TonyBet AT A GLANCE

The first question on the lips of any prospective customer of TonyBet is likely to be: Who’s Tony? The answer is Tony G, real name Antanas Guoga, a larger-than-life Lithuanian poker player who launched the brand in 2009.

As a result, there is a strong emphasis on casino games and a distinctly European feel to the TonyBet website and app. New sports betting customers have to go through a reassuringly stringent sign-up process. This includes submitting proof of ID and address – a level of security normally associated only with casino sites.

Once you have registered, an attractive TonyBet sign up bonus awaits. This comes in the form of a 100 per cent deposit bonus. If you place between £10 and £50 in your new account, you will have between £20 and £100 to play with. It must be pointed out, however, that this comes with strings attached. You need to place at least ten bets at your deposit amount at minimum odds of 1.65 (13/20) over the first 30 days before this becomes real money that you can withdraw.

TonyBet horse racing punters will find plenty to enjoy here. There is betting on all race meetings in the UK and Ireland, as well as overseas action from Australia and South Africa. Sadly, you won’t have the opportunity to watch your selection when it runs. Live streaming is absent from the TonyBet platforms, as is another asset that should be standard for the modern sportsbook, Best Odds Guaranteed.

Horse racing is clearly a new addition to the TonyBet offering – it doesn’t even feature on the app yet – and it is to be hoped that some of these extra facilities will be added in due course. The racing cards, in common with the rest of the website, are stylishly presented and the functionality of the site and app is excellent. Moving from race to race – and to other sports and the strong casino presence on the site – is quick and easy, as is placing a bet.There are moments that jar slightly, such as the weights for each horse being presented in pounds rather than stones and pounds, but overall TonyBet is a pleasant location to enjoy horse racing betting.

TonyBet PROS AND CONS

  • 100% deposit bonus

  • Cash Out function on horse racing

  • No horse racing on the app

  • No live streaming or best odds guaranteed

TonyBet Free Bets and Bonus Codes

The TonyBet welcome offer certainly catches the eye – who wouldn’t want a 100 per cent deposit bonus? You’ll need the bonus code TONY50 to sign up for this, with the promise that if you deposit a minimum of £10 and a maximum of £50, it will be doubled. That sounds like a significant boost to your bankroll, but it’s worth taking into account the conditions around the offer. You have to stake your initial deposit amount ten times before you will be able to withdraw your winnings as real money. However, this is an offer designed to increase your familiarity with your new sportsbook and to feel comfortable placing regular bets there.

TonyBet App

The increased ability to keep up with all the latest betting action, regardless of your location, is one of the many ways in which the sports betting industry has been revolutionised in recent decades. Punters now expect to be able to make their selections and place wagers quickly and easily through their mobile devices. TonyBet has bought into this desire with an app that provides much of the quality and functionality of the website.

Unfortunately, horse racing – a recent addition to the sports betting menu available on the site – is not yet available to bet on through the app. Mobile users can use their device’s web browser to call up the site and bet on TonyBet horse racing markets there. But we can only hope that horse racing makes it to the app soon – along with other attractive features for betting customers such as live streaming and Best Odds Guaranteed.

TonyBet In Play Betting and Cash Out

TonyBet offers in-play betting on a host of sports about which odds can be updated instantly, allowing people to play even after an event is under way. Sadly, the list of sports on which TonyBet offers in-play betting does not include horse racing. However, the Cash Out function – a close relation of in-play betting – is available.This means when you place a single bet and later feel it may not be successful, you will be offered an amount – usually slightly less than your stake – to cash out early. Similarly, if you have placed a multiple bet and want to cut your losses or take a profit before the final race takes place, you should be offered a figure to close your wager down early.

TonyBet Real User Feedback

The TonyBet reviews contributed by users happy to share their feedback suggests many customers enjoy the site and particularly appreciate the swift withdrawals available. “I have been a client on their site for more than a year now and they have been outstanding so far,” said one TonyBet review. “It’s a brilliant site, I’ve won and withdrawn from it – will be playing a food few times again,” promised another, while “site is pretty easy to use and fast” was another response.

One particularly effusive review had widespread praise for several aspects of the customer experience with TonyBet. “The best betting company I ever witnessed,” it read. “Easy and fast withdrawal, very polite support team.”
