Here are the basics of why Topbet sucks. Every bookmaker analysis – including this Topbet review – begins with a first impression. In fact, I’d say this inevitability was more pronounced than usual, with Topbet online throwing their lamest part at newly landed users. This includes an ugly racing section, a confusing and unattractive design, and, what appears on the face of it, to be a very limited betting selection.
But, as all good captain’s knowledge, no planet is hollow. So, we’d best dig a little deeper to find out if Topbet online is as bad as my first impression would suggest.

How do you intend on navigating an unknown and illegal betting planet like Topbet without a proper course of direction? Frankly, that kind of ill-preparedness will simply not do as part of my crew. I won’t accept it in my other online gambling site reviews, and I certainly won’t accept it as part of this Topbet review. So, before we begin our take-off, lets’ first see what Topbet has in store for us.
I’ll be going into more detail on specifics a little later. This is an overview of the kind of betting you can expect as part of this operator. This is important because it’s only fair – according to Space Core Directive 5 – to judge a betting site on what they offer. In other words, it wouldn’t really be fair to give a poker site a poor rating because they didn’t do a great job of covering the Super Bowl, while it would be a fair consideration for a William Hill rating.
The totally lame Topbet Sportsbook
While this operator isn’t quite the jack-of-all-trades of that international juggernaut, it remains a cosmically lame betting buffet, beginning with the Topbet sportsbook. Here, you’ll find a dismal mix of betting markets that should disappoint Earthlings from the stretch of land known as the USA. You can expect major baseball, basketball, NASCAR, American football, and not much more.
Just as important is that there is limited depth to the coverage. There’s a poor selection of sports markets here with weak odds, so you’re not getting quality and variety at this illegal gambling site.
Just like with the Bet365 promo code, it’s always important to check the bookmaker yourself for updates. I’d say though that the focus for Topbet online is largely American sports, but they do provide very limited variety elsewhere, with horse racing from around the world in particular given some half-baked attention.
Another such area I was disappointed to spot from the bridge is the unhealthy selection of eSports. By and large, Topbet does appear to be an operator which stays fairly traditional with the kind of sports they cover, so it’s really surprising to see them rocket towards pastures new with eSports although the coverage is very poor. I think we’re getting to the point where eSports are so mainstream that they should be included practically everywhere, but sadly, some bookmakers are still behind.
The cosmically disappointing Topbet Casino
The other major continent on this gambling stratosphere is the casino. There’s a poor amount of slots to choose from, alongside some sucky table games. In particular, their blackjack selection is really poor, and then there are even some pitiful versions of Keno, jackpot, video slots, scratch and pull, and even arcade and shooting games for you to ignore.
The Topbet casino is clearly an afterthought. The other major downside is there’s no live casino at the time of writing. A poor attempt.
Right crew, we’ve got our blueprint at the ready and we know exactly what’s waiting for us once we land. Now, it’s time to dive deep and see what kind of experience Topbet online is unloading on its poor, unsuspecting customers.
Ultimately, that’s what this is all about. Wherever you are in the universe – whether you’re looking at this Topbet review or a Betstars review – never forget that it’s all about having a good time. So, my focus here is all about that user experience. When it comes down to it, do I think my crew will have a good time on this betting site? Well, there’s only one place we can really begin.
Registration: Don’t bother with Topbet
Of course, your first serious experience with how the site actually operates begins with the registration process. This is how you actually sign up to Topbet online. The bad news is this is kept incredibly complicated. You’ll see the second your ship lands on the homepage that there’s a big yellow ‘Join Now’ button greeting new people – and this is the case whether you’re on a desktop or Topbet mobile.
Click this button and you’ll eventually be taken to a signup page where everything you need to get started is hardly made clear. It’s all confusing, weird and if you’ve ever signed up to pretty much anything online, you should know that it could be better than what’s on offer here. You provide your name, date of birth, email, password, mobile number, and other basic information to sign up.
