The ComeOn Free Bet and bookmaker Review looks at the betting sites welcome offer and site features. Read our verdict at the end to see whether we rate the online bookmaker as a worthy player for sports betting.
ComeOn Sports is all about rewarding its new and existing customers. New punters will get treated to a cool £10 free bet as soon as they make their first deposit. The Bet £10, Get £10 welcome offer is available to all new players from the UK aged 18+. As soon as the system accepts your first qualifying bet (which happens within 24 hours), you’ll get your free bet token.
You can use the extra £10 in ComeOn’s sportsbook which features hundreds of matches and several dozen sports.
How to Claim the ComeOn Free Bet
As we already mentioned, the offer is available for all new players from the UK aged 18 and over. New customers will need to verify their phone number before being eligible for the promotion.
To claim the welcome offer, you need to register a new account first, opt into the promotion, and deposit a minimum of £10. Next, you’ll need to place a £10 stake in any sportsbook market at minimum odds of 4/5 or higher. This excludes each way bets, but all others are in play. Also, the welcome offer is only possible if you make your first deposit with Visa or MasterCard. Neteller, Skrill, and Paysafe card deposits are excluded from the welcome offer.
As soon as your qualifying bet is accepted, ComeOn will grant you a £10 free bet. You can use it on any sport and sports event in the next 14 days. Should you not use the free bet token within that period, it will be annulled. The free bet token can’t be exchanged for cash or redeemed on single and multiple bets. The stake will not be included in the winnings accrued with the free bet.
Layout and Design
Enter the website and you’ll immediately notice how simple ComeOn’s layout and design are. It’s a pretty barebones interface on the surface. Dig deeper, though, and you’ll find ComeOn as advanced as any major bookie.
The grey-green scheme suits the bookie nicely. Everything’s focused on the central area. You have the list of sports markets and featured events on the left, the betting options in the middle, and the slip to the right. Right above the central hub, there’s a ribbon featuring the most popular options. This includes in-play betting, horse racing, as well as promotions and ComeOn’s free bet club.
If you’re a newcomer, it won’t be hard for you to navigate ComeOn’s website. Everything is nicely organized, so you’ll find your favourites in a jiffy.
There are lots of markets in ComeOn’s rich offer you can bet on. Apart from those hugely popular ones such as football, you’ll find a great number of obscure events. The great news is that the odds are highly competitive in today’s online betting industry. You’ll find the best ones in those obscure markets we mentioned.
Football is the main highlight in ComeOn’s offer. There are over 500 events to bet on, all paired with hundreds of enticing markets. Apart from betting on outright favourites, you can bet on numerous team and individual markets plus all the popular markets such as handicaps. The list of alternative markets is pretty long which is music to every experienced punter’s ears.
As if all those sports markets weren’t enough, ComeOn has included a large number of esports betting events in its offer. It’s a booming market if we’re being honest, so the inclusion is not that surprising. And then there are the specials, where you can place a bet on Eurovision’s next winner or predict if the Tories will sit on the UK political “throne”. When it comes to sports markets, ComeOn has everything you’ll ever need.
ComeOn Mobile Betting
The layout and design of ComeOn’s website make it obvious that the bookie is aimed at mobile bettors. Enter the website on your phone’s browser and you can enjoy the same interface but this time optimized for mobile devices. The mobile version offers all the sports in the bookie’s long list in a familiar setting.
So, even though some will find the lack of a mobile app disappointing, we can confirm that ComeOn doesn’t really need it – everything worked great on our smartphone.
ComeOn’s pre-match market selection and odds are quite impressive, but the in-play market is where the bookie really shines. To be honest, ComeOn’s in-play betting platform can even rival some of the juggernauts in the industry. The number of markets is impressive and the number of live events you can bet on is not far behind.
Click on in-play betting and you’ll be presented with a variety of featured matches. To the right, you can see how many markets the bookie offers for that particular match. Select it and you’ll get a list of live markets. For example, if you picked a tennis match, you can bet on games and sets as well as who wins the upcoming point.
It’s a really deep live betting platform and clearly a focal point of this small, yet exciting bookie.
Help & Customer Support
If you have any questions or complaints, you can contact ComeOn’s customer support team via email or live chat. Click on the question mark on the main ribbon and you’ll find the FAQ as well as the live chat and email. There’s a search field where you can find answers to your problems – if the FAQ doesn’t have them, you can speak to a customer support agent via live chat.
ComeOn accepts deposits and withdrawals made with the most popular payment methods. There are Visa and MasterCard, entropay, Skrill, Neteller, Trustly, and even Apple Pay. The deposit and withdrawal limits are reasonable. What’s not so reasonable is that the bookie charges fees for deposits made with certain payment methods which is dated and unheard of in today’s market.
When it comes to withdrawals, punters will be disappointed to learn that the max withdrawal limits aren’t exactly high. They range between £4,000 for Visa and £8,000 for Neteller, which is simply not enough. All customers are allowed 2 free withdrawals in a month – after that, any withdrawal is going to set you back an additional £5.
We clearly liked ComeOn’s sportsbook. The layout and design are simple and intuitive, the sports markets and odds are impressive, and the deep live betting platform really caught us by surprise. However, ComeOn does suffer from some problems. The bookie really needs to revamp the payment method section. It charges deposit fees which is ancient. Furthermore, the max withdrawal limits are set pretty low. This is an area in need of immediate improvements, but everything else looks pretty solid to us.
