LV BET Review
There’s one word, from what we can tell, that LV BET seems to define themselves by: new. The saying goes that new is always better, and the Malta-based company certainly seems to believe that. With a big presence over in Poland and a growing influence in countries around Europe, it certainly feels like they’re progressively starting to make more noise.
Our first impression, upon going onto the site, is that there is a lot going on. You’ll rarely know which direction to turn in, with a variety of different animations, pop ups and live betting opportunities. It’s not quite as concise as some of its rivals, but you certainly can’t fault them for trying to stand out. They serve as the official sponsor of PFC Victoria London and Wisla Krakow.
LV BET certainly go above and beyond with their betting options, because as you can see, they’ve also branched out into specific ‘specials’ to go alongside their sporting markets.
Football, basketball, ice hockey, tennis, volleyball, handball, baseball, American football, ski jumping, special bets, TV shows & movies, Oscar, MMA, boxing, cross-country skiing, biathlon, alpine skiing, speedway, snooker, darts, a variety of eSports events, Formula 1, cycling, futsal, golf, rugby league, rugby union, Aussie rules, Eurovision, cricket, chess, floorball, gaelic football, hurling, NASCAR, netball, politics, bandy, surfing, table tennis, water polo and squash.
Single and Combi bets tend to be what most betting users go for on the site, although the Acca Boost is a current offer that seems to be pretty popular – and rightly so.
In terms of their licensing, LV BET are currently operating under the existing gambling laws of Malta – which is where they are based. Fairload Limited is the official operator of the company, and is officially licensed by the UK Gambling Commission for business.

In terms of the deposits the minimum you can deposit per transaction is £10, with the maximum also being £4,000. You’re able to use a variety of different card companies in which to put your money in and take it out.
They’ve got a decent presence on social media, but that’s more on the Polish side of things than the English. They have 1,950 likes on Facebook and 552 followers on Twitter on the English page, whereas they’ve got a whopping 21,500 and 2,700 respectively on the Polish equivalents. In terms of that market, they certainly seem to possess something of a stronghold.
The registration page is incredibly disappointing, with blurry text to go alongside a poor interface setup. They’ll ask what language you’d like to speak between English and Polish, and yet they’ll only offer you one choice of currency in the form of GBP. They’ll also require your phone number and home address, making it one of the more personal bookies out there on the market today.
To conclude, we really like the direction LV BET is heading in. They’ve quite clearly got a strong infrastructure and an idea for what direction they wish to go in, which is more than can be said for some of their rivals. There are certainly issues that need to be fixed from an aesthetic standpoint, but there’s an obvious passion within what they’re doing.
It’s the kind of site we’d happily recommend to anyone looking for an alternative to what they already use, and while the mobile app is a little bit clunky, they’re the kind of company that will listen to user feedback and strive to be better. In that sense, they’ve got all the makings of a great bookmaker.
With that being said, the registration page, aka the method of actually beginning your journey with the company, is a massive black mark against them. If they’re going to play amongst the big boys they need to fix that, because it’s dreadful.
