Review of Betboo sportsbook – online sport betting
Betboo is Turkish company by origin. It was founded in 2004 but began to work completely in 2005. Initially it tried to cover a big region of players. In 2010 Betboo sportsbook narrowed its direction of development, focusing only on the Turkish and Brazilian markets. Nevertheless the target audience is Brazil and Turkey. It is considered that the players from about 70 countries enjoy the service of BetBoo sportsbook.
Many language versions of the website disappeared after 2010 but later remained only Portuguese and Turkish. Betboo hides the official information about its clients and staff. Now Betboo belongs to the GVC Holdings Plc. In 2010 Betboo was recognized as the best sportsbook in South America.
Getting on betboo.com the customer can choose between the Turkish and Brazilian versions of the resource. There are two different sites, which differ even in design. None of the sites has additional language versions (only Turkish and Brazilian). It should be noted that the design of the Portuguese version of the website is significantly different from Turkish. The main colors of the Turkish version of Betboo are black, green, gray and orange. In the Portuguese version of Betboo dominate such colours as white, red and green.
Online resource does not have a welcome page: the customer immediately gets into the betting section. You can switch to another gaming platform (poker and casino) from the top menu. The sports section is arranged unconventionally: a full list of sports is horizontal and located at the top of the screen. On the left it is possible to find the block with the most popular links and banners. Traditionally in the center it is a live section. On the right you can find the code for betting, most popular bets and some other auxiliary blocks.
There is no technical menu with links to statistics, match centre, support, etc. The site has no statistical section. Provide additional options are only live-broadcast and mobile version. Thus, the functionality of betboo.com is not so good. There are no specific complaints concerning a technological level. The design is dark-green and old-fashioned. Site navigation is not convenient because there is no a compact menu with links to supporting materials. The line is unusual and illogical.
Generally, the site Betboo is inferior to European competitors. Neither Turkish nor Brazilian resources can be translated into any other language (there is no even English) that virtually eliminates the usage of the sites by residents of other countries.
Customers can look through FAQ centre but the information in it is only in Turkish or Portuguese. To communicate the support team you can use e-mail and online chat (only if you are logged). Telephone line is not available.
