LOOT.BET is one of the most recognizable bookmakers on the esports market. If you have ever tuned in for a popular event on Twitch or YouTube, you've probably noticed the brand green color of LOOT.BET - after all, the company often sponsors both esports teams and even entire events. Contribution to esports is wonderful, but let's look at the advantages and disadvantages of LOOT.BET as a bookmaker. In this review, we will try to find out what exactly is behind the success of this brand.
- Esports focused brand
- Clear and simple functionality
- Organizer of LOOT.BET tournaments
Buckle up for a thorough review, but for those who do not want to read a lot and want to start playing on esports betting as soon as possible, here is a short list of the main advantages and disadvantages of LOOT.BET:
|LOOT.BET pros||LOOT.BET cons|
|As one of the oldest brands in the betting market, LOOT.BET has passed the test of time and can be trusted.||The interface looks stylish and is not overloaded with useless trivia. Still, more detailed tips and a beginners guide wouldn't hurt.|
|Modern design that is easy on the eyes.||LOOT.BET doesn't have a mobile app.|
|There are many esports disciplines and tournaments of any level for every taste.||It is impossible to deposit funds to your account through the popular PayPal payment system.|
|You can top up your account using cryptocurrency.|
We will evaluate LOOT.BET's performance on a 100-point scale by taking into account all aspects of a successful bookmaker.
Let's start with what all users start with - the website's user interface. This is one of LOOT.BET's strongest points. It boasts perhaps the most modern and convenient design among all popular bookmakers. All the necessary information is literally at your fingertips. There are no distracting banners, the color scheme looks stylish, modern, and doesn't irritate the eyes. Just one small nitpick here - the ability to switch between light and dark (default and currently only theme) modes would be a nice feature.
The site deftly juggles style and usability and, in our opinion, achieves an almost perfect balance. A wide overview of matches and events is not overloaded with unnecessary information. Instead, there's an option to click on the event and find out additional info about the coefficients you are interested in.
When you click on the “LIVE” button, the site quickly opens a tab with the live stream of the match you're interested in. Very convenient!
The registration form is extremely simple, and also supports quick linking of the account with popular platforms such as Google, Steam, Twitch, and others. The authorization form is similar.
You can also create an account in the old-fashioned way - using an email address and a password.
Unlike some competitors, LOOT.BET doesn't restrict its users to a single currency. Another huge plus under its belt.
Personal account: getting started
After registration, the first thing to check is your personal account. Here we will immediately see a notification informing us of the need to confirm the ownership of the account to you with the appropriate ID. You need to do it to be able to deposit and withdraw funds. The process itself is extremely simple and intuitive.
The application is processed quickly and without issues, if all the recommendations of the bookmaker about the quality of the photo are met. In our case, the website processed our application within 3 minutes. Out of all other bookmakers, this was probably the record.
Personal account: convenience
After the final step of the registration, it's time to look around in the personal account itself. Wallets in various currencies, including cryptos, are immediately visible. These are the menus in the personal account:
- Account information.
- Deposit of funds.
- Withdrawal of funds.
- Betting history.
- Payment history.
In general, the cabinet is composed logically and clearly. The bet and payment histories being separated seem odd in first, but, after all, it's a pretty sound choice.
Interactions with coefficients
The site has an option to select coefficients with the classic options: American, Hong Kong, Fractional, Standard.
It is worth paying attention to the coefficients option marked as “%". This function shows the percentage of bets from LOOT.BET users on any of the listed coefficients. Using this style, it is easy to understand who is the favorite of the event immediately. Useful for the times you're not sure who to bet on and would like additional pointers.
There is an indicator that tracks coefficient changes in real-time. While it seems interesting at first, it's actually not that useful for making informed bets. Seems to be a cosmetic choice to hype up the spectators into making bets.
Unlike many of its competitors, LOOT.BET is not overloaded with unnecessary information and flashing, unpleasant banners. The personal account menus are simple and clear. The site looks modern and updated. Registration is incredibly fast - the whole thing took only five minutes from creating an account to being able to top up your account and place bets.
This is where LOOT.BET truly shines. This bookmaker offers a massive selection of esports disciplines- 27 different titles: from popular MOBA titles (Dota 2, League of Legends, League of Legends: Wild Rift), classic FPS games (Counter-Strike, Call of Duty, Quake), and sports simulators (EA Sports NHL, FIFA), and many others.
Full list of available esports titles (LOOT.BET's main events are highlighted):
|Counter-Strike: Global Offensive||Valorant||PlayerUnknown’s BatteGrounds||Call of Duty||Quake||StarCraft II|
|Dota 2||Overwatch||Street Fighter V||Rocket League||NBA2K||Heroes of the Storm|
|League of Legends||FIFA||Underlords||StarCraft||HALO||Mobile Legends|
|League of Legends: Wild Rift||SMITE||Arena of Valor||King of Glory||Tennis||Hearthstone|
|Rainbow 6: Siege||PES2020||NHL|
This is another of LOOT.BET's strong points: nearly all popular esports events are represented. For example, you can bet on every official event in League of Legends - from the major regional leagues and international events to B-tier leagues like Challengers or LFL.
