  • Recommended for beginners or casual players, who seek a good high ceiling matched deposit bonus
  • Bahigo offers between 91% and 93% profit margin, so it is not the highest payout bookmaker on the market

  • Overall: 8/10 - RECOMMENDED

Bahigo Welcome Bonus

100% up to 400 CHF + 250 CHF in Free Bets

Bahigo or Rivalo?

Formally known as Rivalo, Bahigo has secured its place as one of the top sports betting sites in Switzerland.

Since its launch date in 2019, the website has been offering its users sports betting as well as casino options with great bonuses and it shows no signs of slowing down.

In this review, we’ll take a look at the sports welcome bonus as well as the casino bonus.

I will go over the steps you need to take to claim the bonus, meet the requirements to receive the full amount and what things you need to be wary of, before deciding if Bahigo is the best option for you.

I know you are burning with desire to see Bahigo’s review.

So let’s get into it!

Step-by-step guide to get the full Bahigo bonus

How would I approach this bonus?

Here is the step-by-step guide to redeem the Bahigo bonus:

  1. I would deposit 200 CHF and make sure to select the 1:1 match bonus from Bahigo.
  2. I would wait a day (requirement) and deposit 200 CHF again for the next 1:1 bonus (must select it).
  3. Because my first deposit is a minimum of 200 CHF I get 4 x 25 CHF free bets

If you fulfil all the requirements the maximum amount you can earn in bonuses is 500 CHF.

The minimum bonus you can get is 15 CHF + 15 CHF = 30 CHF. The minimum qualifying deposit is 10 Euro or 15 Swiss francs, but to receive the final total 100 CHF bonus, your first deposit has to be at least 200 CHF.

How to can I withdraw?

To withdraw the bonuses you need to wager the deposit + bonus amount 3 times at odds of 1.80 minimum.

Given there are two separate bonuses, each needs to meet this requirement.

For example, if you bet your deposit and its bonus on a sports event, you need to bet 400 fr. at odds of 1.80 (at least), a total of 3 times to «release» your bonus.

For the second bonus, you need to do the same.

That makes a turnover of 6 times to get back the money you have deposited and been given as a bonus.

Don’t forget your free bets!

If you qualify for the 4 x 25 CHF bonus, by depositing 200 the first time, you will receive the first 25 the day after the first deposit.

The rest of the 25s will be gradually released every 7 days - on days 7, 14 and 21 after the deposit. Make sure to use them, as you only have 48 hours after their release before they expire.

It might seem a little strict, but Bahigo wants to reward regular players who are active and pay attention.

So mark your calendars!

Bonuses for existing players

In case you are worried about what happens after you are done with the welcome bonus, there is no need to panic!

Bahigo offers generous and entertaining bonuses for existing players too.

Let’s have a look at some of the top bonuses if you are a returning customer:

What about the website?

Bahigo doesn’t currently offer a mobile application, but it is only a matter of time before they do.

Currently, there is a mobile-optimised website you can access from your Android or iOS devices. While the site features neat buttons at the bottom, for quicker navigation, the front page does seem a little cluttered and confusing at first. But as with anything, once you know the ins and outs of the platform you can be sure to find everything you need in a few seconds.

Here is what the website looks like on my Samsung Galaxy S21:

What about Bahigo’s number of betting markets outcomes?

Bahigo has put itself in an interesting situation.

Currently, the website seems centred primarily on newer players and novices who do not need as many options and choices as say, pro bettors.

Sometimes Bahigo really delivers, and big at that, but other times the numbers leave more to be desired.

To put it into perspective, here is a comparison between the available markets for the World Cup and then on other international matches on Bahigo vs bet365:

Payout margin

Another reason pro bettors might not always choose Bahigo as their top pick is the payout percentage.

I will use football for this example, as my preferred sport to bet on. Most top bookmakers take 5% or lower as their margin, while on average Bahigo takes 9% on general football match winnings and about 6.6% for big competitions such as the World Cup.

That can be forgiven though, as the bookmaker makes it easy for new players to get some skin in the game and try out their first bets with the variety of sports available on the site.

I looked at the payout from a three-way market to gauge how much the most popular bookmakers pay on average.

Here is a table to illustrate how Bahigo stacks up next to the competition in terms of payout:

Payout margin comparison Bahigo Bahigo Bahigo Bahigo
Payout %92.66%91.79%91.64%88.45%

Sports available on Bahigo

Bahigo offers a good number of sports that most people would be interested in. From football, basketball, volleyball, tennis and horse racing, to F1 and virtual sports for Swiss fans to enjoy. While there are certainly more sports and events available on other sports bookmakers, Bahigo has the basics covered.

As it is currently the norm, Bahigo doesn’t disappoint and offers its users live betting options on both sports and virtual sports.

I was able to watch my favourite virtual sports games without logging in, which is also a plus!

