The British betting boom shows no sign of slowing down and 2021 was another bumper year for new sportsbooks. One such bookmaker is BetMVP, but the question is are they a worthy addition to the sports betting landscape? In this BetMVP UK review we will take our usual close look at all aspects of the site, including the BetMVP welcome offer, existing customer deals, site usability and the range of sports and markets.
100% Deposit Bonus Up To £50
100% Deposit Bonus Up To £50
BetMVP is owned by Vivaro Limited, who are licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority, with an additional Gambling Commission license to operate in the UK. Their flagship site Vbet will be familiar to many punters and just like their sister sportsbook, BetMVP offers a combination of sports betting, slots and casino games.
They also have an extensive area of the site dedicated to responsible gambling, and pleasingly the link to access the safer gambling area of the site is right at the top of the page rather than hidden away at the bottom. And that’s certainly a good sign that encouraging players to gamble responsibly is high on the BetMVP agenda.
The BetMVP welcome offer is one of the best we’ve seen as new customers can look forward to receiving a 100% deposit bonus of up to £50. You just need to register, deposit with the BetMVP promo code MVPSPORT and place a qualifying bet of between £10 and £50 and your stake will be matched in its entirety as a free bet. However, only deposits made using a debit card or Trustly count as a qualifying deposit for this promotion.
The qualifying wager must be your very first bet at BetMVP and it needs to be placed at minimum odds of 1.4, which is 2/5 in fractional odds. And any bets that use Cash Out, full or partial, will not count as a qualifying bet. There is no wagering requirement or minimum odds attached to the wager you place with your bonus funds but the maximum payout from the BetMVP free bet is limited to £500 per player. And don’t forget that the standard rules surrounding free bets apply, which is that just your profit and not the original free bet stake will be returned as part of any winnings.
We couldn’t find a casino bonus at the time of writing but that’s not to say that one won’t appear in the near future.

There’s not much to report when it comes to ongoing promotions, but at least football fans will be pleased with the two that are available! The main details are below but don’t forget to check the T’s & C’s for this and every other BetMVP offer.
The only existing customer deal on the site that offers a BetMVP free bet is the acca insurance offer, but we’re hopeful that as the site finds its feet, more will be added in due course.
Any site that collects the personal and financial details of their customers needs to make sure that they are not only protecting that data but using it in the right way.
All personal details are fully encrypted with multiple servers used to ensure the protection of sensitive information. And while data is in transit, BetMVP also utilises the latest 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to ensure that sensitive data is transferred securely over the internet to their protected servers.
Safer gambling also means responsible gambling, and we’re happy to report that BetMVP has an extensive safe gambling section, easily accessible through a link at the top of the home page.
Once there you can find tips about how to manage your betting, links to third party filter software that can help ensure children aren’t exposed to gambling sites, as well as a number of links to all the major professional organisations that you can turn to if betting is becoming an issue.
Bettors can impose daily, weekly and monthly deposit limits, as well as session time limits, time outs and self exclusions. There’s also a reality check option, where a message will appear after a preset period of time informing you of the amount of time you have been playing for. You will then have the option to continue playing or to stop.
Now it’s time to outline all of the major site features in the next part of our BetMVP review, with a particular focus on the range of sporting markets on offer, how to place a pre-match and in play bet and of course the accessibility, functionality and usability of the site.
At the time of writing we found 25 sports to wager on, including football, rugby, golf and tennis, USA big-hitters basketball, American football, ice hockey and NASCAR, along with less well-known sports such as hurling, lacrosse and bandy. However, notable omissions are horse racing and greyhound racing, which may well be an issue with many UK punters.
We all know that no sport can match football when it comes to punter popularity and we were really impressed with the number of matches available, which was over 1,000! And within each game we found at least 50 markets to pick from, with over 250 on offer for the more high-profile matches.
When it came to Esports, only Counter-Strike: GO, Dota 2, Call of Duty and League of Legends were available at the time of writing, and while these are certainly some of the most popular games worldwide, many of BetMVP’s rivals offer many more Esports markets.
