YesBets Review of Bookee
The team here at Yesbets were recently given the opportunity to take the all new betting App from Bookie for a test drive. We’re constantly striving for that perfect match, that one selection that ticks all the boxes, that is so positively inquisitive that we can’t say no and we just have to swipe right. Bookee brings the format from those ever so popular dating apps to the world of betting. Read on to find out how we got on.
It was a cold Tuesday evening and I was sat on the sofa, it was Champions League night and I was sat on the sofa. Now I for one like to make these games a little more interesting with when I have a little flutter on a few of the results. Bookie would be my betting App for the evening. How many times would I swipe right and find the match of my dreams?
After signing up and making my deposit, I was greeted with a card, a juicy price boost, Man City, Man Utd and Bayern Munich all to win, a tasty 6/4, but something nagged at me, surely Munich and City had it in the bag, but Man Utd had me feeling worried, could I take this Acca on with United in a real rut of form? Also, you don’t want to swipe right on the first proposition that you see, so it was a swipe left from me.
As I continued to swipe left, I came across a new customer offer, Man City, Man Utd and Juventus all to win, boosted to a fantastic 20/1 (max bet £1). Again Manchester United were included and so I had to swipe left yet again.
Next came a fanciful bet of Juventus to win 3-0 and Ronaldo to score a hat trick. The odds? 94-1. I like a long shot, so I stuck £1 on just for a bit of fun.
I still needed to find that bet that I really thought would bring home the bacon and as I swiped I came across a bet that really peaked my interest. Man Utd, score draw, a juicy 6-1. As I’ve already mentioned, United’s form hasn’t been great recently and Young Boys can actually play a bit. I couldn’t see them winning, but nicking a goal and get a draw, that could genuinely happen and 6-1 seemed like a decent price, so on went my precious £10 by swiping right.
One of the most positive aspects around the Bookee concept is the literally endless number of selections that are presented in front of you. OK some of them weren’t my cup of tea (Luke Shaw to get a hattrick at 250-1 was still far to unattractive for me), but that’s the beauty of it you can keep swiping until you find something that you like.
There have been many times when I’ve been on traditional bookmaker sites and apps where I have been overwhelmed by the number of markets and permutations. Don’t get me wrong, I like to study my bets and compare the odds, but sometimes, if I’m on the sofa just kicking back watching the game, it’s nice to just be spoon-fed some options and this is where Bookee excels.
I enjoyed the experience a lot and even though my bet didn’t win, I’ll be back to swipe again in the very near future.
