Funbet Overview

As per our Funbet review, it is one of the few betting sites in India that puts the fun in betting. This has it all from diverse sports betting markets – including cricket – to live casino, attractive welcome bonus, Indian deposit and withdrawal methods, and responsible gambling.

Funbet – a rising underdog in sports betting

At Bet India, we have reviewed plenty of sports betting sites, but Funbet deserves to be mentioned with the best. In our evaluation of this operator, we have explored, in detail, the different betting markets and features available to Indian players. With that, we have also given the payment section and live chat a fair amount of thought and research so you don’t have to.

Is Funbet safe?

Asking if Funbet is safe is like asking if your Domino’s pizza will be delivered on time – the answer to both is a resounding yes!

  • Funbet is licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and the Gambling Commission –  two of the world’s biggest online casino governing bodies.
  • It is owned by Genesis Global Limited – the same guys behind plenty of other online casinos in Europe. In other words, they know what they are doing and have researched thoroughly for the Indian markets.
  • Advanced encryption technology is also used to safeguard your payment details and other information.

To summarise this shortly, yes Funbet is safe, secure, and trustworthy. You can bet on your favourite sports, safely and responsibly.

How to sign up at Funbet

Signing up at Funbet India is just as easy as opening an account with Swiggy, Zomato, or any of the other social sites online.

Review of withdrawals at Funbet

Mentioned below are all the deposit and withdrawal options available to you at Funbet India.

As you will see in our Funbet review, you cannot use all the deposit options to withdraw the funds, with the exception of Net Banking and E-Wallets.

In other words, your deposit and withdrawal methods should match accurately.

For example, if you deposit the funds using Google Pay or Paytm, you will be able to withdraw your winnings using Bank Transfer.

Similarly, if you use e-wallets to add funds to your Funbet account, then you can withdraw only to the respective e-wallet, not through Bank Transfer.

Method Min Deposit Min Withdrawal Withdrawal Time
Paytm Rs. 800 NA NA
Google Pay Rs. 800 NA NA
Visa Rs. 800 NA NA
UPI Rs. 800 Rs. 1600 2-3 Business Days
Net Banking Rs. 800 Rs. 1600 2-3 Business Days
MasterCard Rs. 800 NA NA
Skrill Rs. 800 Rs. 1600 Instant
Neteller Rs. 800 Rs. 1600 Instant
EcoPayz Rs. 800 Rs. 1600 Instant
Jeton Rs. 800 Rs. 1600 Instant
MuchBetter Rs. 800 Rs. 1600 Instant

One thing is certain here – unlike other betting sites like Bet365, the payment options at Funbet are highly Indianised. You can deposit and withdraw funds by using your Google Pay or Net Banking accounts. Alternatively, you also have the option of using e-wallets like Neteller, Skrill, et cetera.

In fact, we have only seen a few other operators like 10CRIC and Betway that offer this level of localised payment options to recharge your betting account.

As for the safety and speed itself, that shouldn’t be a problem here. Deposits are processed instantly while withdrawals are along the same lines, except for Net Banking.

Verifying your Funbet account

Just like any other betting site or casino, you must fulfil your KYC obligations and verify your account at Funbet. It is absolutely non-negotiable.

Without this, there is a very big possibility that you may not be able to withdraw your winnings at all. For more information, check out our detailed guide on account verification.

This verification can be done under the ‘Documents Upload’ section under your profile.

You will need to upload your ID proof’s front and backside, along with a utility bill for the last 3 months, and a copy of your credit card statement.

Verify your Funbet betting account by uploading your documents and fulfilling KYC obligations

After you have uploaded the documents, it may take up to 72 hours for your account to be verified.

Net Banking/UPI

Within Net Banking, you will find all the leading banks available to you, to make a deposit. Some common names include the State Bank of India, Axis Bank, Kotak Mahindra, Yes Bank, and others.

Within UPI, you will find BHIM, Google Pay, Phone Pe, and Paytm.

How to deposit at Funbet

Funbet has made it extremely easy for its customers to make a deposit and start betting quickly.