Here is the full list of all 24 sports available on Bahigo:

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Tennis
  • Volleyball
  • Ice Hockey
  • Handball
  • Formula 1
  • Snooker
  • Table Tennis
  • Darts
  • Futsal
  • American Football
  • Rugby
  • Alpine Skiing
  • Ski Jumping
  • Aussie Rules
  • Floorball
  • Golf
  • Bandy
  • Field Hockey
  • MMA
  • Cycling
  • Waterpolo
  • Boxing
  • Biathlon
  • Cross-Country

Sports betting on Bahigo

Football betting on Bahigo

Admittedly there aren't too many markets available for most football games, but Bahigo covers the basics.

You get your odds on who is going to win the game, the rest of the match or who will score the next goal.

The good news is that Bahigo has more markets available than bet365 when it comes to the World Cup!

In this situation, even experienced players can benefit from registering with the Swiss provider.

Winter sports on Bahigo

With mountains this high and terrain suitable for it, the Swiss have no choice but to enjoy some winter sports.

Bahigo offers punters a selection from ice hockey, for those who like flat surfaces and low altitudes, to Alpine skiing, ski jumping and Biathlon for those looking to bet on Switzerland's cold-loving, adrenaline-seeking daredevils.

Bahigo Tennis

You didn't think I would forget to mention tennis in a Swiss sportsbook review, did you?

After all, the name Roger Federer has been instilled in my mind from early childhood by my grandmother, who seems to love that man - understandably so!

When it comes to Tennis, Bahigo offers a fair number of games to bet on as well as a decent number of outcomes.

If you are seeking to get more options for Tennis though, you might find bet365 with at least 3 times as many markets available, more suitable for your needs.

Check out our full bet365 review, which although not directly pointed at the Swiss market, still covers the full bet365 experience.

Are there virtual sports on Bahigo?

If you are more into virtual sports, Bahigo doesn't disappoint on this front either.

The available live games you can bet on include Football, Basketball, Tennis, Baseball and Virtual Dog and Horse races.

Those childhood NBA2K games coming to haunt you yet?

No matter if you are a morning lark or a night owl, there are matches available 24/7 on the platform, so you won't be left scrambling for a game to bet on.

User experience

Bahigo's website could use some user-friendliness and quality-of-life improvements.

The search bar does offer suggestions, but it is very slow to do so, so you better know precisely what you are looking for or at least make no spelling mistakes, as it won’t show you anything.

Sometimes it can be a little complicated to get precisely the game you are looking for or to go to a specific World Cup match, given that’s what’s hot right now in November/December, but with a bit of digging around and tweaking you’ll get used to finding games quickly and efficiently.

Live betting on Bahigo? Is it good?

The Bahigo site has a section where you can bet on live sports, but instead of watching the game live, you can see the field and an animated representation of the events in real-time.

Below is an example of a live football game directly from Bahigo's website.

Odds format

Given the popularity of the two main odds formats - decimal and fractional, I was surprised to see only decimal and American formats included.

But hey, if you are a US citizen looking to settle in the land of compact knives and Alpine chocolate, you might benefit from it.

Decimal (1.23)

American (+200)

Customer Support

I had a pleasant interaction with Bahigo’s Live chat support.

They have integrated a queue system for the chat, so you know how long you have to wait.

I was the only one in the queue at 12:30 pm, so it was not busy. The response time is about 1 minute.

Live chat support answered in German, but they were courteous enough to switch to English immediately after my message.

While they were answering my question, the chat agent offered me a link to check out an ongoing tennis game to keep me entertained.

Something I really liked about the chat support feature is that when I switched to a different tab to see the game, the chat window stayed open and I didn’t have to worry about missing a reply.

Overall customer support is very reliable and willing to help and provided as much information as I needed.

And to answer the question, yes crypto deposits count towards the bonus. I haven’t personally tried it but was curious enough to save you the headache and get the answer out there.

How can I deposit and withdraw money from my Bahigo account?

Bahigo deposit methods

For immediate deposits you can use the following methods:

  1. Sofort

  2. paysafecard

  3. Visa Card/Mastercard

  4. Neosurf

  5. ecoPayz

  6. Neteller

  7. Skrill

  8. CASHlib

  9. MuchBetter (Crypto - BTC, ETH, LTC, XRP)

    Slow deposit methods:

  10. SEPA transfer

If you don’t mind the waiting, you can also use a bank transfer via SEPA. It might take a few days before Bahigo receives and verifies your deposit, so patience is key here!

Bahigo withdrawal methods

It is important to note that you will need to complete your identity verification before being able to withdraw, so make sure you have your ID, proof of address and proof of funds ready. In case you have any questions, support is always happy to help you with a list of all accepted documentation.

Immediate or same-day withdrawal methods:

  1. Skrill
    You can use Skrill to issue a withdrawal from Bahigo immediately and the funds should arrive within 24 hours.

