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, Bet Storm, 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! And the only conditions attached are that you must place this bet in its entirety within seven days of receiving it. And 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!
As part of our JeffBet review we have taken a good look at site safety and security and we’re pleased to report that not only is ProgressPlay licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission, but they also work with the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council and leading cybersecurity firm Sectigo to make transactions and personal data as secure as possible.
All personal details are fully encrypted with multiple servers used to ensure the protection of sensitive information. And while data is in transit, they also utilize 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.
The “Play Responsibly” section of the site has an impressive selection of information, including tips about how to manage your gambling, protection of minors, 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, time outs and self exclusions. There’s also a reality check option, where a message will appear after a preset period of time reminding you of how long you have been playing for. You will then have the option to continue playing or to stop.
We were also impressed to see links included to internet filtering software that can prevent access to gambling sites altogether, which are becoming more and more prevalent at modern betting sites.
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 here is hugely impressive with the most popular betting events such as football standing side by side with 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 range of E-Sports including League of Legends, Counter-Strike, Warcraft 3, Brawl Stars, Starcraft 2, Valorant and DOTA 2. And more good news for E-Sports afficionados is that each game is individually featured on the left-hand side of the screen, rather than having to click on an E-Sports icon and find your chosen event from there.
There’s also a good number of worldwide political and entertainment markets and also 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 down side 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 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 pros and cons to both layouts with our preference being for the classic one, for reasons we will outline in the “Place Bets” section of this review, but it’s great to have multiple options and we would definitely encourage you to try them both and see which is your favourite.
Football is the undisputed king when it comes to punter popularity and when we checked there were always over 200 markets to pick from in the big league, cup and tournament matches at home and abroad, and at least 50 in the smaller events.
We also had a look at some other popular sports such as golf, tennis and American football. And we were impressed when we saw over 30 markets available for the big golf tournaments, over 100 for any NFL game and more than 30 on your average tennis match.
Odds can be viewed in fractional, decimal and American formats, along with the less well-known pricing styles of Hong Kong, Malay and Indo.
Our experience with new betting sites is that the vast majority tend not to worry too much about being the best when it comes to odds, 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 odds with their major rivals on a number of different sports for our review, we found them to be average when it comes to prices.
We don’t necessarily consider that a negative, as we believe that a bettor’s decision about whether they join a sportsbook is influenced far less by the odds than other factors such as welcome offers, range of markets and site layout. However, we do think that the absence of odds boosts and “best odds guaranteed” offers, both of which are widely found at most other sportsbooks is a negative.
The minimum wager at JeffBet is £0.20, 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 & £9,000 mark, with the more well-known sports such as football tending to provide the best opportunities for bigger payouts.
And while we can certainly understand a new site limiting your winnings it means that the small percentage of bigger-stakes bettors among you, or those looking for a mega acca win might need to look elsewhere! However, the large stakes gamblers will certainly be interested in the “Super Bet” button on the bet slip, which allows you to request an ad hoc bet that would exceed the maximum limit.
Given how popular in-play betting has become, it has been a key element of our research for this review. And when it comes to live wagering it’s clear that JeffBet has continued the trend of ProgressPlay prioritising their in-play service throughout their expanding suite of sportsbooks.
We found a good selection of sports to bet on at all times of the day and night, with over 100 markets on average across at least 10 sports. There are also a number of welcome extra features that we haven’t seen on many other sportsbooks, including the option to create your own live “Multi View” in the centre of the screen with up to four live events.
And there’s even 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.
At the time of writing this review, live streaming is not an option, but we found that 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.
Cash out is available on most of the markets, which will please punters who love the option of settling 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.
You can also set your bet to auto cashout if it reaches a certain amount in play, which is a welcome addition that is normally only on spread betting sites.
The support team are available via live chat 24 hours a day, seven days a week and you can also email them if your query is less urgent. Your first step should always be to click the speech bubble icon at the top of the desktop screen to bring up the Support Centre, as you might be able to find the answer to your question on that page without having to go any further.
If not 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.
Those wishing to sign up will be pleased to hear that the process is very simple. In fact, a new account can be registered in a matter of minutes:
With no mobile app available the only way to sign up to JeffBet is by visiting their home page on your computer or mobile device.
Click the “PLAY NOW” button to open the first of three JeffBet signup forms where you will be required to enter your email address, telephone number and your desired username. After that, check your email or phone as a code will have been 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.
The JeffBet signup process does not involve providing any additional verification such as a driving license or passport, which wasn’t a surprise as not all sportsbooks request it, and it certainly reduced the amount of time from signing up to placing our first bet.
You have the option to deposit as part of the signup process but if you choose not to, when you’re ready to fund your account and take advantage of the JeffBet welcome offer for the first time you just need to log in and click on “Cashier” at the top of the screen. Select the “Deposit” option, before entering the amount you wish to add and then you can input your bank card details or login to your chosen e-wallet. And don’t forget you need 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.
Looking at the classic version of the home page you’d be forgiven for thinking there’s a lot going on and it will be difficult to navigate. But fear not because we discovered quite quickly that placing a single bet is actually quite straightforward while selecting multiple bets is also a real breeze.
Once you click on a particular sport on the far left-hand side the specific markets will appear underneath, and then you can just select the one you want and all the matches related to that market 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 “Cashier” at the top of the home page, click on “Withdrawal” and then pick 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 photo ID such as a passport or driving license, but that is standard practice for a lot of sportsbooks and is nothing to worry about.
However, withdrawals are subject to a £2.50 processing fee which is a massive negative in our book, mainly because very few betting sites charge their customers to withdraw their winnings, but also due to the fact that the amount is set and not a percentage, so the people withdrawing £20 are being charged the same as those withdrawing £10,000!
For example, if you withdrew £20 you would lose 12.5% of it, but if you withdrew £200 it’s only 1.25%, which seems to penalise smaller stakes bettors more than the larger stakes ones. And it may also discourage bettors from withdrawing small amounts, meaning they will place more 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 their sportsbook on your mobile device represents the experience of an app very well as it works effectively in portrait mode.
Our only small gripe is that the ever-present 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 annoyance on the smaller mobile screen.
If you want to qualify for the “Bet £10, Get £30” Jeffbet sign up offer, you just need to enter the JeffBet promo code BET30 when depositing. In addition, some of their sports-specific welcome bonuses also require a code so it’s always worth checking their promotions page for more details.
UK's best promo codes
The table below provides a clear breakdown 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 site it’s time to summarise what our favourite elements of the JeffBet sports betting site are, as well 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.
