How’s the Layout?
I have to be completely honest, I absolutely love the colour scheme and layout of VolcanoBet. The one thing that stuck out to me was the font of the headings though… not sure if I like it just yet but time will tell, currently it looks and feels like a fantastic betting site but the title font feels like a casino app.
Time to sign up.
Signing up to VolcanoBet!
VolcanoBet seems to be using a similar sign-up system to some other well-respected bookies and it is without a doubt my favourite sign-up form to date, it took me less than a minute and everything you see on the form below is all you need to fill in to get you up and on their site.
Let’s fund the account.
Adding some funds
Funding the VolcanoBet account is incredibly easy, although there are only two options available (Visa and Mastercard), they are the two most commonly used cards in Australia so it is safe to say every one of legal betting age should have at least one of these cards in their wallet or purse.
Let’s jump into the betting side of things.
Placing a bet
For this review, I tested various means of the VolcanoBet betting site including mobile app, mobile website, laptop, desktop, and tablet for both Apple and Android, however, the images found in this section of the review are from the computer (easier for me to copy and paste for the review).
The Form Guide
Unfortunately, the form guide is extremely limited with only the Weight, Jockey, Field, and trainer available, it would have been nice to see a little more information but apparently, according to my sources in VolcanoBet, this is something they are working on to be optimal before they release the form guide to the public.
There is currently no full-form guide on VolcanoBet.
Like the Full Form Guide, there is no speed map on the VolcanoBet betting site, however, this may be something that they introduce down the line.
Popping on a bet
I always find when a Horse opened somewhere in the vicinity of $20 and dropped to less than half price there is a good chance that someone knows something that I don’t, which is exactly why I threw $5 on the nose for Applied.
Setting your Deposit Limit
You can set your deposit limit directly after signing up with a little box to tick yes or no on, however, I forgot to take a screenshot, you may also set your deposit limit in the account section of the profile simply by going to your Funds Icon (the dollar value you have in your account), My Account, Deposit Limit (an orange button near the top of this page).
Betting on Sports
I’m a huge sports fan so always have to check out the sports section when doing any of my reviews, I was pretty stoked to see so many markets available to choose from, I popped a same game multi on both the AFL and NRL games this week but won’t know the outcome for a few days.
Verifying your account
Verifying my account was pretty simple, Unlike other small bookies there is no emailing them directly for confirmation, etc. All I had to do was fill in some more personal details directly within their site and before I knew it the account was verified.
I think it’s great! Initially, I was a bit hesitant about the font as it had the feel of a kid’s game, however after having a little bit of a play around it actually gave a nice little touch to the site, giving it a less hard feel than some other sites on the market, in terms of functionality it is excellent and does everything you want it to without any glitches. It would be nice to have a few additional features that are missing however, all betting sites are missing one thing or another and I think it more than makes up for it with the amount of markets available.