  2. Cryptocurrency
    Yes, you CAN use cryptocurrencies to withdraw funds from Bahigo. The accepted cryptos are BTC, ETH, LTC, and XRP, and the transactions happen through the website/mobile application Much Better, which you can select during the withdrawal process. The people over at Much Better also manually review transfer requests, but crypto withdrawal times are much faster. After successful confirmation of your request, you can expect the blockchain to take 30 to 60 minutes before the funds arrive in your crypto wallet.

    Slower withdrawal method:

  3. SEPA transfer
    Although Bahigo says SEPA transfers take 3 to 7 days, in my experience, they only took 1 to 2 days, so I was happy and didn’t stress about receiving my funds.
    However, what I don’t specifically love is that there are no automatic transfers. Instead, a Bahigo employee has to manually verify and approve each transfer, which might delay the whole withdrawal process during busy times.

If you want to bet with cryptocurrency on Bahigo you can use MuchBetter, which allows users in Switzerland to deposit and withdraw various cryptocurrencies to and from betting sites.

What is the real Bahigo site?

The Swiss Gambling Supervisory Authority, Gespa and ESBK have restricted access and have added most of Bahigo’s domains to a blacklist started in 2019.

Currently, the only reliable and accessible Bahigo websites from Switzerland are:

bahigo89.com and ch.bahigo.com.

The numbers will likely change, but it is still Bahigo's site!

What about casino games?

Bahigo offers both casino and live casino games for your enjoyment.

With 1000+ games on the website and an up-to-par casino bonus, you have hours of exciting and various games to wager on.

While not the original well-known titles, many games are close replicas and give off the same vibe and feel while playing.

Bahigo’s «Great Rhino» is a personal favourite of mine, as I find it beautiful in its simplicity and the music is kind of catchy too.

I tested the game out by using the «Play for fun» option.

After spinning about €70, I got €136 in free spins. Not bad for just holding the Spacebar key without letting go.

Now I am not saying you are going to get the same results when playing with real money, so take my experience with a grain of salt and be mindful out there.

Still, it’s a fun game to play!

An important mention is that you can play any of the casino games for free and test them out before you deposit money. All you have to do is make sure the «Play for fun» button on top of the game is ticked.

How to claim Bahigo's Casino Bonus

Keep in mind that you can only redeem either the sports bonus or the casino bonus, so choose wisely.

Here is a step-by-step guide to take full advantage of the casino bonus, if that is the bonus you choose to use when registering.

Step 1: Deposit a minimum of 20 CHF to qualify for the 100% bonus match. You can deposit as much as 750 CHF and receive another 750 CHF from Bahigo.

Step 2: Wager/bet the initial deposit and the received bonus amount 40 times within 30 days, to be able to withdraw it (roulette contributes only 20% and blackjack only 10% towards that goal. In addition, table games don’t count, so make sure to focus primarily on slot games to speed up the process).

Step 3: Use your 50 free spins for the «Mustang Gold» game within 48 hours of your first deposit (any winnings should be wagered 25 times within 7 days if you want to keep them!).

FAQ - Bahigo

Is Bahigo legit? It is legal?

Bahigo is licensed in Curacao and is legit and serious.

It is not necessarily legal, but that is because the Swiss government has allowed only a few bookmakers to legally provide services in the country.

While you should consult a lawyer or check the regulations once again, before betting, you could practically bet on Bahigo in Switzerland.

All that changes for you is that you need to pay taxes on your winnings.

Are there Bahigo bonuses for existing players?

Yes! There are many bonuses available for existing players. Punters who complete the welcome bonus requirements are able to take advantage of the many existing bonuses, from deposit matching to free bets and boosted winnings!

Is it easy to withdraw from Bahigo?

Yes! You can use Skrill and MuchBetter to withdraw within 24 hours and you can use a SEPA bank transfer to withdraw within 3 to 7 days. Once you have cleared the bonus wagering requirements you should have no problems requesting a withdrawal.

Is the Bahigo welcome bonus fair?

Yes! Most other bookmakers have way higher turnover requirements, while for Bahigo it is 3 times the deposit amount and 3 times the bonus amount with odds 1.80 or more.
With 30 days to complete, there is plenty of time to finish the task and "clear" your funds, so you can withdraw them.

Can I use crypto to bet on Bahigo?

Yes, you can! You need to use MuchBetter to deposit your crypto, which will be turned into CHF and allow you to bet on the bookmaker.

Final Verdict

While Bahigo may not have the best-looking website of the bunch, they certainly have a few things going for them well!

I would love to see them improve their website on both desktop and mobile, to give their users’ eyes some rest.

I would also hope Bahigo works a bit on their bet selection for some smaller games and starts offering a wider variety of sports. I believe the addition of eSports might give the site the needed boost to put it at the top of Swiss betting websites.

For now, the brilliant customer support team, and variety of sports and casino games are sufficient enough to make me recommend Bahigo as a good bookmaker in Switzerland.
