Fortuna bookmaker review: rules, support, sign up, free bets, site
Fortuna is considered to be the leader of Central European bookmakers in fixed odds betting, which are its main domain. In addition to the Czech Republic, the bookmaker has offices in Slovakia, Croatia, Romania and Poland. It is a partner of sports clubs and handicapped athletes. For its services, it does not take any handling fee (only in brick-and-mortar offices).
Since 2017, Fortuna has been operating under a Czech license that was issued by the Ministry of Finance of the Czech Republic. The bookmaker offers a mobile application, which is widely used by clients. Customers can fully use the discussion forum or watch sports broadcasts. There are more than 500 branches of Fortuna in the Czech Republic.
Design and layout and user-friendliness of the site/app
Live betting and live broadcasts are available via the web and mobile application, which you can log in to with your fingerprint. Everything works really well and fast. You can even watch several live broadcasts at the same time via the ifortuna.cz website. Fortuna also has a forum where bettors can discuss their tickets and bets. The design of the resource is in black and yellow colours. It may be a bit dark for some customers but it’s very convenient and easy to navigate. Unless you prefer light colours, this website will definitely serve you well.
For owners of devices with Android and iOS, Fortuna offers a mobile betting application available for download. It has a simple and clear design. It offers full betting possibilities including live bets. It also has a match tracker – an overview of every action in the visualization of the match and live statistics. The app also offers sophisticated sports statistics and analysis directly in the menu.
Services and live
The betting office Fortuna offers bets on lesser-known football leagues such as SBR (bet without a draw), second chance resp. double chance, 1st half, number of goals, European handicap, who will score the 1st goal, or exact result or half/match.
Fortuna does not offer popular Asian handicaps but you can enjoy a bet without a draw or European handicap.
In Fortuna, you can bet on SBR, bets including overtime, on all thirds, whether the 1st period/match, the exact result, the handicap, the time of the first goal, the number of goals as well as the number of goals in individual thirds. In the NHL but also in other hockey leagues, you can bet on goal scorers. From 2016, Fortuna also offers bets on goal scorers in overtime or even the scorer of the decisive raid. In addition to the shooter in overtime, Fortuna also offered bets on the number of goals, including overtime.
When betting on tennis, bets on the 1st set, exact result, 1st set/match, number of sets, number of games, handicap games or at least a set or number of games in the 1st set are possible. In addition to large tennis tournaments, the Fortuna bookmaker also lists challenger tournaments.
In the odds offer of the betting company Fortuna, you will find almost all sports and, among other things, odds on TV shows such as Superstar.
For breakdown bets, you can place bets on Fortuna for less than 10 CZK (from 0.01 CZK). Fortuna also provides group tickets, which Fortuna internally calls MAXIKOMBI bets. These are breakdown (system) bets, where you create groups, which you then combine with each other. One group contains two or more events.
Bettors betting in Fortuna via a computer can use the superticket function, where you can more easily move individual matches between groups.
The maximum win on Fortuna for all bets is 5,000,000 CZK.
Fortuna also offers a cash-out function, so you can request a ticket payout before the match is over. You can sell a ticket with live bets and accumulated bets. This feature is also available through downloadable applications or mobile-optimized websites.
As of 2/2019, you do not have to pay handling fees when betting at Fortuna branches.
The Fortuna betting office also offers betting via SMS.
Bet Second chance or double chance is a unique bet that you will only find on Fortuna. It is a combination of a bet on the 1st half and the total result.
In addition to sports betting, there is also Fortuna Vegas Casino, where you can play a variety of games such as online roulette, slot machines, blackjack or dice.
On the Fortuna website, you will find a large number of live bets, whether on football, hockey, basketball, volleyball or handball. In Fortuna, there are more live bets on the Czech football/hockey league than in the other bookmakers.
Fortuna used to work with the flash version of live betting for a long time, but at the end of 2018, it launched a new version of live betting in HTML. With the new version came various improvements such as better odds display, an expanded overview of opportunities in the main overview or watching two or more live streams at once. In addition, there are ticket functions that allow you to share, advertise or insert a ticket into the chat.
When betting live, you can use the Speed Bet function, but you must activate it. This function allows you to place a live bet after clicking on the odds (you will determine the bet values in advance in the account settings).
The bookie does offer live streaming as well. In the live betting section, you will find live broadcasts on tennis, football, basketball, volleyball, KHL or NBA on Fortuna TV. The new version of live betting allows you to watch two or more live streams at once, but in order to watch these sports broadcasts, you must have money in the player’s account (minimum balance is enough). You should also have a placed bet from the previous week of any amount. In 2021, Fortuna expanded its live broadcasts to almost 400,000 live streams per year, including matches from UFC tournaments, NASCAR and the Ice Hockey World Championships.
