ComeOn! Sportsbook Review Summary
ComeOn! is a relatively new sportsbook, having being set up in 2010. The name itself is probably one of the coolest sportsbook names and one of the few companies it seems who had some initiative to move away from the safer option of putting the word “bet” in their brand name!
ComeOn! have seen huge growth in the UK market since then which is ridiculously competitive and in 2016, they were acquired by Swedish Online Casino kingpins Cherry AB. Cherry AB reportedly spent €280 million on the acquisition, which is an amazing amount considering the company was only in existence 6 years.
Cherry AB has now assumed ComeOn!’s brand name and are expecting large growth in the UK and Irish markets but also in their home Scandinavian markets where the use of ComeOn!s innovative name, company ethos and product offerings will be a driver of renewed growth there.
The main positives we see with ComeOn! compared to their more experienced competitors is the ease of use of the website along with the lack of clutter on their website which allows for the everyday punter to get their bets on without any fuss and they also have one of the best player rewards schemes currently on the market. To be honest, we do not understand why more sportsbooks do not offer a loyalty points system. It worked in the online poker industry and surely is a no-brainer for the sports betting industry too.
The one major gripe with ComeOn! is the lack of telephone support, but considering most people in this day and age prefer using messaging services like WhatsApp and Skype, they are used to just dealing with live chat and email type support.
The following review will cover all the positive and negative aspects of ComeOn! sportsbook and give it a final rating.

Live Streaming Review
If you are situated in Sweden, Norway or Finland, you can watch live streaming on ComeOn! However, this is no comfort to UK or Irish customers. Again this is one of the best and worst things about ComeOn as it streamlines the whole betting process and removes all clutter, however, some people like to watch what they bet on. I am sure this is something that they are working on and this would add some extra value to the website. Personally, it does not bother us, as we like to get our bets on quick, and then carry on with the rest of our lives, or simply watch the event on TV.
Site Design Review
This is where we really think ComeOn! have excelled. The design is one of the “cooler” designs we have seen in a long time. We do not like to throw around the word “cool” too often, but this is when it simply makes sense to do so. Their brand colours, font and background images set the scene nicely for a pleasant betting experience.
The sportsbook is basic but does exactly what it needs to do. My only gripe is that there is no quick find icon for horse racing. However, you can easily find it on the left-hand sidebar.
The withdrawal speeds fall in line with the average withdrawal speeds of all igaming companies.
Payout time depending on payment method:

Customer Service Review
ComeOn! is one of the only igaming companies we know that has staff numbers of greater than 400, that do not offer customer support via telephone. This either means two things. 1) Their product and processes are perfected that they do not receive many requests or complaints 2) They do not like to talk to people!
Thankfully, it seems like it is point 1 above. We tested out their live chat service and we were answered within 4 mins on a busy Sunday afternoon during the premier league football matches. The support agents were knowledgeable and respectful. They also offer email support as well as live chat, and while it may seem strange not to have phone support, we think this may be the way forward. Who likes waiting around on the phone, when you can go about your work and have the live chat open in the background of your computer or smartphone.
This is where we really like ComeOn!’s offering. They offer a fantastic rewards program, called the ComeOn! Shop. For every action you take on the website, you earn points. Points can then be redeemed for prizes, such as free spins, free bets or big reload bonuses. As you can see below, while reviewing the site, we already built up 850 points just by signing up and logging in a few times. The more active you are on the site, the more points you can earn and then exchange for free bets. I wish all sportsbooks offered something like this. Instead of having to wait for a company’s bonus manager to issue you a bonus once every 6 months, you can at least how much more points you need before your next free bet is due.
Free Bet Club
Join the club and get up to a £25 Free Bet every week. All you need to do is opt-in and place combo bets with min odds 2/1 to rise up through the various levels, for a scrumptious Free Bet every week.
We like ComeOn! as its a clean and user-friendly interface. It is fast to load and to place a bet. It covers all your favourite sports and includes live betting as well as regular betting. If you like casino games, you also have a host of game options to choose from. We especially like their points reward system and think all sportsbooks should introduce something similar.
