Sky Bet Overview
Anyone based in the United Kingdom will instantly recognise this brand, they once were part of the overall BskyB company who probably provide TV and broadband services to the majority of households in the United Kingdom. They originally took over a small internet betting company in the early 2000’s and thanks to their massive investment managed turn it around into the online bookmakers that you see today. Recently they have sold Sky Bet to another company who has taken over their gambling arm but have kept the branding the same.
Layout & Interface
The layout of the site is instantly recognisable to anyone who has ever used any of their other internet services such as their Sky Sport site or the Sky News website. Everything has been laid out clearly to prevent customers getting lost while trying to navigate the site with as little images & banners as possible which reduces the overall load on the browser reducing loading time and increasing the overall speed of the site itself. All of the sports that Sky Bet currently offer markets on are down the left hand side, with the odds/matches displayed down the middle and the betting slip on a pop out box on the right hand side of the page.
Sky Bet offer markets on a wide selection of sports from across the world from football to hockey, horse racing to snooker they cover the vast majority of top leagues from popular sports. However their main focus lies with the UK market and specifically on both football and horse racing. Here you will find the widest selection of markets allowing you to place bets on everything from the win, correct score, first goal scorer, over/under corners and more. Definitely worth taking a look at everything on offer as it does vary depending on which sport you’re planning to bet on.
In-Play betting is as popular as ever at the moment, more and more customers are demanding better consoles with a wider selection of sports and markets than ever before and the bookies are now providing this. Sky Bet isn’t one to skip over this feature either, they offer one of the better in-play betting consoles on our site, covering all major sporting events that are being televised you’ll be able to bet on football, horse racing, tennis, golf, cricket, basketball etc.
Sky Bet have provided customers with a pretty solid mobile experience whether you head over to the app store and download the dedicated mobile application or you play straight from the website itself you’ll get the same degree of professionalism that you got on the main site as you would on the mobile. All of the key features which make this site appealing such as its large selection of markets and great in play betting are all available on the mobile phone and this even includes the £20 free bet that new customers are able to claim.
While this is one of the smaller betting offers that we have available on site its still quite a good one thanks to the minimal investment required to trigger it. All you need to do is deposit £5 and you will get a £20 free bet to play with and unlike Coral you get the full bonus at once to use however you want. Once you’ve claimed your bonus you will also be able to get involved with all the other promotions on site such as the Sky Bet free bet club which will give you £5 in free bets every week that you deposit and wager a minimum amount of £25, but don’t worry if you miss out on one week of the club all you need to do is deposit and wager £40 the following week and you’re back in.
Sky Bet customers will benefit from a great support service which is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. You can get in touch with a member of the team via the live chat function which is available on site, we’ve found this to be the easiest and the most efficient way of getting help but you can also opt to reach out by calling them up or over email.
There is an incredibly diverse range of payment methods that are available for customers to use at Sky Bet, to be honest though we wouldn’t expect anything less from a business of this size. You’ll be able to choose from depositing into your account by using any of the major debit or credit cards, e-wallets such as Neteller, Skrill or Paypal and even some of the lesser known methods such as prepaid debit cards and you can even write a cheque.
Without a doubt the quickest method that we have used has to be the e-wallet methods but we always advise when claiming a welcome bonus to use your debit or credit card.
For punters from the UK, SkyBet are one of our top sites to play at. They provide a nice clean interface which is easy to use for both new and experienced bettors, great promotions that keep punters coming back for more, a great dedicated mobile application and round the clock support. Definitely worth having an account with especially if you like to bet on the Premier League and UK Horse Racing.
