Created in summer 2010, Genybet was previously a company entirely devoted to horse racing betting. A subsidiary of the Pari Turf group, GenyBet therefore has particular importance in the world of horse racing.
However, thanks to recognized qualities, GenyBet has extended its offer to sports betting, and this since 2013.
Although the sporting offer is less attractive than that of horse racing, GenyBet remains generally a good site, with many advantages to discover.
Before placing your bets on the site or making a deposit, you must open a player account. The registration process has 3 main steps. Here’s how to do it:
• Enter personal information and your login credentials
• Fill in your bank details
• Set your game limits
The validation of your account is not compulsory during registration. However, you will have 31 days to send your RIB and a copy of your ID to customer service to activate your account. The procedure for opening an account is similar to that of ParionsSport (more details), except that the sending of supporting documents can be done later.
It takes a long time to open a Genybet account: in addition to personal information, you must enter your bank details and set your playing limits before your transitional account is opened.
Genybet welcome bonus: up to € 250 free for new players
The welcome offer is a key point in attracting players. The more generous it is, the more the registrants will have the chance to play for free. The site offers two bonuses that can be combined with newcomers:
• Turf: + 25% on your 1st deposit up to € 200
• Sport: 1st bet reimbursed up to € 50
The bonus that will be offered to you will be a bonus that you will necessarily have to replay. It can be used on any type of sports betting (combined, grids, live, single). The Genybet Sport bonus is one of the lowest on the market. France Pari also offers a € 50 cashback on your first tip, but also offers other bonuses, notably on the FP
Manager or the grids.
The offer of Genybet is to be put on the same level as that of Betstars, which refunds the 1st bet up to 50 €, but which offers in addition 2 forecasts of 10 € (see here). Even if these 2 bets will only be offered to you after having bet a minimum amount, it is still better than nothing. The Genybet registration bonus is far from competitive. It is not very difficult to obtain, but the amount of € 50 is pale next to that of other bookmakers.
Final activation of your account: When you register, you have a 30-day “temporary” account. To permanently activate your account and benefit from the advantages of the second part of your welcome bonus (50% of the amount of your 1st bet in free bets), you must send us your supporting documents: Part Identity + RIB Bank. After verifying your documents with our services, you will receive an activation code sent to the postal address indicated during registration that you must enter on our website in order to definitively activate your account.
Thus, you can accumulate a maximum of 100 free bets, or 50 euros for the first bet., And 50 € within 24 hours after confirming your account. The size of your bonus depends on the amount of your first sports bet, not on your deposit. If your bet is canceled, you must replace the new sports bet in order to benefit from the welcome bonus. When you play and win free bets, only your net income is credited to your main account. Then you can make free bets on all sporting events using the “Play Free Bet” feature.
Genybet currently offers a wide range of promotional offers. In addition to the Cash Out offer as an advertising offer, Betland offers a bonus of up to 250% on placed bets on winning batteries called “Yafun-Yafun”. The winning increase applies to bets on drives with 5 or more options, with individual odds of 1.2 or more.
Bet on Genybet: the game offer and the odds on the poster
Important point: In October 2016, a shareholder of the company operating the Genybet.fr site became the manager of a French professional football club. They are Jacques-Henri Eyraud, president of the Marseille Olympique club (more details). These two functions being incompatible according to French football regulations, Genybet no longer offers sports betting on the following competitions:
• Ligue 2
• Champions Trophy
• Europa League
• Note that if OM qualify for the Champions League, Genybet will no longer offer bets on this competition.
Game formulas offered by the Genybet betting site
Special formulas are now an integral part of the bookmakers’ gaming offer. If some of them are struggling to bring something new (we think of PMU with its Turfoot grids or its Betmachine), others are content to align themselves with the competition, and this in order not to lose a significant part of player. The genybet site on the other hand, does not seem to have taken the bandwagon. In terms of special formulas, there is almost nothing to get your teeth into: no cash out, no boosted handset, no coaching game. There are only sports betting grids (find out more).
As for ad hoc promotions, they mostly concern horse racing. If you are looking to win a few more euros on Roland Garros or the Champions League, you may be disappointed. Genybet is one of the only sites approved by ARJEL to only offer grids outside of its betting offer. So it’s hard to hope to attract players with such an offer.
Like most bookies on the market, Genybet lets you bet live. On the other hand, to follow the matches, you will only have a Live Tracker, accompanied by a score tracking. There is no dedicated sports streaming on the site. There is a “Live” function that allows you to watch events live, but it only affects the Turf.
Difficult to have a positive opinion on a betting site that does not currently offer live streaming. Not only does this make it less user-friendly than its competitors, and live betting enthusiasts will suffer from the lack of this feature.
Betland offers odds on a limited number of sports bets – 12.
The betting site offers bets on popular sports betting such as football, tennis and basketball, as well as on unique markets such as darts, snooker and cycling. This ensures that players of all sports tastes are satisfied and they will have the opportunity to choose bets of their choice.
The minimum amount that you can bet on a sports market bet is based on 100 NGN, while the maximum amount that you can bet on a sports betting market depends on the sport based on the market you have chosen, the number of options you have made , and the main odds of doing the same.
Genybet offers an iOS and Android application for betting from your laptop or tablet. Like the one proposed by Winamax (see here), it supports two different markets, turf and sport. You will not have to go from one to the other if you ever want to bet on horse racing.
The Genybet application gives you access to all of the site’s resources: prematch / live betting, statistical database on meetings, promotions implemented by the site. Another positive point: the Touch ID is supported. You can therefore identify yourself using your fingerprint. Regarding mobile gaming, our opinion is rather positive. The app is ergonomic and comprehensive, although it suffers from the lack of site diversity.
Deposits and withdrawals
Deposits are possible from € 5 by bank card (Visa, Mastercard, Carte Bleue, e-Carte Bleue), bank transfer or Paysafecard. They are capped at € 5,000 for bank cards and € 1,000 for Paysafecard. Regarding withdrawals, the threshold is set at € 10. The funds will be transferred by bank transfer. Payment of winnings can only be made if your account is definitively activated, as is the case for all bookmakers approved by ARJEL.
Our opinion on financial transactions is mixed. The € 5 deposit threshold is clearly a good point, but the lack of support for electronic wallets is a major handicap for many players.

With genybet, it’s impossible to have a quick response in the event of a problem: there is no telephone line or direct messaging. To get an answer, you will have to be satisfied with the 24 hour delay. We are therefore quite disappointed from this point of view.
Our general opinion on Genybet.fr
Let’s not be afraid of words: Genybet is content with the minimum. And that’s not enough, especially in an industry where the biggest bookies are doing their best to bring something new and get the most out of technology. On genybet, there is no cash out, no boosted handset, no Live Streaming, no Live chat, and no support for electronic wallets. To make matters worse, the sign-up bonus is very average. It must be admitted that it does a lot all the same. If you are a player looking for something new, go to another site.
That said, if you are a beginner bettor or on a budget, you will have fun on Genybet. The 1N2 ratings are quite good compared to other sites. If you bet for example on the outcome of a match, you will win as much as on other betting sites. Second strong point: deposits are accepted from € 5. At most other bookmakers, the limit is € 10. This could make a difference for some players who do not have a huge budget. Finally, the mobile app is pretty well done. Either it lacks content, but Genybet has made an effort to ensure that players used to betting on smartphones have a pleasant gaming experience.
Genybet will easily satisfy neophytes, but will have difficulty convincing experienced or picky bettors. Without cash out, live stream, live messaging or frequent ad hoc promotions, it’s hard to find your way around when you have a little experience.
