TonyBet was founded as a sportsbook in 2009 by renowned poker pro Antanas Guoga aka Tony G. More recently, the Estonia-based site has integrated a robust casino into the active sports betting site. The casino combines a couple hundred slots with a good selection of poker variants and table games, including dozens of live dealer offerings. Totally instant-play and mobile-friendly, the site is licenced by the Estonian authorities. TonyBet welcomes UK players, and has a loyal following here.
The emphasis on sports is clear: the first two tabs for the sportsbook, with a separate section for in-play action. The site focuses on football, basketball, ice hockey and tennis, but another dozen plus sports are also covered. The interface is exceptionally clean, a pleasant place to bet on your favourites worldwide.
The third tab is Live Casino and it’s packed with blackjack, roulette, poker, and baccarat games, over 50 in all! Evolution Gaming is the lead live dealer provider, but Lucky Streak and NetEnt also showcase their offerings. Several of the live games have several variants which differ only in their entry and betting requirements, with the highest limit games reserved for “VIPs”.
In addition to the Live Casino, there is another tab for Live Games. There you can choose among dice, poker, and other less-standard betting games.
Poker has its own table, really a full blown website. TonyBet claims to being the first to offer Open-Face Chinese poker and the casino is going all-in to make this novelty a popular success. TonyBet has also reintroduced and updated its Grinderz poker league, with cash prizes for the winners. But if you want to play in the poker tourneys, you will need to download software for the device of your choice.
There are a couple hundred slots in the online casino section, most provided by NetEnt, NYX. and Quickspin. It’s a patchwork collection, and you may be hard-pressed to find some of the more popular games from these top vendors. But you will find Spinions, the beach party slot from Quickspin. NetEnt’s Jumanji, Witchcraft Academy, and Bloodsuckers, along with Pragmatic Play’s Hercules, Son of Zeus.
Every game in the TonyBet collection is instant-play, and mobile support is superb with most games running in your browser.
Withdrawals have a long pending period of up to 72 hours. Expect 2-5 days for credit and debit cards withdrawals. Cheques are not accepted. Withdrawals to e-wallets should take just a day, but make sure you withdraw by the same method with which you deposited.
