Founded back in 2013, Premier Punt started out as a Fantasy Football website. Its owner and founder, John Gordon, started Premier Punt as a hobby and side project to his full-time day job in the oil industry. Since this time, however, Premier Punt has grown to become a reputable sportsbook with a loyal legion of players.
Whilst it is no exaggeration to say that Premier Punt doesn’t come anywhere near big names and industry giants like bet365, Ladbrokes, and William Hill, that’s not to say this smaller sportsbook isn’t worth looking at. And, in a few years’ time, Premier Punt may well become a big name in its own right—it is certainly on the right tracks.
When Premier Punt took the jump and changed its direction from being a fantasy football website to becoming a fully-fledged sportsbook, its operators the necessary steps to ensure that the sportsbook meets all licencing and regulatory requirements.
As such, Premier Punt is regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. This means that it is a safe and secure environment where all players’ personal information is safe and secure.
Premier Punt Markets & Betting Options
Premier Punt has a decent range of markets and betting options, something that is not too often seen with smaller sportsbooks and betting brands.
You can choose from a wide range of sports that include all the basics—football, tennis, and horse racing—and more obscure and ‘interesting’ markets such as speedway and snooker. Whilst there are not as many markets as you may find with the bigger names, there is still plenty of choice that cover both sports and specials.Back to top ↑
Premier Punt Odds Quality
When compared across the whole range of online sportsbooks, Premier Punt’s odds are quite average. When you take into account that Premier Punt began as nothing more than a fantasy football website, however, you can appreciate how far it has come in such a little amount of time by looking at available odds contextually.
One thing to note is that the odds on some of the lower league football markets are slower to update and respond to market changes. This gives experienced punters some arbitrage opportunities here or there.Back to top ↑
Premier Punt Live Betting & Streaming Options
What Premier Punt may lack for in size it more than makes up for with its live betting functionality—live betting options here are very good and are a major bonus for players.
By clicking the ‘In Play’ tab found at the top of the website’s navigation, you will be taken to the In-Play Betting page where you will be able to see all of the live betting markets of events that are currently taking place. There is also a live schedule where you can see what’s coming up in the near future.
Unfortunately, Premier Punt does not offer any live streaming options at the time of writing. This is where the sportsbook’s size fails it; live streaming is very expensive, and it is only the larger sportsbooks that can afford to offer it.Back to top ↑
Premier Punt Mobile Betting
As you may expect with one of the ‘smaller’ sportsbooks, Premier Punt does not, at the time of writing, have its own dedicated betting app. This means that if you wish to bet using your mobile or tablet device, you must open up your device’s web browser and visit the Premier Punt website directly.
However, this does not detract from your experience. This is because Premier Punt’s website has been designed with mobile use in mind; it is completely responsive, quick, and of a very high standard with all the same features as the desktop-based site.
Still, though, it would be fantastic if Premier Punt did have an app because some players prefer this.Back to top ↑
Premier Punt Banking
Premier Punt makes banking simple by only offering a few different payment methods. At the time of writing, Premier Punt accepts:
When it comes to withdrawing your winnings, Premier Punt processes these relatively quickly. Just like with other bookies, withdrawals to e-wallets (e.g. PayPal and NETeller) get to you much quicker than those to debit cards, typically in less than 24 hours. Debit cards withdrawals can take a few business days.Back to top ↑
