Design and Navigation
When you first enter ScandiBet.com you will be met by a seasonally themed Nordic landscape as well as the two mascots of the casino greeting you, their names are Ivar and Astrid by the way. They are of course of Viking heritage in a funny cartoonish way, continuing a theme that starts already with the logo of the brand. The colors found all over the page reflect the Scandinavian theme, with lots of red, blue, white and yellow, the colors represent all the Scandinavian colors. The whole site is one of simplicity and order, everything is placed where you would expect to find it, both in the sports and casino section.
The casino part is surprisingly easy to navigate, with a series of choices at the top to take you to your desired group of games, be it slots, jackpots, live casino, blackjack or roulette. The one most players will choose is of course slots, and here we find the option to sort by popularity, alphabetical order, providers or simply showing the games you have chosen as your favorites, and if you are looking for one game the search bar is there to help you.

The site seems to have new offers quite often, the highlight so far probably being the 31 offers that made up their daily Christmas calendar, of course always in the month of December. The calendar also consisted of raffles and other competitions to keep their customers entertained. At the moment you can also participate in a sports deposit bonus of 10% every single day, the wagering being x10 the deposit, which, given it’s a daily offer, is rather generous. There is also up to 10% weekly cash-back available for all casino players, don’t forget to opt-in for this. Their promotions page gives a tidy and simple overview of the current offers available.
When it comes to the game selection, there isn’t much to be missed at ScandiBet for the regular player.

All games are playable on your mobile phone as well. The rest of the casino also comes complete with a wide selection of games including plenty of existing live casino games.
For sports the selection is equally satisfying, with all the sports you would expect to find, along with every league you could possibly be interested in playing on.
