The good news is that the operator is licensed via the Malta Gaming Authority, which means we get a solid European license here. That’s always our preference (if we have to choose) and better than a license from Curacao.
Whilst we couldn’t find anything negative about BetGold online that jumped out at us, the site is still very new and has not yet established much of a reputation. If they’d left negative impressions yet, we might have heard about it during our research, but so far things look quite good.
Even with an MGA license, BetGold will have to prove itself, so we will be keeping an eye out. So far, so good, however.
Cricket betting and other sports
Given that there has been a massive slump in sports betting due to the Corona crisis, BetGold managed to impress us right away with their cricket betting options. As already mentioned, the sportsbook is super easy to navigate. Just scroll down to cricket and you’ll find International, India, Australia and the UK as markets to choose from, where all current and a surprising number of upcoming events are listed.
This includes the IPL, The Ashes, the Caribbean Premier League, the World Cup 2023, the T10 European Cricket Series, the Twenty20 Big Bash and the Bob Willis Trophy.
Many betting options included outright bets, but even ahead of time you can bet on winner, to win the toss, top batsman and a few other options. Whilst we’ve seen more options elsewhere, BetGold is doing quite well here.
That said, their focus is undoubtedly on football and if you are seeking more markets beyond cricket, you’ll find just about everything covered very well in that area. Another strong focus is e-sports betting, however, which is hardly surprising as e-sports were among the few sports that surged during the pandemic.
Overall, BetGold offers more than two dozens sports for you to bet on, which makes them worthwhile for most casual punters and those who have more experience as well.
Games and more
BetGold is primarily a bookmaker, which means their online casino is comparatively small. Indeed, they only work with Betsoft, Evolution Gaming, iSoftBet, Microgaming, Play’n GO and Tom Horn to provide players with a considerable portfolio of games and live tables.
You will find some great games here and entertaining live tables, but at BetGold you actually have the chance to try out all available games at some point, which is very nearly impossible at most other serious online casinos.
The good news is, at BetGold you will be able to chase life-changing jackpots, which includes Mega Moolah.
Whilst we may be missing some of our favourite game providers here, you won’t have to worry about a lack of awesome games or some fun distraction.
Promotions and bonuses
Bonuses can be accessed via a prominent link wherever you are in the casino or sportsbook. BetGold has plenty on offer, though they are not going overboard.
Up to INR 10,000 are available to new players, which you will get after making your first initial deposit of at least INR 1,000 and wagering it once on odds of 1.8 or higher. Bonus conditions are exhaustive here and you should read them before claiming this or any other bonus.
For instance, you may claim a INR 2,000 free bet or supercharge your winnings with a boost.
Various casino and live casino deposit bonuses are available as well, though bonus conditions are tough, and we would have loved to see some free spins as well.
BetGold provides information about banking options separately, which you can find via the side menu in the sportsbook for instance. In a pop-up window deposit and withdrawal options are listed and you can filter according to your country and currency.
If you select INR (Euro and USD are available as well), you will be able to make deposits via AstroPay, Neteller, Skrill, ecoPayz and MuchBetter. Whilst AstroPay is not available for withdrawals, you will get the option to withdraw via bank transfer as well.
For each payment option the fees (free), transaction times and transaction limits are listed, which is handy. Currently, there is a limit of up to INR 400,000 per transaction but keep in mind that BetGold may have limits beyond that.
Whilst this all good, we would have been okay with credit or debit cards as payment options as well.
A little speech bubble at the bottom of the screen on the right-hand side indicates the live chat window. If no one is available to chat (which is unfortunately often the case), you are asked to enter your details, email and your message, which will then be send onto the customer service team.
Emails are answered in a timely manner, however, and you can expect a professional and helpful reply.
We would prefer to see an improved live chat option, however, but this will hopefully be improved as BetGold continues to grow.
Green, white and yellow highlights are the colour of choice at BetGold. It’s not the most attractive or modern (let alone sleek) colour scheme we have seen, but it conveys more of a classic feeling. The website remains thoroughly modern, however, and the user-interface is super easy to use.
It all looks lovely and simple with no chance to get lost somewhere. Navigation is a breeze and especially the sportsbook is without unnecessary clutter or distraction. This makes the whole betting experience all the more pleasant here and it also translates nicely to your mobile browser and the smaller screen.
Games, too, load quickly and easily and the casino is sorted into useful sections, making it easy to find what you are looking for.
We may not like the colour scheme very much, but beyond that BetGold offers a very pleasant browsing experience.
BetGold is not just new in India, they are still very new in general. They definitely offer a professional gambling and betting environment and their cricket betting options are solid if not as comprehensive as we’ve seen elsewhere.
There are plenty of other sports to bet on and it will always be fun, especially since the sportsbook is so easy to use and regular promotions are available as well.
If you want to play a good range of games on top of that, BetGold has you covered. They may be a little picky with their providers, but we have surprisingly little to complain about regardless.
BetGold may not offer everything you are looking for, but they have a solid offer, a trustworthy license and an easy-to-use site that make them worth a visit.
