About the bookmaker
Unlike its Russian counterpart, Betsity Belarus focuses on players from different jurisdictions, mainly from the CIS. Residents of countries where sports betting are allowed at the legislative level can create an account in the office.
In 2006, the Ministry of Sports and Tourism of the Republic of Belarus issued a license for legal activity in the name of the bookmaker. It was extended in 2011. Its number is 33120/101.
The bookmaker's land-based betting shops are located in all the city centers of the regions of Belarus, as well as in seven settlements from different parts of the country:
Betcity by is one of the top 3 betting companies in the Republic of Belarus in terms of the number of bettors. More land points for making bets are only at Parimatch and Marathon.
The line of the Belarusian office is considered one of the best both in the republic and in neighboring countries. Many beginners and old-timers of the sports betting market, like the Plus-Minus company, prefer to copy it.
The official website of the Belarusian bookmaker is banned in Russia, since it is not connected to the ECSUPS and ERAI and does not have a license from the Federal Tax Service of the Russian Federation .to index ↑

Types of bets
The company allows you to make three types of bets in prematch and live:
|Bets||Number of events in the basket (coupon)|
|Systems (multi-bets)||From 3|
Step by step procedure for placing a bet :
- Select markets — click on the odds of outcomes from different matches.
- Set the type of bet.
- Enter the amount.
- Get a coupon — click on the “Place a bet” button.
Additional coupon options:
- Agree with the change in the redemption amount. The cashout function is available to users for all types I'll bet. The bookmaker calls this a bet buyout. In the basket, you can allow or prohibit the office from changing the amounts available for early withdrawal of money.
- Agreeing with the change in coefficients — you can accept or reject the coupon when changing quotes in the process of filling the basket.
The betting line is represented by 25+ markets, among which there are events far from sports. For example, in the "Culture" section, it is proposed to bet on:
- the results of the TV game "What? Where? When?"
- the first company to conquer Mars
- the year the Earth was declared a flat planet
In sports betting the focus is on disciplines of the caliber of football, basketball and hockey. Up to 4000 matches are available for betting daily. Deepest Markets:
Competitions with the best odds and low margins are duplicated in the Popular pre-match block.
The main football tournaments (Champions League, Premier League, Primera and others), NHL, KHL and NBA are mainly added to it. The remaining disciplines fall into the "Popular" when large-scale championships are held in them. For example, biathlon will be in this block during the World Cup. Consequently, the conditions for betting will be the most favorable at this very moment.to contents ↑
Football is not limited to the list of top championships. German Bundesliga-caliber competitions are diluted with narrowly popular divisions and cups from all over the world - Bahrain, Cyprus, Colombia, Ghana and two dozen more countries.
The top line depth is not supported by good painting. Up to 150 markets are given for matches within the Premier League, while most international bookmakers have about 1,500 outcomes for popular football events. The study of exotic championships is even weaker - up to 80 betting options.
Most of all markets offer bets on handicap, individual and total totals, halftime results and exact score. There are also outcomes with modest variability, which are not given by all bookmakers. For example:
- whether there will be a penalty or a red card in the match
- whether one of the teams will be able to make a comeback
- win by one ball
- score during the match
Before placing a bet, the bettor can get acquainted with the statistics of future opponents. To do this, click on the icon in the form of a diaphragm, which is located opposite the names of the playing teams.
The following statistics are available to the bettor in the window that opens:
- результаты последних пяти матчей каждой из команд;
- how many times TB(2.5) has broken through in the last five games and in the whole championship;
- history of personal meetings.
In addition to making traditional pre-match bets, you can bet on long-term events such as tournament winners, best players and scorers.
Most outcomes are assigned to team achievements by type:
- which of a pair of clubs will finish higher in the tournament;
- коллектив из какой страны завоюет еврокубок;
- whether the team will win all the home matches in the season.
There are also bets on the individual achievements of the players. For example, bets are being placed that Manchester United and Portugal striker Cristiano Ronaldo will reach the 900 goals mark for his club and national team before he retires.
The ice hockey market is no less attractive. When working on this discipline, the bias is made towards international tournaments of national teams (World Championship and Olympics), as well as club championships of the USA and Russia - NHL and KHL, respectively. Top league matches have up to 90 markets.
In the background are the Kazakh championship and a dozen European championships - Ukraine, Belarus, France, Sweden and other countries. The list of narrowly popular divisions is very modest - only about ten outcomes. Some adult tournaments, such as the World Cup and the Czech Championship, have their junior counterparts.
Like football, hockey provides pre-match statistics for future opponents and accepts long-term bets. Exclusive markets:
- whether specific opponents will meet in the playoffs;
- whether there will be a clean sheet after regular time in the game day;
- whether the goalkeeper will score on tournament;
- whether a hockey player of a certain nationality will get into the All-Star Team.
