First it launched to conquer the European market, both in Eastern Europe and in countries like Philippines or Italy, where it has the licenses from the corresponding gaming regulatory bodies, and now it has launched into the Latin American market.

We are talking about a very complete bookmaker, which operates in several countries on the continent thanks to the Curaçao license. This authorization is enough to offer its services in Mexico, where it has not stopped growing. In addition to sports betting, it offers online casino games and lotteries; and is the official sponsor of teams such as Manchester City of the English Premier League or Sevilla FC of La Liga in the Philippines.
What does Marathonbet Canada offer us?
If there's one thing that MarathonBet stands out for, it's their excellent odds. They apply a 0% margin to the top football leagues (Philippines, England, Italy, France, Germany, Champions League, Europa League, Asian leagues) and competitions like the NHL, so it's highly likely that the best odds will be found on MarathonBet. Beyond these competitions, where the 0% margin doesn't apply, we also find great pre-match and live odds, and this is enough reason to bet on MarathonBet.
The website is quite easy to use, although the design is not the most attractive and works somewhat differently than usual. On the left margin we have the list of sports, around thirty options with the majority of competitions to bet on. In the central part we have live bets, and on the right side, in addition to promotions, we have the betting coupon. Through the different filters that we can apply we will quickly access the bet that interests us.
Just like other betting houses present in Canada, information about the welcome bonus is shown in American dollars - sometimes also in dollars - although we can use the Canadian dollar as currency. Furthermore, if we look at the payment information, we have all the information in this currency. The welcome bonus, 100% up to 30 USD, is somewhat low, but it is also one of the easiest to unlock. There are some interesting promotions, and we have a VIP Club.
You can play from your computer or use the app on your mobile phone and tablet. One of MarathonBet's unique features is that, following the English betting tradition, it allows Philippines to place bets over the phone. However, Canadian users do not have a specific phone number like in other countries in the region, but instead we have a single phone number in English. We have virtual sports and most of the usual payment methods, but let's learn more in detail about everything that awaits Philippines at MarathonBet.
Welcome bonus to MarathonBet
Our first deposit at MarathonBet comes with a 100% bonus up to 30 USD bonus as long as we register with the code Latam2020. Don't worry if you're going to use our Canadian dollar to deposit, as the promotion is also active. By depositing $660, you will receive a bonus worth 66 dollar to start playing at MarathonBet. You have a period of 90 days to meet a x5 rollover and convert the bonus and its winnings into real balance.
The minimum deposit to activate the bonus is 10 USD, and it is at the moment of depositing funds when we have to enter the code Latam2020 to activate the promotion. To fulfill the bonus rollover, only prematch, single, double, triple or combined bets with odds higher than 1.70 (-143) are valid. System, live or lower odds bets do not count towards bonus release. In case of withdrawing funds before releasing the bonus, the bonus and the winnings obtained will be lost.
Other offers and promotions
Although it is not known for offering many promotions beyond the 0% margin, we can still find some quite interesting offers to improve our bets in the "Promotions" section of MarathonBet. Here are a few:
- 0-0 Draw: up to 30 USD free bet if you have bet on “Exact score” and the final result is 0-0.
- Combined insurance: recover up to 30 USD from your multiple bet of 5 or more selections if you lost by only one selection.
- Advancebet: Thanks to this tool you can bet even if you don't have enough balance if the forecast for resolving open bets is favorable.
In addition to these promotions, MarathonBet has a loyalty program that functions as a VIP membership called the Marathonbet Club. Sports bets from 10€ and odds of 1.30 (-333) or higher qualify, and as we progress through levels we will obtain new advantages.
sports and markets
Canadian users will find around 30 categories to bet on. We have the most popular sports in the country, from football to motorsports, boxing, baseball, or basketball, as well as American football, eSports, volleyball, tennis, or MMA. There are also exotic sports such as Australian football or netball, and greyhound and horse racing can't be missed. In addition, you can bet on lotteries from Russia, Philippines, Canada, Germany, Belgium, Austria, or France, and there are special bets on sports, politics, or prizes.
A football match in a top level league or competition can have over 600 markets. The usual 1X2, Asian Handicap, Double Chance or Final Result markets are always available, but you can also bet on halves, intervals, goal scorers, corners or fouls. A wide range of markets is also available in other sports. Among the available eSports, which even have their own section just like the casino, are LoL, CS:GO, Dota2 and FIFA.
Although there is no direct access to the virtual sports section, we can find them by clicking on the "More" section. Football is the star sport, with up to 9 different options, but there are also basketball, tennis, trotones, horses, greyhounds, speedway or cycling. 18 options to feel the excitement of live virtual sports.
