JeffBet is a brand new online sports betting site that was launched in April 2022 by gaming platform ProgressPlay. And while we can’t answer the question of where their name came from, in this JeffBet review we will unpack everything that this site has to offer, including their new customer deal, existing customer offers, usability, range of sporting markets, payment methods and much more!
Right off the bat, it’s clear that JeffBet is serious about attracting new customers as they have a “Bet £10, Get £30” signup offer that stacks up very well against the vast majority of their rivals, along with a bonus for new casino players.
However, we do need to say at the outset that if you have previously collected a welcome bonus at one of the other ProgressPlay-powered sportsbooks then you won’t be eligible for one here. Their sister sites include 2kBet, MapleBet, BritainBet, betDukes, Tebwin, KingJ and BetDuel, which in our opinion would be useful information to share in the terms and conditions, but is conspicuous by its absence!
If you do qualify for the JeffBet welcome offer, the first thing you need to do is sign up and deposit a minimum of £10 with the JeffBet promo code BET30. Deposits made through the Skrill e-wallet won’t count towards the bonus, but UK players need not worry about that as it’s not an available deposit method on these shores.
From there you need to place a wager of at least £10 at odds of 1/2 (1.5 in decimal odds), and once that is settled, win or lose, you will be credited with a JeffBet free bet totalling £30! The only conditions attached are that you must place this bet in its entirety within seven days of receiving it. Furthermore, as is customary among all betting sites, if your JeffBet free bet is a winner, you will only receive the profit back and not the original stake.
There’s also a Jeffbet Casino offer available for new customers, the details of which can be found below, along with the various other welcome offers:

When it comes to existing customer deals we could only find one on the JeffBet sports betting site, which is par for the course across all ProgressPlay betting sites. It’s essentially a rewards store where you earn points for completing tasks which can then be redeemed for free bets, free spins and other goodies. Those points will also cause you to “Level Up” every so often which will bring extra rewards.
We’ve broken the offer down below and our thoughts are that it’s a novel idea that adds an extra element to your betting experience with bonuses that are certainly achievable to your average bettor. However, we don’t agree with the inclusion of casino tasks because it means that players who don’t bet on those types of games can’t enjoy the deal to the fullest.
The fact that the JeffBet sign up offer comes in the form of a free bet is good news for punters as when it comes to welcome deals, free bets tend to come with far less wagering restrictions than deposit matches, so you have far more chance of converting your bonus funds into cold, hard and withdrawable cash!
One of our key considerations is site safety and security so it’s great to see that ProgressPlay is licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority internationally and the UK Gambling Commission on these shores. In addition, they also work with the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council and leading cybersecurity firm Sectigo to make transactions and personal data as safe and secure as possible.
Customers need the peace of mind that all of their personal details will not only be safe at the point of inputting them onto the site but also that they are safely stored. JeffBet achieves this by encrypting all of its customer information through multiple servers. In addition, while data is in transit, they also utilize the latest 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to make sure that sensitive information has safe passage to the site servers.
The “Responsible Gaming” section of the site has an impressive selection of information, including tips about how to manage your gambling, how to protect minors from exposure to betting sites, as well as a number of links to all the major professional organisations that you can turn to if betting is becoming more than just an enjoyable pastime.
Bettors can also impose daily, weekly and monthly deposit limits, as well as session time limits. If you want to take a break altogether there’s the option of setting a time out for up to 42 days, or even self-excluding yourself for a longer period of time. There’s also a reality check option, where your session will end after a preset period of time and you will have to specify that you wish to continue.
We were also impressed to see links to internet filtering software such as Net Nanny and GamBlock, that can prevent access to gambling sites altogether.
Unlike other Jeffbet reviews that you may come across, when analysing a betting site we don’t just take a glance, we sign up, visit every part of it and definitely place a bet or two! And that allows us to write comprehensive rundowns just like the one below, focussing on all the things that matter most to punters.
The range of sports available to wager on at JeffBet is hugely impressive, with the most popular events such as football standing side by side with boxing, golf, American football and even the more niche sports such as handball, chess and hurling!
At the time of writing, we found 35 different sports, as well as an impressive selection of E-Sports including the big-hitters in League of Legends, CS:GO, Valorant and DOTA 2, in addition to Warcraft 3, Brawl Stars and Starcraft 2. E-Sports fans will also be pleased to learn that each title is individually featured on the left-hand side of the screen, meaning you don’t have to click through a few times to find it!
There’s also an impressive number of worldwide markets in the fields of entertainment and politics, as well as special bets such as the first company to put a man on Mars, although you may have to wait a while for that bet to be settled!
