SportingBet Review

SportingBet aren’t the most popular in the UK betting market but that isnt because theyre a bad choice, they originally targeted customers from across Europe however due to the success that they have had overseas they have now begun expanding into the British markets. They are actually quite old in terms of betting sites, having been around since 1998 they quickly grew through their own acquisitions that have been on their behalf.

Website Layout

SportingBet is easy to use for both the new and experienced bettors, all of the tabs have been laid out clearly allowing customers of all experience levels to manoeuvre freely between all of the markets and products that are currently available for punters. They even have a dedicated casino and poker room if you want to dabble in a bit of that. The promotions can be found down the right hand side of the page and all of the markets that they currently offer odds on is located down the left hand side of the site.

There is a tab which contains a handy set of quick links which will allow you to navigate quickly to upcoming football matches and horse races. The bet slip will also pre-populate calculating your winnings as you add more bets to it.

Free Bet Offers

All new customers who sign up to SportingBet will be able to get a £50 , this is available for anyone who doesn’t already have a customer account and thats not all. There are a great selection of promotions which will keep you coming back for more such as cash back incentives, free bet offers and enhanced odds. If you want these to be sent to your inbox you need to make sure that you sign up for promotional offerings when registering your account.

While their selection of promotions isn’t quite as extensive as the likes of Bet365 they’ve done a good job at providing customers with a nice range of sports related bonuses to claim such as money back specials, acca insurance if you have a team that lets you down, tennis acca insurance, free bet specials, summer signing money back and the option to cash out your bets when you want to.


Not the best odds in the business but they are competitive, regularly on par with other big named bookmakers but you wont find them going the extra distance to be the top. You can expect similar odds to that of William Hill and Betfred, but they do cover an extensive range of markets both pre-match and in-play.


SportingBet offer one of the largest range of markets across a selection of different sports from across the globe, due to their international focus you will find every major footballing league covered from a huge selection of countries from the Brazilian Leagues to the Middle Eastern football leagues. So if you’re a fan of international football SportingBet is probably the place for you.

During any time there are over 20 different sports that are being priced up, so no matter what time you log in you’ll always have some form of sporting action to bet on. They also have turned their attention to American Sports covering American Football, Baseball, Ice Hockey, Basketball and Soccer.

They do actually sponsor the European Basketball League known as Euro League so you will also find in-depth coverage of Basketball in Europe.

Mobile Betting

SportingBet have designed applications for all types of smart phones, meaning no matter whether you’ve got an Android, iOS or Windows powered phone or tablet you will be able to enjoy their dedicated betting application. The app incorporates everything that you’d get on the desktop site onto the small screen with the ability to bet on both pre match and the in-play betting markets.

Sporting bet Mobile app

There is also the option to head straight to the website and use their mobile optimised version, this requires no download so if you’re a bit stuck for space and don’t want to have the dedicated application on your mobile you could always bookmark the website on your mobile internet.

In-Play Betting

With in-play betting becoming ever so popular SportingBet have added their own console to allow their customers to place a bet on the following sports football, tennis and baseball. The console itself isn’t the best and we found it to be quite lacking however we believe this is more than made up with their selection prematch markets that you can find.

SportingBet Payment Methods


While they don’t have the best range of promotions for their existing customers to claim and their in-play console isn’t the most inclusive one we’ve bet we’ve looked past this and found that their extensive range of pre match markets especially on international football in combination with a pretty hefty welcome bonus to claim and thats why we’ve got them ranked in our top 10 best betting websites.
