PariPesa is licensed by Curacao, which means they do hold a valid gambling license, but it is not the best or most reputable one. Indeed, the control mechanisms by Curacao eGaming seem lax at best, which is always worrisome.
This means PariPesa must be judged solely on its own merits. And whilst we’ve seen many reviews from similar sites such as ours, we’ve not seen any conclusive player comments that would sway us one way or another.
Some of the terms and conditions we’ve found at PariPesa seem very strict and put players and punters at a disadvantage. This is not unusual with relatively new betting sites. Usually, when players adhere to all rules and regulations, depositing only a little money and requesting smaller withdrawals, they tend to be on the safe side.
Nothing suggests that PariPesa is untrustworthy, however, which means we can recommend that you proceed with caution. They seem certainly safe to check out if you like what they have to offer.
Cricket betting and other sports
There is definitely no shortage of cricket betting at PariPesa. When we last checked them out, nearly 500 markets were available to bet on covering a wide variety of matches.
Check out the selection of events we found odds for:
- Carlton Mid T20
- Gibraltar Premier League
- Tamil Nadu Premier League
- Kwibuka 2022 Women
- Royal London One Day Cup
- London Championship Women
- Afghanistan Premier League
- Sussex Cup T20
- Big Bash Night Fever
- India Saurashtra Premier League
The list goes on. Whether you are only interested in Indian competition, further Asian cricket leagues or international cricket events, there is plenty available at PariPesa either way. Depending on the event, the number of available markets ranged from just a handful to several dozens. PariPesa certainly offered one of the biggest selections we have seen lately.
Beyond cricket betting, several dozen other sports and special events are available to bet on. There is, of course, football, tennis and horse racing, but also e-Sports, politics, squash, motor sports or also plenty of Kabaddi. The selection is truly vast and shows that PariPesa is working with an experienced provider here.
This includes plenty of niche sports as well. You can even bet on bare-knuckle boxing, which is the first time we have seen this offered anywhere at all.
The focus here is on live betting, of course, where tons of markets are added beyond what is available for pre-match betting. It is quite handy that the distinction between both is made in the left-hand menu, where you find long-term bets at the bottom of the list.
Finally, we found the odds to be competitive as well, making PariPesa’s sportsbook a solid option for many bettors, experienced or not. We usually recommend that you shop around regardless, especially since some sports available for betting here are not available at many smaller sportsbooks. That means PariPesa may not offer the best possible odds, but they may also be the only ones offering odds on bare-knuckle boxing at all. So, sometimes you might just have to take what you find here.
Games and more
PariPesa provides online casino games from well over a hundred providers. Many of them are smaller studios you never have heard of before. But there are also games from the likes of Microgaming, ELK Studios, Thunderkick, BetSoft, BigTimeGaming, Pragmatic Play, Just for the Win and many others.
If you are looking for the games from a particular provider, you can easily apply a filter, which is a useful option to have.
Slots aside, there is also a vast live casino, which supplies games not just from Evolution Gaming or Ezugi but also Pragmatic Play, Vivo Gaming and others. Players from India will particularly appreciate the ability to play Andar Bahar and Teen Patti live.
PariPesa also covers TV games, virtual sports, bingo, poker and a wide selection of other games to choose from.
Anyone looking for an online casino with tons of different games to choose from will not know what to do with themselves at PariPesa. The choice is almost overwhelming.
Promotions and bonuses
New players at PariPesa can choose one of two welcome offers. You can grab a casino welcome bonus or a sports welcome bonus.
There is a 100% match bonus available for sportsbook customers, which will give you up to INR 8,000 extra matching your first deposit. This bonus needs to be wagered 5x on accumulator bets with odds of 1.4 or higher. Customers have 30 days to complete wagering.
The casino welcome bonus is spread across your first four deposits and looks like this:
- 1st deposit - 100% and up to INR 26,000 plus 30 free spins
- 2nd deposit - 50% and up to INR 30,000 plus 35 free spins
- 3rd deposit - 25% and up to INR 35,000 plus 40 free spins
- 4th deposit - 25% and up to INR 39,000 plus 45 free spins
On the downside, this bonus needs to be wagered 35x within 7 days, which is difficult to achieve if you claim the full bonus amount.
Welcome bonuses aside, regular customers can claim a number of casino or sportsbook bonuses with different terms for each bonus. There are accumulator bonuses as well as bet insurances available.
At PariPesa, customers can also collect bonus points when they bet or play, which can then be exchanged for promo codes. These promo codes then give players free bets for specific games or sports to bet on. It’s an interesting incentive program, which offers something for everyone.
In order to learn more about banking at PariPesa, you must click on the little “$” icon in the top left-hand corner of the homepage (or click on the ‘Payments’ link at the bottom), you’ll be redirected to the payments page, where you can select your country and see all available payment methods.
We have had issues with this section in the past as not all payment methods that were available actually showed up here, but this seems to have been resolved.
Customers from India will be able to use a variety of e-Wallets, payment systems and cryptocurrencies to make deposits and withdrawals at PariPesa.
As such, you will find the following options here:
- Bank transfer
- LiteCoin, Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc.
- Jeton Wallet
There were 25 deposit and 15 withdrawal options when we checked them out last, which is usually sufficient for most needs. Notably absent were credit cards and e-Wallets such as Neteller and Skrill.
Further information can be found in the terms and conditions and you should also check out the details about their KYC policies as you will have to get your ID verified sooner rather than later.
PariPesa offers 24/7 customer support that is available via live chat or email. When the live chat is available, you’ll see the live chat window with a green arrow and an ‘on-line’ tag. Should it be ‘off-line’ for some reason, you would be able to write and email instead.
The customer service seems friendly and helpful, though you may not always find them useful or particularly knowledgeable.
There is a ton of information available on the website, though that means a lot of advance research. We would have liked to see an easily accessible FAQ or help centre but couldn’t find one.
If you’ve ever used 1xBet, you will get a strong sense of déjà vu when launching the PariPesa homepage. The layout is almost exactly the same as it the functionality of the website. This means, we have exactly the same complaints about PariPesa’s software as we did about 1xBet.
The site is overloaded with links and information. There is just so much going on that you don’t know where to start. If you have prior experience with other sportsbooks or casinos, you’ll find your way around. But if you do not, you are going to be overwhelmed and confused. It really can be too much, though you can change a few settings to make the sportsbook suitable to your needs, which helps.
The deep blue colours of the homepage are a bit much in those areas where they are a little brighter and overwhelmed us somewhat. But as you navigate around, the hues do change here and there, becoming more pleasant in some areas.
Alternatively, we can recommend the mobile page, which is tidier and easier to navigate. The mobile page is the more pleasant option. You can even use the mobile version on your desktop site, which immediately changes the layout to a more manageable design.
PariPesa has also developed a mobile app now, but it is currently only available for download on Android devices. It is not clear whether iOS users will get one as well.
PariPesa has a lot to offer and holds up in direct comparison with 1xBet for instance. There are tons of sports to bet on, including a very good selection of cricket matches. You’ll find competitive odds here, can claim a variety of bonuses and promotions and get to peruse a vast library of online casino games.
It’s easy to recommend PariPesa for sheer variety.
That said whether they are truly great or even completely trustworthy remains to be seen. You can try them out and test them thoroughly without much danger of losing a lot of money as long as you keep things manageable and make only small deposits and withdrawals.
It is certainly worth it to test PariPesa in all aspects before committing to them as your go-to bookmaker and online casino. As long as you do so carefully, we don’t see a problem here. Do make sure to check on their deposit and withdrawal option prior to signing up, though!
