Tipico is online betting company that was founded in 2004 in Germany. Apart for sportsbook they also have casino, games and poker room. Notably they have offline presence with hundreds of betting shops round Germany. It offers quality products and quite popular outside of Germany. They were one of the first bookmakers to create mobile application since tablets and phones revolutionized betting world as well.
First of all, we should say that Tipico webpage is user-friendly and easy to navigate. Due to grey tones they do not blind you with variety of bright colors and pop-ups. Although Tipico are German company, their website is not only in German version. They are dedicated to attract more European clients, that’s why tried to please bettors from major countries in Europe. Clients can find navigation panel on the left with dropdown list of sports they offer. It’s common structure for bookie websites. You can find top events in the center block.
Money lines and odds
Tipico started operating in 2004 and unfortunately they have not added many sports since then. So their list of sports is not that wide. Still Punters can bet on football, basketball, ice hockey, tennis as well as some exotic ones. You can also find markets on American college sports, which is quite surprising for German bookmaker.
Tipico’s in-play section has one interesting and quite fascinating feature – live-chat. This way you can communicate with other bettors during in-play games. Although it may seems like silly idea, but it’s fun. They give credit to American sports and they also did everything so that British customers could also visit their website. That’s why Tipico offer markets on rugby, cricket etc.
Football is the most popular sport in Germany and it surely has effect on Tipico. Not only you can bet on Bundesliga and all lower German football divisions, you also do it before the match and during it.
Tipico has interesting system of betting limits. If you’re using betslip you are able to bet only $.25, if not it’s just $1. This differs dramatically from other bookies around the globe. However, highrollers and those who like to take risks should primarily contact customer service in order to be consulted about this issue.
We should also say that those who look for high odds may be a little frustrated with Tipico as they averagely do not go higher than 1.92.
Signing up and bonuses
We should say Tipico does have a loyalty program in order to benefit those who spend time betting and playing. You should remember that only clients with real money accounts can partake in this program. If you gather enough points you will receive a VIP stats which is very nice and useful. They also have welcome bonus and various promotions and specials.
Tipico are modern online betting company that’s why they offer various methods to deposit and withdraw finds such as Visa/MasterCard, bank transfers, Neteller, Skrill, Paypal and Ukash.
It’s highly recommended to use the same methods for both withdrawing and depositing money. Commonly, operations via various e-wallets are way faster than for example bank transfers.
Tipico always try to keep up with the tides that’s why they developed their own mobile app. It’s compatible with IOS and Android, but, Windows phone and Blackberry users can easily go with Tipico’s mobile version of the website, which is responsive and easy-to-navigate. Tipico tried to add all functions to the app that they website has, including of course in-play betting and payment system. It has nice design and downloads fast. There were any complaints about Tipico mobile app.
We should admit, Tipico’s customer service could have been much better and helpful if their clients could contact them via live-chat or mobile phone. Unfortunately, there’s only ticket system, which works great as support agents speak German and English. However, there are always small problems that could be solved via chat, but instead you have to wait for them to answer on your e-mail even if it concerns some small issue. It’s the biggest flaw of Tipico’s customer support.
