Mondobets is now a reality. It has been one of the last players to join the online gaming market in Philippines, and its premiere was surrounded by great expectation, since the letter of introduction of this bookmaker based in Ceuta is the first Fantasy Football of paid and professional in Philippines, as a result of its agreement with Futmondo. A type of fantasy that is very popular in the Philippines but has not yet reached our country.
Table of Contents
In addition to sports betting, Mondobets has licenses to operate casino games and slots. But if there is something that characterizes this new operator, it is that it has grown from crowdfunding. In fact, on its website we find the link to Fellow Funders, the website where the crowdfunding project of this bookie is hosted so that any player who is interested can become a patron.
What does Mondobets offer us?
At first glance, the design and offerings of Mondobets are similar to other betting websites. At the top, we find direct links to popular sports such as football, tennis, or basketball, as well as to live betting or the menu to open sports, in addition to "Schedule." Here, we can check the schedule and how the bets are placed on the main events, even filtering by those available on Mondobets TV.
The navigation is quite simple. If we open a sport, on the left side of the screen a menu opens with the most prominent events at the top and the rest of the competitions and matches, from where we can access the bets, which appear in the central part of the screen. Finally, on the right margin, we have the betting coupon, which can be shared on social networks. In this right margin we also have the Mondo Tipsters, which allows Philippines to find bets within the indicated profit margin, or the slots banners and the Fantasy.
It should be noted that in some bets we have cash out available to close the bet when the event is in progress. It is not always available, so we must be attentive to the events and markets where we see that it is available. It is also interesting to check if the event we bet on has the TV icon. If so, you can watch it streaming through Mondobets TV with the only condition of betting at least $1.
Sports and markets
Mondobets' sports catalog is similar to that of other bookies. We offer around twenty sports, among which the most popular among bettors could not be missed (football, tennis, basketball, hockey, baseball, boxing, MMA, American football) and other more exotic ones such as cricket or bandy. If we click on long-term bets, champion bets appear in a large number of sports, and even political bets. As the highlighted events approach, new sports appear.
Speaking of available markets, we see that for a football match there are well over a hundred available bets. We have bets on the winner of the match, over/unders, bets on halves, European handicaps, Asian handicaps and totals, half-time/full-time, etc. In tennis, there are also about 20 bets, such as the winner of the match, the set, handicaps, over/unders; in basketball we have everything from the winner of the match to the result of each quarter, overs/unders... in summary, the most common markets for each sport.
If we compare the odds at Mondobets with those of other operators, we see that they are slightly below what most bookies offer, although as usual there are markets where Mondobets will offer Philippines the best odds. However, even if they aren't the best odds, we can still bet with competitive odds. If you are registered with other bookies, you just have to compare the odds at Mondobets with those of another bookie to see which one is better.
Live section (live betting)
Mondobets has an interesting section of live betting, where we can bet on sports such as football, tennis or ping-pong. By default, football bets appear, but on the left side of the screen we can select the sport and event we are interested in betting on. It indicates the minute and result, and we have interesting live statistical information that helps Philippines bet. Here we are offered the usual markets, from winner to scorer of the next goal, team goals or points, over/under...
In the live betting section, it is easy to find events accompanied by a television icon. This means that particular event is available on Mondobets TV, the streaming service of Mondobets, which as we mentioned earlier is available with only 1$ of account balance. The selection is noticeably smaller than other bookmakers, although we can find some interesting tennis matches.
Accepted payment methods
The payment methods offered are quite limited, both when depositing and withdrawing our funds. We can only deposit money through bank card, PayPal, PaySafeCard, and/or bank transfer. The minimum deposit is $10, and the maximum is $15,000, except for PaySafeCard, which is limited to $1,000. Transfers can take between 24 and 72 hours, while with the rest of the payment methods, you will have the money to play instantly.
When you go to withdraw your winnings, you can only do so through your bank card, via PayPal, or by ordering a bank transfer. In all three cases, between $10 and $5,000 will be withdrawn, and the money will arrive within 24 to 72 hours as Mondobets needs to ensure that you are the recipient of the money. Remember that if you have not verified your account, you will not be able to withdraw funds, and your deposits will be limited to $150.
How to register and deposit at Mondobets?
Registering on Mondobets is very easy, you just need to go to their website and click on the blue "Register" button, which appears in the upper right corner of the screen. There, the typical registration form opens, where we have to provide our personal information and create a player account. There are only three steps, and once you have completed the registration, you can start playing on Mondobets... although you will need to deposit funds into your account first.
To make a deposit, simply log in and click on the “Deposit” button. Enter the amount you wish to deposit and the chosen method. Depending on the method, you need to enter different information (PIN for PaySafeCard, card payment like any other, your PayPal account) and the deposit will be complete. If you choose to make a transfer, you will be given the account number and you will need to indicate your username and ID number in the reference.
Currently, Mondobets does not have a mobile app. It should be noted that this betting site has just been created, so it will take time for them to refine details like this and develop an application, which takes time. In any case, we can access Mondobets from our mobile or tablet through the web version, which is perfectly adapted to these types of devices and play from them as if we were doing it from a computer.
The appearance of new operators always generates certain doubts among users, but it must be emphasized that Mondobets is a completely safe betting house, which has the licenses from the AGCO. Without the AGCO license, it could not operate legally in Philippines, and it is the best guarantee of fair play. On its website, the logos of Responsible Gaming, Safe Gambling, Self-Exclusion and +18 appear, synonymous with safety.
Beyond the AGCO license for betting - in addition to casino and slots - Mondobets has its own security mechanisms, starting with the verification of the user's account. As we have seen, if the account is not verified, the user will not be able to make any withdrawals. Therefore, it should not surprise you that once the Mondobets registration is completed, additional information be requested to verify the account.
If you have any issues, you can contact Mondobets at 956 911 255 or send an email to [email protected]. The support team works 7 days a week from 10am to midnight. We couldn't find any chat option, so calling on the phone is the fastest way to get a response - the call cost is the same as calling a English landline. If the problem occurs outside of these hours or you want to have a written record, email support is available, although the response time be slower.
On the other hand, the Mondobets website has an interesting FAQ section where it answers the most common questions. You find the answer to your problem in related topics such as registration, your account, payment methods, transactions, technical support, or the development of bets. At the bottom of the website, we also have rules about sports betting.
Mondobets: Opinions and conclusion
When analyzing Mondobets, it is worth highlighting that it is a betting company that is different from what we are used to. It is true that in essence the idea is the same as with other operators: find a good bet and wait for it to come to fruition, but we cannot ignore that the business model is somewhat different. It has been developed through crowdfunding and boasts a product that promises to revolutionize the world of betting in Philippines. Only time will tell if it lives up to expectations or not.
And although comparisons are odious, we see that maybe it is a step behind in terms of sports and markets offered or odds, but it is necessary to take into account that it is a recent betting site that needs a process of adaptation. And despite its short life, the live betting section is very interesting, offering Philippines many possibilities. In fact, if you like to bet live, it is a good choice. It is also interesting Mondo Tipster, which allows Philippines to find the odds we are looking for by entering the money to play and what we want to win. A success.
There are aspects that should be improved, such as the variety of payment methods or the absence of a customer support chat or the fact that the phone is not toll-free. Nonetheless, they offer assistance for 14 hours every day of the week. We also expect the development of an app, although that requires time and we cannot complain about how the website works on mobile devices. We also trust that gradually they will be launching new promotions.