The only downside is a lack of racing markets outside of the USA, which is certainly a negative when you take into account the popularity of horse racing betting in the UK.
On the sports section of the home page, you can track down your desired sporting event by clicking on the list icon on the left-hand side of the page and then clicking through to the match or tournament you wish to wager on. You can also use the search function to type the event you want to see and the site will bring it up from there.
You can also alter the way the site is laid out by choosing from the “Classic” or “Modern” options. The main difference is that the modern version has a white background with more graphics and a simpler layout, while the classic option has a black background with far more information being presented on screen at any one time.
This is a great feature in our opinion, but it is too easy to miss as the button is not featured prominently, as it is located by the bet slip on the side of the page.
There are pros and cons to both layouts and your own preference will probably be influenced not only by the colour scheme you prefer but how much information you like to see on screen at any one time. We prefer the classic layout, as it makes the process of picking out multiple bets far easier. However, you should certainly try them both!
When it comes to popularity with punters, football reigns supreme and that is reflected in the number of markets available at JeffBet relating to the Beautiful Game! You can generally find over 200 markets to pick from in the big league, cup and tournament matches worldwide, with at least 50 in matches from the smaller league and cup competitions.
We also had a look at other popular team sports such as rugby and American leagues such as the NBA and NFL. We found a host of markets including handicaps, points totals, player prop bets and much more!
It’s fair to say that the vast majority of UK punters prefer fractional odds such as 2/1, with decimal prices such as 3.00 following behind. You can view odds in both of these formats at JeffBet, along with American, Hong Kong, Malay and Indo.
Our experience with new betting sites is that most tend not to worry too much about being the very best when it comes to prices, as they have realised it’s extremely difficult to claim to have the best odds across the board when a sportsbook features thousands of betting markets! So, when we compared JeffBet’s odds with their major rivals on a number of different sports for this review, they were average when it came to prices.
We haven’t judged JeffBet too harshly for this, but the lack of odds boosts and “best odds guaranteed” offers, both of which are prevalent at many other sportsbooks is certainly a negative point.
The minimum wager at JeffBet is £0.20, while the maximum bet varies greatly, depending on the price. The reason that some betting sites do this is that they often need to limit their customers’ potential winnings, in order to avoid a scenario where they are liable for a huge payout which they can’t afford!
We checked out a range of sports and found that the maximum win from any wager varied from bet to bet, but was generally between the £2,000 & £9,000 mark, with the more popular sports providing the best chance to get bigger wins.
We’re confident that the vast majority of punters will not be concerned by these limits, but they may put off higher-spending gamblers. However, what will get their attention is the “Super Bet” button on the bet slip, which allows you to request a wager that would otherwise exceed the maximum limit.
When it comes to live betting it’s clear that JeffBet has continued the trend of ProgressPlay prioritising their in-play service throughout their expanding suite of sportsbooks.
We always found an excellent range of live bets, no matter what time of the day or night we logged in, with most sports featuring at least 10 different in play markets. Being able to follow the action is also crucial when betting live, which is why we enjoyed the “Multi View” feature, where you can pin four live events to the centre of the screen and track them all!
You can also filter events by country, as well as check out a useful calendar to see exactly what’s on the betting horizon.
At the time of writing this review, live streaming is not an option at JeffBet. However, you can still follow games effectively in play, thanks to a graphic showing the latest score, often accompanied by live text which is regularly updated as events unfold. When it comes to football there are also key stats available such as team shots, individual shots on target, bookings, throw ins and corners.
“Cash Out” is the ability to settle bets that are currently winning before a sporting event has actually finished. This is perfect if you want to avoid any late drama that could jeopardise your bet! To cash out, you just need to click on “My Bets” on the right-hand side of the home page and then you will see a clickable green dollar sign next to it, if your bet is eligible.
Pre-game, you can also set your bet to auto cash out if it reaches a certain amount in play, which takes away the pressure of having to follow a match closely.
The JeffBet support team is available 24/7 via live chat. In addition, you can email if your query is less pressing. And don’t forget that there is a Support Centre which is accessible by clicking the speech bubble icon at the top of the desktop screen. This means that you might even be able to find the answer to your question on that page without having to speak to anyone.
If you do need to chat, you can click on the “Chat With Us” button at the bottom of the page, which should connect to a real person within a minute or so. And while we were always happy with the time it took to answer our queries, a small gripe is that we were often told to “check the terms and conditions” rather than the customer service operative answering the query for themselves.
