Overall, Parimatch has a basic sportsbook product for the Indian market. Although the cricket odds are solid, the site can’t compete with the competition when it comes to functionality and range of sports available to bet on.
There are sometimes a few extra clicks involved to reach an event, which can be a little frustrating. For example, to reach a match, you must click on the sport, then the league, then the event to reach the odds.
At the moment there is no text search either, which makes it harder to navigate between different sports.
If this was added then it would benefit customers who want to browse a wider range of events, especially if more are added in the future.
Limited Sports Available in India
The range of sports is very low compared to the competition. Those wanting to wager on a large range of events will want to consider this.
Cricket is well covered, as is football, but there are some popular sports missing such as badminton, hockey, and badminton.
Some of these are available elsewhere in the world, so perhaps they’ll be added at a later time.
Here’s what you can expect as a customer in India:
- Table Tennis
- Ice Hockey
- American Football
Although this isn’t a major problem if your main betting interest is cricket, it’s worth keeping in mind for customers who have a wider range of betting events in mind.
Indian Super League
There is good coverage of domestic football. Fans of the Indian Super League will find every match available with a range of odds available well ahead of kick-off.
Each game has around 40 betting markets listed before getting underway. This compares well with other betting sites and should suit many football fans looking to place a bet.
The main outcomes are all covered, but there is a lack of player-focused betting opportunities such as goalscorer odds for this competition.
The English Premier League is very well covered by Parimatch in India. This isn’t a surprise given the company’s European focus.
Unlike the ISL, the choice of markets is extremely impressive. There are over 350 different choices for every EPL match.
Although most bettors might only be interested in the most popular 50 markets, it’s a bonus to be able to select from so many options.
The range of odds is comparable with top betting sites in England. It outmatches the majority of betting sites that welcome Indian customers at this point in time.
Tennis odds are available on the majority of events, even those lowe-ranked tournaments that might not be offered elsewhere.
Each match has a good choice of different outcomes listed, although coverage is not as wide as some betting sites may offer.
Unless you’re looking for more obscure betting markets though, this shouldn’t be a problem.
At the time of writing there are no outright odds available for tennis. even major competitions such as the Australian, French or US Open. Most betting sites will offer basic future markets, even for competitions that are months away.
