Expekt was founded in Sweden in 1999 and has been one of the most important bookmakers in Scandinavia ever since. The betting provider Expekt has a fixed customer base of over 1.8 million registered users. This figure alone is an irrefutable proof of quality, which virtually excludes fraud or rip-off. Nevertheless, it is a fact that the Scandinavians have not yet fully established themselves in this country. In the detailed experience report we went on trace search. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the Swedish online bookmaker?
Our experiences at a glance – is Expekt fraud?
Fraud can be excluded at Expekt – this is the most important fact. Northern Europeans have been working seriously on the market for years. Payout difficulties or similar negative player experiences have never happened before. For many years the Swedes sailed under the flag of Gibraltar. In 2014 the change took place under the care of the Malta Gaming Authority. Expekt has several licences from the Mediterranean Gaming Authority which cover the whole range of games of chance.

The offers of Expekt
The legal environment of the online provider is of course only one side of the coin. For the users in the “daily business” the bet offer is clearly more interesting. The most important facts to the offers we have worked out following.
The betting program includes between 25 and 30 sports depending on the season, with which Expekt achieves a very, very good value. On a daily average, the bookmaker has well over 20,000 individual bets. Outstanding is the king football. The specialization on the domestic, Scandinavian leagues is unmistakable with the round leather, whereby naturally also all other important competitions are not ignored. The betting portfolio for Tennis and ice hockey is also very extensive, with a certain Swedish touch. The supporting disciplines include cricket, golf and beach volleyball. In the special bets section, bets can be placed on the upcoming James Bond or other TV highlights. In the betting option depth, the bookie is medium splendidly positioned. In the top football leagues, the betting provider comes up with about 50 special bets per match.
The odds level is good, but not outstanding. The bookmaker works with a relatively fixed odds key of 93 percent. Expekt very rarely has the absolute best offer on the screen, but never the worst offer. Only with the draw ratios the bookmaker limps now and then somewhat behind.
For the German sport weather the Tipps with Expekt are nevertheless very lucrative. The betting tax is carried by the northern Europeans alone – and this without ifs and buts. The customer comes neither with won nor with lost tickets with the tax on sport bets into contact.
pIn the Online Casino the user has the choice from over 300 Games of all categories. The online provider relies primarily on games from Net Entertainment and Microgaming. The co-operation is a clear proof for the fact that the customers do not have to count also in the virtual play hall on fraud or Abzocke. On the contrary, there are profits in the millions. Expekt currently has around 20 progressive network jackpots in its portfolio. The play offer reaches from Slots over the video Poker automats up to the table and card plays.
Extremely extensive is the live Casino equipped, in which Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Three Card Poker and Casino Holdem can be played. Also with the live Dealern Expekt does not deny the own origin. For example, a roulette table is run by Swedish croupiers.
The Pokerarena of Expekt is directly connected to the Everest Poker gaming area. For users, this means not only an extensive selection of tables and games, but also round-the-clock opponents of all levels. With the offerer both the Freizeitzocker and the professional actors become fndig. To emphasize are the numerous Satellite tournaments, over which the user can qualify for the largest off-line Events world-wide.
Bonus for new customers – cash money dust
In all three main sections the Swedes hold ready a welcome bonus for the new customers. The risk-free start at Expekt is given for all users. The details about the bonuses can be found in the following section.
Sportwetten Bonus – 100 Euro Deposit Bonus
Expekt’s Welcome Bonus has been improved from 77 € to 100 € in the last months. This is a classic deposit bonus, i.e. the first deposit is doubled up to a contribution of 100€.
At least ten Euros must be deposited to activate the bonus. In addition, the deposit amount must be wagered before the bonus credit to a minimum quota of 1.5. However, only the 1X2 betting markets apply. However, a minimum odds is not mandatory. Please also note that the first deposit must be made by bank transfer, a direct booking system or a credit card. All new customers in Germany and German-speaking Switzerland are eligible for the bonus.
Casino Bonus – 200 Euro for the first deposit
The Casino Bonus of the Swedes you will receive as follows: Simply deposit and the first deposit will be rewarded with a 100% deposit bonus of up to 200 €. The bonus must be played through 40 times to be ready for withdrawal. The different value of the games must be taken into account when free spins are played. While the slots are credited at 100 percent, Blackjack, for example, achieves “only” a factor of five percent. Roulette is rated with a very good 25 percent. The live versions of the two classics have a credit value of two percent. All other table and card games are completely excluded from the bonus conditions.
Poker Bonus – 200% up to 2.000 Dollar
In the poker area the bonus is calculated in Dollar. A 200% match bonus of up to $2,000 is available as a new customer bonus. However, the additional credit is not available for use, but must be unlocked with your own money “Step by Step”. Bonus conversion into real money takes place in three steps. But this is far from the end of the line in the poker arena. Additionally each new customer receives immediately 20 points credited, which can be converted later into cash. Furthermore, there are tokens worth $11, which can be used at all real money tables. The winnings are not subject to any play-through conditions. The beginners should also not neglect the two tokens which are the starting authorization for the Freeroll beginners tournament.
Deposit and withdrawal – this is how it works
The transfer portfolio consists of numerous secure and fast payment methods. However, customers who choose Visa or MasterCard credit cards must note that Expekt charges a 2.5% deposit fee in this case. All other payment methods are free of charge. Bank transfers in Germany can be made in real time using Sofortüberweisung.de and GiroPay. For smaller deposits the Paysafecard and Ukash are suitable. Furthermore, the e-wallets of Skrill by Moneybookers and Neteller are available for selection.
Payouts are made via all transfer channels that have already been used for a deposit, provided this is technically possible. The fast processing speed also proves that Expekt is acting seriously.
Security and regulation – part of a strong group
Official sports betting provider is Mangas Gaming Malta Limited. The company not only holds an EU licence from the Mediterranean country, but is also responsible for Betclic’s betting portfolio. Legally, Expekt has been part of the French-Canadian Betclic Everest Group for several years. The Glückspielholding belongs financially to the strongest enterprises of the industry.
Marketingtechnisch sets Expekt on the assistance of ex-Sportstars. The former Polish football national striker Zbigniew Boniek is responsible for Germany. In the Czech Republic, Antonin Panenka, the “penalty kicker god” of 1976, is on the ball. The domestic, Scandinavian region is marketed by tennis legend Mats Wilander.
Support and customer service – Contact only in writing
Customer support is still only available in writing. Expekt renounces a telephone hotline. Nevertheless a clear improvement with an integrated Live Chat on the web page was created in the last months. Possible problems can be solved quickly and directly. But anyone who contacts the support team via email does not have to wait long for the desired information either. The average response time is a good two hours. The customer service is daily between 10 and 23 o’clock addressable.
User friendliness of the web page – partially somewhat improvement-worthy
Expekt tries to equip its customers directly on the starting side with extensive information. From our point of view this is not always successful. The betting portal lacks some clarity. Only after several clicks the “clear line” is recognizable. Basically, the bookie relies on the typical sports betting design, with the disciplines arranged on the left side of the screen. The partial listing of the special markets in the page header after the event selection is perhaps somewhat unfortunate. After our experiences with Expekt, however, the users will have familiarized themselves very quickly with the navigation paths after a short familiarization phase.
The mobile app can be loaded in seven languages. For iOS and Android users, classic download versions of the apps are available in the corresponding shops. In addition, there is an optimized website version that can be used with all common end systems. The first mobile betting with Expekt is insured up to ten euros, provided that the qualification tip is concluded for at least five euros and has a rate of 1.5 or higher.
Consume: Especially for the German sports weather extremely lucrative
Expekt is a bookmaker, which German customers should see as a serious alternative due to the betting tax exemption. The total offer of the Sweden, inclusive Casino and Poker, deserves a very good note, even if there are here and there naturally still improvement possibilities. The most important summary in the test is however that the on-line offerer is to 100% respectable. Fraud can be excluded with the Scandinavians in any form.
I bet on football, tennis and basketball. All sports are available at Expekt. In my life as a sports bettor I have not changed my betting provider yet – why should I? I am extremely happy with the services and conditions and hope that I can say the same in the future. Some time ago, I took part in the online casino, which also offers a wide range, in addition to sports betting. I enjoy the different games and recommend them to everyone who is looking for more than just sports bets.