As for individual matches, there are thousands of them to choose from. Three undisputed leaders of esports dominate the landscape of LOOT.BET: League of Legends, Dota 2, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. But you can easily and quickly find more niche events, for example, in StarCraft.
Possible types of bets
Again, LOOT.BET is the undisputed leader in this category, as well. The bookmaker provides the most diverse betting system on the market. Just look at the number of options:
And this is only a small fraction of all the betting markets on the LOOT.BET platform. In fact, this screenshot shows barely a fifth of the available betting markets.
LOOT.BET is not limited to betting on a single match; tournament bets are also available here, as well as bets for even longer periods of time (outright).
Take a look at the available betting options (Counter-Strike: Global Offensive match):
|LOOT.BET Betting Markets||Types of LOOT.BET bets||LOOT.BET bets timeframes|
|Winner (match outcome)||Single bet||Standard|
|Bet on the map number (more/less)||Outright|
|Even/odd on maps|
|Different variations of all the markets above on separate maps|
|Bets on the performance of individual players|
Minimum bet in LOOT.BET
The minimum bet you can place is $0.5 or its equivalent in other currencies. It's a pretty modest limit compared to many other competitors, which makes it perfect for those trying to bet for fun, and not for the big payouts.
Unfortunately, LOOT.BET does not allow users to make trial bets without using real funds.
LOOT.BET is, without a doubt, the leader in the betting diversity (available titles and esports leagues), and receives all 20 points out of 20 in this category. The only thing that can be improved here is an option to place trial bets. However, this functionality is very rare, so it's not that big of a deal in the first place. Therefore, we do not deduce any points even though it isn't there.
The service is operated by Livestream Ltd at 95-102 Archbishop Makarios III Avenue, 1071 Nicosia, Cyprus, and is owned by Livestream Gaming Ltd, a limited liability company registered in Belize with company registration number 162.082, with legal address 9 Barrack Road, Belize City, Belize, licensed in Curacao under License No. 365/JAZ, issued by Gaming Services Provider N.V. for the provision of sports betting and casinos.
Is LOOT.Is BET legal?
Since LOOT.Bet operates within the limits of license No. 365/JAZ, its legality depends on the regional policy in the user's country of residence. It is important to pay attention to the list of countries in which this license is not valid:
- France and its territories;
- The United States of America and its territories;
- United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland;
- The Netherlands and its territories and countries forming the Kingdom of the Netherlands, including Bonaire, Sint Eustatius, Saba, Aruba, Curacao and Sint Maarten.
If your country is not on this list, it means that LOOT.BET is completely legal and fully available, and has the right to accept and pay money.
Terms of the User's Agreement
It's important to pay attention to some crucial points in the User's Agreement:
Clause 2: The brand reserves the right to change the Terms of Service WITHOUT notice, so it is necessary to return to this page often and check for changes. This, of course, is a huge con.
Clause 6.3: LOOT.BET may close or suspend the Account if it considers it does not comply with the Terms. The brand does not reserve the obligation to warn the user about this decision. Blocking the account for one reason or another will result in the cancellation of all bets - and any funds remaining on the account will be withheld.
Clause 6.4: However, LOOT.BET nevertheless informs that in case of blocking or deleting the account, the funds can be refunded.
Clause 7.1: LOOT.BET charges inactive accounts a fee of 5 Euro for every 2 years of inactivity. In this case, you will be notified of this fee a month before its deduced.
Compliance with the rules and requirements for users
|Notification of the collection of cookie data on the website||Present|
|Site availability only for users that are 18 or above||Enforced|
LOOT.BET does not stand out particularly among other brands in the field of activity, because it is regulated by the regional policy of individual countries. However, some points in the Terms of Service seem to be purposefully vague and user unfriendly. In particular, LOOT.BET's ability to alter the Terms of Service without notifying the user. The brand's ability to terminate accounts and withhold funds without explanation is worrying, as well.

Brand's regional availability
The LOOT.BET website has been translated into eight languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Turkish, Filipino, Polish, and Russian. The lack of German in this list is surprising, especially considering that this bookmaker is legal in the territories of Austria, Belgium, and other German-speaking countries. French is also completely absent. Apparently, the creators expect the French and German-speaking countries to be bilingual.
Although LOOT.BET has managed to establish itself as a solid bookmaker and a popular sponsor, it still has a long way to go in term of esports representation. The brand's regional policy also leaves much to be desired: the lack of support for such important languages as German and French cuts off a large number of potential user base.
LOOT.BET offers a wide variety of payment operators. Depending on your country of residence, different types of financial operators will be available to you. It should also be noted the variety of available currency wallets - including cryptocurrencies - available to users. Here LOOT.BET is the undisputed leader among all competitors.
