Winners dare more!
It’s time for another casino review this time focusing on Bethard. This online casino is known for two things in particular, their front figure Zlatan Ibrahimovic and there satirical take on macho men.
Bethard is originally Swedish but after success back home they decided try more markets and India is one of them. Their goal is to give players an experience themselves as gaming professionals had been missing. At Bethard India you can find a sportsbook, casino, live game shows, fantasy sports and live casino.
So far there have been no Mega Moolah winners at Bethard India so you could very well be the first! In my Bethard India review I will share with you my opinions about all parts of the casino so you know what to expect and if it seems like a casino that you like. Feel free to use the table of contents below for easier navigation.
Is Bethard safe to play at?
There are three things in particular you should look at when it comes to understanding if a casino is safe- licenses, offline presence and certificates. If a online casino has a eGaming license it means they have been investigated thoroughly by a government body. To receive a license everything in the casino has to be in order and they are judged by very strict demands. Bethard has been awarded several licenses including from Malta, Curacao, United Kingdom and Denmark.
With offline presence I mean how much the casino is visible with physical entities. For example though they sponsor any sports club or tournament, do they have any ambassadeurs or do they sponsor arenas? Physical presences like this show that other serious business have also investigated the casino and decided they are willing to associate their name with them. Bethard has Zlatan Ibrahimovic as their main ambassadeur and from what I have read about Zlatan is that he is a business man and he would never be associated with a fraudulent casino.
Lastly we have certificates and with this I mean safety certificates in particular. Bethard has several different safety protocols in place to protect you private data so you never ever need to worry about filling in any of your payment details or personal information. The gambling website is SSL protected and follows ISO27001. This is a data protection protocol set up by International Organization for Standardization with headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.
So is Bethard trusted and safe to play at? Yes, very much yes! I determine that Bethard is 100% safe to play at.
Bethard Casino Bonus
An important part of trying out a new casino is to also be able to enjoy some kind of bonus as a form of welcome. At Bethard you have the option to choose one of three different Welcome bonuses – one for the sportsbook, one for the casino and the last one for the live casino.
For all of you Mega Moolah lovers I’m guessing that the Bethard casino welcome bonus is the most interesting one so let’s start with that! Bethard wants you to be able to try out as much as possible in their casino so they will match your first deposit 100% up to €100. This means twice as much money to play with, amazing!
The sportsbook bonus is also nice but not quite as large. Bethard India will match your first deposit 100% up to €50. The Live Casino bonus is the largest bonus available and your first deposit will be matched 100% up to €200
Can I use the bonus for Mega Moolah?
This one is a bit tricky when it comes to the casino bonus. As you probably know there are some terms and conditions when you receive free money from casinos. Bethard terms and conditions revolve around two different things in particular, wager requirements and the wager contributions.
Bethard India Casino bonus has one of the lowest wager requirements I have encountered which is x20. This means you need to wager your bonus amount a total of 20 times.
This may sound like a lot but remember that most slots have more than 96% return to player, Mega Moolah has 96.98% RTP. Theoretically this means that you are able to play through your €40 bonus money 20 times and in the end only lose €2. This isn’t exactly how it works in the end due to the different volatilities of slot machines but with a low volatility slot the chance are higher that it will turn out like this.
You are free to use the bonus money on Mega Moolah but the tricky part is that it gives you 0% wager contribution. To make it easier for you to choose how you want to play through your bonus I added a complete list of all the wager contributions below.
Instant win/scratch cards: 100%
Live Casino: 20%
Table Games: 0%
Video Poker: 0%
Progressive jackpot slots: 0%
All other games: 0%
I wouldn’t recommend you to use your deposit bonus on Mega Moolah but rather on another slot machine, preferably with low volatility, and if you win use that money for Mega Moolah instead.
Deposit and withdrawals
Let’s start with the negative part of this section before we get to the more informative part. One thing I don’t like is that in Bethard terms no specific sums are ever specified and it repeatedly only says “is at all times decided by Bethard”. In my opinion this feels like they can change the minimum deposit and withdrawal amounts fast without any consideration. In theory this also means that my minimum deposit amount can be €5 and my friends be €1 since Bethard will decide at all times.
There, now we are done with the negative part and let’s get started on the more informative part. Deposits are available using a bank card, wire transfer from your bank account, e-wallet, mobile carrier billing and voucher.
Deposits are instant.
Withdrawals need to be made the same way the deposit has been made. For example if you deposit with your credit card you will also need to withdraw any earned money to the same card. Good to have in mind when you are deciding with what to deposit.
There are no Bethard withdrawal times stated in the terms. When I asked the customer service the said that Bethard are “fast”. In my world 10 seconds is fast but in their world 2 days can be fast so I do not know how long withdrawals take.
