FIXED ODDS AT INTERWETTEN
Interwetten consistently offers fixed price odds well within the top 15% of bookmakers. This is based on betting analysis performed by BookieLabrat.com across 570 bookmakers tested . Interwetten prices are consistently reasonable, but not great, value. Interwetten are good for betting on short price favourites, but on occasions offer poor odds on longshots or outsiders.
NOTE: BookieLabRat.com tested 570 online bookmakers & 10 betting exchanges this quarter and failed 92% of them. Interwetten passed with a credible 82 out of a possible 100 points.
This review is not the formal analysis, just a high level summary of the key aspects we like and don't like about Interwetten.
ASIAN HANDICAP ODDS AT INTERWETTEN
Interwetten does offer Asian Handicap odds but could sharpen their pencil! The Asian Handicap Odds offered are not nearly as strong as those available from our top recommended bookies for Asian handicap betting (Bet365 or PinnacleSports).
OTHER BETS AT INTERWETTEN
The range of betting markets and bet combinations at Interwetten in general is good - with wide ranging sports event-related special or promotional betting offers, last minute and in-play betting. All of the most popular types of bet are offered on most fixtures.
The Interwetten Sports bookmaker web site, available in 7 languages, is well designed with clear layout and very easy to find betting options. Excellent for football bets (Asian Handicaps, live and last minute betting). The fact that 65% of all Interwetten's traffic is football related is reflected in their site design - football bets are easy to find and quick to place.
Interwetten is now offering new customers a 100% deposit match to €50 Bonus Bet. New customers receive up to EUR 50 (or currency equivalent) of their first placed and lost bet. The promotion period is 10 days from registration. (Note: Portugese customers are not eligible for this bonus offer, sorry).

NOTE: Interwetten does not accept sports bets from residents of the UK, USA or Turkey.
Interwetten - WHAT's HOT
Excellent for last minute betting (as site is quick and easy to use), solid as a rock - a huge emphasis on security and fairness
Interwetten - WHAT's NOT
Given that 65% of all their traffic is on football at times we'd expect to see better odds, fees can apply on deposits and withdrawals by some payment methods, no UK punters can use the Sportsbook!

INTERWETTEN BOOKMAKER - OVERALL RATING
Recent improvements to the Interwetten web site and the addition of payout options to Moneybookers and Paysafecard make this a better betting experience. A slightly sharper pencil when offering fixed odds on favourites would atill improve Interwetten online bookmaker even more.
