MALINASPORTS REVIEW - our experience and evaluation

Reading time: 5 Minutes

MalinaSports

In our MalinaSports review we present our personal experience that we could gather on this bookmaker. MalinaSports belongs to the Tranello group and has been on the market as a bookmaker since 2016. So, this bookmaker from Cyprus ranks among the youngest competitors on the market and and is not yet well known especially in the German speaking world. We want to change this with our MalinaSports review, where we go into relevant categories like betting service, odds or live bets, which have become an important item of the betting market. We also examined the reliability of this bookmaker carefully, and we can say that the young bookmaker with a license from the Caribbean island Curacao does not show any weakness in this aspect. The betting bonus for new customers is scrutinized as well, because advertising campaigns for new customers are particularly important for bookmaker – rookies. For further information on MalinaSports we present our experience with this young bookmaker in the following paragraphs.

Betting service – the newcomer performs well in our MalinaSports test

In this category of our bookmaker evaluation we examine the depth of the offer as well as the offered range of sports and leagues and analyse the number of betting markets. At the time of our research we found 27 different categories respectively sports on MalinaSports, which is a remarkable number for a young bookmaker. Besides popular sports like soccer, ice hockey, tennis basketball and American football you can also bet on more exotic sports like water polo, pesapallo (a Finnish baseball interpretation) or futsal on MalinaSports. There is also a big virtual sports section on MalinaSports. Not surprising, the most betting possibilities are offered for king soccer. You can choose between prestigious leagues like German Bundesliga, Premier League, La Liga or Champions League but also less renowned leagues of smaller associations like Peru, Senegal or Thailand. At this point we`d like to mention that it`s also possible to bet on amateur sports, like the Oberliga in Germany. The depth of the offer is really remarkable for a young bookmaker like MalinaSports: for selective matches of the international top-level soccer we have found about 68 betting possibilities. For games of smaller leagues like the Norwegian Elite series there is still a respectable number of more than 400 betting markets??? on offer. In our test we had to deduct points because we couldn`t find any offer for E-sports, though. This sport that is only practices by a few has become more important and more popular for the last few years and it`s not surprising that most bookmakers have reacted with a respective extension of their offer. It´s a pity especially for a young bookmaker like MalinaSports that this area is not yet given the appropriate attention, and we therefore had to deduct some points in our test. But this shortcoming cannot mar the positive experience we had. MalinaSports was awarded 17/20 points and achieved a good result in the upper third of our bookmaker test in this category.

Betting odds – our experience testifies decent odds

With a young bookmaker like MalinaSports good odds from the get-go can´t be taken for granted – the competition from the market leaders is mostly too strong. It´s all the more amazing that MalinaSports offers payment keys that are absolutely able to compete – they level off a bit above the average. With renowned events you can expect payment keys of about 95%, which isn´t an absolute top value but is a respectable result for a new bookmaker like MalinaSports and is no reason for a deduction of points in our bookmaker test. In less famous leagues like the Norwegian Elite series the payment key falls to 92-93%, though, and this costs some points in our MalinaSports test. With other sports than soccer you have to expect a drop of the odds, as well. The odds that MalinaSports offer are not enough for an absolute top ranking, but the young bookmaker can stand out a bit against other bookmaker – rookies in this category. We award 16/20 points for the ambitious, but not yet completely convincing offer of odds.

The betting odds on MalinaSports can compete in any case!

Live betting – our MalinaSports test shows an ambitious programme with little flaws

Betting possibilities on current events and in real – time saw a downright boom in the last couple of years. For this reason we give this category the proper attention in our bookmaker test. Our experiences with the section of live bets of MalinaSports are mainly positive: the sports that are offered for live betting provide everything you desire - from popular soccer and tennis to basketball, futsal, cricket, squash or beach volleyball, our review showed a wide choice. In the matter of betting markets the bookmaker, that was founded in 2016, can also score with a remarkable offer that cannot be taken for granted with a bookmaker – newcomer. There is not much to criticize with the depth and breadth of the offer. It takes some time to get used to the layout of the live betting section, though: the choice of colours is poor in contrast and does not contribute to the clarity, even though the site is basically designed intuitively. In our MalinaSports review points are deducted for this fact. There is a live animation for certain events that should provide a real-time feeling together with the statistics that are presented in this context. Live streams are not offered on MalinaSports according to our experience. Changes of the odds are displayed with red and green arrows that point downwards respectively upwards. As a special feature we would like to point out the function “multiview” which can be found beside the categories “event” and “overview”. With the help of this feature you can choose several events so that only those events that are of interest to you are shown. All in all there is still some room for improvement in the section of live betting, but at the end of the day there is not much to be criticized in this category of our MalinaSports test: 7/10 points.

