the live odds take a few seconds to load but once they do you’ll have the same selection as the website.

In terms of the actual live odds offered, they’re on par with other sportsbooks available to Canadians. In fact, they are sometimes better than Pinnacle.

Casino, Poker, & Other Gaming Options

vbet’s casino has plenty to keep you occupied. They offer approximately 135 slots, jackpots, and megaways to choose from in addition to 113 lottery games. vbet also has over 304 table games to choose from, way above some of our other top-rated sportsbooks

Its live casino has 359 games to choose from, which includes everything from roulette, blackjack, baccarat, poker, and even Andar Bahar. All casino and live casino games are sorted by gaming provider.

vbet History

vbet was founded in 2003 as a small shop in Yerevan, Armenia, and set up its first betting website in 2006 in that same country. They acquired their first European license from the Malta Gaming Authority in 2015, and licenses from National Gaming Authority in France and the UK Gambling Committee in 2017. In 2020, they partnered with the well-known French soccer team AS Monaco and with OGC Nice in 2022.

Customer Ratings & Reputation

vbet’s reputation amongst bettors is both good and bad. Praise for vbet goes especially towards the mobile app and the odds offered on most major sports leagues. 

Complaints include issues with location verification, delayed payouts, and will limit you by asking for “proof of wealth” if you get on a hot streak, especially in less-wagered leagues.

Customer Service

vbet offers numerous ways to contact them should you have a question or concern. You can contact them by email, 24/7 live chat, or even by phone. I found their live chat to be super responsive and helpful, and much better than the automated service some sportsbooks advertise as “live chat” support. They also have a FAQ section but seem mostly to answer questions about what a live bet is rather than issues with your account.

vbet Legal Betting

In Canada, vbet is operated by Radon B.V and is licensed by Curacao Interactive Licensing. Bettors can be reassured they are depositing onto a website with legal oversight. 

Responsible Gambling

vbet has numerous resources dedicated to those struggling with problem gambling. They provide self-exclusion and time-outs for customers, with the player having to contact customer support to activate it. Timeouts can be for periods of 24 hours, one week, one month, or two months and self-exclusion can be from six months to five years according to our discretion.

Here are a few resources to help ensure you are gambling responsibly.

  • ResponsibleGambling.org: The Responsible Gambling Council (RGC) is a respected, independent non-profit organization. They have been a leader in preventing problem gambling in Canada and globally for more than 35 years.
  • BeGambleAware.org: offers free, confidential help and support to anyone worried about gambling for themselves or others.
  • Gambling Therapy: a global service provided by Gordon Moody offering free emotional support and advice to anyone affected by gambling.
  • Gamblers Anonymous: a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from a gambling problem.

Why Choose vbet?

vbet has a lot of things going for them. The quality of odds in some markets is close to and even beats some of the higher profile sportsbooks, and the mobile app is amongst one of the best out there. The sheer amount of sports leagues and casino games on offer is also a big plus.

If it can fix its desktop experience by making it a bit more user-friendly and navigable, plus improve its welcome bonus, vbet is onto a winning product. For someone looking to have another sportsbook as an option, you could do a whole lot worse than vbet.