I just always win at expekt! not every bet but at the end of the day I’m usually in the plus so it’s a real goldmine for me. maybe it’s just me but I’m completely satisfied with the offer and expect to spend more years here. Payouts are within a few days on my account but I can probably wait that is not the problem with me. The support I find not so good, because the employees only answer by email.

I’ve been registered with Expekt for several years now and probably won’t change any more. After the German gambling tax has been introduced, the odds at many other online betting providers have dropped considerably. Not so with Expekt. Therefore it makes much more sense for me to invest my money here than with any other provider who pays me less in the end. I fully trust the betting provider because he also has an EU licence. The poor customer support for customers from Germany is a great pity. I can only write an email and sometimes it takes me a while to get an answer. Nevertheless, I always get my payments securely transferred. If you often have questions when betting, you should register somewhere else. But if you want to have great odds you’ve come to the right place.

As a new player I was able to enjoy a great welcome bonus at Expekt Casino. I deposited 200 Euro and received 200 Euro bonus. Above all, there is a long period of 30 days to unlock the bonus. I did that without any problems.

In the sports betting area of Expekt I feel very well taken care of. There are numerous sports there between which I can choose. Especially in the football area there is a huge offer of games. It’s like paradise and I’m sure I still bet a lot here.

Roulette and Blackjack I wanted to play in a live casino some time ago. Now I’m stuck with the Expekt offer. And I have to say that it was a good choice. I enjoy playing there with real dealers.

Expekt is a great provider for gamblers, I think at least. Sport bets are represented there exactly the same as Casino plays and Poker. I like the interesting mixture very much. So I have everything with an offerer and must announce myself nowhere else more.