BetMVP’s layout is a familiar one as many sites these days use the same hosting platforms which all look the same to a certain degree but also allow a site to make the pages their own. The colour scheme is a nice one though, with predominantly gold writing on a black background.
On the sports markets section of the home page, you will be able to find the event you wish to wager on by clicking on the list icon on the left-hand side and then clicking through to the match you are interested in. Or if you know the specific team or individual you wish to bet on you can just type that into the search box, which is always a useful addition!
You can also change the way the site is laid out by clicking “Classic” or “Modern” above the bet slip, with the difference between the two being that the modern layout has a white background with more graphics and less information on screen at any time, while the classic has a more basic black background with more going on!
This is a great feature but our only issue is that it is very easy to miss with the button being hidden away above the bet slip. We reckon an option as strong as this should certainly be featured more prominently on the home page.
There are certainly pros and cons to both layouts with our preference being for the classic one, for reasons we outline in the “Place Bets” section of this BetMVP UK review, but it’s great to have the option of both and we would definitely encourage you to try them and see which is your favourite.
Very few sportsbooks can claim to offer, on average, substantially better odds across the board and when it comes to punter priorities, in our experience most do not select a sportsbook based on the quality of their prices. However, the rise of price comparison websites has meant that bettors can see how the prices at their chosen sportsbook stack up against many of their rivals, so it is important that a site’s odds be relatively competitive.
And when we did a spot check of ten markets across a range of sports, including a couple of Premier League games, US Masters golf and a high-profile rugby union encounter, we found the BetMVP odds to be pretty competitive. So if odds are a priority for you then we would certainly recommend BetMVP on that basis.
In addition, when it comes to the odds themselves you can choose whether they are presented in decimal, fractional, American, Hong Kong, Malay and Indo formats, so all bases are certainly covered!
The minimum wager at BetMVP is £0.10, while the maximum bet varies depending on the price. After looking at a range of sports we discovered that the maximum win from any bet varied from wager to wager but was generally between the £2,000 & £7,000 mark, with the more well-known sports such as football tending to provide the best opportunities for bigger payouts.
Live betting is growing enormously in popularity as punters are wising up to the advantages of wagering when an event has started, given that so much more information is available to inform your betting choices.
BetMVP seems to be part of the new breed of in play offerings that not only provide a large number of sports and markets to wager on but extra features that we haven’t seen on many other sportsbooks. And that includes the option to create your own live “Multi View” in the centre of the screen with up to four live events, an option to filter events by country, as well as a handy calendar to see exactly what is coming up in the hours and days ahead.
And when it came to the sporting markets themselves, we found a good selection to bet on at all times of the day and night, with around 10 sports and 75 markets at quieter times, rising to around 15 and over 100 markets at peak hours.
At the time of writing this BetMVP UK review, we found that live streaming is not an option. However, every sport that you can bet on in play had a graphic showing the latest score, and when it came to football there was a live animation showing events as they happened, along with key stats such as shots on target, bookings, corner kicks and even dangerous attacks.
We firmly believe that what attracts customers to a new sportsbook is their welcome offer but what keeps them playing is the site features and perks that make you feel like you are being looked after. And BetMVP has a couple of nice features which are cash out and acca insurance.
Cash out is available on many of the markets at BetMVP, allowing punters to settle all or part of their wagers early. You just need to click on “My Bets” on the right-hand side of the home page and then if your bet is eligible you will see a green dollar sign next to it which is clickable.
Acca insurance means that if you place a football accumulator bet between £2 and £50 with six or more selections at odds of at least 3/5 (1.6 in decimal odds) and just one is a loser, your whole stake will be refunded as a free bet up to £25.
Even if you are an experienced punter, betting can be a complicated business with so many sports, markets and special offers to decipher, alongside a huge range of deposit and withdrawal options. So having any queries answered in a timely and accurate fashion is key.
BetMVP customers can contact the site 24/7 through a chat button at the bottom of the screen, or they can email if a question is less time-sensitive. When we tried to chat on five separate occasions we were always put through within 30 seconds and our questions were answered rapidly and to our satisfaction by real agents and not chatbots. So overall it’s a thumbs-up for BetMVP’s customer service!
