As well as a decent welcome offer, regular customers can join the 'Guts Squad' and take advantage of big regular promotions.
New sportsbetting customers at Guts.com can earn themselves a sweet £10 bonus upon sign-up. It’s a fairly straightforward play-through bonus where the first bet has to be £10 on odds of 1-2 minimum.
Better still – a losing bet is refunded into players’ accounts as bonus cash. OK, so the bonus money has to be wagered 5x (on odds of 4/5 or above) but it’s a nice ‘double chance’ for gamblers.

Markets and Bets
Guts has tens of thousands of markets on sports as diverse as soccer, tennis, and beach volleyball. At time of writing there were over 40,000 markets on football alone, but annoyingly no horse racing or greyhound racing.
If you want to keep tabs on the latest scores without having to access the betting screens, Guts’ Live Scores page keeps you up to date. Latest scores on a range of sports (not just football) are available to view in real time.
A comprehensive live betting page is one of the big draws at Guts. And as well as a QuickSlip function, there is a dedicated Cash Out tab that shows you every current bet that is eligible for an early settlement. The Cash Outs can be made on live football games via the LiveBet section, but it didn’t seem to be available on games that had yet to run.
If facts and figures are your thing, the detailed Statistics page has results on every sport (yes, even Handball), with a handy list of ‘Most Clicked Matches’ to get you where you want to go.
Promotions and Offers
As well as a decent welcome offer, regular customers can join the ‘Guts Squad’ and take advantage of big regular promotions. A Personal Squad Manager takes VIP calls and chats and sorts out birthday gift bonuses, invites to sporting events, and specifically-tailored offers. You’ll have to place bets at least once every 3 months to even be considered for entry to the club.
Deposit Methods / Banking
Bank withdrawals are processed within 2 hours of being requested – at least, that’s what Guts promises. Payments can be made in the UK via VISA, MasterCard, and Skrill, in a range of currencies like GBP, USD, and EUR. There’s a 2.5% fee attached to all card payments – a massive downside – and no Bank Transfers are permitted.
Although helpful, we only found a Live Chat and email option available at Guts. Live Chat is easy to use – just enter your email address to get going – and the staff were helpful.
Live Chat: Yes
Not guts, no glory goes the saying and there’s plenty of guts here – and a fair amount of glory. The range of betting is excellent at Guts.com, as well as the comprehensive in-play section, but the lack of banking options is a concern. If you’re into your footie and don’t mind paying over the odds for your deposits, Guts might be for you. If you love free betting online, look elsewhere.
