Our BetShah Review Canada 2021
BetShah Canada Review - Scam or Legit? GamblingGuy Tests 2021
With the vast number of online casino operators, it can be hard to tell apart. As soon as we started this BetShah review and the ‘King of Kings’ welcomed us to the site, it was evident this operator was different.
The question was, though – would this be a good or a bad thing? From the outset, we found that although this site offers all the things you would find with other online casino operators, it does them with character and quirkiness. This set the operator apart, but we needed to discover if BetShah was all style and no content. Oh, and did we mention that there’s a fantastic online casino bonus for you to pick up? Not a fan of casinos, and would prefer to be betting on your favourite soccer match? Then there’s also a very generous BetShah sports offer you won’t want to miss.
BetShah: Pros & Cons
- Over 4,000 different slots from leading software companies
- Welcome bonuses and regular promotions for account holders
- Tournaments for regular slots players to win prizes
- You can play slots in ‘practice’ mode without being a member
- BetShah app available for Android and iOS, to play on the move
- Membership limited to certain countries
It is almost a given these days that an online operator will offer a welcome bonus. While carrying out this BetShah review, we found the operator carries welcome bonuses for both BetShah sportsbook and BetShah casino. The sportsbook offers you up to $150 bonus. It’s a matched deposit bonus that effectively doubles your first deposit of $15 or more by 100%. You will need to play through the bonus amount 15 times, not including any handicap or win no-bet wagers.
The casino offer looks the better deal and will basically match your first deposits by 100% up to $1,500. With this more BetShah bonus, the wagering requirements are somewhat larger at 60x. Just remember that you need to deposit at least $15 to get this deal.
100% up to 1500$
+ 100 Free Spins
100% up to 150$
50% up to 112.5$
25% up to 112.5$
As noted previously, BetShah has a unique look that separates it from the many alternative operators out there. However, the uniqueness of the ‘Shah’ character that you’ll find everywhere, and his flowery language, is not achieved at the expense of site usability.
The sportsbook is as easy to navigate as you would hope, with a simple selection process for the sport, then the event, and all of the available markets displayed in just a few clicks.
The casino is equally simple to navigate, with the games displayed all at once – or by type when selecting the appropriate tab. The option to either play or practice is clearly defined and easy to understand.
This is typical of the way the operator has put the whole thing together. Overall, the site is graphically pleasing, like the one we rated highly in our Betway review, but this is not at the expense of usability, as we found all areas quick to load during this BetShah review.
Making your first deposit is easy with many deposit and withdrawal methods available.
We found this to be another positive as players are always concerned about making deposits but not as concerned as they are when it comes to withdrawing funds. In this BetShah review Canada, we found that this operator gives the player more options than others, including cryptocurrency.
The exact payment methods will vary according to country, but you should have a choice of ecoPayz, Neteller, Perfect Money, Skrill, Visa, Mastercard, Yandex, Qiwi, Alfa-Click, Jeton, Neosurf, Paysafecard, and importantly Bitcoin for making a BetShah deposit. You should be able to use any of these methods without excluding yourself from any of the welcome bonuses available.
You have the option of ecoPayz, Neteller, Perfect Money, Skrill, Visa, Mastercard, Yandex, Qiwi, Jeton, and Bitcoin for withdrawals with a minimum withdrawal of $10. The BetShah withdrawal time is also as expected and should be complete within 72 hours, although 24 hours is more usual.
One area where many operators fall down is customer service, with the worry for players that when a problem occurs, especially with a withdrawal, the operator will go silent.
While carrying out our BetShah review, we discovered that this wouldn’t be the case here, as the operator has 24/7 chat available and email for less urgent or more complicated inquiries. This is very similar to what we found in our Unibet Casino Review Canada and seems to be the preferred setup for reputable operators. These methods are free (there is no expensive premium rate phone line to ring) with up to 24 hrs to receive a reply via mail, and live chat being almost instantaneous.
Our BetShah review found the site supports six languages in total, but the important boxes ticked here as far as this review is concerned are English and French. This attention to customer service and the ease with which you can contact them could be why we could not find any significantly bad feedback online and no instances of players posting about a BetShah scam or and reports of BetShah fraud.
BetShah Casino is a relatively new operator and is owned and run by Radon. This BetShah review found that the operator is licensed by the Government of Curacao and is a private company not listed on the stock exchange. Despite being a relatively new operator, it holds an ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certificate on Information Security which points to your personal and financial data being safe.
Transactions are all age verified, and with your passport a necessary document for the registration process, the chances of a minor being able to use the site is very slim. As a new operator, we did not expect to find certification from GamCare or eCogra for BetShah, or for the operator to have won any awards so far.
It is not unusual for a new operator and we do not consider it to be a negative at this stage.
During this BetShah review, we found there is no specific VIP program. However, we found that it was not a deal-breaker with the other offers available every week and month.
In addition to the welcome bonus, there are several benefits for players who return regularly. We were impressed that the casino section holds tournaments for players with cash prizes for winners. There is no registration fee for these tournaments, and players are automatically entered once they place a bet on one of the eligible games. The players will gain points as they play, and the top positions on the leaderboard that the end (we found most lasted two weeks) would get a share of the cash pool.
For players who do not wish to enter the tournaments, there are weekly 5% cashback bonuses for slots and free spins on a Monday for those who played at the weekend. We found this combination of extra bonuses offered more across the entire customer base than a VIP Program.
BetShah sets itself apart from other operators with a unique approach and the ‘King of Kings’ character everywhere you look. Our initial worry that this might be all the operator had to offer, and it might be a show to cover up some average offers and poor service.
However, during our BetShah test, we found attractive welcome offers, a site that is easy to find your way around, repeat offers, and regular tournaments for return visitors. There are many deposit and withdrawal methods (including crypto) and fast and efficient customer service – all adding up to being a contender for being the best online casino Canada has to offer, and one of the most positive experiences we at Gamblingguy have had with a casino operator.