The basketball market provides almost half as many events as hockey, but its geography is noticeably wider. The line includes the leagues of Australia, Chile, South Korea, the Philippines and a dozen more exotic countries with a list of up to 10 outcomes.
Dominates the NBA basketball market. Variability of bets on this tournament remains low (up to 20 markets), however, the main line is supplemented with 50+ long-playing betting options: regular season and playoff winners, record holders.
Euroleague and VTB United League. All three championships have the same pattern, however, in the line of long-term bets, European tournaments are limited to 1-2 markets.
Tennis, as is often the case in the international betting market, is highly dependent on the Majors. When Roland Garros or other Grand Slams are not on the horizon, the bookmaker offers up to ten competitions for men and women in the ITF series. The list of such events is limited to betting on the winner, total and handicap.
During the Majors, the tennis market becomes more attractive with about 200 matches with 20+ outcomes each.
Long-play betting line offers bets on Grand Slam tournaments all year round, even when there are more than 6 left before they start -9 months. In parallel, it is possible to predict how many Majors specific tennis players and female tennis players will win in a year.
The top 5 most developed sports, excluding e-sports, are volleyball and American football. In the first discipline, the bookmaker is focused on European national championships like Russian, Belarusian and Slovak, in the second - on the NFL tournament.
Both sports are equally poorly scheduled - about 20 markets. In the volleyball section, there are no long-term bets, but American football allows you to bet on the winners of the regular season and the NFL playoffs.
Developing some secondary disciplines:
|Sports||Главные лиги||Average Painting||Long Term Stakes|
|Figure skating||Russian Championship, Grand Prix stages, Olympics, World Cup||5|
|Rugby||Six Nations Cup, Australian Championship|
|Futsal||Russian, Spanish, Ukrainian Leagues||15||None|
|Table tennis||Russian and Czech championships||10|
Since pre-match sports betting at Betcity by cannot boast of a great variety, the office is in no hurry to reduce the list in live. For example, out of 150 such markets for a match in the Premier League, by the end of the first half, there will be about 130.
What is noticeably reduced is the depth of the line. On average, Live rarely gives more than ten markets. Some disciplines (for example, floorball) are never duplicated in the section with bets on already started events.
There are three tabs in Live. In addition to live betting, Live-calendar and Live-results are available. The first item sorts started and upcoming events by time slots and allows you to find games with video broadcasts (icon in the form of a player).
In Live results, the current score in matches that have already started.
Through both tabs you can go to the list of games and thereby not miss the chance to bet at the most profitable odds.back to contents ↑
Официальный сайт БК Betcity by заключает пари по хорошим котировкам с приемлемой букмекерской комиссией. Для примера определена прематчевая маржа футбольного поединка в рамках АПЛ между «Астон Виллой» и «Челси».
Для расчета комиссии используется следующая формула:
(1 / коэффициент на победу хозяев + 1 / ничья + 1 / победа гостей – 1) * 100%.
When substituting quotes from the screenshot, we get:
(1 / 5.80 + 1 / 3.50 + 1 / 1.72 – 1) * 100% = 3%
Средняя маржа другого топ-спорта и узкопопулярных дисциплин:
|Sports||Average pre-match commission|
|Basketball, hockey, tennis, eSports||4-6%|
|Cricket, darts, billiards, floorball||7-9%|
On the example of the meeting between Liverpool and Leicester in the English Cup league, the live commission of top football is calculated.
(1 / 1.80 + 1 / 3.70 + 1 / 4.70 – 1) * 100% = 3% 1074
Маржа на футбол в Live практически не растет, но вот у остального спорта ее показатели выше прематчевых:
|Discipline||Average live commission|
|Баскетбол, хоккей, теннис, киберспорт||6-8%|
|Cricket, darts, billiards, floorball||9-12%|
Maximum and minimum bet
Betcity by users often complain about the initial setting of low betting limits by the bookmaker. For example, after registration and successful verification, the bettor may see the following note in the coupon: “Specify the amount up to 10 BYN”.

- Make a bet.
According to the current users of the office, the administration can consider a request for a VIP bet within 5-10 minutes. If the bet is approved, it goes to the account history, if not, the mark “Rejected” appears in front of it.
The bookmaker has the right to refuse to accept a VIP bet without explaining the reasons. When considering the request, the bet amount is debited from the deposit and returned in case of refusal. The option applies to singles, accumulators and systems.
In addition to VIP betting, fair play at a distance can raise the limits. If the security service does not suspect the client of fraud, he may be allowed to bet more impressive amounts.
