Eight Years and Counting in the Online Sports Betting Industry
iBET was established in 2013 and has been actively involved in the online sports betting scene since.
Entering our eighth year this year, we have seen multiple trends come and go, just like the seasons. There were times when we felt we could not catch up. There were even more times when we fell into the hands of our competitor.
But we got back up.
Today, we are one of Asia’s top online sports betting platforms. Other than Malaysia, we have built our presence in countries like China, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Thailand. Last year, we stepped foot in Europe and made our first debut in one of the men’s top professional football divisions. A clap for the heavyweight champ, please!
Of course, all of these achievements came with hard work, patience, determination, and much more. And it is safe to say that the hustle will not stop here.
Read on to learn about our idea behind building iBET as a trusted and safe sports betting platform, the services we offer and how you can benefit from them, and why you should join iBET if you haven’t already.
iBET in Becoming the Best Malaysia Betting Website
In Malaysia, sports, especially football, bring people together. Football fans would gather at a Mamak and watch the Premier League or La Liga deep into the night with cups of teh Tarik and maybe some roti canai.
Not to forget, football fans would also have their phones ready at hand. That is, of course, to keep in close touch with their bookmakers to place or update their bets like a money line, point spread, correct score, first goalscorer, last goalscorer, and the like in the hope that their favourite footballer or club won’t let them down.
Loud cheers and hoorays would fill the air when the ball hits the net of the goal. Football fans become overjoyed because the club they root for manages to beat the rival’s ass. Their smart prediction earlier on has come to fruition. Wah, I got win money! I belanja this round la!
Yet, the pandemic has changed the ways we watch, bet on, and celebrate sports. Had COVID didn’t shake up the world so much and so fast, Malaysians would continue with this yearly ritual. Big sigh!
So this is when a sports betting site like iBET comes into play.
When we set up iBET, we didn’t want to replace traditional bookmakers, even though online sports betting has proven to be much handier and safer than offline, seeing how gambling is a sensitive talking point in Malaysia.
Instead, we set out to create a sports betting outlet where players can go whenever they want, no matter where. We wanted to give players the most exciting sports games and matches from around the world that they can bet on and watch as much as they want. Most importantly, we wanted to be a sports website in Malaysia that offers the best odds and fastest settlement time in the industry.
Sports betting is more than just predicting and placing a bet on the outcome of a sports event. It is about celebrating the sport you believe in whole-heartedly, getting rewarded for something you love, know about, and being a risk-taker.
To cut a long story short, we intended for iBET to be THE whole sports betting package with:
- a) A wide range of sports types and tournaments
- b) The best odds
- c) The fastest bet settlement
- d) A safe and trustworthy online betting environment
And we did.
What Kind of Sports Can You Bet On in iBET Sports Betting?
We are far from joking when we say we want to offer our players a wide range of sports types and tournaments. We offer three categories:
Football is the most popular sport in the world. In Malaysia, football comes first at the top of the chart for sports. We love watching it as much as we enjoy playing it.
In iBET, you can bet on local or global football tournaments. The international ones include the Premier League, FIFA World Cup, UEFA Champions League, La Liga, Serie A, France Ligue 1, Eredivisie, and Bundesliga.
We offer up to 12 football betting methods, which are:
- Match Odds 1×2
- Correct Score
- Total Goal
- First Goal
- Last Goal
- Mix Parlay
Other than football, you can also choose from a variety of sports such as handball, table tennis, darts, rugby, boxing, MMA, cricket, golf, motorsports, snooker (pool), volleyball, tennis, ice hockey, baseball, and basketball.
If you’re a fan of Esports, then you must not miss Esports betting in iBET. We have Dota2, League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and King of Glory.
Betting on Esports is the same as how you do with conventional sports. You can choose which tournament you want to join and bite your nails at the result as two Esports teams compete against one another.
Some of the bets you can place in Esports are Kills and Duration, Turrets, Dragons, Barons, Inhibitors, Full Time Handicap, Full Time Over/Under, and more.
Not many betting sites in Malaysia offer Esports betting. If you do come across some, chances are they do not have as many games and tournaments as we do. The top four Esports tournaments happening this year are the LPL 2021 Spring Season and LCK 2021 Spring Season for League of Legends, ESL Pro League Season 13 for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and King Pro League Spring 2021 for King of Glory.
iBET is a Sportsbook for Virtual Sports and Games too!
Yes, apart from betting on actual sports events, we give our players the option to bet on virtual sports too!
Virtual sports are not real. They are simulations inspired by actual sporting events. The games are not full-length, and new ones start every few minutes. A Random Number Generator (RNG) determines the outcomes of the games.
Virtual sports betting is exciting because each new session of the game is a random experience. Players cannot predict the outcomes by analysing stats or studying previous games, hoping to find a pattern because, well, they are not a factor!
Virtual sports betting is also available 24/7, 365 days. These games can come in handy when a pandemic strikes and halts all physical sports unexpectedly. We have a list of virtual sports in our library, including:
- Euro Cup
- Football Champions Cup
- Football Asian Cup
- Football League
- World Cup
- Football Nation
- Horse Racing
- Greyhound racing
If you want something virtual but not sports-related, you can try our virtual games, which come with Baccarat, Xoc Dia (Vietnam table game), Speed Baccarat, and Speed Xoc Dia.
Here is What You Need to Know About the Free Bets iBET is Giving Away!
iBET loves football too. And this is why in September last year, we travelled half the globe to show our burning passion. In 2020, iBET made its first debut in Europe. We were one of the sponsors of the official ad for the Spanish La Liga 2020/2021 season.
And we didn’t just show up as a sponsor, but we were the Barcelona and Real Madrid official virtual advertising rights holders. That’s right; we backed La Liga’s most anticipated and thrilling match!
Our advertisement, which ran along the football field’s perimeter, was powered by the Digital Billboard Replacement (DBR) technology.
To help you understand how the DBR technology works, imagine the Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid game. Football fans from Taiwan may see our ad in Mandarin, and the content is a call for them to sign up as an iBET member. But in Malaysia, we will see the ad in English, and the content is a call for them to bet in iBET.
In a nutshell, the DBR technology can change the ad following what is preferred and home language. Such has helped iBET effectively bond with our supporters from different parts of the world. And as one of the first few online betting sites to achieve this milestone, we are proud to see this achievement run on until the end of the La Liga season, which is around May.
You can catch sight of our ad via broadcasters like Now tv, Astro, Bein Sports, Sky Net, Foxtel, K Vision, and more. While you are at it, join our La Liga Snap & Win contest! You don’t even have to worry about winning because everybody can win! It is as easy as snapping a photo of our ad when you see one and uploading it to your social media so we can reward you with free bets worth RM18.
You can use that money to bet on any sports mentioned earlier. What a catch! Find out how to join this contest by visiting iBET La Liga Snap & Win.
What Else Can You Expect from the Best of the Best Online Betting Site?
Besides sports betting, you can also read the articles we write about sports. We talk about anything and everything, like football clubs and their updates, match recaps, betting odds and predictions, trivia, tips and tricks to win sports betting, and many more.
But what is all that if you cannot watch and experience the games yourself? Aha! iBET also provides other entertainment services, one of which is iTV.
iTV is a member-only benefit that allows players to watch selected sports matches such as football, basketball, or Esports, live and free. The streams are in HD quality.
