You may not have heard of LiveScore Bet, but if you’re a footie fan in the UK you’ve almost certainly heard of LiveScore.com. They are one of the oldest and best-established live scores providers who’ve been supplying up-to-date scores on sports for over 20 years. LiveScore also supplies free live streams of selected games across 200 countries.
Now, LiveScore are finally dipping their toes in the waters of regulated online sports betting. LiveScore Bet offers betting on everything from football and horse racing to tennis, boxing and US sports like NFL. You can also take advantage of regular price boost bonuses and join free-to-enter competitions such as Squads.
And this wouldn’t be a LiveScore betting site without some great in-play betting options. You can bet live on dozens of sports, watch highlights or follow live streams throughout the day.
You can claim free bets as soon as you open your LiveScore Bet account. Signing up only takes a few minutes, and you’ll have to provide your name, address, email address and UK phone number. You can also set deposit limits before you complete the registration process.
To claim your welcome bonus, sign up for a LiveScore Bet account and make a minimum deposit of £10. You’ll receive 4 x £10 free bets to use on sports of your choice.
How to claim your LiveScore Bet welcome bonus:
Terms and Conditions: What you need to know
Our opinion: The welcome bonus at LiveScore Bet is in line with many UK bookmakers. Not only do you receive 1 free bet, you’ll receive 4 in total. However, you will have to make a bet before receiving your free wagers – a simple deposit won’t suffice.
You can access a range of ongoing retention bonuses as a regular LiveScore Bet customer. Deals can change regularly, but if you’re a fan of accas and prize contests, you’re in luck.
SQUADS: LiveScore Bet’s ‘SQUADS’ promotion is a free-to-play contest where you can earn real money by selecting a team of footballers. Simply choose up to 5 footballers for each round of footie fixtures and score cash every time your player scores.
Free Acca Bets: Accas are big business at LiveScore Bet, and to celebrate the site regularly offers free wagers to gamblers. Just place qualifying accas at the required odds to claim a free acca bet to use on sports of your choice.
Best Odds Guaranteed: Any UK site offering betting on horse racing has to feature Best Odds Guaranteed. If the starting price (SP) is larger than the price you take, LiveScore Bet will honour the higher of the two odds.
Extra Place Races: If you love horse racing, you’ll enjoy the extra places paid on selected meets. Just look out for the white EXTRA PLACE banners on select races which guarantee more value for your each-way wagers.
Price Boosts: Regular odds boosts are offered at LiveScore Bet on sports as diverse as football, tennis and baseball. You’ll find the daily Price Boosts for all sports clearly displayed in the lobby. We also like the special odds on ‘Squads’ featuring total goals or shots on target for five selected footballers that day.
You can bet on over 30 different sports at LiveScore Bet, including football, horse racing and tennis. There’s also a full range of outright, pre-game and in-play betting on sports as diverse as table tennis, rugby and American Football.
Football: By far, football provides the biggest range of betting markets at LiveScore Bet. You can bet on outrights/ante-post or pre-game on every game in England, France or Spain, or take your pick of leagues spread right across the globe. The Quick Links tab is really useful and gives you instant access to all bets covering the day’s live games, UK football, Asian games, or elite European footie.
Horse Racing: Any self-respecting UK betting site offers markets on horse racing. Luckily, LiveScore Bet doesn’t disappoint. You can bet on all UK and Irish racing throughout the week, as well as big meets in France, the US, and Australia.
You can use the Horse Racing tab to filter meetings, future races or specials, or cut straight to the big UK & Ireland courses with a single click. The list of betting specials is a little limited and mainly covers odds on things like the first/last 4 SP favourites to place. Look out too for Racing Post Spotlights – up-to-the-minute stats and tips on the big races of the day. These include full details for jockeys, horses and trainers.
Tennis: Tennis bettors will be salivating at the prospect of gambling on a range of ATP, Challenger and Grand Slam markets. Live stats are available through the match tracker, and there’s a full selection of live betting for most matches. While smaller Challenger and ATP matches have just the one 1-2 markets (Player Win), bigger Grand Slam matches have many more markets, especially when it comes to in-play.
Cricket: You can place cricket bets at LiveScore Bet for all major Tests, as well as major championships such as the World Cup and IPL. Back the winner/draw or go in-play to predict the method of dismissal on the next wicket or time of next wicket fall.
