Money-back offers are 138.com's bread and butter.
138.com is an online sportsbook owned and operated by Fesuge Ltd. It boasts licenses in the UK and Isle of Man, but is definitely aimed at a UK/Asian market (hence the Chinese symbols on the homepage). As a result, you’ll find lots of Asian Handicap betting, but the list of regular markets is something to behold. Let’s take a closer look.
New players at 138 can earn a £10 free bet when they open an account. The usual requirement of one qualifying bet (over even-money) is in play. The free bet can then be used for a single or combo bet, and there’s a 7-day time limit.
- Cash Out available for all players.
- Free bets and other promotions for real-cash players.
- Download apps for both iOS and Android.
- 24-hour live chat available.
- No live stream on-site.
- Only English and Chinese languages available.
- More deposit methods would be an advantage.
Markets and Bets
If you’re into football betting, you’ll find it at 138.com. There are literally hundreds of markets spread across countries and divisions. Whether you’re into the English Premier League, Slovakian 3rd Division, or Norwegian lower leagues, you can bet on it. All markets can be displayed in decimal or fractional odds, and you are free to bet on cards, corners, Over/Under, or Scorecast.
Elsewhere, take your pick from horse racing from the UK & Ireland, as well as International meets like South Africa and Germany. The usual minority games like Futsal, Handball, and Pool can also be wagered on.
There’s a decent Live Betting offering at 138.com. Punters can find live One-Day cricket, football, and tennis, and even choose their view (classic or ‘Asian’ with the Asian Handicap included in the in-running odds).
Elsewhere, you can enjoy best odds guaranteed and acca insurance (see below) on selected markets. The quick betting slip is a regular feature of most UK-licensed sportsbooks but is still welcome here.
Promotions and Offers
Money-back offers are 138.com’s bread and butter. You can enjoy best odds guaranteed on all Irish and UK racing, Acca Insurance on losing footie bets (in the form of a free bet), as well as the ubiquitous Stalemate Moneyback on 0-0 footie draws.
Golf punters can also enjoy money-back deals on all US and Euro Tour golf. Again, there’s no ‘money’ back into accounts, but rather a free bet for players.
Deposit Methods / Banking
138.com Sportsbook has a pretty limited range of deposit options, but at least account load-ups are fee-free. Customers can deposit via VISA, MasterCard, or Skrill and NETELLER.
While the deposit options at 138 aren’t anything to write home about, the customer service is. The sportsbook enjoys 24/7 support with pretty swift responses via email or live chat.
If you’re into UK football or racing, you’ll find loads of attractions at 138.com. The range of footie markets is staggering, and while the lack of live streams is annoying the Live ‘in-play’ Betting markets are extensive. Deposit now and see if your coupon comes in.
