FairPlay is a betting exchange, sportsbook and online casino primarily aimed at customers from India. Indeed, they claim to be the biggest betting exchange in the world – which is bold and, as our trusty readers know, not true.
There are not that many betting exchanges available in India, however, though their number has been increasing. It does make FairPlay.Club an alternative to consider as opposed to traditional sportsbooks.
Alas, information about the company behind FairPlay.Club remains scarce. The site was launched in 2020, but there is no mention anywhere of who owns and operates the betting exchange. It seems a mystery and baffles us somewhat.
Before we dive into a detailed review, let’s check out what’s good and what’s not about them:
- Indian betting exchange and sportsbook
- Live casino and slot games
- Strong focus on cricket betting
- Live streaming available
- Convenient payment options
- 24/7 live chat
- Most parts of the sportsbooks and casino can only be accessed after creating an account
- Curacao license cannot be verified
- Customer service is slow
- Unknown owner
Safety and Security
A betting site whose owner is unknown is not one we would immediately consider trustworthy. It is a lack of transparency that seems unnecessary. FairPlay.Club has garnered some reviews around the internet and most seem to be favourable, but many of those are also rather uncritical.
FairPlay.Club appears to be licensed by Curacao eGaming. A license logo is displayed on their homepage, but the license cannot be verified as it is not linked. That’s annoying and also doesn’t instil trust.
We would like to see the company’s name and registration number as well as the usual details somewhere on the site but couldn’t find it at all.
The good news is, we couldn’t find reports of fraudulent activities either. Some customers report fast payouts and we also didn’t find any warnings about FairPlay.Club. If it were a rogue site, we would imagine that it would have come up somewhere.
As usual, if we are not quite certain about a betting site, we recommend you take a cautious approach and only make small deposits, bets and several withdrawals to test them out thoroughly.
Betting and gambling at FairPlay.Club
Given that FairPlay.Club claims to be the biggest betting exchange in the world, they don’t actually offer a ton of sports or markets to bet on.
Their focus is clearly on tennis, football and cricket, which you can click on and see available betting options for current and upcoming events. But there were only three cricket events covered here, though at the time of our review more than a dozen cricket events took place in several countries.
Football and tennis receive better coverage, of course.
As it is, aside from the betting exchange, which allows you to back and lay bets against other players but appears to be rather smaller than FairPlay.Club claims, there is also a ‘Premium Sportsbook’. However, when you click on it, you are asked to register or login. Clicking on ‘continue as guest’ doesn’t lead anywhere but back to the homepage. So, we don’t really know which other sports might be available for betting here.
Telling you exactly what cricket betting options you may have at FairPlay.Club is a little bit difficult. When you visit their homepage, you will see the different sections of this betting site, which gives you access to inplay betting, cricket betting, soccer, tennis, a premium sportsbook, a live casino, live card games and slots.
We tried getting further information from the customer service, which proved rather tedious as they referred us to their website several times to take ‘a look yourself’ at the sportsbook. When we asked whether betting on rugby, basketball or even kabaddi was available, they finally confirmed that betting options for rugby and basketball were but not for kabaddi.
So, if you don’t want to sign up just yet but want to know in advance which sports are available for betting at FairPlay.Club, you can ask customer service. But be persistent and specific.
If you simply want to take a look at the live casino, casino or slot section at FairPlay.Club, you will encounter the same problem, meaning you are asked to login or register but won’t get access to these sections. Again, clicking on ‘continue as guest’ only leads back to the homepage.
So, once more we asked the customer service team to provide us with further information and were told that over 100 games were available at the casino. We could have asked for more details, but were a little fed up at that point.
The homepage does display the logos of various providers FairPlay.Club works with, which means you can expect to find slots, casino games and live casino tables from providers such as Microgaming, Evolution Gaming, Booongo, BetSoft, Ezugi, Realtime Gaming as well as a few more.
As such, there will surely be more than a 100 slot games available and dozens of table and live dealer games. With their focus on Indian customers, we also expect that Andar Bahar and Teen Patti are available at FairPlay.Club.
Welcome Offer and Promotions
It’s difficult to give you many details about the promotions available at FairPlay.Club as the promotions page offers very few details and the banner at the top of the homepage will only give you some information but doesn’t link to the actual promotions either.