TIP: You can choose only one welcome bonus. You can do this only during your first deposit.

STEP 1: Select the ‘Deposit’ icon at the top of your profile.

Click on the deposit icon to add funds to your account.

STEP 2: Select your payment option.

STEP 3: Enter the amount you want to deposit. If you have a code you will like to redeem, this is the place to do it.

Enter the amount and select the payment method to add funds to your Funbet account

STEP 4: A prompt will appear asking you to confirm the purchase. Click on ‘Complete Purchase’ and proceed.

STEP 5: Enter the account details for the payment method chosen. For example, if you chose an e-wallet, you will need to enter your login id and password.

If you choose Net Banking/UPI, you will be asked to enter your UPI id/Net Banking login credentials.

Enter the netbanking details/e-wallet credentials to add funds

STEP 6: Follow the on-screen prompts and finish the transaction.

STEP 7: It’s time to play. Your deposit will soon appear in your betting account.

How to withdraw at Funbet

Withdrawing at Funbet is just as easy at depositing.

STEP 1: Visit your profile and click on ‘Withdraw’ from the several options available to you.

STEP 2: Enter the amount you wish to withdraw and select the payment method.

STEP 3: Follow the on-screen prompts, and you are done!

Funbet welcome bonus

Funbet has amazing welcome bonuses for both casino games and sports betting. 

NOTE: You can choose only one bonus while signing up to Funbet.

Sports bonus at Funbet

So, what is the sports welcome bonus at Funbet for new players?

Your first deposit at Funbet will be matched up to 100%, at a maximum of Rs.10,000.

For example,

  • If you deposit Rs.5,000 in your first sign-up at Funbet, the operator will credit the same amount to you in your betting account
  • Similarly, if you deposit Rs.15,000, Funbet will match it up to Rs.10,000 since that is the maximum limit set by the operator

If it helps, think of it as Swiggy or Zomato offering you a free dish on signing up with them! Or a shopping chain like Westside, offering you 2 free jeans on a purchase of 2 or more.

How welcome bonus works

If you win, you take the winnings. If you lose, well, you will not lose anything really since you bet with the money that did not really come out of your pocket! This is definitely a good deal as you’re getting free money to play with and get your betting journey off to a good start!

Sites like Casumo also have similar bonuses. It is also worth mentioning that not every operator is this generous when it comes to treating their new members. Bet365 is one such case where the welcome bonus may not be as enticing as this one.

Of course, some strings are attached to it, more commonly referred to as wagering requirements or in layman’s terms, terms and conditions. We have explained the same below.

How to get the sports bonus

Remember: You can get the welcome bonus – sports or casino, only at the time of making your first deposit. After your first deposit, you will not be able to claim any of these welcome bonuses.

That said, mentioned below is a quick, handy guide on how to go about claiming your Funbet bonus:

STEP 1: Register at Funbet – we have already explained this in detail.

STEP 2: Deposit a minimum of Rs.800 or more.

STEP 3: Enter the bonus code: WFUNBETSBIN in the bonus code field.

Enter the promo code in the field to activate your sports bonus with Funbet.

STEP 4: Profit! – Funbet will match your qualifying deposit amount to a cap of Rs.10,000

Terms and conditions:

  • The bonus is available to new customers only
  • The minimum qualifying deposit is Rs.800
  • Deposits made via e-wallets are not eligible for the bonus. In other words, if you want the free bonus of up to Rs.10,000, you will need to use UPI or credit card methods
  • This 100% match bonus can be utilised only on sports markets
  • The qualifying deposit and bonus must be wagered/betted six times
  • The bets must be placed on events with odds at least 2.0 and above
  • The bonus has an expiration range of 30 days. In other words, you have to fulfil your wagering requirements within the mentioned time. Otherwise, you will forfeit your bonus
  • Lastly, any returns or winnings from the bonus will not include the free bet. For example, if you use your free bet of Rs.1,000 to win Rs.2,000, you will still get only Rs.1,000 in return.

