Every year the interest in betting only grows. Betting on sports and eSports is not just a way to diversify watching matches, but also an opportunity to earn money.

However, it will be extremely difficult to do this if you trust an unverified bookmaker. In this article, we have selected 15 best bookmakers that are distinguished by reliability, a wide line and high odds.

Rating of bookmakers for sports betting and eSports


At various times, Parimatch sponsored the football clubs Shakhtar, Vorskla, Lviv, Desna, Olimpik, Metalist 1925, Dnipro-1, the Ukrainian national football team, the Ukrainian basketball Super League, the Spanish La League, many well-known bloggers, as well as sports TV and YouTube channels.

And this is not to mention cooperation with Conor McGregor, Oleksandr Usyk, Denis Berinchyk, Yaroslav Amosov, Virtus.pro, Team Unique and forZe esports teams, European football clubs Juventus, Leicester, Chelsea and Everton.

However, it would be impossible to become No. 1 in terms of the number of active players.

Parimatch did not offer the best conditions among the original brands: good odds, a fairly wide line for the main sports (some of which are written directly by the bookmaker’s employees, namely for not the most important events from the “outright” category and certain markets in an extended list of statistics), some unique betting options, as well as an extremely convenient and fast working website and mobile application.

And the last thing you can’t help but talk about is that in 2022 the company left Russia, disconnecting the country from its software and banning the use of the Parimatch brand in any format.

The Russians have not only lost the opportunity to bet and play in the casino, but will no longer be able to cooperate with the bookmaker’s affiliate program.

In addition to this, contracts with a number of ambassadors were terminated, including the esports team Team Spirit. And those athletes and media personalities who were signed by the Russian office of Parimatch, for example, Petr Yan, Andrey Tikhonov and the blogging football club Amkal, came under the wing of the newly created BC Pari (originally it was called Paribet). Despite the consonant name, it has no direct relation to Parimatch.

FavBet (Favorit sport)

Favorite Sport (FavBet) can be considered a truly Ukrainian bookmaker, as it was founded in Ukraine, had a huge number of betting shops throughout the country, and its think tank has always been in Kyiv, from where the company is still managed to this day.

Later, Favorit sport acquired branches in other regions, namely in Belarus (completely stopped its activities in this country in 2022: it closed the local office, withdrew the franchise and stopped accepting players with a Belarusian passport), Croatia and Romania.

The exact number of users from there is unknown, but it is clearly less than in Ukraine – here, until recently, the company occupied a significant market share, being a leader in its field for some time. Also, FavBet was quite popular in the CIS countries, for example, in the same Kazakhstan.

The bookmaker has never officially worked in Russia, and now it has completely cut off ties, blocking the accounts of all players with a Russian passport.

But like all other bookmakers, Favorit sport is not without flaws. The first of these is the size of the margin, which can exceed 10% in the case of matches of teams from the lower divisions of football, college basketball leagues, etc.

The second drawback of FavBet bookmaker is the need to have a certain amount in the account, otherwise watching TV broadcasts will not be available.

Previously, not the most filled line could be attributed to the minuses, but recently the choice of sporting events has become richer – especially in Live (everything in the prematch is still very modest).

On the other hand, this bookmaker has much more advantages than disadvantages. Unique offers, regularly held promotions, bonuses for beginners, so-called risk-free bets for regular customers, licensed slots and casinos – all this is about Favorite Sport.


VBET can be considered an online analogue of gambling establishments, where all types of popular gambling entertainment are collected in one place: poker rooms, slot machines (slots), casinos, TV games, fantasy sports and much more.

However, the main direction of VBET’s work is, of course, betting activity. The company has created a high-quality product that includes an uncluttered site with a convenient, intuitive interface, a wide range of sports, high odds, and, of course, freebets (sign-up bonuses) for new players.

No serious shortcomings have been found in VBET yet, but it can be said with certainty that this bookmaker is not loyal to arbers and value bettors.

In addition, the number of ways to contact the “support” is limited, and the description of not all sports is different in depth, despite the fact that there are usually a lot of markets themselves.