Full list of available operators:
- Yandex Money;
The bookmaker offers several types of bonuses: from seasonal bonuses for big events in major esports disciplines (Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, and others), to daily “quests" in which users receive additional bonuses when performing various tasks.
The seasonal bonuses make it easier for beginners to get into betting. This sets LOOT.BET above its competitors. These bonuses are impossible to miss - a large colored banner immediately attracts attention, and the bonus conditions are detailed and easy to understand.
At the same time, paying attention to bonus' terms is vital. These bonuses often have different use cases.
For example, to transfer the IEM Cologne bonus funds to your wallet, you need to:
- Make a bet (ordinary or a combo) within 15 days after activating the bonus;
- The bet should be at a coefficient of 1.59 or higher for an amount 22 times higher than the bonus + original deposit received.
After that, you will be able to get an additional free bet for the amount of 20 Euro. This bet only works for esports events - classic sports and LOOT.BET casinos do not support it.
LOOT.BET gives its users a huge freedom in choosing financial operators and is the undisputed leader among all its competitors in this regard. At the same time, the absence of PayPal in the list of available payment operators is slightly disappointing.
After registration, LOOT.BET offers the user to install the official application. At first, we thought it would be a mobile app - but, in fact, it's just a Windows app.
The interface of the PC application looks a lot like a mobile app. In our opinion, the website interface is much more convenient and pleasant to use, and even the click response is faster on the browser version. The LOOT.BET desapp looks more like a demo version rather than a final product. It's actual usability is a bit of an enigma.
LOOT.BET on the phone
The mobile version of the LOOT.BET website is functionally identical to the aforementioned PC application. There are no complaints here - this format is ideal for a mobile format. It fits it much better than a large PC screen.
LOOT.BET mobile app
This here is LOOT.BET's biggest weakness since the mobile app simply doesn't exist. There is not a mention of a mobile application on the site. Our searches through Google Play and Apple Market have led to nothing but attempts by scammers to pass off their machinations for the official LOOT.BET application. Hopefully, the existing PC app is soon-to-be ported to mobile platforms.
This is the weakest side of LOOT.BET. The available PC application looks like an open beta test - its functionality is more inconvenient than the site itself. The mobile version of the site is quite convenient, but does not stand out in comparison with competitors. But the lack of an app for Android and iOS is downright frustrating. We hope that LOOT.BET will pay attention to this point soon.
LOOT.BET provides users with several communication channels. The most popular is the instant chat window.
LOOT.BET uses a popular online chat formula: if you have any questions, a support agent will contact you in a matter of minutes. The chat window is convenient and easy to read. There is an option to quickly attach files (for example, screenshots), which significantly speeds up requests and facilitates the work of support agents. There's also a fun feature that lets you look up and send popular GIFs. In our opinion, this is unnecessary for online support, but... Why not?
Other communication channels
If you have a question that is not so easy to solve using chat, LOOT.BET offers options to contact support via:
Although LOOT.BET offers a very convenient formula for instant chat with support agents; other communication channels are frankly lame. One phone number serves all 8 languages of the site, which creates a "bottleneck" effect.
In addition to esports betting markets, LOOT.BET offers its users additional features.
Traditional sports bettings
The site has a very developed infrastructure for betting on traditional sports like football, tennis, boxing, and many others. As part of this review, our main focus is on esports, so we will not delve into this feature - but it can be a big plus for many users.
A fairly common feature among online bookmakers - and LOOT.BET keeps up with the rest of the flock. This feature may be helpful for users who prefer a more "stable" version of online betting.
The site has a news feed where you can find information about game updates, new tournaments, or LOOT.BET events. A word of warning - you shouldn't expect to find very in-depth guides and thorough esports analytics. But, nevertheless, LOOT.BET deserves a plus for its efforts.
As all of these features are purely additional, we will not be ranking them in our final review.
|Site||Score||Number of reviews||Conclusion|
|trustpilot.com||4 out of 5||300+||The vast majority of reviews are positive. There are some negative comments about the complexity of fund withdrawal.|
|https://bookmaker-ratings.com.ua/||4 out of 5||900+||A lot of positive reviews about the variety of betting markets and the speed of payments.|
|https://www.askgamblers.com||-||-||Oddly enough, this very popular resource does not mention LOOT.BET at all.|
|reddit.com||-||<10||Mostly neutral comments.|
The comments are a little weird: on one hand, the available comments are mostly positive. On the other, some popular review sites do not mention LOOT.BET at all. After all, the overwhelmingly positive comments on sites like trustpilot.com outweigh the scale, so we believe that LOOT.BET deserves 8 points out of 10 in this category.
|Appearance and functionality||9/10|
|Available esports titles, leagues and types of bets||20/20|

Overall, this score is very high. If you live in a country that is the target audience of LOOT.BET, TIPS.GG definitely recommends giving this esports bookmaker a try.