So, we know that there is a casino welcome bonus available that gives you a 100% match bonus for your first deposit. But the information we found is somewhat confusing. When you click on the fold-away menu on the left-hand side, you’ll see a ‘Promotions’ link, where promotions are shown for the sportsbook, live casino and live cards. Apparently, the sports welcome bonus is a match deposit, and we guess that depositing between INR 500 and 999 will give you a bonus of INR 500 according to the little table shown on the site.
This also means, a deposit between INR 1,000 and 4,999 comes with a bonus of INR 1,000, whilst a deposit between INR 5,000 and above offers a bonus of INR 3,000. So, this isn’t a 100% match bonus for the most part. Any associated terms and conditions are not mentioned here whatsoever. Some information is available in the “Rules and Regulations” section, so be sure to read through that as well.
Additionally, we know that FairPlay.Club offers a 5% referral bonus as well as 12% interest on your FairPlay balance. It sounds interesting, though we don’t know how exactly that works and can’t tell whether it is worth your while.
Regular punters at FairPlay.Club can also enjoy the benefits of a loyalty club, which you join automatically when you register an account here. Players will be able to climb through four levels. With each level, the percentage in bonus funds you receive with every deposit is increased, going from 0% to 2%, then 4% and finally 6%. Apparently, there is no cap on the amount of bonus funds you can receive.
That’s about all we were able to find out for you, which is better than nothing.
Payment methods at FairPlay.Club
Whilst there is no separate banking page, FairPlay.Club at least displays some of the available payment methods on the homepage. as such, we know you can make deposits and withdrawals via UPI, PayPal, PayTM, PhonePe, GPay, bank transfers and several cryptocurrencies. Since this betting site specifically caters to Indian customers, this is the least we would expect.
Naturally, the main currency accepted here is INR, though customers that are not from India may use PayPal or GPay if they wish to deposit in other currencies.
Check out the FAQ section, which includes some details about minimum and maximum transaction limits and offers some other useful information regarding payments. The good news is that there does not appear to be a withdrawal limit per transaction. The Rules and Regulations don’t mention a weekly or monthly limit either.
We expect that you will need to verify you identity at some point at FairPlay.Club, which is a requirement for the KYC process and in adherence with anti-money laundering regulations. The betting site makes no mention of it (not in easily accessible ways) but be prepared to have your documents ready and get it done sooner rather than later.
The customer service team at FairPlay.Club is available 24/7 via email, live chat and several social media channels.
The FAQ section is useful and deals with a few topics of interest to new customers. There is also a ‘Rules and Regulations’ page, which is more or less the ‘terms and conditions’ page at FairPlay.Club.
We are missing details about bonus conditions, KYC processes, and the site owner, of course, but you may try and contact customer service to get those information.
Alas, we found dealing with them rather more tedious than we would have preferred. Telling us to ‘register and take a look’ is unhelpful, especially after we told them we didn’t want to register just yet and needed that information in advance.
At least, they thought it was ‘fine’ if we didn’t want to play after registering an account. But this still could have gone a lot better.
The design of the FairPlay.Club homepage is not super modern, but it does feel fresh enough. There is a top main menu and a fold-away menu that gives you access to various parts of the site – or not. You won’t be able to access the premium sportsbook or any of the casino sections, not even if you click on ‘continue as guest’. We’re not sure if that is a glitch or by design. It certainly is annoying.
And speaking of annoying, the large banner at the top of the homepage cycles through its various highlights of promotions and upcoming events rather quickly, which means you barely catch what they are about.
There isn’t much else we can say about the usability of the page since we didn’t really get to use it apart from searching through its various sections and sites and sometimes not getting anywhere.
The mobile page is much the same, scaled down to the smaller screen of mobile devices. The homepage also advertises a mobile app, though it doesn’t mention whether it is for iOS or Android devices.
It is difficult to give you a verdict about FairPlay.Club. We do see some potential here, but we don’t exactly know what we are looking at most of the time. Not getting access to vital parts of the betting site unless you register an account is very annoying and unhelpful. It adds to the lack of transparency we noticed, even though the site does provide a fair bit of information. But we know nothing about their owners and unless we get a clearer picture of who we are dealing with here, we are reluctant to just create an account on faith alone.
The good news is, there don’t seem to be major complaints or reports of fraudulent activities. So, if you are curious about them and want to know more, go ahead and check them out. Be sure to pester their customer service for a bit as this might even get you somewhere. But also use the site carefully and don’t just throw your money at them.
