X-Tip under testing: is it a trustworthy betting provider?
X-Tip online betting provider has appeared on the virtual sports betting scene a few months ago. It is clear that as any new betting provider it has to be checked. Is X-Tiptrustworthy? The question can be answered with a firm yes at once, because according to ourX-Tip investigation, behind this label stands well-known and credible Austrian betting shopCashPoint. The betting provider works under favorable EU certificate of authorization, which was issued by Malta Gaming Authority.
Moreover X-Tip has a licenseissued by the British Gaming Commission for the UK market.
Binding to CashPoint has both advantages and disadvantages. Betting offer and amount bet X-Tip copies 1:1 from its mother company, and thus it can be classified as standing in the middle of the leaderboard. It has no really unique selling proposition, but also no negative facts. Positive marks can be surely given to the payment portfolio and very convincing design of mobile sports betting app. However the client support is a weak point.

- 100% bonus by pay-in up to 100 euros
- Paypal as big time pay-in system
- Upper-middle icehockey betting
- App with X-Live button as navigation aid
- EU certificate of authorization and large-scale sponsorship
Bet offer: first class football and hockey
In our experience X-Tip betting offer is clearly focused on needs of average European customers. It is clear especially with football offers to the amateur sector of Germany and Austria. Also upper-middleicehockey betting isgiven in the portfolio. But othersports ispresented ordinarily. In common customers have choice of about 20 different sports and daily up to 12,000 single bets. In the view of the betting options X-Tip is in the middle position of European leaderboard. Test: 8 points.
The betting provider tries to give a variety of offers for betting in a live broadcast, but there are presented only the mainstream sports.
Betting bonus: 100 euros as a gift
The X-Tip bonus makes up to a maximum of 100 euros as a 100% pay-in bonus. The bonus is given after pay-in. This additional money is not available for the payment at once but it has to be unlocked beforehand. The betting provider describesit asit is to be made three-time pay-in with own money and bonus will be given within 90 days under combination bets with at least two individual betsbefore. The individual bets must each have a minimum ratio of 1:50. If these conditions are fulfilled, the bonus amount will be automatically placed as free good money to the players account. The X-Tip bonus is activated immediately by registration. The welcome gift is only valid for customers having place of residence in Germany, Austria, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Hungary.
For the German and Austrian users X-Tip has a small additional coveted prizeup its sleeve.
