Matchbook Casino Review

Matchbook is a peer to peer betting exchange which also has a small but perfectly formed casino and live casino.

Matchbook

Matchbook is first and foremost a peer-to-peer sports betting exchange and has been around since 2004 (the exchange, that is,the casino and live casino areas are considerably newer).  You probably already know what exchange betting is but in case you don’t – instead of the usual sports betting arrangement where the bookie sets the odds and the player decides whether or not to bet at those odds, players take both ends of the bet.  So whether you can bet on an event, how much you can bet and the odds you get are all dependent on someone being prepared to bet the opposite.  Matchbook puts both ends together and takes a cut.

As well as having been in business for close to 20 years, it’s one of the very few online gambling sites to have the highest level of player funds protection. The exchange part of the site also features the innovative Matchbook Zero initiative which allows one bet to be placed on certain football and horse racing events with zero margin and zero commission.

Matchbook Casino is really designed to give exchange users something extra to entertain them rather than as a standalone casino and the selection of games is relatively small with only NetEnt, Red Tiger and Big Time Gaming as suppliers; there’s a few exclusives in there plus some absolute classics including Bonanza and Dead Or Alive. The most significant progressive jackpot slot on offer is NetEnt’s Mega Fortune, and one of Matchbook’s own blackjack games also has a substantial progressive jackpot.

The live casino is by Evolution with roulette, blackjack, baccarat and poker plus first person and live host versions of various game shows.

Finally there is the Virtual Sports tab where players can bet on instant and scheduled virtual (simulated) sports events including football, horses, greyhounds, speedway and velodrome.

Claiming the casino welcome offer at Matchbook can be a slightly confusing process;

  1. While you are registering you will keep seeing the sports offer and not the casino offer
  2. You need to register and make a deposit BEFORE you can claim the casino offer
  3. You can then choose the level at which you want to “Buy-In” to the offer.  This commits you to playing that part of your deposit (and starting to fill the wagering requirement) on slots only.
  4. You’ll receive the bonus when you buy-in, but you won’t receive the spins part of the offer until AFTER you’ve completed the wagering requirement or consumed both buy-in and bonus.

To receive further casino offers, opt in to marketing communications in account settings and they’ll be sent to you when available.

For added security, you can enable 2FA (2 factor authentication) on your Matchbook account by connecting a third party authenticator app from the Play Store or App Store via a QR code.  The app generates a one time password on demand to be used in addition to your username and password when you log in.  Together with the high rating for customer funds protection this makes Matchbook Casino one of the safest places for UK players to play.

If you’re looking for a massive choice of games, Matchbook Casino is probably not the place for you – but if a smallish collection of great games appeals, it’s certainly worth a look, especially if you’re also interested in exchange betting.
