Below are some examples of how 1xBet’s online sports betting section looks like.
The website is clearly divided into several sections, so you aren’t going to end up in the wrong place by accident. If you go to the sports betting part of 1xBet you will find a handy navigation menu, which will allow you to quickly switch between different sports and see how many games are currently available. Once you open a given sport you will list of games, starting with the most popular ones and next to each game you will see the overall number of currently open markets. The above is applicable to both: pre-match and in-play.
The in-play section will show you an animated scoreboard, which will display everything that is happening in the game right now. In addition to that you also have a full timeline of the game, where you can see everything that has happened earlier with exact timestamps of each action. You can also have a live stream of a game running at the same as you are betting.
Finally, we can have a quick look at the betslip – there is not much to mention here, all basic functionality is present and generally it has a fairly generic look, which in this case is likely a good thing.
