According to their official statement, Datbet has been founded in 2012, with the goal to offer esports fans the highest amount of bets on different esports games and tournaments. The crew behind Datbet sees themselves as big esports fans and tries to bring a fresh breeze into the esports scene. The bookie, situated in Panama City, not only offers win bets for most of the common esports leagues, but also much like Digibet did before, a lot of special bets for League of Legends like “First Blood”, First Dragon” or “which of the ADC’s has more farm after 25 minutes”.

At the moment you can place bets on the following games at Datbet:

Betting license

The datbet website announces that Datbet has a betting license from Curacao. Curacao grants licenses since 1996 and is also the seat of the renowned bookie Pinnacle Sports.

Payment options at Datbet

According to an employee of Datbet, they will continuously increase the offered payment options. So we should see Paypal and Bitcoints in the near future. At the moment Datbet offers the following payment options:

  • Credit Card (Visa)
  • Ukash
  • Bank Transfer
  • Union Pay
  • Paysafe Card
  • Skrill (aka Moneybookers)

How reliable is Datbet?

Important notice
Due to regulations Datbet does not accept players from the following countries:

  • USA
  • Iran
  • North Korea
  • Myanmar
  • Cuba
  • São Tomé and Príncipe
  • Sri Lanka
  • Sudan

This question is hard to answer. On one hand, the bookies website is not really state of the art when it comes to design and the betting license from Curacao may not be the most secure of all (but surely not the worst either). Since the esports bookie newly joined the business and is trying to enlarge his offer, this will surely improve in the future. Time will show, if Datbet can compete with the big bookies on the bettingmarket.

Datbet is offering new costumers a Free bet of up to € 100,- since Janaury  2014. Take a look at Datbet Free bet conditions here.

Contact and support

According to their own statement, Datbet’s support via eMail is accessible twenty-four-seven. Further contact options are not offered at the moment. Since Datbet is still a young company, we are hopeful that the contact and support options will be enahnced in the near future.


Datbet is a very young bookie, what can be seen in the websites design and some other factors. The betting license originated in Curacao might not be the best, but Pinnacle works with it since more than a century. What makes Datbet very promising is the sheer amount of bets they offer. We hope they keep this up.
