Review last updated – January 2013
Betsson is primarily an online gambling company that was founded in 2001 by Fredrik Sidfalk, Henrik Bergquist and Anders Holmgren. Its main focus has been the European markets where it has had massive success that has led to them now being listed on the Nordic Stock Exchange and now have well over a million registered customers.
All six of the reviewers who work for this site on a regular bases have held accounts with the Betsson group for many years and all the feedback they’ve given is positive.
However we are aware of several instances where one of the casinos in the Betsson group have refused to cooperate in any way with 3rd party mediation (http://www.gamblinggrumbles.com/Reports/CasinoEuro_They-loved-him-when-he-was-losing, http://www.gamblinggrumbles.com/Reports/Bettson-Casino_Was-it-racism, http://www.gamblinggrumbles.com/Reports/Betsson-Casino_Sic-transit-gloria-mundi, http://www.askgamblers.com/casino-complaints/no-payment-at-betsson-casino-c1186 and http://www.askgamblers.com/casino-complaints/cherry-casino-withdrawal-c1024). The Betsson group have assured CasinoMeister that they are now willing to engage with 3rd party dispute mediation, but as this is the only portal they seem willing to work with, this isn't hugely reassuring.
Betsson and all casinos within the Affiliate Lounge group are marked as predatory at Affiliate Guard Dog for their use of aggressively unfriendly terms and changing contracts retroactively.

Comp Point Program 5/10
Betsson do offer a comp point program, but both the number of points you earn and the redemption rates vary by your VIP status. When boiled down their comp point program is a little better than the standard Playtech comp point program for Gold level players and is substantially weaker for all players below this level, leaving it around the industry average.
Licencing and Contact information 6/10

Betsson are part of a reasonable reputable group and their recent change in management approach to engage with dispute mediators is certainly a huge positive.
