Midnite is the latest esportsbook to enter the competitive industry. Licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, it is based in London and accepts British players and punters from beyond its borders. It has an impressive collection of esports markets, with an emphasis on providing players with sufficient live betting options.
Even though Midnite strives to make a name for itself in the online sports betting industry, it doesn’t do nearly enough in terms of attracting new players with generous bonuses. The main bonus that you can claim on the platform is a measly $5 bet. What’s even worse, you will need to deposit and wager at least $25 to get the $5 free bet. So, it’s obvious that there is a lot of room for improvement here. We hope that Midnite will introduce new and bigger bonuses in the near future to attract the players to its online sports betting platform.
The betting margin is also uninspiring. It’s set at the industry average of around 7%. This doesn’t help Midnite stand out from the competition. However, there are many sports bookies that offer even higher betting margins and Midnite is well above them in terms of providing players with higher levels of potential profitability.
Midnite is, first and foremost, an esports betting bookie. This means that the players can’t expect to be able to place wagers on traditional sports such as baseball or football. However, the good news is that there are dozens of different esports and events that you can wager bets on. Of course, if you wish to place bets on regular sports, then you have no business at Midnite. But if you’re a fan of esports, then Midnite definitely has something to offer to you.
The betting markets and their variability is the main strength of Midnite and one of the areas where it excels above and beyond what the competition has on offer. For the sake of reference, you can place bets on some of the most popular esports games, such as StarCraft, Rocket League, StarCraft II, Rainbow Six, Call of Duty, DOTA 2, CS:GO, and others.
There are a lot of resources and tools that you can use for dealing with problem gambling. Sadly, there are some people that will need to use all the help they can get to deal with this potentially very serious problem. You can get on self-exclusion lists which will bar you from entering the website and logging into your account for a period of at least six months. Or you can enter a cool-down list for a few weeks or months. There’s always the option to contact a professional organization if you need one-on-one help from a professional. These organizations are vital in solving the problems that the players may have from excessive sports betting or gambling. You can contact Gamblers Anonymous, NetNanny, and others. You can get a lot of useful information there on dealing with your excessive sports betting habits. Lastly, you can place wagering and deposit limits to limit the sum of money that you will be able to spend at Midnite against your own will.
There are only a handful of payment methods for the players at Midnite. These are Visa, Skrill, MasterCard, Neteller, and Trustly. However, make no mistake about it, these payment methods are more than adequate to serve the vast majority of players that wish to make deposits and withdrawals at Midnite. The important thing to note is that these payment methods are safe and secure. You won’t pay any additional fees for making transactions and the transactions will be quick and swift. The payment platform at Midnite is more than adequate even though there is some room for introducing new payment options.
However, before making your first withdrawal from the platform, you will need to verify your identity to Midnite. This is a regular process that players need to go through in practically all the legit online casinos and sports bookies. What you’ll need to do is provide a selection of documents such as your ID, passport, or driver’s license, alongside bank or credit card statements. Once you submit these documents, Midnite will review them and you will typically get permission to complete your first withdrawals in less than 72 hours. The good news is this is a one-time process and that you won’t have to go through it for every withdrawal that you will make.
The customer service experience at Midnite is quite adequate as well. There are a few ways in which you can contact customer service at your discretion, including live chat, email, Discord, and Twitter. Either way, we think that live chat is the one and only option that you will have to use in most cases. It’s always available 24/7, which means that you can get in touch with a customer service agent at any time. That being said, there’s nothing wrong with using Twitter, Discord, or email to contact customer service at Midnite. It’s just that we feel that live chat will get the job done for you in most cases.
There is room for improvement in the field of utility features, though. For now, the only feature that we could find at Midnite is the live streams. Of course, this is arguably the most important of all utility features, as the vast majority of esports bettors love to watch the games live as they place bets. This enhances the experience and attracts new players to come and wager bets. However, there are no bet builders, cashouts, or any other utility features whatsoever. Your best bet, for now, is to hope that Midnite will start introducing new utility features that the players can enjoy and that they can use to enhance their esports betting experience at Midnite.
So, Midnite can very well rise to the top in the esports betting industry as it definitely has a lot of potential. Midnite has several strengths, including a big variety of esports as well as a handpicked selection of popular and safe payment methods for the players. However, there is room for improvement in the field of bonuses and in the field of utility features. Regardless, we still feel that you will have a lot of fun if you create an account and deposit money at Midnite, and if you place esports wagers and bets.
