There are some excellent sportsbooks on the market today that I would never recommend to you as a Norwegian sports bettor simply because they fail to offer Norwegian Krone betting accounts. While these services might otherwise be a great place to bet, currency acceptance is such an important issue to highlight and there are several top quality sites that do offer you direct NOK wagering.
Why is this such and important issue? Quite simply, it saves you a lot of money on currency exchange fees. Otherwise you’d need to exchange your funds through your banking method of choice or potentially the sportsbook itself every time you deposit or withdraw funds from your betting account. With every transaction, you would lose approximately three to five per cent of the value of the amount transferred.
Unfortunately, you won’t see exactly how much you pay in fees. You will see your
exchange rate. However, your rate has been marked up from the day’s best rate used
by the exchange house. Currency exchange is actually one of the ways that many sportsbooks
make money -
Assume that you have begun betting online and you have made your first deposit, but have chosen a sportsbook that does NOT offer NOK accounts. You consider yourself a fairly active bettor making several bets every week, so you deposited 10,000 Kronor. Since the site you chose does not accept the Krone directly, you’ll actually need to purchase a balance in a supported currency. The most popular currencies include the Euro, Pound and US Dollar.
Let’s assume your chosen sportsbook currency balance is the Euro. The day’s best rate will be a long number that will look similar to 1.00 NOK = 0.120213 EUR. So if you were actually trading in large amounts on the World market, your 10,000 Kronor would be worth 1,202.13 Euros. However, the rate you will be given will essentially be a retail exchange rate that will build in a fee anywhere from 2.5% to 5% of the transacted amount.
So in this example, if the exchange-
The online sportsbooks listed above all value the Norwegian betting market sufficiently to offer Norwegian Krone accounts and support complementary banking methods that also deal in the Krone, ensuring that you may enjoy your money as you see fit and not lose nearly as much through exchange fees. If you would prefer to play with a website with a Norwegian Language betting interface from your desktop or mobile, three of the four listed sites offer this as an option.
BetVictor is known well in the UK for having the most competitive football odds. If football is going to be the sport on which you will focus more than any other, BetVictor should be at the top of your list. Read the BetVictor Norway review.

Unibet focuses heavily on the Nordic markets and provides some amazing coverage of sports betting, especially with their coverage of niche sports like ice hockey. If you like a breadth of sports, Unibet must be considered heavily. Read the Unibet Norway review.
How the list was created:
As general rule most sports betting review sites are built simply to present you
with as many brands as possible with logos and banners in the hopes that you will
recognise a brand that you know. Next to these logos you will likely see a 5-
As you can see from my list, several of the biggest names in the Norwegian market and names that are large within the global betting market are not listed. Unlike other sites, I’m not interested in simply trading on a brand that you know. I want you to play with the betting sites that I truly believe to be best for the Norwegian bettor.
Each site must satisfy the following criteria:
I have reviewed over 30 of the World’s top sportsbook companies from the perspectives of dozens of different national markets including the Norwegian perspective.
I’m not here to list every sportsbook, tell you what is wrong with them, and then hope to trade on their brand and logo because they have advertised and you know their name. I’m here to show you the best companies with which you may bet from Norway. My list is in alphabetical order with no order of preference. They all provide an excellent experience, but have their differences. Please read and enjoy responsibly.
