Summary : very slow
Brazilian League Betting
I used Sportingbet to try and place a bet on the Sao Paolo game last night. The site overall is well designed and pretty easy to use, and they allow in-play betting which I like to do especially for the South American leagues due to the time differences. However, I had a lot of trouble with the betting slip, which was loading very slow and often got stuck while loading or when I tried to submit my bet.
I closed and reopened my browser several times and even restarted my computer, but the problem was persisting for over 25 minutes before I finally gave up and went to another site. On this site the speed and loading were perfect, and so I know that the problem wasn’t with my computer but rather with this Sportinbet’s servers or back office, really a shame. I had read excellent reviews of this site before and I was really disappointed that this happened.
There were no other technical difficulties on my computer and I have placed bets using the same computer on other sites and never had a technical issue like this. I found it very off putting and I doubt if I’ll be back to bet on this site again. The speed and smooth flow of betting is extremely important to me, especially when it comes to in play betting, and I don’t want to deal with this frustration any more. Too bad, because I had very high expectations of this site, as it’s been around for a long time and I had been planning on using it for quite a while. I’ve already told some friends about this and some of them said they had had the same problem with this site or heard similar stories from others. If this is a pattern, I hope they are working hard to fix it, or they will end up with no customers very soon!