Now it’s time for a rundown of the JeffBet signup and deposit process, along with a summary of how to place that all-important first bet!
There isn’t a dedicated mobile app, so the only way to sign up to JeffBet is by visiting their home page on your computer, smartphone or tablet.
Click the “PLAY NOW” button to open the JeffBet signup form. You will need to enter your email address, telephone number, your desired username and following that, a code will be sent to your phone which will need to be inputted in the next form. Then it’s time to fill in your full name, address, date of birth, occupation, the currency you wish to wager in and your marketing preferences.
You could deposit as part of the signup process if you wanted to, but if not, whenever you’re ready to take advantage of the JeffBet welcome offer you can log in and click on “Cashier” at the top of the screen. Select “Deposit”, followed by the amount and then you can input your bank card details or login to your chosen E-wallet. Don’t forget to deposit at least £10 with the JeffBet promo code Bet30 to take advantage of the JeffBet sign up offer.
Keeping the opening bonus in mind, it is now time to place your first bet, which will need to be at least £10 and placed at odds of 1/2 or more.
In classic mode, when you click on a specific sport on the far left-hand side the related markets will appear underneath. You can then pick the one you want and all the matches related to that market will appear to the right. From there, you just need to click on a match and the available bets will pop up to the right of that.
The great thing about this layout is that all of these sections will stay where they are, which means going back and forth from match to match to create a multiple bet was also a breeze.
When you find the bets you wish to place, you need to click on the price of the outcome you wish to wager on and it will appear on the bet slip on the far right of the screen. The bet slip will remain where it is until you’re ready to place your bet, which you can do by clicking “Place Bets”.
Withdrawals are facilitated through the Cashier page, which is accessible via a link at the top of the home page. Once you’re in, just click on “Withdrawal” and then select which payment method you wish to credit your withdrawal to. Add the amount, which must be a minimum of £10, and click “Withdrawal”.
Ahead of your first withdrawal, you will be required to provide a photo ID such as a passport or driving license. This may seem strange as it is not necessarily a requirement at many of the biggest sportsbooks in the UK, but it is standard practice for a lot of other reputable online sites such as this one and is nothing to worry about.
However, withdrawals are subject to a £2.50 processing fee which is not good news as far as we’re concerned. The main reason for this is that the amount is set and not a percentage, so the people withdrawing £20 are being charged the same as those withdrawing thousands of pounds.
This could lead to bettors being reluctant to withdraw small amounts, which could cause them to place wagers that they may not have actually wanted to.
There is no JeffBet app and when we asked customer support whether there were any plans to create one, they were unable to tell us. However, looking at the Jeffbet mobile site your smartphone or tablet replicates the betting app experience very well.
Our only small complaint about the JeffBet mobile site is that the ticker showing advertisements at the top of the screen is pretty big and constantly having to scroll beyond it to get to the main home page becomes even more of an irritant on the smaller mobile screen.
If you want to qualify for the “Bet £10, Get £30” Jeffbet sign up offer, you need to enter the JeffBet promo code BET30 when depositing. In addition, some of their other introductory deals also require codes so it’s always worth checking the JeffBet promotions page for more information.
Many other sportsbooks also require promo codes to unlock some or all of their new and existing customer deals, with the following being a selection of codes that can currently be found at some of the best UK betting sites.
Betting Promo Code & Free Bet Codes
The table below provides an at-a-glance rundown of the major payment methods currently available at JeffBet. There are a lot of options but the lack of Apple Pay or Google Pay is a tiny negative as those payment methods are becoming increasingly popular.
|Banking Method||Fees||Min Deposit||Min Withdraw||Withdraw times|
|Debit Card||n/a||£10||£10||2-4 days|
After a thorough look at the JeffBet sports betting site, it’s time to summarise what our favourite elements of the site are, as well as what isn’t quite working for us.
For punters who have yet to experience one of ProgressPlay’s betting sites, JeffBet is well worth a visit, thanks to their generous welcome bonus, an excellent range of sports and markets, their unique in-play offering and a user-friendly desktop site layout.
However, there are some sizeable “Buts”, the most notable of which is the fact that if you have frequented a ProgressPlay betting site before and taken advantage of their welcome offer then there is really nothing new to see here in terms of layout and site features. And this point is only accentuated by the fact that you won’t be eligible for the welcome deal if you have taken advantage at one of their sister sites already.
We also worry about their ability to retain customers after signup, with no app, a withdrawal charge, a lack of special features and no racing markets outside of the USA. However, we would certainly advise checking them out as there’s more than enough good stuff on show to warrant their place among the growing number of British betting sites.