Casino bonus at Funbet

The Funbet casino bonus is incredibly similar to the one we just saw for sports, except that the 100% match bonus is up to Rs.16,000. With that, you will also get 50 free spins on the popular slot game Starburst.

As mentioned earlier, you can qualify for only one type of bonus at a time. If you have already taken the sports bonus, you will not be eligible for the other.

Terms & conditions

  • E-wallets deposits are not eligible for welcome bonuses
  • The welcome bonus needs to be wagered 40 times before you can withdraw the funds or any winnings generated from it
  • Only certain games will fully count toward meeting your wagering conditions. Additionally, all jackpot games, live games, and video poker games will not accept bonus funds

Loyalty programme & promotions

We did not find any sort of loyalty programme at Funbet. Perhaps, this is something we will see down the line in the future.

Maybe, they can take cues from the likes of Casumo, which features an exciting level-up loyalty programme. 

Check out the Casumo India review to find out more about this amazing feature!

Coming to the promotions, while Funbet has done well to offer some offers to its ever-growing fanbase, it still has ways to go when compared to the likes of 10CRIC or Betway.

10CRIC features regular promotions specific to each ongoing event. You have Big Bash Boost, Ace Tennis Free Bets, Indian Super League Football Free Bets, and so much more.

Similarly, Betway too has ongoing promotions covering India’s major cricket tournaments, the IPL, and everything else.

This type of variety on these sites is something that Funbet lacks at the moment but who knows; perhaps we will see them take a similar approach soon.

We look forward to seeing how they will improve in the future! Hopefully, we will see more cricket and football promos in the future.

App review at Funbet

Funbet does not have a dedicated betting app at the moment. That said, you will be pleased to know that their entire sports betting platform and markets are completely optimised for mobile usage – Android and iPhones.

If you are looking for a dedicated betting app, we recommend 22Bet. Check out our 22Bet review here.

That’s right – apple and android fans can bet on the go at Funbet, right from the comfort of their device. Any betting activity that you can imagine, you can do it all and then some more with your phone.

The user interface is simple and tidy. The site is also quick to load. You will find almost all the functionalities that you would expect in the desktop version.

Sports betting at Funbet

If you are looking for a fun way to bet on sports, it does not get any better than Funbet. Whether it is their incredible welcome bonus or an interesting array of sports betting markets available, the operator has done well to understand the Indian markets and offer them just what they want.

Cricket betting

Obviously, cricket betting is a big part of Funbet – it is safe to say that without it, it may not be able to do that well in the Indian market.

Tournaments like the Big Bash League, Indian Premier League, India-Australia Series, and everything else is significantly covered. With that, Funbet also has ongoing promotion around cricket betting markets as a whole, rather than an individual tournament.

cricket betting markets at Funbet.

Of course, international tournaments like England-Australia Series, Pakistan Super League, UAE T10 League, and World Cup are also covered by Funbet.

And here’s the best part – the markets offered are very much similar to what you would see at 10CRIC. There is not a lot of difference in terms of odds too, except for some markets.

Kabaddi betting

Since the Pro Kabaddi League was scrapped last year, it is yet to be seen if kabaddi betting will be an option here. Of course, it is not unreasonable to expect it, given the popularity of the competition in India.

Football betting

Football is the second most popular sport in India after cricket. It comes as no surprise to see them do well in football betting markets.

Indian Super League, Premier League, La Liga, and Champions League are obviously their biggest performers. With that, you will also find additional football leagues to bet on from all corners of the world, including Italy, France, Belgium, Australia, and the USA.

All leading football leagues from across the world are available in funbet football betting markets

But what makes us take further notice here is the depth of the markets. To a novice eye, the differences may not be noticeable but to the experienced, there are a few additional markets one can bet on, possibly not available at the other sports betting sites in India.

For example, the Double Chance market is one thing that we found here and not at 10CRIC.

Tennis betting

Fans of tennis in India can bet on ATP and WTA events on Funbet. Tennis betting is an equally big part of this sports betting site as much as cricket and football.

