When new gambling companies enter in to what’s already a very saturated market, its often tough for them to get a decent footing, especially in the early days. ComeOn fall into this bracket and whilst they aren’t so ‘new’ anymore, they’ve still had to bide their time before becoming a real menace to some of the bigger sportsbooks.
ComeOn are very much a UK and EU focused gambling company and are regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. They are actually based in Malta, but as this is a former British colony, they are allowed to be regulated from within the UK.
They offer both sports and casino products to their customer base, of which you can access through the one account. Live casino has been a recent introduction to their portfolio, which is one that is continuing to grow.
Sports Betting at ComeOn
Sports betting is arguably where the companies main focus lies and with this comes a certain responsibility to provide an in-depth sportsbooks for their punters. As we have mentioned, the industry is very saturated so ComeOn have had to work in new ideas to create buzz and more importantly, improve their existing player database.
ComeOn don’t actually have a dedicated downloadable app, but their bookmaker is responsive so this means it can be viewed on a mobile device in a way that is designed for a heightened user experience. Instead of downloading, all you need to do is access the ComeOn site and it will immediately direct you to the mobile ready version.
Sport Welcome Bonus
There are in fact two bonuses on offer from ComeOn. The first is a £10 free bet which you’ll receive after betting £10. Minimum odds to qualify are 1/2 and it can be on any event.
The second is a 100% matched casino bonus worth up to £200 which you’ll receive on your first deposit into the casino. These two offers can be claimed in conjunction with each other, meaning you can claim the free bet, and then also claim the casino bonus (should you want to).
As well as these two bonuses you’ll receive 10 free spins when you sign up with no deposit required.
Odds and Markets
The pricing at ComeOn is actually very competitive, which isn’t always the case for the smaller/younger bookmakers in the industry. We carried out a small sample of about 20 bets just to see how they faired and the results were positive. They were about industry standard for each bet with a couple being higher than that. Obviously, sample size is very small, but should give you an idea at least.
Market depth is excellent for football betting, but other sports do lack somewhat. There was a surprising omission of horse racing in their catalogue meaning they are missing out on one of the biggest sports for UK punters. However, the range of sports aside from that are really good, with around 20 or to choose from, again sitting right up there with some of the bigger sports books in the industry.
We were delighted to see that ComeOn now have a dedicated live betting section, where the number of games were again impressive. Like most EU facing bookmakers, football is the heartbeat to the live betting section and with this comes a plethora of markets. In fact, as far as we could see, they turn pretty much every game that they offer pre match markets on, live.
This section also includes a match centre as well, meaning you can see in real time when teams attack and where they are on the pitch. Those of a certain age will be able to associate this with the old radio football commentary and zonal numbering, although a lot more advanced!
One of ComeOn’s latest affiliations has been with ENetScores to provide their punters with a stats section. This means you can access a load of data such as head to heads, live standings, form, over/under goals, player stats, handicap, games and more, to form more concrete betting decisions.
Sportsbook offers for existing players are few and far between unfortunately. The one offer that they run every week is their Premier League Footcast. This means that you need to select 8 correct results for those weekends Premier League fixtures to have a share of £5,000. If you manage to guess all 10 then you win the £10,000 jackpot.
Casino Games at ComeOn
The first thing that we wanted to mention with the casino section is the fact that there is actually a casino section. It may sound daft, but ComeOn are a young brand so to see both a sportsbook and casino be released at the same time is a really positive move in our eyes.
Casino Welcome Bonus
As we mentioned above, the casino section shares their bonus offer with the sportsbook but it can only be cleared via the casino. With this you get a 100% match on your opening deposit between £10 – £200. The bonus can be accessed by signing up and simply making a deposit, from there the bonus will hit your account immediately for you to start using.
You will need to play through bonus amount 35 times at the casino and, as mentioned, it can only be cleared via casino games. The promotion is only available to UK punters.
Software and Games
The casino is powered by Microgaming and NetEnt, two of the biggest software providers in the industry. With this, ComeOn offer up an impressive portfolio of almost 400 slots, table games and video games to choose from.
As with most online casinos, it’s the slots section where ComeOn really excel and with this comes over 300 titles to choose from. The biggest games include Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, Mega Fortune and Jack Hammer. Each of these has been around for a good while now and with this comes a polished and exciting example.
The jackpot section includes 12 titles, each with a differentiating amount to be won. Probably the most impressive is the likes of Dark Knight and Mega, who at the time of writing, have over £2million in jackpot money to be won. It’s been reported that it’s not uncommon for these to rise to over £5million in the past, so genuinely life changing sums of money on the line, for little outlay.
The casino is totally browser based, so no download option is on offer. But, unlike the sportsbook, the casino section has a dedicated and downloadable casino app for iPhone and Android devices. The app works really well and offers up all the titles that you would find on the online site.
When playing at the ComeOn casino you’ll be able to earn player points for every penny you spend. The points can then be used to access prizes from their online shop, which may include free spins, free money, bonuses and reload deposit bonuses. Obviously, the more points you have at your disposal, the more you will get in return.
You will be able to access a really good range of payment options from ComeOn, which include Visa, MasterCard, Debit, Credit cards, Maestro, Entro Pay, Skrill, Neteller and Paysafecard. It’s worth noting that withdrawals cannot be made to Maestro and Paysafecard.
Withdrawals via either cards or bank transfer take 2-7 days and with this there is a minimum amount of £14 and maximum of £2908 for cards and £7271 for bank transfer. Interestingly, bank transfer process time is about as quick as we have seen in the industry. Withdrawals via an e-wallet will be processed within 24 hour and has the same withdrawal limits at the bank transfer.