With no mobile app available the only way to sign up to BetMVP is by visiting their home page on your computer, mobile phone or tablet.
Click the “PLAY NOW” button to open the first of three BetMVP signup forms where you will be required to enter your email address, telephone number and your desired username. After that, check your phone as a code will be sent that you need to input on the next form, and then it’s time to fill in your full name, date of birth, address, occupation, the currency you wish to bet in and your marketing preferences.
Once you’re signed up you need to click on your account balance at the top of the screen before selecting the “Deposit” option. You will then be presented with a variety of options, with “SafeCharge” being the one you need to select for a standard debit card deposit. And don’t forget to input the Bet MVP promo code MVPSPORT to qualify for your BetMVP welcome offer.
Once you click on a particular sport on the far left-hand side of the home page, the specific markets will appear underneath. Then you can just select the one you want and all the related matches will appear to the right, and then you just need to click on a match and the available markets will emerge to the right of that.
The real beauty of this layout is that all of these sections will remain in place, which makes going back and forth from match to match a real piece of cake. And placing a multiple bet was a real pleasure too as we could just click from match to match and market to market on the same page, rather than going back and forth.
Then you just need to click on the price of the outcome you wish to bet on and it will appear on the bet slip on the far right of the screen, which will stay permanently so you don’t have to keep clicking back on it. You can then add your stake and click “Place Bets”.
If you want to withdraw your winnings just click on your balance at the top of the home page, click on “Withdraw” and then pick which payment method you wish to credit your withdrawal to, add the amount and click “Withdrawal”. The minimum withdrawal amount is £10 and the maximum is £1,500.
Withdrawal processing times are 12 hours across the board, which compares exceptionally well to other sportsbooks, and sure enough, our own withdrawal was completed within that timeframe.
Unfortunately, there is no BetMVP app, and when we asked customer support whether there were any plans to create one, they were unable to tell us. However, looking at their sportsbook on your mobile device reflects the experience of a BetMVP app very well as it works effectively in portrait mode. And the black and gold colour scheme translates very well to a mobile device.
If you want to qualify for the BetMVP welcome bonus you just need to enter the BetMVP promo code MVPSPORT when depositing. Many other sportsbook offers also require promo codes, with the following being a selection of deals that can be found currently at some of the leading UK betting sites.
Betting Promo Code & Free Bet Codes
There are a huge range of online slots, casino table games, live bespoke games, online scratchcards and lotteries on offer at the BetMVP casino. When it comes to slots, some of the biggest games developers such as Netent and Microgaming are present and correct, and we’re not exaggerating when we say you could play a different slots game every day for two years and still not get through them all!
Fans of traditional table games are also well-catered for at the BETMVP casino, with numerous different versions of popular games such as Roulette, Blackjack, Poker and Baccarat. All table games are also available with live dealers and there is also a section devoted to bespoke live games called “BetGamesTV”, featuring Wheel of Fortune, War of Bets and Dice Duel, all featuring a presenter calling the shots live.
The table below provides a clear breakdown of the major payment methods currently available at BetMVP. There are a lot of options but the lack of Paypal is a negative as it is becoming an increasingly popular payment method.
|Banking Method||Fees||Min Deposit||Min Withdraw||Withdraw times|
|Debit Card (via SafeCharge)||n/a||£5||£10||12 hours|
Our in-depth look at BetMVP has enabled us to create a comprehensive list of what we like and what we don’t like, so you can make as informed a decision as possible.
After a thorough look at BetMVP we’re pleased to report that on the whole, they are well worth your time and money. BetMVP offers a generous welcome deal and once you’ve signed up we’re sure you will be happy with the colour scheme and layout of the site, as well as the ease of navigation.
Football betting enthusiasts in particular will also be delighted with the huge range of matches and markets on offer, BetMVP’s strong in play offering and the existing customer perks of acca insurance and cash out. They are the only deals we could find though which is a shame, and that, along with a lack of horse racing are the main negative points. However, the good far outweighs the bad so we would highly recommend checking the site out and wish you the best of luck!
