You can get hold of the reps at GTbets through live chat, telephone support (1-800-509-4847) and email. The site’s email support is split into:
Each of the above is available 24/7. The operator provides a list of Frequently Asked Questions that covers general queries like how to claim a bonus, banking, security, private policy, how to place a bet and so forth. In general support is good. It takes a while before their live operators show up and email support is a bit slow at times. If you have a lot of questions, the best way is the toll-free telephone number.
You know the quote, “every saint has a past.” GTbets had a rocky start with a few now-defunct sportsbooks, but they gloriously redeemed themselves by paying out $45,000 in backed payments and cleaned up their business model. Your data is protected by SSL encryption and each casino game’s outcome is determined by a Random Number Generator.
GTbets is a good choice for medium bettors and to newbies, but if you are a high roller then Bovada is the way to go. There are a few areas the live betting site can improve. For example, it can drop the charge for an extra Bitcoin withdrawal. And, if you use an e-wallets as a deposit option; you can’t withdraw your winnings with it which is ‘meh’. Other than this, GTbets does a good job with its live bets, and its mobile betting platform is equally impressive.
