First appearing as an on-course bookmaker in 2021, AK Bets' punter-friendly approach has seen the company make rapid strides. Now in 2023, they bring their business to the online scene with a slick sports betting and casino site. Here we take a closer look at the sports betting side of things, including information on the site design, sports and markets available and more.

Our Experience of AK Bets

The AKBets site is impressive for such a new entry to the market, with the slick design, layout, and functionality being more than a match for many more established sites. Upon logging in, you will be immediately familiar with the layout, which features the list of sports to the left, selections and odds in the main central area, and the betting slip to the right.

The betting slip is quick and easy to use and contains all the most popular bet types, including singles, accas, and popular combination bets such as Lucky 15s, Yankees, and Patents. A minimum requirement for a betting site, you would think, but not all companies get it right. We also liked the returns feature, which displays your potential winnings at the top of the slip, removing the need to scroll down every time you add a selection.

At the time of writing, the promotions were mainly aimed at casino players, but slots fans will find a lot to like in the Slots Club, which gives the chance to earn 50 Free Spins every week!

It was also pleasing to see a site come to market with a Telephone betting service. Once such a popular betting option, this is now a rarely-sighted option – handing AKBets a definite edge in this area. Be sure to check out the site's Twitter page @AKBets87, as much for the amusing content on offer as the Special Bets and Promotions.

Sports & Markets Available

The total of 24 individual sports is a little lower than the biggest sites online but includes all of the sports that most punters are interested in betting on. The betting staples of Football, Horse Racing and Greyhounds are all covered in depth, as are the major US sports of NFL, Basketball, Baseball and Ice Hockey, whilst the Politics and TV sections add variety to the mix.

The horse racing section is particularly eye-catching, with the betting market display – featuring a handy price movements graphic – being a cut above much of the competition.

Fans of Live Betting are also well catered for, with the site's extensive In-Play section easily reached via a tab at the top of the screen.

AK Bets Mobile Betting

AKBets certainly have their finger on the modern betting pulse and offer an excellent app, which is available to download for Android and iOs powered devices.

Summary

AKBets will likely appeal to many punters, with their focused customer-first approach and telephone betting option being a breath of fresh air to the online betting scene. The odds on offer are very competitive across a range of sports, with the only negative being the absence of a sign-up offer or ongoing sports promotions. However, it should be remembered that this is a very new site, and more features may come in time.