Betting bonus – exciting welcome offer with a high maximum amount

User friendliness – modern website with an unconventional choice of colours

This category of our bookmaker test analyses the web presence – the desktop version as well as the mobile version. When we first visited the desktop site of MalinaSports, we immediately noticed the unconventional colour selection. It didn´t make a good impression in our test because the result is poor in contrast. The design and the structure of the website are quite modern and well thought-out, but one needs several seconds to find one´s way around. At the top of the site you find the big sectors like “prematch”, “live betting”, virtual”, “casino” and “live casino”. On the left side there are two columns. The column on the far left can be used for organizational features like deposit and cash-out or you can apply for your betting account. A link to the main site can be found as well, so that you can return there quickly and simply. The second column is reserved for the presentation of the offered sports. With only one click you get to the desired events and leagues, which are then shown in the middle of the website. Live betting, various offers and a preview of coming events are usually displayed in this area. On the right side you can find a betting ticket with integrated cash-out function. At the bottom of the site organizational hints and more information about the bookmaker can be found. For users of mobile devices, we could only find a web app respectively mobile version. There is no installable app available as yet. There is some need to catch up in this area. Our experience with the mobile version was generally good, but the unfavorable choice of colour and contrast has an even worse effect on a smaller screen. All in all, the web presence of MalinaSports can be evaluated quite positively. With a skillful selection of contrast, the clarity could be improved, though. Points are deducted because there is no installable app available. This category is awarded 7/10 points in our MalinaSports test.

Customer service – few contact opportunities are the reason for a deduction of points

When it comes to customer service, the new bookmaker relies on a slimmed-down programme: in our experience there is only a live-chat and an e-mail address. A FAQ area is available for questions to be asked first. MalinaSports don´t offer a telephone number or more modern ways of communication like Skype, Facebook or Twitter, which is why points are deducted in our bookmaker test. The live-chat is quite helpful and competent, but that does not change the fact that there is still some need to catch up in this area as well. We couldn´t award more than 6/10 points in our MalinaSports test.

Respectability – MalinaSports relies on a license from Curacao

MalinaSports get their license for the distribution of sports bets from the Caribbean island Curacao. Therefore, there are no doubts about the young bookmaker´s reliability. Moreover, we could find references and links to organizations that can be contacted with gambling problems on the website of this new bookmaker. We couldn´t detect any partnerships with or sponsoring by renowned clubs. But still there is doubt about the reliability of this bookmaker, so that we can award the maximum score in this category: 10/10.

Payment methods – our review shows a respectable choice

The offer of accepted payment methods can be viewed only after the registration is complete. This limitation is no sign of transparency, which is why we have to deduct points beforehand in our MalinaSports test. There is a reasonable choice of payment methods – Neteller, Skrill, paysafecard, Bitcoin, bank transfer, Klarna, Boletol, YandexMoney, Qiwi and credit cards (Visa, Mastercard) can be used. Our experience with MalinaSports shows that transactions are usually handled quickly and without problems. On balance, the young bookmaker was not very convincing in this category and was awarded only 7/10 points, which is relatively poor.

Betting tax

For betters from Germany there is always the delicate question of the betting tax that is due with the respective bookmakers. We have good news in our MalinaSports test on this topic: the young bookmaker from Cyprus pays the whole betting tax himself and doesn´t put it on his customers whatsoever. This approach is really laudable and ensures a good experience in our MalinaSports test.

Conclusion: MalinaSports performs well in our test in spite of a lack of experience

MalinaSports has been on the betting market for only a few years, but provides an interesting overall package in our test, that is convincing in some points. Especially the betting service, the odds and the live betting sections made a good impression in our MalinaSports test. The web performance seems to be ambitious and professional, apart from the choice of colours and contrast, that needs getting used to. If MalinaSports manages to improve the categories of payment methods and customer service, the bookmaker rookie from Cyprus could make some competitors sweat considerably. In the overall evaluation in our test, MalinaSports is mid-table. We recommend to keep this young bookmaker in mind in any case.
