In this VikingBet review we will be taking a look at all aspects of the playthrough in both a real betting playthrough experience from signing up to the site all the way to placing a bet, you will also find a more thorough and detailed review of the entire site further down the page.
How’s the Layout?
VikingBet is structured well and the layout is nicely presented, much like major betting sites the same approach has been taken to ensure consistency.
The light blue and yellow in the buttons is a nice touch to the buttons that helps to break up the browns and dark blue, however, the one thing I’m not a big fan of regarding the layout though is the text in some areas as the nordic style text can be difficult to read if you are not used to it.
Let’s Fill in the Signup form.
Time to Sign Up!
By clicking the sign up button in the top right corner I was met with a page with minimal details required to create my account, this included the simplest of details such as my name, email, mobile number, and address, the entire process took a little over a minute from start to finish.
Verifying your account
Immediately after creating my account, VikingBet requested I verify my identity before proceeding.
After filling in the signup form, I was immediately brought to a page where I needed to verify my identity, typically this is done of your own accord when trying to withdraw funds, however, I think it is great that they are getting everything out the way all at once.
Setting your Deposit Limit
Once my id had been verified another page appeared asking me if I would like to set a deposit limit, for sake of time in creating the review I clicked no, but i thought it was great that they are being so upfront and transparent in the beginning.
Let’s fund our account.
Adding some funds
Now that has been taken care of it’s time to put some money in the account, there are only two depsiting options available (Visa and Mastercard) but considering I already had my wallet open from verifying my id I found using my card would have been the best option anyway.
I popped $60 in the account which was enough to test placing bets across all devices for both racing and sports.
Placing a bet
With the plan to test bets across all devices on both racing and sports, I decided I would start with racing as it comes open as the standard.
the race listings were structured the same way as most other betting sites so I don’t need to explain what to do there, I simply chose a race at random.
The Form Guide
Once I was into the race listing the short form guide was simplistic but impressive, with the runners all shown on the left hand side and the betting options to the right, I liked seeing the Flucs, Insights, and TOTE as options you can switch on or off depending on your preference and I also liked the way they were presented on the screen.
As you can see in the screenshot below, the flucs are shown underneath the runners, while the insights are displayed to the right of them, I was impressed with the way the insights were shown in such a quick and easy to understand manner.
Unfortunately, I checked the entire VikingBet racing section and could not locate a full-form guide on any platform, would have been nice to have that in their arsenal as it is something professional bettors like to study.
I love using a speed map especially on races over 1200 metres, however once again I was unable to find a speed map on the platform, this would be handy even as a quick snapshot under each of the runners as another toggle switch.
Popping on a bet
I popped a bet on Pammukale. There was nothing decent about the horse, but for the sake of popping a bet on, I figured why not go for a rough!
I placed $5 on the nose across all devices and all bets were processed easily without any issues, in hindsight, I probably should have bet some on a place but it was for the review anyway.
Betting on Sports
Now that we have taken care of the racing it’s time to jump over into sports, there are a number of different ways to get to the sports section of the platform depending on the device you are using but easy to get there regardless.
apart from the branded colours of VikingBet the sports section looked pretty standard, that is however until I saw the betting markets!
As a guess, I would have to say that VikingBet quite possibly has the most (if not close to the most) betting markets of any betting site in Australia.
I really like it, apart from the minor text issue which is still very readable, i think it is a fantastic betting site, that gives you everything you need as a novice to intermediate bettor, I would say however that as a professional bettor, if you are looking for a new betting site this does not have a speed map or full-form guide which you will most likely be using on a regular basis just like I do.