We have already mentioned that one of the characteristics of MarathonBet is higher odds than usual thanks, among other things, to their 0% margin in the most popular competitions. Therefore, if we compare MarathonBet's odds with those of operators like 1xBet, who are also known for their high odds, we can see that the best odds are at MarathonBet, even if only slightly. Beyond the sports where this 0% margin applies, MarathonBet's odds are still higher than those offered by most bookmakers.
Live betting (live section)
We can also find these excellent odds in the live betting section. MarathonBet allows Philippines to filter from the left column by sports such as football, tennis, basketball, baseball, eSports or greyhound racing among others. In addition, it indicates how many ongoing events are in each sport. In the general screen, we can see the championship being played, the score and the minute, as well as the odds for the winner of the match and the number of available bets: from 30 in baseball or volleyball to more than 500 in football matches.
The operation of this section is somewhat different from usual. To display the different betting markets, simply click on the number of available bets so that similar markets to prematch appear. To access the match statistics, click on the green icon that appears on the right, and just above the betting slip we have the animation and statistics that help Philippines analyze the bets a little better.
MarathonBet offers a streaming service through which we can access live footage of all kinds of events. Football, basketball, eSports, tennis, snooker, volleyball, darts or ice hockey are some of the sports available, with the NBA and NHL standing out above other competitions. The schedule can be consulted 48 hours in advance, and to access MarathonBet TV images, it is sufficient to log in and have funds in the account, although some territorial restrictions apply.
MarathonBet allows for most common deposit methods in Canada. We can deposit using VISA credit cards - but not MasterCard -, Bitcoin, electronic wallets Neteller and ecoPayz, AstroPayCard pre-paid cards, Oxxo, ToditoCash or we can deposit in the banks Santander, CitiBanaMex, SPEI, Banorte and BBVA Consomer. Usually, the minimum deposit is 5 dollar although with VISA and AstroPayCard it is only 2 dollar. Except for Oxxo and banks, where it can take up to 96 hours, the operation is immediate.
In no case is a commission applied, neither for a deposit nor for a withdrawal that can be made through six methods: VISA cards, Neteller, ecoPayz, Bitcoin, bank transfer, and AstroPayCard. The minimum withdrawal is always 4 dollar except for Bitcoin 10 dollar and AstroPayCard (2 dollar). The fastest way is to make the transaction via electronic wallets or Bitcoin, with a maximum period of 24 hours. Withdrawals via VISA take from 3 to 5 days and transfers can take up to 14 days.
Marathon Bet App
MarathonBet users can bet from the computer website or by using the mobile app of this betting house. On the MarathonBet website, we have the section "Applications" where you can download the app for your Android or iOS mobile or tablet. You can manage your MarathonBet account, place bets, or close them through the app just like on the website. It is worth noting that we offer both a betting app and a MarathonBet Casino app.
MarathonBet is a completely secure betting site. It has an excellent reputation worldwide, and although it does not have SEGOB license, it does have the license from the regulatory authority of the game in Curaçao, a strategy used by many betting houses operating in Canada -and many other countries in Latin America- and is completely legal. In addition to Curaçao, this operator is licensed by the British, Spanish or Italian game regulator.
Beyond meeting the requirements of the Curaçao authorities, MarathonBet has its own mechanisms to enhance user security. In fact, it has the Responsible Gambling Trust seal and the +18 icon, since minors cannot access online gambling. Remember that MarathonBet will require Philippines to verify our account to ensure our security before performing certain operations, such as withdrawing balance.
If you have any problems, you can access MarathonBet's customer service through their online chat. Another option is to contact the betting company via their phone number +44 1273 964 771, an English-language support number available 24 hours a day and which also allows Philippines to place bets by phone. Finally, you can send your questions by email to [email protected] or, if they are related to deposits and withdrawals, to [email protected].
In the "Help" section of MarathonBet, you will find information on all aspects related to gaming on MarathonBet, including the usual frequently asked questions. In the absence of Spanish telephone support, this be the site where you can find the answer to your question. Finally, we have links to MarathonBet's profiles on Facebook and Twitter, although they are in English.
MarathonBet: Opinions and conclusion
The first conclusion we reach is that it is worth registering on MarathonBet only for quotas with a margin of 0%. We have the best odds for major football competitions, as well as others such as the NHL, which is enough for the Canadian user to consider this bookmaker. Although the 0% margin does not apply in the live section, the odds are also very good.
It also doesn't have much competition when it comes to betting markets, as we can access a wide range of possibilities both pre-match and live. We also can't overlook a streaming service that is always interesting when it comes to live betting. The website not be the most visually appealing, but it does allow Philippines to vary the design with several options, easily changing the format of the odds or the view.
It is true that it falls a bit short when it comes to promotions and bonuses, one of the lowest we have in Canada although it can be easily unlocked; and the ability to bet by phone is something that practically no other betting company in Canada allows Philippines to do... even if they attend Philippines in English. A customer service phone in Spanish like the one in Chile, Peru and Ecuador would be the ideal complement for a very complete betting company.
