PariPesa is a still relatively new sportsbook that was established in 2019. It is another sportsbook that primarily caters to CIS countries, claiming to be the biggest bookmaker in the CIS countries, which not difficult to believe when you take a look at the sheer number of sports and events they are covering.
The sportsbook is built on the same platform as similar sites such as 1xbet, which is why it seems rather familiar. Not surprisingly, it offers the full range of betting and gambling services that any bookmaker or online casino can offer, ranging from slots to live tables to TV games, live betting, pre-match betting, lotto, poker and bingo as well as virtual sports.
Any punter from India who loves betting on cricket as well as kabaddi and tons of other sports, should definitely check out PariPesa as one of the largest sportsbooks around.

Let’s take a closer look at everything that PariPesa has to offer and whether it is a good sportsbook for punters from India.
Safety and security
Owned by Vezzali Limited, who are registered in Cyprus and operated by Propus Holding N.V., PariPesa is licensed in Curacao.
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.
Sportsbook and betting options
We have never encountered a BetB2B sportsbook that wasn’t expansive. Usually, you’ll get at least 30 different sports to bet on, a vast range of events and leagues that are covered and tons of betting options.
PariPesa is no different. Here you can bet on more than 40 different sports, including cricket, kabaddi, football, baseball, golf, tennis, basketball, politics, motorsports, water sports, greyhound and horse racing, American sports, and niche sports.
Smaller events will only have a handful of outright betting options, whilst big events will often have dozens or even hundreds of available markets and special bets you can place. You can place single bets, multi-bets, combination bets or use the Bet Constructor to build your bets.
Getting to know all the different options you have at PariPesa will take a while, but it is a worthy endeavour.
Naturally, cricket betting is very well covered, with easily 400 and more matches available to bet as well as a dozens of markets for many of them. Odds are competitive, though do sometimes depend on the event as well. The IPL is much better covered than the Gibraltar Premier League, for instance.
Look beyond cricket and you will find much more to enjoy. Just because it is India’s favourite sport doesn’t mean that betting in India is reduced just to cricket. Given just how much the PariPesa sportsbook has to offer, it is a great place to discover other leagues and niche sports to bet on as well.
And whilst you will get an excellent pre-match betting experience here, live betting enthusiasts need not worry that they might be overlooked. You will be able to follow many events live at PariPesa and even enjoy some live streaming.
Casino and other gambling products
With easily over 100 game providers available at PariPesa, you will find an extensive library of slots, table games, arcade and TV games, scratch cards, bingo, keno, lottery games, video poker and real poker here.
Interestingly, we found just as many developers here that we know and like as there were those we had never heard of before. That leaves a lot to be discovered by you if you are interested in more than just sports betting.
Fans of Andar Bahar and Teen Patti can visit the live casino and try their luck with both games at various live dealer tables.
Our only gripe is the lack of major progressive jackpots, which are not available here. The games listed in the jackpot section were unfamiliar ones, but perhaps some of them yield some solid wins anyway.
Welcome bonuses and other promotions
Betting sites and online casinos built on the BetB2B platform usually offer a version of the same two sports and casino bonus, which we have seen time and again by now.
As such, you won’t find much new here if you have ever visited another of the many bookmakers that use this platform.
You will be able to claim a 100% match bonus if you sign up at the sportsbook, which comes with up to INR 8,000 extra to match your first deposit. Wager the bonus funds 5x on accumulator bets with odds of 1.4 or higher. You will have 30 days to complete wagering if you wish to withdraw the bonus or winnings from it.
Similarly, the casino welcome bonus, which you can choose signing up at the casino instead, 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
This is quite generous and slot fans in particular will appreciate the many free spins, which are always available on different slots. But the wagering requirements are steep. You will need to wager the bonus 35x within 7 days, which is difficult to achieve.
Existing customers can also claim regular bonuses, such as cashbacks, free bets, accumulator boosts and betting tournaments or friend referral bonuses. The casino frequently holds multiple tournament where you can win extra cash or cool prizes, so it never really gets boring at PariPesa.
24/7 Customer Service
At PariPesa, you won’t find a help centre or even an FAQ section. There is some information around the website, and you should also read through the terms and conditions. But would really have appreciated a proper help section as well.
So, if you do have questions that the website can’t answer, you will have to contact customer service and hopefully you will find help there. The PariPesa customer service doesn’t have the greatest reputation and seems to offer scripted replies regularly. But with a little patience you will find the answers you need.
You can contact the team via live chat, email or Telegram.
Banking at PariPesa
Click on the little “$” in the top left-hand corner and you’ll be taken to the banking page at PariPesa. Or go to the ‘Useful Links’ section at the bottom of the page, where a dedicated link takes you to the same section.
Somewhat surprisingly, PariPesa only offers two dozen banking options, half of which are e-Wallets. But since most of the deposit and withdrawal methods available here are some of Indian customers’ preferred ways to pay for anything these days, we have no complaints.
Whether you use PayTM, PhonePe or UPI or AirTM, all of these and more options are available here. And crypto fans will also be able to use the best-known and most solid among the cryptocurrencies.
Also, whilst we bemoaned a lack of a help centre, PariPesa does supply many extra information, which include separate links to their AML and KYC policies, which you really should be reading through as well.
Software, design and mobile play
With betting sites built on the BetB2B platform, there is always a sense of just a little too much that the web designers tried to cram onto the page. The main menu is vast, the left-hand side menu is long. Hovering your mouse cursor over some of the menu options will open massive drop-down options that show you large icons of game developers or even game icons. Click on the wrong link and you may even get lost here.
It always just feels too cluttered and difficult to navigate. It does take some getting used to before you begin feeling at home at PariPesa.
The mobile version is also not the easiest to navigate and involves a lot of swiping and scrolling. But the design does feel a little tidier and easier to manage.
Finally, PariPesa currently offers a mobile app for download, though only for Android devices. We hope that eventually an iOS app will be published as well.
Verdict: An excellent sportsbook with a few shortcomings and not much of an established reputation
There is much to like about PariPesa for customers from India with the site being available in Hindi, generous bonuses and many promotions, a vast sportsbook that covers cricket particularly well but also offers other favourite Indian sports.
We have already summarised for you what we appreciate the most here and what we feel needs improving. Ultimately, PariPesa has an excellent sportsbook and the few shortcomings we have mentioned can be overlooked and will hopefully be improved at some point.
But PariPesa is still relatively unknown and does not have much of a reputation. That doesn’t mean it has a bad reputation, mind you. So, we simply have to continue to watch how they are doing.