Along with the four Grand Slams – the US Open, Wimbledon, Australian Open, and French Open, you can also place your bets on other Masters and Premier tournaments, and even the ITF, low-tier competitions. The selection of markets is pretty much similar to what you would find at other betting websites.

Live betting features

It is hard to imagine a sports betting site without any sort of live betting features and Funbet has done very well in this regard.

You can check out their ‘Live’ section to see what events and matches are available for you to bet live. Football, tennis, basketball, ice hockey – there is no shortage of games from all around the world where you can bet on!

Funbet live betting

The only bad thing here is there is no live streaming – understandably so since the broadcasting rights may be hard to come by.

That said, you will be able to make smart bets by looking at the statistics and numbers in real-time. All the data is presented to you in a simple, easy-to-use manner so you can make quick live bets on your favourite matches in no time!

Casino games at Funbet

If you ever find yourself getting bored with the sports betting section, you can always check out Funbet Casino. Similar to the likes of Betway and Casumo, there is an online casino that you can enjoy at Funbet.

From poker, slot machines, and blackjack to live casino games with pretty dealers, you can do it all and then some more. It may take a few moments to load on your phone but it’s worth it.

Live games

The live casino at Funbet is indeed quite lively – games like roulette, monopoly, craps, baccarat, sic bo, poker, and of course, the famous blackjack is among the several table games that you can play in their live casino. 

Funbet Live Casino Roulette

Slots

Can you imagine an online casino without any video slots? Neither can we! That’s why we were super pleased to see that Funbet has over 1,000 slots available and counting! You can filter them by alphabetical order, popularity, or the freshness of it. Alternately, you can also filter it by slot providers.

Customer support

Customer support is one segment where we feel Funbet can make themselves more appealing. Perhaps, it is because they are still new in the market but by the looks of it, we could not find any live chat option available on the desktop site.

This is a big contrast to what they have mentioned on their platform, which says, “via Livechat, click the chat button visible on every page.” While this is available 24/7, it is the case only on the mobile version.

Funbet Live Chatting Option Mobile Version

Mentioned below are a few ways you can contact Funbet

You can also use your Funbet profile inbox to raise issues and address them to the respective departments

Contact Funbet Customer Support by using your inbox feature.

Response time

Mentioned below are the response times of Funbet customer support for various channels:

Contact Method Response Time
Email 24-48 hours
Phone 10 minutes on hold
Live Chat 1 minute in queue
Account inbox Up to 48 hours and more

In comparison to the big guns in the industry, this is a bit of a letdown. The others out there have exhaustive FAQ sections, 24/7 live support, and a quick response time. Maybe with time, we will expect a swift from Funbet turnaround in this department too.

Responsible gambling

At Bet India, we have always pushed and supported responsible gambling. It makes us happy to see the same at Funbet too.

Players can set their own limitations to deposit and daily turnover from sports and casinos. You can also make use of their reality check feature which pops up on your screen and tells you when you have logged on to the betting site for the specified amount of time.

Responsible Gambling Measures at Funbet are Superior to many other online betting sites

Moreover, if you ever find yourself losing control of your gambling habits, you can reach out to their dedicated customer support to assist you with this. You also have the option to Self-Exclusion, where you willingly ask the operator to suspend your betting account for the mentioned time-frame.

We find these stringent measures to be absolutely in line with what other big players in the industry are doing. If anything, Funbet may be doing it better and more responsibly. A 10/10 in our books!

Why Funbet should be on your list

  • It is perfectly safe to bet at
  • Accepts Indian customers and Indian payment methods like UPI
  • Good selection of cricket and football betting markets
  • Has a decent live casino offering
  • Massive welcome bonus
  • Committed to responsible gambling
  • Simple layout, easy navigation

Yes, there may be some areas where Funbet doesn’t quite fit right. Still, given its superiority and prowess in the other departments, it gets our seal of approval.

So, what are you waiting for? Join Funbet today and get your betting journey off to a solid start!