Loyalty program & campaigns
There are many great things with Bethard sadly their loyalty program is not one of them. The Bethard Loyalty program is more of a VIP program where only high rollers are awarded for their gambling.
I myself play quite a bit but I know that I don’t play nearly enough to be able to reach high roller status. I contacted the Bethard customer service to find out more about what criteria they had to be able to be a part of their loyalty program and what the rewards were.
Apparently the customer service do not know what the loyalty program is based on either and couldn’t give me any information. This probably means if you spend a lot you will be awarded greatly since they do not award the regular players. So big spenders Bethard will most likely award you greatly.
Casino games at Bethard
There are several different casino games at Bethard. You can find slots, table games, live game shows, jackpot games and a great live casino. So whatever you prefer I am sure you will find something that you love!
The selection of jackpot games at Bethard India can be described as quality over quantity. There are 18 different jackpot slots available but they have some of the best jackpot games available. First of all Mega Moolah, the one and only, but they also have great jackpot slot machines like Divine Fortune and Dragon Chase Rapid.
The jackpot games come from both new and up and coming slot providers like Yggdrasil and Quickspin and famous slot providers like NetEnt.
Compared to other Indian casinos Bethard doesn’t have that many online jackpot slots. LeoVegas and Casumo have around 60 jackpot titles each and 10Cric has around 30. If you are all about jackpot slots you might want to go try out one of online casinos mentioned last instead. If you like Mega Moolah and then just want an all around good online casino I would say that Bethard definitely is worthing staying with
At Bethard you can find more than 400 different slot machines ready for you to play. I have to say that whoever chose the slot machines to be featured at Bethard did a great job! Several of my favorite video slots are available and they also have all my favorite slot providers.
There are several good options to play through the wager requirements of the welcome bonus. The two I would recommend are Wild Worlds and Bollywood Story, both from NetEnt. This isn’t the only great slot provider you will be able to find here either. Other examples are Quickspin, Big Time Gaming, Pragmatic Play and Booming Games.
Bethard slot machines feature a nice diversity of volatilities and formats as well. You can try each video slot in a demo version on the site as well so you know how to play it once you decide to do so for real money.
The Live Casino at Bethard is nothing special to be honest. They do not have their own studio but they do work with some the best live casino providers available, Authentic Gaming and Evolution Gaming.
There’s around 20 different games to choose from with the most popular ones being Bethard Auto Roulette, Dream Catcher and Live Lightning Roulette.
Since both Evolution Gaming and Authentic Gaming are both european companies with studios in Europe there aren’t any dealers of Indian origin. In my opinion this is fine still since the dealers provided are profesional, beautiful and funny.
Bethard live casino minimum bet varies between the games but the lowest bet available I could find was €1. Several games offer this low entry level bets. Something I liked to see available as well is Super Sic Bo showing that they try to keep up with the asian market. Hopefully we can see some other Indian games available soon!
Live Game Shows
The live game shows provided at Bethard is a fun new way to be able to make bets in popular game show formats. You have a whole show available to view while you are making bets! Really cool if you ask me.
The games available include Deal or No Deal, Dream Catcher, Lightning Roulette and Lightning Dice.
The sportsbook is the main focus of this gambling site. Since Zlatan is their main ambassadeur, football is their most popular game. You can bet on a huge variety of different football games with unique odds.
Other popular sports for Bethard India include cricket, tennis and basketball. Live betting is also very popular and even has its own section at Bethard. When you enter you will see all the games currently available to bet on with odds. The live betting is mobile optimized so you can watch the game wherever you want and still be able to place bets.
I really enjoy the Bethard sportsbook because I can see that they put a lot of thought behind it. The user experience is great, it is easy to navigate and most of all I feel comfortable making the more doubtful bets because as their slogan says “Winners dare more”!
Bethard Mobile app
Bethard is very mobile compatible and offer an Android app and another IOS app for iPhones and iPads. They also have a mobile browser casino which is great so no matter what mobile you have you are able to enjoy Bethard.
In the mobile apps and mobile browser casino you can find sportsbook, live betting, casino and live games. The assortment of games is slightly different but I still will say that it is great. When it comes to sports and live betting everything you can find on the desktop casino is also available in the mobile.
There are more benefits with the apps like exclusive push notification bonuses and easier navigation.
The customer support at Bethard is acceptable. The answers I have received have sadly not been the best and I was constantly referred to their terms and conditions which I did not completely understand and was the whole reason I contacted the customer support in the first place.
What is good though is that they answer fast and are available 24/7/365. You can contact the customer support by mail and live chat. They also have a faq but it is not that good.
Why you should sign up at Bethard
Now we have reached the end of my Bethard India review and if you have read all this way I would just like to say a big thank you! As you have seen there are both negative and positive aspects about this casino but it is still a good casino otherwise I would not recommend it.

- Safe and trusted
- Zlatans favorite!
