Followers of live sports, or punters in general, may have noticed Marathonbet pop into their view over the last couple of years. But who are they, what are they and, most importantly, what can they do for us that others can’t?

Active since 1997, to those who could find them, the firm have upped their advertising campaign in recent years to appeal to the mainstream online gambling market. They have enjoyed partnerships in football with Manchester United, Hibs and Malaga. Here’s what they’re good at.

2. Once the panel has been scratched off you’ll see the promo code 2017 for Marathonbet has been revealed.
Note that if you don’t need a working code to activate this particular offer it’ll say so above. In this scenario we instead apply the promotion to a new window of your web browser. Continue in there and you’ll be eligible.
How does the offer work?
Marathonbet are currently offering new customers a 100% matched free bet, up to the value of £20. What that means, for those unfamiliar with how these deals work – it’s fairly common with online betting firms – is they will match your first deposit, up to £20. So, all you have to do is open an account, deposit and bet anything from £10 plus and they will match it. Please remember there’s a cap at £20. Deposit £10 you’ll get a £10 free bet, deposit £50 or £100, you’ll get the same £20 free bet.
To get your slice of the pie there are a few points of note. Firstly, your qualifying first bet must be placed on a selection with odds of 4/5 or better, so you can’t bet on a 1/100 certainty just to nick the freebie. They’ve seen that coming, and covered themselves against it. Having said that, there are enough 4/5 shots out there that will win like certainties, so it’s not worth getting hung up on. Having claimed your freebie, and used it in your favour, you must bet through it four times before you can withdraw any winnings.
This offer is available to new customers only who open an account and make a first bet, and after your first wager is confirmed, you then have 90 days to take advantage of the bonus. You will need to submit personal details, such as name, address and bank details to get started, and selected customers may be asked to verify their account when withdrawing any winnings. It sounds a tad unfair at first, but really it’s a basic measure to ensure you are who you say you are and to protect themselves from underage gambling.

All in all, we’re very impressed with that new customer offer, and it seems like there’s a firm finally listening to customers and breaking away from the boring old tried and rested methods, one thinking outside of the box, the way it should be. That was a mere appetiser to what we found available to those who had already signed up however. As stated, they’re big on loyalty, and prove it again here.
So, you’ve got your welcome bonus and there’s £10 dropping into your account every week – but what have you done for us lately? Well, there’s a plethora of ongoing offers and price boosts to take your fancy. For example, in the horse racing, those who love a bet on the live action have plenty to shout about. Place a bet on the live ITV races and get your money back if a selection finishes second, beaten by a length or less.
Marathonbet pride itself on taking bets on just about everything a customer can think of, and as well as offering their markets on horse racing, football, dogs and tennis, by far the most popular bets in the gambling world, they also cover a number of niche markets and specials. On the desktop homepage, running down the right-hand side of your screen, you will find their list of the hot topics of the day, including the major horse racing meeting, best football match and sports game. This allows you to quickly get involved in live TV betting and the sports everyone’s talking about.
They take it a step further however, and under the specials tab down the left-hand side of your desktop you will find these rare markets. Examples of the specials bets offered here could be your take on the next sports personality of the year, James Bond actor, politics, both UK and USA, and the next available PFA Awards. These are designed to make Marathonbet stand out from the pack, while giving players a long-term interest, and at great value too. The earlier you play the specials markets, the better the price you’ll be offered.
You’ll find when reading our reviews of some of the other major bookies, particularly those that are big on promotions, going for the WOW factor – something shiny to catch your eye, and a big price for them to shout about over social media. Often these big odds are restricted to £1 stakes, or something similar. Marathonbet seem to shy away from the glitz and glamour, concentrating on giving you great prices on the most popular markets. So, what you’re missing in promos and offers, you’re more than making up for in a steady stream of competition beating prices.

Marathonbet mobile and app
Flicking through reviews on the app store, you get a feeling that it’s a case of pass marks, but must do better if they have any ambitions to match up to the big boys. There are sprinklings of good reviews, but the best they can say in support is that it’s easy to use. That is, for us, a major plus point, betting on the go you want to get on with no fuss and no time wasted. However, we do agree that it should be the minimal you expect.
There’s no lack of poor reviews either, mainly concentrating on the fact that there’s better elsewhere. The lack of a decent cash out option is a recurring problem, something that is now commonplace in the industry, while more tech savvy users point out the number of ways it lags behind the more popular betting apps. After testing we’ll keep it simple and say it takes bets, and allows you to get on the markets you’re after. Nothing more, or less.

Live Chat allows you to speak to a member of the team instantly. Simply type your issue into the chat box and you will receive a response through the same panel. Most problems can be sorted there and then, but anything that has to be escalated can be done so here, and you can ask to be called or emailed back at every step.
The help section provides a glossary of information on the frequently asked questions from customers, but if that’s not to your liking, phone and email is there to be used, and we’ve found that the first line of enquiry staff are trained to tackle your problems without having to pass you around. Personally, FAQ section is the best option we’ve found.
Players can deposit or withdraw funds using all major platforms. From credit and debit cards they also accept Neteller, Skrill, and lesser known methods such as Entropay and exopayz. The more popular methods allow you to deposit from as little as £5, while some options are limited to a £10 deposit minimum.
Withdrawals are in most currencies and are subject to the standard 3 – 5 working days waiting period before the funds hit your bank account. That is, unless you’re using the likes of paysafecard and Neteller, where any winnings are transferred to you within three hours of requesting funds. It must be said, the range of options here makes them amongst the most convenient, and secure, companies out there.