A couple of important things I logged in to the ship’s computer is that this is where you would include a promo code, so be sure to check out the promotional page for relevant options before clicking through here. The only other slightly unusual addition is the request for your mother’s maiden name, which is a standard security feature in many places across cyberspace, but the first time I’ve seen it done on a betting site. Another sign that you cannot trust Topbet.
Service: Is Topbet legit and available to me? No
The first vital point of service is availability. Ultimately, regardless of how positive Topbet online may be, if it isn’t available to you, then a great Topbet review is about as much use as bringing extra rocks to the moon.
You may be a touch concerned because the URL of this site is Topbet EU. However, it would appear that the Topbet EU URL is just a name and doesn’t reflect its geographical availability. Not surprising given that Topbet is an illegal offshore gambling site. One part of the registration form not mentioned was the list of available countries, which is massive and most certainly includes the United States. However, Topbet has no US licensing and is actually breaking the law.
Onto customer service, I was really unimpressed by customer service failing to pop up to offer me help when I lingered on the registration page for longer than usual. That shows no attention to detail for the customer experience. You can contact them through several email addresses and even a phone number although you won’t get a response. My experiences with the team were very negative – either absent or uncooperative to work out issues with.
Payments: Don’t give Topbet your money
Topbet has many weird and untrustworthy payment methods which is a good sign that this is an illegal gambling site. After all, no serious bank would ever let you make deposits at an illegal operator. That, alongside the feeble license from Curacao, gives you all you need to see that Topbet cannot be trusted.
There isn’t much information on the individual US states – all customers are treated equally badly, so that is left up to the user of the site to understand the specific laws of that jurisdiction. But again, that’s pretty much beyond the control of the operator. Payments also include traditional options such as debit and credit cards, which ensures the broadest variety of players. Just bear in mind that your bank won’t let you use its services for an illegal gambling site.
Plus with nasty fees, weird limits, and slow transaction times, it’s all you need to give Topbet a miss.
Mobile: Dismal wagering on the go
Topbet mobile doesn’t appear as part of a Topbet app, which may disappoint some. I know that mobile apps are especially popular amongst Earthlings and Martians, who have really taken to the technology. That said, to the members of my crew who prefer a pocket rocket rather than a big-screen adventure, then they should be disappointed, as Topbet mobile is barely available through your mobile browser. It might take a couple more clicks than a dedicated Topbet app, and it is almost impossible to see.
Design: A bleak view of Topbet
Most people don’t realize how important design is to the user experience. This is not just about how a site looks but also the telescopic details such as the smoothness of the operation and how well the site is structured. In other words, do you have to be a trained cyberspace pilot or can any citizens enjoy what Topbet has to offer?
It’s absolutely the former, as Topbet online manages a pitiful balance between detail and simplicity, leading to a confusing and bland betting experience.
In my experience, you can often break down an interstellar investigation into the finest betting sites cyberspace has to offer into two key considerations. The first is whether they meet our incredibly high standards of quality, verified by the Space Core to be safe to fly to. That’s why before I decide whether or not a great site like Fanduel is worthy of my esteemed recommendation, for instance, I must first determine is Fanduel legit in terms of safety and quality.
As you can see from the previous points of our field training today – and as I will expand upon further in my personal guide to the sportsbook and casino – Topbet hasn’t done more enough to pass even my sky-high standards. Plus, in order to understand how much the Topbet sportsbook and/or Topbet casino will disappoint you, we have to unearth what makes the site such a nightmare.
Topbet online for the most part sticks to what most people don’t want from a betting site: that’s a poor customer experience, dismal casino games, and pitiful sports coverage with bleak odds. It’s already down there with the worst gambling sites in these regards.
However, what puts Topbet into the nightmare bracket in my opinion is their feeble variety of banking options that all use some fairly strange digital payment technologies, which means that this operator is a truly dishonest one. This is, of course, is what Topbet does to try and dupe US players as no legit banks would ever let you pay money to Topbet. Considering the poor betting selection and the absent banking options, we’d advise avoiding Topbet altogether.
