Going strong for more than a decade, ComeOn is one of the greatest cricket betting sites you may have not heard of. Not yet at least. With an HQ set up in Malta, ComeOn have done well in the regulated markets and have now set their sights firmly on conquering the Indian market.
As soon as you land on the site, you will instantly be blown away by the modern look of the bookmaker. It is simply yet nicely laid out with a predominantly black colour scheme broken up by shades of green and hot pink. This might all seem a bit too crowded for a person new to the world of sports betting but with time the intuitive interface will become easy to navigate.
Welcome Offers at ComeOn
You are faced with two different welcome offers depending on which gambling product you to decide to choose. If you feel like having a go at online slots, then ComeOn will give you a 100% match deposit offer up to ?10,000. You will be required to wager your deposit and bonus a total of 35 times before you can withdraw any winnings.
Choose to go down the sportsbook route instead and you are given a 100% match deposit offer up to ?2,500. If you do decide to take up the offer, you will be required to wager your funds (deposit and bonus) 6 times on combo bets with odds of 2.0 or higher.
Taking cues from modern video games that reward you for your loyalty, ComeOn also deploys a points system. The system awards you based on a range of activities including daily logins, deposits, verifying your email and mobile. These points can be exchanged at the ComeOn ‘Bazaar’ for free spins and other bonuses.
We will point out a shortcoming with the offers and promos section. At present there is simply not enough content for this to be a separate tab on the site. Hopefully with the passage of time this section will be inundated with the latest casino and sports betting offers giving you more incentive to visit the site.
Loyalty and VIP programs at ComeOn
At present the loyalty and VIP programs are not the best at ComeOn. While there is a scoreboard that adds up the points it is not visible on the homepage. If ComeOn are to succeed in India they need to display the scoreboard and the subsequent winners proudly. This will in turn generate good publicity for the brand leading to more traffic.
Cricket Betting at ComeOn
Any bookmaker looking to dip their feet into the Indian market must offer a fantastic cricket betting product. It goes without saying that cricket is the most important sport in India and will trump all others in terms of the volume of bets being placed. The good news is that ComeOn have a product that is not only functional but offers a great variety of events and odds to bet on.
The cricket betting section can be accessed by a separate tab once you enter the sportsbook. It is listed under the ‘Most Popular’ menu category and clicking on it opens up all the upcoming matches that you can place bets on.
At the time of writing this review, there were quite a few events that were available to bet on which include the Pakistan Super League (PSL), India series against South Africa, Indian Premier League (IPL) and Ranji Trophy to name but a few.
Indian Premier League Betting
IPL has morphed into a juggernaut event and ComeOn rightfully so allows to place bets on the event before it has even officially started. As soon as the IPL auction has taken place, you can place ‘outright’ bets on the team you think will win the tournament. Once the tournament begins, you will be given a wide variety of betting options for every match. These include ‘Top bowler’, ‘top batsman’ and much more!
IPL Live betting
If you find IPL exciting, then you need to have a crack at IPL live betting. Betting on a live match is exhilarating and ComeOn provides you with a fantastic betting platform to do so. The bookmaker provides you with an interactive view of the match chock full of statistics and analysis. This allows you to make an informed decision when placing your bets and best of all, it makes you feel as if you are actually taking part in the match.
Apart from covering the basics, ComeOn also provides you with the opportunity to bet on other sports including hockey, tennis, handball, rugby and kabaddi. While there may only be a few kabaddi leagues and matches to bet including Indian Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) as well as the Asian Games and the Kabaddi World Cup, it is good to know that the bookmaker caters to fans of other sports as well.
Casino Game Selection at ComeOn
ComeOn started its journey in the gambling world by offering a casino product only. What started as a decent collection of a few hundred games has ballooned to over 1000 plus. All the biggest software providers are covered here including Microgaming, Netent and Play’n Go. You have the option of playing the latest online slots as well as multiple variations of blackjack, roulette and poker.
Live Casino which has gained immense popularity in India is also covered by the ComeOn. The live games are powered by Evolution Gaming which is the gold standard when it comes to live casino games. Evolution Gaming provide a product that allows you to interact with the dealer and other players replicating the experience of a land based casino.
Banking Options at ComeOn
All the standard banking options are covered by ComeOn. If you are keen on seeing what is available then you need to head out to the ‘support’ window which will list the methods such as debit and credit cards, e-wallets and bank transfers. The complete list of payment methods includes Netbanking/online banking, Visa Card, MasterCard, Paysafe Card, Skrill, Neteller & MuchBetter. One thing to note is that while the withdrawals are free of charge within a 30-day period, a fee of INR 500 is added for every withdrawal that takes place beyond that.
Mobile and Betting App
ComeOn have a fully functional and optimised mobile site. The interface is pleasing to the eyes and easy to navigate through. While there are no IOS apps that you can download, you can download the Android APK. Upon downloading you will be presented with a warning but have no fear as the app is perfectly safe to download and use.
Customer Support at ComeOn
ComeOn offers comprehensive customer support for players all over the world. Most European countries are offered 24/7 support. Players from India can only contact via email which are usually answered within two working days. Furthermore, the customer support team is active in various forums which is always a good sign for prospective players looking to sign up to a new betting site.
While most bookmakers try to impress punters with flashy graphics and hard to understand betting terminology, ComeOn decides to go the other route. The site structure is simple yet effective and the language is easy to understand. Navigating to your favourite cricket matches can be done in a few clicks and once there, you are presented with great selection of games and cricket odds.
Another aspect we would like to highlight is the safety and security of the site. The site uses the latest in SSL encryption technology and also complies with Payment Card Industry data security standards.
Scroll to the bottom of the homepage and you will notice that the company also possess the UKGC and MGA license meaning that it follows stringent rules set by the external compliance authorities. All in all, this is a good cricket betting site that will surely become even better with time.
