If all entries are being filled in, the registration is almost complete. The new customers will receive a first e-mail with a verification link from the bookmaker.

At first sight the design of the website is very different from some competitors. At the header of the website the customers can find all offered sports. With fitting and detailed illustrations as tournaments, contests, lying or countries the submenus can be opened. After each single step, the website seems to be a little cumbersome for users, but this is clearly an advantage for an improved clarity.
Also the selection of sporting events is really convincing. Sporting events are clearly displayed in the center on the screen. The betting slip is optimized very user friendly and can be filled in easily.
In this segment, the betting line is clearly dominated from the King soccer. Here, however, the focus is not only on the most popular leagues such as the German Bundesliga and Spanish Primera pision, but there are also many sporting events from other countries and continents available to place a bet on. The German soccer fans can even place their bets in the Amateur League. Wettmeister also offers the U 19 Juniors Bundesliga as a bet option.
In addition to soccer, there are 14 more different sports. These include basketball, ice hockey or tennis. Overall, the bookmaker offers around 10,000 different bet options on a daily base. In addition to that, there are numerous extra charges and special bets available. Because of that the bookmaker Wettmeister is as good as the competition, that is the result of our sports betting test.
The bookmaker has some pent-up demand in terms of its payout key. On average, there are only 92 percent granted. That means that the provider cannot keep up in comparison with other operators. In popular soccer games or other contests, the odds are nearly at the same level compared to other sports betting operators, but in less important matches the odds might fall rapidly.
The bookmaker Wettmeister does present a live betting offer, but this is limited to soccer, hockey and tennis. All other sports are not being offered in this area currently. In this section, the bookmaker cannot compete with other providers. Also from the technical perspective, there is still need for improvement. Indeed, the inpidual games are represented on the regular website, but only in a small window. A game enjoyment looks a little bit different.
Additional offers such as a casino or a poker area do not exist here. Wettmeister fully focuses on the different sports bettings and mainly on the round leather. Even with the betting tax Wettmeister makes no concessions to its customers. The tax of five percent, which is since July 2012 payable for sports betting providers to the German tax office, will not be paid by the bookmaker. Here the customers have no luck. Some competitors take over the taxes for their sports betting fans, sometimes even the whole amount.
Currently there is no mobile offer available for the sports betting fans of this bookmaker. The focus is currently on the development of the website and a user-friendly design. In the sports betting comparison, Wettmeister couldn`t get any credits for this section, because other providers offer various mobile solutions for their customers.
As payment options there are the credit card, direct debit or bank transfer available. Currently the bookmaker Wettmeister has no eWallet providers such as Neteller, Skrill or Ukash in its portfolio. Also the payment option PayPal is not offered by Wettmeister. The minimum deposit amount is five euros. For pay-out requests, the bookmaker does only offer bank transfer or visa card. There are no charges neither for a deposit nor for a disbursement.
Especially in these points the bookmaker has clearly pent-up demand. The sports betting comparison showed, that in this area the competitors of the sports betting industry offer significantly more payment options to their customers.
There is a customer service available via a free telephone hotline. The contact via e-mail is possible. The service hours are from 10:00 am to 08:00 pm. In our sports betting test, the whole service team made a competent and very motivated impression. Also outside the service hours the customer service can be contacted. Outside the service hours, the customers can reach the support team via e-mail. A live chat is not yet available at this bookmaker.
For new customers a bonus is offered. This amounts to 100 percent to a total amount of up to 100 euros. The minimum deposit amounts are just five euros. To cash out the amount, customers have to roll this amount over three times at a minimum odd of 2.00 with the sports betting. In the sports betting comparison, the bookmaker could not convince in terms of the height of its bonus payments. Often the competition offers more beneficial bonuses for new customers.
Wettmeister is sometimes still quite unknown in the market of sports betting. However, this is difficult to understand because the bookmaker has been active for many years. The betting line is extensive, but the focus sometimes lays on the horse betting offer. But sports betting fans can also place their bets on soccer and many other different sports. The odds for the inpidual games are solid but there is definitely still room for a little improvement. In contrast to that, Wettmeister has a real convincing customer service. This can be reached through various communication channels and the service times are also very customer friendly. Anyone who is looking for a mobile solution will not find it at this bookmaker. Currently this bookmaker does not offer an app or a mobile version of its website.
