Karamba Sports Introduction
Sports betting has been around as long as sport itself, and today, thanks to the internet and mobile applications, it’s easier than ever for punters to wager on the games of their choice. Originally launched in 2005 as an online casino site offering slots and scratch cards, Karamba quickly expanded to include a solid sportsbook, Karamba Sports, which today offers up a vast selection of sports betting options, including the thrills of live sports betting.
Site design and user interface
Karamba Sports has put significant effort into creating a sportsbook that is simple, clean and easy to use. Done up in light blue and grey, the menu bar offers in-play betting, an overview of the day’s events, a results section, and a cash out feature that allows punters to pocket their winnings before the game is even over.
The day’s games are listed by game category right on the home page, making it super easy to get a quick overview of the day’s action, match start times and odds.
When it comes to betting on the go or while out at the pub watching the game, the mobile app contains all of the features and functionality of the browser-based site with a slight change in the overall layout so that the most pertinent information is clearly visible as the site loads. Load time was good and a simple drop-down menu offers a complete list of the sites functions.
Registration is a simple two-step process that involves entering your email, username and password and in step 2 some scant personal information including your name, birthday, address and mobile number and your betting currency of choice.
Once you’ve opened an account, placing a bet at the cashier is just a click away.
In line with the site’s ease of use, the betting features are industry standard and wonderfully straight forward. With a total of 35 different sports to bet on you’ll never be short on options and always up to speed on where things stand with your favorites. Karamba allows you to place both single bets and acca bets as well as single bets on everything from classics like boxing, tennis, cricket, ice hockey, basketball and darts across the sports spectrum to more non-traditional betting sports such as beach volleyball, surfing or even water polo.
Better yet, for fans of in-game betting, the “Fast Markets” section provides you with the option to wager on whether a specific event, say a goal, corner, penalty, throw-in, free kick or goal kick, will occur within the next 1 or 5 minutes of a live football match, a feature we found a real blast while using the mobile app in the pub.
All in all we found Karamba a delight to use. The simple, straightforward design of both the browser-based site and the mobile app were essentially hassle free. The odds were on par with most other reputable sportsbooks and the fast markets option added a completely new dimension to watching matches while out at the pub with our mates.
