The frequently heard slogan ‘No Guts, No Glory’ (freely translated: no guts, no fame) fits perfectly with the gambling world. Sometimes you have to have the guts and courage to take risks, or you will never get rich and successful with sports betting. In that respect, the name Guts is therefore perfectly chosen. The bookmaker has been making progress since 2013. While Guts probably isn’t the first bookmaker to pop into your head, more and more players are taking a gamble now and then. The excellent offer and attractive odds certainly contributed to this. Maybe Guts is also a bookmaker that catches your attention.
Guts goes for the optimal gaming experience
Guts is a bookmaker with high ambitions. When launched in 2013, the gambling company announced that Guts should become an online casino/sportsbook with an optimal gaming experience. Beautiful design, fast payouts, and proactive customer service were just a few of the spearheads. But in the end, a bookmaker must mainly offer a place where you can bet safely. In terms of licenses, Guts has arranged everything well. There are both licenses from the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA / CL1 / 954/2014 and MGA / CL1 / 955/2014) and the UK Gambling Commission. If that doesn’t inspire confidence?
Guts Sportsbook: typical website for a bookmaker
In the sportsbook of Guts, you immediately end up with an action photo from the football field. It is clear: you have to be here for extra excitement and especially a lot of sport. The sportsbook is organized in a way that is usual with bookmakers. On the left is a long list of sports and competitions, while on the right you will find your bet slip. But most attention is, of course, focused on the list of games that are in progress or about to start (of course, with the odds for a 1×2 bet).
Due to the well-known and beautiful website design, you can easily find your way on the Guts website. A handy extra service is the list of live scores. This way, you can see at a glance how the matches are played on the different sport fields. The extensive sports statistics also ensure that you start the bet well prepared. You do not have to start looking up the internet for information about the players or teams. Because Guts has listed all the information, you need.
An exclusive membership for the most loyal Guts players
It may be attractive to be a member of several bookmakers at the same time. This strategy certainly has its advantages. This way, you are eligible for a welcome bonus several times, and you can also choose the bookmaker with the best odds for each match. The bookmakers themselves are, of course, less charmed by players who keep all options open. They do everything they can to make you a loyal customer.
Guts is a bookmaker who likes to spoil loyal customers. Because if you stand out positively, you may be invited to join the Guts Loyalty Squad. With this exclusive membership, you receive many exceptional bonuses, and you get priority when you request a payout. You also benefit from professional guidance from your personal Squad manager. It is ideal if you bet with large amounts. The Guts Loyalty Squad is unfortunately only accessible to the most avid gamblers for whom a few hundred euros is a pittance. So there is a good chance that you will miss out on those nice extras from the VIP club.
Which bonus promotions can you take advantage of?
The Guts Loyalty Squad may not be for you. Fortunately, some nice bonus promotions are waiting for the players who prefer not to bet with large amounts. It starts with a 100% deposit bonus as a welcome gift. Please note which payment method you use. Deposits via Skrill, Neteller, and Paysafecard do not count. If you use these payment methods for your first deposit, you will immediately lose your right to the welcome bonus.
The welcome bonus is, fortunately, not the only chance to get some extra play money. On the promotion page of Guts, you will occasionally find exciting promotions that you can undoubtedly take advantage of. A small side note: the focus is mainly on bonuses for the online casino. Sports enthusiasts are less successful, although, during the year, there are a number of promotions with which you earn a free bet or extra play money.
Guts offers more than 40 leagues and countless betting options
Bonuses and benefits for VIP members are great extras. However, the offer must also be good if you want to register with a bookmaker. Guts has the right bet for anyone who loves sports. There are more than 25 different sports, with (as with almost all bookmakers) the most attention is focused on football. Ice hockey, basketball, handball, and tennis follow at an appropriate distance.
Those who like to bet on football games have over 40 leagues to choose from. It concerns the major leagues of Germany, England, Spain, and Italy, but also Iranian, Greek, and Mexican football is represented. Especially in the more significant leagues, Guts Sports offers many betting options. Which football player scores the first or last goal? How many goals does the home or away team score? And what position is on the scoreboard after the final signal? Guts impresses when it comes to the many betting options. You immediately feel like taking a bet.
Guts Sports Live betting via your mobile
As a contemporary bookmaker, Guts also has a section with live bets. Because you have to respond quickly to these bets, it is very pleasant that the Guts website has been made suitable for smartphones and tablets. Unfortunately, there is no Guts App yet, but the mobile website is a great way to save yourself. A disadvantage is that this website often works a bit slower than you would like. Especially in live betting, this can be quite annoying.
Odds: Guts can compete with other bookmakers
In the past, Guts often bet low when determining the odds. There has been some change in the meantime. The Premier League football match between Liverpool FC and Manchester United shows us what position Guts is in. With a 1×2 bet, the bookmaker bets on the following odds:
● (1) Win for Liverpool: 3.10
● (x) Draw: 3.70
● (2) Win for Manchester United: 2.20
Guts is certainly not the bookmaker with the best figures. For example, a bet at Betsson is a lot more attractive. Here the odds are namely: (1) 3.15, (x) 3.80, (2) 2.26. However, compated to several other bookmakers, Guts Sports showing higher odds. For example, a big name like Unibet shows these odds: (1) 3.00, (x) 3.75, (2) 2.15. Guts is certainly not doing badly as a sportsbook nowadays.
Money matters: payouts with a small surcharge
Money is, of course, an essential factor when betting on sports or any other major event. So it is helpful if everything runs safely and smoothly. Guts has the financial part well done. You can deposit money with VISA, MasterCard, Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard, and iDEAL, among others. Please note that for deposits with your credit card, you pay a surcharge of 2.5%.
The minimum deposit is € 10 for all methods. You can request payouts as soon as you have € 20 or more in your account. We recommend that you increase the amount as much as possible before you press the payout button. Guts is one of the few bookmakers that charges for this. For directly transferring to your bank account, you pay a commission of € 2.50. Sin. On the other hand, Guts arranges the payouts quickly. Your request is usually processed within 1 to 2 working days.
Customer service: professional and extremely friendly
When you first start betting at Guts, there are undoubtedly several questions that you would like to see answered. Because what do you do if it turns out that your personal details have not been entered correctly? And what about depositing money. Guts has created a separate FAQ page for general questions. But since this is rather brief, you may end up with customer service. And that is certainly not a punishment. The customer service is easily accessible (24/7 via live chat or [email protected]), and the staff are available to you quickly and professionally. Although a surcharge for payouts is not immensely customer-friendly, the helpdesk is. That immediately makes up for a lot.
Bookmaker Guts: our final verdict
At first glance, Guts seems like a great bookmaker. The website looks good, even an excellent web design, if you ask us. Also, the offer on Guts.com is quite extensive, and the welcome bonus also makes it interesting to register. Unfortunately, you also encounter some negatives when you delve a bit more into the website. The costs for requesting a payout must be abolished. And if you want to take advantage of a gentle bonus action, you better go to the casino instead of the sportsbook. Yet Guts is certainly doing well. For example, the odds have already improved a lot recently. It offers a perspective for the future. In a few years, Guts may well be a name that certainly belongs in the list with Unibet, Betsson, Bwin, and other major bookmakers.
