Buff.bet Casino & Sportsbook Review – Recommended!
Buff.bet is a primarily esports betting site with sports, slots and live casino also available in the house. The website is eager to become the new face of cryptocurrency esports and sports betting. Buff.bet highlights itself among the other bookmakers with a user-friendly interface, numerous deposit/withdrawal methods, and wide sportsbook with a huge variety of live markets for both major and minor esports tournaments.
Buff.bet has hit the esports betting scene with the name buff88 back in 2017, but was soon renamed to Buff.bet as it is nowadays. The website is operating under the Galaxy Group Ltd. and has a valid license issued by the Government of Curacao (#365/ JAZ).
The website focuses on creating a user-friendly interface using the combination of white text and dark background. For fast and simple navigation, they have separate tabs for:

Then you are offered to make a deposit with a welcome bonus to start playing. The deposits methods differ depending on the country, however, from the website footer, we can see that they accept the most popular payment methods like credit/debit card, Skrill, ecoPayz and lots of minor payment systems available for different regions. After you deposit you may start rollover your bonus with esports and sports betting.
The key website feature is live esports betting options which we found the most exciting. Moreover, Buff.bet has twitch broadcasting of esports events, with Twitch player nicely integrated so that you can see the game and odds movement on one screen. While making bets you can also win a jackpot that has 3 tiers – Silver, Gold and Platinum. The bets are settled as fast as possible, however, while waiting for your winnings the website offers to jump into slots or live casino games.

Buff.bet Casino Games
Buff.bet has a well-designed casino page with plenty of slots providers such as NetEnt, Microgaming, Betsoft, Habanero, Evoplay, etc. While experiencing the casino, we have enjoyed a nice feature on the left side of the screen. They offer to add games to Favorites, and what’s more important, there is a list of recently played games, which allowed us to return to the game where we had a big win yesterday.
The Buff.bet list of popular slots games include Game of Thrones by Microgaming, RockStar by Bestsoft, Fortune Dogs by Habanero and 106 other world’s most popular games. However, the one we enjoyed the most was Dead or Alive by NetEnt, where we hit a big win within just 100 spins! We also tried some Habanero games with mobile while getting home from work. No nice wins sadly, but all works fine. They also have the line with jackpot games, which is updated automatically.
Live Casino is powered by Ezugi which is a major provider for most of the sites. Therefore, fair play and payout rates are also standard. Ezugi has live dealers active 24/7, so that we could enjoy Blackjack even at the deep deep night.
The payment methods differ depending on the country. Although Buff.bet is said to offer Skrill, credit/debit card and ecoPayz payment methods, we have not found them in available top-up methods list. However, we can deposit with the payment systems that are popular in my country and that is even better. The deposits come fast and Buff.bet took no charges from my deposits and withdrawals. The website also offers to use cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum. However, for that, you would have to create a new account and ask in support chat to close your current one.
The withdrawals proceed to the same payment method from which the players make a deposit. Our withdrawal request was accepted within 2 hours, which is around standard for the bookmaker companies. The cashout time after it was accepted took around 5 minutes for the funds to appear on our balance.
However, to make a withdrawal we had to verify our account. So that, we went for manage account tab and downloaded the photo of ID, utilities bill and screenshot from personal cabinet of our online wallet that we deposited with. For the first time, we received an error because it was bigger than 2 MB, so that we reduced its size with Paint and it went through. They say that the verification process takes up to 24 hours, but our profile was verified within an hour.
The website does not allow sending the docs via e-mail; everything should be done through player’s profile for safety & security. Although, Buff.bet guarantees privacy & confidentiality, we would recommend you to cover some important info on your docs, such as several numbers of your ID or 8 middle numbers of your credit/debit card.
Buff.bet live-chat support service work from 07:00 till 01:00 CET. Moreover, there is no queue as on other betting websites, so that the support agent connects to chat within a minute. The support agents speak only English and Russian, however, they use advanced machine translation tools, so that you can ask anything you want in your native language.
However, requests with the highest importance and requests, that require a longer time to carry on, are proceed via email ([email protected]). The support agent/supervisor answers to an email within 1-24 hours. All Buff.bet live chat requests are powered by LiveChat where each player may rate the chatting experience.
Up till March 2020, Buff.bet support service has 5/5 excellent service rank based on 380 ratings.
Buff.bet is primarily esports bookmaker that also offers sportsbook, casino and live casino with nice welcome bonuses for novice players and decent promotions for long-term users. However, it is live esports betting that highlights Buff.bet among the other bookmakers. They cover a huge range of esports disciplines with live betting available for both major and minor events.
The biggest disadvantage for esports live betting lovers is the absence of Cash-Out (take back money while the bet is still in progress). We informed the support about that issue, let’s hope they will add this option soon. Also, the sports betting fans would not find as big pre-match and live sportsbook as the sports bookmakers offer, however, if you are not fond of statistics and some crazy bets like a total number of outs in a football match, you will always find something to bet on there.
We rate Buff.bet 9.2/10, because we had a nice experience with this website, everything works fine, but they still have a lot of room to grow. We would return to this website soon to see if they improved the mobile version and added cash-out and to talk to these cute support agents, of course. Good luck!
