KTO Sportsbook Review
Launched in 2018, KTO is a new arrival on the online betting scene trying to woo punters with its great sports offer. The fresh bookie caters to all your needs, be it casino (or live casino games) or sports action. Licensed by the government of Curacao, KTO is trying to break through the ranks in a highly competitive industry. The results are positive, yet it seems that the team behind the bookie still has a lot of work to do.
No matter if you’re a beginner or an experienced punter, there’s a whole world of betting options available at your fingertips at KTO. The collection of sports is amazing for such a fresh bookie. Apart from the standard stuff like football and basketball, you can bet on eSports, squash, darts, and even netball. This, and the fact that KTO is SSC Napoli’s official betting partner (in Latin America and Africa) are the main aces in KTO’s sleeve.
Unlike many major operators, KTO doesn’t have that slick of a website. In fact, the design is pretty barebones, with most of the screen occupied by events and markets. Honestly, it looks a bit too much to take in for us. All the matches and odds are crammed into the centre, looking like a space shuttle control board.
On the other hand, experienced punters will like seeing more than a few betting options and not much else. We must mention that the website looks much better on mobile devices. The best thing about it is that the simplistic design with no flashing banners and the such allows a pretty fast experience.
There’s not a lot going on in the promotions department at KTO. At least for sports fans. You do get a welcome offer, though. New players will receive a 100% welcome deposit bonus (up to €100). It’s simple – make your first deposit (minimum of €10), place a bet in a pre-match or in-play market, and the bookie will match it.
This will double up your money and give you more chances to play and win at KTO. It’s still a shame that the bookie doesn’t feature other sports promotions. In a time when major bookmakers are offering regular promotions on different sports, it’s a misstep you don’t want to make.
But, we’re sure the team behind this new bookie is already working on special promotions. We can only hope they’re worth it.
Markets and Odds
The selection of sports and markets at KTO is deep – there’s no other word for it. With over 40 sports you can bet on and hundreds of markets available for most events, it’s a pretty impressive showing.
Football is the sport that generates the most interest. It’s nothing unusual for it to be on the top of the list. What separates KTO from the others are rare additions such as a full esports catalogue (CS: GO, COD, Starcraft 2, DOTA 2, LOL), as well as sports such as netball, bandy, and chess. You can also predict winners of special political events and the Eurovision song contest as well.
Apart from betting on fixed odds, live betting is part of KTO’s offer. Sadly, live streaming is missing in action, and we have no clue if KTO is planning to add this feature later.
KTO sportsbook is licensed by the government of Curacao. Known as one of the biggest governing bodies, the license gives this bookie credibility. It guarantees a fair and secure betting environment where you don’t have to worry about a thing.
KTO sportsbook accepts a variety of payment options and numerous currencies. Although not the largest list we’ve seen by a mile, you still get a nice collection.
You can deposit and withdraw money with Visa and MasterCard as well as bank transfer (if anyone still uses it). The e-wallets collection is much better. There’s Skrill, Neteller, PaySafeCard, ecoPayz, Qiwi, AstroPay, Rapid, and Creditos at your disposal. It’s pretty great to have all those options to pick from, which makes KTO better than many newcomers.
The processing times are instant for all e-wallets, with the withdrawal times varying. From what the website says, KTO offers pretty fast withdrawals. The limits could have been better, though. Of course, they also vary depending on your preferred payment method.
Social media presence is highly valued nowadays. It gives punters another channel to contact the bookie and track all the interesting deals on offer.
KTO took that seriously, having their own Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter profile. It’s definitely great to see a bookie that pays attention to social media, which is the leading marketing channel nowadays.
Follow the bookie’s profiles to get a lead on the best deals or simply contact it for any question you might have.
With a vast choice of sports paired with an equally impressive number of markets, KTO is a great newcomer aiming pretty high. Players have numerous banking methods at their disposal, and the bookie is present on different social media sites. Everything looks great on first glance.
However, there are things that need fixing. First and foremost, the promotions need a radical remake. The welcome offer isn’t the biggest we’ve seen, and there are no other bonuses and specials at all.
If KTO wants to attract new customers, it needs to lure them in with exciting bonuses. That’s the only way to get the attention of punters nowadays, and who can blame them? Everyone wants a free gift.
Under the lack of promotions and the questionable design lies a good bookie that could turn great with only a few little tweaks.
- Amazing collection of sports and markets
