GGBet Casino Design and Usability
This is is one of the more colourful of the websites focused on esports betting. While the font page of the layout relies mainly on whites, greys and blacks the active frames on the website flash through colourful images of the games on offer, and upcoming tournaments. This website relies on a great deal of these active frames and tabs, which is most likely due to the website using a structure which keeps a live track of games and game scores. Systems like this need to be malleable, and this sort of design allows for that level of freedom.
In terms of usability this website is quite average. There is a common problem which is run into when websites include designs so reliant on frame and tabs – the website often slows down. On GGBet everything remains rather fast and active. Only slight delays arise when clicking around for the various websites, which is very much appreciated. The one issue which did ruin the experience was the registration process simply not working in our tests, under any circumstances. We were greeted with an infinite loop of registration, registration not working, and being unable to login.
There is a direct app available for GGBet. To access this a player needs only to visit their main website from their mobile device and click the link. Alternatively the app is also available from most major app stores.

Our Experience and General Reviews
My experience with this casino has been frustrating. What at first was promising turned out to be unusable, with the bugs we encountered in the registration process. While this issue did persist on different browsers, and on different devices, it is possible that this is due to a temporary error.
General reviews of GGBet Casino rate it low to medium.
COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS
When it comes to esports games offered by this casino, GGBet comes somewhere among the top of the pack. These cover most of the major bases. It also comes with a few other popular games, such as pokies and roulette, but there is only a small variety available here.
The wagering requirements for the site are somewhere around average.
The bonuses from this casino are unknown, due to their registration faults.
When it comes to support structure does fairly well, with multiple avenues of contact and coordination available.
General consensus on GGBet Casino is that it has a great selection of esports games, and works well, when it works. This is one website with a lot of controversy surrounding it, as apparently quite a few users have it labelled as dodgy.
A great effort by GGBet here on the social media front. Their Facebook page has a total of over 4000 followers, though their last update did come at over a month prior to the writing of this review.
Their Twitter page performs even better, with over 6.5k followers. This also seems to be updated more frequently than their Facebook page.
A site with a lot of potential, which is let down in a couple of areas. If the registration problem remains then I would absolutely recommend avoiding this website. There is also an issue where this is one of the websites we have reviewed with the more users claiming it is suspect. Whether or not this is true is difficult to ascertain, as there are always a certain quantity of gamblers who speak against a gambling website where they lose money.
All in all, provided you can register, the website has a lot to offer when it comes to esports betting. In the event that our issues turn out to be from a random temporary problem then we would be happy to improve this score.