US Sports: American Football, NBA basketball, and MLB baseball provide dozens of markets for the canny US punter. The number of markets for individual NFL games isn’t great (winner, spread and total over/under were the major markets) but you can bet on college games too. Click on the ‘Specials’ tab to bring up some great pre-season combos such as Highest Win Percentage/Player Receiving Yards.
Other Sports: As well as football and horse racing, LiveScore Bet offers markets on over 20 other sports, including boxing, MMA and rugby. You can also bet on the new craze of professional e-Sports leagues, plus TV and politics specials.
As a fairly new online sports betting site, LiveScore Bet rightly looks and feels really fresh. We found it super-easy to find our favourite betting markets and place bets. Best of all, the handy A-Z sports menu won’t disappear when you reduce the size of your browser window.
You can quickly pin any sport to add it to your ‘Favourited’ list in the lobby. There are also quick links to get straight to all in-play, live-streamed, and outright markets.
The betting slip is perfectly functional and easy to view. You can toggle between Singles, Accas, and Multiples to see the total odds, or hit the dustbin symbols to instantly remove your selection.
We also love the My Dashboard function which shows your open bets and current promotions. You can also bring up a full history of settled and cashed-out bets.
You can install a full mobile LiveScore Bet sports betting app on your iOS or Android device. Simply navigate towards the Apple App Store or Google Play Store to download the app. You’ll need to be running iOS 12.0+ and have 155MB+, so it might require a more up-to-date iPhone or iPod Touch. For Android users, you’ll need 61MB of memory and be running 5.0+ on your device.
If your handset can handle the app, you’re in for a treat. Watch live video streams on UK races through Racing TV, and bring up all the biggest promotions and best odds with a single tap.
We also love the match tracker for live betting which fills up the screen in portrait mode as the game goes on. With a simple tap, you can toggle between latest odds, information, H2H stats, and more.
LiveScore Bet boasts a few cool features that you’d come to expect from a more established UK bookmaker. Everything is clearly displayed in the lobby and there’s no hunting around needed to find the features you need.
Live Streams: You can follow live streams and match trackers on many selected sports at LiveScore Bet. In reality, live streaming is available mostly on horse racing as long as you’re logged in and have cash in your account. You must place a bet worth at least £1 to watch Irish streams. Alternatively, you can follow the match tracker on in-play markets from football to tennis, badminton, and cricket.
In-Play Betting: The range if in-running markets at LiveScore Bet is something else. Click the ‘In-Play’ tab in the lobby to bring up all current and upcoming live markets.
Under individual sports, you can filter out the markets (e.g. Popular, Goals, Handicaps or Correct Score) and follow live odds as they change in real time. Don’t forget to click on the Match Tracker icon to follow the action live and check all the in-game stats.
Cash Out: Many pre-game and in-play sports markets carry the Cash Out option. With Cash Out, you can settle your bet early and take a quick profit before the game ends.
LiveScore Bet’s range of payment options is perhaps its weakest point. At time of review, you can only deposit using PayPal or a Visa or Mastercard debit card. Minimum deposits are £10, but the £20,000 maximum load is pretty handy. There are no fees applied to any deposits at LiveScore Bet.
The same goes for withdrawals. You’ll only be able to cash out using the same payment method you deposited with. Withdrawals are free but you will have to wait a few days to receive your funds following a processing period.
Payment options (minimum deposit amount):
LiveScore Bet uses the latest 128-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption to protect players’ details. In addition, LiveScore Bet promises third-party fraud checks on all depositors using debit cards to make transactions. Electronic verification is used to ensure you’re old enough to open a LiveScore Bet account.
Live Score Bet also operates a good approach to responsible gambling. The site promotes services such as GAMSTOP and BeGambleAware, plus you can set deposit limits through your personal account page.
Set daily deposit limits from £10-£500,000 or monthly limits up to the same amount. You’ll find a full list of spending control and time management tools under the ‘Safer Gambling’ tab in the LiveScore Bet lobby.
We found the customer service at LiveScore Bet to be useful and friendly. You can get a pretty quick email response (1-2 days) by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org, or using a 24-hour live chat service. UK phone support (0808 164 3700) is also available throughout the day.
We’ve always been big fans of LiveScore.com so it’s great to see LiveScore Bet finally launching for the UK market. The good news is that the range of betting markets and offers easily matches the kind of service you’ve always loved at LiveScore.com.
As you’d expect, live in-play betting is the star here, with dozens of markets available through the day, as well as streams. Sign up today and claim your welcome free bets.
