World of Sports Site

The Marshall’s website is simple and elegant. From the moment it loads you can see that a lot of care and thought have been put into the Turfsports based product. The colours are great and the layout is very easy to navigate as well as being pleasing on the eye. It’s not all sunshine and roses though, there are few things we didn’t care for but all in all it’s a good experience.

This really is one of the strong points of Marshalls World of Sport and we’d like to commend them for their efforts.

Marshall’s Betting Promotions

Marshall’s have improved in leaps and bounds in the promotions department. In the past there were little to no promotions to speak of but fortunately that has changed. They currently offer a R200 sign on bonus and several other event based promotions. It’s a big improvement from the bookmaker and we hope to see more of the same in the future.

Fica your Account

Overall Experience 

Marshall’s World of Sport have done very little wrong when to comes to punter experience. The site is a pleasure to use on desktop and mobile as well as being comprehensively stacked with all the markets you need.

The drawbacks are the lack of decent promotions as well as the smallish sign on offer. Other than that they’ve covered all the bases and have a pretty friendly customer service department that were quick to help us. We’d recommend them in a heartbeat if you are punter looking for a solid book with a rich history.
